Chapter 1: The Rescue
"You ungrateful whelp!" Petunia Dursley screamed, hitting her freak of a nephew with a skillet. Between his sobbing and her ranting no one in the house heard a crack coming from the living room. Not until Petunia was caught around the wrist while mid swing. As she turned to face stormy grey eyes her face drained of all color. "We'll be taking the boy," the man drawled gesturing for the cloaked man behind him to pick up the now unconscious boy. As he moved forward Petunia backed into a corner dropping the skillet as she stammered "good riddance! I didn't want that freak in my house to begin with!" All the men did was sneer at her as they moved out of the house to the street before apparrating into a study where a blond woman was waiting.
Narcissa Malfoy turned around as the telltale crack signaled her husband and his brother had returned. When she noticed the bruised and bloodied boy in Severus' arms she gasped and hurried over. "I can't believe your sources were right Lucius! Why would Dumbledore even think of putting anyone let alone the Boy Who Lived into a abusive house?" Lucius joined his wife and brother by the sofa where the boy now laid as Narcissa and Severus worked together to heal him. "I don't know darling, but I'm glad we got him out. I can't believe Dumbledore didn't think we would find him or thought the Dark Lord would do anything by accident." They continued in silence for several minutes until all three moved back to observe a now conscious and completely healed child. He first squinted up at them before jerking up into a sitting position feeling his face around his eyes. " How can I see without my glasses?" He asked looking directly at Severus like he knew he was at fault. Severus only smirked, "I took the liberty of healing your eyesight when I healed the concussion on the side of your head that was healing the wrong way."
The child looked at him for a minute before offering a small smile, "thank you." For some reason Severus blushed and looked away. Thankfully no one noticed but Lucius who passed it off as nothing and turned back to the boy. "Hello child, do you know who I am?" Lucius asked, kneeling right in front of the couch. "Yes, you are the man who saved me from Aunt Petunia." came the answer. "I'm also your Uncle Lucius, how would you feel about living with me and my family? I have a son you age who has been dying to meet you." All he got was a confused but hopeful look, "why?" Lucius smirked, "you are a VERY special boy Harry Potter. You deserve better than how those muggles were treating you and if you stay with me I promise you will get revenge for what they did to you. You can even how the man who put you in that hell hole." Harry looked at him then at Narcissa who was sitting beside him smiling encouragingly. "I guess you couldn't be worse than Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon."
Lucius smiled warmly along with Narcissa, Harry, and even Severus cracked a small smile. "I promise Harry, you'll want for nothing while you live here."
