Chapter 1: Slugs have 4 noses.
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]



Did you know that Honeybees have a type of hair on their eyes?
I wonder if they ever suffer from severe cases of conjunctivitis, it wouldn't surprise me really. Constantly buzzing from flower to flower the way they did must mean they picked up some sort of bacteria now and again.

I wonder, maybe the bees here had some amazing magical abilities I didn't know about, something quite unique, that no other bee possessed.
They would have to be quite careful though, I don't believe the ordinary bees would be too pleased, they might become dangerously jealous and do something rash.
Like begin a bee war, then where would we be. After all the bees had fought each other, the bee population would be severely lessened, and slowly the bees left, traumatised by the horrible battle would certainly begin to commit horrible bee suicide.

No that wouldn't be good at all, I really do hope the bees here weren't extraordinary in any way, the outcome would be undoubtedly tragic.

"To bee or not to bee, that is the question" I giggled at my own humour.

Of course this attracted the normal amount of worried glances and snickers from my peers, I had grown accustomed to the way people looked at me, as if I myself was from another plant, as if I were off-the-wall.

I couldn't say I disagreed, I wasn't what you would call a mainstream kind of girl, but I didn't view myself as odd. Singular maybe, and whimsical I liked to think.

I smiled to myself, it was rather amusing the way the social ladder worked. If anyone higher than myself acted the way I did, it would be accepted in no time.
Me being who I am however was not.

I glanced around the great hall, watching the students carefully, I received a few odd stares from the ones I'd observed for a second too long, I smiled and glanced toward the great wooden doors. Hoping to see a friendly face.
I was sadly disappointed when Jacinta Hornbury's golden head appeared, followed by a trail of pathetic drooling males. With their tongues out they way they were a strong image of Jacinta and a posse of skinks presented itself in my mind, I chuckled
to myself quietly.

"What's so funny?" a familiar voice whispered in my ear.

I jumped slightly, smiling I put a hand to my heart.

"Honestly Cassie, your going to kill me one day!" I said , reaching for a buttered scone.

"Queen of the melodramatic, how lovely it is to see you, may I be of service?" Cassie said, attempting to curtsy but failing miserably.

I grinned "Yes actually, you can tell me when you started to fancy Remus Lupin."

Cassie's face went an assortment of colours in the next few seconds, finally ending on a delightful pomegranate, delicious.

"You say a word and I will curse you into oblivion, are we clear?" She said, surprisingly calmly.

"Crystal" I smiled knowingly.

"It doesnt even matter, he barley knows I exist"

"That's bull-rubbish Cassie! You've spoken before I've seen you!" I exclaimed, trying hard to brighten her mood.

"Twice Alex, twice in six years." Cassie said digging her fingernails into the aged wooden table and sighing dramatically.

"Yes but it's the conversation quality that counts Cas!"

"He asked me if my name was Amber, and the second time asked me for a spare quill, combined that doesn't even equal a quarter of a conversation Alex!" She exclaimed loudly, causing a few people to turn, when realising it was us they promptly continued their own conversations.

"Give it time, you've got plenty to offer him, your pretty, intelligent, funny.."

"Rubbish, don't give me that Alex, you know as well as I do I'm nothing special" she turned abruptly and began to fill her empty plate.

It always annoyed me how difficult Cassie could be, she was constantly putting herself down. I tried time and time again to convince her she was brilliant but every attempt either ended up in her in a raging mood or her simply choosing not to talk to me for a good hour or two. Quite juvenile really.

The most annoying part was how obviously wrong she was about her self, she was Intelligent. Excellent in every subject, perhaps not care of magical creatures, but who was! Cassie was constantly making me laugh, she seemed to be the only one who ever tried. Last but not least she was pretty, gorgeous in fact! She just tended to be more modest and hid her figure under extra large school robes, her hair was to die for, falling below her shoulders in sandy blonde waves. She tied her gorgeous locks back in messy braids, and hid her cornfield blue eyes and perfect skin behind a book.

I envied her good looks, so you can imagine how pissed off she made me when she denied it.

I rested my chin on my palm and picked up a stray spoon, spinning it around until I could just see my reflection, I was so bland it almost brought me to tears sometimes. I grinned, the spoon enlarged my nose and mouth, and bended them in the most hilarious way I had to laugh.

My very ordinary appearance brought me back from my happy place, brown shoulder length and unfortunately out of control today. Blue eyes, ordinary again. I guess I had rather clear skin, not that great of an achievement. Lips, too big for my face.  What I would give for Cassie's golden waves.
I was suddenly brought out of my sulking by a light tap on the shoulder, I looked to my left.
Oh lord, not now, not now. Of course this would happen to me, I looked a mess!

"Hey Alex, mind if I sit? "  said the most angelic voice I'd ever heard.

"Urm, well I u-um, yea" I managed to say somehow.

Mitchel Underwood, Cassie's older brother. Seventh year, Hufflepuff keeper and extremely undeniably gorgeous.

"Have a good break?" he asked, a bit delayed considering school had begun again a week and a half ago.

"Yea average, you?" I said, drooling ever so subtly.

"Awesome thanks, didn't see you around much" He looked up at me with those gorgeous blue eyes and I almost melted right then and there.

"Oh, my family and I were vacationing in Italy" I said, quickly glancing over at Cassie. She caught my eye and then noticed her brother sitting, oh so close to me. Her eyes rolled and she turned back to her conversation with Fetina Hopson a kind Latino girl also in Gryffindor.

"Ah, that will be why then, well we missed you" He smiled looking at me through his gorgeous eyelashes.

I let out the most horrific noise, something between a giggle and a snort and turned a bright shade of red.

