Chap 9

- George POV -

I walked into the Burrow and instantly knew something was off. The house was far too quiet for my liking. I pulled out my wand and crept slowly through the house. I heard voices coming from the unused upstairs drawing room. I snuck up there and looked through the slightly opened door.

"Is it ready yet mum?" my little sister asked. Mum was standing in front of a cauldron with Ginny and Ron standing beside her. I lowered my wand and almost walked into the room but stopped when mum moved away from the cauldron. The unmistakable spiral smoke coming from the potion had me silently gaping. Mum was brewing a love potion for Ron and Ginny.

"Yes my darling. And now that I have the information needed, we can go collect Harry and Hermione and bring them home to where they belong," Mum said and I watched as my brother and sister laughed evilly.

I quickly raced downstairs and outside so I could apparate without being heard. I apparated straight to my brother's living room where I knew nearly everyone to be.

"George honey. What's wrong?" Katie asked me. My brothers and father stood as did Remus and my gaze fixated on him.

"Remus, you need to tell Sirius to move Harry and Hermione now!" I panted out.

"George what are you talking about? They are fine where they are," Remus asked as he moved over to me. "Wait, how did you know I knew where they were?"

"No they aren't. They are in trouble," I said. "Mum, Ron and Ginny know where they are and mum's brewing a love potion."

Everyone gasped and looked at me.

"I went to the Burrow and the house was quiet. I walked upstairs and saw mum, Ron and Ginny standing in front of a potion. The potion had spiralling smoke coming from it and then mum said that she had the information needed to go collect Harry and Hermione," I said. Remus started growling and grabbed his mirror.

"Sirius Black," he growled into it.

"Well hello Moony my friend. How can I help?" Sirius asked as his face came into the mirror.

"Sirius, where are the kids?" Remus all but yelled.

"They're at Sam's place. Moony, what's wrong?" Sirius asked.

"Molly knows where you guys are. She's brewing a love potion and plans to use it on them," Remus said.

"Thanks mate. I'll go get them. If that bitch comes near my kids I'm going to rip her limb from fucking limb," Sirius hissed out before he hung up the mirror.

"Sirius will keep them as safe as possible but we all need to help," Remus said. We all nodded and started devising a way to keep Harry and Hermione safe.

- Hermione POV -

I was sitting cuddled into Paul's side as I spoke to Emily when the front door burst open and dad raced into the kitchen.

"Sirius, are you ok?" Billy asked. Sirius' gaze roamed around the room until it fixed on me.

"Snowflake, where's Harry?" he asked desperately. I stood up and moved over to him.

"He and Leah are at her house helping Sue. Dad, what's happened?" I asked him.

"We've been found," he said and I instantly felt nauseous. I felt the blood rush away from my face as I looked up at him.

"How?" I asked shakily.

"I don't know baby but we need to get Harry," dad said.

"I'll call Leah," I said. I pulled out my phone and rang my friend.

"Hey Mione," Leah said.

"Lee, is Harry with you?" I asked.

"Yea, standing right beside me," Leah answered.

"Tell him we've been found. Can you guys get to Sam's quickly?" I asked. Leah relayed my message and I heard Harry say something to her.

"We'll be right there," she said.

I hung up the phone and looked at my father.

"Sirius, what's happened?" Billy asked.

"Someone is going to try and take the kids away and force them into marriage," dad said. I heard Paul growl and soon felt his arms wrap around me.

"We don't live in the Victorian era!" Josie hissed out and the other girls nodded.

"How can we help?" Sam asked.

"Don't let either of them out of sight. This woman will stop at nothing," dad said.

"We'll keep them safe," Jake said and I felt Paul kiss my neck. The front door opened again. Harry and Leah raced into the kitchen and Harry walked towards us.

"Never going to happen," Harry bit out when Sirius had explained what happened to him.

"Agreed. I rejected that prick for a reason," I said and Paul squeezed my stomach.

"Snowflake, let's go run," Harry said. I knew he needed to run so I nodded.

"I'll take you," Sirius said. He understood Harry's double meaning and nodded. Harry kissed Leah quickly and followed dad outside.

"You ok?" Paul asked as I turned in his arms. I nodded and kissed him on the mouth gently. "I'll come over later."

