Months past after Holiday Break and I still hadn't seen my father. I woke one morning to Hermione shaking my bed.

"Get up Rhea! Get your arse out of bed." She kept shouting. I slowly sat up and said. "What do you want?"

"Harry, Ron, and I have been trying to wake you up for hours." Hermione said.

"How could the boys try to wake me up?" I asked.

"Can't you smell this awful stench?" Hermione said, plugging her nose. "They've been throwing dung bombs up here for an hour straight!"

"Well I'm glad I can't smell it. I lost my sense of smell in first year when Malfoy shoved his wand up my nose."

"Why on Earth did he do that?"

"Do you even know about the things that he's done to me? And I what I did to him." I said with a laugh.

"Just get dressed." Hermione said. "We're taking you to see our friend Hagrid."

"The Gamekeeper?" I said. "I'm surprised you guys are friends with him. Being friends with a professor is something I'd normally have to do."

"Oh shut it. He's great! You'll like him." Hermione said.

I reluctantly got out of bed and got into my trunk. I grabbed my clothes and Hermione left. I changed and fixed my hair. I left the room and walked down to the Common Room. Harry, Ron, and Hermione stood by the door, and Ron shouted. "Hurry up Rhea! We don't have all day!"

I rolled my eyes and ran down the stairs. I walked over to the three and we left the tower.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione led me to a hut near the forest. Harry knocked on the door of the hut and a very tall man, Hagrid, opened the door.

"Harry, Ron, Hermione! It's great to see you! Who's this?" He said.

"Hagrid, this is Rhea Lupin." Hermione said. "She's Professor Lupin's daughter."

"Oh, well it's nice to meet you Rhea." Hagrid said, holding out his hand. I shook it and we walked inside.

Hagrid, Hermione, and Ron sat down at the table, then Harry and I sat in the windowsill.

"I-I'm very sorry to bring this up, but when are they going to kill Buckbeak?" Hermione said.

"Oh, um, when the weather gets warmer, I guess. In exactly two months." Hagrid said.

"What? Who's Buckbeak?" I asked.

"Oh, right. Rhea doesn't take your class Hagrid." Ron said.

"Buckbeak is a hippogriff. Draco Malfoy got a scratch on his arm and now he's been sentenced to death!" Hagrid said.

"That git." I said, under my breath. I realized that after I faked a break up with him, I've started to loose interest in him.

"Why do you want to know?" Hagrid said.

"We want to come and be with you." Harry said.

"No! I don't want you seeing that!" Hagrid said, standing up.

"I'm sorry to bring it up Hagrid, but we just want you to be ok, when it happens." Hermione said.

"I'll be find. Nothing you need to worry about. So, tea anybody?"

"I'll take some." Ron said.

"Sure." Hermione said.

"I'll take some." Harry and I said in unison. We slid away from each other and waited for our tea. Hagrid handed us each a glass and we took a sip.
