Horcrux Hunt! - Indexed

Horcrux Hunt

Image

Confused, you look at the note. What is going on? Was this really intended for you? You turn it over; on the back of the paper is, clearly, your full name, no mistaking it. And it does really seem like the Headmaster's handwriting...
You gather up your books and leave the library in a rush, followed by an angry look from Madam Pince (how dare you move at such a speed in the library!). You don't pay her any attention though - you have more important matters on your mind. You make your way to your common room, ignoring any friends trying to get your attention. They can wait. If this note is real, it sounds like you'd have a brilliant story to tell them when you get back.
As soon as you reach your dormitory, you drop your book bag on your bed and pull your winter cloak, woollen hat, house scarf and fingerless gloves from your trunk and put them on. You snatch up your dragonhide gloves and put them in your inner cloak pocket. You're already halfway to the exit of your common room when you realise you've left your wand in your bag, so you retrieve it and go on your way to the Headmaster's office. On your way there you get quite a few weird looks because of your getup - most people wouldn't say it's cold enough for the clothes you're wearing - but once again, you ignore everyone and just proceed towards your goal.

Finally, you reach the statue of the Phoenix. Only then do you realise you don't know the password. "Eh... hello?" you try, and the statue opens an eye to look at you.
"Name?" it asks.
Adrenaline surging through your body, you give your name. It immediately gives the faintest of nods, and turns around, revealing a spiral staircase. Shaking from head to toe you step on it and let it take you up to the Headmaster's study.
When you enter, you see Rhynn standing at the window, stroking the head of her screech owl. She hears you enter and turns around.
"Good, you came. Sit down, please."
You do as you're told and look up at her expectantly.
"We've never told you this before, because we wanted you to have as normal a time at school as possible. Now I realise I should maybe have told you sooner, because honestly I don't quite know where to start..." You're now incredibly confused. What in Merlin's name is she talking about?
"A few months before you were born, a prophecy was made. It foretold the birth of a child on exactly your day of birth, which would be instrumental in ridding the world of evil. You do not know this, but you have a special power which allows you to feel Horcruxes.
Now, as you know, dark wizards are out there trying to take over. With my secret network, I have found out that their leader has created horcruxes. Seven of them, to be exact. I also know that at least one of them is currently inside this school. I have been able to determine roughly where, but I need your help to find it."
You feel this is a lot to take in at once. All of a sudden you're somehow special, part of a prophecy, and instrumental in defeating evil? It sounds like a rather far-fetched story. But you really don't feel like going back and doing your homework right now, so you decide to just go with it. She is the Headmaster, after all. Even if this is a prank, it's bound to be a great one.
"Will you help me? I might be able to eventually do it on my own, but it would be so much quicker with you!"
She looks at you for an answer. Slowly, you nod. "I'll help," you reply.
It seems as if a huge weight is lifted off Rhynn's shoulders. "Thank you. Well then... follow me, please."
You get up and follow her. She leads you out of her office and up several flights of stairs, to a part of the school you've never been to. After several more staircases and two secret passageways you never even knew the existence of, the two of you are at a very narrow door in a far corner of the castle. The Headmaster opens it and steps inside, holding the door open for you. For a moment you're blinded by the bright red, green, blue and yellow lights coming from four stained glass windows. After letting your eyes adjust for a moment, you see that you're in a very small, circular room, obviously in one of the smaller towers of the castle. The stained glass windows depict each of the four founders with their house animal. They're absolutely beautiful and instantly feel calm.
Headmaster Rhynn steps forward, and looks up at the founder of your house.
"It is time," she speaks. "Follow me and please stay very close behind me. This is where it gets dangerous." She then enters a small opening which appeared in the wall. Logic tells you it should lead outside, but you can see a long, narrow hallway stretch in front of you. You take a deep breath, light your wand with a quick Lumos, and follow after Rhynn.
