Chapter 25 - Skinwalker’s Moon

*********************************************
“When I was a young boy
The older ones would scare us and talk about things that roamed in the night
Things that wore skins and antlers
Masks that hid their faces.
The Apano, The skin makers

And still to this day some say they have seen these boogie men
These creatures that look like wolves, coyotes, bears and eagles
That walks upright like men and women
They’re still around they say

They’re still around in the panted cave of my memory
And sometimes they appear
In the moon of the man
Skinwalkers kickin up moonlight dust

The beast is on the loose can you sense the desires
The beast is on the loose I can see the village fires
Glowing in the dark of the full moon
Skinwalkers moon just let it rise
Skinwalkers moon just let it rise

Shifting over your eyes tonight
Gypsy girl won’t you dance with me
Dance dance dance across the sky

Chasin the world away into the night
A silhouette of a man held in his right
Just let the moon do what it does
Skinwalkers moon just let it rise
Skinwalkers moon just let it rise

Indian open your eyes
Indian girl won’t you dance with me
Dance dance dance across the sky
Song: Skinwalkers Moon by Robert Mirabel, ‘Painted Caves’ cd
Words from listening to it over and over again (no website involved)

“Would you two stop you’re fighting for once? This is Harry’s birthday and she is here because she’s family.” Severus spat at the arguing couple.

“She is not his family. Not after what she did.” Sirius shouted. “How do you know she’s not going to call all her death-eater friends and kill us before taking the kids?”

“You know I would never do that!”

“Do I really? Look at what you did to Jamie”

Ann Harry and Bria sat under a tree watching the adults fight back and forth, “Some birthday this turned out to be. Why did your dad decide to have it here for all places?” Ann asked.

“Dunno, he said something about a surprise.” Harry replied. “I don’t think any surprise could be worth all this.”

“Are you sure?” a voice asked from behind startling the trio so they jumped to their feet and turned to stare at her then Bria slipped away to join Grandfather whom took charge of barbecuing . “I wouldn’t worry too much about them arguing like that. It’s when they aren’t fighting is when it can be dangerous.” Lily stated with a smile as she looked over at her old friends.

“Holy fuckin shit.” Ann was the first to blurt out.

“Language please Ann Marie.” Lily stated

Severus heard her voice when he turned and started in their direction when Sirius blurted out “Where do you think your going? You invited her here you need to get rid of…Oh Merlin.” then he noticed what was going on.

“Aunt Lily?” Ann asked needing confirmation that she was seeing who she thought she was.

Lilly nodded with a smile as she stared at Harry. “Don’t I get a hug from my birthday boy?”

“I…but you’re…” he stammered

“They’re allowing it this time.” she replied as Severus nudged him forward and she wrapped her arms around him then whispered as she kissed him on the cheek. “No tears today, ok?”

Not wanting to end the embrace Harry merely nodded and hung onto her with all he had until she pulled back. “But how?”

“I have to have some of my secrets don’t I?” she said as she then gave Ann a quick hug “Now you mind telling me who your friend was that disappeared?”

Harry turned to see what she went “Oh, that’s Bria.”

“Why don’t you bring her over here, I’d like to finally meet the girl my son spends his time with.” she stated and Ann pulled him after her to gather Bria while Lily turned to Severus. “Who is she? I could swear I’ve seen her before but older.”

“Her and her mother just moved her last year, she’s Remus’ daughter.”

Lily stared at the couple “She can’t be. He told me that she was loosing the baby, but she looks like her mother did.”

“Lils, what are you talking about?” Severus asked.

“Remus made a pensive when he came back just after Harry was born and asked me to hold onto it until the war was over so that he’d have a way to remember them and go back.” she replied, “Sev, why are you looking at me like that?”

“Where’s the pensive?”

“What do you mean where’s the pensive? If they’re here then he found it and went to get them.”

Severus shook his head, “They just met last year when Albus found her and sent her the letter. Dannie came here to make sure it wasn’t a cruel joke.”

“Wait a second; he said her name was Angel. Who’s Dannie?”

“Her family calls her Angel. Lily, tell me what you did to make him have to have a pensive to remember them.”

Lily tried to change the subject “Where’s Jamie at? I was hoping to see him too.”

“Lillian!”

“I told him I had a bad feeling about it. I mean to Oblivate a memory is risky but he…he promised he’d look into it and go back for her as soon as the war was over.”

Severus just looked at her “I can’t believe you’d go and do something like that. Now I’ll ask again, where did you keep the pensive?”

