A/N: I had to redo this first chappie which has changed the outcome of the story on a whole as there is no way Ginny would have forgiven him that easily if it hadn't been changed.
"Good morning Ginny," cried Molly Weasley and Ginny Weasley found herself engulfed in a bone-crushing hug as her vision was obscured by her mother's frizzy red hair while she sobbed something about 'my baby…all grown up'. Ginny hugged her back and then extracted herself from her mother's grasp to embrace her father warmly. "Happy Birthday darling," Arthur Weasley smiled at his daughter, laying his Daily Prophet down on the table in front of him "you're of age!"
Ginny smiled to herself as she summoned a chair, revelling in the new found freedom of being officially an adult. However, her thoughts were soon pushed to the back of her mind as her twin brothers, Fred and George descended upond her cooing "oo itty bitty Ginnywinny is all grown up," said George, smiling evilly as Fred added "but you'll always be ickle Ginny-poo to us!" Grinning Ginny pushed both boys away "Sod off!" she mumbled before attacking her breakfast and thinking to herself "I love my family!"
As breakfast continued Hermione came down the stairs having had a sleep in, a very rare occurance for her. "Happy Birthday Gins," Hermione squealed as she rushed to hug her best friend, a present firmly clutched in her hand, "here open this!" Ginny hugged her back but firmly placed the present on the table in front of her "no, mum says not till the party tonight."
Molly heard this exchange and looked up from the stove, "Girls? The party starts at six but I would like it if you could get back here at quarter to if possible. Other than that you can shop all day at Diagon Alley if you wish." Ginny paused from sucking the salt off her fingers to respond with "Sure mum! Hey…who's coming to the party tonight?" Molly paused in the act of clearing the table to swat Ginny's fingers away from her mouth as she answered cheekily "Oh not to many people."
Ginny and Hermione enjoyed a fun day shopping and eating and laughing. They met up with Luna and Neville for lunch who were and eyebrow raising item. Luna was her usual dreamy self and Neville was bubbly and excited about the part that evening. Neville noticed Ginny lost in thoughts and asked her what was bothering her, "hmm, well so far you, Hermione and Luna are the only people I know of who are coming apart from my family." Ginny mused as she sucked thoughtfully on her spoon.
At six pm on the dot the fireplace roared to life and Andromeda and Teddy appeared out of the emerald flames. Soon after Neville and Luna appeared followed shortly by Bill and Fleur, Charlie and Percy. Moments later as Molly fussed over everyone Ron and Harry soared out of the sky to land gracefully. Ginny tensed when she saw Harry, as after the war they had had a nasty encounter where Harry had tried to make up with Ginny and she couldn't find it in her heart to forgive him for running off with her brother and best friend for a whole year. For some reason Hermione had been an entirely different story…
Harry was sought after by most teenage witches, and there were many extremely attractive witches among those. Ginny had not wanted to have her heart broken and she had suspected that he would have been wooed by some blonde, big-boobed girl at some stage. It wasn't fair on her to fall in love only to get her heart ripped to shreds and it wasn't fair on him to have to avoid pretty young women throwing themselves at him.
As it turned out Ginny was right in suspecting that he was tempted as he had a different girl on his knee every week according to the Prophet.
Ginny shook herself from this lapse in concentration and forced herself to go and accept presents and congratulations. As she was receiving a hug from Fleur, Fleur whispered in her ear "oo look veery bootiful tonight, yees! Oo must make 'arry a veery jealoos maan!" Ginny blushed and thanked Fleur for the compliment before moving on to Bill and marvelling at the French lady's incredible insight.
After being completely stuffed with food, suffocated with hugs and spoiled with gifts Ginny felt the need for a walk in the deserted orchard. She waited till everyone was occupied and slipped away, seemingly unnoticed.
As she walked through the cool orchard Ginny paused to admire her old apple tree and the swing that even now swung lazily in the cool summer breeze. As she sighed contentedly a pair of arms grabbed her, one covering her mouth and smothering her protesting screams and the other snaking around her waist and pulling her tightly against her attacker.. As her heart pounded in terror she realized how scantily clad she was in her skimpy summer halter dress. She looked shakily into the face of her attacker and was startled to be looking into the face of a very drunk and sneering Harry Potter.
Poor Ginny was powerless to do anything as Harry had his fun. He didn't get very far before he collapsed into a drunken sleep but it was still too far to go when they had broken months ago and left her feeling hurt and used as picked her way around him back to the celebrations that were still going on.
A/N – Fred survived the battle but Remus and Tonks didn't. Please read and review it's my first fic!
