Following that ordeal Ginny grew into a confident young woman, becoming an important member of Dumbledore's Army, an organisation taught and led by Harry Potter in her fourth year.
When the Hogwarts Express returned to King's Cross in June 1992, Ginny was with her mother to welcome her brothers back and was again excited to see Harry, pointing him out to her mother as he came through the barrier between platforms nine and ten.
After seeing Harry Potter at King's Cross, Ginny developed feelings for him and talked about Harry all summer.
Startled, she retreated back to her room and stared at Harry as he passed her bedroom on his way to Ron's.
Ginny became extremely clumsy around Harry and had a habit of knocking things over when he entered a room.
As the train pulled out, she began to cry, despite her brothers promising to send her loads of owls and a Hogwarts toilet seat.
