Warnings: Slash between Sirius/Remus, swearing, and slightly AU.
Summary: When hit by the killing curse, Harry is blinded by the bright green light. Being blind and raised by Sirius and Remus isn't easy.
Notes: It has been a long time since this has been updated. I suppose that this is the time for it to be continued. So anyway, I hate to admit it but I am slightly tired of my 'Which One is Mommy, so that one will be longer to update than any other. About my long absence…I am obsessed with Harvest Moon, girl version. My Cliff is my little baby and I love him to death. Anyone who plays the game will understand.
Gaspeth! On with the story! LAST CHAPTER! YOU SHALL SEE WHY!
He hadn't dreamed often, in fact since the love of his life had been taken away he would hardly sleep. The young man opened his eyes, taking in his surroundings slowly and carefully, taking in the plain white wallpaper with disinterest. I'm at home he thought tiredly. Sitting up, he brushed his light brown bangs out of his golden flecked eyes. Stretching he winced at the pain on his stomach, where the fresh burn was.
"Remus, are you awake yet?" A voice asked from the doorway. Remus, the young werewolf in question, looked over at his lover, Sirius Black. Nodding he laid back down on the bed, feeling a headache coming on. A slight decline on the bed caused him to look over in confusion, seeing Sirius lay right next to him, smiling. Remus nodded at him in reply, sort of in a shaky way, but looked back up at the ceiling.
"I thought I was at the Ministry Siri," he commented dryly. Sirius' grin widened.
"You passed out, but guess what! I caught Peter! I'm free! He was at the Ministry can you believe that? He was in the stupidest place ever!" Sirius laughed, allowing Remus a soft chuckle. A few moments of silence had gone by before Remus felt a sharp tug, bringing him closer to Sirius. Soft amber eyes looked up, searching his lovers face.
"Siri, I didn't want to tell you but- well, you see, I sort of lied when I told you there was only one condition to setting you free," Remus said softly. Sirius remained silent, though his left eye did twitch a bit. Sirius Black hated being lied to. "For a couple weeks I have to be a sort of 'test subject' for the Ministry…they want to test different potions." Sirius gave a sharp yelp of rage, jumping up from the bed and looking down at the startled man.
"Test subject! What the fuck does that mean Remus? Test subject!" He yelled, throwing the bedside clock at the wall, shattering it to pieces. Remus flinched in fear, though kept a strait face. "I'm not worth that Remus! You should have left my ass in that god forsaken hellhole!"
"Oh shut your mouth Sirius, you know for a fact that I would jump off a cliff for you," Remus said smoothly, trying to analyze an escape route to the argument. Sirius' growls became much more noticeable with the passing seconds. Slamming his fist into the wall he snarled.
"If you do that Remus, then why am I even bothering to protect you?" Sirius asked, his face going red from more anger building up. Remus sighed, standing up and rubbing his stomach, where the burn was.
"I think you know that answer Sirius," Remus said with a small smile. "Now I'm going to get Harry, do you want to come?"
"Yes," the other man replied simply.
"Do you promise to calm down?" Remus asked again. Sirius nodded, bringing his fist out of the wall and bringing it to his mouth, licking the soft flesh. Remus found no disgust in that seeing as he to had uncontrollable canine habits. Sirius looked up, smiling apologetically at his lover.
"Hey Remus, didn't I promise we would get married once we had a kid?" Sirius recalled softly. Remus blushed, nodding in reply.
"Yes, I remember, but Harry isn't- well Harry isn't our child," Remus said softly. Sirius grinned, grabbing Remus and rubbing at the burn gently, causing delighted shivers to run through Remus' body. Sirius smirked kissing the younger man's neck seductively.
"I know, but it gives me the opportunity to marry that sexy butt of yours," he growled in delight. Remus blushed, pulling away and walking towards the door.
"A-as much as I would love to stay a-and chat, we have to get Harry," he said stiffly, trying to keep the tremor out as much as possible. Sirius grinned, showing all of his teeth. Nodding he ran out the door in front of Remus, ready to use his very much loved motor bike.
Dumbledore paused in his work to watch the little boy bounce happily, feeling at the toy in his hands experimentally. The man chuckled, walking over and picking up the boy, setting him on his lap when he sat back down in his large chair. Harry's dull green eyes seemed to shine in confusion, but he smiled and started playing with Dumbledore's beard. Chuckling he looked up when the door opened and Remus and Sirius came in.
"Did it go badly Remus, the sealing?" Dumbledore asked his worry increasing. Sirius shook his head, and Remus did the same, walking over and taking Harry from Dumbledore. Harry froze at first, but a soft word from Remus immediately calmed him down, recognizing his voice easily. Sirius sat down in front of Dumbledore, grabbing the paperwork on the desk with interest.
"You completed the paperwork for Harry's custody already? Wow! Albus you truly are the greatest wizard ever!" Sirius exclaimed, flipping through the papers with excitement. Dumbledore couldn't help but smile at the man's mood; he had missed Sirius Black when he and the Marauders graduated.
