But it was too late. A rumble, as though of distant thunder, told them that the feast had just ended. From either end of the corridor where they stood came the sound of hundreds of feet climbing the stairs, and the loud, happy talk of well-fed people; next moment, students were crashing into the passage from both ends.
"You will eat in here and then go straight up to your dormitory," she said. "I must also return to the feast."
Ron dived out of sight again as a fresh wave of slugs made their appearance. Hagrid looked outraged.

I'm surprised you haven't already got one - I'll sign one tonight and send it over. Well, good-bye!" And he strode away toward the castle.
