Sean had left Snape’s office and went to Newt’s office again. After a pleasant time taking care of the magical beasts, he walked towards the Great Hall.
“Ugh, Professor Scamander only has food for them.” Sean was hungry and quickened his pace.
Although Professor Scamander said that wizards could also eat some foods for the animals, he even demonstrated it himself, but Sean still declined the offer. After all, not everyone has the courage to throw a wriggling unknown bug into their mouth.
Walking to the entrance of the hall, Sean saw the Gryffindor trio, who seemed to have just returned and were talking about something. Sean stepped forward to say hello, and the three immediately came up to him.
“Sean, have you finished your things with Professor Snape?” Harry asked.
“Yeah, I’ve been picking Flobberworm the whole day. It was a total pain.” Sean sighed helplessly.
“Has Snape been in the office the whole time?” Harry asked quickly.
Seeing their expression, Sean nodded suspiciously, “Yes, he watched me and taunted me from time to time.”
The trio looked at each other, and Sean saw the puzzled look in their eyes. Sean was surprised about what they were doing.
“Why did you ask that?”
Harry looked around, pulled Sean to a corner where no one was around, and said quietly, “We just saw Snape outside.”
“Professor Snape? When?”
“Just now, when we crossed the bridge, we saw Snape coming out of the Forbidden Forest. I’m confident that’s him.” Harry said firmly.
Sean patted his starving stomach. According to the time he left, if Snape went to the Forbidden Forest, it makes sense as he had been with Professor Scamander for a while.
He thought for a while, “I didn’t just come back from there, so maybe he went to the Forbidden Forest to do something after I left.”
“But there’s something wrong with Snape.” Harry said with great certainty as if he had some news.
“Why do you say that?”
“Well, actually, I have something that my dad gave me,” Harry looked around and spoke quickly, “It’s an invisibility cloak.”
“Invisibility cloak?” Although he had known it for a long time, Sean pretended to be shocked.
Harry nodded, “After you told us about Nicolas Flamel last time, I was thinking about checking the information about the Sorcerer’s Stone.”
“And then you sneaked into the forbidden area of the library?” Sean guessed what Harry was going to say at once.
“Yes,” Harry adjusted his glasses, “and when I was rummaging in the forbidden area, I happened to bump into Snape.”
“Snape? In the forbidden area?” Sean asked suspiciously.
“That’s right. He almost discovered me. After he left, I saw that Snape was looking for information about the Sorcerer’s Stone.”
Is Snape looking for information about the Sorcerer’s Stone? What was he looking for? Is he doing Tom Riddle a favor? After all, the forbidden area in the Hogwarts library is probably not open to Nurmengard professors.
Harry must have sneaked in in the middle of the night. As a professor at Hogwarts, Snape has the right to access the forbidden area, but he does not need to go to the library in the middle of the night.
Sean narrowed his eyes slightly. Could it be that Tom disguises as Snape?
If he is discovered, Tom will have no problem as long as he acts as Snape. Whether Snape is loyal to Dumbledore or Grindelwald, he is still a Death Eater.
However, Dumbledore must know all this. Why did he let Tom be in here? To get him to take the bait he put?
This is what Sean has always wondered about. If Dumbledore has determined that Tom is Voldemort, why didn’t he join forces with Grindelwald to get rid of him? Does Tom have something in him that he wants?
There’s just too much for this.
Harry thought he had discovered a big secret and continued, “As for Professor Riddle, he is probably also thinking about the Sorcerer’s Stone.”
“How did you know?”
“Just a guess.”
Harry was a little excited, “Sean, think about it. Professor Snape and Riddle entered Hogwarts at the same time, and one of them is probably the mastermind.”
Sean spread his hands, “It makes sense. You should go and tell Professor Dumbledore about it.”
“We can’t get in touch with him.” Harry suddenly became frustrated.
“I think Professor Dumbledore knows everything in the castle, so you don’t have to worry about anything.” Sean advised. He was worried that Harry, after the invisibility cloak, will do something stupid.
Could this be Dumbledore’s plan again? Like training Harry or something.
When he was in Nurmengard, he saw a piece of paper in Grindelwald’s office with the names of Harry and Neville written on it.
Harry just nodded, but judging from the way he looked, he probably didn’t listen. Sean can only express his inability to do anything.
After saying goodbye to them, Sean went to the hall, where Hermione was already sitting at the long table.
“I didn’t see you at noon. Didn’t Snape let you have lunch?” Hermione asked with a frown when she saw him.
“Well, no. He didn’t have lunch either.” Sean sat next to Hermione, waiting for dinner to appear.
Hermione closed the book hard and said dissatisfiedly, “I’m going to tell Professor Flitwick. The punishment is unreasonable, and you are not allowed to eat lunch.”
“Forget it. Professor Flitwick probably can’t handle this, and I understand why he did that.”
“You’re just too nice!” Hermione was also not satisfied with Sean’s attitude. “What did you understand?”
On the plate, a sumptuous dinner finally appeared. Sean hurriedly took some to the plate, raised his knife and fork, and winked at Hermione, “It’s just a misunderstanding between me and him. Well, now that has been settled. Let’s just eat this now while we have it.”
Hearing his laidback response, she suddenly didn’t want to talk to Sean anymore.
