It wasn't as dangerous as she'd made it out to be, maybe, because beneath the cloak no one noticed when she apparated into the Muggle alley across from the Leaky Cauldron, and Hermione had gotten very good over the years at waiting until someone opened a door and then ducking in just after them when it would be harder to explain a door opening as if invisible hands were pulling it. She got through the door to the Leaky Cauldron that way, and then through the passageway into Diagon Alley by doing much the same thing. Then it was just a matter of not running into or brushing anyone. Usually, that would be harder in the crowded alleyway, but now it seemed desolate, deserted, and there were only a few shoppers here and there who were easily avoided as she made her way toward the end of the Alley and Fred and George's shop.
Even if it wasn't as dangerous, though, it still felt as if it were. And she moved as quickly as she could and resisted the urge to huff while she waited for the door to the WWW to open so that she could slip in after another shopper. She found the twins easily at the counter, and cleared her throat loud enough next to them to get there attention before grabbing George by the wrist and tugging him toward the backroom. She knew they'd catch on fast enough, and when she was finally out of sight she took off Harry's cloak and laid it over a pile of boxes.
The twins were less impressed, of course, when she gave then her (and Harry and Ron and Ginny's) Hogwarts letter and asked them to pick up their school supplies. Then it was just a matter of waiting for Neville, and worrying at what exactly she'd tell him, and how much she should leave out.
