Chapter 9 - Truths & Frikin' Slytherins

Well that had not been what Aria was expecting.

She stopped in her tracks, all thoughts of her friends momentarily evaporated from her mind. She whirled around. "What?" she asked, bewildered.

Travis' face was now a deep red, but he looked at her defiantly. "I think I'm gay.." he repeated, his voice stronger this time.

Aria just stood there staring at him, the rain pelting her face. She ignored it. "Thats... er.. shocking..."

He didn't answer, just watched her. Aria bit her lip. "So, I suppose we aren't together anymore then..." she said, her voice emotionless.

He nodded. "I suppose so... um... I'll understand if you don't want to be friends or anything..." he coughed, "I'll just be going now." He turned to leave. Aria rolled her eyes.

"Why wouldn't I want to be your friend? Because you're gay? Come on. That's not that big of a deal... as a matter of fact.. I've always wanted to have a gay friend... but I was always leaning more on Sirius... not you..." she joked, twirling her extremely wet hair in her fingers.

Travis smiled, obviously relieved. "Could you not.. spread it around though?"

Aria smiled. "Sure thing."

Suddenly she remembered Carina and she jumped. "Oh.. I've got to go. I'll see you around!" She pulled him into a hug, and he hugged her back.

"So you really think Sirius is gay?"

Aria pulled away and slapped him in the back of his head. "Bye Travis!" she called, laughing, before running off in search of her best friends.


"Jamie, I don't like it out here." Sarah Potter whispered into her brother's ear. James held on to her tightly, scared that if he loosened his grip on his baby sister, then she would fall from the broomstick.

"We're almost there sweetie." he told her, reassuringly as they flew downwards, towards the back of the school. There was a small hut back there that he knew about. They could all hide out in there for a while, at least until the rain let up.

Finally, James spotted the small wooden shack. It was half-hidden by trees, so it was pretty hard to make out. James landed right in front of it, and climbed off, pulling Sarah into his arms.

He turned around, looking to see if his friends had followed them. He squinted as the icy rain hit his face, and he sheilded Sarah. Sirius and Carina landed right next to him, followed a few minutes later by Remus and Lily.

"Come on guys, lets go in here and wait for the rain to let up." he said, leading them all into the shack. They all filed in, and sat down on the cold, hard floor.

It wasn't much, but at least now they had shelter from the rain.

Carina sat in the corner of the small place, farthest from the door. The place wasn't very big at all. They all sat down, and there was barely anough room to spread out all of their legs.

Sirius was sitting on one side of his twin, while Remus sat on the other, trying to calm her down.

Carina knew that she was safe for now, but she didn't know how she was going to get out of the stupid marriage in the long run. She couldn't hide forever, and she knew it.

Everybody else knew it as well, but they didn't want to admit it.

Suddenly Sirius was jerked out of his thoughts about his sister as he looked around the room at his friends. "Where's Aria?" he asked, realizing that she wasn't there.

Lily spoke up. "Somebody had to stay behind. There wasn't enough brooms. She said she'd try to find us after."

"She's not going to know to come here. Somebody is going to have to go find her." said James. "I'll go." He went to stand up, but Sarah clung tightly to his leg. He looked down at her and sat back down.

Lily stood up. "I'll go."

Without waiting for a response, she braced herself and walked back out into the stinging rain. Looking around, Lily decided to start looking for her friend by the front entrance to the school.

She walked quickly, trying in vain to dodge the rain. Usually, she loved the rain, but now it was coming down hard, and painfully.

Suddenly, Lily got a weird feeling, like she was being watched. She sped up her pace, and shook the thought from her mind. The uneasy feeling had most likely come because the sky was grey, and she was still near the back of the school, where she had never ventured before.

Before long, Lily spotted a figure walking quickly towards her. She tensed for a moment, but then relaxed, recognizing the blond hair and slim figure. It was Aria.

Lily started running towards her friend, and soon reached her. "Aria! Thank goodness! It's freezing! Come on, let's get going. Everybody's waiting.. Aria? ... What's up?"

