Hi guys! So this is my new story ReMake. This is slash! As in boy on boy goodness. At least it will be once Draco and Harry go past puberty. Be warned, this is my first story, so any and all feedback and reviews would be great! I'm okay if you flame my story because I just really don't care. This is going to be a story about if Draco and Harry became friends and Harry went to Slytherin. Enjoy!
"Hello," said the boy, "Hogwarts, too?"
"Yes," said Harry
"My father's next door buying my books and mother's up the street looking at wands," said the boy. He had a bored drawling voice. "Then I'm going to drag them off to look at racing brooms. I don't see why first years can't have their own. I think I'll bully father into getting me one and I'll smuggle it in somehow."
Harry was strongly reminded of Dudley. But he didn't want to have a Dudley in the muggle and magical world.
"That's not very nice." Harry said with as much confidence as he could manage.
The boy gaped at him, shocked by Harry's response. "Do you know who I am?"
"Do you know who I am?" Harry shot back.
"I'm Draco Malfoy, heir to the Malfoy fortune. My father is one of the most influential politicians around." He said this with an arrogant tone. "And you are?"
"I'm Harry Potter." Harry said in a nonchalant voice. He knew that everybody knew about him, and that they loved him, but this was a test to see just how influential he could be.
"You're Harry Potter? Show me your scar. Everyone knows Harry Potter has a-" I lifted my bangs and showed him the lightning bolt scar. The boy looked very shocked, but then composed himself into a serious look he must have picked up from his father. "Well, you'll soon find out that some wizarding families are better than others, Harry. You don't want to go making friends with the wrong sort. I can help you there."
He held out his hand to shake Harry's and Harry shook it confidently.
"I think this is going to be the beginning of a beautiful friendship Harry."
The boys continued to talk as Harry got fitted for his robes. Well, Draco talked while Harry listened and made comments in the appropriate places. He was mostly telling Harry about Quidditch and the Wizarding World, which was quite beneficial for Harry who knew nothing. Harry was actually finding himself enjoying Draco's company. Draco was a bit snobbish and condescending, but it was really just for attention. Plus, Draco was making it his job that Harry meets all the right people and gets to know all the right places. For the first time in his life Harry was being pampered and attended to, and he absolutely loved it.
"I say, look at that man!" Draco said suddenly, nodding toward the front window. Hagrid was standing there, grinning at Harry and pointing to two large ice creams to show he couldn't come in.
"That's Hagrid," Harry said, pleased to know something Draco didn't. "He works at Hogwarts."
"Oh, I've heard of him. He's sort of a servant, isn't he?"
Harry thought about that for a moment. Hagrid's job , from the little he'd been told, didn't seem to nice and he was sent on errands that no one else wanted to do, such as picking up Harry. It reminded Harry of how he was treated at the Dursley's.
"He's the gamekeeper," said Harry. "You shouldn't be so rude to him. If he wasn't there to do the dirty work then you would be the one doing it."
"I guess you do have a point. Why is he with you anyways? Shouldn't your guardians be here?"
"I've been living with a muggle family that hates me and treats me worse than Hagrid. They were more than happy to see me leave. I didn't even know magic existed before Hagrid came and told me."
"You lived with muggles! That's atrocious! Why do you live there? Don't you have a godparent or some relative that could take you in? I know that if something happened to mother and father I would be sent to Uncle Sev. He's the potions master by the way. So he'll be our teacher for Hogwarts." Draco seemed to be distracted for a moment before starting again. "I cannot believe that you were sent off to live with muggles! You don't have to go back to them do you? Not now that you know about magic."
"The muggle family that I live with is my only living relatives. I have to go back to them after I finish shopping for school." Harry started to get uncomfortable bringing back thoughts of the Dursleys.
