¡°Get out of the way, Potter, you're in enough trouble already,¡± snarled Snape. ¡°If I hadn't been here to save your skin ¡ª¡±
¡°Don't be silly,¡± said Hermione in a panicky voice. ¡°Harry doesn't want to kill anyone, do you, Harry?¡±
¡°We need to find her,¡± said Dumbledore. ¡°Professor McGonagall, please go to Mr. Filch at once and tell him to search every painting in the castle for the Fat Lady.¡±
¡°Sorry,¡± said Harry hastily. ¡°Sorry, I ¡ª I forgot ¡ª¡±
¡°How can you stand this?¡± he asked Hermione fiercely. ¡°Just standing here and watching it happen?¡± He hesitated. ¡°I'm going to grab the cloak!¡±
