Chapter Eleven: Su Venganza

"I knew this would happen! I knew! But did you listen to me Albus? Do you ever?" The newly elected Minister of Magic, Averill Addison, yelled at the headmaster, shaking his head and pointing an angry finger at Helena the entire time, "This will blemish the school's reputation! Not to mention my own if this gets out!"

"You did not know that this would happen Averill, no one did. And this will not get out. Will it?" Dumbledore asked, keeping a calm eye on Helena as she silently cried in a chair across from him.

"How will people not figure this out if she leaves? Kids talk Albus!" he cried out as he paced the headmaster’s office.

"This young woman is the brightest I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. With the exception of Miss Evans of course," he said, giving Helena a small wink, "And I can assure you that every one of her teachers will say the same."

The professors behind the crying girl nodded their heads, and Hagrid shouted that Chase was one of the greatest people he knew, "She, and only she, has the choice Averill. Ask her. She will make the right decision."

Addison laughed cruelly, "This... this thing will make the right decision? She's a monster Albus! A werewolf! And a pregnant one at that! How can she possibly know what's right?"

"That is out of line Averill! I suggest you put your claws down. She is just a girl. It is her choice what to do and how to deal with it." Professor McGonagall said, placing a comforting hand on Helena's shoulder.

Addison looked flabbergasted, "Fine! Then what is it girl? Will you get rid of the hideous monster inside of you or leave and never be seen again?"

Helena looked up, tears still steadily streaming down her face. What did he want from her? Was he expecting an answer now?

"Humph. She's slow isn't she? No wonder she couldn't help but shag whatever came round." he snorted.

That was it.

"IT WASN'T MY FAULT!" Helena yelled as tears ran down her face, clouding her vision, "I can't control what it does! It was lonely. It's mating season! He- he found me and his scent was... intoxicating. I couldn't help it! I screamed in my head for it to stop, but it just kept repeating back to me "Mate, mate." and then he found me, and we... we..." Helena broke down and couldn't say anymore.

When she had blacked out the night she ran into the forest she had slept with another werewolf, and apparently there were more in there than anyone bothered to tell her, so they aren't sure who the father is. But that's the least of her worries. What is she going to do? Can she really kill something inside of her? Can she have a baby and take care of it, even during a full moon? Could she give it up, knowing that it was full werewolf?

"Do werewolves kill their young?" Helena thought to herself, "Wait, that's a stupid question! Oh Merlin, what's going to happen to me?"

"Headmaster? Do- do you think that I could take the Exit Examinations?" she asked carefully.

"Ha! No one has passed those in years! Let alone asked for one!" Addison said, his slightly balding head growing red from his maniacal laughter.

"Of course you can. You have the grades and the O.W.L's to do so. When would you like to take them?" Dumbledore asked, smiling down at Helena.

"Tomorrow sir." she replied, looking down at her hands.

"Tomorrow Helena?" he asked, looking at each of her professors with a worried expression.

"Yes sir. Once I get the results back I'll go somewhere where I can have the baby and maybe find a place for us on full moons. I won't "blemish" your record any further." an angry tear fell from her eye and she wiped it away before anyone saw it.

"Helena..." the headmaster started, but she interrupted him.

"No sir, I want to do this. I want to save everyone the trouble of having a pregnant teen here. I don't need to know who the father is, I just- I need a place to stay."

"We could try and help Albus. Find somewhere close." Professor Flitwick said, his own eyes flowing with tears.

Helena looked over at her favorite professor and sadly shook her head, "I was actually thinking of somewhere out of the country. So we could get a fresh start." she said, smiling encouragingly at the small man.

Dumbledore thought for a moment, "Of course. It's done. I suggest you say your goodbyes and pick a new captain today. We all know you'll pass with flying colors." he stood from his grand chair and walked over to Helena, giving her a warm hug, "Good luck my dear."

Helena nodded and said small thank you's to her teachers and Headmaster, opting to ignore the future recipient of the asshole of the year award. After leaving the office Helena began walking down toward the pitch, knowing that her teammates would be there. Over the last few weeks they had gotten so tired of never knowing when practices were that they just kept coming to the pitch at exactly the same time everyday to practice.

She smiled, knowing that they would be practicing harder than ever now that they had announced that the final quidditch game of the year would be in three weeks. Too bad she wouldn't be able to play. Helena looked into the bright blue sky and squinted to see her players better. This was going to be hard on her. They were like a second family to her. Oh no... What’s her dad going to say when he finds out?

