"Harry, do you really think, she's a Death Eater voluntarily?", Ginny asked offended.
"Yes, I am positive she is. She would have told us, if she had been forced into it, don't you think?", he asked her.
"Perhaps, she was threatened not to do so.", Ginny tried defending me.
My stomach ached and turned at the sounds of their conversation. I had been too cowardly, to tell my friends about this secret and she tried to defend me, nevertheless. Never had I felt as bad, as I felt that very moment, in the cupboard, spying on my friends. Before Ginny, I had never had a girl friend, she was the first and only and I couldn't bare her being disappointed of me.
"Ginny, I am so sorry, I've been a bad friend for you.", I blurted out, as I pushed the cabinet's doors open.
"You eavesdropped on us?", Ginny choked and broke out in tears.
"Did Lord Voldemort send you, to spy on us? Did he want you to stay friends with us, so you could receive more information?", Harry snapped and walked towards me.
"Yes, he did," I admitted, "but I wanted to stay friends with you, because I sincerely like you."
"Will you swear to god and the life of your parents, that you won't tell anybody, not even Lord Voldemort himself, about the DA?", Harry asked but it sounded more like a command.
"The Dark Lord," I corrected him, "yes I do. What's the DA anyways?"
Ginny looked at Harry and he nodded.
"DA is the abbreviation for Dumbledore's Army.", Ginny begun explaining.
"Wait, why do you have to ask for Harry's permission, before you talk to me?", I wanted to know.
"It's the same with you and Draco. I bet he knows where you are right now.", Harry answered.
"No, no to your surprise, he doesn't. In fact, I was searching for him and thought he'd might be in the room of requirement. Instead of turning out at our usual spot, I entered this room. However, I heard footsteps from outside and decided it'd be for the better, if I hid and so I did.", I snapped.
"May I continue?", Ginny required and looked at Harry again.
The moment he wanted to shake his head again, Ginny threw him a look and he nodded.
"The DA exists, to train our students how to perform certain spells. Harry is the teacher, which gives him the right, to involve or not involve certain people in our activities.", Ginny explained.
"May I join then?", I asked and they looked at each other.
