[October 31, 1980] [Hogwarts, Scotland]
“Oh, my…” muttered sorrowfully from Professor McGonagall’s lips as she tried to hold back her tears. Hagrid, the half-giant, wasn’t as considerate.
“I…I’m so sorry!!” Hagrid said as he continues to wipe what looks like never ending tears, never moving from his spot in the middle of their headmaster’s office.
It had only been a couple of minutes since Hagrid delivered the dreadful news but to them the silence seemed like it has been hours. The small group of four that had gathered in Dumbledore’s office having just finished a discussion on moving the Potters before the Dark Lord found out of their address, had ironically been just told of the tragic news of their deaths by a weeping half-giant holding a baby. Needless to say, it was the most inconsolable failure that they had ever had, more so to Hagrid.
“And the other…?” asked the Headmaster after those few minutes of mournful silence. Professor Snape looked up expectantly to the half-giant. Hagrid, if possible, only wept more.
“I-I… I lost him.”
Understandably, no words were needed to be said after.
