Harry looked around as Dumbledore appeared beside him and saw that they were standing in Slughorn's office. Haifa dozen boys were sitting around Slughorn, all on harder or lower seats than his, and all in their mid-teens. Harry recognized Voldemort at once.

Purplish-grey clouds hung low over the castle and a constant fall of chilly rain made the lawns slippery and muddy.
