His tone was casual but his eyes moved curiously over Riddle's face. They stood for a moment, man and boy, staring at each other. Then the handshake was broken; Dumbledore was at the door.
"He's speaking Parseltongue?"
"Yes, sir," said Harry.
"But she could do magic!" said Harry impatiently. "She could have got food and everything for herself by magic, couldn't she?"
