Birthdays... when you're a kid, you just can't wait for them. You reach a certain age, though, when you wish they'd go away for various reasons. Mostly, because it means you're getting old. Some families are too enthusiastic about birthdays, however, and you really can't get away from the fact you're a year older. Ever.
This is inspirations of Hufflepuff writing for the 'Life Begins at Forty' challenge. :) This placed second in 'Life Begins at 40'!

Summary: A story of a love unspoken and yet, real enough and true enough to be felt. It is Ginny Weasley's sixth year in Hogwarts and without Harry, she has been lonely. But there is someone, waiting in the wings, who's more than willing to keep waiting. This one-shot is set during DH, when the trio are off looking for Horcruxes. The title is a title of the song by The Weepies, so I credit them that, and of course, the characters and places mentioned are credited to the wonderful J.K. Rowling.

Siobhan Murphy will go to any lengths to ascertain her deepest desires - but when the object of those desires is a married man twice her age with secrets darker than she can imagine, she will find herself caught in a scandalous liaison that she can't walk away from. Not Canon-Compliant.
