An anonymous submission was sent in this morning, here for everyone to read.
This is a letter I am not pleased to write, but I think my duty to the school and people’s safety is more important at this point.
Yesterday night, I was walking though the long gallery. What can I say? people with insomnia like me cannot stay locked in their dorms or common rooms during night and I swear we do not mean to cause any harm.
Like I was saying, as I was walking through the long gallery and making my way to the courtyard, I saw somebody…or something in the penumbra. I was meaning to approach it, when I suddenly heard a prefect getting between us.
As a normal student who fears the precious house points to be taken away, I stepped back from said prefect, and the thing I was meaning to approached…. growled. That’s right, there was a creature in the long gallery, INSIDE the castle.
I will not detailed how I escaped. Feeling guilt, I returned back an couple of minutes after that, and luckily, I didn’t have either blood nor a dismembered body.
It is not my intention to expose anyone. I will not say it was the caretaker’s or Hogwarts faculty’s fault, but everyone must be aware that there is SOMETHING that growls and managed to enter the castle during the night.
Students, teachers, portraits, beware: Don’t wander around alone, or you might not be as lucky as I was.
