"What?" said Ron. "What's Scabbers got to do with it?"
"I meant to," he growled, his yellow teeth bared, "but little Peter got the better of me... not this time, though!"
It's me," he muttered.
Harry stayed silent. Snape was trying to provoke him into telling the truth. He wasn't going to do it. Snape had no proof -- yet.
They followed him to the door into his back garden. Harry felt strangely unreal, and even more so when he saw Buckbeak a few yards away, tethered to a tree behind Hagrid's Pumpkin patch. Buckbeak seemed to know something was happening. He turned his sharp head from side to side and pawed the ground nervously.
Severus Snape was pulling off the Invisibility Cloak, his wand pointing, directly at Lupin.

Hermione did everything perfectly until she reached the trunk with the boggart in it. After about a minute inside it, she burst out again, screaming.
"Lie down," he said quietly to Ron. "You will damage that leg even more."
