Harry grew up with his only living relatives beliving that his parents died in a car crash. His relatives treated him very badly for 11 years, when he became 11 he got a letter. He had never recived a letter before so he was about to open it when his cousin ripped it out of his hands and yelling «dad dad Harry's got a letter». When his uncle Vernon read it he had a wierd exspression, and told Harry and Dudley to leave the room.
Next morning there came more letters but Vernon got them first and burned them in the fireplase. Some days later it burst letters from all directions in the house, but Harry didnt catch a single one. Vernon gave the family 5 minutes to pack, and then they were all sitting in the car driving like mad. They changed directions once in a while and Vernon grunted «shake em off». When Vernon was happy in the end after several hours, they stopped with a lake. Vernon came happely back to the car from a guy and said that they was allowed to borrow a hut out on the sea.
They even got to borrow a tiny old boat to get there. The hut was small and cold, mostly made of rocks. Harry had to sleep on the hard rock floor, and Dudley slept on the sofa. Vernon and aunt Petunia slept upstears.
In the dead of night Harry was watching Dudleys clock and wait for his birthday. When the clock was 12 in the night, he heard a load BANG. This seemed to wake up the dursley's, and the door fell down to the floor a giant man was standing there. Vernon said in a scared voice «im armed, you are warned». The man came in and said «sorry about the door.» then he put the door back up. Later on he sat down in the sofa and tell Harry that he was a wizard and that there is a school for him and many others. Harry get shocked by the news and said «but i cant be a wizard.» And then Vernon step in and says «that's enough do not tell him anymore, i forbid you.» Hagrid give Harry a new letter and let him read it.
