"So," said Fred impatiently, "it vanished, didn't it? By next morning, it had gone!"
"It is a long time since my last visit," said Dumbledore, peering down his crooked nose at Uncle Vernon. "I must say, your agapanthus are flourishing."
She nodded almost imperceptibly and then opened her mouth, but Snape forestalled her.
When they got to their feet, she looked down at Harry and said, "You look after yourself, now."
They did it, all of them; the benches scraped as everyone in the Hall stood, and raised their goblets, and echoed, in one loud, low, rumbling voice, "Cedric Diggory."
For a brief moment he allowed himself the impossible hope that nobody would answer him. However, a voice responded at once, a crisp, decisive voice that sounded as though it were reading a prepared statement. It was coming -- as the Prime Minister had known at the first cough -- from the froglike little man wearing a long silver wig who was depicted in a small, dirty oil painting in the far corner of the room.
"Nah," said George gloomily. "Nothing like that. Stupid git. He wouldn't have the brains."
"Does he?" said Snape, his voice delicately inflected to suggest his disbelief. "Does he still, after the fiasco at the Ministry?"
"How can I help with that, sir?" |
"Doubtful that I would turn up?" Dumbledore suggested shrewdly.
"The end," said Dumbledore, looking around at them all, "of another year."
"Cedric Diggory was murdered by Lord Voldemort."
"Bye," said Harry hastily to the Dursleys, and followed Dumbledore, who paused beside Harry's trunk, upon which Hedwig's cage was perched.
"I didn't. . ." Harry began, not entirely sure whether he was being reprimanded or not.
They were halfway through their fifth game when Harry decided to ask them.
"Have you not understood me? It was only Dumbledore's protection that was keeping me out of Azkaban! Do you disagree that murdering his favorite student might have turned him against me? But there was more to it than that. I should remind you that when Potter first arrived at Hogwarts there were still many stories circulating about him, rumors that he himself was a great Dark wizard, which was how he had survived the Dark Lord's attack. Indeed, many of the Dark Lords old followers thought Potter might be a standard around which we could all rally once more. I was curious, 1 admit it, and not at all inclined to murder him the moment he set fool in the castle.？
