“Maybe, we should hurry up, I suspect we’re going to be late.”
“The agreed time is at twelve noon.”
Hiking to Hogsmeade in the wind, rain and snow is anything but a pleasant experience. They had to bend over and walk slowly against the cold, wind and snow. Even though they had wrapped themselves in thick scarves, their exposed skin was still painfully cold.
Even Harry himself admitted that it must be more comfortable to stay in the warm common room in this terrible weather than it is now. Unfortunately, they have no choice now, and it is obviously not a good choice to turn around and return to school.
“It would be great if I could apparate directly to Hogsmeade village.” Ron pulled the scarf around his neck, looked at the Hogwarts students who were headed against the wind, and complained softly, “I Now I feel that my cheeks have been frozen and I have lost consciousness.”
“Don’t complain, we can start learning Apparation this semester.” Hermione seemed to think of something, and suddenly turned to the person next to her and said, “Harry, I don’t remember you being old enough.”
“My birthday is at the end of July.” Harry said a little gloomily, “Maybe I won’t be able to take the Apparition exam until next semester.”
“I think you should give Apparation to the Society first, just in case.” Hermione suggested seriously, “And Ron, you are the same, it’s best to pass it once.”
“Hermione, do you know something?” Harry suddenly asked, “Did Albert tell you anything?”
“No.” Hermione shook her head and said, “But do you remember? He prophesied.”
“Prophecy? What prophecy?” Ron asked loudly.

“The real period of turmoil…is coming.” Hermione glanced at Ron, and reminded in a low voice, “According to Albert’s prediction, this is not a period of turmoil, so what do you think is the period of turmoil?” Real turmoil?”
“The situation is even worse than it is now.” Harry really couldn’t imagine what it was like.
“He also reminded other Muggle wizards that before the turbulent times came, they had better learn something useful. That’s why the “Guide to Self-Defense” was born.” Hermione told the two partners The content I deduced, “I think he wants to tell us that Muggle wizards will be in big trouble after the real turbulent period. I suspect that the mysterious man will completely control the Ministry of Magic and persecute Muggle wizards.”
“But, as long as Dumbledore is still around, it is almost impossible for Voldemort to control the Ministry of Magic.” Harry felt that this possibility was not high. He had confidence in Dumbledore, but he didn’t even have Fudge’s soft bones Submit to Voldemort, let alone Scrimgeour.
“Yes, I thought so too.” Hermione’s voice was so low that only a few people around could barely hear her clearly: “Do you still remember the injury on Dumbledore’s hand? It was probably caused by someone A very terrible curse, I doubt Dumbledore will…”
For a while, the three of them were silent.
This is undoubtedly a very serious topic.
Perhaps, without Albert’s prophecy, they would not have thought about it, but everything now points to one thing, Dumbledore is likely to gradually lose the power to control the mysterious man, or leave them forever.
Without Dumbledore’s deterrence, it would not be surprising for the mysterious man to do anything. Perhaps at that time, the real turbulent period will come.
Harry had actually had a similar idea, but he was quickly suppressed by him. At least, he didn’t think the situation would be that bad, after all, Dumbledore was omnipotent in Harry’s heart.
“I remember that Fred and George seemed to be led by Albert to practice Apparition.” Ron seemed to sense the oppressive atmosphere around him, and picked up a topic at random, “They all passed the Apparation test with ease. , and now being led by Albert to make a lot of money, Dad said that they are becoming the richest people in the family.” New
Ron was very envious of the twins’ good fortune, even though Fred and George were hiding now, they were still doing owl mail order and continuing to make a lot of money.
Feeling that the surrounding atmosphere is still very stiff, Ron changed the subject again: “The two **** also told me that if they can’t find a job in the future, they will go to the store to help. What are you going to do in the future?”
“Entering the Ministry of Magic, I want to help the house-elves change their current predicament.” Hermione said without thinking, “Wizards shouldn’t treat house-elves like that.”
