On a not so late Thursday evening, Harry was again sitting in an unused classroom. But this time he had an audience of seven portraits in four frames holding a very informal discussion of who knows what.
"For instance," one older lady stated. "On Thursday nights like tonight, when the staff have their weekly meetings, Mr. Filch always neglects to patrol the fifth floor and above. He works the fourth floors down to his quarters where he retires for the evening. Such information could save that young Miss Brown's reputation. There are more broom closets than the one she favors on the third floor. She and her current beau missed being caught after curfew by a mere one minute the other night."
"So what locations would you recommend for say, a young, upstanding couple to spend some private time together?" Harry thought out loud.
"Not that you have ever taken advantage of any," an elderly gentleman replied. "But there are a few long forgotten stowage rooms on the seventh floor that are never checked by the staff or the prefects. They are quite more comfortable than a cramped broom closet, if you know what I mean."
There were a few comments from the other portraits concerning the gentleman's response. Some agreed, some were surprised, and one couple appeared to be blushing.
Harry thought of having a quick but private conversation with Lavender when he returned to the Common Room later. No reason for loosing house points unnecessarily.
