Finally, the truth. Lying with his face pressed into the dusty carpet of the office where he had once thought he was learning the secrets of victory, Harry understood at last that he was not supposed to survive.
He's gone, Harry told himself. He's gone. He had to keep thinking it as he washed and dressed, as though repetition would dull the shock of it. He's gone and he's not coming back. And that was the simple truth of it, Harry knew, because their protective enchantments meant that it would be impossible, once they vacated this spot, for Ron to find them again.
There it was again: Choose what to believe. He wanted the truth. Why was everybody so determined that he should not get it?
It is my belief... that the truth is generally preferable to lies.
Truth...a beatiful and terrible thing and therefore must be treated with great caution.
