Merope was so white Harry felt sure she was going to faint.
The squat, bandy-legged man with long, straggly, ginger hair jumped and dropped an ancient suitcase, which burst open, releas-ing what looked like the entire contents of a junk shop window.
"Or you," said Hermione, looking troubled.
"Good afternoon," said Dumbledore, holding out his hand. Mrs. Cole simply gaped.
"Ooooh!" gasped Hermione, looking up at once. "Good luck! We'll wait up, we want to hear what he teaches you!"
