Sirius was lounging in his chair at his ease, tilting it back on two legs.

“Oh honestly,” said Mrs. Weasley despairingly. “Well, on your own head be it!”

“You’re less like your father than I thought,” he said finally, a definite coolness in his voice. “The risk would’ve been what made it fun for James.”
