"Hey, Granger!" Fred called. "How about you meet me on the escalier for a bit of ping-pong? I'll bring the balls!"
"Which staircase?" Hermione asked, wondering why Fred would ask her such a silly thing—and why everyone around them was laughing.

"Oh, I don't know," Fred said, directly behind her, "I can put any sort of balls into play."
She felt hands cup her breasts and awoke at once, blinking back tears.
"Oh, Fred," she whispered, "I'm sorry things got so serious for you."
