"I'm leaving Harry, I'll miss you," I said giving my brother a big hug.
"What? Why?" he asked.
"I can't stay here anymore. You can't either. Come with me, we'll leave find an orphanage, or something. Anywhere but here. Please Harry," I begged.
"I can't Lilli, how would we leave? What if we get separated? It may be horrible here, but we have each other, please, stay with me."
"I'm sorry, Harry. I love you. I'll come back for you once we're old enough, I promise you. I'm leaving this afternoon."
I packed my toothbrush, my hair brush, and a change of clothes, in an old brown paper bag from last shopping trip, that I snuck out of the recycle bin. I said my goodbyes to Harry and Dudley was with his 'gang' most likely beating up a six year, aunt petunia was gathering laundry, and uncle Vernon was at work. I grabbed my bag and walked out the front door.
I had made it six blocks before someone realized that a little girl was walking around by herself.
"Young lady, what are you doing out by yourself? Where are you guardians?" a strict looking woman asked me, appearing as if from thin air. She wore funny clothes, like robes and cloaks from pictures in history books.
What was I supposed to say? I don't have a story ready.
"That's what I thought, come along I'll be taking you home, she said taking my hand and tuggng me in the direction of the Dursleys.
"No, miss please! I can't go back they hurt us there. Please believe miss," I begged.
"What do you mean hurt you?" she demanded.
"When we finish all our chores on time, uncle Vernon canes us. if we don't do everything perfectly aunt petunia whips us. if we brake something on accident they lock us in the cupboard under the stairs with no food or water for days, weeks even. Please don't make me go back there, please miss," I was in tears trying to convince her that it wasn't safe for us there.
"Come with me, I have something to tell you, Ms. Potter," she said before leading me to a deserted park bench.
"How did you know my name?" I asked.
"I knew your parents. Now listen closely, I need you to believe everything I tell you okay?"
"Yes miss," I told her nodding my head.
"My name is Minerva McGonagall, I am a professor at Hogwarts, school of witchcraft and wizardry. You and I, and many others are witches, your brother is a wizard…"
----------------------- As you've proberly guessed this is a one-shot out of Lillith's life to give the story more information, and to make her events real. I'll be updating 6 chapters like these so whenever the chapter's called one-shot It'll not follow the original storyline. Thankyou for reading!
