"Right," said Harry coolly, turning back to his ginger roots. "I'll bear that in mind if I ever get the urge to go in there."
"It's my business if you're blackmailing someone," said Ron. "George's right, you could end up in serious trouble for that."
The dementors placed each of the four people in the four chairs with chained arms that now stood on the dungeon floor. There was a thickset man who stared blankly up at Crouch; a thinner and more nervous-looking man, whose eyes were darting around the crowd; a woman with thick, shining dark hair and heavily hooded eyes, who was sitting in the chained chair as though it were a throne; and a boy in his late teens, who looked nothing short of petrified. He was shivering, his straw-colored hair all over his face, his freckled skin milk-white. The wispy little witch beside Crouch began to rock backward and forward in her seat, whimpering into her handkerchief.
For a moment, the deadened look in Sirius's eyes became more pronounced than ever, as though shutters had closed behind them.
"It's what my mum calls them," Ron muttered, his ears going red.
"I'm your son!" he screamed up at Crouch. "I'm your son!"
"But why. Bertha," said Dumbledore sadly, looking up at the now silently revolving girl, "why did you have to follow him in the first place?"
Percy's really ambitious, you know. ..."
"I want to know how she's listening into private conversations when she's supposed to be banned from the grounds!" said Hermione angrily.
Ron nudged Harry and passed him the Daily Prophets. There were two: The first bore the headline Mystery Illness ofBartemius Crouch, the second, Ministry Witch Still Missing-Minister of Magic Now Personally Involved.
"Did you find him?" Harry asked without preamble. "Mr. Crouch?"
"Crouch?" said Hagrid blankly.
"I think. Harry, it is time to return to my office," said a quiet voice in Harrys ear.
He stood back to let them into his empty classroom, limped in after them, and closed the door.
Dumbledore shook his head. "Curiosity is not a sin," he said. "But we should exercise caution with our curiosity. . . yes, indeed ..."
He yawned widely, so that his scars stretched, and his lopsided mouth revealed a number of missing teeth. Then he said, "Now, Dumbledore's told me you three fancy yourselves as investigators, but there's nothing you can do for Crouch. The Ministry'll be looking for him now, Dumbledore's notified them. Potter, you just keep your mind on the third task."
