I woke up in my bedroom. It has been the same for the twelve years I've been with Remus. Dad's still in prison, and I missed him so much. I didn't want to get out of bed. I wanted to sit and think.

I was never aloud to talk to Dad, I could never visit, and I thought I had lost him forever. I thought he had went insane from the dementors.

I was hoping that Hogwarts would except me for who I am, not being the daughter of a murderer. He was falsely accused, and unlike what they all say, it affected me.

Hogwarts was supposed to be my escape from reality, but it just trapped me where I was in life. My only friends were the portraits on the walls. The Slytherin's didn't even talk to me. Even the professors didn't want to talk to me. They never let me answer questions that I know the answer too. It's been tough. It's worse at Hogwarts then it is with Remus. With Remus, he treats me like I'm his own daughter, and I don't ever have to leave. They don't even know I'm Sirius Black's daughter.

I finally stopped thinking, not wanting to ruin another year at Hogwarts that was starting in a week or so. Remus was taking me to the Leaky Cauldron today so that we could spend the week and get my new school supplies. I got out of bed and got dressed in my muggle clothes. I walked downstairs and into the kitchen. Remus was making breakfast, toast. I wasn't surprised, Remus can't cook.

I sat down at our small little table. Remus placed a plate with two pieces of toast in front of me. I immediately started eating. Remus grabbed his plate and sat down.

"So Iris, remember the rules when we go out in public?" Remus said.

"Yes," I said, taking a bite. "Don't tell people your real name, stay low, don't cause a scene, and don't talk about Dad."

"Right. Now, remember the name we use?"

"Yes, Rhea Lupin. But why do I have to hide who I am?"

"It's to protect you. People can't know who you really are."

"But why? It seems stupid that people think that just because I am Sirius Black's daughter, I have to hide who I am."

"It's for your own safety." Remus repeated.

"It makes no difference. No one talks to me. They all think I'm weird. They all think that I'm hiding something."

"Why should that matter? Just don't say anything about it and you should be alright."

"I don't want to talk about it now. So, when are we leaving for Leaky Cauldron?"

"About a half hour. I'd get packed to leave." Remus said, standing up. I stood up after I ate my last bite. I went back upstairs and found my trunk in my closet. I packed quickly, checked my trunk twice, and went back downstairs. Remus was already down there, ready to leave.

"Alright so remember, when we're out in Diagon Alley or in the Leaky Cauldron, you're my daughter, and your name is Rhea Lupin." Remus said.

"I don't see the point in this. It's driving me mad not being able to say I'm dad's daughter." I said.

"This is what your father wanted. He wanted you to be safe and not get hurt. It's too dangerous to tell people who you really are."

"I remember when I first went with you, and I was so scared. I thought Dad was going to get hurt, or killed. I didn't want to loose him. Now, I can't even say I'm his daughter."

"Iris, it's going to be alright. Your father'll be let out of Azkaban. I know it. But, we need to go to the Leaky Cauldron. Grab your bag."

I grabbed my bag and threw it over my shoulder. Remus grabbed his bag and threw it over his shoulder. We walked over to the fireplace and Remus grabbed some Floo powder. He stepped in the fireplace and said. "Leaky Cauldron!" He threw the powder down and a green fire swallowed him. Once the fire was gone, I grabbed some powder. I stood in the fireplace and said. "Leaky Cauldron!" I threw the powder down and I left our house. I flew out of the fireplace in the pub of Leaky Cauldron.

Remus stood next to the fireplace and said. "Let's get to our rooms. We'll go to Diagon Alley tomorrow."

I nodded and followed Remus up the stairs. He led me up the stairs and into my room.

"I'll be right next door." Remus said. I nodded, and plopped down on my bed as he walked out. I never wanted to leave. I never wanted to see anyone ever again.
