Sirius made his way through the great hall and forced his way in between James and Lily to sit on the bench. They’d been holding hands and giggling, of all things. Sirius grinned and leant on the table, wagging his eyebrows at the two. “Hello Head boy. hello Head girl. Isn’t this cosy.” He turned to James. “Missed you on the train…you know Peter ditched me and Moony for a girl. A girl.” He shook his head and turned to ruffle Lily’s hair. “You’re looking gorgeous as usual Evans. The badge suits you.” He winked at her and sighed happily. In truth, though he’d enjoyed his time at the Lupin cottage immensely, being back home and having spent the entire journey with Remus had put him in an extremely good mood. He glanced at James and picked at the roast potato still left on his plate. “Sorry I didn’t write more over the Summer… Remus’ dad was using his owl pretty much everyday and I spent most of my time…uh..with a big black dog that was constantly around.” He pulled a face. He still smelt a little like Padfoot. “Missed not seeing you all Summer, ” he gave Lily a side glance, “Though I’m sure you made up for having a room to yourselves…” He chuckled wickedly and helped himself to the rest of James’ pumpkin juice.
