Riddle nodded, not taking his eyes off Harry's face.

"He's not as gone as you might think!" Harry retorted. He was speaking at random, wanting to scare Riddle, wishing rather than believing it to be true
"Proud?" said Harry. "Are you crazy? All those times I could've died, and I didn't manage it? They'll be furious ......
Ron rubbed his eyes, frowning through the moonlight. And then he understood, too.
Harry jabbed him in the back with his wand. Lockhart slid his legs into the pipe.

The door was locked, and I was crying, and then I heard somebody come in. They said something funny. A different language, I think it must have been.

They walked behind them for about twenty minutes, not speaking, listening hard for noises other than breaking twigs and rustling leaves. Then, when the trees had become thicker than ever, so that the stars overhead were no longer visible, and Harry's wand shone alone in the sea of dark, they saw their spider guides leaving the path.
