A jet of silver light hit Malfoy in the stomach and he doubled up, wheezing.

I said disarm only! Lockhart shouted in alarm over the heads of the battling crowd, as Malfoy sank to his knees; Harry had hit him with a Tickling Charm, and he could barely move for laughing. Harry hung back, with a vague feeling it would be unsporting to bewitch Malfoy while he was on the floor, but this was a mistake; gasping for breath, Malfoy pointed his wand at Harrys knees, choked, Tarantallegra! and the next second Harrys legs began to jerk around out of his control in a kind of quickstep.

Stop! Stop! screamed Lockhart, but Snape took charge. Finite Incantatem! he shouted; Harrys feet stopped dancing, Malfoy stopped laughing, and they were able to look up.

A haze of greenish smoke was hovering over the scene. Both Neville and Justin were lying on the floor, panting; Ron was holding up an ashen faced Seamus, apologizing for whatever his broken wand had done; but Hermione and Millicent Bulstrode were still moving; Millicent had Hermione in a headlock and Hermione was whimpering in pain; both their wands lay forgotten on the floor. Harry leapt forward and pulled Millicent off. It was difficult: She was a lot bigger than he was.

Dear, dear, said Lockhart, skittering through the crowd, looking at the aftermath of the duels. Up you go, Macmillan Careful there, Miss Fawcett Pinch it hard, itll stop bleeding in a second, Boot

I think Id better teach you how to block unfriendly spells, said Lockhart, standing flustered in the midst of the hall. He glanced at Snape, whose black eyes glinted, and looked quickly away. Lets have a volunteer pairLongbottom and Finch-Fletchley, how about you

A bad idea, Professor Lockhart, said Snape, gliding over like a large and malevolent bat. Longbottom causes devastation with the simplest spells. Well be sending whats left of Finch-Fletchley up to the hospital wing in a matchbox. Nevilles round, pink face went pinker. How about Malfoy and Potter? said Snape with a twisted smile.

Excellent idea! said Lockhart, gesturing Harry and Malfoy into the middle of the hall as the crowd backed away to give them room.

Now, Harry, said Lockhart. When Draco points his wand at you, you do this.

He raised his own wand, attempted a complicated sort of wiggling action, and dropped it. Snape smirked as Lockhart quickly picked it up, saying, Whoopsmy wand is a little overexcited

Snape moved closer to Malfoy, bent down, and whispered something in his ear. Malfoy smirked, too. Harry looked up nervously at Lockhart and said, Professor, could you show me that blocking thing again?

Scared? muttered Malfoy, so that Lockhart couldnt hear him.

You wish, said Harry out of the corner of his mouth.

Lockhart cuffed Harry merrily on the shoulder. Just do what I did, Harry!

What, drop my wand?


  1. A bright silver light appeared right ahead of him, moving through the trees. Whatever the source, it was moving soundlessly. The light seemed simply to drift toward him.
  2. A dark figure came bustling toward them, and Harry saw a glint of silver to the light of their wands. They had found Gryffindors sword.
  3. A door to his left flew open and Professor McGonagall emerged from her office looking grim and slightly harassed.
  4. Aircraft and some facts about the flight
  5. And Harry fell again through the silver surface, landing this time right in front of a man he recognized at once.
  6. And then a deep, booming gong sounded somewhere beyond the woods, and at once, green and red lanterns blazed into life in the trees, lighting a path to the field.
  7. And then the tunnel began to rise; moments later it twisted, and Crookshanks had gone. Instead, Harry could see a patch of dim light through a small opening.
  8. As Harry stepped down, a drawling, delighted voice sounded in his ear.
  9. B. Read the text and match the highlighted words to their definitions.
  10. Background Lighting tab -
  11. Bagman looked slightly perturbed.

Malfoy and some of the other Slytherins cheered. Hermione was dancing on tiptoes. Do you think hes all right? she squealed through her fingers. | But Lockhart wasnt listening.
