-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is absolutely ridiculous! I mean, I know he wanted me to stand out and everything but this… I may as well have a ginormous fluro sign flashing the words “Look at me!” Ughh! I suppose I ought to explain: Mr. Smarmy’s house-elf just gave me the most beautiful red strapless dress ever! And then here comes the drama… I turn up at the Black’s place, open the doors, and you know what I see? Black and white! Everyone was dressed in black and white, and that wasn’t even the worst part! I was so late I came in the middle of Walburga Black’s speech! And it’s not like I could just disappear into the crowd… no! Because I was wearing a fricking red dress at a black-and-white-themed ball! Ok, Mr. Shredded Napkin, thank you for helping me vent my anger.

I rose from the seat I had recently occupied and dropped the napkin in a black iron-cast bin.

“So, ladies and gentlemen, I would like to congratulate Lucius and my darling niece, Narcissa, on their engagement.” Walburga concluded her speech to a thunder of applause.

I politely clapped along with the crowd as I walked aimlessly before a large object slammed into me. Oh, God! Something is humping my leg! My look of horror turned into that of pure joy as I turned to see my rather plump cousin, whose frame was illuminated by the full moon. “Peter! How are you? Put on a little weight round the middle didn’t you? Bet it’s all that Hogwarts food.” I playfully teased.

“I'm fi-hang on…What? Why do you mention Hogwarts?” Peter asked curiously.

“Didn’t auntie tell you? I'm coming to Hogwarts with you!” I squealed in delight.

Peter looked astonished before hugging me fiercely again.

“Who’s that, Pete?” a slightly deep voice asked.

I turned to see a tall, lean boy with messy black hair and slightly askewed glasses, looking between me and Peter curiously.

“Oh, hiya James. This is my cousin Tara, Tara this is one of my mates from Hogwarts, James Potter.”

I was suddenly knocked to the floor and felt a sloppy, wet kiss on my cheek; upon opening my eyes I saw a grinning Sirius.

James looked between us two, comprehension dawning on his face. “Tara? This is the Tara you told us about? The one you said you wanted to-” James was cut of by a feral snarl as Peter flew through the air, pouncing on Sirius. I looked on in boredom as Sirius struggled to get Peter; who had some newfound strength, off him.

“She’s my cousin, Sirius! My cousin! So that means no sex, shagging, bonking, love making, humping or any other words you might mean! Got it?” Peter asked furiously glaring down at Sirius.

“Got it, jeeze, Pete,” Sirius muttered before continuing in a louder voice as he stood back up, “Tara, mother sent me to get you, apparently it’s your turn to contribute something to the entertainment.”

James smirked “We did a firework display,” he said gesturing between himself, Sirius and Peter.

“Ah… ok,” I murmured before an idea came to mind lightening my face “Hopefully I can sneak away after this and go home… you guys wanna come?” I asked smiling slyly.

“Course!” Sirius replied.

“If Sirius is going then I’m game,” James answered before we all turned to Peter.

“What are you all looking at me for? Obviously I’m going! As if I would leave her alone with you two!” Peter snapped.

James grinned cheekily before grabbing my wrist. “You gotta – oomph” he groaned as Peter withdrew his elbow from James’ stomach.

“Come on, Tara,” Peter said.

I laughed under my breath, glancing back at a sour-looking James and a sniggering Sirius.

“I’d like to present Ms. Tara Drake” Walburga introduced as I approached the stairs of the stage.

I glanced, around my eyes pausing on Lucius talking with Narcissa, then the Marauders looking up at me expectantly, and then finally to my father who was talking to several important-looking businessmen gesturing up towards me. “This is a song I recently wrote,” I began as my throat started to thicken with emotion. I hated having to lie, it wasn't my song at all! I glanced over to my father again only to find him sneering at me, we loved eachother yes, but I had disobeyed him one to many times... And as a result, I was to sing ridiculous songs and claim I wrote them, not to mention I had a below average singing voice. At his frantic gesturing I opened my mouth and begun to sing.

There she goes she’s on top of the world
But the people around always bring her down
With a smile on her face she carries on
Hiding the scars that can be found
She prayed for trust
She prayed for love
She prayed for the life that could be found above
I never knew how she survived
When her life turned out to be such a lie
Tears stream down her face as she silently cried
Hoping everyday that she could die
In a blink of an eye, his vision is blurred
His fist collie with her face and sends her to the floor
Alone, she screams until he is gone
This hopeless life, she can take no more
She prayed for trust
She prayed for love
She prayed for the life that could be found above
I never knew how she survived
When her life turned out to be such a lie
Tears stream down her face as she silently cried
Hoping everyday that she could die
The people she loves will leave her
How can they tell such a lie?
Saying they’ll always be there
And will stay forever and ever
She prayed for trust
She prayed for love
She prayed for the life that could be found above
I never knew how she survived
When her life turned out to be such a lie
Tears stream down her face as she silently cried
Hoping everyday that she could die
She prayed for trust
She prayed for love
She prayed for the life that could be found above
She prayed for a better life 


I opened my eyes and saw many people surreptitiously cover their sniggering mouths before I smiled a small, sad smile and quietly left the stage, only to be intercepted by my father on my way to the Marauders. “Gentlemen, this is my daughter, Tara.”

I curtseyed slightly “Pleasure to meet you,” I said politely

“She’s positively charming!” the tall red-haired man said. “I would love to have her perform at some of my business functions,” he added, looking questioning at Nila who smirking at the girls obedience towards him, she did after all have a shockingly average voice.

“Yes, why don’t we discuss that now? Tara, you may leave at any time,” Nila said.

“Yes, father,” I answered, nodding my head to him.

I walked through the cream-coloured hall, pushing occasionally to squeeze past a gossiping couple. As I approached a long oak table covered in a white tablecloth, I spotted James, Sirius and Peter whispering frantically to each other.

“Oi! Guys I’m leaving, you coming or what?” I called, making them jump in surprise. Peter walked over and linked his arm with mine, making me giggle at his protectiveness. James linked his arm through my other and Sirius took the lead, taking us through several identical cream-coloured rooms before stopping in front of a large, sinister-looking fireplace. “After you, madam.” He gestured me onwards, brashly grinning the entire time.
