"Hello, hello," said Nearly Headless Nick.
"You look troubled, young Potter," said Nick, folding a transparent letter.
"So do you," said Harry.
"Ah," Nearly Headless Nick waved an elegant hand, "a matter of no importance. . . . Its not as though I really wanted to join. . . . Thought Id apply, but apparently I dont fulfill requirements -"
