"Oh, it's you, Ronan," said Hagrid in relief. "How are yeh?"
"It's tonight," said Harry, once he was sure Professor McGonagall was out of earshot. "Snape's going through the trapdoor tonight. He's found out everything he needs, and now he's got Dumbledore out of the way. He sent that note, I bet the Ministry of Magic will get a real shock when Dumbledore turns up."
Harry did the best he could, trying to ignore the stabbing pains in his forehead, which had been bothering him ever since his trip into the forest. Neville thought Harry had a bad case of exam nerves because Harry couldn't sleep, but the truth was that Harry kept being woken by his old nightmare, except that it was now worse than ever because there was a hooded figure dripping blood in it.
"I see the Stone... I'm presenting it to my master... but where is it?"
"Well?" said Quirrell impatiently. "What do you see?"
"Let me speak to him... face-to-face..."
He took a step forward and Neville dropped Trevor the toad, who leapt out of sight.
Hermione pointed at a rounded bottle at the right end of the line.
"Don't you think it's a bit odd," said Harry, scrambling up the grassy slope, "that what Hagrid wants more than anything else is a dragon, and a stranger turns up who just happens to have an egg in his pocket? How many people wander around with dragon eggs if it's against wizard law? Lucky they found Hagrid, don't you think? Why didn't I see it before?"
They watched the birds soaring overhead, glittering -- glittering?
The following morning, notes were delivered to Harry, Hermione, and Neville at the breakfast table. They were all the same:
Madam Pomfrey, the nurse, was a nice woman, but very strict.
"Sent owls off ter all yer parents' old school friends, askin' fer photos... knew yeh didn' have any... d'yeh like it?"
"And we'd better stay outside the third-floor corridor," Harry told Ron. "Come on."
"We've got to go to Dumbledore," said Harry. "Hagrid told that stranger how to get past Fluffy, and it was either Snape or Voldemort under that cloak -- it must've been easy, once he'd got Hagrid drunk. I just hope Dumbledore believes us. Firenze might back us up if Bane doesn't stop him. Where's Dumbledore's office?"
