"The Muggle Morfin attacked? The man on the horse?"
"That old man was — ?"

"But isn't it... sir, isn't it the same ring Marvolo Gaunt showed Ogden?"
The man in rags was now advancing on Ogden, knife in one hand, wand in the other.

The whole class seemed to sit up a little straighter. Now all Harry could see of Malfoy was the back of his sleek blond head, because he was at last giving Slughorn his full and undivided attention.
"What are you two doing?" demanded Ron, reappearing in the doorway to the Great Hall and looking suspicious.
