Chapter 6: Lullabies;

“You are playing, Cara, and your going to win,” Emmeline said, tossing a brush and scrunchie at me.

“Yes Master,” I said as I put up my hair.

“Hey Lily, how do you feel about your darling Alec playing seeker against Cara today?” Dorcas asked.

“I am devastated, torn, I do not know how I will cope with having to choose which side to root for,” Lily joked melodramatically.

I grinned. “Dear, you are rooting for me, end of story,” I said as I finished applying makeup.

“Let’s win,” I said simply as we hurried down to the pitch.

About an hour later, my attempts to find the snitch were fruitless. Alec was tailing me closely, and I couldn’t see the snitch anywhere.

“Do I smell good, Fenwick?” I asked.


“Well you’ve been so close to me all game, you would know.”

He chuckled and kept a weather eye out looking for the snitch. My eyes darted back and forth just like his did. Skillfully, he managed to keep an eye on all parts of the pitch at once. I need to learn how to do that.

He saw it first. I inched my broom farther and farther towards the lead, I needed to win, if we won, we would have to beat Slytherin, and then we would face Hufflepuff in the Cup.

My heart was beating in my ears, the crowd cheered, someone announced Ravenclaw had scored. We were down by ten. I needed this snitch.

“How’s Lily?” I asked, trying to throw him.

“It's not working,” he said as we both huffed and puffed and tried to get that snitch first.

The snitch was a speedy little bugger. Those little wings sure do get it places, eh?

But at last, our epic battle ended when my hands firmly clasped the snitch, grabbing it about a millisecond before he did.

I grinned cheekily as he shook my hand and I ran off to be buried in a sweaty team hug.

Sirius was talking to James. I still had yet to say a word to Sirius.

Emmeline hugged me tightly.

“Still no talking?” she whispered.

“None,” I whispered back as she let go and I went off to get changed.

I lagged behind in the locker room. Putting things in my bag slowly, redoing my hair meticulously, putting jewelry on, and putting on cute clothes. Sirius would want to talk to me; I looked pretty cute for someone who had just partaken in strenuous physical activity.

“Good game,” James said, coming out of the boys end towards the actually co-ed locker area.

“Thanks, you didn’t do too bad yourself,” I said, sitting on the bench.

“Is she really dating Fenwick?” James asked suddenly, turning around to look at me.

I nodded. “James, she’ll come around eventually,” I said.

“I hope so.”

“What has Sirius been saying about me?” I asked.

He didn’t meet my eyes, guiltily. It was hard for him, having his two best friends go out and then have problems. He sort of had to choose. I know it would suck if him and Emmeline went out and then fought.

“Cara, he loves you, he really does. It’s not his fault you sort of just struck a nerve. And he lost it. He doesn’t want you exposed to what he has to go through. He moved out of his house for god sakes!”

I nodded. Sirius had run away over the summer. He went back in July for his mum’s annual birthday/huge gala dinner party.

And came back forty six hours later, bleeding with a bruise and some serious mental damage, the poor guy was so shaken up. I cried with him that night.

I needed to talk to him. Soon. I couldn’t do this. I can’t wait for him to apologize.

I needed that little bugger.

God, I have it bad, don’t I?

If you excuse me, I have a boyfriend to apologize to.

* * *

“SIRIUS!” I yelled. He turned around, his expression weird. I threw my arms around his neck, and his arms found their spot around me

“I am so sorry,” I whispered.

“Its okay, it was really my fault. I was wrong.”

“No, I wouldn’t drop it. Both of us were getting a little touchy,” I said, kissing his cheek as he spun me around. It was one of those amazing hugs where he spins you and holds you real tight and he smells good so when he moves you get this amazing aroma of good-smelling boy.

Best apology ever. All I had to do was throw myself at him.

That’s all I could do.

Hand in hand we headed down to the kitchens for some strawberry ice cream.

“So I got a letter from Andromeda,” he said.

“Oh really?” I said, genuinely interested, “what did it say?”

“It was all about how she felt when she was disowned and how I could talk to her about what I was feeling towards my mum, no matter how many profanities I used. It actually made me feel better, cheesy as it sounds.”

“That’s good, that’s really good. My mum actually likes being disowned. Although I am almost positive she is getting inside information from someone. She knows too much pureblood gossip.”

“I think disowning is a stupid concept,” Sirius said.

“How so, love? Getting a loophole, like a way to be rid of your family definitely? It could be a blessing in disguise,” I said.

“Yeah, but it’s like; so you’re my mum, you raised me, but you are just going to forget I ever existed completely? Like I was nothing? Ever?”

“You are something,” I said, leaning my head on his shoulder.

“Thank God someone thinks so,” he said.

“So, what do you think about the Alec/Lily relations going down?” I said.

“Nice topic change?”

“No, really.”

“I think James is going to need a couple more tissues after the rumor I heard about them two. Is it true that they went pretty far in the restricted section?”

I laughed. “Knowing Lily, never. Libraries are too sacred.”

He grinned and smeared ice cream on my face just to kiss it off.

My boyfriend was back.

Inward squeal!

* * *

“Yeah Hestia, I would say he is the best kisser to walk the earth,” Lily said, laughing.

“Wow, better then Ryan?” I asked.

“You would know,” she shot back playfully.

“Now, now Ladies, we wouldn’t want anyone to end up with magenta skin,” Emmeline joked.

I laughed. “So any other juicy gossip?”

“Apparently Alecto is engaged to some guy. Well, promised. Arranged marriages. She’s of age though, right?” Alice said.

“Yeah. She is. Poor girl. I heard it was a Malfoy,” Lily said.

“Oh God. Alecto? In my family? No thank you,” I said.

“Wait! You never told us, I am guessing you and Sirius are okay again, right?” Emmeline said.

“Yeah, definitely,” I said, winking.

They all howled with laughter and cat-calls. I love a day that ends with some good ole fashioned girl time at night. A nice way to end everything.

“How’s Frank?” Dorcas asked.

“Great. His hair is longer. And they got to out last Friday and apparently Gideon got so drunk they had to levitate him home. But Gid has been getting some girl action lately,” Alice said.

“With who?” I said.

“Oh some girl at Auror Training Camp. Apparently she’s all the rage.” We laughed.

“All the rage? Like…spandex?” Emmeline said.

“No, as in…she’s what all he boys are into,” Lily explained.

“Literally,” Alice said as we all cracked up.

Gotta love her.

Dead – Like a candle you burned out;
Spill the wax over the spaces left in place of angry words.
Scream- to be heard, like you needed any more attention
Throw the bottle, break the door, and disappear.
Sing me to sleep; I'll see you in my dreams, waiting to say,
“I miss you. I’m so sorry.”
Forever's never seemed so long as when you're not around
It’s like a piece of me is missing
I could have learned so much from you but what's left now?
Lullabies; All Time Low

A/N- I loved this chapter. I wrote it in an hour. It was so much fun, and I don't even know why. LISTEN TO ALL TIME LOW. I mean really, they are sexy and his voice is amazing and their lyrics are good. What more could you want? So uh, if you uys are lucky I'll update again later since its still only 12:30 and there is enough time for you guys to all read this one and then I can put the next one out and finish chapter nine all in one day. But this could all be changed if I go to the mall. Do you guys even really care? No. Didn't think so.
