He - stares a bit, and then catches himself staring and goes red and looks away a bit sheepishly.

"Sorry," Ron says.  "Your parents were really cool, you know.  They're kind of legends."

Permalink

She ducks her head, smiling shyly. "Yeah... They sound cool."

Permalink

"Do you remember anything about them?" he asks.

Permalink

She closes in, shaking her head.

Oh no change the subject quick.

"My family's pretty boring except that there's so many of us," he says, and laughs a little.  "My dad works in the Ministry..."

Permalink

That perks her up. "Are your family all wizards?"

Permalink

"Yeah," he says, and frowns.  "I think so.  Mum might have a second cousin who's a muggle?  But we're a big wizard family."

Permalink

"What's living with wizards like?"

Permalink

"It's all right," he says, and shrugs one shoulder.  "We cast spells a lot?  And a lotta stuff's magic.  We've got a ghoul in the attic, do muggles have ghouls?"

Permalink

She shakes her head. "Not that I know of..."

Permalink

"Mum says you can use ghoul slime in potions sometimes, but mostly he just makes a lot of noise."

Permalink

"Is he a person?"

Permalink

"He's more like a pet, except he mostly keeps to himself in the attic."

Permalink

"That's a weird pet!"

Permalink

Ron giggles.  "I think everyone in my family thinks so too."

Permalink

Smile. "Have you had him for long?"

Permalink

He crinkles up his nose in thought.  "I can't remember getting him, but it might've been after I was born."

Permalink

She nods, and mentally casts around for something else to say.

(Talking to people is awkward...)

Permalink

Ron's apparently happy to fill the silence: "Were you really raised by muggles until Hogwarts found you?  How'd you get to Diagon Alley?"

Permalink

"I was. Hagrid found me and brought me to Diagon Alley. I've been staying with him since..."

Permalink

"Rubeus Hagrid, the gamekeeper?  What's he like?"

Permalink

She grins. "He's really nice!" And starts rambling on Hagrid a bit.