"Your such a character Alex, I've gotta run, see you later" and with that he was gone.

"Your so pathetic." Cassie laughed through a mouthful of cornflakes.

"Shut Up!" I rose to my feet, grabbed my bag and gave Cassie a well deserved punch on the arm.

"Bfitch!" She spluttered through her food.

Her face became even more enraged when I pulled the finger and walked out.
Cassie was soon to follow me, I suspect she didn't want to walk to Potions alone.
The corridors were becoming increasingly noisy as students finished breakfast and  made their way unhappily to classes. A few, who seemed to be on the same route as us, looked very unimpressed by the lack of light as we came closer to the dungeons, it was after all beautiful weather out.

"Maybe I'll swallow something foul and you'll have to escort me to the hospital wing, this is ridiculous! Double potions, and first thing on a Monday too !" She complained loudly.

"Stop feeling sorry for yourself, honestly Cassie it's not that bad, we've got a double free straight after lunch!" I frowned, feeling rather fed up with her whining.

"I know, jeez, sorry then" Cassie snapped, folding her arms in a huff.

I wasn't really mad with her, there was simply nothing better to do that wind her up.
We entered potions a few minutes earlier than the rest of the class, Cassie choose the table at the back of the class, near the storage cupboards. I plonked down beside her and buried my head in my arms. I must have dozed off, I lifted my head to find class had already begun and every one was already well under way with the assigned potion. Cassie, being the brilliant friend she was, was working effortlessly over both her own potion and mine.

"I love you" I said gazing at her with awe filled eyes.

"Ew, don't go all gaga on me Alex, it makes me nauseous."

"Sorry won't happen again" I grinned, sitting up I helped Cassie add the required amount of ground bat fangs to the potions, Which soon after bubbled softly and changed from a murky red to a light pink. I began to stir, gazing deep into the cauldrons frothing contents. It was quite mind numbing.

"Hey can you go grab some more eye of newt?" Cassie said looking up " I've run out".

"Sure thing" I hopped to my feet, and took a few steps toward the table that was stocked with ingredients. Finding the Eye of Newt I spun around on my heel, only to be smacked right in the face by someones out stretched hand, this sudden jolt caused me spill the ingredients I was clutching all over me. I finished all this off with a less than elegant tumble to the very hard, very cold floor.

This so far had been the most exciting day all term. I was not surprised when I heard the class erupt in maniacal laughter, neither when I heard soon after the taunts I had grown accustomed to. The next bit however I did not expect, was the feeling of the two rather large hands that grasped me by the arms and heaved me onto my feet.

"Are you ok ? " asked the concerned voice of Remus Lupin.

"You haven't any peanut butter cups have you? " I murmured through slightly parted lips.

"Urm. No I don't think I do sorry?" He replied, his eye brows raised in a confused fashion.

"Oh well, that's no good then is it? " I said, still rather dizzy from my encounter with a stray hand and then the floor.

"Yes, um here let me help you, Amber right? " He asked, supporting my weight and helping me to my seat.

"Alex, and thanks" I muttered.

"Alex, sorry I really am terrible with names" He said smiling apologetically.

"What in the bloody hell.." Cassie trailed off, her eyes full of envy and Remus sat me down.

"I didn't mean to hit her, she popped up out of no where" he explained, ruffling his sandy blonde locks.

Cassie nodded, and smiled appreciatively
"Thanks Remus" she said, examining me closely.

"No problem Cas" He smiled, dimples and all.

Cassie glanced at me as soon as he returned his seat and mouthed, " He called me Cas!"

I beamed " Told you to give it time!"

Potions flew by, Cassie ecstatic the whole way through. I stood and gathered my things together, packing my books into by already bursting bag and tucking my quill behind my ear. Cassie was out the door so quickly I didn't notice until the door had almost closed. I rushed after her, in my haste, bumping into two rather tall classmates.

"Watch where your going freak!"

James Potter and Sirius Black pushed past me, knocking my bag to the floor and sending the contents flying. I bit my lip and knelt to gather my belongings. If it wasn't for their good looks there would be nothing remotely good about Black and Potter at all. I honestly couldn't fathom how they became so popular among the girls at Hogwarts, who wanted someone who was sure to treat you like dirt? Then again, I wasn't really like any of the other girls at Hogwarts was I? Though I wished it all the time it seemed no matter how hard I tried to fit in I just couldn't.

I jumped as someone knelt down beside me, looking up I saw the face of my saviour, it seemed he'd come out late. How pathetic I must look to him right now, I wished the ground would open up and swallow me whole. Unfortunately the universe hated me so that wish was left unanswered.

"Need a hand? " he asked, reaching for some loose parchment.

"Thanks. Again. " I said, blushing at my own pathetic existence.

"No worries, listen about Sirius and James, they're not really like that trust me." He said.

"Now isn't the best time Remus" I said standing up with my belongings now in order.

"I know, It's jus-"

"I really have to go, sorry." I said bluntly, why I was being so rude to him I had no idea, probably just because my day had been shitty so far, to say the least.

"Hold up!" he said " I'm sorry, look come to lunch with me, and bring Cassie too" he said, his cheeks slightly pink as he said Cassie's name.

She would love me for ever if I accepted. I had Charms homework that needed doing.

"You know what..Yes, count us in" I said smiling at his relieved face.

"Cool, I'll catch you then" He said grinning. He waved and ran down the corridor to catch up with his friends.

A/N: Hey I know this wasn't anything special, I just wanted to introduce you to some of the OC, this is a Sirius/OC. Do not panic it will develop further!
I will also start to bring in the Original characters in the next chapter eg. Lilly, James, Sirius, Peter and others. Awesome, so thanks for reading and leave me a review, add to favourites, whatever floats your boat.