Aria had a weird expression on her face. She was still processing the information that her now ex-boyfriend was gay. It was sort of weird. Aria just shook her head. "Nothing.. Is everybody okay?"

Lily gave her a weird look, but nodded. "Yeah. Everybody's fine, but lets get back. They're all hiding in a little hut near the back of the school. Come on."

Aria quickly followed Lily, who led her to the small shack. Lily opened the door and they both walked in and sat down on the floor with the rest of their friends.

In Lily's absence, a small fire had been conjured in a bottle, and it was keeping everybody warm. Also, everybody now had blankets to wrap up in. Lily sat down next to Sarah and shivered, noticing finally how cold and wet she was. She glanced at Aria, who was shivering as well.

James looked at the two girls and took out his wand. "Siccus." he muttered, pointing his wand at Lily. Instantly, she was dry. She smiled gratefully at him, and he tried to keep the blush from his cheeks as he did the same thing to Aria.

They all stayed quiet for a long while, not doing much. Sarah had fallen asleep on her brother's lap.

Soon, Sirius grew tired of the silence. He didn't want everybody to be depressed anymore. He was sick of it. He wanted his friends to be happy again. He couldn't stand this.

He cleared his throat and looked around at them all. "We've got to cheer up. The world isn't over you know. There is no way in hell that Rina's marrying Snivellus, and we just escaped my parents. Let's just try to forget it for now."

They all nodded in agreement, but Remus rose his eyebrows. "So tell me, what do you propose we do, being stuck inside a small, damp hut?"

Sirius stroked his chin, as if deep in thought.

"Well.. we could always... play truth or dare.. or spin the bottle.. or tell scary stories.. or.."

"Or we could just talk... you know.. tell secrets, get to know each other better.. find out why some people.. er.. dislike others..." spoke up Carina, surprising everybody, including herself. She agreed with Sirius fullheartedly. She just wanted to forget about everything for the moment. At the last comment, she noticed that Lily had narrowed her eyes at her. She bit back a grin.

"Sounds good." said James. Everybody seemed to agree.

"Well.. err.. how about we start off, everybody asking somebody a question about themselves and they answering it." Suggested Aria. They all nodded. "Okay.. Lily first."

Lily's beautiful green eyes widened. "Why me?" she whined.

Aria smirked, but before she could answer, Remus spoke up. "Because you're the most confusing of the lot." he told her. She glared at him.

"Fine then. Go ahead. One at a time."

Sirius started. "What's your favorite dessert?" he asked. James looked at him. Sirius' eyes widened. "What? It's a very important question!" James rolled his eyes.

Lily laughed. "Strawberry Rhubarb Pie." she told him. He nodded, apparantly satisfied.

Carina went next. "Um... If you had one thing in the entire world that you could do for the rest of your life, what would you do?"

Lily bit her lip, thinking hard. "Well... As for a career, I'd like to be either a Healer or an Auror. I'm not really sure... but what I would love to do... is sing."

All of her friends looked at her in surprise. Not one of them had ever known that she liked to sing.

Except James.

"Really?" asked Aria. "I've never heard you sing."

Lily flushed. "Well.. I do.."

"I've heard you sing. Your voice is amazing." James cut in. Lily looked at him.

"You think so?" she asked.

He nodded. "Really."

"Ooh! My turn!!" said Aria. "Sing a song for us!"

Lily rolled her eyes. "That's not a question about me."

Aria smirked. "Nope. It's a request, as nobody here besides James has ever heard you sing."

Lily twirled her hair with her fingers. "I don't know..." Her friends instantly started begging and pleading with her to sing. Lily sighed. "Fine! FINE! But if I suck, it's your fault that you had to listen to it."

They all smiled happily and waited. Lily opened her mouth, but no sound came out. "Come on then!" Aria said impatiently. Lily shot her a glare before closing her eyes and starting to sing.

It was beautiful. They all stared in awe of Lily as she sang to them, save for James, who sat there with his eyes closed, smiling lightly to himself. Lily's voice sounded like it had come from an angel. That's what she sounded like. An angel. Soft, and sweet, yet elegant with a very.. Lily-ish vibe. Amazing.

