"This is Crabbe, and this is Goyle," he introduces the other two. "And I don't remember if I introduced right - Malfoy, Draco Malfoy."

Permalink

Ron coughs slightly, possibly hiding a snigger.

Permalink

Draco looks at him. "Think my name's funny, do you? No need to ask who you are. My father told me all the Weasleys have red hair, freckles, and more children than they can afford."

Permalink

"That's a rude thing to say," Victor says quietly.

Permalink

He turns to look at Victor again, standing up. "You'll soon find out some wizarding families are much better than others, Evans. You don't want to go making friends with the wrong sort. I can help you there." He holds out his hand to shake Victor's.

Permalink

"Thank you," he says, but he makes no move to shake the offered hand.

Permalink

Dayo grins. "By the way I'm a muggleborn!"

Permalink

Malfoy withdraws his hand and levels his gaze on him. "I see," he says slowly, and turns to look at Victor again. "I'd be careful if I were you, Evans. You don't want to go the same way as your parents. They didn't know what was good for them, either. You hang around with riffraff like muggleborns or the Weasleys and that Hagrid, and it'll rub off on you."

- did this boy just threaten to kill him for hanging around with the wrong people -

For once in his life he is hardly afraid at all. Perhaps this is what being a hero feels like.

"I understand," he says. "I'll remember your advice."

And he steps back out of the compartment.

Permalink

Ron doesn't, though. His face is red. "Say that again."

Permalink

Crabbe and Goyle stand up.

"Oh, you're going to fight us, are you?" Malfoy sneers.

Permalink

"We're in the middle of something," Victor says to Ron. "Now is not a good time for this."

Permalink

Neville squeaks -

Permalink

- drawing Malfoy's attention to him, who hadn't previously noticed him. "Ah, you must be Longbottom. The riffraff is complete."

Permalink

And Dayo can't hold it back anymore, and bursts into giggles.

Permalink

"I think finding Neville's toad is more important than having this conversation," says Victor. "Muninn, could you bring me any toads that are in this compartment? Gently, please, if you find one."

Permalink

Muninn flutters off Victor's shoulder and goes looking for toads. Any toads here?

Permalink

Draco yelps. "Get this bird out of here!" he cries out, and his bodyguards start trying to shoo it.

Permalink

Nope, too much giggle.

Permalink

Pff. Amateurs.

He completes his inspection and returns to Victor's shoulder.

Permalink

"Then we're done here. I apologize for the interruption," he says to Draco.

And now they are all going to proceed to the next compartment, right?

Permalink

Yes they are, while Malfoy shouts imprecations at them as they retreat, and Dayo continues to laugh.

Permalink

He closes the compartment door on Draco's yelling and continues on to the next one.

Permalink

"Had you met him before?"

Permalink

"At Madam Malkin's. He said some things."
