Harry, Key, and the Mystery of the Chamber of secrets

Chapter 8

They run to Abigail and Hagrid.

"What are you two doing here?" asked Hagrid.

"We had an unfortunate incident with the floo powder and ended up here", said Key, with a nervous smile.

"It sure looks like it, don't worry I'll get you all cleaned off", said Abigail.

Abigail took two flowers from her pocket, crushed them, turned the dust into a pink aura that cleans Harry and Key.

"Thank you, Abigail", said Key.

"Thank you", said Harry.

"Your Welcome", said Abigail.

So, we walked back to the Weasleys.

During the walk, we figure out that Hagid was getting Flesh-Eatin' Slug Repellent for the school to protect the cabbages.

Abigail was having a meeting with an old friend that is an inventor and doesn't use that much magic, her friend also is a fae.

Harry and Key tell Abigail and Hagrid what happened during the summer.

"Those lousy muggles", said Hagrid.

"I knew they wouldn't give you an easy time", said Abigail.

Harry, Key, Hagrid, and Abigail meet Hermione, who's with the Weasley's.

"Oh, thank goodness, you are okay", said Mrs. Weasley.

Mrs. Weasley hugs Key and Harry.

"I'm glad, you are okay, but please don't just dive into something like that carelessly", Makai asks, sweetly.

"I will try", said Key.

"Well, gotta be off", said Hagrid, he strode away, head and shoulder as taller than anyone else in the packed street.

Mrs. Weasley has a bag with her.

"Guess who I saw in Borgin and Burkes?" Harry asked Ron and Hermione as they climbed the Gringotts steps.

"Malfoy and his father", Key answers.

"Did Lucius Malfoy buy anything?" said Mr. Weasley sharply behind them.

"No, he was selling—" said Harry.

"So he's worried," said Mr. Weasley with grim satisfaction. "Oh, I'd love to get Lucius Malfoy for something…"

"You be careful, Arthur," said Mrs. Weasley sharply as they were bowed into the bank by a goblin at the door. "That family's trouble. Don't go biting off more than you can chew—"

"So you don't think I'm a match for Lucius Malfoy?" said Mr. Weasley indignantly, but he was distracted almost at once by the sight of Hermione's parents, who were standing nervously at the counter that ran all along the great marble hall, waiting for Hermione to introduce them.

"But you're Muggles!" said Mr. Weasley delightedly. "We must have a drink! What's that you've got there? Oh, you're changing Muggle money. Molly, look!" He pointed excitedly at the ten-pound notes in Mr. Granger's hand.

Key and Makai find Mr. Weasley's interest in Muggles is odd.

"Meet you back here," Ron said to Hermione as the Weasleys and Harry were led off to their underground vaults by another Gringotts goblin.

The vaults were reached by means of small, goblin-driven carts that sped along miniature train tracks through the bank's underground tunnels.

Harry and Key enjoyed the breakneck journey down to the Weasleys' vault, but felt dreadful, far worse than he had in Knock-turn Alley, when it was opened.

There was a very small pile of silver Sickles inside, and just one gold Galleon. Mrs. Weasley felt right into the corners before sweeping the whole lot into her bag.

Harry and Key feel guilty when they reach their vault. They tried to block the contents from view as they hastily shoved handfuls of coins into a leather bag.

Back outside on the marble steps, they all separated.

Percy muttered vaguely about needing a new quill.

Fred and George had spotted their friend from Hogwarts, Lee Jordan.

Mrs. Weasley and Ginny were going to a secondhand robe shop.

Mr. Weasley was insisting on taking the Grangers off to the Leaky Cauldron for a drink.

Makai and Key decide to spend some time together.

"We'll all meet at Flourish and Blotts in an hour to buy your school books," said Mrs. Weasley, setting off with Ginny. "And not one step down Knockturn Alley!" she shouted at the twins' retreating backs.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione strolled off along the winding, cobbled street.

The bag of gold, silver, and bronze jangling cheerfully in Harry's pocket was clamoring to be spent, so he bought three large strawberry-and-peanut-butter ice creams, which they slurped happily as they wandered up the alley, examining the fascinating shop windows.

Ron gazed longingly at a full set of Chudley Cannon robes in the windows of Quality Quidditch Supplies until Hermione dragged them off to buy ink and parchment next door.

In Gambol and Japes Wizarding Joke Shop, they met Fred, George, and Lee Jordan, who were stocking up on Dr. Filibuster's Fabulous Wet-Start, No-Heat Fireworks, and in a tiny junk shop full of broken wands, lopsided brass scales, and old cloaks covered in potion stains they found Percy, deeply immersed in a small and deeply boring book called Prefects Who Gained Power.

"A study of Hogwarts prefects and their later careers," Ron read aloud off the back cover. "That sounds fascinating…"

"Go away," Percy snapped.

"'Course, he's very ambitious, Percy, he's got it all planned out… He wants to be Minister of Magic…" Ron told Harry and Hermione in an undertone as they left Percy to it.

Key and Makai were entering a Fae cake shop.

"Welcome to my cake shop, what shall I get you?" asked The man.

The man has short brown hair, white skin, wearing casual clothes with an apron, and white shoes named Lun.

"Ice cream cake for me", said Key, eagerly.

"I'll have the same", said Makai.

"How about I bring a big cake you can share?" Lun suggested. "What two flavors?"

"Vanilla and chocolate", said Key and Makai.

"Any toppings?" Key asks Makai.

"No thanks", said Makai.

Key smiles.

A few minutes later, Lun brings an ice cream cake in a container and gives it to Key and Makai.

"Young love, how precious", Lun sighed.

Key and Makai get the ice cream cake together.

"I still can't believe that we have so much in common", said Makai.

"I agree, it is odd, we have so much in common", said Key.

Key whispers to Makai "You are still thinking about that dream".

"How could I not, I mean we just met yet our vision shows us becoming a couple, which is absolutely ridiculous, since", said Makai.

"Well, obviously our vision is testing us to see if we will jump into a relationship or take it slow and steady", said Key.

"So, we won't ignore, instead we will try to become stronger friends and then go away from the friend zone to maybe a relationship", said Makai.

"Perfect, then it's set in stone", said Key.

Makai and Key smile.
