@ Diagon Alley
Ginny closed the register till with a *bing* and then looked at the next customer. To her shock it was Harry.
"Harry?" She semi yelled in surprised. Harry smiled and laid down a broom servicing kit onto the counter.
"Hey Ginny." Harry greeted. "I've been meaning to get me another one of these but I always seem to forget about it..."
Ginny smiled then nodded. Harry too then went silent as he handed her some money for the product.
"Weasley..." A deep voice called from behind her. Ginny turned to see her manager holding up a piece of parchment. "That bloody owl of yours just came in with a message."
Ginny looked at Harry questioningly.
"Go on..." Harry stated, also curious.
Ginny went to grab the message then read it quickly. "Oh SOD OFF!" She responded angrily.
"What's wrong?" Harry asked.
"George and I have to move back in with Mum and Dad at the burrow for a while... Give Fred and Angelina some married space.... I can't do that, I have too much-"
"Come stay at my place with Ron and I..." Harry suggested calmly. "You're always welcome Ginny, you know that right?"
Ginny held her breathe for few seconds before finding the words to reply. "Uh- Really?" She finally asked, feeling her face heat up.
"Yeah, you and George can come stay as long as you like..."
Ginny could feel the heat slowly drift away now. Harry had thought of her as family and thats as far as it went. She should've known that. "Thanks Harry..." She responded rather calmly this time then attempted to finish serving Harry.
"Okay well just send us an owl when you and George will be coming by okay?" Harry concluded heading out the store waving.
Ginny waved back then as she could see that he was gone she covered her face with her hands and screamed into them.Posted by Julie at October 22, 2004 11:06 PM
