It would be exactly like Willow to want to have a relationship with him. Willow chided herself on those thoughts. Sirius wouldn't want that, and already was nervous because of what he believed her blood was. Oh, if she told him now maybe it would be different.
After the diner she took him to the music store where there were both instruments and records. There was a Styx song playing in the background while many people were gathered talking about the music.
"This probably would have been your scene if you had been raised muggle," Willow said, scanning for some Pink Floyd. It was more out of date now, but it was a favorite for her. After this there was little else except for wandering.
"So, after this...what do you think about a second date?" She asked, partially hopefully and another part not. "It won't crush me if you say no. This has been fun and I've enjoyed this time with you."
It ended up that he was awful at this game. The bowling ball went in the other lane twice and there was more gutter balls than anything. He was bloody awful but found this to be the most fun he had in a very long time.
She seemed to be enjoying herself which was more than what he could say before. While there was still this weight to her it wasn't as pronouced now. Even the people around didn't seem to bother her so much.
"This has been fun. Could we do this...again?" Remus knew it was a second date, well, sort of date. He hoped that it wouldn't come off as too bad. While a life long commitment wasn't the absolute goal. He really liked her, and felt a solid connection with her.
Having grown up on and in the muggle way of things, the movie wasn't as alluring to her. It fascinates her and she couldn't help her inward crinfes at the way the writers thought the magical world was. But then she understood it better now and that helped with her being a little disappointed. However, watching Remus as he experienced the film was priceless to her. His interest and curiosity burned and again reminded her of a child.
When the movie had done, the two found themselves at the bolwing alley and getting strange looks from the man who helped them. Blakely had to explain that the show thing was only because different shoes and sizes squeezed the foot in different ways. Though unlike Remus, the girl had gotten her pair right off as she knew her size.
As soon as they got their shoes, the strawberry blonde smiled and nodded. [b "We find balls. But Remus you'll want to make sure the holes fit your fingers and the ball isn't too heavy or light."] Blakely said as she moved to his side and began to look at the balls.
Sirius was still watching her. And for a moment it seemed staring as his mind wandered. What would it be if the two had been together? Or had managed to make what they had had at school work? At those thoughts he had to all but drag his eyes away and began to eat the chips more. He had to stop his mind. No way they could be together with rhe way things were.
"Where would be the next place you want to take me?" He asked as he finally managed to look up at her. His brow was raised and a curious look burned in grey eyes
The movie was confusing, Remus wouldn't lie, but it was fascinating how they thought the fantasy world was. It had to admit that it would be more interesting that way, as well. It was an interesting experience to say the least. After the movie it was time for bowling, which he was excited for.
The person gave him a weird look when asking his shoe size before handing him three to try on. Finding the one that fit he looked to Blakely. "Now we find a bowling ball, yes?" He asked curiously. They all were in different colors that it was kind of picking a favorite marble.
"It's this aristocrats hunting lodge from the 1800's, then burned down and was rebuilt...anyway...it's a pretty place so naturally tourists like to look at it," Willow explained before giving a laugh. His reaction was priceless and it made her feel good. How would it be if they ever got further?
The sudden thought startled her, so she buried herself into the fish. She gave a flush at that thought. "Weird thought...I think I know where to take you next."
The food wasn't like anything he would have tasted before, but it immediately grabbed his attention. The smell was enough to have him wanting and so as he watched the girl lick her lips he could only assume the food itself would be good. Well that and the fact that his stomach was enticed as well and didn't seem to want to shut up as the food was brought to them and soon set before them. Sirius himself went for the fish and let out a quiet moan as it tasted like heaven and immediately seemed to his the spot.
"That would be Dumbledore's way. To want everything in order before everything gets started. And honestly doesn't seem odd to me. The man's seemed fond of the two of you since you got here." The boy said as he popped a fry into his mouth, attention never leaving the londe girl before him.
Since the change, Blakely though she knew it wasn't true had felt a bit alone. Isolated in a sense. It really gave her the sense of how Remus had felt before. But it seemed the two of them were able to be light and to have fun. An understanding that was not shared by many. Nice in it's way, but also left her to wonder what there could be for them later on.
Her cheeks flushed as that thought crossed her mind and she had been staring at the young man to her side. [b "If you think this is interesting.. wait until the movie fully starts."] The girl said with a smile and soft laugh.
