Woeful Wizards Chamber of Secrets Episode One

Scene 1

Harry is sitting in his bedroom, writing in a diary. It appears to be night.

Harry: (voiceover accompanied with dramatic music) It is day 73 of my entrapment. As I lie here at night, cold and afraid, I can only just remember that tragic day, day number (long dramatic pause) one.

Flashback to Vernon Dursley from Harry's view

Vernon: Just don't perform magic in front of people and don't tell them that you're a wizard.


Back to Harry in his room.

Harry: (still voiceover) Ever since I put up that banner, "I am a wizard", on my window, I've had a bars attached to it so I cannot leave this hellhole. Uncle Vernon says if I just don't do put the banner up but I cannot, swivel, will not let him restrict my freedom like that. I still can’t get what Dobby told me out of my head though, “Harry Potter mustn’t go back to Hogwarts.” But it’s like the song. I have to.

Ron and the twins appear outside Harry's window. Happy music.

Ron: (s) Harry!

Harry looks around, puzzled.

Ron: (s and yelling) HARRY!

George: (s) He can’t hear you.
