As Malfoy settles back into his elegant chair, seemingly convinced that you're acting normal, he gets back to the topic at hand:

"But then -

'I wish I knew who it is,' said Malfoy petulantly. 'I could help them'

Ron's jaw dropped so that Crabbe's face looked even more gormless than usual. Fortunately, Malfoy didn't notice, and Harry, thinking fast, said, 'You must have some idea who's behind it all...'

'You know  I haven't, Goyle, how many times do I have to tell you? snapped Malfoy.

Well, that settles it, Malfoy isn't the heir. You turn your head towards Ron, or Crabbe, who looks at you in return. His eyes suddenly widen and before you could ask you suspect why - Crabbe's hair suddenly starts turning bright red and growing longer. Your time is up!

You shoot up from the sofa and run for it, shouting a reply to Malfoys question 'Hospital wing, got stomach ache'

By the time you get to the first floor, you are almost back to your old selves. You turn towards the hallway where you hid your clothes to change, but Ron says he's going to check on Hermione and that he will meet you later.

After you are comfortably in your own uniform you turn to go back too, but then you hear it again. The same cold whisper that made your skin crawl. 

After half a second of hesitation you follow the sound, what if someone was in trouble? The sound travels faster than you could run however! 

Once you turn the corner you are met with a grim view. There, in the middle of the dimly lit corridor, is Nearly Headless Nick's ghost, but he has an odd shade to him and he is very clearly not his usual self. He seems petrified. And behind him lays a Hufflepuff boy from your year! He looks as if he was turned to stone too. 

What do you do? Do you approach the scene or do you run before anyone actually sees you (you'll of course make sure someone does find them soon!)? Half the school seems to think you have something to do with this Chamber of Secrets since you were the one to find Mrs Norris. It would be terrible to be found at another crime scene again. 


No, you can't risk

being seen near them
