To all of my other readers, the story Children will be posted soon. Hogwarts Express, 1977 "I am NOT, under ANY circumstances working with James Potter!" That was what the whole Hogwarts Express heard in the late hours of the morning on September first.

"Lily, please calm down, it's not so ba—" "NOT SO BAD! NOT SO BAD! You are not the one who should be working with that bigheaded prat the whole year!" bellowed Lily. Lily Evans and her best friend Amy were on their compartment on the Hogwarts Express, on their way to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Lily was a very pretty girl: she had a long red hair that hung just above her mid-back. She had a pair of almond-shaped green eyes that reflected her fiery temper quite often. Amy Isadora, Lily's best friend, had short straight blond hair and had a few streaks of red in them. She had large brown eyes that attracted looks from boys when they were sparkling. "Lily! You must listen to me! Obviously Dumbledore trusts him enough to make him Head Boy, and if Dumbledore trusts him Lily, I'm sure Potter wouldn't dare to cause trouble." Amy told her. There was almost a whole minute of silence before Lily answered weakly "I guess you're right". The marauders, that did not heard the last comment, were rolling on the floor laughing, clutching their stomachs. All

except James Potter. James was a marauder, co-leader of their little group of four, the marauders. He had jet black hair that no matter what he tried to do with it, always stayed messy. His hazel eyes were usually sparkling with mischief. However, when he was thinking of Lily Evans, his eyes were glittering with affection. He sat there quietly, while his friends were laughing, thinking. Is that what she really thinks of me? "Oi, Prongs, don't let her get to you" said Sirius still clutching his stomach "You really need to move on Prongs, you know that right?" said Remus, tears rolling on his face "I think she made it pretty clear that she doesn't want you." added Peter, catching his breath "Thanks Wormi, I think the whole school knows it by now." said James gloomily "Anyone who wasn't at Hogwarts at the last seven years anyway" said Sirius "Hey Prongs, aren't you supposed to be at the Heads compartment anyway?" said Remus, as always, acting like the serious and responsible one.

"I don't think I am needed there at the moment, It'll only make her even more furious. Are you sure Dumbledore didn't switch the letters by mistake Moony? This job should be yours," Asked James miserably for the tenth time this month. "We already discussed this Prongs, he chose YOU not me. We all know Dumbledore always has his reasons." "I guess," said James gloomily, still a bit disappointed that Lily thinks of him that way. He knew of course, that he and Lily weren't friends, she hated him with passion, and he, he"Hey Prongs, don't worry, she'll come around some day" encouraged him Peter. "Yeah, when hell freezes," joked Sirius. "Gee, thanks Padfoot, with friends like yours who needs Snivellus and Malfoy?" said James cynically. "Hey, don't bite my head off Prongs, I'm only telling the truth you know" said Sirius. "Whatever Padfoot, I guess I need to go now don't I?" he said, pleading with his eyes they would save him from the upcoming tackle with a certain redhead. The marauders however, seemed oblivious to their friend's

discomfort and nodded. "I'll see you in the next world…she'll kill me. Nice meeting you all." Said James and slammed the door after him. "Whipped" said Sirius and they started laughing again.

*Chapter 2*: Chapter 2: Hogwarts Express 1997
Hogwarts Express, 1997 Harry Potter, a skinny black haired boy, with round glasses that hid his emerald green eyes, walked with his Hogwarts trunk and his owl, Hedwig in her cage to the packed King Cross station. He stopped between platform 9 and 10 and began to run towards the wall between them. Trying not to think. "Harry!" a girl came running to him, wearing a big smile on her face. "Hermione," he said and gave her a hug "good to see you". Hermione stopped dead. She saw that his bright green eyes were brighter than usual. Then she remembered. "Is everything alright?" she asked in concern "Is it about Sirius?" "Forget about it Hermione" said Harry. "Look Harry –" "Harry! Herms!" a redheaded boy came running towards them. Harry smiled when he saw Ron; he snuck a look to

his eyes hanging on one in particular before they were snapped again to Ron and Hermione. "He's thinking it's his fault again" she said. "Stop being such a tactless insufferable prat Ron! It's his godfather for heaven's sake.the rest of the Weasleys. "Nothing Ron. "Herms?" said Hermione sharply "Herms!" Harry and Ron began to laugh. "Relax Herms. "Again? " exclaimed Ron in disbelief. Listen I'm going to find a compartment you two should be going to the Heads compartment anyway don't you?" Ron nodded and with a worried glance at Hermione she said without words "Don'tpush-it-anymore-let's-go-before-he-explodes" "We're off than. "What the hell is wrong with him Herms?" said Ron after they separated from Harry." he said." said Hermione. "What's wrong Harry?" he said after a moment of silence. Maybe you didn't notice that Ron. nothing. walking towards the heads compartment. but Harry's parents are dead since he was a oneyear-old and Sirius was the closest thing to a father and to .

"SHUT UP!" both Ron and Hermione roared." "I can't believe Dumbledore made you head boy Ron! You are acting like a complete fool!" said Hermione angrily. Malfoy looked taken aback and Ron and Hermione took the chance to walk fast into the Heads compartment. "That's a very nice thing to say to your friend Hermione you know that don't you?" Ron snapped again. As they shut the door. "What's all that noise? Weasel King and his perfect Mudblood are fighting? And where is Pot-head?" said the sneering voice of Draco Malfoy. they both bellowed at each other simultaneously: "You don't understand Hermione-" "You have no tact-" "What's wrong with you-" ." snapped Ron "but he has been an emotional wreck for the last two years Hermione.his father he ever had!" "I know that Hermione. attracting some glances from the other parents and children on the platform. he's had to get over that by now.

I know I promised to post this chapter on March 3rd (my birthday). but my father gave me a birthday present and blocked my computer. let's just focus on the Head boy and girl stuff. I didn't start chapter 19 yet. and I don't think I will until I will post all of the story again. Nice of him don't you think? Lily . I hope that most of the people who read that story in the past will return to me. I AM NOT IN THE MOOD TO FIGHT WITH YOU!" Hi Thanks to anyone who reviewed."Look Hermione.

'Messing up your hair because you think it looks cool to look like you've just got off your broomstick. 'But you're just an arrogant.' said James quickly. 'Go on… go out with me and I'll never lay a wand on old Snivelly again. Leave him alone. debating whether he should go inside or not. bullying toerag.

and would do anything for it. try to be nice to her – not like you are used to now – act with her like you act around us – stop 'messing up with your hair' like she said and for goodness sake drop the tone you use to use when you talk to her. it's pathetic. when he voiced his desperation to his friends. read them and then we need to tell them about their duties and privileges. afraid to say the wrong thing. he took the instructions from the table. He wanted her to like him more than anything. he heard from deep inside of his brain what Remus told him last year. "Evans" he said in a voice that tried to sound like his own. There was silence while he read until – "Potter. "Potter" she said sharply "The instructions of what to say to the prefects are on the table. to whom did you pay to get the Head Boy position?" . James made up his mind. You need to act like a gentleman Prongs." He simply nodded. He took a deep breath before he entered the Heads compartment.James sighed. And then.

"Look Evans I don't have time-" Finally snapping at me! I was worried! . But he simply sat there in silence. Why the hell is he so passive now? What happened to arrogant Potter? She thought this is James Potter we are talking about here. he stared at her in confusion for a moment before lowering his head and murmured "No one". "Yeah right.He was speechless. there is no way a normal person will appoint you to the Head Boy position" He was speechless again and simply nodded. She dropped the harsh manner as the hazel eyes bored into her emerald ones. why don't you tease me? Where is the arrogant bigheaded Potter I know?" He began to lose his temper but reminded himself to get a grip. "Say something Potter!" she snapped suddenly. She snorted. anything. Lily lost her temper. he'll be himself in no time. He shrugged. "Just say something Potter. "What do you want me to say Evans?" he said slowly. He lifted his head to gaze at her.

." started James. gasping for breath. Lily."-for arguing with you. "Ouch" "Get off me Potter" "Let go Ron" "What—" The four lifted themselves from the floor. Ron and Hermione didn't need to tell them twice. Ron and Hermione fell to the floor." he said wide eyed. I don't know who Harry is or what are you doing in the Heads compartment. "Holly shit! – Hermione – Hermione – girl – eyes – Harry.. "Look mate. Ron looked at James and asked "What's wrong with your eyes Harry what-" he gasped as he turned his gaze to Lily and saw her eyes. I want to make this year work" voice rising he said "and I don't want to fight with you Evans – " his voice was growing steadily and by now he was yelling I AM NOT IN THE MOOD TO FIGHT WITH YOU!" The Heads compartment began to spin – James. they ran outside.

"Yes Ron! Harry's parents! Didn't you notice that boy looked just like Harry and that the girl had eyes exactly like Harry's? They look just like the people in Harry's pictures! We are back in time!" said Hermione hysterically. lets not lose our temper we need to make sure they won't instruct the prefects and that they will be in quiet for the whole ride – also that they won't see Harry." "This is impossible Hermione unless we hex-" But Hermione was too quick for him. why did we go back in time! What are Harry's parents doing there?" "Harry's parents!" exclaimed Ron. "We didn't go back in time – they went to the future – Hermione what do we DO?" "Okay. "Granger. what—" Malfoy's drawling voice sounded and Ron and Hermione kept walking. Ron has gone white while realization was drowning at him."Ron. "Ron – did Malfoy just talk to us? Draco Malfoy?" she asked. Then Hermione turned dumbstruck to Ron. she already ran to the Heads compartment and cast the Sleeping charm on .

Ron looked at his letter critically and screwed his nose. I'll do it. you talk to the prefects. Sincerely yours." She said "Right.James and Lily. suddenly the compartment began to spin and we found ourselves in the same room with Harry's parents. Hermione walked out the door towards the prefects' carriage while Ron wrote to Dumbledore Dear Proffesor Dumbledore While Hermione Granger and I were yelling each other at the Heads compartment. We cast the sleeping charm on them and we will be waiting to your decision about what to do with them. He . They look like 17 years old and they have the Head Boy and Girl badges." Ron said still shocked at the spitting image of Harry sleeping on the floor. sleeping. "We need to lock the door and send an owl to Dumbledore. Ron Weasley. She breathed deeply when both James and Lily's bodies sank to the floor.

my father gave me a birthday present the day after I posted the first chapter and blocked my computer so I wasn't able to update the next day.

Crazy thoughts ran in his head like crazy thoughts usually do in frightening moments. He escaped from the hands of Tom Riddle five times. What happened? Is there something wrong with Harry? He thought frantically. Even more obstacles than part of the most qualified Aurors had been through. KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK Dumbledore looked out of the window and saw Ron Weasley's owl tapping on the window. A boy that had faces many obstacles. . He must be a victim or a murderer. Five times too many.*Chapter 4*: Chapter 4: It Is Not A Dream It Is Not A Dream Professor Dumbledore sat in his office. wondering about a life of a sixteen years old boy. Killed or be killed. But he is already a victim.

Safe trip. and scribbled a reply. You are to keep them there under the spell. Your and Ms Granger's actions were mature and correct. Thank you for letting me know about this accident. What do you recon they'll do with them now?" he asked looking at her face. Blushing lightly because of the sudden interest of Ron in her face. Professor McGonagall will collect Mr Potter (senior) and Ms Evans from the Heads compartment. A. "Hermione." she said. On a personal note. as his emotional state is not so well. Dumbledore "We did the right thing then?" said Hermione after reading the professor's note. "I don't know. do not let Mr Potter (junior) know about this incident. "I suppose. I-" but Ron was intruded by a sudden knock on .KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK He opened the window. read Ron Weasley's letter for several times before inhaling deeply. Dear Mr Weasley.

said "Harry –" But was saved as the train stopped.the door. and giggled lightly as she saw his ears reddening with embarrassment. can you catch us a carriage? And don't let Ginny or anyone come in. please join Mr Potter on the . "Well. She watched James and Lily lying on the floor and her eyes filled with tears. "Harry. Ron said. Herms and I have some Head business to deal with. Mr Weasley. I believe there is no need for you to stay here anymore. Ms Granger. It's been too long. "That was really some quick thinking Ron." he said and Harry turned confused and bewildered to find a carriage. Hermione. why aren't you coming?" he said with a bit of pinkish color on his cheeks. He opened the door lightly just to see Harry standing with concern etching all over his face.Ginny told me that the meeting was over ages ago. Too long indeed. Just then. "Ron." she said. After a quick thinking. a knock on the compartment's door interrupted their conversation as Professor McGonagall came in. clearly startled by the fact that he was about to enter the Heads compartment.

" she said briskly "Are you going to be okay professor?" asked Hermione in a small voice. not wanting to lose his badge so fast. "But we didn't do anything professor! I swear I just yelled at –" he said in panic. you and Mr Potter came forwards in time. what have you done. Ennervate" she said as she pointed her wand at Lily and James. Ms Evans. . but was interrupted by Lily. "Oh boy. "Professor McGonagall! How lovely to see you here! Absolutely smashing to –" said James with a smirk. I'll take it from here" and gave her one of her rare smiles. "Yes Ms Granger. I think it will be the best if you two will come with me straight to the headmasters' office. what are you doing here? Where is that girl?" she asked The happy twinkle in McGonagall's eyes extinguished as she watched the two fighting. You may cause a little panic among the students.I mean. "Mrs Po. if you be kind enough to join Mr Weasley on the carriages." she said as she glanced at James.carriage. "Shut it Potter. professor. now.

Use the Flooer Powder (the one who can send you to Hogwarts) I expect you in my fireplace as soon as possible. Dumbledore Remus sank into the nearest chair in shock. A."Not now Mr Potter we shall discuss what happened once we will be at the headmasters' office. Dear Remus James and Lily appeared in the Hogwarts Express in the Heads compartment today as seventeen years old teenagers. I have yet seen them myself. yet I want you to come to Hogwarts as soon as possible. Have a safe journey. Remus Lupin read the letter professor Dumbledore wrote him in the seventh time. James and Lily came forwards in time? Remus reread the letter again. drawing a very shaky breath and wiped the tears that had fallen when he hadn't noticed. becoming increasingly bewildered every time." she said sternly. .

If only you were here Jenny. Except perhaps that. "I was completely fine until you owled me. James and Lily were hooked up that year…but other than that… Remus sighed and rubbed his eyes. What do you mean Lily and James are here? I don't remember something like that happened in seventh year…. "If I'm not very mistaken." Remus said. "You don't?" asked Dumbledore. How are you?" said Dumbledore in worried eyes. After a minute of silence. almost by instinct. growing wary "What can this mean professor?" he asked. it means we can save Lily and James." He said in panic. "Remus it is pleasure to see you as always.Why don't I remember this? Remus thought that the seventh year completely uneventful. He thought that the news would hit him hard." . Dumbledore said. he thought. He stood up and grabbed some Flooer Powder from a bag near the fireplace and flooed to Dumbledore's office. in a very concerned voice "You mean to say that this didn't happen before?" "No professor.

The awkward silence that followed that statement was interrupted ten minutes later as a knock was sounded. "Come in Minerva" said Dumbledore The door was opened and McGonagall, James and Lily entered the room. Remus sat quietly in a dark corner of the room, not wanting to startle his seventeen years old friends. "Hey professor, you look a little – well, your beard grew longer since I last saw you," said James with a chuckle. "Yes, yes, we quite missed you here Mr Potter." "Missed me? Professor, no offence or anything, but it was only two month surly—" "You are quite wrong James, the last time I saw you was sixteen years ago, in Halloween 1981."

A/N: Thank you all for the increasing amount of reviews. Btw, this is a rubbish chapter...

7th year; James and Lily, however, are in the future.

Till tomorrow my friends...

*Chapter 5*: Chapter 5: Surprises
Surprises "Professor?" said James in puzzlement. "I assure you I have yet to lose my marbles dear boy," said Dumbledore with a twinkle in his eyes. "Now Minerva," he said, turning to his deputy headmistress "you need to welcome our first years in the great hall soon; I suggest you to be off, as Hagrid was never late." McGonagall's nostrils flared but turned around and walked out of the office briskly. Dumbledore turned to James and Lily. "Now Mr Potter and Ms Evans, would you be kind enough to tell me how did you two arrive into 1997 when you are suppose to be in 1977?" James looked at Lily, who was staring at her hands. Lily heard a small buzzing in her head; and James was bewildered – still, not recovering from the shock of going forward in time. "The thing is professor, er...we don't know," said Lily. "All I know professor, is that I went into the Heads compartment and Lily started yelling at me as usual..." a

chuckle was sound from the other side of the room. James tried to see who was there but he was interrupted by the headmaster. "Yes James please continue," Dumbledore said, his eyes twinkling. "And...And...Well, you see sir," said James, fumbling with the ham of his robe, "I decided today that…er…" James began to blush and Lily looked at him in wonder, "That I'll try to…er…deflate my head a little." Lily snorted and someone laughed hard on the other side of the room. "Hey! I can do it! And who is it there?" James asked, a little hurt that they won't believe him. "You see James, you ARE in the future. So if you please come here professor…" said Dumbledore, obviously trying to hold his laughter. A man came forward; James gasped and held Lily's hand unconsciously. Lily gawked but when she noticed James's hand on hers, she said, "Get off me Potter! I want my blood circulation back! Remus...? Oh my goodness is that you?" "Yes Lily, it is me, want a hand James?" asked Remus

Wow, his hand really felt good on mine... Thought Lily

regretfully Wait! Hold on a minute! Stop! Stop this thought immediately! Thought Lily in appall Are you saying that you want him to hold your hand? Lily mentally shuddered and shook herself back to the present. "Don't play pun with me Moony" James said slyly. But then he realized Remus was there, 20 years older than him. "Wha-Whoa! Moony holy marauder! This is- bloody hell!" James said wide-eyed "sorry professor" he added after he remembered that Dumbledore was still in the room. "I'm afraid I have gone temporarily deaf. Now, please continue your story," said Dumbledore merrily James continued, although he looked like he didn't want to "Well…Like I said I decided to change for Evans" Lily looked at him in disbelief written all over her face.

For me? Why would he change himself for me? He can't have feelings for me right? It was all acting 'cos I'm the only girl who ever turned him down. Lily tried to convince
herself. James continued "Um…I kinda didn't want to make her angry and I just…I just didn't say anything to her until I broke down and told her I'm not in the mood. And then, the whole

compartment was spinning and we fell on this redhead boy and this girl." "The compartment was spinning you said?" asked Dumbledore and he sat for a moment in silence. "Remus, be kind enough to bring Mr Weasley and Ms Granger over here after dinner. Make some excuse to Harry. In the mean while, Mr Potter, I suggest you and Ms Evans to eat your start-of-term feast in the kitchens." "Why in the kitchens sir?" asked Lily. "Because dear girl, you may cause panic between the student body and between some – some of the teachers," he said, thinking of the heart attack Severus will get if his long-lost-crush and enemy in heart will appear at the feast. Lily and James stood up. "Ah, before you two go I want you to promise me that you'll stay in the kitchens. And also, I'll cast a Disillusionment Charm on you, just in case someone will stumble his way into the kitchen," he said. "Yes sir" they mumbled "Sir, I must ask you one thing though," said Lily hesitatingly "If we are in the future, does that mean that we are no longer Head Boy and Girl, sir?"

"I am afraid so Ms Evans, but don't worry, when you will go back to your time, I am certain you will be the fantastic Head Girl as I remembered you were. Same for you Mr Potter. I am sure you will be a wonderful pairing." Lily, who blushed to the compliment from the headmaster now, stood in shock and a little anger at the headmaster who suggested that she and Potter was a wonderful pair.

Does he know something that we don't? James wondered
and mentally smirked. "Is he suggesting something here Moony?" asked James suggestively to Remus. "I must certainly not," Dumbledore said, eyes twinkling nonstop while Remus chuckled. "Very well, let's go," he said after he cast the charm. James, Lily, Remus and Dumbledore left the office, splitting when they got to the staircase separating the kitchens floor to the Great Hall. "Well professor, that was entertaining. I forgot how much she used to dislike him," said Remus in amusement after James and Lily went. "Indeed, indeed my dear friend. It was a very enlightening

event," said Dumbledore. "Professor…before they came…you said that there is a chance we can bring them back to life. Is that…is that true?" Remus said when a hope balloon started to grow in his stomach. "Yes. You see Remus, in the 12th century; a charm was invented by the greatest wizard at the time, Ajax Ambrose. This charm can be cast in order to reverse time, and to keep the travellers in time in the age they were before they cast the reversed charm - to travel to the future. This charm is not an incantation. It is a sentence that in both future and past, the person who said it has a strong feeling of pure love towards the other person." "And you guess that both James and Ron have these 'pure love' feelings towards Lily and Hermione and they both said the same sentence?" Dumbledore nodded in affirmation. "Well, we both know James had feeling for Lily ever since third year but Ron...? This is surprising," said Remus, chuckling. "Yes, yes…the problem is how we are going to get James and Lily back to 1977. I'll have to think carefully about this…" Dumbledore looked pensive. "Would you like to join us for dinner? I'm sure that our new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher will keep you busy for a while," said

Dumbledore with a sly look at Remus. "What do you mean?" asked Remus, his heart beating. "Oh, don't worry Remus; I'm sure that you'll find her company very enjoyable." Dumbledore said with the usual twinkle in his eyes. Remus didn't know what to say in response to this statement so he kept walking. "Where do you recon Dumbledore is? I mean…he was never absent from the start-of-term feast," said Harry. "I don't know," lied Hermione smoothly. "Um…anyway Harry, who do you recon that woman is?" asked Ron pointing to the teachers table; desperately trying to change the subject. Hermione shot Ron a quick grateful look. "There is only one option open is there?" said Harry reasonably "But, wait a minute what's professor Lupin doing here?" "What?" said Hermione and Ron at once and quickly searched the great hall, their eyes darting and widening as they saw him. "So…so…that means that they –" Ron started but was

His eyes lingered on the black-haired boy." "Don't call me Herms you prat!" hissed Hermione and Harry couldn't help but laugh. a thought popped up in his mind and he turned to . Harry Potter's eyes gave him away. his eyes are still sad. He remembered the letters Hermione and Ron were writing him for two summers. He needs someone to cry on. They stopped laughing and no matter that a smirk was all over his face. and fast. reporting on Harry's condition." He remembered one of Hermione's letters to him this summer. HERMS" he said and he and Ron burst out laughing.pinched by Hermione "Ouch! Sorry Herms. "It makes him to think of this. He needs Hogwarts. "What is so funny Harry?" she asked bitterly. "He says that he is okay but I think that the summers are particularly hard on him." But then. "Nothing. Even when he laughs. Dumbledore watched the three teenagers that were laughing.

Ron and Hermione took notice of that. "Professor. ." Remus froze. He looked at the new Defence teacher and paled." Albus sat there a moment. professor Amy Isadora. As the sorting ceremony was over." Yet again Dumbledore marvelled on his students' intelligence. he needs some time. if his summers are bad as Ron and Hermione say. Amy Isadora? This name was familiar. while the students were sorted and finally said "Very well. "Welcome to another year at Hogwarts! First I would like to introduce you to your new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. "Remus.Lupin. do you see what I see in Harry's eye? Do you see his sadness?" he asked sadly. "Do you think it's wise to let Harry see his parents?" Remus sat still for a few seconds. On the other side of the table. Remus nodded as he tried to understand where this conversation is going. I think that first he needs to readjust Hogwarts. Snape's face tightened. Harry. and wondered whom that teacher was. he stood up for the regular start-of-term notices.

Tuck in!" several groans of satisfaction were sounded. "Now. as the tables were suddenly full with food. First-years ought to know that the dark forest is strictly out of bounds. "Of course it is me you prat! Who do you think I am. "I know Am" he smiled at her. "You'll be surprised." she said happily. "Amy! Is that really you?" whispered Remus as he looked disbelievingly at the woman near him. I believe I said it all. "So…what did you do since…since Lily and James died?" . a Death Eater under Polijuice Potion?" said Amy jovially." Several chuckles were sounded from the students as they remembered Lee Jordan's prank (inspired from the twins) from last year. In addition." "Really? Well now."Now. Mr Filch our caretaker has asked me to remind you that no magic is permitted in corridors between classes. he asked me to tell you all that no Bowtruckles are to be taken from the greenhouses. "So Remus. it happened three years ago. I assure you I'm no more Death Eater than you are. what are you doing here?" asked a voice near Remus.

got up and went straight to the common room. caught her words." he said suspiciously. who sat in the end of the table." She said quietly. somewhat chocking. . well…I was undercover you know…he can't afford telling the whole Order what are the plans…well. is that Harry?" she whispered tearfully. That blasted Black. and you just insulted his dead godfather. "Yes. that WAS Harry. shocked until Dumbledore got up. He felt frozen. you saw what happened last time." Said Remus with barely concealed anger. the only person he knew that was close to a father to him. he got up and went. "Oh my god. a numbing sensation was spread all over his brain." she said clutching her hands so tightly that her knuckles were white. "Innocent? How can you say that Remus? He was their blasted secret keeper! And he murdered 12 people! Not to mention that he murdered Peter!" Harry. "Funny. "Am. He put down his fork. With that."I've been working in Jordan for the Order. Dumbledore never mentioned you. "Yes Amy. he was innocent" Remus said. Amy sat there.

I'm sorry I didn't update yesterday. As such. . I was told last time of that mistake and just couldn't find where it was.-sigh. I made up Flooer Powder. a one that can Floo you directly to Hogwarts. it means a lot. go to rest. Good Night" "What's going on professor?" Amy asked. Thanks for reviewing. Bill Hagridsson – Thanks for the correction. A/N : Thank you all for reading and reviewing. I didn't know if the usual Floo can do that and didn't want to be yelled for reviewing. classes are cancelled until after lunch tomorrow."You may want to return to your common rooms. Jinxeh . But it is fixed now.it happened in the first time I posted this story. you'll need that" he said with a sad smile. Teachers. we will be having a meeting tomorrow morning. I was so engrossed in other fanfics I just forgot. I wouldn't be able to update tomorrow as well because I have a major history test on Wednesday. Dumbledore studied her for a moment "You'll know everything tomorrow Amy.

.

Please make sure you ate breakfast because the meeting will last until lunchtime. she studied him for a moment with a confused expression until she looked at her plate and resumed her eating. Dear Mr Lupin The teachers meeting will take place today at 7 am in the staff room. What can possibly be so urgent that there won't be any classes? He came out of bed and took a shower. He looked at the teachers table and yawned. He went to the great hall for breakfast.*Chapter 6*: Chapter 6: I'm Dead! I'm Dead? The teachers and Remus woke up in 6:30 the next morning with a flash of a blinding light and a letter resting on their bed. Dumbledore Remus sighed. Getting dressed took him more than he thought. still rubbing his eyes. Remus rubbed his eyes and took the letter. He studied her for a moment. A. Her blond hair was up in a ponytail and her cream-colored . Amy was there. since he tried pull his hat onto his foot.

"Well because of Harry." he growled. with a little tremor in her voice. "Then why do you care so much huh?" he growled in frustration. Only Arbella Figg. I never saw him after that Halloween –" "Neither of us did. "I refuse to admit any connection Black and I had. She stayed silent for the rest of the meal.gentle face was no longer young. . the teachers headed towards the staff room." she said grudgingly. she is his neighbor you know. "Morning Amy" he grunted. She gave us reports on his condition for ten years and I can tell you this boy had a difficult life with these muggles. "What did you mean yesterday? How can Black be innocent?" she said. "Amy. "Morning" she said as he sat down near her. thinking. There was a moment of silent until she spoke. would you stop calling him Black! He was your fiancé for god sake!" said Remus a bit too loudly for his taste. At 6:55.

He murdered 12 muggles and Peter Pettigrew. "We are here to discuss a very important matter. who for Voldemort-" some of the teachers flinched . The teachers took their seats as did madam Pomfrey. What is he playing at? Amy's jaw was set and she glared at Remus. As well did professor McGonagall.When they arrived. "Their secret keeper was Mr Pettigrew." Remus looked at him with a confused and angry expression on his face. The only ones who didn't look surprised were professor McGonagall." A shocked silence took over the teachers. Dumbledore entered the room and sat in the head of the table and looked at his teachers faces with a happy and clear expression. "The Potters switched secret keepers a week before they were murdered." There was silence where a shocked Amy turned to Dumbledore. professor Snape and Remus. this is a lie. "As you all know. "Well. He is a Death Eater. all of the tables were organized as a rectangular. Sirius Black was the Potters secret keeper. But first I would like to tell you something important that is intertwined with the matter.

Amy sobbed harder and a few tears slide down Remus's cheek." "And murdered him" said Amy with shining eyes. "I'm sure you all remember the accident Mr Arthur Weasley . However. and blew the whole street with a wand he held behind his back. chocked." Amy sat there in shock and suddenly began to cry. He kept in touch with him during the last years." said Dumbledore pityingly. thanks to the connection Voldemort accidentally made the night of Halloween 1981. Peter Pettigrew is an Animagus and when Sirius Black cornered him he yelled what he yelled. "Yes Amy he was.he was innocent the whole time?" Amy asked. he hurried to wipe them. He went after him. "No Ms Isadora he didn't. "Mr Potter found that out in the end of his third year. as the Potters best friend was furious with Pettigrew. Not before he cut his own fingered and transformed of course."for over a decade and sold them to him. "He. Mr Potter had visions of the things Voldemort does. Her sobs rocked her body and she tried her best to hide them. Mr Black.

replaced by a determined expression. He fell threw a death veil in the Department of Mysteries." "Last June. a few people including Sirius Black headed there too. After that Voldemort realized that Mr Potter saw these things and share a connection with him. the tears now gone from her face.had two year around Christmas. "Indeed. When we were informed that hewas there. Mr Potter saw it happen and informed me immediately. Harry headed there with a few of his friends. the minister acknowledged the fact that Voldemort has indeed returned. "Mr Potter suffered from ridicule and slander not only from his classmates. All of the students and adults came back. "Voldemort came back three years ago and the Wizarding community completely ignored it. Sirius didn't. Dumbledore ignored her and continued "Mr Potter was in the Ministry of Magic two years ago. also from the entire Wizarding community." "How is this got to do with Harry?" asked Amy. because he had a vision in which Voldemort held Sirius Black in the Department of Mysteries." . What he didn't know was that it was false vision." Declared Dumbledore." "Voldemort tricked him?" asked professor Sprout in shock.

professor Flitwick squeaked and asked "Who came forward? And who was the other pair?" he looked so shocked his hat fell of his head." there was silence." A few of the teachers gasped. Dumbledore smiled. so did Amy.With that. After a few minuets of silence where only Amy's sobs were heard Dumbledore continued. Dumbledore continued dramatically "Yesterday on the Hogwarts Express. The teachers looked at her with pity. but this year he is better but there is another important issue to discuss. ." a few giggles were sounded from the female teachers and Snape rolled his eyes in disgust." Amy looked at him. I'm sure you noticed. Amy burst out crying and didn't stop. the other pair was Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. the Love Time Charm was cast. Professor Snape's eyes rolled backwards and he fainted. wiping her cheeks. "Well. wondering what can be more important than her dead ex-fiancé. "And the pair from the past was Lily Evans and James Potter. "Harry was very quiet last year.

" "Together!" asked Amy. "But professor."Poppy. if you please" said Dumbledore in amusement and pointed his thumb at Amy and Snape. There was silence. Dumbledore smiled. Until I'll find the reversed charm they have to study like the rest of them. "They are sleeping in the kitchens. they were too shocked to talk. Remus told me that neither does he." "Where are they now?" asked Snape with sore expression. amused by his attitude. For a few minuets no one spoke. She pointed her wand at them and whispered Ennervate and they stirred." Announced Dumbledore. we can save Lily and James Potter. Ladies and Gentleman. I don't know how long it will take me. astonished at the headmaster's obvious stupidity. they cannot miss weeks or maybe months of studying. This means that we can save them. "I know. . I don't remember that happen" said Amy in confusion. "The problem is how we are going to tell Harry.

"Albus. With that. one word –" threatened Remus. "What are you laughing at Lupin? This is not funny! Hogwarts cannot handle James Potter. Snape wore a very sour expression and his lip curled in disgust. they looked at each other and laughed. Seconds later." He said."Yes indeed." asked McGonagall. Amy's wand was still pointing at . Remus considered it for a moment before lowering his wand with flashing eyes. James Potter was the number one prankster at the time. both Amy and Remus had their both wands pointing at him "Don't you even say it Snape. We are going back to the pranks time." said Remus "They won't know what hit them. forgetting Remus was one of James's so called 'cronies'. "Remus please lower your wand. not to mention…" McGonagall said. Remus thought he heard Amy mutter 'number two'." she said in a soft whimper. so did Dumbledore." "Oh boy. however. we are lucky he is alone without his cronies. are they seventeen? They were still fighting at the beginning of the year Albus. her eyes suddenly widening. "Poor house elves." Dumbledore said eyes twinkling.

There was a moment of silence were Remus's and Amy's breathing eased. Very delicate emotional situation? What are they talking ." said madam Pomfrey in hesitation. "Tell him. They arrived just as madam Pomfrey started speaking. you don't want the whole school to see your underpants again am I right?" she hissed. The Disillusioning Charm made them invisible and they could listen to every word. Everything. you are an adult now. I don't think it would be wise. "What do we tell Harry?" he asked gently. "Ms Isadora please control yourself. if Mr Potter is indeed in very delicate emotional state. When they heard what she had to say. James froze.Snape. James and Lily stood outside the staff room." said Amy in determination. do I need to remind you of that?" McGonagall said sternly. "Careful Snivellus. Amy lowered her wand in bitterness and Dumbledore took the chance to speak. Snape's face tightened as pink spots coloured his face. "I disagree Ms Isadora.

"His parents came from the past" Lily's eyes widened and she whispered "No…No…" just as James's smile grew and he said "Yes!" and he grabbed Lily and started waltzing with her. maybe even children. "Yes but Poppy.about? I'm totally fine. his breath stopped as he looked at her. He stopped dancing but kept her in his arms.Potter Then her eyes widened in understanding if we are in the future." she said with a slight giggle that tried to sound stern." Lily froze too. Mr Potter has to know that his parents came back from the past. "Stop dancing with me Potter. I admit. She is so beautiful I feel so safe she thought I feel like it's the right place to be . we are married. Whom are they talking about? Surely not me and Jam. She is so cute when she is angry he thought as her face twisted in anger. He is a very good dancer. James has his kids and I.

She stepped backwards. little toerag? . I know you like it. yeah. "Don't" she said sharply. Don't deny it. He's just an arrogant bigheadYeah.but she stopped that thought as he leaned forward what is he doing? She thought in panic." Lily froze. we know that in seventh year they dated and later ended up married. but you like it don't you? You actually like James Potter. Amy is HERE? I date James Potter? We have a son? So…so. What was he thinking? I bet Amy would freak. He nodded in defeat and went to the kitchens. we know. she heard from the staff room a voice "I don't care what you are saying. Lily was my best friend and I know she would've wanted her son to know she was here. I'm not! Why would I like thisCute. Suddenly. An annoying voice said in her head. He almost kissed me. No. it's true. sulking. Even if she'll freak out. I'm not. she needs to know she and James have a son. handsome. Oh no. Forget about James.

and went looking for the enchanted yearbooks. Go after him. The voice stopped laughing. just in case someone was there. found . she knew that these books cannot lie and show the exact location and details about the person. Shut up.Yes! No! He is not cute! She mentally argued with herself. The voice said firmly. The voice laughed and Lily shook her head in attempt to shake the voice off her. After a few minuets of intensive search where she tried not to move the books. I'm going to the library. forgetting about Dumbledore's request. She entered the library. She mentally screamed. Said the voice nastily. she found what she looked for: 1977 YEAR BOOK She opened it and after a few minutes of search. She indeed went to the library. Go! I'm not going after him. Yeah right. No.

herself.

She was stunned. She is dead? The Dark Lord was defeated by her son? This was all too confusing.

These books don't lie. She thought desperately and flipped
the pages, looking for James.

Huh, so you DO care about him said the voice in triumph. No. she said firmly to the voice I just want to know more information. Right. James Potter Age: 21 (deceased: 1981) Family: mother - Julia Potter (deceased: 1979), father Oliver Potter (deceased: 1979), wife - Lily Potter (deceased: 1981), son - Harry Potter (born: 1980).

Peter sold us to Voldemort? Peter is a Death Eater? I'm not sure James is going to like this. She thought. She took the book and walked to the kitchens, pondering on the situation. She was dead. It explained it all: why Dumbledore wanted them under Disillusionment Charm, why they weren't allowed to wander in the halls, why the teachers were panicking. When she entered the kitchen she suddenly heard an annoying buzz that sounded like voices in her head. She looked and saw James sitting on the floor, his hands pressed firmly to his face and rubbing his face. "Potter?" she said quietly. He jumped to his feet, "Lily…What- what are you doing here? How long have you been standing there?" he asked nervously. "Only a few minutes. Why?" she asked suspiciously. "Nothing…um…not to be rude or anything, but what do you

want?"

He is back to his normal behaviour. She thought in
satisfaction. "I did a little research and I think you better take a look at this," she said, handing him the yearbook. He read the information about himself and his eyes were wide. "I am dead? You are dead? Peter is a Death Eater? No…" he said quietly "No…It's not possible…" "These are enchanted yearbooks James, they don't lie. They can't" she said with a slight tremor in her voice. He slide down the wall and sat there, too shocked to say something. Before she knew what she was doing, she sat next to him and took his hand. She gave him a little squeeze and he looked into her eyes and returned a squeeze. They sat there a few minutes, hands joined, looking in the book that described their life..

He looks so lost. She thought with an uncharacteristic
sympathised thoughts about James.

Well, you were lost too if you found out one of your closest friends was a Death Eater and sold you to Voldemort. She
groaned mentally when she heard the voice. "James" she said. He looked at her, looking like a lost child more than anything else. "We need to see what else had changed." He nodded mournfully and flipped to the first pages.

James's eyes were blazing fire and even Lily was scared in what she saw in them: anger. James flipped the pages furiously and found what he searched for.

Remus Lupin Age: 37 (born: 1960) Family: mother – Marie Lupin (deceased: 1967), father – Ernie Lupin (deceased: 1988). Friends: James Potter (deceased: 1981), Sirius Black (deceased: 1995), Peter Pettigrew (born: 1960), Jenny Hudson (deceased: 1979), Amy Isadora (born: 1960). Profession: None.

Lily nodded "I should've known. For six years he is disappearing one a month. Why didn't I see it before?" she scolded herself. "Why are you disappearing once a month too?" she asked suddenly. James studied her for a moment "Do you promise not to tell anyone? It can put us in a lot of trouble" he said. Lily nodded. "Well…you see, when we figured Remus was a werewolf we couldn't let his suffer alone," said James, buried in nostalgia. "You didn't go after him right? He could bite you…" interrupted Lily. "Werewolf are dangerous for humans, not animals." He explained "Sirius, Peter and I are unregistered Animagus. We go after him every month." Lily's mouth was hanging. Whatever she expected to hear, it wasn't that. "You are an Animagus? When-?"

"When we were at fourth year." He answered. "Potter, this is extremely dangerous! Running around with a werewolf once a month!" she said hysterically. "I know," he shushed her "but we can't let him do that alone. It is very painful to become a werewolf." She sat there in silence, looking at their linked hands. "Well, at least Remus is okay. Not a bloody traitor like Peter" James spat suddenly and Lily nodded in understanding. He studied her face for a moment. Admiring every freckle. Lily could have sworn she heard his thoughts, telling her she is beautiful. "Lily, we need to talk" he said. She looked into his hazel eyes and let his hand go, immediately missing his hands' warmth.

Moment of truth Lily, you can't run anymore the voice
mocked her "Potter…" "No Lily, let me talk," He took a deep breath. "Lily, I know you don't like me very much but I can't stand it

anymore. You are the best thing that ever happened to me. I tried everything to make you like me. I worked hard to get good grades; I protect you when people insult you. I know you don't want me to, and that you can take care of yourself but I just can't help it. I really like you Lily. I want you to know that." He said He looked at her and saw her that she was looking at the floor. They stayed in complete silence for a couple minutes. "We should eat lunch" he said "I'm hungry" She snickered silently "Yeah." "Harry Potter sir! Dobby is so happy to see mister Potter here sir! And miss Wheezy too!" squeaked a voice beneath them. James looked and saw a house elf plastered to his knees. He tried to peel the elf off him gently. "I am not Harry Potter Dobby. I am James Potter," he said weakly. Still not quite used to the fact that he has a son. The elf's eyes widened "James Potter?" he nodded "Are you a relative of master Harry sir?" "In a way" said James uncomfortably "We would like to eat lunch Dobby please. Can you bring

us some lunch?" said Lily "Of course Ms what is Ms's name?" squeaked Dobby "Evans. Lily Evans" she said. Dobby nodded and disappeared. Two minuets after four house elves came running with lunch. "Eat Master James and Miss Lily." "Thank you Dobby" they said together. In the meanwhile, the school was in lunch too. Harry Ron and Hermione sat all morning, talking about what on earth can be so important that the first day of school was half free. They sat at the table and started eating. "Harry" said Ron "Um.." he said "Why are all the teachers staring at you?" Harry shot his head up and saw that indeed the teaches were staring at him. "Did I do something? Do I have pink hair or something?" he asked Ron fearfully

Professor Dumbledore will be waiting for you in his office after lunch" she said. "Hey. . looking in his eyes." Hermione nodded. put one and one together. He turned around and looked at a very sober professor McGonagall. Suddenly his eyes widened in realisation. "Oh no…" she whispered. what's with the two of you? What happened?" Harry asked in panic. you look exactly the same" said Ron Hermione in the meantime. "They know. pleading with her look for him to understand."No mate. "You are dismissed from all of today's lessons." Ron whispered "They know. "Potter" said a voice behind him. "That was what the meeting was about" she said. "Hey what's happened? Hello?" Harry said waving his hand between the two of them. "What?" said Harry Hermione looked at Ron.

muttering something that sounded like "Like father." She said. searching for his guardian. closely followed by Remus. happiness. he got up the table and went towards Dumbledore's office.' Harry continued eating and when he did."What did I do? I swear professor. Like son. "I know Potter. "No Potter" and she went." Harry frowned. This is about something else. A smile appeared on her face. I didn't do anything" he said." Snapped McGonagall suddenly. . I know. confusion and worry. When he looked at him he saw in his eyes a mixture of sadness. "But professor…" started Harry in protest. Harry didn't understand that. panicked. "Professor…should we tell him?" asked Hermione in a small voice. What happened that Ron and Hermione couldn't tell him? He looked at the teaches table. "No Ms Granger he'll know soon enough. Remus gave him a look that plainly said 'you'll-know-everything-soon.

