There's always a first
"Potter," Lily greeted him, "You got Alexis a detention." Oh Merlin, she was going to draw the attention to me. I wished the floor would just swallow me whole there and then.
Spilt pumpkin juice
"Yo, Pads! Move your derriere," James appeared with Peter and shoved Sirius to make room for himself. Sirius dramatically swept his arms as he was pushed closer to me and in the process dumped pumpkin juice all over me.
"Very good, Miss Rose. 30 points to Gryffindor,' she whispered uncharacteristically and moved to help a Slytherin. I blinked a few times, wondering if I just imagined what I had seen.
"THAT IS BESIDE THE POINT. SHE LOVES ME BUT SHE JUST HASN'T REALISED IT YET!"
Too young to die
I looked up to the teachers table, but Professor Merrythought was the only teacher there and she was eating like there was no tomorrow, so I wasn't going to get any help there.
It has been 9 years since your mother has gone. 9 years of watching you grow up. I wish she'd been here with us every step of the way. Every day I regret being with her because it is my fault she was disowned by her family.
"You stay away from her." A second voice said,
"What are you guys talking about? He's...James Potter. He makes my life hell," she protested.
"Shock horror!" leaked from his mouth. I glared at him and he gave me a loopy grin, "I'm not the one in luuuurve with Alexis!
"Alexis?" Remus shouted over the din, "Are you all right?"
Butterbeer is for girls
People were dancing and drinking and eating and there were some couples in their own private little corners. A bit early in the night for that kind of stuff, I think.
Butt-chin and Elf-ears
"Sirius..." I said. Maybe he would talk to me, although I wasn't sure why he was angry at Remus.<
Ready for anything...
"Lumos," I whispered and braced myself for whatever horrors Lily had gotten herself into.
...except Sirius Black
"Don't worry. What's the worst that could go wrong?" I assured her. We were sitting in a corridor a few hallways away from Sirius and Alexis.
Let me out
Today was the big day: I'd decided I was going to ask Rosie to Hogsmeade.
Believe it or not
I was walking back to Gryffindor tower when I was attacked by Butt-chin and Elf-ears.
A friend in need
James looked terrible. There was a long rip down the back of his robes while his tie was slung around his neck. His hair didn't stick up in every direction like it normally did.
Taken for granted
“Nice to meet you, Mrs Rose,” Lily said.
Just Alexis Rose
"Where is what going?" he said while running his hand though his hair.
Diamonds in the sky
I kept sipping my firewhisky while I looked out the window. The night sky was like a black cloak and the stars were like diamonds.
Someone else's secret
The stag mustn’t have realised that I was there because it started to trot in my direction. I wanted to scream: to yell and rage and ask the stupid stag what it was doing but I had no time for emotions as the werewolf suddenly sniffed the air and looked right at me.
What she was saying was ridiculous. I mean, I'd just started first grade and she wanted to talk about me getting married?
"I...I don't know," I said. How did I feel about Remus being a werewolf? I hadn't anytime to think about it last night and it was just starting to sink in.
"You knew?" Dad spluttered, "You knew that Esmeralda was going to kill Calla?"
Mending broken ties
Slowly my mind turned to what Dumbledore had told me the day after the full moon.
Something to tell you
“Alexis has been hiding something,” she said in an accusing voice. I looked out the window and didn’t say anything.
Secrets and lies
I avoided looking even in her direction. I mean, what was I supposed to say?
Facing the music
My mind rejected this explanation. It was just so wrong.
Different this time
"It's no problem. You probably should be going to sleep," James said.
"So that's it?" Al said and stared at me, "That's all we're going to do?"
Love of my life
James' eyes bulged. His face flushed and his breathing speed up. He choked on the piece of toast in his mouth. Remus thumped him on his back but that probably just made it worse, judging by the way James was swatting at his hands. I looked over to Lily to find that she had left her seat and was running out of the Great Hall.
A Marauder secret
"No no no! Definitely not Al!" Lily said and looked up at me, "We can't tell her!"
We need to talk
"Are you done?" I said quietly.
Enjoy it now
If Lily like James, then that was ok. If she started going out with him then it was not good at all.
The definition of 'ok'
I still loved Lily with the bottom of my heart but things had changed.
Save your questions
"A serious incident had occurred," he started off, "Although I do not know the full story, it appears that Miss Evans took it upon herself to confront and number of Slytherin. Unfortunately they were too strong for her but luckily Miss Rose and Mr Black came to her aid but it was still the three of them against about 6 Sly-"
