“JAMES!!!” is the noise we woke up to the next morning, “JAMES WAKE UP MAN WE GOT BIG PROBLEMS.” Sirius yelled.
James jumps out of bed and puts on pants. He finds his mirror and says, “What’s wrong?”
“Is Lily there too?” he asks. I grab a T-shirt of James’ to throw on and sit on the bed next to him.
“Sirius what is wrong?” I reply concerned.
“It’s Tina. She needs us guys. Tony cheated on her at the party last night. She saw him after you guys put me to bed. She stuck a note on Monique’s desk to find her in the room of requirement when she woke up. Can we bring her to your dorm to take care of her?”
“Yes of course” I reply. I run to my room and get changed and James does the same.
“Oh James, she has got to be devastated.”
“I know sweetie we will help her were a family anymore remember?”
“Yea” I reply. Over the year we figured out that the two groups (besides those of us who were dating) had become a little family, Tony was a bit on the outs always and now we knew why... We all protected and cared for one another through everything.
I rush forward and open the portrait. Sirius is carrying Tina like a baby and you could see she was a mess. Her hair stood on end; she had eaten and made a mess all over herself, and her eyes were swollen and red from crying.
“Sirius put her in my bed” I say. We follow him and he places her in the bed and tucks her in. He then backs up and squeezes Monique’s hand. I rush over and hug her.
She sobs, “How could he Lily? How could he do that to me?”
“I don’t know sweetie I am so sorry. What can I do?”
“I don’t know” she cries.
“Boys, I believe we have some business to attend to. Tina we will be back soon.” Sirius says like a commanding general and they leave the room.
“What’s the plan?” James says.
Sirius brings out a bottle of veritaserum, “Were going to find out why that idiot hurt our sister. That is what we are going to do.”
We run to Gryffindor tower. Tony is sitting on the couch facing the fire as if nothing was wrong.
“Hey Tony the boys and I want to have a little chat with you.” Sirius said.
“What’s up?” he replies.
“What do you remember about last night?” Remus questions.
“What do you mean?”
“He means can you tell us everything you did last night.”
“I don’t really remember” he replies, but shifts uncomfortably.
“Sure you don’t” Peter says.
“Boys” Sirius said and with that James, Remus and Peter pin down Tony. Sirius pours the truth medicine in his mouth and the boys tie him to the chair.
“Is your name Tony?” James asks
“Tony what did you do last night?” Sirius asks.
“I went to the party. I had a lot of firewhisky, I lost count. Tina and I haven’t been getting along for a while. When she saw me drunk she refused to kiss me. I got mad and found Mary Tarten in the corner. We shagged in the common room last night.” He droned on.
“Have you ever even loved Tina?” Remus asked menacingly.
“I used to. I think I want to date Mary now though.”
With that comment Sirius punched him across the face, “You know I really hate it when people hurt my family, especially one of my sisters!”
Sirius gives a few more good swings before James pulls him back and says, “Sirius, you can’t kill him. You will be expelled.”
“Dammit” he growls, “he deserves it though.”
“I agree” Remus replies, “but I like having you around more mate.”
Sirius takes out a camera and takes a picture of him. Remus puts a memory charm on him to make him forget who hit him and they leave him there bleeding a bit and unconscious.
Tina is crying and Monique is attempting to hold her and comfort her.
“I loved him. How could I love such a jerk!” Tina yells.
“Sweetie, none of knew he was capable of that” I try to comfort her.
“If we did we would have never ever let you go out with him” Natalie assured her.
“I know” she sniffed, “I just don’t know what to do next.”
“Why don’t you get some sleep hunny? We will check on you every once in a while.” I said.
“I am going to stay with her guys.” Monique insists.
“Ok” Nat and I respond and we go into the common room. The boys are all sitting there with their heads in their hands.
“Where did you guys go?” Natalie asks.
“To take care of some business” responds Sirius.
“Which was?” I question.
James took Sirius’ camera and hands it to us.
“Oh goodness!” I exclaim, “You guys could get expelled!!!”
“Nope I put a memory charm on him Lils” Remus replies sounding frustrated.
“Do I even want to know what he did?” Natalie said while sitting next to Remus.
“Well let’s just put it this way. If Tina thinks he cheated by just kissing she certainly missed the grand finale.” James replied while pulling me onto his lap.
“James what do you mean?” I ask.
“He shagged Mary Tarten” he said wearily.
“He shagged Mary the Tart last night??!!!” I replied in an angry whisper.
“Yea. He also said his isn’t sure if he loves Tina anymore.” Sirius said while clenching his fists.
“Should we tell her?” Natalie asks.
“Yes, maybe the amount of cheating he did will help her get over him…” I reply. We walked in to see Monique and Tina whispering to each other.
“Tina we need to tell you something.” Natalie says.
We explain the story and she yells, “I ALMOST SHAGGED THAT ASSHOLE AND HE SAYS HE LIKES HER BETTER EVEN THOUGH SHE IS A TOTAL TART. HE CAN GO DIE FOR ALL I CARE!”
I hand her the camera and told her about how the boys found out, “JAMES!” she yelled.
He pops in the room, “Yea?”
“WHY DIDN’T YOU LET SIRIUS KILL HIM!!!”
“Because if he was gone and Tony was still in school wouldn’t you miss him? Even a little?”
“Oh right” she said in a huff, “Can you guys leave me alone? I want to go back to sleep.”
We all stepped out besides Monique again. A little while later…
“Sirius hunny we need to talk. James can we borrow your room?”
“Mo what’s going on? Is Tina ok?”
“She will be. I just wanted you to be the first to know about the change in the plan…” she said while looking at her feet.
“Please don’t hate me and please try to hear me out.”
“Mo I could never hate you.”
“We will see… umm…well you know how even though we have always been the Fab Four I have always been closest to Tina?”
“Well, she really needs me right now. She is devastated and doesn’t want to live here anymore. We are both frightened to be here because we are muggleborn and will be targets for Voldemort’s followers.”
“I will protect you Mo. He won’t get near you.”
“Sirius there is no one to protect Tina.”
“I can protect you all.” I pleaded.
“No not if you to keep yourself safe as well. Tina and I are going to move to Salem just until the war is over. We have been debating doing this for a while because we are really scared Sirius. I can write to you everyday if you want to stay together, but that is only up to you. I will miss you terribly Sirius, but I have to go.”
“No, Mo you can’t leave me here” he pleaded.
“Sirius I love you. I will always love you, but you know me when I make a decision and I stick to it. Tina and I will be moving to Salem the night of Graduation. I love you. I’m sorry. I do hope you forgive me and can understand one day” she kissed me and walked back into Lily’s room. I fell to my knees on the floor. The girl I love is leaving me. What do I do now?
I watch Monique walk straight back to my room and I can hear her crying her eyes out now. What in the world is going on? Sirius wasn’t following her.
“Sirius” I say to James and everyone who was in the common room ran to James’ room.
We found Sirius on the floor leaned against a wall with his head in his hands. “Sirius what is going on?” James asked.
“She’s leaving. They’re both leaving.”
“What do you mean?” Natalie said with a panicked voice.
“I mean they are moving. They are going to Salem after Graduation. She’s leaving me.” Sirius said with the most depressed voice I have ever heard.
What in the world is going on?!
