Diggory's grief seemed to be beyond tears.
"And after all, Amos ... he died just when he'd won the tournament. He must have been happy."

He had barely resumed his seat, and arranged his face into what he hoped was a relaxed and unfazed expression, when bright green flames burst into life in the empty grate beneath his marble mantelpiece. He watched, trying not to betray a flicker of surprise or alarm, as a portly man appeared within the flames, spinning as fast as a top.
