"Er -- Minister? Can I ask you something?"
"Fine, thanks," said Harry as he, Ron, and Hermione joined Mr. Weasley with A their shopping.
THE LEAKY CAULDRON
"'Sibyll Trelawney, Divination teacher,"' Harry read. "How're we supposed to get up there?"
"No one knows how he got out of Azkaban," said Ron uncomfortably. "No one's ever done it before. And he was a top-security prisoner too."
"Where?" said Harry and Ron quickly. On the other side of the table, Malfoy looked up, listening closely.
"Ah, starting Divination, are you?" said the manager, stripping off his gloves and leading Harry into the back of the shop, where there was a corner devoted to fortune-telling. A small table was stacked with volumes such as Predicting the Unpredictable: Insulate Yourself Against Shocks and Broken Balls: When Fortunes Turn Foul.
"Yeah," said Malfoy, putting on a brave sort of grimace. But Harry saw him wink at Crabbe and Goyle when Pansy had looked away.
Ron made a violent gesture in midair.
"And, sir, I'll need this shrivelfig skinned," said Malfoy, his voice full of malicious laughter.
"What would it have been for you?" said Ron, sniggering. "A piece of homework that only got nine out of ten?"
"Congratulations, Hagrid!" Hermione squealed as they reached the teachers' table.
"We thought Azkaban was perfectly safe. If Black can break out of Azkaban, he can break into Hogwarts."
"Hasn' -- hasn' anyone bin able ter open their books?" said Hagrid, looking crestfallen.
"So that's why you're putting it on," said Harry, accidentally beheading a dead caterpillar because his hand was shaking in anger. "To try to get Hagrid fired."
"Not too far from here," said Seamus, who looked excited. "It was a Muggle who saw him. 'Course, she didn't really understand. The Muggles think he's just an ordinary criminal, don't they? So she phoned the telephone hot line. By the time the Ministry of Magic got there, he was gone."（央视记者 徐海霞）
The journey to King's Cross was very uneventful compared with Harry's trip on the Knight Bus. The Ministry of Magic cars seemed almost ordinary. though Harry noticed that they could slide through gaps that Uncle Vernon's new company car certainly couldn't have managed. They reached King's Cross with twenty minutes to spare; the Ministry drivers found them trolleys, unloaded their trunks, touched their hats in salute to Mr. Weasley, and drove away, somehow managing to jump to the head of an unmoving line at the traffic lights.。
