I sat in a compartment with Hermione and Ron along with his little sister Ginny on the way back from school sadly I happened to be going to the Dursley. I really did not listen to what was being said I turned when my arm was pulled on, it was Hermione "Are you paying attention to what I just told you?" she asked
"Sorry I was thinking, what did you say?" I asked as she rolled her eyes.
"You should listening when someone is talking to you. I'm telling you that even though we know Mr. Black is innocent. They would not have let you live with him, I mean he spent years around Dementors and plus you have to stay at the Dursley because of the wards the headmaster would have made you stay there he makes you go back every year. What would it matter if Mr. Black got cleared? You would have to back and charge those wards to keep your family safe it is your home right? And you need it just the same it keeps you safe. I mean if it was not for me you most likely would have ended up killing yourself." she stopped, having run out of breath.
I blink at what she just said. How did she know about the wards, I never told anyone about them? I said nothing but opened another chocolate frog only the to have it taken out of my hands.
"You will rot your teeth, I think you have had enough candy" Hermione said as she tossed the frog out the window. "Here's the card I know you collect them." she told as she handed it back to me.
It was Artemisia Lufkin who was the first witch Minster of Magic, I bet she would have listened to us when we told her what we saw unlike that useless Fudge we had as a Minister now.
That's when it hit me, Dumbledore could have done something too, as he is Chief Warlock, but what Hermione said was true he would make me go back. That's it he wanted me there, I was grateful to who ever got me out in the summer and they always did so after getting the okay from him. I stood and shoved the card into my pocket and made my way over to the door.
"And where do you think your going?" Hermione demanded.
"To the loo, want to come and hold it for me, as you seem to think I need to hold your hand for every little thing?" I snapped back at her. "You do not need to be rude Harry." she huffed I said nothing but walked out of the door. I would take my time and think, as I had a lot to think about.
Before I noticed close to an hour had passed. I should go back and sit and listen to them talk if they ask I'll just tell them Trevor got away from Neville and he asked for help finding him. Just as I stood to leave the compartment I had hide in the very three people stopped outside the door for a second I thought they might come in. For some unknown reason I ducked down under the window so they could not see me. I could hear what they where saying,
"Was he in the loo Ron?" Hermione asked
"No and none of the upper years have seen him, I even asked Percy" Ron said I knew that was a lie I had run into Percy just down that corridor. That only made me question why Percy would lie for me and to his brother no less.
"We best find him, the headmaster said to watch him he just might run off and join Black and we all know that goes against what is best for him. Did you look in the front of the train?" Hermione asked
"No, why would he be there it is mostly Slytherin's." Ginny said
Hermione huffed "More the reason he would be there." she told them. "Let's go look we best all go and don't say we lost him. I don't word getting back to the headmaster." She told them, I listened as they left before looking out the window to make sure they where gone. I quickly returned to the compartment I had been sharing with the pair to do just as Hermione said. I was going to find Sirius and stay with him, only the compartment was not empty
A girl with blond hair and light blue eyes was sitting there reading a magazine upside down while Percy read a textbook. "Hello, don't mind me I am just going to get my things and be off." I said "The Webemagi's will just lead them to you." the girl said
I blinked "What does that mean and what is a Webemagi?" I asked
"Did you here are charms to track people." Percy said
"Can you tell if there are some on my belongings?" I askedHe nodded that he could and there where many, five alone on poor Hedwig and seven more on items in my trunk. "Can you remove them?" I asked
"Not all of them, I can place them on something else if you like it will be easier than removing them. If you going you need to dress in something else something less noticeable, you school uniform will stand out too much and those muggle clothes even more so." Percy said as he went about moving the tracking charms.
"I have nothing else." I told him
"You could borrow a dress of mine they will be looking for a boy and I know a spell or two the grow hair and dye it." The girl said she was smaller than me while I did not think what she wore would fit me. I was more Hermione's' size, oh and look her trunk was right there.
It did not take me long to find something to where Luna even went out while I changed. Percy in the mean time had placed all the trackers onto chocolate frogs and rewrapped them minus the cards those he placed in my trunk before shrinking it and repacking Hermione's trunk he shrunk the other trunks and handed them to me.
