A clacking of heels were heard coming from from the dungeon, and a tall girl wearing a simple but elegant dress appeared.
"Ah, Jessica we were afraid you wouldn't make it tonight." Said a tall slender man sitting at the head of a long oak table.
"Pardon my lateness sir. I was held up by a few Griffindors in the hall." Jessica replied politely.
"Well all we are waiting for is Beatrice and we can start. Uh Jessica change and then take your seat." He stated
Jessica turned and a bright glow covered her body. When it was gone she was wearing black leggings, and a short green dress with different weapons hidden. She wore a great sword that had the name ripper in a delicate inscription. She then took her seat at next to a tall boy. She was one of the assassins.
I sat in transfiguration class thinking about what has happened this year and how Albus and Scorpius were not even close to becoming friends. Bea was sitting next to me trying to get rid of the stains on her shirt, a Griffindor nocked into her on the way to class. An idea popped into my head. "What if there was another way to get all of us back to our normal place in time, without having to unite Slytherin and Griffindor?" When I told Bea she looked ecstatic and was about to ask me something but the Professor came over and asked us to turn our animals into goblets. Luckily we were able to do it very quickly even though the Professor was mad that she wasn't able to give out detentions.
When class was over Bea and I raced out of class so we could find John. As we were passing through the great hall Something caught my eye. Something was different about the hourglasses that held the house points. Before I could get a closer look Bea was vigorously trying to get my attention.
"Jessica isn't that the girl that-"
"Got accidentally time traveled, yep thats a positive." I said cutting her off.
"Hey, Aliona!" Bea called
She started running towards us.
"Thank god your alive, no one could find you." Aliona said once she reached us.
"What do you mean," Bea asked
"When Griffindor cursed you guys no one knew. But people started to figure it out after a lot of other went missing. Sadly since he had such a strong reputation of being good because of that one thing he did no one could prove it! So Salazar and Rowena sent me to the future so I could tell you that he spilt his soul but not by horcruxes. They don't officially understand it but apparently he took his heart out of his chest, just like the story in Beadle the Bard, the one with the wizard who couldn't love. But he went further he melted it down into different substances and made different objects that would forever hold a section of his heart." Aliona informed
"What does that mean?" Jessica Asked
"Well, Salazar and Rowena think there might be another way to get everyone back, but it'll take a long time and we'd someone who knows the area and how things are in this day of age."
"I think I might have an idea of who could help us." Beatrice said giving me uneasy look.
"James'." I said with a smile
"Right, he's heard all the stories from his father and he must know the area." Aliona added.
"Ok, so how should we ask?" Bea asked, "It's not like we can do it like before."
"Um.. I guess we could just ask."
"You know that never works with Griffindors Aliona." Jessica stated
"Well we could always try, things might be different these days." Bea sugested
"Fine, we can ask him after dinner."
