It had been a pretty uneventful afternoon spent on the grounds. Alice had been doodling around in her creature studies journal for the majority of the afternoon. Alice had always spent time alone on the grounds before that "buddy system" rule was set in place and during the day time, she really saw no reason why she still couldn't spend time alone out there. What kind of fool would attack someone during the broad daylight anyway? Alice felt perfectly safe at her usual spot perched up near the lake. A relaxing afternoon ahead of her.
While it had been uneventful, the afternoon had passed by fairly quickly and before Alice knew it the sun was beginning to set. With a sigh, she began to pack up her journal and quill back into her bag and swung it over her shoulder. She began the trek back up to the castle to avoid any conflict with prefects or Masin and Casey, or worse... Abigail and James who had put the buddy system rule in effect. The sky was darkening quickly and dinner would spoon be served so this was as good a time as any to head up to the castle. As the Hufflepuff did so, however, she came across a small group of Gnomes that were practically hurtling themselves across the path. Alice stopped and raised an eyebrow at them. It was odd to see them roaming anywhere but near the gardens and the fact that they were running toward the forest gave Alice an eerie feeling.
That was when Alice heard something off in the distance. It sounded like an explosion... coming from the castle.
