Chapter One : The Departure
It was a chilly night at privet drive. Harry was wide awake form the terrible dream again. Seeing Dumbledore being murdered by Snape had being troubling him night’s sleep. Most of the night he would lie awake thinking of the future possibilities of the huge task that the headmaster had led before him. It seemed utterly impossible that now Dumbledore had gone he could do it all by alone. Yes, alone he had thought about the conversation he had with his best friends and then decided that he would do this task alone and not to put them in more danger. Because, if a great wizard like Dumbledore can be murdered then with the Leader of the Order gone the whole wizarding world could be at danger more than ever. He had been lying on his bed thinking about all this and one more thought that he could not bear to think that was no more Hogwarts. It gave immense pain to his heart telling himself that however difficult it may be he must not enter Hogwarts because it would put all the students and teachers at immense danger at once.
He had just explained his aunt and uncle 9th time that they have to leave the house for their own safety. Aunt Petunia seemed more concerned about him since he had arrived but of course didn’t express her kindness, otherwise Dudley had also changed, he would stay at one place staring at the stars or carpet with his blank eyes, and was more frightened when addressed. Harry had saved his life from dementors and he had been acting strangely since. Whereas of Uncle Vernon was as typical as ever. He had been whining around Harry about why would they leave this house? And the conversation they both had make harry feel sicker and exhausting. But, he has to convince them to move out before the Death Eaters attack them and torture till death. He could not explain more further than that.
But after a long wait and 10th time he couldn’t control it ….
“…..Why do want to make it more worst day after day I try to tell you ” Harry said,
“Because, I don’t see any reason I could to abandon my house. You are just jealous and you want us gone so that u could hide here for rest of your life”
“and why would u think that?”
“i…… don’t ………. YES, when last year that old man said that there is some kind of protection keeping you safe here form the dark forces, from that day on I was thinking that a day will come when you and your red hair lot would come here to stay”
This was too much. Harry didn’t mind the Dursleys cursing the people he knew and now Vernon seem to cross some sort of line. This caused the temper Harry was holding days ago to burst and he stood up direct face to face to uncle Vernon.
There was plenty of words chattering around his mouth but he didn’t know how to say and then he spoke,
“Fine, I was going to keep you and your family safe, out of the danger that ‘we lot’ are facing but you want to know all the mysterious accidents happened all around the city. Do you want to know who did it? I think you don’t, you still want to think all is safe if we all stay under this roof no matter what happens. Coz IT IS NOT. I’ve been trying to convince you for your own safety and you are babbling of stealing this house for what? And you would surely remember that the magic would end the night I turn 17 didn’t you. Now I am done about convincing you. I am just here to tell you that two of our best aurors are coming here to take you to a safer place, and if you don’t like it then stay here and…………..”
Even though he didn’t like the Dursleys he couldn’t say the word. It was awkward moment among them. It was so silent that they could hear a pin drop on the floor. Then harry turned his face around and started to go upstairs when Dudley spoke..
“These … these aaaaurors can they protect us from Debentors?”
Harry took a deep breath to keep his voice calm and said,
“Yes, they can they are Aurors, it’s their job to catch the Death Eaters and …”
Suddenly, Aunt Petunia gasped…
All of them turned to see her reaction and she suddenly blushed.
Harry could not help but notice that she was the only member in the room that understand what truly DEATH EATER really means.
Then suddenly Dudley spoke and all jumped .
“I am going with them !!”
And there was huge commotion between him and his father…
“Are you out of your mind how … how … how can u trust them. Didn’t I tell you those are dangerous and we do not keep contact with them.”
“But if we are in danger and Debentors attack what will you do then?”
“I….I.. I will. …”
Suddenly, it seemed like that Dudley had caught Uncle Vernon in a tricky question. And he looked to Petunia for help and she was just expressing her feelings of what Dudley had said a moment ago..
“Fine then we will go with your lot ….” and then he went in his room banging and crashing everything that came in his way.
Harry then faced Dudley who was shocked of the question he had just asked and he could tell the horror he was imagining by the look of his face itself. Aunt Petunia on other hand was very nervous and seemed quite uncomfortable. Harry then realized that there is nothing he can do and went upstairs to his room.
Hedwig had just arrived with the letter from Hestia and Dedalus who were to escort the Dursleys away from house to a safer place.
Meanwhile, downstairs Harry could hear all the noise caused by the Dursleys , uncle Vernon’s yelling and stomping his foot every time he walked across the hall. Harry fall on the bed staring at the ceiling wondering what exactly would he fell while saying goodbye the family that made his childhood miserable to live. Drifting to his thoughts he felt asleep. When he woke up it was almost evening, and his stomach grumbled in protest that it was ignored since morning. Stretching himself he stood up and went downstairs for some food.
