The Mystery Of The Golden Egg

When Harry announced that he had solved the mystery of the golden egg.

The Gryffindors who were listless and bored immediately regained their spirits.

"What's the secret?"

"Harry, tell us what that piercing scream is!"

"I guess the second task must be dueling each other, and they will allow the use of the Unforgivable Curses."

Everyone chattered about their guesses.

Seeing that his friends couldn't get in because of everyone obstructing him, Ronald hurriedly separated the crowd to stand in front of Harry.

"You guys, how can Harry tell the secret of the golden egg if you don't let him talk?!"

After the roar, the common room became much quieter.

Harry first cast a grateful look at Ron, and then said to the crowd, "The awful sound is actually a mermaid singing."

"They seem to convey some information about the task using a song, but I still can't figure it out, please help me analyze it."

He took out a parchment where he wrote the song and started to read aloud.

"Come seek us where our voices sound,

We cannot sing above the ground.

And while you are searching, ponder this:

We've taken what you'll sorely miss.

An hour long you'll have to look,

And to recover what we took.

But after an hour - the prospect's black

Too late, it's gone, it won't come back."

Everyone looked at each other in blank dismay, the lyrics are quite easy to understand.

Seamus rubbed his chin and looked at Harry.

"Harry, what is the treasure you would miss the most?"

This question was what troubled Harry the most, because he didn't know what he was most reluctant to part with.

His Invisibility Cloak? The Firebolt?

Harry spent most of the day in the prefect's bathroom thinking about these questions.

He listened repeatedly and kept thinking about it.

Later, when he saw the mermaid portrait on the bathroom window, he realized that it was the singing of mermaids.

Seeing Harry shaking his head, everyone was discouraged.

Seamus talked again at this time: "Then let's ponder the other part, what is the content of the second task?"

As soon as he finished speaking, the twins came out of their bedroom. After asking, the two also learned the secret of the golden egg.

"This topic is very simple, the second competition is to find things underwater."

"There are not only the giant squid in the black lake, but also many mermaids."

"Harry needs to enter the Black Lake and find the treasure stolen by the merpeople within an hour!"

The twins deciphered the content of the task just by listening to it once.

But what the object they will be taking is, the two also don't know, this question can only be solved by Harry himself.

Watching the twins receive praise from the other lions, Harry sighed: "I know all of this, I've been thinking about this all day long, and I've already figured out what I have to do."

"The big question now is how do I stay underwater for an hour?"

The common room suddenly fell silent and everyone frowned.

Ron thought for a long time, and suddenly a flash of inspiration came to his mind.

"Harry, you once told me that Muggles use something for diving."

Hearing his friend's description, Harry immediately understood what he meant.

"You mean scuba?"

"Yeah, scuba, you can call them from the nearest Muggle town with the Summoning Charm just like you did in the first task."

Ron had just finished speaking when the twins laughed out loud.

"What are you laughing at? Is my idea wrong?"

Looking at his brother who had a livid face, Fred explained with a smile: "Although I don't know what scuba is."

"But I do know that a Muggle object flying across the sky, all the way to Hogwarts will be seen by many Muggles."

"According to the relevant regulations of the International Statute of Secrecy, Harry may not even need to participate in the second match, and he will be taken to the Ministry of Magic for violating the most important rule."

Hearing the twins explain, Ron became a little embarrassed, he really forgot about it.

Harry now looked at the Transfiguration textbook on the sofa.

"Maybe I can learn about Animagus, like that guy."

He looked at Ron, and he knew that his friend must understand who he was talking about.

Ron really showed a surprised look: "That's right, you can directly turn into a fish, and all your problems will be solved."

Unfortunately, this proposal was once again rejected by the twins.

How can becoming an Animagus be so easy?

The average adult wizard takes years to learn, and it also comes with high risks.

They must be assisted by someone who is proficient in transfiguration and experienced with the animagus transformation.

Harry sat down on the sofa in frustration, and Ron comforted him when he saw this: "There is still a long time before the next task, we will slowly find a way."

