Chapter 7: Anyone But You
I don't change my mind for anybody
I won't waste my time on just anybody
I won't share my life
With anyone but you...
- Alexz Johnson
Most girls would feel flattered with so many blokes flying around them like annoying flies circling a pile of shit.
But that was exactly how I saw them; annoying flies.
I'm the pile of shit.
First there were the two Marauders; James and Sirius continued assaulting me every chance they got, but somehow learned to 'fade away' whenever they saw my temper rise, and make a run for it. The weirdest places they managed to sneak into was without a doubt the girls' lavatory on sixth floor.
I must say that the Hufflepuff girl looked scared shitless when the two Marauders bounded in, their eyes wide with excitement.
Second person on my list (after James and Sirius' shared first place) was my own cousin. Chuck kept bugging me about whatever he seemed important enough - this morning it had been Hannah Smith's red knickers, which had made Lily almost choke on her breakfast - and never seemed bothered by the curious set of eyes that constantly watched us.
I found it awfully disturbing.
Third place goes to Peter Pettigrew. Honestly, I knew it had been such a bad mistake to sit next to him, and talk to him! I just knew it! I had a weird feeling he had now become my stalker, even if he didn't quite stalk me like his two idiot friends. His way of following me was more subtle, and his shyness made me very uncomfortable. I mean, who honestly comes out of nowhere to a girl and talks about the weather, hoping for the poor girl to change the subject?
I looked like an idiot as I started talking about global warming, overly excited about the possible debate.
Honestly, it'll hit us in the near future, I'm sure of it.
Global warming, I mean.
And as if that wasn't enough for a small person like moi to deal with, I could always relay on Lucius Malfoy, that son of a bitch. He seemed to be around everywhere I went - everywhere. Luckily, he didn't stay for a chat, or he would have one less bodypart to worry about. It was more the way he looked at me that bothered me. It made me feel like I was missing something obvious, and he was aware of it.
My thoughts weren't exactly the most peaceful ones as Sirius came running around the corner, his tie hanging loosely around his neck, and his shirt untucked. My eyes grew wide, as he grabbed my elbow, towing me down the corridor and towards an empty classroom.
"Black, what the hell--" I started protesting loudly, as everyone turned to give us a skeptical look; it was no secret that I hated the Marauders... more or less.
"Shut up, Frenchy, and do something useful!" he said, and pushed me into the classroom, following right behind me.
I folded my arms, and glared at him, as he slumped against the door, trying to catch his breath. "Explain," I demanded, narrowing my eyes.
"You're a friendly person, right?" he started, giving me a dubious look.
"I guess I have my moments, yes," I said stiffly.
"Okay, scratch that," Sirius said after a moment of silence, and shook his head. "I need you to do something for me."
I couldn't help but let out a snort, a clear sound of my disbelief. "W-why would I do something for you?"
"Because you have the hots for me, of course," he said and rolled his eyes. "No, because you have no choice."
"Really?" I said, and arched my brow.
"If you do this teeny, tiny thing for me, I will leave you alone - and that's what you want, right?"
"You'll find a way to bugger me, anyway!" I cried out, and leaned against the desk, but my curiousity sparked up against my better judgement. "What thing?" I couldn't help but ask.
Sirius smirked. "I need you to tell Vicky I don't want to shag her."
I could've choked on my own breath.
I couldn't believe he would actually ask me to tell his girlfriend something like that! It was disgusting, wrong, pathetic, and cowardy!
And a small part of me felt revolted by the fact that Sirius Black's lips had once been kissing my lips, and now they had probably been somewhere around Vicky's. The mere thought made me want to hurl right then and there.
But at the same time, I felt smug; he hadn't had sex with his own girlfriend yet? Ha!
"No," I said shortly, and shook my head wildly. "No, no, no, no--"
"Please!" Sirius pleaded, looking desperate.
"You cannot be serious!"
