A dozen thoughts defiled in James's mind. Lumos can be used to ward off spectral foes, he recalled. But Peeves was not really a ghost. Petrificus Totalus. That could prevent the poltergeist from raising the alarm. Yet he wasn't really... solid either, so it might not work. Besides, James didn't even have his wand.

Before he could think of anything, Morgana found the solution. Of course, the Bloody Baron, the only one who Peeves fears. However, there was a tiny flaw in the plan. "How do we find him?" he murmured. The castle was huge, he could be anywhere. 

"Why the gaunt face, Gaunty?" Peeves sniggered, interrupting their scheme. "And here is a riddle for you, Riddy. Three little things, in the dark they plot. They still don't know, they are getting caught." he chanted. 

With one last annoying sneer the poltergeist turned around. "GAUNTY AND RIDDY LOOSE IN THE CORRIDORS! THE DARK ONES ARE BACK! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!" His cry echoed down the empty hallways. Someone was bound to hear it. They didn't have much time, yet James had no idea what to do. For a moment, he thought about running the other way, but that didn't seem like a very promising option either.

Morgana thought quickly. The Bloody Baron hung in the dungeons, not several stories up. She could try to make an empty threat about how Slytherins and the Baron got along extremely well and he'd curse Peeves for making his house lose points because he called on them... But she hardly thought that to be the truth. The Bloody Baron couldn't care less, probably.

She looked ominously up at him when he called her 'Gaunty'. Honestly? Calling people names? Was that the best he had? But then he said the 'riddle' and she knew what was about to happen the second before it did. She closed her eyes annoyed when he shouted through the castle that they were out. But then she frowned again. Dark Ones? Honestly? Just because of their names? She felt a grim sensation of wanting to physically hurt that goddamned poltergeist, but she pushed it to the back of her mind when the poltergeist did a few back-flips in the air.

She looked at the two others. Should they keep going the same way, or should they turn around and find some other way? Or maybe find a room to hide in? "Let's just run the same way and hope for something that most likely is  a futile hope that we get ourselves to the common rooms without getting caught," she quickly said, hoping they'd agree, even though the chances of not getting caught were slim.

Aylee bit her lip as Morgana muttered something about the Blood Baron. Of course, she thought. Peeves is supposed to be scared of the Baron... but where can we find him? He could be anywhere in the castle right now. She heard James echo her thoughts. Realizing that she was still holding her Haribo packet, Aylee immediately put it back in her satchel.

Suddenly, Peeves started saying a riddle. Oh, no... Aylee thought, biting her lip again. Without warning, the poltergeist started screaming and yelling. Gaunty? Riddy? Dark Ones? she thought, not understanding. Why does Peeves think that the Dark Ones are back because of some student's surnames? And we are not plotting! she added hotly.

She looked at James and Morgana, not knowing what to do. Morgana suggested something, but Aylee didn't hear her very well because of Peeve's ranting. All she heard was 'run' and 'caught'. Suddenly, an idea came to her. Biting her lip again, Aylee reached into her satchel and dug out her wand. Please work... she thought.

"Immobulis!" she exclaimed, pointing her wand at Peeves.

Lucia was walking through the corridors of Hogwarts, working a night-shift. She was wandering around when she heard some ruckus some floors up. Lucia frowned, recognizing the voice of Peeves. That poltergeist was creating havoc at all places at all times and it was already starting to annoy her. But when she heard the words being shouted, she perked up instantly. Students? Out of bed?

Taking a short passage to the left, then a longer one to the right, she could hear soft, silent, but urgent voices. And then a spell. Immobulus. She sighed and hurried on until she saw the outline of three students. And, silent as a cat, she was standing in front of them. "Ms. Walters, Ms. Gaunt, Mr. Riddle. Care to explain why I find you out here in the corridors so late at night?" she asked, quirking a delicate eyebrow at the three students in turn, also throwing a glance at an immovable Peeves.

A sight of relief escaped James mouth when Peeves' shouting suddenly stopped and the poltergeist got frozen in mid-air. He flashed a grateful glance at Aylee, and raised his eyebrows in admiration of her spell.

