In The Dark
Chloe Roberts stared absently out of the window of her bedroom in her flat, down at the streets of London below. Anger and worry clouded her mind, and she could think of nothing but the events that had occurred hours earlier. Sirius Black, her boyfriend, and possible fiance had disappeared into the night without an explanation or a word of where he what he was doing or where he was going. Annoyed, and worried, Chloe had contacted his three best friends, and none had written back, and she assumed they were with him.
It wasn’t that Chloe liked being in a bad way with Sirius but when he was being as impossible and as distant as he was it was hard to care. It bothered her that he wasn’t telling her the truth, and it made her mad that he wouldn’t let her help at all in the battle against Lord Voldemort. She understood why, but she didn’t like it.
The Order of the Phoenix
It was finally December twenty-fourth, and Christmas had arrived. Sirius had decorated the house top to bottom with decorations, red, green, and gold was sprinkled every where, the tree glowing with white decorations and a singing Angel. There was mistletoe hung every where, and he had decked the fireplace out with the three largest stockings he could find, all reading their names. The presents had all been wrapped in colour paper, and they all sat under the tree waiting to be opened the next morning.
Nothing Like the Holidays
A warm mug of tea in her hands, Chloe grinned as she watched Ryan pick up every single one of his presents and shake them. He was waiting for Chloe and Sirius to finish getting their coffee so he could open his Christmas presents. Behind her, Chloe could hear Sirius as he whistled ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ loudly as he stirred his tea. Chloe laughed as Ryan tried picking up a large present and nearly dropped it due to its size.
Chloe's birthday was a small get-together at the Leaky Cauldron, and Chloe enjoyed seeing all her friends again, but she couldn't wait for New Year's. James and Lily returned New Year's Eve, stopping and Chloe and Sirius's flat to tell them it had been a dead end, just as Moody had expected. Preperations had been made that everyone would meet later at Moody's home for the party. It would be the first Order party that everyone would be able to attend, and Chloe was excited and nervous. It would be like Christmas all over again except she didn't have to play hostess.
The Happy News
The maternity ward is located, not-so surprisingly, on the ground floor (known to be the place to go for Artifact Accidents). Away from any possible health threats of the other floors, and being conveniently closest to the entrance it was the best possible place to put it.
An Unfortunate Truth
“And Dumbledore has sent him back!” Chloe said shrilly. Her heart was beating fast, and fear bubbled in her chest. Remus was going back, and she knew he would be killed. There was no way that Voldemort didn’t know about his part with the Order.
Friends in Need
Lily looked up at her and gave her a thin smile. “You were right, I shouldn’t have bothered to see him. There is nothing more I can say to him, his mind isn’t changing any. He said he hated me before I left – but thinking about it now and he probably just said that because he was so upset. I don't think he meant it. He probably just hates James more now. Like I said, you were right, about everything. He’s still in love with me, even after all these years. I guess this is just how it’s going to be.”
“James!” Lily shrieked. Chloe spun around, and saw that James had collapsed on the floor, much of his robes drenched in blood.
Green flames burst into the fireplace, and everyone but Moody was startled. As he moved closer to the fireplace, the first figure appeared. Chloe recognised the man from the party, but the name was a mystery. He was older, probably in his late forties, his black hair peppered, and age lines on his face. He wore dark purple dress robes with a silver ‘W’ that made him look important and he carried a brown brief case.
It Is War
“Hello Mrs. Weasley, I’m Healer Roberts. I’ll be caring for your son tonight. Do you mind telling me what happened?” Chloe extended her hand to the woman.
