"How're we getting to King's Cross tomorrow, Dad?" asked Fred as they dug into a sumptuous chocolate pudding.
"I can't go. The Dursleys didn't sign my permission form, and Fudge wouldn't either."
"Clever Crookshanks, did you catch that all by yourself?" said Hermione.
"Right, Neville," said Professor Lupin. "First things first: what would you say is the thing that frightens you most in the world?"
"Stop it, Oliver, you're embarrassing us," said Fred and George Weasley together, pretending to blush.
Harry turned too. They were at the top of the steps now, watching the rest of the class pass them, heading for the Great Hall and lunch.
It happened in a flash of steely talons; Malfoy let out a highpitched scream and next moment, Hagrid was wrestling Buckbeak back into his collar as he strained to get at Malfoy, who lay curled in the grass, blood blossoming over his robes.
"How's Scabbers?" Hermione asked timidly as they stripped fat pink pods from the plants and emptied the shining beans into a wooden pail.

"Settle down, settle down," said Professor Snape idly.
"Sorry," said Harry hastily. "Sorry, I -- I forgot --"
"But Harry will be perfectly safe at Hogwarts."
"Please, Professor, I -- I think I've lost
"What was that?"
"Couldn't have put it better myself," said Professor Lupin, and Hermione glowed. "So the boggart sitting in the darkness within has not yet assumed a form. He does not yet know what will frighten the person on the other side of the door. Nobody knows what a boggart looks like when he is alone, but when I let him out, he will immediately become whatever each of us most fears.
Harry lay listening to the muffled shouting next door and wondered why he didn't feel more scared. Sirius Black had murdered thirteen people with one curse; Mr. and Mrs, Weasley obviously thought Harry would be panic-stricken if he knew the truth. But Harry happened to agree wholeheartedly with Mrs. Weasley that the safest place on earth was wherever Albus Dumbledore happened to be. Didn't people always say that Dumbledore was the only person Lord Voldemort had ever been afraid of? Surely Black, as Voldemort's right-hand man, would be just as frightened of him?。