However, the respite proved short-lived. Not a moment had passed that Professor Henley surfaced from the obscurity. Her usual kind smile was replaced with a stricter expression when she inquired about the reasons of their nightly excursion.

"We..." James mumbled, but something in the professor's gaze made him completely forget the excuse they had agreed on using. Instead, he turned towards the two others for help.

Aylee's lips curled into a relieved smile as her spell worked and Peeve's shouting stopped. She put her wand back in her satchel when she saw someone step out from the shadows. It was Professor Henley, a new teacher. Okay, NOW we're done for, Aylee thought as the Professor demanded an explanation.

She could see that James forgot the excuse that they were going to be using, and so did Aylee. The worry about getting caught caused her to forget the lie. "Um..." she said, looking at her two friends. "James was sleepwalking and Morgana got lost before curfew. And... and Morgana got frustrated, yelled out, making James wake up. And I heard her shout from the common room and decided to investigate the sound. T-then we got lost in the corridors and couldn't find our way back to our common rooms."

Lying wasn't Aylee's area of expertise but the excuse might work. But they were still in trouble and they were still going to be punished. She bit her lip, staring at the Professor's face.

Morgana was relived when Peeves froze mid-air. She wondered when she would learn a spell like that. She gave a smile to Aylee, and she was about to say 'that was close', when a woman appeared in front of them. Professor Henley. The Herbology teacher. Not being one who took Herbology, Morgana really knew next to nothing about the woman, but the strictness of her face and voice told Morgana that they were in trouble.

Morgana nodded along to what Aylee said, and when she was done explaining, Morgana waited in silence for the professor's verdict.

Lucia looked expectantly at James as he was about to say something, but stopped short. First sign of someone who was either frightened or about to lie. Or just both. Aylee quickly took up his lost sentence and explained what had happened, her voice small. Of course, the reason she was talking so lowly could simply be because of the authority and they knew their reason was flawed, be it true or false. As it was, in a great castle like Hogwarts, it was possible, she supposed.

She looked at the three of them. "Be that as it may, Ms. Walters, your reason, however noble, is breaking the rules. Ms. Gaunt and Mr. Riddle, you both seem to have a rather reasonable explanation," she said softly, her face softening with it. She sighed and looked gravely at them again. "But, I will not vouch for them and all three of you will serve detention in Greenhouse one, helping me pluck the manata flowers. Also, five points will be deducted from each of you," she added.

She looked at the three of them, and then up at Peeves. "Though I am tempted to give whoever cast that spell five points. Not many thinks straight or gets that poltergeist to shut up so easily," she said with a shrug, giving them a friendly smile. She looked around.

"Now, come with me, and I will take you to your respected houses. I do believe the Ravenclaw Tower is the closest," she said, looking at a portrait down the hall that she knew would open and take them to the floor beneath the common room of the Ravenclaws.

Aylee bit her lip as Professor Henley took away five points from each of them and gave them detention. Now Ravenclaw has no points! And what are manata flowers? she thought. Then she felt really guilty. I shouldn't have come. She looked at her two friends and then looked down at her feet.

When she heard the Professor say something about the spell, Aylee looked up and smiled a little. "Thanks, Professor," she mumbled, almost to herself. She had just won Ravenclaw five points for making Peeves shut up.

But when Professor Henley escorted them back to their common rooms, Aylee still felt like it was her fault that they got caught. "I'm so sorry," she muttered, hoping that James or Morgana would hear her.

Detention!? And ten points deducted from Ravenclaw?
For an instant, James thought he was still in his nightmare. It was so unfair. In his entire life, never had he been given detention, in Hogwarts or his muggle school. And never had he lost any points. And now, both at the same time. And for something he couldn't even control.

However, instead of voicing his discontent, he only lowered his gaze and silently followed the professor as she guided them back to their common room. After passing through a portrait, they emerged into a familiar hallway not far from Ravenclaw Tower. When Aylee apologized, he wanted to retort that she had nothing to be sorry for, if anything it was his fault, him and his stupid sleepwalking. But he remained wordless.

