Judging from the illusions and the figure’s tone, Sean feels he needs to deal with him first and then talk about the problem.
The cast hit. However, the snake didn’t move at all, and the spell passed through its body and hit the dirt ground behind. Pudding’s sharp claws also had no effect, and it felt like it had scratched through a cloud of air.
“Is it a ghost?” Sean’s eyes widened in disbelief.
However, ghosts have already lost their ability in life, and they have no other special abilities except that they can ignore most of the physical matter and occasionally stir some air. Nor is it mentioned in Mopsy Fliebert’s Animal Ghosts of Britain that animals retain or develop new special abilities.
“Pudding, get Hagrid!” Sean shouted loudly. He wanted to ensure Hagrid’s safety first.
However, before Pudding could turn his head and move, the gem on the basilisk’s forehead flickered, and its body suddenly became transparent and then disappeared into the air. Hagrid twisted unnaturally for a while and then turned into the controlled look before.
“You don’t mean what you say.” Hagrid’s dry voice was tinged with anger.
“Did I promise you anything?” Sean asked back.
Hagrid opened his mouth, “No, but you are not being cooperative.”
“It was you who first controlled my friend and hurt his pet.”
He looked embarrassed as if he didn’t know how to explain it to Sean.
This basilisk looks dull and has a low IQ, and its ability should be limited. Otherwise, the basilisk can completely threaten Sean with Hagrid’s life or directly attack him and then control his body like it controls Hagrid.
The ability is special but has no lethality. He still has to be careful and wait for the professors to come.
Sean squinted his eyes and quickly made a preliminary judge.
“I’m confused now, and I’m not good at getting in touch with others. I only thought of it this way, and I can apologize.” The basilisk said.
Sean thought for a while and said, “Tell me, what are you? Where are you from? And what do you mean by helping you? Besides, why do you keep luring me into the Forbidden Forest?”
The basilisk seemed to have a hard time digesting the questions. It pondered for a long time before saying, “I am a basilisk. I don’t know where I come from. I just woke up.”
“I suddenly became like this, and my memory is obfuscated. I don’t know what I am going to do, but I saw you today when I was wandering in the woods, and I don’t know why, but I know that you can help me.”
“Help you? What do you need help with?” Sean asked.
“I, I don’t know…” The basilisk’ voice sounded very sincere.
“Then why did you lure me into the Forbidden Forest?”
“Because there is an ancient power in the woods. I can rely on that person to talk to you instead of borrowing this person’s body.” The basilisk said honestly.
Sean unconsciously glanced in the direction of the Forbidden Forest. But he didn’t move at all. Sean wouldn’t use his own safety to test the authenticity of the basilisk’s words.
Naja lightly pecked his finger, which was ordered by Sean in order to prevent himself from being unknowingly dragged into the illusion again.
Sean said, “I don’t know you, and you seem did not need my help.”
“I don’t know…” The basilisk’s voice was full of confusion, “but I have this feeling that you can help me fulfill a certain wish, which is left by my master.”
“Who is your master, and what is your wish?”
“I don’t know…my master is called Isolt Sayre.”
“Isolt Sayre?” Sean frowned. He seemed to have seen this name somewhere.
“Come here!” Dave thought again.
The professors are coming. He and Dave’s mind differs from others, which cannot be faked. Sean regained his mind, but he didn’t show any abnormalities and was ready to continue to drag the basilisk down.
However, The basilisk that controlled Hagrid turned his head and said, “Someone’s coming. I have to go.”
“Since you want to ask for help, why do you hide?” Sean said.
“If I get caught, my master’s wish will not come true. If you want to help me, come to the center of the forest. I will always be there waiting for you.”
A ghostly basilisk crawled out of his mouth. It spat at Sean, the gemstone on its forehead flickered and disappeared.
“Wallup!” Professor McGonagall’s voice came over. She held up her wand and was riding on a horse.
Following her is Newt, who even has his suitcase. Professor McGonagall saw Hagrid standing in the same place, she jumped off the horse, and the horse turned into a piece of wood.
“Are you alright?” She waved her wand, and from the tip popped three silver cats.
The silver cats enveloped Sean and Hagrid, making them feel warm.
Sean breathed a sigh of relief and said, “I’m okay. But Hagrid is not, and the enemy is gone.”
The two professors immediately raised their spells and cast other spells. After making sure that there was no danger around them, they checked Hagrid’s situation.
“He’s okay. He just fainted. What happened?”
