Once again, he'd survived. There had been moments in the past when Remus sometimes prayed for death during his transformations because he was so ashamed and disgusted with the creature he became. However, he did not hate the wolf inside of him as much as he used to, because in truth he had to be grateful to it. If not for his furry little problem, he and the other Marauders might not have been so close. His problem had brought them together in a way that only they themselves could understand. They'd bonded in a way that not many others could really even understand. For that, he had to be thankful for his condition. Nevertheless, he still worried about his friends getting involved. They could be seriously injured, or worse. It would've been better for all of them if Remus just dealt with his issue himself, but the others didn't seem to think that way.
After spending the full day in the infirmary, Remus snuck back through the castle, to the Common room, and up into their dorm. He'd left during dinner, when he knew almost everyone would be gathered in the Great Hall. It left him free to make it back unnoticed, which was how he preferred it. Once inside, he took his shoes off and switched into his pajama bottoms. He left his t-shirt and the cardigan Sirius had lent him on and curled up under the covers. For an hour, maybe two, he laid alone in silence, just trying to relax. He was still sore and terribly exhausted, though Madam Pomfrey did amazing work in healing his injuries.
