"Come to think of it," said Sirius, emerging from the pantry carrying a large turkey as they closed the cupboard door, "has anyone actually seen Kreacher lately?"

"I haven't seen him since the night we came back here," said Harry. "You were ordering him out of the kitchen."
"Yeah..." said Sirius, frowning. "You know, I think that's the last time I saw him, too... He must be hiding upstairs somewhere..."
"He couldn't have left, could he?" said Harry. "I mean, when you said 'out', maybe he thought you meant, get out of the house?"
"No, no, house-elves can't leave unless they're given clothes, they're tied to their family house," said Sirius.
"They can leave the house if they really want to," Harry contradicted him. "Dobby did, he left the Malfoys' to give me warnings two years ago. He had to punish himself afterwards, but he still managed it."
Sirius looked slightly disconcerted for a moment, then said, "I'll look for himm later, I expect I'll find him upstairs crying his eyes out over my mother's old bloomers or something... Of course, he might have crawled into the airing cupboard and died... But I mustn't get my hopes up..."
Fred, George, and Ron laughed; Hermoine, however, looked reproachful.

Its Campus Care Network Day at school tomorrow.. Its a sorta bazaar thing.. My class was supposed to be doing a beach bar cum selling of flowers.. It would have been damn fun.. But then it had been ruined.. Sigh, the organisers didn't want to give us a booth, which made us so pissed of that we fired them.. So we'll only be buying stuff tomorrow in support of CCN Day, instead of selling stuff.. Hope there's gonna be good stuff tomorrow.. =)
