Yes, Harry, it was Ginny Weasley who opened the Chamber of Secrets.
No. She couldn't. She wouldn't.
It was Ginny who set the basilisk on the Mudbloods and Filch's cat
Ginny who wrote the threatening messages on the walls.
But why? Because I told her to.
You'll find I can be very persuasive. Not that she knew what she was doing.
She was, shall we say, in a kind of trance.
Still, the power of the diary began to scare her.
She tried to dispose of it in the girls' bathroom.
And then who should find it but you?
The very person I was most anxious to meet.
And why did you want to meet me?
I knew I had to talk to you, meet you if I could.
So I decided to show you my capture of that brainless oaf Hagrid
To gain your trust.
Hagrid's my friend!
And you framed him, didn't you? It was my word against Hagrid's.
Only Dumbledore seemed to think he was innocent.
I'll bet Dumbledore saw right through you.
He certainly kept an annoyingly close watch on me after that.
I knew it wouldn't be safe to open the Chamber again while I was at school
So I decided to leave behind a diary
Preserving my 1 6yearold self in its pages
So that one day I would be able to lead another
To finish Salazar Slytherin's noble work.
Well, you haven't finished it this time.
In a few hours, the Mandrake Draught will be ready.
And everyone who was Petrified will be all right again.
Haven't I told you? Killing Mudbloods doesn't matter to me anymore.
For many months now, my new target has been you.
