Would anyone care to help me carry the flowers from Greenhouse 4 to the Hospital Wing? It's a bit hard on my knees to be making too many trips, and I still must find Greenhouse 12 to get the herbs Poppy needs. That dratted greenhouse, it always finds simply the worst time to hide on me!
Minerva, I do hope you're all right. If there's anything I can do for you, do not hesitate to ask, please.
Hufflepuff Prefects, I would like to see you at the earliest convenience. You as well, Mr. Smith.
I am very releived that everyone has come back mostly safe. This school does not need another death, not now, not ever.
My sympathies go out to you. I understand that I am your head of house, but I think very fondly of you regardless. Your time spent in my greenhouses has caused me to think of you as I would one of my own house, and if there is anything I can do for you, I hope to. My office door is open, I hope you would come to visit.
It is absolutly disgraceful what has happened to Mr. Creevey. I would hope, nay, I EXPECT any Hufflepuffs who may have any information on what has happened to the poor boy to come forward. He is so frightened he will not even speak of who injured him.
I am also sure that you may all have your suspicions as to who may have done this, but do not let these become problematic. Do not let biases or suspicions damage interhouse unity.
As for the Quidditch game, well played, Slytherin. Severus, even you even as much as smirk at me again, I will hex your hair clean. I am very impressed by your abilities, nine goals in such a short game is something to be very proud of. Mr. Smith, scoring seven of them yourself is quite a feat. And Mr. Stebbins, though you did not get any yourself, your assisting was invaluable to the team. Miss Madley, two Quaffles yourself, you did extremely well. Miss Bones, though you were not able to catch the Snitch, you came very close. Your skills are improving each game, I hope you recognise that. Mr. Hopikins, I hope your arm is all right. You seem to have taken quite a beating out there. I'm sure it would have been worse if it had not been for Mr. Finch-Fletchley, you were on top of the game, Justin. Well done. And lastly, Mr. Whitby, Keepers tend to be forgotten about at times, but I saw many of those goals you saved, and you have a lot of talent, especially for someone as young as you. I have a feeling the boys don't let you know that too often, but let me assure you that it is true.
We have not lost all hope for the Cup yet, please don't forget that. I fully expect you to make sure that Professor Snape does not end up with the Cup, so do not, under any circumstances, let me down. Zacharias, I'm talking to you.
Please remember that you have a game coming up this Sunday. I expect all of you to eat well, get eight hours of sleep a night, do all your homework, and stay out of trouble. You must not give any reason for your Quidditch privledges to be taken away, and you must keep in the best of health in order to win this game.
I am quite excited to have that Quidditch Cup in my office all next year, it will look so nice with the sunlight gleaming on it through the glass. Doesn't everyone agree? (Of course, by everyone I am only including Hufflepuffs. I apologise to the rest of you.)
Mr. Smith, I am counting on you. Severus, my condolances.
It is times like these that show how human we really are. Some of you may be asking what to do now, how to fix it all, how to continue on with your life, and how to make it all better. I don't have an answer to that, students. Something that I've learned over the years is that no matter how many times tragedy hits, it never gets any easier. Each time it is new, and each person must discover a new way of their own to continue on. Hogwarts, over the past few years we have lost much. A professor, a classmate, former students, family. But things will get better. There have been many dark times throughout Wizard and Muggle history, and each time it gets better. When it seemed like there was no hope, someone found it. But these people did not just sit back and wait for times to get better, they did something. You too, students, must do all you can. You may not think you can do much, but do not underestimate your abilities. As a very dear friend once said, "Constant Viligance."
Miss Bell, my condolances go out to you and your family.