I nodded and waved to everyone before walking out of the room. Harry, Sirius and I walked halfway home before we walked into the woods and phased. I took off running with the guys following. We ran for maybe two hours before heading home. When we arrived home, I raced upstairs and jumped into the shower quickly. I slowly washed my hair and body as I thought about the Weasley family. I was slightly afraid but I wouldn't admit that to anyone. I dried myself off and wrapped my towel around my body. I walked into my room and let out a short scream when I saw a figure sitting on my bed.

"Sorry beautiful," Paul said with a smile on his face. He walked over to me and kissed me gently. "I just wanted to check up on you."

"That's sweet of you. I'm fine," I answered. I moved past him and walked over to my wardrobe. I slipped my underwear on under my towel before dropping the towel and grabbing out some clothes. I dressed and moved over to the bed. I smiled at Paul as he lay down behind me and pulled me into his embrace. I cuddled back into him and held his hands in mine as they rested on my stomach.

"You know I'm not going to let anyone take you away from me right?" Paul whispered into my neck as he nuzzled it.

"I know I'm just scared," I said. "I don't want anyone to get hurt because of me and this woman will stop at nothing to get me to marry her son."

I rolled over in his arms and pressed my lips to his.

"Baby, if anyone tries to take you from me, I will kill them. No one is going to separate us Princess," Paul whispered before pressing his lips firmly back to mine. I smiled into the kiss and rested my head on his shoulder and nuzzled into his neck. "What are doing Friday night?"

"Nothing to my knowledge. Why is that?" I asked him.

"Well, the Elders are holding a bonfire to tell all the tribal stories and I was wondering of you'd want to come with me?" Paul asked.

"I'd love to," I answered. Paul grinned and I giggled as he rolled me onto my back with his body resting over mine. I smiled against his lips as he kissed me but soon moaned as he deepened the kiss.

"I love you angel," he whispered against my lips.

"I love you too Paul. Thank you for always being there for me," I replied. Paul smiled and kissed my nose gently. He rolled off me and lay on his back before pulling me to him. He kissed my head and I closed my eyes as his deep breaths lulled me to sleep.

- Paul POV -

"You ready to go angel?" I asked Mione. I was very nervous about tonight. We would be telling her, Harry and Sirius about us being werewolves and I was terrified to see their reactions. I didn't want to lose Mione and I knew that this sort of revelation could be terrifying. When Jake told Josie, she was so frightened she didn't speak to him for a week.

"Yep. Let's go," Mya said. She grabbed my hand and I kissed her head. We decided to walk down to the beach and I was glad to spend the time with her just in case she never wanted to see me again. "Hey, are you ok? You seem a little off."

"I'm fine beautiful," I said but it wasn't very convincing. Mya stepped in front of me and stopped causing me to stop.

"I believe you about as far as I can throw you. Come on, tell me what's wrong," Mya said. I lowered my head but she lifted it so she could look into my eyes. I couldn't get over how beautiful she was. I cupped her cheek gently and pulled her lips to mine. I kissed her deeply and passionately and I could just hope that it wasn't the last time.

"You are going to hear some things tonight that are going to most likely freak you out and I don't want to lose you," I whispered as I rested my forehead against hers. She looked up at me and pressed her lips gently to mine.

"Paul, nothing you say is going to freak me out and scare me off. I'm made of tougher stuff than most people. I love you and I'm not giving you up anytime soon," Mya said.

"Hold on to that thought," I said before we kept walking. We soon arrived at the beach and I watched as Mya and Harry exchanged a glance. Harry nodded and hugged Leah to his side. Leah looked just as conflicted as I did and when she looked at me, she looked upset.

We all sat down and I grabbed Mya's hand as Billy spoke. When he finished, he looked at Harry, Mya and Sirius and sighed.

"We actually have something to tell you. The stories of our tribe are not just stories," Billy said. I looked down at Hermione but instead of seeing confusion, I saw acceptance. "The boys and Leah are all werewolves. They are known as the protectors of our tribe."

"We know," Mya said softly, shocking us all.

"What do you mean you know?" Sam asked.

"I had a hunch that something was up. You are all incredibly strong, I've watched Paul pick up both Jake and Jared while Embry jumped on his back. Your body temperature is extremely high, higher than a normal person, you each eat enough food to feed an entire army and you all heal extremely quickly. I started doing some research after the first time we heard the stories and just figured it all out. We decided to let you tell us in your own time," Mya said.

