HARRY’S POV It’s no wonder Russell hasn’t been found, considering I took his cold, limp body and threw it over Rose Lake’s bridge, above a lake notable for it’s various visits by suicidal individuals. If I do say so myself, I did a fairly good job. Russell was a nobody, there isn’t a single person that cares about him.
