The past few days have been rather... eventful, to put it lightly.
Got an owl from Mum this morning, who tells me to "not be concerned with all this bad stuff that's going on. You have your N.E.W.T's to concentrate on, and besides, it'll be over soon. Let the Ministry handle it."
Don't concern myself with this? The hell I won't! People have died. Students have died. Many people are at risk. Like Su and Kevin, due to them being Muggleborn. Sure, even Steven and Mandy are in a bit of danger, as they're half-blood. Hell, even I'm at some risk, as Dad is Muggleborn.
And let the Ministry handle things? I'm sure my three-year-old cousin could do a better job than the people there. No offense to Mum, of course.
And she tells me not to concern myself with this? I don't think I've ever been more worried in my life, despite what I've told Su. N.E.W.T's can wait.
Speaking of Su, we just spent the evening in the kitchen, reminiscing about old times and eating. Merlin, that was fun. Two big things I learned: One, I never knew that Steven and Mandy had such an prankster side to them. Two, it was rather amusing to watch Kevin eat twenty huge dumplings (like the ones Su and I ate), ones Su brought back for him. He's like a bottomless pit, for Merlin's sake.
And I had quite the awkward moment when I, erm, ran into Steven and Mandy in the common room the other night. I knew they were serious and all, but I didn't think... not to that degree. And in the common room of all places? Well, it was dark and empty. but still... Will have a hard time forgetting that incident. Have had major trouble even looking at Steven since then. I promised not to mention to anyone about it. Why would I tell? It's not something that I think they want (well, Mandy at least) made common knowledge.
Anyway, I should be off to study for Charms. Have a test tomorrow.
