He could feet them watching him, hear their rattling breath like an evil wind around him. The nearest dementor seemed to be considering him. Then it raised both its rotting hands -- and lowered its hood.
"Please," Harry whispered frantically, "please be quiet. If the Dursleys hear anything, if they know you're here -"
What wouldn't he give now for a message from Hogwarts? From any witch or wizard? He'd almost be glad of a sight of his archenemy, Draco Malfoy, just to be sure it hadn't all been a dream ....
And then he felt solid ground beneath his feet, and everything came into focus again --
"What terrible things?" said Harry at once. "Who's plotting them?"
There was a swishing noise, and the thud of an axe. The executioner seemed to have swung it into the fence in anger. And then came the howling, and this time they could hear Hagrid's words through his sobs.
