103 words.


"Hey, Mum?"

Molly jumped. She had been sitting at the kitchen table, engrossed in a Gilderoy Lockhart book, and she looked irritated at being interrupted. "What is it Fred?" she snapped.

"I'm not Fred–"

"George, then!"

"I'm Ron," Ron said. Molly flushed.

"Oh, yes, of course. What is it, Ron?"

"Nothing," he said. "Just that the roast is on fire and you don't seem to have noticed because you're buried in that book."

Molly sprung to her feet to save the roast, and Ron turned to his brothers, shaking his head. "Sometimes I think she loves that bloody book more than us."