Chapter 2: Cherries and Crushed nuts!
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

A/N: Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen!! Guten Tag, Hola!! This is chapter two of
I am Alexandra Jane. Sit back, read away and Enjoy!


Disclaimer: I ran quickly away from the Ninja Lawyers, throwing cookies behind me in hopes of distracting them. One or two stopped to pick up the baked goodies I had left behind. I ran into an abandoned building, searching for a good place to hide. I found none. I turned putting up my hands, or Llama hooves I should say.

"Ok ! I don't own it !" I yelled in hopes of saving myself from these vile beings.
To my surprise they turned and walked away. Taking my beloved cookies with them...

In other words..I don't own anything...








 Chapter two.
Cherries and crushed nuts on top!?


Cassie Underwood






To be honest I don't quite know what compelled me to ruffle Remus Lupin's hair.
I guess it just seemed like the appropriate thing to do at that point in time.
Of course nothing I do is appropriate these days though is it now !
No i can't even ruffle a fellow students hair without receiving 'Is she insane!' stares.

Oh well it can't be helped now can it!

"Ah hello Alex, Cassie!" Remus smiled brightly to us. He gestured to the empty seats on either side of him and then took a large bite of the chicken he had in his hand. I watched him eat with interest, counting how many times he chewed before swallowing his food. You could learn quite a bit about a person by the way that they chose to eat their food.

Remus for example chewed a total of eight times before swallowing. Eight, and even number. Sturdy, reliable guy, simple but if you halved him far enough you would find he had some self esteem issues, and that he liked plum pudding every so often..although it seemed he got rather bad gas from the stuff!

I snapped out of my own thoughts and tried to tune in on the conversation that seemed to be flowing quite comfortably between Cassie and Remus.

"I heard they call them Radios, funny name really!" Cassie said laughing lightly.

" Yes, it is! How muggles cope I have no idea!" Remus said back, his voice almost cracking with enthusiasm.

"Well I suppose they don't know any different, it's easier to cope if you don't know what your coping without" She said to him, leaning forward a pinch, I could almost see the hormones rushing about, I laughed loudly at the thought.

"What's so hilarious ? " Remus asked, eye brow raised curiously.

"Oh, nothing Remus. I was simply laughing for the fun of it!" I said humorously, tapping my fingers on my empty plate.

"Oh well ok then?". I was such a fool, my cheeks burned crimson and I hid behind my hair.

"Remus!Where h..." awkward pause. " Hi there, I'm James, don't believe we've met" Potter's voice said to my left.

"Oh hi, no I'm Cassie an-"

"Jamie! Remie We..."

Well this was fun, it seemed that Potter and Black were rather surprised when they strode over to their usual places on the table, only to find Remus hadn't bothered to save them. Instead he sat with two odd girls they hadn't spoken too before.
To be honest I don't think they noticed me at all, they were far more interested in Cassie. I decided then and there I didn't really fancy the situation, so with all the elegance I could muster I slipped from my seat.

"Um, Alex. Hello! Where are you going?"

Shit.

"Uh, youknowumfibbleiwantedtoumseehim?" Fail.

"Sit down Alex, your making no sense!" Cassie exclaimed, the boys looked on quite amused by my stupidity.

"Oh, um ok" And with that I was forced to sit once again. I said nothing for the entire lunch hour, instead I sat absorbed
in my thoughts while the other four talked with ease.

It had always been like this with Cassie and I. She was the pretty one, the social one. Everyone liked Cassie, she wasn't the most popular girl in the school, but everyone liked her. I on the other hand, had three friends. Cassie, Lilly Evans, and
I'd like to think Mitchel as well. Mitchel, the name that sent my heart galloping like a horse, my stomach spinning like a ballerina..and a longer list of corny similes continues here. I did not consider myself attractive at all really, in the past six years I had dated only two boys.

One, a Ravenclaw called Joshua, a narcissistic prat who I swear suffered from disgusting narcissistic fantasies. The other, a quiet Hufflepuff lad who went by the name of Aaron. He was lovely, but I couldn't get within ten metres of the guy without him turning a bright scarlet and quickly walking in the other direction.
All in all I could honestly say I had never gained much experience in 'that' area. Joshua and I had snogged a few times, but apart from that. Nothing. Zilch. Zippity Zip! Cassie and Lilly on the other hand were quiet popular among the boys. Cassie had, in the last six years, dated numerous Ravenclaws, a few Gryffindors and a hufflepuff or two. Her
longest relationship so far being with Daniel Jenkins, of Gryffindor. That, unfortunately had ended in tears.

Lilly, the firecracker she was, had dated three or four Ravenclaws seriously. I couldn't help but wonder when her and Potter were going to get together. Every one knew it was going to happen..everyone except Lilly that is.

I lifted my eyes to gaze at the faces that sat around me. I had t admit, no matter how much I despised Black and Potter I had to admit, they were nothing but sex on legs. I had found hope in Remus, and I knew right then and there he and Cassie had chemistry. Now, all I had to do was fix them up. I watched them intently. They were leaning closer to each to each other, almost subconsciously. I also noticed, they seemed set on avoiding direct eye contact, and settled with stolen glances. Well I definitely had to do something about that didn't I.

"Remus!" I said, over the chatter that flowed between them.

"What's up?" he asked, a kind smile set on his handsome features.

"I just wanted to ask if you would like to, urm.." Oh crap..

"Yes?" he asked, raising his eyebrows up curiously.

"Join Cassie and I in the Library tonight!" I blurted out, not forgetting to stress Cassie's name ever so subtly.

"Oh" he grinned, "Sure, I'd love to!" He glanced over at Cassie smiling warmly.

