here, Evan,” said Hope pointedly.
“Oh. Right,” was his sulky reply.
“Come on, you guys! Focus!” said Lindsay loudly, clapping her hands together. “Now, what could cause them to act clueless?”
Hope scratched her chin, as she was prone to do when thinking hard. “Could they be Confunded?” she mused aloud.
“It’s a possibility,” said Nicolas, “but the referee said no one was near our changing room.”
“Money!” yelled Lindsay suddenly, snapping her fingers. “The Slytherins are all rich!”
“And your point is. . .?” inquired Evan, leaning forward.
“Bribery,” replied Lindsay simply.
