Chapter 2-7 Mudbloods an Murmurs
- Harry leaves for Quidditch practice. While
he is walking, he is approached by Colin Creevy who shows him the moving
picture of him and Lockhart. He keeps asking Harry all kind of questions
about Quidditch, walking after Harry untill Harry finally manages to
shake him off when he reaches the changing rooms. All the players are
present; Katie Bell, Fred and George Weasley, Oliver Wood, Alicia Spinnet and Angelina Johnson. Wood gives
them a long lecture about his new training program. After what seemed
like ages they finally go onto the field.
- Marcus Flint and his Slytherins
team arrives. He has a personal note from Professor Snape, allowing
them to train their new Seeker Draco Malfoy!
His father, Lucius Malfoy 'bought' his son's place
in the team by giving all of them a new Nimbus Two Thousand and One
brooms. Malfoy starts making fun of Harry's Nimbus Two Thousand and George
and Fred's Cleansweep Fives. Ron
and Hermione come to see what is happening.
They start arguing. Malfoy calls Hermione a Mudblood, one of the worst things to call
a witch or wizard. They begin to fight, but Ron's wand backfires on
himself when trying to Hex Malfoy.
They take him to Hagrid.
- Ron belches slugs. When they reach Hagrid's cabin, Professor Lockhart
is just leaving. Hagrid thinks there's not much more they can do for
Ron other than to wait for the the vomiting it to stop by itself. He
tells them that Lockhart was giving him advice on how to get kelpies
out of a well. Hagrid offers them some treacle
fudge while they conversate about Lockhart, Malfoy and what Malfoy
said. Next he shows them pumpkins he's growing for Halloween, a bit
big to be 'normal'. Hermione supposes Hagrid used an Engorgement
Charm, although he is not allowed to use magic anymore.
- Going back to the castle, Harry and Ron are told they will do detention
at eight o'clock in the evening. Ron will polish the silver in the trophy
room with Mr. Filch and Harry will help Professor Lockhart answer his
- At eight he goes to his Lockhart's office and he begins addressing
envelopes for fans like Gladys Gudgeon and Veronica Smethley. Harry suddenly
hears a voice saying things like "come.., let me rip you.. let me tear
you.. let me kill you".
- He finally is able to go back to Gryffindor tower. Half an hour later,
Ron gets back with a sour arm from pollishing a Quidditch cup. He also
had another slug attack all over a Special Award
for Services to the School. Harry tells Ron about the voice he heard.