"The first stop I would make would be to talk to my account manger." He advised, handing them over. I pocketed all the trunks save fore Luna's as he let Luna know she could come back in, I gave Luna her trunk when she came back in to fix my hair.
Before she started I wrote a quick letter to Gringotts telling them I would be stopping by and I need to speak to them about my accounts. I let her out and before I could close the window a small brown owl flew in. I read the letter, it was from Sirius saying this was to replace Ron's rat. Percy snorted as he was made to give him that rat.
He told me to keep it as it would seem odd to have an owl cage and no owl. It took some doing but we got the little owl into the cage. Luna sat to work on my hair as Percy left to make one last round. Luna had just added the last red highlight when the door opened. Hermione, Ron and Ginny where standing there giving us odd looks
"Why are you in our compartment?" Hermione asked
"We got kicked out of ours by a couple who wanted to snogg and as this one was empty, we thought no one was using it." Luna said
"Our trunks are on the racks" Ginny said
"There are no trunks on the racks look for yourself." Luna said
"Be quiet Loony, no one asked you." Ron said. I could tell this hurt her so I pulled her into a one armed hug.
"What happened to our trunks?" Hermione asked the only thing that sat in the rack was my owl cage. Luna said nothing so Hermione turned to me. I looked at her and pulled a piece of parchment that I had left out after sending Hedwig off and wrote I did not know and I could not speak due to the fact I had laryngitis.
"They make pepper up potion you know." Hermione said I glared at her and she stepped back. I wrote out that I knew that and I had an allergy to an ingredient in it and could not take it and she needed to mind her own business.
"Well someone took our trunks you had to have seen them" Ron said I wrote out that we had only been here for a short while and the only person we had seen was the Head boy on his rounds. So if someone took them it would be best to go tell him or a perfect. He rolled his eyes before leaving. Ginny made to sit down but Hermione pulled her out saying they needed to find Harry still and report their missing belongings. It was an hour later when we pulled into the station.
"There's my daddy I will see if he can take us to the Alley." Luna said running off to an oddly dressed man. I followed her slowly to give her time with her father as I made my way over I spotted Mr. and Mrs. Weasley talking to their children, they seemed to tell them something that had Mrs. Weasley rush over to the floo and to make a call as she only kneeled down. I knew she was flooing the school it was mostly likely about two things one I was gone and another their trunks where gone. I notice Percy giving frogs to Ron who quickly ate one and loudly complained there was no card.
Mr. Lovegood spoke up "Let's go, I was just going to apparate to the house we can take the Knight bus to the Alley first I have some shopping to do before our trip." Luna's dad said I followed them off the platform and out of the station passing Uncle Vernon on the way, I heard him say he would be teaching me who's the boss the summer and what happens to no good freaks that harm his sister.
"Mr. Lovegood could you wait a second, I need to do something and I really need to use the loo this time." I said
"Yes dear my little dandelion and I will wait here." He said
"Oh Daddy I best go too, you always say to use the loo before car trips." Luna said I had come to know in a short time that Luna was odd but a good kind of odd and it seems her father was just the same. I let Luna pull me off and before I could protest she pulled me into the girls' loo. "So what are you going to do?" She asked stepping into a stall I stepped into the one left of the stall she was using , "Remember to put the paper thingy on the seat before you sit down" she called. I was trying to decide out how to stand and pee while in this skirt. In her own way Luna reminded me I was dressed as a girl and they sat to pee.
"If I have someone to play me, I would not be miss so soon and if I got an owl asking about why I never waited on them I could say tell them by the time I returned to the compartment they where not there and I wait till we reached the station and never saw them on the platform and I could not make my uncle wait. The only one that might help is Dobby"
"The great Harry Potter be calling Dobby" was said by the elf that popped into the stall with me I yelped in surprise.
"I did not mean to and could you turn around while I finish." I said he looked sad at what I told him, "Stay here I have something to ask you." I said, Dobby nodded and did as I asked him. I was glad only Luna and I were in the restroom. I quickly told Dobby my plan and Luna added parts too, like making it look like they had done something to the body when the time frame we gave him was finished.
"Dobby do if the great Harry Potter be my master." Dobby said I agreed and told him he was to never punish himself with out telling me what he did that needed punishing and I would decide the punishment. He jumped in place before popping out, we quickly left the loo and saw Uncle Vernon drag Harry Potter off. It was odd to watch yourself get dragged off. I spotted who I was looking for.
