A porters cap pulled low over his mismatched eyes, Moody came limping through the archway pushing a trolley loaded with their trunks.

All OK, he muttered to Mrs. Weasley and Tonks, dont think we were followed

Seconds later, Mr. Weasley emerged on to the platform with Ron and Hermione. They had almost unloaded Moodys luggage trolley when Fred, George and Ginny turned up with Lupin.

No trouble? growled Moody.

Nothing, said Lupin.

Ill still be reporting Sturgis to Dumbledore, said Moody, thats the second time hes not turned up in a week. Getting as unreliable as Mundungus.

Well, look after yourselves, said Lupin, shaking hands all round. He reached Harry last and gave him a clap on the shoulder. You too, Harry. Be careful.

Yeah, keep your head down and your eyes peeled, said Moody, shaking Harrys hand too. And dont forget, all of youcareful what you put in writing. If in doubt, dont put it in a letter at all.

Its been great meeting all of you, said Tonks, hugging Hermione and Ginny. Well see you soon, I expect.

A warning whistle sounded; the students still on the platform started hurrying on to the train.

Quick, quick, said Mrs. Weasley distractedly, hugging them at random and catching Harry twice. Write be good if youve forgotten anything well send it on on to the train, now, hurry

For one brief moment, the great black dog reared on to its hind legs and placed its front paws on Harrys shoulders, but Mrs. Weasley shoved Harry away towards the train door, hissing, For heavens sake, act more like a dog, Sirius!

See you! Harry called out of the open window as the train began to move, while Ron, Hermione and Ginny waved beside him. The figures of Tonks, Lupin, Moody and Mr. and Mrs. Weasley shrank rapidly but the black dog was bounding alongside the window, wagging its tail; blurred people on the platform were laughing to see it chasing the train, then they rounded a bend, and Sirius was gone.

He shouldnt have come with us, said Hermione in a worried voice.

Oh, lighten up, said Ron, he hasnt seen daylight for months, poor bloke.

Well, said Fred, clapping his hands together, cant stand around chatting all day, weve got business to discuss with Lee. See you later, and he and George disappeared down the corridor to the right.

The train was gathering still more speed, so that the houses outside the window flashed past, and they swayed where they stood.

Shall we go and find a compartment, then? Harry asked.

Ron and Hermione exchanged looks.

Er, said Ron.

WerewellRon and I are supposed to go into the prefect carriage, Hermione said awkwardly.

  4. 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.

Mrs. Blacks portrait was howling with rage but nobody was bothering to close the curtains over her; all the noise in the hall was bound to rouse her again, anyway. | Ron wasnt looking at Harry; he seemed to have become intensely interested in the fingernails on his left hand.
