'Yes, of course. Well, Wormtail's here, but we're not counting vermin, are we?"
"You're mental," said George, trying to push it back at Harry.
"Then I am right, he has chosen Draco in revenge!" choked Narcissa. "He does not mean him to succeed, he wants him to be killed trying!"
"Dear, why not come to dinner at the weekend, Remus and Mad-Eye are coming ??"
Despite the fact that he had spent every waking moment of the past few days hoping desperately that Dumbledore would indeed come to fetch him, Harry felt distinctly awkward as 11 u-y set off down Privet Drive together.

Her face close to his, her tears falling onto his chest, she gasped, "You could do it. You could do it instead of Draco, Severus.
