I've known the Marauders for three years now and we're all inseparable. Over the past three years I have grown to trust them and know I'm out in the grounds of Hogwarts searching for them to tell them my biggest secret. Now I know what your thinking, why on earth are you telling them something that could chase them away? well, I trust them completely and I'm quite sure that they wont care. I found the boys under the beach tree by the lake where we always go on a warm day. I walked up to them and sat next to Remus with James on my other side. "hey" I said quietly as I sat down. "hey Rikki" said James who was playing with his snitch. "I'm tired!" I half whined. "lay down then." said Remus, not looking up from his book as he spoke but, he did smile. I layed down with my head in Remus' lap and my feet on James'. Remus moved the book and looked down at me with a smile. "not what I meant but, okay!" He said and we all laughed slightly. Sirius was sitting next to James, attempting to do his transfiguration essay at the last minute, while Peter was lying on the grass just watching James play with his snitch. 'well, it's now or never' I thought and I took a big sigh. "whats wrong?" Remus asked, now giving up and putting the book away. "we've best friends since first year right?" I asked and that got all of their attentions. "yeah" they all said in unison. "and I can trust you right?" I asked quietly. "of course you can!" said Sirius putting away his essay. "and no matter what we will always stay friends right?" they all looked extremely confused now. "yes, of course! whats your point?" Said Remus looking concerned. I let out a huge sigh and sat up off his lap. "I have something that I have to tell you!" I said and now they all looked concerned. "your not about to tell us that your Snivellies sister or something are you?" asked James and I gave a small laugh. "no!" I told him shaking my head. "I suppose I can't really tell you. I'd have to show you!" I said and suddenly James and Sirius looked excited. "well, come on then!" Said Sirius as he, James and Peter stood up. I rolled my eyes at them as Remus got up and then he pulled me up. "I can't do it here!" I looked around. "come on! we're going into the forest!" I told them and they all smiled but, Peter looked more worried than anything. They all fallowed me to forest and when we were far enough in I turned around to face them. "are you sure you want to know?" I asked and Sirius rolled his eyes. "just show us already would you!" he whined and I smiled at him. "fine" was all I said. I closed my eyes and the wind picked up in a small tornado around me with leaves and bits of dirt and twigs. when I let out a loud sigh the tornado disappeared and I stood before then in my normal height but, this time I had slightly pointed ears, a purple dress, gladiator sandals and wings. (the picture by the title of the story is what she looks like) All of the boys were standing in front of me with wide eyes and mouths hanging open. Sirius was the first to come back to normal but, he only said one word. "cool!" he smile and I smiled back. All four of the boys rushed over to me and started examining me excitedly. "so, your a fairy?" asked Peter. Sirius rolled his eyes and hit Peter over the back of the head. "she's a pixie you moron!" he said and we all laughed except Peter. "This is so cool!" Exclaimed James while looking me over once again. "really? you don't think I'm a freak?" I asked and they all looked at me stunned. "what?!? no! you are not a freak!" shouted James and I squished them all into a hug. "I think I just heard my bones break!" Said Sirius and I let them go. "sorry! did I forget to mention that even though pixies look fragile, we actual have super strength?" I asked with a sheepish smile. "yeah!" said James. "you did" finished Sirius. We all laughed and just talked for a while. "so, where did this dress come from?" Asked James picking up one of the loose parts. (the dress is also the same as the picture) "it just comes with being a pixie! every time I transform so do my cloths." I told them and he nodded. "so, is it always this one or.....?" he trailed off. "no, it depends on what mood I'm in" I told them and Sirius smiled. "so, whats this mood then?" he asked and I just rolled my eyes. "nervous!" I answered and they looked confused. "what were you nervous about?" asked Remus. "telling you guys, I didn't want to loose you!" I said smiling sheepishly. Remus put his hand on my knee, Sirius grabbed one of my hands and James had the other. "you will never loose us." said Remus. "ever" continued Sirius. "okay?" finished James. I smiled at them and crushed them in a hug again. "thanks guys!" they moaned and then I heard an "ow!" so I let go quickly. "sorry! I keep on forgetting!" I apologized and they just laughed at me.
