Lucius Malfoy extends his hand, as if offering to shake Harry's, but instead gently plays his fingers over the fringe of Harry's scalp, revealing Harry's LIGHTNING BOLT SCAR. At his touch, Harry withdraws, ever so slightly. LUCIUS MALFOY Forgive me, Mr. Potter. But your scar is legend. As, of course, is the wizard who gave it to you. HARRY He was a murderer. LUCIUS MALFOY Yes, a pity about your parents. Curious that you yourself
should escape with a mere flesh wound. Curious, too, that you speak of him in the past. Surely, you don't think He-Who-MustNot-BeNamed is gone forever. HARRY His name is Voldemort. Those within earshot gasp as Harry utters the word. LUCIUS MALFOY You must be very brave, Mr. Potter, to dare speak his name. Or foolish.

TOM RIDDLE Ginny told me all about you. 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. HARRY Hagrid's my friend. And you framed him, didn't you? TOM RIDDLE It was my word against Hagrid's. Only Dumbledore seemed to think Hagrid was innocent. HARRY I'll bet Dumbledore saw right through you. TOM RIDDLE I knew it wouldn't be safe to open the Chamber again while I was still at school. So I decided to leave behind a diary, preserving my sixteen-year-old self in its pages, so that one day... I would be able to lead another to finish Salazar Slytherin's noble work. HARRY Well, you haven't finished it this time. In a few hours Mandrake Draught will be ready and everyone who was petrified will be
all right again. TOM RIDDLE Haven't I told you, that killing Mudbloods doesn't matter to me anymore? For many months now, my new target has been... you. (grinning) Imagine my disappointment when I learned Ginny had stolen the diary back from you. HARRY Ginny stole the diary from my room? But why? (CONTINUED)
THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS - Rev. 2/19/02 124.
TOM RIDDLE She was afraid. Afraid you'd learn how to work the diary. Afraid I'd tell you just who it was that had been strangling all those roosters.
Horrified, Harry glances at Ginny, growing more PALE, then back to Riddle, who is growing more SOLID. TOM RIDDLE Come now, Harry. Don't look so disappointed. Had Ginny succeeded in destroying the diary, she would have destroyed me. And we couldn't be having this little talk. And I have so many questions for you. HARRY Like what? TOM RIDDLE Well, how is it that a baby with no extraordinary magical talent managed to defeat the greatest wizard of all time? How did you escape with nothing but a scar, while Lord Voldemort's powers were destroyed? HARRY Why do you care how I escaped? Voldemort was after your time. TOM RIDDLE Voldemort is my past, present and future. Riddle pulls Harry's wand from his pocket and begins to trace it through the air, writing three words: "TOM MARVOLO RIDDLE." Then, with a wave, he
re-arranges them: "I AM LORD VOLDEMORT." HARRY You. You're the heir of Slytherin. You're Voldemort? TOM RIDDLE Surely you didn't think I would keep my filthy Muggle father's name? (MORE)
