Chapter 1: Gifts & Curse
A book opens revealing the story told…
Long ago, in a far away land, there lived a king named James Potter and his fair queen Lilly Potter. For years they have longed for a child. Finally, they have received their wish. A son was born and they named him Harry Potter. He was his parent's pride and joy. A holiday was proclaimed throughout the kingdom so that all of a high or low estate might pay homage to the infant prince. And our story begins on that joyful day….
A crowd is on its way to the castle.
Thus on this great and joyous day the kingdom celebrated the long awaited royal birth. Good King James and Queen Lilly welcomed their life long friends.
"Their royal highness, King Lucius, Queen Narcissa, and Prince Draco Malfoy," the herald introduced.
Now fondly had these monarchs dreamed that one day their kingdom would unite. Thus today it would be announced that Draco, son of Lucius and heir to Harry, would be betrothed. So to him, Draco brought him a gift and looked unknowingly on his future bride.
Next, the Herald announced the arrival of the fairies.
"The most honored and exalted Excellencies, the four good fairies Albus Dumbledore, Severus Snape, Molly Weasley and Alice Longbottom."
"Oh! Isn't he precious?" Molly cooed as she gazed at the child.
Dumbledore and Alice both agreed. However, Snape just frowned and spared a glance at the dark haired infant. "Looks like his father," he drawled before falling again into silence.
"Your majesties," the four chorused as they turned to Lilly and James Potter. If Fairy Snape's eyes lingered on Good Queen Lily for just a moment too long, all took it as a sign of her beauty, her charm, and her sweet soul.
"Your majesty…we each came to bless little Harry Potter with a gift. No more or less." Dumbledore tells him. "My gift to the prince shall be wisdom. The prince shall gain wisdom that takes wing. A prince to rule a kingdom that will soon crown him king."
Dumbledore waved his wand as he said the words, bestowing his gift upon the child. The next person to bestow their gift was Molly Weasley.
"My gift to our prince would be a heart of gold. Shall he know love even as he grows old." She says, waving her wand and bestowing her magical spell.
Next came Severus Snape.
"The gift of charm is what I give unto thee. Unsurpassed even by beauty."
At last, it was Alice Longbottom's turn. Ready, Alice stepped forward to bestow her gift upon the newborn child when with the blow of the wind the castle doors swung open. There was a flash of lightning and the sound of thunder before Voldemort appeared.
"It's Voldemort," Alice says fearfully.
"I wonder what he wants!" Molly replied not at all pleased.
Every one knew that the appearance of Voldemort was never good. In fact, it bode ill for both the king and queen if the evil Fae happens to show up at their door.
"Shh!" Severus warns the other two who has spoken.
"Well what do we have here? This is quite the assembly! King James, Queen Lily, royalty, nobility, the gentry. And look…even the Mudbloods!"
Seeing red at hearing this, Molly's gaze turned into a glare and was going to stomp over to Voldemort and give him what for. However, it was Dumbledore who held her, he himself sensing trouble.
"But I do have to admit that I was quite upset when I did not receive a invitation." Voldemort simply stated.
"That's cause no one wants you here, you git!" Molly replied. "I wish you had taken the hint."
"Now, now Molly. There's no need for name calling." Dumbledore says, trying to control his friend and do damage control although he already feared that it was already too late.
All eyes went on Voldemort as the emotion of surprise crossed his face. However, Dumbledore was not stupid. He knew that this would not bode well. The oldest fairy had no clue how right he was.
"Oh…well…how embarrassing!" Voldemort responds. "I have to admit that I was honestly hoping it was an honest oversight. And I am never the one to stay where I am not wanted."
"So get going!" Molly replied, stressing her words heavily. Her fiery red hair was a good indication of her temper when it suddenly burst into Fairy-fire, harmless but a bad sign nonetheless.
Snape put a hand over her mouth also having a bad feeling. He and the others knew that Voldemort was not nice. There was a catch. And somehow, he too knew that Voldemort must be up to something. Whatever it was…he had a feeling that the king and queen will not like it.
"So you're not offended?" Queen Lily asked, a bit worried herself, her eyes upon her son just in case.
"Of course not. And to prove it, I shall bestow a gift upon the child." Voldemort inquired.
Lily had a bad feeling. But being naïve, and all around good people who believed in the goodness of Faekind and humanity, her and the king both agreed to allow it since it was not like Voldemort to give gifts each day. Self consciously, the four were closer to the cradle.
Voldemort points his wand at the cradle.
"Your son will grow up beloved by all with charm, grace, and a heart of gold. However, before the sun sets on his seventeenth birthday, the prince shall prick his finger on a spindle of a spinning wheel and die!"
Giving a cackle, Voldemort disappeared as the queen ran and took the baby wrapped in a blue blanket in her arms and held him close. King James moved to his wife's side and comforts her.
"All is not lost." Dumbledore says as Queen Lily wept, the sounds harsh from her beautiful throat, a throat that often charmed birds from the sky and to her lap.
She looked at him with tears in her eyes and then at her husband.
"What do you mean?" King James asked, seething in both anger and despair for his son.
"Alice has not given her gift yet." Dumbledore tells them.
"So she can undo this horrible curse?" King James asked, a bit hopefully.
Queen Lily also looked up hopefully.
"No I can't. Voldemort is way too powerful." Alice responded.
The queen and king again bowed their heads in defeat.
"But she can twist the spell at least." Dumbledore informed them.
"Yes…Molly will have to help."
"But…" Molly started to protest, eyes wide.
"Just do your best, dear." Alice tells her.
After glancing around she nodded and stepped forward pointing her wand at the newborn.
"Sweet prince, through this wicked witch's trick, a spindle should your finger prick. A ray of hope there still may be in this. This gift I give to thee. Not in death but only in sleep. The fateful prophecy you keep. And from this slumber you shall wake. When true love's kiss the spell shall break. For true love conquers all."
However, still fearful for his son's life, King James decreed then and there that every spinning wheel in the kingdom should on that very day be burnt. And so it was done…
