"Maybe that's what it means, but that's not what it sounds like," Scorpius said with a shrug. "You know it's also okay once in a while to say this is too hard for me or I'm not suited for this and I'll let someone else do it. Truth is, darling, that everything in life has exceptions and those sayings leave little room for deviation."
Scorpius smiled. "You're right, but they would have found someone else to pin their hopes up. It just happened to be Harry Potter, because he makes it really easy. Maybe it would have been Snape or Dumbledore or someone else that isn't here. People always look for that one person though, even when they shouldn't."
He didn't like one bit the way Jamie was sounding. He was worse than Albus and he didn't think that was even possible. "Do you do anything for fun? Ever? And I don't mean now but at home, because you're way too tense. I hope that at least you got laid on a regular basis, because I don't know how you didn't explode otherwise."
