July 30th was a cool summer night. Most people were safe at home with there families tucking into a later supper or putting their kids to bed. But in the outskirts of London things were very different for one young man. You see this young man had been abandoned by those he calls family.
The day had started out as normal as ever, but by the time his Uncle had gotten home things were very different. As it turned out his uncle had been fired and on his way home had stopped at the local pub for a few too many drinks. The first thing he had done when he walked in the font door was storm his way up to his nephews room and start throwing all his belonging onto the front lawn. When the room had been emptied of everything but the young man and a few odd bits of furniture, he dragged the young man down the stairs and out the front door. Grinning like he had just won the lottery he set fire to the pile. The young man was devastated because among the items in the fire there was the photo album of his parents, his invisible cloak, many other trinkets he had collected from the important people in his life, but the worse thing of all that was in the fire was this young mans wand. Without it he was as good as a muggle. Once the fire died down the young mans uncle having not let go of him pulled him into the car and drove away. Despite the young mans protests his uncle kept driving until they were in the slums of London. Parking on a random street corner he threw his nephew out of the car and speed away again, hoping to never see the young man again.
Now this young man was feeling so heart broken he didn't seem to care that he was surrounded by old, abandoned factories. Since his wand was destroyed he had no way of contacting any of his friends. He had no way of protecting himself and no way of finding out where he was. Deciding that standing here wasn't going to help the situation and it was to dark to start walking hopefully into London, he started looking for some shelter for the night. Finding some in an old building that still had most of its roof still intact he settled in for the night, having no idea that tomorrow his life would change for one last time. Tomorrow he was going to meet the man that would change everything for him. Give him a home, a job, a future.
