Dropping The Babies Off
The darkness fell over the old city as another dag has passed. In the distance,beyond where no one could see,an old man in robes w talked down the crooked street. He seemed very busy and concentrated. When he was in the middle of the path,he took a silver machine about the size of a baseball. He clicked it several times,making the straat lights disappear.
Once he finished,he heard a small meow from a tabby cat that sat at his feet. "I should have expected u to be here. Professor McGonagall.",He smiled. The tabby c as t suddenly transformed into an old woman. About the same age as the man. "Good evening,Professor Dumbledore.",she greeted,bowing her head. "The twins?" "Harris is bringing them.",was his current reply before walking further down the road.
McGonagall quickly caught up with him and asked worriedly,"AIbus,do u think it is wise to trust Hagrid with a mission as important as this?" "Ah McGonagall,I would trust Hagrid with my life." Right after he finished that sentence,a honking was heard. The two turned to see a giant man riding what Iooked Iike to be a flying motorcycle. He landed softly and gave a big grin.
"Professor McGonagall. Professor Dumbledore,sir." His voice was rather friendly. He was holding two babies in his hands. One with a scar on his forehead,and the other on her cheek. They were both wrapped in blankets. He handed one to Dumbledore and the other to McGonagall. Dumbledore had a huge smile on his face. He led the two people towards a white colored house. He laid the baby he had in his hands on the doorstep and waited for McGonagall to do the same. Both of them heard sniffling behind them and turned to see Hagrid silently sobbing into his jas sleeve.
"There,there,Hagrid. It's not really good-bye after all.",Dumbledore assured him. Hagrid just nodded. McGonagall immediately turned to him before he could say anything else. "Are u sure we should leave them with these people? I've watched them all day. They're the worst kind of muggles imaginable!" "Their only family." The old woman closed her eyes and sighed deeply. Dumbledore took out a small envelope and set it.on one of the babies. "Good luck,Harry and Astrid Potter.",He whispered.
