Background:   Font color:  

As Halloween and the first Hogsmeade trip of the year approached, date offers flew around the school. Sirius received a myriad of offers, turning down all of them. It made you feel guilty. You pulled him aside after yet another disappointed admirer walked dejectedly away.

^You can go with someone if you want to,^ you said.

^I don’t want to,^ he assured to you.

^Alright. But really, I’ll be okay.^

^Well, same goes for you. Go with somebody.^

^I don’t have anyone I’d like to go with.^

^So you’re hanging out with Mya and Lily?^

^Nope. They both have dates. I’m flying solo.^


^You’ll have fun with the guys, though.^

^They’ve got dates as well.^


^Kat! Come on! I’m hungry!^ Mya yelled from down the hallway.

^Coming!^ you and Sirius headed towards your friends.

After the last class of the day, you got your first offer to Hogsmeade. It was from a 5th year boy, Roger Casey.

^Hey Kat!^

^Hi Roger,^ you said unenthusiastically. He was never your favorite person.

^Would you like to go to Hogsmeade with me?^ No! You needed a good excuse. Or the truth…

^Sorry, I can’t. I’m married.^ Sirius started to crack up behind his hand.

^Oh, okay,^ he said unsurely, and then walked away. Sirius didn’t even wait until he was out of earshot before he removed his hand and just laughed. You joined in. The others, except for Remus, who was also laughing, looked at you funny.

^Why’s that so hilarious?^ James asked, although you could tell he liked the response.

^It just is!^ Sirius said between laughs.

^Okay…^ Lily said. Just then a girl walked up to Sirius.

^May I steal your excuse?^ he whispered. You nodded.

^Hi Sirius,^ the girl said in a flirty voice.


^Do you have a date for Hogsmeade?^


^Would you like to go with me?^

^I can’t,^ he replied seriously, ^I’m married.^ The girl frowned and walked away as you tried not to laugh. You didn’t know why you found it so funny. Maybe because you were telling the truth to total strangers and weird guys, and no one knew. Probably. But each time Sirius got an offer and told someone he was married, you laughed hysterically. Your friends were exchanging disturbed looks; they’d all thought you’d gone crazy. But you and Sirius loved it. It was the first time you’d been able to laugh about everything. Sirius turned down four more offers before you got to dinner, and the excuse didn’t get old.

^Are you two alright?^ Peter asked concernedly.

^Perfect!^ Sirius laughed.

^Fantastic!^ you laughed.

^I don’t get it,^ Lily said as Sirius told yet another girl that no, he couldn’t go to Hogsmeade with her, he was married. ^Why’s it so funny?^ You just shrugged.

You and Sirius couldn’t look at each other without laughing throughout the entire meal. You remembered what he’d said the other night by the lake. You were married. And you were dealing.

The weekend before Halloween brought Hogsmeade. Mya and Lily rushed around preparing for their dates. You threw on a t-shirt and jeans and ran a brush through your hair, and settled down in the common room to wait. Sirius joined you a moment later.

^Hey Kat.^

^Hey Sirius.^

^Still no date for today?^


^You wanna hang out?^


^Cool.^ You were celebrating inside. A whole day with just Sirius. Nice prospect. Very nice. You noticed for the first time that day how hot he looked. He was dressed like you, in jeans and a black t-shirt. And damn, he looked good. As usual.

^Ready to go?^

^Sure.^ You yelled up to Lily that you were leaving and walked out of the common room with Sirius.

^So what’s your favorite color?^ Sirius asked randomly on the way.


^What’s your fav-^

^I heard you! Why are you asking?^

^Because I don’t know.^


^Aren’t you going to ask me?^

^Okay… Sirius, what’s your favorite color?^



^Yeah…but I like it.^

^Reason enough.^

^Don’t you like your last name?^

^What does Simmons have to do with colors?^

^Oh, come on. Black’s got a certain appeal to it. Kat Black.^ You scrunched up your nose. ^No? How about Katherine Black?^

^Don’t call me Katherine. Ever.^

^Right then. Kathy Black? Katie Black?^

^No and no.^

^How about Black, Kat? Get it? Black cat!^ He laughed. You didn’t. ^That’s a no, then.^ he thought. ^Kate Black? Doesn’t anyone ever call you Kate?^


^Can I call you Kate?^

^If you really feel the need to.^

^Ok, Kate. K.B.?^

^Not K.B. Please.^

^Kat, then?^

^Kat sounds nice.^

^Kat Black.^ You didn’t object. It did have a nice ring to it. You walked on in silence until Hogsmeade village was in sight.

^What’s your favorite candy?^

^What’s with the random questions?^ you asked.

^Your husband should know these things!^ You both laughed.

^Okay. I like Chocolate Frogs, or a plain old slab of Honeyduke’s finest chocolate.^


^But so good. How about you, Mr. Exciting?^

^Although Chocolate Frogs are high on my list, I’d take some Every Flavored Beans any day.^

^Ah, a risk taker!^

^If I do say so myself.^ You rolled your eyes playfully at him.

^You’re nutters, Black.^

^Just the way I like it, Black.^

^What’s your favorite food?^ you asked.

^I thought I was asking the questions around here?!^

^Not anymore. Answer.^

^I like steak.^

^Me too! Or strawberries!^

^Steak and strawberries? You’re a weird one, Mrs. B.^

^I said or, not and.^

^No objections to the name?^ No! I love it!

^Nope. It’s the truth.^


^Yeah.^ Another quiet period fell as you walked down the street. As you neared the Three Broomsticks, Sirius asked,

^Kat? You wanna get a butterbeer?^

^Sure.^ He opened the door for you and you walked inside.
