GoF: A Mother's Hug



I have always absolutely loved this part of the Forth book. Might even be my favourite bit. The Goblet of Fire used to be my favourite book, I haven't read it for ages because one, the binding is falling off/fallen off, and two, the film kind of ruined it for me...

Regardless, this is the scene at the end in the hospital wing when Molly Weasley hugs Harry in a way he's never been hugged before. As if by a mother. Honestly, tears welling, so brilliant.

Now, I am going to edit and colour this because I haven't finished drawing it but I have a little problem. I haven't got the forth book up here in Newcastle, it's at home in Liverpool a good 300 miles away and so far I've drawn this from memory of what happens in the scene. I would however like to know the actual extract I have taken it from to maybe refine the details a little.
Can anyone maybe tell me it? Would really appreciate it :aww:

"It's not your fault, Harry," Mrs. Weasley whispered.

"I told him to take the cup with me," said Harry.
Now the burning feeling was in his throat too. He wished Ron would look away.
Mrs. Weasley set the potion down on the bedside cabinet, bent down, and put her arms around Harry. He had no memory of ever being hugged like this, as though by a mother. The full weight of everything he had seen that night seemed to fall in upon him as Mrs. Weasley held him to her. His mother's face, his father's voice, the sight of Cedric dead on the ground all started spinning in his head, until he could hardly bare it, until he was screwing up his face against the howl of misery fighting to get out of him.
There was a loud slamming noise and Mrs. Weasley and Harry broke apart.

Thanks to PoireGourmande and SleepyShipper for telling me the quote!!
