Chapter 1

Harry Potter woke up on a sunny sort of day a few weeks before leaving for Hogwarts, feeling slightly troubled. He had a feeling that something was going to happen that day. He just didn't know what…He got out of bed with a sigh. He looked out of the window, searching the skies for the owl that was supposed to come for him, delivering to him the list of school supplies for the coming school year. He noticed two owls gliding towards him…wait a moment…two?? At first, he supposed that one of them might have come from Hermione or Ron, but he recognized the Hogwarts emblem shining from the ring around their legs. Normally, this wouldn't trouble him, but today, the owls seemed like an omen. Harry knew something was amiss when only one of the owls landed on the ledge outside of his window. The other one went around the house…to another window. Curious, Harry followed the owl with his green- eyed gaze and those eyes widened with astonishment when he saw the owl land on…Dudley's window.

After sending the owl away, Harry began to unroll the parchment- until he heard horrified squeals and shrieks from the room across the hall. Immediately, Harry ran towards the source of the commotion- Dudley's bedroom and peered cautiously inside.

His beefy cousin was leaning on the wall, holding his bedpost for support and was yelling and shrieking, with Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon attempting to console him- to no avail. In Dudley's pudgy hand, held within fingers as thick as a sausage, was a letter from Hogwarts.

"Let me see that," demanded Harry. He knew he was going to pay for bossing Dudley around, but his curiosity was getting the better of him. Not very many things made "Big D" scream and yell for real.

When Dudley did nothing, just continued in hysteria, Harry reached out and snatched the letter. What he read stunned him.

Dear Mr. Dursley,

We are pleased to inform you that you have a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please find enclosed a list of all required books and equipment. Term begins on September 2. You will not be required to send an owl, as we expect Mr. Harry Potter of the same residence to assist you in finding your materials and showing you to the train, the Hogwarts Express on platform 9 3/4. We apologize for the late enrollment. Let yourself be warned- if you do not attend Hogwarts, you will suffer the consequences. Good day!

Yours very sincerely,

Professor and Headmaster Albus Dumbledore
