11. Lupin, Black, and Malfoy

Remus Lupin straightens his tie and sighs before entering the courtroom.

Alastor Moody walks beside him, both grim faced and frowning.

Crouch, a familiar ministry employee to both parties, clears his throat.

"All rise to call into order the hearing of the case of Malfoy Lupin Black." He says.

Everyone sits down and Remus nervously bounces his leg.

Remus feels a hand on his shoulder and turns to see McGonnal giving him a stern glance.

"Have faith, Remus." She comforts him.

The hearing begins, and after a gruelling six hours it is Remus' turn to be questioned.

"And what of the Potter Boy? Mr. Lupin do you care specifically for this child only? Why are you not here to defend your rights to both?" Comes the question from a member of the wizenmogent.

Remus sighs.

"I care for both Children. I want wants best for both of them and for Harry that meant being shielded from the Wizarding world and being raised by his mother's sister and her husband. Cygnus does not need this sort of protection. She needs a family."

"The Malfoys are her family. Narcissa is daughter of Cygnus Black the Second and through him a direct cousin of the girl's father." Some woman remarks snidely from her seat in the Jury.

"Yes I understand this but she doesn't know them. She was raised by her Uncle Sirius and through him she became a part of our family. She knows and loves us— I mean me— but she does not know the Malfoys."

"So, she is young, she will learn and in time forget about you and your excuse for a family." Comes the same woman.

"That's quite enough of that, Dolores." Crouch says distastefully.

"And your Lyncathropy, Mr Lupin?" Comes the wheezy voice of an elderly man in the front row.

"The wolfsbane potion allows me to retain my human mind even if my body has transformed into that of a wolf. No harm shall become of Cygnus." He answers, standing straighter.

"It seems to me, Mr Lupin, that you need the child more than the child needs you."

"Then it's decided then." Crouch says. "By order of this court, the child shall go to the Malfoys.

A burly ministry man opens a side door, and a blue blur escapes and runs to Remus.

Another ministry official takes the girl and hands her to Lucius Malfoy.

Remus sobs as Malfoy walks away with Cygnus in his arms.

Minerva hugs him and tries to calm him, crying herself.

The door to the courtroom creaks open ominously, and suddenly

"I love you Moony!" Cygnus shouts over Malfoy's shoulder.

Remus cries harder, making the child frown.

He cries, ignoring the little voice in the back of his head, telling him every little thing is gonna be alright.
