Chapter 1: I Just Wanna Reach Out & Touch It!
I Just Wanna Reach Out & Touch It - OneShot
“Melanie Rebecca Clearland. Wake up.” Urgh! I hate my whole name! It's totally hate worthy and urgh, yuck!
“It's MARSHMALLOW!” Yes, that was my preferred name.
I felt a pillow hit the side of my head.
“Alright, alright, I'm up!” I groaned, kicking whoever was on my sheet. He or she fell off with a thud. I rubbed my bleary eyes and glanced at the floor. “WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING IN HERE, SIRIUS?!”
He groaned before flashing me a grin, jerking his head towards the clock.
I gasped, horrified. “And it's just one o' clock in the MORNING!”
His smile didn't falter. Instead, it became much more pronounced.
“Out, out, OUT!” I yelled at him.
The beauty of being in a dorm with no one apart from myself was that I didn't have to worry about how loud I wanted to be in the early hours of the morning. I could've been playing the bongos, the saxophone or clanging a bunch of pans together for all anyone cared. That thought triggered my small laugh. I imagined waking Sirius up in the middle of the night, blasting my pan music right besides his ear. Muhuahahaha. Evil, I know.
“Melanie,” I heard him call from outside my door.
“Shut up or you'll wake my neighbours!” I yelled back, a glee smile on my face. Oho, imagine that. The girls next door find out that Sirius visits me at night. Oho, how much envy and piercing daggers that would create. Oho, I can imagine.
Ooh, I remember the day they found out we were together.
“You? And Sirius Black?” Nancy's look was a mixture of incredibility and a sneer, “Ha, don't make me laugh.” Her friends guffawed in agreement.
“Here's my little, sweet Marshmallow,” of course that was all just for a dramatic act on Sirius' part. He came up behind me and kissed me on the neck, right there and then, in front of not only the girls of Gryffindor, but the staff, Dumbledore, the marauders, more girls, everyone.
The look on their faces. Ha, priceless. Envy, jealousy, butcher knives, shock, horror, all in one.
That'd been a year ago. Now, we're inseparable. During breakfast, lunch and tea, during classes, during detention, now even during the night.
“Marshy, come on.”
I opened the door slightly, peeking through the gap. He was smiling. As was I.
“May I come in?” he asked politely, standing back and rocking on his feet.
I grinned broadly and shook my head. He took a step closer.
“Please?” he attempted a pout.
Again, I shook my head and he took another step closer.
“Please?” he asked again, voice softer.
Shaking my head was becoming a routine.
“Is that your final answer?” His voice was low, like a seducing growl.
I nodded, still smiling pleasantly.
He took another step closer and without warning, kissed me passionately, right arm against the door.
“Are you sure?” he whispered, parting from my lips. His face was mere millimetres away and I could feel his hot, soft breath.
I grinned and pushed my lips forward. He immediately kissed me again, one hand sliding through the gap to land on my waist, the other pushing the door open and allowing himself to walk in.
I detached myself from him and moved back very slightly. I gazed into his warm, loving, grey eyes. He pecked me again and pulled back quickly, grinning broadly.
So maybe we are more touchy feely than other couples, so what?
“So where are we going tonight, honeybum?” I asked him, stepping over my trunk as he guided me slowly by the waist, walking me backwards.
He chuckled his low growl and stopped walking, “Out. Come on, put a jumper on.”
I held his hands in place, running my fingertips over them. I raised an eyebrow. “Okay then. Hold on.”
I pulled his hands off and skipped over to the bathroom where I brushed my long brown hair which fell to my under arms. It naturally waved towards the bottom of my hair, maybe because I kept twisting it around my finger whenever I saw him. But meh, I don't know.
“I hope you didn't fall in or anything. I'm not gonna reach in the toilet for you, toodledoo.” Of course he was joking. I grinned to myself and put the brush down.
“Coming sweetiepie.” This name calling game, it's pretty fun when there are people giving you odd looks. On the other hand... What the heck, its still pretty fun.
I walked out of the bathroom to find Sirius sitting on the edge of my bed, holding my jumper as he waited patiently for me to come out.
“Come on Hon'.” I reached out for my jumper and he lifted it above my head, which was almost impossible to retrieve as I was a good eight inches shorter than him.
“Give it, give it back.” I squealed, jumping up and down. He laughed. I jumped on to my bed and he lowered his arm.
“Munchkin.” he chuckled. I wasn't even sure if he knew what a munchkin was.
“Oh, you!” With that I jumped on to his back, wrapping my arms tightly around his neck and my legs around his toned stomach.
He threw my jumper into my face and ran around the room, holding on to my wrists to make sure I wouldn't fall off.
He fell backwards on the spare bed and I unwrapped my legs, slapping him lightly on the chest to make him get off. I giggled as he turned over so he was lying on top of me.
“Do you wanna go then?” he wobbled his eyebrows teasingly. I giggled again and leaned up to kiss him. He pushed me back down and pressed harder, arms on either side of my head. He smiled into my lips and lifted himself off. “Seriously, let's go.”
“Seriously, Siriusly.” I muttered, rolling my amber eyes as I got up. “Fine, fine, let's go.”
He held my hand as he helped me up. He held open the door for me and I slapped him on the back of the head as I walked past. Giggling, I ran away as I knew he'd come after me. And so he did. In return, he lifted me up and put me on his shoulders, running down the steps. I squealed as he let me down on an arm chair. He ran away again, towards the door of the Common Room.
