Chapter Six

 

James’s POV

 

“You what?!” I exclaimed as Sirius furiously paced the room.

 

I don’t know what his deal is. Can he not see my excitement? This is good! Right?

 

“i kissed her!” he repeated, obviously frustrated. 

 

“Well, why aren’t you with her then?!” I asked incredulously.

 

I still don’t know why he’s mad.

 

“Because!” his pacing stopped at his sudden outburst.

 

“Sirius, mate, you kissed her! You didn’t throttle her! Unless you did, and that’s your business, but it’s still kinky and kind of gross and I didn’t have Rayne tagged as one of those girls...” Remus and Sirius’s mutual glares stopped my babbling.

 

“Well,” I started again, trying to reason. “did she respond?”

 

He mumbled something incoherent.

 

Well?” I pressed.

 

Yes she bleeding well responded!” he grumbled. “That’s the problem!”

 

I stared at him, dumbfounded. 

 

Scrutinizing Rayne’s usual punching points, I stated, “She didn’t punch you.”

 

“Worse.” his frantic pacing quickened.

 

I raised my eyebrows at him.

 

“She kissed me back.

 

“Then why the bleeding hell aren’t you with her?! And why are you in this state?!” I demanded, looking to Remus, who was sitting quietly, and Peter, who looked as bewildered as I and maybe even moreso.

 

“She was upset. She’d been crying, and, and, I- ugh!- I’m so stupid!” 

 

“What does it matter she was upset?” Peter asked bluntly.

 

I sighed loudly, completely exasperated at the situation. 

 

Remus spoke up, “Sirius feels that he took advantage of her. I would advise you to talk to her and work this out before it’s too late.” 

 

“I can’t! She’d be pissed! I’ve ruined everything!” he moaned. “Someone distract me before I do something stupid!” he commanded. “Prongs! What happened between you and Evans during Truth or Dare?”

**Flashback**

 

“Nice space.” Lily noted as she looked around Rayne’s closet. “Oh that’s where my blue dress went!” 

 

I ran my hand through my hair before responding. “Yeah, all of them are pretty much like this. Dad’s family went a little overboard. Though, it was originally intended for a bigger family.”

 

“i can see that.” she laughed. “So what do you usually do during these things?” she asked me, sitting against a wall. 

 

“Dunno. We usually only have Rayne with us, and sometimes Tonks plays too, but more often than not, we don’t have enough girls. I was surprised that Padfoot even did this, but at the same time, eh, not really. This is Sirius, after all.” 

 

“So Sirius only did this because I’m here.” she said this as a statement instead of a question.

 

“Pretty much, yeah. He probably didn’t want someone in the room when he asks someone something or chooses Truth.” I nudged her playfully.

 

“Does he do that? Choose Truth, I mean.”

 

“You have to every now and then, otherwise people can only choose Dare and you never learn anything about them. He only chooses Truth when he has to, but there’s almost nothing he’s not already told me, so I’m not worried.”

 

“I see. Oh, there’s my green sweater! I swear, if Rayne borrows any more clothes and forgets to give them back, I’ll be running around in my knickers!” she blushed at her comment, forgetting that I was the one to whom she was speaking. 

“Sorry.” she apologized. “What do you want to do?”

 

‘Hold you in my arms and be with you forever’ I thought. ‘No, James! You can’t say that!’

 

Instead, I shrugged.

 

“You really do live under a rock, don’t you, Evans?” I smirked. “Would you like me to show you?” 

 

“Why don’t you just tell me?” she retorted and rolled her eyes.

 

“They snog, Evans. Among.. other.. things. Godric knows what Sirius or Rayne would do.” 

 

She snickered. “Especially together.” 

 

“Rayne is rubbing off on you.” I teased, smirk changing to a grin.

 

She grinned back mischievously. “So do you have to snog?”

 

“Nah, you don’t. People usually do cause closets are generally smaller and they’re typically inebriated.”

 

30 seconds to go. 

 

“I think we can go out now.” I said. 

 

“Okay.”

 

I turned to open the door. 

 

“Wait.” she stopped me. “You’re not so bad sometimes, you know, Potter.” she smirked.

 

I laughed. “Neither are you.” 

 

She reached up and placed a warm kiss on my cheek. I swear, my entire face started glowing.

 

Opening the door, she looked over her shoulder and called, “Don’t let that go to your head, Potter!” with a grin.