I beamed, work well done, work well done! I noticed what seemed to be death glares boring into the side of my head, I turned and came face to face with a livid Black and a furious Potter. I smiled angelically, "Oh! I'd invite you too, I just
assumed studying would bore you!" My face sickly sweet with lies. To be honest I would rather spend a night with the whomping willow than with those two idiots.

They simply glared, then turned back to their food. I stabbed a carrot with my fork and popped it into my mouth.

It was almost the end of lunch and I had a glorious double free period to enjoy, so I gathered my things and stood up.

"Cassie, I'm going to go. You coming?" I asked, my face expectant.

"Oh, I think I'll stay a little longer. I'll catch you later!" She said, giving a subtle nod toward Remus.

"Alright then" I smiled and made my way toward the great wooden doors of the great hall. The corridors were still empty, not many people had finished their lunches. I made my way toward the lake, it was a brilliant day outside and I was desperate
to soak up as much of the sun as possible. The corridor made a sharp left turn, and as I turned it I felt myself grasped at the arm and pulled behind a tapestry. "What the fuc-" I started. A hand was clamped over my mouth and I was spun around to
face the culprit. I rolled my eyes. The hand was removed from my mouth.

"Lilly, what the bloody hell was that for" I exclaimed, hands on hips.

"Sorry, I've been trying to avoid Potter all day, and every time I take a step out of the shadows, HE'S THERE!" Lilly explained, her face annoyed. I laughed aloud. This was so typical of Lilly, going out of her way to avoid Potter. I don't think she realised
that if she just ignored him, he would leave her alone...ok maybe not, but it wouldn't encourage him as much as all this!

"This is ridiculous!You need to stop it!Just ignore him!" I said, grabbing her by the shoulders and giving her a rough shake.

"CUT IT OUT!", she yelled, "Don't you think I've tried that?, he's just so persistent!" Lilly whined, pushing her scarlet locks from her eyes and pouting dramatically. Oh please, she made it sound like a bad thing! Having one of the most desirable guys in the school infatuated with you was hardly painful. I shook my head at her and patted her hair.

"You need to face your issues my dear, now I'm going. You can either hide in here, or come sunbathe." I tempted, a slight smile on my face.

"Argh..Ok, Ok I'll come!" She huffed, pushing past me into the corridor. I grinned and followed her.







The midday sun was warm on my back. Lilly and I lay on our stomachs not more than five metres from the cool water of the black lake. She was picking at the delicate daisies that had appeared in the past few weeks,over the lush grass. I flipped over onto my back, letting my hair fan over the green blades. It was so comfortable lying there, surrounded by nature that I almost dozed off.

"Keen for a swim?" I heard Lilly ask. I opened one eye and stared at her.

"Not particularly." I said, a bemused smile settling on my face.

"Oh come on! Don't be so boring!" Lilly said, also flopping onto her back, she reached over and pinched my arm.

"Firstly. Ouch" I glared " And secondly, I am not boring!".

"Yes you are, you always spoil the fun in everything!" Lilly snapped, her face settled into a frown.

"Don't frown, you'll end up looking like an old hag." I snapped back. She grinned at me.

"Hah! Funny. Please Alex!" She begged. "Pretty please, with cherries and crushed nuts on top!" She propped herself up on her elbow and stuck out her bottom lip.

"What kind of nuts." I asked, an eyebrow raised.

"I don't know! Almonds?" She asked, her eyes gleaming.

"Ok. Done. Let's go then." I said, pushing myself to my feet.

I would like to say it was the cherries and almonds that convinced me to go swimming with Lilly, but in all honesty..When Lilly called me boring, something inside of me snapped. I had always considered myself different, but never boring.
So I got up, and like Lilly, stripped down to the tank top and shorts I wore under my school robes. Lilly grabbed my hand, and after her count of three I found myself submerged in the cool water of the lake. I opened my eyes, and found myself
looking into the eyes of the redhead whose hand I still held. She grinned at me, releasing bubbles as she did so. After what seemed like eternity we rose to the surface and sucked in air.

"It's lovely!" Lilly beamed at me.

"It is isn't it" I said returning the smile.

I floated onto my back, enjoying the gentle lapping of the water at my toes and fingers. It was cool and refreshing. The sounds of the school were muffled by the liquid that filled my ears. I closed my eyes and smiled.

Lilly pulled at my shorts and I was brought back to reality.

" Shit! Oh Alex, he's coming!"  Lilly whispered frantically to me, glancing up toward the castle I noticed four familiar faces. Cassie,Remus,Sirius and James were making their way down to us.

"Oh calm down Lilly!" I hopped out of the water, feeling rather exposed as my clothes clung to me.

The four reached me, and Cassie smiled. I glanced back at Lilly, who was ducking down as low as possible in the water. Potter had already seen her so there wasn't much point really. I grinned at Remus knowingly as he snuck another glance
at Cassie.

"Hi guys, join us?" I said, a sudden burst of confidence rushing through me.

"Definitely" James said, still staring in what seemed to be a passionate manner, at Lilly. She in return glared.

I smiled apologetically and turned around, hopping back into the water. I noticed Sirius's eyes lingered a tad longer than I was comfortable with. He turned to Remus.

"Coming in Moony? " He asked with a devilish grin.