“Sirius!” I yelled after him. Smiling to myself, I ran after him. Just as I was about to open the door, someone suddenly grabbed my shoulder, whispering hoarsely into my ear: “Boo.”
Sirius barked with laughter, pulling me against his chest as I slapped him. He opened the door and pulled me along the corridor, my hand snugly in his.
He pulled me down the stairs, only stopping so I could regain my breath.
“Where are we going?” I panted as he pulled me through the Entrance Hall.
“I told you,” Sirius replied, slowing down, “Out. Want me to carry you?”
He didn't even give me a chance to answer when picked me up under the arms and put me over his, my hands wrapped around his neck.
I gave him multiple quick kisses as he carried me out, towards the Black Lake. The night was dark, only to be lightened by the stars and the gigantic moon.
“Don't throw me in!” I screamed as he got closer and closer towards the bank. I wrapped my arms around his neck even more tightly. He laughed and twirled me around before placing me softly on the grass just before the edge.
Sirius joined me on the grass, lying down just besides me, head in his hand as he propped himself up by the elbow. He gazed into my eyes as I smiled.
“Your eyes have a lot more gold in them tonight.” he noted casually as I followed him in propping my head up. Of course, the moon had enhanced my eyes.
He reached out to take hold on my free hand, caressing it gently. I let myself down and rolled over closer towards Sirius so that I would be gazing at him when I looked up. I flashed him a grin as he idly looked down at my illuminated face.
Above his head, the moon was round and bright.
“Merlin's Beard!” I yelled out at the beauty of it. Sirius turned to look as well. “It's so pretty! I just wanna reach out and touch it!”
Sirius laughed at my dumbness and placed my hand on the right side of his chest.
He lowered his head so he could whisper into my ear: “I could be your moon if you want me to.” His grin was roguish.
I lightly tickled his right peck – where he placed my hand - with the ends of my fingers, causing him to shudder slightly. I kept running my fingertips along his chest, onto his collarbone and around his shoulder. I played with the back of his black hair, pulling at it lightly. Sirius took my other hand and placed it around the other side of his shoulder. Then he placed his hand at the small of my back, pushing it up towards him. He gazed down at me, the intensity of his stare caused me to blush. But he didn't kiss me. No, not yet.
“Don't break up with me.” he whispered imploringly. Throughout the whole year we'd been together, I thought that there would be nothing he could do that would surprise me. But this, this certainly did surprise me.
Nevertheless, I managed to breath back, “I won't.”
I watched as his mouth turned into a wide smile. I pushed my head up and placed my mouth onto his. Sirius' right hand pulled back a lock of hair from my eyes, his left rubbing from my neck to the bottom of my back.
I parted my lip slightly as he pulled back. Immediately, he lunged forward again, nibbling and sucking on my bottom lip, placing his hand on my neck, clearing it from the hair.
He moved from my lip to my jaw line, slowly going up as he took his time in one position. He pressed his lip against the area under my ear, planting multiple kisses. Then he moved back down my neck. I moaned softly into his ear as I played around, messing his hair.
He stopped as he reached the bottom of my neck. He pulled my jumper and spaghetti strap to the side, letting it slide off my shoulder. I immediately shivered from the cold.
“Are you alright?” Sirius asked softly, rubbing both my arms. I nodded quickly and leaned my head against his.
He pushed me back gently and started kissing my shoulder, leaving multiple hickeys around the collarbone.
Once he was done, he pulled my jumper back up over my shoulder and laid back down, pulling me with him.
“Mel-” he began as we stared up to the stars.
“Marshmallow.” I corrected him, snuggling up closer towards him.
“Marshmallow,” I could feel his grin, “You love me right?” Behind his smile, I could feel his slight anxiety.
I didn't have to think about it. “Yeah... I do.”
Sirius calmed down a bit besides me and he sighed in relief. He turned so that part of his chest was lying on top of me, one arm wrapped around my waist.
“I love you too.” He said in his most sincere manner. Then he moved in for another kiss. I stopped him with a finger on his lips. He looked at me questioningly.
“Sirius, promise me something.” I told him as I pulled back my finger.
“Never call me Melanie ever again.” He hesitated and I smirked, biting my bottom lip.
“That's not what I expected... but okay.”
I giggled. “Promise me another thing.” I turned to look back at the black sky.
“Mmm?” He continued moving his head closer to mine so that his nose was on my cheek and his lips were trailing along the jaw.
“Stay with me forever.”
He thought about it for a moment, pulling his head back so he could look at me clearly, “Forever? How long's forever?”
He chuckled as I hit his arm and moved forward again, mouth against my ear. “I promise.”
He pulled the my jumper and strap from the other side and sucked on the flesh around that collarbone. I took his free hand and placed it on my knee. He kneaded my knee softly with his thumb, gradually going higher and higher. He moved his face again so he was nibbling on my ear.
“Marshmallow,” he said as he removed his hand from my thigh and played with my fringe, “Will you marry me?”
The world seemed to have stopped. I turned towards him slowly, breath stuck in my throat.
“I mean, once we get out of here.” He said quickly. He was taking my shocked expression as something negative.
“Sirius, yes!” I squealed, all manner of romance gone. I was happy, excited and euphoric. “Yes!”
He beamed broadly and moved so his face was directly above mine. He lowered himself and kissed me for my most passionate kiss yet.
A/N: I don't know what AU means, but the ending obviously doesn't happen. So I think it is AU. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. Sorry if it was too strong or too cheesy. I was in a cheesy mood.
Thanks for reading, Please Review & Hope you liked it. :)
