Harry's Escape is the first moment of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Chapter 3, The Burrow.


Harry tore back across the room as the landing light clicked on. He snatched up Hedwig’s cage, dashed to the window and passed it out to Ron. He was scrambling back onto the chest of drawers when Uncle Vernon hammered on the unlocked door — and it crashed open.
