Jar of Hearts

(Sirius/OFC, Marauder era)

I know I can't take one more step towards you
Cause all that's waiting is regret
And don't you know I'm not your ghost anymore
You lost the love I loved the most

I learned to live half alive
And now you want me one more time

James swung his arm around Lily, bending a bit to peck her on the cheek. He turned to Remus and Peter, "Where's Sirius?"

Remus shook his head as he took a sip of his butterbeer, "Typical Sirius, he's trying to chat up Emily Robinson."

Lily looked at Remus, "Emily? The one in Ravenclaw? Didn't he totally break her heart two months ago? He was only dating her for help with Potions, and was seeing Melissa on the side?"

Remus nodded, "But she got herself a makeover over Christmas hols and now Sirius thinks she's the hottest thing this week. But I think he's failing," Remus said nodding his head to a frowning Sirius.

Sirius plopped down in his seat between James and Remus, "Huh. The Black charm is failing. She won't see me. She's apparently singing here tonight. Needs her 'alone time' "

I hear you're asking all around
If I am anywhere to be found
But I have grown too strong
To ever fall back in your arms

I learned to live half alive
And now you want me one more time

The five of them looked up as the lights dimmed in the bar and the spotlight illuminated a black stool. Emily walked onto stage, dressed in a form fitting black dress, her chestnut curly locks flowing over her shoulders, glittering blue eyes standing out in smoky makeup, three inch heels clicking against the floor.

Her red lips moved towards the microphone, "Tonight I will be singing Jar of Hearts by Christina Perri, in remembrance of a relationship that was a mistake."

The other four turned to look at Sirius who had turned incredibly pale.

"She's going to sing about me?" Sirius choked out in a whisper.

They didn't get a chance to answer as Emily began to sing.

And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
So don't come back for me
Who do you think you are

And it took so long just to feel alright
Remember how to put back the light in my eyes
I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed
Cause you broke all your promises
And now you're back
You don't get to get me back

And who do you think you are
Running 'round leaving scars
Collecting your jar of hearts
And tearing love apart
You're gonna catch a cold
From the ice inside your soul
Don't come back for me
Don't come back at all

Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think you are?

James patted his best friend's back, "Mate. You just lost. The Black charm needs some serious rehab."

Sirius shook his head in amazement, "This just makes me want her even more." Sirius was about to stand to speak with Emily when he saw her move off the stage and be swept up into two arms, a tender kiss placed on her lips. When the man's face came to light Sirius fell back into his seat, his eyes as wide as Galleons, his face even more pale.

"Sirius?" Lily asked in concern.

"Emily turned me down…for Snivellus?"

The four whipped their heads around to see Severus Snape smile slightly down at Emily and peck her on the lips again as she smiled and settled herself in the crook of his arm. She turned to look at Sirius and gave him a cold look, before accepting her cloak that Snape was holding out for her, and then stepping out of the bar, still enveloped in the black haired Slytherin's arms.

"I can't believe it. I lost to Snape. A girl chose him over me." And Sirius fainted.


A/N: yea yea, I know that Severus Snape loved Lily. But I couldn't help myself
