“Melody!” I called as I ran through the halls, looking for her. That was when I heard quiet sobs coming from an empty classroom. I walked into the room.

“Mellie,” I murmured as I quickly maneuvered through the desks to where she sat. She grabbed the front of my shirt and dragged me down.

“Oh, Sirius!” She wailed into my right shoulder while I comforted her.

“Shhh ... It’s ok,” I said. “We’ll be fine. It’s going to be ok.”

“Sirius,” she said, agonized. Her grip was loosening up. “They read the letter. They knew that we were getting married. Then he walked in. He read the letter. And then he killed them.”

“Sweetheart, it’s ok. They knew that you were happy. That’s all parents want from their children. They want them to be happy.” She just cried harder. I held her, comforting her.

“Melody,” I said a while later. “We need to leave.” She nodded. I helped her up and brushed my lips over hers. She hungrily deepened the kiss. I could tell that neither one of us was going to let go, so I, reluctantly, ended the kiss.

“I love you,” she said, her voice hoarse from crying.

“I love you, too,” I said, kissing her forehead. She sighed.

“I can’t believe they’re sending MicKenna and MicKayla to us,” Melody whispered. We started walking through the halls.

“Mellie!” We turned to see James and Lily running down the corridor at top speed.

“Where were you?” James questioned, coming to a halt right in front of us. “We’ve been looking for you ... are you ok, Melody?”

“I’m fine,” she said, her voice thick. Lily hugged her.

“I’m so sorry,” Lily said.

“It’s ok,” Melody said. “It was bound to happen, anyways.” Lily let go.

“What happened?” James asked. Apparently, he did not read the letter. Lily pulled out the black letter with the violet Ministry of Magic insignia on it out of the back pocket of her jeans. Once she had handed it to James, he began to read it.

“The fucking bastard’s at it again!” An enraged James exclaimed when he had finished.

“Who?”

“Voldemort,” Lily whispered. Melody flinched at the name. She looked at us, eyes filled with tears.

“I got a letter just like that last year, saying that my aunt and uncle were murdered. I got another one a week ago – my grandma died. And then...” She turned into James’ shirt and cried.

“It was our first date,” he said. “We had gone to a park near their house, and we were walking through the front door when he attacked us. Personally, too.” We looked at him, confused. He sighed. “As in Voldemort actually came and started shouting spells at us. Lily’s parents tried to protect us, but they can’t do magic, so...”

“Oh my God! Lily!” Melody whispered, her hand covering her mouth.

“When I saw them on the floor, I thought I’d lost almost everything,” she said. “The only thing I didn’t lose was you.” She looked at James. He hugged her closer.

“I feel like I’m the reason that Voldy’s going after you,” he said solemnly. Lily reached up and touched his cheek.

“It’s not your fault,” she said. “It was just bad timing.”

“Thanks, love.”

“Well,” snarled a cruel, feminine voice. “Look what the cat dragged in!” We turned to see Bellatrix Black standing in front of two people – Rodolfus Lestrange and Severus Snape. James pushed Lily behind him while I stepped in front of Melody.

“Bella,” I growled. She smiled.

“Now, now, cousin,” she crooned. “That’s no way to speak to a lady.”

“You are neither a woman, nor my cousin!” Rodolfus hissed at my comment, but Bella held up a hand. Snape was ogling Lily.

“Why are you here?!” James said, venom dripping from his mouth. “You left Hogwarts five years ago!”

“Am I not entitled to visit my old school?” Bella’s tone was light, teasing.

“Not a fucking bitch, such as yourself,” Lily quipped. That made Bella snap; everyone’s wands twirled up in a matter of seconds.

“You filthy, PMSing Mudblood!” Bella shrieked. “You die! Avada Kedavra!” The spell hit Lily right in the chest.

“NO!” James, Snape, and Melody shouted all at once.

“I thought I’d blocked the spell!” James cried as the three of them ran over to where Lily lay. James had – silently – used a shielding charm.

“Wha – How – She has a pulse!” James exclaimed. Bella looked livid.

“Avada...” She pointed her wand at me.

“Expelliarmus!” Bella’s wand flew out of her hand and into Dumbledore’s.

“Bellatrix Black! You are hereby banned from ever coming onto Hogwarts campus! Same with you, Rodolfus. And Mr. Snape, you are expelled from this school!” Snape, horrified, ran down the hall and out of sight, crying. Dumbledore flicked his wand and sent a snarling Bellatrix and gaping Rodolfus away. He knelt down next to a crying James.

“James,” Dumbledore said. “Your spell saved her, but part of it got through. She needs to go the hospital wing IMMEDIATELY. I cannot go with you, so I wish her a quick recovery.” He conjured a stretcher and left. We rushed up to the hospital wing. The new nurse – Madam Pomfrey – came to the door.

“What –“

“Death Eaters attacked us,’ I explained. “But Dumbledore took care of them.” She nodded and lead a very depressed looking James and Lily to a secluded sector of the infirmary.

“Mellie,” I murmured. She looked up at me. “Let’s go to our room.” She nodded, her cheeks tear stained. I wrapped my arm around her shoulders, kissed her forehead, and walked back to our room, where we spent the rest of the day crying and making out.
