I don't remember how long I was dancing with him, I just remember that I enjoyed it. It was weird. I always thought it was a rule that every girl he danced with Sirius made a move on... but he was a perfect gentlemen. Well... sort of... he wasn't really a conservative dancer, but who was at seventeen?

Suddenly, I noticed that the crowd was gone, and that there were people leaving, and others passed out on the couches. Then the music changed, and it was the infamous last dance slow song. I wasn't exactly sure what to do. I had only danced this dance with Remus, and it felt weird to do it with Sirius when we were just friends, if we were even that.

I started to pull away, but he just smiled at me and pulled me back. "Don't worry, Marcotte. I'm not going to kiss you." I laughed a little, as he reached for my left hand and put the other on my waist quite gentlemen-like.

"Are we going to do the waltz?" I asked smiling at how far apart we were.

"If you would like." Then out of no where he actually began to waltz. Of course, resulting in me stepping on his feet because I had no idea what I was doing.

"Are you trying to kill me?" He asked laughing and feigning intense pain in his foot.

"Sorry," I said, slightly embarrassed.

"It wasn't a waltzing song anyway..." He said, then he gave me the genuine smile again reavealing his dimple, and I couldn't help but smile back. "It's nice to see you smile again."

I sighed, remembering why exactly I hadn't been smiling too much lately.

"Sorry I brought it up." He said quietly, sensing my mood shift.

"It's okay." I said looking away. "Does he hate me?"

"Who?"

"Remus." Who else?

I felt him shrug. "No, I think he's just hurt."

"I feel so horrible."

"Don't," he said gently. "Okay? He hurt himself." I couldn't answer. I knew that wasn't true though, I had hurt him. "Come on, cheer up." He said, pulling me closer and wrapping his arms around my waist, and I rested my head on his shoulder. I closed my eyes, and remembered last year, when it was Remus who was holding me...

When I opened my eyes, I screamed.

"What the hell?" Sirius said alarmed lifting his head from where it had been resting on me, and pulling back to look at me with a confused look. I covered my mouth in astonishment, and pointed across the empty dance floor to the dark corner. There in the shadows were James and Lily... snogging. "Whoa." Sirius said, equally astonished."

"Oh merlin." I whispered, thinking that I was imagining things. "Oh my gosh. Oh my goodness. When did this happen?"

"Well when two people want to show affection..." Sirius started mocking a teacher's voice. I hit him in the stomach.

"Not what I meant." He laughed.

"Oh come, it had to happen some time. I mean he has been obsessed with her for years now."

"But... wow, I just wasn't ready for it." I smiled, "Good for them though. Now that I'm over the shock, they look like a cute couple." Then I noticed something. "How long has there been no music playing?"

"I don't know, like five minutes?"

"Wow, I didn't notice." I said thoughtfully.

"Me either." Sirius said almost too quiet for me to hear.

"Time?" I said as I walked over to the couch where I saw Jack passed out.

"3am." Sirius said, following me.

"That late? Or... early? Whatever." I reached Jack and pulled her off the couch trying to pull her over my shoulder, but I nearly collasped under her weight.

"Here." Sirius said, reaching for her. I nestled her in his arms, as she murmured something.

"Thanks. I should get going."

"I'll come with you. I mean, how else are you going to get Jack to the dormitory?"

"Right. Let's go then." I snatched Jakarta's purse off the couch and fell in step beside Sirius as we left the Room of Requirement. "Hope we don't get caught." I said quietly.

"Don't worry, we won't. Reach into my back pocket, will you?"

"Err..."

"Really, Addison? I've been inside you, touching my butt is not a big deal." My face became red, and I snatched the piece of parchment out of his pocket and smacked him across the face with it. "Ow, what was that for?"

"Stop talking about it!" I said angrily. "And stop being so blunt." I thrust the paper at him, and with a bit of juggling of Jack he managed to hold it in his hand and tap it with his wand. Ink started to spill across the page, and it soon became a map of the school.

"Ah, so you have the map tonight?" I said taking it from him.

"How did you know - Right, Remus... I guess you know all our secrets." I nodded and searched the map for Filch's name.

