"Just tell her the truth, mate," James whispered.
“I’m sure she’ll understand,” Remus agreed, “She’s strict but she has a softer side.”
“No,” Sirius gently replied, “I’m not telling her. I’m fine. Honestly.”
“No offense, mate,” Peter murmured, “But that’s what you said earlier today. The next thing I knew, I was being rushed to the Hospital Wing with a swollen eye and a broken nose.”
Sirius sympathetically frowned and said, “I’m really sorry, mate. I don’t know what came over me.”
After all, Peter had just been trying to cheer him up. Normally, Sirius would have loved listening to someone bash the foul Slytherin name. But when he had heard Peter kindly whisper that they were all cowards…he had leapt from his desk…punches had been thrown…Professor McGonagall had shrieked for him to stop…James and Remus had pulled him away…
Peter now frowned and muttered, “S’alright.”
“You were in shock,” Remus patiently explained, “You still are.”
“Tell Professor McGonagall what’s going on,” James urged, “You can go to the Hospital Wing.”
“I’m fine,” Sirius calmly repeated.
“Sirius,” James quietly said, “You can’t just ignore this.”
“I’m fine, mate!”
Sirius made his way down to the Deputy Headmistress’ office. Professor McGonagall was still furious. She gave him quite a harsh lecture but her words fell upon deaf ears. Sirius slumped in his chair, his mind buzzing.
“Mister Black? Are you listening to me?”
He closed his eyes, suddenly wishing that she would just go away. The room was much too hot, much too small, and he was not in the mood.
Finally, he found himself barking, “Will you get on with it already?”
He opened his eyes and saw that she looked quite startled. He immediately felt a pang of regret.
“What on earth has gotten into you!?” Professor McGonagall cried.
“Just leave me alone,” Sirius snarled, “I showed up for your detention. I agreed to have fifty points be deducted from Gryffindor. What more do you want from me?”
“I want you to tell me what’s wrong.”
Sirius gave a start at her gentle words.
“You only get like this when something is troubling you,” Professor McGonagall softly pointed out, “What is it, Mister Black?”
“I’m fine,” Sirius muttered.
“Does it have something to do with your family?”
“Mister Black, talk to me.”
“No,” Sirius evenly said.
“Nothing you say will leave this room.”
“I highly doubt that.”
He might as well have been sitting in the center of Hades. It was way too hot.
“Just leave me alone.”
His throat ached and his eyes were beginning to sting.
He broke down. Hot tears streamed down his cheeks and his body shook with sobs. Professor McGonagall was at his side in an instant, putting a comforting hand on his shoulder.
“Regulus,” Sirius whispered.
“What about him?”
“He’s a Death Eater.”
oh my fucking god

sitting in silence with your best friend is actually really nice because youre together and youre just happy to be together even if the both of you are just scrolling through tumblr and twitter because you occasionally point something else to the other person and laugh and maybe talk but youre just comfortable and together and thats enough
