My peaceful sleep was interrupted when I heard a loud scream from the room I shared with Lily. I slept on the couch for the whole morning with Sirius. I looked at my boyfriend, who surprisingly was still asleep. I bet he felt really exhausted. From the six times I shared my nights with him, I had witnessed him as the most sensitive person ever. Even the slightest sound of a crack could wake him up. This was very unsual.
“...I ask you one more time, Potter. What did you do to my books?” Lily screamed as she made her way into the kitchen, with James following her.
“I didn’t do anything, Evans,” snarled James. “Why would I touch your books? I’d rather touch Hagrid’s shit than your books.”
“Like I’d believe that. Brilliant lie, by the way.”
“They’re at it again, don’t they?” Sirius muttered sleepily. I jumped out of shock.
“You were awake already,” I said slowly.
“Of course I was,” Sirius said, opening his eyes at last. “The moment Lily entered James’ room, I was awake already.”
“You have to buy me another set of books, Potter!” Lily shouted so loudly I had to cover my ears.
“What the fuck? Why should I buy you a set of books?” James yelled. “It wasn’t me who poured ink to your books!”
“You slept like a dead person,” I said, raising my voice so that Sirius could hear me. “I thought you were still asleep.”
“One thing you’ve to learn from me; I barely sleep. I find it fucking hard to sleep. I know you’ll hate me for saying this, but you can ask James or Remus or Peter about it. Since Reg always came into my room, probably trying to kill me, I’ve trained myself to be alert to my surroundings.”
“But, your eyes were still closed. And your breathings were even like someone’s asleep.”
“I don’t like people to know that I’m awake. I like to stay silent so I can hear what’s happening around me without people finding out.”
“DON’T LIE TO ME!” Lily screamed. “IT WAS YOU WHO POURED THAT PERMANENT INK ALL OVER MY BOOKS! I KNOW IT!”
“MAYBE IT WAS YOU
, EVANS!” James bellowed. “MAYBE YOU WERE SLEEP WALKING AND POURED THE INK YOURSELF, DREAMING THAT THEY WERE MY BOOKS!”
“Oh, you two are awake already,” said Remus, who was coming down, looking fit if not a bit pale. He walked toward the kitched and shut the door closed before he headed on our direction.
“Everyone in this country would be awake if they keep on shouting like that,” I said. Remus just smiled slightly.
“Where’s Charlus and Dorea?” Remus asked. I shrugged.
“I don’t know. We just woke up awhile ago. Probably they’re leaving us for the day, tired of hearing James and Lily screaming.”
“I wonder how they haven’t lost their voice yet,” Remus inquired. Sirius grinned at his comment but didn’t say anything. Instead, he opted to listen to James and Lily, which Remus and I finally did too.
“YOU’RE AN ARSEHOLE, POTTER. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT!”
“OH, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, LITTLE MISS PERFECT. THANKS A LOT FOR POINTING OUT THE OBVIOUS. THAT’S VERY NICE OF YOU.”
“I AM NICE, YOU’RE NOT. YOU ALWAYS PICK ON THE INNOCENCE. YOU EVEN PICK ON SNAPE WHEN HE WASN’T READY.”
“ALRIGHT, NOW WE’RE BACK ON TALKING ABOUT DEAR SWEET SNIVELLUS. NEWSFLASH, MISS KNOW-IT-ALL, SNAPE CAN BLOODY WEL FIGHT ME BACK.”
“STOP CALLING ME NAMES!”
“AT LEAST I NEVER CALL YOU A YOU-KNOW-WHAT!”
“THAT’S RICH, FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS CALL ME NAMES FOR YEARS!”
“I NEVER CALL YOU THAT
THAT’S WHAT SNIVELLUS DOES.”
“They should stop fighting,” Sirius finally said. I clapped my hand together.
“Yes! Finally someone agrees with me,” I exclaimed. Sirius and Remus threw me a look, I could only grin meekly. The voices of James and Lily screaming were getting louder, and could probably be heard until Japan right now.
“I have a plan,” Remus said, grinning mischievously for the first time ever since I knew him.
“And that is?” Sirius said, raising an eye brow.
“The two of them should talk about each other’s feelings.”
I scoffed. “If I could make theM do that, I’d do that since our first year, Remus.”
“No, you don’t understand what I mean,” Remus said. He glanced at Sirius, still grinning. “What about you, Padfoot? Do you understand what I mean?”
Sirius’ eyes were blank for ten seconds before he smiled widely. “Are you thinking about-“
“Yes, that’s exactly what I’m thinking.”
“But, how could we-“Sirius looked at the sealed chest near James’ parents’ bedroom. He barked an amused laugh. “Brilliant, Moony. Really brilliant.”
“What? What are you talking about?” I said. Sirius looked at me, his face looked like it would split into two since he was smiling so wide.
“We want James and Lily to talk about each other’s feelings, yes?” Sirius said.
“Yeah, but the two of them won’t do it. Except that there’s another person being-“I closed my mouth with my hand and gasped.
“You mean, you and I will be James and Lily? Then we talk to them?” I said, finally getting the idea.
“Yep,” Remus said, popping the p.
“And where should we get the Polyjuice Potion?” I asked.
“You do know that Charlus and Dorea were Aurors, right? And that they’re Purebloods,” Sirius reminded. I nodded.
“Yes, of course. But that-“my eyes flew right at the same chest Sirius looked at. “Are you telling me that the chest contains Polyjuice Potion?”
“Uh-huh,” Sirius and Remus said at the same time.
“How could we get it open? It’s locked.”
“James has the key,” Sirius said. “All I need is to steal the key from that git. Problem’s solved.”
I laughed whole-heartedly. “This is mad. If any of them ever found out, they’d have our heads.”
“Well, just make sure that they won’t find it out, right?” Remus said. I looked at him, clearly amused that Remus Lupin could joke.
“So, are you in, Isilee?” Sirius said, a similar grin like the one Remus had was plastered on his face. “Will you help us to help our two stupid but unfortunate friends?”
I smiled and nodded. “I’m definitely in.”
Bloody hell, I could already see how James and Lily would react.
Hi there! Just like I promised you, I'm posting chapter 33 today (20/07/12). Probably, this chapter will be on of my favourites. And I hope it will be yours, too.
I just re-read all the reviews you wrote to me. I want to thank you for being so generous and share your thoughts with me. Reading your reviews always make me, even more so than a bar of chocolate does to me! :)
By the way, tell me if you like/love/hate/disappointed with the chapter. I'll dedicate the next chapter for those who tell me what they think about this chapter. You just need to write like/love/hate/disappointed in the end of your review!
Thanks for reading and please review,
As I promised, here's another sneak-peek!
The changing made me sick and I barely realised my surroundings. When it stopped, my eyes looked into my reflection on the glass-table in front of me. It wasn’t my eyes that looked back into mine. It was Lily’s green eyes. My jaw literally dropped.
“Bloody-“I gasped and closed my mouth with my hands. I even sounded like Lily!
“Are you done yet? Because, James is coming down at any moment,” Sirius said. But, it wasn’t Sirius’ voice. I turned around and found James sitting next to me. I would have thought he really was James if it wasn’t for the annoyed look on his face. It looked a lot with the ones I had saw on Sirius’ face.
Hope you like it and till next chapter! :)