"Sir" I said walking up to the bobby with Luna following me.
"What can I do for you to young lady? Not lost are you?" he asked
"No sir my father is waiting for us over there." Luna said pointing to her dad.
"We where going to the loo when we passed an man you said he was going to teach someone he called a freak an lesson and we just saw him dragging a young boy out of here by his arm it looked like he might hurt him." I told the man
" Mother always told us if we saw an adult hurting a kid or one tried to hurt us to get help." said Luna I nodded in agreemant.
"Thank you, now you two best run along to your father now, I will look into this." He told us. We did as he told us and made or way back to Mr. Lovegood.
"We are ready Daddy, now remember we have to go to an Alley way first." Luna said the ride to Diagon Alley did not take long and the knight bus was still the same crazy ride I took at the start of summer.
"Lets go take care of your friends business at the bank then we can do some shopping for the trip." Mr. Lovegood said, I was not to sure about have him help he like he seemed to want to no adult has done so in my lifetime.
"How may I help you today?" asked the Goblin who was working in the window we had walked to.
"I need to see my account manger, but I am not to sure who that is." I said the goblin looked at me then to Luna and her dad.
"If they are not family then they must wait here and I need your key." the Goblin said I handed my key over and the goblin grinned at me
"Ironheart take this young one to this office and be quick about it." he told another goblin as he wrote something on a piece of parchment. I followed the goblin named Ironheart, he was shorter than most of the goblins I had meet in the back but he was the fastest one so far. I almost ran into his back when he stopped, he said nothing but knocked on a door with a name plate that said Ragnok and something else in what I assumed was gobbledygook. Whoever I had been taken to call to enter Ironheart only held the door open for me. I stepped around him and he shoved the paper into my hands.
"Thank you for leading me to this office and holding the door." I told him as I walked past, Ironheart only nodded at me.
"What can I do for you today human child?" Asked the goblin sitting behind the desk the looked to be made out of oak.
"I asked to see my account manager the goblin called Ironheart and gave him this and said the bring me to your office." I said placing the note on in his hand. He waved me to a chair in front of the desk. It was very comfy,
"I see Mr. Potter will you tell me why you have not answered any owls we have sent you?" The goblin asked
"I did not know you where trying to owl me. I seem to only get owls from friends or Hogwarts. What did you want to talk about?" I asked
The Goblin opened a desk drawer and pulled out a rolled up parchment.
"Lord Arcturus Black passed away in 1991, and as he had disowned his daughter for marrying against his wishes the family money was left to his son. His son passed away in the year 1979 a few short months after his youngest son's murder. His will left every thing to his oldest son and a trust set aside for his wife to live the remainder of her days in a small cabin out in York. She did not take this so well as she must have assumed she would hold the Black fortune but as I said the Lord of the House was still alive when her husband passed away could only take what she was left by her husband, she passed away in 1985, she left no will so her belongings and what little money left in the trust returned to the main vaults." He pulsed to take a breath.
"Now many thought she was the head of the family, mostly the Malfoy family who thought they could claim the vaults after her passing. But that did not come to pass even when they tried once more in 1991 when the Lord of Black family passed away. His will was every clear on who got what and why. Lord Black left every thing to you along with this letter." The goblin said handing me the scroll.
"Do you know why he would do that?" I asked
"I think he knew you and his grandson would need this someday felt this was the only way he could help." The goblin told me, before I could ask who his grandson was, he stood up from behind his desk and waved for me to follow.
"Come there is much we must do to make sure that will is followed. You need to have our healers look at you and your friends must go home and return at a later date. As it is close to the audit dates the Potter vaults are long over due for one." The goblin said
I was a little to shock to do much more than follow him out of his office and deeper into the underground. Soon I was shuffled into a bed and handed a note along with the owl from Sirius. The note was from Luna telling me to owl her and she along with her father would return for me at a later date and that I could come along on their summer trip if I wanted to. I asked for some paper along with something to write with and wrote a note off to Sirius telling him what I had over heard and what had happened in the bank. I was about to send it off when I realized I did not know if the little owl could make it out.
