The moment her finger touched the Mark, Harrys scar burned savagely, the starry room vanished from sight, and he was standing upon an outcrop of rock beneath a cliff, and the sea was washing around him and there was a triumph in his heartThey have the boy.

A loud bang brought Harry back to where he stood. Disoriented, he raised his wand, but the witch before him was already falling forward; she hit the ground so hard that the glass in the bookcases tinkled.

Ive never Stunned anyone except in our D.A. lessons, said Luna, sounding mildly interested. That was noisier than I though it would be.

And sure enough, the ceiling had begun to tremble. Scurrying, echoing footsteps were growing louder from behind the door leading to the dormitories. Lunas spell had woken Ravenclaws sleeping above.

Luna, where are you? I need to get under the Cloak!

Lunas feet appeared out of nowhere; he hurried to her side and she let the Cloak fall back over them as the door opened and a stream of Ravenclaws, all in their nightclothes, flooded into the common room. There were gasps and cries of surprise as they saw Alecto lying there unconscious. Slowly they shuffled in around her, a savage beast that might wake at any moment and attack them. Then one brave little first-year darted up to her and prodded her backside with his big toe.

I think she might be dead! he shouted with delight.

Oh look, whispered Luna happily, as the Ravenclaws crowded in around Alecto. Theyre pleased!

Yeah great

Harry closed his eyes, and as his scar throbbed he chose to sink again into Voldemorts mind He was moving along the tunnel into the first cave He had chosen to make sure of the locket before coming but that would not take him long

There was a rap on the common room door and every Ravenclaw froze. From the other side, Harry heard the soft, musical voice that issued from the eagle door knocker: Where do Vanished objects go?

I dunno, do I? Shut it! snarled an uncouth voice that Harry knew was that of the Carrow brother, Amycus. Alecto? Alecto? Are you there? Have you got him? Open the door!


  1. A terrible rasping, gurgling noise issued from Snapes throat.
  2. And to Harrys horror, Slughorn threw out an arm and seemed to scoop Snape out of thin air toward them.
  3. Barely two minutes later, the castle doors flew open yet again, and Snape came charging out of them, running toward the Willow.
  4. Bellatrix still looked unhappy, though she appeared unsure how best to attack Snape next. Taking advantage of her silence, Snape turned to her sister.
  5. Dumbledore opened his eyes. Snape looked horrified.
  6. Filthy, disheveled, Winky peered around Snapes legs. Her mouth opened wide and she let out a piercing shriek.
  7. For some reason, Snape seemed even angrier than he had done two minutes before, when Harry had seen into his teachers memories.
  8. From behind a suit of armor stepped Severus Snape.
  9. Harry could tell Snape was thoroughly enjoying himself, denying Harry the thing he wanted when he was so panicky.
  10. Harry disregarded this; he felt a savage pleasure in blaming Snape, it seemed to be easing his own sense of dreadful guilt, and he wanted to hear Dumbledore agree with him.
  11. Harry had dived for his wand; Snape shot a hex at it and it flew feet away into the darkness and out of sight.
  12. Harry smiled feebly. Deliberately causing mayhem in Snapes Potions class was about as safe as poking a sleeping dragon in the eye.

But Harry cut across Luna. | The Ravenclaws were whispering amongst themselves, terrified. Then without warning, there came a series of loud bangs, as though somebody was firing a gun into the door.
