Remus cracked an eye open, staring blearily at the wooden planks on the floor. The dust had been stirred up throughout the night, revealing several scuff marks and a set of paw prints that were unmistakably that of a wolf. He sighed, feeling the familiar ache that had settled into his muscles since dawn. The pain in his joints was a little worse, so it took him a moment to push himself off the floor. He stifled a groan but was unable to hold back the wince that accompanied it.
His mind slowly began to whir to action. He had important things to accomplish today, no matter how much he wanted to conjure himself up a cot and recover from his transformation. A healthy breakfast and a hot cup of tea wouldn't hurt, either.
He sat up and scrubbed a hand over his face, massaging the blood back into his jaw and soothing the mild throbbing in his temples. If he were smarter, he'd find someone to make the Wolfsbane potion for him; he'd do it himself but he didn't have the knack for it, let alone the time. He reached for his robes and pulled them on, shivering away the chill and adding his cloak for an extra layer. It wasn't until he heard a crack of Apparition that he got up from the floor, and every muscle involved groaned in protest. Nevertheless, he moved to a position outside the line of sight from the door, wand held at the ready, just in case.
