We ran from the grounds up to the commen room. We said good night to each other and went to bed.
In the morning we went down to see hermione. We sat by her. Just then we heard a stiring. There, looking right at us, was that girl. the one Draco liked. I had heard she had been frozen with hermione.
"Check her hand," she said.
"What?" said harry.
"Check her hand," she said again. "Go on."
Harry looked at the hand held out in frount of hermione.
"Nothing's there," he said.
"Not that one! the other hand! Now I know where Draco get the idea your dumb!" She said.
"Well sorry! Mrs. fussy!" I said.
"Look," she said "I am staking everything on helping you hear, just check her other hand!"
Harry checked the other hand.
"There's a piece of paper!"
He started to pull it out.
"And why are you helping US?" said Ron "Aren't you that prat Draco's friend? wait! You should be frozen with hermione!"
so it was true then. this girl should be frozen.
"I have... speachal properties..." she said looking down. "Don't tell anyone I'm okay! They'll find out. I'm Elisa by the way."
She looked at me. waiting for my name.
"Amila..." I say.
"Nice to meet you!" A smile spread across her face. she looked nice. The kind of girl who wanted to be friends with everyone.
"It's somthing about a thing called a basilisk..." said Harry.
"There's a word here..."
"What does it say?!" I ask.
"Pipes," he said.
"PIPES?!" I said. "Pipes?! I thought it would be somthing more helpful!"
"Me too," said Elisa.
"No this helps so much!" said harry
"You ok mate?" asked ron.
"What's been freezing people is a basilisk!"
"Oh my gosh! reall? I didn't know!" said Elisa.
"It's been climbing through the pipes, that's why no one's seen it! Plus it's a snake so that's why only I can hear it!"
"What do you mean?" asked Elisa "I hear it too."
We all looked at her. "What?" she asked looking around.
"YOU can talk to snakes?!" Harry asked.
"No! I did not open the chamber!"
"Then why are you not frozen?" asked harry
"Why are YOU not frozen? you can talk to snakes just as much as me!"
This girl... she seemed like me. should I tell them?
