“Sienna, we need to talk,” I tell her, looking her straight in the eyes.
She was waiting for me again when I got home, which I had surprisingly gotten off early since Carolyn volunteered to do our paperwork. Sienna attempts to seduce me from across my kitchen table as I try to eat my dinner in peace. I wish she could get it through her mind that I broke up with her a couple of weeks ago. But it was my mistake not asking for my flat key back.
“About what?” Sienna coos at me, fluttering her eyelashes at me.
I roll my eyes and toss my fork onto the empty plate. “You know exactly what, Sienna. I broke up with you weeks ago. You can’t keep coming over.”
“But I know you didn’t mean it, babe,” Sienna says with a smile. “I forgive you for it.”
I hold my hand out to Sienna. “Key.”
“What?” Sienna questions, raising an eyebrow.
“My flat key,” I clarify. “Give it back.”
Sienna furrows her eyebrows. “Babe, we’re still together.”
“No. We really aren’t.”
Sienna drops her jaw a little. “Scorpius.”
“I told you straightforwardly weeks ago that we were over,” I remind her, still keeping my hand out for the key. “Now give me back the key.”
Sienna gets up out of her chair and stares at me. “Can’t we at least talk about this, Scorpie?”
I wince. I’ve always hated that pet name.
“We talked two weeks ago,” I tell her as I get out of my chair and grab my plate. “What else is there to talk about?”
Sienna stomps behind me as I head over to the kitchen to wash my dishes. I lean over the sink to clean the dishes that had accumulated over the busy days I’ve been having at the Auror’s Headquarters. There is total and complete silence until I hear Sienna tapping her heels on the tile floor of the kitchen. I know she wants an explanation and I gave her one when I broke up with her, but she obviously didn’t listen because she’s still around.
“Why?” Sienna asks with my back towards her.
“You know how things have been between us for the past few months, Sienna,” I tell her, rinsing off a plate in the sink. “It was gonna happen eventually and so I did it.”
“It’s because of Carolyn, isn’t it?” Sienna questions severely. “I knew you two were doing something behind my back because of all those late hours!”
I furrow my eyebrows and turn to face Sienna. “Me and Carolyn? Are you crazy?! We’re partners, Sienna! That’s it!”
“She’s a beautiful girl, Scorpie! And you obviously spend a lot of time together!” Sienna tells me. “And I know you know who her roommate is!”
I furrow my eyebrows deeper. “You are not gonna bring that up.”
“Have you been ‘working late’ over at her apartment, talking up her roommate? Is that what’s been going on?!” Sienna shouts at me, her dark brown hair flying wildly.
I pinch the bridge of my nose. “I have never been over to her apartment, Sienna. I swear to Merlin, I haven’t. Nothing went on with Carolyn and especially her roommate. Don’t even bring that up ever again, Sienna. Now, just give me my bloody flat key and go.”
“Why do I feel like you’re lying to me, Scorpie?” Sienna asks gently, crossing her arms and I can see in her eyes that tears are forming. “I’ve always been able to tell when you were lying and right now, I can feel it.”
I sigh. “I did not cheat on you, Sienna. And you obviously never knew me that well if you honestly think that I would. Contrary to my family name, I’m not a fucking coward or traitor.”
Sienna twirls the key off her key chain and tosses it at me as she stomps out of the kitchen, out of the flat and out of my damned life.
I relax against the counter and cross my arms. I trusted Sienna with that private information about Carolyn’s roommate when we were in Hogwarts together, long before we started dating. She promised me that she would never use it against me and she just shattered that promise. Carolyn doesn’t even know that I know about her roommate, but it isn’t that difficult to figure since they were inseparable at Hogwarts. I had told Sienna in our sixth year and she hadn’t told a single soul, that I know of.
