It appeared unattainable that the factor may hear such a weak voice, however in some way, it did. Or it regarded down at them for another purpose; the boys would by no means know. It bent down and reached for them, fastidiously choosing them up with one clawed hand.

“We made it,” the primary boy whispered. “We’re his masters now.”

“Then we will command him to place us down, proper?” Tom whispered again.

“Loosen up, he in all probability simply needs to listen to us higher,” Harry replied, although he wasn’t certain of it. God, it was so large!
