5. The Man Who Rescued Them
They arrived at a big island with a tiny hut on it. They had a man take them to the island with a tiny boat that harry thought was surely going to sink because of his Uncle's and Dudley's weight together though it didn't. Once we got into the tiny hut Aunt Petunia placed a to blankets down on the couch for her "Baby Angel" (Dudley). And his Uncle and Aunt decided to sleep upstairs. Though no one decided to give Harry, Amelia, Or Jayde blankets so Jayde gave Amelia her sweatshirt and they all slept on the hard ground. Even though Amelia was SO exhausted she wait until every one went to sleep. Once Harry and Jayde were asleep Amelia drew an imaginary cake in the dust and wrote -Happy birthday- Amelia" She sat there and counted down the minutes until she was officially 11. 10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 - She blew out the candles and - BAM! - The door to the hut went down and everyone woke up Harry hid in a corner and Jayde followed grabbing Amelia behind her. As there Uncle and Aunt hurried downstairs and uncle Vernon had a rifle in his hands they faced the giant in the door way. He came inside and said, "Sorry about that" He picked the door up and placed it in the entryway. "I demand you to leave at once, you are breaking in and entering!" Uncle Vernon shouted weakly "Dry up Dursley you great prune!" He twisted his rifle so that it was facing the roof he shot it and it went through the ceiling. He walked over to Dudley and said "Well I haven't seen you since you were a baby Harry but. your a little more then I expected particularly right in the middle! where are your sisters!?" He said in a calm cheerful voice. "I-I'm not Harry" Dudley stammered. Harry walked out and said "I am" The giant looked at him and said "Well of course you are!" he brought out his sisters and the giant smiled a great big smile. "Hello" Said Amelia quietly. He then said "I got something for you afraid I might have sat on it at some point but probably taste good either way," He pulled out a white box with blue ribbon "baked it myself words and all." Amelia opened it. It was a cake that said - Happy birthday Amelia - She looked at it and said "Thank you!" He smiled and said "Not everyday your young lady turns eleven now is it?" He sat on the couch Dudley was sleeping on and took out an umbrella he pointed it at the fire place that Uncle Vernon was trying to get going and blazes shot out of it and caught the logs on fire. Everyone stared in astonishment. Amelia sat the cake on a old table and Harry said "Excuse me but, Who are you?" The giant man was staring at the fire when he said "Rubeus Hagrid, keeper of keys and grounds at Hogwarts" he looked up and said "Of course you three know all about Hogwarts!" They looked puzzled at Hagird. "Sorry no" Harry said Confused "No?" Hagrid said " Bilmeing Harry don't you know about where your parents learned it all?" Harry looked even more confused along with his sisters. "Learned what?" Harry said. Hagrid then leaned closer and said "You three are wizards Harry." There eyes widened. Jayde then said "We're what?" Hagrid said once again "Wizards, And thumping good ones with a bit of practice!" "No" Amelia cut in "you've made a mistake we can't be Wi-Wizards. I mean I'm Just Amelia." Jayde then said "And I'm just Jayde." And Harry also said "And im just Harry... Just Harry." Hagrid nodded and said "Well just Harry and just Amelia and Just Jayde. Have you ever made something happen, anything you couldn't explain when you were angry or...or scared?" They stood there thinking and there eyes widened even more if that was even possible. Hagrid smiled and nodded. He stood up and gave Harry the letter. It was the same letter that he was trying to read all week Jayde and Amelia peered over his shoulder and watched him open it. Dear Ms. Potter Mr. Potter and Ms. Potter. He read aloud We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to Hogwarts school of witch craft and wizardry! Uncle Vernon rushed over and said "He will not be going, I tell you! We swore when we took him in we'd put a stop to all this rubbish!" Harry looked up and said " You knew? You knew all along and you never told us!?" Aunt petunia then said "Of course we knew. How could you all not be? My perfect sister being who she was. My mother and father were so proud the day she got her letter. "We have a witch in the family. Isn't it wonderful?" I was the only one to see her for what she was... a freak! And then she met that Potter. And then she had all of you, and I knew you three would be the same. Just as strange, just as... abnormal. And then if you please, she went and got herself blown up, and we got landed with you three." Jayde stepped up and said "Blown up? You told us they died in a car crash!" Hagrid seemed to finally process everything that was going on "Blown up? Lilly and James Potter blown up?" Aunt Petunia slightly startled said "We had to say SOMETHING!" Hagrid's face turned red "IT'S AN OUTRAGE! A SCANDAL!" Uncle Vernon was determined not to let them learn anything and said, "They'll not be going!" Dudley grabbed Amelia's cake "Oh... and I suppose a great muggle like yourself's gonna stop them?" Hagrid said sarcastically. Amelia looked up and said, "Muggle?" Hagrid then said, "Non-Magic folk These three have had his name since he was born! He'll be going to the finest school of witchcraft and wizardry in the world and he'll be under the greatest headmaster that Hogwarts has ever seen. Albus Dumbledore." "I WILL NOT PAY TO HAVE SOME CRACKPOT OLD FOOL TEACH THEM MAGIC TRICKS!" Uncle Vernon insulted. Hagrid raised his umbrella and threatened, "Never...insult...Albus Dumbledore... in front of me!" He heard Dudley's munching and turned to him with his umbrella pointed and blue lightning came out of it next thing you know Dudley had a Pig tail. Aunt Petunia screamed as well as Uncle Vernon. Jayde, Harry, and Amelia Laughed so hard there faces turned red. Then they all ran upstairs leaving just the four of them standing there smiling and laughing. "I'd Appreciate if you'd 'oughta keep that a secret it's strictly against the rules to use magic outside of Hogwarts." Hagrid said quietly. "Okay. We promise" Amelia said nudging Jayde "Oh um, Yeah we promise." Harry just couldn't stop laughing so he just nodded. Hagrid took out a watch and said "Oh! little behind schedule...Best be off."