“It was in my bedroom closet on the top shelf where it’d be safe.” Then she glanced at the remains of the old home “It was destroyed then.”

“Yes it was. He never saw it so he never returned there for them. Now because this was all brought up in court he’s accused her of lying about the whole instance and she refuses to be joined with him.”

Just then Harry arrived back pulling Bria behind him. “Mum, this is Bria.”

Lily looked at the nervous girl “Good to finally be able to meet you.” and she just nodded in return. “I know it seems strange talking to a spirit but…”

“No. I’ve seen mom talking to memaw tons of times. It’s weirder talking to the ghosts at school.”

“I know what you mean, I had problems getting use to that when I first started.” she smiled. “My times about up here. Harry I know what you got from Molly’s boys and I don’t what you trying any of that until you’re older….and definitely out of school.”

“Yes ma’am.” he replied as he started to blush and was squashed in another hug.

She then let go of Harry and gave Bria a quick hug before turning her attention back toward Severus. “I’m truly sorry for any problems I caused, but at the time he was so certain that nothing would have…”

Severus silenced her with a kiss “It’s the past. I’ll make sure he knows.”

“About the past….it’s time you left the past behind and moved on. Don’t glare at me like that; I’m not one of your students. I mean it…you need to be happy.” Severus was speechless and he knew the last thing he wanted to do was to argue with her. She then wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him down for a final kiss only to disappear before he could wrap his arms around her slender body.

Patty was the first to walk up to Severus and put her hand on his shoulder as she tried to hand him a plate of food but he just turned and walked away from the group for some time alone. Harry turned to follow him but Patty stopped him instantly. “He needs some time to himself.”

The boy ignored his aunt and went in search of his father until he found him sitting alone by a small ravine. “Dad?” he asked but there wasn’t a response so he sat beside him and neither one said another word.

A few hours later Sirius found the two “We need to head back, the sun’s starting to set.”

Harry was the first to stand offering his hand to help his dad up and he received another embrace this time from the old man, “Happy Birthday. Now would you care to tell me what it is that the Weasley’s gave you?”

“Nothing special. Just a book.”

“For them to give you a book is not in their nature. What kind of book was it?” Severus asked.

“I’m not sure. I haven’t had a chance to really look at it yet.”

“Title?”

“Karma something-or-other.”

“Wizarding Karma Sutra?” Sirius asked.

“That’s it.”

“You will hand it over as soon as we get back.” his father ordered.

“It’s just a book. There’s nothing dangerous with it.”

“Severus, you have to admit he’s right. There’s nothing at all dangerous about Karma Sutra. If I remember right we all had copies of it when we were younger than him and no harm ever came to any of us.” Sirius stated.

“I’m glad to hear you say that. I was wondering what to give your daughter for her next birthday.” Severus replied.

“I never said…”

“Really? What’s the difference if Harry had one or if Ann does? Besides I wouldn’t doubt if Ron or even that goat boy she was seeing don’t already have copies of it.”

Sirius looked over at his daughter as she stood with Bria and Grandfather waiting for them to return. By the look on his face she could tell he wasn’t happy with her over something but she had no idea what she had done this time. As soon as they were all together the port-keyed back to Hogsmeade and while Grandfather thanked them for the inviting him, Bria went running off toward the forest with Sirius right after her. “Harry, get back…” Severus shouted to the boy who followed them but then the next thing he saw was a pitch black raven soaring through the sky.

“Uncle Sev, did you know that he could…”

“No but trust me, we will be having a long talk about it in the morning.”

*****************************************


You, I remember you. the black wolf thought as she laid on top the old piano staring at Moony. But you smell different. Where is he?

Dannie he though but she just growled in response Angel.

Don’t even mention her again. She went off and left me last night in a dirt tunnel and now in this dump with you. I wouldn’t mind it so much if you‘d at least let him out.

Moony shook his head I can’t let him out.

Why not? it’s only for tonight I know he wants to play as much as I do, his scent is getting stronger.

No I’m not letting him take over. he snarled.

Fine then leave. she then turned around and mumbling something he didn’t quite hear other than something about filthy creatures.

He walked over to the corner and laid down keeping an eye on her the whole time as she started licking her front legs then leaned over as she moved to get her back. He then turned his head so that he wouldn’t see what was next but his eyes kept roaming in her direction and he felt a small whimper escape his throat. Angel paused as she quickly glanced in his direction smiling to herself as she saw him fighting with his other half. She then gradually moved and started cleaning her chest and moving downward as she sensed him moving closer and just as she reached between her hind legs his nose nudged her head away as he tried to finish the task but she then turned over onto her other side. He then put his front legs atop the piano and tried again but she instead jumped down and sauntered to the other side of the room.

