A/N: Yes, I know I need to stop signing myself up for too many challenges/competitions, but I just can't help myself! Another for HPFC (what other forum do I use?) and this one for the Book Title Challenge. I was given the book title, Two Truths and a Lie by Sara Shepherd,along with both my chapter titles. Read and enjoy.
"Ginny, I'm sorry. You know I love you but it's just too dangerous." Harry told the distraught girl gently. He didn't want to do this but if the Death Eaters caught wind of him and Ginny then she was as good as dead and he wanted that even less.
"But Harry that doesn't matter to me," Ginny cried out. Harry tried to remain stoic but the tears were falling anyway.
"You know I love you, Gin and that's why I have to leave. I really am sorry but we can't be together anymore." He murmured, wishing that it didn't have to be this way. That he didn't have to leave his beautiful Ginny and that they could stay together and maybe, in a few years, he could be proposing instead.
"I'll wait for you; even if you never come back, I'll wait for you." She vowed.
"Ginny, don't-" She cut off his protestations.
"No, Harry. It's too late." She walked away from him and once she had rounded the corner, he broke down into sobs.
"Why?" He whispered. "Why did it have to be me?" He let out a soundless scream and prayed fervently that he came back alive so that he could be with her as he heard her screams of anguish from where she had collapsed.
