I suspect you are correct

“There are lots of other places to get into the passageways,” the smaller girl said, adding to the list of things that were surprising Myffi that day. This wasn’t just a room, then; there were passageways. Plural. And lots of entrances. How had she been at the school since October (or the very end of September, actually) and not known that there were secret passageways hidden all over the place? She hadn’t been near the rock wall on the Quidditch pitch, or behind the waterfall before, until today, so that would explain her not knowing about those entrances, but the first year was making it sound like there were more than just two ways it. How bizarre was that?

While Myfanwy was still processing the news about there being hidden parts of the school, she was also trying to process information about Grandpa Aaron and Marissa, and parents, and at least maybe that explained why a first year knew more about the school than Myffi did, when they had been there only about the same amount of time really. “Yes, I do know Marissa,” Myffi managed to interject while the redhead with the tarantula who talked a lot took pause for breath after giving Myfanwy what felt like her whole entire life history. “I’m friends with Rose already, but I don’t know Marissa all that well. She’s your sister?” Myffi queried what she had managed to understand so far. That made sense, there was definitely a family resemblance with all that red hair. “I’ve got a big sister, but she’s never been here. And we wouldn’t have been here at the same time, anyway,” she considered, “because Cledan is seven years older than me, so she’d be leaving just as I’d be joining.” They had in fact been to school together in Wales, because there was only one school for all the children in the village, but they hadn’t had secret passageways there for Cledan to show Myfanwy. As far as she knew. It wasn't a magic school so that was a fairly safe bet. “But yes, anyway, I only started this year, same as you. I’m Myfanwy,” she remembered to introduce herself, hoping the younger student would do the same, because no name was coming to mind, “but you can call me Myffi, if you want to.”

“I can’t believe there are secret passageways,” she continued to voice her astonishment when there felt suitable pause in conversation. “I had literally no idea. I can’t believe nobody has even told me about them,” she added as an afterthought. She didn’t really know Marissa very well, but she obviously knew about the passageways, because she had probably been the person to show her sister, and Marissa was friends with Rose and with Holland, and Myffi liked both of those sixth years and even the whole time she’d had a baby with Rose (fake, obviously, not a real baby, that was just weird) the other girl had never mentioned that there were just loads of hidden rooms and corridors and whatever in the school. Did everyone know? Myffi wondered if Nolan knew; he was even newer to the school than Myffi was. She sort of wanted to explore further, and she wouldn’t mind doing that with someone who knew them well, but without her glasses, and in her swimwear, and with a tarantula, probably wasn’t the best combination for doing that, so maybe now wasn’t a great time. “So you can get from the rec centre to the rock wall without even going outside?” she guessed.

    It was good that the older person wasn’t lost because Kit would have had to be a little bit judgmental about that and she didn’t like being judgmental, but they were super close to the rec center and ... more

        Wow the more the big kid talked the more Kit realized that she sounded really weird. Not in a bad way, but in a magical way, like a fairy. Except not like the fairies they saw in Magizoobotany or... more

          Hearing that the first year thought the Owen sisters’ names were strange didn’t bother Myffi in the slightest, especially as Kit - yes! Now she had a name to put to the face (and the voice, which was ... more

            Aww, Myfanwy thought that Kit would make a good party hostess! Kit’s cheeks turned pink with excitement as she bounced on the balls of her feet. It would be amazing! She didn’t have a theme yet... more

              Kit confirmed that Marissa had not had a party yet, and she should know, because she was her sister. Also that there was a big party coming, which was a totally fab prospect for Myfanwy to look... more
