"Hope it goes okay," said Ron, and the pair of them watched Harry leave through the portrait hole.
"Where are we going?" Harry asked, as Dumbledore joined him at the front of the desk.
"Very good. Personally, I am inclined to think that she used a love potion. I am sure it would have seemed more romantic to her, and I do not think it would have been very difficult, some hot day, when Riddle was riding alone, to persuade him to take a drink of water. In any case, within a few months of the scene we have just witnessed, the village of Little Hangleton enjoyed a tremendous scandal. You can imagine the gossip it caused when the squire's son ran off with the tramp's daughter, Merope."
The man in rags was now advancing on Ogden, knife in one hand, wand in the other.
"She told me of your suspicions, yes," said Dumbledore.
It soon became clear that Mrs. Cole was no novice when it came to gin drinking. Pouring both of them a generous measure, she drained her own glass in one gulp. Smacking her lips frankly, she smiled at Dumbledore for the first time, and he didn't hesitate to press his advantage.
"It's. . . it's magic, what I can do?"
"Er — I'm sorry — I don't understand you," said Ogden nervously.
"The Imperius Curse?" Harry suggested. "Or a love potion?"
"Good night, sir."
"Good-bye, Tom. I shall see you at Hogwarts."
"Take it out," said Dumbledore.
"Did it just happen all of a sudden, or — ?"
"Since when have you called me 'Potter'?"
"And they ended up married?" Harry said in disbelief, unable to imagine two people less likely to fall in love.
Dumbledore stepped into a hallway tiled in black and white; the whole place was shabby but spotlessly clean. Harry and the older Dumbledore followed. Before the front door had closed behind them, a skinny, harassed-looking woman came scurrying toward them. She had a sharp-featured face that appeared more anxious than unkind, and she was talking over her shoulder to another aproned helper as she walked toward Dumbledore.
