Marion glared at Kyle with eyes of steel as the blonde slut he was with backed away in fright.
“I can’t believe my brother was right about you! You arsehole! You- you good for nothing, cheating, slimy arsehole!” Marion screamed. Sirius attempted to keep her back, but he couldn’t. She made for Kyle again, but another familiar face smacked him in the jaw and held him up to the wall by his throat. Val, who had witnessed it all, had his hand clamped steadfastly around Kyle’s neck. He leaned in and whispered menacingly into his ear.
“I knew I was right about you, dickhead. You’re never going near my little sister again!” he looked back at Kyle and he smirked, lifting a knee sharply and kicking him in the nuts. He let Kyle fall as James followed a protesting Lily in. she found her friend and was initially going to harass her about leaving her alone with James, but as she drew nearer and took in the sight, she looked closely at Marion. To her complete shock, her remarkable turquoise eyes were glistening with tears. Marion NEVER cried. Then, she ran from the room completely, followed by her siblings, friends and mother.
Later that night, Marion still hadn’t stopped crying. She was sitting on the sofa weeping into Mischa’s shoulder, with Lily on the other side of her and her brothers on either side of them. James and Sirius sat opposite on an armchair. Sirius was looking darkly at the floor and shaking his head as James was thinking of ways to pay Kyle back. The conspicuous absence of their mother was to be expected, but no one seemed to care. Val broke the silence.
“I’m sorry, Marion.” He said.
“W-why are you sorry? Y-you kn-knew he was ch-cheating and I-I d-didn’t b-b-elieve you.” Marion managed between sobs. Her voice sounded so broken that it brought down the moods of her company even further.
“I’m sorry because I didn’t try hard enough. And I owe that to you as my little sister.” Val said, leaning over Mischa and stroking Marion’s heads. Then there was an abrupt knock at the door and the kids all looked at one another in confusion. James and Sirius got up.
“We’ve got it.” James smiled at Marion, who gave a watery smile in reply as the two boys left the room and disappeared down the hallway. Sirius opened the large, picturesque carved wooden door to see a familiar blonde figure standing there angrily with blood still dripping from his nose. He glared at the two boys in front of him.
“Move it, you two.” He growled. He tried to pass them James stuck up a hand.
“I don’t think so.” Was all he said. Kyle started on him.
“And what are you going to do about it, four eyes?” he growled. Sirius grabbed his shoulder and spun him around to face him.
“Why are you here, dickface?” he asked. Kyle smirked at him.
“I’m here to show that little whore and her over-protective brother what they get when they mess with me.” Kyle almost yelled. He was then cut short as Sirius clamped a hand around his throat and pushed him against the door frame, James behind him.
“What did you just call her?” James asked threateningly. When Kyle didn’t answer, Sirius jolted him.
“He asked you a question, you waste of space.” He cried, causing Marion and Lily to stick their heads around the door. Kyle smirked at her.
“I called her a whore and now I’m gonna call her a slut, a hoe, a bitch, a-“ that was all that he got out before Sirius was kicking him repeatedly in the gut. James was all for it at first, but when Sirius took him down from the door frame and pushed him outside, punching him in the face over and over again, he protested.
“Sirius, don’t! He’s not worth the effort or the trouble.” Sirius didn’t stop. Kyle was still putting up a fight against him although everyone knew that he was fighting a losing battle. Sirius was a lot stronger and had more stamina. Marion ran outside and cried out.
“Black, stop it. I know he’s a total arsewipe but he’s had enough.” She pleaded. Sirius stopped for a moment and looked at her.
“Please, I don’t want you in trouble.” She whispered in a shaky voice. Sirius took one more look at Kyle.
“I hope one day you realise what a prick you’ve been.” He spat out before ushering Marion inside and shutting the door behind them. He had a cut lip but other than that he was fine. He looked around at the others before walking past them and up the stairs to his room to begin packing his things.
