Some Brotherly Advice

Charlie stared blankly at the letter his older brother had just sent him. He sat down on the couch in his apartment wondering what Bill meant by the two words that were wrote on the small piece of parchment.

"Your turn."

He got up to get a quill and write back but as he did there was a knock on his front door.

"One minute," he called as he went to answer it.

When he opened the door he was surprised to see his younger sister Ginny there.

"Ginny, hey what are you doing here?"

"Hey Charlie, I need to talk to you about something. Can I come in?"

"Yeah sure, come on in. Do you want anything to drink?"

"No I'm ok thanks," Ginny said sitting down in one of Charlie's comfy arm chairs.

"So what is it that you want to talk about sis?" Charlie asked sitting down across from her.


Charlie's face dropped and he understood exactly what Bill's letter had meant.

"Uh…umm…come again?" he stammered.

"Come on Charlie, we're both adults here."

"Yeah I know but…Merlin Ginny, I don't know what to say."

"Well you could start by giving me some advice."

"The only advice I'm going to give you is don't do it."

"Your as bad as Bill."

"What did he tell you?"

"Nothing of any use. You know Charlie if you want to be better than Bill you could give me some advice."

Charlie smiled.

"I'm not ten years old any more Ginny, I don't care about beating Bill."

"Ok if you want to come second best to him forever."

"Wait a minute I am not second best to Bill. I'm way better than him."

Ginny smirked, her plan worked.

"Ok then prove it. Help me out and you will be better than him."

Charlie looked at her wearily.

"What do you need to know?"

"Ok well first of all, what age were you when you did it first?"

"Umm I think I was seventeen or eighteen."

"What about Bill?"

"Oh he was younger than me but if he didn't tell you himself I can't tell you."

Ginny sighed.

"I thought you'd say something like that."


"Well Bill said he would kill you if you told me anything, I suppose it's probably safer for you that way."

"Safer? Ha, Bill doesn't scare me. He was fifteen."

"Fifteen, really? No wonder he didn't tell me."

"Yeah Bill was really popular in school, come to think of it he's still really popular…git! Why did you want to know what age he was anyway?"

"Because I want to know what age all of you were, then I can figure out when is the right time."

"I think you should wait a few more years. What age are you now, like ten?"

"I'm nineteen Charlie and you know it."

"Yeah but I wish you were ten, then we wouldn't be having this conversation."

"Well I can leave if you want."


"You're supposed to say no and that you like having me around cause we haven't talked in a while."

Charlie laughed.

"Yeah I do like having you around but I'd prefer if we talked about something else."

"Oh no, you said you'd talk to me and we're talking about what I want."

"But it has been ages since we talked Gin, wouldn't you prefer to talk about something else?"

Ginny glared at him, a stubborn look on her face.

"Fine then. Periods!"

"Ok fine, what else do you want to know?"

Ginny smiled victoriously.

"Well me and Harry have been having some problems, well mostly him but I'm worried that it will affect our relationship in the long run."

"And those problems are?"

"Umm, well…"

"Come on Ginny. You finally got what you wanted, we're having a serious conversation, you can't get all shy now."

"Ok well lets put it this way, if you were trying to put something up on a shelf but it kept falling down, what would you call that?"

"It won't go up?"

Charlie stared at her blankly and then realised.

"Oh," he said. "So the problem is it won't go up?"

"Exactly," Ginny said.

Charlie laughed but then covered it with a cough as Ginny glared at him.

"And what exactly do you need me to tell you?" he asked.

"Well they say it happens to everyone, so did it ever happen to you?"

Charlie frowned, "Nope."


"Never ever."

Ginny looked upset.

"But hey, don't let that get you down. I'm sure if you ask everyone else, it must have happened to one of them."

Ginny sighed, "I guess."

"Is there anything else you need to know?"

"No, you've been helpful enough. Thanks Charlie."

"Anytime sis."

"Well I better get going," Ginny said getting up and going over to the door.

"See you soon," Charlie said.
