I, Sirius Orion Black, did not fall in love. That was until her. Haley Jenkins was a shy girl who disliked attention and went unnoticed to all of the Hogwarts population, except me. The sad thing is the people who did notice her, treated her like shit. A muggle-born beauty with thick, dark, brown hair that flowed down her shoulders beautifully, paired with tantalizing brown eyes so stunning I often lost myself in them.

If one paid attention as closely as I did to her they would often find her crying in McGonagall’s old room on the 7th floor by the Room of Requirement. But nobody paid attention to her like I did. I wasn’t about to tell her, though.

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her
When she smiles


Don’t get me wrong she isn’t severely depressed or anything, she just doesn’t smile. She has just three friends who care for her and are the select few who get to see her smile, Alice Berns, Lily Evans, and Molly Prewitt. Watching her enough I have been blessed with seeing the angel smile once when Alice tripped and accidentally kissed Frank Longbottom.

It was so fleeting I almost thought it was my imagination, but her eyes sparkled with delight and I knew it had been there. I know she would smile more if she wasn’t so let down every day. She tries to break free of whatever is holding her back, hope often glimmering in her eyes, only to be kept in the invisible restraint someone has placed her in.

Now how many days in a year
She woke up with hope
But she only found tears
And I can be so insincere
Making her promises never for real
As long as she stands there waiting
Wearing the holes in the soles of her shoes
Now how many days disappear
When you look in the mirror
So how do you choose?


The one time I did interact with her I messed up, swearing to myself not to talk to her in fear of hurting her again. I promised to meet her in the common room that night to chat, but I landed detention right before and didn’t have time to tell her. The pain in her eyes was too much to bear and I will never risk putting it there again.

No one knows how I feel except the Marauders. Surprisingly sympathetic, they have helped me through everything as I slowly fall in love with the shy, invisible girl.

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her
When she smiles


I’m not even bothering to try and get over this girl. Not many people could do that according to Remus. But this girl has me so fixated I couldn’t if I tried. She isn’t for a quick shag or even a quick snog. Her smile is enough to brighten my day and I would never want to hurt her again.

In fact I would kill to be able to sit and talk to her without the fear that I will break her. The worst part is how arrogant I sound about it. I make it seem like I have that power when in all actuality it might have been a onetime thing, but I would still never risk the possibility.

Now how many lovers would stay
Just to put up with this
Day after day
Now how did we wind up this way
Watching our mouths for the words that we say
As long as we stand here waiting
Wearing the clothes or the soles that we choose
Now how do we get there today
When we're walking too far for the price of our shoes


It is now History of Magic, and she is twirling her hair around her finger and biting on a sugar quill. If she spoke up every once in awhile I’m positive she would be one of the most sought after girls in all of Hogwarts history.

Lately I have discreetly been asking Lily about her, why she is the way she is. All I know is that she is self conscious, but that does me no good. Who isn’t self conscious? Why is she self conscious? Lily wont answer a single question other than with a, “Why do you care if she is self conscious?” I refuse to answer, but if I ever get my hands on the guy, well I assume it is a guy making her self-conscious, who makes her feel badly about herself, he won’t live to tell the tale when I get through with him.

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her
When she smiles


The bell finally rings and I see her packing her things up hurriedly, as if hoping to go unnoticed by everyone around her, and my curiosity takes over once more. She quickly runs out of the room and I realize she is trying not to be late for something, I realize this might be the answer I have been looking for. She turns another corner and sees the person she was looking for: Lucius Malfoy.

Well your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

This is the story of a girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her


She pants heavily and I see my Malfoy’s eyes flash angrily at her. “Where have you been?” he hisses in a slimey voice.

“I’m-“ She swallows nervously while catching her breath. “I was just let out of class…” she stutters and I hear the fear in her voice.

This is the story of a girl
Her pretty face she hid from the world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her


But my attention quickly turns when I see Malfoy raising his hand preparing to strike. “Petrificus Totalus!” I bellow without thinking that I am blowing my cover.

Rage fills my body in a hot sweat and anger courses through my veins at the thought of what he was about to do. Haley turns, surprised, and runs toward me, hugging me tight.

This is the story of a - girl
Who cried a river and drowned the whole world
And while she looks so sad and lonely there
I absolutely love her
When she smiles


I glance down at her tiny figure and she is smiling up at me in the most breath taking way. I feel my pulse race at the angelic sight and I want nothing more than to hold her ‘til the end of time. I see her face inching towards mine ...

When she smi-iles!

And I make it my personal goal to keep her smiling