"Excuse me." I said to the Goblin who looked to be getting ready to look me over said nothing but looked at me as if to say yes. "I need to send an owl, the person I am sending it to will want to come here, but I am not to sure if I can send an owl out." I said
"I can send it out and have it made into a key if you like, it will only cost one gallon. I am called Oozetongue we shall get to know each other well in your stay." Oozetongue said, I just nodded and handed over the note. It was handed off to another goblin who was told something in what I now sure to be gobbledygook. "These test go easier and fast if you are asleep" Oozetongue said holding out a flask. I drank it with out question, it might have been really dumb of me, but if not for being here I would have been at the Dursley's. I worried for Dobby but knew he could take care of himself. I was more worried about Sirius, it was clear to me now the Headmaster did not want him free any more than he wanted me free was my last thought as I dozed off.
Oozetongue point of view:Leader Ragnok had done some odd things in his time as leader but money was made with very little lost the elders where happy. So when he led a human child to me for treatment did not surprise me, the surprise was just who that human child was.
Said child was The 'boy who lived', this basic scan showed many things. One of those being how malnourished he was, for a young one to be treated as this one clearly was evil. The treatment needed would be painful and nothing could be taken for it, if the young one was asleep it would help. I turned when the child called me, he asked if he could send an owl off and told me the person it was for would want to come. I told him how much we charged for a secure mail key and told my assistant to send the letter off. I told the child treatment would be easier if he was asleep. I was shocked when he agreed, most adults under my care did not agree to what said. I gave the boy a potion that would make him sleep for at least a day. I started an in depth scan, and was angered at what came of it. This child was not only malnourished but his body showed signs of past wounds that could only have come from adults. Bones that have been broken and not healed correctly, the boys own magic must have healed him the best way possible. Potions would fix his growth problems, I would have to vanish and mend most of his bones.
"Healer Oozetongue I want you to document every injury this child has." Ragnok said as he returned to the healing room.
"Just make sure the ones who have harmed this child are punished till they have no gold." I said, he said nothing as he left, but I could tell he was unhappy about this. "By The Great Maker, what has this child been put though." I said
"Healer Oozetongue, what is the matter?" my assistant asked
"Look at this blood work and tell me I am seeing the truth." I said. My assistant did as I asked then pulled her own blood to test.
"By The Great Maker" she said before fainting away. I knew she saw the same as I had, at some point in this boy's life he hand been bitten by the great snake and lived. I would have to ask when the child when he awoke. The scan of his magic core was the last test I ran, I was not shocked to see a block on his core but as it was a block placed on children when they reach the age of one to prevent them from harming themselves. It did not take long to remove it and by the time the block was gone my scan of his past injuries.
"Nambile go and get Leader Ragnok" I said to my other assistant after she had placed her co-worker onto one of the beds, she wasted no time by asking what I need from the lead, she just rushed to fetch him. They returned shortly there after.
"What is it Healer Oozetongue?" Ragnok asked I just handed the paper with the finding over to him. "This is troubling, I will call for a team to come and remove that tamashii-dampen from his scar. That mad man must have made more than one to have one be of this size. If he has gone this far than I can say he is still out there waiting to return." Ragnok said just as a man was lead into the room by guards I placed myself in front of the child. I knew who that man was and would not let him harm the boy. One guards handed over a letter to Ragnok who read it over than smiled.
"Healer Oozetongue please look over this man and record his wounds and what treatment he needs to be given. I must return to my audits and someone please get a hold of the clan in America." Ragnok said. I was some what shock at what I had been told to do till I saw the man's eyes he did not care to much for himself but held the worry a parent would over their child.
"He will be fine when he wakes you should get some sleep it will make healing you faster and less painful." I told him as I went to get another sleeping potion. He said nothing when I handed him the potion, I watched as the man the papers were reporting to be mad and a killer, fall asleep looking at a child he cared for. Mr. Black was in just about the same shape as his godson only with less broken bones. I had just finished my examination of him when the team came in to remove tamashii-dampen from the child's scar.
"Healer Oozetongue, why is there a wanted man in this room?" asked one of the men.
