Restless. Ginny felt so restless she wanted to crawl right out of her skin. She was sitting on the edge of one of the traincar seats with Dean and he was playing with her hair. Ginny wanted to swat his hand away, she had had enough of Dean Thomas lately. It wasn’t that he wasn’t a decent bloke and a good snogger, but something was definatley off since before Christmas break when they had quarrled on the train on the way home. And then there was Harry, Harry who she had spent the last two weeks with and no matter how she tried to fit it, still loved him no matter how hard she tried not too. There had been an akward moment on the stairs when she was sure he was going to kiss her when everyone else had gone to bed, but Ron had interupted them.
Dean was prattling on to Seamus about Quidditch, neither of them had decent taste in teams or players. Dean made an off color remark about her favorite team, the Harpies, and nudged her in a way that irritated her. She hoped up at once as if she had been waiting for the nudge. “Right, I’m off for a bit, I need to talk to Hermione,” she invented lamely and pushed the sliding door aside so she could exit before Dean could protest or follow her.
The hallway was pretty empty. She made her way down the corridor, peeking in here and there to see if anyone she wanted to talk to but didn’t find anyone. Ginny eventually found herself at the back of the train where there were a couple of empty cars, she slid the door open to the last one, pulled the blinds and sat down, leaning her face against the glass.
