Caught in the act
Scorpius and Lily were doubled over in a drunken laughter. They heard footsteps of students approaching the corner.
"Shhh," he said, brushing his fingers over her lips." They might hear us."
"Shh yourself, Mal-Foil," she said, shaking his hand away, and pressing hers over his lips. He playfully nipped at them.
"What did you call me? Mal-foil?" Scorpius grinned.
"Yeah, you foiled my plan of having a nice, quiet afternoon."
"You should thank me, then. You don't do nice and quiet."
"All in good time, sunny boy."
"You really are drunk."
"How did you guess?" Lily laughed.
"I'm really drunk, too."
They laughed again, but stopped when they again heard students approaching.
"We need to get in." Lily whispered, pointing to the Shrieking Shack.
"Come on, then." Scorpius pulled her towards the Shack. They wobbled and staggered, still laughing, but quietly, so. Apparently, they still had enough senses between them to realise that they might get caught.
Lily pointed her wand at the wall of the Shrieking Shack and performed a non-verbal spell. A door swung open.Scorpius raised an eyebrow.
"You can do a non-verbal?"Lily shrugged.
"Apparently, I'm a genius."
Scorpius laughed. "I believe you."
They got inside and swung the heavy door shut, having to lean on it. Lily muttered a spell again to ensure that the door was securely shut. Panting, she turned around to press her back against the closed door.
How she managed to sneak in such muggle stuff past the nosy caretaker, was beyond Scorpius. "Love to."
Reaching inside her robe, she took out a cigarette. As she did so, her robe revealed a little bit of her legs.
Scorpius grinned. "Nice"
"Thanks," Lily smirked, "Now, shut up and smoke."
She handed over the cigarette. As he placed it in his mouth, Lily took out her wand and muttered an incantation to light it.
"Thanks," He said, and proceeded to take the first drag, and then groaned in pleasure.
"You missed it, huh?" Lily asked, looking at the cigarette.
"Yeah, well, so did I." Lily reached out to take the cigarette from his mouth and took a drag herself.
"Mind?" She turned to him, fixing her eyes on him.
"Not at all." Scorpius smirked. As soon as she was done, he took the cigarette from her."My turn."
Lily turned aside to exhale the smoke. They were both leaning against the door now. Scorpius was grinning at her.
"You know, I quite like you, Potter."
"I know." Lily grinned back at him, and reached out to pull Scorpius by the collar, nearer to her. It brought them close, so that they were only inches apart and they could only gaze at each other's lips. "I quite like you."
She kissed him on the cheek, before taking the cigarette from him.
"Easy, Potter," He said, looking down at her. Their lips were just inches apart.
"I'm not." She winked, and took another drag.
Scorpius was smirking down at her."I know."
He took the cigarette from her, and again leaned in a little closer, the cigarette in his hand forgotten. Lily raised an eyebrow, but then leaned in herself, keeping her gaze locked with his. She took the cigarette out of his hand, but did not use it. Scorpius reached out, but, instead of the cigarette, caught her hand, and slowly stroked his thumb against her palm...…
The cigarette dropped to the floor. Then, Lily reached out to grab his collar, again, and pulled herself closer, so as to press her lips against his, and they kissed.
Again.And again...They broke away, gasping for breath."Mind?" Scorpius asked, softly, resting his forehead against hers.
"Not at all." Lily said, even softer. Her fingers threaded through his white-blonde hair. "Not at all."
Scorpius wrapped his arms around her waist, pulling her tighter against him, just as Lily threw hers around his neck. They leaned in again, and this time, they did not break away. They deepened the kiss and Scorpius felt Lily moaning against his mouth. Or perhaps it was him. It didn't matter.
They worked up a frenzy, and got so caught up in it, that they didn't hear a pair of footsteps coming nearer...
"Scorpius!" A voice shouted and Scorpius was thrown backwards. Lily turned around to see Albus standing near the stairway of the Shack, his wand held out.
"Next time, get a room?" Albus smirked.
"We did." Lily retorted.
Scorpius raised himself a little from the ground, groaning in pain. "Albus, mate, let me explain-"
"Please, Scorpius, I don't need to hear the details."
"Shut it, Albus. It was nothing," Lily said, calmly. "And it is none of your business."
"Whatever. Just get your arses outta here. The feast is about to start."
Lily glared at him, and opened her mouth, probably to argue further, but then, somehow, thought better of it and walked off, glaring at him as she passed him.
"I'll talk to you, later," she said. She turned to Scorpius who was still on the ground.
"You coming, Scorpius?"
Scorpius glanced at her, then at Albus and then back to her again. "In a minute…"
Lily shook her head, and stormed off.
Scorpius sighed, watching her leave and warily, turned to Albus."Help me up, will you?"
Albus walked over to him and gave him his hand. Scorpius climbed to his feet and smiled awkwardly. "Thanks, mate."
"No problem." Albus turned to go but, then, stopped, turned around again, lifted his fist and punched Scorpius in the face.
"OW! What's that for?" Scorpius yelled, clutching his nose.
"For fooling around with my sister, mate."
Scorpius shrugged. "I guess I probably deserved it."
"Yep, that's the spirit." Albus said, with a faint smile. "Come on, now."