Moony glared at his female snarling in her direction before he lunged himself over her and turned before he started growling. Angel hunched down into an attack position growling back then quickly dodged his first attack. The two of them then kept their eyes locked as they circled one another snarling and snapping before he finally lunged again knocking her onto her back. As he stood over her he started to bend down to take her throat in his jaw when she threw him backwards with her hind legs and jumped to her feet again. The two of them continued to chase after each other throughout the old shack when she once again he chased her up the stairs and found her on the piano once again. She scrunched down as he made his way to the centre of the room when she lunged at him. Unfortunately he dodged her this time and as her hind legs hit the floor it broke through. As she struggled to hang on he clamped his jaw around the scruff of her neck, lifted her up and tossed her across the room.

Angel laid there on the floor stunned and trying to regain her senses when she felt his teeth on the back of her neck again as he placed his front paws on either side as he started mounting her, Enough of the games mate. he declared causing her to finally give in and raised her tail as he found his way in causing her to yelp from the intrusion as she tried to pull away. He then wrapped one of his front legs around her to hold her in place as he moved through her until he let out a loud howl in release. When Angel felt his grip loosed she tried to move away but quickly found they were stuck together when he moved with her. She then turned her head to look at him as he licked her snout before nuzzling against her. Exhausted, she laid down carefully while he cradled over her until they were finally separated during their slumber.

**********************************


As the late morning sun shown brightly on the couple Dannie was curled up against the ‘pillow’ and stretched out her legs as she leaned into it suddenly realizing it wasn’t as soft as it should have been. She slowly opened her eyes as she ran her hand across the surface until she felt a nipple and stopped as something from behind moved up her back and caressed her hair just before she felt her forehead kissed and a whispered voice said “Morning love.”

Dannie scrambled to get way from Remus but her leg was tangled in the sheet keeping her within arms length when she turned and stared at his barely covered naked form as the tears threatened to form. With the sudden movement she felt a pain that she knew she definitely didn’t have from the change the previous morning. She stared at Remus as she lost the fight and tears streamed down her cheeks. “No.” she quietly whispered, “Tell me you didn’t.”

“We didn’t.”

“You lying bastard. I’m not stupid, I know what I feel and look at us. If we didn’t then what the fuck did you do to me?” Remus started to speak but she continued. “If you dare try to lie and say Moony did it, I’ll take Bria and leave tomorrow and fuck finishing any contract I have here.”

He wrapped the sheet around his waist as he climbed to his feet and grabbed the folded blanket from the floor before he started walking toward her while she continued to back away. His eyes moved instantly to the hole in the floor just before her foot was coming down on the edge and he reached out and grabbed her arm pulling her into his arms as he dropped the blanket. Dannie looked up at him as she tried to pull out of the embrace but he held tight until he walked them away from it before releasing her and pointed to it. She turned and looked when someone flashed in her mind and she turned her head back to where they were laying. “I know what you’re thinking but I swear he took over last night.”

“It’s not possible. I know you took that potion. I tasted it when you kissed me the other day.”

“Yes I took it and I swear I fought to keep him from coming out but…how do I put this.” he said as he ran his fingers through his hair as he tried to figure out the words to use as she waited more and more impatiently for his response. “Do you remember the last time when I told you that she’d be out to mate?”

“So your going to use that as an excuse? What’d you do? Convince Poppy and everyone else to put me here instead of the cave so that you’d make sure the one she mated with was you?” she asked as she walked to the other side of the room then picked up her shorts and slipped them on.

“No, I would never do anything like that, and you know it.” he replied as he followed after her.

She then picked up her shirt and stared at him “Do I?”

“You should.” he replied as he reached out and took the medicine pouch that hung in the centre of her chest “Tell me, if you really believed that I would go as far as to hurt you by doing something like that then would I be able to hold this right now? I swear to you, finding her here was a huge surprise. I tried to remain in control but when she…you‘ve heard say before that she helps a great deal with keeping him in control. I never imagined that she would affect him so much in other ways.”

“It’s not going to work. I’m not going to stay here all because you and she…” Dannie stopped herself for a second “Just go. Please.”

“No.”

She then ripped the pouch out of his hand and threw her shirt on, “Fine then. I’ll go.”

“Dannie you can’t. You have to stay here one more night and I’m not leaving until you and I get some things straight.”