When she was done, they all stared at her in shock. Lily began to flush under their gaze. She cleared her throat, which seemed to wake Sirius from his reverie. He started to clap loudly, and whistled. "That was amazing Lily!" he told her.

Lily blushed again and, ignoring all the praise she was getting from her friends, she turned to Remus. "Your turn. What's your question?"

"How has James heard you sing before?"

Lily scowled. "What's with the questions not about me?" Remus smirked. James didn't meet anybody's eye. Nobody answered. "Fine. Well.. um.. when we were little, James and I.. used to be... best friends... and.. yeah..." Lily felt her cheeks burn. Why the hell am I blushing?

Remus, Sirius, Aria and Carina were all smirking at her. James was staring at random spot on the floor, seemingly lost in thought. Lily was feeling very awkward. "Stop it!" she suddenly burst at them. They started to laugh slightly. Lily glared. "Next Question! Potter?"

James looked at her for a few minutes, as if trying to think of the perfect question. He hesitated for a minute, and then asked in a quiet voice. "Why do you hate me so much?"

Everybody stared at Lily, waiting for an answer, anxiously wanting to know what went on in that head of hers.

Lily was in shock. She had definitely not expected James to ask that. She swallowed, and cast her mind around, searching for the answer. Why did she hate him so much?

..Because he's an arrogant, selfish pig..

...But James really wasn't that bad, was he?

No, he isn't... Geezus, I've really got problems haven't I? How in the name of God am I supposed to answer this question? And in front of everybody? Oh my.. I really don't want to be here...

Suddenly a voice broke her train of thought. It was James. "Lily, forget it.. you don't have to answer."

She looked at him...

Really looked at him. She saw his annoyingly endearing messy hair, his deep hazel eyes, his seemingly calm, confident exterior.

She looked farther.

His eyes seemed to hold a trace of something unrecognizable.. but as Lily looked closer, she recognized it as sadness. Had that sad helplessness appeared there because of her? No.. that was impossible. So many things were happening right now, it could have been from anything.

She looked closer still, peircing his soul with her beautiful eyes, unbeknownst to her, James was feeling very fragile at the moment. Lily was gazing at him with such intensity, that he was slightly scared. He felt open, and unsafe. He'd never felt that before.

Everybody was still waiting for Lily to say something. She realized this, and opened her mouth, still not sure of what to say. She knew that she had hated him, at one point... but did she anymore?

She didn't like him, but she didn't hate him either. Lily was terribly confused. She didn't know what to think. Finally, she broke eye contact with James and looked down at the wooden floor.

"I don't..." she said softly, her cheeks turning slightly red.

All 5 friends gaped at her, completely taken aback, but at the same time, immensely satisfied. Remus was the first to snap out of his reverie. He smirked at his friend. She made a face at him, still looking slightly embarrassed.

Remus suddenly cleared his throat, deciding to take pity on Lily. He broke the overwhelming silence and said, "Who's next?"

Sirius, Carina and Aria snapped out of it as well, smiling knowingly as they continued the little game, learning more about each other. James however, was only half clued-in.

He was confused, to put it mildly. What the hell? She doesn't hate me? What? She sure acts like it! .. How many times has she said that she's hated me? At least a couple dozen times in the past few years...

His mind was reeling. But she hasn't really been acting like she totally hates me for the past.. month... jeezus! It's only the end of September! How did everything get so confusing so fast?

Then something clicked. She didn't hate him. She doesn't hate me... Lily Evans does not hate me, James Potter!

James bit back a broad smile, not wanting to look too happy on the outside.

On the inside, he was screaming in joy, and laughing, and doing cartwheels, and soaring high in the sky on his broomstick.


He snapped back to reality. "Yeah?" he asked.

"It's your turn to question Sirius." Aria told him.

James looked at his friend, and snickered. "Why haven't you had a girlfriend yet this year? We've been here for nearly a month, and you haven't asked anybody out yet."

Sirius glared at him. James smirked. Carina and Lily were silently laughing, along with Remus. Aria was just looking at him, her face passive.

"If you must know," he said pompously, "It's because I like somebody else who isn't one of the clingy chicks I've dated in the past."

