As Harry entered Flourish and Blotts, the manager came hurrying toward him.
"I'm not delicate!" said Harry crossly.
Fudge strode out of the parlor and Harry stared after him. There was something extremely odd going on.

Hermione was examining her new schedule.
Tears leaked out of the crinkled corners of Hagrid's beetle-black eyes. He grabbed both Harry and Ron and pulled them into a bone-breaking hug.