"Sure. If you want to talk to me in the msn messenger add me: mayanlevy2 at hotmail dot co dot il Lily ."What happened Remus? Is it Voldemort?" he asked. but what happened?" he asked in confusion." Little did he know that Lily Evans and James Potter were right behind them. looking in awe at their future son. growing weary by the minute. Thanks for all the rest of you for reviewing. If you want to know who Amy is. just take a look in chapter 1. A/N: Thank you so much for all of your reviews. I'm tad disappointed because in this point of the story in my last account I had at least 100 reviews… Jinxeh – I didn't even think about this (the Floo powder) at the time. Look. "You'll know in a bit. um…you are going to hear from Dumbledore something that will probably shock you and… and I don't want you to do anything rush okay? Do you promise me that Harry?" he asked. "No Harry.

.

.

there is a very important matter I would like to discuss with you." Dumbledore said jovially. There is no easy way to tell you what I'm about to tell you." "What is it professor?" he asked in fear. Please have a seat. Harry. "Ah." Harry looked terrified. followed by Remus and the invisible James and Lily." . yesterday in the Hogwarts Express. This charm is very old and in fact. the Love Time Charm has been cast.*Chapter 7*: Chapter 7: Family Affairs Family Affairs "Sugar Quills" said Remus and the gargoyle jumped aside. "Well…you see. "Very well. "Lemon Drop?" he suggested they politely shook their heads. He couldn't imagine something bad happening this early. Harry. Harry sat. Harry and Remus entered Dumbledore's office and saw Dumbledore sitting behind his desk. "Some of the teachers asked me not to tell you because we are afraid of your reaction. popping into his mouth a Lemon Drop. this is the first time in two hundred and eighty seven years that the charm is activated.

that is the problem. "When a person from the present and a person from the past are located in the same place and say the same sentence to another person to which they have a strong feeling of love to. the people from the past comes to the present. you see Harry. "Well. Even Dumbledore cracked a smile. what is it has to do with me?" he asked." . "This charm brings two people from the past to the present by the power of love." "I'm a little confused professor." Harry sat in silence. followed by chuckles from Remus. your friend Ronald appears to have these feelings to Ms Granger. bewildered. After Harry relaxed a bit he asked "Who came from the past?" "Ah. wondering what this is all about. Your parents came from the past." Harry snickered and then the snicker became laughter."What does this charm do?" asked Harry. you see.

trying to get used to the idea. Oh my god." But Harry didn't hear what Dumbledore said. "Well…they were supposed to be in the kitchen but I see they can't help but sneak into my office. "Yes. not looking at all mad. feeling his brain becoming fogged. maybe it has some bright sides. I can talk to them. He thought in shock. The teachers and I had a meeting this morning. We were afraid that you will do something rush. and he will. A smile appeared on his face. Finite Incantatem"Dumbledore said pointing at the direction of James and Lily. My parents are here. It cannot be – fate was laughing in his face. "Where are they?" he asked in fear mixed with excitement.A long silence came afterwards "My-My parents are HERE?" he asked in shock. My parents are here. Yes he can. MY PARENTS ARE HERE. he kept thinking. We wondered if we should tell you. .

James looked at Harry in disbelief. Thousands of questions popped up in his head. He looks like me. His orphan son. "I have my ways. And what he thinks of is when is he going back! . how did you know we were here?" Lily asked in shock. But his eyes. eyes wandering to Harry whose mouth was open. Why would Harry want them to go back? "That's a good question sir. I don't want to be here too long. "When are they going back?" he blurted without thinking. when ARE we going back. Dumbledore and Remus shared a confused look."Professor. and his eyes were wide as saucers. He just saw his son for the first time.. He snapped out of his daze when he saw from the corner of his eye Dumbledore shift a little. There was an awkward silence where Harry just stared in shock at James and Lily." James said with tad arrogance. Harry's felt an odd lump in his throat." he said. Lily's eyes. Lily's blood boiled.

Bravo Harry. James and Harry nodded and turned to get out of the office." said Dumbledore. you have to return to your stupid behavior! Stupid James! "Well there is not much to do except placing you in the dormitories. "How-?" he started but Dumbledore stopped him. damn! The first time I get to talk with my mother and she is angry with me. "Professor? We don't have our trunk here" he said a bit sadly. James and Lily's trunk appeared. You ARE a stupid idiot. I shouldn't have said that thought Harry desperately she is angry with me now."You selfish idiot!" she yelled. . making everyone jump and Remus flinch "Is that all you can think of?" she said and stormed out of the office. "That won't be a problem" said Dumbledore with a gentle smile and with a wave of his wand. Stupid James! Stupid James! When she starts to like you. There was utter silence when the door shut loudly. Harry got out but James lingered there a bit longer.

" Dumbledore said with a wink. When he got there. I daresay you know the way. The password is 'Fairy Wings'. "Wingardium Leviosa. Oh and here are your timetables. Every wall in this room was covered by dozens of posters . where are you?" he said franticly as he scanned the map. He thought desperately. His mother hated him. He saw his mother and father today but he did not feel happy anymore. he saw the wooden door. I need to explain. He opened it and gasped in shock and relief."It doesn't matter. Please levitate these to the dormitories. Then he spotted her in the seventh floor in – "The Room of Requirement! What is she doing there?" He tucked the map into his robes and jogged all his way to the Room of Requirement. I have to find her. It was almost ironic that the day he last saw her she died for him and today she hated him. He went to his dormitory and pulled out from his trunk the Marauders Map."James muttered and the trunks jumped to the air James walked his way to Gryffindor tower in low spirits. "Come on mum. Harry didn't feel well.

"I still cannot believe it. She sat in the middle of the room on a red sofa thinking ad occasionally glancing at the portraits. She once heard Peter talking about the map too loudly and demanded an explanation from the marauders. Lily was there. I don't want to believe it." he answered simply and she nodded in understanding." she said "Tell me about you. "Nothing" he answered quickly and stop laughing. I don't want to get too attached to you. She jolted up. Each of them carrying a swear word. She looked at him oddly." he said.of James. How weird is it to you?" she asked suddenly "I mean. "What are you laughing at?" she snapped in annoyance." he said. seeing your parents even though you never met them"." . Harry considered his answer. "Harry…how did you know I was here?" "The Marauders Map. "I don't know. "I understand. "Right. "Lily? Harry said in hesitation. Harry looked of one of James's posters with a large and flashing 'Twit' on it and chuckled.

not acknowledging James in the least. This conversation wasn't going to where he wanted it to. It'll change the past. "He looks just like Harry. Harry" she said." they stood up and whispers began as they saw James. It's not only the Potter temper it's a redhead temper as well said the annoying voice in her head Stuff it she answered it briskly and walked towards the Great Hall for dinner. I'll see you later Lily. Lily sighed." He said. "Hi Ron. We will be having two new students here. "Don't you want the past to be changed?" she asked gently. Please welcome Lily Evans and James Potter. Professor Dumbledore stood."I can't. "I know this wasn't an ordinary first day of school to you but I have an announcement to make. Harry got up quickly. Hermione." he said before storming off the room." "Do you think they are relatives?" "He is SO handsome!" . It's the Potter temper. "I'm going.

we should go. Lavender and Parvati came running "Lily.. "They were sorted into Gryffindor. right. "Lily! Lily!" someone called. "Erm. do you want us to show you where you are sleeping?" Lavender asked eyeing James." said Hermione suddenly." Ron said and he and Hermione went."She is a BABE!" They sat down." . "Um…Ron. The school turned his attention immediately to the food. See you later. "Oh. James grinned in pleasure of the attention.sure" she said "See you later Harry. I hope you will welcome them graciously to Hogwarts. we have a prefect meeting.. There was an uncomfortable silence between them. After they finished their meal James. Ron and Hermione got up the table and went to Gryffindor tower. Lily. and Lily had a bright blush on her face. not acknowledging the stares they've been given the moment they got up. Harry. Now. Tuck in!" Dumbledore said. Neither knew what to say to the other.

"Harry" he said "Are you very sad about Sirius?" Harry frowned how did he know? "How did you know?" he asked with suppressed anguish. Harry nodded "Yeah. They are also quite funny sometimes you know…almost as if Dumbledore wrote them." James said as he shook his head. The same sense of humor. "Enchanted yearbooks? What –?" "They show the exact details about the person. "Night. "I'm sure you'll find a way James. Come on we need to go to sleep." Back in the girls' dormitories. Parvati and Lily were having a very heated discussion about James and Harry. Night." James said. "Lily and I were looking at the enchanted yearbooks. I do miss him. "Yeah…yeah…" they entered the dormitory and James went to his bed." he said curtly."Damn" James said after she entered the girls' dormitories "the moment I get her to like me I screw it all up!" he said. ." Harry said. Lavender. honestly.

astonished. Petunia must have abused him. Horrible people." Lavender cooed while Lily wrinkled her nose. "You don't know the story of Harry Potter?" asked Lavender. "What! His aunt and uncle? From his mother's side?" Lily yelped Oh my god. hoping to know more about her future son. all of the things he's done…" "What did he do?" asked Lily."James is far more muscular than Harry. I am a muggleborn so –" she stopped as Lavender and Parvati nodded in understanding. "Harry defeated the dark lord when he was one year old. He was raised by muggles. we'll tell you" Parvati said. . "I know the basic story. He is so cute. You-know-who killed his parents and all Harry got was this scar on his forehead." shuddered Parvati. His aunt and uncle from his mother's side I think. "Don't worry. "No way! Did you see Harry after Quidditch practice? All of his cloth stuck to his body and-" Parvati shivered "he is so brave you know.

" Lavender said shaking her head. You know the legend about the chamber of secrets?" Lily nodded." she said "No offence of course" "None taken. it was written in many history books." answered Lily quickly. planning her revenge on Petunia "In out first year. Harry saved the Philosophers Stone from you-know-who's hands. but from what I heard from their conversations. He knew nothing. Harry doesn't talk about them much you know. in out second year we discovered he is a Parseltongue and we don't know what happened there. no wonders he eats like a pig in the first week of school." continued Parvati. the PHILOSOPHERS STONE! WHEN HE WAS ELEVEN?" Lily yelled. "He didn't even hear about the magical world until he came to Hogwarts. he died that day. "Well. Like a complete muggleborn. of course she heard about it. but he somehow entered the chamber of secrets and saved . "Yeah." "Harry saved. they barely giving him something to eat."Yeah. "Anyway. Our professor was a Death Eater you know. Lavender shushed her. but that's not all.

I think you know about that.Ginny Weasley – Ron's sister. We never in our whole life saw Harry cry but in the end of fifth year we saw him at the lake crying. We don't know much about it too because Harry never spoke about it." . Nobody except Harry and Dumbledore knows exactly what happened there. wondering what he was doing in the Triwizard Tournament. Ron and Hermione but it turned out to be truth in the end of fifth year. but that's not all." "In our fourth year he was the fourth participant of the Triwizard Tournament. besides Dumbledore. "Nobody believed him really. Some people from your school were there" Lily nodded. The third task was this maze and all we know Harry showed up in the middle of the maze holding one of the students' dead body." Lily's eyes widened. All we know that he stated screaming in the middle of the History of Magic OWL exam and shoed up in the hospital wing two days later. "Yeah." "Oh my god" Lily whispered. "Our Defense teacher turned out to be a Death Eater under Polijuice Potion but we don't really know what happened there too. He said you-know-who was back.

" "And his eyes were swelled like he has been crying nonstop. "Nobody really knows I think beside Dumbledore." In the mean time." Parvati nodded gloomily. Oh. "Thanks for telling me guys." Lily said and rubbed her eyes. "In sixth year nothing important happened except Harry looked like he hadn't eaten the whole summer." "Night. Ron and Hermione. it's been a very long day." said Lavender in undisguised sadness "He looked so miserable. no wonder he looks so skinny and sad. my god. what happened to him?" asked Lily despite the fact that she had a suspicion. "Night Lily. I think I'm going to sleep now." added Lavender "Oh my god. Wonder what happened. Ron and Hermione were running a very ."That was horrible. look." Lily sat there in silence.

and one before Christmas too. What about Hogsmede dates? We can do only 5 in a year you know. You are not to tell anyone about the balls. "Okay. a day after?" There were agreement murmurs. Ron blushed and Hermione looked furious. "What about in Valentines Day Weasel King? Never crossed in your mind?" said Pansy Parkinson nastily." shooting a glare at Pansy "Anymore?" "What about in the beginning of April? You know…before the exams. "Yeah. "Valentines Day it is then." said Ron "so we decided on having a Halloween ball and Christmas ball. Any more?" said Ron waving his hand dismissively as Hermione wrote." He said "I think we should do one this month before Halloween" said a Ravenclaw sixth year. "Yeah good idea" said Ron "and how about after the exams. "Okay than.successful prefect meeting. Ron . "Whatever." said a Hufflepuff fifth year ." said Hannah Abbott anxiously.

music and other stuff. Go before it will be a week of worth detention. "No problem Ron" she said as she got near. "You love that don't you Weasel King? Being Head Boy with the stupid Mudblood." said Ron.and me will plan this and give you assignments about food. "Why? What are you going to do to me Weasel? Potty is not around to throw hexes at me." Malfoy drawled. ." There was silence as the prefects came out. You can go now. Hard. "Thanks Hermione. that his parents are here and all?" he asked shakily. Only Malfoy stayed. "Twenty points from Slytherin Malfoy for insulting the Head Boy and Girl. not looking at her. He shut the door and left." said Ron as his ears turned pink. You love her don't you Weasel?" "Shut up Malfoy." Hermione said coolly from the corner of the room. Ron swallowed. "So…Herms…what do you think Harry will do now. Malfoy's face twisted in anger but he didn't say anything.

The two teenagers jumped apart and started blushing madly. it'll change the history. back to her businesslike tone. They didn't know if they were there minutes or hours but the large clock above the fireplace suddenly chimed."I don't know. "They have to. sending shivers down Ron's spine "I just hope he won't be too sad when they leave" "I know…do you think they'll erase their memories?" he asked. . too astounded to make a sentence right. heard all about it 'you can't change history or it'll have serious conseque-" However. Midnight. "I think we should go" said Hermione.yeah." she said quietly.go" Ron said." she said. His eyes widened. "I know I know. he didn't get a chance to finish his sentence because Hermione kissed him. "Yeah. but soon he shut his eyes and devoted himself for the kiss. the blush still bright on her face.

"Hey! Lily! Wake up honey! You have Snape first thing in the morning." "Night" he said in wonder. "Well. She giggled and pecked him on the jaw "Night." Lavender yelled into Lily's ear. good night Ron. He almost skipped back to the boy's dormitories. . He especially hates the Gryffindors. I had fun. though. "OH MY GOD Lavender get here quick! Hermione's lips are all swelled! Who did you snog yesterday Hermione?" Parvati asked slyly." Hermione said "Yeah. staring into space with a dreamy look. "Huh? Snape? What are you talking about?" Lily asked sleepily in annoyance.They walked to the common room in a stunned silence." Parvati said "Hermione wake up honey.yeah. no Idea why.me too" Ron mumbled. "Professor Snape is the most evil teacher at Hogwarts." she turned to Hermione "Ron-" they heard Hermione mutter.

Potter ."Leave me alone. "Well. It was obvious." Hermione said. Lavender and Parvati giggled. "WHAT!" Hermione cried in alarm and ran to the showers. do you think?" "Oh god! Ron snogged Hermione! And it's about time too!" Lavender yelped in joy. already dressed "Ron snogged Hermione?" "Yeah! They have been friends from day one. wake up anyway you have Snape first and it's 10 minutes to breakfast. "What?" asked Lily. but always fighting and bickering one another. "Who do you think snogged her yesterday? She kept muttering Ron in her sleep." Lily giggled but something happened in her mind Why is this situation so familiar? Maybe because of James? This has nothing to do with Ja. Everybody knew they like each other. the blush spreading over her cheeks. Lily's in the shower" Parvati said.

"I'm coming. now had a deep crimson color on her face now "Let's go" Harry. Let's just go to breakfast. Hermione no longer had her bushy hair. I found during the summer holiday a Hair Flattening Charm so I thought…" "Ron will have a fit" said Lavender. Hermione who was already red. I just dozed off for a minute. annoyed. "Hurry up then!" Lavender yelled. Hermione blushed "Well. I'm coming" she said. who looked at her open mouthed "what?" she asked. James and Ron were already at breakfast. "Wait for me!" Hermione yelled from the shower. "What have you done to your hair? It looks wonderful" whispered Parvati in awe. Her hair seemed to have deflated and was up in a ponytail. As . Two minuets later Hermione came out.Denial again "Lily? Are you alright?" "Yeah. smiling. But ran into three girls." she said.

James was taken aback by her cold attitude." Lily answered. not noticing the look on Harry's face. some of them may slip in." "You might want to close your mouth. "Morning Lily" said James chirpily. yes. "So…Lily…did you know that Snivellus teaches potions?" James asked in arrogance. "Yes. Lily. The chatter immediately stopped. They immediately closed their mouths. The rest of the meal passed silently. there are a lot of flies in Hogwarts. Harry and James lifted their heads and Ron and Harry's mouths were threatening to touch the ground. Parvati and Lavender walked to the great hall. When they entered the great hall. Lily decided to ignore James's greeting." said Lily with a mischievous grin. "He-He-Hermione is t-that y-y-you?" stuttered Ron. Ron. they caught the eyes of many people. "Ah. .Hermione.

" Malfoy's voice drawled behind them. "Thanks Ron. Harry looks like he wants to laugh but something's bothering him. I will have to take 10 points from Slytherin for assaulting the Head Girl and because we warned you yesterday you have also a week of worth detention. "That stupid git." The group snorted with laughter but only Lily and Harry didn't laugh." he said." said Hermione weakly. "Malfoy. Malfoy was furious "You'll pay for that Mudblood lover. "What's up Harry?" he asked as they entered the . no problem. anyway. now embarrassed."So…the Mudblood Head Girl decided to change her look? You know Granger." said Ron coolly. looks does not change your blood. James studied them both." and went. They went to the dungeons and James mumbled "Wonder if Snivellus washed his hair. face burning from rage. Lily frowned and Harry had an apologist smile on his face.

"Oh well.classroom "Wha. why don't you let her talk." he said "Today you are about to brew a Truth Potion. . nothing" he said because Snape just entered the classroom. James sniggered "Potter something is funny?" Snape glared at his old enemy. Hermione raised her hand. for your insufferable arrogance. Anyone care to explain?" Hermione raised her hand. "5 points from Gryffindor Mr Potter. and I expect you to do everything perfectly. "No nothing PROFESSOR" James said. glaring back. his black robe bellowing behind him. never thought I would meet a class who doesn't even know-" "Professor. slip-ups. this is a NEWT level class." asked Lily in surprise.. He obviously wanted to do this for a long time. "No one?" he asked..nothing James." he said with a smirk. I have no idea how some of you were able to enter that class-" he shot a glare at Harry and James "but I don't want to have any. "Now.

Harry stared open mouthed at Lily while James looked at her with something like pride and disbelieve. afraid of Snape's reaction." he said coolly "you will work in pairs." She said quickly looking at the floor. "Potter.The classroom was silent in shock. also known as Veritaserum. James however was in trouble. The lesson continued reasonably well and the best part was as well as Harry was concerned. "Ms Granger" Snape said in distaste. Harry went towards Crab with a sigh. Weasley-Nott. and Granger-Parkinson. the Truth Potion." he continued to pair the class. "Yes. Potter-Goyle. It was in the exact color it was suppose to be. Now the ingredients are on the board you have an hour and a half. Evans-Malfoy. Harry flashed a smile towards Hermione and she returned it somewhat hastily. was when Snape stood near his cauldron and didn't say a thing. "Well. Snape seemed to swallow a big lump in his throat and the vein in his head was visibly pumping. He is a very powerful potion and used only after a permission from the Ministry of Magic. what exactly is that suppose to be?" Snape . Potter-Crab.

" he said. "Veritaserum SIR." he vanished the potion "such a waste of ingredients. "Yes. living a smirking Snape sneering after him. those of you who have been able to brew a proper potion." said James with a cocky smile. "Yes professor. give me a sample of your potion and class dismissed." James cursed and rushed out of the class in angry." he said to a shocked James "Five points from Gryffindor Potter. its ingredients and what you did wrong. "Potter. can you read?" Snape asked with such a poisonous voice that took James's smile off his face. well. "That was really unfair of him! His potion was better than some of the Slytherins'!" yelped Lily after they were out of Snape's earshot. . Every lesson since first year he took points from Gryffindor. "I was beginning to wonder." Sneered Snape "Since there is no use on this potion we can vanish it. Write me a two foot essay about this potion.sneered at James." said Hermione. Snape wasn't really fair to Gryffindors to begin with. trying to sound conceited. Especially from Neville and Harry.

Snape is a professor now. he can't really be an insolent to him right? Yes. Snape is angry with James for stealing you away from him and James always hexed him. "What-yes I'm here. Oh god. . For once. "Lily? Are you there?" Hermione waved her hand in front of Lily's face. But what did Harry do to him? He is his son." she said. He wasn't fair to James. "Thanks for standing for me Lily" said Hermione suddenly."But Harry isn't so bad. "No problem Hermione. Lily thought as they kept walking. His potion was not so bad. well. I could've been much better if it wasn't for Snape" Harry said from behind them. Well. you are right. "Yes. Your son." said Lily in confusion. And James just stood there. I guess you are right. He is mean to Harry because of James." Said Lily with a smile.

Harry sat next to him. James was already there. even for the more talented students between you." "Right. Harry's table became a phoenix but instead of wings. Lily and Hermione were able to transfigure it completely. Hermione and I decided that the next Hogsmede date is on September . Only a transfiguration lesson and a trip on full moon were able to lift his spirit that way. In lunch Ron surprised everyone "Hey."I've been trying to get your attention for five minutes now. Professor McGonagall entered the class. We have transfiguration." she stole a glance at James "We are going to start with transfiguring a table into an animal…. This is not going to be easy. James was in much higher spirits." the lesson continued and by the end of class only James. I'm fine" James grunted. are you alright?" Harry asked. "Hey. This class will demand a lot of work from each and every one of you. "Yeah. When they left to lunch. there were the table's legs. "Welcome to NEWT transfiguration. He sat in the front line. let's go" she said When they got into class.

not even taken aback from the chilly attitude. rubbing his arm. "No Potter. James coughed as everyone continued talking. He said out of the blue and Hermione smacked him "Ouch!" "You weren't supposed to say that! The notices are only two weeks from now. I got 20 reviews this time -cheers-. much like Crookshanks. Lily. I just heard the date. "So…do you want to come with me?" he asked. I don't think I will. Harry immediately pricked his ears "So." hissed Hermione. who are you going with to Hogsmede?" "I don't know Potter. James was in bad spirits for the rest of the day. Suddenly. ignoring the buzzing sounds she heard." she said icily. "Sorry" Ron muttered. Lily started hearing some strange noise in her head. like a radio. and I . For the readers of 'Children' (past readers) I've almost finished chapter 6! And to this story's readers (past ones) I started chapter 19.26th. A/N: Thanks for your reviews again." Lily said in annoyance.

*Chapter 8*: Chapter 8: Getting Cosy Getting Cosy Lily entered the Defence Against the Dark Arts classroom in Thursday afternoon and sat in the middle of the class." she said. "Yes you are. "Hey. James. "I'm not looking gloomy. Ron and Hermione entered the classroom. Lily looked at her timetable and saw that they took this class with the Hufflepuffs." "Why are you looking so gloomy?" chirped Lavender. Lavender wasn't happy but kept silent. Harry. "It's just that…" she started but at the moment. I'll tell you later. "Hey" she said happily. adjusting her bra when Dean passed. not too bad Lavender immediately sat next to her. afraid that she is a bit too obvious of her guilty feelings. What's the matter?" she asked. Oh well." Forget it. . The teacher wasn't there so she waited to the rest of the class to come." she said.

"I've heard from Professor Dumbledore that there is a Defence organisation in the school. sending James a short glance. her blond hair tied in a very tight bun. James smiled innocently. Please lift your hand." She said sternly. "The spells we will learn in the first two weeks is only a rehearsal of you've learned so far that will likely to be in the practical NEWT exam. "And I expect you to do your best." she said. "Good morning class." she started sternly. those who are at this group will help the others. "Um…I think her name is Professor Isadora but I'm not exactly sure. whoever is . Lily's heart skipped a beat Isadora? Is that why Amy is here? A stern looking woman came into the class. looking at Lily and giving her barley noticed smile that Lily knew only too well. many of the spells we will learn this year will help you in the future and may even save your life. In this NEWT class there will be no messing around. This is not going to be easy." She said dramatically."Who's the Defence teacher?" Lily asked. I'm Professor Amy Isadora.

Harry. Hermione. quite a lot. Dean. "Well Mr Potter your job will be to teach our new students while the rest of the members can choose who ever they want. Thanks Amy! Now I'm stuck with two Potters! Lily shot Amy an angry look. only to be retuned by a smile and a shrug. Parvati." Everybody split into pairs while James and Harry went towards Lily. Justin and Hannah raised their hands." Harry nodded. continue with an Impedimenta Jinx for twenty five minutes. Lavender. All of the members lowered their hands and Harry shifted in his seat "Me" he said in a strained voice.in the organisation." He added after thought. May I ask who the leader is?" although she knew the answer. it was quite obvious. "We will start with a simple Expelliarmus for twenty minutes." she asked. You may begin. well. I suppose Lily try to disarm James. . then Full Body Bind for twenty minutes and Twenty minutes of the Leg-Locker Curse spell. "Well. Neville. Ron. "Uh…ok. Only disarm Lily. Ernie.

"Ok. it's your entire fault Potter! "Expelliarmus" she yelled. you can do it. She got angry. Harry and Lily laughed. From an odd reason. James's face was suddenly full with purple and orange spots. Lily tried hard to focus but James's smirk was more than disturbing." she yelled." Harry said. James's wand shot out of his hand and flew to the other side of the room." she said after seeing James. Focus Lily. pointing her wand at James. barely concealing her smile. "Ms Po-Evans please escort Mr Potter to the hospital wing." she said. James's wand did not move. . "Is there some reason you three are laughing?" professor Isadora asked "Oh." Lily whispered in a very venomous voice. trying very hard not to laugh at Lily's expression because of her 'slip-up' in her name. Amy only smiled while Lily walked out of the classroom."Expelliarmus. "Not funny Amy. you need to swish the wand before you say the incantation. seething. encouraging her.

"Okay. they would make sure all of his life was full of good memories. is he waiting for? She faked a cough. how can a simple Expelliarmus grow dots on one's face? "Oh."What did she do to him?" Amy asked Harry." said Amy." . "Well. Harry did not know who this woman was to Lily but he sniggered. I'm just having trouble finding a good memory. Poor boy. professor. Nothing during the last years caused him real happiness. smiling broadly. "I'm sorry professor. Now he lost Sirius too. "She just threw the Expelliarmus spell. she must have lost control of her feelings. I see you have nothing else to do. is that true that you can produce a corporeal Patronus?" Harry nodded "Can you do that for me?" Harry tried to think of a good memory." he said without thinking. What in the world." Harry asked in confusion. reading the confused look on Harry's face. With the though of Sirius her eyes filled with tears. Tell me. If James and Lily were alive.

"Locomotor Mortis" he yelled as Amy's legs were tied in invisible ropes. As arrogant as his father was A smile crept on his face "I'll show you then professor. Harry released Amy from the curse and lifted his head to look at the students." She said. The class stood shocked by the speed he did all the curses. . Most of them with their mouths open. He really wanted to go out of class. He took her wand and muttered the counter curse. Quickly.She said in a slightly strangled voice. Let's practice together since you have nothing to do. He waited for her to recover for a few seconds and threw a Full Body Bind on her." he said as she looked at her watch. She didn't do as much as raising her wand. slightly snappishly. he released her and threw the Leg-Locker curse. "Who said you are going to finish this in the first hour Mr Potter?" she said. "I understand. He quickly disarmed her. put an Impedimenta Jinx on her. "Really? Go in the first hour professor?" he asked in amazment. huh? She thought in obvious shock. If you'll finish the spells quickly you may go.

Suddenly. please continue. The Hufflepuffs talked among themselves. She looked at her watch and let out a gasp. "Why did she say three Potters? Lily Evans is not a Potter." Harry strode out of class. "You may go." "I know but maybe there is something that the teachers don't tell us. "You did it in a minute in a half Mr Potter. However." she stuttered nervously. too. You really screwed Amy. They watched him shut the door and turned to look at their teacher. the students didn't move. "Now that the three Potters is out of class" she started cheerfully but stopped herself as she saw the confused look on the students faces and the horrified ones on Ron and Hermione's. the bell rang. Twenty points to Gryffindor. The students walked out of the classroom and immediately started to talk." . this is a remarkable time for four different curses. The class went smoothly. "Uh…I mean now that the three Potters and Evans is out of class.She." she said in amazement. was shocked by the speed of this boy. not sharing their suspicions with the Gryffindors.

" said Hermione breathlessly. "I don't know Potter." said Hermione." he whispered and pressed his hands to his face. professor Isadora had a little slip-up. yes Harry it's bad but let's go to dinner. "What happened to your face?" "Lily here cast an Expelliarmus spell on me and these . Harry turned to look at her "Something really bad happened after you left. She said something about three Potters not in class right now. Harry visibly paled. "Well. reading one of the Defence books Remus and Sirius bought him in fifth year. "How did you cast two spells at once Lily?" he asked to a rather angry Lily. They found him in the common room. looking for Harry. "Oh no. He didn't know why he didn't want the students to know his parents are here. I cast only one spell I don't know what happened." said Ron rubbing his stomach while Hermione shot him a disgusted look. Lily entered the infirmary with James. "Harry.Ron and Hermione quickly strode out of class." "Mr Potter! You are here for barely a week and already you are in the infirmary?" Madam Pomfrey asked.

There goes my plan… "Well." Said James with a disbelieving look at Lily. There are no side effects to this spell thought madam Pomfrey she must have lost control on her feelings. Madam Pomfrey looked shrewdly at her while she vanished the spots. He did. "H-His arrogant smile" she muttered. he did not smirk at her but looked slightly sick." Lily knew of course that she lost control of her feelings. "What made you so angry Ms Evans?" asked madam Pomfrey Lily heard a slight buzzing in her head but woke up from trying to figure them out when Madam Pomfrey talked. she wasn't ready for a question like that "What do you mean?" she asked. you are okay now Mr Potter goes back to your . She looked startled. "You know what I mean Ms Evans I doubt you want me to say it in front of Mr Potter. However.showed up with the spell. preying to god James didn't hear.

" said Harry "I have the map" James's face lit up. "Yeah. I'll go for lunch.common room. I'll be up in my dormitory if you need anything" she said to Harry and went up the stairs. "Just reading." he said. "So…Harry. what are you doing here?" Lily asked." Lily and James walked to the common room and saw Harry reading there." James didn't know what to say but a thought suddenly appeared "Do you know who the marauders were?" asked James. "Hey Harry. Okay. did you get my invisibility cloak?" asked James in an obvious attempt to start a conversation. Professor Isadora let me go early. Are you coming?" . There was an uncomfortable silence between James and Harry. "Really? You have the map? This is awesome!" he said as the bell rang "Well. Harry nodded "Professor Dumbledore gave it to me in first year. "Oh.

I'll just wait for Hermione and Ron. Ron and Hermione looked paler than a ghost did and even the professors looked a little shocked. James and Lily are Harry's parents!" The last part of the sentence was heard all over the great hall. Harry. Harry. Harry sat between James and Lily while Ron and Hermione sat in front of him. as always. Professor Dumbledore stood. Then. What am I . This is not good. "Did you see Evans's eyes? They look just like Harry's!" "Yes and Harry looks just like James!" "And with what the professor told. the mass of students turned to look at her. chose the best moment to enter the great hall. A few people gasped and immediately the hall began to whisper." When James entered the great hall for lunch all the heads immediately turned to him Can news travel that fast? Lily entered the great hall. Lily. James. They moved their eyes from Lily to James."Yes. They caught a few words from the conversations around them. where all the heads were on James.

" he said calmly. No one dared to make a sound. whom were very embarrassed. Everybody now looked at Harry. eat your meal or the house elves' work will not pay off and you'll go to sleep hungry. Ron and Hermione ate as fast as they could and went to the common room. Enjoy your meal." The hall began to eat. please. There was silence. Treat him as you usually do. They got up from the table without even noticing they did it in the same time and quickly walked out of the hall." he said. Dumbledore coughed "Now that they left I must ask you not to bother them. James and Lily. There was a complete silence as they did. Mr Potter and Ms Evans travelled from 1977.supposed to say? "Thank you Ms Abbott. Where they found Harry in the same position he was before dinner. not only because they are the future parents of Mr Potter. I hope you will respect them for who they are. this is indeed true. "Please leave me alone. No one touched the food. even without looking at them. Now. They muttered a weak "Okay" and went to the dormitories with a concerned look at each other. . I must ask you NOT to ask him about it. Mr Potter – Harry Potter I mean – had a very rough couple of years of slander and ridicule.

He put his hands on her shoulders and she jumped a little. She began to cry. looking at the ground while Harry resumed his reading. "Take my cloak." she said quietly. He picked her up to sit on his lap and she continued to sob. leaving the common room only with Harry and Lily in it. He however didn't take his hands off. He walked towards her and she didn't even notice. "You startled me." He shrugged off his cloak and put it around her. At eleven pm.The rest of the Gryffindors came a few minutes after them and did the same. Lily sat on the windowsill." she said and turned to look at him." He said and noticed she shivers a bit "You are cold. "I'm sorry. "Thanks James." he stated. He doesn't deserve it. . He wrapped his arms around her shoulder and brought her closer to him. James quietly entered the common room and spotted Lily looking at sleeping Harry." she said her voice quivering "Did you know what a difficult life he had? Parvati and Lavender told me a few days ago.

God what am I doing? Go away from him! However. She nuzzled into his chest. She is beautiful even when she is sleeping." he said and felt her nuzzling again and going back to sleep. "I don't want to" she said without thinking twice. He looked down and saw a sleeping Lily grasping his robes." he whispered and fell asleep minutes after her.She held his robes in her hands as if gripping her dear life. whatever you want Lily. James woke up and felt sour and stiff. James breathed deeply and Lily felt his chest moving up and down. "Okay. He smiled weakly and held her closer. He kissed her head "Goodnight Lily. He looked down at her. James heard her breath slowing. This is how the students found them in the morning. He looked at Harry who was still sleeping. She felt too comfortable. "Lily?" James asked." he whispered. She remembered last night's events and didn't want to move. Sleeping just . "We need to go to class. She breathed deeply. Lily woke up and felt she is sitting on someone's lap. her body did not respond to her brain's order. I can wake up that way every day.

like Lily he thought and got back to sleep.
"Harry!" someone whispered in Harry's ear "Harry! Wake up we have classes in ten minutes" "What? Hermione what are you doing in our dormitories?" Harry said groggily. "You are not in the dormitories! You are in the common room and be quiet your parents are sleeping!" she said.

My parents are sleeping? Is she mad? My parents are dead!
He opened his eyes and looked to the sleeping James and Lily "They are not my parents," he said. Hermione looked horrified. "I'm so sorry Harry! Oh god I'm sorry!" she said in a stricken voice. "It's okay. I'll see you in Potions and grab me something from breakfast," he said as he ran to get clothed. Hermione sighed and went to the great hall. "I see that Mr and Mrs Potter did not let us have the honour of their presence today," Snape sneered when class started. Harry's blood boiled.

Stay clam. Control your anger.
"Does anybody know where they are?" he asked meanly. No one raised his or her hand. "Potter where are they?" he shot to Harry. "I don't know professor" Harry lied through his teeth. "I will ask you one more time Potter, where are your parents?" Snape said in a dangerous hiss. Harry, who calmed himself earlier, grew red from anger "I don't know." "Detention Potter, tonight at 7 pm. Now, the potion you are doing today is highly…" said Snape in a satisfied voice. Lily stirred lightly and looked at sleeping James. She felt so comfortable she was ashamed. She looked at his oncehated hair. It was so tempting she wanted to ruffle his hair, just to know what it's like. She raised her hand and stroke his hair. He opened his eyes and she withdrew her hand quickly. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to wake you," she whispered. "It's alright. I am a light sleeper anyway," he said smiling and yawning.

How could I not notice his smile before?
Suddenly she noticed she was on his lap and stood "Sorry, your legs are probably numb by now." "No it's okay really, no harm done. What class do we have next?" She looked at her watch "History of Magic." James groaned, "We better go get our stuff." "Yeah" but neither of them moved they just stared into each other's eyes. Suddenly the bell rang and they walked to their dormitories quickly without another word. Lily and Hermione sat in the History of Magic class. Hermione was writing notes and for once, Lily didn't. "Lily, what's wrong?" Hermione whispered. "Umm…nothing I'm just thinking," she said. "About whom?" Hermione smiled. "Who said it was about someone?" Lily said, blushing furiously. "You were blushing. So who is the lucky guy?" she asked already knows the answer.

"Nobody…just forget about it, it's stupid anyway." Hermione smirked at her and continued to take notes. . Harry noticed James scribbling something on the corner of his parchment. When he looked closer, he saw that like in Snape's Pensive, he wrote 'L.E' "James, why don't you ask her out to Hogsmede?" Harry asked. "I already did, she said no," he said dejected. Harry somehow wasn't surprised. "Why don't you try again? I mean, she has nobody else to go with, no that everybody knows that she is from the past," Harry said gently. James seemed to think about it and a little smile was on his lips. Harry sighed with relief "Maybe you're right." "Of course I'm right," Harry said winking to Hermione, who got the clue and turned to talk to Lily "Ask her after dinner." "Lily…maybe you should go with James to Hogsmede?" Hermione suggested. "I already said no, I can't say yes now. Anyway, I'm sure he already has a date," she said a little depressed.

"Why don't you ask him if he has? I'm not sure girls would like to date someone from the past," Hermione said wisely. "Maybe you're right, I'll ask him after dinner," Lily said while Hermione winked Harry who smiled brightly. Classes past and dinner was over, James and Lily grew nervous when they went back to the common room. The rest of the Gryffindor seventh years noticed the unusual silence. "Hermione what's going on?" asked Lavender. "James is about to ask Lily out and Lily is about to ask James out. They are nervous," said Hermione. "I knew it! I knew she liked him and it's so obvious he liked her, he is staring openly at her through all classes," she said. "Yes well, we know how this love story is going to end and it's not pretty," said Hermione quietly. Lavender seemed depressed "Yeah, pity. She is one of the nicest girls I've ever met. It's not fair. I guess Harry is happy. I've never seen him so happy before." "Yeah, he is. But I guess it'll be hard for him when they go back. He'll be depressed for weeks." Hermione thought aloud.

"Fairy Wings" someone said as the portrait opened. Lavender has already spread the rumour between the Gryffindors about what's going to happen so all of the seventh years and some younger were in the common room. All of them pretending to do something while they were waiting for someone to do the next move. James stood up and everybody in the common room seemed to hold their breath as moved towards Lily who also stood up. "Uh…Lily?" he said. "James I have something to ask you," she said. "Well, I want to ask you something too. Can I go first?" James said hesitatingly. "Uh…okay than," she mumbled. "Look, Lily, I know you don't like me very much but I need to ask you just one more time. Do you want to go to Hogsmede with me?" he said quickly. "Wh-What did you say?" she said in shock. "I asked if you want to go to Hogsmede with me," he said a little louder.

The common room forgot to breath but neither of them seemed to notice that the whole Gryffindor tower was watching them. "Okay" said Lily, stunned but pleased she didn't have to ask him. "What?" he asked, doesn't want to believe. "I said I will go out with you," she said, smiling a little at the shocked expression on James's face. "Y-You will?" he stuttered. "She said yes you idiot!" Seamus yelled and James and Lily turned shocked to see the whole Gryffindor tower watching them. They soon were very red with embarrassment. "Right. Enough with this," said Harry "Go back to what you were doing before," no one wanted to mess with The-BoyWho-Lived, especially after what he did in Defence class so they went to what they did before. "You have quite an influence on them," said Lily gently to Harry. "Yes well, I doubt anyone would've even talk to me if I wasn't The-Boy-Who-Lived," he said bitterly.

