Harry sat in #4 Privit Drive quite bored. To say that he sat in #4 Privit drive, is actually to misspeak. Harry was laying the the flower bed of #4 Privit Drive. Harry was a thin, handsome boy of almost 16 years of age and he was quite unusual. he was unusual for many reasons, one of which was that Harry Potter was a wizard. Another was the scar on his forehead, however, if you are reading this tome you know the reason Harry is unusual. Harry had been having a particularly depressing summer, not that his summers were not normally depressing, but again you know this. Harry had just lost the closest thing to a parent he'd ever had only a few short months ago. he was feeling rather depressed and as usual during his summers, he had no friends around to talk to. That changed when he heard a loud bang in front of the house. He saw a man, bald on top but with gray hair on the sides, and a familiar young girl standing beside the older man. "THIS WAY RADISH!" the older man yelled, and set off for the front door of #4 Privet Drive. The blonde girl skipped along beside the older man until she caught side of a rising Harry from the bushes. "Hello Harry," Luna Lovegood said in her normally dreamy tone. Looking at her gave one the impression she was enjoying music no one else could hear. "Luna... what are you doing here?" he asked. "Looking for Mu," she replied, watching her father examine Harry's front door carefully, as if looking for some meaning in the address posted carefully on the door. "Moo?" Harry asked. "As in cows?" "No," she said, giggling as if he'd just said the silliest thing in the world. "Mu, the lost continent. We found evidence in sweden that the last of the crumple-horned snorkaks had migrated to Mu long ago." "O...kay," Harry said. he'd only know the dotty girl for about a year, but already knew better than to try and dissuade her from her purpose. "Why are you looking for it in my house?" "Oh, is it yours?" she asked happily. "Could you let daddy in to search it?" "Well, not MINE," Harry explained, "I just live there. Um.. It's my uncle's and... you know," Harry smiled getting a mischevious look on his face. "Yeah, I'd be happy to let you two in." Harry quickly opened the door by turning the knob, which for some reason Mr. Lovegood hadn't thought to try. "Of course!" the older man exaulted, charging in with a knobly stick held out in front of him. he swept it this way and that, as if waiting for it to lead them. The Durlseys exploded in rage. Dudley hid in the kitchen as Petunia and Vernon were screaming at the people invading their house. However Mr. Lovegood was not to be detered as he announced loud and clearly, "THAT WAY!" he pointed up stairs and charged forward. Luna swept after her father, waving politely at the Dursleys. Harry, barely containing his laugher, gave the Durlseys a shrug before following Luna and her father up stairs. "AHA!" called Mr. Lovegood, wrenching open the linen closet door. "Thats the linen pantry," Harry said flatly. "Oh Ho Ho!" Mr. Lovegood laughed. "You're right," he said to his daughter. "he is a good one." with that he grabbed a stack of towels from the middle shelf and handed it to Hary. he then crawled into the empty space and dissapeared. Harry dropped the towels. Luna crawled in afterwards, but poked her head back out quickly, "Come on in Harry, it's rather lovely on Mu this time of year." She quickly dissapeared from sight again. Harry just stared, shocked for a moment, looking into the shelf, seeing only the back wall. He felt rather like alice, Mr. Lovegood being his white rabbit. "Why not," he asked before crawling in after them. He suddenly found himself falling into a lovely meadow on a cool sun lit island. Harry stood and gawed a bit. "Damn," cursed Mr. Lovegood. "not a one." the old man snapped his fingers. a creature Harry recognized as a niffler poked its head up from the ground, and quickly dove back in again. He heard a bellow come from a near by forest to, as far as Harry could tell, the east. "How-how?" Harry asked. "Oh, I know because I'm coated in detergent," Mr. Lovegood explained. "Any Snorkaks, especially crumple-horned snorkaks, would have come running in a heartbeat." he turned to his daughter, "Well Cabbage, I'm going to head back home. Gather some supplies and see what I can find in New Jersey." "I don't like the states," Luna thought allowed. "I'm allergic to the minerals they fortify the air with." "Well then," he said. "Why don't you explore Mu a bit, I'm sure your friend here would help you." "Me?" Harry asked. "See, now that that is settled," Mr. Lovegood dove btween some rocks that Harry now realized lead back to the linen closet. "What just happened?" Harry asked. "Oh, Father wants to go find the Snorkaks so much," Luna explained, "that he is going to go somewhere he knows I won't go." "You don't like the states?" he asked, still trying to process everything. "Not the people or anything," she explained as she started walking sout toward a beach. "Its just the Mendeleevium that fortify the air with." "Why do they do that?" Harry asked, knowing that