Harry arrived at Mr Entwhistle's office early the next day. As soon as they arrived the secretary told them to go right in. Adam was in his office with a look like a cat that caught the canary.
"What got you so happy, Adam?" Harry said.
"Are you sure this is a copy of the original will?" Adam asked.
"I am positive. They were there with me, nothing was changed. Why do you ask?" Harry said with conviction as he did not like being called a liar.
"This document could have major repercussion on the entire British Magical Society." Adam said. Seeing the confused look on the faces of his clients. Adam went on.
"You were never suppose to go to the Dursleys under any circumstances. Since Dumbledore was the witness of the will and executor of the will. He broke so many laws placing you in their care. Then taking the illegal magical custody over you so that he could use the Potter and Griffindor votes. Do you know what this means?" Adam said excitedly.
"Every decision that the Wizengamot had made in the last 14 years is invalid. Since Dumbeldore or his representative have illegally used your votes to affect a decision. Minister Fudge has no power since the election which he won was invalid. This is like dynamite to the ministry. I have organised a meeting with Amelia Bones, the head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement this afternoon. Don't worry she does not know anything. I had originally planned the meeting to sort out the underage magic usage mess and also the Sirius case but this will change everything."
Adam continued without giving time for Harry or the others to put in a word.
"Harry I need to see the memories of everything you told me yesterday like the abuse, the confrontation with Professor Quirrell, what happened in the chamber, the dementors, the incident at the graveyard, the confession of Peter Pettigrew and any other relevant you can think of."
"How do I show you the memories?" Harry asked. Adam explained what a pensieve was and proceeded to show Harry how to extract memories. As Harry begins extracting memories Adam turns to the others.
"The official looking letter allows you to buy a wand. Harry can show you where to buy wands. Do not use the wand without me being present or you will get us both in trouble. The adoption papers is being processed and should be done in a week." Everyone looked at Michael when Adam mention trouble.
"Why is everyone looking at me?" Michael said clueless.
"We know how rash you can be at times." Max explained.
"I just respond quickly when I perceive a threat that is all." Michael said justification.
"While we are in the magical world can you please try to think before you act?" Max asked.
"Don't worry, Max. I will keep him in line." Maria said reassuringly. At that time, Harry had finished the first batch of memories.
Adam and the others start looking at the memories that Harry had already extracted. A procedure is soon established, Harry would extract a memory then the others would watch it then Adam would take some notes while Harry extracts another batch of memories. By lunch time, they still had not reach fourth year where he participated in the Triwizard Tournament. Adam had lunch at his desk while he continued working on Harry's case. Harry and the others leave the office to have lunch at the Leaky Cauldron. Harry is disguised by Adam's secretary (who has experience disguising criminals).
They continue reviewing Harry's memories after lunch. Half a hour before the meeting, they stop so that Adam can ask Harry some questions about what they had witness. As Harry, Adam, Liz and Max proceeded to go to the meeting which was being held at the Leaky Cauldron in a private room. Harry was under his invisible coat until they arrived at the room. Adam continued to coach Harry but stop as soon as they heard the knock on the door. Just before Adam opened the he said to Harry.
"Remember ask me if you are not sure of something and do not volunteer information without conferring with me first."
Adam then opens the door.
"Thank you for coming and meeting me, Madam Bones."
"What is so important that you called in a favour to meet you here rather than my office, Mr Entwhistle?"
"I will like to introduce you to my client, Mr Harry Potter and his soon to be adoptive parents in the muggle world, Maxwell and Elizabeth Evans."
"Nice to meet you, Mr and Mrs Evans."
"Nice to meet you, Madam Bones." Max and Liz replied.
"I heard a lot different things about you, Mr Potter." Amelia said which made Harry deflate slightly.
"If it is from the Daily Prophet then most of it is lies." Harry said defensibly. Adam then adds.
"We have started ligating the Daily Prophet for their slander and we will soon be doing the same to the publishers of the children's books series supposedly about Harry."
"Best of luck with that. Why don't we get down to business. We don't have all day you know. I have more important things to do then just wait around." Madam Bones said impatiently.
"After you hear Harry's story I think you will want to clear your schedule." Adam said confidently.
"You believe his story is that important."
"Yes. Shall we begin. Harry tell Madam Bones here about your life starting at the Dursleys."
Harry starting telling the story of his life from his neglect and abuse by the Dursleys to the trials and tribulations at Hogwarts' to finally the recent attack by the dementors. Adam stopped him from mentioning the will as yet.
"You have been through quite a bit, Mr Potter if what you tell me is to be believed. Can you substantiate all the things you have told me?"
"The memories are waiting in my office right now with a pensieve set up ready to go. Do you want to go to my office to see them?"
"Are you willing to take truth serum to verify that the memories are true and unaltered?"
