“HE – IS – NOT – DEAD!” roared Harry. “SIRIUS!”
“The traitor returns,” noted Sirius, as James collapsed onto his bed.
“You’re not really pissed I decided to go home for Christmas, are you?” asked James, rolling his eyes. “I know we said we were all going to stay, but…”
“Nah, we had a better time without you,” Sirius assured him. “You always put Peter in an awful mood. He told me he was glad you didn’t stay.”
“Don’t lie, Padfoot,” said Peter defensively. “I didn’t say that.”

Yet there was no sign of struggle. It didn’t feel right. I was scared. I set out for your parents’ house straight away. And when I saw their house, destroyed, and their bodies - I realised what Peter must have done. What I’d done.”
