Chapter 8: Wonderwall;

“You’ve got letters,” Emmeline said, raising her eyebrows knowingly at me as she handed me the letter. I had slept through breakfast and was now seated in the Common Room in a semi-vegetative state.


“Your family, amongst others,” she said cryptically.


I walked up into the dorm, first period was free this week, and I was actually excited to read these letters.

I tore open Ryan’s and read it eagerly. What am I, a nine year old?

Breathe. Don’t be desperate.



Actually, I had heard about that but I didn’t know you were seated directly behind him; you could’ve stunned him from behind and saved everyone a lot of trouble.

But really, I don’t think talking about this in letters is good, they are actually intercepting more and more. Why they would choose us is beyond me, but it’s possible and I’d hate to get us both killed. I’ll save the melodramatic lecture for the next time I see you. Interested in lunch sometime over Easter holidays?

Is that a date? No, right? Of course not.

My mum’s letter let me know that Callie had said ‘dada’ as her first word and Charlie had learned it because Callie always screams it when she seems mum.

Speaking of which, my parents are really worried about everything and each other. And my mum absolutely exploded when she found out how close I was to HIM. My mum sounded so weird. She’s up to something.

Immediately after lessons I had all Sterling children attending Hogwarts assembled in the library for some discussion on the current situation involving SOMETHING being different about mum.

“So, she is definitely up to something,” I said.

“You know mum, she is a horrible liar,” Chris said.

“But maybe it isn’t something bad. Maybe she’s just really worried about us and it’s coming off like she’s hiding something when she’s really just afraid we’re all going to die,” Connor said.

“No Con, she is hiding something and I know it,” I said.

“I’m not so sure,” he said.

“I’ve known her longer!” I joked.

“Yeah but she loves me most,” Chris said.

“Okay, ladies, let’s not have this argument,” I said, “but what do you think it is?”

“Another baby?” Chris joked.

We exchanged glances. “I doubt it,” I said.

“Maybe Marlene’s pregnant,” Connor said.

“No, I think its something to do with V-Voldemort,” I said, as they cringed slightly when I said his name.

“I hope it’s nothing bad,” Connor said.

“I hope it’s nothing at all,” I said.

“Well we will be home for Easter holidays April 3rd, and it’s pretty soon,” Chris said, “we’ll find out then. In the mean time, I will write Cody and see if he knows anything.”

“Good thinking,” I said.

“Meeting over?” Connor asked.

“Its over,” I said as we all went our separate ways.

Something is afoot!

My feet carried me straight to the Great Hall for dinner, and I loaded my plate with food the second I sat down.

“This one eats like food is going out of style,” Remus said, shaking his head.

I looked up, mouth clamped around a huge glob of mashed potatoes on my fork. Everyone laughed at me and I smiled as I continued to eat heartily. I was raised that way. You are hungry, you eat. Eat until you’re full. Simple.

“Oh did I tell you guys? Callie can say ‘dada’,” I said as Emmeline cheered.

“Yeah, and her next word will be ‘mine’. I’ll make sure of it,” I said, grinning.

I looked over at Sirius and my heart fluttered. Every single thing he did was cute. His expressions, his laugh, his smile was to die for. He is everything I wanted.

And I have always said exactly what I’m thinking to him, yet ‘I love you’ seems to be too hard to say. My mouth went dry just thinking it.

“So how did everyone do on their Charms exams?” Peter asked.

“I think I did absolutely dismally,” Emmeline said.

“It was so easy,” I exclaimed.

“You know, you got a lot smarter when you got with Sirius,” Emmeline said.

“Did I?” I asked.

“Cara, you are in Advanced Charms. This time last year I didn’t think you were making it into Average Charms,” James said.

“The amount of confidence in me you posses is stunning,” I said sarcastically.

I flicked a pea at his nose. He said no more.

“Why are the good broom closets always taken?” I groaned.

Sirius and I had been in the middle of a rather good snogging session, when we were kicked out of the classroom by Filch.

“It’s Wednesday night, not many people are usually in broom closets on Wednesday!” Sirius exclaimed.

“If this one has people in it then we are going to have to go back to the Common Room,” I exclaimed as I opened the one on the fourth floor, at the end of the hall.

“OY!” I exclaimed, as I caught sight of the people inside.

Lily and Alec were kissing the brains out of each other.

I exchanged a look with Sirius before closing the door.

I looked at him again before laughing, a little nervously.

“I really hope she doesn’t do anything stupid,” I said as he nodded.

“She wouldn’t,” he said.

“I hope not,” I said, now a little nervous about what Lily would actually do.

“Relax, trust her,” he said.

“You’re right. Ew, I hate saying that,” I said, smiling up at him.

“It’s so sexy when you’re sarcastic,” he said, grinning. And he kissed me.

And we weren’t even in a broom closet.

“BLACK!” He broke away and blushed slightly, looking up at the person who interrupted us sheepishly.

“Professor McGonagall, lovely evening,” I said, nodding. I was holding in a huge bout of laughter.

“Miss Sterling, please refrain from the public displays of affection in my presence,” she said sternly.

“Could you leave then, Professor?” Sirius asked. I snorted with laughter.

“Three points from Gryffindor,” she said, walking away.

We looked at each other and burst into laughter.

“You’ve got guts,” I said, continuing to laugh.

“I am a Marauder after all,” he said, grinning.

“You’re not just any Marauder.”

“No, I’m your Marauder,” he said.

Sirius Black had just pledged his Maraudership to me.

That’s big, my friends.

“No it wasn’t!”


“Sirius SHUT UP! You don’t know what you’re talking about!”



“Uh guys, your both wrong,” Remus said.

“NO I’M NOT!” Sirius and I said in unison.

Remus shook his head and smiled at us, muttering about how messed up our children would turn out.

I shook my head and sighed, tapping my toe restlessly. My anger was slowly evaporating.

“If I was to tell you it’s a turn on when you yell, what would you do?” he said, looking at me.

“This,” I said, kissing him.

Emmeline made gagging sounds, of course.

I smiled and so did he, and our kiss was broken early because we both started laughing.

We had been doing a lot of that lately.

There are so many things that I would
Like to say to you
But I don’t know how
So I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me?
And after all, you’re my wonderwall
Today was gonna be the day
But they’ll never throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you’re not to do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now
Wonderwall; Cartel

A/N- AHH shortness. Sorry. But yeah, this one was sort of a filler with some kinda semi important things obscurely mentioned, so it was nessecary. Sorry for the little patch of boringness here though, we'll get out of it soon! loll. Oh, and I know there is a version of Wonderwall by Oasis and I think that's the original but I like the Cartel version so its the person I credited it too! loll. Uh, please please please love itt.

Review, lovelies.