Morgana frowned slightly. That was a bit unfair... Sure, she guessed that she deserved it, and Aylee as well, but James? Honestly, sleepwalking wasn't something a person could control. She wanted to say something about it, but she didn't, as she didn't want to lose more points from Slytherin. Honestly...

The detention meant nothing to her, really. Having to spend some time doing some work wasn't something she hated. She wasn't particularly fond of plants, though, but she was sure she'd survive. After all, she was a second year, so the plant couldn't be too dangerous. Had it only been Aylee and James, or just James, the plant could have been more dangerous, but as she was only twelve, there were rules to how dangerous a plant the professor could show them.

Morgana shook her head. "Not your fault," she said to Aylee, not understanding why the girl would blame herself. Really, it was her fault as much as Aylee. But perhaps she ought to apologize to James? She decided not to, and just let it go. It would sting for a while, but it would probably blow over in no time. Morgana actually didn't bother to care about it anymore, already.

But, if anything, at least Aylee gained five more points for her house. Morgana followed the others and soon found herself near the steps to what had to lead to the Ravenclaw Tower. They ascended them and soon stood before what had to be the entrance to the common room.

As soon as they stepped onto the landing preceding the entrance to their common room, a disembodied voice resonated from the eagle-shaped knocker. "Brothers and sisters I have none but this man's father is my father's son. Who is the man?"

"My son." James affirmed after a few moments of reflection. In response, the door slowly opened with a faint clicking sound. "Thank you" he managed to mutter behind his back before penetrating Ravenclaw Tower. After all, even though she had inflicted punishment upon them, Professor Henley had also helped them safely regain their common room. "Good night." he added grimly to Aylee as the two split, heading for their respective dormitories.

Aylee gave Morgana a shaky smile as James answered the riddle. "See you around, then," she said quietly before following James into the common room. She heard James say 'good night' to her but she just nodded at him, suddenly feeling too tired to talk. Great, and NOW I'm tired, after walking through the corridors, making a poltergeist shut up and lose five points and detention. Lovely, Aylee thought to herself as she went upstairs into the girl's dormitories.

Lucia nodded at the two of the Ravenclaws as they neared the common room. James answered the riddle presented. Funny that. James answering a riddle. She was glad she was good at poker faces. Honestly, she really needed to get a bit more serious with the teaching position.

"You're welcome. Good night," she said softly as the two of them walked inside. She then looked at the Slytherin. "Now for the Slytherin common room, then," Lucia said and set off, the girl trailing behind her.

Lucia knew that the Slytherin was rather displeased with her, but she didn't let it get to her. After all, she would have to get used to that, or the student body would eat her alive. She walked over to a picture of a mermaid and pulled out her wand, non-verbally casting the necessary spell, making sure the girl wouldn't know which. The professors needed their secrets.

They found themselves in a sideroom near the entrance hall, and they descended the steps into the dungeons. Then they reached the bleak, bare wall, and Morgana said the password. "Good night then, Ms. Gaunt. I'll see you in detention," she said softly, giving the girl a smile, knowing it wouldn't help much.

Morgana followed professor Henley in silence after having seen James and Aylee off. Honestly, Morgana was a bit tired now, which was a good thing. She looked straight forward, memorizing the path she was walking on, so she could walk there when she wanted to get to the Ravenclaw Tower. If there would ever come a time when she wanted to go to the tower, of course. She couldn't think of a reason why at the moment, but probably to meet Aylee or something, if it be the case.

They were soon standing in front of the pale wall in the dungeon and she muttered the password gloomily. "Merona," she said, before giving a look at the professor. "Indeed we will. Good night," she said, in a rather stiff tone. She didn't really know why, but she didn't like professor Henley at the moment. Maybe just a bad start, but the point deduction might have been a bit more hurtful than she had thought it would be.

She walked through the wall and into the empty common room, and straight up to the girls' dormitory. She laid down on her bed and looked into the roof. Losing points? Not her favorite sport. But whatever. She honestly couldn't dwell on it too much. It was just stupid to do so. Nothing would change it. So she closed her eyes and fell asleep.
