Who: Remus Lupin, Severus Snape, OPEN to other Hogwarts folks (Harry? Sirius?)
What: Remus goes to get his Wolfsbane while fighting a cold
It was Wednesday, which meant tomorrow night was the full moon, and it was painfully evident to Remus when he woke up. Whatever cold Sirius had complained about in his journal the previous week had made its way to Remus and he felt awful. He’d planned on working through the pre-moon grogginess and going to his job at Flourish and Blotts, but he had a cough that wouldn’t shake and a nose that was blocked solid. So, he sent an owl to his boss, pleading an apology for taking yet another sick day, and crawled back into bed. He didn’t want to take anything, for fear it would counteract the Wolfsbane. He wasn’t going to risk it until he had a chance to consult with Snape about the effects of the potion.
He slept most of the day straight through, waking only to fix a bowl of oatmeal and force down half of it. At four, he woke, showered, and dressed in a jumper that would normally be too thick and warm for the mild autumn weather but would serve to combat the chills he kept getting. Wrapping a scarf ‘round his neck, he Apparated to the gates of Hogwarts and entered the school grounds, eager to fetch his potion from Snape and get back to bed. Maybe, if he ran into Sirius, he’d stop for a cup of tea.
Muffling a cough into his arm, he hurried down the cold dungeon hallways towards the potion master’s office. He knocked with one hand while the other dug in his pocket for his handkerchief. Bloody runny nose!
