Task
Dudley sat still, staring at the wall. The adrenaline rush of the past few days gradually subsided and the dark reality replaced its void. The magical world had a villain - not unlike those movies he watched. His cousin, Harry Potter, was somehow not the underdog Dudley always thought he was. Instead, he was some sort of survivor, and the He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named weirdo wizard wanted him dead. On top of that, there was some freak magic thing on their house that was supposed to get lifted when Harry turned seventeen, so the Dursleys had to leave their house and go to a safe house accompanied by some wizards. Everything still seemed very dream-like to Dudley. Yet, somehow, he knew that all that had actually happened. And, now, he needed to process it all...

As he thought about the pending move and his future, Dudley sighed. He had been told by his parents that he simply couldn’t take everything. But how was he meant to choose? His head was a complete whirlwind. Once upon a time he used to blame everything on Harry, but now he knew better. He couldn’t just point the finger at his cousin; it wasn’t his fault he’d had all this trouble.

Blimey! Dudley couldn’t quite believe that he actually felt sorry for his cousin. But ever since they were attacked by those two creatures a couple of years ago, he could at least understand what Harry was going through. His anger towards his cousin had mellowed since then and he found himself feeling more sympathetic.

As Dudley went through his things and began packing a bag he suddenly felt...strange. he sighed as he through a comic into his bag. Was he actually starting to miss Harry? Yes...he would, he would miss him. A part of him wanted to say something to his cousin, tell him to be safe. After everything he had done to Harry in the past, he hadn't flinched when those things came. Harry had saved his life and he would never forget that.

He heard his mother calling for him to hurry up and come downstairs. As he threw in the last bits and pieces of his life so far, he left the room and walked downstairs. Where his parents and his cousin were waiting.

His parents looked worried, annoyed and furious. Dudley was reminded of the time, several years ago, when they were besieged by hundreds of owls determined to deliver Harry’s letter. Vernon and Petunia were obstinately determined to deny Harry his missive, Dudley shuddered at the memory of having a pig’s tail, but bore Harry no further animosity.
‘Hi, Dudley.’ Harry greeted his cousin with a shy grin.
‘How’s things, Harry?’ Dudley extended his fist for a bump, and pulled Harry in for a hug, much to the displeasure of Mr and Mrs Dursley. ‘So you’re gonna get us out of here to somewhere safe, yeah?’
Harry nodded, glad to break the ill-disguised hostility from his aunt and uncle. ‘Actually, there’ll be a few Aurors arriving shortly, so make sure you pack everything you want and need, Dudley, it won’t be possible to come back here again.’
Dudley looked around at the neat house without emotion, although he felt sad for his parents, he knew he’d was glad he’d never see the place again.

So many memories flooded Dudley's mind. His acceptance to Smeltings, each photograph being put on the matlepiece and the wall, each time he went on a shopping trip because he had grown a size, each celebration of his very existence. It was so easy to think of that and overlook Harry, who had always been in the background. Told to take the photographs of the smiling Dursley family and warned not to drop the camera. Shoved into his cupboard, whenever he wasn't needed to cook or clean or garden.

As the wizard police came to bundle them out of the house and Dudley knew that he would likely never see his cousin again, he opened his mouth to say - something. Sorry? Thank you for not leaving us to die? I'll miss you?

But with his parents there, his mother still impatient, his father still glaring at Harry, he faltered. It would be ridiculous. Too little, too late, and Harry would think he was just an idiot. Since when did he think that Harry's opinion of him mattered anyway?

His resolve broke, and he snapped his mouth closed, instead simply holding his hand out for Harry to shake.

"I still don't understand why we have to move away from here. I put my life and soul - as well as my life savings - into this house and garden. You can't expect us to just up and move away!" whined Vernon. "Surely with all your magic and whatnot, you can protect us and we can just stay here. Nobody explains anything to me. They just say, pack your things and you will move somewhere safe. And we can never come back here again! Are you serious? You think I will go along with all that? Who made this decision? That old man with the long beard? What was his name? Dumbledore?"

Vernon looked to Petunia for support. Surely she would speak up and ask these wizards why exactly the whole Dursley family had to move away from Privet Drive.

Petunia Dursley always stood four square behind her husband in matters to do with magic. The mere mention of that dreaded word was enough to make Petunia boil with fury as she remembered her parents reverential overindulgence of Lily, her superior attitude, and, of course the humiliations Petunia suffered. But, as Vernon spewed his invective bile at her nephew, some deep unnatural fear coursed through her, forcing her to stay mute.

Vernon turned his attention towards her, expecting her fulsome backing, but Petunia looked nervously away, knowing in her heart that Harry was here because whatever was coming their way was deadly, and unable to thank the boy for this act of kindness. Petunia took up her hand luggage and announced that she was ready to leave, and checked Dudley had some food for the journey, leaving Vernon to his rantings, and for a moment she wished her husband would see the magnitude of the situation.

Vernon rolled his eyes when he saw that there was to be no support - moral or otherwise - forthcoming from his wife. Left alone, he turned to the wizard police that were beckoning him to hurry up and get into the car.

"Have you packed everything you wish to take with you?" asked one of the wizards.

