Next day, Harry didn't have any classes because it was a Sunday. It's another day to spend time at the lake waiting for the girl's reply. Harry woke and ate his breakfast immediately and headed for the lake. He noticed that the bottle was moved from the tree to the edge of the lake again. He picked it up and saw pink paper in it. He read the message in it.
My dear Brave Warrior,
I know you're still having a hard time loving me, but that's okay, as long as you're right by my side I'll be fine. Anyway, with us meeting, I don't know what to say. At first I was shocked, but then I feel kind of happy and at the same time a little nervous because I'm finally going to meet you.
So, Room of Requirement as you have planned, tonight at 7. Ok? You don't need to reply to me, just be there at that time and don't disappoint me.
The Warrior's Angel
5 minutes before 7pm…
"Harry, where are you going?" Hermione asked. They were on their way to the Great Hall. "I'm going to meet the girl. I'll tell you the details later." Harry said as he left without waiting for a reply.
Harry rushed to the 7th floor corridor and saw a girl waiting at the spot where the Room of Requirement should be. The girl's back was all Harry could see, so he couldn't tell who the girl was. But he had a feeling that he knew this person because of her hair.
He approached the girl and patted her on the shoulder. The girl turned around and both of them were shocked with what they saw.
"G—Ginny… What are you doing?" Harry asked curiosity evident in his voice.
"I was about to asked you the same thing." Ginny said harshly.
"I asked first."
"Well, I'm here to meet someone." Ginny said turning her back on Harry.
"Who is it then?" He asked irritated.
"It's none of your business." Ginny merely shouted.
Could it be that my hunch is correct? Harry thought. "Well… ok… You see I'm here to meet someone too. I don't know her name exactly but I call her as my Shining Angel and I'm her Brave Warrior." Ginny blushed as she heard those words. "Do you happen to know a girl with that penname?" Harry asked. She didn't answer.
There was still no answer.
"I—I" Ginny sighed and turned to looked at Harry. "I'm the Shining Angel, Harry!" she blurted out then began to walk away. Harry followed her and said, "Really? You're my Shining Angel?" Happiness can be heard in his voice.
Ginny stopped at her tracks, Harry did the same, and said, "Yes I'm the Shining Angel. So what? I guess by now you probably think of me as some kind of desperate young woman who seeks help from another guy just so she could replace her old one." Ginny cried tears were running fast down her cheeks.
Harry wrapped his arms around Ginny but Ginny tried to push him away. Upon doing that, Harry tightened his grip around Ginny and said, "I would never ever think of any girl that way, especially you." At this point, Ginny had stopped struggling and just sobbed into Harry's chest.
"What do you say we go inside the Room of Requirement? I mean, I don't want to put all my plans to a waste." Harry said and Ginny nodded. Harry paced back and forth on the empty wall three times, muttering to himself. He knows exactly what kind of room he wanted. He just added something more special in it because now, the girl with him was Ginny.
Inside, the room was decorated with lots of photos of Harry and Ginny and lots of scattered candles. At the middle of the room, there was a table setting made for two and two candle lights at the center. Harry offered Ginny a seat and took the ones next to hers.
"This is so amazing Harry…" Ginny said in amazement but then she straightened her voice and said, "I mean this isn't so bad."
Harry smiled and said, "Thank you."
They ate dinner in silence and when they were done, Harry placed a hand on top of Ginny's and said, "You told me in your letters that you love me. But why are so mad at me?"
"Two reasons, Harry." Ginny said harshly. Harry felt the anger in her voice so he patted her hand and rubbed it gently. Ginny sighed. "One is for our break-up and two is for you loving another woman after all that we've been through."
"I'm not in love with another girl. I'm in love with you."
"When I first read your letter, I knew that it was you all along, only I didn't get my hopes up." Harry explained. "It's not just because of your story, but it's also because of the way you talk. It's so sweet and caring." Harry smiled. "And lastly your scent."
"My scent?" Ginny asked in disbelief.
"Yes, I can smell them while reading your letters."
"Why didn't you tell me that you knew all along that it was me?" Ginny accused.
"It's because I've made you so happy." Harry said calmly. "If I told you that I knew who you really were, you would probably stop writing to me and you'd be sad again. I know that for all of the people, you don't want me to be the one who's going to read your letters." Ginny blushed.
Harry knelt before her. He took her hands in his and placed them on her lap and said, "Ginny, I know that I've hurt you before and I'm sorry. Truly I am. But you know, writing to you these past few weeks made me realized something,"
"Yes, that no matter how hard we try to forget about each other, fate will always find a way to bring back together."
"Oh Harry…" Ginny wrapped her arms around Harry's neck and Harry did the same with her waist. Ginny sobbed into Harry's neck while he rubbed her back soothingly.
Harry pulled away from Ginny and asked, "Will you take me back?"
"Harry…" Ginny began.
"Please don't say no. I'll do anything for you. I promise." Harry said anxiously.
Ginny giggled which made Harry confused. "Of course I'll take back, I love you." Both were surprised with what Ginny had said and Ginny flushed a deep red. Harry pulled her for a kiss. At first, Ginny hesitated but then after a while she finally kissed back. Eventually, the need for air came to them so they pulled apart.
"I love you too, Gin." Harry smiled and Ginny's tears started to fall again. "I missed that nickname and of course you too."
At the Common Room…
Ron and Hermione were sitting on the couch, doing their Potions homework when Harry walked in.
"So, how did it go?" Hermione said with a lot of interest in her voice.
"It went well." Harry exclaimed.
"What does she look like?" Ron asked.
"She's tall, but not taller than I am. She has beautiful hazel brown eyes and has beautiful red hair."
"But that description perfectly fits—" Ron said but was cut by Harry. "Exactly, Ginny would you please come in here so that I may introduce you to my friends properly?"
"Of course Harry." Ginny giggled and soon she was at Harry's side.
"Okay, you guys have officially lost it. What just happened here?" Ron asked dumbfounded. Harry explained everything to Ron and Hermione.
"But why didn't you tell us that you already knew all along?" Ron asked.
"I just wanted to see how Ginny would take it if I was dating another girl." Harry laughed earning a playful punch from Ginny. "Ow… That hurt." Harry said rubbing his shoulder. "Really?" Ginny asked a little worried.
"Nah, I'm just kidding." Then Harry stole a kiss from Ginny.
"So that explains why Ginny wasn't at the table tonight." Ron said with a hint of realization in his voice.
"Well, it's nice to meet you Ginny Weasley." Hermione said as she held out her hand. The three of them looked at her in an odd way. "What? You did say you were going to introduce this special girl of yours, so I'm just being polite." Hermione explained and they all laughed.
Ginny shook her hand and said, "Nice to meet you too, 'Mione." Once again everyone laughed
