The First Day
“Good morning, Sirius,” Alina said as Sirius walked alone to the first class of the morning: Transfiguration. He quickly turned around and looked at her. Her hazel eyes glistened with excitement for the day.
She turned around quickly when she realized that Sirius was standing right behind her. She backed up against the shelf, placing her hands on a row of books. He put his hands on either side of her on the books and leaned forward.
“How did it go with Lindy this evening? I didn’t see you two together,” Alina said after a while, looking up at Sirius. He took his hands out of his pockets and slid down into a sitting position. When he sat down, he realized that he was mere centimeters away from Alina. He started sweating a bit and the butterflies in his stomach fluttered quicker.
“You need a little doggy nickname,” she cooed as she scratched under his chin. He barked loudly. She laughed, nearly falling over. He nudged her stomach with his snout to tickle her.
He kissed the back of her neck tenderly, breathing in her scent. She smelled sweet, but not an over powering sugary sweet. She cocked her head to the side a bit as he let his kisses trail down the part of her back that was bare.
“We got Potions canceled,” James said excitedly once they were out of earshot of their professor. Each of the Marauders smiled in pride at what they had done before heading their own ways.
“She hates me,” Sirius muttered bitterly to himself. He got up and went to the portrait hole and walked through the stone corridors aimlessly. He felt cold and lonely. He passed people who waved at him, but he didn’t wave back despite his loneliness.
He scanned each house’s stands. He started with the Gryffindor stand. All of the Gryffindors were shouting and jumping madly. He looked in the stands for Remus and Peter. He found them. Each was waving a ‘Potter and Black’ flag. Sirius smiled at this and at the impatient-looking Lily behind them.
A Special Place
“You will know what I’m talking about,” he said, pointing his long and bony finger toward the Whomping Willow. Dumbledore turned back and Sirius watched as his figure walked into the castle.
“Yes. It is much simpler,” Sirius said. Alina smiled and crawled across the corridor to sit next to Sirius. He wrapped his arm around her shoulders as she rested her hand upon his chest. She snuggled her head into Sirius’s shoulder.
We Are Leaving Some Things Unsaid
Sirius felt a pang of guilt ring through his chest. He hugged Alina closer to him. He honestly hadn’t a clue what to do when someone was upset, especially someone he cared about. He had never seen Alina cry before, making his confusion about what to do run higher.
Sirius tapped on a wall and pushed opened the door. The look on Alina’s face told him that she was not surprised that they were going into another secret passageway. A smile came across her face as Sirius took her hand and led her in.
On My Own
Two long months had passed since Sirius had last seen Alina. Two miserable long months to be exact. He hadn’t realized how much he enjoyed spending time with her until he simply couldn’t. Finally, he believed in the saying “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” It made perfect sense in Sirius’s situation.
Where We Left Off
Sirius moved a bit closer to Alina on the couch. They were so close to one another that Sirius could feel Alina’s breath on his neck. It was tantalizing to know she was so close, yet so far away at the same time. His eyes locked with hers and they sat silently. Sirius could feel his hand moving to Alina’s cheek. Her skin felt as soft as it had three months ago. He wanted to know if her lips felt the same as they had.
“Let me help you!” he said as he tried to pick up her trunk. She turned around and looked at him fiercely. He had never seen her so angry, not even when he had cheated on her.
“Oh, this most certainly is not my sweater! My waist wouldn’t fit in that! Anyway, I wasn’t even looking for a sweater!” She added this to the pile and picked up yet another shirt that wasn’t his.
It may have been days before Sirius woke up, and, frankly, he didn’t care. Exhaustion had gotten what little responsibility that he had and chucked it out the window. He groped around for the alarm clock, only to find that he was grabbing at Alina’s feet.
“It was beautiful, Sirius.” Her quiet voice was barely audible between the wind and the motorcycle’s engine. He had just begun to fly down to the front of Big Ben when she had said this. There were no Muggles nearby, so now was as good a time as any to land. Alina blindly handed him her helmet as she looked up at the enormous clock.
Lonely, So Lonely Part One
She didn’t immediately read the paper; she watched the children playing at the park that was visible from the bedroom window instead. They looked so incredibly happy and she secretly wished that none of the little girls had to suffer the anguish she was when they grew to be young women. She watched in a bittersweet manner as a few little boys joined the young girls in their games.
Lonely, So Lonely Part 2
“I know,” were the only words that he could find to answer her with. She kissed him, stopping him from saying any more. It was as though she didn’t want to hear what he had to say yet, and he didn’t mind. Her warm, sweet kiss was all that he needed to keep his mouth shut.
