Author's Note: Written for the "heat" challenge at hpgw100. [personal profile] flyingcarpet, you said I should write them more often. Your wish is my command.

It was supposed to be chilly in September, but Harry was hotter than he had ever been. Their latest, unsuccessful, attempt to steal food had left him sweaty, exhausted, and hungry. The locket burned against his skin, whispering. It was a relief to lapse into unconsciousness that night.

The next thing he knew, he was standing in an open field. A cool breeze caressed his face. Ginny stood beside him, grinning and clutching two glasses of ice water. "Drink up."

Harry took one. "I'm dreaming, aren't I?"

"Do you care?"


She always knew what he needed, even in dreams.
