Dear Tom, I have a question.
What is it like to have a crush on someone?
- You're asking me?
You're the diary spirit.
- I don't know from personal experience, but I have heard it said that a crush is when you really like someone and can't stop thinking about them.
I think a might have a crush on you. Which is weird, because you are not real, you're just a diary. And I also still have a crush on Harry.
- Harry Potter. He's brilliant. He defeated Voldemort last year.
- Is that so?
Everybody thinks he's practically a hero. So I guess I don't stand a change.
- So then you thought you could have a crush on me instead?
It's not like that! It's… complicated.
- Things like that usually are.
