So this is a random idea that popped into my head a few days ago. This is just the prologue and it's shorter than I've ever written before. This is the first fic I've written that isn't all about the romance, so I'm sort of worried about it.

Disclaimer – I don't own Harry Potter. I do own the as yet unnamed woman though.

When Harry James Potter was one year and two months old, his parents were murdered by the most powerful dark wizard of their time, perhaps all time. James Potter, a tall man with black, messy hair and round spectacles, died first in a wandless attempt to distract Voldemort from his wife long enough for her to somehow escape. Lily Potter died second. She refused to move from in front of her son and was murdered; placing a strong protection on her young boy that meant Voldemort could not harm him. This meant that Voldemort was almost killed as he attempted to kill Harry.

Harry was then sent by Professor Albus Dumbledore to live with Harry's supposedly only living relatives: Vernon and Petunia Dursley along with their hideously spoilt son, Dudley. He grew up in an environment that made him feel like a house-elf, although he did not know what they were at the time. When he was five years old and out on one of the rare trips the Dursley's allowed him to go on, he saw a woman across the street. She had long black hair and she was quite tall but that was all Harry could see, besides the fact that she was watching him. But his Aunt Petunia dragged him away before he could look closer.

Harry saw the woman frequently after that, whenever he was allowed out of the house. But he never felt threatened by her, he always felt safe. When he was alone in his small cupboard under the stairs, he still felt at home and felt like he was perfectly protected from harm. This feeling continued through Hogwarts and he told his close friends about it. They had no idea what to think and he always wondered who was watching him or if she was even real. He would find out soon enough.

Just a brief introduction. I know it takes a few hours for a new story to be published so I'll put up the first chapter too. Love Bianca :) x
