7. The cure
Romany continued to spasm on the floor for another few minutes until she stilled. Severus hovered his wand over her. "Romany wake up" he spoke softly to her. Charlie was knelt on her other side holding onto her hand tightly, willing her to open her deep brown eyes. Reeva stood above them trying to see if her twin was ok. "Will someone please tell me where Mya is?" asked an impatient Remus. "Go away you piece of shit. You left my mum and us. You don't get to walk back in and demand to see her" spoke a calm sounding Reeva, her hands had formed fists. "Remus, lets go wait outside." lily ordered as she ushered the James and Sirius out. Romany's eyes flickered open and all she saw was her uncle Sev and Charlie above her. "What happened?" she asked. "You took the last of the cure I gave you. Did it work? Are you free?" asked Severus as he rose and they helped her sit up. "I don't know. She seems quieter in my head but still there." she cried and buried her face into Charlies shoulder. He held her tightly to him and whispered softly to her, trying to ease her pain. Reeva stood and left the house, she had to deal with their other visitors.
Remus was pacing around trying to get the group to understand. He had to find Mya. "You need to leave. The others can stay but you need to go" said Reeva giving Remus a stern look. "I'm your father. Don't you dare talk to me like that. Now where is your MOTHER?!?!" shouted Remus in a fit of rage. His eyes had turn gold and his body was shaking. The wolf inside of him wanted to break free. Moony wanted his daughters obedience as the Alpha but knew he hadn't yet earned that level of respect and trust. "What on earth is going on? Why are you all standing around my house? Reeva whats going on? Remus .... remus?" a middle aged woman with long curly brown locks had pushed her way through the order and was now standing face to face with the love of her life. The one man for her, the man who had broken her heart. SMACK!! Mya had slapped Remus across the face and was glaring at him. "How dare you! HOW DARE YOU come to my home and think you can just waltz back in here and be a part of my life" Mya was furious and everyone who knew her could tell that this was years of pent up rage bursting out. "You wanted me out of your life and you got that. But I have moved on with my life. I have a career and 2 beautiful daughters that I have raised by myself. So don't you dare for one second think you can come back and everything will be alright again. We don't want you" she finished and took a deep breath. Lily came up and gave her a hug as she began to sob. "Shhh, Shh. Mya I'm so sorry. We met your daughters at the Burrow and then Charlie and Romany had a fight. He came to find her and tell her how much he loved her. Then Remus turned up and joined us. All he knew was that the woman of his dreams. The girl that overnight disappeared from his life was here. He didn't, We didn't know a thing about your life or the girls." Lily explained in that mothering voice she had always been good at. Mya continued to cry into Lily's shoulder and Reeva stood awkwardly to the side as she realised her father had never abandoned her and her sister on purpose. He didn't even know they existed.
Romany was held up by Charlie and made her way to the front door, where she had just heard her mothers shouts. She lent against the door frame and had Charlie speak for her. "Mya whats going on?" asked Charlie. "Remus didn't know about you girls. Please forgive him. I ran after we had a fight. I'm so sorry my sweeties." sobbed Mya as she left Lily's grasp and went to hold both her girls hands. She led them inside and the others followed. Lily knew it was gonna be a long night with lots of explanations.
