Title: August 1 (1/1)
Characters: Sirius Black, Kreacher
Summary: Two birthdays.
Sirius remembers his 11th birthday vividly. He was excited that it had arrived, that he could finally head off to Hogwarts just a month later.
Awakening early, Sirius could barely contain himself as he bounced out of bed and to the armoire. Dressing quickly, he forced himself not to glance towards his new Hogwarts trunk, bought just the day before in Diagon Alley. The moment he was dressed, he looked over at the trunk and found a single wrapped present on it. He quickly ripped it open. Inside was a green pennant with silver lettering on it, spelling out the house of generation of Blacks- Slytherin.
Kreacher hobbled out from his nest, not exactly glad for another day, but glad that nobody else was around to mess up his Mistress’ house. Coming across the little calendar that Master Potter’s mud blood friend made for him, he noticed that it was Young Master Sirius’ birthday.
“Oh Mistress, today your traitor son would have turned 41,” the house elf muttered to himself.
With Harry finally absent, Kreacher hobbled up the stairs to Sirius’ old room and started snooping through the old items. In the very back of the bottom drawer of the armoire, he found an old forgotten pennant.
