"All in good time," said Dumbledore. "I think there is something trying to get out of your wardrobe."
Without looking at anybody or thanking Ogden, Merope picked up the pot and returned it, hands trembling, to its shelf. She then stood quite still, her back against the wall between the filthy window and the stove, as though she wished for nothing more than to sink into the stone and vanish.
Dumbledore beamed at him, peering over the top of his hall' moon spectacles.
"We believe he has qualities we are looking for."
"But she could do magic!" said Harry impatiently. "She could have got food and everything for herself by magic, couldn't she?"
"You saw Malfoy leaving the shop with a similar package?"
"He might have been put under the Imperius Curse," said Ron reasonably. "You never can tell."

Once they were securely ensconced at the Gryffindor table for dinner, however, he felt safe enough to tell them. Hermione's face became stonier with every word he uttered.
He pulled the old copy of Advanced Potion-Making out of his bag and tapped the cover with his wand, muttering, "Dijjindo!" The cover fell off. He did the same thing with the brand-new book (Hermione looked scandalized). He then swapped the covers, tapped each, and said, "Reparo!"（央视记者 徐海霞）
