You do not need to have read it, but this story may contain spoilers for it.

Have you ever wondered why Petunia hates magic so much? Why she hates Harry? Or why she married a man like Vernon Dursley? This story aims to answer the above questions. I meant to write a full lenght story, but it wasn't working out, so instead I wrote this as a Writer's Duel entry. It didn't do very well, but I'm posting it anyway!!!! By the way "mild sexual references" simply refers to a very vague comment.
