14. Gryffindor robes

****

Harry Potter put on his Gryffindor robes. Ron wore his new robes. "I like it!", he uttered. George and Fred Weasley smiled. "Who brought it, Ron?", Fred asked. "Harry did. He didn't have to", he said. Suddenly Oliver Wood walked towards Harry. "Quidditch practice is at 3:00 PM tomorrow, Potter". Harry nodded. Before anyone could sleep, Hagrid held a lamp in his huge right hand. "Lights out!", he said. And, as he walked out of the dorms, the Hogwarts wizards yawned....and slept soundly.

Harry Potter was asleep when he heard a voice.

"​The wizard's robes are dark...​". He turned the light on. As he gripped his glasses, he stared at the robe that Ron had brought; he gasped that it was gone. "RON!", he shouted. Ron rubbed his eyes. "What's the matter?". "Your robe is missing", Harry said. "WHAT!", he yelled. He was dressed in his blue pyjamas. "I have to find it". They walked towards the dorm doors. "Illuminate!​", Harry Potter uttered. Then, to their relief, the hallway was brightly lit; their faces were brightly lit as well. Before Ron and Harry could do anything, the two eleven year old wizards stared at Mrs. Norris and Argus Filch. He was talking to Professor Snape. ​What are they talking about?​, Harry Potter asked himself. To their relief, they didn't see them. On the hard, grey, ground was Ron's robe. Dirt was on it. "That's mine!", Ron said. Argus Filch turned to his left. "Who's out of their dorms?", he asked. The robe lifted off the ground; the magical part of the robe scared Argus Filch. "Don't touch it, Severus!", he answered. He gripped the robe. "It's owned by no one". Professor Snape shivered. "Let it go, Argus". And, as Snape headed to the dungeons, Argus continued to patrol the ancient castle, unaware that something bad was going to happen the next day.

Harry Potter walked back to the dorms. "Password", the Fat Lady said. "Gryffindor", he said. "You may enter". And he, and Ron, reached their beds. Ron put on his robe. Written in thick, black letters, were the words: Salazar Slytherin​. "Harry, look!", Ron said. "This is the old wizard's robe. It belongs to Slytherin house. I'll buy you a Gryffindor robe once we go back to Diagon Alley, if we go with Hermoine and Hagrid". And he yawned...as they grabbed the robe...and went to bed.
