Stay With Me

"Go away!" she said, turning her head away from him.
"Leave me alone! I've made my choice."
He reached out to touch her shoulder, but she got up and started walking away. He stood there for a fraction of a second before running after her.
"Look, I'm sorry for what I said, I didn't mean to-"
She started walking faster. "Leave me the hell alone, Severus. He asked me, I said yes, end of story."
She was nearly at the end of the corridor, approaching the portrait on the wall.
"How can you and him-"
He stood, frozen to the spot. Thousands of happy memories came to his mind, all they had been through together, as she said the password and the portrait swung on its hinges to let her into the common room. Then, something hit him on the head. He stared at the thing that had brought him back to reality. A little golden ball, still feebly flapping its fragile golden wings. He turned in time to see a boy with untidy dark hair and glasses...


4. The Price of Anger

James was the first one to act.
The book in Severus' hands burst into flame, and a hiss of pain escaped his lips as he dropped it. He stood and another boy stepped forward.
Severus froze and stayed suspended in mid-step as the spell hit him. A stream of mixed swear words and hexes poured out of his mouth, but his wand lay on the ground and he couldn't move.
'Wash out your mouth.' James said , dispassionately. 'Scourgify!'
Severus felt the soap bubbles fill his mouth and throat, he couldn't breathe, and he desperately tried to move-
She was there, knocking James' wand out of his hand, and the bubbles spilled out of Severus' mouth, leaving a foul taste that made him want to vomit. But he could breathe again. And he could feel the ability to move slowly coming back to him.
'Leave him alone!' She said again. James picked up his wand off the grass. 
'I will if you go out with me, Evans.'  he said. One of the boys raised a pale eyebrow, but the tallest one nodded in approval. Severus slowly bent over  to pick up his wand. 
'I wouldn't go out with you if it was a choice between you and the giant squid.' Lily said coolly, and James swore loudly. Severus took careful aim.
'Bad luck,' said the tall boy, running a hand through his dark hair. Then he spotted Severus. 'Oi, you!'
He was too late. 
'Sectumsempra!' Severus yelled, and a large gash appeared across the side of James' head. Before he could blink, the tall boy muttered an incantation and Severus found himself suspended in the air by his ankle. His robes fell down over his face and the rat-faced boy laughed. Severus could feel his face burning as James jeered.
'Go on then! If she agrees to what I ask, I'll let you down. It's all up to her, isn't that right, Evans? Go on, beg for her to help you!'
Severus saw red. 'I don't need help from a filthy little mudblood like her!' he snapped. She blinked, and then turned and left.
