James got home. He was really, really, really worried about Sirius. What's gonna happen to him? What did he mean I'll miss you lot? Was that a sing that he's really not coming back? That his father really did meant it? That he said goodbye forever? What was happening to him at the moment? Is he still alive? What was his fathers plan to do with him? Will he just Avada Kedavra him, or will he beat him to death?Dark questions were floating into James's head.

'I should've been more of a friend.' he told himself

'I shouldnt've given up and drag him home with me. I should tell' As he was about to do something stupid he stopped himself 'So that's what I'm going to do? My friend might be dead, so I'll tell everyone all his secrets? He risked his life, literary, to be with me and I can't keep a secret? I mustn't tell. Maybe Sirius is going to escape...'

'Something is wrong with Sirius.' Remus thought as he was ling in his bed.

'I'm sure it was Sirius who sent the message I'll miss you guys, but why? What was he and James keeping away from him? Don't they trust me? But if James knows he didn't find out till recently, so... It was really odd. Maybe Sirius, like him, has a dark secret...But about what...abuse-physical abuse, family, father...is it?'

Remus wasn't sure. It would be awful to believe into something like that and mention it to Sirius and find out he was completely wrong. He made up his mind. He was going to make James spit it out...with a threat.

Prongs!

How are you? Hope everything nice at home. Speaking home and family. How's Sirius's home and family. Heard from him? You had a chance to tell me freely James, but I must force it out of you. No I haven't join the dark side. I just need to know if my theories are right. Anyways tell me or I'll kill Evans...kidding! God I hope I could've seen the look on your face! Tell me please, or I'll write to Sirius and tell him the whole theory of mine, about his father and everything.

You have 24h.

I feel really death eateresh,

Moony

Remus laughed through half of the letter. He was going nuts. He tied it onto his owl. "Take it to James quick!"

SO IF YOU'RE ONE OF THEOSE READERS THAT CAN'T WAIT FOR SIRIUS TO COME, ME: It's not his turn yet -*EVIL LAUGH*-

James heard taping on the window. His head snaped and saw Remus's owl. He opened the window and took the letter He opened it.

Prongs!

How are you? Hope everything nice at home. Speaking home and family. How's Sirius's home and family. Heard from him? You had a chance to tell me freely James, but I must force it out of you.

Moony

He can't be...Remus is forcing him to tell! Remus the mature, clever good boy is forcing him to tell! James had no choice. Sirius might've left the world already, but if he didn't and his father get's hold of Remus's messages, hes's dead for sure and James won't let it happen. He didn't want to leave the house, if Sirius shows up, but he can't explain it in a letter. Remus must come to his place.

Moony!So forcing me to tell? What happened to that good boy? Now what ever you do DO NOT SEND SIRIUS THAT LETTER! NO DO NOT! IF YOU HAVE I AM COMING TO KILL YOU! I can't explain it by writing it down... come to my place and I'll tell you, promise. Marauder swear.

Prongs

PS. DO NOT SEND THAT LETTER!

James send the letter back and sat down, waiting for Remus and Sirius to show up.

**** AFTER A HOUR****

James looked up as someone knocked on the door. Hoping it would be Sirius he rushed downstairs, nearly knocking his mom over in the process. He opened the door and there stood Remus, is face had the most interesting expression. His face was serious, but yet there was a little evil grin on it.

"Hi Remus" James said. It was time... time to betray and save his friend at once... how was that possible.

"Hi James. How's life?" Remusa asked.

"Well I'm just being forced to tell Sirius's secret by a school prefect" James said "I feel week" Remus laughed. They entered James's room.

"Oh and by the way" Remus said "If you don't tell me. My owl is here and the letter is in my pocket" James gulped, as Remus pulled out a letter. James bent down to read it.

Padfoot!

What's going on? What is your father doing to you? Tell me please and maybe I can help.

Remus

James gulped again. If Sirius's father see's that Sirius is dead for sure."What do you want to know?"

"The truth"

James took a deep breath and started talking.

Sirius stepped into the living room, followed by his father. His mother and Regulus decided to go, to visit Bella and sisters. Sirius and his father were alone. Maybe he can get away... maybe it won't be that bad...maybe he's just going to fall sleep...maybe it's for the best...maybe it's best for everything to black out... NO! Sirius mentally slapped himself. First: his father won't have the pleasure, second: he'll leave James feeling guilty for the rest of his life, he can't do that!

"So" Orion Black said "Rather die, than start talking to pure-bloods"

Sirius lifted his head. He was not going to be scarred. He was going to show his father he will never be the same. He will not be that weak. "Yes" he said.

"Stupid, so stupid Sirius" his father said. Calmly, but dangerous at the same time. Suddenly Sirius felt a large hand make contact with his face, with EXTREME force, it nearly knocked him backwards.

"Do you really think I was just trying to scare you?" He kicked him into the stomach, which made Sirius lean forwards, trying to take a deep breath. "Do you know how angry I was, when Bellatrix told me Narcissa saw you on that bloody train with BLOOD TRAITORS AND ?!" He got hold of his hair and pushed his head against the wall, Sirius thought it might crack.

"You are such a traitor Sirius" he hissed and crashed his head into the wall again "You don't deserve to live."
