Sirius looked to Willow as she called her words. He had lost his focus is only for a moment, but nodded as he got back into it. "Coming up!" The young man shouted back. He had to admit he enjoyed the thrill of the fight. All the quick movements and having to think on his toes. A true challenge school had not offered.
He was looking for an opening. But again found he was distracted with Severus' aytention drawn to a specific blonde. Willow apparently was drawn in by the blonde too because she cursed him. Again Sirius had to pull himself back into focus.
Once Willow and Severus went back.to "work", Sirius used one of his special charms. If done right and used properly they would have the Death Eaters on the run.
Somehow it was coming back, so very vividly, the feel of the wand and battle. What bothered her was how quickly it felt so welcoming. She had grown to love the feel of the quick actions and clever thoughts. "Sirius! This would be a good time for a big distraction!" She called out to Sirius, he had his good charms. If they could just buy a moment they could scare them off.
She recongized the flash of one blond haired man. She gave a small glare as he approached.
"So...this is how you repay us, Severus? By joining them..." he drawled slowly.
"And it was so much better," she growled hitting him with a spell.
Severus moved to where he was back to back with both Sirius and Willow. The young man's wand was out as his eyes were on the Death Eaters who were now coming their way. He was sure that it was a fair few and he shot a curse at the first man who had come close to them. "Are the two of you ready to be doing this? This is not going to be like our classes." He said as he watched Sirius block a curse and send one out himself.
As much as he hated Black, Severus had to admit he could hold his own. The other man was relatively well versed in duels. And he was at least thankful they had the help at the moment.
Blakely had gotten back to Remus and Mateo. Her eyes locked with his for a moment before she moved to being at the back of the two men. [b "Scold me later okay...But I just couldn't leave you on your own."] The young woman said as she shot a curse at an on coming Death Eater.
If before Remus hadn't appreciated Mateo, that had changed. The man being a little older than they were, and was actually quite agile. Remus and Mateo had somehow managed to keep them backed up enough to get backup. He had a terrible feeling inside his stomach, and it wasn't because of the first real battle he was in.
Out of the hills came Blakely charging away. Both relieved and giving an inward groan. She would get herself killed for him wouldn't she? "The others are here, Mateo." He said before flashing his wand.
Just like that there was a distraction, as the Death Eaters began parting to face the new backup.
Severus and Sirius were quick to join the girls. Both of them had their wands out as well. Seeing them both so on edge made them worry. But then alos knew that this would come. Dumbledore had told them all that this could and wplould be complicated.
"I think those of us who are better with dueling can distract a small group as the others lead another of their group off. To divide them we would have a better chance." Severus said, cursing as Blakely had run off. He knew where the girl was going too. She wanted to get back to try and help Remus because chances were Fenrir was out as well.
As soon as Willow heard only two sentences she called to Sirius and Severus to come. They could [i not] lose anyone so soon. The thought of losing Blakely sent off a panic in her chest that nothing but knowing that she would be safe as well as Remus.
"It's okay, Blakely, we know what to do. We are very tough to kill off. Are you guys ready?" She asked looking to the two boys. Though the memories were not as strong, she remembered the spells and what to do. They didn't have much time.
Aperating to the battle, she saw them from a distance. "We should create a diversion and divide them up...something like that. What do you suggest, Severus?"
The girl could hear running coming from the way that they had come. And it didn't take long for a familiar scent to hit her nose. Remus..he had come after them. And inwardly the girl was cringing as this was the last thing she wanted him finding himself in. She had done it a few times before and knew what they could do. But these two young men had not. Only had they been told. It were those thoughts that had her frozen for the moment.
[b "I..."] She was about to say something but Mateo's words broke through what it had been. More scents and more of that same icy feeling was getting closer. The man was right. They needed the help. [b "Both you and Remus be careful.."] And with that, the young woman apparated back to headquarters. She was getting Willow, Severus, and Sirius to help.
[b "Willow!"] Blakely called out as she got back. The call had been one of panic as she was panicking.
Remus was still in town, hearing the reports of attacks and strange people. That wasn't good. Death Eaters was here, using an owl from a local witch he sent a message about the reports to Dumbledore. They were out there with just the two of them. Blakeley.
He didn't think twice before he rushed out where they went, wand prepared. He couldn't fight them all if there was Death Eaters.
"It's too late. We need to aperate now," Mateo growled, that predator side coming out. At least Remus was almost there. Looking to Blakeley he knew it was too much. "Get help. Remus is coming and we can do it...go!"
He said keeping his wand level.
He knew she had not meant it when she had called him childish and nearly all bit "pig headed". And he had known she was right in a sense. The young man still did have a lot to learn. It had not been the words that got to him but more who had said them. It was actually because he cared what she thought did it sting. But did he say all of that to Willow? Of course not. Sirius was still too proud to admit all of that.
"I have my moments... But seriously you won't. Come to like you too much so you won't get rid of me that easily." He attempted to make a slight joke. Anything to try and make things less awkward than they had become.
Her next words and question did strike him and hard. Now he knew how James and Remus always felt when he became insecure and even stupid about his family. "It's not your blood that makes you who you are... It's those around you and who you choose to be." Sirius said quietly. And never had he understood those words as clearly as he did now.
Blakely's eyes were still scanning the area around them as Mateo spoke his words. He was definitely right about Death Eaters and their being sent out. But it left her to wonder how. [b "If Fenrir is sent out then we won't have much time...he...he is a bit of a monster. And I mean that quite literally. We have to move."] The girl whispered.
Without thinking, her hand took the man's and she began to pull him with her. She could only hope the others wouldn't get into trouble.
