He sought in himself either remorse for having angered his father or regret at leaving home for the first time in his life on bad terms with him, and was horrified to find neither. What meant still more to him was that he sought and did not find in himself the former tenderness for his son which he had hoped to reawaken by caressing the boy and taking him on his knee.,｀Oh, yes, you do,¨ said Dumbledore, still more calmly. ｀You have now lost your mother, your father, and the closest thing to a parent you have ever known.
