21. Two Werewolves, One House
"Truth or Dare?" asked Marlene. "Ah, the fragrance in these words-how wrong-yet so very right," she sighed. I winced. "I don't care," grumbled Molly. I silently applauded her.
"Truth!" yelled Summer aka Curly. I exchanged a look with Allana.
"Ooooh! Ooooh! Who is it you give your heart to, my love, who do you wander in the clouds for? I ask this question because dear Lily-flower says we are too young for crushes~I say we are not."
Curly looked confused. "So, who do I have a crush on?" she grinned. "That's easy! Sisi!"
We all gaped at her. "Black?" me and Mary said together. "Sirius?" said Molly and Marlene. "Mr. Long Hair?" said Savannah and Allana. "Girl-magnet Number 2?" said Alice, twirling a basketball on her finger, seemingly fascinated by it.
"No, no, Sisi! That's his name," giggled Curly. I made a face. "Whatever you say, boss," I said rolling my eyes. Marlene jumped up. "Let's do an operation-Alas, it is called an operation-to get the loved one of your life to love you, no?"
"NO," said Molly and I together.
"Why not?" asked Curly. "Because he's BLACK!" shouted me and Mary.
"Okay, let us start the experiment," said Marlene looking triumphant.
Curly nodded. "But what do you mean, experiment?"
Marlene shrugged. "We see what he likes? What clothes, I suppose, oh yes it is true; He loves me and I love you! Sorry, couldn't find anything else that rhymed."
"Pathetic," joked Mary. "Simply pathetic."
Just then Mum called up. "Time to go, Lily-and-friends!" I heard her laughing at her own joke.
We stumbled down the stairs, and saw Potter and his "Marauders" all ready. So I did the logical thing to do; I glared at them. Black and Potter smirked back.
"Summer, I need to talk to you about something."
Summer turned around and saw her other best friend Remus Lupin.
"We're leaving in 10 minutes," she reminded him. He nodded. "I know. But you have to. Quickly."
Summer nodded and walked into Lily's "Living Room".
"I need to say...that...I'm...I'm a...monster."
Summer looked at him in surprise. "Why?" That was what she used to say to Savannah about-but Remus couldn't be one, he was too calm and collected and-
"-I'm a werewolf. So I'm a monster." He spoke clearly.
"Remus, am I a monster?"
"NO!" he said, and flushed. "You're not a monster because you're not a werewolf!"
Summer looked at him. Then she pulled up her sleeve. She had the same marks as him.
Remus stared. "But...you can't be a werewolf! Werewolves are monsters!"
"Oh, you did NOT just call me a monster!" joked Summer, rolling her eyes. "Honestly, don't be so hard on yourself, Remus. You're awesome."
And on that note, they left the "Living Room" and loaded into the car.
"Hey Sev!" I shouted as we got onto the train.
"Hi." His voice was flat, and I suddenly remembered how he was to Mary. But I had to forgive him. Mary had been pretty rude herself, actually. "Don't worry, I forgive you," I said.
He blinked. "Really? Well. Wow! Thanks Lil," he said, and we went to find a compartment.
