Chapter 1: October 31st, 1981
James Potter sat on the sofa next to his wife, Lily Evans. Their son, Harry, was on the floor watching the colored smoke that came out of James' wand. Chubby hands reached for the smoke, a wide smile on baby Harry's face. A bang was heard through the air.
"It's Voldemort! Lily take Harry and get out of here!" James shouted.
"I'm not leaving you, James!" Lily protested.
James picked up Harry and gave him to Lily. She looked at her husband in fear, and worry— knowing that it was unlikely that James would even get out of a fight alive against Voldemort.
Lily ran up the stairs of the house. James stood in front of the door awaiting Voldemort. His head raced trying to find some explanation of how this could've happened. Peter would've died to protect them, right? He was the secret keeper after all. Which lead James to the other possibility. One of his best friends had betrayed him.
The door slammed open. A tall figure in a black cloak stood in front of James.
"James Potter, move out of the way," the figure hissed.
"Not on my life Voldemort," James shouted.
In determination to keep Lily and Harry safe, James stomped on the floor. The ground shifted violently as James raised his wand and a chunk of stone flew at Voldemort. He laughed when the stone missed.
"STUPIFY MAXIMA!" Voldemort shouted.
James fell back onto the stairs, frozen. Voldemort kicked aside the still body. The door to the nursery door flung open.
"Step aside," Voldemort ordered.
"Never," Lily protested standing in front of a crib. Her eyes were watering,
"I said move aside you silly girl!"
"Take me, not Harry. He's... He's just a child."
"Avada Kedavra!" Voldemort shouted.
Lily Potter fell over dead. Harry whom was in the crib watched. Not crying at all. Waiting for his mother to get up and laugh and his father to take of the hood. Waiting for this to all be a joke. Of course, more simplified in the mind of a baby.
Voldemort looked at Harry in disgust. A silvery white light shimmered around Harry.
Get the stone. It will bring us more power and the child is a menace, a voice hissed.
"AVADA KEDAVRA!" Voldemort shouted.
A blinding green and white light flooded the room. The body of Voldemort fell onto the ground, his robes rumpled in a heap over the corpse. A black smoke poured out of Voldemorts mouth before returning to the corpse. It's fesh was ripped away by the smoke, blood smearing the black robe and the bones vanished. The robe became a lump of fabric, with no trace of the wizard. The smoke circled the room before blasting out of the window and flying off into the night.
Sirius Black appeared at Godrics Hollow. The house was a wreck, the door ajar. He knelt by James on the stairs. He felt for a pulse but found no trace of one. His best friend was dead. He trembled, wanting to cry. Surely Lily and Harry were still alive. Standing up he went up to the nursery where Lily would probably be. Lily was motionless, dead. Harry sat in the crib crying and had a lightning scar was on his forehead. He picked up baby Harry and walked out the door.
Dumbledore and Hagrid were waiting for him.
"Sirius I insist you give us Harry. He will be safe I can assure you," Dumbledore said.
"After this I have little reason to trust you," Sirius said with a scowl.
With a flick of Dumbledore's wand, Sirius felt himself giving Harry to Dumbledore.
"I think that turning Peter Pettigrew in would be a good idea," Dumbledore said. "Isn't he the one who told Voldemort of the Potters location, anyway?"
And Sirius felt himself walking away from the house. Away from Harry.
