A/N: Due to the amount of dislike for what I had written I'm redoing the story so that it's not bad. Enjoy and thanks for reading.
"Drive carefully," Petunia called out as Vernon and Dudley left the house so that Vernon could take Dudley to Smelting's.
"I'm going to allow Dudley to drive to the station," he said, "He needs to get the practice in."
"Then Dudley, you drive carefully," Petunia said and she kissed them both goodbye and they left.
As the car pulled out she couldn't believe how quickly Dudley was growing up.
Several hours later Petunia had a funny feeling that something was wrong. Vernon always called home after Dudley was off, but he wasn't doing it now. At five she pulled out dinner and had just put it on the stove when there was a knock on the door. Thinking that Vernon had something that he needed help with she went to answer it. Standing there were two officers.
"Are you Petunia Dursley?" one of them asked.
"Yes," she said, "What's going on?"
She normally didn't ask questions but this time, it was needed.
"We would like to come in," the other officer said, "So that the neighbors don't overhear."
She nodded and moved aside to let them enter. She then closed the door and waited.
"Mrs. Dursley I hate to tell you this but there was an accident," said the first officer.
"And accident! But-oh my Dudley, Vernon, are they alright?"
They both looked at each other and the second said, "I'm afraid that they both didn't survive."
Petunia felt the tears welling up and the first said, "Your son was driving, without a permit, and wasn't watching what he was doing. He hit a car, the car then flipped three times, and exploded. Their bodies were burned beyond recognition."
"T-T-Then how do you know that it was them?"
"Their plate's ma'am," said the second. "I'm sorry, Mrs. Dursley, but we need to know where you want the bodies sent to?'
Petunia gave them a name and they left.
Petunia didn't remember what happened over the next couple of days. All around her people came to offer their respects but all Petunia felt was numbness. She didn't even remember burying them, their caskets closed. They brought food, helped to keep her house clean, but most of all they wanted to know why Dudley, who didn't have a permit, had been allowed to drive.
"Vernon had a license, thank you very much," she snapped.
"Petunia, Dudley was fourteen," one man said, "It doesn't matter if someone was in the car that had a license, he should have waited until he was fifteen."
"Are you saying that I didn't know how to raise my own child?"
"You let your child get away with too much and this is the result," he said.
"GET OUT," Petunia screamed, her anger rising.
Suddenly things started to shake and that alone made everyone leave. The shaking didn't stop as her anger grew and grew. And then the windows blew out, things hit the walls, and Petunia blacked out.
Dumbledore had a feeling that something just wasn't right this year. The past three years nothing big had happened. But with the Dark Mark appearing over the Quidditch World Cup, Death Eaters walking around, he knew that he had to get Alister Moody to come to Hogwarts. Of course the odd thing about the attack that had happened was that the person that did it hadn't been caught. If it hadn't been for the fact that Alister was an excellent Auror, even though he was a little out of it, Dumbledore was sure that something was wrong.
Of course his appearance had shocked most of the students and Dumbledore felt that Alister would ensure that the students were ready. He gave his usual notice about the first staff meeting of the term and then headed back to his office. He hadn't even touched the door handle when he heard Fawkes making a horrible noise. Yanking the door open he found that the alarm that told him of any changes to Privet Drive had gone off.
And then it exploded and Dumbledore knew something had happened. He fire called Severus and Minerva, demanding them to meet him at the entrance to the grounds. He then bolted out of the office, down the moving staircase, and down the corridor. Ten minutes later both Professors arrived.
"Why can't we sleep?" Minerva asked, clearly not liking the idea that she wasn't going to bed.
"Something has happened at Harry's Aunt's house," Dumbledore told them.
"Death Eaters," Minerva guessed.
"I don't know, but we need to find out," he said and the three of them left, Severus grumbling as they left.
When the three of them arrived Dumbledore made the lights go out with his Put Outer, just like he had done when Harry had arrived thirteen years ago. There was no car in the drive and the lights weren't on in the house. But Dumbledore could feel something had happened here. There was a lot of magic coming from the house but it didn't feel like anything that Harry had done. And there was no sign of a dark mark or Death Eaters.
"This signature is new," Minerva said.
Dumbledore, fearing the worst, knocked three times on the door. Nothing!
"We need to use magic to get inside," Dumbledore told them.
Severus pulled out his wand and muttered, "Alohomora."
"The door is being protected by magic," Dumbledore told Severus, "Use the other charm."
"Great," Severus muttered, "Portaberto!"
The lock splintered from the door and it opened.
"Lumos," Dumbledore whispered and the end of his wand lit up.
They found Petunia knocked out in the kitchen, dishes and other things all over the floor. At once Dumbledore checked to see if she was alive and that's when he turned to Severus and Minerva.
"Get Poppy in here," he said.
"What's going on?" Minerva asked.
"I don't know but that's why I need her," Dumbledore said, "And check your book."
And Minerva went to collect her.
Thirty minutes later the Matron arrived with a loud CRACK and entered the kitchen. Dumbledore told her what his wand had registered and Poppy took her wand out and ran several spells over her. A couple of moments later Minerva was back and she looked like she was in a state of shock.
"Her name is in the book," Minerva said just as Poppy said, "Your wand didn't lie. She's got a magical core."
"Wait a minute, are you telling us that she's a witch," Severus said.
"That's exactly what I'm saying," Poppy said.
"I'm guessing that something happened and that's what caused the alarm to go off," Dumbledore reasoned.
"But what happened?"
Severus picked something up and said, "I think I know what happened. Her husband and son are dead!"
"Dear Merlin," Minerva gasped.
"Wake her up," Dumbledore told Poppy.
"Rennervate!" Poppy said and Petunia opened her eyes.
She groaned and then, "What the hell are you doing in my house?"
"We have things to talk about," Dumbledore answered.
A/N: Portaberto was a favorite unlocking charm before Alohomora was invented.
