She turned and walked back into the house and Harry, after a nervous glance at Ron, who nodded encouragingly, followed her.
"If you made a better rat than a human, it's not much to boast about, Peter," said Black harshly. Ron, going still paler with pain, wrenched his broken leg out of Pettigrew's reach. Pettigrew turned on his knees, staggered forward, and seized the hem of Hermione's robes.
"Sirius -- it's me... it's Peter... your friend... you wouldn't --"
"Did anyone see you?"
"Locked in the cupboard under the stairs, and I can't get out of this room -"
"Harry, I can't believe it.... You conjured up a Patronus that drove away all those dementors! That's very, very advanced magic. I knew I could do it this time," said Harry, "because I'd already done it.... Does that make sense?"
"What was that?" said Madam Pomfrey in alarm.
"Say it, sir -"
"It wasn't me - and how did he know?"
"Order of Merlin, Second Class, I'd say. First Class, if I can wangle it!"
"I'm okay," said Harry quickly. "Just thinking about the holidays."
"Exactly! You wouldn't understand, you might even attack yourself! Don't you see? Professor McGonagall told me what awful things have happened when wizards have meddled with time.... Loads of them ended up killing their past or future selves by mistake!"
"That'll be good enough for Dumbledore!" said Harry happily. He looked back at Sirius's letter. "Hang on, there's a RS...."

Harry's mind was buzzing. He was going to leave the Dursleys. He was going to live with Sirius Black, his parents' best friend.... He felt dazed.... What would happen when he told the Dursleys he was going to live with the convict they'd seen on television... !。