"No thanks, but I'm sure you are." Remus shot back, and with one quick push Sirius was sent flailing.
I let out a shriek as I realised he was coming straight for me, I ducked under the water. Sirius just missed me, and from under the water I watched him hit the bottom of the shallow bank softly. He opened his eyes, and gazed around him, squinting slightly to focus. My eyes caught his. We floated under there, eyes connected until I felt my lungs scream for air. So I burst to the surface, and Sirius followed suit. No one had noticed, Remus and Cassie were sitting on the grassy bank and James was attempting to engage in a splash fight with Lilly. I hauled myself up onto the grass and lay there. I stole a quick peak toward the lake, Sirius was treading water not too far from me, an unreadable expression on his face. I returned my face to the grass, breathing in the earthy scent. What had just happened was beyond me.

I lay face down blushing secretly into the grass.








A/N: A filling chapter really !! Any who I hope you enjoyed it none the less!
Review, add! Love- Funkyllama!


Chapter 3: Detentions and snogging.
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

A/N: It was dark in the subway, I looked over my shoulder and noticed a rather dubious looking fellow a few feet away from me.
This wouldn't end well.. I knew what he was here for...My disclaimer. I wouldn't give in that easily. With one swift movement I spun around and round house kicked him in the face. He lurched backward, grasping at the air.
Oh yea I was good..The next thing I knew, there were multiple copies of him everywhere, more and more poured in through
the exits, holding what seemed to be snipers. I gasped, and curled into a ball.

"OK, OK. I DON'T OWN ANYTHING" I screamed in fear.

When I opened my eyes..they were gone.

(Sorry for spelling and Grammer mistakes It's late AND my checker stopped working!)







I learnt many things in the next few hours.

1.Cassie never shut up.
2.Cassie never shut up.
3.Cassie never shut up.
EVER!

Oh, and I don't like Pumpkin juice.

I sat indian style on my bed, watching her bob around the room in a frantic rush to get ready for studying with Remus.It was quite amusing to me, watching her zoom around. It reminded me of a muggle game I had played in a muggle arcade
two summers ago. All you had to do was flick these two levers back and forth to stop a small ball getting past them. Cassie ducked down to search through her truck.

"What about this ? " She asked, holding a small pink skirt to her hips.

"Ew. Not you at all" I replied, wrinkling my nose in distaste.

She looked put-out, but promptly continued searching through her trunk. I wasn't all too sure why she was making such a big fuss out of this, it was only Remus. Remus Lupin did not seem like the type of person who would judge someone  on what they wore. Then again, i suppose it was only normal for her to be worried..I heard once that what you wore acted as something similar to a mating call. Hell, if Cassie had a chance to mate with Remus she better make sure she got her outfit right. Remus was more of a conservitive person it seemed, a mini skirt would not do the trick.

"Try your dark jeans and that grey and white striped top" I exclaimed
"The one with the long sleves, it shows just the right amount of midrift" I grinned.

She smiled enthusiastically, and dropped to the ground. A few second later she popped back up, clothes in hand.

"Shoes?"

"Converse for sure!" I smiled, then I pointed to the bathroom. "Go!".

Cassie dissapeared, I flopped onto my back and stared up at the ceiling. If what I said about mating calls was true, then what in hell was I attracting. My school uniform bunched up uncomfortably around my theighs. I sighed. It was about time I began to get changed too. With one quick leap I was up on my feet. I searched through the closet I shared with Cassie, finding light blue denim shorts and a loose, white off the shoulder jumper. I tucked my feet into my uggs and sat, once again, Indian style on my bed. Not long later Cassie re-appeared. She grinned and did a little twirl.

"Gorgeous" I smiled "Now let's go, I have a gazillion essays to finish!" I said, pushing her out of the dorm and down into the common room. As I took the last step down, I came face to face with a demon. Ok maybe not a demon, but something just as bad, Jacinta Hornbury. I almost vomited.

"Your in my way skank" she spat in a venemous tone. My eyes grew about twice the size.

Jacinta Hornbury was the definition of evil. She was blonde, green-eyed and pure, plain, un-diluted evil. She stood a foot taller than me in her heels, I could almost feel the hate radiating off her bulemic body. The girl made me shudder! She was like a real life Barbie doll, with her bleached hair and orange tan. I bet she smelled horrible, all that bottled browness. To be honest, there had been a time; long, long ago; where I had been unbelivebly jealous of her. She reeled in all the lads. Had them drooling at her feet. I now saw her for what she really was, Fake. Bleached, orange, push up bras and sky scraper  heels. I now felt unbelievebly sorry for her.

Without a word I slipped to the side and let Jacinta and her groupies pass. Nobody stood up to Jacinta, no matter how much they wanted too. Cassie and I exchanged a look and then she grabbed my hand, leading me through the common room and out through the potrait hole.

"I don't know who the hell Hornbury thinks she is!!" Cassie spat, mostly to herself.

"Jacinta Hornbury is my guess, I could be wrong though." I said sarcastically, a small smile present on my face.

Cassie stoped walking and turned to me,"Alex. Shut up. OK?" She said her face plainly annoyed.

"No." I said, pouting.

Cassie rolled her eyes and stopped looking around her, "I can't be bothered walking the long way, let's take the tapestry".

I nodded and followed her down the corridor untill we reached the tapestry Lilly had pulled me into earlier. Cassie pushed back thick and musty material and we dissapeared behind it.

"Ah shit it's dark" Cassie said in a manner of fact tone.

"Lumos" I muttered "Your such a lousy witch.".

"Hey!Just because I'm not super smart like you, anyone could have made that mistake!" She bitched back at me.

