"We've got to go," said Harry at once. "He can't just sit there on his own, waiting for the executioner!"
"You called, Severus?" said Lupin mildly.
I would hate for you to run away with a false idea of your father, Potter," he said, a terrible grin twisting his face. "Have you been imagining some act of glorious heroism? Then let me correct you -- your saintly father and his friends played a highly amusing joke on me that would have resulted in my death if your father hadn't got cold feet at the last moment. There was nothing brave about what he did. He was saving his own skin as much as mine. Had their joke succeeded, he would have been expelled from Hogwarts."
Harry looked around to check that Hermione was well out of earshot.
"No blood? No weeping Hagrid?"
"Didn't you ever hear, Ron?" said Lupin. "The biggest bit of Peter they found was his finger."
Harry was angry enough to hit Malfoy, but couldn't reach -- Malfoy was panting with the effort of holding onto the Firebolt, but his eyes were sparkling maliciously. He had achieved what he'd wanted to do -- the Snitch had disappeared again.
Ron clutched Scabbers closer to his chest.
"We can't," said Ron, who was paper-white. "He'll be in worse trouble if they know we've been to see him...."
"I -- gave -- Harry -- that -- stuff," he choked. "Bought -- it... in Zonko's... ages -- ago..."
"Get away from him -- get away -- Scabbers, come here --"
"Why did Snape think I'd got it from the manufacturers?"
"I certainly didn't authorize this, Professor!" said Percy, puffing himself up indignantly. "I was just telling them all to get back to bed! My brother Ron here had a nightmare --"
"That was quite some Patronus," said a voice in Harry's ear.
"You've got to listen to me," Black said, and there was a note of urgency in his voice now. "You'll regret it if you don't.... You don't understand...."
Ron had become an instant celebrity. For the first time in his life, people were paying more attention to him than to Harry, and it was clear that Ron was rather enjoying the experience. Though still severely shaken by the night's events, he was happy to tell anyone who asked what had happened, with a wealth of detail.