"Don't talk rubbish Harry, you know it's not true," said Ron dismissively. "Whatever you say," Harry answered just as dismissively. "Harry, do you mind if I talk to you for a second?" asked James. "No, let's go to the dormitories," he said. "Harry, how about we will lighten the general mood in the school?" said James as they reached the dormitories. "What do you mean, lightning the mood?" he asked suspiciously. "I mean, how about colouring our favourite potions master?" said James. Harry moved uneasy. "Look, James, I meant to ask you this; a few years ago I ran into Snape's Pensive and uh…saw what you did to him after the Defence O.W.L," he said James looked hurt "Was that the first time you saw me?" he asked and Harry nodded.

Great James. The first thing your son knows about you is how you mistreated Snape.
"Look Harry, I really don't know what to say except I'm sorry.

Evans quite hated me then and it was a few weeks after Snape found out Remus is a werewolf," he said without thinking but then he clasped his hand to his mouth. "It's alright, I already know. Everything" he said and James looked relieved. "That's good. Sirius was a real prat; Remus didn't talk to him for about a week after. I think that was the biggest punishment he ever got. He was so sorry one day he even cried. I've never seen him cry before you know." Harry was uncomfortable with that information for some reason. "Anyway, I'm really sorry you had to see it. It's just that Snape and I never really got along. Our families are complete opposites. My family is light; my parents are Aurors and his family is dark; they are Death Eaters. We grew on completely different views of life."' "Do you think we should check on them?" asked Hermione. "Yeah," said Lily "I'll go". She climbed the stairs for the seventh years' dormitory just to hear James's voice: "Look Harry, I really don't know what to say except I'm sorry. Evans quite hated me then and it was a few weeks after Snape found out Remus is a werewolf," James said and Lily heard him clasping his hand to his mouth.

"It's alright, I already know. Everything" Harry's voice said. "That's good. Sirius was a real prat; Remus didn't talk to him for about a week after. I think that was the biggest punishment he ever got. He was so sorry one day he even cried. I've never seen him cry before you know." Lily was shocked. Sirius Black crying? "Anyway, I'm really sorry you had to see it. It's just that Snape and I never really got along. Our families are complete opposites. My family is light; my parents are Aurors and his family is dark; they are Death Eaters. We grew on completely different views of life."' Lily couldn't believe this was coming from James. "And you see when we got to Hogwarts he always trashed on Sirius and was a real ass to Lily. I couldn't let him do this to my best friend and to…" James mumbled, not wanting to relieve his feelings. Lily knocked on the door "James? Harry? Are you coming or what?" she asked knocking the door. "We'll be there in ten minutes" she heard James yell. Lily went downstairs but Harry and James continued their conversation.

Now. . the hall burst out laughing and Colin Creevey's camera worked extra hours. "I am sorry professor but the curse is about to wear off in 24 hours." Dumbledore said. Needless to say. "Now. The hall silenced. "It's no problem Harry. they suddenly heard a roar. When they sat."Thanks for telling me that James. come to my office after breakfast please. what do you say about dying Snape's hair…" In the morning. both of you. now Severus please calm down." said Harry in relief. "POTTER! I KNOW YOU DID IT! 50 POINTS FROM GRYFFINDOR AND YOU HAVE TO SERVE DETENTION FOR A MONTH! NOW GET THE CURSE OFF!" Snape roared. which quite fitted his pink nightgown and white slippers. eyes twinkling and his beard was suspiciously stretched upwards. Through the doors burst Snape wearing pink nightgown a long blond wig and a match of white bunny slippers. I really needed that. All Potions lessons are cancelled for today and Mr Potter." Said James cheekily causing Snape to turn red. the seventh years Gryffindors were making their way into the great hall.

All of the Gryffindors and Amy were on the floor. "Please continue your meal.Harry could've sworn he saw Dumbledore give James a wink. "Yes well. the teachers were laughing about the morning prank… "I missed James's pranks on Snape so much! I can't believe how long it's been. The day passed and in the staff room. their little family… Can you deny that young Mr Potter is the Prince of Defence Against the Dark Arts?" "No I can't. James noticed. we all missed them. Lily and Ron was whipping their eyes with their sleeves." said McGonagall "How could we not miss the King of Transfiguration and Queen of Charms? Rulers of their little kingdom." said Amy wiping her eyes as sudden sadness came over her "I just can't believe that they are here! It's so difficult!" "I know Amy. I know but you must control yourself." said ." said Dumbledore and sat down to talk to professor McGonagall who. A very small one but James thought that McGonagall was laughing it was worth it since she never did laugh. Laughing their head off." said Amy. had a smile on her face.

" squeaked professor Flitwick in agreement "Even Ms Granger isn't as good as she is." "Well." "But Albus. "I missed having Ms Evans in my classes. I know. we cannot change the past. "I am aware of that but it seems like Mr Lupin and Ms Isadora do not remember an encounter like that in the past. he has a very good reason to be.Minerva sadly. The teachers immediately moved to give professor Dumbledore space to sit. This is a surprise for you. "I know this might be a shock you a little but we can save Lily and James Potter from a horrible death and prevent Harry's difficult life." said Minerva." There was silence." said a voice from the door. ." "True" said professor Sprout "Have you noticed Harry looks better?" A few murmurs sounded like "Yeah. "Lemon Drop anyone?" asked professor Dumbledore as he took one from his pocket "It seems like we will not have to erase their memory when they come back.

Ron was sitting on the sofa – fidgeting and Harry was chatting with Neville. Harry looked up as the girls came and looked back to the floor." said Ginny curtly. James was standing near the girls' staircases. Ron will faint in the spot.*Chapter 9*: Chapte 9: Heartache Heartache Without anyone noticing. She led the girls down the stairs. "James will have a fit. "Lily honey you look gorgeous!" squeaked Lavender in a very girlish way that made Ginny. waiting for them to arrive. his face burning." teased Parvati. I am a coward he mentally scolded . Hermione's face was scarlet from embarrassment." said Hermione with a slight grin. The boys were already waiting for them. we better go down. well. "Look who's talking Hermione. who was putting on her jumper to roll her eyes. "Yes. Seamus and Dean who agreed to go with him to Hogsmede. September 26 arrived and all of the girls were fussing in their dormitories for the upcoming trip to Hogsmede.

Turns out I was wrong" said James. They were so engrossed with themselves they didn't even notice the others were behind them. He did not know how he never noticed her body curves. "Lily. Shall we?" she said and he nodded and James offered her his arm. Lily laughed "Chocolate frogs? It's so gross. Her hair was up in a ponytail and her makeup was in light green shade. He looked at Lily." "Why thank you James. and three quartered black pants.himself. She looked stunning with her blow-dried hairstyle. Ron looked at Hermione in awe. James took Lily to Honeydukes where he bought her the newest and best chocolate." James managed to wheeze "You look…amazing. She looked gorgeous and Harry bit his lip in disappointment. she was wearing a long and tight black shirt. Just then. I thought no chocolate is better then the one on the chocolate frogs." she said and . She wore a black knee-long tight skirt and a tight brown shirt. the other boys noticed the girls were in the common room: James was open mouthed. "You know. When they arrived to Hogsmede.

" he said jokingly and Lily pinched his arm playfully. not all the girls fall for that." she said with her head hung in defeat. They arrived to The Three Broomsticks five minutes late . Wanna go to Zonkos?" James changes the subject . "If I thought it is going to be insufferable do you think I would have come?" she asked." she said with an amused expression "In what hour did we say we meet the others?" "Six.laughed at the horrified expression on James's face "But this chocolate is simply stunning" she nodded in agreement. Nevertheless. James shot her a million-gallon smile which made her knees go weak. "Not as stunning as you. They spent the day walking between shops laughing and teasing each other and Lily had to admit she never had a better date. "You got me there. "Are you using lines with me Potter? You know. "You cannot live without your pranks and I don't want you dead anytime soon so lead the way. Lily blushed.Lily rolled her eyes." James said and mentally slapped himself for the lame pick-up line. You have three more hours to suffer with me.

your godfather is -" Before Malfoy even had the chance to say anything else. if you don't want to turn out worse than a ferret you better move your ass away from here. So tell me Potter. Harry kept glancing at her but was jolted out of his sweet dream-land by a drawling voice behind him. they were all in a good mood. "Sorry.A members here. "After all. laughing and joking with each other. her red hair framing her face. enjoying your parents as long as you can? I suppose these are the best day of your life aren't they?" Harry didn't need to turn to recognise the voice. how is your precious godfather these days." said Ginny. Oh wait. in any other day people would die around you. ." said Harry. "What do you want to order dears?" asked Madam Rosemerta. "So…Potter." said Lily blushing. nine wands were directed to him. "Nice of you to show up" bit Ron. she was never late. "Malfoy. "Eleven Butterbeers please. quickly counting. I forgot.and saw that everybody was waiting for them impatiently. we have nine D. After an hour or so.

but they were all very happy they weren't Harry's enemies." Harry said. none from Slytherin did. when the Dark Lord will hear your Mudblood mother and blood traitor father are here. "What?" Harry asked as everybody looked at him. go tell your master I'm challenging him to come and get me.making her look wild and dangerous. No one admitted it. so now all of the students could join." said Hermione and James whistled in surprise. Ron and I established in our fifth year. Harry's the teacher." he said. Many members joined and to the delight of everyone. not a trace of fear in his voice and his emerald green eyes radiating with power. he will make sure you will never be born. Dumbledore wanted to make DA an official school group. "Well. Malfoy looked taken aback and a bit frightened "You wait Potter. Malfoy went rather quickly out of the Three Broomsticks. "What's DA?" asked James. Leaving an awkward silence after him. . now I'm shaking Malfoy. "What does DA stands for?" asked Lily in interest. "It was a secret organisation Harry. We learn practical defence.

Harry had a sudden idea about the next lesson."Well." said Ron. ." said Hermione. checking her wrist watch carefully." said Ginny with pride. "Minister Fudge did not believe that you-know-who is back and they thought that Dumbledore is forming an army against the ministry so we decided to form a secret organization for those who wish to know how to fight against you-know-who. it was at first Defence Association but turned to be Dumbledore's Army. James followed Lily to the girls' staircases. "That would be great." said James and Lily at the same time and everybody laughed. "Why Dumbledore's Army?" asked James in confusion. James why don't you and Lily join?" asked Harry. "Well. "Hey. When the group reached the common room. the ministry-" Harry snorted and Ron continued "and minister Fudge-" But Hermione was interrupted by James "Minister Fudge? Cornelius Fudge? That pompous Hufflepuff sixth year?" he asked and Harry nodded in confirmation. we better go back to school it's almost seven. "Because at the time.

" Lily said and kissed him on the cheek "Thanks. blushing a little at the closeness. James looked in a large volume of "Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts. When Harry heard about what they should do the assignment he groaned quietly and Ron was giggling in a very unmanly like way. why should I regret it? I had a wonderful time" she said in confusion. Goodnight Lily" he said. James smiled "You don't regret it than?" "No. Amy decided that for after they revised the basic defence they should do a little research about who the Dark Lord is and about his first downfall. "Never mind. looking for information about you-know-who for a three-foot essay for Defence Against the Dark Arts."I had a great time today James thank you" Lily said. they still had a foot to write. "Goodnight James. After they wrote about whom you-know-who is. Leaving James slightly shocked but extremely happy." she whispered and went to the dormitories." . A few weeks after Hogsmede. James and Lily were in the library.

Shortly afterwards. He killed James and Lily Potter. ripping him from his body. the most powerful Dark Wizard ever. Harry Potter was born on July 31st to Lily and James Potter. Lily died attempting to protect her son. The Dark Lord searched frantically for the child to kill him after he found out that the boy answers the description of his destroyer. "Prophesy?" asked Lily in confusion and shock. the residence of the Potters."Lily. it rebounded upon Voldemort. and his powers gone." he said in a croaked voice "Come look here" Lily began to read: In 1979. on October 31st. God I love her so much. Voldemort realized that he must find and kill that child. Voldemort knew only a small part of the prophecy. Voldemort found out about a prophecy that had been made about him and a boy who would kill him. turned the curse that had killed so many witches and wizard on young Harry Potter. When Voldemort. However. who was the next intended victim. 1981. Voldemort went to Godric's Hollow. but the Potters were well hidden and he was unsuccessful. "What do you think?" he asked looking in her eyes. . a spy close to the Potters betrayed them and.

"Uh…Sugar Quills" she tried the password breathlessly "No? uh…Sugar Plum? Chocolate Frogs? Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans? Exploding Bon-Bons? Droobles? Come on open up you stupid gargoyle! Pepper Imps? Fudge Flies?" She said and the gargoyle jumped aside "Is this some kind . "What did you say afterwards?" she snapped impatiently. She has got to get some answers right now. How did she know what I was thinking? Lily's pupils widened Can I read his mind? her mind yelled. concerned. in panic ran out of the library towards professor Dumbledore's office. Are you okay Lily?" he asked. "I didn't say anything. THAT was not expected. "I asked 'What do you think?'" he answered. Lily. taken aback from her sudden iciness. What is wrong with her? "Nothing is wrong with me!" she practically yelled."What did you say Potter?" she said narrowing her eyes.

"Although I searched it for you a lot of times in the past. "I do not love Potter!" she yelled in indignation and Dumbledore. "Yes indeed Ms Evans. James and I were in the library doing something for Defence homework and suddenly I was able to read Potter's mind.of a pun?" she asked herself loudly." she said looking into Dumbledore's eyes. She sat on one of the comfortable armchairs and he offered her Lemon drop to which she refused politely. Lily blushed "I am aware of your ability to read other people's mind. she did not notice she was already in his office. "Is there a reason you came to talk to me?" he asked politely. If she only knew how much she loved him back then. You discovered it after you graduated. I'm afraid I do not have answers to that." he said calmly. . although surprised ." "Why?" she asked." he said. Professor." Dumbledore said pleasantly and Lily jumped. "I never said you do. "Yeah.did not show it.

now what? "You will have dreams every once in a while. There are a few things we need to discuss. what if I see something really embarrassing?" she asked."Okay. Oh great. now he doesn't want to look at me anymore "Uh…okay. horrified in the prospect of invading other people's dreams." she said turning to the door. I'll just go." Oh no." "But professor. there are a few things in addition to this new ability. "First." She said. "When does it happen?" "All the time." he said. you will be able to be inside other students' dreams and sometimes you will have premonitions. Sometimes." She nodded in understanding. It may cause trouble. you must not tell anyone of your ability to read other peoples' mind. "Secondly." Dumbledore said quietly and turned his eyes to Fawkes who was standing on his perch quietly. . Not waiting for an answer he continued. "Wait a moment Ms Evans.

How did Lily know what he was thinking? She can't read minds can she? But his thoughts were interrupted by a rather bewildered Lily. "Nobody knows how to refer to fate so we just refer it as 'he'" he said. What the hell is wrong with her? But in the exact moment."Do not worry. Off you go." She sounded hopeless." he said dismissively. No pun intended." he said with a little chuckle at his own joke. James was concerned." she started. Lily lifted her gaze to James and she was able to hear him. You will see only dreams fate wants you to see. "What do you mean by he?" she asked even not slightly amused by the pun." "Fate? What do you mean fate?" she asked a little harsher than she meant. I believe you have things to do and people to meet. You and Mr Potter were transferred here because of fate and fate will let you see only what he sees fatal. "James I'm sorry about before. not moving her eyes "I don't know what happened. This is very similar to the Muggle theory about everything happens for a reason. . "Fate. "Now.

"Didn't know you care Potter" she said rather snappishly. NO." She squeaked. "Are you sure? I didn't mean to startle you. Has she been listening to what I've been telling her for the . "But you'll miss dinner!" he said in concern." he said and Lily found herself giggling at the inner debate in James's head. its okay." he said reassuringly. "What's so funny?" he asked. Now that's just creepy Gee thanks she thought to herself So much for the love and caring Potter… "I think I'll just go to sleep" she mumbled. NO! I'M NOT SURE! "Yes I'm sure. IT'S NOT OKAY! His mind screamed and Lily took a step back from the sudden noise in her head. Has she gone bonkers ! "No! I'm not gone bonkers!" she yelled before she could stop herself."Don't worry.

DREAM Everything was blur. "Sirius! Sirius! We can still save him. help me Remus what are you doing? SIRIUS!" Lily was panicked she now knew she had seen a dream. She heard a muffle talking and a sudden flash of red light followed by yells and a talking muffled voice END DREAM Lily woke up with a yelp. "Fine. She realized she just saw either a premonition or a dream. sleep tight" he said while going out the portrait. .last couple of years or is she just playing hard to get? He asked while rolling his eyes not noticing Lily's eyes narrowing with his thoughts. not waiting for an answer "No this was a long day" she muttered and went to sleep. whatever. A sudden yell from the boys dormitories startled her. "Shit! Can't Madam Pomfrey give his some Dreamless Sleep Potion or something? It's over a year now honestly!" Lily heard Parvati saying indignantly.

what the hell is wrong with Harry? "Harry! Harry! Wake up mate! Come on mate wake up" yelled Ron in Harry's ear." said Hermione harshly and before tucking back into bed shot a fearful look at the tearstained face of Lily. "Ius. "Never you mind Lavender good night. Harry suddenly bolted up sweaty and tearstained. Someone was screaming near him. Only after Harry relaxed. which was odd because James was sure Harry's screams could wake up the dead.Sirius! We can still save him. help me Remus what are you doing? SIRIUS!" James was bewildered. it was clearly visible that the tower was used to Harry's screams because no one came to check on him. "Sorry guys. James woke up with a start." He said weakly. All of the seventh year's boys were now near Harry's bed and he watched them while he was regaining his senses.Hermione was whimpering quietly and the screams stopped. James's brain understood the . "Who is this Sirius anyway?" asked Lavender sleepily.

information he got a few minuets earlier. All through breakfast. Sirius. Poor thing he said and without a thought. He quickly got back to bed. During class. Harry is reliving the moments all over again. she heard James's thoughts no matter how hard she tried to stop it. even though she was able to do it the second attempt in the DA meetings. "Watch where you're going Mudblood" he snarled viciously. a muffled groan escaped his mouth. Lily was having a bad morning. He now faced three confused faces and two understanding ones." . she was one of the last ones to do the Shielding Charm correctly. Lily ignored him and walked to class where she found out she was late for class for the first time in her life. "Lily what's wrong with you?" said Hermione in worry after the class was over "You are not yourself since this morning. Last night's events left her eyes puffy and two black bags appeared under eyes. She was too shocked and appalled from the loving thoughts he is having towards her that she didn't notice Malfoy running into her on her way to Defence class.

"Well."Oh. James is worried about you though. Potter and I were working on the project for Defence yesterday and suddenly I heard…I heard…" "You heard what?" inquired Hermione. "Fine. "You don't mean that. ." Once in the dormitory." said Hermione quietly and Lily sighed. I won't tell anyone. Look. it's too loud in the common room. What's wrong? "I'm sorry Hermione I don't know what's wrong with me. "That's okay. sensing she is uncomfortable. Let's go to our dorm. "I know. Lily began to twitch "You don't have to tell me if you don't want to" said Hermione. "Why should I care about Potter?" she said harshly. and you know me?" snapped Lily without thinking." she said in fear. Very ashamed at herself." she said and Lily's eyes clouded a bit." said Lily quietly. you see. If I tell you something. do you promise not to tell anyone? I don't want people to be afraid of me or something.

. She was up a few moments before Harry began screaming. "L-Lily you have to go to Dumbledore!" yelped Hermione. Lily however. Hermione's eyes widened and she stuttered." muttered Lily and Hermione gasped. Wait a minuet. Hermione sat in silence and thought. This is freaky." Lily blurted it all in one sentence. Hermione opened her mouth to ask Lily but Lily reacted before "That's what I thought too. was able to hear what she was thinking She is able to see other peoples' dreams. leaving Hermione bewildered." She said quietly." she whispered." said Lily "He said it was because fate wanted it to be like that. "I already did and he said I am able to do that and to see other people's dreams."I heard what he was thinking. "Tell me about it. She saw his dream. wonder how she'll react to Harry's.

" said the figure called Lucius in a silky voice. you saw Sirius die yesterday. my son brought an interesting news for me yesterday. "I suppose the dreams will become more focused in time. It was nighttimes and she was in another dream." she finally said."So…so…it's true. Hermione's eyes clouded. "What news have you got Lucius?" she heard herself ask. . "I only heard muffled voices and saw blurs. Days have gone by and Lily was getting used to hearing people thoughts." Lily nodded. She was afraid she would say it to her. "Master. DREAM Two figures in black robed were standing in front of her. "What is it Malfoy?" she asked again in the cold voice. Lily sat in silence. but it wasn't in her normal voice." "If I'm not mistaken. it was in a cold high pitched voice." "Of course it is. and she lowered her head. Can you tell me what exactly was in that dream?" she asked.

" "I see. Wormtail?" she said to the second figure. "If you will come without valuable information the Cruciatus will look like kitten next to what you'll suffer." she heard Peter's voice saying in fear. I want to know everything possible about your little friends." said Lucius with what Lily recognised as a bow. They are seventeen." he said and laughed his horrible laughter." "Y-Yes M-Master" Peter stuttered. . "Is that so?" he asked "and how exactly did they come?" "He does not know master. "Go explore Hogwarts. They burst through the door and saw all of the seventh years boys gathered around Harry who was clutching his forehead. END DREAM "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" someone screamed and Lily shot out of bed immediately and ran to the boys dormitories with Hermione."The parents of the Potter boy came from the past. "Yes my lord.

I suggest you all to be cautious and not talk about . "Now Mr Potter. Harry shot Ron a dirty look and turned back to look at the headmaster "Voldemort was happy. "Well." he said in a hollow voice looking at James for some reaction. Ron. Only a few minutes later. Mr Weasley said you muttered something before you passed out. Lily immediately understood and James and Ron carried Harry to the hospital wing while Lily and Hermione went to fetch the headmaster. Malfoy said that Draco told him that Lily and James are here as seventh years and Voldemort asked Wormtail to explore Hogwarts. Lily and Dumbledore were around Harry's bed in the hospital wing. "I see. would you like to share it with us?" the headmaster asked in a gentle voice. But James's jaw was set. James."Voldemort – knows – Wormtail – explore" he said before passing out." he said shortly. anything else?" "Voldemort threatened Wormtail with a painful Cruciatus Curse if he wouldn't bring valuable information. Hermione.

In the mean time. looking at Hermione for confirmation. . surprising even himself at the cold tone of his voice. followed by Lily. "Probably even tonight. Lily was catching up." said Dumbledore and went. "So he has visions of what you-know-who is doing and feeling?" she asked Hermione. we just have to take it with us to wherever we go. "You're right." Hermione said and Ron nodded gloomily. How long do you think it's gonna take him to get here?" he asked. he made that false vision of Sirius. James caught what Harry is implying "Yeah I have it. "Fifteen for all we know. Hermione and Ron. "Yeah. but Voldemort was able to trick him two years ago.crucial things in the halls. he has it since we were I don't know fourteen? Fifteen?" said Ron." He spat as he said the last words. do you have the marauders map?" asked Harry. what do you recon?" "Well." Harry said gloomily. even classes and watch it carefully for any sign of the rat. "James.

but Sirius wasn't. "Which is probably why you-know-who was after him in the first place. "You know. "Yeah. Peter? To the dark side? That's impossible." He spat. "You know." Lily said. Sirius wasn't there until later. . utterly confused. Harry was bought it and we went to the Department of Mysteries and realized we were tricked. someone weak from the very inner circle of the enemy." Lily said." said Ron "But we have to be careful anyway. we never understood why he was hanging with them. We were lucky to come out alive. glassy eyed."Vision of Sirius?" asked Lily. he planted in Harry's mind a vision of Sirius been tortured in the Department of Mysteries to lead Harry there. he is weak and doesn't have a backbone." said Hermione thoughtfully. There was silence. However. "Oh. Potter is a chaser and the Quidditch Capitan now Head Boy and his grades are one of the tops and Remus is smart and handsome. "We don't. He fell through a death veil there" she finished the story. I still do not believe Peter did all this stuff. we don't want little rats running to our feet. How do you know if this one is not a trick?" asked Lily. Black is a beater and his grades are one of the best.

"Remus IS handsome. "He was one of our professors!" exclaimed Ron in disgust "Why are you getting those ideas to our innocent little heads?" Lily smacked him on the head. much more than Potter and Black even though I admit. "Whatever you say. "Well. "What? No way! I'm not!" "Is too!" "Am not!" . cheeks and neck turning deep crimson color.Ron and Hermione made disgusted voiced "What?" she asked." said Hermione in a grossed voice." said Lily in triumph and watched Hermione's face turn red and Ron's ears. "Look who's talking. you are absolutely adore James! And you're in denial" said Hermione in last attempt to save her pride. Black does have nice muscles." she said watching their faces twisting in disgust with amusement. you can't admit it because you are already smitten with someone else.

"Don't you guys have something better to do?" asked Lily rather rudely." yelled Ron above all the noise because they just entered the common room and all of the student were watching the Head Girl yelling on her best friend's mom. .Because." said Hermione and strode to the girls dormitory followed by a very angry redhead girl. "You don't even KNOW how muscular Sirius Black really is!" said Lily in triumph.Because I had no one else to go with!" "I rest my case. Everybody turned their head and continued their work. "Yes you are! Otherwise. "Because. "I do not adore James Potter. And I'm not in denial!" said Lily to Hermione."Is too!" "Am not!" "Is too!" "Would you shut up! This discussion is over. why did you let him take you to Hogsmede?" Hermione said in triumph.

looking everywhere to a sign of them. There ." said Hermione in horror "I'm so sorry Lily" she said and silent tears ran down her cheeks. "Erg…that's just disgusting! I'll never marry that jerk!" she exclaimed. "I'm so sorry. she saw James sitting on the floor. It was now near dawn and Lily was now walking towards the Astronomy Tower. "But I won't in mine!" said Lily and clasped her hand to her mouth as she turned around to leave and saw one confused face. She didn't know what to do. There." Hermione pointed out." said Hermione and Lily gave a sound of disgust. his arms in his lap. She just stood there. slightly embracing himself."And I don't want to know thank you very much Mrs Potter. She didn't know what to think. Ron immediately ran to her hugging her close. the door to the dormitory opened and Harry. Hermione noticed though Lily didn't. he was followed by Harry. "You did in our time. James and Ron entered. Lily stood there in a state of shock. one horror-struck face and one hurt face who turned around and shut the door behind him. Two seconds afterwards. "Well? What are you waiting for? Go after them!" said Ron and Lily literally ran out of the room.

"James…" she started meekly." he merely nodded but did not look at her." he said and left leaving Lily on the floor of the Astronomy Tower. I mean." he said. She turned to him. that was my dream since fourth year. "That's all right. She watched with him until the sun was completely up. silently crying. turning to look at her with fierce hazel eyes "I am sorry. He laughed bitterly. as he did not look at her. Lily heard him and had to agree with him. but you deserve better. I really did.was no sign of tears on his cheeks and he was inhaling and exhaling slowly. you and me in the future with a child. I AM a jerk. I didn't do anything he thought sadly. though not looking at her." He said looking to the sky." he said to Lily. I knew it was all too good to be true. "No Lily. You are right. This isn't fair. . "I'm sorry" she said quietly. She took a deep breath and her heart ached a bit. "It is beautiful here at dawn. "It's the best view here at dawn. I tried. Nothing he said or done in the past weeks made him deserve this kind of treatment.

turning to look at her with fierce hazel eyes "I am sorry. I tried. "James…" she started meekly. He laughed bitterly. I knew it was all too good to be true. "That's all right. "I'm sorry" she said quietly. that was my dream since fourth year." He said looking to the sky. Confrontations Lily was crying for a good couple of minutes before she ." he said and left leaving Lily on the floor of the Astronomy Tower. Nothing he said or done in the past weeks made him deserve this kind of treatment. I mean. "It is beautiful here at dawn. I really did. I didn't do anything he thought sadly. "No Lily. I AM a jerk. silently crying. This isn't fair." he said." he merely nodded but did not look at her. you and me in the future with a child.*Chapter 10*: Chapter 10: Confrontations Recap: She turned to him. but you deserve better. You are right. Lily heard him and had to agree with him.

"Lily-" "And it just came out! And I turned and saw-" . "God! I'm so sorry Harry! I didn't mean what I said! It was just the heat of the moment.realised she hurt Harry too. "Lily-" "And then she said something about James-" she blabbered. "James?" she asked the familiar shade of messy black hair. "Not quite. She will have to go apologise to Harry too. "You'll cause yourself concussion if you keep with it." the voice said and moved to the light. Lily immediately leaped to her feet. Lily immediately threw her arms around Harry." a quiet voice said near her. Harry was looking at the tearstained Lily with a frown on his face. Hermione was teasing me-" she sobbed into his shirt. hitting her head on the wall behind her. as if trying to figure her out. "God! I didn't mean it!" she moaned in despair.

Lily's eyes suddenly welled with tears yet again. "He said that I deserve better and that he is an idiot…I don't want this." she repeated in misery. Did you see James?" he asked in an attempt to change the subject. "I'm so sorry." she exclaimed loudly. I'll get over it." "And…" he said softly. noticing her tears."Lily! It's all right!" said Harry in a tone slightly higher than his regular tones. I don't want to brag but I've been through a lot in my life and I know that arguments and fights will get me nowhere." "It won't be all right!" she exclaimed angrily "He hates me now and it will be a lot of goddamn time until he'll talk to me . "Look Lily. He didn't want to hear my explanations at all!" Harry embraced her again "Shh…" he tried to calm her awkwardly "It'll be all right. tears forming in her eyes again. looking down. "It's not! I just insulted you and James! How can you forgive me that easily?" she asked." He said. Yes. "I don't want him to hate me. "Yeah. what you said hurt me a lot but. "Like I said. I can get over it.

"Forget what I just said. "All right don't kill me. "And…" he pushed and Lily looked utterly displeased to continue." she sniffed." he said in a menacing tone." "Lily. I'm warning you…" Harry said in what he thought was a menacing voice." she warned. "Uh…it's a fan club. "Go on. "But you're not going to like it. "Nothing!" she said again." She said with a blush and Harry knew it wasn't the end. in a slightly higher tone. Lily looked at him in horror "Nothing" she said in a shrill voice. "Lily." "Ah…HJPFC is a secret organisation in the school. Harry opened his mouth to say that they can track Wormtail down but the words tumbled in his way to his mouth and he asked her "What's HJPFC? he frowned." Harry gave her the look again. "OK! . Harry gave her an approving nod.again. And now Peter will be at the castle and no one knows how to stop him! How am I suppose to avoid those HJPFC girls now?" she sobbed.

or so they told me. "Very funny." She smiled mischievously and Harry groaned and banged his head on the wall behind him. Harry looked at her oddly. WHY in the devil's name. they formed it last year. "You'll cause yourself a concussion if you keep with it.It's a fan club for you and James!" she exclaimed. just like Lily did a few minutes before. someone will consider me handsome? "Don't be so hard on yourself Harry." she said without thinking and Harry looked at her doubtfully. you are a quite a charming young man." he said testily." Lily mocked Harry. Lily blushed. When James came. What in the devil's name! "You see. they added the 'J' to the name. They think you guys are really handsome. "No!" she said in scandalised tone. . you have a lot of fans and admirers in the school. "Are you a member?" he blurted.

and cannot see a downright handsome face in front of me. you are quite muscular if you hadn't noticed and your eyes." he said looking at the floor and luckily." She said and Harry turned red in the spot. "Uh…well. because Lily's mouth opened in horror. sometimes I just feel like you can read minds. "Not to mention you are very nice to people." she said before she could think." he asked in what he thought was a bored tone. standing and stretching. . let's just say I can read people quite well. "You know." yawned Harry." She is supposed to be my future mother. although not so fitting to the tough guy image you have in school."Enlighten me. It was a long night. your hair is lovely and totally fits your face. are quite nice in the complex of your face. the fact that I'm supposed to be your mother in the future doesn't mean I am not a woman. let's go to the dormitory. how embarrassing is this? "Don't be embarrassed. though Lily could identify the curiosity behind it. "But what about classes?" she asked as they went. well. "Well." she said lamely but Harry seemed to have bought it. she didn't notice she was responding to his thoughts. I want to sleep. "Right.

she doesn't know they are Animagus! "It's okay Harry. Lily heard him of course and silently laughed." he said without thinking and suddenly looked at Lily with fear. It shows the castle and the movement in it. "What's so funny?" he asked. "Don't worry about it."It is Saturday today. goodnight Harry" she said and went up the stairs to her dormitory. The map can't lie so that little rat can't hide even in his Animagi form. I know they are Animagus. "Right. I'm not supposed to tell you about it but I have a map of Hogwarts. Oh damn. no need to look so horrified. remember?" he said in amusement." She said. "How are we going to track Peter?" she said quietly. When they reached the common room. mentally smacking herself. James told me." she said. "Oh nothing" she said "Well. quite amused at the relived expression on Harry's face. Lily asked. That was close…I need to keep my mouth shut more often he thought. Harry reached his dormitory and saw James looking at the .

crossing his arms over his chest. No wonder people ." said Harry in a would-be casual voice. I swear. "Good." James said gloomily.wall a very sad and determined look on his face. right?" he asked in sort of awe. "You know. "Did you know we have a fan club?" James looked at him in surprise. Harry laughed." said Harry with a small smile." He repeated. I'm fine. "No. sitting on his bed and watching James. "You're kidding. "Good. "Is she a member?" James asked immediately." said Harry. are you okay?" Harry asked in worry. Lily told me. "Did you guys sort things out?" "Yes we did in a matter of a fact. "I talked to Lily." said James. that's exactly what I asked. James turned to look at him. How am I supposed to tell him I gave up on Lily? "Yeah. "James.

Hermione apologised to her again. you like him. the moment his head touched the pillow. . she didn't get any. She kept rolling in her mind the events of the last hours. she was tossing and turning in her bed trying to get some sleep. and after reassuring it's okay.always telling me I'm like you. "What's so funny if I may ask?" Ron said. Lily was a different story." said James and surprisingly. "Thanks Ron. I'm going to bed." James and Harry laughed as Ron entered the room. he was asleep." said Harry and James together and they were attacked by another fit of laughter. "Nothing. raising his eyebrows at their unusual behaviour after Lily's slap on their faces. said the annoying voice in her voice. She couldn't believe she was stupid enough to say this especially after she began to like James. See? I told you. "You two are mental. after she reached the dormitory." said Ron rolling his eyes. Lily went to sleep. However.

She sighed. Harry found himself spending more time with Ginny. Lily had a dream. The room was full of commotion. which looked like an amphitheatre.Shut up. In the middle of the room. DREAM She was standing in a dim-lighted room. She was holding someone and suddenly heard a yell. Lily had a dream. He was battling with a female Death Eater that looked suspiciously like Bellatrix Black. A few days later. you can do better than that!" She looked towards the old archway and saw someone that looked like Sirius only he looked a lot thinner and not healthy. Sirius's cousin. Days passed. after a particularly awkward evening in the common room. an old archway was standing proud with a veil hung on it. Lily and James weren't talking to each other. It drove Harry batty and they knew it. just so he could avoid the uneasiness. she fell asleep. "Come on. when did life became so difficult? And with that thought. One night. .

She saw Sirius's body fall into the veil and disappear. "SIRIUS!" she bellowed "SIRIUS!" She felt herself being grabbed around the chest and struggled against the person that was holding her. She had released the person she was holding and pulled her wand out. save him. She felt her heart beating faster. She felt her lips moving again. His voice was trembling and quiet. he's only just gone through!" "-It's too late. "Get him. "We can still reach him-" she moved to get out of the strong grip. She heard Bellatrix's triumph scream and felt her lips moving. "There's nothing you can do Harry…nothing…he's gone.A jet of red light was shot from Bellatrix's wand and hit Sirius square on the chest." "He hasn't gone!" she yelled and a feeling of emptiness and grief filled her "SIRIUS! SIRIUS!" . Harry" the person who grabbed her said.

He can't come back. The yells from the boy's dormitories stopped so everybody were going back to sleep. "Did you see it all?" tears formed in Lily's eyes and she nodded. "Lily?" she whispered. turning. Lily was staying in the bed near Hermione so she could hear her breathing. Sirius still had an amused look in his eyes and—" . because he's d—" "HE – IS – NOT – DEAD!" she screamed as loud as she could "SIRIUS!" END DREAM Lily was tossing. "It was horrible. Lily and Hermione weren't though." she said with a sob "I never saw anything so sad in my life."He can't come back Harry. Lily opened her eyes weakly and shot a questioning look to Hermione. And Hermione was the only one to understand what was happening to her. yelling and crying just like the boy who was just a few rooms away. Her roommates seemed surprised as the yells Harry would made sometimes were now coming from Lily.

"Are you okay?" she asked and he nodded. Lily nodded and stood up." She said. "Harry?" she said quietly. the fire is burning and you can think there. Lily was scared. He was feeling so depressed Hermione. The boy looked up to her and she remembered something that Lavender told her "That was horrible." and indeed.Hermione got up and hugged Lily who continued to mumble "and Harry kept repeating that he's not dead. I'd die if I had all these horrible feelings. A boy that always had a smile on his face was falling apart. She saw a messy black haired boy lying on the sofa. Silent tears were leaking from his eyes. She didn't expect anyone to be there. Hermione just gave her an encouraging look before crawling into her bed and hearing the door click as it shut." she said with a hug. "Thank you Hermione. "Shh…" Hermione tried to calm her "Are you tired?" Lily shook her head "Why don't you go to the common room. A boy that always was a source of power and bravery was lying on a sofa and crying." She said and sobbed harder into Hermione's nightgown. . Lily went to the common room.

" he said and wiped his tears. I'm sorry you had to live with bloody Petunia and all of the things you went through." "I'm sorry. You weren't there. "It was none of your fault. "And I'm sorry you had to lose Sirius and-" she said tearfully. "James hates me doesn't he?" Harry stayed silent. "The girls told me and I looked up in the library about Sirius. Harry froze "How do you know all that stuff? How do you know about Sirius?" he asked stiffly. He didn't know what to say to her . you didn't do anything." he whispered harshly. his soft demeanour dissolving." "No." She said tears now forming in her eyes in what seemed to be the thousand time this month. They stood embraced for a couple of minutes before Lily talked again. I'm sorry." she said quietly he shook his head." Harry came up and embraced her. "What for? You didn't do anything wrong."It's nothing. don't worry about it. do you hear me? Don't you dare blame yourself because you didn't do a thing. "Really.

"I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good. "shut up Wormtail." Something clicked in Harry's mind and his eyes widened. Harry stopped dead. No one was there. He looked at her and saw she was sleeping. After a few minutes of silence. He knew that squeak. Harry noticed Lily's breath was slower. He quickly shot out of bed and searched his trunk for the Marauder's Map. Harry's breaths quickened and his blood was boiling rapidly.because James avoided the issue of Lily at all costs and refused even to look at her. Before he came up the stairs. He shrugged and climbed into bed before he heard that squeak again. inside something that looked like the corner of the room. He lit his wand in a more powerful lightning charm and searched in the corner of the room for any signs of the . He lifted her to the sofa and summoned her blanket. He climbed the stairs to his dormitory before he heard a little squeak. And indeed. James mumbled in his sleep something that sounded like. He lit his wand and looked around. he kissed Lily's forehead." he whispered and looked at the part of the map that was the boy's dormitories. a label called "Peter Pettigrew" was not moving.

squeaking from time to time. a filthy fat rat was lying. "Harry? What's going on?" James said sleepily. He didn't know he woke James up. "Wormtail is here. And there he was. as if electricity shot ran through him. The yell woke the other boys in the dormitory." He said shortly. "What have you done Wormtail?" he murmured and then. Harry's temper rose. He heard footsteps then a little squeak. James's eyes widened and he snatched his wand and glasses from the nightstand.rat. He looked almost the same as he did in his time. "Stupefy!" A beam of hot red light shot out of his wand and stunned Wormtail. "That little rat!" He stood and walked to the corner. James stirred. His face was heating up and he had to fight very hard not to squash the little rat under his leg until he died. "Gained some weight didn't you Wormtail? Your master feeding you good?" A voice murmured in the dark. Harry frowned. . He looked at Peter. at the very corner of the room. he yelled.

Professor McGonagall took a step back from the poison in Harry's voice. "Yes. "What's wrong Harry. That rat. He is stunned though." Said Harry slowly and venomously. still watching the rat. "Is that?" He asked slowly as he saw what Harry and James were glaring at. "A rat? You mean…" she trailed off. Mr Potter?" said a stern voice from the door."What's going on?" "Who yelled?" "Someone get a professor please!" said Harry. "There is no way in the world I'm going to sleep now . "Wormtail? Yeah. Mr Potter. Neville walked sleepily out of the dorm. I would now suggest that you go-" she said." asked Ron." Professor McGonagall strode into the room and summoned the rat from the floor." said James in contempt. "Thank you for the information. James turned around but Harry didn't move an inch. "A little rat paid us a little visit professor. "What is wrong.

