Read this chapter slowly while listening to Katy Perry's Legendary Lovers on YouTube or Grooveshark. Thanks!
Remus had poured part of his heart out to me, and I guess we were dating now. We haven't told any of the Marauders yet. We were nervous as to what they would say.
I told Remy that James would probably have a small amount of anger. Because of his grudge. Remy and I both agree that Sirius will be really upset. In a way I feel bad choosing Remy over Sirius. Sirius loves me, but not the way I wished he did.
We'd decided to tell Peter first, hoping he would keep quiet. We were going to tell James next, putting Sirius last. I'm not sure if James will tell Sirius before we have a chance to, but maybe the truth coming from his best mate will help? I wouldn't think so. Remy says I should tell him because who knows what he would do to Remy. He can be very aggressive, he's worse than a wild dog sometimes.
The day came where we would tell the marauders. We found Peter in the boys' dorm looking through a drawer.
"What's up guys?" he asked still rummaging through the drawer.
"Peter, we have something to tell you." I said hurriedly.
"Hmm?" He turned around and looked at us. Remy took my hand in his. Peter began to shake and a big smile spread across his mousy face. He got up and pulled us together in a backbreaking hug. "Wonderful! But Sirius will kill you Moony." I had to laugh at that. After he released us he gave Remy a look like they were keeping something from me. I ignored it.
On our way down the steps, we found James.
"Jamesie." he looked at me and squinted his eyes. "Older brother," a look of boredom crossed his face. "master of pranks? Come on. I'm sorry about the Jarvey okay? Please talk to me, I have to tell you something."
He sighed. "I already figured it out. Go tell Sirius. He'll be bloody furious." He continued up the steps and Remy and I exchanged glances. Sirius would be next on the list.
We found Sirius by the lake under the marauders' favorite tree. Remy shook my hand out of his grasp. Tears began to slowly form in my eyes. It would hurt hurting Sirius. He was such a good friend and I feel like I'm betraying him in a way.
"Sirius?" I asked.
He was hanging upside down in the tree. "Yes mini, darling? What's wrong?" he wiped the tears out of my eyes and gave me the saddest look.
I shook my head, "Remy and I are dating now." I blurted. I pulled my head out of his hands and started to run. Remy reached for me. But I was faster than him. My eyes were filled at the brim with tears. So I set my tears free. I made it to lake and sat down at the edge and sobbed. I didn't want to look behind, so I jumped forward into the lake.
The lake was a beautiful aqua I hadn't noticed when I jumped in with James a year or two ago. It was gorgeous. Distracting. No wonder James was down here so often. I was so distracted I hadn't noticed the arms around my waist and the face in front of me. Remus Lupins. His blue eyes blended in with the water. He pulled me into him and kissed me. And again. And again. We kissed until we needed to come up for air. And even then after we had caught our breath I swam to him and kissed him again. I could feel my feelings of sadness melting away. I felt safe with him. He pulled me under again and we had another make out session. When we went to the surface, he looked me in the eyes and said, "I love you Mel." And kissed my forehead.
I couldn't say I love you too. So I swam back to the shore. My lips still numb from his touch.
Good luck with those feels my minions =)
