Harry Potter 7 and Caleb

(if you haven't read it, there will be spoilers)

Caleb is reading the 7th Harry Potter to begin his summer. He has read the first six over the past year. Today, we were driving home from Britnee's graduation/birthday party when we heard a big sigh from the back seat. I looked back, and there was Caleb, a little pale with his hand on his forehead.

"What's the matter Cale?"
"Dobbie just died."

A heaviness settled over all of us. I remember when Dobbie died the first time for me. One of the saddest book moments that I have ever had. But I think seeing Caleb try to come to terms with it was even more heart-wrenching than Dobbie's death itself.