"You are far too intelligent for your own good," Billy said with a grin. I kissed her head and smiled down at her.

"There's more," Billy said and we all turned back to him. He went on to explain imprinting and I watched Mya's face as she looked deep in thought before smiling softly.

"Let me guess, Leah imprinted on me and Paul imprinted on Mione," Harry said once Billy finished speaking. Leah and I nodded and we waited for rejection. Instead, I felt Mya's soft lips press against my cheek and I looked down at her. She smiled at me and pressed her lips to mine.

"Is that what you were scared of?" she asked me and I nodded. She laughed and kissed me again. "I'm not afraid. In fact, I feel honoured. Paul, I love you and even without the imprint I feel that something would have developed between us."

I grinned brightly and looked over at Leah who was grinning just as bright.

"I guess I don't have to worry about them being safe anymore," Sirius said and Leah and I nodded. "Thank you for making them happy."

Jake looked like he was about to say something when Sirius jumped to his feet and stared into the forest. Harry and Mya stood and moved over to him quietly.

"I heard a crack," we heard him whisper and Mya and Harry nodded.

"Sirius, what's going on?" Sue asked but Sirius shook his head slightly. He was about to say something when we saw a red light come flying out of the trees. It hit Mya in the chest and I roared as she hit the deck. I moved over to her and pulled her into my lap. She was still breathing but her heart rate was slow and steady. I kissed her head and we heard a growl from in the trees before a large crack was heard.

"Jake, Quil, Brady, go find out what that was," Sam ordered. Leah had by now moved over to Harry who was now rubbing her back gently and kissing her head. The boys nodded and phased before running into the woods.

"Is she ok?" I asked as Sirius knelt down beside us. He checked her pulse and nodded.

"She will be fine. She's just knocked out," Sirius explained.

"Let's head back to my house," Billy said. We all nodded and I scooped Mya up into my arms. We all moved as quickly as possible back to Jake's house. When we got there, I lay Mya down on the couch and sat down in front of her whilst Kim, Josie and Leah stood around us. Sue handed me a cold cloth and I rested it on Mya's forehead. I sat watching her for the next hour before she groaned.

"Paul?" she whispered. Leah called everyone into the room as my imprint opened her eyes.

"I'm here Angel," I replied and she smiled softly. She then looked up at Sirius and glared.

"I will kill him," she said and Sirius laughed.

"She's fine," he said just as Jake, Quil and Brady walked in.

"We got a scent but it just disappeared," Jake said.

"We'll be on the lookout then. No one is going to take either of you away," Sam said to Mya and Harry. Mya sat up slowly and I kissed her gently. She smiled and stood gingerly. I pulled her into my arms and held her to my chest as I breathed in her scent. If anyone thought they were taking her away from me, they had another thing coming.

- Ron POV -

I slammed the door shut as I walked back into the kitchen.

"Did you get her Ronnie?" mum asked. I slammed my hands down on the table and growled. "What's wrong?"

"She thinks she can get away with fucking some guy. Well she has another bloody thing coming," I hissed out. Gin rested her hand on my shoulder and looked sympathetic. "Also, pretty sure Potter is fucking some Indian broad."

"What? He wouldn't do that to me," Gin said.

"He looked pretty damn cozy with the slut. And Herms was all cuddled up to this Indian. I'll make her pay," I said.

"Calm down. We'll get them and soon you will both be the most important people in the Wizarding world," mum said to us. Gin and I smiled at her and I sat back to think of the ways I could make Herms pay for the way she had embarrassed me.

- Hermione POV -

It had been two weeks since the pack had told us their secret and Paul and I were as happy as ever. School had started back and it was the last couple of months of Paul's school career.

"How is Paul coping with you forcing him to study for finals?" Harry asked me as we walked home one afternoon through the woods.

"He's alright. Jo loves me for it though," I said with a giggle. Harry laughed before we both stopped. "Did you hear that?"

Harry nodded and I rested my right hand on my left, right over my ring. I started chanting the word help under my breath. Sirius had the rings made into communicators after the first attack on me at the bonfire.

Harry was about to say something when we were both flung backwards. Harry and I both hit trees and when I looked up I noticed four men advancing on us.

"Well, looks like we're getting paid boys," one of the men said. Harry and I pushed ourselves to our feet and looked at them.