"No, I haven't finished packing," said Vernon grumpily. "I don't want to go anywhere. But if I do go, I will want to take the whole house with me!"

"That is easily enough achieved," replied one of the other wizards. He pulled out his wand, and uttered the incantation, "Diminuendo!" Suddenly the whole of Number 4 Privet Drive started to shrink, until it was the size of a tiny, doll's house. The wizard went over and picked it up, then handed it to Vernon. "I guess you will agree to leave now that you can take your precious house and all of its contents with you?"

Ingratitude curled across Vernon’s lips as the doll’s size house was plonked in his hand, Petunia and Dudley rushed to the back seats of the waiting car, while Vernon surveyed the empty space where Number 4 Privet Drive had once proudly stood.
‘You… you people!!’ He spat the words out, more angry and hate filled than ever before.

Harry looked at the Aurors, who were putting themselves in danger to take the Dursley family into magical protection, and nodded for them to make their way to the safe-house with his aunt and cousin, he would deal with his uncle.

Taking a deep breath, Harry tried to pitch his voice at a reasonable tone so as not to aggravate Vernon further.
‘I know this is difficult for you, unc-uncle Vernon, but it’s for your own good. There are bad people out there who will come after you, aunt Petunia and Dudley, because-because of me.’
Vernon swivelled around, very quickly for such a large man, and was inches from Harry’s face.
‘I knew you were trouble the moment I set eyes on you! Just the same as your parents and look at how they ended up! Well, mark my words, Harry Potter, I’m not buying all this about an evil wizard, this is all about you exacting revenge on me, even though I took you in when you had no where else to go.’ Vernon paused for breath, and jabbed Harry in the chest. ‘Just you restore my house, now!’

During Vernon's outburst, Harry stood burning with anger. He would never have expected his uncle to understand, but something about his complete denial that there even was a Voldemort brought back some painful memories, and he flexed his right hand.

"Don't you get any ideas about hitting me, boy! You will put my house back this instant!"

Boy...

Harry had, in fact, had no intention of hitting his uncle, but that particular option was beginning to look quite tempting indeed. He instead turned and began to walk towards Dedalus Diggle to ask him to restore the house, but Vernon's meaty hand landed on his shoulder.

"Now where do you think you're -"

WHAM!

Vernon was laid flat out on the ground, and Harry stood above him. He wasn't certain whether his magic had burst out of him or he had simply used his fist, but his rage receded and drained from him as soon as it had come.

"All right, all right. Calm down everyone!" cried Dedalus Diggle, who was trying to stop from laughing at the sight of the ginormous Muggle who was now splayed out on the pavement before him. "Wingardium Leviosa!" he cried as he pointed his wand at Vernon, who lifted off the ground a few inches, then flopped back down. Increased volume will be needed for a human of this size, mused Dedalus. "WINGARDIUM LEVIOSA!" he shouted, and this time the inert body of Vernon Dursley lifted well off the ground, trembling like a massive amount of jelly that had escaped from a bowl. Dedalus skilfully directed it into the car.

"Mrs Dursley, you'll be driving" said one of the other wizards. He then placed the doll's house version of Number 4 Privet Drive carefully on the back seat of the car.

"Okay, are we ready to go now?" asked Diggle.

Petunia's head nodded, her lips pursing as she listened to the wizard.As Petunia slowly backed out of the driveway and drove away, Dudley couldn't help but feel an odd mixture of emotions, staring at the gradually receding area where Number Four, Privet Drive had been. A little bit of hope and trepidation for the future, and a little nostalgia mixed with guilt from the past.

Harry had been sitting quietly for quite some time, staring at the window. Dudley tapped his shoulder gently and coughed awkwardly, clearing his throat when he turned to look at him. "Look, I'm sorry for the way I've treated you. I really don't think you're a waste of space. " Dudley looked at his shiny trainers, a stark comparison to Harry's tattered pair. That seemed like a good start. He breathed, taking a moment to compose himself, and opened his eyes, ready to speak to him.

Vernon Dursley felt strange. It was as if he was seasick. He felt the gently rocking boat and the hum of the engine, but when he opened his eyes, he realised he was in a car and that his wife was driving. His body was squashed into the front seat and somebody had stretched the seat belt over his ample belly. In the back seat, he saw Dudley and Harry.

Sitting up straight, he blurted out, "Where are we going, Petunia?" Then he remembered that his precious home had been shrunken down to the size of a doll's house. "Did you bring our family home? Where is it? Give it to me now!" he demanded before adding, "I'm hungry. Did any of you bring any food to snack on?"

Dudley sighed as he listened to his father's whining, wishing that he could just escape this heat-stifling and tension rising car. He tapped his foot against the floor, staring out the window. The streets were passing by quickly, taking him further and further from Privet Drive. He pressed his face against the window, enjoying the cool feeling on his skin.
"Dudley!" Petunia snapped. "Get your face off the window!"
Dudley frowned, but immediately listened. Now faced with nothing to do, he turned his attention to the seat in front of him and began counting the number of times the light shining on it made the seat turn a different color.
"When we get out of this place, I'm going for steak," Vernon grumbled. "Pet, where's all the food you made for lunch? Surely someone had to have brought something!"
"It's in the doll house," Dudley piped, jerking his head up.
"Our home is not a doll house!" Vernon thundered.
Dudley sighed and brought his head back down, now intent on counting the pieces of lint on the floor.

