Harry heard Ron gasp and looked up again. He had made up his mind what he was going to do.
His voice trailed away hopefully.
"You mean you're running away?" said Harry disbelievingly. "After all that stuff you did in your books -"
Even as he reached for his wand, Harry knew it was no good, there were too many of them, but as he tried to stand, ready to die fighting, a loud, long note sounded, and a blaze of light flamed through the hollow.
"The basilisk kills people by looking at them. But no one's died - because no one looked it straight in the eye. Colin saw it through his camera. The basilisk burned up all the film inside it, but Colin just got Petrified. Justin . . . Justin must've seen the basilisk through Nearly Headless Nick! Nick got the full blast of it, but he couldn't die again . . . and Hermione and that Ravenclaw prefect were found with a mirror next to them. Hermione had just realized the monster was a basilisk. I bet you anything she warned the first person she met to look around corners with a mirror first! And that girl pulled out her mirror - and -"
She left, and Harry and Ron gazed uncertainly at Dumbledore. What exactly had Professor McGonagall meant, deal with them? Surely - surely - they weren't about to be punished?
"It certainly seems so," said Dumbledore. "We have much to be thankful for. Would you care for a lemon drop?"
Something wet touched Harry's hand and he jumped backward, crushing Rods foot, but it was only Fang's nose.
"Look," said Harry, losing patience, "I don't think you get it. We're in the Chamber of Secrets. We can talk later -"
A smile curled the corners of Riddle's mouth. He continued to stare at Harry, twirling the wand idly.
"I've come to bring Harry to his aunt and uncle. They're the only family he has left now."
There was a pause.
"We weren't there, remember?" Harry muttered.
It was like rushing down an endless, slimy, dark slide. He could see more pipes branching off in all directions, but none as large as theirs, which twisted and turned, sloping steeply downward, and he knew that he was falling deeper below the school than even the dungeons. Behind him he could hear Ron, thudding slightly at the curves.。
"that's got him out from under our feet. The Heads of Houses should go and inform their students what has happened. Tell them the Hogwarts Express will take them home first thing tomorrow. Will the rest of you please make sure no students have been left outside their dormitories."。