he couldn't even be sure they did do this to begin with. "The crabs make them," Luna explained. Harry nodded, and they sat down on the shores of the lovely beach. "wow," he whispered. "Are we really on this island, Mu?" She nodded. "Oh yes, father was most certain he knew how to get to the island, but wasn't sure the Snorkaks would be here." she shrugged. "fancy a swim?" she asked as she began to shuck off her shirt. "What?" Harry asked, holding on to her arms, however this didn't stop her from having it off her torso, giving Harry a view he had to admit he rather enjoyed. "I want to swim, will you join me?" she clarified. "We don't have swim suits," he pointed out. "So?" she asked, as if he were being trivial. "I prefer to swim naked, feels more natural." she broke away from Harry's hand, heading up the beach to where the meadow made a short ledge where it changed to sand. she set her shirt down and began to take off her skirt. "But... you're a girl, I'm a guy..." he protested. "Honestly, Harry," she rolled her eyes, almost laughing at her Gryffindor friend. "Its not like I'm going to take advantage of you, don't you trust me?" Harry paused, baffled by her comment. He looked out over the ocean. "Besides," she said, a few moments later, strolling past him naked as the day she was born, "If you don't want to be naked, don't be naked. Leave something on. I promise though," she said, turning around and holding up her right hand, utterly seriously. "I won't take advantage of you." as she did this she presented Harry with a full and un obstructed view of her body and Harry couldn't help but notice that she was rather gorgeous. She had a large natural bust, and a narrow waist. such things were always hard to tell through Hogwarts robes. the water did look cool and inviting, especially once Luna and dove in. when she came up her dripping dirty blonde hair appeared as if it were a warm chestnutt. she turned to look at Harry, and he couldn't help but thing she looked like a muggle idea of a mermaid. Harry doffed his shirt. then his pants until he was in just a pair of boxer shorts. he quickly moved into the water and Luna came up and splashed him. Harry had started blushing when she took off her shirt and had yet to stop. He was also rather embarassed at his state of undress. no one, not even his dormmates had seen him in such little clothing. yet as he and Luna swam and played and splashed like young children, harry couldn't help but feel comfortable. Luna would not judge him. She would not have expectations of him, and she would not use him. he also remembered that she had made him feel better after losing Sirius. He realized just how comfortable he was with Luna when he was hit by an especially large wave. he surfaced a bit closer to land and he heard Luna bubble, "Oh, so you decided to go naked to?" Harry looked down and realized the box shorts had come off when he was swept under by the wave. "I'm so glad," she said. Her eyes perused his body and for a moment he was embarassed. "You're much bigger than Cho guessed." Harry blushed again, but it quickly faded when he realized that she wasn't staring at him or bits of him. she had looked, complimented him, and continued in their game. he grabbed the boxers and contimplated putting them on, but decided against it. he laid them out to dry beside their clothes and returned to the water. after another hour of play, they climbed out. "How do we dry ourselves?" Harry asked. "We don't," she explained. "He does." she pointed up at the sun. she laid herself on the beach, and Harry followed suit. after a few moments, Luna announced it was time to turn over. then a little while later she declared them dry. they started to get dressed, but they noticed they were covered in sand. "I'll take care of that," she said, dusting off harry's back. "now me," she said bouncily. Harry nervously dusted off her back, afraid of how low he was allowed to go, given that she was still stark nked. after they were proprly cleaned off they dressed and Luna announced it was time to return to England. They climbed from the linen closet and stood in the hallway. "How are you getting home?" Harry asked, remember vaguely that she lived near Ron. "Oh, I Daddy left me a way," She assured him. "thank you for coming," he told her, putting his hand on her arm, then letting it slip down to her hand. "I was... well I was really lonely." "I hope you don't mind if I come back tomorrow," she said, as if she hadn't heard what he'd said. "More to explore, and I might fancy another swim." "I'd love to have you over again," Harry answered with a warm smile. "thanks," she said. suddenly, before Harry could stop it, she pressed her lips against his and was kissing him passionately. Harry wasn't sure what to do. before he could do anythign she broke the kiss and turned to leave. before she got all the way down the stairs she giggled and turned back to Harry. "Silly me, I broke my promise," she laughed. "What promise?" asked Harry timidly, still dazed from the kiss he had just enjoyed. "I promised I wouldn't take advantage of you."
