“L/n!” You turned from where you were sitting in the great hall to search for the person calling your name only to see the girl from your potions class, Angie, looking angry as all hell storming down to your table. You weren’t exactly enemies with the Gryffindor girl, but you weren’t braiding each other’s hair and eating ice cream together either. “What did you do?!”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.” Your voice was calm yet confused as she arrived at where you were sitting.
You stared dumbfounded at her as she continued to stare you down. She was currently pointing an accusing finger at you whilst a pair of girls stood behind her as if for backup.
“You know exactly what!” Angie turned around to reveal a small bald patch on her head. You held in your laughter which was threating to escape. “Fix it!” She had now turned back around and screamed in your face.
“I can’t fix it if I didn’t do it.” You pointed out slowly with a poorly stifled smile. Angie screamed before storming away and branding you a liar.
Okay, so you would have had plenty motivation for getting back at her after she humiliated you in potions class the other day, but you didn’t have the time let alone the energy to concoct a plan of revenge. But whoever it was, you had to give them props because Angie loved her hair.
Most people had turned to stare at you as the drama unfolded and now they were whispering over their breakfasts, occasionally shooting you glances. You had already had enough of people and it was only 9 in the morning.
With a large sigh you got up and walked to your first lesson of the day which was Charms. You smiled as you entered and saw your best friend waiting at your usual seats. The row behind which was usually occupied with two Ravenclaw girls was now replaced with two loud Gryffindor boys. You gave another sigh accompanied by a roll of your eyes as you sat and prepared yourself for the lesson. Today was going to be a long day.
You quickly realised that the two boys were the infamous James Potter and Sirius Black. You had shared classes with them for 3 years now but had rarely spoken to them. There were usually 4 of them in their friendship group, you knew this because you were friends with Remus Lupin and often studied with him for DADA. But James and Sirius were a lot louder and rambunctious than their friend and the longer you spent with them, the more it got on your nerves.
Especially when one of them was constantly annoying you for ink or a spare quill. When Sirius asked for the 5th time that day, your friend snapped, turning sharply in her seat to look at him. “Do you ever bring anything to class?!”
Sirius looked mildly shocked at the small outburst before his slightly agape jaw stretched into a smirk. “Well, I bring my devilish good looks.” He quirked an eyebrow to her before turning to you and winking. A small shy smile crossed your lips as you looked away with what you were sure was a very obvious blush, but you quickly regained yourself and looked him straight in the eyes with a smirk to match his own.
“Well, maybe if you put down the mirror and the hairbrush once in a while, you’d be able to remember something as simple as a quill.” You smiled sarcastically as James laughed beside him. “Your hair isn’t even that great.” You knew you were lying really but the look of annoyance on Sirius’s face and the pure amusement on James’ was quite fun.
“Well, maybe if you got your nose out of a book once in a while you could actually interact with the rest of society.” Sirius joked, and you knew that the words were exactly that, a joke so you didn’t take any of it to heart and you knew he wouldn’t either.
“What so you mean talk to people like you? I’ll pass.” You screwed up your face sarcastically and gave a fake jokey smile. Sirius gave a chuckle.
“Oh damn! You just got burned, and by burned, I mean detonated. Just lie down and die. There is no bouncing back from that one.” James laughed, and you couldn’t really tell if he was being sarcastic or not, but you didn’t really care as Sirius looked impressed with a quiet smile and you couldn’t help but smile back.
That was until you heard a squeaky cough come from behind you. Swivelling back around to face the front of the class you were met with Flitwick’s rather angry stare. He gave the 4 of you a lecture about paying attention before rushing over to a student who had managed to nearly blind another with a misdirected spell.
It wasn’t until dinner that you saw Sirius again. You were just sitting with a small group of friends from your house when Angie once again stormed over angrily. She started to go on about stupid pranks and her hair before her attack became more personal and if you weren’t enemies with her before well, you were now.
Some of the other students had once again tuned in for more drama and some were even laughing along at Angie’s insults. That was until she abruptly stopped as she spotted someone. You looked over just in time to see Sirius and his friends walking over. Angie stood up a bit straighter and tried to primp her hair. You rolled your eyes so hard you were sure you could see the back of your head.
Angie greeted Sirius with a (not-so) charming smile, but he didn’t seem to return the gracious greeting.
“Angie, leave Y/n alone.” Sirius flashed you a small smile before he turned to Angie with a rather malicious smirk. “How’s the hair by the way?” There was something knowing in his tone and she must have caught on because she looked even more outraged than usual as she stormed past the both of you, her hand over the quickly re-growing patch of hair.
