All right, I miss you, okay? I miss talking to you and shagging you and dancing with you and listening to you tell jokes. I miss that strong vanilla-like smell that you always had, the way you leaned in slightly when you were reading a good book. Damn it, I miss you and maybe I always will.
If I miss you enough, will you come back?
I’ve gone from sounding like an arse to sounding like I’m a little kid. I don’t think that’s an improvement.
“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”
“What’s that noise?” Sirius asked Marlene coming inside the living room.
“I don’t know” she said pointing at the phone “is coming from that”
“Marls can you answer, please? I’m busy” they both heard Lily shouting from upstairs.
They were all going out in the muggle world that night; Emmeline,- who had been there before, was gone to pick up James, Remus and Peter, while Marlene and Sirius stayed with Lily, who was now getting ready.
“No problem!” Marlene shouted back and then looked at him “I have no idea how to do that”
“You have to take this part and say ‘Wayne’s manor, please hold’ and that’s it”
“Wayne’s manor?” she whispered picking up the phone and staring at it.
“Is what muggles said when they answer that thing on someone else’s house, it’s like etiquette or something, so they know is not the owner answering, don’t you remember from muggle studies? Hurry, is not polite to keep them waiting!”
“Okay, okay” she said moving the phone to her ear, and using her best serious voice said “Wayne’s manor, please hold”
There was a pause “What? Lily?” a female voice came from the other side.
“… Wayne’s manor, please hold!” Marlene repeated not knowing what else to do, thinking maybe she hasn’t heard her.
“Marls?” the woman spoke again “Marls is that you?”
“Yes! Did you say Wayne’s manor?” Marlene could hear Sirius trying to hide his -laugh behind her.
“You tricked me!” she shouted turning to face him.
“I did not! That’s what they say on Batman when the butler answer the phone at Batman’s house”
“That’s a muggle tv show, moron!” She shouted again hitting his arm.
Sirius laughed harder “It was just a joke, relax. At least it was Emmeline… What did she wanted, by the way?”
“What do you mean?”
“Why did she called?”
“Why would I know?”
“Because you talked to her and hung up”
“I did what?”
I’ll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
It was a well known fact among the girls that Sirius Black did not date a girl more than once. He didn’t like to repeat them.
Of course, this was actually a lie. Sirius never said such thing, but at some point the girls decided this was a rule of his, and he just kinda went with it.
It wasn’t completely untrue anyway, he did have this tendency of not dating a girl he already had dated before. Besides, there were so many girls in Hogwarts, he couldn’t just stay all the time with one. It’s like asking for the same ice cream flavor all summer. So boring.
Except for that coffee with rum ice cream flavor, that thing’s fantastic.
Besides, girls get too attached. Girls always want something serious in the end so by dating them once, for no more than a week, he could avoid all the relationship issues and drama.
Of course there were always those girls that just want to have fun, almost like a friend you shag, well… sometimes even like a stranger you shag. Girls he could go back to and didn’t have to worry about feelings, because they both knew there was nothing there.
And then, there was Marlene McKinnon.
Just like coffee rum ice cream. Opposite to all the others.

He touched her back and moved his fingers to her bra. She ran her hands from the back of his neck all the way through his arms to place them above his head, she was in control this time.
He tried to free his right arm and roll over to be on top but she smiled in the kiss and parted their lips just enough to whisper “Not this time Black…”
“Mhh come on Hestia…” he answered smoothly with his eyes still close and a half smile on his face.
Marlene suddenly stopped.
Sirius’ eyes snapped open “What?”
“I can’t believe you…”
“No no no no no, wait…”
“Oh my god, I’m about to cheat on Gideon with someone that doesn’t even know my name…”
“Wait, no, I-”
“Just… just go away Black… just… leave me alone…”
