"Hermione!" said Lupin, startled. "What's the matter?"
Black stopped dead. It would have been impossible to say which face showed more hatred.
He sighed deeply and looked down at Harry.
"Peter Pettigrew's dead!" said Harry. "He killed him twelve years ago!" He pointed at Black, whose face twitched convulsively.
Harry was suddenly on his feet. Rage such as he had not felt since his last night in Privet Drive was coursing through him. He didn't care that Snape's face had gone rigid, the black eyes flashing dangerously.
Still, Harry didn't speak.
"They can't do this," said Harry. "They can't. Buckbeak isn't dangerous."
A loud snore told him Ron had fallen asleep again.
"Where are you?" Ron kept muttering out of the corner of his mouth. "Are you still there? This feels weird...."
"If she'd just get rid of that cat, I'd speak to her again!" Ron said angrily. "But she's still sticking up for it! It's a maniac, and she won't hear a word against it!"
Something silver-white, something enormous, erupted from the end of his wand. He knew it had shot directly at the dementors but didn't pause to watch; his mind still miraculously clear, he looked ahead -- he was nearly there. He stretched out the hand still grasping his wand and just managed to close his fingers over the small, struggling Snitch.
"You -you've got to hear me out," he croaked. "The rat -- look at the rat --"
"Get off," he murmured, trying to push Crookshanks off him.
"Snape?" said Black harshly, taking his eyes off Scabbers; for the first time in minutes and looking up at Lupin. "What's Snape got to do with it?"
"It's not," said Lupin, still looking at the door in a puzzled way. "The Shrieking Shack was never haunted.... The screams and howls the villagers used to hear were made by me."
But he never finished the question, because what he saw made his voice die in his throat. Lupin was lowering his wand, gazing fixed at Black. The Professor walked to Black's side, seized his hand, pulled him to his feet so that Crookshanks fell to the floor, and embraced Black like a brother.