Willow ordered the food for them and the drinks she thought he'd like. It didn't take long for the food to be delivered. The smell alone was delicious, the taste would be ever more so. Licking her lips, she went for the fries first.
"Dumbledore told us that there would need to be some enchantments and work done, so it probably will be this weekend," Willow said. Her list of enchantments wasn't as strong, but she was going to be helping. "I'm sure Dumbledore wouldn't mind. When we came, he called us his granddaughters. That was weird."
"Get them a job in a wizard theatre...." Remus mused with a smile. It was a fun conversation. It seemed they were at a place where they were light and knew each other. It was good to know that someone understood him.
Sitting in the threatre was strange but fun. He sat down with the chocolate and popcorn. The screen didn't appear to be much, when the room darkened, there was a sound before an image on the screen.
"That's weird...I like it..."
Blakely had forgotten almost what a movie theatre was like because it had been a long time since she had had the chance. Actually now that she thought of it, the young woman had barely had a chance to do nearly anything in the last couple of years that she truly enjoyed. But she quickly shook that thought away and couldn't help a faint smirk. [b "Maybe if we're lucky we'll find some of those little fire creatures and can convince them to make popcorn for us."] She knew better but she couldn't help her amusement. Even with him being a werewolf and her being half a vampyre it hadn't made her lose her interest in Magical Creatures or darker ones.
Once they had their popcorn, candy and at least for her a soda Blakely moved with Remus through the theatre. The movie they had decided to see had been playing in one of the last theatres and the previews seemed to just be starting. So she was quick to just take a random seat and smiled to Remus. [b "I hope you'll like this movie."]
Sirius had put down his menu as it all truly did sound so foreign to him. But since she seemed to know what she wanted he would trust her judgement. "Going to play it safe and just get the same thing as you do. After all, you're the expert on today." He said with a faint laugh and teasing wink.
The boy could admit he was curious of what the day would hold. He honestly wanted to see the music shops and to be able to see motorcycles up close and personal. Actually the young man wanted to be able to ride one and see if it compared at all to flying.
"Since you found the place and are excited about it can we go there? I'm curious what place you found. And I wanna have claim to a room before all the good ones are taken." Again he was teasing the young woman, but not teasing her about wanting to see the place.
"Oh...I think I've seen that once...but it was popped by these tiny fire creatures. Nasty things to handle improperly," Remus gave a small thoughtful look. He didn't have a lot of money, but Dumbledore was helping, as long as Remus helped act as a spokesperson. "Let's get this popcorn then, and whatever candy there is."
Stepping up, he let her order, since he was likely to sound like a dolt. The person was barely older than they were and looked very bored. Taking the popcorn he had his chocolate and popcorn he was okay.
"Of course, fish and chips with some sort of soda...I guess red creme soda...that's always good," Willow gave a bright smile. She mostly had scanned the menu to see if there was much differences, other than the drinks there wasn't. "What are you thinking?"
The next stop he would love. She'd need to look up the address but a music store with records and instruments. Sirius would probably never want to leave, seeing as she didn't truly exist she couldn't go to the motorcyle place yet but maybe there was ways around that...
"We found a place to call headquarters...We went by there as kids, but this time it was for sale...it's going to be perfect for everyone."
Somehow, Sirius connected with Willow in ways he had not really many others. There was that physical connection or was it attraction? between them. But more than that it appeared when they were able to talk and to actually get past that stubborn pride each harbored that they more alike in a deeper sense as well. And those connections though as great as they could be also did scare him the slightest bit, though he would never admit to it. He just wasn't used to deeper level connections outside the Marauders and so it was all so very new to him.
As her hand took his, Sirius found he rather liked the contact. It was as he guessed to not really lose him as a few times he did nearly try to stray as he was led two blocks from the station. "So with it being the same.. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?" He asked as he managed to finally draw his attention back to Willow and looked at the girl curiously.
Slowly he picked up the menu as he sat across from the girl and began to skim it. Some the things on it confused him and slowly he set it back down. "Do you know what you're going to get?" He asked as he had planned to get what she ordered.
Blakey's attention was caught by his words and she couldn't help flushing herself. What had the words meant? Oh how she wanted to ask but seeing Remus so flustered and sensing it had her not. Besides she wasn't sure what to make of it as it was and quickly finished her own pizza.
