The Slytherin Scandal: Year Two

Sirius Black, a world renounced murderer, is an animagus. He is on the loose and for some reason is going to Hogwarts. But after Lea meets Sirius, she's not sure if all those things are true.

Things begin to get odd when Lea finds out that the new DADA professor is an old friend of Sirius'. On the first day back, she also learns her teacher's worst and most hated secret. What happens when those two meet and an old friend comes back from the dead?


22. Sirius' Confession

Sirius started out by telling Lea about Voldemort and why the Potters went into hiding. Voldemort was going to try and kill them all, no one knew why. He just wanted them dead.

To keep the Potters safe, Dumbledore set their house up with enchantments. The Potters wee to choose a Secret Keeper, someone they trusted above everyone. The Keeper was going to be Sirius.
Sirius had other plans, though. He knew Voldemort would think the Potters had given the job to a capable wizard and Sirius knew this. He convinced Lily and James to give the job to Peter Pettigrew, the man with the rat face, also known as Wormtail. As it turned out, Wormtail was the traitor that everyone was afraid of.

He turned around after getting the job, and told the Dark Lord where the Potters were hiding. Voldemort found them, killed Lily and James and tried to kill Harry.

Sirius arrived too late to save them and just as Hagrid had gotten Harry out of the collapsed house. He gave Hagrid his flying motorbike and fled. He fled to find Wormtail, who had run as soon as he knew Sirius was on to him. Sirius cornered him in a street and Wormtail faked his death.

Sirius was arrested, and found guilty, for the deaths of thirteen muggle and the deaths of Lily and James Potter. As far as Dumbledore had known, Sirius was the Secret Keeper, as well as everybody else. As long as Pettigrew was dead and Harry as safe, he would have stayed in Azkaban.

It as by accident that he had found out that Wormtail was alive. It was in the newspaper that Fudge had given him. As soon as Sirius saw the picture, he devised his escape, turning into a dog, slipping out through the metal bars and swimming to shore.

It show that this was indeed what happened, Sirius showed her the missing memories to fill in the gaps.

"How can you change into a dog, and Pettigrew into a rat," Lea asked, the only thing that confused her at that point.

Through Occlumeny and Legilmency, Lea knew that the memories were not fakes, and The Wolf was putting its opinion in on everything. It had taken her a while, but after remembering her Werewolf Studies classes, Lea put her trust into The Wolf. Her Wolf was very observant.

"That's not my secret to give away, but I can tell you that James was a stag," Sirius said. He had reverted to his human form now and was sitting on a chair next to Lea.

Lea suddenly remembered the first set of Sirius' memories that she had seen. The rat was running and pressed a knot on the base of a tree. The Whomping Willow to be exact.

"You went to accompany Remus," Lea gasped as she figured it out. Sirius looked up quickly in surprise. "You idiot! Do you know what could have happened to you three?!" Sirius gapped at her.

"How did you know," he whispered.

"I was told the first night back! Do you idiots know what would have happened if Remus had gotten loose?!?!"

"You called him Remus," Sirius whispered almost to himself, but Lea could hear him as if he had shouted into her ear. "Yes, we did and we didn't care if he was a werewolf, we wanted to help our friend."

"Do you know how painful it is to turn into a werewolf for the first time," Lea continued.

"No, and neither do you. We wanted to be their for our friend because it hurt," Sirius growled.

"After the first change, it doesn't hurt. Besides, he howled and screamed while he was in the Shrieking Shack because he bit and clawed himself," Lea shrieked.

"How did you know that? He only told us that after we surprised him," growled Sirius.

'He thinks you blackmailed him,' The Wolf told Lea.

"Remus told me," Lea said.


"Because he needed to." Lea was whispering now.

"Why," Sirius growled louder, getting angrier. "If you threatened him..." He let the sentence hang there.

"I didn't. Besides, I'm not the only student that knows. I just happen to be the one that was stupid enough to try and see him during the full moon," Lea said with a shrug.

Sirius glanced at her with suspicion. "He bit me," Lea explained, lifting her sleeve.

"You should go back with the owls," Lea said as she heard the shuffling of feet. Sirius darted under the bed then ran out the door after a glance at Lea.

As it turned out, the shuffling was Madame Pomfrey about to check on her patient. Lea pretended to sleep, and fell asleep.

Sirius and Lea soon learned to trust each other, Lea taking him some food when ever she could. That as about once a week.

The Wolf was actually very good with many things, except for one thing. The day that Lea was released was confusing, mostly because of The Wolf. Lea had quickly gotten use to the heightened senses, she even took the lenses out of her glasses. No, The Wolf made a special appearance when a certain Slytherin boy came around and walked passed.

The Wolf decided that it liked, liked a lot, Draco Lucius Malfoy. (A a note, Lea and many others, when word got out at an unknown time, that his middle name is a huge disappointment considering his father beat him.)
