Hermione's head was pounding. She opened her eyes and found herself lying on the ground in a hallway in the dungeons. She pushed herself up and leaned against a dimly lit wall, feeling the stone imprint on her cheek. She rubbed her temple and glanced at her surroundings. Candles barely illuminating the stone walls, long hallway, closed doors, boy on the floor.
Boy on the floor?
A few feet away she saw Draco Malfoy lying on the floor much as she had just moments before.
"What the hell?" she said to herself, leaning her aching head against the cold stone.
Suddenly it all came back to her. Ernie was shot. Pansy was shot. Ernie was dead. And now she was in the dungeons with Draco Malfoy. She stood up and was temporarily blinded by a head rush. She heard a moan and looked down to see Malfoy regain his consciousness.
"What the…?" he grunted, rubbing his head and sitting up. He glanced up to see Hermione staring down at him. He stood up. "How did we get down here? Where is everyone?"
"I don't know. Someone must have taken us down here," Hermione guessed.
"What happened?" he asked.
"Some sort of gas was released to knock us out," she said.
Draco looked confused.
"Remember that smell before we all blacked out? Well that was some gas," she explained. "Unfortunately I don't know what it was."
"How do you know it wasn't some spell or something?" Draco questioned.
"It was a gas."
"A Muggle gas. Notice the pattern?" Draco deducted. "Muggle gas, Muggle gun."
Harry and Ron had been awake long enough to discover that they were trapped on the first floor.
"What the hell is going on here?" Ron cried, hitting the wall.
"We're trapped," Harry stated simply.
"Yes, I know that – but why!" Ron yelled.
"Ron, I have no idea. Whoever did this to us was the person who put the gun on the ground and shot Ernie and knocked us all out with gas," Harry explained as calmly as he could.
"What are you talking about with all this weird Muggle stuff?" Ron asked, confused.
Harry sighed. "I don't know. This is so weird… Everything they've done to us has been a Muggle form of… Hurting people."
"Well we can't use our wands so maybe they can't use theirs either," Ron suggested.
"Yeah, but they have to know all these Muggle forms of… However you categorize all this," Harry said.
There was silence between the two boys for a minute until Ron turned and yanked roughly on the nearest door.
"We have to try all these doors," Ron said, pulling away from the doorknob.
"There are like a hundred classrooms on this floor," Harry responded. "There's no way we can try all of them and they're all going to be locked anyway."
"Would you rather die?" Ron asked, staring at his friend in a slightly frightening way.
Harry licked his lips. "Fine… We can try all these doors."
Blaise and Lavender found themselves on the second floor in a similar predicament to the others.
"What the fuck!" Lavender shrieked, yanking on the nearest door with all her might.
"Lavender, stop!" Blaise cried. "That's not going to do anything! We're stuck here."
She shrieked and then started sobbing into her hands. Blaise didn't quite know how to deal with the situation.
On the third floor, Pansy Parkinson and Hannah Abbot were discovering themselves to be stuck as were Seamus Finnegan and Dean Thomas on the fourth floor. All ten of them were trapped in pairs on their floors surrounded by locked doors and marble and stone walls dimly lit by flickering candles.
Draco and Hermione explored the entire dungeon area of the school before really believing that they were truly trapped.
"This is AWFUL!" Draco cried. "Disgusting! Why is this happening to me? What could I possibly have done to deserve being trapped with you in the dungeons of Hogwarts? Did I fall asleep and forget to wake up and this is just some terrible nightmare?"
"No! It's not!" Hermione retorted impatiently. "We're stuck here. And I don't know why and I'm starting to get worried."
Draco glared at her. "How about we split up or something?"
"Split up? What good will that do? Do you want this serial killer to come and get you?"
"Well I don't want to be stuck with you!" With that, Draco turned on his heel and marched off down the hallway.
Hermione slumped against the wall, defeated. She put her head in the hands, realization pouring over her with every breath she took. She was trapped in the school with a killer. Her eyes started to water and a tear slowly dropped from her eye to the cold stone floor with a small splatter. Something burning dropped on her head. She squealed and jumped up and away from the wall, grabbing her head. All she felt was wax. A candle she was sitting beneath had dripped on her head.
She sighed and decided she may as well just wander around the dungeons. Maybe if she kept moving this killer wouldn't find her. Eventually she came across something peculiar. A list was taped to the wall in one of the hallways.
1 – Draco Malfoy and Hermione Granger
2 – Ron Weasley and Harry Potter
3 – Blaise Zabini and Lavender Brown
4 – Pansy Parkinson and Hannah Abbot
5 – Seamus Finnegan and Dean Thomas
Hermione studied the list for a minute. She guessed that everyone must have been partnered up accordingly. She also realized that everyone was partnered up by one pureblood with one Muggle born except for Ron and Harry; both purebloods. Then she realized that this was probably the order in which everyone was going to die. So she screamed and started running.
Draco had only been walking for about five minutes when it happened. He heard a noise behind him and spun around. A person was standing a bit down the hall dressed completely in Muggle clothing with a mask over their head that exposed only their eyes and mouth. Suddenly the lights went out and Draco turned and started running. He was knocked over soon and he felt something rough wrap around his neck. He tried desperately to pull whatever was around his neck off of him. He kicked blindly in front of him until he finally hit something. He heard a muffled noise and the light sound of someone running.
"D-draco? H-hello…?" he heard someone call out into the darkness.
He finally was able to pull the rope off of around his neck and the lights came back on.
"Draco, what happened?" Hermione was next to him. She didn't wait for an answer. "Listen, we have to get out of here. I found a list that said everyone and who they were partnered with and the order that we were all going to die in. What just happened to you?"
"Someone tried to kill me," he managed to let out. He stood up.
Hermione let out a small whimper. "Did you see what they looked like?"
"They were covered in Muggle clothes and a mask," he described.
Hermione pressed her palms to her eyelids. "Oh my God," she moaned. "Oh my God. Why is this happening? Why is this happening!"
"Let's just try and get out of here –"
"Newsflash, Draco, we can't get out of here!" Hermione screamed. "We're stuck here! Until we get killed by this mysterious person!" Tears were streaming down her face.
"Calm down! Do you want to just give up and wait around like sitting ducks?" Draco responded. "No. Let's figure out how to get out of here!"
A/N: Blah, blah, I know it was shitty. But I'm trying to not make everything happen in one chapter because then this will be like two chapters long. Well it's probably going to be like four anyway. Oh well. If you review I'll give you Degrassi on DVD and screenshots of Peter that I took!
