THE BLOODY BIRD CAUGHT ON FIRE!
Why do things like that happen when you're near, that can't be normal? Are you actually an omen of bad luck? Your heart starts beating so fast but a chuckling Dumbledore enters the room saying 'about time'. A new baby phoenix rises from the ashes, the tiniest little chirp escapes it's beak and Dumbledore pets it.
Still a bit startled, you sit down nervously only to be calmed and reassured by Dumbledore, who apparently does not think that you're responsible of the attacks at all. Which is a great relief!
You feel quite privileged for being able to witness the re-birth of the phoenix, and you come to gently pet it, as it gives you a tiny nibble - looks like it has taken a liking to you!
You don't know what is going on, but you'd be damned if you don't figure it out before the next time you're found first at another crime scene! Even Dumbledore must have his limits!
You have completed Chapter 4! Make sure to rest in your dorm until Chapter 5 becomes available! If it's already open, head back to the Winter Magical Readathon home page to continue on!
