(AU Fic) Two twins named Remus and Rachael Lupin have been inseperable for the eight years they've been on this Earth. But one fateful trip into the forest has changed all of that.
Excerpt from Chapter Twenty Three - A Second Chance
Professor Lupin walked over and sat down at the foot of his daughter’s bed.
“How are you?” he asked, watching his daughter carefully.
“Fine,” she answered, although she could have been better.
“How could you-,”
“Please dad,” Rachael cut him off. “Sirius already gave me the ‘how could you’ lecture.” Professor Lupin smiled.
“Did he now?”
“Yes and he got through to me pretty well.”
“Good, I just hope you know never to do something like that again.”
“I’m not going to, Mum’s not worth it.” Professor Lupin clicked his tongue.
“You can’t say that,” he said quietly, getting up and heading for the door. “Everyone deserves a chance to change. Just as you tried to prove that to your mother, one day she’s going to prove it to you. Everyone deserves a second chance.”
*Warning, some mental abuse and later a little physical, nothing terribly bad, just a warning*