"Ragnok said to heal him and I shall do as told. That child bring many questions to mind some I will ask when he awakes those seem best left alone. Your team was call to remove a tamashii-dampen please do so. Who knows what is has done to that poor child." I said He nodded before joining his team, it was well past the mid-night hour before they finished. Ragnok had returned at some point and was waiting just in side the doorway.
"Before you destroy that foul thing do the setsuritsu suru, I want to know where the over tamashii-dampen are and send teams out to destroy them." Ragnok said. The leader of the team just nodded, doing so would coast the clans money but to let that monster return to power would coast us our way of life. I took the first watch over our quests. They awoke the following afternoon after an eventful morning, a tamashii-dampen had been found in one of our vaults. Teams were being put together to gather the rest, the audit of the vaults would be finished by tonight. _
Dobby had been a good elf all his life always doing as his aster told him. Dobby remembered when he had been but a small elf child and his mother belonged to the great Potter family. Even though they had to sell Dobby, they made sure it was to kind family and it was till the young master got married. The new mistresses was not so kind and had been cast out of her family. She punished us for not doing every thing just right and gave Dobby away to the awful Malfoy family they are the meanest to elves. It was the first time little master returned for the summer time after his first year of schooling. He talked about how the great Harry Potter did something to steal the cup from his house and how the headmaster must favor him, as he never got in trouble for breaking the rules.
Master said he would take care of it, it made Dobby worry. Dobby had been born a Potter elf and his mother had died a Potter elf. So when I heard master talking about a plain to kill Harry Potter I knew what I must do. None of my plan had worked but in the end the great Harry Potter had stopped the evil and freed Dobby. I watched over the great Harry Potter till he was at his house before popping out to find other Potter elves.
Their young master be needing them. I could find none but I did clean house where I looked, I was just cleaning the house where the great Harry Potter became great when he called me. I wasted no time in going to him maybe I could be a potter elf once more. The Great Harry Potter yelped when I popped in front of him before asking be to turn around. He told me of his plan his friend Miss Luna added some parts too. I told him I would do so if I could be a potter elf. I wanted to hug him when he agreed but elves do not hug their masters. The great Harry Potter when told me to never punish myself and if I felt I did wrong to come to him and he would decide my punishment or if one was needed at all. I did as told, I would make these muggles pay. I had watched how they treated my master last summer after I have gotten him in trouble. I had seen in their minds how they felt when I looked for elves at that house as it was so clean. It had to be by elf hand to be that clean. But is was master magic the kept it clean, they had treat him the old mistress had before giving me away. Dobby would do as told and get them punished for how they treated master and how he was treated before he became master.
"There you are boy." was said before Dobby was pulled off, I watched as Master and Miss Luna came from the loo. "What have you done with you freak belongings?" asked the large muggle.
"I left them with a friend." I said
"Another freak no doubt, but to bad I planned on using them to teach you a lesson this summer after what you did to my sister." he said before shoving me in the back of a muggle machine. Dobby listened as this muggle man talk about showing the great Harry Potter a lesson. A lesson will be thought alright but it he will be the one learning it, before long we where back in those strange houses that seemed to look that same. I shuddered at the feeling they gave me, it was unnatural no home should look and feel the same. I was soon locked into the great Harry Potter's old room. I was told to start the plan in two days time, Dobby was good at waiting., Dobby had been waiting all of his life to return to his family and now that he was back he would let nothing harm it
Sgt Mark Stebbins point of view:
Today was considered to be one of the odd ball days of the year. The first of September, December 23, January 5 and June 20 where days extra portals where add as people in all manner of dress came out. One year I even saw a man in a purple poke-a-dotted dress walking around.
"Sir" was said from behind me, I turned to fact two little girls. One was dressed in a long shirt with a turtle neck shirt while the other was dressed in a dressed that could only be described as a melted rainbow. I hoped they where not lost as the odd people had started showing up. When I asked them that the one in the rainbow dress said her father was over there.
I looked at a man who was dressed strangely but not every one could wear a kilt and get away with it he was one of those people. They told be of how the over heard a man saying he would teach a freak a lesson than dragged a young boy roughly out of here. I told them I would look into it and watched them make there way back to the one girls father.
