Minerva scoffed, “That’s fine. No one will notice a difference.” She commented and the Auror flooed away …
Lyall was focused on the colorful designs on the table in front of him and smiled when he looked up at the clock, “Remus should be at Hogwarts by now.”
“He is.” Lyall jumped and turned to see Gill standing behind him. “Gill! Didn’t you have to meet your colleagues?” He asked as he hugged the Auror. He blushed when he realized he was probably holding on far too long and pulled back. “Sorry.” He murmured and quickly realized he couldn’t actually back away because the table was there.
Gill smiled at the slightly shorter man, “I definitely don’t mind being close.” The werewolf said softly as he leaned forward so far that he could rest his hands on the table. Of course, that action effectively trapped Lyall between those strong arms and brought their faces very close together. “I got everyone together and am waiting for Amber to join them. Since I had time I thought I’d stop by.” He said and leaned even further to nuzzle Lyall’s neck softly. “Are those the designs for the sanctuary?”
Lyall shivered as the wam breath grazed his neck, “Yes.” He murmured in a daze before his eyes widened and he suddenly turned to the table with a look of excitement. “Yes! I took all the ideas they gave me and made some samples for countertops and other things … I’m surprised they asked me to help, but I’ll do what I can.”
“I’m not surprised that they asked. Remus did show them a pensieve, right? They saw what you can do and, like me, they know what they like.” The werewolf said as he wrapped his arms around the slender waist.
For a brief second Gill thought he overstepped. After all, Lyall turned in his grip and put his hands on his chest as if to push the werewolf away. However, those hands didn’t stop there by any means. In fact, Lyall reached up and used his hands to grab the collar of the Auror uniform and pull Gill down a little lower. It was the perfect motion that brought their lips together.
For a moment the werewolf was slightly surprised. However, he quickly returned the kiss and wrapped his arms firmly around Lyall. At some point Lyall’s fingers slid into the blue hair. When the steamy kiss was finally finished they were left breathless.
Lyall jumped slightly and reluctantly pulled away from the warm werewolf when he heard something, “You should go to help your team, right?” He asked when he realized that Gill’s badge was trying to get its owner’s attention with a series of violent wiggles.
“Hmm?” Gill hummed as he fished out his badge. “A little late, but it was worth it.” He said with a grin and gave Lyall a second quick kiss before apparating away.
After a moment of standing there in a daze Lyall touched his lips and smiled, “Yes. It was worth it.” He murmured softly as he turned back to his project on the table feeling much happier suddenly.
Amber turned when she heard someone apparate into the warded off zone on the muggle sidewalk where she waited with three other Aurors, “Never mind. I guess you made progress in something tonight.” She said making the three other Aurors with them chuckle. When she saw Gill her first desire was to scold Gill for being late, but Gill looked so happy that she gave up. “Let’s begin. Which way did she go?”
“I first saw her go this way so I walked with her for about 30-40 minutes.” Gill said as he took off his gloves and turned them inside out, which revealed the red color on the inside. The now red gloves were put back on. “Shall we take a walk?” He asked Amber as he offered her the same gloved hand that Lily held earlier.
“Of course.” Amber said as she accepted the hand and began walking with Lyall. Almost immediately an unseen force seemed to make her head turn to the park. “You must’ve really annoyed her or … no, even for her it wouldn’t be wise to put a potion lab near a park.” She commented as her head was turned to look at Gill and looked away again.
Another Auror pulled out a compass and let it lock on to the direction Amber was looking, “Gill had to stick to the sidewalk though, right?” He asked as they all walked together and kept track of where Amber was looking.
“Yes. I didn’t want to make it too obvious.” Gill said and raised an eyebrow. “She is definitely focused on one particular direction for sure and keeping in mind that she can’t leave a potion brewing too far away we should be able to narrow it down.”
“I have a strong urge to hit you.” Amber commented clearly amused about something as they rounded a corner. “What did you say to her? She was craning her neck then.”
Gill shrugged, “I said she had to get a job.” He commented cheerfully much to everyone’s amusement. “We crossed the road here and continued straight before turning again. Basically I took her in a big ‘C’ shape.” He explained and a few minutes later they came to the spot where he apparated away with Lily. “Has the compass locked down all the angles?” He asked as he let go of Amber’s hand allowing her neck to function on its own accord.
The Auror with the compass nodded, “There are a few angles, but this seems to be the main direction that she focused on.”
As Amber rubbed her sore neck, “Good. Let’s hope you guys can get her scent.”
“Shouldn’t be a problem. Her greenhouse will need ventilation and will be protected from the rain.” Gill said as his colleagues spread out and walked around hoping to catch a whiff of Lily’s scent. After a few minutes a breeze blew a scent to their noses. “I got something.”
Amber watched the four werewolves go to Gill and sniff to hopefully catch the same scent, “Which way?” She asked when she saw them stiffen one at a time as they each found what Gill smelled.
“This way for sure.” One of the other Aurors said as he checked the compass. “It is close to the direction Lily was looking too.”
Gill smiled, “Good thing her subconscious is on our side.” He said as they walked towards the possible hiding spot for a lab.
The second they reached a fence Gill burst out laughing, “And she said I was in a dead end job.”
Amber snorted in amusement before sighing, “How skilled would you say she is with guardian golems?”
“Considering the golem she made in her fireplace she’s, at least, skilled enough.” Gill said as the five stared at the grounds behind the fence, which was that of a cemetery.
One of the other Aurors frowned, “Do you think she’d only use the grounds or the graves themselves?”
“I wouldn’t put anything past her. We should even investigate the bodies themselves.” Gill commented as they used a quick spell to quietly open the gates to the graveyard.
Amber sighed, “Try to narrow down where it’s hidden in the graveyard. Getting permission to dig up a muggle graveyard will take a while so I’ll immediately get the papers filled out.”
“Sounds good. Now everyone be careful.” Gill said as they spread out to search for exactly where Lily’s scent came from Amber began the paperwork for what would be a process that could take a week.
Remus blinked as he stared at the letter he received during his first breakfast of the year in Hogwarts, “I didn’t expect a letter so fast.”
“Who’s it from?” Sirius asked as he grabbed some of the food from platters.
“It’s from my dad.” Remus said right before opening. As he read the letter he realized this was the first time his father contacted him during school. “Ok … it’s vague, but it sounds like he finally made a move with Gill and is asking if I’d be ok with him dating.” He explained feeling very amused by the adorable topic.
Sirius snickered, “It’s about time. From the way you described them I thought something might explode if something didn’t happen soon. Now if only our stag could make some progress.” He muttered under his breath in amusement when he saw James trying to see Severus from their table. Sirius didn’t notice that Remus’ eyes widened as if he remembered something. “He’s fine. Sit and eat.” Sirius exclaimed as he pulled James down onto the bench.
“Don’t worry, James.” Remus said reassuringly as the Potter reluctantly started eating. “Lucius is with him and he needs to eat with the other Slytherins. We’ll walk with Severus to class anyway so relax.”
James sighed, “Yeah. We have potions as our first class, right?… I wonder if Severus will get to brew in class?” He pondered out loud knowing that Severus would like to brew.
“I’m sure he’ll find a way or Professor Slughorn will modify something so Severus won’t have to miss out.” Remus said in between bites of food. “Worse case is that he and I can keep talking about the potion. I have a thought that could help.”
During the last few weeks of summer Remus and Severus have been chatting about the project Severus wanted to complete. It was very interesting to hear the theories. Severus has even been asking his grandfather for advice and the more information it became more of a possibility. Perhaps one day he could change during a full moon and not have pain afterwards.
With that pleasant thought in mind they finished their breakfast. Despite having their new, less trusting, view of their headmaster they listened to the last announcements. Besides informing everyone that Peter Pettigrew was expelled and that there were more St. Mungo’s healers working with Poppy there wasn't much to announce. Everyone was dismissed and told to go to class. However, someone seemed to forget that they had a different schedule.
Lucius stood close to Severus as they went down the halls towards the potions classroom, “Take your time on the steps-“
“James! Severus!” Lucius and Severus immediately stopped and turned. They were slightly surprised to see that James and Sirius were a few feet behind them, but the real problematic thing was Lily. “Please, can’t we talk-“
“Your classes are in a different direction, Ms. Evans.” Lucius said sternly.
Lily winced, “But-
“I finished writing a quick letter to dad-“ Remus started to say as he stepped out of the Great Hall to join his friends.
You might think he let his sentence drop because he was surprised to see Lily. However, that wasn’t the only reason. Lily’s hand shaped monitor definitely sensed that she was too close to the werewolf. She yelped as the monitor pulled her away. It looked like an unseen force wrapped around her ankle monitor and pulled her away. Of course, she tried fighting it, but that only resulted in her falling on her butt and being dragged a few feet away.
