Sirius lounged in the best seat by the fire right after dinner, waiting for his friends to come up. Bored, he'd taken to contemptuously watching the scene in front of him: some mind-bogglingly stupid conversation between First or Second Years. He glanced at the clock every now and then, wondering where James was.

Let's all get up and dance to a song that was a hit before your mother was born, he sang under his breath -- then realized what he was singing and mentally cursed James and his bloody Beatles records. A wiggle of his foot, a tap of his finger. Sirius Black was bored and restless, and was quickly getting tired of it.

Pushing open the portrait door that led into the Gryffindor common room, James laughed quietly at something Moony had said as they climbed through the door. The room was warm, the fire alight and welcoming from the cool air in the hallway behind them, and he noticed Sirius already sprawled out beside it, glaring in the direction of a group of Second Years holding a discussion about the best tasting candy at Honeydukes. Christ, did he and his mates have conversations like that when they were that age?

Nodding at Remus, who'd gave a vague head tilt in the direction of the boys dorms, a signal that he was going to put his books away before coming down, James made his way towards the black-haired boy by the fire, plopping down in the seat opposite him before stretching his legs out to kick the side of one booted foot, a grin on his face as he kept his eyes on his friend's face. "You looked enthused."

"Very," Sirius said dryly, nudging his head at the Second Years and making a face, but the next moment he'd sprung forward, demeanor completely changed, eyes locked on James'. "Guess what I have for you?"

James blinked at the split-second change in Sirius's attitude. Sometimes, he could swear that the boy was schizophrenic or at the very least, bi-polar. Raising in eyebrow in suspicion, he dead-panned, "A pony."

Sirius laughed. "Actually, close. Guess again." He bit his lip -- restraining his grin, waiting to unveil his surprise.

Sirius looked almost giddy, and his laugh was pretty much infectious that James couldn't help the small smile that worked its way onto his face, "Close, huh? Hmm. Snape in detention forever? Snape humiliated with photographic proof? No homework for a year? It's finally James Potter Day? Lily Evans has agreed to marry me? Instead of a pony, you bought me an elephant because an elephant would be cool... Tell me when I'm getting warm."

"You were warmer with the pony," Sirius said, still toying with his lip, trying so hard not to grin. "Give up?" He loved moments like this, when he had every single bit of James' attention. (You are pathetic, Sirius Black, he told himself, but then himself told him to shut up.)

He tried not to let Sirius's grin effect him, but it was hard. When Sirius was happy and excited he seemed to spread that good mood around until just about everyone was smiling about one thing or another. Stretching his legs out, he nodded as he tried to keep his eyes off of Sirius's lips, "Yeah. All right, I give up, mate. What is this fantastic surprise? It better not be anything lethal unless you tend to use it on Snape or unsuspecting first years."

Grinning broadly now, Sirius reached into his bag and took out a very ruffled-looking duck.

Jumping back, immediately, James's eyes went wide, "Bleeding Christ, Sirius, why the hell are you carrying around a fucking duck?"

Sirius smothered his entirely-too-pleased-with-himself-grin and sat back, entirely too pleased with himself. "Found it." He bit his lip again. "Thought you might like it."
