  • ’Harry, Fb sorry!’ cried Neville, his face anguished as his legs continued to flounder.
  • ’Just try and push with your legs —’ He gave another stupendous heave and Nevilles robes tore all along the left seam — the small spun-glass ball dropped from his pocket and, before either of them could catch it, one of Neville’s floundering feet kicked it: it flew some ten feet to their right and smashed on the step beneath them.