"Well, I won't allow it to happen. As my best friend you'll be staying with me." Harry's heart soared at the thought. Not going back to the Dursley's! And Draco called him his best friend! He's never had a best friend before! Dudley used to bully everyone to stay away from him because he was a freak. At that moment a man looking like Draco came in. His long blonde hair was tied back with a ribbon and his gloved hands firmly gripped a cane with the head of a snake on top. He looked very intimidating.
"Draco, there you are. We really must be going, your mother is waiting for us. Ah, you've made a friend," He said, noticing me for the first time. "Well come on Draco, we don't have all day."
"Father! Do you know who this is?"
"No, nor do I care. You can see him on the train to Hogwarts. Do not argue with me Draconis." His face was stern and caused Draco to shrink back from him.
But then Draco regained his confidence and said, "This is Harry Potter!" His father swept an appreciative eye over me. "And he's living with muggles! And he has to be seen with the oaf Hagrid! Can't we keep him? Please Father!"
"I see. But does Mr. Potter wish to come with us?" He turned towards me, and arched a perfectly shaped eyebrow in my direction. I nodded enthusiastically. I did not want to go back to the Dursely's and Hagrid was nice, but he's going to send me back to the Dursely's. "Well then come along now, if you're going to be seen with Malfoy's from now on you must look the part. Anyways, nobody wishes to see the boy-who-lived in clothes that look as if they were made for a killer whale."
I smiled at his joke. It seemed that he wasn't as uptight as I had thought. This might actually work out.
"Eh Malfoy! Where do you think yer goin'? Come on Harry, I thought we might stop fer a bit to eat if yeh don't mind." Mr. Malfoy stepped up close to Hagrid and I could see Hagrid visibly shrink.
"Ah, Rubeus, how are you this fine day?" Mr. Malfoy looked extremely powerful and domineering. So much so that they were getting looks from the street shoppers.
"I don't want ter talk to you Malfoy. Just what do you think yer doing with Harry?"
"You see Rubeus, I am a governor of this school and therefore I only have its student's best interests at heart. Young Harry here has told me of his horrible living conditions with muggles. We just cannot have that, now can we? Go tell Professor Dumbledore that Mr. Potter is with me, and will continue to be in my care until he gets onto the train for Hogwarts. Is that clear?" I could now see why Mr. Malfoy was such a good politician. He could threaten and intimidate a person that is 3 times his size as if he was adding 2 and 2. It was really quite a sight. Draco stood next to me, obviously used to his father's behavior as he barely batted an eye. I could however see him smirking slightly.
"Now yeh see here Malfoy. Professor Dumbledore sent Harry to live with those muggles for a reason, and he's goin' to stay there until Professor Dumbledore says no. Come on Harry." Mr. Malfoy placed his hand on my shoulder, keeping from going to Hagrid. Not that I had even thought about it, but I did feel bad for Hagrid, he was only following orders.
"I do not have any more time to waste on this trivial matter. But please do tell you're puppet master that he had no legal right to place Mr. Potter in that wretched house and that we will be going to court about this." I looked up at Mr. Malfoy, shocked that he was willing to do such a thing for me. Looking over at Hagrid I could see that he looked just as shocked as I felt. "Come on boys, we have errands to run and I would hate to have Narcissa waiting on us."
True to his word Mr. Malfoy bought me a new wardrobe of wizarding robes. I liked them, they were soft and silky, and obviously very expensive. We also went to the Flourish and Blotts where I was able to get not only my school books, but also new books that would tell me all about the wizarding world. Draco thought it was funny when there was a whole entire books section dedicated to "the boy-who-lived" and none of the information was even right. They all thought that I was getting special training, or in hiding from Vol- You-Know-Who. I haven't! I've been with muggles! Once we finished all of our shopping the Malfoy's introduced me to the floo network. I don't like it very much. Mr. Malfoy said that he doesn't trust me enough to send me on my own, so I went with Draco. When we fell out on the other side I almost hit the floor face first, but Draco grabbed my hand and stopped my fall. We kept holding hands until Mr. Malfoy came back.
"Well Mr. Potter, welcome to Malfoy Manor."
