“Who are we sharing Transfiguration with?” Jo asked.
“Oh, come on!” she groaned.
“What’s the issue?”
“McGonagall is going to make me pair up with Black again” she dropped her head on the table with a loud ‘thump’. “I hate my life” Alice and I exchanged a quick look.
“You know, if I’d ever seen you fly before I would have never forgotten your name”
“If that’s your attempt at an apology, let me tell you it sucks” I was extremely glad my voice sounded a lot calmer than I felt.
“I have nothing to apologise for” Black said haughtily.
“Right” I turned around, ready to leave. He sidestepped me and stood in front of me, blocking my path.
“I just wondered…” he started. I took a small step backwards. For some reason, it felt extremely important that I put some distance between us. He didn’t agree, and again closed the space between us.
“Yes?” my voice was a whisper.
A part of my brain started shouting at me, demanding to know what the hell I was doing. I was frozen. Merlin’s pants, somebody please interrupt whatever this is, throw something at me, anything!
“Sirius, Silverway, come here” Potter ordered. I looked at him funny.
“Aye, aye captain!” I muttered, making my way over to where the rest of the team was gathered. I heard Black chuckle lightly behind me.
“Right, I don’t have to tell you that today’s game is the most important game of the entire year. We must crush those Slytherin snakes” he looked a lot more menacing than I ever thought possible. It was kind of sexy.
"You are a rockstar, babe” he said. I leaned in for a last kiss. It was bittersweet.
“I’ll miss you” I said.
“I’ll miss you too”
The Crystal Ball
And then, James Potter was kissing me.
Out of his league
“I’ll pay good money for someone to levitate me all the way back to Gryffindor Tower” I announced.
“DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT, BLACK” I shouted, sitting upright and terrified that he’d go through with it. He started laughing hysterically.
“He didn’t even have his wand out” said Cal. I sighed.
“Aah, well, some people find scars sexy and manly”
“Are you one of those people?” he wiggled his eyebrows. I laughed again.
“Maybe, maybe not”
The Mandrake Leaf
"I'm the only lucky girl in the school who is often in a Sirius and James' sandwich. I don't have to wonder. I know." I said casually. "I don't really see what all the fuss is about."
Amato Animo Animato Animagus
"You called me Sirius," he whispered lifting his eyes to mine and smiling weakly. My breath caught. There were about a million things he should be thinking right now, and I was pretty sure this wasn't one of them. Once again, I was trapped in his eyes, unable to look away, unable to say another word.
Jocelyn was batshit crazy. There was no other explanation. She was also the reason we’d won the game by a huge margin. I saw Cal grab the snitch and looked at her ready to celebrate, but her eyes rolled backwards and, unconscious, she fell off her broom.
Acts of Love
“Remus and I had a chat…” she said, smiling and looking at up at him. I stared at Remus.
“I apologized for being an idiot” he said, blushing.
“Well, well, well… nothing like two close friends being involved in a life-threatening accident to reignite the spark of romance” I joked. Everyone laughed.
The Marauders' Map
“This is some of the most impressive magic I’ve ever seen in my life” I whispered, still unable to take my eyes off the map.
“This is exactly why I wanted to show it to you” Sirius said. I smiled at him. He winked and my heart did a strange little ‘oohh’. I ignored it.
"You are a bad liad, Sirius Black," she said.
"Let's hope James and Jocelyn never find out."
“Your room. Right now. Move” Sirius and I looked at each other in great confusion. I had heard Jo could be quite scary if you pissed her off, but she was also quite difficult to piss off (unless you were Padfoot) so I had never actually been on the receiving end of her rage until now.
“Whatever it was, it wasn’t us” said Padfoot, smiling at her. She didn’t budge. If anything, she looked angrier. The smile died in his lips immediately. I thought it was the only time I’d seen Sirius fail at making Jocelyn smile back.
“Hello! Want to join us in the pool?” I asked. She shook her head, smiling.
“You guys go on, I’ve already been in twice”
“That is the worst excuse I ever heard in my life” Moony jumped out of the pool and ran over to us. Before I had time to react, he scooped Jocelyn up in his arms and ran back to the water, jumping in with a protesting Jo.
The first wizarding war
“Don’t. Please, don’t let go” I whispered, holding on to his shirt with all the strength I had and looking into his silver eyes. My voice was so frail, so weak, it was a wonder he heard me, but he did. He nodded and adjusted his position again so I was more comfortable. There was a buzzing sound, like a fly was trapped inside my head. It was driving me crazy. I realized that it was my mother hovering over us, flapping her arms in an unattractive manner and saying some things I couldn’t really hear.
“I don’t think this is healthy”
“It’s a good thing I am not asking you, then” I said, twisting out of his hold and strutting after the boys.
Easy is the descent
"Are you okay?"
"No, but I think I will be,"I said. They sat around me in silence and we stayed like this for a little while.
Skin on skin
“You need to get better at sharing” he replied with a smirk.
“You are too drunk anyway! Don’t need any more” I said, poking him in the chest with a finger.
“And you aren’t?” he whispered, catching my hand with his.
Killing me slowly
“Explain that, how are you ‘kind of’ with someone?”
“Well, he isn’t my boyfriend but as you may have noticed, we are seeing each other” I joked. Sirius didn’t find it funny in the slightest.
Welcome to the Order
“I thought you wanted to join us. You spent months tracking us, and we know you’ve been practicing defense,” it was McGonagall that spoke.
“I do. I was just worried you’d turn me away. You know, because I’m seventeen,” I shrugged. “But I want to join you. I have been practicing, I am strong, I am agile, and I am an illegal animagus.”
“And the Order could really use your help”
For the greater good
“Sirius, I think you should ask Jo for a dance” I whispered to him as we swayed.
“I’m working on it. I think I need another drink” he replied. I looked at him in surprise. He was building up the courage… I realized this was more than just a dance he was going to ask for. Tonight was the night!
“Oh my God, you’re going for it, aren’t you?” he nodded, looking rather panicked. “Good luck” I whispered.
The yelling match that ensued was one for the history books. She made me so angry, so irrationally furious that I couldn’t help myself.
Somewhere between the shouting and fighting I’d found my way to her.
I stumbled into the common room and cursed as I hit the corner of a table with my hip.
“Jocelyn?” I froze. Too late, I remembered I wasn’t supposed to be here. I wasn’t staying in my room; I shouldn’t have come.
“Sirius” I said, trying to hide the fact that I was wasted. “I was leaving”
“You were very brave but also incredibly stupid, Jocelyn,” leave it to McGonagall to call me stupid in front of all my friends and the leader of our secret elite warrior unit.
“Thanks, Minerva. I shall like that to be engraved on my tombstone.”
“Okay, okay” she chuckled. “Let’s just say if it’d been a N.E.W.T. she’d given you an O.”
I felt very smug at that, and grinned wickedly.
I got you
The last Quidditch game
Let it burn
“I can’t believe we’re graduating in a week,” said Peter the afternoon before exams started.
“I’m going to miss this place,” Remus said.
“There’s nowhere quite like it,” I agreed. From my very comfortable seat between Sirius’ legs, I felt him sigh.
“You look somber,” he whispered in my ear. Three years later and he still gave me butterflies when he hugged me from behind.
“I am worried,” I admitted.
“About Prongs and Red?”
“I think we should add more protection to their place. A fidelius charm,” I said.