"I'm also Mr Potter professor. Harry stifled a chuckle. please lower your voice it is four o'clock in the morning!" she snapped "You may stay awake for all I care Mr Potter but the rest of you is going back to sleep. "Mr Potter. Professor McGonagall glared at him and pointed to the bed. "W-What?" Harry stammered. "Thanks. James smirked.professor." Harry said." said James. raising his voice. the professor's lips pursed even more. "Are we going to follow her or what?" he asked. She was just stunned at first but soon her face turned white and her lips were pursed. Professor McGonagall face was changing at the words. and she huffed in indignation and left. James however remained still. How do you expect me to go to sleep when he is right here?" Harry was yelling at this point." She said and watched until each and every one of her students were tucked in bed. "Nice one. He is the reason my godfather is dead." he said." said Harry. . "This piece of vermin is the reason both of my parent are dead.

" he said." James said with a sly grin. Harry?" asked the fat lady." said Harry. "Oh. But Harry noticed something. "How did you get that to label 'Prongs'?" he asked. "Just like your father in his times…" Harry and James chuckled. "I'm solemnly swear I'm up to no good. "Up to no good again Prongs?" Harry let out an admiring breath "What?" asked James." said James and there was an awakened silence."Follow McGonagall…you have the cloak and the map right?" Harry nodded "Let's go then!" Harry summoned the map and the invisibility cloak and they walked out of the common room. "Is that you. "And I didn't know Peter is a filthy traitor. the dot which was supposed to be labelled as "James Potter" was labeled as "Prongs" and on the top of the paper there was a message. "What's the password to Dumbledore's office?" asked ." James whispered. "Moony figured how to trick this spell a bit. "Didn't know professor Lupin had that in him.

Harry whispered the password and the gargoyle stepped aside. "Dumbledore lost his marbles. "it usually shows passwords. "So what should we do? Call the ministry or keep him here?" "I think maybe you should call Remus first." said James and Harry stifled a loud laugh. "I want the password to Dumbledore's office. as well." "It doesn't to Dumbledore's office though." Dumbledore said. Curly green words blossomed at the top of the page. "Very well." said James quietly to the map. only with password. 'Password?' it said. The title changed into the password 'Exploding Bon-Bons'. Ah. I'm sure he'd like a few words." James said.Harry. Harry and James stepped outside of Dumbledore's office and they heard Professor McGonagall's voice. what do we say to the boys?" . and Ms Isadora.

. They have never heard McGonagall crossing Dumbledore. a few minutes later when they heard Remus. Amy and McGonagall's voices. Peter is the cause of those deaths and we cannot know how Harry and James will react to him. Last time we kept information from the boy. "Out of his mind"." said Dumbledore." she said." He suggested. Albus.There was a pause. It stopped however." There was silence "I'll go fetch Remus and Amy. "I will not let them blow the steam on me again". Harry and James were shocked. There was a moment of silent and they heard the professor hissing. Albus? Harry Potter just gave me lecture why he shouldn't go to bed and his father has one of the worst tempers I've ever seen in my life. "Two days. After she left. Harry and James fell into silent laughter. "Be that as it may. They heard McGonagall's steps and they had to squash themselves to the wall so she won't bump into them. "Are you out of your MIND. "Maybe it's for the best if they won't know what's going on. I'm not going to let them blow the steam on me again. "How many days is it until full moon?" she asked suddenly. his godfather died. She was murmuring words like "Madness". let alone being hesitant in yelling at her students. or do you not remember that?" McGonagall all but yelled.

" but to his surprise Amy laughed quietly. Remus felt a kick in his shin. I can tell you that." said Remus and got another kick. "Ow!" he yelped quietly. we can handle it. Harry saw James's eyes widened in fear and then he heard Remus's voice taking in just above a whisper: "Prongs. "Is James here?" she asked. "Yes." ." said McGonagall. Harry. "Damn. "Go!" he said more fiercely and this time. "I've never seen such fury on such a young face for a long time. Prongs?" "Prongs?" said Amy. When Remus walked by them." Harry whispered back but Remus did not know whether Harry or James said it. He won't go. he suddenly stopped and sniffed. "No. Amy turned to see what this whole whispering behind her was." he whispered angrily. that hurt."But who found him?" asked Remus's voice. go to sleep please. "Let's go before McGonagall see what's holding us back. "What did you do that for." They walked up the stairs and James and Harry squashed themselves to the wall again. "Harry and James.

I don't care what they are going to do to the rat but I know I want to clear Sirius's name. even send a few Aurors here. Remus surprisingly obeyed. Prongs. I'll keep Mr Pettigrew in a ." said Remus in obvious annoyance. but then silenced again as voices began to talk loudly in Dumbledore's office. I forgot. It IS two days before the full moon. "Very well. "I don't know Dumbledore. may I suggest something?" asked Professor McGonagall "Maybe we should owl the ministry. "Headmaster. his senses are sharpening. I have little faith in the ministry at the moment. after Black's name will be cleared we'll let him go." There was a murmur of agreement. you are dismissed. "Damn. They closed the door to Dumbledore's office. I am not sure what they can do to Peter. to tell you the truth. What if they'll kill him before we can clear Sirius's name?" "I agree with Remus. tell them we have him." James said seriously.she said and winked to the general direction of James and Harry. "You'll hear from me again." There was a pause.

they fell asleep. A memory. She had another one of these dream. not bothering to check the map. There.". . but after the memories flooded her. In the morning. Lily woke up extremely early. she sighed. she said and giggled as James gave her a wave. Not even bothering to toss their glasses aside." said Harry breathily to the fat lady. After a quick shower.very safe box I have. don't do this again. who she figured later. belonged to Hermione. "Holly Hippogriffs. They climbed through the portrait hole and collapsed on the couches." Dumbledore said everybody tuned to the door and James and Harry ran to Gryffindor tower. When Lily woke up she was very surprised to find herself sleeping on the sofa in the common room. only half a minute later. "It is very late Mr Potter. Quite a few people were already standing there. Only this time she watched a memory of Sirius and Remus explaining the story of the marauders in the Shrieking Shake. watching and making guesses about who is who. she went down the stairs to find to her surprise two extremely alike faces of James and Harry Potter sleeping soundly on the sofa she just slept in.

She couldn't quite make the words." Harry gave her a strange look before looking at his watch. it stopped. A redhead boy was walking in the corridors from the great hall. I wonder what happened to . She has just seen a premonition. the woman continued to speak and the boy went pale. "It's almost time for breakfast. Lily jumped away from the boy. startled. "Is there something wrong?". "Everything's just fine.The people in the common room watched her as she came to one of the teenagers and brushed his hair away from his forehead. "No. the boy turned. asked the boy whom she was standing next to. Suddenly. She raised her head and saw it was Harry. Just as it began." she croaked. a figure behind him talked. she was sure of that because the boy she touched wasn't the boy in her dream. The figure's head was rolling on her chest before she jumped and talked to the boy casually.

he looked up and saw all the people looking at him.Wormtail. . he whispered to Lily.". pretending to yawn and stretch. he's Prongs. and that was by accident. "Did I do something?". "So we're famous huh?" "Who are the others?" asked the sixth year. "How do you know about them?" "Are you kidding?" said a third year." Many gasps were heard "Someone talking about me?" asked James. "Are you really Prongs?" asked a first year in undisguised awe. They are the pride of the house. "As in Wormtail from the infamous marauders?" "Yep. "Anyway. "They are famous for their pranks. All of the people in first year hear about them. "Did you just say Wormtail?" asked one of the boys that Harry recognised as a sixth year. "Yeah. I'm sure James will be glad to hear it." James said." said Harry dryly." "I didn't get any information about them until my third year. who obviously heard the entire conversation." he said.

All of the fifth years up were gasping. everybody started to talk. Remus entered the common room. Harry shrugged at him and James grinned. like a blast. but at this moment. many of the students conjured parchment and quill and asked him to sign on them. I can tell you that Moony is Professor Lupin. "Are you really Moony?" "Who are the other Marauders?" "Why did you keep this from us?" By now."." Harry said. He looked up into the amused face of Harry and the delighted face of James." he said. after the truth will be out. Maybe it's fate. Then. "Well. Remus was red with embarrassment and did not know where did this come from. enough of this. the . James.Harry silenced James who was just about to answer. He looked into the faces of his gasping students. "Right. "We will tell you one. the other two we will tell you in a few weeks. he said smiling. Many confused faces met him. "Harry.

Both of you." said Dumbledore as they sat down a few minutes later." murmured James. . you stink. "Exploding Bon-Bons. just in time I see. sir?" asked Harry. "Sorry sir. "Should I say the password or do you already know it?" James gave him an innocent look while Harry said. James and Harry went up the stairs and came back fifteen minutes later to see that the crowd grew and Lily was gone." said Dumbledore. "Ah. "What happened to Pettigrew. Harry noticed she was talking to Hermione. "Please go take some shower Prongs. After Remus shook Harry from his sweet dreamland. but I know that you already know the answer to that. Mr Potter. Mr Potter." Harry and James immediately got up." and the gargoyle jumped open." Remus smiled at the scowling face of James. "A very interesting question. smiling. glancing at the stammering Remus and giggling. he took both Harry and James to the headmaster's office. Both Harry and James went scarlet.headmaster wants to talk to the both of you.

let's get down to business. Mr Potter. Lily He killed Lily My Lily "I'll go first." joked James." This statement made James look down. Everybody laughed. Mr Potter. His wand was taken and he is bounded so he cannot attack. who helped him at need. now. after all." said Harry."Curiosity is not a crime. curiosity did kill the cat. the conversation continued and Harry now stepped into a secret room underneath Dumbledore's desk. He is now in a special room inside my office." said Dumbledore wisely. I am sure that both of you has some things to say to Mr Pettigrew. is the same man who was responsible to the death of himself and Lily. He could not believe that one of his best friends. "But it wasn't the cat's fault that he ran into a gang of bullycats. he was just passing by. "Nicely said. but be aware of the things curiosity can lead to. who helped Remus with his transformations. Harry slid for a few seconds on a long and very wide tunnel . Apparently.

BECAUSE OF YOU I AM AN ORPHAN! BECAUSE OF YOUR DAMN FAT ASS. You did it on your own free will." Harry said coldly his eyes shooting daggers at Pettigrew. An innocent man ran away from prison because of you. s-she underst-tood who I am…she would've turned me down to the Ministry. "Sirius would've killed me." Harry said." he said in his squeaky voice. Peter Pettigrew sat bounded to a chair by golden chains. just as Sirius did four years ago "You should've died like the people who died because of you! Because of you. I have no parents. I had to do it. in the middle of the room." he squeaked. "Harry. I HAVE NO ONE! NO ONE!" . And there.until he reached a circular room. very much like Harry saw in one of the trials in Dumbledore's Pensieve in his fourth year. The Dark Lord would've killed me-" "Voldemort did not make you bring Bertha Jorkins to him. "Wormtail. "Harry. AN INNOCENT MAN WAS ON A RUN FROM THE MINISTRY BECAUSE OF YOU!" Harry yelled. "So you should've died!" Harry roared." he stuttered. "So you should've let her! An innocent man was sitting in Azkaban twelve years because of you. "B-But H-Harry.

"My whole life was ruined because of you. "Well. and for what? For a pathetic excuse of a human being?" Pettigrew whimpered and Harry drew courage from it. Maybe emotional but he deserves it. with the Animagi. I think I made my point clear. "How did it go?" asked Remus. "Did he realise we heard all he said from here?" asked Remus . "And you know what. with the order." He said and came out of the office. you made a mistake that will cost for a lot of goddamn lives!" "It's all your fault. You helped Voldemort back. my life!" he said. you know what Pettigrew? YOU are a pathetic excuse for a human being!" Harry said and took off. "Very well. You turned them all down. running up the tunnel and came out of Dumbledore's office. And you didn't even have a damn good reason to do it! Not one! Everybody trusted you! With Remus's transformation." he whispered.Harry bellowed. seething. "And you turned them all down. Pettigrew? A lot of lives will be ruined because of you. with their life. but I don't think other people who will show him how much suffer he caused will do any harm.

do you want to come down there now?" James nodded and went underneath Dumbledore's desk.

.

hearing every word and utterly speechless for the opportunity James was giving Peter. James was silent." said Dumbledore with a smile. She looked up as Dumbledore and Remus were looking into something looked like television screen on the wall. "You killed me. all of the pain and the hurt of the last week came crushing down on him. he continued. obviously looking for Harry and James. obviously waiting for James to stop him but he didn't.*Chapter 11*: Chapter 11: The Halloween Ball The Halloween Ball Peter looked up and his eyes widened. Although he wanted to curse Pettigrew into oblivation. Lily came into the office. . he looked into one of his best friends eyes and whispered. You killed me." he whispered. "How could you do this Peter?" barely audible. "Nobility. what do you have to say for yourself?" Dumbledore and Remus were up. "James. "James. James looked at him. you have to understand-" Peter said.

" said James "You killed me." Peter said in defeat. Well done Peter. but I still know what pain is." he repeated. that Death Eaters killed your father! Did you remember that when you took the mark? Did you remember your father?" . "Damn right there isn't. what the hell do you understand!" Peter said icily. do you know how many innocent lives will be killed just because you are a Death Eater?" "I don't know what the hell made you become a Death Eater. Your best friend. James swallowed the lump in his throat with difficulty. you don't know what the hell happened to all of us. "I am seventeen Peter. There is nothing you can say or do to make up for it. "You weren't there James. Damn you Peter you killed Lily" James was choked up by now. but obviously your friends weren't enough for you. "I heard you helped Voldemort back into power."James. You killed Lily. You are only seventeen. "There is nothing I can say for myself now. Peter would've been dust now." James said angrily. Or can't you remember that Death Eaters killed my dad in fifth year!" "Don't you remember Peter. If looks could burn." Peter looked down. "You killed Lily.

And I'm not ashamed of being a Death Eater. you didn't even notice when I wasn't at Harry's first birthday. "Never insult them again. Lily is a thousand times more smart. Blood was all over his nose and . just like everybody else loved you Peter. You had our respect and trust and you betrayed us!" "Who loved me Potter?" Pettigrew started shouting. "Did girls love me? No! They were too busy worshipping your ass." "Harry Potter is a stupid little brat who-" Peter started but got another fist in his face. James was fuming. Did my mother love me? No! She was too busy worshipping my dead father's ass. When Harry was born you were too busy worshipping and showing off in your silly wife and stupid child. "Your father loved you. brave and nice than you and Harry is the bravest person anyone can imagine and I'm proud I'm his father in the future." spat Peter with contempt. do you hear me? You don't even worth the dirt on their shoelaces."My father was a fool. Did you guys love me? No! You were too busy teasing me!" James was shocked at Peter's outburst "Nobody loved me." said Peter. He strode forward towards Peter and punched him with all his might. The Dark Lord offered me a shelter from you and I took it.

He roughly kneed him in his groin area. ignoring Remus's calls and returned to the common room. James turned to Peter again. so did Amy. the bustard just kept answering us back. she slapped Peter with all the strength she could master. and went up the hole to meet the astounded faces of Lily and Remus. "Of course. "I blew the steam on him yesterday. Dumbledore nodded stiffly. . James backed off Peter and turned to Dumbledore "Can I do one more thing before I go?" he asked him. He quickly went out of the office. Peter screamed with pain and James whispered."' Lily nodded.clothes." said Dumbledore and watched how Lily slid down the tunnel." said Albus Dumbledore's calm voice from near the entrance hole. "You are nothing but a cowered Pettigrew". "I think that is enough James. She didn't spare time for words. "How could you?" she said in a deadly whisper. "Can I go down there professor?" she asked Dumbledore who arrived just as James shut the door. Remus sighed.

" she spat." he said in the same icy voice he used with James. "Don't you call me Lily. Just like the two others before her. breakfast was over by now and Lily was late for Charms. She heard Remus's thought though: Is this some kind on effect he had on people? To make them so mad they can't say a word afterwards. She whipped her wand out and shouted "Densaugeo". . A stupid Mudblood with no talent whatsoever."James was nothing but nice to you and you betrayed us. you were an idiot at sixteen and you are a downright prat at 37!" she said and stalked off. Peter's teeth began to grow as Lily spat on his face "You were a jerk at eleven. she left Dumbledore's office in a hurry without another word. you have no right." he said with venom. "Fine Potter-" he said. She smiled but the smile quickly faded. "I'm not a Potter either." "You don't know a thing Lily. it doesn't change the fact that you are nothing but a bitch that was knocked up by my best friend. "Would you shut up? Whatever your name is." she said.

Hermione stopped walking. "Good evening students." she said. . you are late again. "What?" she repeated more quietly." squeaked professor Flitwick. He is in professor Dumbledore's office. causing a few students to look at their crazy Head Girl. The day passed rapidly and it was already dinner. "Harry caught Wormtail last night. Professor Dumbledore stood. didn't Ron tell you? He and James caught him last night." he started "this year. "Now."Ms Evans." Hermione's shocked face was actually quite amusing. "I am sorry professor but I was at Dumbledore's office. "Yes. our wonderful Head Boy and Girl-" his eyes twinkled towards Ron and Hermione. where were you at breakfast?" asked Hermione as the lesson was over. Lily whispered 'Later' before the professor continued the class. both blushing to the roots of their hairs. "WHAT!" she yelled." she said and sat down near Hermione who shot her a questioning look.

a pretty brunet came and tapped James on the shoulder." she said. "You will all dress like muggles do on special occasions – the shops in Hogsmede got a note and the refilled their collection and of course."-decided a Halloween Ball will be in order. The ball will have a theme-" Some of the people groaned although a big part of the female population seemed quite comfortable with that. shooting Ron a dirty look. She meant to talk to professor Dumbledore about Pettigrew. "Don't call me that." said Ron. the music at the ball will be muggle music. Hermione scowled." After the feast. Hermione couldn't hold her anxiousness and anticipation." the hall burst into cheers "The ball will be for forth year and up although you may invite a younger student if you like. I'm going to talk to Dumbledore after the feast to get some news. Suddenly. "It just that blasted Pettigrew. . She barely touched the food." she snapped and then sighed. a thing that didn't go unnoticed by her new boyfriend. "You okay Herms?" asked Ron. "Oh.

"Hi. the hall began to talk again and many excited murmurs ran through the hall." . Suddenly. James shot a fleeting look at Lily. "What?" he asked innocently. a seventh year Gryffindor. What did I do to have the honour of visiting me?" he asked charmingly. like a fire. They all wore the same disgusted expression on their faces.James turned and smiled "Yes?" he asked the brunet. "Hi. Donna batted her eyelashes. Meet me outside your common room in eight?" she nodded and walked swaying her hips. "That means Evans is available." she said smiling brightly. "I was just wondering if you can escort me to the upcoming ball?" she asked batting their eyelashes again. Harry was watching from the side disgusted by the mutual flirting. "Well of course. Lily scowled. The hall was quiet." Replied James "I'm James Potter. He turned to look at the entire Gryffindor table. James followed her with his eyes. my name is Donna O'Connell I'm a seventh year Ravenclaw." "Wonder if she'd say yes.

Dumbledore's eyes twinkled merrily "Yes. two months at least. ." he said without thinking and then. Dumbledore sighed. he clasped his hand to his mouth. "Hello professor. "You better change this expression or it may get stuck like that forever. "That was the most disgusting thing I ever had the misfortune to see. he couldn't pretend he didn't see it coming. He got up and walked out of the hall wearing a deep disgusted expression on his face. your father and mother were very desirable at their time at Hogwarts. but it may take a while. Someone who turned to be the smiling face of Albus Dumbledore." he said. as if realising what he said and to whom. "I believe that you didn't take well the little display in the great hall?" said Dumbledore in amusement. when are they going back?" asked Harry suddenly. "Professor." said Harry." he said and Harry nodded. and that include Ron and Hermione's snogging. "I am close to a solution.Harry had the sudden urge to puck." said someone behind him.

Because of being a teenager. Dumbledore's eyes twinkled. He admired her wisdom and state of mind."Will you…erase their memory?" Harry asked carefully. perhaps a little late from the other boys. Harry seemed to spend a lot of time thinking about Ginny Weasley. it didn't happen." said Dumbledore." Harry blushed and muttered 'yes. "The history had already changed when they came. Harry's hormones were kicking in. "W-W-What? B-B-But that'll change history!" he said. He loved everything about her: her lovely red hair." he smiled "Well. "No. sir' before running his way to Gryffindor tower." he said and Harry's eyes widened. meaning. From the middle of his sixth year. but since when was Harry a normal boy? . hopeful. professor Isadora and Mr Lupin do not recall this kind of event in the past. I'm sure you have someone to invite to the ball. her beautiful chocolate eyes and her well-curved body. "How do you know?" Harry asked "Excellent question Harry. off you go Harry.

Harry knew. "Doyouwanttogototheballwithme?" Harry mumbled to his feet. Harry looked around the common room and his gaze lingered on Ginny. Harry became a little angry. "Ah… Ginny?" he said. of course that his chances with Ginny were slim to none because he knew that if Ron knew about this. She looked up from the book she was reading "Yeah?" she smiled. Ginny was torn between amusement and excitement. Then.Harry noticed during the summer that his muscles seemed to grow. Too bad Ron wouldn't have anyone date her. And with little apprehension. . Ginny is her own person he thought she doesn't need Ron to make her decisions. so he helped them by running around the neighbourhood and using Dudley's punching bag early in the morning. She really did become a lovely young woman. Harry would be blasted into pieces on the spot. he walked towards her.

" he said. Harry blushed from embarrassment." said James Harry blushed even further and Ginny almost cracked with amusement. Harry Potter asking her to the ball? "Uh…of course Harry. "But…I must warn you before hand. looking at his shoes." he said."Sorry?" she asked a little breathlessly. "I don't know how to dance. "You mean it? You will?" he asked hopeful. Harry looked up. "Nonsense Harry! This is a family tradition!" he said. . "You really don't ha-" Harry started. Harry looked up. Harry took a deep breath "Do you…do you want to go to the ball with me?" he asked. I mean it. "Yes. Harry sighed with relief. "I'll give you lessons Harry. Ginny's heart was pounding very hard in her chest indeed. "What's that?" asked a voice behind him "A Potter who doesn't know how to dance? Shame on you Harry!" said James with a smirk." she said and smiled brightly." she said.

"N-No" Harry mumbled. eyebrows furred. . "And it's not his fault at all that he lived at his muggle relatives. "There is a family vault?" Harry asked. clearly embarrassed. meet me in the Room of Requirement at 7 tonight okay?" James asked Harry. "You know nothing about your own family?" "Give him a rest will you?" snapped Ginny suddenly."It is?" he asked. clearly surprised. "Do you have the key to the family vault then?" James asked. James rolled his eyes. "Harry. "B-But H-He…he knows nothing! About anything!" Harry had a strong reminder of Hagrid before his first year. The whole common room was listening to their conversation by now. "Of course it is! Don't you know anything about our family?" James asked suspiciously. James was even more surprised than Harry was "Do you know where Godric's Hollow is?" he asked." Ginny said. "No" said Harry.

"How dare you? She's just a little girl!" Ron yelled. "Harry. The common room silenced again." said Harry "Is that a problem?" Ron glowered at him. "She's my little sister…" he started. still a bit angry with James for embarrassing Harry in front of the whole common room. did you just ask my sister to the ball?" asked Ron angrily. Moment of truth. "She is NOT a little girl anymore Ron. looking . temper rising." Harry said gratefully. his cheeks flushed. "No problem." she said smiling. "And she's also a person to herself who doesn't need you to protect her from boys. ears turning red. But he knew his patient mood wouldn't last for long. "Yeah. She is sixteen!" Harry said. She walked to her dormitory and Harry took a deep breath after seeing that Ron in approaching." said Harry calmly. "What's all that noise?" asked Ginny from the stairs.Harry nodded and James walked away muttering something about 'all redheads girls are insane' "Thanks Gin.

I'm going with Harry and nothing you can say or do will change that!" she yelled and stormed off. clearly hurt. . "Nothing Ginny." said Harry and walked towards the portrait of the Fat Lady.down at Harry and Ron. Harry couldn't believe what he was hearing. Ron grabbed his arm. And apparently neither did the other students as they were gasping in shock. You are not my guardian angel Ronald! I'm not a little girl anymore!" she was practically screaming right now. we are not finished!" said Ron angrily. followed by Hermione who shot a glare at Ron. "B-But Ginny…" trailed Ron." said Ron. "Excuse me?" asked Ginny in incredulity and glared at Ron. "He jumped out of the window the moment you started looking at my sister. "That's the end of it Ron. neither was Ginny. "Am I Potter now Ron? What happened to dear old Harry?" asked Harry. "Hold it Potter. "I will go to the ball with whomever I want Ron. no matter what you think.

but very silently. his hands covering his face. "Nothing. rubbing his face with his hands. you'll have me to answer to. Everybody was watching him.Ron sighed. She spotted Harry sitting on a sofa. he was unusually quiet although many students were there. and opened his mouth. There was silence in which Harry's eyes were still glued to where Ron was a moment ago. "Harry. not wanting to make his angry. there isn't much to see right now. Lily entered the common room." he said with a sigh. "Don't you lie to me Harry James Potter!" she said sharply in a tone that reminded Harry Mrs Weasley. . He saw everybody watching him. He took several deep breaths and opened his eyes again. "If you'll hurt her Potter. what's wrong?" she asked worriedly. He slowly and silently slid into one of the closest sofas and closed his eyes. He smiled a little about the resemblance." he said quietly and everybody returned to what they were doing." he said and walked angrily out of the common room. "Well.

So did a few other students that were in the hall. "No. Ron jumped a little. "Ah. she located Ron in the great hall. with Ron. I wonder if being a Potter it means that you are automatically attracted to redheads."You really look like Ginny you know. Lily also turned red. "Can somebody explain?" she asked the crowded common room. She stormed off to the Great Hall. Even McGonagall heard her from her office. but also because the common room was watching again. "RONALD WEASLEY!" she screamed when she arrived." Lily looked angry "Accio Marauders Map" she yelled and the map came zooming to her." said Lavender "He called Harry 'Potter' and threatened him." he said and walked out. After Harry asked Ginny to the ball." Harry blurted and turned red. But never mind. I'm going upstairs. "Why are you being a prat to your Harry? He has EVERY . "Weasley was being an idiot. being followed by half of the Gryffindor tower. Ron lost control over himself. is there a problem with Ginny?" she asked kindly. After she activated her.

" he said in a small voice. . Remus and Amy flinched with every word. And her Howlers. "I thought I would never hear her lashing her temper on a boy after she married James." said Remus quietly. because she walked briskly out of the hall. "Sorry Lils. Lily heard and it seemed to be a satisfactory answer for her. a few teaches (Remus and Amy among them) and many students were watching. because Lily turned her head to him. Her face nearly as red as her hair and you could almost see the steam coming off her ears. Obviously not quiet enough.RIGHT to ask Ginny to the ball! You can't protect her from life Ronald! If Harry wants to go with your sister to the ball and she wants it too SO BE IT!" By now. trying to hide behind Amy. "You are not her MOTHER you are not her FATHER and you are not her BLOODY BOYFRIEND so GIVE IT UP!" Ron flinched and had a painful reminder of his own mother. How can she always make me feel guilty? He thought. "IS THAT SO REMUS?" Remus flinched and muttered a small 'crap' so only Amy heard.

He saw a door was already there so he came in and closed the door. I mean. I'm sorry mate. "Harry?" he called as he closed the door behind him. "Yeah?" said Harry disbelievingly. I definitely didn't miss THAT." Harry said and scratched his nose. Harry nodded. "Wanna play chess?" he asked. face as red as his hair. Harry walked to the Room of Requirements wondering what James wanted. I understand. "Look. it's just that…she's my little sister and…" "That's okay mate. actually quite amazed he was so forgiving."Well. better him from Malfoy… Ron nodded to himself and walked to his dormitory in silence. Ron nodded and smiled. Maybe it's not such a bad think Harry is dating Ginny. Ron sat there. I shouldn't have acted like that. He took three calming breaths and relaxed." said Amy quietly. Harry saw a ballroom with James waiting for him and blushed to the roots of his hair. . At 7 o'clock.

Fathers teaching their sons and mothers teaching their daughters in the age of seven how to dance. "Let's do this thing. . James smirked. Ron laughed." said Harry and Ron immediately shut up. James taught Harry how to dance. Harry felt a lot more comfortable with James now and was glad for it." he said jovially." said James with a smirk. "Hi Harry. For the next two hours. Harry had a major progress but still needed to perfect his moves."Uh…James you don't have to do this. Harry turned scarlet. it's a tradition in the Potter family. where were you?" asked Ron when he and James entered the dormitory. They scheduled to do this again the next day." he said very embarrassed. "Uh…" "I am giving him dancing lessons. "I know I don't but since you didn't learn that in the age of seven you'll have to learn it in the age of seventeen. Harry relaxed and nodded I can do this. "Shut up Ron." James said with an amused smile. you couldn't use some too.

She wore a very similar dress to Lily's except her low ." Ron turned red but nodded. Ginny came downstairs and Harry had to take a very deep breath to relax himself. During the next week. Harry and Ron were waiting for the girls. By the end of the week. they thanked James about twenty times. Lily came down. She wore a green shade of makeup. Hermione came downstairs. the girls were hectic. she had white dress that also hung above her knees and two white thin straps. they went to Hogsmede two days earlier and bought the necessary dresses. and Harry had a strong reminder of the picture of his parents' wedding. Harry and Ron had dancing lessons and they were almost experts. He turned his head and butterflies stated fluttering in full force in his stomach. James walked a few minutes earlier to pick Donna. On the day of the ball. The pureblood girls had a little difficulty to adjust to simple dresses but they managed. It had one wide sleeveless strap and her makeup was in light blue shade. She was wearing a black dress that hung just above her knees."You can come too if you want." said James "Tomorrow at seven in the Room of Requirements.

"Shall we?" he said and saw Ron doing the same thing. Harry swallowed "Ginny. It was in a light green shade. "Smith?" said Harry disbelievingly when Lily stood next to Zacharias Smith and accepted his arm." they left the common room to meet Lily's date. "Don't call me that. "You look good Herms. Ron and Hermione shot a pitying look at Harry but continued to walk. you look amazing." she said but than smiled." said Harry to Hermione and she glared at him. Harry rolled his eyes and Lily shot a look full of hate towards her.who wore a bubble pink dress. you look quite handsome yourself. James watched the exchange with a . "Yeah.neckline was even lower." said Lily and glared at Harry warning him to say something else. They entered the hall and saw James and Donna ." she said and he offered her his arm. "Thank you." he croaked she giggled in embarrassment. like her make up. "Thank you Harry. Donna smirked at Lily.

"Welcome students. to the Halloween ball . it made the environment much more welcoming. Ginny smiled and nodded and they started to dance.lifted eyebrow. "Hi Harry. Hermione. Ron. The students ate and talked. The headmaster stood on the stage. didn't like him almost instantly. Ginny. "Now that we are all fed and watered. He met Zacharias in the DA meetings and like the rest of the Gryffindors. Zacharias. Harry notices none of the Slytherins was there and his mood lifted. please welcome 'The Weird Sisters'!" the crowd burst in applause as the band started a waltz song and Lily and James had a confused looks on their faces. Lily.the muggle style. . Huh? He shook himself." James said. The evening was a success and none of the students were bothered that none of the Slytherins were there. They found themselves a table and sat. "Have fun and tuck in!" he said with a smile." said Dumbledore and a few laughs sounded from the students. "Would you like to dance?" asked Harry. Other couples stepped into the dance floor.

you are not so bad at dancing at all. I think they are making up. Lily's heart began to pound as a slow song began to play." "Uh…yeah. "Do you really mean that?" say yes. "May I cut in?" asked James's voice. Lily looked in the depths of James's chocolate eyes. Someone tapped on Zacharias's shoulder." said Lily "What I said was from the heat of the moment and I didn't mean it at all. ." said Ginny and Harry looked left to look at them. "They are. James has been giving me and Ron lessons for the past week. Zacharias stepped aside with a glare and James put his hands on Lily's waist as she put his hands on his broad shoulders. Lily tried not to winch as Zacharias stepped on her toes again." James looked at Lily's eyes." he said with a charming smile towards Ginny." "Hey Harry. "Yes I do James. the eyes he loved more than anything. look at Lily and James.After a few minutes Ginny spoke: "You know. say you do." Harry said. "James…I'm sorry. face red Ginny laughed and Harry found his butterflies fluttering yet again.

"Why do I feel like everybody is watching us?" asked Lily. it's not just you. James laughed lightly." said Ron. "You dance better. "Great Merlin. do I see double?" asked Amy who was currently dancing with Remus. "I missed this." Lily breathed. "They do look like us. "Nope. Ginny smiled in triumph at her. "Is it just me or James and Lily look exactly like Harry and Ginny?" asked Hermione and Ron laughed quietly." he admitted ant Amy nodded. "Indeed."Remus. maybe because it's been a long time since they saw it?" said James "Or maybe because we look like a replica of Harry and Ginny?"

"Yeah. if I remember correctly you had a crush on Lily." said Snape "And how did you know about that?" . "Shut up Lupin."Right. "If I asked for gossip about Potter's love life I would've asked for it." said Remus and took a sip "It was so long ago.

I just can't sleep. They went down the stairs and saw Lily sitting on one of the sofas." she mumbled. "Yeah. looking at the fire. Something clicked in Harry's head.

Harry.*Chapter 12*: Chapter 12: Truth or Dare Chapter 12 – Truth or Dare James and Lily were on good terms but they avoided any kind of physical contact whatsoever. Dean scowled while Lavender gave an excited squeal. Hermione winked Ron. "I don't want to. "What's that?" asked James. "How about we play truth or dare?" she suggested. This tension between them was obvious to everyone. "You can do homework. Hermione. Lavender. Ginny." said Hermione." said Hermione bossily. James and Lily were in the common room one evening. "Yeah let's play truth or dare!" she said happily. . Seamus. "how about we all play something?" The group looked interested "You know. putting her book aside.

She squealed. squealing is stupid. truth or dare?" asked Hermione. you have to do something the others give you. Harry. "Never mind!" said Lily quickly "Let's play! James conjure a bottle please" James looked at her oddly and conjured a bottle with a wave of his wand." said Hermione. (again) "Lavender. If you say truth you have to answer a question and if you say dare. "Uh…well…" Harry started lamely. ."It's a muggle game where you spin a bottle and if the cork side of the bottle points on you people ask you 'truth or dare?'. "Um…truth" Lavender said with a bright smile. "But what if we refuse to answer the question or do the dare?" "You have to take off a piece of clothing. I'll kill Petunia and her oaf of a son. Lily spun the bottle and it pointed on Lavender. shooting an annoyed look to Lavender." said Lily and immediately regretted her question as she saw the reason in his mind. didn't you grow up with muggles? You are supposed to know this game.

"Kiss Harry. and the closet won't reopen until you completed the task" James smiled embarrassedly and stepped into the closet. "Well?" said Ron."Do you like Seamus?" Seamus turned red and Lavender nodded. Hermione and Ron exchanged satisfied smirks." Ron turned red in anger but Hermione cocked an eyebrow and kissed Harry on the cheek. "Hermione. truth or dare?" "Dare" she said without hesitation." said Hermione with a smile as Lavender scowled at her and Hermione span the bottle. It stopped in front of James. . James and Lily sighed and went to the closest closet. "Snog Lily in a closet for 5 minutes. "You never said where. "James truth or dare?" "Dare" said James immediately.

He leaned forward but stopped inches from her lips." The teens laughed and continued the game." said Lavender hesitatingly. "Dare." he said and pinned Lily to the closets back. he slid his arms around her waist while she put her arms around his neck."Well. "It's been over ten minutes." both Ginny and Harry blushed. "No way!" protested Ron "She's my little sister!" "RONALD WEASLEY!" yelled Ginny "I AM NOT A LITTLE GIRL ANYMORE!" Ron cowered back into his place. It should have happened a long time ago." Harry said. "Harry. "Oh no." said Hermione with a glint in her eyes "Let them come out whenever they want. maybe someone should check on them. "Well Harry?" said Parvati slyly. Harry and Ginny stood and . James closed the gap between them with a soft kiss. After a few seconds he deepened the kiss making Lily make a strange sound from her throat. Slowly. sometimes Ginny could be really scary. "Kiss Ginny. truth or dare?" asked Parvati. better get this over with.

The grouped turned to see James who smiled evilly and Lily. "Well…" said Harry "If you had the opportunity to snog someone here. "Dean. truth or dare?" Parvati clapped her hands excitedly. "Tomorrow at breakfast go and tell Snape in front of the whole great hall that he is the best teacher at the school. whose hair was messy and her cloths were a little wrinkled but her eyes glinted happily." pouted Lavender. Harry turned the bottle "Parvati. "Truth." said James. "WHAT?" yelled Ron while the others were laughing and clutching their stomachs "NO BLOODY WAY IN THE WORLD!" ." said Hermione evilly.Harry gave her a small peck on the mouth." a collective groan was heard from the group." said Ron." both Dean and Parvati turned red by now "Ron truth or-" "Dare. "You are no fun. who would that be?" Parvati blushed and mumbled something "Can't hear you dear. making Hermione roll her eyes.

" "Go with a miniskirt tomorrow. I accept the dare." Harry smirked. "Shut up Ron. . This time. "Harry truth or dare?" "I already did once!" "I don't care. Quidditch did him good. Truth or dare Harry?" Harry wrinkled his nose in annoyance. The girls stopped laughing and took a good look at his muscular chest. truth or dare?" "Dare."Fine than. but took his shirt off. "POTTER YOU PERVERT!" yelled Ron." "Who do you like?" "No bloody way in the world I'll tell you!" "Take off your shirt than. "What?" he asked. some of the girls took a deep intake." said Ginny devilishly. Real good. "Truth. Harry sighed and pulled his shirt off. you must take off a bit of clothing. Ron blushed." said Lily and smiled." said James." he said "Ginny. "Right.

Everybody was quiet except of James who was rolling on the floor laughing. I am very disappointed. "What is so bloody funny?" asked Ron." "But Minnie!" yelped James "It's a lot!" professor McGonagall's lips looked like a very thin line indeed and her face was flushed in anger and embarrassment. "What in the devil is going on in here? Mr Potter. though Harry's sounded rather fake. Mr Weasley. much to the girls' disappointment. "She said me and Sirius have to serve detention and Sirius is not even here! She is so used to give us detentions together that she forgot!" Everybody erupted in a loud laugh." she yelled and stomped out of the common room. Harry and Ron blushed and pulled their shirts back on. why are you shirtless in the middle of the common room?" Professor McGonagall entered to the common room. . "Thirty points from Gryffindor.Harry's smirk grew even larger. and probably always would be. Sirius was a touchy subject for him. "I asked you thousands of times not to call me that Mr Potter! Show some respect! You and Mr Black will have detention at my office tomorrow at seven.

Hermione was sitting on Ron's lap." he said in a hoarse whisper. do you want to play Truth or Dare on our own?" she asked slyly. Harry."We better go to sleep! It's midnight already. James. "Stop calling me Herms!" she continued sternly and walked to her dormitory quickly before breaking down laughing. aware she was driving Ron mad." said Lily and the group nodded in agreement. James winked to Lily who blushed before going up to her dormitory. you were putting a nice act too. "I dare you to…" she said in near whisper in his ear. stoking his arm." she said. Hermione was sitting with Lily. Hermione giggled. "Why not?" he shrugged. "Dare. "Well. Ron and James seemed to have an eating competition. much to Harry's enjoyment) in the great hall. "You were brilliant Ron. "Truth or dare?" she asked seductively Ron's body began to heat. Ron seemed the ." "Hey. deciding that they need to discuss the success of their plan. Ron.

Ron said. looking at his drenched cloths. the owls flew in.winner since James was no match for his pig-like eating habits. wishing that Lily would hear her. she glowed. Lily did.as she read it. just like every morning. "Nothing!" she said in a high-pitched voice and took a glance at Harry. "What's wrong Hermione?" asked James worriedly. Instead of the exaggerated response. Lily! Are you mad! You know what Harry's response to this subject is! Don't you dare bring that up! Hermione thought. read the headline. Hermione got the Daily Prophet and opened it. Suddenly." she said loudly. She sprayed the pumpkin juice she was drinking all over Ron –who was in the middle of his tenth pie.

"It seems that he is an illegal Animagus in the form of a rat. wasn't any of that.Hermione's glare. He also admitted killing the muggles and helping you-know-who return to his body after hiding in his Animagus form for twelve years. Peter Pettigrew. SIRIUS BLACK IS INNOCENT In a surprising press conference yesterday." The announcement overwhelmed the Wizarding world. Sirius Black was accused of cooperating with dark forces (You-Know-Who) and was accused of being a Death Eater after murdering 12 muggles and his good friend and schoolmate. James and Ginny were grinning at each other. He admitted he was James and Lily Potter's secret keeper and sold the information on their location to He-Who-Must-Not-BeNamed. the temporary minister of magic. his face was blank and the fork with mashed potatoes he was going to eat froze in midair.

He thought desperately.rumoured that Pettigrew arrived to the ministry batted and in a bad shape. "So…" a bone-chilling voice was sound from Harry's throat." he . "Get out of my head!" he screamed.

