“Merlin! There’s a troll coming down the stairs…..oh wait that’s just you, Addie! My bad.”
“Oh yeah Sirius, well….” Quick mind, come up with a witty insult. “….you smell bad!” Thanks a lot brain. I really appreciate it.
“Nice one.” He replied with a chuckle.
“Oh shut up, I’m still tired. Hey, where are the others?”
“Moony and Prongs didn’t want to wait any longer, so I, being the gentleman that I am, offered to wait for you.”
“How chivalrous of you. Quick, let me grab my medieval gown, you get Excalibur, and we’ll go to Diagon Alley on horseback.”
“M’lady,” He bowed and offered his arm. “Shall we begin our noble quest?”
“Let us climbth aboard thy noble steed. This is fun lets be medieval all day.”
“Only if we can be pirates tomorrow.”
“Cometh ye goode Sir Knight!”
“Wow, Addie! You mean you’re done all ready?” asked Remus incredulously.
“Yeah, Fuzz! I think you set a new world record!” James chimed in.
Fuzz. They got Moony, Padfoot, and Prongs, and I got stuck with Fuzz. Did I tell you about our nicknames? I guess not. Well you see, Remus is a werewolf, hence the name Moony. We (meaning Sirius, James, and I) eventually found out and being the good friends that we are, found out a way to help. The marauders are animagi. Sirius is a big, black, shaggy dog. James is a tall, handsome stag. And I am a super cute, little red and white kitten. So they gave me the name Fuzz. I know, so original.
“Well, now that we are finally all here, where should we start reeking havoc?” asked Sirius.
We all looked at each other and simultaneously shouted “ICE CREAM!” and we began our run to the ice cream parlor. It was one of those “we know each other so well that we can read each other’s thoughts” kind of moments. James made it in first.
“Florean, my good man.”
“James Potter,” he said with a smile. “where are yo…..”
And just at that moment, Sirius came barging through the door, followed by Remus, and then me.
“Here they are, now what can I get for you?”
“The usual.” Remus replied, slightly out of breath.
“Coming right up.”
We sat down at our favorite table right outside the shop. And as you should know, nothing with the marauders is ever quiet. The arguing should start in 5,4,3,2…
“No fair, Prongs, you cheated.” Sirius complained. “I would’ve won if you didn’t throw that old hag’s tray of jellied rat eyeballs onto the street. You purposely made me slip.”
You see, these boys are every competitive. We started out running merrily to the ice cream parlor, and before you knew it, they had turned it into a race. First Remus tripped over an owl cage (freeing the owl, might I add), then James tripped over him. Sirius somehow managed to jump over them and kept running, but then ran into some poor kid. James and Remus scrambled to their feet and took off again. It was neck and neck until James purposely knocked over the said tray, causing the other two to slip. Where was I during all this? I was desperately trying to keep up and avoid hitting pedestrians along the way. I’m not the fastest person alive, nor the most coordinated.
“Hey, a guy’s gotta do what a guy’s gotta do.”
The arguing went on until they got their ice cream, then all was forgotten. Very short attention spans, those marauders. And while I was devouring my soft chocolate ice cream cone covered in rainbow sprinkles, I began thinking; I don’t understand rock, paper, scissors. Now I know that muggles made the game, but even from their point of view, it doesn’t make any sense. Rock beats scissors, now that makes sense. Your rock has crushed my scissors; I can’t cut with these anymore. Scissors beats paper, which makes sense, too. You cut up my paper, this’ll take forever to put back together, you got me. But then there’s paper covers rock. How does that work? I mean, the rock is fine; there is no damage to rock whatsoever. It can break through the paper at any time. It should be rock, dynamite with a cutable wick, scissors. Dynamite could tackle that rock….
“We’ve been calling your name for the past five minutes.” said Remus in an exasperated tone.
“Oh, sorry. What were you saying?”
“Never mind.” He said.
“Anyway,” I began. “This is getting boring. Let’s explore muggle London.”
“Hey, I’m up for anything new.” Sirius explained in a bored voice.
So we paid for our frozen treats and went to the Leaky Cauldron. As we walked out the door to the muggle world, I realized I had never really explored the town before, and therefore had no idea where to go.
“Anyone know where to go now?” I asked. Silence. “Alright then, left or right?”
“Definitely left.” Sirius said knowingly. “I have a good feeling about going left.”
“Right it is!” said James.
Sirius frowned and followed us on our journey to the right of the Leaky Cauldron. After about half an hour of wandering aimlessly down the streets, I realized we were lost.
“Face it, Prongs,” I said. “We’re lost.”
“We are not lost, Fuzz” he replied. “Trust me.”
“She’s right Mate. We’ve past that café three times already.” Remus agreed. “Hey, where are we going anyway?”
“Now that my friend is an excellent question.” replied Sirius. “Where are we going?”
“Hmmmm,” James began. “Never thought about that.”
“I know!” Remus exclaimed. “Let’s go to one of those cinema things and watch a muggle movie.”
“Check out the brain on Moony.” Sirius said. “That’s a good idea, but sadly, we’re still lost and I have no idea where this ‘cimena’ thing is.”
“Well Pads, we’ll just ask for directions.”
“Moony you’re a genius. Now all we have to do is find a guy that’s missing a leg.”
“Addie, how will that help us?” said Remus.
“Simple Rem, if he’s only got one leg, then he’ll know the quickest route to any destination. Duh.”
“Your mind amazes me.” He remarked.
Just have to give credit to a couple of people. The rock, paper, scissors joke was from Demetri Martin. I just watched his special and felt compelled to add it in there. The one leg joke was from a friend who got it from another comedian. Thanks for the read, and thank you in advance for the review!
