But Hagrid wasn't listening; he was opening the cabin door and striding off into the night. Harry hurried to follow and found, to his great surprise, that Hagrid was leading him to the Beauxbatons carriage.

"Why do they have to move in packs?" Harry asked Ron as a dozen or so girls walked past them, sniggering and staring at Harry. "How're you supposed to get one on their own to ask them?"
"D'you - d'you want to go to the ball with me?" said Harry. Why did he have to go red now? Why?

"Harry, you were brilliant!" Hermione said squeakily. There were fingernail marks on her face where she had been clutching it in fear. "You were amazing! You really were!"

"What?" said Harry.
Next, Dumbledore. He too put up a nine. The crowd was cheering harder than ever.
"No," said Ron, "I shouldn't've -"
"Looking good!" Ron yelled, thumping Harry on the back.