They glinted red. but couldn't stop the waves of heat that radiated from his body." Harry's eyes flickered green again. well done. by Rita Skeeter. "You captured Wormtail and cleared your dead godfather's name. The hall was quiet. Harry's eyes flickered red again. Many gasps were now heard from the crowd and the teachers. Harry opened his eyes and Hermione gasped silently. Don't rise.' These Rumours have not yet been confirmed. Harry's eyes weren't emerald green as usual." James paled Lily began to shake. Harry laughed cruelly "I have an offer first. thanks to Mr Harry Potter. He needed to relax.

"Enough of that Ms Weasley.paused dramatically. Potter. "Harry!" she said. with a deathly white face. your precious redhead will live and so will her family and your Mudblood. A few seconds later." Pomfrey looked lost and scared. in a stern voice. James. "Join me and live. she didn't know what to do. "Mobilicarpus!" she muttered and Harry floated in front of her to the infirmary." he roared. Ginny dove to where Harry was lying and began crying. Hermione. "Well than." said professor McGonagall. prepare to die. And prepare your little friends too." Harry's eyes were green again "NEVER." she screamed.

"He'll have a rough night. She let him swallow the potion and put a sleeping charm on him. "Dreamless sleep potion with a Mind Relaxing potion. "What did you give him Poppy?" McGonagall asked." she said sadly. glancing at her patient. Madam Pomfrey returned and kicked them out of the infirmary with excuse of "he-won't-wakeanyway". leaving the teenagers around Harry's bed. "How did this happen?" James and Lily shrugged but Ron and Hermione shared a concerned glance. "How is he?" said fearfully a second year. "He is asleep at the moment." said James as the others didn't answer. The chatter stopped as they entered the common room. They knew that . A few minutes later. She measured carefully the amount of potion she put in and opened Harry's mouth." she said and went out of the infirmary followed closely by McGonagall. staring at him in a mixture of fear and awe.

He has only one weakness. very strong indeed.Harry and Voldemort shared a connection but it never reached this kind of things. Oh. Needless to say. yes. Look at the person to . makes him a better human than Voldemort." he said to the quiet crowd "Most of you did not witness or suffer from the hands of Voldemort. The love Mr Potter showed today to the ones he loves and cherish. "This morning we witnessed Voldemort's true colours. He will threaten the people you love the most. Each one of you is better than Voldemort. The other students looked at them expectedly. when Dumbledore stood up at dinner to make an announcement. The day passed very quickly for the students in Hogwarts. He will tear apart families and turn your allies into enemies.love. the students were looking quite grim. Each and every one of them (except maybe a few Slytherins) visited Harry at least once and were worried about his coma state. Hermione sighed "He'll tell people about it when he's ready. "But today you all saw that he does not show mercy. I want you all to know that Voldemort is very strong.

Soon. Ron sighed and got up. Ron faked a cough. He became a brave young man full of life and love.he doesn't know what love is. it hit Lily. When dinner was over. Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff table." Silence rang in the hall." he said and met with disbelieving look from his surroundings. the way of love and friendship. some looked awed. Followed closely by the Gryffindor. I think I'll go and visit Harry. someone to love. The Slytherin's table looked surprisingly pensive. over the path of hate. . understanding. Some of the students looked shocked. guys. Even the Slytherins joined to the applause.your right. and love made him what he is today. He grew up in a muggle orphanage without someone to trust.something about his appearance looked oddly familiar.

after your fifth year. "I'm just scared I think. How did she know about that? . "What are you talking about?" Ron asked. did you ever wonder about the prophecy Voldemort wanted so badly?" she asked. Most of my family works against V-Voldemort and suddenly he just popped out of nowhere in the great hall. "Ron. but I just don't see the point of fighting against him. He sighed. right?" "Of course. My entire family work against him and…I don't know we don't even know. what's on your mind?" she asked even though she could read his mind quite well. She hurried after him.Ron was wearing the same cloths he wore in her premonition. "You were moody all through dinner." he said with a shocked expression.if he can be defeated." Lily said." "You do know he just used Harry's body. "Yeah I did but Harry didn't say anything. "Ron wait! I'm coming with you!" she said Ron turned and he gave her a slight smile." Lily looked thoughtful. "So.

"Anything wrong dears?" asked professor Trelawney in her usual misty voice. "Wha-? No. ." "Hey!" he said "I resent that!" Suddenly. It was rather funny seeing his shocked expression. WHEN FLOWER. UNITY AND THE MAYA WILL DESTROY THE DARK LORD." he stammered. deep voice spoke behind them: "WHEN THE FLOWER. She saw the premonition but was never prepared for something like that. THE STAG AND THE PROPHECY BABY WILL BE UNITED." she muttered "always so dense. they were pale and Lily looked like she's going to collapse. "What was that?" she demanded of Ron. Lily and Ron hurried to an empty classroom. STAG AND A BABY WILL BE UNITED…" Ron and Lily turned. THE POWER OF LOVE. a harsh. "N-No…" mumbled Lily."Did you ever think why he wanted it so badly? Why could only Harry hold it?" she asked. "Boys.

James is clearly the stag but who's the flower? He wondered." he explained. "What's going on?" a voice said from the door. "It's me you idiot!" Lily yelled. "Never you mind!" she yelled back." said Ron. still dumbfound. "Again?" "What do you mean again? Why would you believe that fraud?" James asked."Trelawney. "Trelawney made another prophesy. "She made another true prophesy." "Again?" "She did one before Harry was born and one the night Pettigrew ran away from us. watching the exchange in raised eyebrows. "A lily is a flower!" "How did you know what I was thinking about?" he demanded." he said. Hermione and Ginny were standing there. . James. The prophecy baby is Harry. Hermione paled. the panic in his voice evident.

I'm fine. "We all know you are an Animagus James. James looked flabbergasted. "Guys. "Trelawney made another prophesy. hugging him fiercely and kissing his cheek "Are you all right?" she asked. But you don't. what's going on?" "Harry!" Ginny yelled and ran to Harry. noticing their white faces. . completely ignoring James who looked quite annoyed. "Oh! What does it say?" he said with hesitation." he replied in a shaky voice." mumbled Ron. What happened?" he said. "Er…" he mumbled." Harry's eyes widened." said Ginny. "Flower."What did she say?" asked Hermione. "Are you sure those were her exact words?" he said raising his eyebrow. Stag. "Harry…" started Hermione. Prophesy baby to defeat the dark lord. "She said something about a stag. a flower and a prophecy baby… defeating the dark lord. "Yeah.

"Well of course not Harry!" said Lily. "We need to find what the Maya is. "Maya?" said Ron." he said." he said. "Yeah. 'the power of love." looking at their . Hermione. Harry took a deep breath and tucked his hand into the pensive. do you still have Remus's Pensive?" Ron nodded. "Were you there too?" he asked and Lily nodded "Maybe… Ron." he repeated. You know." he said. you know. "Do you mind?" "Not at all mate. any idea?" Hermione shook her head. When he came out. lifting his gaze to meet James's. "Right. "So…I guess you two are in this with me now?" Harry said. Ron returned with the Pensive and pulled a silvery substance from the tip of his wand. "I know it's a very powerful power." he said and went to get the Pensive. "Right. it melts metal. I think it is kind of like being a Fire Elemental. unity and the Maya'. that you can conjure fire in your hands that is so hot. his face was ashen. They could almost hear the wheels turning in his head. "Yeah.

Harry faked a cough "Well. Ron. James and Ginny were trying to crack the prophecy." ." said Harry. we'd better be going than. Hermione and Lily were responsible on researching the Maya and Harry.so we need to do research." Ron punched him lightly in the shoulder. Will you help me?" Ron snorted. "Well. She shivered. Harry grinned. Ginny however. "Obviously the Flower is Lily. so what do we know so far?" asked Ginny after a week and a half. "Hermione's right. the six teenagers worked tirelessly on searching what the 'Maya' was and what the prophecy meant. "Okay. surprising them all with the authority in his voice.awestruck faces she continued "I don't really know about it much because it only was a side remark about Freezing Spells. it was a rhetorical question." In the following week." started James. we have three hours till curfew." she said. the stag is me and the prophecy baby is Harry. "I know. "We need to do research. found it terribly sexy. "We can't let you do that alone you know!" he said.

That's older than Hogwarts!" exclaimed Harry. We are working on it for a week and a half!" Harry cried."I can't believe that's all we came up with. The power allows the group to create a red burning fire that can destroy all evil. Harry and Ginny shrugged. "Yeah." said Lily smiling at James. "Why didn't anyone do this before? I mean." silence took over the group as they all pondered on the news and what it could mean. "What do you think the power of love and unity means?" said James. why didn't anyone use it?" said James. "To tell you the truth. grinning at him "But it's not only that. "The power of the Maya is a strong bonding spell between a group of people who love each other. "WE FOUND IT!" Hermione's voice was heard and she rushed toward them. The potion ingredients are pretty rare and the potion takes . "We found what the power of the Maya is!" said Lily.

"Where did you get those Harry? They're terribly expensive and rare!" Hermione shrieked when she saw the contents of the black sack in Harry's hands. . Hermione quirked an eyebrow. Graphorn horn and dried nettles laid in a sack held by Harry. bicorn horn powder. "Where are we going to brew it?" Hermione asked." Harry said in a cold voice. I'll do it. Lily snooped in his mind and to see who he was going to ask. a dragon horn. will you? I told the twins to bribe the apothecary's vendor." "Harry that's illegal!" yelped Lily. "How are you going to get the ingredients?" she inquired hastily. Two days later. Erumpent tail. "Well. let's just say that I have my sources. the Ashwinder eggs." "Let's do it than. "Even if I'll have to cut my wand arm to get rid of Voldemort forever. "Calm down.about two weeks to brew." he said. There was silence as they thought about it." said Harry immediately.

"You need to trace your finger all through Kingstein Street. He wasn't the best transfiguration student in his year for nothing." said Lily."Maybe we can use the empty room behind the map of Argyllshire on the second floor. She met with James's shocked face and the other four puzzled faces. "Er…Well…" "Never mind that now." "What if someone will find us?" "Oh. sensing Lily's discomfort "James. "Of course not James." everybody laughed. astonished. can you conjure a large cauldron?" "Certainly. ." said Lily without thinking. "So how do you get into the room?" asked Ginny." James replied haughtily. "How did you know?" James asked her. "How do you know what I was thinking Lily?" James asked suspiciously." Harry said." said James with a glint in his eyes "If Remus thought that was safe enough for snogging. She had read it in his thoughts but she's never going to admit it. no one will find us. I'm sure we can brew a potion there.

"Second of all. we better focus. perplexed." said Harry." she said." said Dumbledore in breakfast. James easily conjured the cauldron. looking at her feet. "Well. Lily blushed. the next day. "You can…read minds?" said James slowly. I-I can read minds. James conjure the cauldron please. this year we will have another ball that will take place in two days before Christmas. James. "Right." Harry ordered. Cheers erupted from all of the tables and Harry's face went an interesting shade of pink with embarrassment. "Let's go then. once again surprising them all by the authority in his voice." said Lily. Holy crap "Language. "That happens too. The statement shocked everyone but Hermione. Welcome back." "Okay. I want to welcome Mr Potter back.Lily looked hesitating but decided to tell them "Er…well… you see. as curious and shocking that is. Harry." she added. Students who . what do we add first?"

Ron's heart sank to his knees and he looked devastated." she replied. grinning." she said frowning." he whined. and a trip to Hogsmede is scheduled in two days at two o'clock in the noon. Hermione raised a careful eyebrow. the students cheered. "Ginny would you go to the ball with me?" asked Harry with a smile. "Dress robes are necessary." once again. I really want to…will she . who did not appreciate the joke. He did not see the wink between Ginny and Hermione. "Don't be a git! Of course I'll go with you!" said Hermione and everyone laughed at the sight of Ron. Should I ask Lily? James thought." excited murmurs ran between the girls while the boys exchanged looks or semi-horror at the prospect of asking a girl to the ball.want to go home will still be able to. would you go to the ball with me?" asked Ron. Ron knew better than to start complaining and decided to put up his own action. "I don't know Ron…. "That was mean. "Of course Harry. "Hermione.

" To an outsider. so his plan did work." "How about DVD?" said Ginny." said Hermione in a careful tone. Now. The girls rolled their eyes at him "Think of what Lily told us yesterday. James." said Ron thickly. "Oh. You know what I mean.say yes? "Of course I will James." Understanding crossed Ginny. The others looked utterly confused as James smirked. "You are a chicken for not asking aloud. understood it perfectly. . "What? It takes me time. this conversation would be utterly confusing." said Lily without thinking." said Lily. James smirked. "Shut it." said Hermione "I looked there at the morning. The gang however. all of the gang rolled their eyes. Harry and Hermione's faces. Ron looked thoughtful for a few seconds until"OH!" he exclaimed. "Talking to yourself Lily? That's the first sign of madness you know. it's going on well." he said. "Are you sure you're all right? He didn't say a word Lily. ignoring Ron.

Hermione nodded to her to open it. Hermione's curiosity overruled her urge to listen to professor Binns and she wrote a note to Lily. He knew it was selfish. He wasn't scared of him he was scared to die."When are you going to use it?" inquired Ron. It was now Hermione's turn to look surprised as she raised an eyebrow. She opened it and scribbled an answer." said Hermione. Die'. Harry gulped. He's afraid to die. Harry didn't want to attack Voldemort until it is absolutely necessary. We can keep it in the meantime.

(A/N: Lily will be marked in italics and Hermione underlined) Can you tell me why Harry wants to wait? -Hr Lily looked up in surprise as the note landed on her notes. right?" he said anxiously "Yeah. He was afraid that Lily or James would die and by that erase him from the world. DVD is the abbreviation for 'Die Voldemort. but he just did.

Well. I did. He is afraid of what would happen if one of us dies. Last year's one (my year) is too small. Of course I'll come! They both grinned and the bell rang. "Hermione! I am shocked! You passed notes in class!" said Ron with a smirk. would you come with me? Do you have a dress robe? I don't. What are you going to wear to the ball? I really don't know." she ." she said. did you cook the flobberworms in the break? We need to put it in after class. "Make it really fast Harry because DVD is waiting. Ron scowled in the mention of his full name. he wasn't only scared for himself.Are you sure? Harry was never afraid of dying. "Hermione. can I talk to you for a second?" asked Harry anxiously. He was scared for James and me too. "Shut it Ronald. I need to buy new dress robes. Can you blame him? Anyway. He always runs into trouble without thinking of the consequences.

"It's too expensive. I know that Ginny doesn't have enough money to buy a new dress robes so…" he took a deep breath and Hermione smiled "Can I give you money and you'll buy her the dress she wants? Without telling her it was from me? I mean…as a gift from you?" "Harry." she said sadly looking at the price tag. "Hermione." she added after Ginny entered the dressing cell. just above the ankle. "Thank you so much!" he said. the combination of her soft curly red hair and white robe made her look like an angel.

"It's about time you show up!" said Ron. putting up a nice act. "It is no problem at all." Hermione said.Hermione waved her hand. smiling at her excited friend. "But…" "No buts Ginny! You'll take the dress!" Ginny huffed but immediately grinned and ran to hug Hermione. She came closer to him. When Ginny came down the stairs two days before Christmas. "How's your dress Ginny?" said Harry and leaned to look at the bag. . Harry's brain turned to mush . Ginny smacked his head. "Thank you so much!" she said. They were all sitting in The Three Broomsticks and James went to order Butterbeers. Harry! You'll see it soon enough" she said as Harry rubbed his head muttering about mad redheads. "Don't you look at the dress.She looked beautiful and he temporarily lost the ability to speak. "Nonsense! I will pay for it! You are not leaving without it!" she said.

"You look like an angel. You look quite dashing yourself." he said dramatically. "I told you. lovely lady?" "Defiantly." she said with a bow. every curl. He didn't want to mess it up." he said in awe. "You look fantastic Lil. . you look great."You look amazing." whispered Harry in her ears and sending shivers down her spine.

I think it is time for us to begin. who turned to have a deep yet pleasant voice. He narrowed his eyes at her and she looked innocently back at him. the food began to disappear and Harry excused himself to the loo. Our first singer will be Ms Susan Bones. The students gathered in the dance floor and Dumbledore coughed a bit. "Girls just wanna have fun. Lily smirked. "Well. She finished the song. a seventh year Hufflepuff." and turned out to be a very talented singer. He did not have a deep or high-pitched voice. "Now.it was rather magnificent."

A second year boy answered. Harry rolled his eyes. "My luck can't get worse. The owl was pitch black with two green spots on his right wing and it was carrying a green box addressed to Harry." he said." he said and took the burden away from the black owl. when an owl soared through the window and perched arrogantly in front of him. No one heard nor saw professor McGonagall entering the common room for announcing that there are no midnight celebrations today. "Why not?" Harry asked. "Are you crazy? Black owls are bad luck. The Gryffindor house silenced so suddenly it was as though someone turned off a radio abruptly.*Chapter 13*: Chapter 14: I Don't Want To Lose You I Don't Want To Lose You On the evening of December 31. "Harry. . Harry could be found sitting in his favorite armchair by the fire and struggling through a particularly difficult essay from Professor Flitwick. don't touch that!" said Ron loudly as Harry moved to take the box.

" said Voldemort's voice. Harry opened the box cautiously and a loud "BOOM" was heard all over the room. A sound of a door bursting open jumped the students and professor McGonagall. please no. Potter. take Harry and go. it's him. it was a beautiful handiwork. "Nothing is going to save your precious Mudblood. now…" "Not Harry. kill me instead-" . "Goddamn you Voldemort!" screamed James's voice all over the common room "Don't you dare touch Lily!" Voldemort laughed again and roared: "AVADA KEDAVARA!" a 'thud' was heard and shortly afterwards a sound of someone climbing stairs. you silly girl. A male voice yelled. "Not Harry! Not Harry! Please not Harry!" she screamed. Some of the students screamed." Harry turned white. "Lily. making McGonagall grab her chest. Harry looked at the silver engravings on the box. A woman's' voice screamed. A high-pitched laughter was heard.Lily watched Harry looking at the box. stand aside. She had an uneasy feeling in the pit of her stomach. I'll hold him off. take me. Voldemort's voice sounded again. "Stand aside.

please…have mercy…have mercy. Harry looked and saw the dead body of his father." Voldemort laughed maliciously again. The other picture was his mother's body lying lifeless on the ground near toddler Harry who was looking between his mothers' body to the picture. his glasses askew and his eyes empty. "Everybody . "Avada Kedavara!" a 'thud' was heard again and after a few seconds of silence. Harry gave a sound like a scared dog and dropped the photos. who was growing paler by the minute. Professor McGonagall stood speechless in front of her students and tried hard not to burst into tears. Lily fainted and James's face was white and blank. Harry?" Voldemort said in mocking voice and laughed. Did you enjoy my memory. "Not Harry.Lily and James were both white as well by now and watched in horror at Harry. He hugged his knees to his chest and rocked back and forth. Voldemort's voice was sounded even louder. The green box in Harry's shaken hands transfigured itself into two pictures. "Happy new year Potter.

. After a few seconds. "Ennervate" she muttered and pointed her wand at Lily's body. "Shh…there.back to their dormitories immediately" she said briskly "You too Mr. As she made the move to go. "Minerva?" a calm voice said from the common room portrait. there Lily. "I'm so scared." she added after Ron and Hermione didn't move. McGonagall turned to see the headmaster motioning for her to come. Granger. This seemed to snap James out of his reverie and he took her from McGonagall's arms. Lily clutched her robe like a life rope. James rocked her gently. Professor McGonagall pulled out her wand and sent a silver mist through the Fat Lady portrait. Lily stirred and opened her eyes. James took Lily in his arms and she wrapped her arms around his neck. Ms. she let out a whimper." soothed professor McGonagall she held Lily in her arms. They couldn't however. calm down…it's over now. Lily whimpered." she whispered. ignore the personal references. barely audible. Weasley. He kissed her temple.

Many students got down the stairs. "Where is Harry?" asked Dumbledore. and McGonagall talked to Dumbledore. "Harry? Harry what's wrong!" said Ginny's panicked voice. "Harry?" said Dumbledore and touched Harry's arm. wondering how and why their tower is shaking." said Dumbledore forcefully. noticed it after a few minutes when the slight shake became a strong shake that seemed to have knocked several screaming portraits off the walls. almost as audible. He scanned the common room and saw him rocking back and forth. but neither of them felt the slight shook of the Gryffindor tower. "Harry?" said Ginny and touched Harry's arm."I know. sounding a bit afraid." he said. They did however. "Harry. He jerked his hand away though. James and Lily soothed each other. She felt . a bright red aura seemed to have materialised around him. The red aura turned a little pink and got more transparent with each step Ginny took towards Harry. snap out of it. With each rock. and small red boils appeared on his hand.

she couldn't. Suddenly.electric yet gentle shots run up her arm and around her body from where she touched Harry. Harry opened his eyes. "I was thinking about opening your own wing in here Mr. Even if Ginny wanted to let go. Ginny was panting heavily as if she just came back from a running contest with Voldemort. ignoring the noise the students around him were making. "Ginny don't let go. Her hand felt like it was glued to Harry's arm and she seemed to be getting power and energy from him." said Dumbledore. It's not that I don't like to see you but you are here way too often and way too long. Harry stopped rocking and fell limply to the common rooms' carpet." said Harry dryly. it all stopped. "Here. whatever you do. Potter. He had a hard time pulling the words out of his throat." said Madam Pomfrey while thrusting a goblet to his lips. The potion tasted like owls' poo. "I love you too Madam Pomfrey. swallow this. . They seemed to be too heavy so he shut them down again." Madam Pomfrey's voice jumped Harry from his semi-sleep state.

" "Is that all?" Dumbledore asked politely with an almost undetectable frown. He reached out and put his glasses back on the bridge of his nose. . "You think this is funny Gin? Someone forcing a potion through your throat.He twisted his face in disgust and someone giggled." started Harry "why am I here?" Ginny raised an eyebrow "you don't remember?" she asked. "Professor. Harry turned red with embarrassment. Madam Pomfrey was fussing after a second year and Dumbledore and Ginny was sitting next to him. When Harry nodded." said the headmaster's cool voice. Harry wracked his brain "I remember I got this green box by a black owl. Even Hedwig's poo is tastier. puzzled. Dumbledore gave him a recapture of the events that happened in the common room and Harry was speechless. Ginny held his hand tightly. "It is nice of you to come back to us Mr. Potter." Ginny laughed even harder and Harry had to chuckle himself. He did not know that somebody else was there.

mentioning the Occlumency lessons he taught Harry in his sixth year. "But sir. it appears that Lily Potter's love left her mark in more than one way…" he said and walked dreamily away from the room. his immediate react in the mention of the worst year of his life."I…the Gryffindor tower was shaking because of me?" "Never underestimate your powers Harry." Dumbledore said. you do remember what I told you in the end of your fifth year do you?" "How can I forget?" Harry answered dryly. why was Ginny the only one who managed to touch me?" Harry asked "And what happened to her?" Dumbledore's eyes twinkled "Ahh…you see. leaving two bewildered teenagers. "Of course! Don't you see it?" cried Hermione two hours later when Harry returned to the common room. "Well. it seems like your powers are growing Harry and as such you must learn to control them and keep your emotions in check like I taught you last year. . "What's the point of trying if you'll find the answer eventually?" grumbled Ron and chewed his Chocolate Frog's head.

"It'll be finished in two days. This however. . "Lily. Than." "What have we got so far?" asked Ron. Lily Potter's love was meant for the ones Harry feel pure love towards. he's gone. Harry and James need to drink a potion in order to get this Maya power. it is doing beautifully. Ginny rolled her eyes "Your life has reached to their goal. "Ginny managed to touch Harry because she is the only one who loves Harry and Harry loves her in more than a friendly way. what where you saying Hermione?" she asked Hermione who was busy watching her boyfriend's victory dance." said James quietly. "I checked on it two hours ago." The group sat in silence "How's the potion going? My shift is just in two days. "What spell?" inquired Lily." said Hermione with the spark that was in her eyes whenever she had a project in hand." said Ginny with a smile. you three need to shout an incantation on Voldemort and 'puff'.Hermione shot her boyfriend a dirty look "OI! I got Agrippa!" he shouted with an ecstatic expression. snapped her out of her trance. Like a love between a mother and her son and like a love between lovers. Anyway.

"No. Ginny huffed and walked out of the common room angrily. "Have you ever thought of what SHE might do if she loses you?" said Hermione venomously. Almost. have you practiced it yet?" asked Hermione. Lily glared at him. when was the last time you thought of her?" "I think about her all the time!" Hermione almost giggled. "That's a tricky one. Harry blushed. making him jump in surprise. . Harry groaned "Yes Harry. Hermione and Lily glared at him." she said snappishly. "The spell is 'Harogroa Lanessah'" said Harry. I thought if we would wait…" "You can't WAIT Harry! What if he comes soon? What if he would attack Hogwarts? What then?" yelled Ginny suddenly."Can't you just read it in their minds?" Ron asked sarcastically. "It's not nice to snoop into other people' thoughts. "What did I do?" Harry yelped. "Sorry…" muttered Harry. trying to stop the near fight between his best friend and his future mother.

" said James. "That's beside the point. "Lily is not even your girlfriend."Not like THAT you idiot. "Maybe we should organise a dinner in 'the three broomsticks' you know…a romantic candlelight dinner." said Hermione and followed Ginny outside the common room. "I guess neither of us really did that to our girlfriends. "How can you be so…romantic?" asked Ron with a mixed . Ron seemed thoughtful "I guess we didn't really pay much attention to them did we?" the three teenagers shook their heads. you're a man." James glared at him. when have you thought about how SHE feels about the ordeal? When have you ever thought about HER fears? HER ideas?" Harry sat in silence. Ron snorted." James snarled. it's your job to be the thick one!" said Lily with a giggle and patted Harry on his head like a dog before following Hermione. I'm sure Rosemerta will let us. "Don't worry Harry." said James quietly. "I thought as much. letting Hermione's words sink.

Ginny's head was in Harry's lap and he was playing with her hair absently.. James shrugged. what will we do?" Hermione.but…school rules…" she said." "I'd love to. "Oh." "Mmm?" . trying to find an herb for Herbology.. I thought maybe we can have dinner in 'the three broomsticks'" Hermione's face lit "Really? You'd like that?" she asked excitedly. "Well. "Gin. "Yeah. Ron looked nervous. suddenly whining. all right…" Harry and Ginny were sitting in a well-hidden loveseat on the edge of the Forbidden Forest. "Well. "No.look of jealousy and disgust. why?" Hermione asked. I suppose not. Seeing the pleading face of Ron convinced her. are you free next Friday?" asked Ron while walking with Hermione around the lake.

Lily lifted her head. Lily was in the common room. deepening the kiss."Would you like us to go to 'the three broomsticks' on Friday?" Ginny sat up and looked into Harry's eyes "Of course…" she said softly. It was soon a full snogging session. Harry smiled "Well.broomsticks…for…dinner…on…Friday?" James asked between kisses. . it settled than. sitting in one of the armchairs near James and doing her Potions homework. "Lil" said James." said James suddenly. "Yes?" James leaned. "Hey." he said and kissed her. Lily dropped her quill and put her arms around James's neck. Lil. gasping for breath.go…to…the… three…. "Mmm?" "Would…you…like…us…to…. giving her a kiss on her mouth.

" Lily said to James. James and Lily spent almost every evening in the Room of Requirements. "I'll take that as a yes. "No-You-Are-Not-Giving-Up" said Lily through clenched teeth while sending Harry a Stinging Charm to his buttocks. sitting with a 'thump' on the floor.. "No James! You need to move your wand like that. forgetting all about her Potions homework. Harry. . practicing the spell.Lily was so shocked she lifted her hands off James's neck "Do you mean that?" James rolled his eyed. Lily smirked between kisses and got back to attack James in full force." thought James. "Of course I do. She had accomplished the spell in third attempt but Harry and James were making very little process. I give up!" exclaimed Harry. "AHHH! Ok I'm up just get this stupid spell off me!" Harry yelped while grabbing his buttocks. showing him a particularly complicated hand movement. why else would I ask?" Lily shrugged and kissed him again. "I can't do this.

It's 'lanessah' not 'lannsa'" Harry tried and an orange light shot off his wand hitting James square in the chest. the potion's ready. Harry." "That's good. Inside. you're saying it wrong." Harry blushed with embarrassment. "Right. Suddenly Hermione burst into the room. "Of course he's ok. silencing him. Lily was gasping breath from laughing so hard about how she can control the two saviors of the world with a faked glare. gasping for breath. back into his 'leader' mood "Can we drink it now or should we wait?" he asked." said Harry. but with glittering eyes "Guys. the spell only destroys evil.Lily looked at him sternly "Are you going to practice the spell?" "Awww! Yes!" he yelled "Just get it off!" James sniggered ad Lily shot him a glare." said James "Do I look evil to you Harry?" James did his best puppy face and Lily was on verge of a particularly long 'owww'" "No. . "I'm so sorry! Are you ok?" asked Harry in panic. She took the charm off "Now." Lily said reasonably.

" Hermione said knowingly "Did you all complete the incantation?" "Harry just did but he needs to practice. we'll just have to make sure it'll work. B-But it won't happen right?" said Hermione fearfully. Harry and James were utterly exhausted."Wait for what? You need to drink it if you know the incantation and not use the spell until you fire it towards who you want it to vanquish. you…you would die. Hermione cleared her throat "Well…I-In that case." he said forcefully. "I'm the most powerful?" asked Harry in wonder. It shoots an orange light instead of yellow." Harry groaned. In midnight. "What happens if it won't work. "Did you forget the first prophesy?" asked Hermione "You'll have the power that the dark lord knows not. The most powerful one is the one that will do the most damage so his light is orange and not yellow. because you are the most powerful. James managed to complete the spell half an hour after ." "It suppose to." said Hermione absently. Harry looked white but composed "Well than. suddenly anxious." he asked.

After he left she sighed What if it goes wrong? I can't lose him." "No problem Harry." she said." Ginny nodded and stroked his head "Why don't you go to sleep? You have Snape tomorrow. "Are you ok Harry?" Ginny asked Harry quietly." he said and got up. managing to increase the orange light each time. Ginny managed a watery smile "You think so? You think he'll propose when it's over?" . "It won't go wrong Ginny.Hermione left and Harry tried the spell several more times. we have been practicing for a short period of time but Harry is the best in that. we'll kill Voldemort and you'll get married and have lots of babies…" Lily said with an undetectable smirk." "You won't lose him Ginny." she said." he said briskly "I'm just tired. "I can't lose him Lily. you don't want to slop in his class. tears forming in her eyes "I just can't. I think I'll do that." Harry managed a smile "Thanks Gin. "I'm fine." Lily said to her quietly. kissing the top of her head "Thanks.

"I'm scared too you know."I'm sure he will. it's written all over his face. I don't know what I'll do without James. "Whatever. Lily huffed." said Lily "What if James or me will get killed? Harry will have no future whatsoever…and besides that. giggling mentally of the memory of the day she detected that thought in his mind. Not that he wasn't…" Ginny laughed." said Lily and mind she commented to herself. "You love him don't you?" "What? NO!" Ginny giggled even harder "Ginny! Stop laughing!" "Y-You do…Y-You can-can't deny it!" she said between giggles." said Lily." Lily said sadly. Ginny giggled "and to think you hated him four month ago…" Lily groaned. "Please don't mention it…I was a complete idiot." "It also helps that you already know he'll propose…" "Ginny! I don't want him to do it just because he has to. .

"No they are not. "Are professors allowed here?" asked Lily with a smile. and he's too thick to even realise what a ring is!" Lily laughed. I grew up with the marauders and was engaged to one of them. "What about your brother?" said Lily. but it's so funny to tease him…he goes all red and there's Hermione who looks like she want to laugh but can't since he's her boyfriend…" "May I interrupt?" a voice said behind them. "Not by choice I tell you."Don't be thick Lily! He's smitten! There's no way he'll let you go!" Lily tried not to look too pleased. 4." Ginny said "But you meant Ron right?" Lily nodded "That's idiot number 6. "I know. "You have six brothers?" Lily asked disbelievingly." Ginny softened. I must have caught something…" Lily and Ginny looked at . Amy looked mischievous. "He's not that bad you know. Ginny snorted "Which one? Idiot number 1." said Ginny with a smile to Professor Isadora. 3. However. 5 or 6?" she said. "Sure professor. 2.

it wasn't Remus." "What? No way! You like hated him with passion!" Amy sniffed "You hated James too. are being ridicules! I was engaged to Sirius." "Well…it was different…" "How? By the fact that Sirius didn't actually make any moves?" asked Amy smoothly. "Well. you are lame.her with wonder. "GOD NO!" Amy yelled "Lily! That was disgusting!" Lily laughed but sobered quickly "Was it James than? Did James have two women?" "Lily. and he was showing me something yesterday…" "So who was it? Was it Peter?" said Lily with a disgusted look." . "You were married to one of the marauders? Who? Was it Remus? You two seemed very cosy on the teacher's table yesterday…" Amy smiled "No. yes…" "Lily.

Ginny crawled into the bed where Harry slept and intertwined her soft legs with his warm ones. This feels nice she thought as Harry put his arms around her instinctively. Only boxers. One of the things that comes when you are Harry Potter's girlfriend. Stop those thoughts! Said the reasonable voice in her mind. What would happen if she will really lose him? How could she live without him? And with these thoughts. That's a relief in case I'll ever marry him. Goody… said the annoying one. I didn't even know I had three different voices in my mind. She snuggled into his warm body and sighed.Ginny slipped into the boy's dormitories undetected and closed the door quietly. Getting closer to Harry's bed. James gave a loud snore and rolled on his back. Said the naughty one. He sleeps in boxers. Ginny went . she noticed he was the only one not snoring. "Stop it!" she whispered. Five loud snoring voices welcomed her and she had to try very had not to scream with disgust. spreading his legs.

I promise. "I don't want to know what he'll do when…" . In fact Harry was quite certain he was still dreaming because he could feel Ginny's breathing on his chest." he said in a strained voice. Harry stirred." Harry chuckled "I won't Gin.to sleep. Ginny's heart leaped." "I wanted to sleep here. Harry groaned and pulled her mouth away from his "Ron will wake up soon. I won't" she whispered back. He had a nice dream about Ginny. I wanted to make sure you won't go dying on me Harry. Harry opened his eyes in astonishment." She said in a teasing voice "I could get used to that…" "Please do. He held her tighter and murmured "Don't you ever go away from me Gin. "What a nice way to wake up in the morning." "I promise." he said and kissed her lightly on her mouth. a little troubled but pleased. "Ginny?" he said in a whisper and blushing "What are you doing here? Ron will kill us." Harry murmured between kisses.

he was glaring forcefully at Ginny. "You can't tell me what to do. Harry leaped away from Ginny and looked fearfully at Ron. Ginny took the chance that Ron's back was turned. Ginny however." he said. Ron however. do you hear me?" he said in his coldest voice." she said and pulled his head back to her mouth "He has his own girlfriend to snog. . but I still don't go to her room and sleep with her. "I'll deal with you later."Screw Ron." Ron said. "Petrificus Totalus!" she cried Ron fell backwards with a 'thud' "You shouldn't have done this. "Ron…" Harry started taking a step forward. wasn't looking at Harry." "Maybe." said Seamus who was awake by now. and took her wand out." said Ron's voice. "Get out of here this instant and I don't want to see you here ever again. "You will go out of here right now. wasn't fazed. He took two steps back however when Ron turned his glaring eyes to Harry." she said boldly. cold as ice.

How on earth did you manage to calm her down in ten minutes?" James looked at Remus with an elated expression that caused Remus's frown to deepen. with deep frown lines and grey hairs.

I take it that you and Potter got along?" it took Lily several seconds to understand what Amy wanted. arguing with him once a week. "Black? Sirius Black?" asked Lily. She slowly opened the door and let a small smile grace her lips. how was the meeting?" asked Amy cheerfully." She said with a frown "Awfully weird if you ask me. "Of course Sirius Black. Amy frowned but let it drop. Lily ran and hugged Amy. looking over Lily's shoulder in suspicion. remembering that Sirius and Amy were engaged before— "He sent me letters this summer. ok.

Remus and Sirius spat the pumpkin juice they were drinking all over each other and stared at James in amazement and Peter froze in the middle of chewing a chocolate frog. Do not! James was staring outside of the window. James. You do I do not! Do too! Lily laughed even harder when she heard Amy's thoughts. chuckling at Amy's red cheeks. James turned into a very interesting shade of crimson before deciding to break the awkward silence. You made her think you like Black."You're rambling. that was still sunk in thoughts about the future blurted "Made me fall in love with her.

"You…love Lily?" said Remus slowly. The rest of the train ride was passed with chess playing. their last. They also spent a good hour thinking about pranks for the next year. a smile slowly spreading over his face. but love? That's a big thing…" said Sirius seriously. a lot of chocolate. The problem was that someone was already standing there. Sirius grinned and James looked at his shoes that . "Uh…" "I knew you fancied her mate. looking like goldfish and knowing it. "Don't you think I know that?" snapped James but then sighed and rubbed his eyes in exhaustion "Look…I'm sorry for snapping but I didn't mean to say that…it was just a blurt." "Sure it was" said Remus. Remus and Peter walked towards one of the carriages. and mostly teasing. "Sirius…what about Amy?" The others kept staring at him silently.half-squealed. James. Remus blushed. the grin never leaving his young face. Sirius. When the train stopped and the students went to search for carriages.

"Let's find another carriage. his dark hair falling elegantly on his eyes. So did James and Lily. Amy fought the smile that threatened to break on her face. . Sirius didn't blush but two faint pink spots appeared on his cheeks." said Remus pleasantly. "We're not Jenny." She said to the girls and the girls got into the carriage. Jenny grinned brightly to Remus. Let's go." Peter said as rain drops started to fall. "Do you fancy Jenny. "Thanks Remus.suddenly became extremely interesting. Lily and an unfamiliar brunette faced the group. Remus turned red again. "I will if you will. Moony?" teased Sirius." said the brunette. "Are you taking that carriage Black?" said Amy in a bored voice. did Amy answer any of your 'Blackmails'?" asked Remus with a smirk once they entered the carriage." said Sirius smoothly. "We need to know if you're here. that's all. Amy. "So. chatting with each other. 'Blackmail' was the name James invented to Sirius's mail.

and Peter actually drooled."A Howler once. After the feast. "Sure she does. and for our older students. welcome. James's mouth filled with saliva." he said defiantly. welcome back. if I remember correctly. "She likes me. "Now that we are all fed and watered. Amy" Sirius definitely blushed now. Professor Summer. Dumbledore stood up again." said James. "For those of you who are new. "Burned half of my new parchments to dust" "She did write me a normal letter once!" "Oh yeah. But don't let an old man's blabbing stand between you and the food!" Soon the tables was groaning under the weight of almost every food imaginable." Dumbledore boomed." . starting to remember the summer holiday. I want to sadly announce that our old dear professor Gibert has retired after 50 years of teaching and I am delighted to introduce you to your new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher." the boys said as one. don't write to me ever again you idiot. "Welcome to another year at Hogwarts." said James sarcastically "Black.

the forbidden forest is exactly this – forbidden. There were a few clapping. Mr Potter notified me about something you wish to discuss with me?" Lily looked very . You are now welcomed to go to your dormitories except the Head Boy and Girl. Dumbledore smile at him and the clapping stopped. James looked at Dumbledore who was glancing at him and mouthed to him. "We need to talk. "For the usual start-of-term notices. no magic is allowed between corridors. determinedly not looking at James. "You wanted to talk to us professor?" said Lily as they went to stand in front of the headmaster. Lily got one from Amy." Peter gave James pitying look.A tall ginger-haired plumped witch stood up." Sirius's eyes widened and he noted to himself to buy one later – it would be good for detentions. "And last. "Actually Ms Evans. James threw his head back a bit to Lily's direction and rolled his eyes. I didn't. Mr Filch has asked me to remind you that the list of forbidden items was has expended and now include two-way mirrors." Dumbledore's eyes twinkled and he gave James a slight nod.

. I think you need to read it before letting us explain. Dumbledore broke the seal and the scroll unrolled itself magically. "I did. "So you were in the future?" he asked." James said patiently." He said with an edge to his voice. And rolled. "You did. It was about a mile length. even though he was slightly alarmed. Dumbledore's eyes hardened a little. Dumbledore looked amused "Why would someone need me so desperately?" he muttered." said James and summoned with his wand the letter Dumbledore wrote to his past self. "Very well. And rolled. frowning. And rolled.angry at her shoes all of a sudden and glared at them. Dumbledore read the first meter of the scroll." said Dumbledore still looking stern behind his half-moon glasses "Shall we go to my office then?" Once they were seated comfortably at the office. "Who gave you that seal Mr Potter? It is my personal one. Dumbledore did a very good concealing charm on that scroll. James and Lily looked open mouthed at the scroll.

"I heard there was a lovely Christmas ball…" he muttered quietly but even though. Evans? Lily gasped silently. didn't it Miss. followed by Lily. Lily turned and walked to the girls' dormitories. don't you think? Lily sent a glare at the headmaster clearly saying stay-out-of-it. an awkward silence following them up to the common room. But before you go. They walked slowly and quietly. Dumbledore looked at him. smiling mischievously "Of course Mr Potter. . James watched the exchange and knew what was happening. side-byside. The silent communication annoyed him.James and Lily nodded. hearing Dumbledore's thoughts the poor guy waited long enough. Dumbledore gave her an innocent look. "May I go sir?" James asked testily. just one more question: do you think a Christmas ball is in order?" James mumbled a yes and walked out of the room. stopping when James' voice reached her ears. James and Lily heard and blushed furiously. looking down in embarrassment. you and Miss Evans helped the light side a great deal. the twinkle in his eyes very noticeable. So it finally has happened.

