Who teased Moaning Myrtle before she died?

Answered by Robert Dupre

Before Moaning Myrtle’s tragic demise, there was a girl named Olive Hornby who used to tease her relentlessly. It was a constant source of torment for poor Myrtle, who already had a difficult time fitting in and finding friends. Olive Hornby took every opportunity to mock and belittle her, making her life even more miserable.

I remember one incident vividly. It was during a particularly gloomy day at Hogwarts when Myrtle was feeling particularly down. She sought solace in the girls’ bathroom, a place where she could be alone and escape the cruelties of the outside world, if only for a little while. Little did she know that this would be the last time she would ever find refuge there.

As Myrtle sat in the bathroom, tears streaming down her face, she heard a chilling voice. It was a boy’s voice, cold and menacing. And then, she saw them – a pair of large, glowing yellow eyes. Fear gripped her, but before she could react, it was too late. She died instantly, without any chance to defend herself or escape the terror that had befallen her.

From that moment on, Myrtle’s spirit was bound to the bathroom where she met her untimely end. However, her torment did not end there. She returned as a ghost, forever haunting Olive Hornby, the very girl who had tormented her in life. It seemed that fate had a twisted sense of justice, making sure that Olive would never forget the pain she had caused.

As a ghost, Myrtle found some solace in being able to frighten and disturb her former tormentor. She would moan and wail, making sure Olive was constantly reminded of the misery she had inflicted upon her. It was a small form of revenge, a way for Myrtle to make her presence felt and to let Olive know that her actions had consequences.

In the end, the teasing and torment that Olive Hornby subjected Moaning Myrtle to had tragic consequences. It serves as a reminder that our words and actions can have far-reaching effects, and that we should always strive to treat others with kindness and empathy. Myrtle’s story is a haunting reminder of the consequences of bullying, and a testament to the power of compassion and understanding.
