After saying goodbye to Neville, Sean walked out of the platform with Hermione. He was a little absent-minded because he was curious about Daisy, whom Harry mentioned.
“Dad, Mom!” Hermione shouted happily and then quickly ran to her parents.
It was a well-dressed and gentle-looking couple. Sean stepped forward to greet the two of them politely and then looked for his family.
As soon as he saw his parents smiling at him, someone bumped into his thigh.
“Sean, I miss you so much!” The little girl shouted in a small voice.
“Me too.” Sean hugged his sister, Ella.
The Wallup also came over with a smile on their faces. The two got to know each other. The owner of the private hospital and the owner of the private dental clinic happily exchanged their business cards.
“I’m considering whether to invite Dr. Granger to the hospital with a high salary. Right in time to hire a new dentist.” When he got into the car, Mr. Wallup was already thinking about hiring someone.
Obviously, a wizard’s parents are very worthwhile to befriend.
Sean smiled, “It depends on whether your offer is good for them, Dad.”
Mr. Wallup started the car and said proudly, “It’s always like that.”
Ella kept sticking to Sean in the back seat, her legs leaning on the seat.
“Sean, did you bring something for me back there?”
“Well…” Sean smiled shyly.
When he got home, Sean relaxed his mind. After Dumbledore and Grindelwald both promised to protect their family, Sean had no worries.
At Christmas, he received a lot of gifts again. Even Dumbledore sent him a large batch of Bertie Bott’s multi-flavored beans. He specially stated on the holiday congratulation card that he strictly picked this package of beans, so there won’t be any strange taste in it.
Under Dumbledore’s package, he received a carefully packaged gift box. Sean took it apart and found that it was an extremely exquisite cloak with magic on it, which could keep the wearer at a comfortable temperature.
It was a luxurious and thoughtful gift. Sean raised his eyebrows and opened the greeting card with a line of beautiful words on it.
“Sorry, Merry Christmas.”
No signature, but Sean knows who it is. It would probably be Stephanie, as she doesn’t have the guts to say it in person.
On the other side, Mr. Wallup picked up a bean and threw it into his mouth.
“Bleh! Wizards eat booger?!”
Holidays are always short-lived. Before Sean could enjoy it, it was time to go back to school. At King’s Cross Station, he said goodbye to his family, and even Dave in Sean’s pocket conveyed his reluctance.
With Sean’s advance notice, Mr. Wallup prepared all kinds of raw and cooked brains. Dave basically stayed in his attic for the entire Christmas holiday.
For the first time, Sean received a happy response from Dave, “I am full. I can’t eat anymore…”
On the other side, Hermione was already waving at him, and the two had made an appointment to go back to school together.
After saying goodbye, Sean and Hermione each carried a suitcase much heavier than when they came back into the platform. When they got to the door of the room, Sean saw Harry and Neville.
Harry seemed a bit different, with a heavy look of concern on his face. At the same time, Neville was comforting him in a low voice.
“Hey, are you okay, Harry?” Sean greeted him.
“Oh, Sean. Good morning.” Harry forced a smile.
The four of them found a room and sat down while Harry was in low energy.
“What happened? Of course, no need to tell us about it if it’s inconvenient.” Sean asked with concern.
Harry struggled for a while and glanced at Neville, who immediately went to lock the door.
“Something happened to my family.” Harry said slowly in a deep voice.
“What’s the matter? Are you alright?” Hermione also became worried.
Harry sighed, looked at the two of them, and said seriously, “Sean, Hermione. Because I think you are all very trustworthy people, please don’t tell the others, okay?”
“Of course.” Sean and Hermione nodded solemnly.
“I have a sister who is a year younger than me, Daisy,” Harry said with deep pity in his eyes, “She has a strange disease, and even Professor Dumbledore said that he only knew it from an ancient document he found.”
“A strange disease?” Sean frowned.
“Yes,” Harry nodded, “Because of this disease, Daisy can only stay in the house most of the time. If the disease is not treated quickly, she… she will lose her life.”
“God…” Hermione covered her mouth
“I’m sorry to hear that.” Sean’s voice was also low.
Harry smiled reluctantly, “Fortunately, her condition is barely under control.”
Sean is not a doctor; even Dumbledore can’t do anything about the strange disease. Naturally, he couldn’t think of a good solution, so he finally comforted Harry. Harry’s mood had recovered when he was about to arrive at the station, and he had become optimistic again.
As if seeing Sean’s doubts, Harry showed a smile, “I don’t know if Daisy can enter the school, I promised her that I would always be happy at school with her. I’ll try to tell her every good thing about it here.”
Sean patted him on the shoulder and said sincerely, “You are a good brother.”
“Of course, my goal is to be the pride of my family.” Harry straightened his collar.
“You are now their Potion Master. Knowing that you’ve won Professor Slughorn’s prize.” Sean joked.
Harry touched his cheek embarrassedly, “Come on now.”
While joking, Sean suddenly thought that after Snape replaced Professor Slughorn. Wouldn’t their encounter later be awkward?
Sean saw a familiar and unfamiliar figure on the teacher’s desk when they sat down in the hall. Long greasy hair, a hazy expression, and a high hooked nose.
Sean’s smile instantly froze on his face. Coincidentally, he met his eyes, and Snape narrowed his eyes slightly to him.
