Chapter Six: Kiss and Makeup

A/N: Thanks as always to Jackie! You are a goddess! And since she enjoyed this little chapter so much I am dedicating it to her! Enjoy everyone and thank you for the lovely reviews!

On that last week of October, Dumbledore announced that fifth years and up were having a Halloween party and costumes were required. Lily and Amy were very excited at the idea and began discussing what each would wear. Just then, quite fortuitously, Amy received a package, addressed in Donna’s loopy hand writing. Like a child on Christmas morning, Amy ripped off the paper and opened the package. There was a neatly addressed letter and something else wrapped in brown tissue paper.

Our Dearest Amy,
We miss you so much! Well, I really really miss you and I think Michelle does, because she hasn’t taken off your clogs since you left! Happy Early Halloween! I hope you have a good one, all the way over there! Chicago is the same and so is M cubed (Magical Mistresses Manor). I hope you made friends and gave those jerks we met at that conference hell! I’m sure you did! Anyways, you’re probably wondering what this mysterious package is. Remember how you and I decided we’d see what it was like to be blonde bimbos this year? Well, we ordered the costumes and I couldn’t cancel the order when you left. So here it is! The spells for changing your hair are also attached! Have a great Halloween and write us soon!
Donna & Michelle
Ps. Your Mom is on the cover of Newsweek again, I put it in there too!

Amy laughed aloud and set down the letter.
“It’s from my friends, in Chicago.” She explained to Lily.
Lily smiled and picked up the letter.
“Your friend is funny; I can see why you got along.” Lily smiled.

Amy took out the magazine and rolled her eyes at the photograph of her screaming mother. Finally, she found the costume; it was a sparkly silver corset-like top, with pieces of fluffy white cotton outlining the chest and smooth black cotton over the hips. Black leggings, white pointed boots with the same fluffy cotton pieces around the top were underneath the corset. The finishing touches were the white bunny ears headband, fluffy cotton like bracelets, a packet of four sticky silver beads to go on either side of her eyes and a little bunny tail to attach to the back of the corset.

“Oh, jeez that is one outfit! McGonagall will have a fit!” Lily laughed at the sight of it.
Amy smiled wickedly.

“You know this would be a great prank!” She said, suddenly.

“What do you mean?” Lily asked.

“The final prank, playing with Sirius’ attraction to blonde bimbos.” Amy explained, grinning.

“You are something else.” Lily said, shaking her head.

The week seemed to drag on slowly, as all the sixth years waited for the big party. It seemed as if Halloween would never come. Amy waited anxiously to wear her costume. She couldn’t wait to see the look on Sirius’ face. Finally, Friday came and the castle was decorated for Halloween. Levitating, talking pumpkins were in the halls, charmed floating bats hung on the ceiling, and many cauldrons filled with candy-corn were scattered through out the castle. The night dragged on until the feast which lasted forever. The students were dismissed to change into their costumes and were to come to the Great Hall at eight o’clock.

Amy took a shower, making her hair smell of strawberries and cream, slipped into her risqué bunny outfit, applying black mascara and eyeliner, pink lipstick, a little blush, and light blue eye shadow to go along with the silver beads. She blinked as she moved her contacts in place, praising God that she didn’t have to wear her glasses anymore.
Amy pulled out the white slip of paper, which had the spells she needed on.

Amy pointed her wand at her hair, and said,” Flavus capilli. Within seconds her dark brown hair washed away, replaced by a soft platinum blonde hue.
“One down, one to go.” Amy sighed, pointing wand at her hair once more, reading off the next spell.
Longior extendere.”
Her hair was no longer curly, but long and straight as a board.

Amy pushed the bathroom door open and sauntered over to Lily, who nearly fell to the floor, laughing at the sight.
“That is just great. Perfect.” Lily smiled.
Amy looked her best friend over, Lily’s fiery red hair was swept up in elegant curls, sparkling in a tiara, her brilliant green eyes were accompanied with just the right amount of eye makeup to make them sparkle more than they usual did. Her white ballroom gown fell to the floor with a large hoop shaped skirt.

“So what are you?” Amy asked, taken aback by Lily’s gorgeous beauty.

“I’m an opera singer.” She smiled, confidently.

“Shall we go, my dear.” Amy grinned, sticking out her arm.
Lily looped it with hers and made their way to the party.
Once they walked to the Great Hall, Lily stopped Amy.
“I’m gonna go in first, I want you to make the same kind of entrance you did, in the dormitory. Blow them all away.” Lily explained, hugging her friend and walking inside.

“So,” Sirius drawled, waltzing up to Lily,” where’s your lesbian lover?”
“Oh, she’ll be here soon.” Lily said, trying to hide her smile.
The large oak doors swung open and Sirius’ mouth fell at the figure that sauntered through the doors. It was Amy---but it wasn’t, she looked different…she looked really…dare he say it, at the risk of sounding very American…hot. The whole party hushed at the sight of Amy.

“Here, I am!” She said, in a sensual tone, throwing her hands in the air.

“God, she looks so hot.” Sirius muttered, moving closer to her.

