Sirius grabbed her around the waist and stood up. Lily, terrified of being dropped, wrapped her legs around him and flung her arms around his neck. He kissed her again and then slide her onto the couch and laid on top of her.

"Now I'm on top of you."

Sirius kissed her over and over and she let him, without giving it a second thought.

Lily shifted in her sleep as the sun started to shine through the curtains in the Gryffindor common room. She has been having the strangest dream, it had involved Sirius and her. He hadn't been acting the way he did when he was with his little group of friends, or a pack of giggling admiring girls. There had been something about him that she actually liked......something about him had been different. She tried clinging to the dream as the golden sun rays shown bright in her eyes, but the dream was slipping, and it was time to wake up.

She decided, after a few moments of considering it, to open her eyes, great the day, and forget all about the dream. After all, what was it but more than a dream? Then all of a sudden she felt a movement underneath her. Startled, she squealed and fell from the couch she had been seemingly sleeping on.

The floor was cold and hard on her skin, which she found strange as her clothes should have kept the cold off her skin.

"Oh. I'm sorry Lil, did I scare you?" Sirius asked sleepily, looking over the edge of the couch.

"S-sirius?!" Lily stuttered. "W-what happened?"

Sirius looked at her, his head tilted slightly to the side, giving him the appearance of an overgrown puppy dog. "You don't remember?"

"N-no. Not really. Everything seems all like a dre......." Lily trailed off. Her dream had been a reality. She hadn't thought the entire thing up, she had done it. "Oh. my. goodness."

"It's ok Lil, really, your going to be fine. But how 'bout you come back up here, you look cold." He stuck out a hand for her and she took it.

Once she was back up on the couch and wrapped very tightly in a big blanket (having discovered that the reason for the floor being so cold was not because there was a fault in her clothing, it was that she wore very little), she contemplated her current situation.

"Hey," Sirius said, wrapping an arm around her covered shoulders and gave her a sort of one-armed hug. "Your ok. Promise me."

"I know that." She talked to the floor, but directed her words towards him. "I'm just trying to figure out how it all happened. And why I let it happen."

"You..., we, got caught in the moment. There's nothing to be worried about and there's nothing to regret."

"There's everything to regret!" She snapped.

"What, do you have a boyfriend?" He said calmly, squeezing her shoulders, a sign for her to calm down.


"Then there's nothing to worry about."

"There's everything to worry about!" Lily stood and faced him, her face blush with fury and embarrassment, still clutching the blanket around her. "I just slept with one of the most selfish, foolish, crazy, annoying boys in the school!"

Sirius shrugged. "You say all that like it's a bad thing."

"It is a bad thing!"

"What are you so afraid of Lily?" Sirius stood, he was facing her, but he didn't try to get close to her. Even though she didn't have her wand on her, she could be just as fierce without it if she wanted to be. "Afraid that your friends will disapprove?"

Lily blinked at him and didn't say anything. She gave herself to seconds to come up with an answer to that, but when none came, she turned on her heels and ran up the stairs to the girl's dormitory.

"Lily?" Sirius called, in a lower, softer voice, walking up to the bottom of the stairs leading up to where she had locked herself into.

No answer.

"Lily please?"

"Leave me alone!!"

Sirius sighed and walked back over to the couch. Siting down, he put his head in his hands and looked at the ground. This is going to be a very long vacation, he thought.
