Đọc lại Ngoại truyện Harry Potter – Hồi 1: Nhân vật bí ẩn
I woke up as soon as the sun hit my face. I groaned and sat down to my bed, “I want to sleep more.” I slammed my body back to my bed, “Danny goes wash up now, and goes to the great hall quick.” I heard aunt Hooch spoke, I looked towards the door, and she was leaning against the doorway.
“Alright, alright.” I stood up and went to the bathroom and did my daily routine, “Why the rush.” I brushed my teeth as more questions come to my mind, thinking what the next prank we’ll be doing today with the twins.
After I’m done with my routine in the bathroom, I changed my nightclothes into a grey dress and headed to the great hall. But I was surprised by the loud noises of party popper and clapping hands, and I looked at everyone confused.
“Grandpapa, what’s going on?” I walked up to my grandfather and stood next to uncle Snape, “Here.” Grandfather gave me a letter, I looked at him in confusion but then it struck me, I hurried looked at the letter, and it was my Hogwarts letter.
“No…” I mumbled as I opened the letter, there were two papers. The first one says

I stared at them with widened eyes, and then to all students. They all smiled at me.
“I, I got my letter.” I started crying, as all the staff congratulated me and gave me a warm hug.
I ran to my friends as they all hugged me. I ran to the twins and showed them my letter.
“Congratulations, Danny!” Fred hugged me.
“I hope you get in Gryffindor.” George pinched my cheeks.
“It doesn’t matter which house you go to Danny, but I hope you do go to Gryffindor,” Percy said as Oliver nodded and smiled at me.
“He’s right, we do hope you get in Gryffindor, but for me, it doesn’t matter.” Oliver ruffled my hair.
“Thanks!” I grinned at them.
“Danny.” My grandfather called out for me; I excused myself from my Hufflepuff friends and went to him.
“What is it, grandpapa?” I smiled, “I wish you to go with Hagrid to fetch someone.” He said.
“Oh, that okay. But when grandpapa?” I asked one more time. “Now.” Uncle Hagrid came out of nowhere.
“Now? Isn’t it a bit late?” “We’ll have to fetch this kid; I’m sure you’ll have fun.”
“Alright, then.” I shrug.
Both uncle Hagrid and I went to the muggle world; it was fascinating.
“We’re here.” The house was in a rock in the ocean. I have no idea why we are here, but I’m sure it will be fun.
Uncle Hagrid kicked the door down and left a big dud as thunder came. People were people screamed in fear.
“Sorry ‘bout that.” Uncle Hagrid said as he fixed the door back where it belongs.
“I demand that you leave at once, Sir! You’re breaking and entering!” The old fat man said as he held a gun towards us.
² Harry’s POV ²
There are a giant man and a little girl who seems a similar age to me. But she’s a bit small.
The giant man walked towards uncle Vernon and grabs the gun and bends it upwards.
“Dry up, Dursley, you great prune.” He said as the gun fires.
“Ah!!” Aunt Petunia and Dudley gasp, as the little girl covered her ears.
“Uncle, that wasn’t nice!” She still covering her ears from the shot.
“Sorry about that, Danny.” He chuckled. But then he spotted Dudley and walked a bit closer to him.
“Mind, I haven’t seen you since you were a baby, Harry, but you’re a bit more along than I would have expected. Particularly ‘round the middle.” He rubs his stomach.
“I-I’m not Harry,” Dudley said in fear.
“Hahaha! Silly uncle! He’s over there.” The little girl giggled and pointed at me.
“I-l am.” I moved from my hiding place.
“Oh, well, of course, you are! Got something for you, Danny, please give it to him.” He looked over the little.
“Here.” she gave me a box and chuckled at me, her smile is so sweet. She’s so cute.
“Fraid I might have sat on it at some point! I imagine that it’ll taste fine just the same; she helped me bake that cake. Words and all. Heh. I did the writing.” The giant man patted her head.
“Go on, Harry, open it.” She grins, I opened the box, it was a cake. It says ‘Happee Birdae Harry.’
“It’s not every day that your young man turns eleven, now is it?”
The man sits down on the couch; he took his umbrella out and pointed it at the empty fire. Two sparks fly out the fire starts – the Dursley gasp.
I put the cake down to the table, “Excuse me, who are you?” I asked. “
“Rubeus Hagrid. The keeper of hey and grounds at Hogwarts also this is Danny, Dumbledore’s granddaughter. Course, you’ll know all about the Hogwarts.” He introduced himself and the little girl with him.
“No? Blimey, Harry, didn’t you ever wonder where your mum and dad learned it all?”
“Learnt what?” I asked.
“You’re a wizard, Harry.”
“I-I’m a what?”
“A wizard.” She said.
“And a thumping good one at that, I’d wager. Once you train up a little.” He finished her sentence.
“No, you’ve made a mistake. I can’t be... a-a wizard. I mean, I’m just... Harry. Just Harry.” I said I saw from the corner of my eyes; she’s laughing silently.
“Well, Just Harry, did you ever make anything happen? Anything you couldn’t explain when you were angry or scared?”
My expression softens. “Ah.” He smiles. I heard Dudley whimper from fear.
Hagrid stood up and handed me the same letter that has been sent to the house for a while. I opened it and read it out loud.
“Dear, Mr. Potter. We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts’ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry!” I read.
“He’ll not be going!”
“But why not!” Danny said and was about to cry.
