The power within
nothing belongs to little old me except a deluded fantasy that hogwarts and all
the wonderful things in the magical world are real no alas it all belongs to the
wonderful J . K . Rowling
Summary: I love all the
characters and will try to write them all in this but my focus will be on Ron
and Hermione but it will also include plenty Ginny and Harry. The story starts
in the summer following their fourth year where a lot of changes are due to
happen to the four friends and Ron realises a secret that could destroy or save
humanity depending on his decisions (oh and just wanted to warn I intend for
this to be a long one as it's my first but only if you all review).
Rating: I have made this an
R for caution however this is for language and sexual references that may not
appear until much later chapters if anything Rated is going to happen I will
give advanced warning.
so anyway on with the show
The summer was welcome by most young teenagers who expected
almost the same as every year with some excitement here and there, however for
many Hogwarts students summer had almost bought a feeling of dread as they
wearily said goodbye at the station.
However four students two red heads, a bushy
haired girl and a lanky boy with a lightening scar on his forehead willingly
excepted summer and the change that would come with it.
For they where changing
inside and out, little did they know that these changes would test them all in
ways they had never imagined.
Ginny weasley sat nervously tapping her fingernails on the
polished wooden table, she knew that her mother wanted to tell her off but she
was chewing her own fingernails in anticipation Ginny began to think about how
she had gotten herself into this situation
It had started before the summer Professor Dumbledore had
asked her to come to his office, at first Ginny had been scared out of her mind
what did he want? and was she in trouble? of course it was neither of these as
she soon came to realise.
Of course she never got into trouble not any more not since her
second year, now she tended to keep her head down and concentrate on her work.
Not that anybody noticed most people avoided her usually even her room mates, it
got lonely at times but she buried her self into studies promising that she
would enjoy life once she had completed school, which was something that came
easily to her it seems that she had the brains in the family.
School work always seemed easy this probably added to the reason
she had no friends it was so much easier to study than to talk to others.
only really spoke to people when she needed to and of course her three brothers
and thier friends would speak to her but she knew they thought she was a loser
following her brothers around.
Even Hermione who was also a bookworm managed to
be popular with a lot of people.
Of course Neville had taken her to the dance but only after he
had asked everyone else, they had rarely spoke the entire night.
Ginny had at
that point accepted her doom she really was a loser, a loser who had reached the office
and was now looking at professor Dumbledore as his eyes bore into her own they
held a twinkle in them, he had asked her to sit he then proceeded to tell ginney
why she was called to his office.
Some time later Ginny Weasley biggest loser ever had left that
office with a lighter heart with her head held high, people who passed her
saw almost as if for the first time a vibrant young women who suddenly had hope
that maybe she wasn't too bad after all.
Now she was here again almost a month since she had visited
Dumbledore with a sense of foreboding which was quickly erased as professor Dumbledore
stepped out of an office which contained many important people.
His smile and
laughing eyes caused Ginny to shout in delight and hug her laughing and
proud parents as Dumbledore congratulated her on passing her fourth year she was
now the youngest fifth year student.
Some time later her mum pulled out of the hug with her daughter
and silent tears fell down her face, " oh my little sweet Ginny we are so
proud of you. "
Mrs Weasley whispered at this Arthur chuckled " now
Molly Ginny is hardly little anymore now is she."
Ginny had to smile at this
it was true she now stood taller than her mother, plus the fact that this thing
called puberty was playing up again, of course puberty had hit years ago but it
wasn't as bad as this.
She had to buy a 32C bra and her clothes now hugged her in
all the right places
Her mums words interrupted her train of thought, "yes
she really has turned into a beautiful young women".
Ginny felt her cheeks burn at this statement true Ginny
didn't have spots a usual curse of puberty and she had thick red hair which
framed her face which she was glad was a dark red and not ginger.
Lucky for her,
Ron and Bill they had gotten the darker shade of red hair and a tan now covered
her body but she doubted that anyone would call her beautiful.
