Background: Font color:
“I’ll see you around Cora Rose.”
“Hullo, I haven’t seen you in far too long, come back to my compartment after the meeting with me, okay?”
“Yep, I’ll see you in a few minutes then?”
“Well” Lily begins as we walk into her compartment. She was interrupted by the angry, yet humorous tones of James Potter, who must have just lost a game of exploding snaps with a familiarly handsome boy, which had tripped me earlier. “You cheated, probably….” Began James, but what Sirius did to cheat, the world will never know. The biggest, goofiest smile broke on to his face as he stared at Lily. Lily didn’t return the smile but looked at the other girl in the compartment, “Hi, Tonks!” Lily said, to younger looking girl “This is Cora.”
Cora smiled and waved friendly at the Gryffindor.
“Hi, I tripped you earlier!” Sirius greeted me all too proudly.
“I remember” I say in a mocking tone.
“Sirius” He said.
“I know I was there.” I respond stupidly.
“No, that’s my name” he clarifies.
“Siriusly” I respond, figuring this would annoy him, he deserved it after tripping.
“As they get, but not literally of course” He smiles
Damn, I mean really, that boy has a wicked smile, and that black t-shirt, it was so simple but outlined his abs. ‘oh,’ I melt inside my head ‘look at those abs.’ His messy, rich, ebony hair. It looks as soft as phoenix feathers. His eyes are a light, almost blue, almost clear- grey color. He notices what I am doing and smiles cockily. I think I blushed.
I turn quickly to find out what Lily did this summer. During her tale telling, Remus walks in and sits down next to the girl Lily addressed as Tonks.
After connecting the dots I quickly realize the annoyed looks Lily gave James about twice every minute.
“Well, I really must be going, but I am looking forward to the feast I” I say mischievously.
“I’ll come with you” Lily says not trying to hide the fact that would really rather not be here. She grabs her Hogwarts robes from her
“Bye Ms. Rose, I’ll see you around” Said a very kind, gentle, yet deep voice.
“Yes, you will, Mr. Black and it’s Rosewell.” I say staring, perhaps a little too obviously into his dreamy grey eyes. I quickly turn around, and exit the compartment with Lily. I realize only after I’m in the hallway that my heart is beating extremely fast.
Lily smiles knowingly. I feel me face become red, I guess by her widening smile that my face was now the color of her very pretty deep red hair.
“What?” I say trying to regain some dignity, and failing horribly.
“I have never seen you act that way around anyone, even when you dated and Merlin-knows-what-else with a guy.” She says slyly in hushed tone.
Thankfully we were out of ear shot from the compartment. “He got my name wrong! I don’t think I could ever date anyone, so... so I don’t know- annoying.” While I say this, all I can think about are his dreamy grey eyes. Bad Cora! I chastised myself inside my head- I have officially gone mental, for like the tenth time this week.
“Sure Mrs. Black.” She says playfully
“Well, I guess your right Mrs. Potter.” I say. I had clearly hit a nerve; Lily was now frowning and looking furious.
“You have no idea what that boy has done to me over the past years, he has asked me out, told me he loves me, said the most inappropriate, embarrassing, arrogant things to me. I only sat there because of Tonks. She fancies Remus, who always sits with the other marauders.” She quietly exploded, so she didn’t get any attention from the other Hogwarts express passengers.
“Your right, I didn’t know. Seriously (I smirk at the use of the word) it couldn’t have been that bad, to know that someone wanted you so much. No one has ever looked at me the way James looks at you- even when I was off doing Merlin-knows-what!” I say at the same volume.
“I don’t even think he is serious (we both smirk here), he just does it to annoy me, or something.” Lily began. “I guess you didn’t see the look on Sirius’ face.”
I blush again at the last part, and quickly choose to ignore it. “I don’t think so, Lily.”
“Let’s make a pact, NO MORE BOYS, for the rest of the year.” Lily says after a longish but not awkward silence.
“I think that’s exactly what we need, besides it’s NEWTs this year (and for the same reason the school will never know my wicked quidditch skills) they’re just a distraction.” I say deadpan.
I didn’t really want to change the subject, but I tell her anyway.
“Mum and I spend most of the time up in Monte Carlo, at my grandma’s home. I had load of fun, met all different types of witches and wizard, and one unparticular wizard, which I enjoyed doing Merlin-knows-what with.” I begin to tell her, as we both arrive at the compartment that is seating all of my favorite ravenclaws, wearing mischievous smiles.
We walk in, once again in the middle of an exploding snaps game. Alice is practical on Frank’s lap while he plays Matt. Christina and Molly are both pouring over a copy of Witch Weekly. No one seems too surprised by my or Lily presents, but they all smile at us as we take our seats.
“So, go on.” Lily says
“Right, he was a fun bloke, nothing serious. While I was there I went to one of 'The Who’s' concert!” I respond excitedly. I continue with my mildly interesting summer tales to Lily.
15 minutes later, I grab my Hogwarts' uniform and ask Molly and Alice if they want to come with us to change. They grab their robes and we turn down the offers (Alice hestitantly) made by Frank and Matt to help us with our changing. We do get a few good laughs out of it, but Frank still looks really disappointed, which makes me laugh harder
The rest of the train ride goes by filled with tales of summer adventures and hope for the coming year at Hogwarts-filled in with a few jokes (Most naughty, but that goes without saying ;).
Sirius smirks as he sit in the same carriage as Lily and I, in the seat directly to my right. James, practically falls over me as he excitedly tries to sit beside Lily, by not-all-to-gently pushing her over, causing my robes and skirts to fly up for a moments as I land on Sirius’ lap.-Just my luck.
James looks at me through eyes of pure disgust- way to make a girl feel welcomed. While Sirius and Remus are holding back laughs.
“Did I tell you?” Lily interrupts my day dream. “I got a dog, it’s a terrier. My sister despises it. She wanted one, but since she almost got expelled from her colleague, and is still living with Mum and Dad she, for some strange reason, of which i can not understand,didn’t get one. She’ll probably torture my poor dog.” She adds the last part as if a horrible after thought.
“That’s horrible!” I remark as we make are way off the carriage.
“You get use to her.” Lily says in a disgusted tone of voice.
“She can’t be that horrid, after all she’s related to you.”
“Petunia is just horrid to me, and anything magic.” She smirks. "we were close before i got my letter to Hogwarts, i miss it back than some times."
I wasn’t sure what to say next, but it didn’t matter because my amazing ravenclaw nerds were at my rescue.
“Sorry Lils, but I got to go. We’ll meet up soon?”
“Yep!” She says as she goes over to Tonks.
“Hey Christina” I say as I tackle me friend to the ground in a bear hug.”
“Get of me.” She yells playfully.
Molly walks up to me and locks elbows, I do the same with Chris. Before you know it we all are skipping merrily to the ravenclaw table singing a friendly tune from the muggle movie The Wizard of OZ.
Disclaimer: To my great saddness, i have a not-so-shocking anouncement: I am not J.K. Rowling and there for own nothing. :( Tear drop.
This chapter was just my quirky way of kicking of a few relationships. I really hope you liked it. Another chapter should be coming your way, so stay tuned. By the way this isn't going to be all about relationships, reality is about to hit hard. I know I got Tonks' age wrong, but it's for the greater good of the chapter. Sorry if there are any confusing grammar mistakes, I make them a lot. :(
So, what did you think? Any ideas? What would like to see? Tell me I absolutely would love to hear from you- good or bad- just click the little review button, thank you some much. i love you guys :)
