Summary: Later that night after Sirius and Regulus plan to meet to take care of Nathan Raines but before the actual meeting.
Marie and Regulus were finally heading back to the Hufflepuff common room. Marie had tried to persuade Regulus that they should stay out longer, but he told her he had an important test in Arithmancy first thing in the morning. She had managed to at least persuade him for another fifteen minutes, but he kept an eye on the time. As much fun as he'd had with Marie that night, the fact remained that she had been flirting with the dumb flying instructor and he and Sirius were going to do something about that. Hopefully Sirius wouldn't m ind if he was just a few minutes late. Regulus had been backk at school for the last week, but Marie and Leanne had only returned from the holidays before dinner this evening. She was telling him about the match she'd been to between the Falmouth Falcons and the Holyhead Harpies over the break. Regulus liked to listen to her tell stories; he just liked to hear her talk. He held one of her hands, but she was gesturing enthusiastically with the other one while she spoke quietly so they wouldn't get caught after curfew. "And then Skyzer went into the most amazing dive, and Harrison tried to get him with a Bludger, but Skyzer swerved and Petzer came up from the side and hit the Bludger back at Harrison and did you hear that?" Marie's voice suddenly dropped to a whisper at the end.Regulus nodded. He'd heard it too. Marie walked over to the nearest closet and flung the door open."Aha!" she exclaimed before breaking into giggles at the scream of surprise that her twin gave as Leanne and Sirius tumbled out of the closet in a very disheveled state.Private goodbyes ruined, the couples said goodnight, and the twins watched their boyfriends walk away down the corridor for a moment, apparently in earnest conversation. It was a pleasant surprise for the twins to see."Does this mean they're actually being brothers again?" Marie wondered aloud as the went into the the common room and up to their dormitory."Heck if I know, but I think we should jump at this chance," Leanne answered."Just what I was thinking - foster the brotherhood with...""A double date," they finished together, identical grins on their faces.
