A/N: Here's a teaser to start my next story. I've almost got it completely written. I'm hoping to post a chapter a day. I should be able to as four are complete already. :) Many thanks to Jonelle, my beta and all of my friends on LJ who have commented to help make this better!


December 1, 1999

Harry stared at the ring he held between his forefinger and his thumb, rolling it back and forth, watching the diamond reflect the light from the fire in the sconce on the wall. Is this a ring that Ginny would even want? He scoffed at himself. Don't you really mean would Ginny even want you, much less the ring? It's only been a little over a year since the two of you even got back together. He sighed, knowing that his internal debate would continue until the moment he summoned enough courage to actually ask Ginny the most important question he would ever ask anyone. Standing up from his kneeling position in front of his parents' trunk in his vault in Gringotts, he pocketed the ring after placing it back in the box in which it had been stored. After exiting the vault, he made his way back through Diagon Alley, going straight to his office at the Ministry. He set wards preventing anyone from opening his desk drawer who wasn't a blood relative of his after placing the ring box in it. Sighing again, he started to work his way through the paperwork on his desk. An Auror's work is never done.
