4. Professor Lupin's Secret

Severus and the others turned up about five minutes after Lea sat down. As it turned out, McGonagall did not come with the three men.


Raven was asleep when Dumbledore walked in. Lea made to stand, but Dumbledore motioned for her to stay sitting. Behind him came Lupin and finally Severus. Lea looked at Lupin with pure curiosity on her face.


"Miss Talbot, there is something that you will have undoubtedly noticed about Professor Lupin," Dumbledore started. Severus glared slightly at Lupin.


"Yes, sir," Lea said.


"What did you notice exactly," Lupin asked oppressively not sure that he wanted to know the answer.


"You feel.... different. Almost like Professor McGonagall, but more animal like," Lea answered.


Lupin looked at the other two teachers for an explanation. Severus went and sat behind his desk. Dumbledore motioned for Lupin to take the last seat beside Lea.


"Oh, yes, before we say anything else, you should be aware of what Lea can do," Dumbledore proceeded to tell Lupin about what Lea could do. He was interrupted by Severus a few times to clarify something.


"You can do all of this," Lupin asked half an hour later.


"Yes, sir," she said. "What exactly do I need to know?"


"Ah, yes. I'm sorry, I almost forgot. Remus Lupin here is a werewolf," Dumbledore told her.


Lupin's face was expressionless, most likely waiting for her to become terrified of him.


"Okay, anything else," she asked briskly as if she felt with this sort of thing every day.


"You can't tell anyone," Lupin said in bewilderment at Lea's reaction.


"Well, of course. People would probably panic if they found out," Lea said. Lupin's face was one a light with stunned surprise. Behind his desk Severus suppressed a smile. Only Lea saw this.


"That is all, we should be going," Dumbledore said with a smile. Both he and Lupin left.


"Severus, I need to ask you something. Professor Dumbledore said that I might be able to go to Hogsmead this year, but I need your permission. May I," Lea asked him.


Severus thought it over for a minute as Lea sat there waiting.


"I don't think it would be a good idea. After all, Sirius Black is on the loose. I... no, I do not think you should go Lea," Severus said. Lea didn't hold it against him, he was just looking after her safety.


"Are you going to try and go anyway," Severus asked.


Lea blushed, she had been planning that. "Yes," she said. Sometimes it was a bit annoying that Severus knew her so well.


Severus sighed. "Your probably going to succeed, too. You can go as long as you stay in sight of other students and you check in with either me or Professor Dumbledore every hour," he said in defeat.


Lea didn't like the conditions much, but she agreed. Plus, she didn't want to face Sirius on her own if he was an insane mass murderer.


Lea picked up Raven and wales to the common room. About half way there she was stopped by a red haired Head Boy She wasn't sure but she thought his name might be Perry.


"What are you doing out of bed, miss," he asked stepping in front of her.


"Who wants to know," Lea asked tiredly.


"Head Boy," Perry said.


"Your name," Lea said in a duh voice.


"Percy Weasley, not that you need to know. I'm giving you detention for a week," he said.


"For what? It's not like I'm out here because I decided to be. Besides it's the first day back," Lea said with an indigent voice.


"You know the rules, you broke them. Detention," Percy told her in an emotionless voice. "I'll let Professor Snape know about this in the morning."


"Let him know about what," asked a voice behind Percy. Lea looked around as Percy turned around. It was Lupin. "Sorry, I forgot to ask Severus something when I heard you two talking."


"Hello, Professor Lupin," Percy said.


"What were you going to tell Severus," Lupin asked again.


"Miss," Percy paused not knowing Lea's name.


"Lea Talbot," replied Lupin as Lea opened her moth to talk.


"Miss Talbot is out roaming the halls passed curfew. I have given her detention for the week," Percy explained.


"Do you know why she is out of bed," he asked him. His voice seemed to shake slightly.


"He never asked," Lea said before Percy could talk.


"Well, Mr. Weasley, I'm afraid that she will not be going to detention." Before he could protest Lupin explained. "Severus, Dumbledore and I were talking to her just now."


"What is going on here," asked Severus as he came around the corner. "There is too much talking going on here."


"Nothing, just setting some things straight," Lupin said. Severus turned to Lea for conformation. She nodded behind Percy's back.


"Very well. Mr. Weasley, please be on your way," Severus told him. Percy left angrily.


"Remus, I need to talk with you for a moment about the potion. Lea, get to bed," Severus told her.


"Yes, sir. Good night Severus, Professor Lupin," she said as she turned.


Lupin raised an eyebrow at Severus as Lea left.


"I didn't peg you as the warm and fuzzy type," Lupin told him. Severus sneered in response.


"As I was saying, there are some things I need to tell you about the potion," and Severus proceeded to tell Lupin about the potion.


Soon after Lea found her way to her four poster and put all the protective spells she could think of around it silently. After that she went to sleep with Raven on her other pillow.