"Good morning Lily. "Morning James. Amy and Jenny were eating breakfast when the marauders came into the hall and sat across them. "Night J." he called quietly. She looked at Dumbledore and narrowed her eyes." . He was looking at them with a smile Lily could swear was really a smirk." she called back and came up the stairs. James nudged Lily with his foot and pointed in his head at Dumbledore. Remus." Lily said and smiled shyly. Both Lily and James turned pink."Night Lil. "Talk now. Lily turned and smiled a very small smile. All movement besides them stopped. Peter and Sirius were staring at them in shock. Jenny. Amy. "What?" she snapped at Amy who was still watching her with her mouth hanging open. "J?" James muttered to no one. shutting the door quietly behind her. Lily." said James with a smile.

" "Congratulations. but Amy had already grabbed her arm and dragged her from the Great Hall. "Sid you just say 'morning James'?" inquired Amy." "Yeah." "Yes. "What? I didn't say anything!" said Amy in confusion. and Professor McGonagall taught how to transfigure a table into an animal." squealed Amy and hugged Lily thinking I knew she liked him! "I do not!" yelped Lily before she could help herself. James and Lily did it the first time. which made the professor's eyebrows rise." "You called him James. "Yes." "You spoke to Potter. . Lily walked away from the room. "What?" raged Lily. leaving a very confused Amy behind. but before Amy could investigate her any longer. The last lesson of the day was Transfiguration."I'm eating!" Lily protested.

"Very good Mr Potter. "Yes Professor?" Lily asked politely. You two will be at the prefects' room and do the work the teachers assign you there. "There is a prefect meeting in two days in the prefects' room. Well." She said and Lily could have sworn she detected a tiny smile. you will hang in Slytherin. don't look at me like that. a word if you may" said Professor McGonagall in the end of the lesson. telling where you stopped in each subject and the teachers will give you material to do during class. Please hang notes in ALL of the common rooMs Yes Potter. how extraordinary… Lily rolled her eyes. professor Dumbledore announced me about your little…uh… adventure to the future. I don't want to find you doing something…else…while you're . well. "Mr Potter. "And professor Dumbledore and I thought it would be a good idea if you would continue from where you stopped there. 20 points to Gryffindor. Please send me a note later." Sirius and Remus did it on third try and Peter managed it by the end of the lesson. This was becoming ridiculous. Ms Evans." She took a deep breath "For another matter. Potter and Evans became Potter and Potter. Ms Evans.

unaware of Peter. James and Peter stood there sporting identical looks of shock." McGonagall said it so sternly that James and Lily didn't dare to argue with her." snapped Amy. Jenny and now James and Lily watching in amusement. "I wanted to write to you. . his best friend.supposed to study. "You may go. Remus. but they couldn't help the blush spreading all over their faces. He knew he had a thing for her but he didn't know it deepened over the summer. And even James. "Why?" "Because I like you dammit!" he said angrily and left the Great Hall with a slam of the doors." exclaimed Sirius who looked quite agitated. they saw that Amy and Sirius were in the middle of their traditional argument. Remus. "-and I never asked you to write to me." When James and Lily returned to the great hall for supper snack. never heard him saying that he liked Amy. Never before have had they heard their friend confess to someone like that.

When they entered the dormitory. He wrote you letters over the summer didn't he?" asked Lily. "I'm sure he does. Amy stood stunned in the Great Hall. they saw Sirius sitting on his bed.James shook his head in amazement – it wasn't supposed to be such a shock to him after all. as they entered the common room. "Neither did I. "She just won't let me…" he said quietly." James muttered to Remus and Peter." said both James and Remus. They both nodded and walked out of the Great Hall. unable to talk. "Do you really think he like me?" she asked them while they were walking towards the Gryffindor tower. "Do you really like her Padfoot?" said James quietly. Amy nodded and entered the . Sirius nodded. "We better go after him. Jenny and Lily giggled at her expression and it seemed to snap her out of her reverie. too amazed to shout jinx. playing the guitar they all bought together." pointed Jenny. "I never thought…" Peter trailed off. "He yelled it to the Great Hall.

remembering how it was Harry's favorite. "You have to talk to him of course. covered with feathers and in her pajamas. her hair nearly as messy as James'. "Stop laughing Lily! What am I going to do?" said Amy in a pained voice." said Lily with a smirk while they entered the dormitory and sat on their beds." yelped Amy.common room. He was with the ." said Jenny." said Lily. as if it was obvious. "But I thought he is doing it to annoy me…" she said with a slightly whiny edge to her voice. "What? No way. Lily ran away yelping from the room. It soon became a full pillow war. Speaking of which… James was sitting on one of the armchairs close to the fire. "How am going to talk to him?" "Well. opening your mouth is a good start. "Apparently not. you have a horrible smell…" Jenny and Lily laughed loudly and Amy managed a smile "Oh shut up you!" she said and threw a pillow at Lily. it reminded Lily of Hermione. "But make sure you brush your teeth before.

And as much as I love Harry and adore H/G. this story is about Lily and James. letting Lily jump into his lap and embrace." murmured Lily. There were no explanations needed. He kissed her forehead and put his guitar on his side. They hugged each other close. happy and relaxed when she heard James singing that she ran to him and wrapped her arms around his neck. James stopped playing and looked back with surprise and saw Lily smiling at him. putting her head on his chest. I wanted them to stay apart for a little longer but I just can't do that!

putting her head on his chest. I don't want to find you doing something…else…while you're supposed to study." James stopped playing and looked back with surprise and saw Lily smiling at him. There were no explanations needed. "I missed you J. You two will be at the prefects' room and do the work the teachers assign you there. They hugged each other close.

McGonagall said and Lily could have sworn she detected a tiny smile.

"Why do we need to learn that?" Lily sighed.Chapter 17 "House keeping charms!" cried James in alarm. James interrupted her "What does it has to do with House Keeping charms?" he asked thickly with a confused look on his face. You need to know how to do your own laundry and make food." "Yes 'oh'." Lily said in exasperation. Lily's face burned as she heard his . Realisation dawned on James's face and Lily rolled her eyes." Lily started.'" said Lily amusedly. watching Lily's face. "Because we are seventh years and going to finish Hogwarts soon. They were sitting of the floor of the Heads common room and looking at the roll of parchment professor Flitwick gave them with the assignments. She's beautiful. "Now please conjure a bowl with hot water so we can practice the Laundry Charms. in her best know-it-all voice. "Because after you will finish Hogwarts you are an adult. "Oh." James did so with a wave of his wand. boys could be so dense sometimes.

It was Lily's turn to blush. that was yet to recover from the last embarrassment. "We need cloths. She waved her wand and in one swift movement.thoughts. James yelped in surprise and Lily laughed. "You are blushing even below your face. . "James…" "All right." replied James cheekily. all right…" he said with a hint of sadness in his voice. "I didn't realise you wanted to see me shirtless so bad. his shirt was off. now that's something to see…" teased Lily. her face. It only lasted a second before it was replaced by a dangerous glint in her eyes." "James. "Why didn't you levitate it?" asked James in confusion after performing a cooling charm on her hands. So. Evans. James turned into an interesting shade of scarlet that spread over his chest. take off your shirt." said Lily indignantly. was burning even brighter red. She pushed his shirt into the hot water and hissed when her hands hit the water.

that is a very old shirt" said James in amazement. The incantation is immunis. now let's see what's written about these charms. blushing again.." "I know what my favourite flower is. "Wow. with two people cleaning it." She started reading it and James looked at her expectantly for a while before saying."I'm used to doing that the muggle way" Lily said. "The Washing Charm should wash the cloths in soap and vanish the stains. the Aroma Charm and the Ironing Charm. examining her hands "Never mind. Now. the Washing Charm. it should look new. the Aroma CharMs" She skimmed through the page and started reading. I need to know how to do it as well…" "Oh!" Lily said. The shirt. "There are three charms in the Laundry Charms section. Red sparks shot out of the ends of their wands." they both turned to look at the wand movements and tried the spell. And with a quick glance at the wand movement the shirt and . "Uh…I'm here too.. that was shabby and dirty. looked new." she read aloud. Lily giggled "Well." declared James. "The Aroma Charm is meant to give the cloths a smell according to the spell caster's favourite flower.

Tears were streaming down her face from laughing so hard . She looked up to meet James's smirk "James!" she yelped. started to tickle him. She looked and saw that her shirt was ironed. "Ironing Charm is meant to iron the cloths and dry them. To his satisfaction. To her disappointment he was not ticklish. First levitate the shirt from the hot water and say facere ferrum. James laughed out loud and Lily. She laughed and laughed. She faked a cough to hide her embarrassment. Suddenly. "Ironing Charm next. Lily was beet red for the millionth time that day and James smiled at her cheekily. as a revenge.everything around it began to smell oddly like Lilies." she said. she was ticklish. Miss Evans?" he asked mockingly." They both muttered the incantation. gasping for breath every now and then. He rose on his elbows and started to tickle her. Very ticklish. Lily felt her shirt became a little stiff and warm. "Trying to tickle me.

her eyes looked suspiciously moistened. barely touching the floor and his face was close to hers.God…. "James."S-Stop…Oh…. "J" Lily said softly "Will you just hold me?" she whispered. but before she could say something he spoke. We did the spell right. now was just not a good time to do it. "I don't know." she said reluctantly. "Ok. . Lily managed to breathe a couple of steady breaths before she realised that James was partly on her. she knew they had to talk about it sometime. "What do you mean?" asked James. Lily sighed. "What did we do wrong?" he asked quietly." she continued laughing until James fingers tired and he stopped." she whispered. She didn't like where his thoughts were heading. I know we did. James stroked Lily's cheek when he saw the unshed tears. It had to work." he said and kissed her forehead with an uncharacteristic gentleness. The prophesy probably ruined what we were trying to do there is no other explanation. He was lying on his stomach. as if afraid she might realise what they did wrong. I-I Don't want to talk about it. one hand across her stomach.

" she said with a quivering smile. "Why do you call me J?" he asked softly. "Huh?" said Lily and got her hold on his loosened to look at his face. he tried to figure out if she wanted it just as much as he did. and drew back. He kissed her softly. feeling Lily's warm breath on his face. putting her in his lap. "Are you?" he murmured." she said quietly "I don't know. Looking in her eyes. . hands encircling his neck. "Yeah…" she said just as quietly. "Why J?" asked James after a few minutes. looking at her outrageously close lips. as if afraid to break her. Their faces were extremely close and they yet to free the each other. smelling her hair and enjoying the feeling of her slim body against his. He closed his eyes and leaned on the sofa. James held her around her waist.James lifted an eyebrow on the name but lifted her with his hands and sat on the sofa. I guess I'm just lazy to call you by your full name. "Oh. her head on the crook of his neck.

not yes forgetting how awful he was to both himself and Harry. They all heard the venom in his voice but only Remus gave it a second thought. "Who?" asked Peter shortly. They threw curious looks but . Not yet He understood her will and although disappointed. "Snivellus. Not yet. "You know. "I say…" The next morning some of the Gryffindors noticed how giddy the marauders looked. "It has been a week since school started and we didn't prank even once!" he cried in mock disbelief. "My dear fellow marauders!" said Sirius loudly that evening in the dormitory. he knew that she was his. her chin resting on his head she stroked his hair.He saw longing and sadness and read the silent message she was trying to give him." said James venomously. "Ok. you're right. Lily sighed and held him close. so what do we do?" asked Peter. He nodded in understanding and lowered his head. It is his vengeance." said James.

but the prank didn't stop there. something that didn't go unnoticed by neither of the marauders or the Gryffindor table. started gasping for air as they laughed even harder. Snape rose from his seat and stood on the table. He opened his mouth and to the horror of the students. so pretty. Snape jumped off the table to stand in front of the teachers table and faced the students. she snorted very unladylike into her cereal. I feel pretty and witty and brrriiight!" The students that didn't recover from the sight of Snape. Snape started to sing: "I feel pretty. When Lily entered the hall. attracting all of the students' attention. praying into James's mind. The hall erupted into hysterics. She sat and started eating her cereal. what their prank would be. she knew he knew she knew. oh. looking like the hairy. greasy version of a twisted Barbie doll. catching James's eye. Even .the marauders eyes told them all you wait and see. When she found out. Suddenly. His black robes transfigured itself into a ping tight dress with white lace. she immediately noticed how tense and excited the boys looked. He gave her a tiny smile and she smiled back.

Lily wasn't sure if it was from trying to suppress her laugher or from anger. so charming…" at this point Snape started dancing what most people would call a sexy dance. oh. "Black! Lupin! Potter! Pettigrew! Into my office immediately!" she yelled while professor Flitwick tried unsuccessfully to transfigure the dress into school robes. .some of the Slytherins were laughing. "It's alarming how charming I feel! And so pretty that I hardly can believe I'm real!" Clapping could be heard as well as the hysteric laughter from all over the Great Hall when Snape bowed to the students and then the teachers. Snape was so red in his face. Lily thought he might explode. Sirius. James winked at her and blew her a kiss before shutting the Great Hall's doors. Lily turned a little pink but smiled a little nevertheless. it looked like a very bad and amateurish drag queen. but when Snape danced. She watched as James. Remus and Peter were leaded proudly outside of the Great Hall by professor McGonagall. "I feel charming. After a few seconds professor McGonagall's red face could be spotted.

." "It has been a week since the school started. and he did nothing wrong to you during this week. "May I remind you Potter that you are Head Boy? You should set an example for the younger students. "I am not sorry. or else our reputations would have been ruined. This sentence sounded rather odd to the rest of the marauders." he said determinedly." said James in the most serious tone he could master. We had to do something. it's been a week since we got to school and we didn't do a single prank yet." said Sirius cheekily."What was that?" growled professor McGonagall when the boys sat in front of her in her office. "May I ask. but answered her nevertheless." James lowered his head. but James has managed to get McGonagall to understand his motives. which is outrageously shocking." "Children pay for their fathers' sins" he said. why did you prank Mr Snape?" "Well. McGonagall's nostrils flared – never a good sign. "I believe it was a prank. "He deserved it.

she never drew this kind of reaction from him. "Mr Potter. "What did you mean back there 'children pay for their fathers' sine?" asked Sirius in awe. amazed." said a quiet voice behind them. "It was a very nice display of magic there. At James's horrified face he smiled "You are not in trouble". He sat on the chair next to her and tried to focus on the headmaster even though he kept sneaking glances at her. James relaxed and followed him. Dismissed. small butterflies fluttered in his stomach. "Never mind" said James. leaving three confused marauders behind. not wanting to discuss his adventure to the future with them yet. James was surprised. The boys' bodies stiffened when they recognised the headmaster's voice. They turned to him and relaxed when they saw his blue eyes twinkling merrily. He wasn't ready and he didn't want to ruin the fragile relationship he and Lily have."You have a week of detention. When James entered Dumbledore's office. . Remus' and Peter's astonishment." McGonagall declared to Sirius'. can you please accompany me to my office?" he said in his deep voice. separately.

as if reading his thoughts. "I would like you to come with us" he said and got up to bring the Pensive. shuffling them on the floor. "What was the last thing you did or said before you were transported back?" James lowered his gaze to his feet. "Mr Potter?" asked Dumbledore. Lily understood James's motives not to enter the Pensive and in fact. He was not one to admit his weaknesses in front of people. "No thank you professor. James shook his head. But before I let you ask the questions. she wasn't ready herself to see how she broke down. "I see…Maybe a Pensive would do the trick?" he asked gently. "No thank you professor" she echoed James's . James thought about it and nodded." said James. "I-I'd rather not talk about it sir."I called you here to let you ask questions you probably have about your little…adventure to the future. I want to ask you something." He peered over his half-moon glasses at them." "Join me Ms Evans?" Dumbledore asked politely. He wasn't ready to see himself crying in front of two Lilys and Dumbledore.

James was more than aware to his surroundings. Please extract your memory and into the Pensive. Phineas Nigellus snoozing in his frame. He looked and saw that Lily's hand was dangerously close to his. James let out an inaudible sigh of happiness. are you sure you don't want to come along?" As he saw the two teenagers shaking their heads. "Well. He took a deep breath and raised his fingers a little so they were slightly touching Lily's. He saw Dumbledore's phoenix. A silent pop jerked James and Lily's hands away from each . He put his hand into the Pensive and disappeared with a flash of light. Now. Suddenly. He didn't see the portrait of Dilys Derwent smiling so widely her face could have been split into two. with nothing to distract them. I daresay you already know how to use a Pensive. gazing at them with interest. she was intertwining the tips her fingers with his. that's right. "Perfectly understandable. he felt Lily's fingers moving a little as well. Mr Potter. he saw Sirius's greatgreat grandfather. An electric jolt shot up his arm from the spot Lily's fingers touched his. have fun than". He felt something warm near his palm. he smiled a bit. Fawkes.words silently. Now.

It was a very personal question. . it would seem that a strong emotion like anger caused a gap between two dimensions. the answer is fate." "What did your future self wrote to you in that letter?" blurted Lily before she could stop herself. Dumbledore was back and he seemed very pensive. As for your question. "Excellent question dear boy. combining the things my future self told me and what I saw right now. Now. "Well. one you may call the present and one you may call future. still feeling a bit breathless after the 'encounter' with Lily a few seconds ago. simply fate." "But why?" said James before Dumbledore had a chance to finish his explanation. After a few milliseconds though. "A lot of things. well. "Uh…How did we come back?" asked James.other's. "And it would seem that a strong emotion like sorrow mended that gap. shoot the questions!" he said cheerfully. he was back to his cheerful twinkling annoying self. that certainly cleared things up." said Dumbledore vaguely.

"Well. Dumbledore's eyes twinkled in amusement. You should be proud of yourself. Lily paled again and tears filled her eyes. "A Pensive again maybe?" they both shook their heads. knowing that this time they would have to go into the Pensive. "Very well. real proud. any other questions?" Dumbledore said gently. muggles and wizards from a horrible fate. along with thousands of other people. . "While we are on the matter. The wound was still to deep and raw. we made Harry die." "Yeah. James's father was killed by Death Eaters when James was 12 and it still hurt him a lot to think about it." mumbled the teenagers. "Very well."That was obvious." said James with a snort. "And that we will be able to save them." said James harshly before he could think. you might be happy to hear that I know the dates of your parents' deaths" both Lily and James paled." Dumbledore said gently. my future self was very interested what caused this. off you go". Both teenagers were quiet. "No sir.

"Who do you think is the sexiest boy in Hogwarts?" asked a brunette." called one of the sixth years "What do you say we play truth or dare?" The girls cheered. "Sirius Black. The game continued for about an hour and the seventh ." whispered Lily to James after they passed a group of whispering seventh years.Lily and James walked through the corridors in Hogwarts. James laughed silently. "Say. "Let them wonder." the girl said without faze. attracting many curious glances from the students. they are all wondering what are we doing walking together without yelling at each other. since when James Potter and Lily Evans are friendly with each other? "Look at them. It was about 10pm and the seventh and sixth years Gryffindor girls were wide awake in the empty common room. They were feeling very giggly to say at least. Someone summoned a bottle and turned it. It pointed on a blond sixth year named Mandy." he said and entered the Heads room.

years could not believe the bottle did not point at them even once. Amy blushed even harder. "I just can't stand it when he is so cocky. "So…Amy. "All right. but if he'll ask me out I don't know what I'll do." pointed out Jenny under Amy's glare. also noticing the bottle's strange behaviour. what is it about you and Sirius Black always fighting?" Amy shook her head "I don't know what's going on. "Look. he always says something that flares my temper. he is such a . "I don't know how true it is. Amy blushed." pointed one of the girls. "This is ridicules!" said Jenny at last "It's been an hour and the bottle did not stop on us even once!" "Maybe we'll just ask you questions and you can answer?" suggested Mandy." "He said he likes you. I don't know." agreed the seventh years." she said truthfully. He thinks he's so sexy and it's so annoying!" "He is sexy. he is very good looking but. I won't deny it.

The sixth year girls looked at her in shock and then burst out laughing." said the sixth year prefect named Liana." said the brunette." "Yeah. I don't know what happened to you on the Hogwarts Express. "What?" Lily said in confusion. "You don't now." "I do not hate him!" exclaimed Lily. shaking her head." agreed Lily.player. I noticed something was wrong on the prefect meeting. "No way!" "Way." "That he is. "But you did. . "What did I say?" "James Potter? Player? Are you blind Evans? He has his eyes only on you. "like James Potter." said Mandy a bit bitterly." said Amy with a frown." "What?" said Lily in disbelief. "He didn't date anyone for the last three years." She didn't really know what made her say that. she was getting along very good with James. One minute you hated him and after the prefect meeting you didn't. "You were too focused on hating him to notice.

James Potter yelled at Lily Evans! "Then the Head compartment started to spin and-" "Lily stop!" a yell was heard from the stairs to the boys' dormitories. if I tell you something do you promise not to tell anyone?" said Lily. Lily took a pillow in her hands. please don't tell them anymore. no one dared to move or giggle."I. when I got into the Heads compartment I…uh…yelled at him a bit more." the girls' expressions turned to shock.look. James stood with his arms crossed and his eyes glazing. "Do you remember on the Hogwarts Express when I yelled at him?" the girls nodded. "Well. "Lily." Some of the girls giggled "And then he yelled at me back. On the bottom of the stairs. eager for some gossip. "Why not?" snapped Lily suddenly annoyed with him for interrupting her spilling her heart out. "Because you can ruin everything we achieved by doing this!" he snapped back. Although he was in pyjamas. apparently still aware to the other ." James said almost pleadingly. The girls nodded and got closer to Lily.

"I'm so sorry-" ." he said softly." she said and faced him. She opened her mouth to say something to them but"Do it for Harry. And she started to apologise. "No-! Lily I won't let you do that!" SMACK Lily slapped James with anger but immediately her hand flew to her mouth. Lily's eyes glazed with anger and she stood up. She turned to the girls who were looking on the argument with open mouthed. and don't you dare mention him" James cringed when she called him Potter and the hurt was very obvious in his eyes. "You weren't the only one who lost him. "Shut up Potter.girls' presence. "What do you mean?" she asked suspiciously. James looked in her eyes trying to pass her a message." he said coldly. "Shut up. but she didn't want to see what he meant.

"I understand that you didn't want to share your feeling with me but you can't tell them where we went." Here he lowered his voice "One of them can be a Death Eater and you'll never know. "Look I'm sorry I slapped y-" "Forget it." he whispered urgently. I just can't believe I'm the fool again." he said. "James-" said Lily weakly. "Forget it Lily." said James's voice. Lily saw that he was sincere and sighed. shutting the door after him. "I'm used to it." he said in a strained voice." he turned and climbed the spiral staircases to the boys' dormitories. "I'm sorry" she said tearfully. not noticing the gasps from the girls. thinking for . But Lily wasn't about to let him go again. He was near his dormitory door when she put her hand on his shoulder and turned him. "I never meant to get out of control." he said and entered the dormitory as fast as he could."Never mind. Lily sat in front of his door a few more minutes. His eyes were full of hurt and a red mark of a hand was on his cheek." "But you did. She climbed the stairs after him.

James sighed with irritation and got up. She is closing the doors to me. Lily hurt him bad. put on his slippers and went downstairs. James was in his bed rubbing his eyes and sighing. YOU apologised said the voice. She sat in front of the fire and let a few tears slid down her smooth cheeks. She sighed sadly.the first time that she did not deserve a person like James. But she already slapped you and left your heart in pieces every time said the nasty voice in his mind. Then he saw her. But she kissed me and hugged me plenty of times. . for the second time so recently. But the slap meant more. he thought. He was too good for her. and he felt his heart constricting with pain every time her angry face surfaced in his mind. walked down the stairs. She apologised. The other voice didn't answer. He didn't know she knew how to slap so hard. and saw to her surprise that no one was there. she was sitting in Harry's favourite armchair near the fire and tears leaked from her eyes. I have to get her.

"I don't know" he said quietly. When Lily heard his voice she turned and jumped from the chair "James!" she called in a tearful voice. A burden carried for over a month had been released. "He and Ginny were so happy. "I don't know what I was thinking. this su-subject is so painful. What did we do wrong?" she sobbed. they could have been living together and have children and-" Lily gave such a large wail it broke James's heart. He swore in his heart never to make her cry again. He proposed to her. He . His shirt was soaked but he didn't care – she's finally letting it out. She ran to him and hugged him so fiercely she thought she could hear his heart beating rapidly. "Lily?" he whispered loud enough for her to hear. He hugged her back just as fiercely and she started sobbing.His heart started beating fast and painfully and in that moment he regretted the way he treated her earlier. Ever. He sat on the sofa and held her close. I can't believe we let him down.

felt as Lily's sobs subdued and after a few minutes. Lily still in his arms and she snuggled into his chest.You killed Jack Sparrow? I'm not a big fan of this movie. pleading in his mind to hold her like this forever. James looked at the girl in his arms and saw that she is sleeping. I really wanted to update so here it is. but even I wouldn't want to deal with angry Orlando Blum (spelling?) fans.. he fell asleep..-admires- . He hugged her close. I was at my grandmother's house from Friday and just got home. burying her face in his pyjamas. ONE MORE CHAPTER until my grand opening of chapter 19 (which no one saw.

"We did it without magic. "How did you manage to get it anyway? Why aren't you and Potter in our classes anymore?" inquired Jenny. She was getting upset that Hermione was able to do it in her fifth year and she." said Lily shortly. . attracting a nasty look from Madam Pince. starting to feel annoyed. "We worked hard over the summer. "I hate this!" Lily exclaimed loudly. couldn't.*Chapter 17*: Chapter 18: The Offer The Offer Lily." said Lily impatiently. frowning. "How?" pressed Jenny. a seventh year. "But we're not allowed to use magic during the holiday" said Amy with a confused look. Amy and Jenny were working on colouring charms and Lily was trying to make the Protein Charm work. Amy and Jenny were sitting in the library and each doing their Charms assignment. Any and Jenny looked up from their homework and gazed at her in amusement and wonder. due for another two days.

When they reached her. "We? As in you I Potter together?" said Amy disbelievingly. a slow flush was starting to cover her cheeks. so the other houses didn't know a thing about it. Amy and Jenny followed Lily hurriedly. many of Gryffindors noticed the "growing" friendship between Lily Evans and James Potter. Lily froze and after a few tense seconds she answered "I don't know". Amy and Jenny followed her to the common room and sat on the armchairs next to her when she spread her books on the table. how . Surprisingly. In the past few weeks. "Who's Ginny?" blurted Amy suddenly. she was giving the Fat Lady the password ("Codswallop"). they kept quiet. Her mind was racing. barely keeping up with her. she said tightly. oblivious to the curious looks from the other students. completely ignoring them. "MS EVANS!" said the furious voice of Madam Pince "Out!" Lily shut her books angrily and walked out of the library."We just did ok?" snapped Lily. "Yes! Potter and me alright!" yelled Lily in frustration.

" snapped Jenny. she practically ran out of the room. "Lily we have to do out patrolling now. when I think about it. Lily sighed with relief and gratefulness when James stopped the inquiry. you don't know how to. Sirius and Peter sat on the sofa and were looking at the girls in interest. we're almost late" said James's voice loudly behind the girls. "Lily! Stop lying!" said Amy angrily. He. narrowing her eyes at the closed portrait. Her brown hair was starting to fall from the neat ponytail she arranged to herself every morning. not meeting their eyes and feeling guilty. "Something happened on the train and she's not telling us." "You know. "Well. "I don't know who Ginny is" said Lily. James did start to behave oddly after the prefect meeting" said Sirius's voice. starting to get a little annoyed herself. dragging him with her. "What do you know about it?" asked Remus.could the possibly know about Ginny? "Don't lie Lily. "It has something to do with him" said Amy suspiciously." started Jenny "Do you remember the day we and the sixth year girls were playing truth or dare?" .

They fought and then James said something about 'do it for Harry' and she slapped him."No" chorused the boys. "Then we heard a door shutting and after a few minutes Lily came down and just cried" said Jenny sadly. "Anyway. Remus's mouth hung open and Peter's eyes were bugging out. "We were just about to come out from out hiding spot and ask her what happened when James came and just looked ." said Jenny. Amy rolled her eyes "Never mind." Amy said in a rush. "That's not funny Black! She really regretted it!" snapped Amy. cutting the story for the most important details. The boys burst out laughing "So that's why he had a red mark!" said Sirius "Evans slapped him!" the boys looked gleeful. "No way!" said Sirius with shock evident on his face. Lily was about to tell us what happened when James appeared from nowhere and yelled on her to stop. sensing another Black-Isadora fight is about to start "He went upstairs very hurt and she – she went up after him" she said and shook her head disbelievingly.

"I don't know how she heard him coming" continued Jenny. amazed "But all of a sudden they were hugging and Lily was sobbing like mad. they could have being married and have children'" said Amy in a bored voice. Realisation dawned on the boys' faces and the exchanged smirks. "What?" asked Jenny. He proposed to her.at her with this pained look on his face. She said something about letting someone down and some Ginny and her fiancé. she stopped crying after a while and they just fell asleep on the sofa together" she finished with a sigh. "We found them on the sofa that morning" said Sirius with an evil smirk." "I believe the right words were 'He and Ginny were so happy. "How do you remember that?" asked Sirius admiringly "I can't even remember the twelve uses for dragon's blood." Amy bit down a nasty remark. you know?" "Saw it plenty of times" said Remus. "Every time she rejected him" added Sirius. "I ran it in my head a couple of times." she Amy "Anyway. with a look of nothing-cansurprise-me-anymore. .

they tried.FLASHBACK Sirius woke up from a very good night sleep to the voice of the alarm clock. After the three boys were showered. "Where's Prongs?" asked Sirius groggily. He was smirking and . his expression became very. James's face was buried in Lily's flaming hair and Lily's head was buried in James's chest. they came down to the empty common room." "Maybe he's in breakfast. brushing his teeth "he wasn't here when I woke." said Peter sleepily. They were the first to wake – always a plus when they're doing a morning prank. James Potter and Lily Evans were lying asleep. Sirius had a very interesting look on his face – he looked like a shocked frozen doll. Hugged. to hide their surprised gasps. "I dunno" said Remus. shaved and dressed. unsuccessfully. very evil. When they saw what it was. ("Get up you old mutt") when he noticed that James's bed was empty. They saw red hair spread on the sofa and took a closer look. After a few seconds.

"Get the camera Wormtail" hissed Remus to Peter.Remus knew that Sirius will never let James live it down. FLASH FLASH FLASH Lily and James jumped a little from the noise and the sudden light and woke up very startled to find themselves in each other's arMs They let go quickly and turned to look at the smirking face of Sirius Black. Suddenly Lily sighed and snuggled closer to James . Sirius and Remus sniggered and Peter entered with the magical camera. Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. followed by the smirks of Moony. James groaned out loud and got up from the sofa. barely moving Lily before getting to the dormitory." said Peter in a quiet imitation of sir Cadogan. still trying to recover from the shock.if that was possible. END FLASHBACK "NO WAY!" "You've got pictures?" . "Right away good sir. Wormtail and Padfoot.

Jenny snatched the pictures away from Remus's hands and went to sit next to Amy to look at them."Bring it here!" Both Amy and Jenny were smirking too by now and were practically jumping from excitement. Sirius sighed "I am" "So go sweep her off her feet!" said Remus in quietly but enthusiastically. Meanwhile. the boys were having a silent conversation "Should I ask her to Hogsmede?" whispered Sirius. Amy squirmed a little under Sirius's intense gaze. "Padfoot. "But she'll say no! I'm sure she will. "Just do it Padfoot!" whispered Remus. "Are you su-" but Sirius didn't finish the sentence because . "Here it is" said Remus as he got back. Peter and Remus rolled their eyes. While Remus got the pictures from the dormitory." said Sirius sounding desperate. they did this conversation at lease six times in the past two days. this is getting ridiculous! Are you a Gryffindor or not?" asked Peter in a surprising show of intelligence.

What is he so nervous about? She was very puzzled. she probably would have refused.. she and Sirius weren't getting along so well and if it weren't for the fact that she liked him. "Yeah" said Sirius.Peter and Remus combined forces and pushed Sirius with all their might to the girls' direction. if you would go to Hogsmede with me?" he asked hopefully. Sirius coughed nervously and the girls turned to look at him. it's…it's true. a bright blush appearing on his face. . can you…would you talk to me for a second?" he stammered in an uncharacteristic show if nervousness. "Listen. "And I…I wondered. "Amy.. Amy. feeling faint all of a sudden. I…I do like you" he said without taking a breath "You do?" said Amy meekly. I know we never got along too well but I just… I…what I said that day in the Great Hall.walk?" "Uh…sure" said Amy in confusion. They walked along the third floor quietly when Sirius stopped and faced her. Amy exchanged curious looks with Jenny but nodded "Okay" "Can we.

his hair was a little dishevelled and he was wringing his hands nervously. "Go ask her. silly. "Of course she'll say yes. Sirius's eyes lit. . the Gryffindor common room "Think she'll say yes?" asked Peter when Sirius was out with Amy. Amy giggled at his expression: like a child in a candy store and a free bank account. "You won't regret it!" he said eagerly and kissed her on her cheek before running to the Gryffindor tower like a lunatic." "Whoo!" he howled and picked her up. looking at Jenny who was sitting and snuggling in front of the fire. "Yes. "Ok" she said quietly. "Really?" he said. holding her waist and spinning her in the air.Amy looked at Sirius. Remus looked at Peter startled. Amy burst out laughing and slapped his hands away from her waist." said Peter suddenly. Ten minutes earlier. waiting for an answer. looking at her. she likes him just as much as he likes her" said Remus.

" said Peter and with a split-of-a-second decision he pushed Remus so hard. fortunately. "Jenny would you like to go to Hogsmede with me?" he . "Hi" she said. He sat down next to her. heart beating rapidly. was stopped by the sofa." she said. Remus glared at Peter but his anger turned to nervousness when Jenny turned to look at him in wonder. Do you mind if I sit down?" he asked politely. Remus almost fell flat on his face but. they chatted and laughed for a while about school. James and Lily and Amy and Sirius before Remus was brave enough to ask her out. "Not at all. "What about you?" "I'll go with Prongs." said Peter although he knew"James would ask Lily" said Remus "And you know that she'll agree. "Hi. pointing at Jenny."What?" "Go ask her to Hogsmede. She seems like she'll agree to be his mistress if he'll ask her to." said Peter." "Yeah.

" "Are you sure?" he said hesitatingly . although he was shaking. "Would you stop being a prat?" she hissed. I'm sorry I bothered you" he said hurriedly and got up. "Pettigrew. I am sure. Before he could even move a step. "What do you want Snape?" he asked in cold politeness not lowering his wand. now sit down" she said and Remus sat down obediently while Jenny snuggled into his chest and looked at the fire. Jenny looked at him with disbelieving eyes "What?" "That's ok. Jenny jumped from the sofa and grabbed his arm. Peter turned fast. humming to himself." someone hissed from behind him. Peter smiled from the corner of the room and walked quietly out of the room to wander in the castle.a little trick James and Sirius taught him. his wand drown . James and Sirius were always there to protect him in situations . I thought someone must have asked you by now. "Of course I'll go with you.he never dated a girl before "Yes.blurted. He saw Snape hiding in the shadows.

You are not given the respect you should get. "Yes you fool.like that. My master can offer you power and respect beyond your wildest dreams You'll be successful. wondering what this is all about. "I'll give you in ten days Pettigrew. "I have an offer. "Your master? As in you-know-who?" squeaked Peter . a much better offer. hiding well the fact that he was struggling not to roll his eyes. "They are not. He didn't know what to . ten days" said Snape and turned with a swirl of his black robes. "You don't really think Potter and Black are your friends do you?" he asked with malice." hissed Snape with a glint in his eyes. Peter was shaking and sweating. fulfilling your wildest fantasies" said Snape silkily. his black eyes glittering in the darkness "Are you in?" "I-I don't know" mumbled Peter." hissed Snape. "What are you getting at?" said Peter angrily. "Of course they are my friends. have tones of girls swooning at your feet." stammered Peter.

was it Snivellus?" asked James with narrowed eyes. He felt jealous of them and occasionally felt powerless and useless when they were planning pranks. "Uh…" said Peter and looked at the floor. . Sirius's or even Remus's abilities and felt a bit stupid and left out. "We'll get back at him. "Are you sure? You look a little scared. not wanting to share what Snape told him just yet.do. you'll see. He often felt like he wasn't a match to James's." said James and swung his arm over Peter's shoulders. "Peter!" he saw James walking towards him "What's the matter?" "N-Nothing." said Peter in disgust and took James's arm away from him "Did you put deodorant in the morning? You stink!" he said. I just got a little cold" said Peter. "Urg. He came back to the Gryffindor common room still shaking. They were much more handsome than he was and often had girls keel over to their feet.

Peter blushed and started to protest but James cut him "I'm not taking no for an answer" he said. This is my chance thought James I could make him stay on our side. He started to enter the dormitory before stopping again and calling "And don't you dare run away Peter or I'll make you come into the shower with me so you won't escape" said James jokingly." he said with a huge smile. "What about you Wormy?" asked James "Got a girl?" Peter shook his head "No one would want to" he said bitterly.James laughed and got up the stairs to take a shower "Hey Prongs!" Peter called. His friends knew him too well. "She said yes. My friends. Peter froze in mid-action. Peter whooped with happiness for his friend. James turned "Did you ask Lily?" James's expression became eager and happy. "Rubbish!" said James "Be here in ten and we'll make every girl want you. . He just needs a girl." he said.

"Yes! Of course!" said James as if it was obvious. already knowing that once James is on to something. he's not going to let go. we get him into shape." said Remus. all laughter gone from his face. thinking it is all a big joke "What do we do to find Wormy a girl?" "First. waiting for Peter to come back from his shower. we have to solve the sweating problem he has" said Sirius jokingly. "We need to find Wormtail a girl. replaced by confusion. "Ok. "I'm not kidding you guys. second. will you brew the Anti-Pimples potion for him?" asked James cheerfully . "Thanks Moony. Remus and Sirius laughed." he said seriously." said James. "Ok…" said Remus "I guess I'll be helping with the charms?" he said. we make his pimples disappear and third."Why we are here Prongs?" said Sirius that evening. Padfoot. completely oblivious to his friends' laughing face "Who will get him to run around the castle?" "Are you serious Prongs? Are we actually gonna do that?" said Sirius. "Good idea!" said James enthusiastically.

" whined Peter but when his friends lifted their eyebrows he sighed. . He no longer had the awful red inflamed spots all over his face and he was grateful. He was lying in his bed. He saw their expressions of disgust with the smell and laughed. "Oh come on guys. the most embarrassing part of it. but it definitely gave him energies for the rest of the day. And so it begun. He wanted to dig a hole in the ground and hide there for the rest of his life. Peter didn't find the everyday running around the castle enjoyable." said Sirius in defeat. "Good! I'll get him into shape than!" said James enthusiastically. "All right" he said reluctantly. naked to the waist and his hands were above his head so that the marauders could perform the charm."Guess so. He was a little suspicious when Sirius handed him the potion but happy when it worked. It was the most humiliating thing he ever experienced in his whole life. However. was when Remus told him to take off his shirt so he could get rid of his sweating problem. I don't have a sweating problem.

The all laughed for a couple of minutes but then Remus did a silencing charm on James and Sirius so he was the only one to be able to talk." he said." huffed Sirius and Remus and Peter now laughed. "Now. smiling." he said "This will tingle a bit Wormtail so don't be panicked" unfortunately. After Remus indeed assured him it was over Remus took the silencing charms off James and Sirius who glared at him. Remus and James laughed. "What are you laughing at Moony? You stink after…after… damn. feet and palms "There!" Remus muttered in triumph. Peter did panic and Remus had to put him under a sleeping charm before performing the charm on his armpit. He took the sleeping charm off Peter who looked at him groggily and asked if it was over. "Hi Lily! Hi Amy!" said Remus suddenly. you never stink" said James in defeat. Sirius and James turned quickly but they immediately turned again glaring and growling at Remus "That was not . James and Sirius looked angry about being silenced."You don't smell better after Quidditch Padfoot. "What are you laughing at Prongs? The same applies to you.

