5. I want you back
Today were the funerals of Fred and Lupos and Tonks. Speaking of Lupos, I realised something. I still had to write a little speech to say at his funeral. somehow my body had shifted in some kind of mode that didn't allow tears while writing it. It was hard though, I had never done something like this so I didn't really know what I wanted to say. I stayed up long to write the speech and I finally went to bed to get some rest at about 3 o'clock in the morning. The funeral would start at 12.00 so I could sleep in a bit. I fell asleep, feeling satisfied with my speech but still very very sad.
the next morning I woke up at 9.30 so I still had plenty of time to dress up and reread my speech. I was sitting in the Griffindor common room in my favorite chair, in front of the fire. For some reason nobody came to talk to me like they had done the past two days. I was extremely grateful they didn't. Ginny came walking up to me, standing behind my chair, as if afraid I would shove her away. I turned around and grabbed her hand. I pulled her in front of me "Ginny, do you have something to tell me?" "Well, yes actually , I wanted to talk to you since you woke up the day after the battle. You never seemed to remember and you seemed happy so I thought I wouldn't disturb you with the things I have to say...." I saw tears forming in her eyes. I knew Ginny wasn't the girl to cry, The only time I had seen her cry was when Fred died in the battle "Ginny" I said slowly "Ginny, you do never disturb me with anything that you say. I'm glad to listen to you. I'm sorry for acting so ignorant the last days. I must have really hurt you. I'm So Sorry Ginny." You mean that Harry?" She asked "Of course! Why would I lie to you about this Gin?" "I don't know" "Well, I believe you wanted to tell me something very, very important?" "Yes, I do" she said, now more confident. The whole commonroom with pretty much all of the Griffindor's in it, was listening. They didn't see it so they continued.
"Harry, I don't know if I should ask this but, Harry, were we ever together?" I blinked in disbelief, why would she ask something like that? But I decided it was just some kind of reassurance she needed so I answered "Yes, before I left to destroy the... Horcruxes.... we.. we were a couple, right?" "I believe so" she smiled "but you broke up with me because you went for your search for the horcruxes, I know it was to protect me from Him but... You broke up with me...." Suddenly it hit me. Of course, how could I forget! I broke up with her but never asked her out again. She was trying to get me to ask her back. And so I was planning to do, right now! "Ginny"I said slowly and thoughtfull. I stood up. She looked quite angry with me. I went on one knee and said to her "Ginny, Will you please forgive me? I was being a selfish jerk in the past and I broke up with you. When me, Ron and Hermione were staying in the tent and we were stuck because of a lack of information I got myself the habit of looking at your dot, on the map. I could do it for hours. I missed you. I missed you so so so much. So Ginny, what I wanted to ask you, Will you be my girlfriend again?" I watched her from my kneeling position and the whole commonroom was holding its breath for a second, waiting for her reply. "Well of course Harry!` she shouted and she kissed me. I was glad to have her back so I kissed her back.
Then out of nowhere the whole room cheered at them.
