The thing is that I don’t remember that particular conversation taking place. Or even going to the Burrow for a family gathering. Or anything that had happened three weeks prior to the Crack heard around the world.
Her smile could be classified as ‘mega-watt’, whatever that meant. I assumed it was a flattering comment (not that I said it aloud) because Mum had used it to describe Dad’s smile. My frown deepened. On second thought, maybe it wasn’t.
There was something oddly fulfilling in watching Lorcan Scamander clutch at his throat. He looked sideways at his girlfriend but was pointedly ignored. I’d have to give Lily a pat on the back once we stopped laughing.
Someone kill me now. I mean, really? Really? Now, I wasn’t horrible with women, but it would figure that the only one currently expressing any interest in me was old enough to be my grandmother’s best friend. And with my luck, she probably was.
As much as I loved Teddy (platonically, of course. He is my sister’s boyfriend, after all. Brave man, selling his soul to the devil) he wasn’t always the sharpest tool in the shed. At least not when it came to picking up on sarcasm. But he didn’t have to be, what with his devastatingly good looks and arresting charms. I hated people with easy smiles and infectious laughs.
For as long as I could remember, all of Mum’s so-called ‘witty’ jokes were either stupid or lame or a combination of both. I supposed that was why I laughed at her attempts at humour anyway - because they were so horrible. But that - that was not horrible. That was ingenious and oddly logical.

In my defence, is anyone ever truly ready to go face-to-face with a room full of loonies and talk about their problems? Well, maybe Aunt Luna might and possibly Mum, but one believed in creatures like Snorkacks and Wrackspurts and the other fought for the freedom of a species who didn’t even want it.
