"I've listened already. I've made my decision. Leave me alone!"
"But for heaven's sake--you're wizards! You can do magic! Surely you can sort out--well--anything!"
"Ah yes, of course, I haven't told you," said Dumbledore. "Well, I have lost count of the number of times I have said this in recent years, but we are, once again, one member of staff short. We are here to persuade an old colleague of mine to come out of retirement and return to Hogwarts."
Harry looked around and saw that Mrs. Weasley was not alone, despite the lateness of the hour. A young witch with a pale, heart-shaped face and mousy brown hair was sitting at the table clutching a large mug between her hands.

Wormtail hesitated for a moment, looking as though he might argue, but then turned and headed through a second hidden door. They heard banging and a clinking of glasses.

"You all righ'?" he said gruffly "Yeah," said Harry.

"Who?" said Ron curiously.
"He'll never keep Rita quiet," said Harry. "Not on a story like this."
