Home Sweet Home
Being dragged into a horrible 11 years of misery with his only living relatives, Harry Potter finds himself looking up at a giant man, who introduced himself as Hagrid, standing in the tiny shacks living room where he had been asleep just moments ago. Being interrupted at midnight on his birthday, and slightly confused at the news this man had just delivered, Harry looked up at him in shock.
"I'm a what?"
"A wizard o' course," said Hagrid "an' a thumpin' good'un, I'd say."
He then reached into his pocket and handed Harry a yellowish envelope. Slowly opening it, Harry pushed the dark messy hair out of his face, reviling his lightning bolt scar on his forehead, adjusted his broken glasses and slowly read out loud.
"Dear Mr. Potter, We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." He looked up "I don't understand, what does this mean?" At this moment Harry's head was full of questions.
"Well, yer parents' happen to of been great wizards, n' went to Hogwarts themselves." Hagrid stated proudly.
At this point his Aunt, Petunia, decided to speak up from the back of the room, where she was standing with Uncle Vernon and Harry's cousin Dudley.
"Oh yes, the perfect Potters, always so dear, so. Loved by our parents!" She paused, straining each word with pure hatred. "But I knew right from the start what she was - a Freak! Then she had to go and get herself blown up!"
Harry, suddenly ticked off replied, "Blown up? You told me they died in a car crash!"
"Car crash? CAR CRASH!" Screamed Hagrid, "It's an outrage! A scandal!"
Unable to believe what was going on Harry yelled back.
"What actually happened then?" Having to be stuck with the Dursleys for his whole life had been tough enough, but the fact he had been lied to pushed him over the edge."What ACTUALLY happened to my parents?"
At this moment the room went silent.
"Ah Harry, I don' know if I'm the right person ter tell yeh." Hagrid slowly spoke up. "Yer parents, Yer parents were killed."
"Killed? As in, someone killed them?" Harry was in disbelief.
Gulping Hagrid shakily replied, "Were killed by, You-Know-Who."
"Wait, who?" Not quite following, Harry's mind was racing with all the news he had found out this night.
Taking a deep breath Hagrid continued,
"You-Know-Who, his name is." Looking terrified he paused before whispering, "Voldemort. Bu' no one likes sayin' the name. Blimey, this is difficult. See, he was this wizard who went... bad. Worse than worse. An' he started gettin' followers. So people stood stood up to him- an' he killed 'em."
"So, Vold- I mean, You-Know-Who is the reason why my parents are dead?" Trying to clear things up, Harry asked, his mind was a knotted up ball of yarn. However his blood already started to boil with hate for this man. This creature, Voldemort was the reason why he had to live with the Dursleys for his whole life.
"Yes, he tried to kill you, too. But he couldn't do it." Hagrid said. " The magic, It didn' work on you, an' that's why yer famous. The spell countered on 'em, and you got yer scar." He said as he pointed at Harry's forehead.
"So, He's dead. Right?" Harry asked.
"Well, some like to believe so. But, others, think he's still crawling roun' , unable to do nothin' cause he's too weak."
This calmed Harry a little, he managed to defeat Voldemort when he was just a baby! But he was still uneasy at the fact that he could be out there, still alive.
"Now," Hagrid coughed getting back on topic. "When we get yer to Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore, the greatest Headmaster Hogwa-" When he was suddenly interrupted by Harry's Uncle Vernon.
"I AM NOT PAYING FOR SOME CRACKPOT OLD FOOL TO TEACH HIM MAGIC TRICKS!" At this moment Hagrid snapped, having enough of the Dursleys, suddenly grabbed his umbrella, pointing it threateningly at Vernon.
"NEVER- INSULT- ALBUS- DUMBLEDORE- IN- FRONT- OF- ME!" And bringing his umbrella down in a swish, he quickly pointed it at Harry's cousin Dudley. Then a flash of light admitted from the end, with a pop that sounded like a fire cracker.
Never seeing magic actually being used before Harry was in awe. When he looked over at Dudley he was shocked to see a pig tail had sprouted from his butt, and he was screaming like a madman. Harry couldn't resist laughing, it had to of been the funniest thing he had ever seen! Finally, the Dursleys were getting back what they deserved!
All three of them ran upstairs in panic to try to remove his new tail, and to escape the mad man who was running rampant in the house.
"Now, technically speakin' I ain't suppose to use magic." Hagrid said out of the corner of his mouth to Harry. "So, don't say nothing." He grinned before loudly exclaiming. " So, yer got a big day tomorro', gotta get yer books and on yer way to Hogwarts! It'd be best for you too get some sleep."
Harry laid down on the couch, realizing how tired he actually was, yet his mind was racing from what had happened. Was he really a wizard? Was it all a dream? Will he wake up tomorrow, and have to continue his same old boring life? Only time would tell, as he quickly drifted off to his much needed sleep.
