Bruises and stares

'Get out!' Sirius Black swung his bag over one shoulder and looked straight into his father's eyes.

'I have to go to school anyways,' Sirius snarled, trying to keep his tempter under control. He trembled backwards as he felt his father's fist collide with his cheek.

'Get. Out.' His voice sounded dangerously low and Sirius knew better than to provoke him right now. Without looking back, he kicked open the door and marched the bus which would take him to school, ignoring his father bellowing behind him that he was a disgrace. Sirius was greeted by several people on the bus, all trying to catch his attention, but he wasn't into talking to anyone right now, except for James. James Potter, his best friend, but James wouldn't get on the bus until two stops before school.

Sirius sighed and checked the reflection of his phone to see the damage that had been done. There was no blood, but there was a red spot, which was probably going to end up being a large bruise. It wasn't usual for his father to hit him in the face. Sirius must have really made him angry, because mostly he hit Sirius on spots where no one could see. No one would know how fucked up his family was. His parents and his little brother wouldn't speak about it and he wouldn't either. He was ashamed of it, he was ashamed that his parents didn't love him.

Sirius stared out of the window, ignoring the weird looks from his fellow schoolmates. Sirius would have to lie again, telling everyone he had been in a fight, getting everyone to whisper. He hated that part. He loved the attention he got by being one of the most – probably the most – popular boys in school. At least it made up for the attention he didn't get from his parents, but he hated the gossip. It was like he was a celebrity. There were constant gossips about how Sirius Black was dating another girl, while in reality he had only once had had a date with them, fucked them afterwards and gotten bored with them. They didn't really interest him, or at least, not these girls. He reckoned they were too young for his liking, he supposed he preferred girls that were a bit more mature, though the truth was, he wasn't sure if he liked girls at all.

Sirius Black was a mysterious and loved guy and he had two big secrets that no one knew about, not even James. Of course James knew Sirius didn't really got around with his parents, but Sirius never told him how bad it really was and anyways what could James do? "Oh, I'm sorry Sirius that your parents abuse you and hate you, I will ask them not to and I'm sure they will listen." He didn't see why James should know more then just the minor facts. It wouldn't make him feel better anyways and if there was one thing that Sirius hated, it was people worrying about him. He could take care of himself.

'Pads!' he heard a familiar voice and looked up to see his best friend strolling towards him, his hair a complete mess – as always – and his round glasses shoved up his nose.

'Prongs,' Sirius greeted him and he did and attempt to grin, but was stopped by a pain soaring through his jaw. James looked at him before sitting down in the seat next to him.

'You're okay, mate?' he asked, a worried glinster in his hazel brown eyes. Sirius nodded and gave him a quick smile.

'So how is master Prongs? The new captain, ey?' Sirius gave his friend a little push. James grinned from ear to ear and nodded proudly.

'Yep, now I get the job to command you ladies around,' he said. Sirius laughed a forced laugh and returned his gaze back outside where the trees were flashing by. Luckily James hadn't noticed, since his glance was suddenly focussed on something completely else. Sirius looked up and saw the redhead enter the bus. He rolled his eyes at James who had suddenly turned into a soggy teenager with an enormous crush. Lily Evans took one look at him and decided she would sit as far away from them as possible, but that wouldn't stop James from staring and trying to catch her attention.

'You're pathetic,' Sirius whispered in James ear, but he wouldn't hear him and Sirius decided to leave him at his staring for a while, while he checked his phone on new messages.

'Pete is already there,' he said to James. Peter was also a friend of James and Sirius, though he was nothing compared to James in Sirius' eyes. He was a fun fellow, someone you could laugh and prank with, but that was it. It was a wonder though that James and Sirius had accepted him into their group, he was nothing like them – since both James and especially Sirius were unspeakably hot – but Peter had managed and since he came to much use in pranks and other stuff, James and Sirius didn't mind.

'Ahh Wormy,' James said, finally turning his gaze back to Sirius. Somewhere in the second grade, they had come up with names for each other. They were the most weird nicknames ever; James was Prongs, Peter was Wormtail and Sirius was Padfoot, but they worked and it gave them the feeling of a group, so they kept them.

The bus stopped and Sirius and James both got up, leaving the bus first – Sirius pulling James with him so he wouldn't stay to try and talk to Evans. Sirius was wearing his old, leather jacket, some ripped jeans and his big, black boots. He got his hand through his hair as he set foot on the ground and looked around for Peter. Some girls – standing next to him – giggled and tried to catch his attention, but Sirius was distracted by his thoughts and didn't even notice them, until he almost ran into one.

'Get out of the way,' he snarled and he pushed the girl aside. James frowned at him, but Sirius ignored it.

'What happened to your face?' James asked Sirius slowly as they crossed the grass towards the entrance of the school. Sirius shrugged and looked away.

'It's nothing, got in a fight with Reg.' He used his brother as an excuse more than once. It was normal for brothers to fight each other, well maybe not like this, but it was better than telling everyone his father had hit him because his grades weren't good enough – or actually, were getting worse. James examined him, but decide to leave it with that, for which Sirius was very grateful. Peter was already waiting for them and after a quick greeting, they marched into the school.
