Spectres beckoned the competitors. This way, one murmured.
“Theo!” The maze muffled Pansy’s exclamation and Seamus’ shriek.
We know the way, his companion added, ghostly tatters of her sari tangling around entwined fingers.
Pansy paused briefly—Theo and Padma were once her closest friends. The ghosts flitted forward like a magical compass, away from danger, toward the faintest hope of an exit.
Theo and Padma didn’t pause upon passing the jumbled embrace of bones and rotted fabric. Pansy stifled a sob when she saw eternally clasped hands, rings clicking against bone in counterpoint to the roar of the approaching monster. Author's Notes:
