Reply: Luna, Hermione, any others that're left that feel like joining.
"Of course Miss Granger," the professor replied and watched with satisfaction as Luna joined as well.
It was a decent sized party, not too small, not too big that it would make exploration difficult. She'd certainly dealt with larger groups of students before.
"Step lively now and keep an eye out. We'll hurry on up to Dumbledore's office and see if we can't sort this whole mess out."
Luna nodded in response to Hermione as their little group made its way to Professor Dumbledore's office. It was an odd feeling having the castle so still and quiet. The air felt heavy and cold. Hermione was right. This was a strange mess.
Luna stopped short as the older Ginny whispered and grabbed hold of her robes. She tilted her head to the side and listened.
Yes. She heard it too. A strange shuffling sound and muffled clunks coming from around the corner ahead in the dark passage.
