“What do you mean you have a daughter?! How is that possible, Moony?” The young man ran a hand through his black messy hair. His gray eyes searched the room as he paced.
“It was in fifth year…”
“FIFTH YEAR?!” The first man stopped pacing and stared as his friend.
“Sirius, can I explain or are you just going to stand there and yell at me?” The otherman sighed and sat down on one of the couches.
“Yes, please, Remus, explain how the bloody hell you had a daughter in fifth year and none of us knew.” Sirius sat on the opposite couch and waited for his friend to continue.
“Do you remember the summer before our fifth year when I was having trouble with my folks and you ran away and lived with James and his parents for a while? I wasn’t around much that summer.” Remus ran a hand through his sandy blonde hair as he recalled that summer. He was 15, alone, depressed, werewolf.
“Yeah, you said you were going through family issues and needed to be there to help with things. I also remember when you came back to Hogwarts at the start of the year you couldn’t even look at firewhiskey without puking your guts out.” Sirius chuckled slightly, his grey eyes sparkling as he remembered his school days.
“I was drunk that summer, a lot.” Remus sighed as he looked down at his hands before continuing. “Anyways, I met this girl at a pub. She was 17 and on vacation with her family. She wanted to get away from her family and I wanted someone to escape reality with. We spent an entire week in bed –”
“Way to go, Moony!” Sirius interrupted with a huge smile on his face. “Didn’t know you had it in you!”
“When she got back to the ’States, she owled me that she was pregnant. I didn’t know what the hell to do being 15 and a dad was never anything I planned, being a dad wasn’t planned, not with me being a werewolf.”
“That would explain why you couldn’t seem to focus on anything that year.”
“Yes, and in February when I left to go take care of my ill mother…” Remus trailed off a bit hoping that his friend would get where he was going with this, but after looking at Sirius’ questioning eyes, Remus gave an exasperated sigh and continued. “She went into labor, almost 6 weeks early. Dumbledoor let me floo to the hospital she was at so I could be there with her. There were complications and Amelia lost her life, but the baby was fine. Amelia’s parents hated me and blamed me for her death. They wanted nothing to do with either the baby or me, so I was left to care for a new infant by myself at the age of 15. I wasn’t ready.”
“What happened? Where has your daughter been this entire time?” Sirius was now on the edge of his seat. Remus was one of his best friends in the whole world and couldn’t believe all of this happened without his knowledge.
“I couldn’t take care of a new baby at 15, especially being a 15 year old werewolf. So, I took her to a hospital and said that I found her. She was put up for adoption and I never heard anything about her again. That is until she managed to contact Dumbledoor trying to find me. I haven’t the slightest idea how she knew to find me, I didn’t think my name was attached to her in any shape, way, or form.” Remus furrowed his brow as he remembered leaving his baby girl in a hospital knowing that he would never see her again.
“She must have tracked you down somehow. She must have your brains, Moony.” Sirius smiled at his friend, trying to be comforting in some way. “So, where is your daughter now and how old is she again?”
“I’m right here,” a young woman was standing in the doorway with a smirk playing on her lips. “Oh and I’m 18 now.”
When Sirius saw her, his heart skipped a beat. Her long hair was bright red, her light green eyes had a sparkle in them, and her pale white skin shone in the sunlight. He was in trouble and he knew it. She was his best mate’s daughter.
Author’s Note: So there’s the prologue. I hope it’s good, I’ve had this story in my head for a few years and never got around to writing it in fear that it wouldn’t be any good. Also I'm new and trying to figure out the formatting so sorry if it looks weird, I'm working on figuring it out.
