THE MAGIC BEGINS ϟ 7. Favourite sceneLily’s smile was widest of all. She pushed her long hair back as she drew close to him, and her green eyes, so like his, searched his face hungrily, as though she would never be able to look at him enough.
“You’ve been so brave.”
He could not speak. His eyes feasted on her, and he thought that he would like to stand and look at her forever, and that would be enough.
“You are nearly there,” said James. “Very close. We are… so proud of you.”
“Does it hurt?”
The childish question had fallen from Harry’s lips before he could stop it.
“Dying? Not at all,” said Sirius. “Quicker and easier than falling asleep.”
“And he will want it to be quick. He wants it over,” said Lupin.
“I didn’t want you to die,” Harry said. These words came without his volition. “Any of you. I’m sorry-“
He addressed Lupin more than any of them, beseeching him.
“-right after you’d had your son… Remus, I’m sorry-“
“I am sorry too,” said Lupin. “Sorry I will never know him… but he will know why I died and hope he will understand. I was trying to make a world in which he could live a happier life.”
A chilly breeze that seemed to emanate from the heart of the forest lifted the hair at Harry’s brow. He knew that they would not tell him to go, that it would have to be his decision.
“You’ll stay with me?”
“Until the very end,” said James.
“They won’t be able to see you?” asked Harry.
“We are part of you,” sais Sirius. “Invisible to anyone else.”
Harry looked at his mother.
“Stay close to me,” he said quietly.
I was a total fucking wreck when I read this (the text in bold). The rest of it, especially Harry’s father, is very emotional too, of course. But I grew up without a mother; she died when I was little. I didn’t realise what this has meant for me until very late in life. I knew exactly what it meant for Harry when he looked into his mother’s eyes.
