In my version of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 there was no epilogue, meaning the scene with Harry and his son Albus Severus Potter does not exist. It ends with Harry throwing the Elder Wand off the bridge. Okay, let's do this:

Harry wakes up in the cupboard under the stairs of the Dursley's. A spider slowly spins a web in the top right corner. Harry tries to remember his dream. It was so vivid. He had defeated the evil wizard... what was his name? Was it Voldemort? His dream slowly evaporates from his mind leaving nothing but bits and pieces. It had only been a week since his parents died in a car crash. They had been taken away from him by a drunk driver. The social worker had dropped off the nearly 11 year old Harry at his Aunt and Uncle's house. Harry hated the lot of them. He could not see how his Aunt and his mother could possibly be related. They looked and acted nothing alike! Lilly had always been kind and accepting to everyone, but Petunia was a snob and her husband was even worse! He was a fat, mean man who turned purple, with a vein that looked like it might explode when the social worker dropped Harry off. And their son Dudley was a cruel fat monster. He had already taken a liking to making Harry his punching bag. He also liked reminding Harry that his parents were dead.

"It's too bad you weren't in the car too!" he laughed.

There's a knock on the front door that snaps Harry back to reality.

"HAAAARRY POTTERRRR!" Uncle Vernon roars.

Harry groans and rolls out of his bed, opens the cupboard door and slinks toward the front door. He pulls it open and is startled by the man who stands in front of him. He is massive, at least eight feet tall, and he has an equally shocking beard.

"The names Rubeus Hagrid," the man grumbles holding out a massive hand for Harry to shake.

Harry cannot move. His mouth is hanging open and he can't stop staring at the man. Hagrid chuckles.

"I have a little something for 'ye" he says holding out a box. Harry opens it and sees a cake with 'Happee Birthdae Harry' written on it.

"Er, thank you," says Harry closing the box.

"What in the bloody hell is this!" cries Vernon rushing to the door.

Hagrid looks down, unimpressed by the fat man standing below him.

"I was just dropping something off for Mr. Potter," he says handing Harry a letter.

Harry sets the cake down and reads the letter aloud.

"Dear Mr. Potter, we are happy to inform you that you have been invited to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." He looks up shocked at Hagrid's big smile.

"HE WILL NOT BE GOING!" Vernon cries.

"I suppose a big muggle like yourself is gonna stop him," says Hagrid mockingly

Harry doesn't feel the need to ask what this word means. He already knows from his dream.

"I've been sent here by a friend of your parents. I'm sure you know Sirius Black. He let me borrow his motorcycle," says Hagrid motioning to the motorcycle outside.

"Is Sirius... I mean... is he a wizard, too?"

"Of course! He'll answer all your questions when you see him. Unless you'd rather stay here of course?"

Harry rushes after Hagrid without looking back.

Hagrid takes him for a ride on his flying motorcycle. Harry loves flying, and he feels happy for the first time since he lost his parents.

They stop at 12 Grimmauld Place and Harry sees a man with long curly black hair waiting outside. He smiles at Harry although he looks sad.

"Hi Harry, it's been a long time. You've grown so much." He pushes Harry's hair back affectionately. "You still have your mother's eyes. It's funny. I used to be so close to your mum and dad...before the dark times. Come inside. We need to talk."

A house elf named Kreacher serves them while grumbling about how Sirius is a blood traitor. Sirius ignores him.

"Were my mum and dad... were they..."

"They were Wizards Harry. They went into hiding under the advisement of Albus Dumbledore. A dark wizard named Voldemort was looking for you, but instead went after another boy named Neville Longbottom. Voldemort tried to kill Neville but his attack backfired. Dumbledore feared that even after Voldemort's demise one of his Death Eaters, Bellatrix Lestrange, was still after your parents. A man we all thought was our friend, a man named Peter Pettigrew ,betrayed your parents. They only narrowly escaped Bellatrix and a group of Death Eaters. After that Dumbledore asked your parents to have no more contact with the wizarding world for your safety and they obliged."

Harry stays with Sirius over the next few weeks. He takes Harry shopping in Diagon Alley, buys him all his books, and lets him pick out a snowy white owl. He also buys him a brand new Nimbus 2000 broomstick!

"I'll be needing a wand" says Harry looking at the list.

Sirius hands him a long rectangular box. Harry opens it and finds a wand inside. "It was your father's wand Harry. I think he would have wanted you to have it."

On September 1st, 10:55 AM, Sirius takes Harry through the brick wall to Platform Nine and Three Quarters. Harry finds he likes Sirius a lot and is sad to see him fade into the distance as the train pulls away. Harry begins to walk through the Hogwarts express when he hears a whisper. "That's him, that's Neville Longbottom!" He turns and sees a pudgy boy chase a toad into a train car with a red headed boy already seated inside. Harry decides to join them. He hears the red headed boy say "Do you really have... a... a..."

"Oh the scar," says Neville lifting his hair and showing off his lightning bolt scar.
