In Jerry’s view, Legilimency is a spell used to read minds to obtain information, but he never thought that it could also be used to assist in combat.
It’s not just for magic combat, it’s also for close-quarter combat, and Legilimency is very useful. If you know how the opponent will attack you in advance, as long as your body keeps up, wouldn’t you become a master of fighting in an instant?
Jerry was an amateur in martial arts in his previous life. He knew that in close-quarter combat, anticipation is actually a very important and difficult skill.
Many boxing techniques could detect the size, length, and movement of the opponent’s strength through the sense of touch of the skin and the inner body, like predicting the opponent’s movements in advance and making a counterattack.
Sometimes if you have a strong predictive ability, you can even use the smallest force to deal with enemies that are much stronger than you.
For example, if a person much bigger than you punch you, you can predict the opponent’s attack trajectory and dodge it calmly or hit the vital point directly. A master in fighting can often do more than one fight because they can predict their movement. They can attack the vital points and knock down the opponent easily.
If Jerry has learned Legilimency, then even without magic and physical strength beyond normal people, coupled with his Refreshing, he will become a really good fighter.
At the beginning of the new semester, Jerry plunged into the study, research, and transformation of every kind of magic he could learn.
Meanwhile, the girls’ bathroom is on the second floor.
An old man with a white beard walked slowly to the toilet where Myrtle was and waved his hand to lift the spell on her.
“Ahhhh, Principal. This is the third time I’ve been immobilized by magic since the beginning of school. It’s really bad. I’ve never seen such a bad wizard!” As soon as Myrtle was back to normal, she complained to Dumbledore.
Dumbledore looked at Myrtle and shook his head helplessly, “Did you who did it to you this time?”
At first, she didn’t pay much attention to it. After all, it wasn’t the first time that this happened to Myrtle. She just shrugged it off and told Filch to be more careful when patrolling at night.
As a result, the next day, she was immobilized again. It was still the same problem; she was still locked in the toilet for several hours.
At this time, she already had some doubts in her heart. Although the wizard likes to throw Myrtle with books, it is not normal for someone to troll her with magic, and it happened twice.
She was the student who was killed when the Chamber of Secrets was opened and died in the girls’ bathroom on the second floor.
After a few days, it calmed down again. Until today, a portrait informed him that he heard footsteps on the second floor but didn’t see anyone. She rushed over immediately, and sure enough, Myrtle was immobilized again.
“I didn’t see it, but I heard a sound this time. There seems to be something coming from the sink.” Myrtle thought for a while and replied to Dumbledore.
Dumbledore had no choice but to bring Myrtle to the sink.
Walking around the sink, Dumbledore soon found a small red ball under a faucet. With his level of magic, he could tell at a glance that it was a prop ball with recording magic.
Using magic to stimulate the ball, the ball immediately uttered a Parseltongue, and then a tunnel of water pipes appeared in front of Dumbledore’s eyes. Then, the entrance to the Chamber has opened.
One month after the start of school.
At Hagrid’s hut, as soon as Jerry and the others arrived at the door of the hut. They saw Hagrid humming while drinking a butterbeer.
“Hagrid, why are you so happy?” Jerry asked with a smile.
When Hagrid saw them, a big smile appeared on his reddish face.
“Oh, you guys are here. I’m so happy today. A matter that has wronged me for almost fifty years has finally come to fruition today.”
“Is it the thing that keeps you from doing magic?” Harry looked curious.
He knew that Hagrid was forbidden to perform magic by the Ministry of Magic for some reason, and every time he cast magic, he always did it secretly.
Hagrid nodded happily, “Yes, that’s what happened. Now the problem is solved. I can finally cast magic freely again.”
Hagrid told Jerry and the others what happened to him that year. Forty-nine years ago, when Hagrid was a student at Hogwarts, the school’s rumored Chamber of Secrets was opened, and a student was killed.
At that time, Hagrid happened to raise an Acromantula secretly, A wizard reported that he was the one who opened the Chamber of Secrets. Later, Dumbledore fully defended Hagrid from being sent to Azkaban, but the Ministry of Magic also deprived him of the right to use magic for life.
But now, Dumbledore has found evidence that Hagrid was not the one who opened the Chamber of Secrets, but someone else who opened the room. It was not the Acromantula that killed the student, but a Basilisk.
So, now Hagrid can cast magic freely again.
At night, in the Slytherin common room.
Jerry told Voldemort in the diary, and said, “I misunderstood you, it turned out that the room has been opened, and the treasure inside was probably stolen by the thief forty-nine years ago. I don’t know who that guy is, and asked Hagrid said he didn’t know either since Dumbledore didn’t tell him about it.”
The diary was silent for a while before replying, “It appears so.”
At this time, Voldemort was thinking in his heart. It was Dumbledore who found a way to open the Chamber of Secrets first and killed the Basilisk inside.
It can only be said that Dumbledore is someone who he should not meddle with, even if he’s old right now.
“By the way, I have almost mastered the Legilimency you taught me. Now teach me Occlumency!”
Seeing the words written by Jerry in the diary, Voldemort couldn’t help but sigh. This Slytherin wizard named Jerry is a rare magical genius, and his talent is a bit similar to his back in the day.