"I am willing to once I get emancipated." Harry said. Since Adam told him that they can not give him truth serum without permission from one of his guardians or he becomes of age.
"If your memories back up your story. I am willing to fast track your application so that we can put that offer to the test."
"So was I right. This did spike your interest." Adam said smugly.
"Alright I am interested. Let me tell my secretary to cancel all my appointments for today. Then we can proceed to your office so that you can try to substantiate Harry's claims." Madam Bones stated. Once Madam Bones was out of the room, Harry turned to Adam and asked.
"Why did you not allow me to tell her about the will?"
"It is simple really. If you told her about the will, then your credibility is shot to hell. She will think you are trying to prank her. But once she has verified your other claims then we will drop the bomb shell. Since all the other things you told her has been proven to be true she is more likely to believe that as well. We need her on our side when we take action on the will since she can have the auror force backing us."
"That sounds reasonable. What is this about suing the Daily Prophet?" Harry asked.
"One of the documents you signed yesterday was to launch legal action against the Daily Prophet which Dumbledore should have done last year but choose not to. Not that you need the money but if you had taken legal action back then, they would not have dared publish all those lies which are currently making the rounds. By refusing to take action, they think that you are weak and can be picked on with no consequences.
That is one of the reasons why I don't trust Dumbledore. He used your votes to allow the Death Eaters to escape prison or death by accepting the claims they were under the imperio curse. The reasoning he keeps giving is that they deserve a second chance. What happens to justice or responsibility if you keep giving people second, third, fourth chances? Personally I think that the only reason why he does not punish them is that he is attracted to bad boys. If you know what I mean." Adam said all this with a lot of passion. Anyone could see that this subject was come to his heart. He was working really hard on this case because he could see what a big difference this case would have on magical society.
"After every thing I experienced, I don't think I can kill someone to dispense justice." Harry said.
"You don't have to do it personally. There are people who are trained to do that type of thing." Adam said to reassure Harry.
"I will let you deal with that sort of thing. Did you plan for Madam Bones to fast track my emancipation request?" Harry asked.
"I thought it was likely. Madam Bones is a very meticulous woman. After hearing, seeing it and then she would want to verify by at least two methods. That is the way she works. If Sirius was arrested under her watch, he would never have gone to prison. Truth serum is a simple way to verify what she had seen. She is probably fast tracking your application right now. By this time tomorrow, you will be an adult in the magical world." Adam explained.
Once Madam Bones came back to the room. She put a glamour on Harry personally so that they could all go back to the office. When they arrived at the office, they see Michael, Maria, Isabel and Kyle in the waiting room reading some magical books and using transfigured sticks to look like wands to do some tricks. Michael seems to be having fun learning a shield spell which was a surprise to them all since Michael was the action type guy. Seeing him sitting down instead of pacing was a surprise but the fact that he was doing something productive with his time was a shock to Liz and Max.
As they entered the room, Madam Bones saw the number of vials sitting next to the pensieve. She turned to Harry, Liz and Max and said.
"Why don't you go and do something else while I watch your memories. Be back in a couple of hours so that I can ask you some questions." This brought a sense of relief to Harry since he would not have to experience those memories again.
"Okay, See you in a couple of hours." Liz said as she dragged Harry out.
"What is the rush?" Harry asked as soon as they closed the door.
"I want to get a wand. Now is the perfect time." Liz said.
"You sound just like my friend, Hermione. Okay, we will go to Ollivander's to get your wands." Harry said. They met the rest of the pod squad before heading to Ollivander's. As soon as they went into the store, Mr Ollivander said.
"Hello, Mr Potter. Nice job on the glamour."
"Madam Bones did it for me."
"How is your eleven inch holly wand with a phoenix tail core working fo you?"
"It is working quite well except when I battled Voldemort. Our wands did something strange when we fought." Harry responded.
"Please explain." Mr Ollivandeer said with interest.
"A gold cage appeared when our spells collided." Harry explained.
"Did Voldemort look surprised when the wands did that?" Mr Ollivander asked.
"Yes. He was totally surprised." This comment made Mr Ollivander made look all of suddden fearful. Mr Ollivander then changed the subject.
"Something is different about you but I can't put a finger on it. Did you get your magic unbound?" Mr Ollivander asked. As usual he was freaking Harry out a little. So Harry decides to change the subject.
"No I did not get my magic unbound. The reason why I am here is to help my friends here get new wands." Mr Ollivander then turned to the pod squad. His went wide when he was looking at them.
"I have never seen people like you before. You associate with interesting people, Mr Potter." Mr Ollivander said before turning back to the Pod Squad.
"Do you have documentation to prove you have the right to a wand?" Mr Ollivander asked. Since he knew that the Ministry treated everyone that was different as animals.
"We have the documentation right here." Liz said as she stepped forward and passed him all the correct documentation for the entire group. Liz was getting freaked out by the strangeness of this man.