She lifted her hands in the air “Go right ahead and stay to talk but if I wind up changing and she tears you to shreds then it’s your own damn fault.” then walked over to the piano and jumped up to sit on top of it before folding her arms in font of her chest.

“That’s a chance I’m willing to take but it doesn’t’ mean I won’t haunt you for the rest of your life afterwards.” he replied with a smirk on his face as he walked over and sat down next to her. She instantly scooted away from him but he continued to follow until she was on the edge when he tried taking her hand that was between them but she pulled away. “Since when have you started to hate me so much that you can’t even be near me?”

She looked toward the boarded up window and quietly replied “I don‘t hate you.”

“Then what is it? After everything I’ve said and promised I can understand now why you don’t want to be joined with me but if you don’t hate me…I know I’ve never done anything to make you afraid have I?”

Dannie shook her head, “No you haven’t. It’s me…me and everything that that hem-bitch, her orderlies, and Julian did. Then at the court house when Sirius…” she sighed and glanced up at the ceiling before lowering her head again, “…it’s me.”

“Wait a second here…Julian? As in McNair?” he asked and she nodded “Dannie look at me and tell me he’s not the one….you said nobody…” he said as his voice got louder and she started shaking so he reached out and pulled her toward him trying to calm her down as he whispered softly. “I’m sorry but why’d you tell me that they didn’t…”

“He didn’t…he tried but I fought back as much as I could until Margaret helped.” she said as she sat back up.

He ran his finger along the scars under her eye “Is that when this happened?”

“Yeah. Glad I’m not a guy, then I’d be expected to put paint over them so they’d show when I go back into the circle.”

“With everything that’s happened back there you’re serious about going back?”

“Remus, this was actually going good. We’ve already discussed this. Just because I spend a few nights and mornings in complete utter pain doesn’t mean that I’m going to stay here. Even if I wanted to I don’t have a job or a place to live. All I have here is Bria but back there I have the rest of my family along with everything else I need to survive.”

“You could have that here and more if only you would…”

“No!” she spat as she hopped off the piano and walked to the window. “For a few moments there I actually thought I could go back knowing that we could if not be friends then at least get along. You keep talking like this and not even that will happen.”

“Dannie…”

“I’m serious about this. Why can’t you just stop?”

“Are you as serious about this as you were when you told me that you refused to spend the rest of your life without me?” he asked as he approached her.

Dannie spun around to face him “So we’re going to start throwing words back and forth now? That was said before any of this happened, a full cycle ago. Remember Professor Lupin, I can easily spat words back at you. How about how disgusted you are that I’m the one he chose to fuck? Or here’s one a bit more recent ‘I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t mean it.’ Does that ring a bell?” she asked sarcastically.

“You know that I could never be disgusted by you or anything we did together. There’s only two times I have said that to you and I meant it both times. I swore to you at the court house that nobody would ever hurt you again….myself included. As for when I promised I would return, I truly meant that as well…I wanted to get to know you back then but you know now what I had to return to. It was supposed to only last a few more months not over a year like it did nor did we ever expect to lose Lily like we did.”

“Wait wait wait, when did you…the cabin.” she stammered as she realized what he was saying. “Lily did it, as in Severus’ Lily?”

“Then from the time you walked into my world last year in Diagon Alley I found myself watching you constantly just like I did when back then when you were arguing with Jenny or through the back door of restaurant when your father found out and again through the cabin window when you were with Bobby. Even this morning when you changed in my arms.” he said as he brushed the stray hair from her face to behind her ear before lifting her chin so he could look into her eyes. “Tell me Danielle, do you really want to go back there and merely survive with the pain of changing each and every month or do you want to stay here with me feeling just a little discomfort like this morning every month and live a life I swear I will do everything in my power to give you?”

“I don’t…how did you remember?” she asked “With the spell and everything…wait a second, Bria told you.”

“Does Bria know what your family actually accused you of doing? Does she know she is just as lovely as her mum was that morning, especially when she’s at a loss for words like you are?” he asked and she shook her head. “I never realised how much of my life he knew about but he showed me that day and so much more that I couldn’t have known about.”

Dannie turned back around and stared outside through the wood “I want…no I can’t. I don’t belong here.”

He then held his hand out behind him and summoned the blanket before walking up and placing it over her shoulders while she watched a feather fall to the ground as he kept his hands on her shoulders. “I told you before you don’t belong there either, but with every test we’ve gone through this past year can’t you accept that you belong with me?” he held his breath after the last question as he waited for her response. Finally he felt her relax and lean back against him as he wrapped his arms around her, closed his eyes and he whispered “Thank you” in her ear. He then noticed the feather and bent down to pick it up before holding it out toward her. “I believe this is yours.”

