"It's what my mum calls them," Ron muttered, his ears going red.
"Did you find him?" Harry asked without preamble. "Mr. Crouch?"
"What've they done to it?" Cedric said indignantly, stopping dead.
"What d'you think, Sirius?" Harry said loudly, and Ron and Hermione stopped bickering to listen.
"Hermy-own-ninny talks about you very often," said Krum, looking suspiciously at Harry.
He handed Harry the empty napkin and flask and went to pat Buckbeak good-bye. "I'll walk to the edge of the village with you," said Sirius, "see if I can scrounge another paper."

He looked down into it expecting to see the stone bottom of the basin - and saw instead an enormous room below the surface of the mysterious substance, a room into which he seemed to be looking through a circular window in the ceiling.
