Harry's stay at the Burrow

By LABenson

Humor / Romance

Chapter 1

It had been quite a peaceful morning at the burrow all things considered … after Harry's arrival of course. Before he had stepped into the welcoming home closely followed by Mr Weasley who went to collect him earlier that day the burrow had been buzzing with excitement and not just for Harry's awaiting arrival. All the Weasleys were in the midst of preparing Bill and Fleurs wedding which was a week from now. Mrs Weasley had been berating them since they returned home for the start of summer; her temper was at an all-time high and Fred and George's antics weren't helping in the slightest, in fact once or twice Ginny wondered if her older brothers had their own death wish.


Ginny was in her room keeping clear of Harry who had unfortunately turned up just over an hour ago. It's not that she minded him being here, in fact with the way his aunt and uncle treated him she was more than happy for him to stay here for the summer, the only problem was that she always ended up making a fool of herself whenever he was around. Top that with Fred and George mimicking and teasing her and you get one very embarrassed teenage girl.

Ginny would be starting her fifth year at Hogwarts in September and she couldn't wait, it wasn't the school itself she was in a rush to get back to, (although that was a good enough reason for anyone) no, what she was looking forward to most was the Quidditch season. This year she would be trying out for the team. She had neglected in telling her family as she thought it would be a wise decision, she especially avoided telling Fred and George who were currently on the team and in their final year. She couldn't wait to see the look on their faces once she turned up with her new broomstick she'd been keeping under her bed all through summer. It was a second hand cleansweep seven, it wasn't in best condition but it would get the job done, job being to dodge bludgers coming to intercept, swerve in and out of the opposing chasers and hopefully score some goals.

She was just about to go under her bed to get her broom when there was a knock on her bedroom door, annoyed at having being disturbed she stood up and marched over to the door and opened it a little too forcefully.

"What do you want?" she snapped angrily then stopped dead in her tracks, standing a few feet in front of her and who had obviously been the one who had knocked on her door was none other than Harry. Harry for his part was looking at her sheepishly; clearly he hadn't expected her reaction.

"Hi Ginny, you're mum told me to tell you to come downstairs for dinner". He smiled nervously at her then headed across the hall and back downstairs. Ginny stood there for a few seconds feeling like an idiot, she'd just yelled at Harry-the boy she's had a crush on since forever. She sighed then followed Harry down into the kitchen, if she thought today couldn't get any worse clearly she was wrong.


All the Weasleys', Harry and Hermione were already sat at the table waiting for her. She sat down on the chair opposite Harry sneaking a glance at him hoping he was looking at her so she could mouth an apology but he wasn't looking at her, instead he was staring at the food on his plate.

"Alright everyone tuck in" Mrs Weasley said. And with a flick of her wand more food was added to the table for seconds. Mr Weasley was talking to Hermione about plugs and asking her about other Muggle technology. Ron, Fred and George were talking about Quidditch, Ron was trying out for the Quidditch team too except he was trying out for keeper, he was pretty good as well in her opinion, they always used to play little Quidditch tournaments in the backyard during summer and Ginny only managed to get a few goals in each time. Mrs Weasley was talking to Charlie about his job, complaining that it was dangerous to be training dragons. Charlie rolled his eyes while their mum wasn't looking then winked at Ginny, they'd had this conversation a thousand times already and she still wasn't letting it go. Ginny smiled at him then continued eating, she wasn't in the mood for joking around at the moment, she felt bad for yelling at Harry and she couldn't wait to get him alone to apologize. Yes that would be breaking her 'stay away from Harry' rule but she figured she could make an exception in this case, after that she would go back to following that rule. She looked over at Harry again to find him in deep conversation with Bill, she couldn't hear what they were talking about but she was happy to see that whatever it was Harry was laughing. She was too busy staring at Harry that she didn't see Fred and George look at her then back at each other and flash an evil grin. It happened within minutes, one minute she was lost in thought whilst eating her dinner, the next she was standing on the table making clucking noises and flapping her arms about like a chicken, the whole table erupted into cheers and laughter except for Mrs Weasley who had started chasing after the twins. Nobody dared to eat the food placed in front of them after that in case the two jokers had tampered with theirs as well.
