Lily's legs moved fast. She passed right on by the library, something in her gut telling her that Riley wasn't in there. She skirted around corners, and took the stairs two at a time, downright determined. Up, up she went, to the seventh floor, where she only paused at the portrait of the Fat Lady, suddenly unable to go any further. She couldly say the password, what was she to do? She was sure now, that Riley was in there, she could feel it, and yet, she was a bit useless.
"R-rumplestiltkin!" Sirius panted. As soon as James had told hims to go off, he had patted him on the back and was off like a rocket after Lily. He wasn't far behind her after all, and when he saw her pause, he shouted for her, passed her, and scrambled into the common room. "Riley?" He looked around. The room was empty, or it appeared to be.
Lily climbed into the portrait hole and hurried after Sirius. She didn't even pause to look. She knew. She made her way over to her window and abruptly tugged back the curtians. She stared up at her best friend's wet cheeks, and climbed into the chair to climb up on the windowsill beside her and grab her to her. She held her close, kissing her head and rockings her back and forth.
Sirius stared, making his way over. He saw the note and reached, taking it from where Riley had it... and he read. As he did so, his expression became more and more angered. He stared at the note, hands shaking. ""Right then. Riley, let's burn this paper of lies and trash. Let's burn it because it doesn't need to exist. You're not a burden. You deserve soooo much, you're such a good person, and a wonderful friend. Your parents don't know how lucky they were. But you know, we're the lucky ones now. Because you belong to us, and there's no way in hell, we're ever letting you go or pushing you away because we want you. I want you. Lily wants you. James wants you. We love you and dnothing is ever, going to change that."
