Harvey frowns slightly and crosses his arms as he stops moving. “Why not?” He asks the younger, not even looking at Mike. “You obviously don’t want me here.”

Harvey frowns more and turns towards Mike fully. “Well, it clearly isn’t stupid if it’s been bothering you all day, so what is it?” Harvey really didn’t want to pressure Mike into telling him, but now he was starting to get concerned.

Mike sighs. “It was just - someone telling me that I, that you…” He looks at Harvey, then away again. “That I’m going to screw this up, and I just… Well, now I am screwing it up, by thinking about how I’m going to screw it up.”

"Mike." Harvey replies softy as he walk over to him and raises his chin so that the younger is looking at him. "You haven’t screwed anything up. I was worried that I did something to upset you, and I was going to apologize for it."

"You didn’t, I promise," Mike says. "I just, I’m afraid that, one of these days you’ll realize getting even more tangled up with me than our secret makes us is… Not a good idea."

He sighs. “I know better but I can’t help but worry. And so hearing it elsewhere…”

Harvey frowns slightly and crosses his arms as he stops moving. “Why not?” He asks the younger, not even looking at Mike. “You obviously don’t want me here.”

Mike stares at him. “I - what makes you think I don’t want you here?”

This time Harvey does look at him. “Mike, you’ve been upset about something all day, and it’s only gotten worse since I got here.” The older points out. “I’m not sure if I did something, and you won’t tell me, or someone else did something, and you still won’t tell me, but you’ve snapped on me three times already.”

Mike runs a hand through his hair, looking down. “I - it’s stupid. I’m sorry, I’ll stop.” He doesn’t really want to admit what’s had him upset all day, because it is stupid. So he’s got to try and shove it aside. “You didn’t do anything, just - someone said - and I can’t help but dwell on it. It’s nothing important, though.”

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: AUSTRALIA

Originally located in Arnhem Land, The Australian College of Sorcery and Witchcraft was a sprawling campus of large huts that eventually coalesced into one single structure. The college detached from mainland Australia soon after British settlement in order maintain their practices and culture. Ever since, the school has been drifting haphazardly in the ocean, although it never strays far from the Australian coast for ancient magic keeps the school tethered to Australian soil. Every year, a team of witches and wizards must be employed to anchor the floating campus so students aren’t forced into a cat-and-mouse chase at the beginning of the year in order to attend school (a frustrating endeavour which often results in the postponing of classes due to a large number of absences). To students’ great enjoyment, various creatures (including the occasional mermaid) can often be found sunbathing around the perimeter of the campus which gently slopes into the water. Due to their exposure to unusually friendly oceanic creatures, the college boasts incredibly extensive courses in aquatic-life studies, and is held in high esteem by the international wizarding community for its innovations in water magic.

"

Olivia, my eldest daughter, caught measles when she was seven years old. As the illness took its usual course I can remember reading to her often in bed and not feeling particularly alarmed about it. Then one morning, when she was well on the road to recovery, I was sitting on her bed showing her how to fashion little animals out of coloured pipe-cleaners, and when it came to her turn to make one herself, I noticed that her fingers and her mind were not working together and she couldn’t do anything.

“Are you feeling all right?” I asked her.

“I feel all sleepy, ” she said.

In an hour, she was unconscious. In twelve hours she was dead.

The measles had turned into a terrible thing called measles encephalitis and there was nothing the doctors could do to save her.

That was twenty-four years ago in 1962, but even now, if a child with measles happens to develop the same deadly reaction from measles as Olivia did, there would still be nothing the doctors could do to help her.

On the other hand, there is today something that parents can do to make sure that this sort of tragedy does not happen to a child of theirs. They can insist that their child is immunised against measles. I was unable to do that for Olivia in 1962 because in those days a reliable measles vaccine had not been discovered. Today a good and safe vaccine is available to every family and all you have to do is to ask your doctor to administer it.

It is not yet generally accepted that measles can be a dangerous illness.

Believe me, it is. In my opinion parents who now refuse to have their children immunised are putting the lives of those children at risk.

In America, where measles immunisation is compulsory, measles like smallpox, has been virtually wiped out.

Here in Britain, because so many parents refuse, either out of obstinacy or ignorance or fear, to allow their children to be immunised, we still have a hundred thousand cases of measles every year.

Out of those, more than 10,000 will suffer side effects of one kind or another.

At least 10,000 will develop ear or chest infections.

About 20 will die.

LET THAT SINK IN.

Every year around 20 children will die in Britain from measles.

So what about the risks that your children will run from being immunised?

They are almost non-existent. Listen to this. In a district of around 300,000 people, there will be only one child every 250 years who will develop serious side effects from measles immunisation! That is about a million to one chance. I should think there would be more chance of your child choking to death on a chocolate bar than of becoming seriously ill from a measles immunisation.

So what on earth are you worrying about?

It really is almost a crime to allow your child to go unimmunised.
