And to You, If You Have Stuck With Harry Until The Very End
It felt most strange to stand here in the silence and know that he was about to leave the house for the last time. Long ago, when he had been left alone while the Dursleys went out to enjoy themselves,
the hours of solitude had been a rare treat: Pausing only to sneak
something tasty from the fridge, he had rushed upstairs to play on Dudley’s computer, or put on the television and flicked through the
channels to his heart’s content. It gave him an odd, empty feeling to
remember those times; it was like remembering a younger brother
whom he had lost.
“You’re right. But before you try to kill
me, I’d advise you to think about what you’ve done. . . . Think, and
try for some remorse, Riddle. . . .”
“What is this?”
Of all the things that Harry had said to him, beyond any revelation or taunt, nothing had shocked Voldemort like this. Harry
saw his pupils contract to thin slits, saw the skin around his eyes
“It’s your one last chance,” said Harry, “it’s all you’ve got left. . . .
I’ve seen what you’ll be otherwise. . . . Be a man . . . try . . . Try for
some remorse. . . .”
