You know what? Fuck it. Here is an extra chapter for y'all. A make up for yesterday.
"STEP AWAY FROM MY SON, UNIDENTIFIED SNAKE MONSTER AND THE BLURRY SIXTEEN YEAR OLD BOY! PLEASE COMPLY OR ELSE I WILL- Aria, am I allowed to blow up the chamber?"
"No we are not, remember? We got told off by Dumbledore for using the explosion spell in school grounds."
"However this doesn't count as school grounds does it?"
"Just don't use explosions. Just in case."
"Ok, um... GET AWAY FROM MY SON BEFORE I HEX YOU! That works right?"
"I think that's appropriate."
Arthur let out a sigh of relief.
At least Harry and Ron are a little more sensible than I thought. They brought adult mages with them. This won't be as terrible. I wish I had my bag with me right now... oh well, will have to make this work.
Riddle coldly glared at Aria, Maxwell, Ron, Harry, And Lockhart before turning around to stare at Bask.
"I didn't want to do this as it would be a waste of a strong ally however it seems that you bring me no choice."
Riddle raised his hands and slowly faded away like sand in the wind. At the same time, Bask closed his eyes and started to shudder. When Bask opened his eyes again, it was as if he was an entirely different person.
"It seems that I can not control the basilisk's glare yet," Bask hissed in parseltongue. "Oh well, this will be enough. Egle, attack now."
Scarlet hesitantly raised her hands and pointer them at the others.
Arth paled and yelled at the other group.
"RON AND HARRY! DISTRACT THE GIRL IN RED FOR AS LONG AS YOU CAN! FATHER, MOTHER, AND LOCKHART COME AND ASSIST ME WITH THE BASILISK!"
Aria and Maxwell immediately took out their wands and started to cast spells on the basilisk while Lockhart tried to run. Riddle, seeing the fleeing Lockhart thought that he was leaving to gather reinforcements and attacked.
Arth grabbed the pendant on his neck and groaned.
"And I guess I'll cut out its eyes... sorry Bask."
The pendant transformed into a gleaming dagger and Arth sprung into action.
While Riddle was distracted with the spells that his parents were casting, Arth ran alongside the snake's long body until he reached the head and stabbed Riddle in the eye.
There was an unnatural scream as the Basilisk screamed in pain and flung Arth off its eye. Before Arth fell to the floor, he yelled Arresto Momentum, causing him to gently land on his feet.
"That's one eye down, one more to go."
Maxwell was beaming with pride all the while fighting the basilisk.
"THATS MY BOY! NOW GET THE OTHER ONE!"
"ALREADY ON IT!"
Arthur clicked his tongue. His pendant was still stuck in the eye of Bask/Riddle. He raised his hands and stared at the basilisk.
A thin needle like blade shot out from the ground and struck the Basilisk. Arth couldn't help but sigh.
Even though the power he used was several times greater than when he used it against the troll, it seemed as though it couldn't even scratch a basilisk.
One is a king of snakes while the other is a dumb troll.
Arth was about to cast another spell when he realized that he couldn't use magic.
Arth turned around and yelled at his parents and Lockhart.
"DON'T STARE INTO HIS EYES, I THINK THATS PRETTY CLEAR AND DON'T RELY ON MAGIC TOO MUCH! IT CAN STOP YOU FROM USING MAGIC!"
His father yelled back.
"DOESN'T THAT SEEM A BUT UNFAIR?"
Arth took a glance at the battles that were going on.
Scarlet was battling with Harry and Ron in a way where both sides unenthusiastically hurled spells at each other.
The basilisk aka Riddle had lost an eye and was trying its best to insta kill anyone who was idiotic enough to stare at its remaining eye while his father and mother battled the snake with their eyes blindfolded.
Lockhart was still running around trying to escape from a rampaging Basilisk.
"...I bet that Lockhart is going to die."
Sure enough, Lockhart tripped and fell face first onto the floor. When he turned around he stared directly into the Basilisk's eyes and very obviously died on the spot.