"You don't understand, time flies by quickly."

Harry's words sounded a bit weird, and most of the people present couldn't understand them.

Only Harry, who had experienced the anxiety before the first task, understood.

"Ah!"

Neville Longbottom suddenly stood up from his chair, he seemed to have thought of a way to help Harry.

"Harry, wait for me, I have a way to help you."

Seeing Neville running back to the dormitory, everyone was at a loss.

Not long after, they saw him return while holding a thick book and coming in front of everyone.

"This book is about Aquatic Plants, which introduces a kind of plant that could be useful for the task, gillyweed."

Neville turned the book to the page introducing gillyweed.

"When a person eats the gillyweed, he can get gills along with webbed hands and feet for an hour, during which time he can breathe underwater."

Seeing what's in the book, Harry showed a delighted expression.

"Neville, well done, thank you so much, this time you really saved my life"

Others also praised Neville, he really helped a lot this time.

Neville scratched his head, and said embarrassedly: "This book was actually given to me by Professor Moody, he knew that I like herbology."

"And I wouldn't have remembered without Ron mentioning turning into a fish."

Hearing that Professor Moody helped him indirectly again, Harry became even more grateful to him.

Ron pretended to be modest for a while, and at the same time praised Neville, and finally asked: "Then, where can we get gillyweed?"

Including Harry, everyone looked at Neville with anticipation in their eyes.

"I don't know!" Neville shook his head neatly.

"Gillyweed is very rare, but I can ask others."

"Who?"

"Well, I can ask the owner of this book, Professor Moody, although Harry cannot accept the professor's help."

"But as a normal student, I can go to the professor to ask some questions, so it should be fine."

Hearing these shrewd words, everyone stared at the shy boy in front of them dumbfounded.

Is this still the honest Neville Longbottom?

Without further ado.

While the professors were resting, Neville took the book and headed to the Defense Against the Dark Arts office.

Learning about Neville's intentions, Moody's magic eye twirled wildly, which is a manifestation of his over-excitement.

"Gillyweed is relatively rare, and most people seldom have this thing, but since you want to see it, I'll find a way."

Then he opened his flask and took a sip of Polyjuice Potion.

"Ah, yes, Professor Snape, as a master of potions, should have some in his collection."

"S… Professor Snape?"

Neville's eyes were filled with fear of Snape.

Having been scolded in Potions class for three years in a row, Professor Snape had become his lingering nightmare.

Moody secretly scolded Neville for being a coward in his heart, but said it out of his mouth.

"I don't think he would be willing to help you. So after a while, I'll find an opportunity to lead Professor Snape out of his office."

"You take the opportunity to enter his office and take a good look at the gillyweed. Remember, you can only look at it, you can't steal it!"

Seeing Professor Moody's serious expression, Neville quickly nodded in agreement.

When Harry learned that Professor Moody promised to help solve the problem of gillyweed.

The big stone in his heart finally fell and could relax.

Then he started acting as he normally would, without a care in the world as if he didn't need to participate in a deadly competition. Practically acting like he had already cleared the second task.

While Harry was enjoying his school life.

A strange man in a black robe was standing alone in the center of a square in London where people were coming and going.

He didn't seem to care about the strange looks he was receiving.

After a few minutes passed, an old man and a young man walked towards the man in the black robe.

"Professor Snape, why didn't you change into something more Muggle looking?"

Snape cast a cold glance at the two of them and saw Lucas and Dumbledore both in decent Muggle casual clothes.

When the three of them stood together, Snape was indeed looking a bit out of place.

"Forget it, let's leave it at that, in order to prevent Voldemort from noticing our magic power, we have to use the Muggle way to rush over, are you two okay with that?"

"Of course, I have wanted to try Muggle transportation for a while now."

Dumbledore had no problem with that, and even looked interested.

The three first came to a place not far from the village of Little Hangleton, then took a taxi to Little Hangleton Cemetery.