That surprised everybody as well, as they hadn't been expecting that sort of answer from their friend. Aria had a sinking feeling in her stomach, but she pushed it away.

Then it was Remus' turn for questioning. "Where do you disappear to every so often?" Aria asked him curiously.

The room went completely silent. Everybody was looking at each other nervously. Aria was the only one of them who didn't know that Remus was a werewolf.

Remus looked at her. He opened his mouth, deciding to reveal to her his secret. He just hoped she wouldn't hate him. "I'm... I'm a werewolf." he said quietly.

Aria felt as though somebody had just thrown a brick on top of her head. Her hand covered her mouth in shock as she digested this information. She didn't move as everybody waited for her reaction. She just stared at her friend.

A zillion thoughts were running through her head. Her eyes started to well up with tears. Oh my GOD! How could I have never known? Not once! He's so nice! One of the sweetest guys I know.. and.. he's.. a monster! ... but he can't be a monster. Remus isn't a monster, I've known him for 6 years! And look what he's doing for Cari! It's the moon that makes him a monster! That beautiful..horrible moon... What a horrible life he must lead... Thank God for Dumbledore, or else he probably wouldn't go to school.. and he's so smart... Oh.. I remember learning about Werewolves in Defence Against the Dark Arts.. but Remus isn't a dark art.. he's just one of us.. one of my friends who has something terrible happen to him once a month! Oh, what a sin! I've heard how painful that transformation is! Remus Lupin does not deserve it! The poor child!

Aria had taken longer than the others to react, and Remus was taking this as a bad sign. She didn't want to be his friend anymore. He didn't blame her of course, he was dangerous.. but it still hurt.

Sirius and James were staring at Aria, willing her to make the right choice. He knew she had it in her. She wouldn't hate Remus, would she? No.. she couldn't.. James knew that Sirius liked her.. a lot.. but if she didn't accept Remus, he knew that she would never get a chance with Sirius.. of course.. then.. she wouldn't deserve it anyway..

Lily and Carina were staring at their friend as well. They were pleading with her not to be angry. They knew their friend well, and they knew that Aria was more likely to be mad that everybody had known before her, than she actually was at Remus.

Suddenly, Aria realized where she was, as she looked at Remus again. She took in his appearance. He looked so old, and anxious for his age... She really didn't realize how she hadn't noticed before. By now, tears were streaming down her pretty face. Before she realized it, Aria had jumped up and gave Remus a big hug.

"I'm so sorry." she whispered. Everybody gave a sigh of relief. Sarah squirmed in James' lap. Aria pulled away from Remus, noticing his bewildered expression. She rolled her eyes. "Did you really have so little faith in me, that I would like.. run away or something?? .. I guess everybody else already knows?"

Everybody nodded. Aria sat back down. "I wish you'd have told me sooner, but I'm glad you trusted me enough to tell me at all." she said.

Lily was impressed. Aria was acting very.. mature.. She had expected her friend to be histerical or completely in shock.

James beamed at Aria, proud of her decision, knowing that it would take Sirius one step closer to realizing that he liked the girl.

They went back to their little game.

Soon, they had asked everybody questions, but Aria. She answered them easily, and then it came to Carina's question.

"What's up with you and Travis? .. And what do you see in him?" Sirius stared at her intently.

Aria gulped, and looked down to the floor, not noticing Sirius' gaze. Her mind was spinning. Should she tell her friends about Travis' ... situation?

She looked at them. She knew that they were trustworthy, look what Remus had just told her! ... but she didn't know how everybody felt about gay people. She knew Lily was fine with them, and she guessed that Cari would be, and most likely Remus.. but what about James and Sirius?

Deciding to tell them the truth, and hoping that Travis would understand, she cleared her throat. "Oh.. uhh.. we aren't together anymore... he err.. well.. he's gay."

There was a surprised silence at the end of this statement.

Lily smiled and laughed. "I've always wanted a gay friend! Now he can go shopping with us and stuff!" she said excitedly. Aria laughed, as did Carina.

Remus was taken aback, but didn't really care all that much. As long as Travis didn't hit on him, he was fine. There was nothing wrong with being homosexual.

