Her hair had been green that day. She almost never went with green, as it made her look sallow, but she’d been messing around while she drank her tea. It was Floo green and curled about her ears.

The fire had roared high and emerald, and she’d turned to see Kingsley’s solemn face. The children were in danger at the Ministry. She’d fallen through the fire and gathered with the rest of them… Kingsley, Moody, Remus, Sirius.

Sirius. Kingsley and he had shouted at each other. Kingsley said he couldn’t come, he knew the rules, it wasn’t allowed. And Sirius had said that he had to come because it was Harry. Merlin, couldn’t they see? It was

In the end, they’d all gone together, Flooing right from Grimmauld Place to the Ministry. They’d been so light-hearted about it. It wasn’t her first fight, but she was a little nervous. Remus patted her shoulder and said sweet things, and Sirius chased his tail, and she’d felt better. They’d burst through the door of the chamber and she’d never felt more brave. They were the Order. They were invincible.

“Come on, leprechaun,” Sirius had taunted her as he ran for the Death Eaters. She’d tripped down the steps, but that was just natural. She simply stood and ran to help. It was odd, considering the clarity she had for most other fights she’d been in. She remembered details from them all… but this fight was just a blur. Flashes of wand light, loud voices, and the feeling of slick sweat down her spine as she fought.

She remembered hitting the ground hard with some hex or another, her skull cracking the stone floor. The world was dark and came back in pieces, first sound, then light, then color. It was as if a light were being cast on one spot and then slowly expanding to fill the whole room. And the light was on Sirius.

He was laughing, his head back, his teeth so very white in his darkly handsome face. Still handsome. Always handsome. She’d smiled at the picture he made there, and she was still smiling when the spell struck him. He’d fallen back through eternity, and she’d laid her head back down against the cold rock of the floor.

It was dark.
