Harry had to quicken his pace to keep speed with the scarcely haired and presumptuous menopausal man who was storming through the airy halls of Hogwarts.
He had been charged by the headmaster to escort the Ofsted inspector through the school, and to give a guided tour.
But the arrogant and all-knowing attitude of the inspector was making his task very difficult.
They were coming up to a corner now, which led to a flight of stairs, which in turn led to the Dark Arts Rooms.
Harry was not looking forward to those.
As they entered the dark, shaded rooms professor Snape’s black, squinting eyes snapped to the short, flustered man.
Harry watched with amusement the scene before him, as Mr Peters explained to an infuriated Snape the government’s new plans for stronger links between teacher performance and pay.