James, on the other hand, was torn. He hadn't really known anybody gay before, and he found it sort of weird. He knew that his parents were totally against it, and they had taught him the same... but, now that he thought about it, it really was no big deal. It sort of was like all the prejudice against Muggleborns and Werewolves wasn't it? There was nothing wrong with being different. He just shrugged.

Sirius on the other hand, was keeping a very straight face, absolutely passive.

On the inside he was jumping for joy and doing a victory dance.

Why was he so happy?

He wasn't really sure...

Well.. that's a lie. He knew that he liked Aria. He didn't want to like her, but it was impossible not to.

* * *

"Um.. you guys.. you think it's safe to go back to the castle yet?" Carina asked timidly. As much as she didn't want to face her parents, she was getting cramped up in this stupid little cabin.

"Oh Geez! Mum and Dad should have left by now, and Sarah's here!" cried James.

Lily bit her lip, thinking. "Well.. a few of us could go take Sarah back to her parents and find out if your parents are gone yet.." she suggested. Everybody agreed at once.

James stood up. "Okay, I'll go.. and I'll bring the map, and the cloak when I come back, so that you can hide under it okay?"

Aria stood up as well. "I'll go too."

"Me too." said Lily as she got to her feet.

James picked up his little sister, who was still sleeping, and the three teenagers made their way out the door, and back up to the castle, leaving Sirius, Remus and Carina in the small wooden shack.

It had finally stopped raining, so James, Lily and Aria walked back to the school slowly, barely speaking. Once they reached the huge doors to go inside, Aria pulled them open, and the three began looking around for Mrs. Potter.

They didn't have to go far. James' Mom was in the Great Hall, speaking with Professer McGonagle. "Mum!" James cried out when he seen her. "Are the Black's gone?.. Here.. take Sarah.."

Mrs. Potter walked swiftly towards her son, and scooped her daughter into her arms. "Yes, they have gone, but they were furious. Tell your friends to be careful, okay?"

James nodded. "Sure Mum." He turned back to Aria and Lily. "I've just gotta run up to my dorm for a bit. Wait for me?"

Aria nodded. "Okay. We'll be outside."

* * *

"Is she asleep?" Sirius asked, coming back to reality as he had been lost in his thoughts.

Remus nodded. "Yeah. Good thing too. I don't think she's gotten any sleep at all for the past few nights." He looked down at his beautiful girlfriend, who was presently cuddled up into his arms, eyes closed, her breathing rythmic and calm.

Sirius looked at his sister for a moment, before looking up at his best friend. "Listen Moony. You're one of my best friends, but Carina's my sister. As much as I hate to say this to you, hurt her, and you die."

Remus, who had been expecting some sort of speech like this from Sirius nodded resolutely. "Sirius, I would never, ever, in a million years, dream of hurting Carina. I love her."

Sirius smiled. "I know. Which is why I'm glad she has you now, instead of some other guy. I trust you."

Remus smiled too. "I would hope so." he said, smirking slightly. He paused, glancing at his friend. "While we're on the subject of girlfriends.. when are you ever going to ask out Aria?"

Sirius scowled at him, but didn't answer.

"Come on Padfoot, I know you like her.. heck, everybody knows you like her.. and I know it's been for a while too. How come you haven't said anything yet?"

Sirius wouldn't meet his eye. He looked at the floor and opened his mouth, choosing the right words. "I don't want to be rejected. I like her too much to be rejected."

Remus stared at his friend. Things were falling into place. "You mean like James, and Lily." It wasn't a question.

Sirius nodded again, finally looking up at his friend. "I like her too much to be rejected."

Remus opened his mouth to speak, but was cut off by the door opening. Aria, Lily and James walked in smilng. "Their gone. Come on, lets go back to the common room." Aria said cheerfully.

Sirius jumped up, and smiled widely at his friends, fighting back the blush that was trying to desperately to form on his face. "Let's go then!" he said, a little too happily, although nobody noticed, save for Remus.

"Should we wake her up?" Remus asked, refering to Carina.

