CHAPTER TWENTY-ONE - THE HOUSE-ELF LIBERATION FRONT
"Don't be a prat, Neville, that's illegal," said George. "They wouldn't use the Cruciatus Curse on the champions. I thought it sounded a bit like Percy singing . ..
"An ugly old bat in outsize specs?" Ron muttered under his breath.
They left. Ron stopped feeling his eyebrows and looked across the smoldering wreck of his card castle at Harry.
"The Yule Ball is of course a chance for us all to - er - let our hair down," she said, in a disapproving voice.
Ginny had suddenly stopped smiling.
"Thanks," said Harry, in a flat, distant voice. She left him at the entrance of the tent. Harry went inside.
"Dobby, what're you doing here?" Harry said in amazement. "Dobby has come to work at Hogwarts, sir!" Dobby squealed excitedly. "Professor Dumbledore gave Dobby and Winky jobs, sir!
"Right then, Potter, the first aid tent, please. . ." said Professor McGonagall.
"Wait here," he said to Ron, and he stood up, walked straight up to Parvati, and said, "Parvati? Will you go to the ball with me?"
Angelina, who had been chatting with Alicia Spinnet near the fire, looked over at him.
"All right, Hagrid?" he panted, coming over to talk. "They should be okay now - we put them out with a Sleeping Draft on the way here, thought it might be better for them to wake up in the dark and the quiet - but, like you saw, they weren't happy, not happy at all -"
"Balderdash!" he gasped at the Fat Lady, who was snoozing in her frame in front of the portrait hole.
"Mmm . . . you're not exactly straining yourself, though, are you?" said Hermione, looking at him over the top of her Potions notes. Ron was busy building a card castle out of his Exploding Snap pack - a much more interesting pastime than with Muggle cards, because of the chance that the whole thing would blow up at any second.。
Harry felt oddly separate from everyone around him, whether they were wishing him good luck or hissing "We'll have a box of tissues ready, Potter" as he passed. It was a state of nervousness so advanced that he wondered whether he mightn't just lose his head when they tried to lead him out to his dragon, and start trying to curse everyone in sight.（央视记者 徐海霞）
