So I've decided to take a shot at writing HP fan fics after my first story went relatively well. (Sorry to anyone who put me on their alerts and are disappointed this isn't a new Naruto fic) Also I've got to confess I may royally screw this up because out of the 7 book I only read the 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 7th books. So if I mess something up don't be afraid to call me on it. And eventually the title will make sense.
Summary: This is your basic Harry is being abused and someone needs to come and rescue him story with a twist. Set after OotP. With Sirius gone Harry is terrified of going back to the Dursley's and Remus rescues him.
Warnings: child abuse in the first chapter and most likely swearing at some point
Pairings: I don't know yet but if you have a suggestion throw it out there. Slash or straight, doesn't matter.
Disclaimer: I don't own Harry Potter.
'Just two more days, just two more days.' Harry thought. He had been back at the Dursley's for a week and five days and it had been a total hell. He'd been locked in his room as soon as he got there and given little food for the first few days which wasn't so bad because at least they were leaving him alone.
But then Uncle Vernon had gotten a letter from the ministry informing the family how deeply saddened they were for the loss of Harry's Godfather, Sirius Black. The letter went on to say that it had been proved that Sirius had been innocent all along, which was something that Harry knew and had tried to keep from his uncle, because there was little threat when your protector was not only dead but had never actually killed anybody in the first place.
In the past Vernon would only punch, slap, or throw him against the wall or into his cupboard, but this time was different. Apparently Vernon was now releasing all the rage that he had built up over the years. After reading the letter, his uncle had come into his room and threw him against a wall before he started kicking him. All the while he was screaming how he knew all about Sirius and that Harry was going to pay for lying to them. He took off his belt and started whipping Harry with it, causing deep lash marks to appear all over his back. His uncle then stormed out of the room leaving him lying on the floor gasping for breath.
He came back after a few minutes, deciding that he had to give the boy a reminder of what he was. He picked Harry up off the floor, tied his hand behind his back, and threw him on his bed. He then took out a knife and used it to carve 'FREAK' into Harry's chest.
Over the next few days the abuse had kept up. Anytime that he didn't complete all of his chores, messed something up, his relatives thought that he had was being disrespectful, or just because Vernon had had a bad day at work, he would get another beating. Currently he had several broken ribs, his right shoulder was dislocated from when his had grabbed him and dragged him
to his room by his arm, and he had severe burns on his left side from his shoulder to his hip and on his left arm from shoulder to elbow.
His uncle had also added the words 'WORTHLESS', 'MURDERER' and, after Dudley had lied to his father that Cedric had been his boyfriend (1), 'QUEER' to his back. As he lay on his bed staring at the ceiling he thought back to the last day of school and the conversation he had with Remus.
"Please Remus you can't let me go back there! With Sirius dead and no one to threaten them they'll kill me!" Harry pleaded with Remus, terrified of going back to the Dursley's.
"I wish there was something I could do but Dumbledore said you have to go back to the Dursley's and he is making me go on a two week mission to the werewolf packs. Even if I wanted to, the ministry wouldn't let me take care of you… because I am a werewolf and labeled a 'dark and dangerous creature.' The ministry would have a fit and so would the whole wizarding world when they found out the boy-who-lived was living with a known werewolf."
"You could turn me! Then I'd be a werewolf too. The ministry couldn't possibly have a problem with a werewolf taking care of another werewolf!"
"Harry, I could never do that to you."
"Remus, I'm not asking you to do this to me I'm asking you to do this for me. It will keep me safe and from having to go back to the Dursley's. Plus, I'll get to live with you." Remus felt touched that one of the reasons that he would have lived with having a curse would be living with him, but he had never turned anyone in his life and didn't want the first person to be his friend's son. Someone he looked at as his cub.
"But I've never turned anyone before."
"Please, Remus! For me?"
"Harry, I will make you a deal. You have to go to the Dursley's for two weeks while I'm on my mission for Dumbledore. But as soon as I'm done, I will stop by the Dursley's and make sure they are not hurting you. If they are hurting you in any way I will take you out of there."
"Okay, Remus. But what will I do while I'm there?"
"Well, just don't tell them that Sirius is dead and they'll still be afraid to hurt you."
"Alright. But please hurry"
"If I try and finish as fast as I can, I might just be able to finish quicker than two weeks." Remus said trying to give Harry as much hope as he could.
End of flashback
'Well at least he is trying.' Harry thought as he started to fall asleep. A few hours later Harry woke screaming from another nightmare. It had been about all of the people that Voldemort had killed. His mother and father, Cedric, and Sirius all blaming him for their deaths and saying that they'd all still be alive if it wasn't for him. He lay perfectly still praying that somehow he had not woken his relatives up. After hearing a voice yelled the phrase "The stupid little freak!" Harry heard his uncle's footsteps storming down the hall.
And then he knew that he had really set off Vernon this time.
"DO YOU THINK IT'S FUNNY TO WAKE US ALL UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT?!" Vernon practically screeched.
"No! I didn't mean to! It was an accident, I-!" Harry was cut off by his uncle wrapping his hands around his neck and strangling him. 'This is it.' Harry thought as he started to pass out. 'He's finally going to kill me.' Suddenly he could hear his Aunt Petunia screaming in the background.
"Vernon! Stop! If you kill the little freak they'll come after us!" The hands around his neck finally loosened and he heard his uncle storm out of the room, all while he lay there gasping for breath.
'Yeah saving your ass is a good reason to not commit murder. Well at least I'm not dead...yet. Please hurry Remus.' Harry thought before finally thankfully blacking out.
1. Remeber Dudley made fun of Harry for that in OotP.
