"Okay so... Let me get this straight. Remus, Maggie, and Isabella were attacked by the whomping willow. Remus had to go to St. Mungos for three days and Izzy had to go back home. Right Remus?"
"Lea! Don't interrupt them!"
"OI! Maggie!! Get your tongue out of Remus' mouth and answer me!"
Remus waved a hand in their general direction without stopping snogging. Sirius and Maylea started laughing.
Sirius, Maylea, Remus, Maggie, and Peter were all sitting in the Gryffindor common room waiting for James and Lily to come back from their meeting with McGonnagall. Something told Sirius that some first year went blabbing about their little 'time alone' in the dorms.
"Peter! Why are you so quiet?" Sirius asked, subconsciously putting his arm around Maylea, "Worried much?"
"I... I'm just. I might like this girl." he muttered, "I'm tired of being the only guy without a girlfriend. I mean when you guys do that..." he pointed to the snogging couple, "It gets kinda awkward..."
Sirius felt a pang of guilt a this, he couldn't help but feel that he makes him feel the most awkward. After all, the past six years he's had... How many girlfriends?
"Oooh!" Maylea said shifting in Sirius' lap, "Who's the girl?!"
Peter shifted uncomfortably in his seat, "Flora..." he muttered softly.
The sound that Sirius' girlfriend made wasn't human.
"YOU FANCY FLORA?!" she jumped off of Sirius' lap and grabbed Peter, "Oh my gosh!! I'm so setting you two up!! It'll be amazing! You guys will make a fantastic couple!!" she spun a terrified looking Peter around in circles, singing, "Peter's gonna get laaaaid! Peter's gonna get laaaaid!!"
"What was that, Miss Lavone?"
Maylea stopped in her tracks, her arms raised high and her eyes widened. Sirius was doing everything he could to keep from laughing. Maylea turned her head slowly to look back at professor McGonnagall. She smiled,
"Hello, Minerva..." Maylea said sweetly.
McGonnagall's nostrils flared, and Sirius burst out laughing. Peter gave a squeak and ran up to the dorms.
"What are you even doing in the Gryffindor common room?!" McGonnagall asked Maylea.
Maylea's arms flung down to her sides, "On a totally unrelated subject. You might want to look to your right." she smiled mischievously.
"MR. LUPIN!" McGonnagall shrieked. Remus and Maggie pulled apart, their faces burning red. "A prefect!!" McGonnagall continued, "Of all people! Detention! All four of you!"
"What?!" Sirius yelled, "What did I do?!"
"You laughed." she stormed out of the common room.
Maylea flopped back down on the couch next to Sirius. Muttering something along the lines of a stupid arse.
Very quietly, but anything but subtle James flopped down on the couch next to them.
"Hello mr. grumpy gills." Sirius smirked.
"Ha ha." James rolled his eyes.
"What happened Jamesie?" Maylea asked cuddling into Sirius' arms.
"Well, Sirius? Do you remember how we hexed snivilus a few weeks ago?"
Sirius thought for a moment. "Which time?"
"Exactly. He went blabbing. And she just HAD to have Lily in the same room when she was lecturing me. So, whatever I thought I had before is gone. I have to start from the beginning."
"No!!" Maylea pouted, "She gives me detention and purposely breaks up my favorite couple!?" she sighed and fell into Sirius' lap, "Other than us of course."
"hey... Lea?" Sirius started, "I have to-"
She sat up and looked over the back of the couch.
"Lea! Back in Ravenclaw! Now!"
"Fine!! Bye Sirius..."
Sirius gave her a quick kiss on her lips. And she walked out of the common room. He fell over on the couch and sighed.
"What were you gonna tell her Padfoot?"
He sat up and looked at Remus, "nothing... Go back to your snogging." he snapped.
Remus thew Sirius a wary look before Maggie pounced on him again.

Sirius walked into the dorms to find James laying on his bed. He was zoned out staring at the top of his four-post humming the song "Hey Jude" softly.
"James?" he said again.
"Hey Jude, don't make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better."
"James. I know you can hear me. What's wrong?"
"I wish she knew, Sirius. I wish she knew..." he muttered into the air.
"Knew what, exactly?" Sirius asked sitting on James' bed.
"I wish she knew." he bit his lip to keep from crying, "I really wish she knew how much she means to me. She keeps thinking I just want to use her. That I treat her like ever other girl I've ever dated. She's not like that. I wish she knew how perfect I think she is."
"Evans? Lordy, James, why are you suddenly bothered by this?"
He let his head fall back down on the bed and resumed humming.
"Blimey James." Sirius sighed.
"Remember to let her into your heart, then you can start to make it better."
"At least stop singing muggle songs!!"
"Okay..." Sirius interrupted, "Why is this suddenly bothering you now?"
James sat up, grabbed his pillow and hugged it, "I overheard her telling Alice that she'd never go out with me and she couldn't believe that I convinced her to snog me. And I quote, 'He hasn't changed a bit. He's still a no-good bullying toerag. And I can't believe I snogged him.' Am I that bad?"
"Just get it into your thick head, that girls are confusing. She'll come around when she realizes that she can't resist you." Sirius smiled.
"Yes. And on that day You-Know-Who will give Dumbledore a hug." James said, falling limp on the bed.
"How about you write her a letter?"
"What am I? 92?"
"Just fix this. It hurts my eyes to see a grown woman cry."
James sat up fast, "Lily was crying?!"
"What? No. I was talking about you."
James fell back over.
"KIDDING!!" Sirius shouted shaking James.
"Sirius?" James asked, his voice a little muffled from the mattress, "Hurry up and tell Maylea you love her. "
Sirius was taken aback, "How did you-"
"Sirius... You're like the brother I've never had. You really think you can hide stuff that easily from me?"
Sirius smiled widely, "Thanks, man."
"Hey? Brethren?" James started once more, "Will you do my charms essay for me?"
Sirius smiled once again before throwing a pillow at James' smirking face.
