It had been beautiful, but then again, so had a lot of things.

3 Chapter 3- An Inexplicable Danger

He didn’t say much to other people, but I often caught him talking and laughing with the other three. He seemed sort of sad, I guessed, in a strange sort of way.

“He’s not Rostam, Jasper.” I said after a long while, very quietly.

5 Chapter 5- James's Proposition

“Tallulah darling, you forget what we are.”
Was he implying another message, or were his words purely all in good fun? I wasn’t so sure.

“But it’s my fault Jasper. My fault they’re dead.”

7 Chapter 7- Hide & Seek

The truth was I was too much of a coward to even face my own brother let alone teachers, students and especially Sirius Black.

2,098 4
8 Chapter 8- A Cauldronful of Passion

I hit him with a book and continued stirring. He laughed and turned back to his potion. Lily watched on, looking every part the satisfied matchmaker.

9 Chapter 9- First Lover


“You look beautiful.” He murmured, sliding an arm around my waist and kissing me gently. I kissed him back, not caring that I was 15 and he was 19. He loved me and my parents liked him. He was perfect.

10 Chapter 10- The Halloween Party

“You know,” He murmured almost into my hair. “I think you’re the only girl I really wanted to kiss tonight, but no matter where I looked I couldn’t find you.”

11 Chapter 11- A Change of Disposition

And the thing was I didn’t mind so much about the danger anymore. School for me was always going to be dangerous, there was always going to be that risk.

12 Chapter 12- Declarations

“I suppose you’re wondering.” He said, it wasn’t a question, but he was right. Of course I was wondering, I was wondering about a lot of things.

13 Chapter 13- Gossip of Sorts

“So Master Black has found himself a lady, and about time too!”
“Rosmerta m’dear,” James said. “That’s exactly what I’ve been saying.”

14 Chapter 14- Truths

The expression in his eyes was unfathomable; I wondered what was brewing beneath the calm.

2,902 12
15 Chapter 15- The Ghost of a Smile

I hadn’t killed him. That at least I should be grateful for. Well, that was what I told myself anyway.

16 Chapter 16- A Festive Time of Year I

“Prongs! Wormtail!” He yelled, lurching spectacularly. “I’m injured.”
He let out a faint ‘Oh!’ and collapsed to the ground.

It was our second Christmas without Rosalind and Evander Wiley, but the pain hadn’t lessened.

Behind me I felt Sirius shiver. He wrapped his arms tighter around me, burying his face in my hair.

3,787 10
19 Chapter 19- Rush Hour

Two things happened that month that put an end to the string of perfections that had flown our way. The first came in the form of a letter.

20 Chapter 20- The Scene of the Crime

Slowly, not stepping fully into the dim light Rostam Ayers walked out from behind the bookshelf. An involuntary shiver coursed through my body. It was over.

21 Chapter 21- Waking Up

“That’s me?” I asked, horrified by the thought. The boy next to me nodded. “And that’s you?” He nodded again. I swallowed, looking at the weak, pale reincarnation of myself down below.

2,765 3
22 Chapter 22- The Close

I watched their eagerness to welcome me back and their readiness to forgive and overlook the things I’d done and knew, I knew that I’d never have made it through this year without them.