"This is Mark checking in, just had an odd report I need some one at the station to pull up the cctv cameras and look for a man pulling a young boy off and follow there he is taken." I said
"Mark is this a kidnapping?" came over the radio
"I don't know at this point, some girls reported a man saying he would teach a freak a lesson then said they saw him pulling a young boy off. Just want to make sure nothing too odd happens today of all days." I said into the radio as I made my way out front.
"Those girls where right, I followed him and the boy out till he was shoved into a car running the numbers now." dispatch told me, I did not see anything out of sorts. "The car is registered to Grunnings Drill Firm on loan to a one Vernon Dursley. Pulling up info on his family, has a stay at home wife Petunia Dursley nee Evens, a son, get this named Dudley Dursley who attends Smeltings a sister Marge Dursley who breeds English bull dogs and last but not least it say he has a nephew named Harry Potter that attends HSWW advancement school." dispatch told me.
"You say Potter and he goes to HSWW" I asked breaking dispatch off
"Yea Mark a one Harry James Potter started at HWSS in 1991. Why do you ask?" Dispatch asked
"I worked with a Potter once in special force, he went under ground in the 80's after he found something thing out that made him and his family a target of that terrorist group back then the skull and snake group. Last I heard the lead of the group found him and his family, from the report James was killed first but he or his wife must have got the killer as their son lived." I said
"Why do you say that?" was asked
"Because this group killed everyone when they attacked. I have seen a baby who was less the a year old killed by these guys. The attacks all stopped in 1981 no one knows why and it worries the big bosses that group is out there waiting to return." I said
"I'll video I-queue the family, think we should send a car out?" Dispatch asked
"I think we should ask around first something does not seem right about all this." I said as a family walked past me. The little girl was getting a lecture about leaving her belonging unattended on a train. It seemed that they where taken on the train ride back from her school, I was about to step over and ask if they would like to report it but the girl yelled that a school's friends mother had already reported it as her children's belonging had been taken too. The girl was quickly told not to talk to her father in that tone.
Even though my shift was over, I was looking into this Dursley family. My gut told me something was wrong. Plus I wanted to know if the kid was related to the James Potter I knew, I owed him my life.
"Knew I would find you here Mark, still looking in to what happened today." was said from behind me.
"Yeah, Tad, something is not right. I am going to go out to the local office in the morning and have a talk and ask if I can take a look around myself." I told him
"You think is kid might be James' kid?" Tad asked
"Maybe but there are a lot of people named Potter out there." Tad said
"I know that but something is nagging at me and I hate when something is nagging at me. The kid looked just like James only younger, than there's that Black bloke who busted out of jail last summer. He looked a little ruff around the edges, but it was Sirius, they said he sold James and his family out. You know and I know that Sirius would never do that James was his brother in every way but blood." I said
"I know that, you know that but the uppers won't believe in your gut like we do." Tad said I sighed, before standing up; I best get home and rest. I knew there would be a lot happening in the next few days.
"Mark, give me a call in the morning if your gut says this kid is James' I want to have a talk with that Dursley bloke too." Tad said as he rubbed his arm where I knew a scar ran the length of his arm. James had prevent him from losing his arm if not his life, what ever he had done back then had been magic. I nodded that I would give him a call and walked out of the room.
The next morning I yawned as I waited for Tad to come out of his house, I did not sleep easy last night the look in that boy's eyes hunted my dreams. His eyes held nothing not even life, they just looked jaded emeralds.
"Ruff night?" Tad asked as he opened the door to my car. My answer was to yawn at him, it was less than a hours drive out to Little Whinging.
"So you want to go around asking some questions?" Said Robert Evens he was the head Bobby here.
"Yeah, a man named Vernon Dursley was over heard teaching a boy he called freak a lesson before he dragged a boy out of station." I said
"I can show you I got have a copy of the tapes." Tad said
"Show me what you got and it best be good." Robert said Tad showed him the tapes from yesterday, Roberts Evens sighed
"That's Vernon Dursley alright and the boy is Harry Potter he lives with them and has for some time. I can tell you what has been said about the boy has never been good. Most people on his street believe what they have been told but no kid can be that bad without getting nicked and I can tell you he has never been. My son had a run in with the Dursley's son last summer and lets just say he won't be bullying my boy anymore." Robert said
"So you have no proof they are mistreating the kid?" I asked
"None what so every but last year they had bars put on one window and one widow alone. Before I could look in to it they had been removed and the Potter boy was gone. I did not know he was back till you came asking permission to poke around. Do what you like but I want you to see if you can find out just who is bullying the children. They make sure to knew do any thing when an adult are not around. I have an idea who is behind it but unless the children say something our hands are tied. And without seeing who is doing it ourselves we can not stop it." Robert said.
