"I didn't know you were bringing her, Hagrid," Charlie said, frowning. "The champions aren't supposed to know what's coming - she's bound to tell her student, isn't she?"
"D'you - d'you want to go to the ball with me?" said Harry. Why did he have to go red now? Why?
"Right then, Potter, the first aid tent, please. . ." said Professor McGonagall.
Resisting the urge to give Ron a good hard poke in the back of the head, he finally reached the table and sat down at it.
"Yeah," said Harry.
As he soared upward, as the wind rushed through his hair, as the crowd's faces became mere flesh-colored pinpnicks below, and the Horntail shrank to the size of a dog, he realized that he had heft not only the ground behind, but also his fear. . . . He was back where he belonged....
"Can Dobby give Harry Potter his present?" he squeaked tentatively.
"She should've interviewed Snape," said Harry grimly. "He'd give her the goods on me any day. 'Potter has been crossing lines ever since he first arrived at this school. . . .'"
"What? Oh yeah . . . ouch . . . interesting," said Harry as she stepped on his foot.
"Thanks, Hagrid," said Harry loudly, so that Hagrid wouldn't blunder on and reveal that he had shown Harry the dragons beforehand.
"I didn't cheat," said Harry sharply. "It was - a sort of accident that I found out."
"Oh don't mind me!" the Fat Lady called irritably after them. "Don't apologize for bothering me! I'll just hang here, wide open, until you get back, shall I?"
"Your partners for the Yule Ball, Potter," she said coldly. "Your dance partners."
Cedric was still hooking at him in a slightly suspicious way when Harry heard a familiar clunking noise behind him. He turned around and saw Mad-Eye Moody emerging from a nearby classroom.
"It's okay," he said, before Ron could get the words out. "Forget it."
Harry barely slept that night. When he awoke on Monday morning, he seriously considered for the first time ever just running away from Hogwarts. But as he looked around the Great Hall at breakfast time, and thought about what leaving the castle would mean, he knew he couldn't do it. It was the only place he had ever been happy. . . well, he supposed he must have been happy with his parents too, but he couldn't remember that.,
