It was over.

The war with Voldemort was over, had been over for a month, but Harry still couldn't shake off the

guilt he felt for letting so many people die. Harry was visiting The Burrow in a few hours. It wasn't

that he didn't want to see them, but with Fred gone, it seemed like too much. Otherwise, more than

anything, he wanted to see two people: Ron and Ginny Weasley.


"Harry!" Mrs. Weasley hugged Harry hard.

"Mrs. Weasley, nice to see you."

"Hey, don't forget your best mate!" Ron apparated with Hermione.

"How could I, Ron?" Harry laughed.

"Harry! It's good to see you!" Hermione hugged him.

"Harry, don't steal my girl!" Ron exclaimed.

"No worries, mate." Harry laughed. "Um where's… um…George, your dad, Percy, uh…Gin-"Harry

was cut off.

"Harry?" A red-headed girl stepped into the room.

"Ginny?"

"It's good to see you."

"Er… good to see you too…"

"Um, Harry, mate, can I talk to you? In the family room, please?" Ron asked, his ears getting red.

"Sure, why not…" Harry followed Ron into the family room.

"Harry, I know that you sti-"

"Ron, I told you, I won't be involved with her anymore! You have to trust me on this, mate!"

"I know, Harry, it's just-"

"What? What is it?"

"It's just-"

"Sorry, but Mum told me to get you two." Harry recognized Ginny's voice automatically.

"Ok, we'll be there in a little bit, Ginny. Can you tell Mum-"

"No, she said that she wanted you in the kitchen immediately." She glanced at Harry. Harry suddenly

felt goosebumps along his spine, so he looked down.

"Ok then, Ginny. C'mon mate, let's go, I'm starving."

"Since when isn't he?" Harry mumbled to Ginny. She laughed, but stopped abruptly when she saw

Ron cast Harry a 'Harry-Shut-Your-Mouth-Before-I-Do' looks and her a 'Ginny-You-Know-What-I-

Told-You' looks. "I think we'll talk later." She whispered to Harry so only he could hear.


Harry was in Ron's bedroom when Ginny knocked on the door. "Can I come in?" she whispered.

"Hmm? Oh, yeah, sure. Here." He patted a seat next to him on the bed. Ginny sat down.

"So, um, how are you?" She began, awkwardly.

"Good, I guess." Harry replied.

"Listen, Harry, I need to tell you something…"