Lily nodded. "Yeah, I think we should, just in case." She said as she knelt down next to Remus and preceeded to wake up her friend. "Cari.. wake up sweetie.."

After a few minutes of prodding and lightly shaking the girl, she was awake, and standing up. "Here, put this on." James told her, handing her his invisibility cloak, and glancing at Lily as he said it.

On the way back down to the shack, Lily had been fascinated with the cloak. At the moment, she was feeling the way the silky cloth moved between her fingers, like water woven into the material. James found it rather cute, how she was so obsessed with the material. Of course, he could never tell Lily this...

Carina put the cloak over her head, so that she was completely invisable. "Okay. Let's go." she said, following her friends out of the small cabin and out into the cool, fresh air.

The 6 friends walked through the castle happily, although Sirius was keeping a sharp eye out for the Slytherins. Lily was walking slightly behind everybody else, watching her friends. Aria and James were talking with serious looks on their faces, Sirius was walking in front of everybody, his face moving towards every unknown sound, every movement. Lily bit back a laugh. He looked like a dog.

Remus looked very odd indeed, walking where he supposed Carina was, trying to keep near her, but she was teasing him. She would say something and his face would whip around, looking for her, before looking somewhere else, an amused smile on his face. Lily watched as he tried to catch her, and laughed when he hugged thin air.

She loved her friends.

Lily was getting to know each and every one of them more and more, and they had only been at Hogwarts for less than a month.

Life's weird like that isn't it? Sometimes, life just speeds up, when you don't want it to. Other times, like now.. it seems to slow down, although Lily wasn't complaining. At the moment, everybody was safe, with the exception of Carina, but they'd all help her get through it.

Suddenly, Lily caught sight of Sirius, who had frozen in his tracks, staring at the corridor beyond them. Lily followed his gaze and held back a groan.


Of course.

The frikin' Slytherins just had to be there, ruining everybody's joy.

"Cari, shut up." Lily hissed, catching up with where she assumed her friend was. Remus looked at her questioningly, but then noticed the group of Slytherins coming towards them. He narrowed his eyes.

They always had a way of just showing up, when nobody else was around.


At least Carina was invisable.

"Black! Where is she? Where is my bride-to-be? I know you've got her somewhere!" came Snivellus' snarling voice.

Sirius glared. "That is none of your concern, you greasy haired pillock!" he spat, unable to come up with a better insult. Aria couldn't help but laugh slightly. Pillock? Seriously...

The small group of Slytherins ignored his comment. Bellatrix stepped foreward and sneered at them. "Well then, since she isn't here, we, or should I say, Severus, has a message for her."

"She doesn't want to hear any of your crap, so just piss off!" Remus said angrily.

Lucius Malfoy stepped foreward then. "Shut your dirty mouth and let the man talk." he said dryly.

"Man?" said James, scoffing. "Snivellus isn't a man. He's a pathetic little boy."

Lily let out an annoyed sigh. She wanted to get Carina out of there as soon as possible, and as the only way to the Gryffindor Common room was being blocked by the Slytherins, it probably wasn't a good idea to start a fight with them.

Snape growled at him, but ignored him. "Just tell my future wife, that I am not giving up. It isn't over. She may have escaped once, but she can't hide forever."

"Think whatever you want Snivellus, Carina will never be marrying you, so just go stick it up your ass." Sirius spat. "Now would you kindly move, you're blocking the hallway."

The Slytherin's obliged, shooting menacing glares at them, but knowing that it wouldn't be smart to start a fight right now. They had gave them the message, that's all that they had planned to do.

Lily walked behind all of her friends, making sure that they were all there. Sirius and Remus stormed away, trying to keep their tempers in check, with Carina running beside them. James had an ugly look on his face and was walking fast, trying to catch up to his friends, as was Aria. Lily hurried to catch up, but a hand seized her wrist, turning her around sharply, until she came face to face with Snape's sneering face.

She glared at him, and tried to wrestle out of his surprisingly strong grasp. "What do you want." she growled.

Snape smiled at her, much like he had done on the train. It scared her, but she wouldn't show it. "What do you want!?" she said again, louder this time.

