I tapped my fingers on the top of the wooden table in the Three Broomsticks waiting for Adam to come back with our drinks. The date had been going wonderfully. Adam had picked me up and we walked here. We talked and laughed and he had even held my hand! Lily had done my hair in pretty curls and Carrie had lent me a nice outfit. I really liked Adam, he was such a sweet guy.

"Did he ditch you already?" A scowl was planted on my face as I was yanked out of my thought and I turned towards the familiar voice.

"No, he's getting us drinks!" I snapped at Sirius. I hadn't talked to him since last night.

"You sure? Because I thought I saw him leave."

"Siri, can we go!" Giselle said. She was clutching his arm and leaning against him so much it looked like at any second she was going to rip off his clothing and do it with him right there. "I want to meet up with Delia and Samantha!" How could Sirius like someone so whiney.

"You're lying." I said turning my back to him and facing the bar scanning it. Now that I thought about it, I hadn't seen Adam for a while, but I refused to admit he had ditched me because that would hurt too much...

"This is what-"

"Sirius! Come ON. They said they were going to head back at noon and it's already eleven thrity."

"Shut up, Giselle!" Sirius burst, and even I jumped slightly. I looked at him to see Giselle look like she was on the verge of tears. Then her expression turned to anger.

"Well," she said stepping away from him and shaking her hair. "You can forget about our plans for tonight, and I am going to go and find Delia." Then she was gone. I turned back to my table, and Sirius slid into the seat across from me looking annoyed.

"I knew this would happen."

"What? That Giselle would refuse to shag you tonight?" I said annoyance in my own voice. I really didn't want to talk to him.

"No. That this guy would ditch you."

"First of all, he did NOT ditch me. Second, you said he only wanted to snog me as I recall." That shut him up and we sat their in silence glaring at each other. "Why are you being shut a freakin' jerk?!" I said before I could stop myself.

His eyes widened at me, like he didn't know that he was being so mean. "I'm trying to protect you."

"Protect me, my ass!" Wow, I never use profanity, but suddenly I was really upset. Maybe it was because Sirius had insulted me because he thought no guy could ever truly like me. Or maybe it was because I had just seen Adam turn a street corner outside the window with his arm around another girl...

"I don't even know this guy, who knows that he's not a jerk?"

"I knew!" I said then embarrassingly enough I felt tears dripping down my cheeks. When would I learn? When would I learn that all guys were jerks? I had never once had a good experience with any guy! I thought Adam had been perfect! Or the closest I could find... "At least I thought I did..." I said quietly.

Then Sirius was next to me, trying to comfort me, but I shoved him off. I hated that he was right, and I was sick of crying over guys. I hurried off and pushed out into the brisk, cool air. I walked quickly wiping the tear away furiously. I thought I heard someone calling my name, but I ignored it. There was a cluster of trees a little bit off and I went over to it and sat on a rock just beyond the line of trees.

I pulled my legs against myself, hugging them. I hated Sirius!

I sat there for a while. I wasn't crying anymore, I had only let a couple tears leaked and those were the ones that Sirus had seen.

I wasn't sure how much time had passed, but suddenly I heard yelling in the distance. It sounded like arguing.

I sat there listening, but I couldn't make out the words, and eventually curiousity got the best of me and I got up and headed towards the voices. I know it was wrong, but I'm naturally a curious person, and I couldn't help myself.

Reaching the end of the trees I saw Giselle and Sirius standing there, both looking angry. I slid behind a nearby tree to hide myself.

"Admit it, Sirius!"

"Giselle, just calm down!"

"You're in love with her!"

"I am not in love with her!"

"Then you certainly think about a girl you don't love an awful lot!" I suddenly felt guilty; maybe I shouldn't be listening to this. I thought about moving but I couldn't help it. I hate to admit it, but I really liked gossip.

"I care about her, that's all!"

"No, Sirius, that's obviously not all!"

"She's like my sister!"

"Maybe that how it use to be, but not anymore! I'm tired of you talking about her all the time! I'm tired of you pushing me away from you when she's around! And I'm tired of you ignoring me for her!'

"There's nothing going on!"

"Is that all you can say?! You know it's true Sirius! I'm not going to just be here for your physical needs! I'm not just going to be that girl you can call on when ever you want to be pleased!" 

I had to hold back a laugh, because it was pretty obviously that all they did was snog when they were with each other.

They were silent and had a stare down which seemed to last forever.

"So what do we do now?" Sirius said calmly.

"If you want to stay with me, I don't want you to talk to her anymore... Ever."

"I can't do that, Giselle.."

"Then... we're over." Giselle said quietly. She turned to go, but then looked back at him. "A word of advice: You won't get anywhere by making her angry." Then she was gone.

I sat on a wooden bench in front of Honeydukes clicking my heels together thinking. I didn't want to go back yet, I was hoping I would run into Adam and talk to him about stuff, but I hadn't seen him for a long time.

I just couldn't believe that he would do that to me, but I guess you can get blindsided.

I tucked my hair behind my ears and pulled my cloak a little tighter around me; it was getting cold out.

I wonder what Lily's doing, and whether or not James found her. They really would make a cute couple. I don't know, just something about them seemed so perfect despite her protests. I know that she really did like him, she just didn't know it yet. 

"Gabby?" I looked up into dazzling green eyes. Adam.

"Hey," was all I could think to say, then I found my voice. "Where are the drinks?"

"Oh, Gabby, I'm so sorry." He said looking tired and flopping down on the bench beside me.

"I doesn't matter. If you like another girl I understand." I said looking down at my feet.

"Oh, Gabs, no." He said reaching for my hand. "It's not that."

"It's okay, really." I said smiling weakly and tugging my hand back, but he held it firmly.

"Gabby," He said sternly looking me in the eye. "I was in the Three Broomsticks, and I saw my sister outside crying. I was going to tell you but you were talking to Sirius Black, and she was walking rather quickly away. I'm really sorry. Man, I'm so stupid, I should have told you where I was going. But I had to catch up with my sister, she looked so upset."

I felt my heart tug slightly, and I couldn't help but grin. He hadn't ditched me! And he was really caring.

"I'm really sorry."

"You said that already." I said smiling up at him. He grinned back looking relieved. "So is your sister okay?"

He leaned back against the wooden back of the bench and pulled me a little closer to him. "I don't know, but her friends took over the comforting. You know that jerk I was telling you about? The one who liked her?"

"The one you turned her hair green for. Yep."

"Yeah, well, I was right. He is a jerk, and he really hurt her." When he didn't elaborate I didn't pry.

"I wouldn't like another girl, Gabby.' He said, abruptly going back to the other subject. "Only you." I smiled as a gust of cold wind blew and I bravey snuggled against his side for warmth and he wrapped his arm around my shoulder holding me close.

A/N: WOAH! I haven't updated this in so long. Sorry the chapter sorta moved quickly, but I really wanted to get this out and I've had the HUGEST writer's block in history, so I settled for this. Sorry I didn't show the beginning of their date, it's because that the part I had no idea to write and it was giving me a lot of trouble, so I sort of skipped over it. Don't hate me...
