"Ready?" Ron called, his face pale but determined. "Here I go - now, don't hang around once you've won."
Harry turned to Hermione.
Someone standing outside the Great Hall might well have thought some sort of explosion had taken place, so loud was the noise that erupted from the Gryffindor table. Harry, Ron, and Hermione stood up to yell and cheer as Neville, white with shock, disappeared under a pile of people hugging him. He had never won so much as a point for Gryffindor before. Harry, still cheering, nudged Ron in the ribs and pointed at Malfoy, who couldn't have looked more stunned and horrified if he'd just had the Body-Bind Curse put on him.
"You can't --"
"Did that sound like hooves to you? Nah, if yeh ask me, that was what's bin killin' the unicorns -- never heard anythin' like it before."
Harry sank down next to the bowl of peas. "What did you talk to him about, Hagrid? Did you mention Hogwarts at all?"
Harry tried to take a step backward but his legs wouldn't move.
"What about you?"
"Can you think of nobody who has waited many years to return to power, who has clung to life, awaiting their chance?"
"Do you realize who this is?" said Firenze. "This is the Potter boy. The quicker he leaves this forest, the better."
"Oh, you know about Nicolas?" said Dumbledore, sounding quite delighted. "You did do the thing properly, didn't you? Well, Nicolas and I have had a little chat, and agreed it's all for the best."
"Look," said Harry, throwing caution to the winds, "Professor -- it's about the Sorcerer's tone --"
Dumbledore raised his hand. The room gradually fell silent.
"Why's Bane so angry?" he asked. "What was that thing you saved me from, anyway?"
He, Ron, and Hermione passed through the gateway together. "There he is, Mom, there he is, look!"
It was as though an iron fist had clenched suddenly around Harry's heart. Over the rustling of the trees, he seemed to hear once more what Hagrid had told him on the night they had met: "Some say he died. Codswallop, in my opinion. Dunno if he had enough human left in him to die.",
