Dumbledore Lily Sirius Molly Remus Peter


When Dumbledore returned he found Lily, Molly, Sirius, Peter and Remus all sleeping. Peter was curled up in the chair beside the couch, Molly was sleeping sitting up with Sirius’ legs on her knees. The rest of Sirius was spread over the whole couch. Lily was sleeping with her head in Remus’ knees and Remus sleeping with his neck in a very awkward position. Dumbledore looked at the five sixth years and walked over to the nearest healer.

“How’s James doing?”

“He is still in the same deep sleep he’s been in for the last 3 weeks” the healer replied checking James’ chart, “but I’m afraid that if he doesn’t wake up soon we might have to –” but she was cut off by a healer who was running towards them.

“Elda you have to come! Mr. Dove’s curse is getting worse” she said as she ran past. The healer Dumbledore had been talking to quickly put her chart down and ran after the other healer.

Remus had woken up by the screams and was stretching his neck. Dumbledore noticed this and walked over to the couch.

“Remus, did Lily get a chance to talk to James?”

“Yeah” yawned Remus as he picked up Lily’s head and placed it on the couch as he rose from the couch. He walked over to Dumbledore and looked around the room.

“Is everything alright?” Dumbledore looked at Remus over the top of his half moon spectacles. Remus nodded and looked towards the door to James’ ward.

“What about you sir?” asked Remus. Dumbledore was looking worried.

“Fine, fine” Dumbledore mumbled.

“What’s going on?” Sirius had woken up and was making his way towards the two of them.

“Professor Dumbledore?” healer Elda had returned and was fiddling with James’ charts once more.

“Yes?” Dumbledore gave Sirius and Remus a look as if to tell them to leave, which they did immediately.

“As I was saying, if James doesn’t wake up soon we might have to put him to sleep for good” Elda continued as she looked through the charts. Unfortunately Lily had woken up and had heard what the healer had said.

“Put…him…to sleep?” she croaked as her eyes filled with new tears. Remus ran over to her and tried to keep her still but he was unsuccessful. She shook him off violently and walked towards Elda.

“WHAT DO YOU MEAN?” she yelled as she started shaking Elda. Sirius and Remus ran towards her and got ready to pull her away when Dumbledore suddenly stuck out his wand in front of their chests, stopping them in their tracks.

“What?” Sirius looked at Dumbledore, confused. Dumbledore walked over to Lily and put a hand on her shoulder. Lily stopped shaking the healer and looked at Dumbledore.

“I won’t let him die professor!” she yelled.

“I know Lily, I know” Dumbledore said calmly. Lily looked at him for a while before storming out of there.

“What happened to her?” Sirius asked.

“James might have to be put to sleep I’m afraid” said Dumbledore without looking at Sirius or Remus.

“You…You can’t” stuttered Sirius as he looked at Dumbledore.

“Of course if he wakes up within the next two days there will be no ne –” but Sirius hurriedly interrupted him.

“He has to wake up!” he yelled.

“And I fear that in the current circumstances it would be best if you five returned back to Hogwarts. I will accompany you of course” said Dumbledore as he placed the tips of his fingers against one another as he always does.

“I…but…James…we, I can’t leave him!” exclaimed Sirius.

“I can’t leave him either!” yelled Lily walking over to Sirius. “I won’t go!”

“I’m afraid you have no choice.” Dumbledore picked a old sock out of his robe pocket and walked over to the students. He grabbed each of their hands and placed them on the sock. Instantly the familiar feeling of being pulled by their bellybutton was felt and they were soon standing outside the gates of Hogwarts.

Sirius Molly


“Are you ok?” Molly and Sirius had just arrived in the common room after having just arrived from Sgt. Mungos.

“Do I look ok?” Sirius walked over to the couch and sat down heavily. Molly stayed where she was and just looked at Sirius, a little hurt.

“There’s no need to snap” she murmured. Sirius looked up at her. Even though everything in his life seemed rotten at the moment the thing that made him feel worst was hurting Molly.

“I’m sorry” he said as he walked over to Molly and pulled her into a hug. “I’m sorry”

“It’s fine. You could lose your best friend. You have every right to snap at me” she said against his chest. He pulled her out and looked at her.

“I wouldn’t dream of hurting you” he whispered. A tear rolled down her cheek and Sirius quickly wiped it off. Molly pulled away from his grip and walked over to the couch were she sat down heavily, burying her face in her hands.

“I can’t take this much pressure. I can’t take waiting to find out if he’ll live or not. I can’t watch you and Lily suffering like this, it’s too much, and I won’t do it!” she yelled as she started violently crying.

