Walburga *about Sirius living with the Potters*:
Because he’ll be back, crying for his mommy! Just like that Christmas break when we moved and I forgot to give our new address to Hogwarts! Eleven years old and bawling in that Auror’s office like a little girl. What’s that tell you?
I can’t believe I have to go home today; there’s going to be no place to hide. My mother wanted this to be a “special” Christmas so she rented a cabin in the middle of nowhere. We’re going to be trapped like “The Shining.”
