A/N: TT~TT I know, most of you who've read my Kingdom Keys, Pendragon, or any of my other stories must want to strangle me... But I have a good reason this time! ^-^ I'm proud to say that I'm answering AbNaGbEyL's HarryHarry Twin Challenge! This idea is AbNaGbEyL's, and hers alone. I take no credit in the plot. . I'm just writing for the fun of it. XD I demand you read her stories! They're awesome!
Disclaimer: I do NOT own Harry Potter, nor do I own the idea for this fanfic. Those rightfully belong to J.K. Rowling and AbNaGbEyL. Thank You.
Ever since Harrison and Hadrian Potter were born, they've been identical. That is, until that one fateful night…
Lily and James Potter smiled at each other as their babies cooed cutely.
"Our little Ari and Dri are so adorable!" Lily gushed. James just kept on grinning as the little ones grabbed a finger on each hand of Lily's.
An anonymous ringing sounded in James' ears and his smile faded. He rushed to the door and shouted for Lily to take the children and run, but before he could finish his sentence, the door burst open and a green light struck James in the chest - making James drop to the ground, dead.
A cloaked figure walked into the room, wand held in its pale hand. Lily appeared in the hallway and choked back a sob. She glared at the figure as he pulled back his hood to reveal a pale, snake-like face with crimson, snake eyes.
"You will never kill my babies, Voldemort!" Lily cried; running back into the room where Harrison and Hadrian were watching in wonder.
The cloaked figure, Voldemort, followed Lily and chuckled as she stood with her arms out in front of the crib holding her two boys.
"Now, now, no need to be drastic. Step aside and I won't have to kill you." Voldemort hissed out, pointing his wand straight at Lily. Lily started to cry.
"No! You can't kill my boys! Please! I'll do anything!" Voldemort laughed and flicked his wand.
"Avada Kedavra!" Lily screamed as the green curse hit her chest and sent her slumping to the ground, also dead.
Voldemort stepped over Lily's body and looked at the two boys who were crying. He raised his wand and sneered at the two.
"Now, who shall I kill first? You? Alright, if you insist. Avada Kedavra!" As soon as the green light hit Harrison James Potter, it rebounded and hit Voldemort. Voldemort screamed in pain and in a blinding flash of light, he disappeared.
~Six Years later~
Seven year old, Hadrian Evans Potter shook his twin lightly. Harrison groaned cutely and rolled over in the limited space he had. Hadrian frowned and shook Harrison's shoulder again, harder.
"Ari, wake up! Aunt Petunia wanted us to be awake before she came down so we can make breakfast as soon as she lets us out!" Hadrian explained in a whisper, shaking his twin again. Harrison, or Ari, sat up slowly and rubbed his left eye.
"Dri, I was having a good dream! Why'd you have to wake me up?" Hadrian, or Dri, grinned at Ari and ruffled his hair.
"Cause big bro, I have to make sure you don't get in trouble!" Ari frowned a bit, and then broke into a grin.
"Isn't that supposed to be the other way around?" Dri pouted slightly, and then jumped as the stairs creaked over them. Dri looked at his twin sullenly.
"That'll be Aunt Petunia…" Ari nodded at Dri's statement as the door to their cupboard was unlocked.
"Alright, get started you two!" Aunt Petunia said in a firm voice. Ari and Dri filed out of the cupboard and into the kitchen.
"Yes, Aunt Petunia…" Both boys said at the same time. They started to make breakfast in silence.
After Ari and Dri finished putting breakfast on the table, Aunt Petunia walked up and inspected the food. She nodded slightly and took a bite of eggs, nodding again. Aunt Petunia stood up straight and wiped her hands on the apron around her waist.
"You two forgot the cheese. Remember it next time." She said with a slight frown on her face. Ari and Dri glanced at each other before striking up a chorus of 'Yes Aunt Petunia!' With the Dursleys, that was as much of a compliment as Ari and Dri would ever get.
Knowing that they weren't allowed to eat with the rest of the Dursleys, Ari and Dri slipped back into their cupboard… After dropping off the mail in Uncle Vernon's spot, of course.
Ari sat with his back to the wall and Dri went to sit next to him. Dri took Ari's hand, causing the twins to lock eyes. Ari raised an eyebrow and Dri sighed, scooting closer to his brother.
"What's wrong Dri?" Ari asked, still staring at his brother in worry. Dri shook his head and placed it on Ari's shoulder. Ari looked down at Dri and squeezed his hand. "C'mon, you can tell me."
"Well… We're supposed to be twins, right?" Ari slowly nodded his head, not knowing where this was going.
"And twins are supposed to be identical, right?" Again, Ari nodded slowly. Dri sniffed and pouted.
"Well, we're not! Don't you see?! I'm supposed to look exactly like you, but you've got a scar, and I don't!" Dri looked like he was on the verge of crying, so Ari hugged him.
"It's alright Dri… It's not so bad, is it?" At this time, Dri promptly started sobbing quietly on Ari's shoulder. Ari winced and hugged his brother tighter. "I'm really sorry Dri… I shouldn't have said that…"
Ari sighed and began to comfort Dri by rubbing his back. 'I really wish Dri had my scar, too… That way, we'd both be happy…' Ari thought to himself.
Dri calmed down slightly and pulled back, wiping his eyes from under his glasses. Ari's own eyes widened in disbelief so he rubbed his eyes, then stared at Dri. Dri sniffled and blinked as he realized Ari was staring at him.
"What?" Dri asked - his voice slightly raw. Ari quickly looked around the cupboard and found what he was looking for. Ari picked up the hand mirror and held it in front of Dri. He gasped, and then stared. "No… No way…"
In that mirror, Dri saw his piercing emerald green eyes staring back at him, his glasses framing his eyes. Dri also saw his wild, messy dark hair. Everything was the same, except for one thing. The boy in the mirror had a lightning-bolt shaped scar - just like Ari. Dri reached up to touch his forehead (the boy in the mirror copied) and Dri felt the scar… It was real.
Ari put down the mirror and Dri looked at him, suddenly breaking into a grin.
"You know what I'm thinking, Ari?" Dri asked, taking Ari's hand once more. Ari grinned back at Dri.
"I think I do, Dri." An evil gleam appeared in both twins' eyes.
"This'll be fun…" Both boys said simultaneously.
