Just In Case

Harry,

In case I don't survive.

I fear that if you are reading this I did not survive the Battle against Voldemort, so I am writing this letter to you. Firstly, to let you know that you are my hero you have been since I met you that fateful day on the train in first year. It's unbelievable really, all the great memories that me, you and Hermione have shared. Great times, and until my last breath, I will treasure every single of them. The good and bad, they've made me who I am.

I just want you to know that I used to be the person who was a bumbling idiot compared to his brothers. You helped me create a better me. A confident, fun, loving me, and I'm eternally grateful that you did. My life would have sucked without you and Hermione in it.

In our first who would've thought that first years could've defeated a fully grown mountain troll, discover the Mirror of Erised and save the Philosophers stone from Quirinus Quirrell. Two faces, it occurred to me later that Voldemort must have bitten his tongue, hard. Otherwise, he would never have shared his body with another. That must have killed the esteem.

Second year, we got to have more amazing memories. Ah, do you remember how embarrassed you were when that Goblin tracked you down on Valentine's day and gave you the singing Valentine from Ginny. Sorry mate couldn't help but laugh, embarrassing for you, hilarious for us. Then poor Ginny got taken into the Chamber of Secrets by the memory Tom Riddle that came out of the diary. You saved her life and Lockhart( what a pathetic excuse for a teacher) lost his memory. I realise Ginny never really apologised, so on behalf of the whole Weasley family. Thank you, we are truly indebted to you.

Then the third year who would've thought that Sirius was innocent and Scabber's(AKA Pettigrew) turned out to be a murderous traitor. Still can't believe I shared a bed with that tosser for three years at school. Well at least you got back a family member. Eh. I'm glad you did, after what you've been through, you deserve nothing less than to be happy.

Fourth year, I can't believe I thought you had entered the tournament yourself, you would never want eternal glory. Sorry again about that mate, I'll never forgive myself for my idiocy. The First Task you were absolutely brilliant I have never seen flying quite like it, not even from Krum. Second Task I was the hostage that you would miss the most, and I was honoured to realise how much I mean to you. You saved me and Fleur's little sister Gabrielle. You were awarded second place for moral fibre. Moral fibre my ass. Then you came back to Hogwarts after the Third Task clutching Cedric Diggory's body, sobs echoing around the pitch. You announced to the world that Lord Voldemort had returned; something we come to be grateful for. I don't think anyone's been as scared as they were then. Mum was distraught and we all thought you was never going to be the same again. And in truth you haven't been.

Then our fifth year was terrible thanks to that Umbridge bitch. She more or less tortured you in your detentions and depriving you of Quidditch. I mean, come on, what psycho deprives one of Quidditch. Of course no one believed you at this point, but then there was mass breakout from Azkaban and one of them was Bellatrix (Eugggh). I think our best memory of this year was Dumbledore's Army as we rebelled right under the Ministry's over large noses. Also meant I got to learn things from you that I thought I would never learn, like a Patronus Charm and the Impedimenta Jinx. Then of course, come Sirius's death in the Department of Mysteries. You seemed broken inside mate, like you would never be the same again. You haven't been, but you've learnt to live, I thank the heavens every day that you came back to us.

Sixth year you became a master at potions I remember fighting over who got the book during our first lesson with Slughorn. Probably the happiest moment I had all year. I dated Lavender, something which I deeply regret, it has always been Hermione, but I don't think she would ever date a guy like me- A pathetic Weasley. You of course, dated Ginny from just after Gryffindor won the Quidditch match that day. She's my sister, and of course I want to protect her, but I was so happy for you mate, you made her happy, and you became a whole new person whilst you were dating.

We never returned to Hogwarts for our seventh year as Dumbledore had left you to search for the remaining Horcruxes. Voldemort's only anchor to the earth, his one true protection. The Ministry has fallen, and it hasn't been an easy ride since then. Putting it simply, I never want to camp again. Well, we have destroyed the Diary, The Ring, The Locket just four more to go now. We can do this. Bloody hell we are so close but yet so bloody far. I can almost taste victory.

Do me a favour will you Harry, if you're reading this, tell Hermione that I love her and have done so every day since I met her. Also look after our family; they are just as much yours as they are mine. Especially Ginny I know she really loves you and I'm sure you love her.

I hope you never need to read this letter
Forever your friend,
Ron Weasley
