I should probably say something other than simply posting yet another old drabble, dredged up from the depths of my computer. But I have nothing to say. I've been in a snit for the last four or five days, probably brought on by a combination of the weather and a slight migraine gnawing at the edges of my head.
Title: Hawaii Sun

A/N: Written for Prongs over at the SiriusxJames YahooGroups. She asked for something with the
boys in Hawaii, set in the summer.
“So what do you want to do today?” James asked, bouncing himself down on the queen-sized bed that Sirius was currently lying on. When Sirius didn’t answer immediately, James insisted on persisting, listing potential activities and counting them off on his fingers as he went along. “Try surfing? I figure that if Muggles can manage it, so can we, even if we do use a charm to stick us to that board thing. The Muggles won’t notice, I’m sure, so we shouldn’t have to worry about the Secrecy Act. Maybe see if we can find one of these luaus that everyone talks about? Or how about we just spend another nice, relaxing day at the beach, sunbathing while the waves lap up on the shore.”
James automatically ducked the pillow he knew would be thrown in his direction, laughing as Sirius gave him a two-fingered salute.
“Fuck off,” Sirius said succinctly (even if it was still into his pillow) in case James picked up on the sentiment already.
“Come now, Sirius,” James wheedled. “We’re in Hawaii and it’s too gorgeous a summer day to spend indoors.”
“Fuck. Off.” Sirius finally lifted his head for the extra emphasis,
exposing his lobster-red face to James, which only sent the other boy into gales of laughter once again.
“Don’t I get any sympathy?” Sirius pouted.
“You’d be doing the same if it were me who was stupid enough to not wear sunblock and spend the day in the sun. ‘Oh, no,’” James said in a bad imitation of Sirius, “ ‘I don’t need that stuff. I never burn.’ Never burn, is that right?”
“Shut up.” Sirius buried his head again. “And stop mocking me. This is painful. You wouldn’t believe how painful it is.”
“It’s your own fault,” James said mercilessly. “And now I have to suffer. I’m in Hawaii! I want to go out and enjoy the sun! We never see the sun at home. Why do I have to suffer simply because you’re suffering?”
Sirius gave the question due consideration, which really wasn’t much. “I can think of a reason to stay indoors,” he said, trying not to wince as he raised his eyebrows suggestively.
James smiled naughtily. Suddenly spending the day outdoors didn’t look so appealing after all.