I think that my one of my best friend is currently hiding behind your back and looking at your bum. trying not to laugh. Remus hid behind Lily who was watching with amusement as James and Sirius came near her. James punched Sirius in his arm and turned a little pink. Lily smiled and laughed as James turned redder and redder." said James in the same growling voice. running her around the common room while she . "You will pay. "I-" "This is not nice Moony. James gave her a sugary smile "Lily." Remus ditched his hiding point behind Lily to stand in front of James "I did not look at her bum!" he said indignantly.funny" Sirius growled. Remus's eyes widened and he ran for his life to the common room. "I didn't know you were interested Remus" said Lily casually. you know James fancies Lily and now you go and do him something like that…" Sirius said. dear. shaking his head. "What are you laughing at?" growled James and picked Lily up. James and Sirius hot on his heels.

and saw on the wall above the beds a crest. James sat near her." he said. It was a large 'M' surrounded with four animals: a dog. a rat and a wolf (Lily looked closely and saw it was actually a werewolf). Lily looked around the room. Lily long since stopped fighting and was now letting James carry her around looking on the corridor from her spot above James's head. sitting on one of the sofa and looking at the beds.punched his arm and yelling to him to let her down. James wasn't listening though. using their code. a stag. cushions and two queen size beds. "You slept together?" Lily asked. "We found this room in second year and made it the Marauders Headquarters. "Yep" he said. We plan all of out pranks here and when we were younger we used to sleep here as well. "Is that your symbol?" she asked James in awe. James was running her around in the corridors and through hidden doors. with four sofas. "Padfoot. Sirius opened the portrait's hole and James carried the laughing but shrieking Lily out of the common room. James carried her to a cosy looking room. leaning on the . call the Fat Lady" called James.

"We can go to this shop 'Glitter'. not exactly oblivious to James's nervousness. Lily noticed James was looking at her and blushed. watching in amusement as James paled a little. "What do you want to do in Hogsmede?" James gulped "I don't know. I still got pains from where Sirius kicked me during the night" he winced "Remus said Peter was drooling all over him and refused to sleep there after the first night" Lily laughed. The sound so beautiful to James's ears he just closed his eyes and tried to mesmerise the sound. "But we'll have to be apart for a while" she said. "Okay" said James." said Lily. James panicked "Do you have another date? I promise I . suddenly afraid she'll back off because they won't have anything to do. He opened his eyes and stared at her. "Uh…Sirius and I slept on the same bed as did Remus and Peter but after a while we saw that it was not at all comfortable. they have wonderful coffee. "So…" she said trying to start a conversation.sofa." he said.

" he . "Did you snog here too?" Lily asked innocently. James's cheeks burned. he could not believe he was stupid enough to believe Lily will have another date. I guess I could show you some hidden broom closets" he said. "Don't beat yourself over it" she said in a giggly voice and waved her hand dismissively after reading his thoughts. "So…What other things you have here? I bet there is more than just a couple of sofas and beds. "Well. You are the marauders after all…" James got the mischievous glint in his eyes again. Have you forgotten?" she said.won't be boring-" Lily giggled at his panic "Don't be silly James. I don't have another date. James pulled a disgusted face "URGG! Lily! That's just sick!" Lily laughed again "What do you have broom closets here anyway?" "So we can store some pranks supplies there. we have a ball in a few weeks. Lily laughed merrily.

you remember what happened last time. FLASH FLASH FLASH Lily jumped startled. She opened one of her eyes blearily and saw the Hogwarts crest. it was actually . thought his eyes betrayed his amusement. and so did her pillow. Lily groaned and buried her face deeper into his shoulder. keeping the bright blush on her cheeks from showing. She closed her eyes again. Very comfortable. FLASHBACK Lily was comfortable. She felt and arm tightening around her and quiet sniggers. She looked up to her pillow and saw it wasn't a pillow. She snuggled deeper into her very warm pillow and sighed.answered seriously. And warm." he said jokingly. "Like what?" "Wouldn't you like to know?" he said laughingly and put his arm around her shoulders and she leaned on his shoulder. "Just don't fall asleep Lil.

While she was showering. barely touching her and exiting the room. looking at her in confusion before both of them turned to look at the source of the noise and saw the smirking Sirius Black. . Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. But she still got this heavy feeling in her chest whenever she thought of his last moments. From their future. But she can't be his girlfriend yet. she thought about James. thinking about Harry. She wanted to be with him so badly it gave her butterflies in her stomach just to think of him as her boyfriend. She heard James groan and getting up. she could not get into full intimacy with James.James. She knew now what made her marry James in the past. He was sweet to wait for her to recover from this. followed by his teasing friends. She knew that until she solved what happened to Harry. his arms holding her. knowing the rest of the Gryffindors will be puzzled to see their Head Girl sleeping on the sofa. That was just the way she lived. She was much better now. or future or whatever. Lily groaned silently. She got up. most of her grief was already out thanks to James.

He didn't want this moment to end so he kissed her forehead and she closed her eyes. there was something weird in her eyes James couldn't identify it. James's breath hitched in his throat. And Lily looked up to his face. rubbing her shoulders. Right? END FLASHBACK "Are you okay Lil?" asked James. she did the most unexpected thing. hugging him "I'm fine" she mumbled against his chest "Just thinking of that day. She kissed his chest. Sighing." James laughed and Lily felt his chest rising and the deep gonging laugh echoing in his chest. How did he manage to make her fall in love with him? No. resting her hand on his chest and hugging him.How did the tables turn? She thought.

She put her hand on his cheek and he got closer to her face. He was so engrossed with the kiss he could not get a reasonable thought into his mind. James's mind was in swirl of colours and he felt almost dizzy as Lily got even closer to him. Kissing James seemed like a lost dream and she could not express in words how much she missed the feeling of his mouth over hers. Her hair smelt like melon and he felt her chest rising and falling. James stroked Lily's soft cheek and she looked him in the eyes. came back now in full force. Asking for permission. . James kissed her softly and she sighed against his mouth. Lily thought her heart would explode with happiness. To her heart. The butterflies he had in Dumbledore's office and thought were gone. He put his hand around her waist and pulled her to his lap so he'd have a better access to her mouth. responding. James wasn't thinking. Making their mouths crush together. It was their first real kiss since Harry.close as she could to him. he stopped inches from her mouth and she pulled him closer to her.

Lily also saw the hurt they were feeling – their best friend was keeping secrets from them. DON'T READ YOU CAN'T DEAL WITH IT. They had no interest in probing into her personal life. When they had the Hogsmede trip. IT IS ONLY SEXUAL TALK. . James asked Lily to be his girlfriend. NOT SEXUAL ACTIONS! Figuring It Out (Or – The Sex Issue) Christmas was drawing near and Lily wasn't speaking to Amy and Jenny. Lily answered him with an enthusiastic 'yes' before sharing a particularly long snog that left no doubt in the Hogwarts' population – James Potter and Lily Evans were an item. She knew they were angry with her. She thought it was none of their business who she knew or why she and James are suddenly 'friendly' with each other.

" said Sirius teasingly. he got up and went as fast as he can up the stairs to his dormitory. . I'm going to sleep ok?" James said quietly and without waiting for a reply. scribbling her homework on a long piece of parchment. Peter and Sirius laughed. she's yours mate. unaware of Lily. you are already her boyfriend." said Remus. "Listen. whom was sitting alone in the corner of the common room. "I think he'll be staring at her when he's old and grey and have twenty children with messy black hair and green eyes. "Did I say something wrong?" said Remus in complete confusion." said James to his fellow marauders one evening as he looked wistfully at Lily. James's smile vanished and he looked stonily at the floor. listening to them. snapping his fingers in front of James's face. James attention was immediately returned to the boys. her hand covering her mouth and tears brimming in her eyes. Lily stood in the corner. "Yo! Prongsy! Snap out of it mate!" said Sirius. "You know Prongs."Amazing how girls can fight for weeks after such small things. you can stop gawking at her. James only smiled and looked at his feet.

burying her head in his neck. "I'm so sick of it James. Instinctively. Sirius smacked his head. "Her dormitory is in the other side." said Sirius with a puzzled expression. It hasn't been two minuets and she felt familiar arms sneaking under her arms and knees." said Peter with confusion." he said quietly "Do you want to do it now?" Lily nodded against his chest and he rubbed her back with . Lily didn't wait for an invitation when she entered the boys' dormitories." she said in anguish after a few minutes. moments before she ran to the boys' dormitories. "All you said was that they'll have children with messy black hair and green eyes…" But in this moment. She opened the door. and closed the door behind her. lifting her. Lily's sob was heard and they turned to look at her horrified expression and the tears in her eyes. she wrapped her arms around James's neck. hitting his chest in her fist "I want to know why!" James wiped her tears with his thumb "I do too. entered. She slid down to the floor and started crying."No.

"Ready?" he said. "You do know he just used Harry's body. did you ever wonder about the prophecy Voldemort wanted so badly?" she asked. right?" the past Lily said "Of course. "Yeah I did but Harry didn't say anything. They saw the past Lily and Ron.if he can be defeated. My entire family work against him and…I don't know we don't even know. James took her hand with his and put them in the Pensive." said Ron. He saw the silvery liquid swirl and took a deep breath. after your fifth year.a sigh "Accio Pensive" he said. "Ron." he said with a . Their world shook for a minute and they found themselves on one of the corridors in Hogwarts. He saw Lily summon a quill and a piece of parchment before hesitating just a bit and nodding. Lily looked thoughtful. but I just don't see the point of fighting against him. Remus's Pensive zoomed towards them and James caught it with his excellent Chaser skills. He put his wand to her temple and took a deep breath before extracting a silvery strand from his wand and putting it in the Pensive.

"Anything wrong dears?" asked professor Trelawney in her usual misty voice "N-No…" mumbled Lily." she muttered "always so dense. It was rather funny seeing his shocked expression. "Boys." "Hey!" he said. Lily and Ron hurried to an empty classroom. "I resent that!" Suddenly. STAG AND A BABY WILL BE UNITED…" Ron and Lily turned. a harsh. How did she know about that? "Did you ever think why he wanted it so badly? Why could only Harry hold it?" she asked. WHEN FLOWER. THE STAG AND THE PROPHECY BABY WILL BE UNITED. She saw the premonition but was never prepared for something like that." he stammered. they were pale and Lily looked like she's going to collapse. "Wha-? No.

Lily nodded but otherwise stayed silent. "Of what?" he asked. "She made another true prophesy." James nudged her "Is everything all right?" Lily looked up to his face "I'm afraid." she admitted."What was that?" she demanded of Ron. the panic in his voice evident. "Lily! We are not murderers! We tried to defeat Voldemort and there are . rubbing her arm. "Trelawney." The words hit James like a slap in the place." he said. from knowing. still dumbfound." he explained. "Hey. The memory ended here and James and Lily found themselves on the boys' dormitories again. "Do you have it written down?" asked James." "Again?" "She did one before Harry was born and one the night Pettigrew ran away from us. We are murderers James. "From figuring out the truth. that we didn't do something good enough. We killed him.

Peter and Remus were all in beds. Lily was so absorbed in the piece of parchment in her hand she didn't even notice James was sleeping next to her and that Sirius. Lily giggled quietly and pushed a bit of black hair that fell on his forehead. forgetting about her abilities. We came back so we can fix this mess Lily." James smiled in triumph. we led him to his death!" cried Lily. and neither are we. as if challenging her to agree with him." Lily sniffed "You're right. "We have to think about it. She looked next to her." she said. finally. Lily was silent. She was startled from her semi-conscious state by a particularly loud snort from James. She jumped and rubbed her eyes sleepily. Lily hit his arm and James winced.casualties in a war!" "We did something wrong. Looking around her. where James was snoring peacefully. She probed a little into his mind and what she . "Ginny is not a murderer. "Is Ginny a murderer too than?" he asked quietly. she was shocked to see that it was almost midnight.

It all made sense. growing crimson again. Of course. Things like that are meant only for people who loved each other. love. Lily grimaced in disgust." she hissed. And they didn't love him the same way they would have if they were his parents. She was beat red and growing even redder in each passing moment. She shook James awake. And suddenly it was as though someone put on a light bulb in her brain. "What?" he asked thickly. wiping a bit of drool from his cheek. She couldn't believe James thought about doing that with her. "James!" she hissed "James!" James mumbled something about knickers and Lily. "Wha?" said James blearily "Lil?" "Yes that's me James you idiot. . Harry didn't love James and her like he would have if they were his parents.saw him dreaming made her let out a little gasp and push away from his mind as quickly as possible. slapped him quietly.

" he said simply "Say it again." James's eyes widened and he gaped at her like a goldfish."I found it!" she said "The reason why Harry died!" James was immediately awake. his cheeks burning in an amazing shade of scarlet. as if waiting for an explosion. "You were mumbling something in your sleep. "What?" asked James in amusement. "We didn't love him." she said between clenched teeth "That you were mumbling something in your sleep. yawning. unfortunately not awake enough to notice one of his friends awake." "I said. "What is it? Why?" he said. looking at her in fear. Lily. turned red. "How did you figure it out?" he asked." she muttered. "I…mumbled?" he stuttered "I…I…Lily…" he said. with the power of love!" said Lily eagerly. "Can't hear you. whom expected a little bit more enthusiastic response. and he didn't love us! The prophesy mentions love. James smiled at her and scratched his head. . so quietly he didn't hear her.

"Lily. As soon as the words left his mouth. not knowing how to feel. yet she was amused. She crossed her arms. "Yes?" said Lily. just the thought of James's face when she told him he ." she said in an icy voice. lying on the bed. "And…" said Lily in the same calm. shutting the door after her. her eyes flashing. that's not what I-" Lily chose this moment to get up from his bed and walk briskly out of the room. Lily was in her dormitory.. as if waiting for an explanation. in a dangerous voice that made James wince again. it was the best explanation he could come up with.Lily turned even redder if that was possible.. She was very embarrassed. "Uh…" he started thickly. "Shit!" said James loudly and punched his pillow in anger. James looked very embarrassed. he knew it was the wrong thing to say. "And…and I have my needs!" he continued in confidence. "Lily…uh…you see…I. "I see. Very wrong.uh…I am a normal seventeen years old boy!" he said quickly. dangerous voice.

mumbled almost cased her to giggle. Why must it be so difficult? She loves James and he loves her. The voice laughed hysterically "yes you are you are afraid of losing your virginity at 17. A single tear left her eye and fell on her knee. She always thought of losing her virginity after marriage. Almost. "I am not afraid!" she muttered loudly. But if James will demand it now… She hugged her knees and buried her head in between them. What you really feel is fear said a voice in her head. Lily jumped from the sudden noise and then scowled. that's me. Yes. "Yep. but she . nervousness. it was the nasty voice in her head. which appeared out of nowhere when she was there. And you are afraid. She knew that voice. She knew of course." Lily was surprisingly quiet after that. that seventeen years old boy (and girls she reminded herself with pink cheeks) do tend to feel sexually frustrated. She was nervous. that was the feeling." Lily scowled again. She didn't want to lose James because she wanted to be a virgin until her marriage.

Not to mention it would hurt. If she is going to end it. But then a new thought popped into her mind. Oh. she knew. Lily wiped her tears angrily. when. She looked at her watch and smacked her forehead. she probably wasn't the right match for him. it would be stupid to continue their relationship. Lily rubbed her eyes when they started prickling again and walked down to the common room in determination. But Lily was a bit puzzled when no one was in the common room. she is going to do it proudly. It was two o'clock in the morning. If he wanted someone he could shag whenever he wants. how much it hurt.didn't want to ruin it because of this.and poor James when it . she was going to lose all of her determination and replace it with hot bubbling anger that will wash out of her in rivers . James must be snoring again and she would have to wait with it until the morning. if James couldn't deal with the fact that she wanted to stay a virgin. Lily stood up determinedly. why can't James accept her for what she is? It is the girl's decision whether or not to lose what is hers since birth. It wasn't his choice. and no man should decide it for her. the determination slipping off her quickly and exhaustion taking over.

"Someone woke up in a peachy mood this morning. only to hear Remus's laughter ringing around the room "Problems in paradise?" Remus asked knowingly. She watched the fire as it demised. ha. filling the room in almost suffocating darkness. The effect of the warmness from the dead fire and the darkness did it effect on Lily. "What did you do this time?" asked Remus knowingly." said James rudely. and she fell asleep. Lily sat on one of the sofas and sighed heavily. though the corner of his lip was tugging upwards. it took him several minutes to remember why he is feeling so angry and miserable. "Problems in paradise?" said Remus." grumbled James as he got up. "You can say that again. Covering his eyes with his fists he let out a stream of courses that would've made his mother have a heart-attack. "Ha." teased Remus. "Shut up Moony. When he did remember.happens. he punched his pillow again. who just got out of the shower. When James woke up the next morning." said James sarcastically. .

James was shocked. her hair was messy and her eyes were red-rimmed and bloodshot and all of her makeup was smeared on her face. "Lily-" stated James in desperation. she thought he wanted her to lose her virginity to him? "Lily-" "No James. She didn't look so good. pushing her hair out of her eyes. it's over. I'm going to talk to her ok?" James said. "No James. she can't do that to him. scratching his head. He was an idiot last night and he knew it. I'm not going to lose my virginity at seventeen. James was very disgruntled by the time he reached the common room. James turned." Lily's voice said behind him. Listen. I'm serious. he didn't even notice he went past her. Lily must have gotten the wrong impression and won't be talking to him for weeks." she said determinedly." "But Lily-" ."Urggg…nothing. He groaned out loud. "I want to end this relationship.

" Lily said with as must strength she could master.Lily didn't want to hear his apologies or his pleading." "But I have things I want to say to you!" said James in indignation. "No. Lily was his. chasing after Lily and saw her red hair flying as she went down the stairs. But James was not about to give up that easily without a fight. which wasn't much since she was hurting so bad. he was not going to lose her because she thought he wanted to take her virginity away. "Lily. not rape her. please listen to me!" "No James. why must she be so stubborn? He just wanted to talk to her. "Lily!" Lily whirled around and looked at him with flashing eyes. "Lily. "Lily!" he called after her. so she left the common room as fast as she could." she said coldly "I have nothing to say to you. He ran out of the common room." said James weakly "Can we please talk about it?" he begged. . we have nothing to say to each other.

reading his thoughts "Fine." she muttered." "Here?" said James with a look around. James frowned. trying to remember his dream."Fine." said Lily. I can…take care of it… alone…" James blushed furiously at the thought and saw Lily was also bright red. "Before I woke you up I…I looked at what you dreamt…" she muttered. When he . I don't want to push you to doing that until you want. I know what I said last night was wrong. James was hurt and he cleared his throat before speaking. "Don't touch me. James however came and stood in front of her. Lily turned angrily and continued her flight down the stairs. Of course I have my needs but…well…in the mean time I…. Lily stopped again and didn't turn. He made to grab her shoulders but she pushed them away. "No wait! Fine! I'll say it here!" James yelled as he saw her going away. but I don't want you to get the wrong impression. "Lily. you can talk. He hardly thought that Lily's virginity should be public knowledge.

She knew James cared for her and would never do something to hurt her. Lily tried to struggle against his strong arms but couldn't. I can't control my dreams!" he exclaimed. so why did she act that way? It's only natural for you to panic drawled the voice in her head. James let out a breath he didn't know he was holding and put his arms around her in relief. suddenly very tired "Don't you know me enough to realise I would never do something like that to you?" Lily stopped struggling and felt very guilty. yet…"But you thought about it nonetheless James Potter!" she said angrily and poked his chest. "How do I know you're not lying?" she said to him. Lily sighed and buried her face in James's robes. James grabbed her poking hand and pulled her closer to him. "I have no intention of doing what you don't want me to do!" he growled. "Lily. "Don't you trust me?" he asked weakly. .did his eyes widened and Lily's reaction seemed perfectly natural to him. Lily knew that of course.

"Hem. "We have class in less than three minutes and you weren't . James and Lily broke apart and Lily glared at Sirius. he turned to Lily. Without a warning. "What?" said Lily when she saw James was looking at her. James looked around and saw that they did make a tiny traffic jam and that the students were looking at them in wonder. annoyed from being interrupted. and saw Amy and Jenny smirking. The kiss was so intense Lily's air supplies were running out quickly. James and Lily came down the stairs. hem" someone cleared their throat behind them and Lily and James broke away from each other. Suddenly James pulled Lily into an empty classroom. Closing the door behind him. still breathing heavy. The turned."Hey! Move it lovebirds! Some people need to eat in order to function during the day!" yelled Sirius's voice. hand in hand. "Yes?" asked Lily testily. James stated kissing her. James held her close and poured all of his frustration and relief into her.

Amy and Jenny immediately let her go and Lily sighed with relief." Lily's annoyance disappeared. . "Let her go will you? She can't breath." James shook his head in amazement. "Amy! Can't – breath!" wheezed Lily. "Thanks for letting me know. "Amazing how long it takes girls to make up. They started kissing again and Amy cleared her throat again." said Jenny.at breakfast." she said softly "You're forgiven. "May I return to kissing my boyfriend?" she asked them." Amy and Jenny came over and hugged Lily tightly." said Amy and dragged Jenny out of the classroom." said James in amusement. "What?" snapped Lily loudly 'Now what?" Jenny and Amy looked amused but serious "We also wanted to say…that we're sorry…it's none of our business. "Fine." snapped Lily and turned back to James. "Snog away.

Sirius and Amy didn't stop though and Lily giggled." said Lily haughtily and James allowed himself a smirk before attacking her."Shut up and kiss me. Sirius hit the floor with a 'thud' and Amy had a funny expression on her face. looking disgusted cleared his throat loudly. Sirius shoved James and sat on the sofa. very close to Amy. "Glad you could join us lovebirds. she will force Amy to tell her later." teased James. completely forgetting about the homework that were waiting for them in the Heads common room. frustrated from the lack of response. James. Much later that day James and Lily came back to the common room with their lips swollen and goofy grins on their faces. James. walked to where Amy and Sirius were snogging and pushed Sirius from on top of Amy. . "Is there something you want to tell us?" said Lily in a voice that suggested that if they won't tell them. To their amazement they saw Amy and Sirius snogging their hearts out on the sofa.

I'm staying here too. putting a hand on his heart. Amy rolled her eyes "Cut the mushy stuff Lily. followed by Remus and Peter." "So am I. James and Lily sat on one of the sofas. "I agree." said Remus. "Prongs! Come on! That means I'll have to stay here too! Don't do that to me!" said Sirius. it's our last. looking at Lily. James grinned. may I present you my dear girlfriend.Amy looked at Sirius. "Prongs and future Mrs Prongs. pity to waste it. "They stopped? Finally!" said Jenny from the portrait hole and went in. Amy Isadora. "So what are you doing for Christmas?" asked Jenny happily after settling herself on the sofa. "Congratulations!" she squealed and after releasing Amy gave Sirius a peck on his cheek." she said and looked at James. ." said James. "I think I'm staying here this Christmas." James goggled at them and Lily launched herself onto Amy. or more like. Lily sat on James's lap on one of the sofas." said Lily "I'll stay here too.

the walked silently towards the marauders room." Peter nodded and smiled a little. and especially under James and Lily's intense gazes. that heard her gasp. "I'm…I'm going home. ." said Peter."As I." "At eleven?" said Remus with a raised eyebrow. "Oh." said Jenny. James. "Mr Potter." said Remus in understanding "Tell her we wish her the best. Loud protest came out from the rest of the gang "I have to visit my mother! She's sick!" he defended himself. James didn't answer and took Lily in his arms before coming out of the portrait hole. What she saw there made her gasp silently. it is very late…" But James and Lily didn't hear the rest of the Fat Lady reprimanding. Lily couldn't resist and snooped into Peter's mind. suddenly said "We are going to patrol. James and Lily shared a long look. Everybody looked at Peter that squirmed under the stares of the rest of the guys.

Sighing. rubbing her arms. he rubbed his eyes. "Are you sure?" asked James." "Ok. but after Christmas we're going to Dumbledore. can be very important to him and Voldemort. Lily looked up to him in anguish and James nodded in understanding." said Lily." "James. "No!" said James immediately "Don't tell anyone. Things that may seem not important to you."He did it. we have a ball tomorrow and Christmas is in two days. he can pass any kind of information." The next morning." said Lily with tears in her eyes. we'll just have to see what kind of information he wants to pass. the female population of Hogwarts was very jittery and excited. Groups of giggling girls were everywhere and the male population of Hogwarts seemed . but Lily…just…just let it go for a week. please. "Yes. "Now what? Are we supposed to tell professor Dumbledore?" asked Lily. Lily sighed "Fine. please just let it go for now…" pleaded James.

making her smile lazily. making many heads turn." whispered James in her ear. The girls were primping up for hours now and the boys stayed in their dormitories." "Anything for my lady. she wore a white dress that looked very much like the dress Ginny wore at the Christmas ball. a sweet Hufflepuff fifth year. . Lily. Lily looked especially good. Lily smiled brightly and giggled "Lead the way good sir. They walked along corridors." James said dramatically though his eyes were sparkling. "Shall we?" said James and offered Lily his arm. When evening came. the corridors were empty. soothing their nerves and taking big calming breaths. "Lucky you don't look too much like Ginny. laughed loudly and pulled pranks on boys that looked too nervous.frustrated and nervous. making the boys whoop and cat call after him. Peter went to collect his date. I like my Lily best. The only boys that looked as boisterous as ever were the marauders. looked gorgeous in their dresses. Amy and Jenny all came down at once.

a badger and an eagle. at which point she blushed and hit his arm playfully. Remus. The gang's breath was taken away when they entered the Great Hall. "Moving. . moving. Jenny. Peter. "Stop being so damn clichéd James." she hissed but James could detect a hint of embarrassment and flattery in her voice. according to the house colours and in the end of each table there was an iced statue that didn't melt. It took her a moment to notice."Move it you two. that didn't look like the Great Hall at all. The statue on the Gryffindor side was a large lion. Amy. "Just telling the truth." said Lily and came out. Lily saw that the other statues were a snake. "It is. staring at Lily." James said. and his date Rachel were sitting and talking." said Jenny and poked James on his shoulder. Lily rolled her eyes and let him lead the way to the table. "It's beautiful" she breathed. where Sirius. The tables were covered with maps." James shrugged and led her to the table.

James stood and offered Lily his hand "Want to dance?" he asked with the most innocent smile he could master. making a small talk about pranks and new Zonko's products. 'Butterbeer' was a very popular band."Hi guys!" called Amy. Please welcome 'Butterbeer'!" the students stood up and cheered. The members of the band often wore black suits that during the show transfigured themselves into torn cloths. grinning. that this is time to open the dance floor." said Remus and offered Jenny his hand. who smiled merrily. "May I have your attention?" called Dumbledore from his seat. "Welcome students and teachers. Sirius shook his head in amazement "He is totally whipped. The noise dimmed after a few seconds and now all the heads were turned to Dumbledore. to the 1977 Yule Ball!" Dumbledore boomed and the students cheered. Lily laughed and took his hand. letting him lead her to the dance floor. The girls started chatting absently and the boys mainly ate. "Hi. . "I think." "He always was." said Lily and sat next to her.

" said Sirius cockily. I'll be back in a few minutes ok?" said Peter to his date. He stood up and slipped away unnoticed from the Great Hall. "No need. you'll help . "What have you got to report?" asked Snape behind him. Snape smiled. who thought she was joking and now saw that she wasn't." he said with a slight quiver to his voice. though Peter didn't see it."And he always will. Amy huffed and got up. making Amy roll her eyes and take his hand to the dance floor. The girl looked at Peter in disgust and got up. "Listen. stood up and coughed nervously. "Do it yourself. I'm going. Peter flinched and kept walking "They are not coming back home for Christmas." added Jenny with a laugh as she accepted Remus's invitation. Sirius. "Good. "Would you like to dance?" he asked. "Are you going to invite me to dance or I'm going to have to do it myself?" drawled Amy as she chewed a strawberry." Peter sighed as he watched her walking away huffily.

Lily crept silently into the boys' dormitories and smiled as she saw James snoring peacefully..us than. I just wrote an email to about 70 people and pressed send so I had to send this chapter quickly. but Snape wasn't there anymore.My Yahoo!Group is open to . he didn't think they will notice his absence anyway. sighing in content as James wrapped his arms around her." A/N: Rather hasty in the end right? Sorry. She tugged the blanket away from James and slipped inside the bed. Peter drew a ragged breath and walked back to the dormitory. "Mr Potter? Ms Potter?" someone called and James heard them gasp. "Ms Evans? What are you doing here?" Lily lifted her head groggily and saw professor McGonagall's shocked face." "Help you do what?" Peter turned... snuggled inside his blanket. Mr Potter…both of your parents died this evening in Death Eater's attack.not making a lot of sense am I? Nevermind. "I came to notify…well…since you're both here…Mr Evans.

She was torn – should she grieve on her parents or should she be a support for James. hold him when he cried. When he saw Lily his expression softened somewhat and he held his hand out so she could grab it. "Let's go the Room of Requirements. They walked to the Room of Requirements hand in hand.*Chapter 19*: Chapter 20: Surprise Wedding Surprise Marriage The two hours that followed professor McGonagall's announcement were hard on James and Lily." he said gruffly. Lily took his hand and he pulled her close. we can have more privacy there. They both breathed shallowly and Lily had a hard time controlling her tears. Lily was waiting for James outside of professor Dumbledore's office. He he had been in there for 15 minutes already. . They were both asked to go and talk with professor Dumbledore so he could explain to them the circumstances of their parents' death. James suddenly opened the door and strode out of there angrily.

They reached the Room of Requirements and lay down on the comfortable sofa in front of the fire. "I love you. finding comfort and love in each other's embrace. James had his arm around Lily's waist and they were snuggling into each other. ever since I was a little girl and did accidental magic. they told me it was ok.Lily was pressed to James's side and there was a comfortable silence of grieving." said James and pressed her even closer. her eyes glittering with unshed tears." Lily said softly. and that I'm not a freak like my sister told me I was. When I got my letter to Hogwarts-" Lily hiccupped "When I got my letter to Hogwarts my parents were so happy for me and said that this is the proof that I'm not a freak and that this is the explanation to all of the weird things that happened to me." whispered Lily and a few tears rolled down her tears. she gave me advice on boys…" Lily smiled warily "Told me that if I will give you a chance that I will see who you really are…" James squeezed Lily and wiped the tears off her cheeks. "I miss them so much. My mom was always so supportive in me. . putting his chin on her head. "They were always supporting me. "I love you too.

After that…we barely saw her. James's eyes blazed with pain "I had a sister."Tell me about your parents. "Anyway." breathed Lily and hugged him "I am so sorry. "My parents and I." James swallowed "It was a long time ago. She…. my family wasn't the same after she died.we had a good relationship before I went to Hogwarts. My parents drowned themselves in work and fired the nanny. When I was 13 my father took her to work one day and there was an attack on the Auror headquarters. cooking us meals and playing with us. James took a deep breath and knew that Lily won't let him get away without an answer.she was kidnapped and killed the same day." "Oh James. But when we went to Hogwarts she returned to her old job – an Auror. swallowing his tears. looking at James." James tightened his grip around Lily "I don't know what I'd ." he said. My mom was always home." Lily asked. My dad wasn't home as it is but my sister and I were left with a nanny-" "I didn't know you have a sister." said Lily.

please Lily.do without Sirius. please…" she said after . pondering." "W-What? James. "Let's talk about it after the funeral." Lily sat there is silence." said Lily. I love you. we are only seventeen!" "I know. but Lily." James said suddenly and looked into Lily's shocked eyes "Marry me Lily. "I don't have a ring yet-" he started but Lily silenced him with a kiss. "I will marry you James. Peter and Remus." she said quietly and James smiled his first real smile for hours. looking down "I can't lose you too…" "You will never lose me James. They were all I had after my sister died. tears streaming down her cheeks." Lily stroked James's hair and James caught her palm and kissed it "You're my life. think about it…it doesn't have to be now. She saw in James's mind that he is very serious and that he needs her. "Marry me. please…I can't live my life without you and we are already of age. She wanted it very much." he whispered.

they broke the kiss. James's eyes dimmed a little and he nodded "Dumbledore gave us the entire week off right? We go to our houses?" "Yes," said Lily, thinking about her room in Privet Drive. James kissed her cheek "We better go and pack some bags," he said, with his lips on Lily's cheek. Lily smiled a little and turned her head so she was kissing her properly. The marauders were a little surprised by James's reaction to his parents' death. He was a lot quieter than before, and that was understandable, but he didn't look especially sad or depressed. Sirius, who was very fond of Mr and Mrs Potter, who had become somewhat like surrogate parents to him in the last couple of years, looked extremely sad and upset. Dumbledore didn't allow him to go to the funeral and he was livid about it. Sirius looked up as the portrait hole opened and saw professor McGonagall. "Where are Potter and Evans Mr Black?" she asked. "Packing," said Sirius, staring at the fire. "Tell them to go to professor Dumbledore's office when

their finished, they can go home from there." "Yes, Professor," said Sirius, still staring at the fames. McGonagall shot him a pitying look and left the common room with a deep sigh. Lily was the first to come down, her eyes were red-rimmed but she looked presentable and tidy. She was holding two big bags and came to sit next to Sirius. "Is James down yet?" she asked him. Sirius shook his head and Lily probed into his mind. Tears pooled her eyes at the sadness and the horrible aching in his heart. He wanted to be there. Lily hugged the surprised Sirius and he hugged her with equal fierceness as a few tears left his eyes. "They were like parents to me," he said "But Dumbledore won't let me go there." "I am so sorry Sirius," Lily whispered and saw James coming down the stairs. She broke the embrace and Sirius looked up to see James standing there. Without another word Sirius stood up and hugged James like a brother.

Lily saw that James was struggling to cry and lifted her bags. She couldn't be here anymore. As James saw her getting up, he broke the embrace and picked his bags from the floor. "I'm sorry you can't be there mate," he said and smiled a weak smile. "I'm sorry I can't be there for you," said Sirius gruffly. "Coming, Lily?" James asked. Lily nodded and they went silently to Dumbledore's office. "We should meet sometime during the week," James said, looking at Lily from the corner of his eye. "I'll come to your parents' funeral and you'll come to mine right?" said Lily. "Of course, but I'll come earlier, I don't have anything to do in that house, I'm alone," he said without a trace of sadness. "Dumbledore won't let you," said Lily. "We can't do it without Dumbledore knowing," James said and smiled a little "You forgot you are talking to a marauder." Lily rolled her eyes "Well, what's your plan your highness?"

James grinned "Well, you'll Floo home first and I'll just remember the address and after I get to my parents' house, I'll Floo to your house." "You do that," said Lily. She was secretly pleased that she wouldn't be alone with Petunia for the entire week. "Sugar quill," said James. Lily was startled out of her thoughts by James's voice. They entered Dumbledore's office and knocked on the door. "Come in," said Dumbledore's voice from the office. Lily and James entered the office and stood silently. "You can go first Ms Evans," said Dumbledore and handed her a bad with Floo powder. Lily took some powder into her hand and threw it into the fire. The fire immediately turned green and Lily stepped into her. She looked into James's eyes and said clearly "Number 4, Privet Drive Surrey." James watched her disappear before taking some powder and saying clearly "Potter Estate, Cheshire." James landed on the floor and hastily got up. Looking around he saw that the house was clean, but horribly empty.

James heard a little 'pop' behind him and turned. He saw the family house-elf Dilly standing with a towel in her hands, her eyes looking red. "Master James," she said weakly "You are home." "Yes I am Dilly. Can you do me a favour?" he asked the elf. "Of course Master James. What is it that you need of Dilly?" squeaked Dilly. "I need you to clean the house in Godric's Hollow. I'll be moving there soon with my fiancée." "Master James has a fiancée?" said Dilly and her face seemed to brighten. "Yes, Dilly. And we will be moving there by the end of the year, maybe even earlier. So I need you to clean it and prepare it for us, all right?" "Of course Master James. What about this house?" James's face darkened "This is my parents' house. And since my parents are dead, I don't want to live here anymore. I'll be living in Godric's Hollow." "Whatever Master James says," said Dilly and bowed. "Can you move all my things there too? To the Master

bedroom?" "Yes, Master James." "Ok, I'll be going now, ok Dilly?" "Ok Master James," said Dilly and disappeared with a small 'pop'. James sighed and looked around before tossing some Floo powder into the fire and yelling "Number 4, Privet Drive Surrey!" James landed in the heap on the floor and heard Lily giggle. "Gracious aren't you?" she said and helped him to his feet "What took you so long?" "I was telling my house-elf to prepare the house in Godric's Hollow, so I can move there after school is finished." "Umm…" said Lily "Would you like to meet my sister?" James wrinkled his nose in distaste and Lily laughed, "I know what you mean. I wanted to rip her head off for what she did to Harry." James didn't even think about it, but he would never tell Lily that.

"Lead the way." "Petunia!" Lily called "Petunia, we've got a guest!" "Coming!" James heard a distant yell. Petunia walked down the stairs with a plastered smile. When she saw James, her fake smile slipped off her face and was replaced with a sneer. "You are one of those freaks aren't you? What are you doing here?" she said rudely. "Actually, he is here on my invitation. Petunia, I want to introduce you to my fiancé, James Potter." Petunia's sneer faltered for a second but was immediately back "People like you are allowed to reproduce?" Lily turned beet red, but not because she was angry. She really didn't want to think about reproducing. "That's not very nice of you," said James coolly. "We are just like everyone else, we are just magical." Petunia flinched as if beaten "Don't mention that freakiness in here again do you hear me?" she hissed, looking around, as if afraid that someone may hear him. "Forget about it James," said Lily and took James's arm

"We're going to my room." Petunia didn't answer and James was dragged into Lily's room. His first thought when he entered the room was: 'this is Lily'. The room was a perfect reflection of Lily's personality. Her walls were painted in soft yellow colour and her furniture was all made of wood. A long mirror was on the wall between her bed and her closet and on the nightstand there was a picture of Lily with whom James assumed were her parents. Lily entered the room and sat on the bed. She took the photo off the nightstand just as James sat next to her on her bed. "My parents," she said softly, stroking their faces "It was taken a year ago in Christmas." After a few seconds of silence James noticed that Lily's shoulders are shaking. "Lily-" he said and turned her to him. Her head was bent and tears ran down her cheeks. James pulled her on his lap and Lily put her head on his chest as she sobbed. She clutched the picture close to her heart. "They won't see us getting married," she sobbed, "I don't want to do it without them."

"Lily, they will always be with you," said James softly, stroking her head. "That's so cliché James," muttered Lily, but a small grin graced her face. James kissed Lily's cheek. "Don't you have things to organise to the funeral?" he asked softly in her ear. Lily shook her head sadly "Petunia had it all organised already. She doesn't want me to interfere with the funeral; she thinks it's my entire fault that they died." "That's not true!" yelped James with a shocked expression. "She's right you know, if wasn't a witch, the Death Eaters wouldn't have killed them." "Lily, if it wasn't for you, I would be a very lonely womanizer right now," said James in order to make her feel a little better. Lily giggled. "If it wasn't for me, you would still be an arrogant, egoistical prat," she said in affection and patted his cheek. "I'm wounded," said James and grabbed his chest "Me? Arrogant? What gave you that idea? I am just a talented, smart, good looking guy."

Lily laughed, "You are my talented, smart, good looking guy." "Indeed," mumbled James inches from her lips. "Break it off, freaks," said Petunia's sharp tones from the door. Lily sighed and turned to look at her older sister "What do you want?" "Go and make some dinner, I am not your slave," Petunia snapped. Lily sighed again and got up, followed by James, who immediately grabbed her hand. James glared at Petunia as they got out and Petunia huffed angrily before retiring to her room. "What do you want to eat?" Lily asked James as they entered the kitchen. "I don't know, whatever you want will be good," said James and sat on one of the chairs, watching her as she took out a pan and eggs. "So…why does Petunia treat you like that?" he asked, trying to sound nonchalant. "It's like that ever since I got my Hogwarts letter. We were

And I bet that's why she treated Harry like that." "It's not fair." James said as Lily put the omelettes on the table and turned to cut some tomatoes. "Yep. but after I got the letter she kind of locked herself in her room for about 8 hours and after that she treated me like trash." said Lily as she took a bite from her omelette "You'll probably see him here a lot." Lily explained shortly.best friends before. obviously confused why would someone want to make drills all of his life. "It's a muggle device which makes holes in the wall. "And he makes that?" asked James in wonder." "Well." snorted Lily." sighed Lily "But what can I do? She's jealous and now that my parents are…are dead-" Lily swallowed "-she's going to hate me even more. "I know it isn't. "She is stupid. she's got to be stupid if she lets such a thing like jealousy tear you two apart. "What's drills?" asked James in interest." ." said James. she is engaged to a man who makes drills.

" he growled and pulled her for another kiss. Lily smiled "You should get used to it. throwing his arm around her. dreamt about her parents tonight." he breathed out silently. Lily took her finger and ran it over James's forehead. She turned over quietly. She managed it – James's frown disappeared. James was frowning in his sleep and his hands tightened around Lily. who was standing in the door with an expression ."Can't wait. hoping not to wake James. "Mom. herself. When Lily woke up the next morning. When he saw her James immediately smiled and leaned for a kiss "I can get used getting up like that. but James woke up." James's smile grew "Indeed you are." he said. it took her a few of minutes to remember why is she sleeping on the bed in her house and why someone was sleeping next to her. They told her how much they loved her and she sobbed in her mother's arms until she woke up. I'm your fiancée. A throat clearing broke their heated kiss and Lily looked at Petunia. he was dreaming about his parents. Lily's eyes prickled. so his frown would disappear. She." said James dryly.

