  1. “It’s no use Harry, we’re separated by a wall of rock that’s a meter thick. If we continue on, we’re bound to find Ginny, there’s only one way to go anyway.”
  2. “Alright.” In the long tunnel, there was a light ahead. Nothing too bright, but a slight glow. There were colors ahead, I had to squint to figure it out. It was Ginny. As Harry and I got closer, her features sharpened and became more clear.
  3. “This doesn’t seem right.” I said looking around to make sure the coast was clear. Harry ran towards her while I treaded lightly ready to have his back in case anything happened. We passed snake sculptures on either side of the chamber. When he reached her he shouted for her to wake. She didn’t. When I reached her, I listened to her pulse. It was slower than it should be and began to slow down more. Her breathing didn’t occur as much either. Then a student appeared from around a pillar in front of us.
  4. “Oh, she won’t wake.” He walked toward us, he didn’t exactly have that friendly atmosphere about him.
  5. “Tom, Tom Riddle. What do you mean she won’t? She‘s not-” Harry asked. The stranger, or Tom kept walking towards us.
  6. “She’s not.” He continued to speak to Harry but I had stopped listenening, Tom picked up Harry’s wand.
  7. “She’s as cold as ice.” Harry commented looking up at Tom Riddle who had his wand. “Give me my wand Tom.”
  8. “Oh, you won’t be needing it.” He said.
  9. “Listen, she’s dying fast, we need to get her to some urgent care.” I said.
  10. “We need to get her out of here.” Said Harry.
  11. “I’m afraid I can’t let you do that, you see, as poor Ginny grows weaker, I grow stronger. It was Ginny who opened the Chamber, Ginny who wrote the threatening messages and sent the basilisk to attack.”
  12. “Ginny couldn’t have, she wouldn’t.” Said Harry.
  13. “Oh but she would.” Said Tom.
  14. “Why?”
  15. “Because I told her to. You see, I can be very persuasive.” He held Harry’s wand. I was in and out of their conversation, giving Ginny CPR can use a lot of concentration. Harry and Tom began arguing. Then, he explained to us, how he’s Lord Voldemort. Tom Riddle summoned the Basilisk to attack. The Basilisk looked more like a serpent that would’ve lived in the Jurassic times. Dumbledore’s phoenix Fawkes flew in and attacked the Basilisks eye and then giving Harry the sorting hat. Harry drew the sword of Godric Gryffindor and ran up one of the sculptures to have a fair fight with the monster. I sprinted towards one of the snake sculptures on the side that began to crack and broke off a sharp piece of stone. I stabbed the serpents tail and its tail swung back and hit me, slamming me into the furthest wall in the cave. I heard his voice in my head. I was laying there, almost all energy drained, head spinning.
  16. “Some father you are.” I commented, everything was sore.
  17. “I’m not your father, he’s some oaf who was a Slytherin. I could be though, your father I mean. If, you joined me in taking down Dumbledore and becoming my head minion.”
  18. "Never"
  19. “Before you say no, I want you to know I wasn’t lying earlier about your mother being dead, or her being a Gryffindor. She was a beauty.”
  20. “How do I know your not lying?”
  21. “I’m very persuasive.” He said lastly. With that, his voice disappeared, the Basilisk was dead, Harry was unconscious and soon, so was I.
