1. Meeting the Boy who lived

The wind blew through the cracks of the shed. Harry saw that it was 11:59 on Dudley's watch. 60 seconds until Harry was 11. There was another crack of thunder and it sounded like someone was coming to the front door.

 

That's Impossible.There are no other boats. Harry thought.

 

30 more seconds. There was pounding on the door. Dudley didn't even flinch and he heard his aunt and uncle in the other room snoring. 10 more seconds. More pounding. 9. It was getting louder. 8. Dudley was still snoring dead to the world. 6. the door was getting pounded harder. 4. Dudley woke up. 3. 2. 1. Harry's Uncle Vernon ran out with a rifle in his hands. "Who's there?" he shouted. "I warn you ---- I'm armed!"

 

Then the door flew off it's hinges and Harry saw two figures.

One of the figures was a giant of a man with a bushy brown beard and bushy eyebrows his eyes glinted like black beetles. Then the other figure was a pretty girl his age who was smaller than the man she had blue eyes. But her hair was a lighter brown than his and was curly.

"Couldn't make us a cup o' tea could yeh? It's not been an easy journey...." The giant said.

He strode over to the sofa where Dudley sat frozen with fear.

"Budge up, yeh great lump," said the stranger.

Dudley squeaked and ran to hide behind his mother, who was crouching, terrified, behind Uncle Vernon.

"An' here's Harry!" said the giant.

Harry looked up into the fierce, wild, shadowy face and saw that the beetle eyes were crinkled in a smile.

"Las' time I saw you, you was only a baby," said the giant. "Yeh look a lot like yer dad, but yeh've got yer mom's eyes."

Uncle Vernon made a funny rasping noise.

"I demand that you two leave at once," he said. "You are breaking and entering!"

"Ah, shut up, Dursley, yeh great prune," said the giant; he reached over the back of the sofa, jerked the gun out of Uncle Vernon's hands, bent it into a knot as easily as if it had been made of rubber, and threw it into a corner of the room.

 

 The girl giggled.

 

Uncle Vernon made another funny noise, like a mouse being trodden on.

"Anyway --- Harry," said the giant, turning his back on the Dursleys, "a very happy birthday to yeh. We got summat fer yeh here --- I mighta sat on it at some point, but it'll taste all right."

From an inside pocket of his black overcoat he pulled a slightly squashed box. Harry opened it with trembling fingers. Inside was a large, sticky chocolate cake with Happy Birthday Harry written on it in green icing.

Harry looked up at the giant and the girl. He meant to say thank you, but the words got lost on the way to his mouth, and what he said instead was, "Who are you?"

The giant chuckled.

"True, we haven't introduced ourselves. Rubeus Hagrid, Keeper of Keys and grounds at Hogwarts."

"April Hagrid. I'm going to be a first year this year at Hogwarts."

He held out an enourmous hand and shook Harry's whole arm.
