Thank Merlin someone heard her, at the flash of red lights, head tilted back to see.... Ernie Macmillan. Just FABULOUS! The last person she wanted showing up was a Hufflepuff like Macmillan. In her mind the bloody head boy was more into policies and rules than doing everything within his power to solve a problem. He certainly made a mess of the itching powder incident. Nothing came out of his bloody prying, and attempts to solve the puzzle. Daphne could have done more than him, but she was promising a painful consequence to those that sent those packages!
Then he finally shot a spell, the bloody Impediment Jinx?!
"SODDING HELL! BLAST THE THING!"
The spell did its work, as the spider did slow... slightly. Wand arm managed to wiggle out from under it's grasp, ripping her coat in the process, and leaving a long cut along her arm. "CONFRINGO!" She managed to shout, just as the spider grasped her coat. As the spider was sent flying back a few feet, it managed to rip Daphne's coat off of her completely.
Scrambling to her feet, blue eyes darted to glance at Ernie, giving him a harsh glare. The spider began to regain its composure, shaking off the effects of both spells and ripping her coat to shreds. Groaning, Daphne watched the vile creature rip apart her coat, it almost seemed hungry.
