“Shut up Sev! You have no right to tell me what I can or can’t do! Or who I can or can’t be friends with” I yelled as loud as I possibly could at him; despite him being only a metre away.
“Lily I’m telling you the guy is dangerous! Remus Lupin is trouble! He’s a monster and shouldn’t even be in this school!” The greasy haired boy hissed back.
“Oh and you and your pathetic ‘death eater’ friends aren’t?! Your lot are the monsters! You made a choice Sev! You chose them over me when you called me mudblood! I don’t care what you think about Remus or me! He’s my friend and I’ll support him no matter what. Good-bye Severus!” I screamed turning and storming off along the fourth floor corridor; in the opposite direction.
How dare him! How dare he tell me who I can and can’t be friends with! So what if Remus is... has a little problem? He’s a sweet guy; not monstrous at all. We’ve been prefects together and studied together. Merlin I was shocked when Potter got the head boy position over him.
Speaking of Potter....
“Hello Evans! What’s up? You look troubled. Wanna talk to old Prongs about it?”
“Haven’t you got head duties to do?” I huffed.
“I’ve already sorted out the prefect’s time-tables; they’re on the desk in the heads room. See told you I can follow orders. So what do you say friend? Talk to Prongs” He said with ease taking my bag from my shoulder.
I’ll admit I’m still getting used to this new found ‘friendship’ with Potter. As soon as we got on the train for our seventh and final year at Hogwarts he bombarded me claiming we should start over. I being the forgiving and kind soul I am I grudgingly agreed; since Remus had to but in with his opinion that it was a good idea.
“I’d rather just go back to the dorm and just..... Shower”
“Shower? Ha” He laughed, glasses almost falling off his nose.
“Don’t you shower when you’re stressed out? That’s what I do”
“Na I usually just hit Sirius that seems to make me feel better.”
An image of scrawny haired Potter thumping his much larger friend fills my head and I laugh out loud. He smiles that large grin of his.
“See Evans I knew I could make you laugh. Now if you wanna go back to the dorms let’s.... but you still need to tell me what’s wrong or I’ll set Remus on you....” He smirked as we walked.
I stopped in my tracks. Did he know about Remus’s.... condition? He must, I mean they’re best mates and share a dorm. I mean I always expected something was wrong with Remus being away every month and I’ll admit it even crossed my mind that he might be a... a...
“What....what’s that supposed to mean?” I stuttered.
“Well when ever Remus says something you tend to agree with him, take at the start of the year for example when you agreed to be friends with me because he said it was a good idea” He explained.
“Oh....” I sighed in relief.
“What did you think I meant?” He quizzed.
“It’s just.... Severus told me something earlier that made me real mad. He told me something to do with Remus.” I admitted.
“What did Snivellus fucking say?” He growled angrily, ears beginning to redden in rage. I took a few steps back.
“Potter you’re starting to scare me a little...”
“What did he fucking say Lily!?” He growled louder stepping towards me.
“James....” I whispered
“What’s going on Prongs?” Asked a pair of voices from behind me.
Never before would I be so grateful to hear the voices of Sirius Black and Remus Lupin.
“Snivellus told! That’s what!”
“Told her...” Remus uttered and if I didn’t see it I wouldn’t have believed it; he turned even paler.
“Remus...” I started
“No... No Lily its okay... I understand. I’m... I’m too dangerous for you to hang around with” He hung his head in shame and turned in the other direction.
“Remus that’s not what I was going to say. I don’t care if you or anyone else thinks you’re dangerous. I don’t care if it’s true you’re a werewolf. I’m your friend and I love you no matter what” I cried, rushing over to him and embracing him.
Sirius and Potter stood there in shock.
“Can I have a hug too?” Sirius asked quietly. “I saved you from crazy mad Prongs too”
“No Sirius! And you didn’t save me, because I didn’t need saving!” I laughed letting go of Remus.
“I did so! Look at him, he’s mad as a hatter that one” he replied pointing his thumb at James. James glared at him.
“You would have got mad too Sirius!”
“Your right, let’s go find our old pal Snivellus and teach him a lesson shall we?” He growled rolling up his sleeves.
“Or we could just go tell Dumbledore....” Remus called out.
“Of course Remus has to become the voice of reason”
