HP stories following Canon but PRE-OotP >> Quidditch Romance by nitemareb4krismus

Simple Text - To view MORE chapters use the chapter jump box to the right.
The large circular room was silent except for the scratching of a quill on paper. The floor was covered in many crumpled pieces of note book paper, broken quills, and empty ink bottles. A small vanilla scented candle flickered on the only piece of furniture in the room, a desk. On the desk lay a few more crumples of paper and a wand.

Chase crumpled up another piece of paper and threw it on the floor. There was no way she would be able to write to her mother and father and tell them that her Aunt didn’t want her to return to Hogwarts for her second year. After a few more scraps of paper were thrown away, she finally came up with the correct letter to break the news.

Dear Mummy and Father,

How is your Auror training? I hope all is well. I am so proud of you, you will protect the wizarding world, and the muggle world for that matter, from the rising threat of Lord Voldemort.

On that note, Aunt Rachael says she would rather me not go back to Hogwarts this year.She said that you two are fools for hoping to defeat him and she would want to keep someone alive, as if Hogwarts will be over run be Death-Eaters. I have already tried to reason with her but she has made up her mind. She’s says the only way I could go back is if Voldemort is killed in the next few weeks before I go to school, and that’s highly unlikely. Please talk to her, I would like to go back to school.

Your daughter,

Chase Edwards

Chase was happy with that letter. It sounded informative but not mean or wrong. She rolled it up saying “Emaline.” Emaline was her Short Eared Owl, who was very ill-tempered in the early hours of that morning. She hopped over to Chase and attached her beak to Chase’s finger. Chase tried to pull her finger away but Emaline’s grip held strong. Chase tried to swat her but she flew up into the rafters.

“Fine, it can wait until later.” Chase said putting the note down. She got out of the soft, red, computer chair and pushed it in. As she made her way towards the door, Emaline fluttered back down and perched herself on Chase’s shoulder. “So now you feel nice.”

She opened her bedroom door and turned on the light. There was this odd noise outside, making Chase scare easily. Living in the wizard world, you had to be alert 24/7.

“Hold on, Chase, I’ll save you!” Yelled Aunt Rachael as she ran up the stairs, brandishing her wand. She opened the door and doubled over, out of breath.

“Aunt Rachael, it’s okay,” Chase said after opening the window. “it was only a neighborhood car.”

“If you need any help or someone is attacking you, just scream.” She said closing the door.

“Wow, your aunt is paranoid isn’t she?” Sirius said climbing through the open window. “And you didn’t tell her I was here. Why?”

“She doesn’t want me to go back to Hogwarts. How do you think she would react if some mysterious kid climbed through my window?”

“I’m not mysterious, we’ve met before.” Sirius said, sitting on Chases bed. She sat down on the floor.

“In King’s Cross, and she thought you were awkward.”

“How so?”

“She saw all of those girls following you. She thinks you are bad news, especially for me. And she thinks my little sister should also stay away from you, well at least she did when we were still going.”

“Did you think I was bad?” Sirius asked, getting closer to her as Aunt Rachael shuffled past the door, clearly listening to make sure Chase was okay.

“No, I liked you and I wanted to meet you.”

“Which you did on the train.”

“Yeah.” Chase noticed how close they had gotten in this conversation. She moved away a little.

“I’m sorry.” Sirius said, resuming his spot on the bed.

“No, really it’s okay.” Chase said, pulling her knees up to her chest. “Why did you come?”

“To see you.”

“Me? You came to, to see me?”

“Yeah, and meet Matty. You told me about her last year.”

“And she interested you that much?”

“Of course, if she’s anything like you.”

“Well, she’s asleep right now. And I don’t want to wake her up.”

“Can I see her then?”

“Sure.” Chase got up and opened her bedroom door, sticking her head out to make sure Auntie Rachael wasn’t around. She led Sirius out of her bedroom down the hall into Matty’s room. She opened the door.”

“She’s pretty, you never told me she looked exactly like you.” Sirius said stepping in after Chase. Chase blushed profusely.

“Maybe we could wake her up, she wanted to meet you.” Chase tip-toed over to Matty’s bed, sat down and whispered, “Matty, Matty wake up. A friend is here.”

The little girl rolled over and said “Who’s here, one of your friends?”

“Yes, it’s Sirius.”

“Oh, he’s here?” She quickly got excited at the site of him. Sirius, who was still standing in the door frame, smiled. “Hi Sirius.”

“Hey, Matty, how are you?”

“I’m good. How about you?”

“Pretty good. Mind if I sit down?” Sirius said, gesturing towards the bed.

“Please do.”

