"I want to come with you tomorrow. I'll stand in the back in the shadows if you want. But I want to be there if something goes wrong." "Claire, I love you to pieces but I don't want you there for that reason. With the dark lord you never know what is going through that head of his. And I don't want to take the chance of him hurting you."
"Is this because you really don't want me to get hurt or is it about the baby. Because before you would have been like well come on if you want." "yes, this is some what to do with the baby if you weren't 8 ½ months pregnant. But that is not the whole reason." "O, really. I cant see what that could possibly be?"
"I don't know what he will do to you. I could not stand to lose you. It feels like I just got you. If he notices that you are there …." I felt a tug at my heart, as thought I knew what he had to watch in the past. You don't know what he has been through you never will. But I don't want anything to happen to him, I don't want to raise our child alone. I could not bare the thought of her asking why her father was not here with us.
" um… maybe I can wait in the woods away from the boat house. I want to be there, Severus. I don't want to raise our baby alone."