“It’s…” but he couldn’t continue. At that moment he had for the first time realized that he might never ever talk to James again. He might never laugh, prank, or cry with James again. “I don’t know what to say” he said quietly.

Remus Lily


Lily and Remus walked slowly around the Hogwarts grounds. Neither of them knew what to say about the recent events.

“You...” started Remus.

“What?” replied Lily.

“I…sorry”

“That’s fine” whispered Lily looking back down at her feet. The sun was slowly rising from the edge of the world and the sky was the color of pink blended with orange. The trees in the forbidden forest were softly swaying back and forth and the soft cry of a rooster was heard, “Remus?”

“Yes?” said Remus without looking at Lily.

“I…Is…Is James going to die?” she stuttered. A tear was falling down her cheek. Remus looked over at her and he couldn’t help but smile, for even though the past few weeks had been almost the worst in his life, he was so touched by how Lily was reacting. All the crying, outbursts and violence was all to show she cared about James. Maybe she even loved him.

“I can’t answer that…but don’t you believe for one second that he will” Lily was quite taken aback by his answer and looked him with her brilliant green eyes. Lily smiled at him before she stopped in her tracks.

“I have to talk to Michael” she whispered as she turned on her heels and walked back up to the castle.

Michael Lily

Lily walked at a very high speed towards the library where she knew Michael would be studying.

“Michael?” She stopped suddenly at the sight of a familiar figure sitting in the corner. He looked up at her. It was clear that he’d been crying. “What’s the matter?” She sat down next to him and grabbed his hand.

“You…I…never” he whispered as he started to breathe very heavily.

“It’s alright” Lily said, comforting him, “whatever it is it can’t be that bad” At this Michael turned his head to face her so quickly that Lily let out a small scream.

“It’s not alright!” he yelled as he stood from his position and looked down at Lily, “You filthy little…” but he was gone before Lily could hear the rest of the sentence.

“Michael?” she ran after his loud footsteps she could barely hear in the distance, “Michael?” when she turned a corner she accidentally bumped into guy who’d been standing around the corner, “Ouch! Oh I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to – Hey!” Michael began to run but Lily was an uncommonly fast sprinter and caught him before he could get too far.

“What Lily! What?” Lily was confused and didn’t understand what the meaning of all this was.

“What’s the matter?” she whispered.

“Oh don’t pretend you didn’t do anything” Michael stared at her with his cold eyes.

“I’m not going to pretend, but I have no idea what you’re talking about!” yelled Lily

“You filthy little mudblood” he turned his back towards her and walked off with a seer on his face leaving Lily standing in the middle of the hallway, shocked.

“I…” Lily stood speechless for a few minutes and then she let out a high-pitched scream of despair.

Sirius Remus Lily Molly

The next day all everyone had to return to their classes. They all got through the earliest classes but when it came to History of Magic and double potions. At the end of the day they all returned to the common room, dragging their legs slowly behind them.

“Well that was torture” said Sirius as he sat down heavily on the couch letting out a deep sigh.

“Tell me about it” agreed Remus.

“Well first DADA was ok and then we had –” Sirius started but was soon interrupted by Remus who let out a muffled scream.

“It’s a figure of speech Sirius” he groaned as he stared at Sirius.

“Oh…” Sirius looked down at his knees and started drumming his fingers gently against them.

“Don’t be too hard on him” Molly hissed at Remus as she went over to Sirius and sat down next to him and softly slid her hand into his.

“Um…” a little boy had appeared behind Sirius, shivering and holding a note, “this is for you” he handed the note to Sirius and quickly ran from sight.

“That was…weird” said Sirius as he started to unfold the note. His eyes moved quickly from side so side as he read. In an instant he’d stood up and was running towards the portrait hole, dragging Molly along with him. He was running so fast she almost tripped.

“I think we’d better follow” Remus said softly to Lily and they both ran after Molly and Sirius. It took a few minutes for them to catch up but when they did they found them standing outside the entrance to Dumbledore’s office.

“Cockroach cluster” Sirius mumbled and the gargoyle in front of him sprang to life, revealing the stairs that led to Dumbledore’s office. All four of them rushed up the stairs and knocked loudly on the door. It took a minute before they could hear anything from behind the door and suddenly the door was magically unlocked and swung open. Inside Dumbledore was standing behind his desk and petting Fawks.

“That was quick. Didn’t expect you to arrive this fast” Dumbledore stepped out from behind his desk and walked towards the foursome, “follow me please”

As they made their way to their destination Sirius kept making glances at Molly who was walking silently beside him.

“This could be quite a shock” said Dumbledore with a note of alarm in his voice.
