Professor Wollice was a true Slytherin and had managed to get out of patrolling for a while or found the easier tasks to do. After weeks of breaks beyond the normal work week, she had found herself stuck patrolling the Great Hall and ground floors. She had assumed today would be an annoying one with many student encounters but she was spoiled by a Hogsmeade weekend. The only students hanging in the Great Hall and lurking around the hallways were the ones too young to go, too cool for Hogsmeade or otherwise. It definitely decreased her workload.
She was not alone however. There was Professor Bourdelle with her too. Wilona had been wary of making more Professor friends. Who needed more of those when she had Owens (Arithmancy bffs for lyfe)? Still power in numbers against any mischievous children and she would take the company. It made the day just a little bit better really.
Wilona was almost considering signing up for the next Hogsmeade weekend and considered this day to be quite an easy one when a note came zooming towards her. 'Death Eaters in the castle - Llwyd' Well there went those thoughts. The Slytherin Head of House frowned, "We have a problem." She told her fellow Professor showing her the note. Wilona tried to appear calm and not jump into crazy reactions. "We need to lock down the Great Hall now." Wollice began aiming her wand at the Hall walls, hand waving in complicated motions as she muttered ward after ward.
A couple students unaware had tried to leave the hall and found themselves blocked by an invisible barrier. It prevented any student from coming out and and adults from coming in besides herself and Bourdelle. It wasn't the only one, she had equipped objects outside of the hall to defend the Great Hall from threat and more. Plus there was whatever Bourdelle had done to protect the Hall too. "Everyone please take a seat! This is a lock in and I need everyone to remain calm and quiet." She instructed.
"One of us should venture out and snag any stragglers." Wollice suggested to her co-worker.
