The week went by quickly, every class they had a lecture about NEWTS. Professor McGonagall lectured them an entire class about how important they were.
At dinner Friday evening Sirius complained "We have so much homework! How are we supposed to deal with tryouts and homework? We need a new seeker. We have all our lovely chasers" I stuck my tongue out at him. "and we have our beaters, me and Frank. So all we need is a seeker. But that could take forever."
"Oh shove it Sirius we can do our homework tonight and than have the weekend free." I told him.
"You mean do homework on a Friday night? Are you insane?" Sirius asked. His mouth dropped open and his fork clattered to his plate.
"Sirius it won't kill you." Annabelle added.
"It might!" Sirius said dramatically.
"Sirius you'll be okay I promise" I said.
"I won't I won't" He put his hand on his forehead and sighed dramatically.
"Sirius stop being a drama queen! I need the whole team to be there for tryouts. So you have to get our homework done so everything goes smoothly." James said.
"Wow James. Promoting homework. Never thought I'd see the day" Lily added sarcastically.
We ate and than headed up to the common room. Lily, James, and Peter took the comfy chairs by the fire, while Annabelle and Remus cuddled on the love seat, and Sirius and I took the couch. All you could hear by us were the sounds of quills scratching and Sirius tell us that he was going to die from homework overdose.
"This is insanity! I still have Binns essay on goblin rebellions!" Sirius complained.
"Well maybe if you paid attention in classes you would have the notes to do it." Lily told him.
"We have the system of note taking!, Which I like I don't feel as bad for sleeping in class actually I never felt bad but yeah." Sirius rambled on.
"Whatever Sirius your still stupid" Lily teased.
"I'm hurt!" Sirius feigned shock.
"Sirius just finish the damn homework, I'm hungry!" I huffed.
"Well take someone else down to the kitchen's." He suggested.
"No! You have to go you always get the better food, cause they don't like James. And Annabelle and Remus slid off somewhere to make out, and Peter doesn't like going with me and Lily is finishing her homework for the whole year." I sounded like a New-Yorker I was talking so fast.
"Okay okay I'll finish, go write in your diary or dance or something." Sirius gave in.
"Fine I will!" I said with pride. I got out my journal and started writing to waste the time.
Our first week of school is over, it went by so fast! This year is going to be crazy. Quidditch Tryouts are tomorrow, our team needs a new seeker. Our team is going to kick butt this year! WOO! haha. Ugh, everything with the most amazing boy ever is the same, he will never know I like him. Never. I'm not ruining it. Annabelle and Remus are so cute and couply it's cute but I want it. I'm almost jealous. We'll actually I am but yeah. Sirius said he is finished, we are going down to the kitchens now.
"Do you have the cloak and the map it's after curfew." I asked.
"Duh Ballerina I think I ahead remember I'm a mischief maker." He said with a glint in his eye.
We walked down to the kitchens, narrowly avoiding Filch and his brand new cat Mrs. Norris. Sirius tickled the pear, and we entered the kitchens. The house elves made us a whole dessert, with cookies and ice cream and hot chocolate.
We decided to sit and eat in the kitchens "So Bee I haven't gotten to talk to you really this year, How was your summer truly?" Sirius asked.
"Awful Sirius. You should know. My parents were trying to set me up with Lucius. They were pushing the dark arts more because they knew I wouldn't be back after this summer. So it was dreadful." I answered truthfully.
"I'm sorry ballerina I wish I had been there to save you."
"It's 'Kay Siri, I never have to go back."
"Good. Still thinking about becoming an auror?"
"Of course! What about you Siri?" I asked.
"Always. James is pretty sure he is going to become one to."
"Follow in his parents footsteps. How are Mr. and Mrs. Potter?"
"They're good. Sweet as can be as always. Mrs. Potter retired this summer but Mr. Potter is still head of the auror department." Sirius said.
Sirius kept staring at me and I could feel his gaze. It was kind of nerve wracking. "Siri we better head back up we have to get up to watch tryouts in the morning."
"Yeah. Yeah." He sounded distant like he was thinking about something important.
"What are you thinking about?" I asked.