When he was walking through the stairs he could see that all the Dursleys were gathered in the hall with their luggage packed on the floor wearing their best dresses to show how superior they are in front of the aurors. Harry didn’t care about that anymore, he went to the fridge to see if there is anything to eat.
Harry could understand the voice without even seeing the person… he turned slowly and said “What is it now?”
“Don’t talk to your uncle like that..” Petunia screamed,
Perhaps you should tell that to him too, Harry said to himself,
“When are these people coming?”
“I don’t know..” he said and again went towards the fridge.
“What do you mean by that?”
Harry smiled, he always loved to keep them in dark about the arrivals be it Dumbledoor or Weaslys …..
“They said they should be here by evening, perhaps they are on their way.”
“Or they could be in trouble….”
He sensed the dark humor in his voice..
Harry opened his mouth to reply then he heard a knock on the door..
Suddenly all three of them jumped off the floor. All of them looked at each other like having a mute conversation about choosing the person to open the door. Suddenly Dudley walked forward, and suddenly Aunt Petunia grabbed his hand and whispered in low voice “How do we know they are not DEATH EATERS?”
Harry had to do tremendous effort to control his laughter behind his cough.
“Do you think that Death Eaters would knock the door before killing you?”
Harry was surprised that it was Dudley who spoke, and the other two could not find a reason to argue with it. So, Dudley went to open the door.
“There’s no one out here..”
Harry suddenly froze and ran past his uncle and aunt and shut the door fiercely. There were sweat beads forming on his forehead suddenly that alarmed his cousin and he whispered “Are they here?”
“I m not sure…”
“Dudley Come here..” uncle Vernon said as quietly as possible.
Once all of them were on the same place, the door knocked again, this time more fiercely than earlier. Now all of them were frightened. Dudley said to Harry “Why don’t you do something?”
“Like you did that with Debentors..”
His wand ! it striked to his mind and he went running upstairs unpacking his bag where he kept it as he was warned by Hermione that he shouldn’t use magic when he is in the house. Harry suddenly froze and it struck to him like a bolt.
He went quietly towards the rest of the family and they seemed to be in fear by seeing the look on Harry’s face.
Uncle Vernon grunted as quiet as possible “Where is your ‘thing’ boy?, Do something use it on them like you did on Marge.”
“It is of no use. I can’t do magic outside school till I am 17.”
“I don’t care boy if it is illegal or not just do it or I will blast them with my gun I swear.”
“Yes, do that and they will blast your head on by one.”
“Stop both of you..” Aunt Petunia said listening keenly towards the door. There were two more knocks.
“There are people outside Petunia what on earth are you thinking.”
By that time she was close to the door hearing like her life was depending on it. Few moments went by and then suddenly
Afterwards, she opened the door very slightly enough to peek outside and after some moments closed quietly.
“There is no one knocking….” Petunia said finally, and she went towards them. Now all three of them were looking at her very suspiciously.
“Petunia dear….. Are you all right?” Vernon suddenly sound concerned.
“Yes, there is no one outside the door.”
“Then what about the..”
Knock ………… knock..knock
All three of them froze expect Petunia.
“How would you possibly explain that then?” Dudley said.
“I think it is …..”
And she suddenly signaled Harry to come near. Harry was shocked, what is happening? What would his aunt know about what is outside that he didn’t?
Harry went near her and then she whispered in his ear.
“I think it is Mobiliarbus Charm”
Out of thousand things he expected to hear, this was none of them. He looked at her aunt and he could see the look on her face which was in between exasperation and guilt. Listening this Harry quietly crawled towards the door and listened ….
Sure someone was banging and then suddenly he opened the door very slightly and he saw a piece of wood lying on the right in front of him.
He closed the door and walked quietly towards the three and nodded at her aunt but didn’t tell anyone else. This much suspense was too much to handle for Vernon he was firstly very upset that his wife choose Harry to tell instead of him and secondly he didn’t even know if there was someone standing there or not.
“Enough, will anyone tell me what on earth is happening here?”
“Yes, and what is that you tell Harry? What is really outside?” Dudley spoke.
“It is …..”
Suddenly the telephone rang and it made all of them uncomfortable as they again start to look at each other for whom to answer it. But this time Vernon sprang on the phone as all the suspense was enough for his brain and he needed answers. The three watched as he answered the phone.
“Who are you, and how did you know this number?”
“No, he is not here……………….. ”
“How … how can you know this?”
Then, he turned towards the trio and said to Harry, “It’s for you..”
Harry was shell shocked but instead he answered
“Harry ……….oh. He is there. So glad to hear your voice” said a young chirpy voice.