“I’m sorry, child, but we swore when we took him in, we’d put an end to this rubbish!” Uncle Vernon’s expression softens when be apologized to her.
“You knew?? You knew all along and never told me?” I turned to Aunt Petunia.
“Of course we knew. How could you not be? My perfect sister being who she was. Oh, my mother and father were so proud the day she got her letter. We have a witch in the family. Isn’t it wonderful? I was the only who to see her for what she was. A freak! And then she met that Potter, and then she had you, and I knew you’d be just the same, just as strange, just as abnormal. And then, if you please, she went and got herself blown up! And we got landed with you.” She teared a bit.
² Danny’s POV ²
“Blown up? You told me my parents died in a car crash!” Harry yelled at them.
What’s a car crash? Mostly what’s a car? I don’t really read about muggles, all my own books that have has been with since I was a little we’re about witches, wizards, gods, and demons.
“A car crash? A car crash kills James and Lily Potter?” Uncle Hagrid wasn’t pleased why the reason they told Harry.
“We had to tell him something.”
“It’s an outrage! It’s a scandal!”
“He’ll not be going!” The man said.
“Oh, and I suppose a great Muggle like your self’s going to stop him, are you?”
I moved towards Harry and stood beside him.
“Muggle?” Harry turned towards me.
“It means, non-magic folk. Like them.” I said.
“This boy’s had his name down ever since he was born! He’s going to the finest school of witchcraft and wizardry in the world, and he’ll be under the greatest headmaster Hogwarts’ has ever seen: Albus Dumbledore.” Uncle Hagrid said, I smiled as soon he mentioned my grandfather.
“I will not pay for some crackpot old fool to teach him magic tricks!” The man yelled.
My anger rose when he disrespected my grandfather; my grandfather is the best headmaster! He’s nice! But a bit mad sometimes, but he’s still the greatest wizard!
Uncle Hagrid whipped out his umbrella and pointed it at Mr. Dursley, “Never insult Albus Dumbledore in front of me, especially at the kid.”
I heard a munching noise, I turned towards, and uncle Hagrid saw the boy eating Harry’s cake, he points his umbrellas at him, but then a grey tail grows.
“Ahh!” Dudley screams, and his family joined, and they chased the boy.
Harry and I laughed, “Oh, um, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t tell anyone at Hogwarts about that. I was strictly speaking; I’m not allowed to do magic.” Uncle Hagrid whispered to Harry.
Harry nods, “okay.” and smiled. I checked the clock, and we are a bit behind the time, I tapped his arm and showed him my watch.
“Ooh, we’re a bit behind schedule. Best be off. Unless you instead stay, of course. Hmm?” He left and waited outside.
“Come on, Harry; we will be late.” I linked my arms around his.
He looked at me and then to the family who is panicking because of the tail.
“Let’s go.” I grinned, and both of us left.
We walked around the streets of London, some people were staring at us but mostly at my uncle.
“All students must be equipped with... One standard size two pewter cauldron and may bring if they desire either an owl, a cat, or a toad.” He reads the paper and then turned towards my uncle.
“Can we find all this in London?”
“But if you know where to go.”
We got to a corner store and entered, and it was The Leaky Cauldron. Music and people are talking.
“Ah! Hagrid! The usual, I presume, and it seems like you brought Danny with you, or she ran away again?” Mr. Tom said as the customers laughed.
I blushed from the embarrassment, yes I ran away a lot of times. Since uncle Snape said learning about Muggles are just a waste of time, so I tried to sneak to check the muggle world but end up getting caught.
“No, thanks, Tom. And Danny didn’t run away, both of us are on official Hogwarts business today. Just helping young Harry here buy his school supplies.” Uncle Hagrid smiled.
“Bless my soul; it’s Harry Potter.” Mr. Tom said the pub went silent. A man came up to Harry and shook his hand.
“Welcome back, Mr. Potter, welcome back.” The man said, then a which comes up and shakes Harry’s hand.
“Doris Crockford, Mr. Potter, I can’t believe I’m meeting you at last.”
Then we saw a man with a turban on his head appears in front of us, and it’s professor Quirrell.
He’s nice, but I don’t like him at all, I always get those bad vibes towards him sometimes. Because I would catch him staring at me, and it’s very creepy.
“Harry P-potter. Can’t tell you how pleased I am to meet you.” Professor Quirrell said.
“Hello, Professor. I didn’t see you there. Harry, this is Professor Quirrell. He’ll be your and also Danny’s Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher at Hogwarts.” Uncle Hagrid explained.
“Oh, nice to meet you.” Harry puts his hand out for a shake, but Professor Quirrell refused and stared at his hands.
“F-fearfully fascinating subject. N-not that you need it, e-eh, Potter? Heheh.”
“Yes, well, we must be going now lots to buy. Heh.”
We left and went to the backroom winery in front of a brick wall.
“See Harry! You’re famous!” I smiled at him.
“But why am I famous? Danny? All those people back there, how is it they know who I am.” Harry said.
“I don’t know, no one told me, but all I know is you’re famous. But maybe uncle Hagrid knows why.” Both of his turned to uncle Hagrid; he looked at us and shook his head.
“I’m not exactly sure I’m the right person to tell you that, Harry.” He said and began to tap the brick wall clockwise with his umbrella. The blocks shifted and opened up to reveal a hidden, busy street.
“Welcome, Harry, to Diagon Alley.”
