Written for the 30 Drabbles in 30 days challenge
Prompt: "I chose you"
The clouds thundered, the lightening rattled, and the sky cried with her. But she stayed there, always and forever. She could not face him. Not now, not ever. She had so many questions to ask, yet she did not want any answers.
"GINNY!" He shouted, running after her.
She thought of running away, once more, but she knew it do her no good. He would catch her in the end, he always did.
"GINNY!" He bellowed again, this time coming closer to her.
She stayed there, not answering to his calls, yet not moving either.
She could feel him standing behind her. He wrapped his arms around her, burying his head in her neck. She turned around, and he took her lips with his own. He kissed her gently on lips, and then cheeks and then forehead.
"Ginny, Ginny, Ginny, why did you run away?" He asked her and lightening bolted somewhere behind. There was a loud clap of thunder and he held her closer.
"Because.. Because.." She tried to tell him, express her feelings, but no words would come out.
"Tell me Ginny, why?"
"I am sick of being the second best Draco. It's always that,"
"Second best? Why do you think that Ginny? You are the only girl for me, you little fool," He said, brushing her hair away from her eyes oh so slightly.
"I never was perfect. I never claimed to be perfect. I cannot be as rich as Pansy or as charming as Astoria. I cannot compete with them. I never could," She said, tears now streaming down her face. She hated crying. She hated being weak. Yet here she was, out in a thunderstorm, crying her heart out. It was so cliché, but the only difference is, she would have no happy ending. She never did.
"Ginny, you are the perfect girl for me," He said, his voice thick with raw emotions.
"Then why did you agree to marry Astoria? Why? If I was good enough for you, why did you need another girl?"
Thunder roared behind them, but they paid no heed.
"I agreed to marry her. But I didn't marry her. Because you are the girl for me,"
"I was always the second best," She said, weeping the little blots of water running down her eyes, being grateful that they were oh so unnoticeable in the darkness.
"Ginny, I choose you. You are not any second best option. I left Astoria back there, for you. Because you are the girl I want to spend my entire life with, not Astoria," He said, pulling her closer and closer to himself.
She wrapped her arms around him, and he claimed her lips with his own. Maybe, just maybe, she would get the perfect happy ending. Or rather, the beginning.
Well this is really end. This was the last chapter and I would like to thank all my reviews for supporting me and reviewing each and every chapter :) This was a little longer, but I just wanted to give it the perfect conclusion. Do review please
