A few days had passed since the disaster. Ginny and her mother were preparing 晚餐 while everyone was at work. She was doing everything she can to avoid Harry in her thoughts 由 doing chores. As 晚餐 was set on the table, Mr Weasley arrived home, looking distraught.
Ginny: Is everything ok at work dad? she noticed The Daily Prophet in his hands
Mr. Weasley: Well, I think this should explain it...
He gave the Daily Prophet to his daughter. Suddenly, Ginny gave a huge outcry. Right in front of the paper was a picture of Harry with big huge words:
WANTED FOR THE QUESTIONING OF ALBUS DUMBLEDORE'S DEATH
Ginny: How could they?!! Mum! look at this! Molly takes a look, she was 更多 angrier than Ginny
Miss Weasley: I can't believe it! they have gone absolutley too far this time! They're all mad! doing this to a 17-year-old boy!
Mr. Weasley: That's not the only thing though. The Ministry has also decided to call muggle-borns into questioning. They believe that all of the muggle-borns "stole" magic and will do anything to punish them! out of their minds they are! and to make things worse, that horrible Dolores Umbridge is now in charge of all that!
Ginny was even 更多 angry. Umbridge was The Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts during her 4th year. Harry, Ron and Hermione started a group called Dumbledore's Army because Umbridge refused to teach them how to actually defend themselves. As they sat down on the table, Arthur began to speak again.
Mr Weasley: But I also wanted to tell 你 this Ginny. I;m afraid that 你 have no choice but to go back to Hogwarts this year. You-know-Who made it clear that Hogwarts is mandatory for every witch and wizard, and that they will be checking all of the student's blood status as well.
Ginny and Molly are in shock, there was silence at the table. After the longest time, Ginny finally spoke
Ginny: No... I won't go back!
Miss Weasley: Ginny, 你 have too!
Ginny: I don't care, I can't 熊 it! they can go ahead and find me if they want to!
Mr Weasley: Don't talk like that young lady! 你 are going and that's that. Besides, I'm sure most of the professors will do everything they can to help all of you. I know Professor McGonagall will do her best, she's in the Order of the Pheonix after all.
Miss Weasley [quietly]: At least Ron and the other won't have to worry about all of this, especially Hermione considering she's muggle-born. Poor girl, having to erase her parents memories and send them to a different country. God only knows what would've happened to her... just thinking...
Ginny: Let's not talk about anymore then, shall we?
Arthur: Yes, well on the good news, I ran into Remus today and he told me that 唐克斯 is pregnant!
Molly [suddenly cheerful]: Really? oh how wonderful! I'm so happy for them! But I never really thought of 唐克斯 as the mother type though.
Arthur: Yes well, he didn't really seem too happy about it though. He was on his way to Grimmwald Place to tell Ron, Harry and Hermione about what's been going on.
They finished dinner. Ginny went upstairs to get ready for 床, 床上 when suddenly, an idea came to her head. If You-Know-Who was going to take over Hogwarts as well, she wanted to do something about it. She didn't want to just wait and have Harry stop him himself, she wanted to take action, and somehow, get everyone involved. If only the D.A. was still there...
The 下一个 morning, after Mr Weasley left for work, Ginny and Molly traveled to Diagon Alley to get her usual school supplies. Diagon Alley wasn't as cheerful and colorful as it once was. It was now full of gangs of bad wizards [which made Ginny stay very close to her mother] and most of the shops were borded up. The only places available were the 长袍 and book shops, and 费雷德 and George's joke 商店 which, suprisingly, was still successful with many customers inside. Even Gringotts, the wizard bank was still running. After getting all of her supplies, Ginny and Molly agreed to stop 由 费雷德 and George's 商店 to say hello. As they walked in, she spotted her friend and fellow Ravenclaw Luna Lovegood and her father Xenophillius looking at the Dungbombs. She went up to them while Molly went to find the twins
Luna: Oh Hi Ginny! how's everything been since, well, that night?
Ginny: Well, after 你 guys left, we were questioned but that was about it. My dad and brothers are still going to work though. Did 你 hear about what's going to happen at Hogwarts this year?
Luna: Oh yes, it's so unfair, especially for the muggle-borns. I wish there was something we could do to help. Did 你 see Harry's wanted pictures as well? My Dad is doing all he can to get people to support him on The Quibbler.
Ginny paused. Everytime she heard about Harry being wanted she was always on the verge of tears, but did her best to control herself.
Ginny: Yeah. Well, I've been thinking last night and [looks around and makes sure no one was listening] I think we should take a stand. Maybe... get Dumbledore's Army back 或者 something.
Luna: That's a great idea! but how are going to do that with You-Know-Who watching us?
Ginny: Oh... well I didn't think about that actually.
Luna: Don't worry, we wiil find a plan. We should find Neville and start planning. Oh look! here he is!
Neville Longbottom, who was in the same 年 as Ron, approched them along with his elderly Grandmother.
Neville: 嘿 guys. Did 你 hear about what's going to happen at school this year? It's completley mad!
Neville's Grandmother: Those rotten idiots! I hope that bloke you-know-who is defeated soon! Well Neville, 你 can stay with your little 老友记 here while I look around this place, seems to take all troubles away...
As she walks away, Ginny told Neville of her plan. When she was finnished, Neville was excited
Neville: We should! I think it's about time that WE do something with Harry, Ron and Hermione gone! I think they would like us to help Hogwarts.
费雷德 and George appeared. They caught everything they were talking about.
Fred: Planning to rebel, little sis?
Ginny: This is none of your buisness!
George: Really? cause we were going to say we support 你 100%, and decide to not turn 你 in to Mum and Dad, but I guess not...
Ginny: Wait! I'm sorry! 你 can 加入 us if 你 want
Fred: How? when we don't go there anymore?
George [ignoring his twin]: Well, we were going to tell 你 all that our friend Lee Jordon is planning to start a radio 显示 called "Potterwatch" in which he and us will be informing those who are rebelling against You-Know-Who about things that The Ministry leaves out on the The Daily Prophet, and also those who support Harry as well. Kingsley Shackelbot is also involved.
Luna: That's a great idea! When will it air?
George: Well, that's the thing. Since The Ministry and You-Know-Who are watching us like hawks, he's planning to set a 密码 for people to use in order to listen, and to be in a different location everytime he airs.
Neville: I always thought Lee was annoying, but this is brilliant!
Fred: Well then Ginny, if 你 and these two plan on rebeling, all I can say is good luck.
Ginny: Thanks guys. 你 seriously won't tell mum and dad?
George: Promise. as long as 你 don't get kicked out of school 或者 something.
Ginny: Well, Mum seems to be waiting for me, so good luck with Potterwatch. I will try to hear it soon, and I will see 你 two in a few weeks.
As August wore on, Ginny comtinued to help her mother around the house. All she could think about was her plan to recruit the D.A. and help fight You-Know-Who. For the first time in her life, she felt a lot 更多 stronger than she usually was. On the night before school began, while packing her supplies and robes, she heard her father come home, shouting and her mother gasping. Ginny ran downstairs to see what was going on.
Ginny: What happened? who died? who was attacked?!
Her parents took one look at each other, and then finally told their daughter the news...
Arthur: Severus Snape...is going to be your new Headmeaster.
