But Harry had just seen -- stinking toward them, his body low to the ground, wide yellow eyes glinting eerily in the darkness -- Crookshanks. Whether he could see them or was following the sound of Scabbers's squeaks, Harry couldn't tell.
"THIRTY-ZERO! TAKE THAT, YOU DIRTY, CHEATING --"
Snape's sallow skin had gone the color of sour milk.
"What? Oh no!" Hermione squeaked. "I forgot to go to Charms!"
"Rubbish," said Ron. "Couldn't see a thing, so I made some stuff up. Don't think she was convinced, though...."
Harry glanced into the crystal ball but saw nothing but swirling white mist. Had Professor Trelawney really seen the Grim again? Would he? The last thing he needed was another near-fatal accident, with the Quidditch final drawing ever nearer.
"Perce -- Sirius Black!" said Ron faintly. "In our dormitory! With a knife! Woke me up!"
"Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Moony and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugle git."
"That's weird," said Harry, staring at Ron. "Maybe -- maybe she went to the bathroom or something?"
"Buckbeaks case against the Committee fer the Disposal o' Dangerous Creatures," said Hagrid. "This Friday. Him an' me'll be goin' down ter London together. I've booked two beds on the Knight Bus...."
"Everyone back upstairs!" said Percy, hurrying into the common room and pinning his Head Boy badge to his pajamas as he spoke.
Harry turned around to see Professor Lupin, who looked both shaken and pleased.
"Yes," said Harry firmly.
"Twelve years, in fact," said Lupin. "Didn't you ever wonder why he was living so long?"
"If you haven't been helping him," he said, with a furious glance at Black, "how did you know he was here?"
They had Potions that afternoon, which was an unqualified disaster. Try as Harry might, he couldn't get his Confusing Concoction to thicken, and Snape, standing watch with an air of vindictive pleasure, scribbled something that looked suspiciously like a zero onto his notes before moving away.
"Don't expect me to cover up for you again, Harry. I cannot make you take Sirius Black seriously. But I would have thought that what you have heard when the dementors draw near you would have had more of an effect on you. Your parents gave their lives to keep you alive, Harry. A poor way to repay them -- gambling their sacrifice for a bag of magic tricks.";
