Another week comes to an end as a new one begins, but Sunday lunch wasn’t as pleasantly filled as usual. Yes the food was divine as always the elves always outdo themselves on Sundays, and the company was well too. Seems like it was a much needed break from the usual day to day activities in the castle, considering there was not Sunday feast last week. Which might explain why there was as many shocks, surprises and half answers as there was food this Sunday.
If you were unable to attend the Sunday feast I’m here to fill you in on what you missed, well besides the food, I don’t share food. Deputy Headmistress O’Keeffe addressed the house points as per usual except that Ravenclaw has taken the lead leaving the other houses to catch up. Along with congratulating Gryffindor on their win of the Qudditch game Saturday, with mention of Professor Knagthon taking a rather sudden leave of absence, and the retirement of Professor Bellingham to be with his new family. Now that official business was out of the way we get to the most revealing part of the speech.
Surprisingly enough it seemed as our dearly beloved Deputy Headmistress seemed to be fairly forthcoming and letting as the muggles would say “the cat out of the bag” on the fears and woes she was having for the school. Honestly it was about time for some brute honesty, we as students need to know what is happening on the grounds so we can help protect ourselves and others around us. As for informing us for the first opportunity I will have to disagree that Sunday lunch was the first opportunity we’ve had to announce that not only one but now three attacks have happened on school grounds, owls could of been sent, HoHs could of been informed to inform students but I digress now that we have this information what do we do with it.
It is comforting to know that the ministry has been informed and is involved as well, but this is one man so I urge you to study up on what can keep werewolves away and at bay, yes there is always wolfsbane but there is other ways too. I implore each and every one of you to take upon yourself to learn as much as you can to protect yourself, your classmates and this castle from what is lurking beyond these walls. If there is one thing I can agree on is that without the support of all the walls will fall, I know things in the castle have been tense, but let’s try to put our differences aside and fight whatever there is lurking in the dark.
