Summary: Abandoned. Found in his animangus form. Bought by his Potions professor. Yeah, you should feel sorry for Harry Potter. I such at summaries, but please read. :)


Disclaimer: Sadly, I do not own Harry Potter and all related characters. If I did, many things would be different. :)

Harry sat in his bedroom at privet drive wondering, not for the first time, why Dumbledore insisted upon sending him back here each year.

He had just managed to dose off when he heard a bang from downstairs.


'Oh joy, Uncle Vernon's home.' Harry quickly scrambled out of bed to answer his uncle's bellow.

"Yes Uncle Vernon?"

"Come on, we're going for a drive."



"Yes sir."

And before he even had a chance to grab his wand his uncle had already dragged him out the door. They got into the car and drove to the nearby forest where Vernon forced Harry out of the car.

"Um, what are we doing here?"

"I don't want you at my house any longer you freak. You can find your way back to that freak school of yours of just stay here and die for all I care. You're not my problem anymore." And with that Vernon got in the car and drove away.

Not so sleepy anymore Harry started wandering around the forest looking for a safe place to sit for a few minutes.

"I guess I could always...No, I better not…Then again…Yeah…" So with his mind made up (lol) Harry shifted into his animangus form.

-Time passes-

He had been wandering through the forest in his animangus form for a while when he started to become drowsy. He decided to rest for a while. So he found an unoccupied hole near the base of a tree, curled up, and went to sleep.


He was abruptly woken a few hours later by the shriek of a woman. He quickly looked around to see what would be making her scream and realised that it was him. He tried to slither away but before he could get very far at all he felt a spell hit him. He was picked up roughly and thrown in a box before he lost all consciousness.


He woke up a few hours later to the sounds of people bickering.

"You said you had a snake problem!"

"We did. It was taken care of."

"I was promised a snake. I don't care what kind of snake it is. I want my snake or this deal is off!"

"Fine, fine. We just found one today, you can have him."

"You would do well to not back out on a promise again." Harry could almost hear the other man cringe at that.

He suddenly felt his box being picked up and then handed to someone else.

"Do what you will with that snake but know that if we see it around here we won't be returning it."

"I'll keep that in mind." The other man sneered.

And with that Harry could feel a weird pull and figured that the man that now had him was a wizard and he had just apparated.

When the pulling sensation stopped Harry could feel the box shaking and figured the man was running.

They suddenly stopped and a voice Harry recognized could be heard.

"Well? Did you get me a snake?!"

"Yes sir. I'm not sure what breed it is but they said it was poisonous."

"Fine. Here is what I owe you. Now get out of my sight."

Harry knew he recognized the voice from somewhere but couldn't put his finger on who's it was.

There was a sudden jolt and he figured that his box was being picked up again. A soothing voice then made its way into the box. "Don't worry now. We'll be home soon."

Harry didn't know why but he felt he could trust the voice and decided to doze off again.


Harry woke with a start not knowing where he was or why he was there. Then he looked around and noticed that he was still in the same box as before. He decided to see how much space he had in the box to move around. Upon shifting he discovered that he had enough room to stretch half his body out, but not much more than that.

"Would you stop moving?!! You'll make me drop the box you irritating snake!" the voice that he thought he recognized suddenly snapped.

Harry froze, not because the voice and threat actually scared him but because he finally figured out whom the voice belonged too.

"Professor Snape?!!?"

And with that final thought Harry passed out once again.

Hey, hope you enjoyed it. :)Sorry its so short. The next chapter will probably be about the same but i'll try to make them longer after that. :)

Would love to hear from you, it always helps. :)
