The Curious Cases of the Bathroom Singing

"Lily? What are you doing?" Albus asked her, but she motioned him to walk forward and be quiet. It was then that he heard it.

"More than a bird. I'm more than a plane. More than some pretty face beside a train."

"Is that dad?" James whispered as he came towards them.

"It's not easy.. to be me."

"Why are you three standing outside of the bathroom when you know your dad is taking a shower?" Ginny asked, coming upon them with a basket of clothes in her hand.

"Up up and away, away from me."

A smile drifted across Ginny's face. "He sings so well, always has."

"..with the clouds between their knees." The water suddenly shut off, and the kids scattered, leaving only his wife there when Harry opened the door with a towel around his waist. He blushed when he saw her standing there. "Erm, hi love." He said, before leaning down to kiss her cheek before he scampered off to their bedroom to get dressed.


Hermione passed by the bathroom on her way down to the kitchen to start breakfast one morning, when she heard something that brought a smile to her face. "She don't know she's beautiful, never crossed her mind. She don't know she's beautiful, no she's not that kind."

Shaking her head, she continued her way to the kitchen before the kids woke up and started running down the stairs for food.

"My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard." Three people were standing outside of the bathroom door looking at it with their eyes wide and jaws on the floor. "Dun dun dun it's better than yours. Damn right it's better than yours, I could teach you, but I'd have to charge."

"I wonder if-."

"Do you think he's-"

A fourth person walked by and said, "If you guys aren't gone by the time he gets out and realizes he forgot a silencing charm again you'll be dead meat."

The water inside the room turned off and the three that were standing there took off running. Seconds later the door opened and a man with white skin and slits for nostrils came out, red eyes searching the darkness for people who had noticed him…. doing that in the shower.

"Ninety nine bottles of beer on the wall, ninety nine bottles of beer." He sang as loudly as he could, knowingly irritating the people standing outside and waiting to use the bathroom.

"Let me in Padfoot! It's my damn house!" James yelled, banging on the door.

"Ninety eight bottles of beer on the wall, ninety eight bottles of beer-."

"SIRIUS ORION BLACK, IF YOU DO NOT LET ME INTO MY OWN GOD DAMNED BATHROOM WHEN I AM EIGHT FUCKING MONTHS PREGNANT I WILL MURDER YOU AND GET AWAY WITH IT YOU SON OF A-."

The door opened, and Sirius stepped out with a towel around his waist. "No need to yell Lils, I'm done." As she passed him to get into the bathroom, she elbowed him hard in the side.

"Ouch." He grumbled, causing James to pat his back.

"Next time try singing Henry the Eighth, then there might be bloodshed." James whispered.

"I HEARD THAT JAMES HENRY POTTER! I HOPE YOU ENJOY SLEEPING ON THE DAMN COUCH TONIGHT!" Lily yelled from inside the restroom.