“I think it’s going to be hard to do. The probability of Percy becoming the Minister of Magic is higher than that.” Ron ignored Hermione’s dissatisfied gaze and continued to ask, “Harry, what about you? Are you going to become an Auror?”
Say something, it’s really a good distraction, and avoid the process of walking to Hogsmeade village too much.
“Well, if possible, I really want to become an Auror, but the difficulty seems to be higher than I expected, and…”
After learning the prophecy between himself and the mysterious man from Dumbledore at the end of last semester, Harry put down a lot of things and didn’t care about his future employment.
The first thing he should consider now is how to defeat the mysterious man, or be defeated by the mysterious man. If he fails, there is no point in thinking about the future.
“It always feels like you all have something on your mind.” Ron couldn’t help complaining, and he changed the subject again, talking about another thing: “By the way, I heard that Fred and George took Zuko The joke shop in the store has become their branch? Maybe, we will see later, they seem to have a large-scale discount today.”
Looking at the two people who were silent, Ron couldn’t help but sighed, and comforted him: “Actually, you don’t need to worry too much. Even if something happened, wouldn’t there be Dumbledore? Isn’t there still Abel Special? I don’t believe they didn’t make any preparations, and those things are simply not our turn to worry.”
After they arrived at Hogsmeade Village, they were shocked by the changes in Zuko’s joke shop. This shop, which is popular with Hogwarts students, has not only been renovated, There is a funny statue.
It is an upgraded version of the pink toad statue.
Umbridge sitting on the toad not only has rough skin, but also has pimples. It looks like she has taken a compound potion with toad skin scraps added. There is also a pink toad fixed on her head. What was amazing was that the three toads were still lined up and croaking.
“I knew, they were the ones who made that statue back then.” Hermione looked at the toad statue in front of her, and said in a low voice to Harry and Ron next to her.
The statue of Umbridge undoubtedly helped Zuko’s joke shop attract a lot of Hogwarts students. Everyone is pointing at the toad statue, and there are people taking pictures with the statue, and the one who took the picture of them is impressively Lee Jordan.
“What the **** are you doing!”
The three walked over and asked Lee Jordan who was posing for other students.
“For a group photo, you can get one for two sips, or buy ten Galleons for free in the store.” Lee Jordan smiled and pointed to the statue in front of him and asked, “How about it, do you want one?”
Ron couldn’t help complaining: “You are stealing money!”
“It’s enough for a few people to take a photo together, and then share the cost together. In fact, it won’t cost much at all. It’s not easy to find someone to take pictures for you now, and the film itself is more expensive than you think. If you are not doing it Don’t expect such a cheap promotion.” Lee Jordan said to the three, “If you want to take pictures, go there and line up!”
“I think it’s better to forget it!”
Ron pulled Harry’s shoulders, motioned him to watch the crowded crowd in the joke shop, and said, “Let’s go to the Three Broomsticks for a drink first, to warm up, and come back when there are fewer people here.” /
Seeing the crowded crowd through the floor-to-ceiling windows, Harry nodded in agreement with Ron’s suggestion, or did the business first, and asked, “Are Fred and George here too?”
“They are helping out in the shop, um, you should go in and have a look too, we have made some good things recently, you will definitely like them.” After finishing speaking, Lee Jordan got busy with his own affairs up.
The three looked at each other and went directly to the Three Broomsticks bar. Where did I meet Cedric and Qiu Zhang, who were chatting and laughing in whispers.
Harry looked away from the two of them, and when he was about to find another table, Hermione stopped him.
Harry followed Hermione’s fingers and saw Cedric waving at them. He hesitated for a moment, then walked over.
Ron and Hermione looked at each other, and both could see the worry in their eyes. They knew that Harry was secretly in love with Qiu Zhang.
“I’m going to buy butter beer.”
As Ron said, he walked towards the bar. Hermione glanced at the charming and charming Mrs. Rosmerta, and then looked at Ron’s slightly hurried back. Ke that table went.
“I heard that you were in trouble a while ago?”
When Harry faced Cedric now, he no longer felt the jealousy he used to, and when he watched Qiu Zhang, he didn’t have the same emotion as before.
“I met a group of dark wizards and suffered a bit.” Cedric said lightly.
“You should pay attention to safety, and this matter and Vol…”
Hermione quickly interrupted Harry with a short cough, and helped her continue, “Is it related to the mysterious man?”
“About, according to Albert’s prophecy, turbulent times are coming, and he thinks we’d better stick together and spend the most difficult years together.” Cedric explained in a low voice.
“But this is…”
“We reorganized the Defense Association. When I was helping to recruit people, I encountered trouble. Maybe you have heard that the group of Death Eaters are using the Imperius Curse on wizards everywhere, so I happened to be the one who encountered them. When they arrived, they seemed to want to find out the whereabouts of Albert, so they caught me and tried to force some information from me.” Cedric briefly explained the main reason for his troubles.
“So, you quit your job at the Ministry of Magic?”
Ron appeared at the wooden table with three glasses of butterbeer in his arms, distributed the warmed butterbeer to Harry and Hermione, and sat down beside Harry.
“Albert saved me, so I am not suitable to stay in the Ministry of Magic now, otherwise I will cause more trouble.” Cedric shrugged helplessly and explained, “In short, the situation is worse than you think It’s going to be worse, even worse than the last wizarding war.”
“What kind of organization is the Defense Association?” Hermione was a little curious about this, “Is it the same as the DA party in school?”
“It is indeed similar to the previous DA. It will teach everyone the knowledge of defense against black arts, so that they will not be helpless when they encounter danger.”
“But, isn’t the Ministry of Magic also popularizing the knowledge of defense against the dark arts?” Hermione felt that the “Defense Association” organized by Albert was not just for teaching everyone the knowledge of defense against the dark arts. More important reasons.
“That’s different. The Defense Against the Dark Arts knowledge learned by Hogwarts students is actually very general. The Defense Association will teach you more advanced Defense Against the Dark Arts knowledge.” Cedric explained: “Moreover, the organization The members will keep in touch with each other and help each other. When they encounter trouble, at least they will not be helpless. If they are targeted by Death Eaters, we will also help hide them. You can also think that this is an anti-mysterious person Mutual aid organizations.”
“After all, the Ministry of Magic is also being involved in all its energies. If we want to protect our lives in the next turbulent period, we need to unite everyone.”
“So, this is the main reason why you are willing to go to Hogwarts to teach everyone Defense Against the Dark Arts?” Hermione stared at Cedric and asked, “You want Hogwarts students to join you.”
“Yes, Hogwarts graduates are our goals, if they are willing to join us.” Cedric directly admitted this matter, “However, the current students’ defense against the dark arts are relatively average , Albert feels that their level should be raised so that they have enough strength to cope with the next changes and protect the lives of themselves and their families.”
“I think what Albert said is very reasonable. Now the entire magic world is in panic, and Scrimgeour doesn’t know how long he can support it.” Cedric reminded without hesitation, “Albert thinks Scrimgeour has become a thorn in the side and a thorn in the flesh of the mysterious man, maybe one day the mysterious man finds an opportunity, and Scrimgeour will die in the line of duty.”
Harry, Ron, and Hermione couldn’t help but widen their eyes ~IndoMTL.com~ Don’t look at me like that, these are Albert’s exact words. Scrimgeour killed so many people, there must be many people who want to kill him. Cedric looked around and said in a low voice, “I suspect that Scrimgeour actually knew that he might be killed in the end, so he was so cruel to those dark wizards.” “
“You mean Albert told Scrimgeour about it, but why did he…”
“Why not hide?” Cedric shook his head and said, “Do you think he can drop everything and hide by himself?”
All three were silent.
At this moment, there was a sudden scream from outside, which attracted the attention of all the customers in the bar.
