1. Chapter 1

The boy opened his eyes, confused. He blinked twice, then sat up. His messy black hair, same as his father, was more ruffled than usual, and his green eyes, as his mother's, were groggy and unsure. What had just happened?

Who- What- When-

 

"Harry, wake up! Remember, we're going to Diagon Alley to get your things for Hogwarts, remember?" A soft voice called out to him from the bottom of the stairs. He was suddenly alert. Oh, yes! Diagon Alley! To get his supplies for his Wizarding School, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Where his parents, Lily and James Potter, went.

 

He slid out of bed and walked over to his closet, which had clothes of sorts, nothing too fancy, for the Potters weren't fancy. He changed into baggy blue jeans and a white polo, then into loafers, or whatever those shoes were called.

The 11 year old boy named Harry James Potter, a thin boy with messy black hair, green eyes and round glasses, walked down the stairs and into the kitchen. His mother was waving her wand around, which made the eggs fry on the skillet, the biscuits bake in the oven and the tea boil in the pot.

"Good morning Harry, big day isn't it? Are you excited?" His father smiled, and looked at him from beneath his round-frame glasses. Harry smiled back and nodded, grateful to finally be going to get his things from Diagon Alley. He's been there, many times before, whenever his parents felt they needed to buy a new cloak, or the old family cat, Holly, needed to be checked up apon. Or maybe even if they wanted some ice cream. Besides, Lily and James were good friends with many of the wizards and witches who hung around Diagon Alley or the Leaky Cauldron, like Tom the Bartender and Rubeus Hagrid. Sirius Black, Harry's godfather, also stopped by to visit and take Harry out for some ice cream or just to lunch at the Leaky Cauldron.

 

"Harry, have a seat, breakfast should be ready in a moment, and Emily should be out soon." Harry's mother referred to his little sister, younger by about 2 years. She was almost 9 years old.

Harry took a seat, his mouth watering by all the good smells that filled the room. Emily entered, her straight strawberry blonde hair brushed neatly and her green eyes shining. Harry smiled at Emily, who smiled back with perfectly straight teeth. Lily had straightened both of her children's teeth by magic, unlike hers. Her parents made her go the Muggle way, by "braces". Apparently, to Harry, braces were metal "strings" glues to a Muggle's teeth and tightened tightly. Then, after a couple of years, they would un-glue them and their teeth would be straight. Harry didn't see the logic of THAT, but hey, Muggles aren't exactly normal.

At lease to Harry.
