Albus glared a little at his sister when she asked if he really did know who he was. He had been thinking about that a lot – too much to be healthy, some might say – but he really didn’t need to have another existential crisis brought on by his sister’s question. Maybe he didn’t know who he was totally, but he was getting there. Wasn’t the journey supposed to be more important than the destination for this kind of thing, anyways? Albus wasn’t sure he believed that, but in any case, finding himself wasn’t going to be his number one priority until after he was graduated and had an income and time to find himself. Albus supposed that was why people had midlife crises – they kept putting off finding themselves until they had more money or more stability, or more time, but then never got around to it and realized it when they were old and miserable. Lily gave him a grin when he said that she was going to do something important, too, but the effect was kind of ruined by her saying that she knew that was how he felt all along. That was the thing with trying to be genuine with people – they just shoved it back in his face with jokes and sarcasm. It didn’t do much for making Al want to continue on that path, that was for sure.
Albus sighed when Lily asked if he didn’t want to see her every week. “That’s not what I said.” He responded flatly. He had said that it wouldn’t be feasible, and that was true. He was going to be working, not gallivanting around Hogwarts doing whatever Lily did. He wouldn’t have enough free time to brew her potion every week, and if she actually stopped, and thought, she would realize that. She began to give him a face that was probably supposed to make him feel bad, but just made Albus roll his eyes. “I could just not make it at all, if you’re going to be so unreasonable.” Al said. Hopefully that would shut her up.