Helena pushed that thought to the back of her mind and whistled loudly, gaining the attention of her players. She waved them over and they quickly lowered themselves to the ground and surrounded her.

"Hey Chase!"

"Chase, what's wrong? Why aren't you dressed?"

"Guys," Helena started, looking around at her surrogate family.

"Chase? What's going on?" Rash asked, leaning down and gazing at her.

"I- I can't practice anymore." she said, her teammates gasps inaudible to her.

"Why? Don't you want to win against Gryffindor?" asked Kory McNeil, a third year beater.

"Guys I- I'm not playing in the playoffs," Her team began whispering with confusion all over their faces.

"Why?" Chang asked, his hands twitching slightly.

"I'm going to take the Exit Exams tomorrow." she whispered.



"You can't do that!"

"How will we beat Gryffindor?"

"Listen up! I've decided to pick a new captain, and he'll decide on what to do with the third chaser. Rash? You're the best damned seeker this team has had in years. Will you be the newest Ravenclaw captain?" She asked, smiling at her friend slightly.

"Of course Chase," he took the small, shiny captain badge from her outstretched hand and pulled her into a tight hug, "I'll miss you Helena." he whispered into her ear, giving her a tiny peck on the cheek.

"I'll miss you too," she said, blinking the tears away from her eyes, "I'll miss all of you." she looked over to the lake and saw a familiar head of hair, "I have to go. Beat the shit out of them for me, okay?"

Her team nodded as they wiped away sad tears and she gave them all a hug, even the reserves. Helena took a deep breath before heading toward that familiar beech tree, where her friends were sitting and enjoying the nice day. She ducked under a low hanging branch and smiled sadly at the Marauders and Lily.

"Hey Lils," she whispered quietly.

Lily got up and hugged her best friend, "Hey Len. What's up?" she smiled at Helena and she couldn't help but return it.

"I have to talk to you." she said, grasping her hand lightly.

"Okay," James stood and gave Lily a quick kiss before the friends walked over to the edge of the lake, a good distance from most of the teens around them.

"Wonder what they're talking about." Remus strained his wolfish ears to hear the sound of Helena's voice just one more time as they continued to walk away from them.

"Dunno mate. Maybe Chase is asking if you had been talking about her lately." James said as he sat back down next to Sirius and Peter.

"I doubt it..." Remus mused as he watched Helena whisper something in Lily's ear and as Lily gasped in shock, looking back at him for a moment.

Then Helena bent down and whispered something else, making Lily burst into tears and throw her arms around the best friend she ever had. He noted that she was crying, but then saw with shock that Helena was crying as well. He pretended not to be looking at them as they walked back, but Helena caught it.

"Guys... I- I'm taking..." Helena started, but was cut off when Lily burst into tears and ran from the group, closely followed by a confused James, Peter, and Sirius.

A tear slipped down Helena's cheek as she watched Lily run away and Remus, gaining all of his courage, wiped it away, getting closer to her.

"What's wrong?" he asked, his deep auburn eyes looking into hers.

"Remus I- I'm," she sighed and tried to get the words to sound right, "I'm going to take the Exit Exams tomorrow and if I pass I can graduate early." Helena looked up and saw that Remus was struggling with something.

"Why?" he managed to say, his mouth suddenly as dry as the Sahara.

"Addison is making me. He wants to avoid a scandal here. Dumbledore wants me to stay but, I don't see that happening." Helena started to fiddle with her shirt, choosing to not look at Remus, but he hooked a finger under her chin and lifted it up.

"Scandal? Helena what's going on?" he pleaded.

She wanted to tell him everything. What she was, what she had inside of her, how it got inside of her, but she couldn't.

"I- I can't say. I'm sorry Remus, I'm so sorry." Helena let her tears fall in full force as she quickly kissed Remus on the lips before turning and running away.

Remus watched as Helena ran from him and he felt all of his emotions toward her bubble up inside of him. He didn't understand why she was leaving school; all he knew was that he didn't want her to go. He never wanted to be without her again. That kiss was all the proof he needed. He finally realized that he loved her more than life itself, and that he would rather die than live without her by his side.

Helena ran to her dormitory and locked herself in. She pulled out every textbook she had and piled them on her bed, getting ready for a study session. Helena grabbed all the notes she had taken since first year and began re-reading them, and looking things up in the books when she wasn't sure about something. She spent most of the night like this, until she finally passed out from exhaustion.

