"Anyway, one of them grabbed Ginny's foot,
I used the Reductor Curse and blew up Pluto in his face." [Luna]
And Harry saw the look of mingled fear and surprise on his
godfather's wasted, once-handsome face as he fell through the ancient
doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment
as though in a high wind and then fell back into place.
