Chapter 7

After explaining what you would be doing in class that day, Professor Flitwick told you to work in groups on the charm, the people at your table as your partners. You heard several girls groan in hope of working with the Marauders and couldn’t help smirking to yourself. You got to work with two guys that you had crushes on and one that you were starting to become friends with.

You tried to do the charm which according to Lily was supposed to be simple and found you couldn’t do it, at all.

“Damn heating charms.” You muttered, glaring at your wand. Remus, who you were working with and had already produced a successful heating charm on you, laughed lightly.

“You can’t do it cause you’re doing it wrong. Try it like this.” He did the charm again this time pointing it at the table. You frowned before copying his movements and saying the charm.

Remus grinned at you. “See it’s not hard, you just did it!” You smiled, clapping your hands together like a small child would then laughing at yourself.

The class passed quickly with you and the Marauders ending up having a paper fight since all of you finished early and received no homework. James flicked a ball of paper at you and hit you in the forehead. You sat still for a moment making James burst out laughing before cracking a smile and flinging the paper ball back at him.

Sirius and Remus who had been watching took this opportunity to hit you with as many paper balls as possible. You tried to cover your face so you wouldn’t get hit by them, but that proved a bit difficult cause you were almost falling off your seat from laughing so hard.

The others saw this and stopped hitting you with paper as they started laughing themselves. Just as Professor Flitwick came over to tell you off and most likely give you detention, the bell rang and all 4 of you grabbed your bags before running out of the room to avoid him.

Your next class was Potions. You and Lily sat together in that class while Jess sat with a kid named David she used to have a crush on. Behind you and Lily sat James and Sirius and behind them were Remus and Peter, who had just gotten out of the hospital wing after being cursed by some Slytherins a few days before. (I know I haven’t mentioned him up till now but that’s ok! It’s my story! Lol)

As class started, you and Lily started to prepare the ingredients you would need for your potion. As you chopped the roots of something or another you started humming to yourself. Unknown to you, you started humming louder as you worked and eventually Sirius and James could hear you. Lily had learned ages ago to ignore you whenever you started humming.

Leaning across his table, Sirius reached out and tapped you making you jump. Turning to him he asked grinning, “What is it that you’re humming now?”

You blushed slightly at being caught humming again then said, “All or Nothing, why?”

“Cause I could hear you perfectly.” He said smirking and your blush deepened. “Sing it.”

“Do I have to?” you whined, giving him a pleading look which made him laugh.

“Yes, you do babe, now sing it or else.”

“Or else what?”

He smirked but before he could answer James spoke, “Emma, if I were you, I wouldn’t want to find out what his ‘or else’ is, trust me on this one.”

You sighed then started singing just loud enough for him to hear you.

I know when he's been on your mind
That distant look is in your eye
I thought with time you'd realize
It's over over
It's not the way I choose to live
And something some where’s got to give
As sharing this relationship gets older older
You know I'd fight for you
But how I can fight someone who isn't even there
I've had the rest of you now I want the best of you
I don’t care if that's not fair

Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's no where left to fall
When you reach the bottom it's now or never
Is it all
Or are we just friends
Is this how it ends
With a simple telephone call
You leave me here with nothing at all

There are times it seems to me
I'm sharing you with memories
I feel it in my heart
But I don’t show it show it
And then there's times you look at me
As though I'm all that you can see
Those times I don't believe it's right
I know it know it

Don't me make me promises
Baby you never did know how to keep them well
I've had the rest of you
Now I want the best of you
It's time for show and tell

Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's no where left to fall
When you reach the bottom it's now or never
Is it all
Or are we just friends
Is this how it ends
With a simple telephone call
You leave me here with nothing at all

Cause you and I
Could lose it all if you've got no more room
No room inside for me in your life
Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's no where left to fall
It's now or never

Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's no where left to fall
When you reach the bottom it's now or never
Is it all
Or are we just friends
Is this how it ends
With a simple telephone call
You leave me here with nothing at all

Cause I want it all
Or nothing at all
There's no where left to fall
When you reach the bottom it's now or never
Is it all
Or are we just friends
Is this how it ends
With a simple telephone call
You leave me here with nothing at all

Sirius grinned broadly as you ended the song. “I stick by what I’ve said before Emma, you really should sing more often, even if it’s only for us.” He motioned to him, Lily, James and Remus. “You have an awesome voice.”

James nodded in agreement while Lily muttered, “I’ve been telling her that for years but does she listen to me? Nooooo.”

You laughed hearing her say that while the two boys behind you cracked identical grins. “I listen to you Lils,” you said sending her a smile, “I just never actually take your advice on those things!”

The guys laughed while Lily rolled her eyes. You knew she wasn’t mad at you though because you could see a small smile tugging at the corners of her lips.

**James’ POV**

“I can’t believe how close those two are,” I thought looking at Lily roll her eyes at Emma. “They’re probably as close as the Marauders are. Jess doesn’t seem to be as close to them for some reason though. Emmma and my Lily flower would die for each other, that’s obvious but Jess…there’s something about her that I don’t trust but I’m not sure what it is..”

I looked at Lily and watched her brush some of her hair out of her eyes before adding an ingredient to her potion and watching it form bubbles. Emma said something to her and she laughed, glancing back at me and Sirius for a split second, a smile on her face.

