"Funny you should ask," said Hermione, with a nasty look at Ron. She took off the lid and showed them the contents.
There was a pleasant feeling of anticipation in the air that day. Nobody was very attentive in lessons, being much more interested in the arrival that evening of the people from Beauxbatons and Durmstrang; even Potions was more bearable than usual, as it was half an hour shorter. When the bell rang early, Harry, Ron, and Hermione hurried up to Gryffindor Tower, deposited their bags and books as they had been instructed, pulled on their cloaks, and rushed back downstairs into the entrance hall.
But Madame Maxime had already put her arm around Fleur's shoulders and was leading her swiftly out of the room. Harry could hear them both talking very fast in French as they went off into the Great Hall. Karkaroff beckoned to Krum, and they, too, exited, though in silence.
But Angelina had now swooped down upon him; "Oh if it couldn't be me, at least it's a Gryffindor -"
"I think that's all, is it, Albus?"
Both of them stared just as blankly back.
"Well. . . no one else got across the Age Line," said Ron. "Not even Fred and George.
SUPPORT CEDRIC DIGGORY-- THE REAL HOGWARTS CHAMPION!
"Well, borrow one of the school owls, then, anyone can use them," said Hermione.
"Certainly!" cried Bagman. "That is - if Harry has no objection?"
"Maybe not that small, Ludo," said Rita Skeeter, her eyes on Harry.
"The instructions for the tasks the champions will face this year have already been examined by Mr. Crouch and Mr. Bagman," said Dumbledore as Filch placed the chest carefully on the table before him, "and they have made the necessary arrangements for each challenge. There will be three tasks, spaced throughout the school year, and they will test the champions in many different ways.. their magical prowess - their daring -their powers of deduction - and, of course, their ability to cope with danger."
"Reducio," Moody muttered, and the spider shrank back to its proper size. He put it back into the jar.
. . I don't hear him saying a word. . .
Hermione, who had turned rather pink again, seemed to be trying not to look too pleased with herself.
Harry got a shock to find himself facing the Fat Lady already. He had barely noticed where his feet were carrying him. It was also a surprise to see that she was not alone in her frame. The wizened witch who had flitted into her neighbor's painting when he had joined the champions downstairs was now sitting smugly beside the Fat Lady. She must have dashed through every picture lining seven staircases to reach here before him. Both she and the Fat Lady were looking down at him with the keenest interest.？
Viktor Krum straightened up. His surly face darkened as he surveyed Harry. Cedric looked nonplussed. He looked from Bagman to Harry and back again as though sure he must have misheard what Bagman had said. Fleur Delacour, however, tossed her hair, smiling, and said, "Oh, vairy funny joke, Meester Bagman."。
