When Harry, Ron, and Hermione left the hospital wing at noon the next day, it was to find an almost deserted castle. The sweltering, heat and the end of the exams meant that everyone was taking full advantage of another Hogsmeade visit. Neither Ron nor Hermione felt like going, however, so they and Harry wandered onto the grounds, still talking about the extraordinary events of the previous night and wondering where Sirius and Buckbeak were now. Sitting near the lake, watching the giant squid waving its tentacles lazily above the water, Harry lost the thread of the conversation as he looked across to the opposite bank. The stag had galloped toward him from there just last night¡.
Lupin moved closer to Ron. He seemed to be holding his breath as he gazed intently at Scabbers.
¡°She was right behind us,¡± said Ron, frowning.
¡°Not to worry,¡± grunted Aunt Marge, mopping her face with her napkin. ¡°Must have squeezed it too hard. Did the same thing at Colonel Fubster's the other day. No need to fuss, Petunia, I have a very firm grip.¡¡±
¡°Yeah¡ I bet the Dursleys'd be pleased to let me come¡ especially after what I did to Aunt Marge¡.¡±
Ron gaped at her.
