Sirius Black was a womanizer.

 

Well, that was one way to put it, anyway. There were others, but they weren't so polite. The point was, Sirius had been with a lot of girls. Peter wasn't really keeping track - really, he wasn't, it wasn't like he was keeping a list or something - but he knew that it was an impressive number. A number that put the rest of the Marauders to shame.
