"The Chudley Cannons," said Ron, pointing at the orange bedspread, which was emblazoned with two giant black C's and a speeding cannonball. "Ninth in the league."
"We're about to come out!" Hermione breathed.
They climbed two more flights until they reached a door with peeling paint and a small plaque on it, saying RONALD'S ROOM.
"But all my Hogwarts stuff - my wand - my broomstick -"
"I just saved all our lives...," said Harry. "Get behind here -- behind this bush -- I'll explain."
For a fraction of a second he stood, irresolute, in front of Hagrid's door. You must not be seen. But he didn't want to be seen. He wanted to do the seeing.... He had to know...