Sirius’ friends all clapped him on the back before leaving for their own table, but he stayed, smiling at you. His hands were in his pocket as he nodded towards the large door and before you could even register the movement you were nodding and getting up from your seat.
The entrance hall was deserted because many people were currently tucking into their dinner as the rumble in your stomach reminded you. But how could anyone resist Sirius Black and the air of mystery and adventure that followed him and of course that godforsaken smile. Your brain must have ceased to function as you stood there because you didn’t know what to do or how to act or if you should start talking first-
“I wanted to say sorry.” Sirius’ voice pulled you out of your spiral of thoughts.
“What? What for?” You knew your expression must have been a picture with your tightly furrowed brows and half a smile on your lips. Sirius laughed.
“For being an annoying prick earlier.” You were surprised and were just about to say there was no need for an apology when his next words stunned you even further. “I actually think you’re pretty cute when you have your nose in a book.” He smirked again and yep, your brain had definitely turned to mush at this point whilst your heart was beating faster than a drum. You hadn’t even thought he’d noticed you before. Maybe Sirius was a legilmens because he was hasty to dismiss your next train of thought. “I don’t watch you, I just see you around a lot and you always seem to read. I even saw you reading at a quidditch game before.” He looked at you as if you were crazy, but it was in a fond sort of way. He remained calm and never let the smirk fade from his lips even as a small tint of red crept up his neck.
You gave a little laugh and nodded to indicate his statement’s truth. You thought quickly and then realised you owed him an apology. “I’m sorry too.” Sirius looked on at you confusedly, quirking his head and eyebrow at you. “Your hair is actually nice.” You ran a hand through his locks for emphasis and his smirk grew impossibly wider with another breathy chuckle. You blushed as your brain switched on and you realised what you were doing but you didn’t pull away and instead kept your fingers entangled in his hair. It was very soft. “Also thank you for helping me with Angie.”
Sirius nodded. “Ah well, that was revenge for both of us. I couldn’t see her upset you any further especially not after what happened in potions. And plus, she cheated on me so.” He shrugged causally but you saw a flicker of pain cross his face and your hand instinctively lowered from his hair to stroke his face. His smirk faded into a kind smile.
Someone called your name from the doorway to the great hall and you turned to see one of your friends. They reminded you that you had to study after dinner. You sighed with a roll of your eyes and a knowing nod. Another rumble in your stomach indicated that you needed food.
It must have been loud as Sirius let out a loud laugh. Your friend smiled before going back to re-join the table. “You better go, your dinner’s calling you.” Another laugh from the both of you before you nodded with a large grin. Your hand dropped back down to your side and Sirius made a little joking pout with his lips. You laughed once more and kissed him sweetly on the cheek.
You turned to go back into the great hall before a hand gently grabbed your wrist. “Wait!” You turned back to meet Sirius’ warm eyes and felt like instantly melting to the floor. “Take this.” He handed you a small blank piece of parchment, you turned it over but there was nothing written. Sirius smiled at the confusion on your face.
“What am I meant to do with this?” You said to him with utter disbelief and confusion at such a gift. Sirius just kept smiling and even bit his lower lip as he shrugged again.
“I dunno? Just set it on fire, I guess.” His smile was so mischievous and wide that your suspicions heightened greatly. He backed away towards the grand staircase with one last wink as you still stood confused.
You felt a little like you were going crazy as you carefully set the parchment alight but instead of burning as would be expected, the parchment instead revealed a message in scribbled writing.
Will you go out on a date with me?
(ps. You can’t bring any books if you do)
It was so simple and sweet that it made every butterfly in your stomach flutter like mad. You kept a smile on your face for the rest of the day and even tucked the note into your robe pocket, so you could give him your reply.
When you saw him next in the great hall, you walked over to him and his friends. Remus and the other boy, Peter, you thought his name was greeted you as did James whilst Sirius just smirked and winked. You handed him the parchment back with a firm kiss to his cheek. All his friends made a chorus of ‘wooing’ noises as you walked away, and Sirius told them all to shut it as he read your reply, written carefully in ink.
Of course! Meet me at 5 outside the entrance hall.
(ps. Just one? If not, then you have to let me touch your hair again and tell me how you get it so soft)
Sirius was pleased that you didn’t have a book with you because you knew you wouldn’t need it. You often used reading to escape and you knew you wouldn’t have to do that with Sirius. He did let you run your fingers through his hair and once more when you kissed because although, he would probably never admit it, he loved it when people played with his hair especially you and that feeling combined with the one of your lips was one he could never forget.
