Atsurekino Kurome: Okay I am American. I have made this clear in my other stories… but I felt that I needed to tell people that because I barely know any British slang. What I do know is from fanfics and looking it up. And by the way…. YOU GUYS TOTALLY RAWK! 1,602 views! Out of my 32 stories only five of them have broken that over 1 K mark, with He Makes me Feel like a Woman at over 5 K. And you guys have no idea how that makes me feel! Well okay some of you just might, but I love it when people enjoy my stories.

WARNING: This story will contain OOC moments. I know that the way any of these characters were written they would never do what I have them doing. Especially Harry and Sirius. This is a fanfic.

It will make EVERONYES day soooo much better ^_^ If you see something that could be changed or fixed to make the story better (OTHER THAN DROPPING THE STORY LINE!) Please feel free to send me a PREIVATE MESSAGE. If you are offended by this story, I am sorry. Not really. Unless the original creators of the animes/mangas/books I am using write me to say take it down it will be here until I say otherwise.

She blinked owlishly at him as he pulled back from kissing her. Did he just… he really just…

"Merlin Delphi I'm sorry I don't know wha-" As he started to pull back she wrapped her arms around his neck and threaded her fingers through his hair. Standing on her tip toes she pulled him back down and crashed her lips onto his. She was reminded of and American song suddenly.

So close, no matter how far

Couldn't be much more from the heart

Forever trusting who we are and nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way

Life is ours, we live it our way

All these words I don't just say and nothing else matters

Because really; nothing else mattered as his arms wrapped around her pulling her closer. Not the rain, and not Number 4 Privet Drive behind her either, not even Voldemort mattered at the moment. This was amazing. Definitely better than that kiss she shared with Terry Boot during the Yule Ball. [1]

They pulled apart when they needed to breathe again. Resting his forehead on hers Sirius smiled at her.

"Well now. I am going to pretend I did not see that. And I believe you and I need to have a chat Padfoot." Sirius winced and she bit her lip.

"Oh bugger." She whispered.

"Yes well… I'll be leaving Dora here to speak with Delphi. Come on Padfoot." He was in his teacher mode. Like he was scolding a student.

"I'm not leaving without Dephi, Moony. She's not staying here now that I'm free."
"I didn't plan on leaving her here Pad. We need to talk. NOW." He seemed close to losing his patience. His amber eyes sharp. Moony was close to the surface. Kissing her forehead Sirius mumbled as he let go and apparated away with Remus.

She fidgeted in front of Tonks. The older woman had her arms crossed and she was tapping her foot. As soon as the two men vanished her stern face split into a grin. "Wotcher Delphi! You've had a fun day haven't you?"

"You're not mad at me?" Delphi brightened.

"Oh Merlin no! Delphi I was seven when you were born! Sirius and Remus were both there when I was born! I would be a hypocrite if I was mad at you!"

"But Remus.."

"Oh Wolfie isn't mad. Okay well he is, but he's mad that Sirius didn't say anything to him about it! We both suspected it since the couch incident!" Tonks' hair cycled between colors as she giggled. "We had a bet going on how long it would be before he broke down and said something. I'm guessing this has been where Siri has been vanishing to every other night?" Her eyes narrowed and her hair turned red.

"We haven't done anything! Just sleep!"

"Good. You need to take it slow Delphi. You're not even sixteen yet. And I'm sure that's what Wolfie is reminding bonehead off. Take your time." The metmorphgus tossed an arm around her. "Sides you and me we gotta stick together! We both sunk ourselves some dishy old men! And there will be people who won't like it."

"Mrs. Weasley."

"Righto ducky. She's still tryin' to push me n' Bill together. Wolfie's not too happy with it. And he was especially angry when she yelled at you. She's taken over Siri's house as if it was her own, and she's forcing herself into the job of being your Mum." Tonks held up her hand to quiet the objections. "We know she means well love, but it's gotten to be too much. Did you ever wonder why Bill and Charlie left?" She had wondered… and poor Fleur… maybe she should talk to Ginny about that…

"So come on! Let's get your stuff!" As they turned towards the house Tonks made a face. "Cor this house is too perfect!"

