Who: Remus Lupin and Tonks Lupin When: BACKDATED to most recent full moon Where: Lupin house What: Gabe finally gets to see what happens to his Dad each month Rating: PG
For the past few moons, Remus and Tonks had been carefully prepping Gabe for tonight. He'd been told all about his father's condition and its effects, but he'd yet to witness any of it. Up until now, he'd been forbidden from entering their bedroom the day after moons and wasn't told where his father went during the night. This particular month, they'd planned to taking Gabe along to see the barn where Remus spent moons and they'd promised he could bring his daddy some tea the next morning.
It was late afternoon and the time they had to leave was getting close. Remus was stretched out on the sofa under a light blanket with Gabe at his feet. He'd been fighting a cold all week and was a bit worse-off than usual. He'd fretted about the whole thing quite a bit, but was eager to end Gabe's questions by demystifying it all for him.
"Did he eat supper yet, love?" he called to Tonks. "We should get going soon."
