“How would you feel about a free trip to France this summer?” Marlene says, but there’s something odd in the way she’s standing, holding herself a little too still to be truly relaxed.

“That depends,” Sirius says, putting his hands in his pockets and leaning against the wall. “What’s the catch?”

On one hand, he does quite like France. On the other, he can’t imagine he’s the first choice Marlene would have for a holiday companion.

“Moody and the Longbottoms are tied up but last I heard they were going to get here as soon as they could.” Sirius pulled a face as he spoke.

“Tied up?” Lily repeated, high-pitched and too loud. “They know we’re literally in a pitched battle in a public park, yes?”

The Marauders' first proper battle against Death Eaters goes horribly wrong.
