Chapter 17: A sluggish memory
There was a long pause.
"Shall we have a nightcap, then?" asked Mr. Weasley loudly, leaping to his feet. "Who wants eggnog?"
"What , and get attacked by another flock of canaries?" muttered Ron.
"Come on, why not?" demanded Harry.
"I thought you said it didn't matter either way?" said Harry, with a bitter laugh. "Not to you anyway."
'Harry, where are you going? 1 demanded Hermione.
'Sir,' said Harry, reminding himself irresistibly of Voldemort, '1 wanted to ask you something.'
"As you might have noticed," said Dumbledore, reseating himself behind his desk, "that memory has been tampered with."
He seized his dragonskin briefcase, stuffed his handkerchief back into his pocket and marched to the dungeon door.
He did not know what made him say it, but Harper did a dou-ble-take; he fumbled the Snitch, let it slip through his fingers, and shot right past it. Harry made a great swipe for the tiny, fluttering ball and caught it.
"I didn't have anything to do with it, all right?"
"Well . . . there is the possibility it was an empty threat." "You're unbelievable, you are," said Harry, shaking his head.
"Oh," he said, drawing up short at the sight of Harry and Hermione.
"Sorry, but that's between us," said Harry. He kept his voice as pleasant as he could, and Scrimgeour's tone, too, was light and friendly as he said, "Oh, of course, if it's a question of confidences, I wouldn't want you to divulge . . . no, no ... and in any case, does it really matter whether you are 'the Chosen One' or not?"
"It is an act that is crucial to success, Draco!" said Snape. "Where do you think I would have been all these years, if I had not known how to act? Now listen to me! You are being incautious, wandering around at night, getting yourself caught, and if you are placing your reliance in assistants like Crabbe and Goyle —",
- "Then, as Charlie isn't coming home, that just leaves Harry and ;|/ Ron in the attic, and if Fleur shares with Ginny —" "— that'll make Ginny's Christmas —" muttered Fred. "— everyone should be comfortable. Well, they'll have a bed, anyway," said Mrs. Weasley, sounding slightly harassed.？
Harry lay awake for a very long time in the darkness. He did not want to lose the upcoming match; not only was it his first as Cap-tain, but he was determined to beat Draco Malfoy at Quidditch even if he could not yet prove his suspicions about him. Yet if Ron played as he had done in the last few practices, their chances of winning were very slim. . . .（央视记者 徐海霞）
