"We weren't talking." Harry finished the sentence for him. "Yeah, but blackmail..."
Karkaroff drew a deep breath.
She waved her wand and the lamps went out. The fire was the only source of light now.
"But we're not sure if that's true," said Hermione quickly.
"Don't be stupid," Hermione snapped, starting to pound up her beetles again. "No, it's just. . . how did she know Viktor asked me to visit him over the summer?"
There was a murmur around the benches. Some of the wizards and witches were surveying Karkaroff with interest, others with pronounced mistrust. Then Harry heard, quite distinctly, from Dumbledores other side, a familiar, growling voice saying, "Filth."
"He's worried about you!" said Hermione sharply. "Just like Moody and Hagrid! So listen to them!"
Sirius led them to the very foot of the mountain, where the ground was covered with boulders and rocks. It was easy for him, with his four paws, but Harry, Ron, and Hermione were soon out of breath. They followed Sirius higher, up onto the mountain itself. For nearly half an hour they climbed a steep, winding, and stony path, following Sirius's wagging tail, sweating in the sun, the shoulder straps of Harry's bag cutting into his shoulders.
"You are not Sirius's only correspondent," said Dumbledore. "I have also been in contact with him ever since he left Hogwarts last year. It was I who suggested the mountainside cave as the safest place for him to stay."
Sirius held up his fingers and began ticking off names.
"You know - you know the trial you found me in? The one with Crouch's son? Well....were they talking about Neville's parents?"
"Yeah, someone could've - could've pulled him onto a broom and flown off with him, couldn't they?" said Ron quickly, looking hopefully at Moody as if he too wanted to be told he had the makings of an Auror.
"Hermione, will you give it a rest with the elf!" said Ron.
He grinned up at Harry, but Harry returned the grin only reluctantly.
"Begging your pardon, miss," said the house-elf, bowing deeply again, "but house-elves has no right to be unhappy when there is work to be done and masters to be served."
