"I'll see you later then."
James watched as Lily walked away. It wasn't until she turned the corner and dissappeared from his sight, that he snapped back to reality. A bright smile played slowly on his face; realizing that he and Lily were actually friends. He needed to tell someone.
He jogged down an empty corridor and looked around before knocking a tune on a big wooden door. James mentally counted the seconds in his head; 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 . . .
"Yes James?" Sirius asked in a somewhat annoyed tone as his head popped out from behind the door.
James smirked at his friends' messy - haired, halfway unbuttoned stature, "Who've you got in there this time?"
"In here?" Sirius looked over his shoulder, then back at James, "No one."
"Ha. Ha. Funny. You're only in this room when you're sucking face with some girl. You even taught me the 'secret knock' to use when I think you're in there, and to wait approximately five seconds before actually opening the door, otherwise, waiting for you to swing it open," James smiled, "So did she come on her own will ? Or did you have to use magic again ?"
Sirius grinned, "I'll have you know Prongs, that the female species are naturally attracted to me."
A loud yelp of laughter sounded from inside. James raised a brow curiously.
"She sounds fimiliar."
Sirius leaned against the doorframe, and pulled the door close to him so that James wasn't able to see inside, "Really ? Well, I don't think you know her."
James looked at Sirius and shook his head, "I need to tell you something."
"Is it important ?"
"So important that you need to tell me right now, this very minute ?"
Sirius smiled, "Do tell, my friend."
"Okay well, you know how I like to have some me - time down by the lake ?" James began as he watched his bestfriend nod his head, "Lily came to sit beside me, and she apologized and asked for a truce."
Sirius' mouth propped wide open.
James heard a loud thump come from inside the room and the sound of footsteps approaching the door. Sirius was jerked back, and 'the girl' stood in his place; she looked at James in surprise, "She did what?!"
Abbey's eyes widened as realization slowly washed over her. She took in a breath then smiled, "Whoops . . . er - Sir, I think I just blew our cover."
The door creaked open and Sirius appeared, at Abbey's side. He scratched the back of his head, "Yes, Abbey. I think you did."
James pointed to the couple and opened his mouth to say something, but no words came out. He blinked, then laughed. "This is a joke, right ? It's either a joke, or today has been a dream - someone, please, pinch me."
Abbey shrugged, "My pleasure," she grabbed a chunk of the skin on his arm, and pinched.
"Ow," James yanked back his arm, "Merlin - fine, this isn't a dream." He looked over at Sirius, who now had his arm around Abbey's shoulder; James grinned, "Going for the ones who actually have a peice of mind now, eh Padfoot ?"
Sirius smiled, "If you think she has a peice of mind, then sure, I guess I am."
Abbey punched him playfully in the arm.
"So . . . " James asked, "Why didn't I know about this ?"
Abbey looked up at Sirius as he shrugged, "Not so sure, actually."
"But we have been thinking about going public with this for some time now," Abbey finished.
James raised a brow, "And how long has that been ?"
"The whole time we were together, I guess," she replied.
"And how long is that ?"
"Since fifth year," Sirius answered casually.
"Christmas - fifth year," Abbey piped in happily.
James looked at the two of them, completely dumbfounded. Okay, so it was understandable about the two being together, but since fifth year's Christmas ? Lily asking for peace was more than enough for James to handle in one day. But to find out that his bestfriend was dating Lily's bestfriend for almost a year . . . well it was difficult to process in a mere two hours.
"James ? `Elloooo . . . " Abbey snickered as she waved a hand infront of his face.
Sirius chuckled, "I think this truce he speaks of, and his bestfriend not telling him that he's been dating the love of his life's bestfriend for almost a year, is way too much for old Prongs here to manage."
James blinked hard, "Yes . . . well, congratulations to you two," he said in almost a question. "And yes . . . I guess me and Lily are friends . . . wow, did I really just say Lily, I, and friends in the same sentence ?"
"I think you did mate," Sirius smiled sheepishly.
"Oww . . . I need to find Lily," Abbey said happily.
Sirius frowned, "What about me ?"
She raised a brow, "What about you ?"
"Well aren't we going to spend time together . . . in there ?" He looked at the wooden doors, then at Abbey, waggling his eyebrows up and down.
James grunted. Yes, this was definately going to need some getting use to.
"No," Abbey said plainly as she walked out of Sirius' arms, "I, am going to see Lily."
"I really dislike you right now," Sirius pouted as he watched Abbey walk away.
"Oh no you don't, you love me," she called back at him.
"Yes, I know ! I was just saying I dislike you so you could stay here with me ! But it obviously didn't work ! Get with the program darling !" Sirius yelled.
James watched as Abbey winked and waved goodbye to the two boys. He turned towards Sirius once Abbey was out of sight, "Honestly Padfoot, it's just really weird to hear that you've been with a girl for more than a week. Or rather, three days. Three whole days."
Sirius shrugged, a bright smile was smacked on his face, "She's different."
James looked at Sirius as a smile smirk crawled upon his face, "Has my dearest Padfoot thrown his heartthrob personality to the gallows and finally fall in love ?"
Sirius furred a brow, "What's this talk about gallows, Prongs ? I mean seriously - that little truce must've screwed up that crazy mind of yours."
James laughed, "Well . . . let's just say, I've made a new friend. And I'm happy."
Sirius smiled, but quickly pressed his lips together, "This is getting awfully touchy . . . and really, really, awkward. I think I'm sleeping in the common room tonight."
Author's Note ; OKAY ! well, i hoped you loved it. and yes, I decided to make Abbey and Sirius' announcment public sooner rather than later, only because i have bigger and better plans, that have been recently bestowed upon my tiny mind. ;) and yes, this chapter i really kinda loved it. it puts emphasis on James' and Sirius' friendship, and of course, Abbey and Sirius' relationship. =D well, i was excited to write it, hope you're just as excited to read it. =) oh yes, and i'm on vacation. for another week. see, what my family is doing is bringing the kids (yes, i'm considered a kid, even though I am 15) back and forth from one relatives' house to the other's; and back and forth and back and forth. so i WILL be writing, but won't be posting for another week. ;) thanks for the patience guys. oh ! and thanks for the lovely reviews on the previous chapter !!
