Disclaimer; Oh, How I wish I owned the Black Brothers, I'd even settle for just one but sadly they belong to J.K Rowling. I do however own Victoria and the plot. Thanks for reading!
amazing chapter image by Conspiracy. of TDA.
Victoria stared blankly out the window watching a flock of birds as they flew over the empty paddocks, her mind however was focused on the conversation down the hallway. The arguing pair we're muffled from the wooden door but she could just barely make out the voices of Evans and Black.
"Why the hell did you threaten her?" Came Lily's voice, obviously annoyed. "She's never going to agree after the way you treated her. We're supposed to get her on our side not kill her for pete's sake."
"She bloody well deserved it" Replied Sirius.
"For doing what? She hadn't said anything at the point at which you threatened to her then your brother. I know you hate him, but she is too important to loose right now"
"Don't you think I know that?" He sneered. "But it's not like she was ever going to agree willingly anyway so I just sped up the progress"
"By what? Threatening her life, Oh yeah that's totally going to get her on our side. Don't you remember what Dumbledore said? We need her otherwise this entire mission fails. Do you really want that blamed on you?" The creaking of the floorboards signified that Evans had left and Victoria found herself straining to her Black.
When the door opened a couple of hours later, Victoria fought back the urge to roll her eyes. She should have seen this coming. At least this way there was the possibility of finding out this 'mission'.
"I haven't changed my mind Evans"
"I know, I've come to talk to you though" Lily said, dragging an identical chair in and setting it across from Victoria's. "I remember you from school, you and Regulus" She started, her eyes staring directly into Victoria's. "I know I can't say that I know how you're feeling so I'm not even going to bother. But I want to help you" Before Victoria could cut her off, She continued. "I know what it's like to be in love though and what it's like to have to make a choice" Victoria stared up at her. "Sirius is stupid, everyone knows it" Victoria smirked. "We don't want to kill you, or Regulus but we need your help" Victoria nodded for her to continue and so she did. "We're called The Order of the Phoenix, we're working against You-Know-Who and we know Regulus is working for him" Victoria breath caught in his throat.
"You don't understand, Regulus is not a bad guy" Lily nodded.
"I know that. He just made some wrong choices. We've been keeping an eye on you two ever since you left Hogwarts, we've seen what he's like around you. Well at least we women have, the boys are as clueless as ever but the point is that he loves you so much"
"Which explains why he always leaves" Victoria snapped, rubbing the tears that we're violently spilling from her eyes away with the back of her hand.
"I can help that pain go away. I know how that feels, James leaves all the time to go on missions for the Order and I'm left alone. It kills me, also worrying if he's going to come home alive" Lily paused, placing her hand on Victoria's shoulder. "We really need your help though, we can keep you safe and no one will ever suspect you"
"Suspect me?" Victoria asked, staring directly at Lily's eyes which were diverted to the floor. "What exactly are you going to make me do?"
"I'm sorry" Lily replied, giving Victoria a quick squeeze on the shoulder before leaving Victoria to imagine all the crazy ideas.
Victoria was left alone for what remained of the day and when night fell she simply couldn't wait for her dreams to be filled with a mixture of Regulus and this new 'mission' of hers but it was short lived when the door creaked open once more.
"Do I get to hear what this lovely mission is now?" Victoria asked sarcastically, without bothering to turn around.
"You're different than I remember you" Victoria spun around to see Sirius leaning against the door frame casually.
"Kidnapping can do that to a person" Sirius chuckled.
"Still got that sense of humor, I see"
"Of course I've changed, It's been at least five years since we last talked" Anger was slowly spreading through her body. She couldn't believe the nerve of him.
"I know, I'm sorry" He placed his hand over hers and squeezed it softly.
"Yeah, right" She rolled her eyes. "I may have been stupid enough to believe that when I was nine but I'm eighteen now, and I'm not going to fall for it" She shook his hand over and walked over to the window, He followed her. "Why are you even here?"
"I'm part of the Order" Victoria sent him a glare. "I felt bad for before and I wanted to apologize. Besides, I was thinking about those things you said to me and the summer of fifth year. I'm sorry"
"Nothing happened in that summer, Sirius. Therefore you have nothing to be sorry for" She sent him another glare before staring out the window. He placed his hand on her cheek and tilted her head so she was looking right at him.
"You want to bet?" He whispered, placing a soft kiss on her lips.
Authors Note; Hehe, I'm evil right? I hope at least a few of you enjoyed this chapter even though I suppose it was a bit of a filler but slowly the chapters are becoming longer and more interesting. Next chapter is very important to the plot so make sure you watch out for it, I'm hoping shouldn't take more than a few weeks to get up but I make no promises. Like I mentioned in the previous chapter I am taking part in NaNoWriMo and I have the next chapter mostly written but after that their probably won't be many chapters left before Christmas rolls around. Anyway, thanks to everyone for reading and reviewing!
