The Man Who Loses Everything: Part 3
Remus: *stands outside of Number Four Privet Drive*
Remus: *stares at the door, heart racing*
*muted shuffling is heard inside, then the door is thrown open*
Petunia: *wrinkles her nose at the state of Remus’s clothes* May I help you?
Petunia: *bristles* Mrs. Dursley.
Petunia: *glances around, making sure the street is empty* *hisses* How dare you come here.
Remus: M-Mrs. Dursley I… WAIT!
Remus: *frantic* *raises his voice so he can be heard in the house* … Mrs. Dursley, I just want to see Harry, just for a moment. *voice cracks as he struggles to remain calm* Lily was one of my dearest friends-
Petunia: *muffled from behind the locked door* I don’t care! I won’t have your kind barging into my home, endangering my family with your horrid, freakish abilities!
Remus: I just want to-
Petunia: YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE!
Petunia: *screams, slamming her fists against the door* LEAVE!!!
Remus: *weakly* … Don’t take Harry from me too.
Remus: *gasps as the door suddenly glows, cracking and splitting down the middle, revealing Petunia’s wide, terrified eye on the other side*
Petunia: *her voice trembling* Leave us alone… y-you vile monster.
Remus: *hand slowly drops down by his side, hanging limply*
*Remus takes a few unsteady steps back. With one final look at Privet Drive, he disapparates, leaving the quiet street behind*
