Halloween and the Troll
On Halloween morning in [Charms] class, [Hermione] greatly annoys [Ron] by correcting his pronunciation and then correctly performing the [Wingardium Leviosa] spell.
On the way out of [Charms] class, [Hermione] overhears [Ron] insulting her, and goes off to hide crying in the bathrooms for the rest of the day.
The Halloween feast begins but shortly, [Professor Quirrell] bursts in to announce that a [troll] has gotten into the [dungeons] - and the students are quickly sent back to their doritories.
[Harry] and [Ron] quickly ditch their classmates to go find [Hermione] and warn her about the [troll]. On the way they notice [Snape] running off to the third floor, but are quickly distracted by the [troll], which they lock in a bathroom.
Hearing a scream, [Harry] and [Ron] realize they have locked the [troll] in the girls' bathroom with [Hermione] - and rush in to fight it. [Harry] sticks his [wand] up its nose and [Ron] drops its club on its head, knocking it out and saving the terrified [Hermione].
