H.P.S.T Chapter 461: Evan’s Trouble

Behind Wood, they also saw Mr. Diggory and his son, who were about to visit the Quidditch field in advance.

Cedric Diggory was an extremely handsome boy of around seventeen. He was Captain and Seeker of the Hufflepuff House Quidditch team at Hogwarts.

One could try to paint it as lightly as possible, but this meant that he was the enemy of the Gryffindor Quidditch team.

Especially considering that they defeated the Gryffindor team in the first Quidditch match of the previous year, which made him somewhat unwelcomed by everyone.

Fred and George did not even say hello, they had not forgiven him until now.

Cedric’s father, Amos Diggory, was a ruddy-faced wizard with a scrubby brown beard. He worked for the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures of the Ministry of Magic and was familiar with Mr. Weasley.

It could be seen that he was extremely proud of his son.

Amos very rudely stared at Harry and Sirius for a long time, especially the scar on Harry’s forehead.

“Cedric has talked about you, of course,” said Amos Diggory. “He told us all about playing against you last year. I said to him, I said… When you get old, that’ll be something to tell your grandchildren. That’s amazing. You beat Harry Potter!”

Defeating Harry Potter, this was indeed a provocative discourse.

Sirius looked at him unfriendly, and Fred and George were both scowling again.

Only Cedric stood there and looked slightly embarrassed.

“Harry fell off his broom, Dad!” he whispered. “I told you, it was an accident…”

“Yeah, but you didn’t fall off, did you?” roared Amos genially, slapping his son on his back. “Always modest, always the gentleman, being able to understand that compassion of the weak is rare virtue, but the best man won, I’m sure Harry would say the same. One falls off his broom, one stays on; you don’t need to be genius to tell which one is the better flier!”

This sentence was really very batty, and almost everyone’s look became ugly.

“Well, I need some water!” Mr. Weasley hastened to take out a large dusty kettle.” Children, can you go back, please? You can take this opportunity to stroll around the camp. Don’t worry about time.”

At Mr. Weasley’s insistence, they set off quickly, and everyone seemed unhappy.

“Unbelievable! That guy actually said that he defeated Harry! If it wasn’t for the Dementors…” Ron complained.

“Dad is always like this, he is too nice!” Fred shook the kettle vigorously.

“If it were me, I would just rush and beat that Amos and give him a lesson!” George said.

The rest did not comment, but did not object to what George had said, even Hermione.

Of course, she looked a bit abnormal today and was no longer as eager to express her views as before.

Since what happened the previous night, she had been trying to avoid Evan all morning and had not spoken to him.

Whenever their eyes occasionally met, she turned red and quickly looked away.

She was just embarrassed; she was just an innocent young girl…

This was the main reason for her abnormality. She was not angry because Evan climbed into her bed. Perhaps, she even felt somewhat good about it!

Even though Evan was as clueless as she was, he knew it was time to take advantage of his unexpected victor. However, he had no chance at all! 

From the morning till now, the two were never alone, not even for a second. They couldn’t say anything in front of so many people.

All in all, they both had always maintained this eccentric relationship.

They crossed the camp and came to the water pump, where a small line had been formed.

Fred and George saw Lee Jordan. He was their friend at school and often got into trouble together.

The three of them gathered and muttered for a while, and then left the team ahead with a smirk and the others didn’t know what they were doing.

“What are they going to do?” Ron said suspiciously, looking at the back of the three of them.

“I don’t know!” Harry shook his head and picked up the kettle that Fred had left.

They lined up, and in front of them, two men were having a heated argument. One of them was a very old wizard who was wearing a long flowery nightgown. The other was clearly a Ministry wizard; he was holding out a pair of pinstriped trousers and almost crying with exasperation.

“Just put them on, Archie, there’s a good chap. You can’t walk around like that. The Muggle at the gate is already getting suspicious…”

“I bought this in a Muggle shop,” said the old wizard stubbornly. “Muggles wear them.”

“Muggle women wear them, Archie, not the men. They wear these.” Said the Ministry wizard, and he brandished the pinstriped trousers.

“I’m not putting them on!” Archie said in indignation. “I want a healthy breeze around my privates, thanks.”

Hearing their conversation, everyone couldn’t help laughing.

Especially Hermione, she was overcome with such a strong fit with giggles at this point that she had to duck out of the queue and only returned when Archie had collected his water and moved away.

A few minutes later, walking more slowly because of the weight of the water, they made their way back through the campsite.

This kettle was very big and very heavy when filled with water.

Without magic, they had great difficulty in carrying it.

Hermione and Ginny couldn’t hold the kettle, and Evan, Harry, and Ron took turns holding it for a while.

Along the way, they saw many Hogwarts students.

Among them, the most impressive one was Cho Chang, who just came over.

Cho was a very pretty girl who played Seeker on the Ravenclaw team.

She waved and smiled at everyone and Harry slopped quite a lot of water down his front as he hurriedly waved back.

“Hello, Hello, I just met Cedric and he said you’re pumping water here!” Cho said happily, her face was red and full of concern and excitement, “Evan, how are you? Since you left school early at the end of last term…”

She specifically asked about the situation of Evan, obviously very concerned.

Evan and Cho had a good relationship. Since they had met for the first time, they became very friendly overtime.

Cho seemed to have a crush on Evan, but well, most of the girls in school had a crush on Evan.

“Thank you, I am fine. There’s nothing wrong!” Evan replied with a smile. “You have been in the summer…”

Before he continued, he saw Hermione appear behind him.

After seeing Cho, Hermione, who had been hiding for a day, chose to approach her, and her face was full of vigilance.

Evan smelled a trace of tension, and the situation seemed to be a bit wrong.

Fortunately, the expected bloodshed did not occur.

After seeing Hermione’s appearance, Cho quickly separated from them, and her small face was still red.

Looking at Cho’s back, Evan was a little relieved, but did not realize that the real trouble awaiting him was behind his back…
