This was it. Something had been off for the past hour, though no one had said anything. And now, Su could hear a commotion streaming in through the window of the Ravenclaw girls' dorm. Shouts from the lower floors, blasts from spells and hexes, panicked voices. The school had been shut down, and no one was saying why - but everyone knew.
She rose from her spot at the window sill, her wand still clutched in her hand. Since she had gotten it back at the DA meeting earlier in the week, Su had literally not let it off of her person. She had even slept with it, tied to her ankle beneath her pyjama pants leg. After having it taken away for so long, and feeling so powerless, Su was incredibly loath to be parted from it. With little pretense at a calm demeanor, she thundered down the steps, arriving in the Common Room in record time. She was hardly the first one there, as it seemed most of her House had gathered. Most were talking hurriedly.
"Oi, Kev," she said quickly, spotting her friend not far from the stair well. Su jumped in front of him and looked him up and down, as though sizing him up. "What's the word? Have you heard anything?" She lowered her voice slightly, but not so much that her voice was lost in the din. "I saw Ginny's message."
