Peter Pettigrew was sprang back heavily and fell to the ground.
He didn’t understand what was going on. Things were too weird this evening.
The gate of the castle was clearly open and there was nothing in front of it, but he couldn't go through it, as if there was an invisible wall blocking it.
Pettigrew shook his head to dispel the dizziness. But before he could do anything, Sirius Black turned into a giant black dog, leaped up and slammed down from the stairs. With his front paws, he pressed heavily against his body.
Pettigrew quickly rolled backwards and shook violently in despair.
He felt the warmth of Black's body. He saw the one-inch-long sharp teeth, and those eyes that were filled with hatred and anger.
Black rolled over Peter’s body with a surge of wrath and powerful force.
Pettigrew felt that his ribs were broken. He resisted the pain, stood up and was ready to escape again.
Before he could do anything, a hand came from the side and Evan grabbed him. Peter struggled, but it was useless. Evan firmly grasped his long, bald tail and he could not escape. Crookshanks jumped over to Evan's shoulder and meowed low.
"You caught him!" Harry, Hermione, and Ron rushed down the stairs panting.
Harry had the Marauder's Map in his hand and his face was full of joy. Hermione looked at Evan worried, and Ron looked at Peter with a dull gaze.
“How did you get here, Evan? I thought you and Professor Snape…” Hermione came to embrace Evan.
Evan blinked and couldn’t understand what Hermione was saying.
Why did she mention Snape? He obviously did not meet him. Looking at Harry and Hermione's excitement, Evan felt a little weird. It was too strange that Harry and Hermione had apparently saved him in Prof. Lupin's office. How could they be with Black and Ron?
Evan looked at both of their expressions, and he didn't understand anything at all. Besides, the figure that he had just seen behind the curtain…
Before he could perceive what was going on, he heard Black’s angry roar.
“Give him to me, boy! Give me that rat!” Sirius Black has returned to his adult form. He rushed to Evan.
“I'm going to kill him!” he shouted furiously, his eyes full of hatred staring at Peter hard, his face twisting distorted, revealing a terrible longing.
Looking at Black's appearance, Peter Pettigrew squealed like a pig, constantly twisting, his small black eyes seemed to bulge out. He tried his best to bite Evan's arm, trying to escape.
Evan pulled out his wand and threw Peter out.
His wand glowed blue-white, and for a moment, Peter hung in the air, his gray little body wriggling wildly, then he fell down heavily.
Then another light came out of the wand, and it looked like the fast sprouting of a magical tree.
A head appeared on the ground and limbs stretched out. Eventually, a man was standing where the rat used to be.
Peter Pettigrew winced and looked at the five in front of him panting powerlessly.
“Sirius!” said Peter in a low, trembling voice, panic-stricken. “My dear, old friend!”
Black did not respond, and he showed his anger with actions.
While Peter was screaming, he rushed forward with great strength and almost shredded him. Harry and Evan hurried to separate the two of them.
The blood flowed out of Peter’s mouth, and his pale face was full of big beads of sweat.
He shivered behind Evan and Harry, panicking. His eyes looking away from Sirius Black, quickly glanced at the others, paused for a moment on Evan and Ron, then looked at the open gates of the castle. There was obviously nothing there, so why couldn't he just get out through it?!
“You are Peter Pettigrew, the guy who sold my parents out to Voldemort and killed them??” Harry pointed up at him with his wand and said angrily.
“I haven’t, boy!” Peter stared at Harry with disorientation. Harry was just in the office and he clearly attacked him. Now why did he say this, as if there was still a doubt? He didn't understand what was going on. But instinctively, that inspired him what to do. He screamed pointing at Black with his broken right hand, pointing at him. “It was his murder, he killed James and Lily. He is going to kill me again. He is Voldemort’s spy!”
"How dare you," he growled, sounding suddenly like the bearsized dog he had been. "I, a spy for Voldemort? When did I ever sneak around people who were stronger and more powerful than myself? But you, Peter, I'll never understand why I didn't see you were the spy from the start. You always liked big friends who'd look after you, didn't you? It used to be us… me and Remus… and James…"
Pettigrew wiped his face again; he was almost panting for breath.
"Me, a spy… must be out of your mind… never… don't know how you can say such a…"
“Harry, I just told you in the Common Room and in front of Snape that it was my advice that made James and Lily trust that guy as their Secret Keeper!" Black hissed, so venomously that Pettigrew took a step backward. "I thought it was the perfect plan… a bluff… Voldemort would be sure to come after me, would never dream they'd use a weak, talentless thing like you…" He closed his eyes and instantly opened them and glared at Peter. "It must have been the finest moment of your miserable life, telling Voldemort you could hand him the Potters."
“Absurd ! You’re insane!” Peter mumbled. “I didn’t do it.”
“Don’t pretend. We know everything. You killed my parents. You framed Sirius Black!” Harry shouted, his face covered with tears. “Now you come back. You Framed Professor Lupin; and Ron, you controlled him with the Imperius Curse.”
“Don’t listen to Black, Harry! He’s a murderer; he is a madman…. .." Peter turned to Harry and pleaded, "I admit that I took control of Ron. It was me who revealed Lupin's werewolf status. What I did was not proper, but I did it for your safety. Lupin and Black are very dangerous! Believe me, Harry! I’m helping Ron and helping you!"
Peter dipped on the ground, shaking out of control.
Evan noticed that Ron, who was standing behind Harry, had moved. So he was immediately vigilant and pointed his wand at him. Ron’s face was full of confusion and everything that happened in front of him seemed to touch him very much. Just like in Professor Lupin's office just now, he was resisting the curse. It looked like he was about to succeed.
Seeing Ron’s expression, Evan hesitated for a moment and did nothing. He decided to just observe.
If Ron can overcome the Imperius Curse on his own, it will be very good for him.
Things have progressed to this point. Although there were many strange things that have not been made clear, this year’s event is destined to an end.
If Ron could succeed in resisting the Curse with his own will, that would be the perfect ending.
