Harry Potter and the Good Life

By Phylicia Davis

Romance

The Beginning

Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were getting ready for Halloween dinner with their family and friends when the doorbell rang. "I'll get it!" it's probably Lilly and James with little Harry. Petunia called. When she opened the door she didn't find her sister and her brother in law with her nephew, instead she found Professor Albus Dumbledore and Professor Minerva McGonagall who had her nephew, and Professor McGonagall was rocking him in her arms while humming a lullaby.

Professor Dumbledore what are u doing here? Petunia asked. Hello Petunia we need to talk. Dumbledore said. What About? Petunia asked. It's about your sister. McGonagall said. What's wrong with her? Petunia asked. Petunia sit down please. McGonagall said. No I'm standing up; now please tell me what's wrong with my sister. Petunia said. Petunia, Lilly and James are dead. Dumbledore said.

No! Petunia yelled. In the dining room, everybody turned to the side where Petunia's scream came from. Excuse me everybody. Vernon Said. Pet what's wrong? Why did you scream? Vernon asked. Lilly and James are dead Vernon! Petunia exclaimed. Professors Dumbledore, McGonagall explain how this could happen.

Vernon said as he comforted Petunia. Lord Voldemort came to Lilly, James and little Harry's house, James fought while Lilly ran upstairs to the nursery and cast an ancient protection spell over Harry. So when Voldemort got to the nursery he told her to move that he only wanted Harry but she wouldn't so he killed her, but she did what the spell wanted her to do a mother's love for her child. Dumbledore explained.

So my sister died protecting Harry? Petunia asked. Yes and its very honorable. McGonagall said. We want you to keep Harry and raise him. Dumbledore said. What about Sirius? Vernon asked. He wants to visitation rights to Harry, and split holidays if that's okay with you? McGonagall asked. Of course, he's Harry's godfather, he's always welcome here. Petunia and Vernon said in unison. Okay treat him well. Dumbledore said. Yes sir. Vernon said. Okay good luck Harry Potter. Dumbledore said.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot.
