Harry, don't be afraid

 

DISCLAIMER: Iown neither Ginny and Harry, nor any of the other names that feature in this story. They are all a creation of J.K Rowling, and belong to her and Warner Bros. However, I do own the story line and plot.

 

Note:In the next pages youíll read about a conversation in which Ginny and Harry exchange thoughts about the warís last night. And I mean it when I say they exchange thoughts, not words. It may sound weird, but when you are in love you can practically read the other personís mind. Well, donít ask me how, but Ginny and Harry have learned to communicate mentally, which comes in very useful. Ginny is at the Hogwartís castle, Harry and The Order of the Pheonix(which in my theory is an army built to fight against Voldemort, and protect Harry) are in an unknown place, ready to face Voldemort and his army.

 

If you could only read my mind....

By Abigail

 

 

 

 

Harry, don't be afraid. I'm here with you.

 

Ginny, don't be afraid, I'm here for you. Talk to me. Tell me all you need to tell me... tell it to me now, before it is too late...

 

Do you remember when we took that walk over around the lake?

 

We took many walks over the lake Gin....

 

Oh, I know! But the first one...

 

Yep... Hold on a second, Dumbledoreís telling me something... I have to pay attention...

 

Sorry. Where were we?... Oh right! Er... yes, Gin, I remember our first walk... You almost got dragged by the Giant Squid into the lake...

 

Oh yeah, it was dreadful! Wait... Harry, are you laughing?

 

Only inside. I canít laugh aloud around here... this people would think Iím crazy ... But why did you ask if I remembered it?

 

Well, I wasnít talking exactly about the Giant squidís incident. Do you remember what you told me? What I told you?

 

Yes, Gin, why?

 

And do you remember how we kissed, for the very first time?

 

Yes, I remember it very clearly... why?

 

 

Oh, I donít know. I was thinking.... Ron told me in my fourth year something that still lingers on my mind.

 

Really? Something about me?

 

Yes...

 

What?

 

He told me you would never love me the way I loved you. That I might as well just give it up...

 

Ginny, that was ages ago...

 

Yes, but....

 

Donít be silly. Ron already knows I love you the same way you love me...

 

So, you do? I mean, you do love me?

 

Of course...

 

Harry, do you think it was all a waste of time? I hope not. As I see you there, in the middle of this circle, carrying a horrible weight, that keeps you down, I wonder... do you still believe in our love?

 

Ginny, pay attention to what I have to say, please. Itís important. I'm looking at you. Your face mingles with the crowd, but I follow you with both of my eyes. I gave you the kiss my mother gave me. The kiss of inmense love. And I still think it was right. You were the one I should give it to. But, as I see you there, carrying a weight that keeps you down, the weight you carry on your very heart: the thought of you having to protect me. Don't let that consume you, Ginny. Live happy, with or without me.

 

Oh, Harry! How could I live without you? Your mere presence fills me with hope. Your eyes fill me with love. How could I ever live without you?

 

Please try,I'm begging you. Be patient. You'll learn to live without me. I promise. It just takes time.

 

Promise me you won't die. Promise me, Harry, that you'll stay with me. Promise me there will be more kisses. That you will return triumphant into my arms....

 

Oh, I can't. I wish I could, but I can't.

 

Why not? Why can't you just say you'll stay with me until we grow old...

 

Oh, how much would I wish for that! How much would I wish to grow old with you by my side.... how much I wish to live, just to grow old with you.... to take another stroll down the lake with you... to give you another kiss...

 

Harry, you're not dead. Don't say that kind of things. You're still alive... I can feel your breath nearby....

 

But, Ginny, we are miles apart!

 

I know, I know. It probably sounds silly... but I feel your warmth. Oh, Harry, don't die!

 

I'll try Ginny, I swear, I'll try. But I'm begging you Ginny, learn to live without me... I don't want you to die with me... I don't want to kill you because of my death!.

