Ruby potter (book 1)

Dedicated to

The house, on a rock island somewhere out at sea the horrid family was sleeping, while Harry and I were on the cold, dirt floor. We draw a birthday cake which reads, Happy Birthday. I look at Dudley's watch, which beeps 12:00. Harry and I smile at each other “Make a wish.” We said before we blew on the drawing.

Suddenly, the door thumps, Harry jumps up and grabs my hand. The door thumps again and Dudley and Harry jump up and back away pulling me with them. Petunia and Vernon appear, Vernon with a gun. The door bangs again and then cracks open, and a giant man appears. “Who's there? I know kung fu!!!” I yell at the tall man. The man looks at the door “Sorry 'bout that.” He puts the door back up Uncle Vernon put the gun up more “I demand that you leave at once, Sir! You are breaking and entering!” The man comes over, grabs the gun and bends it upwards. “Dry up, Dursley, you great prune.” The gun fires into the roof. I clap but Harry pushes my hands down. The man looks at Dudley “Mind, I haven't seen you since you was a baby, Harry, but you're a bit more along than I would have expected. Particularly 'round the middle!” Dudley starts to stutter. “I-I-I'm not Harry.”

Harry appears in front of me trying to keep me in the shadows “I-I am.” The man looks at him “Oh, well, of course you are! Got something for ya. 'Fraid I might have sat on it at some point! I imagine that it'll taste fine just the same. Ahh. Baked it myself. Words and all. Heh.” Harry looks apprehensive but says “Thank you!” and opens the cake “It's not every day that your young man turns eleven, now is it? Now where is your sister?” I come out of the shadows “Um here?” The man smiles and says “What were you doing hiding? That cake is for you too so dig in!” The man sat down on the couch, took out an umbrella and pointed it at the empty fire. Poof, poof! Two sparks fly out and the fire starts. My eyes widened. Harry put the cake down and asked “Excuse me, who are you?” The man replied “Rubeus Hagrid. Keeper of keys and grounds at Hogwarts. Course, you two know all about Hogwarts.” Harry and I shook our heads “Sorry, no.” Hagrid looked up “No? Blimey, You two, didn't you ever wonder where your mum and dad learned it all?” I tilted my head “Learnt what?”

Hagrid smiled at us You two are a witch and a wizard.” Harry shakes his head “We’re a what?” Hagrid replies “A witch and a wizard. And a thumping good ones at that, I'd wager. Once you two train up a little.” I shook my head “No, you've made a mistake. I can't be...a-a witch. I mean, I'm just... Ruby. Just Ruby.” Hagrid looked at me  “Well, Just Ruby, did you ever make anything happen? Anything you couldn't explain when you were angry or scared?” Harry and I looked at each other with our eyes wide. Hagrid hands Harry and I the same letter that has been sent the past while Harry opens it. “Dear, Mr. and Ms. Potter. We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts' School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!”

Uncle Vernon’s face was red “They will not be going! We swore when we took them in we would put an end to this rubbish!” I glared at him “You knew?? You knew all along and you never told us?”

Petunia held her beak oops I mean head up high “Of course we knew. How could you not be? My perfect sister being who she was. Oh, 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 you two, and I knew you'd be just 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.” Harry glared at her “Blown up? You told us our parents died in a car crash!” Hagrid stood up “A car crash? A car crash kill James and Lily Potter?” Petunia looks at him “We had to tell them something.” Hagrid kept going“It's an outrage! It's a scandal!” Vernon got his courage back up “They will not be going!” Hagrid smirked “Oh, and I suppose a great Muggle like yourself's going to stop them, are you?” I looked at him “Muggle?”

Hagrid looked at me “Non magic folk. These two have had they’re name down ever since they were born! They are going to the finest school of witchcraft and wizardry in the world, and will be under the greatest headmaster Hogwarts' has ever seen Albus Dumbledore.” Harry and I smiled. Vernon looked mad as ever “I will not pay for some crackpot old fool to teach him magic tricks!” Hagrid whipped out umbrella and points it at Vernon “Never insult Albus Dumbledore in front of me.” Hagrid sees Dudley eating Harry's cake, and points the umbrella at his rear and a pig tail grows, Petunia screams. The family chases Dudley, “Badass!” I whispered under my breath. Harry laughs, oh I guess he heard me. Hagrid clears his throat “Oh, um, I'd appreciate if you didn't tell anyone at Hogwarts about that. Strictly speaking, I'm not allowed to do magic.” Harry and I nod our heads “Okay.” Hagrid checks a poket watch “Ooh, we're a bit behind schedule. Best be off. Unless you’d rather stay, of course. Hmm?” Harry grins, looks at me, and grins again.
