It was one of those perfect, wonderful moments that you would give anything, if only it didn't end.  Harry was snoring lightly, and I was lying on his chest, listening to his heartbeat and trying to ignore the sunlight creeping across the carpet, heralding the beginning of the day.

Thu-thump.  Thu-thump.  Thu-thump.

I knew his second scar was somewhere beneath my head.  The one that Voldemort had given him sixteen years after the first, when he walked into the Forbidden Forest of his own accord, and given his life so that everyone else could live.  Just as his mother had done.  

Thu-thump.  Thu-thump.  Thu-thump.

But his heartbeat.  That's what truly amazed me.  He had such a big heart, so full of love and laughter, but so stubborn.  It had refused to stop, not once, but twice, after all.  

And he's an Auror now.  Being an Auror isn't as dangerous as it once was, but it's not perfectly safe.  I still worry.  I still thank whatever higher power might exist that his heart is still beating, despite all it's been through.  And I pray that it will continue, in its unbroken rhythm, for many, many years to come.
I know this is short and a little bit corny, but :iconharry-potter-club: is doing a group-wide 100 theme challenge. And when I saw that prompt #19 was "heartbeat" I KNEW I wanted to explore the fact that Harry's heart SHOULD HAVE stopped twice during his life. And then I saw the deadline was tonight and i said "OH SH*T." So I threw this together. It could be better. But I still like it. Cause, I think most women will agree with me, for SOME REASON, listening to your man's heartbeat is really wonderful.

Anyway, read, enjoy, comment, fav. Toodles!!!

Harry's heart has always stood out among others.

Uh......you can? Cause I strongly disagree. The only person who fits with him is Ginny, just as Rowling intended. I didn't mention her name because it's from her point of view.

well, not with ANYONE but if you have a otp with harry in it then you wouldn't be all offended by this cause you can use your imagination and make the person (person talking) be the other to your otp

I suppose that's true, but no less so than any other pairing story written in a first person point of view.

yea but you didn't come out and SAY 'this is ginvra weasley.' so if someone had a otp with harry and someone else they could use their imagination and make it with anyone they want