He started counting the lint for a while until he remembered Harry. Was his cousin all right? Did he reach where he was supposed to go safely? He kept pondering about his cousin until the rumble of Vernon's stomach snapped him into reality.
"Are you sure there's no food back there" Vernon growled, “There ought to be some back there. Dudley check again.”
He could tell his dad was in a mood not to mess with so he checked, making sure to take time but not too much time that it made his dad even grouchier. And after a while he replied,
“No father, all the food is in the doll hou-, er, our family house. Maybe you can ask Mr.Diggle to do some mag-”
“ DON’T SAY THE M WORD DUDLEY” Vernon roared.
He was taken aback by the intensity of his father’s words, and heard his mother let out a small shriek. She of all people didn’t like loud sounds, or anything related to her sister.

Dudley could literally hear Mr. Diggle's frown from his seat in the back. Groaning so quietly that his mother couldn't even hear, and she could hear everything, he hunched down in his heat.
"I know a song that gets on-"
"Dudley."
"Sorry mom."
Dudley sighed to himself, before a thought came to him. He had brought stuff with him to boxing, and his bag was still in the car. It had never gone inside the house, and therefore would not be shrunk. Dudley grinned to himself as he pulled out a fully charged tablet from his bag, unlocked it, and began to play one of the fighting games.

Petunia smiled indulgently in the rear view mirror as she observed Dudley playing on his tablet, she then gave a sideways look at Vernon, who was still grumbling about everything that had just happened. Carefully, she decided to enter into conversation with her nephew to find out the location of their new home.
‘So, Harry, exactly where are we heading towards? You’ll have to tell me, as I’m driving and we’re coming up to the motorway.’
Harry looked at Dedalus Diggle for help in giving his aunt an answer.
‘Take the M25, then the M4 which will take us into London. You can manage that, Mrs Dursley.’
Vernon stopped his complaining, and threw Harry an evil-eyed look. ‘London!?’ He bellowed. ‘What are we going there for?’
Harry sighed, Dudley looked up and smiled, Petunia continued to drive and Dedalus began to whistle, ‘Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner,’ to the annoyance of everyone.

"London? LONDON?" asked Vernon. It wasn't that he disliked the city; he had been there more than a few times in his life. What was worrying him was that if they were going to London, they would be in the car for quite a lot longer, and his stomach was rumbling. "Petunia, pull over in the next village. I REALLY need something to eat. I can feel my blood sugar is getting low, and you know what happens when my blood sugar gets low," he added cryptically.

"What happens?" asked Dedalus Diggle. He had never heard of blood sugar before and he was genuinely curious.

"You don't want to know," replied Petunia. "Believe me, I think that we should stop for something to eat. Ah, look, there's a pub up ahead. Shall we go there for an early lunch?"

"Blood sugar is the number of glucose, or sugar, in a person's bloodstream." Dudley told Dedalus, remembering his Biology lessons. "If it's too low, you can be grumpy, sweaty, and feel lethargic." He cast a side-eye at his father, who seemed to meet some of the criteria. "Wait, if you guys are so smart, why don't you know some of these? It's basic?" Harry replied, "Well, I guess we learn more of the magic things than Muggle science." Dudley nodded, looking over at Dedalus, who seemed to be interested in the whole thing. The pub seemed rather deserted save for an elderly couple and a waitress, who perked up when they walked in.

"Welcome to the Oak Tree, I'm Lisa, your waitress. Here are the menus." After Lisa walked away, Vernon settled down after putting his coat on the coat-rack, plopping down with a large 'oof'. The family took their seats in a booth of three, excluding Harry and Dedalus from their conversation and leaving them to hang around awkwardly. "Away from the riff-raff," Vernon smiled as he perused the menu. Petunia glanced at Harry, nodding towards the two wizards. Dudley walked towards them, gesturing for them to come as he hoisted up two seats. They settled down and smiled at him as they began to flip through the menus.

“I’ll have a Fish and Chips with all the sides possible-” Vernon paused as he glared at the two wizards. “You! What are you two doing here-never mind, and I’ll have a beer too,” he winced, after the manager of the pub glared at him. The food came quickly after that, and Dudley quietly ate his steak, stealing glances at the wizards and his father.

Mr. Diggle tried to start a conversation, but Vernon shut him down quickly, muttering something about riff-raff and freaks. Petunia was sitting silently, hands clasped and salad untouched, so Dudley figured it was up to him to start a conversation.
"So Harry," he said, ignoring his father, who was shooting glares at him, "Do you know what you want to do when you leave school?"
"I'm thinking about something in law enforcement," Harry replied, shooting him a grateful smile. "Like a police officer. What about you?"
"I like history in particular," Dudley said. Vernon coughed from next to him. "But, um, I'm going into business."
"He's going to take over Grunning's!" Vernon said proudly. Harry stifled a grin, covering it up by taking a sip of water.
