RP: James & Sirius
Who: James & Sirius
What: James has been very restrained with his news, just so you know
Where: Sirius' room
When: 9th June, far too late
It had been a decent hour by the time they'd got back from dinner with Harry, and it was even later still when James found himself staring at the dark canopy above their bed while Lily dozed against him, absently running his fingers through the strands of her hair which were falling across the pillow. He wasn't sure what was keeping him awake - Godric knew there were plenty of options to pick from. But there was only one he could do something about now. Merlin, he figured he should probably get some kind of medal for holding out this long, to be honest...
Glancing across at sleeping Lily, James carefully rolled away and slipped out from under the blankets. Being as quiet as he could, he grabbed some pyjama bottoms and a faded t-shirt from a nearby armchair and started to shrug them on. He was out the door almost before he'd pulled the shirt over his head, shutting it carefully behind him and racing up the staircase towards Sirius' room.
"Sirius?" James popped his head around the door without bothering to knock, somewhat put out to be met only with a lumpy pile of blankets. That seemed unfair. Why should he be attempting to sleep when James was clearly very awake? "Oi," he said, stepping into the room and raising his voice a fraction as he started towards the bed. "Sirius? Sirius! Padfoot!"
The final announcement was teamed with a rather hard poke to the Sirius-shaped lump of bedding. With a grin, James bounded up and plonked himself down quite hard on top of him, giving a little bounce for good measure before sliding off to sit on the part of pillow that wasn't currently occupied by Sirius' head.
