I've been reading HP and came across this para that I don't quite understand.
“Well, you can’t blame him for wanting to get out and about,” said Ron, when Harry discussed his fears with him and Hermione. “I mean, he’s been on the run for over two years, hasn’t he, and I know that can’t have been a laugh, but at least he was free, wasn’t he? And now he’s just shut up all the time with that ghastly elf(Kreacher).” Hermione scowled at Ron, but otherwise ignored the slight on Kreacher.
I want to know what the highlighted part means.
My understanding is that Hermione got angry at Ron for insulting elf but then she ignored this and went on to talk about something else and not fight with Ron.