When they had come to the theatre, green eyes studied the posters and she nodded. It was adorable how unsure he seemed of the posters. Unlike the posters in the Wizarding World they were staionary. For a moment she was tempted to make the images move but decided against it and looked to him, nodding. [b "That is a sword And it looks interesting. Not one I've seen before..so good choice."] The girl said with a smile as they walked in all the scents hitting her senses as well.
[b "It's called popcorn. They pop the kernnels with that machine over their. Or heat them to make them pop and become fluffy. It tastes nothing like corn."] Blakely said as she led the boy to the counter to get their tickets and also get a popcorn so he could try it.
Willow was amazed to find that they had more of a connection than she originally thought. It wasn't that same with Severus. Sirius was different, there was the physical connection obviously, they were also similar in many ways that she hadn't known. She gave a smile, before knowing what else to do.
"Mhm, exactly," Willow took his hand, she liked that, as well as to not lose him. It was two blocks away by some apartment buildings and various others, just a corner lot with a yellow and black sign. It looked almost the same as when she went with her family in the future. "It looks the same, and smells the same..."
Willow found one of the booths and slid in glancing through the menu to see if there was any differences.
"That wasn't personal. I know some things were, but not anymore, you understand. There aren't anymore boundaries other than the ones of the friendship," Remus said, before flushing, that had been a little bit too much to say. He finished the slices of pizza before thinking on the movie. Much wouldn't make sense to him but it seemed not to her either.
"Alright then," he nodded. Once at the movie theatre he looked through them not sure he understood most of the posters. "Uh, that looks interesting, it has a sword...right? Or I think that's a sword."
Inside was the most interesting smells, he looked to her puzzled. "What are those smells. It's like corn and something else..."
[b "Forgive me if this is too bold.. But I think all of us have. And it's truly amazing."] The girl said with a small, almost timid smile. Still she could not see what others did and still seemed to dwell on things that had passed. Blakely had always been afraid to get close to too many people because when they found out or she gave traces of being able to read them it scared them. And she had to admit she admired those who had become like family. All of them were risking their lives fighting for something they believed in. How could she not join them?
Blakely wasn't incredilbly "stiff" as she had seemed when they had been in school. She had just been trying to be more careful then and struggling through what had been her past and his future. Funny and quite the irony when she thought of it that way. But so very the case. [b "That does all sound fun. But I do get your point that you would want more..."] Thoughtful were her words as she paid for the pizza and then stood, holding a hand out to the boy. [b "Erm since it'll be your first I rather you pick."]
"They were so much different than anything I knew. And just like fantasy did for you they kind of drew me in. To be honest it started with family but then just grew on me." Sirius answered truthfully with a small shrug. To be honest he had never thought about it before and so to give the girl an answer was strange. But also in a way kind of freeing that he could admit it to someone and didn't have to hide it.
When the train slowed and stopped his hand was still on the bar he had been holding. "They push and shove?" He asked slowly, but got his answer as he began to be pushed a little and let go of the bar, quickly following after Willow
"You've grown into yourself, haven't you? That's remarkable," Remus commented brightly. It was sad to see that she viewed herself in such a way when there had been loyal friends and family, even more now. Most wouldn't place themselves in the Order of the Phoenix without a second thought.
"Actually...I'd really like that...thank you," he nodded surprised at how easily she went with what he suggested. "It was fun, quidditch, games, causing chaos but seeing more was on the list. I was more limited then. So, can you pick the movie?"
That really was one of the sweetest things that Willow had heard. She gave a soft smile to Sirius, normally that she reserved for Severus. "That's amazing. And it must be a lot of fun," she said knowing the couldn't get more into it here. Instead she focused on listening to the announcements.
"Well, it's different from the movies...what made you decide that you'd do posters of motorcycles and girls? Other than your family," she asked before hearing the stop and straightened. "Here's our stop. You'll want to exit quickly, people get impatient."
"You should have seen him before. When we first tried to befriend him he tried to push us away. By some miracle we were able to get him to let us be friends with him but he still tried to keep us at arms length. When we found out we were like 'He's our friend wheter he likes it or not and we're gonna be there'. " Sirius explained, the faintest of red rising in his cheeks at her words of having a heart. Only did he shrug as he didn't have a good comeback, not did he really want to ruin anything. He liked her and so wanted them to have a nice time.
Again the young man gripped onto the railing so he wouldn't fall. It amazed him how easily it came to Willow. But he had to remind himself that this was her world and he in a sense was a visitor. "So basically an eacape that captured and allured you. For me I guess there is watching Quidditch and having spent the time at the Potters'. When home it was terrible and I have no good memories there." He explained quietly.
