A Secret is Meant to be Kept

When Ron lashes out at Hermione and gets them into a sticky situation, Hermione transports herself back in time. But the Marauders Era was a bit farther than she expected. She must figure out how to reverse the spell, deal with falling in love all over again and fight against some of the most notorious Death Eaters, who are inside the castle's walls. Not as intruders, but as classmates.


41. Some Things Never Change

Sirius stormed out of the room, screaming about his betrayal.  He walked downstairs into the little guest bedroom, and laid Lily and James down, hoping they would reawaken soon, and this would all be over.  He exited the little room and sat down in the kitchen.  He put his face in his hands, and felt as if he could just explode.  Death.  Wouldn't that be best for him?  Everyone hated him anyway.  Lily and James were... gone?  Remus and Hermione.... Remus and Hermione.... Remus just didn't understand what Sirius felt.  If you see someone you love in pain, would you leave?  Would you stay? It wasn't complicated in Sirius' mind, but he felt Remus and he weren't necessarily on the same page...  He contemplated the fastest way he could get out of his situation.  Apparation?  But what if Lily and James woke up..... Poison.... Death, he just shoved the idea out of his mind.  He decided to take a walk outside, to clear his head.  He would be in earshot if there was more screaming, and if Lily and James couldn't find Hermione and Remus, they'd surely go looking, and he could easily spot them.

"Oi'  What's happened in there?  I heard screaming, couldn't find Lily... And... Remus, was kind of... cuddling with Hermione.... I don't think they'd seen me.... I just left.....", spoke Carressa, approaching Sirius from behind.

"Hermione.... she's seeing things.... Load of screaming..... I dunno what Remus was doing... 'comforting her', I suppose.  He started, getting a bit, overprotective, yelled at me a bit, I just... I left.... Lily and James, frozen!  I have no idea what's going on, Hermione obviously didn't want ME to be the one to stay with her...."  He put his head in his hands, and a tear streamed down his face. "I just don't know anymore Carressa."

"I don't think it was intentional of Hermione to hurt you, she loves you, bloody hell, she's gonna marry you!"

"Yeah.. I guess.... Wait, how did you know about that?"

"I didn't, until a second ago!" she said with a smirk.  This made Sirius smile.  He wiped his eyes, and sat on the little park bench.  Winter already.  The snow drifted down onto the two bodies sitting, chatting, as if nothing was wrong.  Odd thing, it truly was.  When the snow came..... It tended to warm hearts.... But freeze relationships.  "D'ya reckon we'll be alright?" 


"Remus and I.... He seemed, intent on being with Hermione....  She's so!  Interesting, smart, pretty!  And now shes from the future, I can't compete with that..."  

Sirius stared at her for a moment, contemplating what to say next.

"Nevermind it then!  I shouldn't have said anything in the first place!" she said, as if offended.  It was unlike Carressa to talk about things like that, at least with Sirius.  It lets her guard down, and Carressa Aislin is most certainly not one for that!

"No!  That's not what I meant!  You're interesting!  If so, even more than Hermione!  She's all books..  You, you've the mind of a scholar!  And the heart of a warrior.  And pretty!  Hell, Carressa, your eyes!!  Azure perfection!  Your hair, long red fiery locks, you're as beautiful as any, even Hermione Granger!"  He chuckled, softly, barely audible.  This made Carressa blush.  Sirius shivered, and Carressa noticed he wasn't wearing gloves, so she put her hand on his, trying to warm him up, hardly a come on.  She was about to say a thank you when the worst thing that could possible happen, happened.  Not death eaters, no, not at all.  Hermione, Hermione back from the home.

"So... that's what you think?" asked Hermione, in a genuinely hurt tone.  Though her body language said otherwise.  She pursed her lips and crossed her arms, tapping her right foot on the ground.  This caused Sirius and Carressa to jump from their places on the bench.  "Holding hands too?"

"I came back to apologize for what I'd said to you earlier, I was just frustrated...  But, I guess some things never change, do they?" said Remus, appearing from behind her.
