"Er — where exactly are we?"
Bellatrix still looked unhappy, though she appeared unsure how best to attack Snape next. Taking advantage of her silence, Snape turned to her sister.
She took a great, shuddering breath and started again.
Harry had been sure Slughorn would be one of those wizards who could not bear to hear Voldemort's name spoken aloud, and was not disappointed: Slughorn gave a shudder and a squawk of protest, which Harry ignored.
"That's never - you're kidding -" Ron whispered, lifting the jar to his eyes.
Dumbledore stood up rather suddenly.
"If I had murdered Harry Potter, the Dark Lord could not have used his blood to regenerate, making him invincible —"

Snape's expression was blank, unreadable. Bellatrix, however, let out a cackle of triumphant laughter.