The next morning, Helena walked into the Charms classroom for the exams, still a little tired, but completely prepared. It had taken around four hours, but that was all Helena needed to complete every test.

Professor Flitwick came up to her after her last test and gave her a small hug, saying excitedly, "We will give you your scores at the end of tomorrow. Good luck my dear."

Helena smiled and exhaustedly trudged over to the kitchens. Everyone was at lunch by now, but she didn't want to enter the Great Hall. So many rumors had surfaced since she announced that she would be taking the exit tests that she couldn't stand to hear what their newest theory was.

Most of them consisted of her trying to get out early so she could get away from Remus, but that was a flat out lie. Anyone who knew her would know that she couldn't live without Rem. The last thing she wanted to do was leave him. Helena reached the painting of fruit and tickled the pear, laughing along as it squirmed and giggled. She quietly entered, but was almost instantly bombarded by tiny elves.

The smallest one out of the huge group dismissed them and Helena looked down at her favorite House Elf. She was different than the other elves because instead of dark brown eyes she had pale green ones. Her nose was as small as a button, and her toga was slightly pink instead of cream. Her Hogwarts pin gleamed proudly on her shirt and she smiled up at Helena excitedly.

"What can Shimmer do for Miss Chase?" she asked in a slightly high pitched voice.

"Hello Shimmer. I'd like something to eat please. Some pasta, chocolate ice cream with black olives, and some butterbeer please?" Helena asked the smiling elf.

"Of course Miss Chase! And would Miss Chase like to eat with Masters Black, Potter, Pettigrew, and Lupin?" Shimmer asked, her huge pale green eyes watched her gleefully.

"The Marauders are here?" Helena asked, looking around for them.

"Oh yes Miss. Please come with Shimmer." she grabbed Helena's hand and forcefully took her to a small table where all four Marauders sat. They put down their chicken and mashed potatoes and looked over at the blushing girl, Remus watching her more intently than the others.

"Hey guys. Well, um... I'll just go now." Helena turned to leave but felt someone grasp her hand and turn her around.

"Helena, what are you doing here?" Remus asked, leaning closer to her.

"I'm here to eat some lunch... Oh shit." Helena ran away from Remus and toward a sink where she let out the dinner she ate last night.

She felt someone rubbing her back and pulled the hair away from her face as she let out everything. She turned the faucet on and gargled some water before spitting it out and cleaning the sink. She turned around and saw Remus watching her worriedly.

"Helena, are you sick? We should get you to Pomfrey." he said, wiping some sweat from her forehead.

"No I'm fine, really. I just had a bad breakfast. Hey Shimmer." the little elf walked up to Helena and Remus with some plates in her arms.

"Is Miss alright? Shimmer is worried, very worried about Miss." she said, with wide eyes.

Helena smiled and nodded her head, "Yeah, I'm fine Shimmer. I just have some bad eating habits finally getting to me."

Shimmer nodded and went over to the now empty table that the Marauders had once occupied and placed the plates onto it.

Remus turned to Helena, "Did she have olives and ice cream with her?"

Helena looked at him shocked and said, "Yeah. A little guilty pleasure of mine unfortunately." she walked over to the table Shimmer had set up for her and sat down, Remus right beside her.

She began to eat, scarfing down everything almost completely at once. Helena looked up and saw Remus staring at her and she swallowed the mouthful she had been chewing.

"Sorry, I'm just really hungry." she whispered as she blushed slightly.

"I would be too if I was locked in a classroom for four hours." he said chuckling, and Helena continued to eat, although it was a lot slower, with some blushing put in as well.

After finishing up a plate of pasta and her ice cream Helena drank the rest of her butterbeer, choosing not to look at Remus' shocked face.

"Is that all that Shimmer can do for Miss?" Shimmer asked, as she stood by Helena's knee.

"Yeah. Thanks a lot Shimmer." The small elf curtsied and skipped off to wash dishes or do some other House Elf chore. Helena stood up to leave and Remus stood with her.

"I'll walk you to your dorm." he said, and the ex-couple walked in a comfortable silence, "When do you get the results back?" he asked, his hands behind his back as he walked.

"Tomorrow. At least that's what Professor F. told me." Helena stopped in front of the statue that led to the Ravenclaw common room and turned to face Remus, "Thanks for everything Remus. You're the best."