"It's only like that because I used to clean it." She was lucky that Uncle Vernon hadn't come home yet.

"Girl! What's this now?!" But there's Aunt Tuney. "This freakishness is going to stop! The whole neighborhood is talking about you welcoming older men into the house! And if they just saw that display out in the front yard they'll know that you've been whoring yourself!"

"I have not been whoring myself!" She was horrified that this was happening in front of Tonks.

"You've had a grown man sleeping in your bed for two weeks. And I've seen the way he looks at you! Get out of my house I will not be having this!" Before Tonks could do anything she laughed.

"It's funny how you treat me like this when you know full well who he is, and what he would do to you if he heard you speaking to me like this." She sneered. "Remember Aunt Tuney, he's not restricted by the underage law. And I don't plan on coming back. So you'll just have to find someone else to be your house elf." She watched in satisfaction as the woman paled before she trudged upstairs.

"I'm guessing Siri made some threats?" Tonks called after her.

"You could say that." She grinned as she happily packed all of her things. She'd never have to come back… "Fly to Grimmauld Place girl…" she quickly let Hedwig out and shut the window.

She was on cloud nine as she and Tonks left Number 4 Privet Drive. And she was still on cloud nine when they arrive at Number 12 Grimmauld Place. Not even the thought of Mrs. Weasley blowing her top bothered her. Nothing could at the moment. She left her things at the door where the promptly disappeared.

"Oh Delphinia what are you doing here?" speaking of the Weasley matriarch.
Before she could even formulate a response Sirius came into the room grinning rakishly then suddenly snatched her up and pulling her onto the couch with him. She squealed in delight as she tickled her. Everyone watched the scene between the two happily. It had actually been a while since the two had had a happy interaction in this house. They settled down and he stretched out across the couch in a familiar postion.

"Sirius Black!"

"Oh shut up woman this is my house." He muttered as he nuzzled Delphi's hair. "And I feel like taking a nap. With Delphi." Everyone waited for the explosion. It was well known that you did not talk back to Molly Weasley. "You don't like what I do I don't care. You think I'm a shitty parent? I don't care. She doesn't need a parent."

"And just what do you mean by she doesn't need a parent? She is just a chil-" the woman began screeching.

Sirius growled before he sat up holding her bridal style. "I mean that she has practically raised herself. Those good for nothing relatives of hers made sure of it. She can take better care of herself than most people in this room!" He stood up still holding her. "Now since you won't let us enjoy a nap here, I believe we will go to the library. What do you say Bambi?"

"Mmm sounds good to me Siri." She snuggled into him closer. And just as quickly as he had come in he left to go upstairs.

"Delphina Potter!" Molly screeched again. "I am your-"

"Molly." Remus interrupted as he stepped into the room. "You are not her mother. And don't you even dare to claim to be." The look on his face made everyone leery. Moony was just under the surface. And he did not like how his pack was being treated. "If she should choose to be with Sirius you have no say in the matter. Just as you have no say in whom anyone else in this house is with."

"You mean they are actually together?" Hermione asked.

"It is not my place to say if they are or not. Does it bother you if they are?" Remus markedly asked.

Hermione paused weighing her words. She knew that her answer would decide on if she was allowed to be near Delphi anymore. "No. If she is happy that is all that matters. Sirius too. They both deserve every bit of happiness they can get." There was a chorus of agreements around her. "Besides… I figured something like this would happen after the Couch Incident."

"Exactly."

Later that night if someone happened to pass by the library they would hear a soft voice singing pleasantly. Delphi sat on the couch running her hands through Sirius' hair. The fire cracked merrily in the fireplace.

So close no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trust in who we are
And nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

She didn't care what anyone said. As long as she had her Siri, she could do anything. With him here she felt like she just might survive this war. The whole world could turn on her right now and she wouldn't care. Because nothing else matters.


Atsurekino Kurome: for now guys this is the end of this story. I might come back once my other stories are finished and start again on this. But for now it's done. Who knows I might write a sequel.
