 Synopsis 
Two days after his nighttime escapades, Harry takes delivery of a brand new top of the range broomstick during breakfast. Ron is in complete awe. Meanwhile, the students are sinking into the routine of school life.
One evening, Harry has his first Quidditch training session, a one-on-one practice with team captain Oliver Wood, during which he learns the rules of the game.
Little by little, the weeks begin to flow past and it is soon Halloween. A feast was planned to take place in the evening to celebrate the event, but classes take priority. The last lesson of the day is Charms, during which Ron manages to deeply offend Hermione, making her run away in tears.
However, this is not the worst event to take place on that day. During the feast, Professor Quirrell rushes into the great hall to pass the urgent message that a troll has found its way into the school. Chaos ensues, but Professor Dumbledore calms everybody down and instructs the prefects to escort their houses back to the common rooms. As they leave the hall, Harry and Ron hear that Hermione is in a toilet block, still crying. The duo feel obliged to tell her about the renegade troll because she might be endanger if not forewarned. They locate Hermione and are just persuading her to follow them to the common room when the troll bursts into the toilet. Harry and Ron manage to knock the troll unconscious due to a combination of sheer luck and unbelievable bravery, rather than good magic. And, although they are rewarded for their efforts by the faculty, this is not the best thing to come from the incident - Hermione bonds with the two boys and they become close friends.