"I am!" he said, and managed to squeeze out a grin. "Look, I'm not good at these things, and I'm sick of trying to avoid her - she thinks we have a 'serious relationship', or something, and then there's the baby-talk, and--"
I spluttered for a moment, and Sirius watched me impatiently until I had pulled myself together again.
"T-the what talk?" I coughed, my eyes wide with amusement now.
"She wants two children, a boy and a girl," Sirius informed me with a disgruntled look on his face. "I tell you, that woman is not coming anywhere near my--!"
I wanted to dig my own grave by now.
"Please!" I said, and closed my eyes tightly. "Never, ever talk about your--" I cringed at the thought, unable to finish my sentence. "Just... shut up!"
"As if you haven't seen it," I heard him point out, and I groaned loudly.
"I'm trying my best to forget," I said darkly, and watched his amused expression falter. "Be a man and handle your own problems - I have better things to do!"
"Please!" Sirius tried again, as I tried to push past him. "Susie, come on!"
He grabbed my hand, and squeezed it tightly. I looked into his eyes, trying to find something - what, I had no idea of.
"Puh-lease?" he whispered, and the corners of my mouth twitched at his expression; it was just beyond ridiculous.
But even that couldn't break me.
"Do like all the other blokes do - for God's sake, Black!" I snapped, and pulled my hand away. "Get another girl, flirt a bit, and make her hate you enough to dump you!"
"How?" he asked, his face blank.
Oh, for the love of God!
"Are you really that dense?" I asked incredulously.
"Why don't you enlighten me, Susie Q!" Sirius said scatchingly, and raised his eyebrows at me.
"If I find you a perfect girl, will you leave me the fuck alone?"
He seemed to consider my deal for a moment, before he stretched out his hand, his grin widening across his face.
"You've got yourself a deal, mate," he said cheerfully. "So, when do you want to shag?"
"Oh, God," I muttered, mentally throwing out all my last threads of hope. You just couldn't make any sense into that bloke's head, could you?
"You're an angel, Susie, I owe--"
"Yeah, yeah," I shouted over my shoulder, as I left the room. "Whatever."
I knew I had made a bad deal with the devil himself when I walked into the Great Hall. My eyes automatically searched up Lily, and on the other side of the table sat none other but Victoria Lake with her loyal follower, Valerie.
I cursed under my breath, as I dropped my bag on the floor, slumping down next to Lily with a furious look on my face. Why did she sit with these airheads? What had I ever to her to deserve this kind of fate!?
Lily threw me an apologetic look, as if she knew what I was thinking. "Vicky was telling me how wonderful Sirius is," she said stiffly, and I could sense the annoyance in her friendly voice.
Lily was too kind to hate anyone, but she tolerated Vicky better than anyone I had ever met. In a way, she was my idol.
"Great," I muttered, and piled food on my plate. I tried to shake the deal I had made with Sirius Black from my head, trying to focus on the food instead.
I loved meatballs, and Sirius Black was ruining this blissful moment for me.
"He's been down lately," Vicky went on, and I smirked slightly as I heard Lily's fork scrape against the plate in sudden annoyance. "It's like he's avoiding me! Like the other day, he just turned around when he saw me come down the corridor - and he took a longer route to get to his class!"
"How odd," Lily mused, and threw me a quick glance.
"Absurd," I agreed, covering my snort with a cough.
"Maybe he has a cold, or another kind of... illness..." Valerie suggested, her soft voice fading as Vicky threw her a pityful look.
"Val, dear, don't try to understand things you clearly don't have a clue about," she said with a sickly sweet voice.
I think I just vomited in my mouth.
"Don't--" I started loudly, my temper rising as I saw how much Vicky's words hurt the shy and quiet Valerie.
"Hello, ladies!" someone cut me off.
Oh. Hell. No.
"Hi," we all chorused - Vicky more eager than the rest of us.
"What's going, girls?" Sirius drawled, and leaned casually his elbow on my head.
"Oh, same ol', same ol'," Lily muttered, looking around with a worried expression - apparently, she was expecting for an assault from Potter anytime.
