[Hogwarts] Suspicious Activity

Dianne Osgood, Hogwarts School

Magical ★ Faculty • Astronomy Professor
#31490
Location: Hogwarts, Staff Room • Date: October 1st, 1996


Dianne had been supervising the students at breakfast this morning, and considering what was happening in the Wizarding World right now, she was more vigilant than usual when the morning Owl post was delivered. Out of the corner of her eye, there was an owl with a package that didn't seem to be approaching any particular student, which was strange behaviour for the owls.

Inspecting the package, it also didn't seem to be addressed to a particular person. It was medium sized, and just wrapped in brown wrapping paper.

She confiscated it and took it to the staff room with her after, and sent messages to a few trusted colleagues to ask for a second opinion. Considering some of the things that had already happened, Dianne felt that they could not be vigilant enough at the moment when it came to protecting the students.

Upon her desk lay a pile of essays she had yet to read and a lump of correspondence she had yet to address. As the days grew darker and the times followed suit, more and more parents requested reassurance. While Minerva could empathize with their concerns, dispensing comfort was not her forte nor could it be her priority.

More than ever, the students and the staff were on high alert. Any suspicious activity was to be reported and addressed. When a message came from one of her colleagues expressing concerns about a package, the professor had abandoned her encumbered desk and had made her way towards the staff room.

"It arrived with this morning's Owl post?" She inquired as she noticed the brown package.

"Yes," Dianne said, sounding a little distant, as she was lost in thought while twirling her wand with her fingers.

"The owl circled the Great Hall a few times, before dropping it at the end of the Slytherin table, but where no students were sat at the time."

It was rare to see the owls do anything but head immediately for the intended recipient - it was what they had been trained to do for as long as Wizarding history went back.
