Chapter 16: Is it Jealousy? Or plain...

This morning when I had barely entered the common room, Sirius caught hold of my wrist and pulled me into a corner –

“What?” I asked.

“Juliet… remember the advice you gave me yesterday…”

“Did it work?” I asked, cutting him off accidentally.

“Well, I can't say yet. I still have to talk to h- I mean the friend.”

“Great then!” I said walking away. He caught hold of me and pulled me back, falling further into shadows. I was irresistible reminded of last night. Ok, I am not going to lie to you. I dreamt a lot last night. And a lot of that lot was about Sirius. And a lot of that lot of that lot involved him kissing me. There is seriously something wrong with me.

“You don’t understand… you are the friend I was talking about…” I did not see that coming.

“Me? Why? We are fine… we never had a fight.”

“We might after I tell you what I am going to!”

“Shoot!” I said confused.

“Sirius?” we both turned to see Remus looking suspiciously at the two of us, “What are you two…” he then gave Sirius a significant look.

“Its nothing Remus,” said Sirius in a warning tone.

“Hey Remus-” James said coming up to Remus, “Sirius! Juliet?” he asked frowning immediately.

“You don’t seem too happy to see me!” I said folding my hands across my chest and glaring at James.

“Not here… with…” he said frowning at Sirius. Sirius looked uncomfortable about something.

“Actually… umm… I was talking to Juliet!” said Remus, “we were talking about… full moon… in 2 days…” said Remus hurriedly.

“Yea… I was just telling Juliet about… transforming and stuff…” said Sirius. I just nodded along.

“You are going to have to trust him James. He is your best friend!” said Remus looking at James.


“No buts. You guys are best friends. And you can't let something this small-”

“Small?” started James indignantly.

“- come between you!” continued Remus ignoring James.

“He is right!” said Lily quietly from his side. She had quietly joined us, “I don’t know what the deal is but Remus makes sense… and well, he is never wrong…” she said and kissed James lightly.

“Ok…” said James and turned to Sirius, “wanna plan the next trick?”

I guess that was James’ way of making up. Boys!

“Hey!” said Lily hitting James on the arm.

“Or sometime Lily is not around!” he said kissing her. They were so cute together. James and Lily set of in front of us and I lagged behind with Remus and Sirius.

“What’s the deal with all this?” I asked them.

“No-Nothing…” said Sirius. I was not going to take this for an answer. I gave him a long hard look.

“All right,” he sighed, “James seems to think that I … I like you.”

I raised my eyebrows in shock. And I started blushing.

“And I am out of here!” said Remus shrugging awkwardly and walking ahead. I wanted to walk ahead too but I was too shocked to move.

“Do you?” I asked finally, and my voice was slightly squeaky.

“I… No- uh – do you… uhmm…” he looked at me discomfited. He kind of looked cute like that. I don’t know what I did what I did next. It may have been the butterflies in my stomach or the effect of my dreams last night or the plain fact that he was looking so adorable today. I supported my hands on his shoulder to lean over. And kissed him on the lips.

It was small. A light brushing of my lips on his. But all the firecrackers went off behind my eyes this time. Sirius caught hold of me around my waist and pulled me closer to deepen the kiss. And I don’t know how long we were there kissing each other. I liked it. It was the best feeling I had ever had my entire life. Sirius was so gentle and so soft… a burst of emotions raced through my heart. I felt a surge of attraction for him at that moment. I slipped my hands behind his neck and pulled him closer.

“Juliet, is that you?” I jumped away instantly, feeling guilty. I saw Kia staring at me and Sirius in turn. Now I was horrified. I don’t believe that I, of my own accord, kissed Sirius black passionately (Ok I did it one before but that was kind of a compulsion) and found that I had some feelings for him.

“Umm… yea - uh – yea…” said Sirius and hurried away. I was left looking anywhere but at Kia.

“I told you this would happen!” she said.

