*the plot and oc's are mine, the rest belongs to J.K.



The Halloween Ball had come and there were shortened classes, so the students of Hogwarts had time to get ready for the dance. There was so much commotion going on in the girls' dormitory, one would be made to believe that there were 20 people in there.

"Where are my earrings? Those matched my dress perfectly," Niki said buzzing around the room in a fuss.

"They're in your jewelry box," Shay said putting the finishing touches on her hair.
Niki looked in her jewelry box.

"Oh, I must have missed them."



It was 6:50 and the boys were waiting down in the common room for their dates.

"Where are they?" James asked getting antsy.

"I don't know. They're probably just finishing up," Remus said.

"Merlin, why am I so nervous? It's just a dance right? I mean Shay's probably not this nervous," Sirius said pacing.

"Of coarse not mate. You two are going to have a great time. We all are," Remus said sensibly.


"Merlin, I feel like I'm going to puke," Shay said starting to freak out.

"No you're not. You're just nervous. But don't be, you're going to have a great time tonight," Lily said calming her down.

"You're right. I'm being stupid. Let's go down, they boys are probably waiting."


Sirius, James, and Remus were all sitting around waiting for the girls. Peter had gone already to get his date. They heard foot steps coming down the stairs and they got up as fast as they could. When they got a first glimpse of the girls, their jaws dropped. All three of them were speechless so the girls talked first.

"You guys look nice tonight," Niki said then gave Remus a hug and kiss.

"Well you three look gorgeous. You're going to be the most beautiful girls down there," James said taking Lily in his arms.

"Come on you guys. We are already late," Shay said linking arms with Sirius.



They arrived at the Great Hall and it looked amazing. The ceiling was dark and mysterious. The hall was lit by floating jack-o-lanterns and candles.

"Wow, Lily, James, Remus, you guys and the other prefects really outdid yourselves. This looks amazing," Shay said.

"Thanks" they said a little embarrassed.

They all entered the crowd of people and started dancing and socializing.



It was very hard for Shay and Sirius to have time with each other at the dance. It seemed as if the two of them having a good time just wasn’t meant to be. It was as if it was everyone’s agenda to interrupt Shay and Sirius at every available moment. Girls were pushing Shay out of the way to get to Sirius. Shay had to be refrained from pulling one girl’s hair out. Sirius almost had an altercation of his own. There was one boy in particular who wouldn’t leave Shay alone. James had to intervene so Sirius wouldn’t get in trouble.

"Come on let's get something to drink," Sirius said shaking another girl off him.

"Good idea" Shay said giving the girls dirty looks.


They got their juice and sat down at a table.

"Wow, this is insane," Shay said taking a drink of her juice wishing it was a fire whiskey.

"Yea, you'd think people would be satisfied with their own date," Sirius said and Shay shook her head.

She stared out at the dance floor. Lily, James, Niki, and Remus looked like they were having such a great time and Shay felt jealous.


"Oh, I forgot to tell you. James and I are having a party in the common room after the dance," Sirius said.

"But Sirius we were going to spend some time together after the dance," Shay said and gave him a look.

"Yea, we can spend time together at the party," Sirius said like it was no big deal.

"No Sirius, I meant alone time," Shay said and felt a little hurt.

"Ok, we can go to the party then go off on our own."

Shay gave him a furious look.

"You just don't get it!"

Shay stood up abruptly and walked out of the hall all while Sirius was calling her back.



Shay walked down to the lake and sat down in a huff. She was fuming. She found some rocks and started throwing them in the lake. She stopped when she hit the giant squid with a rock.

"Oops. Sorry."

She sat there for a while longer until she heard a voice.


"'Ello there Shay. Why are yer out here an' not at the dance?"

Shay turned around and saw Hagrid standing there.

"Oh hello Hagrid. You startled me a little. I was at the dance until my boyfriend decided to be a jerk."

Hagrid sat next to Shay.

"May I ask why yer boyfriend is being a jerk?"

"Ok we were going to spend some time together after the dance, because during the dance is so crazy. Well Sirius just told me that he and James are having a party after the dance. And I just feel like sometimes he cares more about partying and drinking than he does me."

"Shay yeh got to remember that ev'ryone makes mistakes. I may not be a relationship expert, but it sounds like yeh love 'em an' he loves you. An' that's all yeh need. I'm not saying that yeh shouldn' be mad at 'em, but just remember this. Yeh two have your whole lives to spend together."

Shay looked up Hagrid and gave him a hug.

"Thanks Hagrid. You’re a awesome relationship guru."


"Hey Shay, can we talk?"

Shay heard Sirius's voice and turned her head.

"Yea, sure."

"Well, I'll leave yeh two to talk," Hagrid said while getting up and patted Sirius on the shoulder.

Sirius plopped down next to Shay and started playing with a piece of grass.

"Shay I'm sorry for being a jackass. I should have asked you about the party. I just thought you would be ok with it."

"Sirius, it's ok. I mean, I was mad and I had every right to be, but now I'm over it. And plus a good friend told me that we have our whole lives to spend together. So I figured this time we can party."


Sirius leaned over and gave Shay a kiss.

"Did I tell you how amazing you looked tonight?"

"Yes, but it's always good to hear that again," Shay said giving him another kiss.

"Well, its 10:30 right now, so we have a half hour to go."

"I want to stay out here for a while. Nobody can interrupt us out here."

They could hear the people and music going on inside and they heard a slow song come on. Sirius stood up and held out his hand.

"May I have this dance?" Shay took his hand and got up.

"Did you notice every time we dance its outside," Shay said.

"Yea, but that's what I love about us. We are not an ordinary couple. We are much, much more."



They showed up to the party fashionably late.

"Hey! Where have you guys been?" James asked loudly.

Shay and Sirius could tell he was drunk.

"We had to get away from the dance for a while."

They dived right into the party, fraternizing with their friends and younger Gryffindors. The 7th years had way too much to drink and they were a sight for everyone to see. It consisted of drunken spell casting, many people falling and tripping over themselves, and James wanted to fly out of the window but a 6th year had enough sense to stop him.



The party wound down and only Sirius, Shay, James, Lily, and Peter were left down stairs. The younger kids went to their dormitories and Niki and Remus disappeared like always. James and Lily had fallen asleep together on the couch and Peter fell asleep on a table. Sirius was sitting on the floor against the chair and Shay was laying down with her head in his lap.

"Tonight was fun," Shay said.

"I told you."

"I want to give you a present," Shay said.

"What?"

Shay started to unzip his pants.

"What are you doing?" Sirius asked laughing.

Shay didn't answer.

"Shay? Shay?"

He saw that she fell asleep.

"Oh great, just my luck."

Sirius passed out soon after.



They were sleeping soundly till the next morning when they heard a strange voice.

"Well isn't this a site?"