“Don’t do it, Sirius! It’s a trap! She’s a she-devil, remember.” James
warned him, stepping in front of his friend.

“Maybe that’s why she’s so smokin’.” Sirius said, pushing James out of the way.

A large smile made its way over Amy’s pink lips as Sirius moved through the students over to her, by the punch table.
She laughed in the sexiest way, she could muster up.
It seemed to work because Sirius came dangerously close to her.

“Oh, ho ho ho, don’t you look cute,” Amy said, playfully tugging at the black dog ears attached to his head,” but didn’t anyone bother to tell you? This is a costume party. I think there’s one of your blonde bimbos, over there.”

Sirius didn’t even bother to turn around, instead he waved his hand casually, reminding Amy, a little of Remus.

“You, look amazing.” Sirius said, looking her over very slowly.

“Why, thank you, that means a lot coming from you, too bad I’m a lesbian.” Amy retorted, keeping the same sexy tone.
An image of Sirius ripping off that playful little bunny outfit danced in his head, as she moved in closer to him.

“Oh, Amy, I think we should make a truce.” Sirius said, placing a hand on her shoulder.

“I don’t know if James will agree to that.” Amy said, pushing his hand off and waltzing away.
Sirius was too lightheaded to move as he watched Amy walk up to Remus.

“Hi.” She smiled, at him.

“T-That’s some outfit.” Remus said, nearing spraying his punch on her.

“Yeah, maybe. Sirius suggested a truce, seeing as you’re the only one I remotely trust, I came to ask your opinion.” Amy explained.

“Well, tonight, I think Sirius’ pants are controlling his actions more than his brain. But playing Benedict Arnold, I would say, take the offer, before he comes to his senses.” Remus smiled, at her.

“Thank you. By the way, I really love the pirate look.” Amy winked, tugging at his black eye patch before walking away. Remus smiled. After she left, James went up to him.

“What were you talking about?” He asked, suspicious.

“Sirius told her that you’re making a truce.” Remus said, dismissively, sipping his punch.

“Damn it!” James spat, stamping his foot on the ground.

“Um, James, your deer hunter hat is crooked.” Remus pointed out.
James quickly fixed it, before storming over to Sirius.

“How could you make a truce?” He demanded.

“I didn’t, she said you wouldn’t agree to it.” Sirius said, eyes still locked on Amy as she made her way around the party.

“Good.” James muttered, panting heavily.

“We’re still gonna make one, we have to, if I want to kiss and makeup.” Sirius went on, a smile forming on his lips at the idea.

“What? You’re gonna try to kiss that!” James asked, incredulously.

“That, happens to be the hottest girl at this party, save for Evans. Who is looking very lonely by the way, so shoo.” Sirius snapped, pushing James away.

“You are unbelievable!” James said, throwing his hands up in the air, stomping away.
After her dramatic entrance and her conversation, with Sirius, Amy got very bored. She went to find Lily who was talking two flaming redheads that looked exactly alike.

“Oh, Amy, this is Gideon and Fabian Prewett, or just the Prewett twins. Guys, this is Amy.” Lily introduced.
The one called Fabian whistled approvingly.

“That is quite the outfit.” Gideon said.
Amy smiled smugly in response.

“I was going for shock value.” She replied.

“Well you…” Fabian began.

“… got it, love.” Gideon finished. Amy had the feeling they finished each others sentences quite often.

“Come with me, Amy.” Lily said, grabbing her hand.

“Nice to meet you.” Amy said, as she was dragged away.

“The pleasure was ours.” Gideon winked.
Out of the corner of her eye, she saw Fabian pull out a wizard camera and quickly took a snapshot of her, as she walked away.
Lily stopped in front of a short blonde girl with a round face and a cheery smile, next to a boy of medium height with brown hair, and an equally charming smile.

“This is Alice Newton and this is her sweetheart, Frank Longbottom. This is Amy March.” Lily said, proudly.

“Nice to meet you.” Amy smiled, shaking their hands.

“You’re outfit is…different.” Alice said, politely.

“Thank you.” Amy said, plainly. She was getting a little tired of the respectable comments about her outfit, if they wanted to say she looked provocative, say it!

“Well, I’m going to keep perusing around the party, it was nice meeting you.” Amy said, walking away once more.
When she finally sat down, Sirius came to talk to her again.

“Being scandalous is tiring, huh?” He teased, claiming the sit next to her.

“You know it.” Amy said, in a bored tone.

“So when are you gonna forgive me?” He asked, turning his whole body towards her.
She decided to continue the act, and placed her one hand on his shoulder and ran the other through his black hair.

“I don’t know, when do you want me to?” She asked, relishing in the power she held over him, at the moment.

“Now…” He said, once more coming dangerously close to her face.

“I’ll think about it.” Amy said, playfully.

“Please.” Sirius pleaded, stuck out his lower lip with grey eyes opened wide.

He really looked like a puppy dog now
Amy threw her head back, as she laughed.

“All right, I forgive you.” Amy smiled.
Sirius grinned widely at her; it became even wider when she smiled back. Wait a second! She thought. Was she really flirting with him? Oh, my God! I am!
