Back to Being a Baby: Chapter 1-Convincing Remus

Hogwarts castle was a large proud edifice that was hidden away from the wandering eyes of any Muggle who tried to see past its secrets. Hogwarts served many purposes: a school for gifted young witches and wizards, an office for its teachers, and a sort of surrogate home for those who felt as if they were unwanted or as if they did not belong in the place in which they presently resided. And though Hogwarts usually overflowed with students and teachers, at the present day and time only a handful of teachers remained and all the students were at their respective homes for the summer holidays.

Now, most of the teachers were gone as well, yet the Headmaster Albus Dumbledore was currently having a very important conversation in his office with one; Remus Lupin.

"Dumbledore." Remus said with a shake of his head. "We can't! Harry would explode if you even suggested it."

"Perhaps." Dumbledore agreed calmly. "That is why I would like you to be here when I ask him."

"What do you need me here for?" Demanded Remus perhaps a little rudely.

"Harry is angry with me, which is understandable." Dumbledore responded. "His aggravation makes him unable to listen to reason. If someone else were with us when we talked, Mr. Potter would be more likely to keep his temper more calmly in place." Remuse was quiet for a moment then heaving a sigh he said.

"Alright. Let's say that I agree. You at least owe me an explanation as to why you want to de-age Harry."

"That is fair enough." Dumbledore agreed. Dumbledore thought for a moment, trying to think of the best way to phrase what he was about to say. "Mr. Potter," Dumbledore begin. "Did not have a very good childhood. It is my hope to give him some of his childhood back, but I also which to give him someone who will take care of him unlike his aunt and uncle."

"Alright. I can say see that that's very good, but why do you want to de-age him? What-

"Remus, has Harry talked to you about Sirius?" Dumbledore asked cutting Remus off. Remus face immediately clouded over to be replaced with a grim expression.

"No." Remus said his voice slightly thick. Remus cleared his throat. "No, no he hasn't."

"Exactly Remus!" Dumbledore exclaimed. "Don't you see? Though Harry has lost his father figure he has not expressed the way he feels to anyone, not Mr. Weasly or Miss. Granger or myself. You know very well that for a person to do that is not healthy." Dumbledore stopped allowing what he had said to sink in. Remuse turned away from Dumbledore gazing fixedly out the window.

"Alright." Remus said at last looking at Dumbledore again. "I'll do what ever I can to help." Dumbledore gave Remus a small smile.

"Thank you Remus. Would you go get Harry right now?"

"Yes of course." Remus said standing up and touching the port key Dumbledore handed to him. A second later he was gone.
