Harry Potter pulls into the driveway of his house - yes, he has finally learned how to drive after five consecutive failed driving tests - and he gets out of his car after. He realizes that no one's home, making him heave a great sigh. Ginny has always been like this. You know, cold to him. Harry has never caught her dating other guys, but he can feel he's been fooling him all along.
He heads to his bed room upstairs, takes off his clothes, and lies down. His room is filled with his stuff - wand, papers, ink, quill, and the like - but there's something new in his bed room. A wooden box sits on the table across from his bed. He picks it up, wipes the dust away, and opens it.
"What is this?" he says to himself, wondering.
Inside is a letter, which, from the looks of it, has been sitting there not just for a year. Not even for two! He unfolds it and reads whom the letter is from.
"A letter from Hermione?" he asks himself.
Harry has never seen Hermione since the day he confessed his feelings for her.
It was a rainy day. He never thought that this would happen. Harry respected Hermione's relationship with his best friend, Ron, but he couldn't take it anymore. He decided to tell Hermione how he felt for her. They went to Hagrid's house, just the two of them.
"Harry," she said, an eyebrow raised, "What is this all about?"
He looked her in the eye. He loved her so much, but he kept reminding himself that Ron was a friend.
"Hermione, I love you," he said, looking her in the eye. "I have always loved you, but I respect your relationship with Ron. But this is how I feel. I want you to know before it's too late - before we get stuck with the wrong people."
They were about to kiss, but someone emerged out of nowhere. It was Hagrid. From the looks of it, he had been surprised. He looked at Harry furiously.
"How could you do this to Ron, Harry?" Hagrid exclaimed.
Harry explained everything to him, but Hagrid wouldn't listen. He was still mad at what they had done. But in the end, he forgave the two of them.
And that's how it ended. Hermione stopped seeing Harry. Never would the two of them talk when Ron and she got to Harry and Ginny's house. But now, there's a letter from Hermione. A letter from the person he hasn't talked to for years.
I wrote this the day we stopped seeing each other, and I wanted you to read it at the perfect moment. And I think this is the perfect timing to tell you everything.
Harry, I loved you, but Ron and I were together that time. That was the reason why I chose to stay with him. I tried to love him, but you were the one whom I couldn't stop thinking about. When you and Ginny started going out, I felt bad. I felt bad for myself because I thought it would be me who would be your girlfriend. Hey, I was your bestfriend so I thought I had a bigger chance. But I was wrong. I was always wrong. So when Ron asked me out, I said yes.
Harry, I heard what had been going on with you and Ginny since the day you confessed your feelings for me. And that's why I wrote this letter.
I want the two of you to live a happy life. I don't want to ruin everything about the two of you. Ginny and I are friends and I don't want our friendship to be ruined by a guy. So, Harry, I want you to move on. Like me. It was hard to move on for me, but I managed. Ron and I have been happy since the day I chose to move on, and I want it to happen to you, too. I want you to realize that it's Ginny whom you really love - not me.
Harry, that's all I want to say. Don't do it because I told you. Do it for you kids and for Ginny. Maybe you're wondering why Ginny has been cold to you. This is the reason why. She knows everything.
Good-bye, Harry. Till we meet again.
There are tears gushing down Harry's face. Finally, he has realized how much he loves Ginny.
Then someone knocks on the door.
Harry runs and hugs her tightly.
"Wow," Ginny says, utterly surprised.
