Hi, everyone! This is my first fanfic, so bear with me. Sorry this chapter is so short, I'll make the next one longer :o) Please tell me what you think in a review! xoxoxo
The second she woke up, Lily Evans knew something wasn't right. Someone's arms were around her waist. She tried to lay still until she figured it out. Memories from the previous night came filtering back. Gryffindor party. Drinking too much firewhiskey. Sirius pulling her up the stairs to his dormitory. Oh, Merlin- Sirius. As far as she could remember, they hadn't done anything. To the best of her knowledge they were both still fully clothed. She remembered kissing him- a lot- but that was all.Then, suddenly, the thought shot through her brain- James. James Potter, who was best friends with Sirius. As much as Lily detested James, she would hate to ruin their friendship, which would definitely happen if James found out what happened. Merlin. Lily sat up gingerly, trying not to wake Sirius, but it was inevitable.
"Wassgoinon?" Sirius bleated loudly. Lily clapped a hand over his mouth.
"Sirius Black, if you say a single word, I swear to God I'll curse you into next Tuesday!" she hissed.
Sirius blinked up at her confusedly. "Evans, I.."
"Dammit, Black! Shut your mouth!" Lily gave him such a look that he flinched. "Get out of bed and come with me. NOW." Sirius followed her meekly out the portrait hole and into a tiny broom cupboard. When they were inside, Lily locked the door.
"Well, Evans, it's not exactly an ideal location, but I guess it'll do.." Sirius joked, waggling his eyebrows.
Lily glared at him. "I don't have any time for your wisecracks, Black, so shut up and sit down," she ordered, shoving him down onto an overturned bucket. "Now. What do you remember about last night?" she demanded.
"Erm.. Party. You, me. Kissing in my bed," he smirked.
Lily sucked in a breath. This was not good. "Black, you have to swear to me that you won't tell ANYONE. Especially not James."
Sirius looked at her like she was absolutely insane. "Do you think I have a death wish, Evans?" He stopped for a second. "Wait.. you're not starting to fall for him, are you?"
Now it was Lily's turn to look at Sirius like he had lost his mind. "I hope to God you're kidding, Black," she snorted. "I have absolutely no feelings for that arrogant toerag, and I advise you to NEVER bring it up again. But if you must know, I don't want this coming between your friendship with him, since he's so dead-set on going out with me."
Sirius nodded. "I suppose that makes sense," he conceded. "Erm.. Thank you."
"You're welcome," Lily said. "Now, go back to your dorm. This never happened, all right?" In response Sirius stood up and left the broom cupboard. Lily waited for a few minutes, trying to control her heart rate before going back into the common room.
