In Lulu's two and a bit years being a student of magic at Hogwarts - something she still sometimes couldn't believe - she had heard a lot of rumours, myths and legends about the castle and its grounds. But the one rumour she was desperate to find out the truth about, was the fact that there was apparently a giant squid living in the lake. To Lulu, that just seemed like the coolest thing in the world, and she needed to see it, and maybe make friends with it.
That was the plan she had after class on this cold November afternoon - she wasted no time escaping from the dungeons after a double Potions lesson, put on her hat and scarf and headed out to the banks of the Black Lake. It was cold, but it wasn't raining.
Lulu was sat down, holding a large branch with some leaves on that she had found nearby and dipping into the water, in case that would entice the Giant Squid to come up.
"Come on Squid, please come to the surface," Lulu said quietly, splashing her branch into the water again.