A few nearby group of Hufflepuffs looked startled, but decided to step in before the fuming red haired witch made things worse, “Come on, Lily. We can’t be late now.” One Hufflepuff said as she offered a hand to help Lily up.
Sirius smirked as they watched Lily reluctantly leave with the Hufflepuff group, “Can you chase Lily around?” He asked, hoping to see Lily dragged around by her ankle monitor for a while.
“We’re going to be late if I do that … maybe later.” An amused Remus said as they continued on to their own class. “Oh, Severus. Everything has been so crazy that I forgot to mention animagus as a possible factor in your.”
Severus’ eyes widened, “That is ideally how the shift during a full moon could be. If I could talk to an animagus it might help. Do you know anyone who is one? I’d ask Professor McGonagall, but she’s busy during the school year.”
“We do!” Sirius exclaimed quickly, not noticing James slowly turning pale in horror. “If you need someone to go through painful experiments I volunteer Peter. He’s a rat.” Sirius exclaimed again not noticing that James looked relieved that Sirius didn’t blurt anything out.
Severus raised an eyebrow, “Oddly appropriate animagus for him.” He said sarcastically, making Lucius scoff and Remus chuckle.
“Quite.” Lucius murmured not revealing that his mind was going a mile a minute.
Suddenly, everything made sense. He knew exactly why there was that one particular rat in his manor. This also solved the mystery of the third spy Voldemort sent to Hogwarts, which meant Peter was here somewhere. Now he just had to find a moment to report it to Gringotts.
James smiled, “Yep! Hey, Sirius! How about you run ahead and get the tables closest to the door.” He suggested a little too quickly.
“Ok!” A startled Sirius said,not expecting James to ask that so suddenly, but he started walking ahead anyway.
Now Remus was a little curious about why the Potter heir seemed to be kind of pushing Sirius away. The werewolf was even more surprised when James gave him a pleading look. Unfortunately, before Remus could make an excuse to talk to James alone the following happened.
Sirius got past the puzzled Slytherins he smiled at Severus, “Oh, James is a stag and I’m a grim dog so if we can help with the potion we will!” He exclaimed with every intention of being helpful, but he noticed Severus gave an odd look. “You ok?
Instead of just answering Severus slowly turned his head to look at James, who looked very nervous, “Before the summer break started I took a bath outside so I could help Remus without making him sick from the potion residue in my hair … when I was getting out a stag came up behind me and licked my … birthmark.” Severus said bluntly, making Sirius and Remus gape in shock. The werewolf immediately rushed forward and covered Sirius’ mouth to stop him from doing something stupid, like congratulate James or laugh. The Malfoy didn’t seem to be in the mood for any reaction right now.
“Oh really.” Lucius drawled in a dangerously low and threatening tone despite his indifferent expression.
James gulped, “I didn’t mean to! It’s difficult to control your actions in the animal form-“ James pleading was cut off when the Malfoy’s wand basically appeared against his throat since it moved so fast.
“Since Pettigrew isn’t available to help Severus I’m sure you’d volunteer … even if it’s painful and after curfew.” He said with his icy gaze glared holes straight through James.
“Right … understood.” James stuttered and gulped fearfully. He understood the message and they went on their way to class.
Horace Slughorn smiled as his last students arrived, “That was good timing. Now everyone read the instructions on the board and began getting your potion together.” He ordered before going over to the table that Severus and Lucius sat at. “Was there any trouble getting here?”
Severus shook his head, “No, sir, but to be fair it has been a mild day as far as dizziness goes.”
The potion professor nodded in understanding, “When that happens be sure to take your time and don’t worry about being late. As for brewing I want you to work on a different set of things during class. I’ll give you various potions names and you have to tell me each step. Be sure to explain why each step must be done as it is or how you’d do it differently. Hopefully, that’ll provide a bit of a challenge for you since you’re already ahead.” He said cheerfully as he took the summer homework Severus handed him.
“Thank you, Professor Slughorn.” Severus said sincerely and happily tackled the first problem that was given to him.
Lucius smiled at his friend’s enthusiasm, “Since you’re not brewing I’ll get you some water. You need to drink.” He said and pulled out Severus’ shrunken lab bag. He left the room so his magic wouldn’t affect the potions and so he could roll up his sleeve. “Peter Pettigrew is the third Death Eater spy and is a rat animagus.” He whispered into the Gringotts mark, which tingled in response.
After making his report he filled the cup by using a water spell and returned to Severus’ side. Despite having rats, dark lords and horcruxes plaguing his mind he made himself focus on his friend’s health …
