CHAPTER 1- THE GIRL WHO LIVED
It was a dark, cloudless night.
It was 1st of November and it was almost midnight, everyone was indoors, fast asleep.
The only living thing in sight was a tabby cat that was looking down the road with big yellow eyes, seemingly waiting for someone.
Then a woman appeared out of nowhere.
And a very strange looking woman she was. She had silver waist length hair. He had a long crooked nose and bright blue eyes, which were hidden behind golden half-moon spectacles. She was wearing a big red pointed hat and a long red robe to match. She looked most peculiar.
This woman's name was Professor Alyssa Dumbledore and rather you choose to believe it or not she was a witch.
Alyssa Dumbledore took out a strange silver instrument that looked like a cigarette lighter and opened it.
The light came from the street light next to her and she moved to the next one and the next one until the street was completely dark.
If someone looked out their window they would not be able to see anything.
The tabby cat mewed. Alyssa Dumbledore spun around, saw the cat and laughed. "I should have known you would be here Professor McGonagall!" she said.
The cat walked towards her and changed into a stern looking man with neatly combed black hair, named Michael McGonagall.
"How did you know it was me?" he asked.
"My dear Professor" said Dumbledore clearly amused, "I have never seen a cat sit so stiffly. And considering how old I am I think that is saying something don't you?"
Michael McGonagall scowled, clearly not amused. There was obviously something on his mind.
"Are the rumours true Alyssa?" he asked. "Everyone is saying that last night...that You-Know-Who...I mean Voldemort, they're saying that she attacked the Potters and that...that Liam and Jade Potter are, well everyone is saying that they're dead!"
Dumbledore sighed sadly and nodded her head.
McGonagall collapsed onto the wall behind him in shock, holding a hand to his chest as though trying to make sure he didn't have a heart attack. Tears were silently streaming down his cheeks.
"Liam and Jade" he said quietly. "I didn't want to believe it...oh Merlin Alyssa."
Dumbledore sighed again and patted him on the shoulder. "I know" she said. "I know."
"That's not all they're saying" said McGonagall. "They're saying that Voldemort tried to kill their daughter Holly, but she couldn't. They're saying that when she tried her powers just broke or something and that's why she's gone!"
"Well then, they are correct" said Dumbledore.
"Y-you're joking!" said McGonagall in astonishment. "That's what defeated her? After all the people she's murdered Voldemort couldn't kill a little girl? Amazing! Absolutely extraordinary!" Then a thought seem to strike him- "But where will Holly live? And why are you here anyway? I'm only here because Ruby said you'd be!"
"I've come to take Holly to her aunt and uncle" said Dumbledore. "It is the best place for her."
McGonagall stared at her as though she'd lost her mind and jumped off the wall with surprising speed.
"You can't mean the people who live here!" he said in horror as he pointed at Number Four. "I've been watching them all day! They're the worst sort of Muggles imaginable!"
"Why were you watching them all day if you didn't know why I would be here?" Dumbledore asked seeming quite amused.
"I had my suspicions as to why you would be here" McGonagall admitted but then glared at Dumbledore. "Why can't some wizarding family take her in? The child will be famous! Everyone in our world will know her name! I wouldn't be surprised if they renamed today 'Holly Potter Day'!"
"Exactly" said Dumbledore "Don't you think it would be better for her to grow up away from all that until she is ready?"
"I suppose" said McGonagall sighing. "How is she getting here?"
"Hagrid is bringing her" said Dumbledore.
"Hagrid?" said McGonagall gaping at her again. "As in Ruby Hagrid? Do you really think that is wise Alyssa?"
"Michael I would trust Ruby with my life" said Alyssa sincerely.
Before either of them could say anything more there was the roar of an engine and a huge motorbike dropped out of the sky.
If the motorbike was huge it was nothing compared to the woman riding it! She was twice the size of the average person and had a mane of bushy black hair and black beetle eyes. She looked positively wild but her eyes were very kind.
She smiled at Dumbledore and McGonagall.
"Evenin' Professors" she said as she climbed off the motorbike. She was holding a small pink bundle in her arms.
"Hagrid at last" said Dumbledore sounding relieved. "Where on earth did you get that motorcycle?"
"Young Serena Black lent it to me" said Hagrid. "She was already at the house when I got there. Poor thing was shaking like a leaf!"
"There were no problems?"
"Nah, Serena wanted to take Holly but I got her to listen eventually. Holly fell asleep as we was flying over Bristol." Hagrid handed the small pink bundle to Dumbledore. "Try not to wake her."
Dumbledore and McGonagall peered down at the pink bundle.
Inside the pink blanket, was a baby girl fast asleep. Under a clump of her jet black hair they could clearly see a cut on her forehead shaped like lighting.
McGonagall spoke first. "Is that where...?" he trailed off as he gestured to the cut on Holly's forehead.
"Yes" said Dumbledore. "She will have that scar forever."
"Can't you do anything about it?" McGonagall asked.
"Even if I could I wouldn't" said Dumbledore. "Scars can come in very handy. I have one above my left shin that is a perfect map of the London Underground."
McGonagall grimaced slightly. "Alyssa I really didn't need to know that" he said dryly.
Alyssa simply smiled at him and walked over to the front step of Number Four Privet Drive and placed Holly upon it. She took a letter from inside her robes and placed it inside Holly's blanket. Then she walked back to McGonagall and Hagrid.
Hagrid was crying, her face buried in a table cloth sized napkin. McGonagall was patting her awkwardly on the arm, he obviously had no clue how to calm her down.
"Yes, yes Hagrid it's all very sad" he was saying. "But do calm down or the Muggles will spot us!"
"There, there Hagrid" said Dumbledore patting her on the arm. "It's not really goodbye after all!"
Hagrid nodded gulping, wiped her nose one last time and put the napkin away in one of the coats on her huge jacket.
"Well" she said in a choked voice. "I had best get this bike back to Serena. G'night Professor Dumbledore miss, Professor McGonagall sir." She nodded at them, walked back to the bike, started the engine and disappeared into the night sky.
"I should go" said McGonagall. "No use hanging around here now." He turned back into a tabby cat, turned away from Dumbledore and walked down the road and out of sight.
Alyssa Dumbledore looked back at Holly as she pulled out the Putter-Outer and all the street lights went back on.
"Good luck dear girl" she whispered and with a swish of her cloak she was gone.
Holly Potter slept on, in her pink blanket, not knowing that her life had been changed forever.
She did not know that she would be awoken in the morning by her uncle's yells when he put the milk bottles out.
She did not know that she would spend the next few months being prodded and pinched by her cousin Daphne Dursley.
She did not know, that at that very moment people were meeting in secret everywhere in the country, raising their glasses and saying in hushed voices; "To Holly Potter- The Girl Who Lived!"