She then turned back around to face him as she lowered his hand “No, not yet it isn’t. I still have a few things to do before our joining.” She replied noticing the confused look on his face. “No more tests for either of us. If you really want to move up the ceremony…”

“Tomorrow then.”

“I didn’t mean that much. There’s still the food and give-a-ways to prepare.”

“Make a list of what needs to be made and I’m sure the house-elves will be happy to finish everything.”

“No. No magic can be used. I have most of the give-a-ways done but…”

“Does Bria know what to do?”

“Yes but…”

“Do you truly want to join with me tomorrow?”

“If it weren’t for all that, I’d join with you right…”

He then leaned down and quieted her with a quick kiss. “Then let her. You’re in no condition to take care of it all right now. You say she’s an adult so let her and her friends do it and meet me tomorrow evening by the cave.”

“I don’t know. I mean after all…”

“What do you mean you don’t know? Dannie, you just promised to join with me and now that I can have everything taken care of for you, your having second thought.”

“Its not that…You say you’ve been watching me…have you at all seen me this past week whenever someone’s around. Hell your best friend walks by and I panic again. What kind of night is that going to be for us?”

“So you’re a bit jumpy. Anyone would be if they were you. If you’re not comfortable, I can gladly wait until you are. Just as long as you’re legally by my side.”

Seeing the sincerity in his eyes she ducked down under his arms and headed down the stairs while Remus felt like he had possibly said too much in trying to express his feelings. She quickly returned with a small book in her hands and a quill between her teeth as she flipped through the pages. When she reached the piano he hopped back on top of it only hesitating when the floor boards creaked. Putting the quill down next to her she said “There’s got to be an empty page in here somewhere.”

Remus recognized the book immediately “Love, where’d you find that?”

“It was under the old couch downstairs. I guess one of the kids who use to live here left it behind.” she replied as she found a blank page and started writing. When she finished she handed it to him and was confused when he started flipping through the previous pages.

“Nobody ever lived here. Just like the willow tree it was put here for me when I started school. You didn’t read any of this did you?”

“Why is this yours?” she asked as he nodded slowly “Glad I didn’t then, otherwise I probably would of gone hunting for any girls you listed in it.”

“No it’s nothing like that. Poppy and Maggie use to give me a few of those at the beginning of each year to help pass the time I was here. There were a few here that I hid so that Albus or Poppy wouldn’t have found out what my friends had done.” he said as he found what he was looking for, “There’s something I want you to see.”

“I can’t”

“Please, I learned so much about that I could never have any doubts about us belonging together. I want…I need to know that you’ll never have any either.” he said as he handed it back to her. “Before you do what was the worse day of your life?”

“The day mama died you know that why?”

“What was the date?”

“May 15 of 72...but what…”

“Just read and you’ll see.”

Dannie snarled in frustration of him being so determined about this and he snarled right back causing her to smile before she started to read the page.

Last night was the Beltane Ball so I had to stay in here by myself. I forgot how painful it is when my friends weren’t around. Lily says it’s cause I trust them and know they actually care about me. It’s strange sounding I know but it makes me wonder what it would be like if I could actually share the night with a mate. Would the pain be completely gone if there was someone I loved and knew could love us?
Keep dreaming Remus. Like anyone would actually love us or even be able to spend just one moon with us.
I tried talking to Sirius about some of it but he turned around and gave me his Karma Sutra book to read saying it was nothing more that hormones and I just needed to get laid. Lot of good that did. I should have known better than to go to him since that’s all that’s been on his mind since he and Pattie got together last summer.
I’ll admit, I looked through the pages and yes I was amazed at all the different erotic positions but there was one that I know truly appealed to him and I was curious….I mean as wonderful as the girls are smelling lately they can’t taste too different from that can they? Wrong! The do…Melissa Stewart; long shapely legs, long light hair, chest I’d gladly suffocate in between and her scent…so flowery and erotic but when James set us up in the Astronomy Tower I tasted her. Nothing like I expected…Bitter as can be, almost like eating a vomit Bernie Bott Bean but then she started moaning my name. Yes my name of all people and her, the way she looked with that perfect…


“Remus what the hell does this have to do with any doubts? I thought you told me there weren’t any names in here.” she said as she threw the book back at him.

