The Untold Story

Of Harry and Ginny

***

Harry walked out of the Headmaster's office in Hogwarts and went back into the Great Hall. Hardly anyone was there who hadn't lost a family member or a friend. Harry looked around and saw all the Weasley's weeping over Fred's body again. All except Ginny. She was standing in back of them, a few paces away. Then, she turned to Harry, he didn't smile, and didn't frown, he seemed expressionless. Then she turned away and walked out and to the lake. Harry hesitated for a moment but then walked outside as well, no one bothering to come up to him and congratulate him on his victory. Ginny was sitting at the gleaming lake in the dark night. Harry stopped himself before he walked any further. Ginny saw his reflection in the slow moving water, than he started advancing slowly to her.

"Hi," he said, still standing up. She didn't look at him. She kept looking at the shiny lake.

"Hi," she replied back, no smile on her face.

"Are you alright?" Harry asked.

"I was enjoying some alone time," she said. Harry didn't comment on this. After a few moments of figuring he wasn't going to say anything, she spoke up.

"Fine," she muttered.

"You don't look that fine-"

"I'm fine, Harry," she interrupted him. He sighed and sat down by her.

"What's wrong Ginny?" he asked. She finally looked up from the lake into his green eyes.

"Well done Harry," she whispered.

"That doesn't exactly answer my question," said Harry.

"You're alive," she whispered.

"That's what's wrong?" Harry asked her, trying not to sound to paranoid.

"That's just the basic idea," Gin said.

"Then what are the details?" Harry asked. Ginny sighed.

"You were dead…and I thought you were dead," said Ginny, tears welling up in her eyes.

"Then you came back and I thought…you were alive. You pretended to be dead. I believed you-" Tears were now coming out of her eyes.

"Aww, Gin," Harry said and pulled her into a hug. She wept into his chest.

"It was the only way I could. If he knew I wasn't alive he would've killed me straight off, or worse," Harry said, rubbing her back.

"But I'm alive now, I'm here," Harry said. Ginny sniffed.

"I'm never going to forget what happened last year," Ginny said.

"Neither will I. But breaking up with you was the only way. And if I hadn't and not gone out to look for the…horcruxes-" Harry said deciding it would be okay if Ginny knew about them-"He would still be alive and more people would be dead, including me." She looked up at him.

"Will you take me back, Ginny?" Harry mumbled. She exhaled and pressed her lips to his quickly and then continued to lie down on his chest while Harry kept rubbing her back soothingly.

"So…" someone started and Ginny and Harry turned around and looked at a figure standing in back of them.
