I Wanna Ruin Our Friendship

By Tsya Gant

Romance / Adventure

Chapter 1

It was ten years after the Dursleys found their bastard niece on their doorstep. They planned to beat the 'freakishness' out of her, and were succeeding for the most part.
Harriet Jamie Potter lived a devastating life at her aunt and uncle's house. Her aunt Veronica ordered her around and pushed her all the time saying that she's a freak and should be grateful that they let her live there. But Harriet was more worried about her uncle Penton. She knew that he was tired of his wife and wanted to divorce. But he never did. Instead, he eyed Harriet like she was a bag of free candy. Harriet was able to avoid him for the most part. But she didn't know how long she could keep this up. She knew that one day her uncle would get her.

The only person she liked in the house was her cousin, Dahlia. She treat her more like a delicate doll than a freak and used her like one, too. She also used her to cheat on her test, knowing that Harriet knows all the answers, she is smart, after all. Harriet didn't mind being a dress-up doll or a cheating tool, as long as she is treated nicely.
Harriet was small for her age, and looked even smaller because of Dahlia's hand-me-downs. Her shirts were always slipping off her shoulders and sometimes her chest an she had to used an old string to keep her pants and skirts up. She had messy, jet black hair and sparkling green eyes that hid behind thick glasses that were held together by duct tape. Everyone laughed at her appearance expect Dahlia and her friends. Dahlia's friends made a deal with Harriet that if she does their homework they'll be nice to her. Despite her appearance, she has more brain than beauty. She spent all her life trying to learn more bout herself and everything around her. She was lucky that her aunt lets her go to the library everyday and bring books home, as long as she stays out of her way. Harriet enjoys reading more than anything. She loved it when she got absorbed in a good book. Even her textbooks were enchanting to her! But just because she read a lot doesn't mean she's that intelligent. Like the time she let a completely stranger in the house just because he said he was there to clean for her. She was able to call the police just in time, but that didn't stop her aunt from beating her. She was, however, smart enough to find out that she was a witch. She knew there were others like her, as well. She was just waiting for they to come and get her…


Harriet stared at the massive lady in front of her. It was weeks after Dahlia's birthday. She had talked to a snake, got a letter saying that she was invited to a magical school called Hogwarts that she hide and never mentioned, and now was standing in a hut, on her birthday, in the middle of the ocean just because her aunt and uncle wanted to avoid the other letters that came. This giant lady had knocked down the hut's door and announced that she was there to get Harriet. She even gave Harriet a cake and cooked her sausages. "I'm Ruby Hagrid, but yeh jus' call meh Hagrid. I was sen' by Dumbledore to take yeh shoppin' for supplies. I'm sure yeh know all about Hogwarts, right?" Harriet shrugged. " I know it's a magic school, but nothing else."
"WHAT?!" Her aunt roared, her face turning an ugly shade of purple. "YOU KNEW!? ALL THIS TIME, YOU KNEW AND NEVER TOLD US?!"
"I NEVER TOLD YOU BECAUSE I KNEW THAT YOU WOULD JUST TREAT ME WORST THAN YOU ALREADY DO! I KNOW A LOT OF THING S YOU DON'T KNOW, LIKE HOW TO GET A JOB AND HOW TO HIDE MY MONEY AND HOW TO SAVE ENOUGH OF IT TO GET MY OWN NANNY AND A HOUSE!!" Everyone in the room was shocked. Dahlia was the first one to speak. "Can you tell me where you work?" Veronica and Penton stared at their daughter in disbelief. "What? I want my own house, too! I can't just sit around all day and try to be the perfect daughter! I'm tired of it! I wanna be like Harriet! More independent and smart!" Dahlia crossed the room in a few quick steps and put her arm around Harriet's shoulder. "I'm going with Harriet, where ever she goes!"
Harriet smiled. She knew that Dahlia was a witch. Whatever blood that made her a witch skipped her aunt or uncle and went to Dahlia. "Actually, you were assigned to go to Hogwarts, as well." Hagrid said. Dahlia beamed. "Yay! I get to hang out with Harriet more!" She hugged her cousin. "Let's get going, I have a hotel room reserved for yeh. We'll go shopping tomorrow." Harriet and Dahlia nodded and followed Hagrid out the door, leave their guardians behind in tears of angry and sadness.