Merlin how I loved to see her smile. It lit up the room when she smiled and I could feel my insides do flip flops when she did. I just wish that for once, I could be the one who makes her smile and laugh like she does with her friends, and have her trust me completely.

But she hates me, for no reason.

Well ok, maybe not for no reason but that’s besides the point. Sure I can act like a bigheaded git sometimes and I pick on others for fun, but I’m trying to stop! I swear, I mean I haven’t picked on Snivellus in literally days!

Speaking of picking on Snivellus, Padfoot hasn’t seemed to be interested in tormenting the Slytherins that much anymore either. I wonder if he’s finally got a serious crush too?

I dropped an ingredient into my potion then jumped back in surprise as it started fizzling and sending off sparks. I yelped in surprise as one of the sparks hit my shoulder, burning a hole through my clothes and burning my skin painfully.

**Your POV**

You looked up hearing someone behind you yelp in pain. Turning around your eyes widened as you saw James and Sirius backing away from their cauldron which was emitting very large sparks. Apparently one of them had hit James.

Reaching over you tapped Lily on the shoulder and she turned as well before giving a startled gasp. Both of you started to back away as well not wanting to be that close to a cauldron that might explode in the very near future.

A minute later the potion did explode and you and Lily shrieked before she dived down to the floor and you threw your hands up to protect your face. The potion hit your arms and burned straight through your robes quickly before reaching your skin and burning that as well.

You yelped loudly in pain as you looked at your now red and blistering arms. The Professor came over just then and asked “What happened here?”

James came forward sheepishly and said “Professor, it’s my fault our potion blew up. I sort of added the wrong ingredient and yeah…” he trailed off, looking anywhere but you, Lily and the Professor.

“30 points from Gryffindor, Mr. Potter and I suggest that next time you pay a little more attention. Ms. White let me see your arms.”

You showed him your arms and he looked at them for a moment before saying, “Go sit back down, you’re perfectly fine.”

You looked at him, your mouth agape from shock. Just then Sirius came forward and all but yelled, “Are you bloody nuts man? Look at her arms, she needs to go to the bloody hospital wing!!”

“I don’t think so, she’ll be perfectly fine.” Your professor said silkily before turning and walking back to his desk.

You arms were throbbing painfully from the burns as you glared at him. The next thing you knew, Sirius and James had grabbed your hands and were dragging you out of the dungeons with your Professor yelling after you, “Potter! Black! Get back here or you’ll get detention for a week.”

They paid no heed however, and kept pulling your forcefully towards the hospital wing.

“Ummm…guys?” you said tentatively once we were out of the dungeons. Neither of them responded other than to shoot you a glance. “You can stop dragging me you know.”

They both glanced at each other before letting you go and mumbling an apology. As the three of you walked to the hospital wing you asked curiously, “Why did your potion blow up anyways?”

James looked at the floor sheepishly while Sirius pointed at his best friend. “Ask him.”

You looked over at James who said, “I was thinking and-”

Sirius let out a bark of laughter and said, “The famous James Potter, actually thinking? This has got to be a miracle!”

You smiled slightly then turned back to James. He glared at Sirius for a moment then said, “I was thinking and not paying attention and I put the wrong ingredient in and yeah…you know the rest.”

You nodded and the three of you fell silent. You were walking between the two of them and it suddenly struck you as to how tall they were compared to you, and how short you felt around them. Both of them were about the same height, and you barely reached their shoulders. Not that tall guys were a bad thing…

When you walked into the hospital wing Madame Pomfrey rushed over and asked, “What in the world did you two do to her?”

She lead you to a bed and made you sit on it while James explained, “Our potion kind of exploded in class because I wasn’t paying attention. She got hit with it…we did too.”

Now that you looked at them, Sirius had a burn on his cheek and James had one on his shoulder. Apparently they had more sense than you and tried to move out of the way of the potion. It seemed that Lily was the only one who managed not to get hit.

She put some kind of gooey lotion on your arms where you got burned before telling you to stay on the bed until she came back and took the goo off. She put it on James’ shoulder and Sirius’ face as well and said they had to stay.

They came over and sat on the end of your bed, James looking slightly unhappy. “So what were you thinking about anyways?” You asked.

His cheeks tinged pink as he muttered, “Lily.” You rolled your eyes lightly at him while Sirius chuckled and muttered,

“Should’ve guessed that.”

About an hour later Madame Pomfrey let the three of you out of the hospital wing. As you walked to the Great Hall for lunch you ran into Lily, Jess, Remus and Peter who all wanted to know what had taken so long. After you had explained everything all of you walked to the Great Hall together, Lily walking as far away from James as she could manage which wasn’t very far.

When you reached the Great Hall, everyone split up. You went to sit with Lily and Jess while the four Marauders went to sit together.

As you at, the three of you fooled around, talking and laughing. You looked down the table suddenly towards where the Marauders were sitting and felt a rather large pain of jealousy.

Sirius was sitting there, talking to a blonde girl who he had his arm around. She was laughing and blushing. Just then he leaned over and whispered something into her ear, making her blush like mad and start to giggle.

You heard Lily and Jess stop talking suddenly and turned your head back to them. Since they were across the table from you, you noticed that they were watching something behind you.

Someone tapped you on the shoulder and you jumped, not expecting it before turning around. Standing behind you and grinning nervously was one of the last people you had ever expected to want to talk to you.
