8. All In The Same Situation

Shaking and bearly on my feet we stood infront of Big Ben. Everything was still spinning and I couldn't move without falling down. Nevertheless, I tried and I was nearly on the ground when strong arms catched me and supported me. Lightly leaned against a chest I felt comfortable but my vision was terrible and my head was hurting.

"Galaxy, are you alright?" a worried voice asked me. I managed somehow to nod.

"But you don't seem so. Damn! I should have used my broom!"

Finally I snatched up and said weakly: "Thank god, I didn't eat something."

"What?! Oh, my! You need to eat something! Wait! We will get you first something to eat and then we will go to Diagon Alley."

"Dally Alley? I never heard about that... where is it?" I asked quietly.

"Diagon Alley not Dally Alley. But first something to eat, then Diagon Alley!" he said to me as if I was a little child. Me feeling abit better but still that paralyzed, he led me through the busy streets of London. 

Remus gave me the very British breakfast, bread with orange jam and a cup of tea, while we walked down to a pub, the Leaky Cauldron.

"Are you kidding me?! You didn't want anything from that great restaurant but now we are going into a pub? Typical men, runnung to a pub like a camel runs through the desert!" I said offended.

He laughed. "Just wait and see." he smiled at me.

Me having my half piece of bread in my right hand and in the other one a cup of fennel tea I entered the pub whose door was held open by Remus for me.

A musty smell mixed with alcohol and smoke hit my nose. It was lightly dimmed and a few figures were situated in the room, some half asleep at the counter others talking to eachother in the back of the room.

Remus walked infront of me and greeted the server behind the counter with a nod who returned it and looked at me curiously. Me smiling lightly walked more closely behind Remus who was searching for a table in the very back of the pub. Finally he found a table and gestured me to it with his hand and pulled out a chair for me.

Me sheepishly smiling at the table infront of me, I sat down. While he giggled and took a seat opposite of me I put down my tea and took a small bite of my bread.

"Wow! You are eating very slow, by the way! I would have eaten 40 pieces of bread meanwhile", he noticed.

"Yeah, I know. But I want to enjoy every bite and taste every ingridient of what I am eating. And that takes time, so please don't push me!" He laughed a very warm laugh and let me smile too.

A man came to us then and asked: "What do you want, you two?" he ready to write down the oders.

"Eeehm... a firewhisky, please." I looked at Remus stunned who saw that and smirked.

"And you Miss?"

"Nothing, thank you." Remus answered for me. The waitor looked at him annoyed and went off.

"Are you always drinking that soon... in the morning... at... " looking at my watch which was in a ring form at my left middle finger. "10 am?" He chuckled lightly.

"Usually not. Because I am normally in my bed now."

Feeling guilty for his early wake up I said: "Oh, I'm sorry... for annoying you at this time. I didn't - "

I was interrupted by him: "Oh, no. You don't have to be sorry for that. It's not your fault! I should complain to Albus but I would be very stupid if I do. Because meeting you and enjoying your company makes me the luckiest wizard in our world right now!" He winked at me and I sheepishly looked away.

Fortunately the waiter came back with a glass of clear liquid. "Are you sure you really want nothing, Miss?"

"As I said before, she doesn't need anything. You can go now." Remus said abit harshly this time but still friendly. The waiter gave him a last angry look and left us by our own.  

Feeling abit strange and eating my last bite of bread I asked him: "What do I need for school?"

"Oh, alot of stuff. It's that much that I made a list. Afterall, you have to catch up 3 years and then you will study for your 4th year too! I really wonder what was on Dumbledores mind when he decided this..." he rummaged in his coat pockets and finally found what he was looking for.

"Eeehm... You need, obviously, a wand, a pet, a broom, then robes and various books. And then we can buy what you like and need." He smiled at me after reading out the list.

"A wand? I ... don't know how to use one... Will I learn it at my new school?" I asked unsure.

"Of course you will! And you will learn how to use your broom and everything related to magic. Don't worry Galaxy, everything will be fine." he squeezed my hand.

"I went there too! I wasn't only a student but also teacher. I teached 'Defence against the Dark Art'."

"Defence against the Dark Art? What's that?"

"Well, as it is in the name, you learn how to defend yourself against the Dark Art, the dark magic."

"Defend against the Dark Lord?" He looked at me stunned.

"Yes. And his followers." I felt very nervous and honestly I was also scared.

He saw that and squeezed my hand tighter and said: "You are not alone. Everyone is involved, not only you! We are all in the same situation, Galaxy."

"But I am the only one who can end it." Remus looked very affected and didn't know what to say, rather he wanted to say something but didn't.

Me breaking the uncomfortable silence, finally, said: "You were a teacher? Aren't you working any more as a teacher?"

He sighed uncomfortably and answered: "My physical condition doesn't allow me to... teach any more."

I knitted my brows and answered again: "So, you are ill. What do you have? If I may ask."

"I'm a werewolf." he whispered and watched me very closely.

Feeling more strange and not believing him I said: "I... can't believe that! There isn't anything like that! Is that true? Are you really a werewolf? You are ... just looking like a normal human being!" He looked at me disbelievingly.

"Why should I lie to you? I was bitten by one and... since then I am a werewolf....... You didn't accept that fact that there is an other wold, a different world than yours." Feeling embarassed I didn't respond.

"I can understand that all this is to much for you and of course it seems to you unreal but - " grabbing both of my hands and causing to face him, "- you have to trust me, us. Please save us. Please!"

Seeing the fear in his eyes I swallowed and nodded awkwardly and he suddenly released my hands and captured his emotions. "I am sorry. It's just ... so much preasure."

This time taking me his hand, I said: " We are all in the same situation, Remus."

He looked at me and smiled lightly and then said: "Albus was right." I pulled my hand surprisingly back and thought after clearing my mind how to lighten up the mood.

"And am I allowed to take a pet?" I asked enthusiastic. I love animals and I always wanted to have one. He smiled at me.

"Yes, you are. But it's very important for your education. It's not only a pet." He told me.

"I always wanted a pet!" me ignoring his indroctination.

"Well, then lets go! I think your pet is also curiously waiting for you." he made fun of me but I didn't mind.  

Both standing up and he leaving a bit money, not the British currency, on the table, we walked to a door beside the bar counter. Remus said good bye to Tom, the server behind the counter. Then Remus opened the door for me to a backyard.

I looked confused at Remus who took out his wand and said: "Just watch!"

He touched lightly some stones of the huge wall infront of us. Suddenly the stones started to move and I grabbed scared the arm of Remus who smirked. The stones revealed an archway, which led to a busy street.

"Welcome to our world Miss Charmé. This is Diagon Alley", he whispered in my ear. Remus started to walk off and me very startled following him, my hand still on his elbow.
