I was woken up by a loud singing coming from the common room. I laughed and sat up.
"Bring your presents down here!" Sirius called up to me
"Okay," I hollered back pushing the covers off of me
I grabbed my presents and ran down the stairs to the common room. Sirius smiled when he saw me. I smiled back and he hugged me, taking my presents.
"You'll have to wait for mine," He said
"Then you'll have to wait for mine," I laughed
"Okay," he shrugged, "Open them!"
I laughed and we started opening our presents. I had gotten one from everyone of Sirius' friends. One from Lily and surprisingly enough, one from Severus.
"Now for my present," I smiled handing Sirius a small box
He smiled slowly taking off the paper.
"Stop teasing me!" I laughed, "Open it!"
He ripped wildly into the paper grinning at my laughter.
"Belief!" His eyes widened when he saw what I got him, "Why'd you spend so much money?"
"'Cause," I grinned, I had gotten him a Griffindor ring with his initials engraved on it
"Well, then it's your turn." Sirius smiled
"Okay," I said taking a long box out of his hand
I opened the box. I gapsed. Inside was a charm bracelet with an obviously custom charm on it. The charm had our initials entwined beautifully.
"And you were upset because I spent so much,"
"You deserve it," Sirius smiled, "And besides, this way, we'll always be together."
"Oh, Sirius!" I hugged him tightly
"What do you want to do?" Sirius asked sliding his hand into mine
"Let's go fly," I grinned
"Anything for you," He smiled back at me
"Anything for you too," I laughed
We went outside and Sirius went to go get brooms for us. I waited there grinning, this was the best Christmas I had ever had. He returned with a broom in his hand.
"Why only one, Sirius Black?" I laughed
"Memories," He shrugged smiling at me
"I see," I smiled, "You want to feel my arms around your waist again, don't you?"
"Maybe," He got on the hovering broom, "There's only one way to find out,"
"Okay," I took his outstretched hand
"Let's fly," He smiled
I was flying with Sirius when suddenly I saw a man step out of the shadows. I gasped and Sirius turned to face me.
"What it is?" He saw the worry on my face
"Nothing," I shook my head
"Belief," He looked me in the eyes
"I think I see the guy who murdered my parents." I whispered
"I'll get rid of him," Sirius said confidently
"No, go get Professor Dumbledore. I'll make sure he doesn't leave." I said
"I can't let you stay here alone," Sirius answered
"You will," I replied
"Fine, if you need me just scream, as loud as you can. Understand?" Sirius made me promise
"I will," I nodded and Sirius touched down
He ran off as fast as he could and I stood there in the cold, white snow. The man came closer to me. Minutes passed and Sirius still wasn't back yet. I didn't want to turn, in case the man tried to attack while my back was turned.
Suddenly the man muttered under his breath. I saw a flash of green and heard a devastated scream. Everything went fuzzy, but I was sure I saw the man run away. Sirius hadn't been there. I saw a figure over me crying.
"He wasn't here," Were the last words out of my mouth
