Chappie 1 - Odd
It was odd. It was very odd.
For the first time ever, Aunt Petunia was actually being nice to Harry.
“Harry dear, you look hungry! Could I get you something? You look awfully skinny,” exclaimed Aunt Petunia
Harry thought to himself now you notice but he said, “You really think so?”
He said it out of politeness. He was amazed at Aunt Petunia and her spontaneous good mood. Actually it was not a good mood, it was more like a strange mood.
Aunt Petunia fixed up some waffles with chocolate chips, something Harry had never had before because his usual breakfast consisted of a grapefruit half.
“Thanks”, Harry said as Aunt Petunia set two large waffles in front of him.
Harry thought to himself that if Aunt Petunia was in this sort of a mood, maybe it would be a good time to ask her if he could go to Ron’s house for the remaining three weeks of the summer.
So Harry gathered his courage and said, “Aunt Petunia I was won-.”
He got cut off. Aunt Petunia had quickly butted in and said, “Oh Harry dear, please call me mum, just mum.”
Harry was shocked beyond belief. He was speechless. He quickly tried to figure things out in his head. Was he dreaming? No he thought to himself, the waffles were scrumptious and he could taste the melted chocolate swirling through his mouth. What was happening?
Ron sat in his room pondering what to say. He was writing a letter to Hermione. He wanted her to join Harry and himself for the remainder of the summer. He finally came up with what to say and his letter looked like this –
I hope you have been having a good summer. Mine has been bloody boring so far. I think it would be really nice if you could come to my house for the remainder of the summer. Harry is hopefully coming also.
I hope you can join us!
Harry was still shocked by Aunt Petunia’s peculiar behavior. Harry figured that in this good mood of hers she was almost sure to let him go to Ron’s for the remainder of the summer. So he quickly pulled out a piece of parchment and scribbled to Ron that he was most likely to come to his house. Harry tied the parchment to Hedwig’s foot and she was off.
Hermione received Ron’s letter. She was very excited to see Ron and Harry. After all, It had been almost two months since she had seen either of them. The following day, she packed up her things and went to Ron’s house.
As Hermione approached the door of The Burrow, she felt a new kind of a tingling sensation all throughout her body. She quickly ignored the silly sensation and knocked on the door.
“Hey Ron!!! I am so glad to see you! I have been aching for you all summer! I have missed you so much. It’s been so hard without you.” Hermione said, not aware what just come out of her mouth.
“I have missed you too.” Ron replied softly
“Come on in! Mum is excited to see you.” He quickly added.
“Has Harry arrived yet?” Hermione asked.
“Not yet, he should arrive soon though.” Ron replied.
*Authors note* Sorry for the boring first chappie, hopefully it will gain momentum!