"Think this will be like old time Mark?" Tad asked as we walked out. It took us three days to ask all the questions, most people on the block thought the Potter boy went to some school called St. Brutus' Secure Centre for Incurably Criminal Boys. It took another day to get permission from our boss to talk to the Dursley family. I wanted till Vernon had left for work that morning before I approached the house. It seemed I was not the only one.
"Morning sir, might I ask what your business is here?" I asked
"I am here on bank business, I work for the bank the Potter's holdings are held at. The account that looked after the bank has been charge with fraud we need to see the receipts of what has been spent on Mister Potter's up keep." The man said
"Oh, we might have to talk after this, the Dursley's are being looked into how they treat their nephew." I told him.
"Yes it seems we will have to talk." he said before he rang the bell. It did not take too long before a woman opened the door. I was about to wish her a good morning when she spoke.
"What has that boy done now?" she asked I wanted to glare at her, but I was on the job however the short man next to me did glare at her.
"While we are her about your nephew, it is not what he has done but what has been done to him." I said
"I do not know what lies that boy has been tell you but don't worry my husband will talk to him about how he treats his betters." she said.
"None the less I need to talk to him" I told her
"Well he is out doing who knows what, I am not sure when he will return." she said
"That is fine, I can wait plus this gentleman has something he wishes to talk to you about also." I said she glared at me but stepped aside letting us in to the house.
"Just what do you want?" she asked harshly
"I need all receipts from the items you bought for one Harry James Potters welfare." he said. She looked as if she had swallowed a lemon.
"My husband takes care of all that you will have to wait till he comes home." she said
"Then I will return, I have many things to talk to this nice man about things I had found out over the years. You do not mind if we use this room here" he said as he gathered his paperwork and snapped his case shut.
"Yes, lets it would be a waste of time to wait here while I have other things to look into like the children who are bullying and cause damage to the local park." I said as I was called over the radio.
"Dispatch, Mark here what is it you need?" I asked
"Just wanted to let you know we have nicked the kids that have been causing all the trouble in the Estate." Tad said over dispatch.
"That's good to hear, the Potter boy was not at home." I said It was a hour latter and, I could tell the woman wanted us out of her house.
"Gentlemen I have things I must do today so please leave?" she said
"I sure your plans can wait, in fact if you are in such a hurry you can call your husband home and go out and find the Potter boy." I said
"And leave you two here to poke around my home, I think not. I will call my husband home along with our lawyer." She said as the bell rang once more. I knew who it was before she went to answer it. We had been watching the house and knew for a fact young Mr. Potter had not left this house from the time he was returned. When I had told Tad the boy was not home he was to radio Robert and he was to go get a search warrant for this house. He along with a task force were to show up silent and lights out, just in case something was tried.
"Hello how might..." she must have stopped speaking when she saw just who was at her door.
"Step out side Mrs. Dursley we have a warrant to search your home." I could hear Robert saying from the front hall. In response Mrs. Dursley scream that this was all that freaks fault. Two of our lady Bobbies lead her out to a car and placed her in the back, by now some of the people in the other houses came out to see what was going on. Robert and his crew along with Tad came in so that we could search the house. I hoped nothing had been done to the boy while we gather the needed information to get the warrant.
"Sir, I need to ask you to wait outside." I said the gentleman
"That is fine but I must stay around if the boy needs hospitalization I can make the arrangements." He said as he walked out the door.
"Can I ask you what Mr. Potter father's name might be?" I asked
"James Charles Potter, he was killed 13 years ago on Halloween." he said before walking out the door.
"Why ask that?" Robert asked as some of his men went to work down stairs.
"Tad and myself use to work with a James Potter, he was in Special Forces, he found something out that made his family a target they went under ground but were sold out. I know James and his wife died but their son lived.. want to guess the kids name?" I asked
"I don't,.. oh bloody hell." he said taking me by surprise, till I saw what he did. A door the eight locks and a cat flap, I knocked on the door in hopes to get a response a soft hello came back to me. I wasted no time in opening the door and was shocked at what I saw. The people we locked away had it better than this.
