"It's impressive how you can give such a black and white answer when it comes to trying and so many qualifiers when you talk about not trying," Scorpius said. "It's also very telling of the type of ethics that were instilled in you. I wonder where you get it from," he teased, because it wasn't just Harry Potter, but also every Weasley he had met. They joked about how anal their Uncle Percy was, but they were all anal, just in different way.
"It's easy to want someone to be in charge, but it's even easier to resent him," he said with a sigh. "For what it's worth, I'm sorry about what happened."
Scorpius nodded. "It never occurred to you to have one night stands with women while you figured things out right?" Probably not, because it might have gone again some code of ethics that Scorpius didn't understand. "I wish I could give you your job back, but maybe if you want to play with magic, you should talk to Padma. It's not like we have an actual Minister now so you might as well do something you like."
