"Potters! Finnigan! Thomas! Weasley! Longbottom! Weasley told me you had all been murdered!" McGonagall said, turning to glare at Percy.
"That's what Michael told me!" Percy said. Niki assumed he was referring to the seventh year boy.
"We heard Niki scream about murder, and then we couldn't find anyone, the dorm was trashed, and there was blood. Turns out the blood and trashing was an accident, everyone leaving was a coincidence, and Niki screaming was a prank on Harry and Ron." Michael explained. "We thought Percy went to get Dumbledore."
"He did!" McGonagall said, her notrils flaring and turning white, and her mouth turning into a thin line. Niki didn't know that a mouth could go that thin. "He sent me to take you lot downstairs to the Great Hall, while he alerted the rest of the staff and prepared the students for evacuation!"
The situation just kept getting funnier to Niki.
"Come." McGonagall demanded. "We must go to the Great Hall and inform Dumbledore."
Gryffindor followed McGonagall downstairs to the Great Hall and watched as she informed Dumbledore as to what had happened. He looked livid.
"SILENCE!" He shouted out over the panicking students at the tables. "Nicole Potter, come up here. Now." Niki walked up to the head table. "Will you care to explain what happened here?"
"Well, I was pranking Harry and Ron, my twin and his friend. I shouted that there had been murder, and smashed the water jug over his head. Then I told him he was late for classes. They trashed the dorm, and Harry got cut. Then me and the other boys in his dorm followed Harry and Ron down to Potions, the class I told them they were late for, since that's our second class today. When we got back, everyone was panicking. I didn't realize the entirety of Gryffindor Tower could hear me when I yelled." Niki explained.
"Nicole, do you have something to tell the school?" Dumbledore asked.
"Yes. I have one thing to say to ya'll." Niki said.
"Don't forget to say sorry to the school." Dumbledore reminded.
"Fine, two things." Niki said. Dumbledore started to chuckle. "One, the next person to call me Nicole will get hexed. Next, by Dumbeldore's personal request, sorry to the school." Niki left the Head Table. Dumbledore was laughing harder now. He composed himself, and dismissed the school to get ready for classes.
That was a shorter chapter. Oh well, I really wanted to get that in. Anyway, Snoodles is now my official sign-off. So...
