*the plot and oc's are mine, the rest belongs to J.K.
Shay woke up to someone shaking her. She looked up and of course it was Sirius.
"What the hell do you want?"
"Because it's your birthday."
"Oh…right. Well as my birthday present, you’re going to let me sleep."
"Everyone will be over in a half hour" Sirius said and left the room.
"What! Oh Merlin!" Shay said jumping up.
She took a quick shower and got dressed. She put her hair in a messy bun and put on her favorite shirt and jeans. Shay walked out of her room and into the living room. Sirius's smiled when she entered the room.
"What?" Shay asked feeling a little insecure.
"You’re the only girl I know that looks better in jeans and a t-shirt than in a skirt."
"What a great compliment,” Shay said and pulled an annoyed face at him.
“You know what I meant,” Sirius conceded quickly.
Shay suddenly felt a little flush but let it go.
"Everybody should be here soon."
"So what are we going to do today?" she asked starting to get excited.
"Lily planned most of it. She said that she had to use something called a fellytone or something. I think we're going to a muggle restaurant and we're going out somewhere afterwards."
Shay became very excited and couldn't wait for the others to get there.
They heard a pop and turned around to see James standing with a present.
Shay jumped into his arms and he swung her around.
"Happy birthday blondie,” James said and set her back on her feet.
"So is Lily here yet?" James asked with a hopeful look on his face.
"Will you give it up Prongs? She's never going to go out with you."
"This year she will. I've changed. She'll see."
"James I believe her exact words the last time I talked to her were, 'The only good thing about leaving Hogwarts is that I won't have to see Potter on a daily basis.'" Shay said and patted his head.
"I don't believe it," James said in denial.
"Whatever you say James."
"So what have you been doing all summer James?"
"Oh nothing too much. Practicing quidditch, hanging with Padfoot and Mooney. Haven't seen much of Wormtail though. Where the hell is he?"
"He's on vacation in France with his family," Sirius said rolling his eyes.
"So…when is Lily coming?"
"UGH!" Sirius and Shay said together.
Shay was just about to say something when she heard another pop.
"I’m so happy to see you!" Shay said grabbing Lily into a big hug.
"Hey Lily," James said putting his hand through his black, untidy hair.
"Hello Pot… Wait, did you just call me Lily instead of Evans?"
"Yes, unless you want me to call you Evans?"
"No, that's fine,” Lily mumbled and looked anywhere but James.
Just then Sirius came up behind Lily and scared her to death.
"Sirius Black, I swear you’ll cause me a young death!"
"Nice to see you too."
Lily smiled and shook her head, and then she pulled him into a hug.
"So are Remus and Niki here yet?"
"They should be here any minute."
Just as Shay said that they heard a double pop. Remus and Niki showed up in the middle of the room.
Shay slammed them both into a hug, clunking their heads together.
"Jeez, I didn't know a hug could hurt so much," Remus said with a smile.
"I'm sorry. Hey, why did you guys come together?"
"Oh I've been staying at Remus's house for the past week," Niki said rubbing her head.
Shay started laughing.
"What's so funny?" Sirius asked while he was getting drinks.
"I think we're going to have to give Remus and Niki 'the talk'."
"Remus, I only have one word of advice. Protection. We don’t want a little Remus running around," Sirius said.
"Trust me; we got that talk the day that Niki came."
"It was so embarrassing. His mom was talking to me about birth control, condoms, and STDs. I wanted to crawl in a hole and die," Niki said, blushing like mad.
"Not to be crass but have you two had sex yet?" Shay asked.
A smile crept on Remus's face.
"Well we didn't listen to that talk for nothing!" Niki admitted and Remus blushed a little.
Sirius started laughing a pointing his finger at James.
“Odd man out!” was all Sirius said, but everyone got the jist.
"Wait, Potter you're a virgin?" Lily asked wide-eyed.
"Well…um…yea," he said putting his hand through his hair again.
"Will you quit doing that? One day I'm going to tie your hands behind your back."
"One day I'm going to be your boyfriend."
They heard a smack.
"Ow! What was that for?" James said rubbing the back of his head.
"For being a prick!" Lily said walking to the other side of the room.
"Ok, before all hell breaks loose, let's go eat," Sirius said.
They all headed outside to hail a taxi. Sirius, James, Shay, and Niki were a little confused because they weren't used to muggle things. Lily was trying to explain to them what hailing a taxi was.
"So you just stick your arm out and a taxi comes to you and takes you anywhere you want?" Shay asked.
"Yea, it's like the Knight Bus."
"Does it have beds in it like the Knight bus?" Sirius asked.
"No, it's a small car, or even a van sometimes," Lily said.
"Oh, does it go fast?" James asked.
"It can, but it has to go the speed limit."
"Speed limit? What's that?" Niki asked.
"Just get in the car."
They arrived at the restaurant. It was really fancy with a bunch of stuffy and snobby looking people, eating their food in peace. They all felt a bit out of place.
"Look at this food. It looks almost better than at Hogwarts!" James said as the waiter gave them a dirty look.
"What can I get you all to drink?"
