The battle with the dark wizards was tense, and I am glad that I had prepared a stock of potions in advance for just such a contingency. After giving Lucy her invisibility potion with instructions to drink it and hide, I started towards the doors to the great hall. As I neared dark wizards, I would toss a potion to interfere with whatever they were trying to do. In one case the glue bomb that hit one was particularly effective. When I reached the doors I used my wand to get outside where Lilith and Trent were trying to rescue Chloe. I provided some assistance with spells throwing objects at Chloe's attackers. We eventually defeated them but the leader fled back deeper into the castle. Inside the Great Hall, the teachers and students finally finished settling things there and were trying to get everyone organized and accounted for. Several students ended up missing including Trent.
As the attackers were unmasked, most were not people that we recognized, but one of the leaders was a teacher at Hogwarts, Professor Lovegood.
We are eventually escorted to our dorms to pick up any needed supplies and then allowed to sleep under watchful guard in classrooms. The next morning we are informed that Hogwarts will be closing down while this is investigated. We will be sent home and then from there we will have the opportunity to transfer to an American school on the west coast that has space to finish out the year.
When the day comes to go to the new school, we travel by porte key, and I become an oddity again. All of their regulations are again based on age which puts me in the wrong place for my ability. We eventually get things sorted out and I end up in a room with Gustoff.
After setting up my lab equipment for potions, I go with Gustoff to find food. As more of the transfers from Hogwarts show up in the cafeteria, they start attracting a crowd. I find a table away from the others so that I can observe how these students behave while Lilith, Gustoff and Moire provide entertainment from the local students.
