I awoke in the Hospital Wing. Ron, Hermione, Ginny, Fred, and George stood over me.

"Oh my god, Rhea, you're okay." Fred said, once everyone backed off. He hugged my tightly and I hugged him back. I felt weak. It hurt to move.

Just then, Remus burst into the room. Fred helped me sit up as he ran to me. Remus hugged me and I hugged him back.

"Rhea, what happened?" He asked.

"I-I don't know." I said faintly. The others looked at each other and nodded.

"We'll just leave you alone then." Ginny said. They all walked out of the room, Fred looking back as he walked off.

"What happened?" Remus asked again. "You didn't want to say in front of the others, we all knew."

"I think I know what happened." I said. "I walked up to the dormitory and sat on my bed. Then I got a dream. It was my dad, and he was pacing around the Shrieking Shack. He kept saying, they're going to kill her. Then you came in. He told you, that the dementors were going to kill me."

Remus was speechless. He shook his head, then said. "How did you know?"

"This actually happened?" I said in shock.

Remus nodded, then said. "The dementors know who you truly are."

"How?"

"I don't know." Remus said. "But you need to start using the Patronus charm I taught you."

"Remus you know I'm not good at that."

"Yes you are. You've been able to produce a full-body patronus at the age of nine."

"But I haven't needed to use it."

"Well then we're going to practice." Remus said. "Once you're well then we're going back to my office and using the boggart to practice."

"But my worst fear isn't a dementor."

"It will be shortly. They're trying to kill you."

"That is pretty scary."

"I'm not going to lie to you." Remus said. "The dementors are trying to kill you. They somehow found out that you're Sirius Black's daughter, and they're trying to capture you and your father."

"So what am I going to do?"

"We'll practice. You also need to stay as far away from your father as possible."

"But you said I could see him." I said angrily.

"I know what I said but I want you to be safe."

"And I want to see my father!"

"Quiet down!" Remus snapped at me.

"I haven't seen my dad in twelve years. I miss him. He is finally out of Azkaban and I still can't see him."

"We both want you to be safe!"

"I can be careful! I just want to see my dad."

We sat in silence for a little bit. Remus checked him watch then stood up. "I have to plan for my lesson tomorrow."

"It's Sunday tomorrow." I said.

"I'm teaching Harry the Patronus Charm. Maybe you should come and we can practice."

"Fine, I'll be there."

"I'll be going. Get better soon." Remus said. He started to walk out when I said. "Can you send Fred in?"
