By eleven o'clock the whole school seemed to be out in the stands around the Quidditch pitch. Many students had binoculars. The seats might be raised high in the air, but it was still difficult to see what was going on sometimes.
"And you're not sitting with the prefects today, either," said
Then, one breakfast time, Hedwig brought Harry another note from Hagrid. He had written only two words: It's hatching.
"Come on," he said to Ron. He pushed open the portrait of the Fat Lady and climbed through the hole.
Harry waited outside in the corridor to see if the other two had found anything, but he wasn't very hopeful. They had been looking for two weeks, after A, but as they only had odd moments between lessons it wasn't surprising they'd found nothing. What they really needed was a nice long search without Madam Pince breathing down their necks.
No one could wait for the holidays to start. While the Gryffindor common room and the Great Hall had roaring fires, the drafty corridors had become icy and a bitter wind rattled the windows in the classrooms. Worst of all were Professor Snape's classes down in the dungeons, where their breath rose in a mist before them and they kept as close as possible to their hot cauldrons.
Harry saw it. In a great rush of excitement he dived downward after the streak of gold. Slytherin Seeker Terence Higgs had seen it, too. Neck and neck they hurtled toward the Snitch -all the Chasers seemed to have forgotten what they were supposed to be doing as they hung in midair to watch.
"He's doing something -- jinxing the broom," said Hermione.
"The floor?" Harry suggested. "I wasn't looking at its feet, I was too busy with its heads."
"Anyway, we've got to go, Lee Jordan reckons he's found a new secret passageway out of the school."
"But he seemed to really hate me."
"What is the difference, Potter, between monkshood and wolfsbane?"
"Did you see his face, the great lump?"
"He's lost his marbles," Ron muttered in Harry's ear.
But Hagrid wasn't listening. He was humming merrily as he stoked the fire.
Hermione had become a bit more relaxed about breaking rules since Harry and Ron had saved her from the mountain troll, and she was much nicer for it. The day before Harry's first Quidditch match the three of them were out in the freezing courtyard during break, and she had conjured them up a bright blue fire that could be carried around in a jam jar. They were standing with their backs to it, getting warm, when Snape crossed the yard. Harry noticed at once that Snape was limping. Harry, Ron, and Hermione moved closer together to block the fire from view; they were sure it wouldn't be allowed. Unfortunately, something about their guilty faces caught Snape's eye. He limped over. He hadn't seen the fire, but he seemed to be looking for a reason to tell them off anyway.
