Ginny fled the wizarding world when betrayal, deception, and heartbreak tore apart her life. A year later, she lives and works as a Muggle-- and the co-owner of Athena's Saucy Shoppe of Salacious Delights. But she's about to learn that it isn't so easy to leave the past behind... especially when it comes packaged in the person of Draco Malfoy.
Chapter NINETEEN Quote of the Day:
Ginny tried again, deciding that it was time for her glowering blond companion to help her out whether he wanted to not.
“It’s so great to catch up with old friends, Draco. Don’t you think?” She jabbed Draco lightly in the ribs under cover of darkness.
He shot a sideways glance at her and made a noncommittal noise. Ginny groaned inwardly. He was apparently not going to help her at all.
Ginny turned her head to the other side. “Don’t you
think so, Theo?” she asked him, her voice strained.
“Couldn’t agree more,” said Theo. “And we’ve still got a lot of catching up to do tonight.”
He sounded relaxed and jovial. But something told a different story. Maybe the rigid carriage of his back, maybe an undertone in his voice or a falseness in his smile. Or perhaps her magical instincts were so deeply bred into her bones, so ingrained through a lifetime of training, that she could never lose them. Even though she’d been forbidden to use magic in over a year, Ginny was a witch and always would be. She thought that she’d probably tried harder to forget it than anyone else possibly could have done. And so she knew that something was very wrong.