"Just get the Dursley's to sign them and send it through to Fudge, which I'm sure he wouldn't disagree with this," there was a definite threat in there, one which Sirius, Remus, and even Harry understood.
"I'm going to take Harry out for some fresh air," Remus said suddenly. The other two nodded, getting back into normal conversation again about the custody battle. Remus rolled his eyes, walking outside of the office and down the silent halls, looking at the many portraits he passed. Harry gurgled happily, shifting slightly in his protector's grasp.
"I bet you can pinpoint where voices come from," Remus said softly, chuckling slightly as Harry looked directly at him with a smile. "Can you say Harry?"
A few moments of useless gurgles.
"Come on Harry, you can do it, say Harry," Remus pushed.
"Hawwy," he stuttered, his small face bunching together in "deep" concentration. Remus smiled, kissing his forehead in a comforting manner before walking outside the castle, enjoying the soft bite in the wind. Harry sighed contentedly, snuggling closer. The young werewolf sat down next to the infamous tree he and his friends would escape too more often than not.
The breeze blew by slightly, ruffling Remus' light brown hair. Looking over he caught sight of a man coming towards the castle, watching in curiosity as he walked up to the castle, touched the outside walls briefly before shaking his head. Looking over he seemed to catch sight of Remus and he walked over.
"Who might you be?" He asked. Remus blanched at the rudeness.
"Who are you?" He shot back. The man chuckled, leaning against the tree in a pompous manner, fingering a silver badge in his belt.
"Cail Deregnis, I am a professional werewolf hunter," he said. Remus flinched slightly, though it seemed to go unnoticed by the strange –and now enemy like- man. "I can tell a werewolf from a normal human just by looking at them." Harry even cocked his head to the side as Remus held back an urge to snort.
"How can you tell?" Remus asked. Cail tapped his head lightly.
"Well, they have sharp claws that are constantly covered in blood," he said, and Remus glanced at his nails in fake wonder. "They are slumped over in an ugly form," –Remus gave a mental image of Fudge- "their noses are curled up and they are always sniffing," –Remus briefly touched his nose, wondering if his was like that- "and, despite all of this, they have the sexiest bodies, usually male."
Remus blinked, having an even harder urge not to laugh.
"What do you think?" Cail asked excitedly. Remus grinned.
"I think you know your werewolves," Remus encouraged dryly, just praying that the curious man would go away. Something about him seemed very false, even Harry naturally sensed that. A slight sniff gave him his answer; this man was a fake, and definitely knew who Remus was, because whoever it was had the stench of Polyjuice potion all over him. He had to leave, that was the safest answer.
"So, what is your name stranger?" Cail asked. Remus stood up, clutching Harry close.
"I don't think I know you well enough to give that information out," he responded. Damn his curiosity, he wanted to know who this person was.
"We talked, now tell me," he laughed. "You act like you have this…furry little problem." Remus' eyes widened ever so slightly, though the stranger didn't seem to notice. It can't be James; he's dead Remus thought harshly. Harry glanced up at Remus, a small smile creeping up on his face.
"Not James," he whispered. Cail frowned.
"Hey, what's wrong with me?" He demanded, his face slowly forming into his best friend. Remus gasped, stumbling back, though losing his balance in the process he fell over, hitting his head on something very hard, and he knew no more.
"I think I scared him."
"He suddenly jumped back when he saw you, wonder what it was."
"All I was doing was talking about his fury little problem."
"Well it freaked him out!"
"He hit his head pretty hard though…"
Remus clamped his eyes down even further, reaching a hand up to clutch at the ache in his head. Opening his eyes slowly, he realized that his vision was very blurry. Blinking a couple times he was shocked to see that Lily, James, Sirius, and even Peter were gathered by his bed.
"What happened? Where am I?" He asked, looking around to see that he was in the hospital wing, in one of the beds.
"You freaked out in class after you fell asleep babe," Sirius said softly. "You jumped back from James and ended up hurting yourself. Way to go James." The last part was added to annoy the already livid young man. James sniffed loudly, turning his nose in the air out of anger.
"I had a really strange dream," Remus whispered.
"But you never dream Remus, you told us that," Lily said softly. That was what he said in his dream. Remus shook his head.
"I can't explain it, in fact, I can't even remember it," he said softly, holding his head lightly. Lily and Sirius immediately looked worried. "James and Lily were dead, had one son and he was blind, Sirius was in Azkaban, and I was –I don't know."
"Maybe it was a premonition," Lily whispered. Sirius didn't laugh at that ridiculous idea at all, in fact he embraced it.
"Maybe it has something to do with my bad feeling," Sirius said.
"We are going to be leaving next week for good, graduating," James put in. Lily hugged Remus tightly.
"It was just a dream," she said softly, ignoring her own fears.
"Just a dream," Remus repeated.
So then why did it feel so real?
That was it, thank you for reviewing my friends. You hate me now…