"You've been ignoring me, Siri," Vicky crooned, and I tried to swat Sirius away from my precious head. Why didn't he just wave a gigantic sign above my head that we had a secret deal!?
"Have I?" he asked innocently, his eyes huge.
I knew this because his reflection seemed to be reflecting from my cup.
"Sod off, Black," I hissed, and shoved my back against his stomach, making him grunt ungracefully.
"Why so violent, Quency?" he asked, as he rubbed his abs.
"I want to eat without getting the urge to vomit in my mouth, thank you very much," I said icily.
A small smile escaped on Sirius' lips, before he became serious again - no pun intended - and clutched his heart dramatically. "Man down!" he exclaimed, and closed his eyes heavily.
"Oh, go fuck yourself..." I said under my breath, and turned my back to him, as he collapsed on the floor.
By now everyone was staring.
"Sirius!" Vicky squealed, and stood up abruptly. "Do you need mouth-to-mouth!?"
This made him return on his feet fast enough.
"I'M FINE!" he announced loudly, backing away from the table, almost colliding with a poor Hufflepuff. "Got to go!"
"But Siri!" Vicky called after him, her lip slowly curling into a pout.
Valerie pulled Vicky carefully back in her seat, throwing a worried glance towards the doors Sirius had just rushed through.
"That was..." Lily said slowly, glancing at Vicky as if she was a ticking time bomb. "...refreshing."
You took the words straight from my mouth, Lilykins!
Yeah, Sirius can go fuck himself.
All day, he's been doing nothing else than harassing me to the urge of suicide. He needs to get a life, a woman, or something remotely distracting.
So as I walked down the empty corridor, wondering where the hell these people had a Divination classroom, I happened to bump into James and Peter.
"Oof!" I let out, as I walked into Peter. "Sorry, Petey!"
"Susie!" Peter called out, and dared a glanced at the grinning James next to him. "Hi!"
"What?" I said slowly, narrowing my eyes suspiciously.
"Nothing," they chorused, and James' grin grew wider.
I placed my hands on my hips, and glared at them. "You two better not be up to anything, or else...!"
James' grin was gone before I reached the 'or else...' part. Impressive.
"Oh, we're not up to anything!" James assured me cheerfully - too cheerfully. "We're just discussing Hogsmeade with Wormy, here..."
"Hogsmeade?" I said with a flat voice. James flung his arm around my shoulders, and steered me around to the other direction. "What's Hogsmeade?" I repeated.
"Yes, Hogsmeade," James said. "See, we're having some... err... unwelcome problems with the dates," he said, and patted my shoulder.
Now I got really worried.
"Why am I not liking the sound of this?" I grumbled.
"Don't worry," Peter suddenly said, and I looked around at him. "It's not that bad, really..."
"Great," I said.
"We're being mercyful," James said loudly. "See, we only need you to convince Lilyflower to join me to Hogsmeade--"
"Yeah, ha, dream on, Potter," I snorted.
"I'm being completely serious," James exclaimed. "Look, if you do that, we promise to leave you alone."
Hmm. Two options to choose from. The first one was by Sirius Black; all I have to do is to find him a perfect girl who's stupid enough to snog him and satisfy all his unspoken desires that Vicky clearly can't cover. The second one was by James Potter; he, on the other hand, is asking for the impossible - to get Lily Evans on a date with him.
How am I suddenly very eager to find Sirius a girl instead of convincing Lily to go out with this toerag?
Although, I do believe James' intentions are pure, unlike Sirius'. He just wants to get rid of Vicky (I don't blame him), and he's just not man enough to just break it off the old fashioned way.
Hmm. Tricky, tricky...
But then again, I'm very lazy, and I'm not looking forward to being all chummy-chummy with Evans.
Why is Sirius' offer looking more and more appealing?
"I'm sorry," I said as calmly as I could. To hell with good and bad intentions - when did I ever care!? "I have other plans."
"You have!?" the two boys called out, and froze, as I continued to walk on.
"Yep!" I said, and looked around at them. "Plans that don't include you."
Sirius better have my back, too.
