"Boys keep back!" barked Professor Grubbly-Plank, throwing out an arm and catching Harry hard in the chest. "They prefer the woman's touch, unicorns. Girls to the front, and approach with care, come on, easy does it. ..."
Just as it had before he faced the Horntail, time was slipping away as though somebody had bewitched the clocks to go extra-fast.