I just walked away not really listening to what she was saying about how this was a very bad idea. All I could think about was the kiss.


“Hello Juliet!” I was walking out of History of magic with my friends and I heard Kirk calling me.

“Hey Kirk!” I said. He pulled me away from the others. I noticed all of them lag back to listen to what was going on. I also noticed Sirius frown slightly as Kirk leaned in to kiss me.

“what’s up?” I asked him.

“I am so sorry but I have to work next Hogsmeade weekend,” he said really looking it. He was so cute. Tall, blonde with grey eyes and a pleasant, smiling face, Kirk was really handsome. And I liked him a lot too. I was too caught up with this Lily-James match making thing to actually think about other guys. But I have always had this little crush on Kirk and ever since he asked me out 4 weeks ago, though it hasn’t come up lately, I have been thinking about him. Thoughts about Sirius popped in my head much later. And will go away. Soon. Hopefully.

“Well that’s too bad!” I said, genuinely disappointed.

“How about I make it up with you? Say lunch, tomorrow?”

“Why not today?”

“I have a meeting with the head girl!”

“Just the head girl?” I asked frowning.

“Yea the two of us have some things to do.”

“Things huh?” I frowned even more. Somehow I did not like the thought of that.

“Are you jealous?” he asked teasingly and leaned in suggestively.

“No!” I said grudgingly just before he kissed me. I will admit it to you. It was a good kiss. I have dated him before and we never renewed it after the holidays. But I have forgotten how it was to kiss him. But now it all came back to me. He was a really good kisser. “But I will be jealous if you will do that every time I am.”

“Cya in the common room!” he said laughing and walking away. I could feel 3 pairs of frowning eyes and 2 pairs of normal ones following me as I walked towards them.

“So feelings coming back huh?” asked Lily.

“Could be!” I said blushing.

“Why are you meeting him for lunch?” asked Kia significantly.

“Because I like him!” I said in a warning tone.

“You two are so cute together!” said Remus.

“Who was that?” asked James. We all turned to him and raised our eyebrows.

“Kirk Linclon.” I said patiently. He kept frowning at me and so I said, “Get over it bro. Your little sister dates!” James nodded and I knew he was not fully convinced. He was never fully convinced but at least he shrugged it away and walked with Lily, questioning her about Kirk. Good luck to her!

There was still one person who had not yet spoken. I looked at him and he was still frowning.

“So you… you are jealous about him and that … head girl … huh?”

“I was joking. He wouldn’t do that!”

“You never know! He could be another Sirius!” That comment kind of brought me to my senses. All the things I had been feeling for Sirius in the past 8 weeks of the whole Lily-James matching thing flew out because Sirius was not the commitment kind of person. And I am the person who likes to be committed in a relationship. And I was feeling angry with myself for feeling like that about Sirius.

“Well he is not like you! He likes to have serious relationships!”

“Are you saying I don’t?”

“When did the question of you come up at all?”


“Forget it! Why are you being such a prick about this? I am not your girlfriend. I will date whoever I want to and you cannot do anything about that.” Saying this I turned around and walked away. Sirius caught up with me.

“You can't walk out like that!” he said.

“I thought I just did!”

“Well why do you have to date anyway?" he asked. I turned around to face him.

“Listen, I have had just 2 boyfriends in this whole life out of which one is fake. The other one is Kirk who is nice and whom I have liked for a long time. I am not going to screw this up all right! so back off and stop behaving like a jealous-”

“I am not JEALOUS! I am just looking out for you!”

“Well, don’t!” I yelled and stormed away. I do not believe the nerve of him. It was almost like he didn’t want me to date anyone else… was that really how he was feeling? Or is that how I want him to feel? Ok… this is getting to confusing… focus on Kirk… focus… his handsome face and his great eyes… hmm… Sirius has such long eyelashes… NO! its Kirk here…. Not Sirius…Kirk… Sirius…