"A bottle of whatever they're having," Sirius said pointing to the couple at the table next to them.
"I have to inform you that that is our most expensive wine." The waiter said.
"Does that mean it's the best?"
"Then we'll take a bottle of it."
Everybody was sitting at the table remembering old times.
"Remember that food fight we had 4th year?" Remus brought up.
A tittering of laughter spread across the table.
"Yea. Does anyone know who started that?" Lily asked.
"I sure as hell do!" Shay said giving Sirius and James a glare.
"What happened?" Niki asked.
"Ok. I was sitting across from Sirius and James. James's ego was a giant size at this time and I thought it needed deflating. So I told James a theory about him, Snape, whipped cream, woman’s panties and a goat. Let's just say he didn't like my theory too much." Shay said laughing.
"Well it wasn't true and of course I had to get her back. So I scooped up some mashed potatoes and flung them in her direction. And they just so happened to hit her in the face." James said innocently.
"Well, knowing me and my temper, I was pissed. But instead of hitting James, I hit Sirius, who was laughing his ass off, with a handful of pudding. He was kind of just asking for it," Shay explained with a sly smile.
"I noticed that my good friend James didn't have any food on him. So I shoved a piece of cake in his face," Sirius said and patted James on the back.
"That's when all hell broke loose. James threw something back at me but it hit a Slytherin, which I’m still trying to understand how he missed that bad. Slytherins started throwing food at us, we back at them. Then the other houses joined in and we all know the rest," Shay said through her laughter.
"By the way James, I never got you back for those potatoes."
"What are you going to do?"
"Oh, I don't know…"
Shay knocked her glass over and red wine went all over James's pants. Conveniently in the crotch area.
"Shay! I don’t care if it’s your birthday, I’ll kill you right here!" he exclaimed and jumped up to clean his pants.
He almost whipped his wand out without thinking about it before the waiter came over.
"What are you kids doing?!" the waiter asked furiously.
"It's called pay back," Shay explained as if it was the most obvious thing in the world.
"Get out! Get out and never come back!"
"Let's go before they call the police," Lily said pushing them out.
"What are police?" Sirius asked.
"Aurors, Sirius. Just think aurors."
After they found a little pizza place to eat at, they all went to a nightclub. They started drinking right away. Remus and Niki were by each other the whole night but Shay lost Lily and James somewhere. It was just Shay and Sirius. They were at the bar consuming more alcohol than ever necessary.
"You're never going to beat me. I'm Irish. It's in my blood," Shay said almost falling of her stool.
"I've never been beat by a girl and I'm not going to start now," Sirius said after he and Shay took another shot.
Shay then pushed him and he went flying off the chair.
"Ugh…I can't move,” Sirius moaned from his position on the floor.
"Then I win," Shay said.
"I'm now going to the dance floor,” she said and literally skipped away.
She started dancing with some random guy that approached her. She was getting really into it when someone pushed her. She turned around to see a girl with a crazy look on her face.
"Hey skank, get your own boyfriend!" the girl said in Shay's face.
"What’s the harm? It’s just dancing," Shay asked, irritatingly calm.
"How about I kick your arse!" the girl said and pushed Shay again.
"I don’t think you want to do that."
Beofre Shay knew what was happening, she felt a hand contact her face. Shay jumped on the girl, taking her down. Shay was scrappy; she had to be because she is short. Shay didn't get to do much damage because James and Remus pulled her off.
"Come on, we're leaving!" James said picking Shay up and throwing her over his shoulder.
He put her down only after they were at the end of the street.
"It's ok, I'm good. That girl started it. I was just defending myself."
"We saw the whole thing. It’s called rising above, Shay," Lily said with a disappointed shake of her head.
“Alright, Mum,” Shay answered sarcastically.
"Well let's go back to the house. Sirius is already there," Remus said pushing everyone along.
The house was only six blocks away but for a bunch of drunken people it seemed like forever. They finally got back to the house and James, Lily, Remus, and Niki decided to crash in the living room. Shay was looking for Sirius when she heard a noise coming from his room. He left the door cracked so Shay knew exactly what he was doing. He had a girl in his bed and they were doing a certain sin.
"I told him to lock his door," Shay thought as she went to get James.
She brought him down the hall to tell him what she wanted him to do. James laughed silently then put on a serious face.
He whispered, "On the count of 3. 1...2...3"
He busted through the door and started yelling.
"SIRIUS!! HOW COULD YOU?! I THOUGHT WE WERE IN LOVE!"
Shay had fallen against the wall because she was laughing so hard. She heard the girl scream and Sirius yelling.
"James, get out! I'm obviously in the middle of something!"
Shay watched the girl practically run out of the flat with a disgusted yet disturbed look on her face. Then Sirius came out and saw Shay on the floor.
"What?" she replied, acting as innocent as possible.
"It was your idea!"
"Yea, but if you would have locked your door it wouldn't have happened," Shay said.
"Why would you listen to her?" Sirius asked James.
"Because she's funny," James replied and helped Shay up from the floor.
"You guys are hopeless," Sirius said and slammed the door shut.
