Strange things are afoot in the alchemy class



Wednesday, Hogwarts, today the headmaster’s regular alchemy class had to abandon studying the philosophers stone when the headmaster sent the whole class out of the room. The cause was a weird little skeletal thing that had somehow gotten into the room and was creeping up on a young hufflepuff girl. The poor little creature fell apart when the headmaster dropped a desk on its head.

Turns out that Gryffindor student Alex Ellion is a bit of a magnet for these things because he’s already smashed two of ¬†them before we got to see the one in class. ¬† The headmaster says they could be dangerous but so far no ones actually been hurt by them.

Many students are also wandering around half asleep, their dreams being interrupted by weird nightmares and we are starting to hear reports of centaurs being seen near the groundskeeper’s hut. Which is unusual as they usually prefer to avoid wizards. Probably best to take care and if you aren’t getting enough sleep make sure you stay close to your friends and dont go falling asleep anywhere on your own.
