After staying in Place Cachée in France for a few days, Jerry set off to return to the Leaky Cauldron in London. Because the day that Hermione agreed to buy books together is coming soon.

“How much is this?” In a small gift shop at 15th Charing Street, London, Jerry picked up a Russian matryoshka doll on the gift shelf and asked the owner.

He had just returned to London by train from Hastings before he had time to return to the Leaky Cauldron. He just thought that he hadn’t had time to buy something for the Sealing Magic, so he found a small gift shop nearby.

“Oh, it only costs five pounds. But since it’s your first visit, I can do it for four pounds!” The owner had just finished taking care of a transaction and introduced it to Jerry enthusiastically.

“Okay, thanks!” After paying the money and holding the matryoshka doll, he continued walking toward the Leaky Cauldron.

The matryoshka doll could be used to seal Voldemort’s soul.

“When school starts, I’ll find a way to learn to Apparate.” Pushing open the door of the Leaky Cauldron, Jerry thought secretly.

Without Apparition, many things would be very inconvenient. Originally, he could have returned to his room or Diagon Alley with just one Apparation. But now, he has to walk slowly on his own feet.

It was the same with the Aurors in Place Cachée last time. Those wizards could use Apparition to escape, but he had to rely on his strength to escape.

However, if you want to learn Apparation, someone must guide you. If you practice blindly according to the magic book, it is easy to split your body. For example, after Apparating, the body teleports, but the arms and legs stay in place. Even with the guidance of a teacher, not every wizard can master it.

When the Ministry of Magic sent someone to teach Apparition at Hogwarts last semester, he would take the time to listen secretly.

There is another very important thing, and that is his Trace.

He is unsure whether the Trace is inside his wand or on his body, so even though he doesn’t use the wand very much now, he dares not use magic outside of Diagon Alley.

If this troublesome problem is not resolved, he will be very restricted as long as he is in the UK until he reaches the age of eighteen unless he intends to wipe out the entire Ministry of Magic on his own.

But in essence, he still wanted a relatively peaceful environment to study magic.

“Mr. Lockhart, can I have an autograph?” As soon as Jerry opened the door and walked into the Leaky Cauldron, he was taken aback by the lively scene in the bar.

Although the Leaky Cauldron Bar is located in a magical street like Diagon Alley, the business is mediocre due to the store’s environment. Therefore, in most cases, the bar is not full, and it is relatively quiet.

But at this time, the number of people in the bar was quite crowded and very noisy. Taking a closer look, the main reason for this is the wizard in gorgeous robes standing at the bar counter, Gilderoy Lockhart.

He is the Defense Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts this year.

Gilderoy Lockhart, third-class Medal of the Order of Merlin, Professor of the Defense Against the Dark Arts, and five-time Witch Weekly’s Most Charming Smile Award winner, is currently the most popular author in the wizarding world.

“It turned out to be him. No wonder.”

Looking at Lockhart, who was surrounded by a group of middle-aged witches at the bar to sign their autograph, Jerry suddenly showed a dazed expression. Avoiding them, Jerry took a detour and walked up the stairs on the bar’s second floor.

“Tomorrow from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., I will hold a signing event for my new book autobiography “Magical Me”. Everyone must come and join us!” Lockhart at the bar flicked his blond hair and showed his bright teeth. He is promoting tomorrow’s event while signing their books for the fans.

They screamed repeatedly, saying they would definitely be there to buy one. As for the middle-aged wizards behind them, the expressions on their faces were not so happy.

“Signing event? Hmm.” Jerry, who was walking on the stairs, saw the scene below, shook his head secretly, and replied in his heart.

Just now, he had heard some people in the bar discuss that Lockhart seemed to be staying at the Leaky Cauldron tonight, and Tom even waived his accommodation fee on purpose.

At ten o’clock in the middle of the night, Jerry used the Disillusionment Charm to hide and quietly came to the door of Lockhart’s room.

“Alohomora.”

The door was immediately opened under the effect of the Unlocking Charm. Pushing open the door and cautiously walking into the room, Jerry soon found Lockhart currently asleep.

“Imperio.”

Stretching out his hand to cast the Imperius Curse on him, Jerry took out a magic pen that could write automatically that he bought at the Place Cachée and ordered to him, “Now, tell in detail how you deceived those wizards and witches, took their stories for your own, and erased all their memories.”

Lockhart nodded happily, “When I graduated from Hogwarts in 1982, I kept thinking about becoming famous, becoming a highly respected wizard like Dumbledore, and receiving flowers and applause from countless people. But I dare not to meet and fight those evil wizards, vampires, and ghosts.”

“Fortunately, shortly after graduation, I mastered the Obliviate Spell and used it very well, so I came up with a very good idea.”

Following Lockhart’s narration, his life experience from graduation to the present has been recorded bit by bit with the magic pen. Two hours later, Jerry cast the Obliviate Curse and Sleeping Curse on Lockhart, who had finished telling his story.

“This book should be called “The Real Lockhart”!”

Dozens of pages of paper full of Lockhart’s life experience into a book with magic. He left Lokchart’s room with this new book and then quietly came to Diagon Alley.

After casting the Doubling Charm on “The Real Lockhart” to turn it into dozens of copies, Jerry threw the copies of these books one by one at the door of the shop in Diagon Alley. Especially for the Diagon Alley branch of the Daily Prophet, he even opened the door and threw seven or eight copies inside.

Afterward, he used the Transfiguration Charm to transform into a middle-aged man, went to the Post Office, and mailed the original copy to the Ministry of Magic.