“What are you talking about? There’s nobody‘s…

“Melissa Stewart!” she replied and he started looking at the page then the one opposite of it

“No that’s not where I said to read. Here this one right here.” he stated as he walked over and pointed it out and Dannie took it back.

“I there are any other things like that…”

“You have every right to castrate me.” he replied as she started reading again.

Makes me wonder if every female states different and if so will I find one that I could truly enjoy that would return the favour.


Dannie glared at him before she skipped down to the next paragraph.

I’d better close this off, it’s almost time to change again. Hard to believe that it’s been 10 years this month, yes ever since May 16, 72, I’ve been doing this. I just wish that there was a way to make it end. There is some hope….Sev said some of his parents’ associates are working on a cure for this. Only downfall is that it’s Lord Voldemort’s supporters that are doing it so I doubt if I would ever be able to try the treatment because of what I am. Just think of what it would be like when I could spend just one month where I’m not being turned upside down or literally inside out.


Seeing that the entry ended there she closed the book and put it down beside her. “Well?” he asked.

“Well what?”

“Don’t you see it?”

“That you hate what you are? Yes I see it.” Dannie replied

“No, the dates. Both of our lives changed drastically at the same time.”

“Yea, I noticed that.” she stated “How would you describe me in one of your journals?”

“That’s it, you just noticed it?”

“What do you want me to say? That the only reason we’re together is because something horrible happened to each of us at the same time? It may strengthen our connection but I’m sorry this is something that happens all the time….in fact too many times.” she stated then noticed the dumfounded look on his face. “Maybe it’s something romantic in this world to find little things like that. Wouldn’t you rather like to think that we were simply attracted to each other?”

“I would but how could you be attracted to something like him?”

“After reading your description of Miss Stewart…”

“Mrs. Abbott.”

“Although I didn’t need to know that, I could ask the same question. I definitely don’t exactly match up to her in any way or especially form.”

“I wrote that 20 years ago, yes my opinions were different back then. You can’t say you didn’t have your opinion of what you wanted.”

“I did, but mine was for someone like me that I had been convinced never existed. I still want to know how you would have described me in one of those.”

“Just like I want’ to know how you survived having Bria when your doctor said you wouldn’t.”

Dannie shrugged “You asked me to do what I needed to do. When you said you’d be back I was determined that you’d meet her even if we didn’t work out. Not to mention I had to show Jenny and Bobby that she wasn’t what they believed she would be.”

Remus then walked up and separated her legs to stand between them, “If I had returned what do you think our lives would have been like today?”

She shrugged “Dunno. Could have been happy along with more kids, or maybe not. Hard to say, we were both young back then.” she replied as she rested her head against his chest. The two of them remained like that the rest of the afternoon until a loud crash of thunder shook the shack. “You need to go. It’s starting to get late.”

“Hmmm, I know although I don’t want to.” he replied as he tilted her head upward “If only I could stay right like this..” then leaned down and he slowly started kissing her passionately. His tongue brushed against her lips seeking admission as one hand caressed the side of her face up toward her ear and the other one went to the small of her back pulling her as close to him as possible.

As their mouths moved together he slowly moved his hand from her ear down her arm until his finger brushed against her breast causing her to tense up and pull back. Dannie leaned her forehead against his chest as she whispered “I…I’m sorry.”

“You don’t need to be, I’m the one who’s sorry.” he said as he stood there holding her. “I have to leave anyway.” he then took her hands from behind his back and brought them up to his lips kissing them “I’ll see you tomorrow evening…Madame’ Lupin.” then walked over to the stairs.

When he was out of her view she walked over to the window and watched through the boards as he crossed the lawn and passed the fence heading toward town. As she turned and walked over to where the two of them had woken up realization finally hit and for the first time in weeks she truly smiled.

On his way back toward his guardian’s Remus strolled through town smiling at everyone who stopped and looked at him strangely. As soon as he walked in the door to the small shop William slammed the cash register closed and glared at him. “Do you mind telling me where you were all day?”

“I was still at the old shack.”

“This whole time? What would make you stay there all day?”

“I appreciate all that you’ve done for us and I’d like you to be the first to know.” Remus continued to smile as he walked over to the counter. “She has agreed to join with me tomorrow evening.”

William then reached under the counter and pulled out a pair of pants. “Well I don’t need to know how you convinced her to join with you but after finding these out in the yard I can only guess.”

“It wasn’t anything like that, at least it’s not what you’re thinking.”

“Really? Then do tell me where your robes are then.” William stated as Remus looked at himself and noticed he was still wearing nothing but the sheet.
