Lily and I entered the common room to do some of our homework. Lily and I had the room to ourselves, so we had silence. I finished and leaned back in my chair. While I waited for Lily to finish so we could do something else I studied our common room.
The armchairs and couches were faded and battered. There were at least four tapestries on each wall. Everything was in red and gold. There was a fireplace in front of where Ginny and I were. You could see a large, wooden circle where the portrait of the fat lady was.
The wooden circle moved, opening the entrance to the common room. In walked first James, next Sirius, then Remus, and finally Peter scrambling behind. They were talking amongst themselves, disturbing the silence. I heard Lily quietly chuckle and close her book. They finally noticed us and walked over.
"Hello, Evans." James said checking Lily out
"And, hello Wakefield." Sirius did the same
"Hello there boys," Lily nodded politely
"Yes, hello." I flipped my hair over my shoulder like I was used to this
"Hi, Lily. Hi, Belief." Remus smiled up at us from his book
"Wakefield, Evans." Peter nodded at as looking like a total idiot
"Hello, Peter." We chorused
James and Sirius looked astonished, then panicked. Next anger took over their faces as Lily and I laughed, pretending to be amazed by the one and only Peter Pettigrew.
"Shove off, Peter." James said
"Okay," Peter said startled and walked out of the room
"Much better," Sirius laughed throwing a smile my way
"I agree," James smiled
"I'm going to go read in the dormitory," Remus looked up at the situation before him
"Okay," Sirius nodded looking very pleased
"So, ladies. What are you up to?" James smirked putting his arm around Lily
"We were doing our homework, until you toerags came in." I said
"I see," Sirius put his arm around my shoulders
"We could help you with your homework," James offered and I laughed
"What homework could you possibly help us with?" I snorted
"The homework we give to you," James nodded
"You don't give us homework," Lily pointed out
"But we could," Sirius said
"That doesn't really matter," I pointed out
"So," Sirius smiled, "We can always try,"
"Whatever," I scoffed pulling away
"James," Sirius said
"Yeah, Sirius?" James answered
"What homework would you give to Lily?" Sirius raised an eyebrow
"I would tell her that she needs to sneak out to the common room at midnight," James grinned, "What about you Sirius? What would you give Wakefield for homework?"
"I'd ask her to go to the Room of Requirement at midnight," Sirius and James were obviously planning something
"What do you think, Bel? What do you think they'll give us in return?" Lily looked at me
"I don't think they'll give us anything, Lily. They don't think that it's necessary. That's desperate to them." I nodded we were both smiling, unnoticed by James and Sirius
James and Sirius looked at each other, once again panicked. Lily and I laughed.
"They're delusional, if they believe we'd show up for free," Lily snorted
"There will be surprises for both of the ladies, won't there James?" Sirius input giving his friend a look
"Oh, yes! Big surprises!" James nodded quickly
"I see," I took Lily's arm, "Come on Lily,"
And we left the room, leaving the boys to their thoughts.
