He sighed. [i "Yeah, I do. I just feel awful to drag you guys into something else that will possibly get you into major trouble."]
[b "Dude, it was their idea,"] Bennett pointed at the girls. [b "Technically they're dragging [i you] into this. You're an accomplice in their devious plans."]
"but you see my point, don't you Harry?" Keeva asked and looked up at him.
Hermione looked ready to lecture him, but Bennett gave a quick shake of his head to warn her off. [b "I'm sure that'll be a conversation to be had another day, when we don't have important plans to make,"] he attempted to back Keeva's support up.
[i "It's not that much of a conversation. Basilisk bit me. Fawkes healed me. Somehow not dead yet. End of story,"] Harry muttered.
[b "Sounds like it'll be a bestseller,"] Bennett chucked a gummy bear at him.
"still. my point is you're strong but you're stronger with friends on your side." keeva said and hugged him. "and i knew about the bite because i talked to fawkes."
[i "Yeah but if Fawkes hadn't come down and used his tears on my arm, the Basilisk bite would have killed me right then,"] Harry reminded them.
[i "You didn't say anything about getting bit by the Basilisk,"] Hermione looked horrified.
[b "Kind of majorly important detail to leave out of that story, dude,"] Bennett looked just as upset.
[i "It was healed up by the time we got out of the Chamber. I didn't think it was vital information to pass on, what with Hermione just coming out of her petrified state and Ron freaking out about almost losing Ginny to Voldemort's journal,"] he defended himself.
Keeva smiled gently and hugged him tightly. "If you weren't around, do you really think that Hermione would come out of that shell of hers?" She asked and looked up at him. "Who was the guy who fought the basilisk by himself and then had to deal with Tom Riddle and his diary?"
[i "Strong is one thing, but do I have the smarts to back it up? What good is casting a Patronus if I'm not smart enough to help others learn?"]
Bennett frowned, watching his friend's thoughts derail - a lovely insecurity that Harry was burdened with, courtesy of a decade at the hands of the Dursleys berating him and ensuring he felt inferior.
She smiled and said. "Come on, Harry. You're a lot stronger than you think."
Harry barely blinked. [i "Should I be the one to do this? Realistically, I'm an average student at best, and Voldemort's escaped from me more times than I'd like to admit. Doesn't that disqualify me as the most qualified for this?"]
Bennett snorted. [b "I think you mean 'you survived Voldemort's attacks more times than you'd like to admit'. That makes you the most qualified on the planet."]
keeva poked him gently and asked. "you okay, bro?"
As per usual, Harry was lost in his thoughts. Ron waved a hand in front of his face, but the boy was truly distracted. [b "I think he's gone into stage five panic mode,"] Bennett observed.
She smirked slightly and sipped her absinthe quietly.
[i "Do I even want to know where you got the firewhisky?"] Hermione inquired.
[b "The twins stole it from Sirius, and then I stole it from the twins,"] he answered.
She rolled her eyes and drank a big swig rolling it around her tongue slightly before swallowing.
[b "Honorary Weasley triplet over here,"] Bennett was convinced.
[i "It was worse than the potion Madam Pomfrey made me drink to grow my bones back,"] Harry gagged.