"Whatever, come on"

I took the lead and pulled Cassie down the narrow passage, making sure to watch the ground for any obstacles I would most certaintly trip over. I strained both my eyes and ears. I felt Cassie stop abruptly behind me, pulling my hand back. I turned to her, a puzzled expression on my face. "What?" I whispered, why I whispered I didn't know. We were alone in the passage way after all. Cassie took my wand from my hand and covered the light with her hand, dimming it. I cocked and eyebrow at her, she just beckoned to me while moving forward quietly. Soon I saw her reasons, not too far down the passage was a couple. I covered my mouth to muffle a giggle I couldn't control and watched as Lilly Evans ran her hands through messy blonde hair. Cassie winked at me and cleared her throat ever so lightly. Lilly opened one eye, her partner
didn't seem to hear; he was busy with Lilly's blouse. Lilly lifted one hand from the boys back, pulled the finger and then shooed us. Cassie and I crept past them, looking rather disgusted as the boy let out a groan. We walked faster, giggling silently at the hilarious noises coming from the pair.





Remus Lupin sat at a small, circular table. Unfortunatley, he was not alone. Cassie preened her hair before we walked over from the great wooden doors and sat down.
The library was alomst empty, apart from us, and the frumpy librarian seemed to be drooling, sending quick but obvious glances toward out table. Pretty much eye raping the boys. I don't think they noticed though.

"Hey guys, what took you so long?" Remus asked, a small questioning smile set upon his face.

I looked down at the wrist watch I wore, a pointless move. The watch was almost impossible to read, with it's eight different hands and the constant changing time zones. I had picked it up in fourth year from a neat little store in hogsmede.

"Oh, sorry" I laughed "We ran into Lilly snogging some guy in the tapestry passage" I giggled again, but stopped when nobody else followed, not even Cassie. I looked up to find four pairs of eyes on me. Oh. I get it now.

James Potter sat, looking quite livid, directly across from me. Without a word he removed himself from his chair, picked up his things and walked angrilily out the Library doors.

"Oh, um. Opps?" I said, almost asking.

"Oh good one, now I'm gana have to deal with that all day" Sirius said, glaring angriliy at me.

Remus rolled his eyes, "Don't worry about it Alex, he'll get over it," he looked at Sirius, who glared at me. " He always does".

I nodded timidly and glanced at Cassie, who looked disbelievingly back at me. I shrugged at her, "What, all I did was tell the
truth!".

"Sometimes the truth is better left untold Alex" she sighed. I blushed and dipped my head down.

Our time in the library passed relativley quickly, Sirius ended up leaving after about ten minutes after a fifth year girl from ravenclaw walked past and slipped a note into his hand. I knew her, she was dating a lovely young chap from hufflepuff. Dan I think his name was, lovely guy. I glared at her, it wasn't hard to guess what the note might contain. He was repulsive, why Remus chose to be friends with him I had
no idea! I decided to get up and leave Cassie and Remus to them selves, realising I was just acting as a third wheel. Cassie lifted her head and smiled at me, I returned it with a brief grin before walking briskly out of the Library and into the empty corridor outside. I walked in silence.

It was quite warm out, despite the darkening sky. It smelled wonderfull, like grass, blossoms and honey. I smiled to myself enjoying this rare moment of tranquility. It wasn't often one got a chance to admire the world in all it's glory, I felt honoured to be seeing it like this, perfect.

Unfortunatley, my life sucked, the universe hates me and so on and so forth. As soon as I turned the corner I was hit with the full blast of a Lilly scream. My eyes widened at the sight before me. Lilly was pumelling Potter, Sirius was levitating the blonde bloke Lilly had been with earlier, and he seemed to be..crying? No, not crying just yelling? Oh I don't know!

"POTTER I HATE YOU, YOU-YOU ASS!" she yelled, continuing to bash James arm. In all honestly he looked to be enjoying it.

"Lilly my sweet-OW!" James yelped

"LET JUSTIN DOWN, NOW!" She screamed.

Sirius was laughing, still levitating 'Justin' with ease. His black hair fell into his eyes.

He is so fit..

NO!

I shook my head, and opened my mouth.

"What in the world is going on here!" I heard a painfully strict voice exclaim from behind me.

Justin was dropped, Sirius stood the speaker, still grinning.

Lilly looked tearful, James looked ecstatic about the about of physical contact he had just recieved with Lilly...despite
the fact it was all very violent.

And I, well..I can imagine how bloody confused I must have looked about then.

"Minnie dear!" Sirius grinned, his arms outstreched.

"I'm appalled at your behaviour!" She paused "Mr. Potter, Miss. Evans. Detention, six tonight! Miss. Jane, Mr. Black I'll be seeing you two at eight!"

"It's a date" Sirius winked.

She huffed, "Miss. Evans please escort Mr. Hunt to the hospital wing, have Maria see him!" She said, still furious with us all. She then turned briskly on her heel and walked away.

Lilly grabbed Justin and stormed off, leaving Potter, Black and myself. They stared at me.

I took that as my cue to leave them to it, I backed away then spun around, almost running down the corridor.

"See you in detention, Jane" I heard Sirius call, his tone nasty. I heard James snicker and then I turned the corner.

Could this day get any worse?

I think not...







A/N: Ok so it was super short, I know! I didn't have much time to chuck this up. The next one will be longer, pinky promise!
Review, what did you like, not like, hate etc.

I love you all, you make my day!


Chapter 4: Detentions and the Hulk.
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

 A/N: I back flipped over the side of the hot air baloon basket. I was falling, at a limb cracking speed. I looked up, spotting six or seven dark figures also toppling through the cool night air. I pointed my arms toward the ground, increasing my speed. I had lost them! I pulled my shoot, and floated easily to the rough, brown terrain. With a pleased smile, I landed. Job  well done. I looked up.

In a tight circle around me, stood fifty. NO, one hundred and fifty armed Lawyers.

I raised my arms in a feeble surrender....


Ok. Enjoy!