"I also forgot kind, giving and full of life. Most important thoughtful of friends and their safety. I'm really sorry. I don't want to lose you as a friend at all. You're one of my best friends," Willow gave his arm a squeeze.
It was as confusing as that she gave a small laugh at how stupid it sounded. "Um, that's basically it, but it hasn't happened yet. What's it supposed to mean though. Like...with your family?" She asked insecurely.
"That can only mean Death Eaters," Mateo frowned. How would they have known? Mateo frowned moving close to her, wand out. "They don't know we are here yet. It might be good to go a little further."
She was good and it was saving them. He couldn't help but feel bad that she felt bad for herself .
[b "He's undecided about me, really. I know that I have feelings for him... but it is complicated."] She said quietly. It was interesting to hear what back home for him was like. And for a moment she did imagine it. Almost wish that she wasn't so shy to take the chance even.
The girl had fallen silent to her musings and froze when Mateo stopped at her side. Her eyes darted around the area where they had stopped. [b "Colder than it should be...and it's not cat like either...it feels evil."] She whispered to the man, her hand had moved to her wand which was in her pocket.
Sirius looked to Willow as she spoke and gave another shrug. "Some of the things you thought could very well be true. I've not grown up." He said quietly. The usual sparkle in his grey eyes was not there. "I get it...nothing to be aorry for.."
And at her next words his head tilted. "So..the two of you have a Death Eater for a father...and are sisters? And what do you mean you feel like you have evil blood in you? There's nothing evil about you."
"Is that what you think, Blakely? Please, you two barely look away from each other and when you do there's usually a blush. Never seen a pair of shy lovers. In my home we'd just grab the person and kiss until one of the people gave out," Mateo smirked to her. Someone had to say it, if it hadn't been for that then she would have made a bigger move on her. "And what you are is not an excuse, either."
It did feel different around here. He stopped to look at her. " Are you sensing anything, it smells differently." Vampires had good senses, thus why she needed to come out here.
"I'm apologizing because I went off on you saying things about you I know that's not true," Willow said almost exasperated before taking a breath and turned to face him. "You're also my best friend, you know. It's a different beginning but you've been a good and loyal friend. And...I just...I'm sorry."
She couldn't help but feel horrible for what she said. "Sirius, I want to tell you first. Blakely and I found out not that long ago...that first this Death Eater slept with her mom, and when my parents were separated, she slept with the same guy. So, we're not only half sisters, but he's a death Eater. It feels like there's evil blood in my blood, I guess."
Sirius hadn't been back until the morning but even then had decided against going in. He had been back to being him and not the shaggy black dog for quite a while and was merely sitting in the grass which overlooked the rest of the property. He guessed it was nice to be sitting there and just taking in the sunlight. But if he were honest, one Sirius Black was still extremely mopey as well.
When the steps came up beside him, the young man didn't look up. He was more than aware of who it was by how light the steps had been and the soft voice that spoke a few seconds later. Picking at the grass he listened to her words.
"What's there to be sorry for?" He asked, giving a shrug. Sulking. He was definitely sulking.
Her cheeks became a dark red at the question asked. And honestly she wanted to dodge the question as she didn't know how to answer. But she also felt rude if she did that. [b "Remus became my first friend when Willow and I came here... he is sweet and very caring...we're around the other a lot...But I don't know really what he thinks or feels about me.. I mean I know he cares because he helped me through the change and we're close..."] Blakely felt so lame as she truly was stumbling over both her thoughts and words.
[b "What about you..? Do you have a special someone back home?"] Anything to change topics.
"Tomorrow night then, Sev," Willow hugged him again before going for her room. Damn, she really did like him, not in just a friend sense but as in the idea of going on another date with him made her completely happy. Maybe that had happened on the date with Sirius. She really owed him an apology.
She spent some time in the morning looking for Sirius he would spend some time moping. Finding him somewhere outside she sat by him giving a sheepish smile. "I'm sorry, Sirius, I shouldn't have yelled at you. And you were right about Sev, too. I guess I like him in that sense, too. I'm sorry for that."
"It's better than nothing. I can see around town, and you can see about that," Remus said. He really didn't like this plan but it was a good plan. Mateo waited patiently for them to talk, finding some interesting muggle knick knacks. When Blakely was ready he asked if she was ready before walking out.
"So, are you two...a...well...thing?" Mateo asked. "He'd be blind if she didn't notice how beautiful you are."
Usually Blakely was better about keeping it together. But for some reason she was slipping. And because she was, the young woman spent a good deal of time mentally kicking herself for it. Only barely did she hear Remus when the young man spoke, but as his words continued she was quick to tune back in and able to catch what he said.
Green eyes locked on him and she bit lightly on the corner of her lip. The only one who fully knew what had happened and had been able to help her was him. And as much as she would not say it, Remus had kind of become something of a security blanket to her. [b "Are you sure our splitting up like that is a good idea?"] She asked almost lamely. Honestly she knew it was logical, but it still felt odd to her.
When she had accepted his offer of another night of star gazing, Severus let out the breath that he had not realized that he had been holding. Of course he knew she liked the time with him and he did with her but he was still not sure what she felt about him. In some cases, Severus thought she still held what used to be the future against him. "I'm glad you would. Maybe you can tell me more about the stars too?" He found himself asking as an arm went around her when she moved more against him.
For a little while they had stayed in that moment and it had been perfect. But like all good things, it too had ended. Their walk back was silent, but a good silent. It was one of comfort and understanding, and and maybe something more? He tried not to think on that too much and just to focus on enjoying the final moments he had with her.
"Anytime..I mean it. And thank you for coming out with me." He whispered, cheeks a faint red when she had leaned up and kissed one of them. God he was awkward and he hated himself for it.