Helena leaned forward and kissed his cheek before whispering the password. Remus pulled Helena back to him and wiped away the tears that had fallen down her face.

"Helena, please tell me what's going on." He said, his forehead pressed against hers.

"I can't..." She sobbed out, tears flowing freely and fast down her cheeks.

"Shh. Helena I- I lo-"

"Chase!" Helena turned around and saw that her whole house was in the common room, making a huge mess.

No textbooks were in sight and all she could see were party streamers, punch bowls, and a few drunken prefects. They were having a party. An actual party. For her.

"Goodnight Helena." she heard Remus whisper in her ear before he leaned down and kissed her cheek.

"Remus I-" Helena sighed and hugged Remus close, "Night."

Helena walked into the crowded common room and smiled at her housemates. They had moved all of the furniture and book cases to the side to make room for a huge dance floor and a magical jukebox. Helena didn't really feel like doing anything. She was usually up to partying all of the time, but now... now she felt like crying.

She walked around the crowded room and mingled and said goodbye to everyone she knew before she walked up the girls staircase and crashed onto her bed. Helena got up and packed her things while silently saying goodbye to everything she had grown accustomed to seeing for the past seven years. When she was finished she fell onto her bed and snuggled into the dark blue covers for one last time, falling into a troubled sleep a few minutes later.

Helena woke up later than everyone else the next day, and as soon as she did she felt her stomach twist into knots. Which made her even later since she was leaned over a toilet bowl for another half hour. After brushing her teeth and taking a shower Helena walked down to the common room, where she found all of her teachers there to meet her.

Professor Flitwick walked up to her and gave her a small hug before handing her an envelope. Helena smiled and looked at it before opening it. She smiled as she read it, tears forming at the corners of her eyes.

Helena Lobo

Graduate of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Class of 1977

Helena let her tears fall as she hugged each professor twice and gave Headmaster Dumbledore a peck on the cheek. She did it. Now she could go and have the baby without worrying about the Minister or about what her friends would say. Although Lily already said that she suspected that she was a werewolf, but never thought it would have been appropriate to ask.

Helena smiled at her professors and thanked them again, before she ran to her room and grabbed her trunk, dragging it down to the common room.

"You're father will be waiting for you at Kings Cross when you arrive." Flitwick said as he hugged her again.

"You told him?" she asked, and they all nodded, "Everything?" they nodded again, "He's going to kill me." she sighed sadly.

"No Helena. He is actually quite proud." Dumbledore said smiling down at her.

"For what? Getting knocked up during a full moon?" she asked sardonically.

Dumbledore chuckled and shook his head, "No. He's proud that he's going to be a grandfather, and that his daughter was the first in fifty years to pass the Exit Examinations with one to zero questions wrong." he smiled at Helena's shocked face and nodded, "You have an hour before you have to meet us by the gates Helena. Do what you have to and don't be late."

Helena said thank you once more before she left the Ravenclaw common room for the last time. When she stepped onto the sunny grounds Helena felt more refreshed than ever. Her stomach was back to normal and her spirits were high. Today she was going to tell Remus everything. And if he didn't love her anymore... at least she stopped lying to him.

Helena meandered slowly to their usual sitting spot, smiling and saying goodbye to people along the way. When she reached Lily and the Marauders Lily instantly looked up and ran to Helena, arms wide open, but stopped a few feet away from her before hugging her softly.

"You know, it'll be a while before you hurt him by hugging me." Helena whispered in her friend’s ear.

Lily pulled away and looked at her, "Him?"

"Yeah, I found out last night." she said, smiling from ear to ear. She was happy. Honestly, truly, happy. And even though she doesn't know who the father is, she could care less because... well... she's so damn happy.

"Oh Len! I'm going to miss you so much!" Lily whispered as they hugged again, tears flowing freely down both girls' cheeks.

"Lilsie? Would you... would you like to be his godmother?" Lily squealed and hugged Helena tighter.

"Of course!" the two girls pulled away from each other and Helena looked at the Marauders. A large gap between Sirius and James filled Helena up with a sudden feeling of loneliness.

"Where's Remus?" The Marauders looked around nervously and Sirius bravely answered her question.

"He's in his room. He said he's not coming out." Sirius looked down, ashamed of his friend. He was too much of a coward to tell her how he felt about her, and now she was leaving, and he'd never be able to tell her. Sometimes Remus was an idiot.

