Chapter Five-Ginny’s P.O.V

I squealed in pain as the healers kept telling me to push. I was so afraid and I just didn’t know what to expect. I felt so lonely without Harry by my side. He would have made it all better by just being their to hold my hand and comforting me.

“Don’t leave me, Mom!” I pleaded, tears streaming down my face.

“I won’t love,” she reassured me. “Your doing really well!”

“Almost there Ginny!” said a plumb healer named Irene. She had been so kind to me and very patient. She had a very round, olive face with large brown eyes that were very warm and friendly. “I can see the head! On big push now Ginny!”

I tried to push as hard as I could but I had been in labour for so long that I felt too tired and weak to carry on.

“Come on Ginny! It’s okay! You can do it!” egged on Hermione. I gave an almighty push as I listened to everyone’s encouragement. I groaned in pain as I squeezed Hermione’s hand so tightly that she gave a small yelp. I was so terrified that everyone would leave me to cope on my own.

“The head and shoulders are out,” confirmed a tall male healer who was rather stern and abrupt. “C’mon! Just one more push!” he said, getting impatient with me.

“Do you have any kid, twat features?” I yelled, grabbing his collar so my face was only inches away from his.

“No,” he gulped.

“Well fuck off!” I screamed, tossing him away as if he was an old rag doll. I noticed that Irene was smiling to herself which gave me the impression that the male healer wasn’t very well liked.

“One more push, darling.” said Irene “and then it’ll be over.” I obeyed her and my little baby entered the world after thirty six hours of pain and hard work.

“Well done, sweetheart!” said my mom, stroking my forehead which had become rather hot and my hair was sticking to my face.

“Congratulations, Miss Weasley,” Irene smiled, handing over a small bundle which she has just cleaned with one simple flick of her wand. “You have a very beautiful and healthy baby girl.”

I felt so happy. I’d done it! I’d achieved something amazing and worthwhile! Irene gave me my little girl and I cradled her lovingly as she gave out the cutest cry that i had ever heard. I noticed straight away that she has Harry’s shaped eyes (except they were blue but I suspected that they'd probably turn green) and his long, piano-playing fingers. She had my nose and a light covering of my red hair. She was the most beautiful thing that I had ever seen. I had fallen in love with her already. I cradled her small frame tenderly as I felt my whole life become brighter. Everything had slotted into place.

“I’ll go and owl Harry,” said Hermione. “The hospital owls are rather fast so we should get a reply in a matter of minutes.”

“Oh, would you?” I said. “Thanks so much Hermione.”

Hermione smiled and walked out of the door. I felt so lucky having such supportive friends and family. I felt sorry for other girls who had to go it alone.

“Ginny!” my dad grinned, bursting through the door with a large bouquet of yellow tulips in his hands. Irene took them off him and kindly offered to put them in water.

“Dad!” I held out my free arm (being premature, baby was so small that she only took up one arm!) and gave him a hug. “This is your granddaughter.”

My dad looked down and his eyes filled with tears. “She’s so beautiful,” he whispered. “Have you decided on a name yet?”

“No. I’m waiting for Harry’s reply. I’ve settled on Lily, but I need to know if he’d be comfortable naming our baby after his mom.”

“I’m sure that he will be, love” he said as I handed that baby over to him and mom. I waited patiently for Harry’s reply as I was taught by mom and Irene how to feed my baby and how to bring up wind. Irene told me that I was a natural and that I’d be a fantastic mother which made me feel rather proud.

“Gin!” Hermione panted as she arrived back. “Here’s the reply!”

“Harry? Is he okay?” I asked worriedly.

“I don’t know. I haven’t read it yet.”

I felt a but silly as I unfolded the parchment. What was I thinking? Of course Hermione wouldn’t invade my privacy. I straightened out the letter and read out loud:

Dear Ginny,

Is everything alright? How was the birth? Hermione said that you’ve had a girl. Who does she look like? I can’t believe that I’m a dad! I’m so proud of you! Have you decided on a name? I was thinking that we could call her Lily, but that’s only if you want to as well. Will you send me a picture of her?
I don’t feel right telling you this but I think that it’s best that you know from me rather than when you get a letter from the army/order. Ron died a battle a few days back. He was so brave, he saved us both from one of Snape’s curses and I tried to save him but I was too late. I’m so sorry Ginny. I tried so hard, really I did. I’ve failed you and your family, I know that much. I should have been quicker but Snape had put so many hexes and curses on me…..well, I suppose that’s no excuse. I should have tried harder, I’m so sorry. Tell everyone that I’m so sorry. Remus also died from one of Snape's curses a few months ago. Tonks is starting to cope but she's not the same person. I was too late to save him too. I know I'm a faliure, you don't have to tell me that and I know this isn't the best time to tell you but there's never going to be a best time. I just need to start telling the truth from now on. I promise not to keep anything from you again.

I love you so much. I miss everyone. Tell our little girl that daddy loves her and he’s sorry that he’s not there.

All my love,

a/n- YES, I’ve left you with another cliff hanger and YES I know that you all hate me and YES I know that I’ll get many horrible reviews now. I’m very sorry if I’ve ruined your day but will you please review? I’ve answered a lot of questions from the previous chapter so don’t be mad. So will you all still review….please? Pretty please? Pretty please with a cherry on the top?
