summer, finally. All the year we all couldn’t wait for the holidays even if
that meant we wouldn’t see each other for a while. Everyone was just relived to
get home for a while. Everyone except Sirius. He hated home and so I decided to
take him home with me this year. He was thrilled and my parents couldn’t be
more happy. They were so relived that I finally had found some real friends. I
had always been an outcast because I was different, but not in Hogwarts. Not
with the Marauders. They made me feel like the part of something and my parents
were more than thankful for that.
days were a lot of explaining for me. I just had to show Sirius all the muggle
things in our house and make him understand how they worked the best I could.
He was fascinated by nearly everything and I was patient enough to explain
everything to him. I showed him everything, made him try, except for one thing.

it was too big to take it to Hogwarts with me. It was my treasure but I was too
shy to play since I feared to be bad at it. But Sirius was stubborn. That was

it back when he grinned “As you are holding it already…”, I groaned “Just a
short pieces.”, I said and started off slowly. It was a part of Mozart. First I
was afraid I could play it wrong but I got more confident with ever note I
played. It started to feel easy again. It started to feel right. I saw Sirius
starring at me the most fascinated I had ever seen him. His eyes were glowing
when I started to play more and more. I couldn’t stop. It were his eyes that
made me go on. He was grinning happily when I finished the song. “That was
awesome! You have to do another one.”, and this time I just started right away.
Sirius was just sitting there, openmouthed starring at me. He smiled in a way I
had never seen him smile. And his eyes! They were glowing.
me play a few more songs for him. He told me how much he liked the violin. He
told me that he always wanted to learn and so I started to show him how to
play. At the end of the holidays I took the violin to Hogwarts to show Sirius
