"I don't think you meant to kill anyone. But monsters don't make good pets. I suppose you just let it out for exercise and -"
"We always knew Hagrid had been expelled," said Harry miserably. "And the attacks must've stopped after Hagrid was kicked out. Otherwise, Riddle wouldn't have got his award."
"Knowing Snape, something foul," said Harry as the potion frothed and bubbled.
"It's happening again now. There have been three attacks and no one seems to know who's behind them. Who was it last time?"
"Ha!" said Ron excitedly. "There's one of them now!"
Harry smiled feebly. Deliberately causing mayhem in Snape's Potions class was about as safe as poking a sleeping dragon in the eye.
Gilderoy Lockhart seemed to think he himself had made the attacks stop. Harry overheard him telling Professor McGonagall so while the Gryffindors were lining up for Transfiguration.
A group of the Hufliepuffs who should have been in Herbology were indeed sitting at the back of the library, but they didn't seem to be working. Between the long lines of high bookshelves, Harry could see that their heads were close together and they were having what looked like an absorbing conversation. He couldn't see whether Justin was among them. He was walking toward them when something of what they were saying met his ears, and he paused to listen, hidden in the Invisibility section.
Harry had barely closed the door on Myrtle's gurgling sobs when a loud voice made all three of them jump.
"What does she understand?" said Harry distractedly, still looking around, trying to tell where the voice had come from.
She nibbled his ear in an affectionate sort of way, which was a far better present than the one that she had brought him, which turned out to be from the Dursleys. They had sent Harry a toothpick and a note telling him to find out whether he'd be able to stay at Hogwarts for the summer vacation, too.
"You say that like it's a bad thing," said Hermione in a slightly hurt voice.
Malfoy paused by a stretch of bare, damp stone wall.
"When I've had a look," said Malfoy, waving the diary tauntingly at Harry.
