Snape grumbling about life, Potter, and everything.
- "all to well,"
"Outstrip" is one word.
The last line could be a lot stronger, but overall, it's insightful. I would have expected Snape to respect the Malfoys for their patience. Part of the skill of laying a trap is walking away and expecting that it will spring in the fullness of time. Venom of the serpent.
