Harry Potter and the Secret Treasures – Chapter 39 Rift

Chapter 39 Rift

Nobody cared about the dueling club anymore. Ivan, Ron, and Hermione pulled Harry out of the Great Hall they were followed by Colin and Ginny.

People were moving out of the way quickly like they were afraid Harry was going to get them.

Harry looked slightly puzzled, he didnt know what was going on. No explained anything to him as they dragged him to the empty Gryffindor common room.

Then Ron pushed Harry into an armchair and said, Youre a parseltongue, why didnt you tell us?

Im a what? asked Harry

parseltongue! It means you can talk to snakes.

I know I can, this is the second time Ive done it, said Harry. I did one time in a zoo when I accidentally let a big snake out and my cousin Dudley.. its a long story but I bet a lot of people can do it.

They cant, said Ron while frowning, Its not common, Harry.

Yes, it is bad! said Ginny who was sitting by Ivan.

Whats so bad about it? asked Harry, Whats wrong with everybody? Look, if I didnt tell the snake not to attack Justin then

So thats what you said to him.

Ron, what do you mean, you were there, you to Ivan, Hermione, Colin, and Ginny, you were all there, you heard me.

I only heard a hissing sound. stammered Colin, I dont know what you said.

Thats parseltongue, Colin! Its the language of snakes, explained Ron.

You said I used the language of snakes? said Harry with his eyes wide open.

Yes, none of us understood you. You could have said anything. No wonder Justin was so terrified and listening to your voice it was like you were encouraging the snake.

Yes!! nodded Colin and Ginny

Harry stared at them and said, But I didnt know I could speak another language,

Ron shook his head.

Colin and Ginnys face had a look of horror on it and Hermione sat aside and took out a book from the pile, reading it quickly while Ivan sank down in thought, Harry wondered what he was thinking. The atmosphere grew heavier and heavier.

Well, would you like to tell me that it is wrong to stop a serpent from killing Justin? shouted Harry suddenly, Justin didnt join the ghosts so what does it matter how I did it.

Great! Hermione finally spoke, she turned the book to a certain page and showed Harry, Look here it says that Slytherin could talk to snakes too, he was the first ever proven parseltongue, so the symbol of Slytherin house is a snake.

Harry opened his mouth in surprise while looking at the book in front of him.

Exactly, Harry so now the whole school will think you are the heir especially since the chamber has been opened.

But Im not, I didnt open the chamber, said Harry in a panicky tone.

I believe you, Harry! said Ginny with shallow voice.

We all believe you but it will be hard to prove it to others. said Hermione calmly, Slytherin lived over a thousand years ago for all we know you could be the heir.

Thats absurd, so thats why everyone else was avoiding me, said Harry.

Harry stood up and looked at Ivan who hadnt spoken yet and said: Ivan, you dont think Im the heir to Slytherin or that I opened the Chamber of Secrets right?

Of course not, I dont feel very surprised that you are a parseltongue.

Take it easy Harry! said Ivan Although being a parseltongue is very rare, it is not unique, there are many wizards who can do it in additions to Slytherins heirs. I can name a few if you wish.

Ivans words made Harry feel relieved but he didnt say that the wizards who were parseltongue were all evil without exception.

This doesnt really matter but what I want to know is what spell Ron used, said Ivan as his gaze turned towards Ron who stood beside him.

What, What!

Rons face turned red, It was just a disarming spell maybe my wand made it change.

Come on, Ron! said Ivan impatiently, Thats just what I said to Snape so he wouldnt ask more questions. If a broken wand could make a disarming spell mutate into such a dark magic then dark wizards would be walking around with broken wands.

What did you say? exclaimed Hermione, Dark magic?

Yes, the spell was definitely dark magic. That why snaped asked Ron if he had been in the restricted book area.

But I havent said Ron, alarmed.

Who knows! said Ivan as he stared at Ron, Maybe its not you.

I havent repeated Ron. Ron then jumped up in fury and confusion,Ivan what do you mean? Do you think Im someone else and used Polyjuice Potion to become Ron?

Ron gave a harsh laugh, Colin and Ginny were a little scared, and Harry and Hermione looked puzzled, they werent sure what Ivan really meant.

I believe he is really Ron, hesitated Hermione, Ivan you probably been too pressured by current events.

Thats right, this joke isnt funny. said Harry as he shook his head, Today must be April fools day because I saved Justin and now Im considered the heir to Slytherin and now Ron is suddenly a dark wizard.

However it is a simple task for dark wizards to control a persons mind.

What the hell do you mean?! exclaimed Ron loudly.

Where were you on Halloween and when the first attack happened, asked Ivan coldly.

I was apologizing to weeping Myrtle in the damn bathroom!

Thats one! said Ivan, Where were you when the second attack happened?

In the hospital wing with Percy because of your spell my brothers arm bones were gone.

No, you werent there!

Ivan shook his head and said, Soon after we left the hospital wing you left to and no one knew where you went.

Whats the relationship between them and me being gone! said Ron while looking a little hysterical, If students are attacked and if no one is with you when it happens then every student is suspicious because they might be the Slytherin heir.

Only you can use a broken wand to leave a corpse. said Ivan as he narrowed his eyes, Isnt that so?
