|Harry and Ginny are very much in love. But due to Harry’s upbringing without love and affection in the Dursley’s home, he’s not the best boyfriend he can be. Taking a hint from one of her Young Witch Romance novels, Ginny picks seven words to “act out” with Harry over seven days to better their relationship. Harry reluctantly agrees to this.|
The Challenge is to write a story involving:
1. Ginny picking seven words to demonstrate on or with Harry.
2. Suggestions are, but not limited to: love, adventure, fun, affection, risky, romance, humor, strip, caress, frolicking, travel, dress-up, etc.
3. Give a brief explanation as to why she picks the words she uses.