"Well..." he pretended to look thoughtful. "As my dear wife to be isn't here..." he trailed off, grinning in a way he must have thought seductive.


"Get off me you pervert!" Lily hissed, trying once again to get out of his grasp. He held on tighter, pulling her closer. Lily winced, looking around the halls. Nobody was around. Her friends had disappeared, eager to get back to the common room with Carina, and even the other Slytherins had left. She was totally alone with Severus Snape. Not something every girl dreams of.

"I hate you! Get off me you dispicable, ugly, greasy, arrogant, annoying.. THING!" Lily shouted, annoyed and afraid.

Suddenly, Snape pushed her forcefully against the wall, knocking the air out of her, while still maintaining a firm grip on her wrists. He sneered at her. "Do not insult me." he ordered. "You are totally alone. Nobody is here to help you. So I suggest you stay quiet."

Lily struggled to kick him, but she couldn't move her legs. Apparantly, he had used some sort of paralysing spell on her, and she couldn't reach her wand as the asshole was gripping her wrists. The most she could do was glare, so glare she did.

Although, glaring isn't a very good weapon. Snape just ignored it, lifting one hand from her wrists, which he instantly conjured up a rope, and tied her two hands together.

And then, he muttered "Silencio."

She had no voice.

Peachy. Oh great. This is just perfect. Lily thought sarcastically. This was definitely not the best situation she'd been in. She was mostly grossed out than anything... and scared.. she was utterly petrified, but refused to show it.

All of a sudden, Snape began to talk to her with his digusting voice. "You know about the Dark Lord, do you not?... Yes.. I thought so. At the moment, something big is going on. Something that will change many lives, and not for the better.."

Lily stared, terror filling her mind. She didn't know what to think. Her heart was pounding in her chest. "The dark lord hates Muggles.. and especially Mudbloods.."

Lily's mouth went dry.

"I'll let you find out on your own however." He smiled maniacally. Lily got an uncomfortable, icy cold shiver down her spine. She shuddered, not liking that feeling at all.

Then, Lily felt like gagging. Snape lifted one of his large, greasy hands, and was running it through her hair, tracing her jawbone with his disgusting fingers, and slowly feeling up her neck, moving his hands towards her breasts.

Lily really felt as if she was going to barf, but instead, she spit on her captor. Snape withdrew slightly, looking disgusted, and then pushed Lily forcefully against the wall again, knocking her head painfully against the cold, hard stone. She winced, but then ignored the pain. Her mind was racing, panicking. How the hell am I going to get out of this? God damnit. If only I had walked just a little bit faster... but nooo... Geez! Doesn't anybody realize that I'm not following them?

* * *

Remus was still walking down the corridor next to Sirius, trying to calm down. It was working for the most part, but he just wanted to get into the common room so that Carina could take off the invisbility cloak, and he could make sure that she was okay.

Oh how he hated those Slytherins.

They all felt the same way. Sirius was walking in front of them all, muttering profanities as he went.

James was talking to Aria, discussing how they could protect Carina from Snape, because, as much as he hated to admit it, she couldn't hide forever. Eventually, they were going to force her to walk down the Aisle and marry Severus Snape.

It was rather quiet, and Aria suddenly got a weird feeling, like something wasn't right, and an icy cold shiver went down her spine. She stopped walking abuptly, shivering.

Beside her, she noticed that James had stopped too, and had a weird look on his face. She caught his eye, and he looked confused. "Did you feel that?" he hissed.

She nodded, feeling scared. "I don't like it." she said, her voice hardly above a whisper. They didn't move for a second, until Sirius, Remus, and an invisable Carina walked towards them.

"You felt that weird cold feeling too?" Carina's voice asked timidly.

They all nodded.

Remus turned to look at Lily, to see if she'd felt it too, but he couldn't see her pretty red hair anywhere. He felt the air leave his lungs. When was the last time he'd seen her?

..back with the Slytherins..

He turned back to his friends, his eyes filled with worry, but James had noticed as well. He looked around frantically, making everybody wonder what the hell was going on.

James stomach felt as if it had turned to ice. "Shit... Where's Lily?"
