My name is Juliet Anna Potter. I'm James Potter's twin sister. Life has always been pretty normal for me. That is, until my friend Sirius decided to play matchmaker for my brother and Lily.

Chapter 22: What Next??

I wanted to make things better but I had ended up making them worse. But you didn’t think I would never blow up now did you? But after I yelled at him, we didn’t even look at each other. I was angry and so was he. And what was more was that Lily and James were avoiding each other too. And Sirius and I were avoiding each other. And Sirius and James were avoiding each other. And boy was this avoiding business getting highly complicated for Remus and Kia. And Peter decided to remain quiet and walk by himself so he was in the clear.


One day after Transfiguration, Lily banged into James. You would think it would have been over with a sorry or maybe a glare and walking past. But no way was it over with that. Not with these two.




“And well after that Petunia… - Ow!” Lily had banged into somebody and she pushed her hair off her face and looked up at the person she had banged into, a sorry on her lips that died short when she looked up at my brother. I was trying to pull Lily away to avoid a scene in the middle of the corridor but she just glared up at him, refusing to budge. I dared to look up at James expression and for once saw some tenderness in them… a longing… a sort of wistfulness when he was looking at Lily. I don’t think Lily saw that because if she had she would have melted… but I noticed that look and a strange, cold feeling gripped my heart. And this voice at the back of my head told me it was my entire fault. I was starting to hate that really unhelpful voice.


“What do you think you are doing?” said Lily, in an unnecessarily loud voice. And I knew without even looking at her that she had noticed. The catch in her voice told me that she had noticed that look in his eyes.


“W-walking! What else?” he replied, scoffing. And after that there was a pause as they looked at each other. And then James just walked away without a word. I noticed that Remus was not with him and wondered where he was. But I didn’t mull over that too much for I was too focused on Lily right now. She was just staring blankly at the spot James had left. And without another word she swept in the opposite direction, her head nevertheless held high.


I ran after James. To hell with pride. It was making everyone around me miserable. If swallowing my pride as of now helped in peaceful coexistence then it was very well worth it. But just as I caught up with him, I saw that somebody else already had.


I looked up and suddenly felt highly conscious of the fact that the corridor seemed very bare, save for a couple of first years scurrying down. James tried to push past him but he kept blocking James’ path until he was forced to acknowledge him.


“Look-”  started James, glaring at Sirius.


“Before you say anything, I just wanted to tell you that Juliet and I broke up!” said Sirius looking at James, “we… we are not going out anymore…” James raised his eyebrows slightly and looked at me. And me? I didn’t know what to say. I couldn’t bring myself to tell him that I wasn’t going out with Sirius anymore. I just couldn’t! And the worst part was that I wanted to cry right there. So I flung my hair forward to hide my eyes from James as I replied, “Yes… h-he’s right!” I can hide my face but James would have to be an idiot not to notice the thickness in my voice and the slight sniff I gave to keep my tears in.


But then I was suddenly experiencing a rush of joy. Maybe after this, things will be ok. I wouldn’t have known what exactly to tell James. And Sirius had sort of saved me the trouble of thinking. He wouldn’t be angry with any of us now. And everything would go back to normal. Well, almost normal in my case… for I was going to have to live in a world where I would never kiss Sirius again.


“What the hell do you mean?” thundered James, glaring straight at Sirius and I looked up from my thoughts to see what had caused James to be angry now.


“We are not going out anymore!” said Sirius, a little warily this time.


“So you proved me right now didn’t you?” thundered James. Sirius took a step back and my hand went around my wand immediately.


“James-” I started forebodingly when James rounded on me.


“Don’t you tell me you’re ok with this because I know you’re not! This was exactly why I didn’t want you to date her!” he said rounding on Sirius again, “I knew you would break up with her and break her heart!”


But-” protested Sirius.


Wait a minute. Did I miss something here?


“How dare you date my sister and then leave her to deal with her emotions while you happily frit away with another girl!”


Did James just say what I thought he said?


“Hey!” cut in Sirius, “Its not easy for me to do this ok! If u want to know its all your fault. Juliet is the first girl I have actually cared about! And its because of you that she wanted to break up with me!”


“Whoa!” I said stepping forward, rounding on Sirius, “you broke up with me remember?”


“Only because I knew you were going to break up with me and I couldn’t hear the words out of your mouth. So I decided to say them instead and save us from a load of pain!”


“Well you called us a mistake!”


“That was only because James made us feel like it was a crime!”


At this point both of us rounded on James who was breathing so hard that his glasses were balanced on the tip of his nose.


“I didn’t know you actually liked my sister! Its not like the two of you have the best dating reputation! I know how Sirius makes the girls feel about him and I know how Juliet is a huge flirt. And well in a way I didn’t want either of you to get hurt. And I was sure it would happen. I couldn’t bear to see my sister hurt by my best friend or vice versa!”


“But you can't control us James!” I said, “I mean we can handle our own feelings!”


“I know you guys can! But what will happen when you guys fight? And I’m supposed to take sides!”


“ho! So all this big deal was because you dint want to get in the middle?” accused Sirius, sounding mad.


“No!” said James, “I just hate the idea of Juliet dating and well if it was with you of all the people, I have all the more reason to feel protective and you know that!” said James, to which Sirius remained silent.


“Listen to me James. I’m 16. If you can take care of yourself so can I. And even if I can’t I’ll learn to.” Suddenly I was able to think a lot clearer after figuring out that the whole thing was a misunderstanding.


“Listen to me James, I care about Juliet… a lot! I’ll take care of her the best I can…”


“Wait a minute, I won't be taken care of… we are on an equal level here!” I said indignantly.


“Listen to her James,” said Sirius, “ this is how she is! And this is why I love her!”


There was a big silence. It took a while for Sirius’ words to sink in.


“You love me?” I whispered, breaking the silence.


“I- I …” Sirius stammered not meeting my eyes, “it just got out… I mean … I wasn’t thinking… I” he case a nervous look at James. “Look! I can't do this with you glaring at me like this!” he said frowning at James.


“I didn’t tell you that you could do this!” replied James, way too calmly for me to really be at ease with the situation. My head was spinning.


“B…but-” asked Sirius confusedly.


“Well…” and there was a pause where James sighed as though he was preparing for something, “I guess it wouldn’t be that bad after all…”
