"Come on, Buckbeak," Harry murmured, "come on, we're going to help you. Quietly... quietly..."
There was a swishing noise, and the thud of an axe. The executioner seemed to have swung it into the fence in anger. And then came the howling, and this time they could hear Hagrid's words through his sobs.
"I don't think he could," said Harry. "I told you, every time he got close to letting something slip, he started banging his head against the wall."
"Back to Hagrid's!" Harry said. "It's empty now -- come on!"
Harry stared from his purple-faced uncle to his pale aunt, who was trying to heave Dudley to his feet.
"I can't -"
"Exactly! You wouldn't understand, you might even attack yourself! Don't you see? Professor McGonagall told me what awful things have happened when wizards have meddled with time.... Loads of them ended up killing their past or future selves by mistake!"
"How can you stand this?" he asked Hermione fiercely. "Just standing here and watching it happen?" He hesitated. "I'm going to grab the cloak!"
"Get away from him -- get away -- Scabbers, come here --"

"Vernon tells me you're a wonderful golfer, Mr. Mason.... Do tell me where you bought your dress, Mrs. Mason ......
"Well, well... we shall see, Snape, we shall see.... The boy has undoubtedly been foolish...."
"Must be, it's not a very common name, is it?" said Harry.
"OUT WITH IT, POTTER!" he bellowed. "WHAT DID YOU DO?"
Harry turned to look outside. Something very small and gray was bobbing in and out of sight beyond the glass. He stood up for a better look and saw that it was a tiny owl, carrying a letter that was much too big for it. The owl was so small, in fact, that it kept tumbling over in the air, buffeted this way and that in the train's slipstream. Harry quickly pulled down the window, stretched out his arm, and caught it. It felt like a very fluffy Snitch. He brought it carefully inside. The owl dropped its letter onto Harry's seat and began zooming around their compartment, apparently very pleased with itself for accomplishing its task. Hedwig clicked her beak with a sort of dignified disapproval. Crookshanks sat up in his seat, following the owl with his great yellow eyes. Ron, noticing this, snatched the owl safely out of harm's way.;
