Chapter 17: Chapter 17
^Howíd you find this place?^ you asked as Sirius ushered you inside.
^That, my lovely wife, is a secret,^ he answered. At that moment, several house elves rushed up to you.
^Mister Black, sir! Violet is so happy to see you!^ The tallest house elf spoke. ^It has been a long time since Mister Black has come to visit us!^
^I know, Iím sorry. Iíve been busy.^
^What can Violet get for Mister Black and his girlfriend?^ Violet inquired.
^Oh, Iím not his girlfriend,^ you corrected quickly. ^Iím Kat.^
^Violet is so sorry, Miss Kat. Mister Black is always bringing his girlfriends to visit us.^ You raised your eyebrows and Sirius shrugged sheepishly.
^What can Violet get for Mister Black and Miss Kat?^
^Well, we missed lunch, so I think weíll takeÖ^ Sirius whispered the order into Violetís large ear. She nodded happily and went away to go make whatever Sirius had requested.
^So whatís for munch?^ you asked.
^Youíll see.^ The other house elves had been bustling about, getting a table ready for you. Now Sirius led you over to it, pulling out a chair for you.
^So whatís for lunch?^ you tried again.
^Youíll see,^ he repeated.
^Fine, you said grudgingly. At that moment, however, the house elves brought two plates to the table. You smiled as one was set in front of you.
^Steak and strawberries?^
^I didnít ask so I could forget.^ You smiled and ate a strawberry. Violet came over to you after a few minutes of quiet eating.
^Do Mister Black and Miss Kat like their food?^
^Itís very good, Violet, thank you,^ you complimented between bites.
^I like it too. Thanks,^ Sirius added.
^Violet is so glad!^ the ecstatic house elf hurried away.
^So youíre here a lot?^ you asked.
^Can you tell?^ You laughed.
^Yeah, I could tell. So this is how you guys get the food for parties.^
^You know our secret!^
^Donít worry, I wonít tell.^
^Good, because then Iíd have to kill you.^
^And killing your wife is generally frowned upon.^ You heard a tiny gasp behind you.
^Miss Kat is Mister Blackís wife!^ Violet yelled. ^Violet did not know this! Miss Kat is very lucky!^ You laughed as Sirius turned pink. ^May Violet get anything for Misses Black?^
^No, Iím fine, thanks Violet.^
^Ok Misses Black. If she needs anything she will call Violet?^
^Yes, she- I will. Thanks.^ Two house elves cleared your table as you got up to leave. They praised your kindness when you thanked them, and reiterated Violetís opinions of your luck. They seemed to have a very high opinion of Sirius.
^They sure like you,^ you said as you meandered back to the common room.
^Yeah. They liked you too though.^
^Iíll bet they treat every girl youíve brought down there that way.^
^No. not that Iíve brought that many to the kitchens anyway.^
^Oh. Well then they liked me.^
^Itís hard not to.^
^Thanks,^ you blushed, which was getting annoying. ^I can see why they like you, too.^
^Thanks,^ he replied. More silence. The only word spoken for the remainder of the walk was the password.
^Hey Sirius?^ you caught his attention as you moved to your respective dorms. ^Thanks for lunch.^
Mya and Lily were playing Wizardís Chess when you walked in.
^How much homework did you have?^
^Youíve been gone forever!^
^Oh, well Iíve actually been finished for about an hour,^ you admitted guiltily.
^You were with Sirius, werenít you?^
^Yeah, I was.^
^You like him!^ Lily accused. You tried to deny it.
^Do not! Guys, heís just my friend.^
^And husband,^ Mya pointed out.
^And crush,^ Lily stated firmly.
^Okay, so I like him! So what?^
^So what? Come on, Kat! What are you going to do about it?^ Mya asked.
^Nothing?^ You hoped to end the conversation.
^You have to tell him!^ Lily ordered.
^Why not? Heís sexy, funny, handsome, really sexy, and youíre already married!^ Mya ticked off his good qualities.
^Guys, he doesnít like me that way. So letís just drop it.^
^He does to like you!^ Lily shouted. ^You should see the way he looks at you! And he goes out of his way to spend every spare second with you!^
^How can you not see this?^
^You guys really think he likes me?^
^YES!^ they shouted together. You considered it. Maybe he did like you?
