Harry rushed over to Hermione.
" Did I just see Malfoy and his mother leave Madame Malkins?"
" You did " replied Hermione.
" What did he say to you?"
" More than enough " replied Hermione. " Harry please not in present company."
" Who? Victor. Sure he hates Malfoy too."
Hermione scowled. " Did it occur to you Harry. That maybe we could spend one day without giving out about Draco Malfoy and do something resourceful and interesting."
Harry sighed. " Yeah whatever."
" I think it's rather exciting pondering on the evil doings of the Malfoy family."
Harry turned around to see Ginny standing there.
Hermione laughed. " Dont be so childish Ginny."
" I'm not being childish. I'm just being interesting." She smiled at Harry who laughed.
Hermione appeared to be hurt by the comment and declined to answer.
" Ah...dont take it like that Hermione. Ginny only means well."
" Sure " said Ginny.
" Herminee " said Victor. " Vare are vee going now?"
" The Leaky Cauldron " replied Ginny. " Mum wants everyone to meet there , if that's okay " added Ginny with a twinkle in her eye.
" It is " replied Victor smiling. He grinned at Ginny who blushed. Harry felt his hands tighten and his wish to strangle Krum increased.
Ginny joined Hermione over at a window and Krum turned to Harry.
" Harry. Zis Ginny is she dating anyvone?"
Harry's throat tightened. " No , I dont think so."
" Oh...thank you..."
" Why Victor?"
" Vell she is a very beautiful girl and so interesting."
" She's fourteen Victor."
" Harry I am an International seeker. I can have who I vant."
" What about Hermione?"
" You misunderstood me Harry. Ven did I say I vanted to date this Ginny?"
" It's a little obvious."
" I think I am making you jealous Harry. You have feelings for zis Ginny."
Krum laughed. " Just as Weasley denies his feelings for Heminee , you do so with Ginny. It is no wonder you boys have zo much difficutly with girls. I think I like this Ginny very much. She is different."
Ginny ran over to Victor and pulled him over to the window. " Look Victor , you're picture is on this broom leaflet."
Victor smiled and took Ginny by the hand. " Thank you Ginny " he replied and he grinned at Harry.