Never in my life had I gotten a detention. No, I'm not a goody good! I'm just careful when it comes to misbehaving. Only on special occasions is my motto! I smiled to myself.
It was almost eight o'clock, I had a detention with Sirius Black in twenty four minutes and thirty two, thirty one, thirty seconds. I wasn't quite sure how to handle this situation.  It seemed Sirius didn't hold any interest in being my friend, or even being kind to me. No he much rather preferred to see me humiliated and put out. I could tell you now, Sirius black and I had absolutely nothing in common, he was a prick, he was good looking. Very, Very good looking. I wasn't. It didn't bother me that I wasn't radiant like Cassie, Lilly or...Jacinta. I didn't care, not very much anyway. I rose from my bed, leaving the soft sheets behind. As soon as I had gotten back to the dorm I had decided to take a quick nap. It was a talent I had developed over  a number of years; I was able to fall asleep anywhere. It took less than a minute for me to doze off. 
 
 
It was cooler now. The evening had brought a musky humidity with it. Outside on the grounds, a light mist hung ever so beautifully above the lush grass. The sky looked gorgeous, every star individualized; the deep black of the sky causing the stars to look absolutely enchanting. I beamed, it had definitely been the most interesting day of my year. First of all, I had been talked to my Cassie's spunky older brother, was hit in the face, jumped in the lake, had eye sex with Sirius Black, ran into Lilly snogging, been yelled at by Sirus for telling James, witnessed a battle and landed myself in detention.
In all honesty I was quite damn proud of myself, I had prevailed in aiding Cassie with Remus, broken the rules and had spilt a secret to James Potter. This day would have been perfect if not for the detention. 
 
I wasn't really sure about what to bring, what to wear. I decided to change into a pair of torn skinny jeans and a Hulk Tee; I soon realized it was a tad bit small, and rested just a few centimeters below my belly button; I decided it looked fine, I couldn't really be bothered changing anyway. The Hulk, another Muggle creation. A regular guy that, when enraged, turned into a hot hunk of brawn and green. I grinned.
I reached over to the left side of my bed, and grabbed my school bag. Just incase it was lines or something boring like that. I smoothed the covers of my bed, tucking in the sheets and plumping the pillows expertly. I loved a well made bed.
 
The dorm was empty apart from me. I suspected most of the girls were out with their significant others; It seemed that everyone had a boyfriend apart from me.
I slipped on some of Cassie's flats- White ones, with the backs worn down. I walked into the bathroom, took one look in the mirror and my face crumpled.
A agonizingly dull face scowled back at my from the finger-print coated glass. My hair was chaotic, wavy as well as frizzy. I reached over to one of the many make-up bags on the bench. It just so happened to be Lily's. I probed around until I found her special de-frizzing balm, she didn't let anyone touch it. Ever. I took as little as possible and combed it through my hair. astonishingly it worked; nothing worked on my hair, I grinned. My hair now fell in feminine waves, it wasn't as pretty as Lilly's or Cassie's; It still looked relatively nice. I scrutinized my face, deciding my foundation did not need to be re-applied. However, I did decide to apply some eyeliner and mascara. My eyes were soon lined with coal black, making the blue stand out a little more. Lastly I applied my mango and strawberry lip balm, spritzed some of Cassie's perfume on (Which I regretted instantly; I was never much of a perfume kind of person) and walked out of the dorm.
 
The halls were empty, the paintings were silent, slumbering. I raised an eyebrow, It was hardly that late! Oh shit. I didn't actually know what time it was, I glanced at my watch. Of course it was of no help what so ever. All I could do now was pray to Merlin that I wasn't too late. My speed picked up as I rounded a corner, my footsteps resounding off the stone walls. I was out of breath by the time I reached Professor Mcgonagall's office, and as I pushed the door open I knew I was in the shit.
 
"Miss Jane, do you have any idea what time it is?" Mcgonagall asked, her eyes were on a piece of parchment that lay on her desk. 
 
"Um, I don't actually." I paused, realizing Sirius was not in the room. "You see my watch we-" I started, but before I could finish the doors were thumped open; Revealing a relaxed Sirius Black.
 
"Mr Black, glad you decided to join us" She raised her eyes, watching us both with an intense gaze. "You are both thirty four minutes late, this detention will now finish at ten thirty four." She said, her tone lacking any sign of emotion. I instantly felt guilty for making her wait. Ah, clever trick.
 
Sirius groaned, and sent a glare at the woman, who stood up and gathered her things.
 
"You will both be required to clean this classroom, spotless. No leaving before ten thirty four."
 
Sirius drew his wand, and smirked.
 
"Mr Black, certainly by now you know no magic is to be used." She said, her gaze stern. Sirius groaned once again, and put his wand away. "You will find all the laundering products you require in the cupboard to your left, good night." She said, gesturing to the broom cupboard, and then she disappeared out the door.
 
It was silent. 
 
"Um, I uh" I tried.
 
"Look, I don't fancy being here anymore than you. Do me a favor and don't talk to me" He spat.
 
My mouth dropped open in surprise, who the hell did he think he was! I watched him, taciturn, as he hauled out a mop and some green stuff in a bottle.
 
"Excuse me!" I said, "Just because your having a sulk cause your plans with some bimbo got cancelled, does not mean you have the right to take it out on me!" I exclaimed, crossing my arms and glaring at the preposterously exquisite boy.
 
"I can do what ever the fuck I like. Just because I had plans and you didn't" He said arrogantly, returning the glare with equal hostility. I huffed.
 
"For your information, I did have plans! Something alot more interesting than eating face" I clenched my fists.
 
"Oh, like what eati-" I didn't let him finish, "Your disgusting, stupid ass!" I yelled. 
 
"Oh, is little Alexandra jealous." He said in a mocking baby voice. 
 
