On the balcony, Ginny looked out on the lake, country and forests surrounding the castle in the night. She let out a huff feeling tears sting her eyes.
“Why do I have to marry him?” She asked herself.
“You shouldn’t have to marry anyone you don’t want to Bella,” Ginny quickly swung around to find Blaise watching her while leaning against the door frame.
“Wait how long have you been standing there?!” She asked turning away to wipe her tears.
“Not long” he replied and walked to the rail on the edge of the balcony. “Long enough to hear you talking to yourself,” he leaned back against the rail and smirked at Ginny.
“You probably think I’m mad, out here talking to myself,” she walked to the rail and stood resting her hands on it looking out over the valley.
“No, it means your special” he turned to face the valley and looked out over it as well.
“Thank you?” she replied unsure if that was a compliment or not.
“You were the girl who had my raven?” He said to her and she nodded.
“Shadow wasn’t it?” She replied and Blaise chuckled.
“How many ravens fly in through your window and become attached to you right away?” He asked and they both laughed.
“Sorry, where are my manners, we haven’t been introduced,” Blaise said and extended his hand to her.
“Blaise, Antonio, Marcel, Zabini” Ginny was amazed at the length of his name and shook his hand.
“Ginevra, Mollie, Weasley, but everyone calls me Ginny” she replied shaking his hand.
“Well, I think I’ll call you Bella for now” they both laughed and sighed.
“I believe you are aquatinted with Pansy yes?” Blaise asked and Ginny nodded.
“Yes, she’s my friend as is her younger sister Scarlett” Blaise nodded.
“Tell me how did she become friends with you and your friends?” Blaise asked and Ginny looked at him.
“Why do you want to know?” She asked and he shrugged.
“I’m just curious, when I met Pansy it was the morning of her wedding to Marcus, but I didn’t get a chance to speak to her properly and then...” He began.
“It, got called off” Ginny finished Blaise’s sentence and Blaise nodded in agreement.
“Yes I’ve no idea why their marriage was called off but I do know that she was a wreak, poor thing” Ginny nodded at his words.
“Your right she was, that’s how she became friends with us, Hermione recently discovered that her mother was adopted and her mother had a long lost brother named Richard,” Ginny told him.
“Pansy’s papa!” Blaise was shocked at what Ginny told him.
“Yes and Pansy invited Hermione to her wedding and she invited me, Luna and Cho as well” Ginny replied.
“And you and your friends took her in when her wedding was called off” Blaise finished and Ginny nodded with a smile. “Wow, but wasn’t Pansy friends with Daphne and Astoria?” Blaise asked. Ginny’s smile was replaced with gritting teeth and she turned away.
“Yeah, you were right about Pansy and the Greengrass twins being friends but... something, bad happened between them...” Blaise frowned.
“Really what happened?” Ginny turned back to him and froze a second.
Never noticed his eyes were beautiful blue... Focus Ginny! He’s a Slytherin and with one of the Greengrass whores, Ginny thought.
“Well, it’s to do with...” Ginny began. “Blaisey! What are you doing out here?!” A high pitched voice squeaked.
