Soon, the school was filing in, staring at the four who were at the scene. Malfoy was the first to speak, "Enemies of the Heir beware? You'll be next mudbloods." Harry could see Scarlett clenching her teeth and her hands were fists.
The worst happened, Professor McGonagall, Sprout, Snape, Dumbledore, Lockhart , and Madam Promfery, also came. Mr. Filtch came in and started screaming, "It was the Potters' FAULT! They know I'm a squib!"
Scarlett gasped. "You're accusing us with out evidence?! I don't think second years can even learn how to do whatever happened to Mrs. Norris!" "What's a squib?" Harry asked.
"So you admit you broke the rules!" Filtch replied.
"We didn't do anything to Mrs. Norris! Believe it or not, I'm actually very fond of cats! And Harry doesn't even know what a squib is!" Scarlett said.
"Argus, she's right. No second year could have ever done this." Professor Dumbledore spoke calmly.
"My cat has been murdered!" Filtch shouted. "She has been petrified." Professor Dumbledore said, "Professor Sprout has Mandrakes growing, I'm sure we can use them to turn Mrs. Norris to her original state."
"Everyone go back to you Dormitories." Dumbledore called, "Everyone except you four." Dumbledore pointed at Scarlett, Harry, Ron, and Hermione.
"I believe, Headmaster, the Potters, Miss Granger and Mr Weasley were just at the wrong place at the wrong time." Snape spoke up.
"However, I don't remember seeing Mr. Potter at dinner."
"That would be my doing Severus, Harry and I were answering my fan mail." Lockhart said.
"He didn't show up at the feast at all though. Surely he would have come. Then, his friends left."
"We went to look for Harry and he said he wasn't hungry, so we left for the common room. We we're going there when we found Mrs. Norris." Scarlett said.
"You may go." Professor Dumbledore replied.
As they walked Professor Dumbledore told Snape, "Don't look at me like that Severus, they're innocent until proved guilty."