"Mr. Potter lets get you out of here." I said as I made my way over to him. He flinched away as if I would hit him. "I am not going to hurt you, I am one of the good guys" I told him. He said nothing just sat there froze in place. I picked him up and slowly made my way outside with him. An EMT unit was waiting outside for me, more people had come over to see what happened as I handed the boy off. I wanted to go with him but had work to do here.
"Sgt. Mark was it. I will go with Mr. Potter as his family's newly appointed accountant it falls on me to arrange payment for his medical care." the short man said
"Yes, I just realized that I have yet to get your name." I said
"Ragnok, yes is strange but my sister has it worse than myself." he told me.I nodded and stepped aside so he could get in the back of the ambulance.
"Officer can I ask what is going on?" asked a woman
"Someone over heard a Vernon Dursley talking about teaching a freak a lesson than pull a young boy off none too nicely. We looked into to and found it to be true it was just a random check to make sure nothing had happened to the boy that lead to many questions." I said
"I am sure the boy did something after all he goes to a school for criminals and his father was a drunk and his mother a loose woman." she said the other woman nest to her nodded along with what she just told me.
"Then why do the boy's records show he attend HSWW for the advanced. If his father who I think he was I can tall you right now he was not drunk. I worked with a James Potter a couple of times before back when the skull and snake killings where happening. He was in Special Forces while his wife was in the research field trying to find out who was a part of the group till she had her kid. They both where killed saving him and named Knight and Lady for their deeds." I said before walking off. I did not feel like hearing what they had to say.
By the time I had return the team had made good work of finding out what was what. I was shocked when I heard Tad cursing he almost never cursed but when he did it was bad. When I saw what had him blue in the face I wish more than anything we could carry a sidearm. He was looking in the cupboard under the stairs for some reason I would have to ask why. But at some point it had been used as a bed room the cot mattress was still there along with the blood stains. It would be a long day filling out the paperwork.
I was surprised to see an officer of the law walking up to the same house I planned to visit today. The audit had clearly shown Mr. Potter's muggle relatives had been getting paid to look after him but I could tell now that none of the money was being spent on him. When I felt the elf in the up stairs part of the house I under stood what Mr. Potter meant when he said I might see him there. The officer told her why he was there and was told the Potter boy was not home. Of course not he was safe in the healing room of the bank. The officer told her he would wait till the boy returned and talked with someone over his radio about vandals and told who ever it was the Potter boy was not home and he was waiting. After telling her why I was her she told me that her husband took care of all that. I too said I would wait, it was almost an hour later when she came and told us she had things to do and asked us to leave.
The officer said if she want this done quicker to call her husband home and go out and find the boy. She refused to leave but said she would call her husband along with their lawyer. She left to do so only to be stopped by the front bell ringing, she never finisher her question of how she could help who ever was at the door. I saw soon asked to wait outside as a team of officer's searched the house. As I waited for something to happen I listened to the humans who had come to look at what was going on.
"Do you know what is going on?" a older man asked
"Not fully I came to get copies of the receipts for the things bought for Harry Potter from the stipend from his family's account." I said
"That drunk had an account?" I man asked in a surprised tone
"What drunk are you talking about?" I asked wanting to know what had been said about the Potters.
"The boy's family, Vernon told me his father was a drunk and I sure Petunia said his wife was a loose woman." he told me.
"I can tell you that is a lie, that boy's father was a member of the Queen's Special Forces while his wife was a part of the research team...Excuse me" I told him as officer Mark came out carrying what looked like Mr. Potter but felt like an elf. I moved to go with him, I would have to get them to go to one of our hospitals. It was not hard to talk my way into going as I would have to arrange payment for his medical care.
A small weave of magic made me able to talk with the elf without the humans noticing and made the driver head to one of our clinics.
"Elf why are you pretending to be Mr. Potter?" I asked
"He is my master, I doing as he and Miss Luna planned." the elf said, it seemed we would have to make changes to their plains. As I did not think Mr. Potter nor Miss. Lovegood plan had factored in the law or what our bank was going to do.