"Black your a right prick!" 
 
"I think Alex needs a woman to hold" 
 
"FUCK OFF!" 
 
"No need to get defensive just cause you like girls." He jeered.
 
I shoved him as hard as I could.
 
"Don't fucking touch me!" He said, shoving me back.
 
"Don't push me Black!" I screamed.
 
"Or what, what are you going to do about it huh?" He asked, shoving me one last time.
 
My back hit the stone wall.
 
"I uh- I- u-hm" I stuttered moronically.
 
Blacks face was dangerously close to mine, his breathing was angry and ragged. I could feel it on my face. His glare bore into me, I felt defenses against him.
I looked up at him, fear showing in my eyes. I knew about him, his family. I didn't know what to expect from him, I wasn't sure what to do next. He kept my gaze, his eyes burning into mine. I was about to whimper when, and I know I'm not imagining this, his eyes flickered to my lips.
 
That one moment was all I needed, I brought my knee up as hard as I could. It connected with his groin. Sirius let out an agonized yelp and crumpled to the floor.
For a moment, I regretted it. That moment however passed, and with all the speed I could muster I bolted out the door. We hadn't even begun to clean the room, this was sure to land me in another detention; I didn't care. I knew it wouldn't take long for Sirius to recover. He's be after me in a flash, and then, I was fucked. I ran down the corridor, turned left and then hid behind a suit of armour and waited. It was about three minutes before Sirius came into sight, limping slightly. He looked furious, I shrank back as he looked left. For a moment I was certain he was going to walk down the corridor I hid in. I blew a relieved sigh past my lips as he continued on, straight, mumbling. I slid down the wall, eyes closed. There was no way I could go back anytime soon, he would be waiting there for me. As I sat against the wall my mind drifted to other things. My family, mother, father and sister Molly. I loved Molly with all my heart, she had graduated from Hogwarts two years ago, a brilliant Ravenclaw. She now worked as a healer. I missed my family more than anything else. I missed my mother's cooking, my father's aftershave. I missed my room and the garden view from my window. I missed the muggle people next door. I loved Hogwarts, but I needed my family.  I sighed and stood with great effort. It took longer to get back to the Common room, I walked at a painfully slow pace this time. My mind was elsewhere, and my feet were unresponsive. When I arrived I gave the Fat Lady the password and cautiously stepped inside. There was no Sirius insight, he must be searching still, or he's in his dorm.
 
"Alex! Detention over already?" 
 
I looked up to see Cassie and Lily sitting on the couch, pouring over a muggle magazine. They were not the only ones in the common room. Jacinta Hornbury and James Potter were snogging by the window, Frank Longbottom was sitting at a table, a wall of parchment encircling him. There were a few first and second years playing Wizards chess, and four third year girls deep in conversation by the fire.
 
"Oh yea, uh. Finished early?" I said, scratching the back of my head awkwardly.
 
"Why, what happened? Mcgonagall go easy on you?" Lily asked, absently.
 
"Uh, no not exactly" I said, looking rather embarrassed.
 
"What did happen then?" Cassie said, looking very interested now she noticed my expression.
 
"I um, well" 
 
"Spit it out!" Lily exclaimed, putting the magazine down.
 
"Well, ok." I said simply.
 
Their faces had impatience written all over them, "Ok, so I may or may not have, kneed Sirius in the balls." I said quickly.
 
Their faces were absolutely priceless, Lily's eyebrows shot up and her jaw dropped. Cassie's face went from blank to Puzzled to shocked. The third years by the fire gasped, James stopped eating Jacinta's face.
 
"You, wait. You did what!" hollered Cassie.
 
"I kneed Sirius in the nuts" I said, then I opened my mouth to continue but Lily interrupted me.
 
"Oh my gosh, Alex!" She scolded.
 
"Hey, he insulted me, said I liked girls!" I said defensively.
 
"So! You know better than that!" Lily said, "You know your going to get into trouble for this!" 
 
"I'm not stupid Lillian, I know!" I spat.
 
Hurt flashed across her face, Cassie shook her head.
 
"I'm sorry, I didn't mean it Lils!" I said, my apologies were never the best. Infact I didn't normally apologize to anyone. 
 
"It's alight, never mind." She replied, a small smile appearing on her gorgeous features.
 
Cassie yawned and stretched, "I'm pooped, wana head up? " She asked.
 
The common room was empty anyway, so after one quick glance at the portrait hole; I followed the girls upstairs, into the warmth of the dormitory.
 
The room was alive and buzzing, Jacinta and her posse of skanks sat on their beds; they were talking about nonsense, and a horrible smelling lotion onto their dieted limbs. Alice and her quiet friend Sandra sat on Alice's bed, chatting in hushed tones. Olivia Greens, the pretty caramel headed chaser had gone to bed; I wasn't surprised, she did get up insanely early.
 
I bit my lip as Jacinta laughed, in the least subtle manner about my once again frizzy hair. Lily shot her a dirty look and smiled at me.
 
All I wanted was to sink back into the warm sheets of my bed and sleep, a dreamless night. I changed quickly, and hurried into the bathroom to wash my face and brush my teeth.
The chatter from the dorm continued as I hopped into bed, after saying good night to my friends. I drew my curtains and ducked under my covers, relishing the warm darkness.
 
I shut my eyes, and soon fell into a deep slumber. My dreams saturated with one face.
 
Sirius Black.









A/N: Oh I know I'm evil!

'Omg don't hurt Sirius!'

TO BAD! Mwahaha. I bet you all thought Alex was going to let him kiss her!

What will happen next?
Will Sirius get revenge?
Will Cassie get with Remus.
Who knows!