God she hated blushing it showed a sign of weakness and just
lately she had been able to keep her blushes under control, but with the three of
them staring at her with praising eyes there was no way she could control the
Dumbledore was excusing himself much to Ginny's relief at least
they had stopped looking at her, " I must go now I will look forward to
meeting you back at school for the next term, I expect you have many people to
tell of this exciting news?".
Ginny knew she was frowning Dumbledore's words hurt more
than she cared, the truth was not many people would be excited about the
news as she didn't have any friends.
She knew her brothers would be pleased all
except Ron, who would probably bitch and moan about her hanging around him.
wouldn't have to listen though because the first day back from Hogwart's and Ron
had gone over to spend the summer with Charlie tending to dragons.
Dumbledore had seemed to read her mind as he said in a
whisper so her parents couldn't hear, " it is surprising Ginny who our true
friends are supposed to be just because certain things have stopped these friendships
so far don't let it continue you belong with them they just don't realise it
Before Ginny could even begin to understand what he had said he was
She knew what he had meant and now would be a perfect opportunity
to be a part of there friendship, but she was scared they all shared a friendship
that made their bonds strong.
She doubted they wanted her to be a part of it,
however she would write and tell them all maybe she would be surprised,
"well you never know" she sighed.
Two days later Ginny was back at work, she had gotten a job at
the ministry of magic working with magical creatures it was fun and meant she
could be outside in the sun, plus she got to do magic.
It had only been two weeks since school had finished and she had
started working there, oh and of course passed her fourth year.
Part of her
started to feel a change in her attitude, she was walking with her head held high
instead of looking at her feet and was refusing to be pushed around by idiots.
She had actually told one lad who did no work to get off hiss lazy ass before
she swiftly kicked it.
It wasn't long after this incident that an owl landed on her
shoulder, she petted Hedwig and showed her to some water and treats she then
opened up a letter from Harry
Hi Ginny ,
hope your well it's brilliant that you are now a fifth year although I
would watch out for hermione if I was you she may feel slightly threatened
but I can't wait to see you to really congratulate you I have to say I feel
sorry for Ron now you and Hermione are going to be best friends he doesn't stand
a chance write back soon lots of love
Ginny felt slightly confused why would he think that she would
be best friends with Hermione she doubted that Hermione would want to be more
than just friends with her, Hedwig hooted at her and handed another letter
I cannot believe you are in the same year as me this will be the best thing ever
because now we can study together and I will have someone to talk to besides
Harry and Ron because sometimes I am unable to speak to them and I would like to
have a close girl-friend but you were always so busy (now I know why) but I know
you have your other friends but I really hope we can become great friends and I
was wondering if you would like to visit sometime? well congratulations again
send your letter back with Hedwig she will bring it here before going back to
Harry hope I hear from you soon
lots of love Hermione
Ginny was now staring open mouthed Hermione really wanted to be
her friend and she had invited her to stay a small twittering noise bought her
out of her stupor Errol, Ron's owl was fluttering about like a maniac.
He then remembered what he was supposed to do, Errol dropped the letter on Ginny's
lap upon seeing the letter Ginny gasped it looked like a howler "who would
send me one of these? " she murmured absently.
The boy she had shouted at
earlier was now sneering ,"better open it Weasley and give us a good
Ginny didn't notice but there were a few people around who were now
watching and waiting, Ginny opened it, the letter sprang to life and Ginny
heard Ron's shouting only it wasn't a bad shouting, it sounded more like cheering
"Ginny Weasley I am so bloody proud to have you for a sister who would
have thought that you are brainier than Hermione (long laugh follows) your gonna
have a brilliant time this year with us lot can't wait to see you Ginny bean
love you loads well done"
The voice now changed and her brother Charlie proceeded to tell
her how proud he is of her, then Ron and Charlie broke into song of congratulations,
when it ended the mouth that the letter had formed placed a kiss to her rosy
For a long time after Ginny was giggling, "oh well maybe
this year will be different, maybe people will really see me " she smiled
as she hurried to write to everyone.
They were offering hands of friendship and
although cautious Ginny was too lonely for too long she would gladly accept
