Rubik's Cube of Heavens - Chapter 92
“That’s what happened, Mr. Headmaster.”
In Headmaster’s office, Hagrid cautiously reported what happened in the forbidden forest to Dumbledore in detail.
After listening to it, Dumbledore pondered for a moment and then thought of something. He looked up and said to Hagrid, “Okay, Hagrid, I promise you, I will take care of this matter.”
“Thank you so much, Mr. Headmaster!” Hagrid was so moved that he pinched the corner of his clothes with both hands and bowed slightly to Dumbledore.
“No need for that, but Hagrid…” Dumbledore kindly waved his hand and then said with some hesitation, “Maybe… can you negotiate with their leader?”
Hagrid’s reaction was a little slow. He thought about it and understood what Dumbledore meant.
“That’s right.” Dumbledore nodded slowly. “Let me think… Aragog, right?”
“Yes, yes!” Hagrid nodded, again and again, a look of joy on his face. He was happy that Dumbledore could remember the name ‘Aragog’.
“It seems that I am not old and confused.” Dumbledore made a little joke and then said, “I understand some of the situations in the Forbidden Forest. There were many creatures that could communicate with me. Acromantula’s ethnic group developed too quickly. It seems that it has threatened the life of other ethnic groups in the Forbidden Forest.”
“No, no! Mr. Headmaster!” Hagrid was a little anxious and quickly explained, “I have warned ‘Aragog’ before! It will not let his descendants hunt those that can communicate! You have to believe me!”
“Don’t be anxious.” Dumbledore slowly comforted him, “Of course, I believe you. I am just worried that there are too many descendants of ‘Aragog’. It is inevitable that there will be disobedience… So, I hope that you can represent Hogwarts and negotiate with them again. You can think that this is just a formality.”
Hagrid heaved a sigh of relief when he heard this and hurriedly nodded in agreement…
The chase last night was too tense, so Coven and the other two honestly stayed in the castle for three days.
A few days ago, Coven was already used to the absorption of high-level nutrition, and he was also used to the feeling of his body quickly becoming stronger. During these sudden three days, he couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable.
The twins’ situation was also similar.
Before this, George and Fred had already set up their ambitions on the first day they earned their ‘pocket money’. They planned to open a shop about ‘pranks’ after graduation.
If they wanted to open a shop in Diagon Alley, they would need around 1,300 galleons.
A few days ago, they had collected a total of two mugs of venom. Because this matter could not be told to their parents, the twins could only sell the venom from the ‘black market’ channel after the holiday.
In this way, the price of the two bottles of poison would be severely lowered by the buyer. At most, it could be sold for eight or nine hundred gold – Galleon.
Therefore, they were still short of 400 gold – Galleon, which was exactly the price of a whole bottle of venom.
With all kinds of coincidences, the twins also needed to go to the forbidden forest and encounter a few Acromantula.
At the dining table, Coven and the twins sat opposite each other.
After dinner, the three of them looked at each other in tacit understanding and immediately understood each other’s thoughts.
After the curfew time, the three figures impatiently left the castle and stepped into the Forbidden Forest.
However, just as they entered less than a hundred meters into the Forbidden Forest, a shout suddenly rang out, “Who is there!”
The footsteps of Coven and the other two suddenly stopped, and the twins almost subconsciously turned around to run away.
However, this time, Coven did not take the lead to retreat, nor did he instruct the twins on what to do.
Instead, he was stunned there.
The reason for this was because Coven had already heard whose voice it was from the shout. After several conversations, how could he not remember Dumbledore’s voice?
“Don’t run…” Coven reached out and grabbed the twins who were about to leave. He said helplessly, “The periphery of the forbidden forest is too empty. We can’t run away.”
When Fred heard this, he immediately pulled out his wand and quickly chanted a spell in a low voice, adding a spell for the three of them to eliminate the footsteps and smell.
In the end, Fred used the ‘Illusion Spell’ he learned from Coven to add an illusion to the position of the three people and disguised them as trees.
Coven looked at Fred, who was constantly busy and shook his head with a wry smile. He did not say anything.
Just as Fred’s Illusion Spell ‘was about to take effect, Dumbledore walked quickly from the forbidden forest.
Finally, Dumbledore stopped about eight meters away from Coven and the other two.
There was no search in his line of sight. Dumbledore looked directly at the tree that Coven and the other two had created.
Seeing this, Coven sighed in his heart. He knew that Dumbledore was a Master Legilimency, so in front of him, there was no effect on invisibility spells, Disillusionment Charm, the invisibility cloak, and so on.
After all, as long as Dumbledore used Legilimency, he would know clearly where the people were.
If Coven were to act alone, he might be able to rely on the ‘brain sealing curse’ to avoid Dumbledore’s detection, but there were still the twins beside him. The two of them could not block Dumbledore’s detection.
Sure enough, after Dumbledore stopped, he stared at the three of them and said in a complaining tone, “Please understand this old man… In order to catch you, I haven’t been able to sleep well for three days. So, can I ask you to come out? The naughty twins of Weasley’s family, and if you have guessed correctly… Coven?”
“Stop the spell…”
Fred awkwardly canceled the illusion on the three people and then looked at Dumbledore nervously, waiting for the verdict.
The atmosphere became silent.
Dumbledore looked at the three people calmly, and the three people were uneasy about being caught doing bad things. Even Coven did not know what to do now.
Finally, Dumbledore broke the silence. “I think this is not the right place to talk. Gentlemen, let’s go back to the castle first.”
Coven and the other two nodded honestly and then obediently followed Dumbledore back to the castle.
When they finally arrived at Headmaster’s room, Professor McGonagall, who was wearing a thick nightdress, and the guard Rubeus Hagrid, were already waiting at the door of the Headmaster’s room.
Obviously, Dumbledore had already informed the two of them in some way…
