As Saiki awoke to the striking of thunder he immediately noticed something wasn't right.
First and foremost he found that he was missing his limiters, while this caught his attention he knew it wouldn't be a problem.
This was due to anomely number two, he appeared to be in a different body. Being in someone elses body meant Saiki couldn't channel all of his power.
Third was his surroundings. A quick check using his clarvoyance revealed that he was on some odd island off the coast of the UK, and in ,apparantly, another dimension. Yeah.
An then another strange fact.
There was currently a rather large brearded man headed towards his location, this on it's own wouldn't be very alarming however Saiki had to factor in that the man was riding a flying motorcycle.
While not a weird senario compared to what he was usually faced with, Saiki had to admit that it managed to surprise him, if only just a little.
Unfortunatlely the shock wared off fast and he was soon in his regular mood of permanant groan.
/I can already tell this is going to be a pain. Having read his mind I know he is here for the person who's body I'm in however until I find a way to leave I'm going to have to play along. Either way, I'll attract attention seeing who's body this is/
No sooner had Saiki finished his train of thought had the Bearded man, who Saiki now knew to be Hagrid, landed and headed straight for the door.
The shoddy wooden door thumps, another person present decided it would be wise to back away. While two other occupants, unwisely, approached the door; the harier of the two with a gun.
With a second bump the door creeks open, and then falls off it's hinges. The burly half man steps through the doorway.
"Ahhh!", a ,very unmanly, scream rips through the heavy atmosphere from the mouth of his 'uncle'.
The walking bread appears sheepish, "Sorry 'bout that." He says as he replaces the door back into the gaping hole in the wall.
"I demand that you leave at once, Sir! You are breaking and entering!"
Hagrid confronts the gun barrel being pointed at him and bends it towards the ceiling. "Dry up, Dursley, you great prune."
A shot rings through the air and all occupants, bar Hagrid and Saiki, scream at the sudden boom.
Hagrid loks over at Dudley, "Mind, I haven't seen you since you was a baby, Harry, but you're a bit more along than I would have expected. Particularly 'round the middle!"
Saiki resists the urge to face-palm.
"I-I-I'm not Harry," Dudley squeaks, " He is!" Pointing at Saiki.
With a loud sigh Saiki steps forward a betrayed expression on his face. /I was hoping I could avoid being found and lay low until I find a way to get out of here; guess that plan is out of the window/ Saiki glares at the chubby boy, then looks back to Hagrid with a bored expression. He opens his mouth to speak but Hagrid beats him to it.
"Oh, well, of course you are! Got something for ya. 'Fraid I might have sat on it at some point! I imagine that it'll taste fine just the same. Ahh. Baked it myself." He shoves the cake in to Saiki's hands, "Words and all. Heh."
" Thank you sir, that is awefully generous of you, however I don't belive I know you." He tries to sound as enthusiastic as possible.
Which isn't really all that much.
Nonetheless a smile forms in the sea of beard "It's not every day that your young man turns eleven, now is it?"
The half giant stomps over and plops down on the cauch. The metal frame creeks under his weight. Aiming at the fireplace with his battered umbrella, he casts two sparks and sets the dry-ish wood a flame.
The Dursleys gasp.
Saiki is not amused.
"Who are you?", Vernon demands.
With a glare Hagrid answers "Rubeus Hagrid. Keeper of keys and grounds at Hogwarts. Course, you'll know all about Hogwarts."
Dudley desides now is a good time to speak up again, "Not really no."
/Does the universe hate me, really why do you need to know/. Saiki thinks as Dudley once again ruins his plan to not add fuel to the metaphorical flame.
Of course the half giant is more then happy to answer. "No? Blimey, Harry, didn't you ever wonder where your mum and dad learned it all?"
/Why is talking to me all of a sudden?! Okay so apparently I was being too quiet. He thinks I'm shy rather than disinterested./
"Maybe I would if I ever knew them." He tried again at proving he couldn't really care less.
Hagrid grimaced, while the Dursleys appeared vaguely shocked. /Damn, apparently I'm not doing a very good job at the whole 'acting' thing. Though it's hard to act like someone you have never seen or heard/
"Sorry 'bout that my boy," Hagrid apologises warmly.
/Not your boy/
"Well the truth is they were wizards, and as a matter of fact so are you Harry."
A silence ensues. Hagrid keeps his eyes on Saiki to see his reaction, while the Dursleys stare at the man in shock. The stick of a woman quickly bears a scowl but keeps quiet waiting for 'Harry' to speek. Which doen't happen.
/It feels strange being addressed by someone else's name/ He thinks with an impassive expression.
Eventually he decides the silence lasted long enough. /He'll probably think I'm in denial and will do some annoying thing to prove his point/
"I'm a what?"
Hagrid smiles again at that. /Seems I have appeased his vision of Harry./ "A wizard. And a thumping good one at that, I'd wager. Once you train up a little."
"That can't be possible..." He mumbles as he tries his part at this whole 'expressions' idea. Looking down, squinting slightly. /Being seaweed in that one school preformance totally made me master the art of acting brainless./
"Well, Harry, did you ever make anything happen? Anything you couldn't explain when you were angry or scared?"
Saiki assumes yes and so he nods.
"Ah" He hums as he approaches 'Harry' with a letter in his outstretched hand. Reluctantly Saiki takes it. Opening the envelope and reading aloud:
"Dear, Mr. Potter. We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts' School of Witchcraft and Wizardry."
"I'm sorry but I'm not interested." As soon as the words left his mouth he knew he wessed up his acting again.
"You're what?" Hagrid asked, eyes wide.
"Not interested, and even if he was he would not be allowed to go!" Petnia interupted.
"Oh, and I suppose a great Muggle like yourself's going to stop him, are you?" The half giant retorted.
/Guess he forgot what I just said/
" I will not pay for some crackpot old fool to teach him magic tricks!" Vernon cut in.
Saiki stepped back just as the man giant pulled an umbrella on his 'uncle'. "Never insult Albus Dumbledore in front of me."
He then notices that Dudley had been eating the long forgotten cake. Re-aiming his umbrella at Dudley's rear he summons a tail which spurts from the boy's coccyx.
The Dursleys then proceed to have a screaming match as they chase after Dudley who is running around in panic.
"Oh, um, I'd appreciate if you didn't tell anyone at Hogwarts about that. Strictly speaking, I'm not allowed to do magic." The half giant scratches his neck seepishly.
Hagrid glances at a clock, "Ooh, we're a bit behind schedule. Best be off. Unless you'd rather stay, of course. Hmm?"
Inwardly sighing Saiki decides that he should best go. /Weather I like it or not, these people won't leave me alone untill I go with. Maybe I can complete this duty and be done with it, then focus my efforts on getting back home./
"Yes, let's go."
-I have nothing to say for myself
