Chapter 09

Harry is such a good boyfriend – he not only gives nice gifts, he gets them repaired if they’re damaged. Later, Harry tries to “do the right thing” with regard to Ginny, but my solution is much different than JKR’s in HBP (and this was written MONTHS before HBP came out – it didn’t influence my story in the least, but I find it interesting how many things I “guessed right” that JKR included in her fic). The gang heads back to Hogwarts, and you’ll learn what was behind Hermione’s actions a couple of chapters ago.
