Prepare To Be Terrified: A Real-Life Dementor Has Been Spotted In The Muggle World
Dementor's are real.
In news that will have you hoarding chocolate and sifting through your memories to find the strongest, brightest one, a real-life dementor has been spotted by a group of terrifed muggles.
Even though dementors are usually invisible to the non-magical eye, shoppers in Zambia were left in shock when they spotted what looks *exactly* like the soul-sucking creature floating above a mall in Kitwe.
Naturally, people on social-media lost their minds over the similarities, fuelling reports that a) we're in the middle of a dementor apocalypse, and b) we must all have a few drops of magical blood in us to have even noticed it.
The creepy figure is said to have stuck around in the sky for "close to 30 minutes", with an eyewitness reporting there was panic on the ground: "Some started worshipping it but others ran away. It was so strange.”
For anyone who's a bit rusty on the Dementor front, they're described by JK Rowling as being "the foulest creatures that walk this Earth" who "drain peace, hope, and happiness out the air around them."
Meanwhile, people on Twitter have been trying to find a scrap of logic behind the phenomenon, with some pointing out that it could just be the "shadow from a kite', and others saying we're all doomed.
Either way, it's a good time to stock up on your chocolate supplies, just on the off-chance a Dementor rocks up out of nowhere.