Later that night, Sirius was still alone in his room. His things were piled on the bed and he was lying on the floor, repeatedly throwing a tennis ball at the wall, and catching it when it came back. It was dark and he had been doing it for at least an hour but he had to do something to get his mind off of Kyle and what he had done to Marion. He wasn’t really sure why he had cared so much. It must’ve been because he had known what Kyle had done was disgusting and wrong. And Marion was his friend, well, she was under it all. Plus he didn’t think he would wish what Kyle had done on his worst enemy come to that. He was a lot more decent that anyone gave him credit for. Maybe that was it. He was trying to prove himself to be a good guy. Well whether it had worked or not, no one had come up and spoken to him since it had happened. Then there was a soft knock on the door. At first, Sirius thought he had imagined it, until he heard it again. He reluctantly raised himself and sighed in annoyance as he opened it, expecting to see James, but the person in front of him was shorter, prettier, and a lot sadder looking than his friend. Marion looked slightly hurt by Sirius’s reaction to her.
“Oh.” He said, kicking himself internally. “Sorry, I was expecting James.”
“Oh.” Marion said, lulling them quietly into a full awkward silence. She looked around for something to pull them out of it, and then remembered why she was here in the first place.
“I just came up to say thanks, you know, for defending me. He didn’t hurt you too much did he?” she asked with concern, looking at his lip which had since swollen and stopped bleeding. Sirius shook his head.
“I’m fine.” He managed, “You deserved to be defended, he was a real dick.”
Marion smiled gratefully. Sirius was glad to see she actually did have feelings. She had spent a hefty amount of time dedicated to making him look miserable in front of people, that he had assumed that she was indestructible.
“Well, thanks.” She said again, then she took Sirius by surprise. She leaned up and kissed him gently on the cheek. Slowly and softly. His eyes widened and he didn’t try to hide his surprise as she walked away. He backed into the room again, feeling even more confused now then he had before. He lifted a hand to his cheek, succeeding only in a visual replay in his mind of what had just happened.
What the hell he thought.
The next day, they put all their things in the living room and Mischa, Ryan and Val were doing apparation trips with the bags as the others waited in the kitchen. Persephone stood with the Potters’ and said nothing while the marauders stood with Johnny and Marion and Lily stood by the door. They were speaking in the lowest voices possible.
“You what!?” Lily exclaimed quietly.
“I kissed him on the cheek Lils, just to say thanks. It’s not a big deal.” Marion returned.
“It may not be a big deal for you or for me but to Sirius that could mean anything. And giving the upper hand to him isn’t a good idea, Mari.” Lily protested.
“What upper hand?” Marion asked, “I don’t fancy him and he knows that so we shouldn’t have a problem. He’s a better guy then you give him credit for, Lils. Both of them are.” Lily was stunned into silence. She hadn’t seen that coming. She was thinking of something to say when Val, Mischa and Ryan came in, saving her the trouble. The visitors all lined up along the wall of the living room. Persephone, and Mr and Mrs Potter disappeared immediately without good byes while the others were hugging their friends and family. Val grabbed Marion and Lily and stood with them in the centre of the room. Mischa took Johnny and Ryan took Sirius and James. That strange squeezing feeling gripped the teens as they disappeared into the darkness. With a pop they reappeared, Johnny, Marion and Lily at Preston House to be met by Persephone, and James and Sirius at Potter Manor where Mr. and Mrs. Potter were waiting for them. Persephone approached Lily and her children, dusting them off.
“I wish that Val would be more careful.” She muttered as she shook at the teen’s robes, “That travel dust always gets on my nice, clean carpet.” Marion swatted her mother’s hand away.
“It’s dads carpet.” She said fiercely before leading her brother and friend up the stairs.
Back at Potter Manor, James and Sirius were sitting in silence in James’ room. It was dark but neither could be bothered to turn on the light. Typical boys. Neither was speaking until James broke the silence.
“Hey, Padfoot.” He called, Sirius only turning his head lazily towards his friend.
“Why did you really go for Kyle like that? Seriously.” He asked.
“Because he’s a total tosser and he had it coming.” Sirius answered simply. James raised his eyebrows. Sirius found his silence suspect.
“What? Why did you think it was?” he questioned. James shrugged.
“I dunno.” He lied, although both knew what he had been thinking. Sirius carried on looking straight ahead of his as the silence swooped over them again.
