5. Disaster strikes
"Sirius, you haven't set off any of the uh, schedueled...pranks, have you?" James was sure to ask this question a lot, incase Sirius forgot. "Why would you think that?" He replied. Sirius was beginning to get worried about his friend:supposed to be the king of pranks. "Dunno. Hey, you wanna come out to help Remus with his 'furry little problem tonight?" James asked. "Na. Sorry mate, I've got another date with Sara,"James looked a little downhearted. But as usual, he took that statement as an oppurtunity to tease Sirius. It wasn't in the day's morning routine, however, James could find time to mock Sirius, it could be a once in an hour thing and he didn't want to miss it. "Sara? Sara Stillwater? Why didn't you tell me?" Sirius just shrugged and said: "Uh, I was too busy."
"Alright then Sirius, well manage Remus on our own, Peter and I." James sighed. "Enjoy your date," he said finally and left. -------------------------------------------------------
Managing Remus was tougher than I thought. It ended with him up in the hospital wing, taking time off his lessons, no matter how much he didn't want to. What happened was when James turned into a stag, his animagus form, Remus began to scratch himself. Werewolf scars are not easy to cure. You can't cure them. The one thing I was told NOT to do was to let him give himself these scars, lest the students become suspicious of remus' condition. In his effort to prevemt it from happening, I started to fight the young werewolf. But a stag couldn't manage a werewolf, and I lost. I blacked out while Remus proceeded to scratch himself. Oh dear, I'm not going to be able to manage remus on my own anymore, not without help! I had thought Peter would be with me, but he had had to do his dreaded homework. I hope remus is ok.
