Chapter 5-2 A Peck of Owls

  • Mrs. Figg tells Harry that Mundungus Fletcher had left to see someone about a batch of Cauldrons that fell off the back of a broom and that it's just lucky she put Mr. Tibbles on the case. She turns out to be a Squib. It was Mundungus Fletcher who disapparated from the front of Harry's house. He has been following Harry.
  • They walk back home taking Dudley. While walking, Mrs. Figg tells Harry to keep his wand out, never minding the Statute of Secrecy now. This is exactly what Dumbledore was afraid of with the Reasonable Restriction of Underage Sorcery. She sees something on the end of the street but it's just Mr. Prentice.
  • There's a crack and Mundungus Fletcher appears by Apparation, holding an Invisibility Cloak. He should have been watching Harry when he left to buy stolen cauldrons. Fletcher says someone should tell Dumbledore and Mrs. Figg says 'yes - they - have' and that it better be him so he can tell why he wasn't there to help. Then Fletcher Disapparates
  • They reach the Dursley's house and Mrs. Figg leaves. Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon are furious.
  • At that moment an owl flies in bringing Harry a letter from the Ministry of Magic. The letter indicates Harry performed a Patronus Charm in a Muggle-inhabited area and in the presence of a Muggle. This is a breach of the Decree for the Restricion of Underage Wizardry and therefore he is expelled from Hogwarts. As Harry already has received an official warning for a previous offence under Section 13 of the International Confederation of Warlocks' Statute of Secrecy, Harry will need to appear at a disciplinary hearing at the Ministry at nine on the twelfth of August. The letter is signed by Mafalda Hopkirk of the Improper Use of Magic Office.
  • Harry is about to run. There's a crack in the kitchen and a barn owl appears bringing a letter from Mr. Weasley telling Harry to stay in the house and to not surrender his wand.
  • Uncle Vernon does not believe that Harry did nothing to Dudley. Harry tries to convince them it was Dementors. Aunt Petunia knows they guard Azkaban, as she had heard Harry's parents talk about them.
  • Another owl from the Ministry to Harry arrives, telling Harry his wand will not be destroyed and the matter of expulsion will be decided at the hearing.
  • One more owl flies in. It is from Sirius telling Harry not to leave the house.
  • Harry tells uncle Vernon that Voldemort is back. Uncle Vernon wants Harry out. He thinks that Marge was right in saying Harry should have been sent to an orphanage. Another owl flies in with a Howler for Aunt Petunia. It's a letter saying "Remember my last, Petunia". Aunt Petunia says Harry will stay.
