¡°Harry, what do you think you'd do if you saw yourself bursting into Hagrid's house?¡± said Hermione.
¡°Look at him!¡± he said furiously to Hermione, dangling Scabbers in front of her. ¡°He's skin and bone! You keep that cat away from him!¡±
¡°Oddsbodkins,¡± said Harry to Sir Cadogan, who looked extremely disappointed and reluctantly swung forward to let them into the common room. There was a sudden, excited murmur as every head turned and the next moment, Harry was surrounded by people exclaiming over his Firebolt.
¡°Get off,¡± he murmured, trying to push Crookshanks off him.
¡°Yeah,¡± said Harry, thinking of his feeble Patronus and wishing it were stronger.
