First a few notes:

This is the first story I have ever written and I live in Belgium, making English my second language. If you find mistakes in my story, then tell me and I'll correct them, but I'm asking you to bear with me.

Second, I'm still going to school so it might take a while to update my story.

Third, I hope that you'll review and tell me what you think of my story!

Have fun!!!



Leaving for Hogwarts.

He was the Boy-Who-Lived, the one who survived Voldemort. And still he had to do chores! Harry grumbled by himself.

"It's no fair! Why do I always have to do the chores!?"

He sighed. He knew he had to do so, otherwise he wouldn't get anything to eat. It has always been like that. He never got beaten, but he also never got to be loved. But that didn't matter anymore. He was just happy to now that summer was coming to an end so he could go back to Hogwarts. Hogwarts, the school that teaches magic! He had made friends there, and very good ones too, like Ron and Hermione, and don't forget Hagrid! Hagrid, the friendly half-giant who had taken him to Hogwarts. He had also made some enemies. Draco and his pawns didn't like him to much. But he didn't let him be bothered by that. He was very glad to go to Hogwarts again. After all, there he would see Ron and Hermione again! He had already gone to Diagon Ally to get his school stuff because the Dursleys hadn't wanted him to go with his friends, the 'freaks'. So they too him to London and told him to be back in 2 hours. Harry yawned. He was really tired.



"Harry! Wake up you lazy boy! You cook breakfast and then we'll get you to the train station! I'm glad to get rid of you again! WAKE UP!"

Harry slowly woke up and smiled. He would go to Hogwarts again! The sheer joy! He got dressed, ran downstairs and made breakfast for his aunt, uncle and cousin. Soon they were on the way to platform 9 ¾ .

"Hey Harry! There you are! How was your vacation? Not too bad I hope!"

Ron launched himself happily at Harry.

"Nah, it was okay," replied Harry.

They found Hermione and they chatted all the way to Hogwarts, being glad that the golden trio was once again together.



Dumbledore sat in his office, thinking about the growing danger. He had to protect Harry, one way or the other. He made professor Snape come to his office.

"You called me, Albus"

"Indeed, Severus. I have to ask you a favour."

"And this favour is..?"

Severus Snape looked at Albus Dumbledore. He did not like this feeling of dread he had.

"Severus, I want you to keep an extra eye on Harry. You know as well as I do that he has the tendency to get into trouble."

"Oh no Albus. You got to be kidding! I don't even like the little brat!"

"Al the better! He wouldn't believe that you would keep an eye on him! At least not to help him."

Severus sighed. He could not in good conscience decline. "Very well."

Dumbledore looked at Snape with that little glint in his eyes. "Thank you Severus"

Snape sneered. He just knew that Albus was up to something!



Please review! I know it isn't much yet, forgive me!!
