Petunia looked at her nephew and saw the bruise forming, "What happened?" Petunia said pointing to the bruise on Harry's cheek.

Harry lowered his head and responded "I fell."

Petunia nodded and then turned around. "Chop up the vegetables and put them in the pot with the broth then turn the stove on and don't let anything burn." Petunia ordered.

"Yes Aunt Petunia." Harry and Petunia made dinner, Vernon didn't bother Harry the whole time. After dinner his Aunt Petunia and Dudley went out for ice cream. Vernon stayed behind. Harry was cleaning up when his Uncle Vernon hit him on the back of his head.

Vernon looked at harry with dislike and barked at him, "I am going to ask you one more time boy, where were you?"

Harry looked at his Uncle's feet and stammered out, "I-I-I just went to the library."

Vernon not pleased that the boy did not look into his eyes responded, "And who said you could go to the library?

Harry raised his head and looked his Uncle in the eyes, "No one sir."

Vernon launched himself at Harry, grabbed his arms and started squeezing them. "So you thought you could just run off?" He spat.

Harry trembled slightly but tried to defend himself. "I wasn't running sir I-I swear, I-I just wanted something normal to do."

Vernon narrowed his eyes slightly, "Normal?"


Vernon threw Harry to the floor then grabbed him by his neck and pulled him to his feet. "If you ever try to run off again, I will find you and make you wish you have never been born boy!" Vernon then threw Harry against the wall. "You better have everything cleaned up before your aunt gets home boy"

Vernon went back into the living room, sat down and turned on the telly. Harry went back to cleaning up the dinner, luckily, cleaning up only took an half an hour. Once Harry had finish, he went to his room and went to sleep.