 

You wonít, dear, because you wonít die....

 

I just hope... I just truly hope you wonít forget me....

 

I wonít!

 

Will you remember me? Ginny, promise me you will rememb... Oh, wait, heís drawing closer....

 

What? Drawing closer? Oh Harry, be careful!

 

Hush, Ginny. Heís nearby....

 

Oh, Harry! I wish I was there with you! I wish I could fight for you....

 

Ginny, donít think about that!

 

Harry, maybe I could save you... if I was just a little closer....

 

No! Ginny! Donít think about that!

 

Harry, my love, maybe if I was there... you wouldnít be so afraid....

 

Ginny! Stop! You are not meant to be here. You are not doomed like me. Your fate is not dying! You donít share your fate with me....

 

Of course I do!

 

No, you donít! Now, hush, Ginny. Heís here.

 

Heís there? Oh, no, Harry, Iím trembling with fear....

 

Donít tremble, silly, youíre not in any danger....

 

Harry, you are trembling. I can feel it. Donít be afraid...

 

Donít worry about me!

 

What a difficult thing to ask for! Harry,my sweet happiness, I wonít forget you... never.

 

You promise?

 

I promise. Whatís happening?

 

We are fighting...

 

Is Ron o.k?

 

Heís fine. Heís holding Hermione in his arms...

 

Is Hermione...hurt?

 

No, they are just embracing each other.... The Crabbes are down.... theyíre lying on the floor.... Oh, Ginny, Lucius Malfoy is dead too... I see him... Draco is keeling beside him, crying... wait...

 

What?

 

Sorry, had to duck a curse... Sirius is alright too... heís just bleeding a little, a nose bleed apparently.... AAAAAAARRRRRRRGHHHHHH!!!

 

What the-? Harry? What happened?

 

Cruciatus...

 

Oh!... Harry!

 

Itís o.k, Gin, I... can..........handle.... the pain... but...

 

Donít worry. Tell me when the pain is gone. Until then, Iíll keep quiet...

 

No, speak to me... that way Iíll think less about the pain...

 

Are you sure?

 

Yes, go... on...

 

Oh, alright... let's see...Howís Dumbledore?

 

I donít know, I donít see him... Wait...Ronís running over to where I am... heís crying and screaming at the same time...

 

Whatís he saying?

 

Dumbledoreís dead.... he says Dumbledoreís dead... I can hear Voldemort laughing....

 

Dumbledoreís dead?

 

The pain is gone... I need to stand up.... I need to find my wand...

 

Harry... are you crying?

 

Wait, Ginny, I canít answer you now...

 

But I need to know... whatís happening?

 

 

 

Harry?

 

Ginny....

 

What?.... Harry, whatís going on?

 

Ginny.... heís dead....

 

Really? Heís dead? ...Whoís dead?

 

Voldemort...

 

Really! And... are you alright?

 

Ginny.... Iím hurt....

 

Oh, Harry! Is it painful?... is it bad?

 

Ginny.... I canít breathe .... breathe for me....

 

I am breathing for you, Harry, I am! Hang on... please!

 

Ginny.... I feel strange.... the world is closing slowly on me.....

 

Harry! Donít.... die....

 

Are you feeling it too? Like thereís no oxygen left for you to breathe?

 

Harry! Donít.... die....

 

Harry!

 

I love you Gin... donít... forget.... about... me. It was worth it.... I still believe... in our... love....

 

Me too! Harry, donít leave me!

 

 

Harry? Harry?

 

 

Harry? Oh, no, your silence is killing me!

 

Ginny.....

 

Yes?

 

Donít cry... youíre crying.... I can...feel.... it... donít....

 

Donít what?

 

Just... donít.... cry...

 

Harry!

 

I am.... bleeding....

 

Oh, no!

 

I canít... think....

 

Harry! Harry?

 

Iím sorry, Ginny... Iím so sorry....
