"Package for you." A young man, around their age, tossed him a box. "Already paid in time spent in this tent and the number of trees we're going to save by cutting over a hundred pages out of this book."

"…what?" Harry blinked.

"Oh, one more thing." He looked over his sunglasses. "I suggest you try a school for the last one. Enough trauma there to cause all sorts of lasting memories. I'm off." The forest floor seemed to blur for a moment, then surge upward, taking the stranger with it.

Hermione took the box and carefully opened it after casting a few detection charms. "…Harry? You just had a horcrux hand delivered to you." She pulled out Hufflepuff's cup.