“Hey, I’ll be right back, I forgot to send my letter to mum and dad.” Chase said standing up.

“I’ll keep Matty company.” Sirius said.

Chase left the room as Sirius and Matty were still talking. She was greeted by Emaline’s soft hooting.

“Are you ready to deliver this to mum and dad?” Chase asked holding the letter up to Emaline, who hooted happily.

Chase tied the letter to Emaline’s out stretched leg and sent her off through the second floor window. She watched as the large owl soared over the trees and out of sight.

As she made her way back to Matty’s bedroom, she heard that they were still talking. She neared the door and could make out what they were saying.

“Okay, I really like her, what do you think she would say if I asked her out?” That was most definitely Sirius.

“Well, Chase doesn’t like dating before she goes out on a date so ask her out somewhere.” That was Matty and they were definitely talking about her.

“What does she like to do?”

“Oh, she loves to play Quidditch. She’s going to try out for the team this year.” Matty said smartly. Chase smiled, her little sister knew almost everything about her.

“What’s her favorite position?”

“Chaser of coarse. Mum named her after it. Dad played Chaser at Hogwarts. He was great.”

“So, do you think she likes me?” Sirius added hopefully.

“I dunno about that, but she told me lots of things, she couldn’t stop talking about you.”

“Knowing your sister, is that a good thing?”

“Oh yes, a very good thing. She either loves you, I mean likes, or hates you. And that’s some pretty deep hate right there.” Matty laughed.

Chase walked into the room. “Hey guys. What were you talking about?”

“Quidditch, what positions we would like to play next year. Was Ema disappointed that it’s so early in the morning?”

“No, she was quite happy to get out and about.”

“Chase? CHASE! Where are you? Please be safe.” Aunt Rachael sobbed.

“Sirius, I think you should go now.” Matty said laying back down.

“How could I get out? We’re on the second floor.” Sirius said panicking.

“Get under the bed! Matty, hand me a pillow and a blanket, quick!” Chase yelled laying down. Matty threw Chase a sheet and a throw pillow. Sirius dived under the bed just as the door knob twisted.

“Matty? Are you safe, are you okay?” Aunt Rachael cried, turning on the light. “Chase has gone miss-. Oh thank Merlin.” She said clutching her chest.

“What’s wrong?” Chase yawned as though she had been woken up.

“Please, next time you decide to sleep in here, tell me so I don’t have another heart attack. Good night girls.” She said striding out of the room, still clutching her chest.

“Sirius, are you okay?” Chase asked, peering under the bed.

“Sure,” Sirius whispered, pulling himself out from under mattress. “I’m fine.”

“Would you like to stay the night…or the morning, rather.” Matty said smiling.

“Are you sure your aunt won’t freak out?”

“Not if she doesn’t find out.”

“I’m not sure.”

“Yeah, come one, I’ll set the alarm clock to 6:30 and we should be good. She never gets up until 7:00 on the dot.” Matty changed the alarm and they all retired. Sirius and Chase slept on the floor while Matty slept in her bed.

That morning the alarm sounded but Matty, forgetting that Sirius was still there , tapped the sleep button and went back to sleep. Aunt Rachael came in ranting and raving about an hour later.

“Matty,” Chase hissed through clenched teeth, “Why didn’t you wake us up?”

”I’m so sorry Chase. I forgot all about Sirius.” Matty whined.

“Young man,” Aunt Rachael screeched, “What are you doing in MY house with your arm around MY niece? Explain yourself!”

“I’m sorry, ma’am.”

“Just, oh, get out of my house! I don’t want to see you around either one of my nieces ever again! Do you understand me?” She screamed.

“Yes ma’am, never again.” Sirius said, standing up.

“Now out! Get out!” She said pointing towards the door. Sirius nearly ran out of the house.

“Aunt Rach-.” Chase started.

“You are not my children but I am in charge of you. You aren’t grounded but you have lost my trust after this, I want you to know. Now go to your bedrooms, I don’t want to see you right now.” She said calmly but Chase and Matty both knew it took great effort to keep her temper from rising. “Your separate bedrooms.”

Sometime later, Aunt Rachael came up and called them for dinner.

At the dinner table that night, there was silence until Aunt Rachael took out a piece of paper.

“It looks as if one of you wrote to your parents, telling them that I didn’t want you to go to Hogwarts this year. Your parent’s both feel that it would be better if you attend Hogwarts, seeing as how it is one of the safest places in the Wizarding World. I cannot deny you that right, I’m only your baby sitter until they graduate from Auror training. You had better be on your best behavior for the next week. Your letters have arrived today.”