"We're in the clear, he's on the other side of the castle." I said folding it and stuffing it back into his pocket.

"Cool." We walked in silence for a while, and I was surprised that it wasn't uncomfortable, but after a while, I decided to break it.

"So, how concerned should I be?"

"About what?" Sirius said looking at me confused.

"About how many fan girls are going to attack me tomorrow, because I was dancing with you?" He chuckled.

"Ahh, maybe a little bit concerned. They're pretty hardcore."

"Polyjuice Potion." I said to the Fat Lady, she scowled, said something about us waking her, and then swung open. "Well, if I'm in the hospital wing, you'll know why."

"Haa," he said smiling, and then we awkwardly stood at the top of the stairs. "Right, here you go." He said holding Jack out to me. I positioned her so she was standing, and I was supporting all of her weight.

"Umm, thanks for the dance. Well dances." I said looking down at my feet.

"No problem. I'll see you in the morning."

"Yeah." Then I turned and headed up the remaining stairs and as I pushed through the door to my dormitory, I looked back, and saw he was gone.

As I lay in bed, it all came crushing back to me, Remus, the breakup, how he hadn't even tried to talk to me since... and I felt sad. It took me a while to get to sleep that night, but eventually I drifted off.

***

I woke up with a slight headache, but nothing too bad. I heard Jack moaning on my one side, and Marlene on the other.

"Make the tapping stop!!!" Marlene cried. "It's so loud!" I listened carfully, and heard the small tapping sound that she was referring too. I pushed myself up and headed towards the window.

A scrawny owl was sitting there in the rain. I pushed it open and it hopped it spraying water on me as it shook out it's wings.

I took the not-so-small package from it's foot and it flew back out into the rain almost immediately. I walked back over to my bed and unwrapped. There were about fifteen vials of a dark green liquid, and I pulled out the note.

Hey Little Sis,
I rememberd that there was the big back to school bash yesterday, and I thought I would send you over some of my famous hangover-be-gone potions for you and your friends. Enjoy =) .

I loved my sister! This would rid the world of two grouchy people. I set one vial on Marlene's bedside table, and one on Jack's. Lily was already gone, and I knew Colleen to well to know she would never drink.

I took on sip of one, just to clear my head a little, and then headed into the bathroom. I jumped in the shower, and washed myself, before changing into a t-shirt and sweat pants. It was a saturday after all.

I left my hair wet and wavey and headed out of the dormitory and down the stairs.

"Do you and Sirius go out?" Three 5th year girls swooped in out of no where and surrounded me.

"Err..." I stammered unable to comprehend what they were even saying they had come at me so fast. Seriously? Had they been waiting for me?

"Don't youo go out with Remus Lupin?" A girl with way too much eyeliner piped up.

"I,uh. I don't think it's any of your business."

"It's definitely my business." The third girl said, she looked like the leader of these fan boppers.

"How do you figure?" I said recovering.

"Because we're going to be going out soon." I couldn't help but burst out laughing at how serious she said it.

"Sure -- you -- are." I said between gasps.

"Don't worry about her, Angie. She's obviously mental. Your Siri wouldn't go for a girl like that." One girl said turning to the leader. I started laughihng even harder, and I wasn't exactly sure why, it was just really funny. I held the banister for support. The girls walked away rolling their eyes at me.

"Are you okay?" James asked from behind me descending the stairs.

I finally caught my breath and calmed myself. "Woo, yeah." James gave me a weird look and walked on by me, and then I noticed Sirius following behind him.

"Angie talked to you didn't she?" He asked stopping, and smiling.

"Are you psychic?" I asked looking at him.

"Yes, and I was watching from the stairs." He said.

"Oh, that would explain it." I said nodding. "She's obsessed with you. I think she's waiting on a marriage proposal."

"Ha, yeah. You snog a girl once..."

"You snogged her?" I asked. I couldn't see it, and I wasn't sure why.

"Yeah, the end of last year. I was drunk... it didn't mean anything." He added quickly.

"No need to explain."

"Right." Silence.

"Addy?" My heart seized as I heard a familiar voice. I looked up at Sirius and he had an odd scowl on his face. "Can I talk to you?" Remus said from the stairwell.