"Let's bind them and get them back to Weasley," a second man said. They pointed their wands at us and our war training came back to us. We jumped out of the line of the curses and jumped behind some boulders. We heard footsteps pounding through the forest and we knew the boys were on their way. Sure enough the pack pounced into the clearing and the men looked slightly confused. "Let's get rid of this lot and then get back to England."

I watched as the men turned their wands on the pack who instantly started dodging spells. I kept my eyes on Paul as he fought and I cried out as one of the men hit him with something. As he stood over him ready to deliver a kill shot, I phased into Snowflake and pounced. I bit the man's arm and he screamed and tried to dislodge me. I dropped down in front of Paul and snarled. I heard Harry put up a shield spell around the pack in my head and I watched as he jumped from behind his boulder as Leo.

"Oh, so they want to play," one of the men said. Harry and I phased back, wands drawn and ready to fight. "Let's do this."

Harry and I split off, taking two guys each. I dropped my first guy before the second guy threw me face first into a tree with a cutting hex. My side, face and chest were bleeding heavily as I looked back up at him. He laughed as I struggled to my feet but I cast a quick and silent stunning spell and he hit the deck like a sack of bricks. We bound the four men and Harry pocketed their wands.

"Mione, you alright?" Harry asked as he raced over to me.

"Yea, we should get back. I'll move quicker as Snowflake," I said. At his hesitant look, I shook my head. I quickly phased into Snowflake and nudged his hand. He explained to the pack that we would explain everything back at the house before they nodded. A now healed Paul stood and the pack headed back to Sam's place.

Harry phased into Leo and helped me stand. We moved as quickly as possible back to Sam's place. Halfway through the walk, Harry lifted me up onto his back as my body was hurting badly. We arrived at Sam's cabin and Harry roared. The pack, the Elders, the girls and Sirius ran out. Harry and I phased back and I hissed as Harry rested me on the ground.

"Shit Snowflake," dad said. He pulled out his wand and started healing my wounds. I flinched every so often but soon he was done. He handed me some blood replenishing potion (where he got it from I don't know) and I knocked it back quickly. He helped me to my feet and I groaned as my muscles protested.

"You sure I can't kill him? Maybe just maim them a little bit," I said and dad shook his head. He kissed my forehead and we turned to the pack. "Let's go inside and get on with that explanation."

We all walked inside and dad, Harry and I sat on the couch facing the pack, the elders and the girls. I looked up and noticed Paul staring at the floor with determination. I lowered my head again and remained silent while dad explained all about the Wizarding world to them. When he was almost done, I stood up. The tension was far too heavy for me to last any longer. I ran outside and phased mid air before racing towards the cliffs. I lay down in a ball when I got there and stared out at the waves crashing against the cliff face. A few minutes later I heard a twig snap but I couldn't be bothered to see who it was. If it was Ron then so be it - I couldn't stand to keep seeing Paul so upset. I felt something nudge my neck and I turned my head to see a beautiful silver wolf. I was about ready to run because if this was an actual wolf I was in trouble when I looked into his eyes. They were dark and held love, compassion and understanding. It was Paul. I turned my head back out to the ocean and felt Paul sit beside me. He nudged my neck again with his nose but I rested my head on my paws. I couldn't look at him and see hatred. It would kill me.

I opened my mind and heard his internal rambling.

Come on babe. Look at me. Please. Why won't she look at me?

Why would you want me to? I have basically lied to you and made it so you and the pack are in serious danger. You should hate me, I said mentally and he started slightly before nudging my muzzle. I turned my head slightly and he nuzzled my muzzle.

Princess, you never lied - you kept a secret and did you forget that I did as well? Also, the pack and I are constantly in danger anyway. We always have to worry about leech attacks and what not. You being here just gives me something to fight for.

He nudged my nose until I looked up at him and as I looked into his eyes, I saw overflowing love and devotion.

As for why I want you to look at me, you are the most beautiful woman/wolf in the world and I love you. I cannot imagine my life without you and not seeing your beautiful eyes hurts me. Nothing you will ever do will make me hate you.

I made the wolf equivalent of a smile and licked his muzzle. He moved closer to me and I cuddled into his warm chest. He rested his paws on mine and licked my muzzle in return. I cuddled my head into his neck and I heard him growl appreciatively. The two of us sat curled up in silence as we stared out at the ocean for who knows how long but it didn't matter. All that mattered at that moment was Paul and I and how much we loved one another.
