"Rubbish!" snarled Filch. "He saw my Kwikspell letter!"
It was Mr. Malfoy. He stood with his hand on Draco's shoulder, sneering in just the same way.
Ron was having far worse problems. He had patched up his wand with some borrowed Spellotape, but it seemed to be damaged beyond repair. It kept crackling and sparking at odd moments, and every time Ron tried to transfigure his beetle it engulfed him in thick gray smoke that smelled of rotten eggs.
