"In here. Let's hear what it's all about. Then we can tell them what we've found out."
-- Harry Potter, suggesting that he and Ron hide in the teachers' cloak wardrobe (CS16)
Harry and Ron have just figured out what the monster was and where to find the Chamber of Secrets. They run to the staff room but no one is there. A few moments later an emergency staff meeting is called and Harry suggests that they hide in the wardrobe to hear what’s going on before telling the staff what they’ve learned. They hear that Ginny Weasley has been taken into the Chamber.
