"Oh, get out of the way, Percy," said Fred. "Harry's in a hurry."
still, heart-shaped confetti was falling from the pale blue ceiling. Harry went over to the Gryffindor table, where Ron was sitting looking sickened, and Hermione seemed to have been overcome with giggles.
"What's that?" said Ron and Harry together.
