"Naturally," said Madam Rosmerta, with a small laugh. "Never saw one without the other, did you? The number of times I had them in here -- ooh, they used to make me laugh. Quite the double act, Sirius Black and James Potter!"
It had been such a pleasant evening that Harry's good mood couldn't even be spoiled by Malfoy, who shouted through the crowd as they all left the hall, "The dementors send their love, Potter!"
He racked his brains. A really, really happy memory... one that he could turn into a good, strong Patronus...
It was the best practice ever; the team, inspired by the presence of the Firebolt in their midst, performed their best moves faultlessly, and by the time they hit the ground again, Wood didn't have a single criticism to make, which, as George Weasley pointed out, was a first.

Penelope put the Firebolt down again, thanked Harry, and went back to her table.

Hermione threw her book aside. She was still pink in the face, but stood up and faced Ron defiantly.
"Anyway, we know it by heart," said George. "We bequeath it to you. We don't really need it anymore."
"Here you go," said Harry, handing Ron the Firebolt.
"He deserves it," he said suddenly.
"Don't be silly," said Herinione in a panicky voice. "Harry doesn't want to kill anyone, do you, Harry?"