He snapped out of his reverie "Nothing nothing."
"Uhmmm suree. But let's go" We put the cloak over us and huddled closer to Sirius without feeling guilty.
We walked up to the Gryffindor Tower without any problems. All of our friend must have gone up to bed, or weren't back yet.
"Night Ballerina" I walked up to the girls dorm all I could think about was how much longer could I last being just friends with Sirius because my feeling for him were getting stronger by the day.
I laid down in bed and all my thoughts were wrapped up in Blair. Her hair. Her smile. Her eyes. Her laugh. She is every kind of wonderful.
James walked in to the dorms "Hey Padfoot. How was hanging with Bee?"
"It was good." I answered automatically, I was still thinking about Blair.
"Interesting. Rounds with Lily were intense. She so freaking cute and she has definitely started to fill out more."
"Cool." I answered again.
"Okay your wrapped up in your head and aren't paying much attention. So I'm going to sleep tryouts in the morning."
BLAIR'S POV AGAIN:
I walked into the dorm and Lily and Annabelle's beds were empty. Dorcas and Alice's hangings were closed so they must have been asleep.
I started getting ready for bed and taking off my makeup when Lily walked in.
"Hey Bee, how was going to the kitchens?"
"It was what it always is." I answered evasively.
"Still not admitting your feelings for Sirius?" Lily questioned.
"Still not admitting your feelings for James?" I fired back.
"Whatevs Bee, you know you love him."
"Whatevs Lils, you know you love him." I mimicked.
"So are you. Now I'm going to sleep James needs the team for tryouts at 10."
I fell asleep and morning came soon. I woke up at 7:30 for my daily morning dance stretches and such. I showered and changed, when Annabelle woke up.
"Have fun with Remus last night?" I asked.
"Always." She answered with a smirk.
"Hurry up loser. I'll wait for you and we can go down to breakfast. Annabelle finished showering and such and we headed down to breakfast. The rest of the team was down there
We all ate and than headed down to the pitch.
"Tryouts shouldn't take long, because we're only looking for a seeker." James told the team.
"Good, cause I don't want to be here all day." Annabelle said.
"Cause you wanna hangout with your boyfriend!" Sirius teased.
"Duh!" She said.
We got to the pitch and there were about 20 students ranging for 3rd to 7th year. Some looked nervous, some bored, some over confident, and some looked really slutty.
"What are Suzanne Slut and Brooke Bitch doing here?!" Annabelle whispered frantically. Suzanne was the fakest, sluttiest, bitchiest, skaniest girl you will ever meet and Brooke is her little minion. They are the head of the Sirius and James fan club.
"Gawd. Probably here to piss us off and to suck up to James and Sirius." I answered.
"Okay everyone were here to tryout for seeker. If that isn't what you do than leave now. If you aren't here to work and be the best than leave now. If you aren't here.." James started saying.
"Okay Prongs they get it." Sirius said.
"As I was saying. Let's start by seeing you fly around the pitch 5 times."
There were a few good ones and a couple that really stood out. But the rest looked nervous and shaky on a broom. Or just stupid, like Suzanne and Brooke.
James ran them through a few more drills and narrowed it down to about seven. The last seven had to each go after the snitch and see who had the fastest time.
The top three were a fifth year named Sarah Drake, a sixth year named Brian Bell, and a fourth year named Lee Jones.
"Okay were going to play a game, were going to let the snitch go and whoever catches it first wins." James said. Brian caught it first but just barely because Sarah almost caught it.
"Were going to talk this over for a minute, just hang on." James said. "Okay team huddle up."
"I think Brian. He caught the snitch in the game, and his time almost beat Sarah's and he flew really really well." I said.
"I think Sarah. She almost caught it in the game, and had the highest time, her flying is a little weird but it works for her." Annabelle said.
"I vote Brian." Sirius added.
"I vote Sarah." Frank decided.
"I vote..." James started saying.
A/N tehehe who did James vote for? This one is a little shorter than the last I think. Sorry it took so long for the last chapter I had a little trouble getting it validated. Hopefully this one is faster! Tell me what you think! Reviews make me happy (:
