"She has let 'erself go, zat Tonks," Fleur mused, examining her own stunning reflection in the back of a teaspoon. "A big mistake if you ask?quot;
"I meant Hagrid to get the message," said Tonks, frowning.
The Leaky Cauldron was, for the first time in Harry's memory, completely empty. Only Tom the landlord, wizened and toothless,
"Mum, d'you honestly think You-Know-Who's going to be hiding behind a bookshelf in Flourish and Blotts?" sniggered Ron.
Then he felt his Invisibility Cloak fly off him and a voice overhead said, "Wotcher, Harry."
Pansy left. Now Harry and Malfoy were alone in the compartment. People were filing past, descending onto the dark platform.
