His Words

It had been many years after he had let her go. He hadn't wanted to leave her, she could see that in his eyes, but that hadn't stopped him from going. He sent her letters trying to soften the blow. Telling tales of his return after the war. He never came.

She had stopped into a coffee shop for a quick sip one day after leaving her studios. She had become a singer once she left Hogwarts, writing songs about him leaving her and her life sky rocketed from there. She had noticed a flyer on the door saying "Small town singers wanted." She recognized it from the symbol on the bottom left hand corner of it. Her own studio was setting up this whole thing to recruit more talent.

When she finally saw him again, it wasn't at her doorstep or at a train station like she had imagined it. He was setting up the stage inside the small shop. Her heart fluttered for a moment as she watched him lift a piece of the background set up and put it in place. 'He works here' she thought to herself. Just as she let the door swing shut a jingle noise came from the bell above her head and made her entrance known. Only two people turned to look at her, the man on stage and her boss. She couldn't quite tell which person was happier to see her at the moment because Draco was beckoned back stage.

She spoke with her manager and sat down as the first person came on stage to sing. She smiled to herself as she told him to wait a moment so she could hear the first act. He obliged and turned to watch as well. It was why he was there. The first of the lights turned and on and Ginny cold see the blonde hair shine brilliantly as Draco strummed the first few notes of his song. Then all the lights lit up the stage and he began to sing:

All my arguments sound pretty weak

The first of his words ran through the room and he grabbed the attention of all the people in it at once, but he was only singing to one person. Her.

So I'll be quick and concede defeat
all the evidence lies on your side
so I'll come clean and say that I lied

(Ginny's thoughts)

Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly... with his song

Telling my whole life with his words

Killing me softly... with his song

The words came to her mind as she watched him sing to her. She quickly pulled out a notepad and wrote them down. Inspiration was coming to her and like all of her songs it was about him. He continued.

I guess it's OK if I'm hated and damned
But don't go away thinking I had it planned
It wasn't part of my scheme to be hateful to you

Did I hurt you? What can I say?
I am guilt, of walking away
and the signals that I sent you
I never meant to.

Did I hurt you?
Forgive me please! I am guilty
I let you believe. That I loved you

He then stopped playing and the last of his words was a capella.

But I truly love you

She couldn't help but think the last words weren't apart of the song as she watched him leave the stage.

"He sang pretty well, don't you think Ginny?" her boss asked her. "He has style," she nodded and he walked back on stage again to sing his second song when she noticed something flicker in his eyes. Something that reminded her that deep down he was still that young teenage boy and that she too, still loved him.

She looked down at her note pad at the unfinished song and let her sudden attack of idea's write the rest of it.

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style

And so I came to see him, and listen for a while

And there he was, this young boy, a stranger to my eyes

Her bossed turned to her and noticed she was writing. He smirked at her and took her hand. She hadn't noticed that a few of the people in the coffee shop recognized her until he was pulling her towards the VIP room upstairs. She continued to write once up there.

Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly... with his song

Telling my whole life with his words

Killing me softly... with his song

The crowd had noticed her only because of his second song. It was a letter she wrote to him about him leaving and she hadn't realized it till he said 'love Ginny' and then repeated it as if it were the chorus of the song. She wrote even more down on her pad.

I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd

I felt he found my letters, and read each one aloud

I prayed that he would finish, but he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly... with his song

Telling my whole life with his words

Killing me softly... with his song

She finished writing on her pad as she went down the steps of the VIP room and headed for the back stage area. She placed the note pad in her bag and went to find him. She opened the door to the back alley and found him standing out there sulking under the light of the moon. She smiled to herself as she wrapped her arms around him and didn't let go. It was all he needed to know she had forgiven him.

Strumming my pain with his fingers

(Yes he was) Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly... with his song

Telling my whole life with his words

Killing me softly... with his song

Strumming my pain.
