They were all to be punished for losing him again. The Malfoys were in the biggest trouble out of all of them. He had just arrived seconds ago and Bellatrix was already groveling at his feet ever since. Greyback was pulled out of his thoughts by the sound of the icy high pitched voice of his master.
"Don't think you will go unpunished either Greyback," the Dark Lord said.
He hated being submissive to this thing he was to call his master and lord. Greyback knew what was to happen next; he would be tortured and if he was lucky only a few members of his pack would be killed this time.
Without delay, he was tortured with a Cruciatus Curse which had been aimed directly at his chest. He could feel the familiar pain of thousands of knives entering his body but wouldn't give him the satisfaction of making a sound. He could take the pain.
The curse was coming in waves which seemed to feed off of the Dark Lord's rage and lasted about three minutes. Greyback was hit with the curse three more times before He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named turned his attention to Bellatrix. Trying to ignore the pain, he listened to the conversation.
"Did they have the sword with them? How did they get it from your vault? You were supposed to keep it safe!"
"I tried to interrogate the Mudblood my Lord. She claims they didn't take it from my vault," Bellatrix whimpered.
"You believed the words of a Mudblood?" said the Dark Lord mockingly.
"No! No my Lord, I only-"
"Stop blubbering. The fact remains that you all lost me Potter once again," He said interrupting her.
Greyback returned to his pack to find 11 dead and four more wounded. Those that had been killed were four men, three men, and four children. He knew that some of his pack would be hurt but he didn't think it would be that many. Standing amongst the bodies of his dead pack members, thoughts began to run through his mind.
He realized that when the Dark Lord had first been fooled by Potter when he was a child, his pack was overflowing. He was able to recruit more people to his cause when there was no fear of punishment.
"I think it's time for a change. I need to do what's right by my pack. I need these mutts to trust me and if I ever want to use them take over the wizarding community I'm going to need them on my side. If this keeps up then they'll all start to leave," mused Greyback.
Potterwatch was a success. Remus couldn't believe how ingenious these kids could be sometimes. Lee Jordan was their official host but the radio show was a Weasley creation. If they were lucky Kingsley would be able to participate. The only problem was that they were constantly on the move and for the past couple of days he had been feeling as if they were being followed.
The scent he had been tracking was familiar enough to know he's been around it before but not enough to recognize who it belonged to. After the third day, he was becoming increasingly more nervous and told his group they needed to relocate. Trusting Remus' instincts, the group packed their belongings and moved to another area just before nighttime.
Feeling slightly more at ease, Remus went to his tent and cast a warming charm to his cot and started to fall asleep. Two hours later, Remus awoke when the scent returned to the area. Being closer than it had ever been, Remus was able to recognize it right away as Fenrir Greyback.
The knot in his stomach began growing as he was able to pin-point Greyback close to his tent. Grabbing his wand out of his pant pocket, he silently cast Homenum Reveliobut when nothing was revealed he cursed at himself under his breath.
"Of course it didn't reveal him. He's about as close to an animal as it gets," thought Remus.
Before Remus could even move his legs, the flap to Remus' tent was opened and in popped Greyback.
"Hello, Remus," he said with his pointed teeth showing, "I've come to make a proposition to you."
"What the bloody hell do you mean he wants to join the Order?"
"Molly dear, please calm down."
"No, I will not calm down...this is absolutely RIDICULOUS!"
Ron stood in the hallway listening to his mother scream at the top of her lungs regretting his decision to leave Harry and Hermione with every second that passed.
"Poor Dad. She never lets him get a word in edge wise," thought Ron.
It had been only a couple of days now since he left his friends but he knew how to find them now with the help of the Dilluminator. He had everything packed and planned on ditching his family once again in search for his friends.
"I know it's hard to believe Molly but Greyback seemed genuine. Besides, if what he says is true, he would be able to help out the Order a great deal by turning into a spy," said Remus.
"Fine. Fine! Let him in then. But I refuse to cook for that man," said Molly Weasley in a rushed tone.
Ron could hear his mother's footsteps coming towards the kitchen door and made a run for it to his room. He couldn't believe what he had just heard. The Order was recruiting Fenrir Greyback in order to spy on You-Know-Who? Wait until Harry and Hermione hear this one.
Hermione hadn't felt this depressed since the day that Ron left them. Godric's Hollow was a complete waste of time and Harry was as reclusive as ever. She felt utterly alone as she lay in bed trying to fall asleep. Hermione's body was exhausted from the fight with Nagini the night before but no matter what she did she could not go to sleep.
"Hermione! Come here," she heard Harry call her to her.
Getting out of her cot, she looked around the tent and when she didn't see Harry, she walked to the opening of the tent and saw him standing there with Ron of all people.
Ron stood there looking rather timid at first but then straightened his spine and said, "Hey," confidently.
She couldn't control her legs. As soon as that word left his mouth she was moving and before she knew it she was hitting him several times on his shoulder.
"Hey! You desert us and all you can manage to say is 'HEY'," Hermione screamed.
"I wanted to come back as soon as I apparated but the only problem was I didn't know where you guys were. I went back home and that's when it hit me. The Dilluminator. I could use it to find you guys. Dumbledore gave it to me for a reason. It doesn't just turn off lights. I don't know how it works but on Christmas morning, I was sleeping in this little pub, keeping away from some Snatchers, and I heard it. A voice. Your voice, Hermione. You said my name. Just my name. Like a whisper. So I took it, clicked it and this tiny ball of light appeared. And I knew it. It flew towards me, the ball of light, right through my chest and straight through me. Right here," he said pointing to his heart, "and I knew it was going to take me where I needed to go."
Hermione didn't know what to say...she just looked at him breathlessly for a couple of seconds.
"This doesn't change anything," she said while grabbing Griffindor's Sword from him and walking back to the tent.
Things were starting to get back to normal in their camp. Hermione was trying her best to deal with Ron but she didn't know what to say exactly. She was flattered at the thought of Ron coming back to them because he wanted to be around her but he could be infuriating at times.
Ron was currently telling them a story about how the members of the Order were considering turning Fenrir Greyback spy as a last ditch effort to gain information on You-Know-Who. Personally, Hermione thought it would be a big mistake to allow someone with a reputation for mailing women and children in order to inspire fear in the hearts of You-Know-Who's enemies.
There was no way to know for sure if the Order went through with the idea because Ron left before he could find out more. Hermione didn't have much time to dwell on that now because she was packing for their trip to Xenophilius Lovegood's home.
Apparently, Harry had remembered that Mr. Lovegood had the symbol of the Deathly Hallows on his necklace during Bill and Fleur's weeding. They were going to see if he could give them any information that might help them in their quest for the Hallows.
"Hopefully this won't be another Godric's Hollow," she thought just before apparating with Harry and Ron.
I finally got this story going! I've been trying to come with a solid plot and here it is.
This story, unlike 'Hello Beautiful" is going to follow the book more closely in order for Fenrir to be the leader of the Snatchers.
When Remus tried casting "Homenum Revelio" I figured it most likely wouldn't reveal Greyback because of how feral he had become since he had fully embraced the werewolf inside.
The pair will meet in the next chapter and will progress slowly from there. Keyword...slowly. LOL
Don't worry though! There will be lemons and...other...stuff. :P
What did you think? I'd love to hear your opinion even if it's negative so get to reviewing people!
