It was as though the last few weeks had never happened - as though Harry were meeting Ron for the first time, right after he'd been made champion.
"I didn't cheat," said Harry sharply. "It was - a sort of accident that I found out."
She turned left at the bottom of the staircase and hurried toward the door through which Cedric Diggory had gone the night after the Goblet of Fire had regurgitated his and Harry's names. Harry had never been through here before. He and Ron followed Hermione down a flight of stone steps, but instead of ending up in a gloomy underground passage like the one that led to Snape's dungeon, they found themselves in a broad stone corridor, brightly lit with torches, and decorated with cheerful paintings that were mainly of food.
Harry has at last found love at Hogwarts. His close friend, Colin Creevey, says that Harry is rarely seen out of the company of one Hermione Granger, a stunningly pretty Muggle-born girl who, like Harry, is one of the top students in the school.
So Harry put on his Invisibility Cloak in the dormitory, went back downstairs, and together he and Hermione set off for Hogsmeade.
"Why weren't you two at dinner?" she said, coming over to join them.

"Very good indeed!" Bagman was shouting. "And now the marks from the judges!"
I suppose I get my strength from my parents. I know they'd be very proud of me if they could see me now. . . . Yes, sometimes at night I still cry about them, I'm not ashamed to admit it. . . . I know nothing will hurt me during the tournament, because they're watching over me. . .
Harry's insides seemed to curl up and shrivel.
"So. . . got any ideas how you're going to get past your dragon yet?" said Moody.
