"Pitiful," said Fred. "I bet I can get mine beyond that stump."
The moment they disappeared, the tree began to move again. Seconds later, they heard footsteps quite close by. Dumbledore, Macnair, Fudge, and the old Committee member were making their way up to the castle.
"Yeah, I mean it!" said Harry.
"Well... your parents appointed me your guardian," said Black stiffly. "If anything happened to them..."
There was a knock on the door. Harry hastily stuffed the Marauder's Map and the Invisibility Cloak into his pocket.
Harry jumped to his feet just as a jeering voice floated across the lawn.
With every ounce of strength he could muster, Harry raised his head a few inches and saw an animal amid the light, galloping away across the lake....

Snape collided with Lupin, Pettigrew, and Ron, who had stopped abruptly. Black froze. He flung out one arm to make Harry and Hermione stop.
Just then, the front door slammed.
"But you passed your exam with three hundred and twenty percent!" said Ron.
Buckbeak soared straight into the dark air. Harry gripped his flanks with his knees, feeling the great wings rising powerfully beneath them. Hermione was holding Harry very tight around the waist; he could hear her muttering, "Oh, no -- I don't like this oh, I really don't like this --"？