Blakely laughed softly and shrugged. [b "If not got my foot in the mouth.. It was more I didn't have a good grip on it and well it took its toll on me. Often when we would go out and be around too many people I would get drained and be ill as a child."] The girl explained and stirred her drink with her straw. She could sense a change in Remus and it confused her, but still she said nothing of it.
[b "You know it's still early enough we could catch a movie before going bowling. That is if you really want to?"] Her words were thoughtful and another small smile came to her lips. [b "Did you enjoy the time with James and his family? Or were you always wanting to do more?"] She was still so curious and bit her lip as she asked. Even if things were better between them and they were much closer than they had been, Blakely still remembered how he had been the night he had snapped at her for wanting to know too much.
"I do and it's very admirable to do that for a friend. There you go showing you have actual feelings and aren't a complete arse," Willow gave a small laugh. She hadn't realized that until Christmas when he had saved her from her sorrow. He was a good person. She just wondered if she was supposed to feel that close feeling like she did with Sev instead of just admiration and physical.
"Just one more stop," Willow said shifting her feet for the stop and go like an expert. "The movies and books had it all wrong but it was the idea you could change the world with a sword. Instead of fighting to keep my money from my sisters there was more. What about you?"
"So, it's always gotten you the foot in the mouth with people, then?" Remus asked. By now he was over having a secret over her or keeping a distance. He wanted a friend, he wanted a partner, he wanted more even though he was what he was. She really had pushed him to that point and he was thankful she did.
"Maybe you could take me to a movie sometime. I do understand that, but it'd be fun to do. And the beach...we didn't go anywhere during the summers and then I spent some of the time with James' family," Remus explained.
Blakely picked some olives off her pizza as she listened to Remus as he spoke. A soft smile traced her lips and she was thoughtful before she spoke again. [b "I have always been. Being the empath kept me away from people and feeling like I couldn't be around a lot of people. And those I did get close to they ended up pretty much my life. It's funny explaining it because I never really talk about it and try not to."] She admitted and then nodded. [b "Lily is right about the movies. Most of them are based on books.. though some are very well made, others leave much to be desired and change the books too much. Personally I like being able to picture characters and stories my own way rather than being told what you're seeing."] Again she was completely at ease in telling him. It was nice to talk about the world she had known.
Slowly she nodded, finding it cute how curious he was. Again it seemed like a child. Funny that she would think that way, but she did. [b "A couple of times my family and Willow's did joint summer holidays where we rented a beach house for the week. There was swimming, shell collecting, and even sand castle building... But once we entered Hogwarts is kind of stopped because it was like they were afraid of something."] She said quietly and shook her head. [b "Have you ever been?"]
His words had been meant to be a hint without telling her and he nodded. "So you get it?" He asked and smiled when she kissed his cheek. For a second at her next words, Sirius was confused. Or he was until the train lurched forward and he near lost his balance. "So that's what those words meant." Sirius said quietly, gripping the bar.
Being on the train with all the muggles was odd. But in its sense nice too. There wasn't anything to worry about and it was a chance for adventure. He also had to admit the speed was fun because the Hogwarts Express though quick wasn't even this fast. "So where did you say we were getting off?" He asked as the train slowed at another station to let more people off and on.
"Can you tell me more about why this world fascinated you so much? And the movies and the books? Like what makes movies so interesting?" He asked, truly interested. The boy obviously had no trouble in asking her questions.
"It sounds like you've always been a quiet person. That's understandable, I guess I always have been, too. What about movies? Lily talks about them sometimes says its like our books but it all moves," Remus said curiously. This one tasted good, he didn't care for mushrooms and there was something that Sirius had him try once.
"Have you been to the ocean before?" He asked curiously. He wished that he would stop asking but he was not able to really stop.
"I, uh, think I have a clue what you can do. And thank you," Willow leaned up and kissed his cheek softly. "Though, you might want to hold onto the bar right there..."
As she said that, there was the annoucment before the train lurched and started speeding to the next station. They'd go two stations before getting off. This felt good, all without the fear of Death Eaters.
"I've always been interested in this world...It was a big thing with these fantasy movies, then some books...so I read those, I learned card tricks and other things. But otherwise it was normal interests, movies, music, boys...and fantasy."
