15. The Full Moon's Dangers

Lea's day passed uneventfully. It was so dull, that Lea even took naps. Of course, she was in her navy blue cat form most of the day so she would be well rested when she would sneak out.


The plan was simple, wait for everyone to fall asleep, turn into an small animal (it didn't matter which kind), sneak out and watched Professor Lupin. She didn't want him to see her, she knew that he would remember when he turned back.


She impatiently waited for night to come and for the moon to rise.


Finally it was lights out, but it took nearly another hour for all the others to fall asleep.


Lea decided to go as a mouse, and silently grew smaller and smaller. She slipped through the walls and followed her nose. Lupin smelled of wolf and danger, so the more uncomfortable she was, the closer she was to him.


It only took about three minutes to get down to his office, even taking in that she was small.


Lea quickly changed into a less scared animal, a small badger. They felt little fear, but knew which battles to fight and when. Then she crept up to the office door.


She poked her way around, looking for a hole big enough to get through, there wasn't one.


Lea decided to go back when she heard whimpering inside of the room, as if a dog had gotten hurt. She couldn't let him lie there in pain if he had hurt himself, so Lea quietly opened the door.


She stepped in the office and made her way around the desk to find a wolf with glowing red eyes. She smiled comfortingly at the wolf and saw a large gash on its two front paws, as if they had been bitten. Lea drew closer and closer.

 


The wolf smelled the female human come in and heard the oak door close.


The female came closer and closer, stepping deliberately and slowly. She rounded the wooden writing pad.


She smiled at him. Why would she be smiling at a predator? She didn't know the danger she was in.


He whined again, getting her trust. She was still coming, but slower now. He felt she was part of the pack, and his cub.


The wolf didn't understand the new emotions, and he didn't like not knowing. He also didn't know about her bond with all animals.


The wolf didn't like not knowing, he hated it. So he did the only logical wolf thing to do. Attack and kill the thing that he didn't understand was the way of the pack.


If the thing he didn't like lived, it would become part of the pack.


The wolf snapped at Lea and dug his teeth into her arm, tasting the metallic sweetness of fresh blood.

 


Lea drew closer to the wolf and saw the gashes again. It looked the wolf had done this to himself.


Suddenly the wolf lunched at Lea. Her right arm shot up in front of her face instinctively. She felt the sharp teeth sink into her arm.


Lea was in shock as the wolf started to shake her arm, ripping more flesh away. This got her out of her daze, and she was scared.


Lea struck at the wolf's muzzle. Her arm hit his nose. The wolf let his grip lax just a bit, just enough for Lea to be able to twist her arm free. Unfortunately, as she twisted, the wolf's teeth cut in to more of her arm.


Lea ignored the pain and ran for the door. The wolf ran after and sank his teeth into her left leg and raked his claws down her leg at the same time. Lea fell down and twisted, kicking off the wolf, successfully stunning the wolf long enough to get away.


Lea quickly turned into a small cat, and ran up the steps. She found an empty classroom and turned human, unable to keep any animal form for any length time now.


Lea finally felt the pain creep up on her until she could no longer keep her eyes open.


Lea was left like that until Tuesday, when Lupin became human and remembered what happened.


He ran down the stairs to Severus' office and asked if he had seen Lea at all in the last 24 hours.


"No, and I'm getting worried about that. Why do you ask," Severus asked suspiciously.


"When I was a werewolf, something happened. I'll tell you after we find her," Lupin said, stalling for time. He was worried about Lea and he needed to search.


He sniffed the air, hoping to find any sent of a werewolf.


Werewolves, even in human form, can smell another one of their own. Especially a newly bitten one, the were genes and human genes are fighting for dominance. Both are forcing each other apart. It's only after the first full moon that both are in a sort of truce.


Lupin smelled blood after almost five minutes. There was a lot and it was old, yet some was still fresh.


Lupin ran up to the room, Severus followed. Lupin threw open an old cherry wood. In it he found Lea on the floor covered in old blood.


She breathed shallowly, and as she breathed out, more blood came out off her arm and leg. Lupin ran over to her and started to try to apply pressure to the wounds. Many animals would not let either of them get near.


That is, until Fawks and Raven showed up. Fawks quickly cried on the worst of the injures then went to get Dumbledore. Raven shooed the animals away from Lea so the two wizards could get her to the Hospital Wing.


Severus conjured a stretcher and levitated Her on to it. Raven jumped up and sat by her head. She started to lick some blood off of Lea's face when she woke up for a moment.


"That hurts," she said almost silently. Severus didn't hear her, but Lupin's finely tuned senses did. He looked and saw the Raven had stopped the cleaning and was sitting and staring accusingly at Lupin.


The two professors quickly got Lea to the Hospital Wing. "By Merlin's beard, what happened," Madame Pomfrey yelled when she saw Lea. As she took a closer look at her she marveled that the girl was even alive.


The witch waved her wand and the blood was gone. She tried to seal up the wounds, but they wouldn't heal with any magical help. Except for, what seemed to be Fawks' tears. Even with those, there were scars, red and sore.


Madame Pomfrey lifted Lea up and stripped her of her now ragged clothes (the men were pushed out of the door at this point). Soon after bandaging the cuts up, a dressing gown was put on her.


Lea lay there, never knowing what exactly was going on until Raven told her the following day.
