1. The Werewolf's Transformation

A cloud shifted. There were suddenly dim shadows on the ground. Their party was bathed in moonlight.

Snape collided with Lupin, Pettigrew, and Ron, who had stopped abruptly. Black froze. He flung out one arm to make Harry and Hermoine stop.

Harry could see Lupin’s silhouette. He had gone rigid. Then his limbs began to shake.

“Oh, my—” Hermoine gasped. “He didn’t take his potion tonight! He’s not safe!”

“Run,” Black whispered. “Run. Now.”

But Harry couldn’t run. Ron was chained to Pettigrew and Lupin. He leapt forward but Black caught him around the chest and threw him back.

“Leave it to me—Run!”

There was a terrible snarling noise. Lupin’s head was lengthening. So was his body. His shoulders were hunching. Hair was sprouting visibly on his face and hands, which were curling into clawed paws. Crookshanks’s hair was on end again; he was backing away—

As the werewolf reared, snapping its long jaws, Sirius disappeared from Harry’s side. He had transformed. The enormous, bearlike dog bounded forward. As the werewolf wrenched itself free of the manacle binding it, the dog seized it about the neck and pulled it backward, away from Ron and Pettigrew. They were locked, jaw to jaw, claws ripping at each other—

Harry stood, transfixed by the sight, too intent upon the battle to notice anything else. It was Hermione’s scream that alerted him—

Pettigrew had dived for Lupin’s dropped wand. Ron, unsteady on his bandaged leg, fell. There was a bang, a burst of light—and Ron lay motionless on the ground. Another bang—Crookshanks flew into the air and back to the earth in a heap*. “Expelliarmus!” Pettigrew shouted. Hermione and Harry’s wands flew into the air, and Pettigrew caught them. Two bursts of red light flew at them. One hit Hermione; Harry dodged the second.

A howl rang through the night. Harry turned to see the werewolf, snout pointed to the moon, standing over his godfather’s fallen form—

Something hit him in the back. He fell forward. His vision went black, before he hit the ground.

Wormtail had to move quickly. He looked back to see Padfoot running away from Moony. He grabbed the invisibility cloak and threw it over Harry’s unconscious form. He whispered, “Mobilicorpus.”

He felt himself shrinking into his rat form. The ground came up to meet him. He ran under Harry. Keeping some focus on keeping Harry floating above him, he ran into the Forbidden Forest. He hoped Padfoot was too busy with Moony to realize his godson was gone.

Once he was sure he passed the school's wards, he stretched into his human form. He wrapped one hand around Harry's wrist and Disapparated.

Padfoot stared as Moony ran into the woods. He turned and ran back to where he had left his godson, silently praying Harry had run to the castle.

He froze when he reached the site. The youngest Weasley boy and the clever Muggleborn, and Snivellus, were all unconscious. He knew Harry would never abandon his friends. Oh, he was going to murder that rat!

Quickly, he transformed into his human form. He found Ron’s wand. He revived the children. “Run to the castle. Now,” he ordered, throwing the wand to Hermione. “I will find Harry.” Not watching to see if they listened, he turned and ran towards the forest, turning into Padfoot mid-sprint. Good thing too, for the Dementors started swarming the area.

Padfoot soon found the rat’s scent trail. He followed it, hoping the rat hadn't disappeared yet. The trail stopped. He knew the rat had Disapparated with his godson. He dashed to the edge of Hogwarts grounds and the Forbidden Forest. He would stay to make sure Moony didn't do anything he would regret in the morning.

When I find that rat, I will tear him limb from limb, he swore to himself. With my teeth.
