I would have guessed that every muggle afficionado have already read the last installment of JK Rowling's Harry Potter after its release in July 21. I claim to be a fan, but I have only finished the 7th book last weekend. I bought the book on a Friday, before I headed to Cinemanila International Festival to see Thailand’s entry, The Unseeable. My professor dismissed us early after an hour of lecture so I decided to see at least one entry film. It was a Friday after all.
When I got home in LB on a Saturday, I told my parents not to bug me for two days as I was going to lock myself up. My mother was in a weary mood. She sometimes hates the words that are coming out from my mouth. I went up to the old house to read. No one lives there, so no one would dare bother me. (There are of course the 'unseeable creatures' but we've become friends and acquiantance already). My sister who was persistent that I purchase the book immediately wanted to borrow it that same week so I decided to finish it in two days. Besides, I hate bringing it back to QC because my backpack (with my dslr and my laundry clothes and bedsheet) was already heavy to bear.
I spent my hours in this window grill, which practically made my ass sore so I needed to change positions and places from time to time. Like the sofa, rocking chair, stairways, etc. I love this window. It feels old and homey. I never noticed the bougainvillea before. My father was of course responsible for it.
The couch was old and dusty, nonetheless soft and comfortable for a long and enduring reading. It made me sleep for awhile.
The rocking chair of course which was so comfortable it made me feel sleepy also. By noon time, I was already behind my schedule. The first few chapters were drills.
And so alas, I made it through the Epilogue. I hate being a spoiler but the last few paragraphs in the photo are least of a give away since this comes after 19 years already. When Harry and Ginny, Ron and Hermione have their own children already. The name Albus Severus didn't seem to be a good combination in my opinion. But I love Snape! I never hated him since the first few books...
My niece wanted to read it next but she's too young to even lift the book. Haha! Her mother would have to steal it away from her using an Elder wand. But then again, I've placed some spells in the book so my niece is protected from her mother. Engorgio!
