Rose woke up the Далее morning, feeling terrible. She was thankful that it was a Saturday. That way, she could spend the whole entire день in her dormitory and she would never have to face James или Albus. At that thought, she felt guilty. Why was having mainly male cousins so hard? All of the sudden, she heard voices. Not pretend voices, voices of people she actually knew. ''I still think James acted like a prat.'' ''Vicki, everyone thinks James is a prat. It's not new.'' ''I just can't believe how Albus just exploded after Rose left yesterday. Like he was pissed off at James, and over Rose. Albus never gets upset over Rose...'' When Victoire, Lucy, and Roxanne saw Rose sound asleep (or at least they thought she was asleep) in her bed, instead of ignoring her and walking on, they stopped to check on her. ''Wow. She slept with her shoes on. I would never be able to do that...'' ''Well then don't just stand there, take them off!'' Rose could feel Roxanne bring her legs up above her covers and take her sneakers off. ''There. Now she's comfortable, Lucy. Happy?'' ''Don't get smart with me, Roxy...just because I'm not really like my father dosen't mean I-'' ''Will Ты two shut up! Ты might wake her!'' Rose, and pretty much every other person that knew her knew that Victoire was a gentle, giving person. But, she could be a hassle if she wanted to be. Rose decided that her cousins deserved to know the truth. She opened her eyes and sat up. ''Hey,'' Rose сказал(-а) groggily. ''Oh, great, Ты woke her up! We're sorry Rosie...'' ''It's okay, Vicki, but what were Ты guys all talking about?'' Victoire, Roxanne and Lucy all shared a look, then turned back to Rose. ''Well,'' Lucy started, ''After Ты left yesterday, Albus and James got into a really really big fight. They aren't speaking.'' Rose could feel all three pairs of eyes on her. ''Well, Albus was furious at James for making Ты feel like dung. And then James told him that he was just a girl for protecting you. And then...'' Lucy trailed off. ''What?'' Rose asked expectantly. ''They got into a fist-fight.'' Rose looked horrified. ''Well, Фред and Louis did pull them apart after a couple секунды Rose, it really wasn't that hard. After that, James broke free of Fred's grip, and...left.'' Rose slumped back into her bed. ''It's all my fault.'' She murmured. ''I should never have done this, it's just-'' Victoire cut her off. ''It's not your fault. Now get dressed, and we'll be waiting for Ты in the Common Room.'' With that, her three cousins got off her постель, кровати and left the room. Rose was alone since all of her Друзья had gotten up and left to do something fun for the weekend. She did what Victoire asked, and walked into the Common Room. They were standing there, and Rose wiped away tears. She was still very shook up. ''Well, come on...'' Lucy said. She turned around and left the Common Room with Victoire and Roxanne and Rose followed. The four of them walked to the Great Hall and took a сиденье, место, сиденья at the Gryffindor table. Rose was eating her breakfast when she realized that Scorpius wasn't at the D.A. Meeting yesterday. или was he? Her memory was so foggy from crying her eyes out last night. All of the sudden, Owls came swooping down upon the Hogwarts students. Rose saw Amber instantly. She held her hands out and Amber dropped her mail into her hands. Only two things, The Daily Prophet and-a letter from Hugo! She tore open the envelope and read the letter inside. It said:
I'm sorry about all of that. It sounds...horrible. And I know that our cousins can be a bit annoying sometimes, but think about life without them. No one to protect Ты when Ты ever get teased, no one to share your memories with. And I'm pretty sure other people understand you, Rose. Think about...Albus. He isn't mad at you, is he? If he isn't, then tell him what Ты told me. He's like you, Rose. He understands you. His parents got teased and taunted as well. It wasn't just us. Think about it, Rosie. Just think.
Rose now, felt a lot better. She knew that James would forgive her eventually, and he would have to since they saw a lot of each other outside school. She would have to write a letter back to Hugo soon, but now, she didn't care. Now, she wanted to go visit Hagrid.
