Harry landed on the ground with a bone-breaking thud. His breath was knocked from his chest, and he fell to his knees in front of the gates of Malfoy Manor. He was so tired. He didn't know what was wrong with him, but he was exhausted.

He took a deep shaky breath and pushed himself to his feet. His steps were unsteady to start with, but grew stronger with each one. The gates opened for him, recognizing the blood of it's founders.

Thoughts were racing through his mind as he walked. How many had Dumbledore gotten to? He had been in a position of tremendous power for a century. How many were forced to betray their loved ones, because of an Unbreakable Vow made in good faith?

Harry nearly gagged, the taste of Remus' blood still in his mouth. Bloods from wounds he had made. Made in uncontrolled rage and fury. Hadn't life taught him by now that he should never act too rashly? Though, he supposed being in the hospital put Remus out of Dumbledore's chess games. He was a broken pawn now. That was all he was to Dumbledore. To Harry, he was family.

He could see that the pack was spread out on the neatly manicured lawns. Lucius was probably having a fit. Harry shuddered to even think about the house-elves. Fickle creatures they were.

He walked slowly up to the, shielding his face from the sun, so that he would not be blinded; a maneuver that came a second too late as he was tackled to the ground by a flurry of dark hair. Nicko had wrapped around his legs, rendering him immobile.

"Daddy!" Nicko squealed.

Harry chuckled as he tumbled with the cub, his energy given a boost by the hyperactive fur-ball.

Fenrir chuckled at the sight of his husband and his cub, entangled on the green grass. He had not been missing company these past few days, but he had missed Harry something bad.

"Fenrir." |Harry called when he finally untangled himself from the cub, whom was now riding on his back. "I'm so glad to see you're alright," he smiled brightly.

Despite the supernova grin, Fenrir could see the dark circles around his eyes, dulling the usually vibrant green.

"I missed you too." Fenrir replied and kissed Harry soundly on the lips. Harry moaned deep in his throat. He had nearly gone insane away from his love.

Nicko slid off his fathers back with a wrinkled nose. Kissing; youck!

Fenrir chuckled at the disgruntled expression on the boy's face, "One day you will do that too."

"No way!" he exclaimed.

"The day might come sooner as you think." Harry said with a smirk as he pointed at one of the female cub batting her lashes at Nicko. Nicko ran towards the cubs, but was tackled to the ground by the girl and kissed sloppily on the cheek.

Harry laughed heartily as Nicko squirmed under the amorous assault. He plopped down on the ground next to Fenrir and the pack, feeling truly how tired he was. Fenrir sensed his husband's exhaustion and curled against his side. Harry morphed into his wolf form and let his mate burrow into his inky black fur.
