“So what would happen if you mix Snake fangs and Unicorn’s hair?” asked Lily holding the potions book
“In my case I’ll probably have to buy another cauldron… And maybe a new roof…” said Dorcas and the other girls laughed “Can we go now?”
“We have to study, we can go out later” answered Lily with a mother tone
“Of course, we have to study something we need in two weeks” add Emmeline sarcastically
“Your last amortentia smelled like herbicide, I can’t do something as simple as a cure for pox and Cassie’s potions are as safe as a bludger hitting the back of your head…”
“But we have two weeks!” Marlene rolled her eyes “I’m bored!”
“I don’t even remember a class in which you stayed awake for the whole hour”
There was a paused when Marlene looked at the other two “… why is she our friend again?”
“So, how does it feel?” Emmeline asked sitting next to him, breaking the silence.
“What?” Sirius questioned her back.
“Being so blindly in love with Marlene McKinnon that you have to deny it to your dearest friend?” A playful smile came across her lips.
“What? I am not-” Emmeline gave him one of her don’t-you-dare-lying-to-me looks, he snorted and looked away “I don’t know what you mean, besides, you’re one to talk, Miss…”
“I don’t understand what you are trying to imply! I’m clearly not deeply in love with any McKinnon, especially not with my friend Marlene” Emmeline said making a dramatic gesture.
Sirius rolled his eyes, “Well neither am I”. This time she was the one snorting.
“Of course you aren’t” she replied sarcastically “That’s why she’s the only exception to your ‘never dating a girl more than once’ rule and why you actually care what she says…”
“You are absolutely not my dearest friend”
“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!”
