Harry Potter
And the Chamber of
Secrets
By Matt Carlson

Harry returns from Hagwarts back to the Dursley’s home for another terrible summer. He returns home on his birthday and nobody even remembers. Harry has to stay upstairs all night because Uncle Vernon is having business guests over for a dinner party. Then, out of the blue, an house elf named Dobby sneaks into Harry’s bedroom and is becoming out of control because he’s so excited to meet Harry. He tells Harry that he must not go back to Hogwarts because something bad is going to happen there. Harry gets upset for one thing because he is too loud, and for another because he has been stopping Harry’s mail. Dobby tells Harry he can have them if he promises not to go to Hogwarts. Harry just becomes madder and so Dobby takes off downstairs right in the middle of the dinner party. Dobby escapes and Uncle Vernon becomes so angry with Harry that he locks him up in his room. That night Ron, and his two brothers, came to Harry’s rescue in a flying car that their dad built. They returned home to an angry mother who didn’t know they took the car. The Weasley boys get yelled at while Harry is treated with the up most respect. The next day Harry and the Weasleys all went shopping for the new coming year at Hogwarts. While shopping, Harry bumps into Gilderoy Lockhart, a kind of wizard celebrity. Lockhart instantly recognizes Harry and they have pictures taken together. A couple days later they were getting ready to go back Hogwarts on the train through the train station. Harry and Ron were the last ones to go through and then all of a sudden, crash! They didn’t make it through. It was solid. So Ron and Harry decide to take the flying car to Hogwarts. They make it there and crash into a tree called a Whomping Willow. This kind of tree can move and cause damage which was exactly what happened. They car escaped barely before it was completely crushed. Harry and Ron barely made it out also. Snape catches them and goes and gets Professor McGonagall. They thought they were going to become expelled but lucky enough they weren’t. Ron’s little sister turned out to be in Grfyndorf which was a relief to everybody. The next day everybody heard about the flying car and were all congratulating Ron and Harry and also their classes begun. It turned out that the first day of class with Lockhart was horrible. All he talked about was himself. After the class was over, nobody liked him anymore. The next day Harry and Ron went to Nearly Headless Nick’s deathday party. It was the worst thing they have ever been too but since Harry was Nick’s friend he stayed anyway. Out of nowhere Harry started hearing a small shrill voice. It kept saying “Time to kill…..kill….soo hungry…for soo long…..rip…..tear…kill…” Hermoine and Ron were with him at the time but nobody heard anything except Harry. Harry chased the voice and Ron and Hermoine chased Harry until they came to a dead end against the wall where Mrs. Norris the caretaker’s cat hung dead. On the wall there was writing in her blood that said, “The Chamber OF Secrets Has Been Opened. Enemies Of The Heir, Beware.” Harry, Ron, and Hermoine were taken into Dumbledore’s office where they were being intericated. Dumbledore knew it wasn’t them so he let them go. The next couple of days they were checking out every to find out who petrified Mrs. Norris. They stopped in the girl’s bathroom to where Moaning Mrtle, a dead wizard, was. She knew nothing. The next day they asked the History of Magic teacher if he knew the story of the Chamber of Secrets. He told them about four thousand years ago four people built Hogwarts. Slytherin, Grfyndorf, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw. He said that once they built the castle they started looking for kids who had magic that they could educated. Slytherin wanted to only teacher kids born into wizard families but Grfyndorf disagreed. So Slytherin left the school and built a Chamber of Secrets inside the castle with a beast inside. The heir of Slytherin could open The