"Oh." Helena whispered, a silent, lonesome tear slid down her face and she stared at the ground, "Well, tell him goodbye for me." she hugged each Marauder and gave Sirius a little peck on the cheek, "Give that to him too."

She gave Lily one last squeeze before she left them. After wiping away the tears she felt falling down her face, Helena looked up to find a pair of familiar black haired heads sitting underneath a shady tree.

She sat besides them quietly, and said, "I'll probably miss you two the most."

Rashid and Severus whipped around to see her crying slightly. The three friends stood and hugged each other for several minutes.

"You'll always be the best captain Ravenclaw could ever have." Rash whispered as a tear left his brown eyes.

"And the best non-Slytherin friend I have. Besides Rashid." Severus added as Rash gave him a dirty look.

"Shit. I have to go." she hugged them again and wiped away the last of her tears, "I love you guys."

"Love you too." they said together as their best friend left them forever.

Helena walked toward the gates of Hogwarts, their iron wrought bars visible from the desolate space she had cut through. The path was crowded with students and she was tired of seeing them point at her and mock her so she decided to have some privacy as she left her second home. The wooded area gave her a sense of comfort, but also a sudden feeling of foreboding. Something wasn't right in this place. It was dark, hardly any light coming through the tree leaves.

And there was no sound. No sound whatsoever. There were no birds, no crickets, nothing except the muffled crunch of her footsteps on the needled ground. She faintly heard a twig snap and turned fast, seeing nothing in the dark shadows of the trees. But she could hear something besides her breathing.

Helena grasped her wand and turned fast, throwing a curse. But it didn't hit it's target. Instead another curse hit her. Helena was flung into the air and tossed into a tree trunk, her back coming into contact with the rough bark. She winced in pain as she stood and faced her attacker.

"Finalmente le tengo todo a me." (Finally I have you all to myself.) A deep voice said from the shadows. Helena would know that voice anywhere.

"Jorge." she managed to say, rubbing her back lightly.

Helena heard a throaty laugh and winced at it's cruelness, "Do you know how long I've waited for this moment?" he asked his wand and her wand in his hands as he circled her like a vulture.

"To do what Jorge?" Helena asked irritably.

"This." he stated simply before casting an Unforgivable, "Crucio!"

Helena fell to the floor, trying hard not to scream. She writhed in pain, grasping her stomach as she twitched and tried to fight it. Minutes flew by and seemed like eons as she lay there panting. Jorge got tired of just using the curse and decided to use a few muggle methods of torture.

Helena screamed in pain as Jorge continued to kick her in the stomach. She didn't know how long he had been doing this but it was doing its damage. She prayed the baby would be okay, and she wished with all her heart that Jorge would just drop down and die. But suddenly he stopped and Helena felt something wet come from her body. She looked down and gasped when she saw blood running from her legs and watched as Jorge ran away before she fainted.

"Oh my God! Poppy! She's awake!" a familiar voice yelled from Helena's side, "Lena? Honey? Baby, can you hear me? It's Daddy." she felt a rough hand grasp her hand and Helena smiled slightly.

"Daddy?" she whispered, her lips parched and cracked.

"Yes Honey. Oh Merlin... who did this to you?"

Helena opened her eyes and her fathers figure sat beside her. He tightened his grip on her hand and Helena smiled as the scent of flowers and pine trees filled her nose. Her fathers bright hazel eyes were swimming with tears and his brown hair was disheveled from sleeping on a chair all night. It was strange to Helena, seeing her father, who is usually so composed and straight forward a complete wreck beside her. Though it was strange it was comforting knowing that he was there all the time. She had missed her dad dearly.

"Jorge. Jorge Gutierrez. He's a seventh year Slytherin." she whispered.

Helena looked up and saw that along with her father, Madam Pomfrey, her teachers, and the Headmaster were gathered around her bed. Professor Slughorn stood from his seat and left, saying that he would get Jorge and tell him that he was officially expelled from school.

She looked at Pomfrey with worry and whispered, "How's the baby?"

The adults looked at each other and Helena's father squeezed her hand. She tried to get a straight answer, but none of them would look her in the eye. She screamed at them and demanded to know what happened, so Pomfrey quietly told her as tears leaked through the woman’s eyes.

"I'm sorry dear. But the baby is gone."

Helena looked around numbly before she asked, "When can I leave?"

A/N: oh no! poor Helena! sorry for the wait guys! I hope you liked this one! The last chapter is next! r/r
