“Well, well, well, what’s a beautiful lady like you doing here all by herself?” James said sitting next to Emmeline who was staring somewhere and didn’t answer back “Emm? Are you okay?”
“Maybe they should date” She said out of the blue without looking at him
“Who?” he asked trying to find what was she looking at
“Remus and Dorcas, maybe you should talk to him…”
“Giving your man to another girl Emm? Doesn’t sound like you…” James joked taking some Bertie Botts from her, Emmeline laughed
“Actually it sounds just like me…” She turned around with a little smile “Besides, I’m not giving anyone, he likes her…”
“He likes you.” James stated looking at her like she was not making sense
“James,” she smiled softly “I don’t think I need to explain you from everybody about that extra attention you pay to someone you like…” She paused and looked again where Remus and Dorcas where talking, probably about the test they had earlier “He looks at her when she walks near us, he tries not to stare, but he also tries not to miss a bit; he knows she’s not that into chocolate so he tries not to offer unless he’s already eating some; on Wednesdays, after divination, he likes to take the long way back to the tower, because that way he could pass by the library, did you know Dorcas goes to the library during divination?” she looked at him again acting surprised, almost facinated “Oh and I’ve never seen in my life Remus so happy about someone failing some class since she asked him some help with potions…”
“M-Maybe she doesn’t like him” He knew it wasn’t the best thing to say, specially when he knew Remus did in fact like Emmeline, but he was overwhelmed and then maybe just maybe he wasn’t completely right…
“Oh but she does” she answered looking away from him again, with no smile this time “she does, that’s the problem…”
“Hey handsome” Emmeline said letting some books fall on the table and sitting in front of Remus with a smile “Has your day had been as lovely as yourself?”
“W-what?” Remus replied nervously looking at her. Emmeline just rolled her eyes.
“I’m trying to start a conversation here. So, Was your day as beautiful as your face?”
“Emm, are you feeling alright?”
“Merlin Remus, you are so dense, sometimes I wonder why I like you so much”
“I’m trying to be friendly, like with James and Sirius? I just ask them if they’re having a day as beautiful as they are, if that’s even possible, and they answer me that it’s not as interesting as me. We laugh and then we lie in the ground till we had something to tell each other, you’ve been there!”
“… And why are you talking to me like was Sirius or James?”
“You are really curious today, Mr Lupin! I don’t know, trying to loosen up the tension a little, I guess”
“And what on earth makes the carefree Emmeline Vance to have any tension?” He said jokingly, but Emmeline just sighed in response.
“We are friends, aren’t we Remus?” She asked suddenly with serious face.
“Y-yes, of course we are Emm, is everything alright?”
“You know, a few months ago I thought your problem was the only secret you kept from me, the last one… well, at least on the list of the most important ones…”
“Emmeline, you are scaring me…”
“Point is, why can’t we just talk? Like I do with Sirius and James? Like those times when we make fun of how much James really loves Lily, or practically every week when Sirius pisses off Marlene and I make him to beg for my help? Why can’t we be like that?”
“Hush now! You know sometimes, I don’t even know if you’re doing it subconsciously… but… every single time I’m with you and the guys and they start talking about Lily or Marls or even some random Slytherin that could be totally fit if she was in any another house… every single time, the conversation either ends or changes completely before we get to talk about you… and… and I know you are seeing Dorcas”
“No, it’s okay, don’t make that face! It’s not like I’m asking for explanations, please, I’m not your mum… or… your girl for what matter, right? I just… just…” Emmeline started rambling and looked to the window trying to avoid watching Remus’ reactions “You don’t need to feel uncomfortable talking about her with your friends, next time just say whatever you please instead of hiding behind one of those I’m-in-my.mind-being-happy smiles… I… we’re friends, we can talk about everything” She looked at him once more and smiled, a weak smile. “Well, now if you excuse me, I have to find Lily for Charms before she finds me and possibly kills me, see you in there!”
She was sitting alone in the library, reading a big potions book she had found earlier and trying to understand how something like mixing colored water could be so damn difficult.
The chair from the other side of the table moved and someone sat down. She looked up and saw was Remus smiling at her, she smiled a little too and stared back at her book.
“What are you doing?” He asked, trying to understand what was so interesting about that particular big old book.
“Trying to learn why the last time I made polyjuice potion Alice ended up at the hospital wing instead of looking like me”
“You spent here all day doing that? That’s why you didn’t go to class?” he asked surprised.
“Yup” She said reading the book and looking at her paper once more “Why? Did you miss me?” she teased.
Dorcas looked up to find Remus looking directly at her eyes, she closed the book and smiled a little.
“I missed you too Rem”
