Re: Jamie and Scorpius
"I always knew I liked your father for a reason," he said, chuckling. "Seriously though, he's not bad. Your father used to scare me, back home, but now- He's different, not just his age. He keeps telling me to call him 'Harry'. Not sure I'm at that stage yet, but he's all right, although he probably thinks I'm an idiot now. Still if he wants to kill the birds, I won't complain."
Leave it to Lilu to think she could meet an unmovable object and move it. "That's pretty much the definition of a Gryffindor." He thought for a moment. "I can help too. I'd need a spell for a book to float and one to turn the pages. Maybe not today since I'm on enough pain potions to forget my name, but this might distract me from the pain, and it sounds like they need all the help we can get."
He did not agree with that theory, but the Weasleys were strange people. "Scarred Boy sounds worse; I'll have a think." Not that he was in a rush to do any of that, not when he didn't know what he would look like. "You're never useless, Jamie. Being there for someone, being here with me, talking, that's doing something. It might not be flashy enough for a brave Gryffindor, but it's important too. I know I appreciate it and so will Al."