 

I followed her out, dazed, and ran my hand through my hair again.

 

**End Flashback**

“Nothing, really.” I told him. 

 

 

“Aw, mate. That sucks.” Sirius said apologetically.

 

 

Lily’s POV

 

“He what?!” I exclaimed.

 

“He walked out! Just like that! a stuttered apology and bam! Gone! Well, you know what, Sirius?! I don’t want your bleeding apology! I want you to get you sodding arse in here, and snog the bleeding hell out of me!” Rayne fumed.

 

“Why don’t you just talk to him?” I suggested, trying to be reasonable.

 

“Because he bleeding walked out! No, ran like a bloody coward is more the like!” 

 

“So tell him that he hurt your feelings by walking out!” 

 

“Hurt my feelings?! This is Sirius Black we’re talking about, here! He doesn’t care about my feelings!”

 

“He seemed to earlier.” I persisted.

 

“That was earlier! I need a distraction. What did you and James do during Truth or Dare?”

**Flashback**

 

“Nice space.” I commented, taking in the area. “Oh that’s where my blue dress went!” 

 

He ran his hand through his hair. “Yeah, they’re pretty much all like that. My  dad’s family went a little overboard. Though, it was originally intended for a bigger family.”

 

“i can see that.” I laughed. “So what do you usually do during these things?” I asked him, sitting down. 

 

He sat down next to me. “Dunno. We usually only have Rayne with us, and sometimes Tonks plays too, but more often than not, we don’t have enough girls. I was surprised that Padfoot even did this, but at the same time, eh, not really. This is Sirius, after all.” 

 

I tried to pay attention, but my gaze kept wandering back to his face. His jaw, his straight nose, his sparkling eyes, his soft lips as he talked.. Oh what I would love to do with those lips... Lily! No! Stop it!

 

“So Sirius only did this because I’m here.” I said slowly, realizing that he had stopped talking.

 

I tuned him out again as he said something animatedly and ran his hand through his hair. I startled as he nudged me and racked my brain for the most relevant response.

 

“Does he do that? Choose Truth, I mean.”

 

I half paid attention to what he said, but while I listened, I studied the shape of the muscles in his arm. He’s seriously tan, and seriously toned. I may not appreciate Quidditch much, but Merlin do I appreciate what it did to James. I mean- Potter.

 

“You have to every now and then,” he was saying. “otherwise people can only choose Dare and you never learn anything about them. He only chooses Truth when he has to, but there’s almost nothing he’s not already told me, so I’m not worried.”

 

“I see. Oh, there’s my green sweater! I swear, if Rayne borrows any more clothes and forgets to give them back, I’ll be running around in my knickers!” My face flushed as my mouth ran away with me.

“Sorry.” I apologized. “What do you want to do?”

 

He seemed distracted by something my question triggered and I bit back the urge to snicker.

 

He shrugged.

 

“Well what do you usually do?” I pressed.

 

“You really do live under a rock, don’t you, Evans?” he smirked. “Would you like me to show you?” 

 

Resisting the urge to jump him, I chose to roll my eyes and retort, “Why don’t you just tell me?”

 

“They snog, Evans. Among.. other.. things. Godric knows what Sirius or Rayne would do.” 

 

I snickered. “Especially together.” 

 

“Rayne is rubbing off on you.”  he teased, smirk changing to the lopsided grin that I love- I mean hate, yes, hate.

 

We bantered for a few minutes more.

 

Right as he was going to open the door, I stopped him.

 

“You’re not so bad sometimes you know, Potter.” I teased, taking his place at the door and turning around to face him. I realized too late just how close that would place us.

 

“Neither are you.” he chuckled, taking a step closer.

 

Ignoring the desire to lock my hands in his hair and hold him captive, I instead reached up and kissed his cheek, my front brushing against his chest ever so slightly. A warm, tingling feeling touched my lips and fluttered through my stomach. Kind of like, fireworks. Wow. That’s way too cliché. This needs to stop. 

 

I opened the door and looked over my shoulder as I walked.

 

“Don’t let that go to your head, Potter!” I called, smirking.

 

He ran his hand through his hair, dazed.

 

**End Flashback**

“Nothing, really.” I lied. “Want to get some snacks? We can camp out here. Mrs. Potter said I could stay the night.” 

 

“Sure!” she agreed, enthused.

 

Remus’s POV

‘These people need to get their shit together.’ I thought, shaking my head and resuming my book.
