Harry sat on the edge of his bed and sighed. Maybe he should tell Ginny that he liked her...it was better than going crazy. Sighing, he knew that he'd never be able to gather the courage to walk up to her and tell her, especially if she was surrounded by other people. Besides, if Ron saw him talking to Ginny, he'd probably interrupt them. There had to be some other way.
Of course, he suddenly realized, he could send her a note! And, now that he thought of it, he didn't have to sign it! He could send her the note to make himself feel better without feeling like an idiot! But...what if she figured out it was from him and then told everyone? He'd never leave his dorm again. Grabbing a spare piece of parchment, he began to scribble.
**REASONS WHY I SHOULD OR SHOULDN'T SEND GINNY THE NOTE**
1.) It would make me feel better
2.) She might know it's from me and then I'll look stupid
3.) Ron might find out and kill me
4.) She might actually like me
5.) It would prevent me from writing more dumb lists like this
That settled it. He began to write.
*I've liked you for a while, but haven't gotten up the courage to tell you. I think you're amazing.*
That should be enough, he thought. It was short, sweet, and to the point. He wouldn't leave his name...maybe if she liked him, she'd figure it out on her own.
He left his dorm and went down into the common room. He had originally hoped that Ginny's backpack would be sitting somewhere unattended, but instead, Harry spotted her books sitting on a table. This would work just as well, he decided. After making sure no one was watching, Harry slipped the note between the pages of her herbology book and left the area quickly afterwards. The deed had been done.
I've liked you for a while...who could've written this? Neville had only left his books alone for a few minutes, so whoever had put the note in his herbology book might still be in the room. He looked up...a few first years were playing chess in the corner...Harry was walking around aimlessly...and Lavender was gazing out the window.
Earlier in charms, she had let him borrow a quill! And before that, she had held a door open for him! Obviously she had left the note! He should've known that she liked him. It was obvious, now that he thought of it. They would make the perfect couple.
I can't believe it, Lavender has a crush on me! She just sent me a love note: "I've liked you for a while, but haven't gotten up the courage to tell you. I think you're amazing." SHE THINKS I'M AMAZING! Why didn't I figure it out before?
I should probably send her a note, to let her know that I like her too! I mean, I didn't even realize that I liked her until today! I've got it - I'll slip a note in HER herbology book! But I can't let everyone see me...I'll write out a plan...
1.) Write note
2.) Get Lavender's herbology book
3.) Put note in book
There! That should work! I'll do it later today, so I won't keep her waiting! I CAN'T BELIEVE SHE THINKS I'M AMAZING!
Ron is so annoying. He's driving me crazy. One day, I swear he's desperately in love with me and the next, he's all over someone else. And he's annoying, to top it all off. "Hermione can I see your charms homework?" "Hermione what's the answer to number three?" "Hermione can I borrow a quill, I just threw mine out the window?"
WHY CAN'T HE JUST DO THINGS ON HIS OWN?!
I need to get my mind off of him.
*THINGS THAT ANNOY ME*
1.) Ron (wait...I'm not supposed to be thinking of him)
2.) Being hungry
3.) When I put down my quill and then, five seconds later, I can't find it
4.) When I completely forget about some homework assignment and then remember at the absolute last minute and have to rush to get it done
5.) When I forget what I was going to say
6.) When I forget what I was going to say and then remember five minutes later, but the conversation has already moved on so I can't say it
7.) When I can't fall asleep even though I'm tired
8.) All right, I have to say it, RON! HE'S SO ANNOYING!