"Everything seems to be in order." Mr Ollivander said after reviewing the documentation.
"Who wants to go first?" Mr Ollivander asked.
"I will." Liz said excitedly. Mr Ollivander began his usual song and dance when trying find Liz a wand. After trying more wands than Harry. Mr Ollivander said.
"Are you sure you need a wand? You have the power to do magic without one."
"Last night I read that delicate charms and spells benefit from having a wand. Since it helps focus the magic." Liz explained.
"That is true. I would recommend a staff since no wand could cope with the power you put through it. A staff with a crystal on the top to help with focus is what you need." Mr Ollivander said.
"Can we get staffs on those permits?" Liz asked.
"Yes. Even though no one has used a staff in over a thousand years. It is still allowed. In fact, Merlin was the last known user of a staff."
"Do you have staffs in stock?' Liz asked.
"No. Since there is no demand for staffs so I don't keep them in stock. I will have to make them individually so it will be expensive. In all likelihood you will all need staffs." Mr Ollivander said. Liz looked depressed by that since if it was few dollars she did not mind. Seeing the look on Liz's face, Harry stepped in and asked.
"How much would it cost?"
"150 galleons each which is 900 galleons in total for the 6 of them."
"How much is that in British Pounds?" Liz asked.
"Four and a half thousand pounds." Mr Ollivander replied which sunk Liz.
"We will take it. I will pay for them all now." Harry said as he put the money on the counter. Liz then went to Harry and said.
"You did not have to."
"I want to and you have already helped me so much. This is just a small repayment of the assistance you guys have all provided me." Liz hugged Harry after he said that which was closely followed by Maria. The others just gave him their thanks but without the hug.
Liz was first to select the raw materials to make her staff. She first selected the wood, then the cores and finally the gem. Max followed her since they had to get back to Adam's office so that Harry could answer any questions Madam Bones might have. As Max, Liz and Harry got ready to leave, Harry asked.
"Is it possible to make the staffs look like walking sticks?"
"I see where you going. It is possible but it would not be as powerful if I do so." Mr Ollivander replied.
"What do you think? Full-length or walking sticks." Harry asked.
"I want as much power as possible." Michael said immediately.
"I feel weird holding a staff." Maria said.
"I would stand off if I had a staff." Isabel said.
"Whatever." Kyle said.
"Walking stick since it will be less noticeable in public." Liz said.
"Same." Max said.
"How long will take for you to make them, Mr Ollivander?" Harry asked.
"At least a fortnight."
"Can you make at least two in say a week?" Harry asked.
"It is possible which ones do you want me to rush?"
"Max's and Liz's."
"I see what I can do. If you check early next week I can give you a definitely answer."
"Okay. Good bye Mr Ollivander." Harry said as he and Max and Liz left the store.
"Why the rush?" Max asked.
"I have a trial on next week for under age magic usage and breach of the statue of secrecy. If I am going to the trial, I want your support with weapons on hand if necessary."
"We will be there for you." Liz reassured Harry.
They went back to Mr Entwhistle's office. Madam Bones and Adam Entwhistle was discussing something when they came in.
"You should have been back an hour ago." Madam Bones stated as soon as they walked in.
"Sorry, we had an unexpected problem getting our wands." Liz said.
"You did get them." Adam asked.
"No. None of the wands at the store was right. So Mr Ollivander is going to have to make us some custom design ones." Liz explained. Harry did not want Madam Bones to ask why none of the wands would work for them so he asked her.
"Have you finished viewing my memories, Madam Bones?"
"Yes, they have substantiated what you told me earlier. But until you testify before me under truth serum. I am going to still classify everything you said and those memories as being suspect."
"Thank you for your honesty. Do you want to ask your questions now?" Harry asked.
"Rather than ask you questions today and again under truth serum, I will hold off on the questions for today. But I will still investigate some of your allegations, they are just too serious to ignore like the miscarriage of justice on Mr Black's case, dementors near your home and the claims of abuse and neglect by the Dursleys."
"Thank you Madam Bones." Harry said.
"I got to go begin these investigations and to fast track your emancipation. Since I seriously doubt I can get the Dursleys or Professor Dumbledore to consent to us doping you with truth serum. Do you mind if I take these memories?" Madam Bones asked. Harry looked at Adam who nodded his head.
"Go right ahead if you think it will help with your investigations."
"Thank you. Would you be available to meet me here at 2:30 tomorrow afternoon? I should be able to get your emancipation application process by then."
"I will be here." Harry said.
"Don't be late and ask Mr Entwhistle about things to avoid before questioning under truth serum." Madam Bones said as she left.
"What things do I have do I have to avoid?" Harry asked.
"It is just things that react badly to truth serum. I get you list before you leave." Adam replied.