"Make breakfast and make sure it's enough for Vernon and I too. Lily grinned mischievously and waited until she felt something hit her stomach softly. James took a deep breath and sent a desperate message to Lily through his head. "Better go and make breakfast!" she said and watched as James tried to look normal.of sheer disgust on her face. "Minx. hearing James groan." she said and walked out of the door. James kissed her mouth quickly "Let's go make breakfast." The Evans's funeral took place in an old church near Lily's ." "Cold shower James?" said Lily innocently before shutting the door after her." he whispered in her ear. James swore. Lily sighed deeply and closed her eyes. you do that…I'll go home and will be back in about half hour ok? I need to take a shower and I don't have any cloths here. Lily grabbed his hair gently and pulled him to her so his head was lying on her bosom. She pushed James over and stood up. "Yes.

house. She cried quite a bit and when people came and shook her hand. But she was still crying when they lowered her parents into the ground. I cannot begin to understand why mom and dad didn't send you to an orphanage. telling her how wonderful her parents had been. "Yes. "Where do you think you're going?" snapped Petunia's voice from behind her. Lily looked exhausted "I'm going to rest for a bit. so at least stay here. Lily had to use every ounce of self-control she still had. please. "No you are not! You are the reason they're dead! If it weren't for your freakiness they would still be alive! You were always the most insufferable child." Lily said weakly. so she would not burst out crying. you insufferable freak!" . who looked exhausted. "Do you want to get out of here for a while?" James asked Lily. you would be better there. but Lily wasn't ready or willing to make one. because of James's support and care. Petunia gave a speech. Petunia" said Lily. away from us with your unnatural freakiness. James held her while people talked about her parents. Lily looked better than she had for the last couple of days.

"You passed out. "What happened?" she asked weakly. The feel of something wet on her forehead woke Lily up. "In my house at Godric's Hollow." said James with a slight smile. Lily noticed she was lying on an unfamiliar bed. Petunia-"James said in distaste . Slowly." said James and put the wet towel aside. in a warm surrounding that she didn't know. It's your house too now. "Where are we?" she whispered. she opened her eyes to the concerned gaze of James. which was throbbing painfully.Lily burst out crying at the middle of Petunia's speech. "After you passed out I packed your stuff and flooed here. How did we get here?" she asked. "I have a horrible headache. pressing her hand to her head. He sat on the bed and turned his body so he was looking at her. "Are you all right?" he asked. She just noticed James was holding his wand when everything turned black. the weight of the last couple of days came crushing down at her all at once.

" "But Lily. This is Voldemort's fault!" Tears were pouring out of Lily's eyes by now "Thank you. I want to elope now. wiping her tears." said Lily.didn't you say that you want to wait?" spluttered James. sprayed the water all over the floor. "W-What?" he spluttered." she said simply." "That's ok James. tears prickling behind her eyes. Lily. She is a horrible person with horrible opinions and you have nothing to be ashamed of. This is not your fault. "I don't want to wait anymore James." ." James. shook his head and nodded. James." James looked at her with surprise etched on his face. who was drinking a cup of water."Ordered me to take you out of the house and never come back again. "It's not ok. A couple of minutes passed in silence and suddenly Lily looked up with a determined glint in her eyes "Let's elope. I'm sorry Lily. We are already engaged and I don't want to wait any longer. "Let's elope. "Ok. When he saw she was serious he sighed.

still shocked and stood up. James sighed and rubbed his eyes. "Yes Dilly. James sighed again. James's eyes widened "But Lily…" "Today James. What made her change her opinion so quickly? And why today? "Dilly?" he called. her eyes glittering.Lily smiled happily and kissed him deeply." said James and after a little thought "And a nearby place for a honeymoon." Dilly bowed and disappeared. As he walked out of the room he let his confusion show on his face. "Let me go arrange it. He didn't attend his . can you?" asked James." she landed another bomb. "Yes Master James?" squeaked Dilly. "I need you to find me a place in United States where Lily and I could get married today." "Today Master James?" Dilly's eyes widened." she said. "Let's elope today. A second later Dilly appeared with a small 'pop'." he sighed and kissed her forehead. "Dilly will try Master.

Lily was his future." muttered James and rubbed his eyes." he said. A ring. He couldn't believe he was going to get married today to Lily. But he was afraid that Lily would regret it later." he said with a mouthful of pancakes. "Smells good. "What for?" she asked. Minutes later Lily came downstairs and smiled as she smelled the food. chewing with his mouth . James handed her the plate and put his on the table. "We need to buy rings.parents' funeral yesterday. cutting her pancake into squares. "Crap. James went to the kitchen and started to make pancakes. They didn't have an engagement period where Lily could show off a ring to her friends. "Lily!" he called "Breakfast!" "Coming!" he heard Lily yell and smiled. He could get used to that. Lily was more important and even though his parents meant a lot to him." she said and took a seat. He was by all means ready. "We should go out today. and he could always visit his parents' grave.

She discovered that a few minutes from the house there was a small river. "Just taking care of things. even muggles came there to shop for jewellery." but then she beamed "You're the best!" James smiled sheepishly and took a gulp of his pumpkin juice." When they both finished their breakfast. "Pretty neat isn't it?" asked James with a small laugh as he saw Lily's reaction.open. After the tour around the place. covered with plants all around it. . A little bell rang when James opened the door and Lily's eyes widened in shock when she saw the thousands of glittering diamonds all around her. "James close your mouth when you eat. James took Lily to Cheshire and they walked and shopped around the wizarding village for five hours before they found a jewellery shop. 'Madam July' Jewellery Shop was the most prestigious jewellery shop in Cheshire and because it was located outside of the wizarding village. James took Lily to a tour in the neighbourhood. Lily was absolutely smitten with the place.

"No problem at all. The woman's eyebrows raised a little and then she smiled." said Lily."Hello dears. At Lily's questioning gaze he explained: "It's the formal Potter stone." Lily murmured in understanding and looked at the options with a slightly open mouth. We've used this stone for generations. we are searching for a wedding band for both of us." said James quickly. choose whatever you want." . "James-" started Lily "Are you sure we have enough money for any of these?" she whispered. still in awe of the shop. She looked very nice and warm. Any stone in particular?" "Onyx please. "Yes please. She really didn't think James could afford any of these rings. need some help?" James and Lily turned to see a plump middle-aged woman with reddish hair with several grey stripes. James smiled "Of course we do." Lily had a hard time believing it. "I promise Lily. we have enough money to buy hundreds of those. The Potter family is one of the oldest.

"I think that we'll take this one. with a rectangular black onyx." said James and passed her a small note. broad golden band. The second one was gold. a simple. set between two smaller stripes of diamonds."Are you sure?" Lily asked hesitatingly. Both James and Lily gasped. He already chose his ring. "You're a witch?" Lily asked. James let Lily look at the ring again when they walked home "All my love. After almost two hours of looking at rings. James" Lily said as she looked at the inscription." she pointed on the first ring and heard both the woman and James sigh with relief. Lily cut the choice to two beautiful rings: One was gold. rope-style band with twirls holding a black onyx heart in the centre. James kissed her in response. The witch just smiled and handed James the ring. "Finally. She smiled happily before kissing him. The woman smiled and looked around before taking out her wand and tapping the ring twice. Lily asked for James's opinion but he refused to interfere and wanted Lily to choose whatever she wanted the most. "Yes please. "I love . "Do you want any inscription on the ring?" she asked." he muttered.

Lily Evans.you. She is just as pretty as he always said." James said and took the ring." "Master James. "Dilly is only doing her job Miss Lily." squeaked Dilly with ." she said." said Dilly with a bow. "Hello Dilly." "Thank you Dilly. "Master James!" James and Lily turned to see Dilly standing on the stairs. They both entered the house and immediately heard a noise." said Dilly. "Wait till the wedding dear. "Hey!" said Lily. Dilly found the perfect place for your wedding." Dilly shook her head "Dilly already did that Master James. but we need to pack some bags first. Dilly." "Dilly is very glad to see Master James's fiancée. "I love you too." he teased her. May I introduce you to my fiancée. Lily's lips twitched before she laughed. "Do you want me to take you there?" James smiled "Thank you Dilly. "Thank you. Lily blushed." said Lily softly.

Miss Lily. thanks." squeaked Dilly and turned to James "The receptionist will tell you all the details you need." she said and apparated out with a small 'pop'. looking around as she got up. The receptionist didn't wait for him to continue the sentence. "Hi. your stuff is already there. "Hawaii. "It's so beautiful here. She took out a piece of parchment and gave it to James. James couldn't answer as he just located the receptionist and was walking towards her." she drawled in a heavy American accent.another bow. . Unprepared for the sudden change of location. both James and Lily fell on the floor. Lily and James both took their surroundings in awe. Dilly took James and Lily's hands in hers and apparated them to a large hotel. James and Lily opened the door to their room and Lily didn't wait one more second before going to the shower." said James and took the key. "Right. my name is James Potter-" James started. "Where are we?" asked Lily. with a small key." breathed Lily. "Room 160.

That was the idea behind eloping. A priest will be waiting for you and your chosen one and a witness on top of the falls. "Crap. Hawaii in 8pm.(he looked at his watch) .James opened the note as soon as she was out of sight.3 hours. They are really going to do this. But then James noticed that he forgot something – a witness. Gabriel Haili James drew a ragged breath. no one was supposed to witness the marriage. Now what where they going to do? . When you eloped. He was going to marry Lily Evans in. Mr James Potter. Enjoy your stay." he muttered. January 2nd at Wailua Falls. Your house-elf and I reached to an agreement that you will marry today. Your honeymoon period will start as soon as you get to the hotel and end at January 7th at 3pm. Paradise Hotel manager.

Her eyes widened when she realised she forgot her cloth. Only when she heard the door close. There was silence in the other side of the door and Lily blushed hard when she realised she will have to come out with towel only in order to take her cloths. "Yeah?" "I forgot my clothes…" she said meekly. thank God…" she muttered and opened the door."Lily. "Yes. Her breath hitched when she got to the word 'honeymoon' and just like James. she suddenly realised they didn't have a witness. "Er…James…" she said weakly. She dressed quickly and went to pick up the note James left on the bed. "Ok…" said Lily in embarrassment. "I'll…I'll just go out for a while…" said James and he sounded a bit chocked. "Oh. I'll be right out!" said Lily. "Lily?" she heard James outside of the door "Are you . she allowed herself to breath. are you done yet?" he called.

She would marry James in a couple of hours and one day…one day they'll have their own little Harry. She refused to get cold feet now." said Lily and James entered the room. "I love you. Lily started laughing and James soon joined her." he said as he lied on the bed. for the rest of your life. . you are going to see me everyday now. "The receptionist was more than happy to help us…" he muttered. Having the receptionist as a witness was so ridiculous they just couldn't resist." And as if suddenly realising it herself Lily let herself relax on the bed. "Go ahead. next to her. "You should." said James suddenly and Lily looked at him with a smile. When they finally stopped laughing there was a comfortable silence in the room. Lily allowed herself to smile on the thought and ran her hands through James's hair." she said.decent?" "Yes. "I should get ready. then." said James. "I found us a witness.

smiling at Lily. and keep her in sickness and in health until death do you part?" "I do." said Lily and slid the ring on James's finger. "May I go now?" said the receptionist. Lily Rose. who looked quite bored. Lily was wearing a white dress and was smiling happily as Lily slid the ring through his finger. comfort him." ." said the priest with a smile. James leaned forward and kissed Lily happily. comfort her. James Harold." said James and turned to Lily again "I love you too. honour him. "You may kiss the bride." said James.Lily smiled and got up. and keep him in sickness and in health until death do you part?" "I do. take James Harold to be your husband? Will you love him. She was doing the right thing. "And do you. honour her. will you take Lily Rose to be your wife? Will you love her. "I love you." she whispered as they broke the kiss. They were standing on top of the falls. "You may.

"Of course I'm right I-" But Lily didn't get to finish her sentence since James kissed her." he said and Lily smiled in triumph. which came as a slap in the face from James when he told Lily to put the ring in her pocket. The only thing he is to me is be the headmaster. . he can't control what I do. "I will not put the ring in my pocket. "I love you.*Chapter 20*: Chapter 21: All Out All Out James and Lily's return to Hogwarts forced them to think of other things besides themselves." he breathed. Lily Potter. James!" she ranted as they went to the tower. "But Lily. I don't care what anyone thinks. and I defiantly don't care about what Dumbledore thinks! He doesn't rule my life. what if anyone sees? What if Dumbledore sees? He'll know we got married!" Lily stopped and turned to face her husband "James." James sighed and rubbed his forehead "You know what? You're right. He took the ring out of his pocket and put it on his finger.

"I'm sorry. "A ring. Amy looked on their intertwined fingers and met Lily's gaze in shock. "It's okay. The entered the common room and saw the guys waiting for them on the sofa. Both Lily and James sat on the sofa and Lily immediately snuggled to James and put her left hand on his. James patted his back. He walked towards James and engulfed him in a tight brotherly hug. No way! "Lily…" said Amy with shock "Can I talk to you for a minute?" Lily. amused by Amy's reaction. James.Lily smiled and her heart beat faster. . I am." he said as Sirius gave him a sceptical look. "What do you have on your finger?" asked Amy sharply. she really is Lily Potter. raising her eyebrows. Sirius was the first to get up. She is James's wife and nothing is going to change that." he said with a slight smile "Really." said Lily. got up and followed her out of the common room." he said gruffly.

do I?" she laughed bitterly. We just felt that it's the right thing to do."Yes! I noticed it's a ring!" snapped Amy "Why do you have a ring on your finger?" "Because James and I eloped." "Do you promise?" whispered Amy. but we felt it was the right thing to do. and I don't regret marrying James. Amy shook her head in amazement but then looked at Lily with sad eyes "I wanted to be your maid of honour…" she confessed. "You eloped? Lily! Aren't you too young?" she whispered frantically." said Lily simply. "Maybe we are. And this time. you're going to be . "We did it after the funeral Amy." "But…Your parents' funeral…" muttered Amy Lily's eyes flashed. watching in satisfaction as Amy's eyes almost popped out of her head in shock. Lily nodded happily "Yes. "I guess I don't have to be now." Lily said sharply. "We are going to have another wedding.

my maid of honour and Sirius is going to be Best man and everything…I promise." said Sirius in a hurt voice. "I am. We eloped because it felt right and not because we wanted to be married alone. He hadn't forgotten "I am sorry Padfoot…I promise we'll do another wedding for you guys." Amy hugged Lily. "Is it true? Are you married to Lily?" he asked in a low voice. "I'm so happy for you!" she squealed and Lily beamed. "I thought we agreed on fourth year that I'll be your best man when you got married. Sirius cornered him after Charms." James sighed." "Or because you wanted to get in the sack with Lily?" joked Sirius. Both of them entered the common room beaming and James instantly knew that Amy knew they had eloped. back to his usual self." said James proudly. And he was right. . He also knew that it wouldn't take long for the others to discover their secret. "James. getting straight to the point. Barely two days after they got back.

Jenny and Remus did not look offended when they discovered James and Lily were married. "Why not James? He is one of our friends. James ignored him though his cheeks reddened. as if fearing the Lily would lurk in one of the corners.James punched his shoulder "It has nothing to do with it. . Ever since the Hogwarts Express you are acting very oddly. we want some answers too. causing Lily to giggle. Please believe us when we ask you not to tell him. "Look. James and Lily exchanged uneasy glances "Look…we have our reasons. They were very glad for them and secretly hoped that the year will be finished already so they could have a proper wedding. you hated James last year." he hissed. "But it is a benefit right?" Sirius said with a smirk." said Remus. Lily. looking around." pleaded Lily. what happened?" said Amy. frowning as he regarded James carefully. Amy and Sirius crossed their hands over their chest at the same time. finally touching a subject that bothered her for months. James and Lily's request not to tell Peter puzzled the girls and made the boys frown.

"James and I had a fight. "It all started at the Hogwarts Express. the room span and we found ourselves in the Heads Compartment with a boy and a girl we didn't know." said Lily once again." he said before getting a smack on his head from Amy. "Let them talk!" she snarled impatiently. Sirius snorted "We know that already." . Sirius nodded and inwardly swore." started Lily.We'll have to tell them James thought and directed his thought towards Lily." snorted Sirius and was smacked again by Amy. they are going to get some answers. Sirius. "It all started at the Hogwarts Express. who heard his thought clearly and frowned before nodding. Jenny and Remus sighed with relief – finally. I won't tell you!" she said. Lily glared at Sirius "If you won't let me talk. grabbing James's hand. glaring at Sirius "And suddenly the room span around us and we found ourselves in the Heads compartment – " "You were already there!" exclaimed Sirius. "Anyway." said Lily again. "James and I had a fight – " "Typical. Amy.

that's not all…Apparently…in the future…James and I were married and had a son…" said Lily with a beginning of a blush. we were woken from the floor by a very old McGonagall. "Way to go Prongs!" yelled Sirius and James threw him a dirty look that did not cover his amusement. "We were talking to Dumbledore in his office – " "You didn't do anything wrong!" said Sirius when he couldn't help himself. "I know we didn't Sirius! But please! Let me finish!" yelled Lily in frustration. James nodded "But. "And Dumbledore told us that…that we were in 1997. After a few minutes the girl came back and the next thing we know." Stunned silence followed that statement "You travelled to the future?" whispered Remus." said James. "Fine. "We had a son called Harry. fine…" muttered Sirius and shut up again." ."They boy looked at us and said something that we couldn't catch and he and the girl ran away from the compartment. deciding to help Lily. and he was an orphan.

"A charm which conceals a secret inside a living person. Lily smiled sadly again. .Amy choked "You died? You were dead in the future?" she said disbelievingly." "What's the Fidelius Charm?" asked Jenny. He lived with my sister." continued Lily through the disbelieving gasps "And we were sent into hiding apparently. "So who was your Secret Keeper?" asked Amy. "Harry was prophesied to kill Voldemort. Lily nodded "And apparently Harry – our son – defeated Voldemort the night we died.hoarse face!" said Amy. Petunia. "But he probably lived with me though." said Sirius with a confident smile. We were under the Fidelius charm." A collective gasp made the Lily and James smiled wearily. "That's just it Sirius…he didn't. the Secret Keeper and the information is impossible to be found unless the Secret Person chooses to divulge it." Amy and Jenny gasped and spluttered "What! Why would he live with that… that…. James and Lily exchanged sad look and squeezed each other's hand.

" said James with a scowl. When Peter saw Sirius he blasted the whole street apart and changed forms and ."It was Peter. Sirius stared at her in disbelief and Lily took the chance to continue the story "Anyway. but how do you know he's a Death Eater now?" he said." A thick silence took over the group. he was there the night my parents were murdered. I think you're taking this too far. "You think it'll be cool if James and I have a baby." she said and James coloured. Lily sighed." Remus barged "Peter might have done this in the future. he went after Peter. Peter is a Death Eater. What am I thinking?" said Sirius daringly. "And he was working for Voldemort. after Sirius heard that Peter betrayed us. looking at James shrewdly. "I really do." "Wait a minute James." Both Amy and Sirius snorted and Lily sighed. Lily looked into his mind and smiled a little. "I have the ability of looking into people's mind. And he did it again. "It can't be…" whispered Sirius disbelievingly "Peter would never betray us…" James nodded "But he did." "Prove it then.

you…you died…two years later…" Sirius stared at them in disbelief and rubbed his eyes. And made sure that Harry knew you were innocent. "I died?" he asked in a rasped voice. Harry died that night. pleading Lily and James not to tell her. ." Amy and Jenny squealed in delight and cooed as Lily smiled nervously. He broke out of Azkaban when Harry was in third year…" "I broke out of Azkaban?" asked Sirius in a hushed whisper. anyway. Lily nodded. Voldemort killed him…" she said. and he proposed to her. Harry found himself a girlfriend. But it didn't matter anyway. There was an awkward silence for a few minutes until James cleared his throat "Anyway. "It didn't matter. James nodded "You did. Remus paled suddenly and shook his head.Sirius was framed for killing Peter." "Wait…changed forms?" asked Jenny. Sirius was framed and was tossed to Azkaban without a trial. and a few tears escaped her eyes. "It doesn't matter. Ginny. "It was really hard on Harry…" she whispered.

Life was normal again and even though they found it hard at the beginning. Lily and James also had to make sure they had enough time for preparing for the NEWTs. The awkward silence was once again broken by James hoarse voice "Guys…we should treat Peter the same way…at least until we finish school. "After Voldemort killed him. all of the information we came across in the future will be for nothing if we turn our back now. . all of them treated Peter like they would have had they not known." said James hoarsely.. "We have to guys. hugging her. Sirius and Amy grudgingly agreed to treat Peter the same way as they did before. The preparations for the Graduation Ball were driving Lily and James off the wall and in addition to the ball.Amy and Jenny immediately sobered and James drew Lily close to him." Loud protests came from Amy and Sirius but Lily beat them to it. Jenny and Remus what happened. Months passed after James and Lily's told Amy." It took some convincing from Jenny and Remus. but eventually. we were transported back here and that's…that's all. Sirius.

" explained Sirius one morning when Lily and James didn't come for breakfast because they had worked on the Graduation Ball the night before. "I can't help them! I have a workload myself!" snorted Amy." said Remus. Padfoot. was quite stressed about the NEWTs. if we don't help them. It's not easy. "They have a workload. which made them both snappish and edgy. "there's always Voldemort to worry about. and if we all help them." Amy shivered at the mental image of parts of James and Lily's bodies lying scattered on the walls and floors of the .With their hectic schedule. they are going to explode soon. They have the Graduation Ball. they are working really hard." "Why don't we help them than?" suggested Jenny. it's not going to be such a tremendous addition to your workload. "It's not sexual frustration. "I hardly think that that's what's bothering them. James and Lily hardly found some time alone. Please. She. gulping from her pumpkin juice. "It is sexual frustration. "Look." said Amy. Lily's worried about a dress and – "Remus cast a furtive look at Peter. the NEWTs. who got to talk with Lily every once in a while. herself. and it's not going to be pretty. and no one is helping them. Amy.

Jenny. Sirius and Peter went to the common room. After breakfast. Nothing.Great Hall. James and Lily did not respond. let us help you. "Fine! Fine! We'll help them then…" she said and Remus beamed. "James? Lily?" Remus cleared his throat. "Can we help you?" asked Jenny. Remus cleared his throat again. "Please. James and Lily's head snapped up "What?" they snapped at the same time. clearly annoyed by the lack of response. where James and Lily were both writing furiously on pieces of parchment. Lily. walking closer to Lily. you don't have to do it all by yourself…" said Jenny. "Ah? James? Lily?" he said a little louder. "Guys!" called Sirius loudly." said Lily and got back to her parchment. Amy. "No. . Remus.

she took James's breath away. When Lily came downstairs." she said and smoothed his robes. When seeing they were all very serious. "You look…amazing. Nothing." she said and the others immediately sat on the floor while James and Lily gave some of their chores to them. she turned to James. She sighed heavily. The night of the Graduation Ball was very stressing for both Lily and James. with a diagonally cut skirt and thin straps that crossed in the back. you look pretty handsome yourself. who begged her with his eyes for some help. Lily's smile curved into a smile "Thank you. They worked on this Ball for weeks and nothing could go wrong. "Fine."James and I are doing just fine thank you." said James. Her hair was up in a French bun and she had long sparkling diamond earrings that caused every boy in the common room to turn his head in awe. his mouth dry. . She wore a red silk dress." said Lily with an odd catch to her voice. "Lils…Please let us help you…is there anything we can do about the ball?" Lily sighed and looked up again.

During these years. The sound of McGonagall. every eye was turned to Lily as she entered the Great Hall. put a stop to the chatter and all eyes were on the headmaster. the food appeared. Just like in the common room. I want to wish you all a great life. Chatter started again as the graduating students ate their onebefore-last feast at Hogwarts. who stood up. but eventually all of the excited seventhyears were in the Great Hall. knocking gently on one of the glasses." Applause broke as Dumbledore finished his little speech and after a few seconds."Let's go. and the students – your family. Dumbledore stood again "I want to welcome to the dance floor our Head Boy and Girl. "Tomorrow will be the day you leave Hogwarts after a journey of seven years. It took some time. There was no escaping – Lily looked incredible. to open the dance. chattering with their friends. Hogwarts became your home." Lily said and gladly accepted James's arm. He took her to the dance floor and the tone of a slow beat caused James to put his hands around ." James stood up and offered his hand to Lily as applause was sounded again. As the food disappeared an hour later. full of love and hope.

" she said. even Peter helped. "What is it Lily? Tell me. we don't have to…" "No. we can't let him cause any more damage." James said roughly "You're right. Lily nodded "We do need to give some credit to the guys though. She felt James stiffen under her arms "Look James." James's features darkened at the mention of Peter "What are we going to do about Peter now? Are we supposed to ignore him?" he said. he is not my friend any more…" Lily sighed deeply and looked into James's eyes "I think we need to turn him in to the Ministry." noted James." he said resolutely. "We can't let . not even noticing the dance floor was filling up with swaying students. but she hesitated. As they danced and looked into each other's eyes. "We did a great job on this Ball. not looking at James. Lily had a pretty good idea what they should do with Peter.Lily's waist and Lily's hands to wrap themselves around James's neck.

" said James and broke away from Lily. Harry's life. showing him exactly how happy she felt at the moment. "Hey. "Never.him ruin our life. lovebirds. "Just don't run off with her." Lily's breath was taken away from her at James's words and she kissed him earnestly. Lils…" he stated with a charming smile. "What did we have this year?" he said and pretending to ." grinned Sirius and watched as James took his place in Amy's arms. Sirius…" Lily joked back. grinning." "You're planning on having children than?" asked Lily lightly. "So. "So." James and Lily broke the kiss and saw that none other than Sirius Black had ruined their romantic moment. James smiled "Of course I am I can't wait to start a family with you. "Mind if I share a dance with your wife?" Sirius asked.

I trust you.think "Well. in the Hogwarts Express you hated James. Lily smiled softly at him "I will." "I still can't believe you eloped. I promise you'll have some godchildren soon." confessed Lily "But I'm not sorry…it made my life…complete." Sirius's eyes widened and he stopped dancing "Are you?" he asked in an excited whisper." Sirius clutched a hand to his heart "Don't do that to me!" he said and Lily giggled as he twirled her. "I promise you'll be the second to know if I am." she said. Lily shook her head in amusement "Not yet. "I can't either." said Sirius and Lily laughed again "Treat him right. went to an exciting adventure at the future." she said. . Miss Evans. I'm impressed." said Sirius in amazement. Lils." Sirius said seriously. came back in love with James." Sirius said with a rough smile. I said soon. "Such fine words from such fine lady. and got married before the year was over. this year isn't over yet… Don't forget that you have a wedding to attend in two months. too. not very soon. Lily laughed "Well Mr Black.

" Lily wailed. "James. Even if you looked like a hag. James would still think you were beautiful." she said in delight. You look marvellous." . "Lily. Now hold still so the… er… lady… can finish your hair. for the first in her life. "Amy! I look… I look horrible. right… Lily Potter…" Sirius muttered and twirled her.not the slightest bit embarrassed about discussing it with Sirius. sending her friend a pleading look." said Lily. Sirius looked embarrassed for forgetting James and Lily laughed again. of course. Evans!" he hissed. saw Sirius Black blush. and you look perfect. shut up. "No. "Right. Sirius raised his eyebrows "Who'll be the first?" he asked arrogantly. "It takes two to make a baby you know! Should I explain?" Lily. rolling her eyes. Lily giggled "It's Potter." "But Amyyyyyyy…" "Lily! Stop it! It's your wedding day.

" the Hairdresser said politely. Amy." she finally managed to say. "snap out of it!" Lily blushed deeply and apologized. "Ye. but now. James won't know whether he's in heaven or at a wedding when he sees you!" . "Oh. in a low. breathy voice. After all. Lily couldn't help being nervous." Amy said sharply." Even though it was the second time she was marrying James. slapping her lightly on the side of the face so no mark would show up. And there would be a long second honeymoon. and Amy suddenly went speechless. Lily. "Your hair's done. "Sorry.no. huh?" she asked with a slight twitch of her mouth. Lily stood up."But-" "Lily. Lily had always been pretty. ma'am. she was wearing a dress and had a maid of honour. without the pressure of Albus Dumbledore. this is the real wedding. "That bad. you look gorgeous! Oh. I got a bit… carried away.now she was beautiful.

beaming and looking all the more beautiful. became brighter." Lily whispered to the man escorting her down the aisle. "Miss. it's time. flowing white silk skirt and a sleeves bodice with a swooping neckline that sharpened to a point in the middle. Delicate pearl embroidery in the form of flowers adorned the neckline and followed to opposite side." "Thanks again for doing this. Remus was somewhat sad that . Lily's smile. if possible. a slightly reminiscent smile on her face. with a long. while the rest of her hair fell down her back in perfect ringlets. until recently. Her dress was simple and elegant. Remus. poking her head in. Her hair was up in an elegant half-bun. "Let's go. You have no idea what this means to James and I." Lily said."Good." Lily said. "Certainly not me. While he had expected it." a woman said. "C'mon Amy!" "Who'd have ever thought you'd marry James?" Amy laughed.

take James Harold Potter to be your lawfully wedded husband until death do you part?" finally broke through Lily's reverie. Lily Rose Evans. take Lily Rose Evans to ." eh said.he was not best man. After all. "And do you. James Harold Potter. face threatening to light up the entire room with pure happiness. when they came to the dilemma of who would escort her down the aisle. Lil. she asked that it be Remus. inches away from his face as Remus gave her to him. She didn't hear what was being said. "I do. He wore a black tux. She should have known it wouldn't behave. "No problem. James… Lily fought to keep her jaw from dropping. And suddenly she was at the end of the isle. His hair still flopped messily over his warm hazel eyes. and Lily had known this. So. and neither did James. before turning his eyes back to where James and Sirius stood. even on his wedding day. to have and too keep forever. They were too absorbed in each other's eyes "Do you." she said. and looked even more stunningly handsome than usual. he had been a good friend to James and her for years.

" Sirius said coolly from behind her.be your lawfully wedded wife until death do you part?" "I do. You know. He leaned forward in a kiss that was far more than fireworks and lust." "Lilsy." he mouthed against her lips. a bride-best man thing. and Sirius held his hand out for her. I was just about to claim her for a dance myself. . shaking her head in amusement as she saw Sirius's glowing face. "Sirius. "Actually." she whispered as they finally broke apart. "You may kiss the bride. "Only Sirius." he said softly. The drunken man slunk off to goodness knows where.it was true love. "RECEPTION TIME! NOW WE CAN ALL GET DRUNK!" a familiar voice boomed jovially from behind them. "Love you too." the priest said. "I love you. wouch you liksh to dansh wi' meee?" a very tipsy man whom she had never seen before asked. smiling with an intensity that was almost unbelievable. the kind that would last through anything. droning tone not changing in the slightest." Lily muttered.

" "Yes." Lily breathed in relief." he laughed. He hurts so much already. James… James wouldn't live without you. for once I must say. shut up. "But. And if you hurt him… well. "Well. though you've gone a long way to healing that. You know everyone loves you. don't hurt him." With a bow. She laughed as he spun her around the white and mauve dance floors." He brightened instantly. "Sirius. "Moony told me to come over here."Sirius. I know. I never thought it'd be you I'd give this talk too. leaving a thoroughly confused and somewhat alarmed Lily in his wake. before returning to normal. make sure I won't hesitate to hunt for you across the world until I make sure you pay. . actually…" he began somewhat uncomfortable. I guess he saw that guy moving towards you or something. sporting a false wounded look. He couldn't." he said. Lily. Sirius dropped his hands and walked away. you're timing is perfect. Everyone seems to think I'm entirely unreliable. once again returning to seriousness. "Somehow I'm less surprised with that than thinking you have good timing. "I must say.

" he said. so softly she was almost unable to hear it. I think my husband might want to dance with me. well. "I do. James walked around to her other side and simply said. "Love you. but James continued to dance with her. Round and around they twirled and Lily realized she had never felt safer in her entire life." she teased. and that she might very well die if things didn't work out right. The music ended. "The music's over." She laughed and they began to dance."May I have this dance?" an even more familiar voice asked from behind her. turning to look at James. "James." "So?" was his unconcerned reply. She smiled softly as they continued to sway to the imaginary beat. "I love you too. In his arms she could forget that she was going to be the mother of the wizard who defeated Voldemort." ." she whispered gently. "But. James.

probably while she and James were dancing. break up the mushy stuff. The Marauders Meet. Next flashed a James who seemed to be about two years old." Sirius called."Ok. "Behold… a true masterpiece. just about to board the Hogwarts Express.' . Lily alarmed and James bemused. Next came 'pranks." Out of the Pensieve hovered images of a very small –and very adorable. and several pictured of various 11-year-old Marauders flashed before them." He waved his want at a Pensieve that had been set up without her notice. ok. he looked remarkably mischievous for even a two-yearold. until it showed an image of him.baby James.they were horrible! Then 'James and Lily interact. "The slide show…of our dear Jamsie's life. and in the distance yelping could he heard. Large words flashed above. "It's time for… the slide show!" "What slide show?" both asked.' Even Lily had not heard of many of these. The 'slide show' went on for about 20 minutes of various pranks by a rapidly aging James.

Somehow. There was a whole part –a very important part. I regret to say that our masterpiece is complete. though. Lily and James fighting on the train. sensing her change in mood. "I know. and the knowledge of how short their lives were." she whispered back. "What I'm glad to say is that the limousine is here. the two of them kissing by the Lake. Their limited time with Harry. and his friends." James said softly. it was one of the most popular 'sports' at school. both Lily and James felt something was missing. while crowds gathered to watch.flashed above them Lily was screaming at James." Sirius said.of their life missing. Lily was amazed at how gorgeous she looked." The slideshow was now showing images from their wedding. Several images of this popped up. Harry… she felt like crying again. Then came 7th year. Oh. and James was stunned all over again. "I know. Lily sleeping in James's arms on the Gryffindor couch. Aside from Quidditch. now standing on a table. Appropriate 'awws' were heard every few seconds as new images flashed above the Pensieve. "Well. and James and Lily need to . Lily and James dating. Lil. "Shh… it's ok.

While on the honeymoon. "You know. it didn't really matter. She took it and teased." James moaned. appalled. make sure I don't see or suspect it unless you're fond of the idea of castration. but at the moment. but offering Lily his arm anyways.leave for their honeymoon. eyes sparkling as the driver pulled away. winking. "Not many wives are as amazing as you. be nice and don't play with other girls." Lily said." Lily said. not many wives get a second honeymoon so soon." Sirius said. as they climbed into the limo amidst a shower of rather hard and oddly coloured rice. if you are going to play with other women. offering her a . my brother. It had been a month from James and Lily's wedding and they long since returned from their second honeymoon. "James. "SIRIUS. James. "And I don't blame it." he exclaimed. Lily received a letter from the Charms Department in the Ministry for Magic. Prongs.if only there'd been a sunset to drive off into." Lily laughed." "The world is against me.

Lily immediately accepted the job and the first thing she did when she returned home was apparate to the Ministry and check out the department. she was exhausted and her hands hurt. "Because they want you to see what it's like. what kind of charms you will be working on." "So why do I have to do this?" moaned Lily. Eleanor Reed." commented Eleanor at lunch break "In a few months you're going to start working with the inventors. Her first task was to file some new charms and send them to the Minister.job in the innovation division. "It's not always like this. my workload is being reduced. It was horribly boring and by noon. Her boss. flexing her sore fingers. He showed her around the department and introduced her to her coworker. Lily discovered." Eleanor grinned and even Lily cracked a smile. . The division was trying new charms. was very nice and polite. filing them and giving them to the Minister for Magic for approval before it was introduced to the Wizarding society. My job is to file the charms but every time a new person comes here. Mr Hansel was a stern looking man that.

Apparently I need to file charms for two months before I actually start working on creating charms." he explained. "About two months. "Well. she was completely knackered. "Do you want dinner?" he asked. Lily was too tired . "Ok than. "No. Lily collapsed on the sofa and immediately put her head on James's shoulder." Needless to say. "It's bad only in the first two weeks. "James! What are you doing?" "Going to put you to sleep." he said and picked her up. James grinned." she mumbled into his chest. Lily yelped. how bad can it be?" he asked with a smile." mumbled Lily. Lily wanted to glare at him but she was too tired. I just want to sleep. "Exhausting. "Very bad. believe me. James chuckled." said Eleanor and Lily gasped in horror." James stroke her hair. when Lily came back to Godric's Hollow."So how long will I be doing it?" Lily asked. "How was work?" asked James from his seat on the sofa.

I'm up…" he muttered and opened his eyes slowly.to argue and she let him carry her to their bed. "I'm up. "Come on. James. "Mmmm?" Lily poked him again. "Mmmm?" "James!" said Lily sharply. "I have nothing to do. Lily sighed and poked his chest. anyway…why must I wake up?" he ." said Lily sleepily and yawned. Lily felt a fleeting kiss on her forehead before she fell asleep. She heard James groan above her and looked up to see that his eyes were half open and that he was hugging her close to his chest. The sound of the alarm clock woke Lily up. "Morning. time to wake up…" she said. Lily giggled. James only groaned and pulled her even tighter to him.

" James smiled a little and looked down at his wife "I think I will. Lily. . James's face fell and he closed his eyes "I know it's hard. "James…I think you need to turn Peter in…" she said and watched his reaction. Lily bit her lip. but please James. it was so hard to turn in to the Ministry a person who was a friend of his for seven years. James knew she was right. He already caused to our parents' death…" Lily said quietly. softened "Why don't you talk to Sirius and Remus? They can help you.moaned and buried his face in Lily's hair. he can cause so much damage while he's free. knowing his internal debate. Lily looked at the magical clock and gasped "I have to go!" she said and got up. Lily stayed silent for a couple of seconds "James…" she started with a hesitant voice. he flung himself down on the bed again with an 'oof' of exhaustion. of course." he said and without warning. James immediately sobered "What's wrong?" he said and looked down to her. but yet.

James sighed at the sudden lack of warmth and snuggled into his pillow. with Harry in Lily's arms. He longed to start a family with Lily. in the memory of Harry and because of Harry. As he dressed. Lily was already gone and the house was empty. The thought of Peter caused James to think about Harry. He went to the department of Magical Law . He was doing this for Harry. The prophecy said so. And most of all. Within seconds he was asleep again. He longed for a child of his own. James sighed into his pillow and thought about what he was going to do today. He is going to turn Peter in. He knew that at the moment he and Lily would face Voldemort. When he woke up three hours later. should he introduce them to Harry as soon as he was born? Or should he let fate play its part? Thoughts of Harry vanished from his mind as he appeared at the Ministry. He would make sure to give Harry the life he never had in the other world. he longed to get rid of Voldemort. he thought about Ginny and the Weasleys. And it didn't matter that the prophecy was made in another world. He also hoped that it wouldn't take long for Lily to be pregnant. Voldemort would be defeated.

"What are you doing here?" "I'm an Auror. who was five years before them in Hogwarts and gave them a few pranking tips when they were in second year. obviously happy to see someone who will help him. He cleared his throat and the witch snapped her head up. She looked him up and down and immediately adopted a sweet sugary voice. "What do you need?" James took Gideon aside "Look. no. "James? James Potter?" a voice said behind him. The witch frowned. obviously. do you remember Peter? The guy that was always with us? Chubby." she said with a bright smile. and James turned around to see Gideon Prewett. "I don't think so…" she said. looking apologist. "Gideon!" said James. "Did you schedule an appointment?" "Actually. "Hello.Enforcement and saw a secretary sitting in front of a messy desk." he said with a smile. blond hair…" . I was wondering if I could talk to one of the Aurors here?" James asked in the nicest tone he could master. chewing gum and reading a magazine.

"Are you sure? That's quite an accusation…" James nodded and swallowed a lump in his throat "Yes. "She's Lily Potter after all…" James walked out of the department." said Gideon."Yes! Yes. I'll look it up and I'll let you know ok? Where do you live?" "Godric's Hollow." shrugged James and smiled. "Oh yes. "Right. "Still crazy about her I see. I'm crazy about her alright. leaving a dumbstruck man behind. ." said James with a smile. "He's a Death Eater. I'm positive…" Gideon frowned and put his hand on James's shoulder "Look. why?" "Look…" said James and took a deep breath. of course." "I see. you were crazy about a girl back than." said Gideon "Tell me." said Gideon with a sly smile. who was it?" "Lily Evans." said James immediately.

They were all invited to the Order of the Phoenix. making all the marauders and their partners to finally feel free to talk and even breathe normally – without the threat of a spy. and not surprisingly. she put her heart in it. A staff meeting every weekend caused Lily to think about what charms were needed over the weekend. Three months has passed since she started her new job and the two months of hard work finally paid off and she was working with the inventors. they all accepted the invitation. Peter was arrested and convicted two weeks after James's visit at the Aurors Department. and he wasn't allowed to tell her much. she hadn't finished making dinner. James found a job in the Department of Mysteries. moving pots and pans in an alarming speed. which frustrated her to no end.*Chapter 21*: Chapter 22: Epilogue Epilogue Lily fussed around the kitchen. Lily swore. She would spend hours at work trying to find how to make charms work and when she was on to something. "Lily! I'm home!" James's voice carried from the door. .

she came to the living room to greet her husband. "How was your day?" James asked.Nevertheless." said Lily with a slight smile. They ate it silence and Lily sighed." she said and dashed to the kitchen. Lily nodded. James went upstairs to change and Lily sighed. "Lily.she was certain it was a passing thing. "Just fine thank you. usually. sipping his soup. James kissed her in response but Lily broke away after a few minutes "I didn't finish making supper. she would have asked how work was. "Smells great. "Thanks. she'd been feeling under weather for days and James suggested she'd go to a healer. but Lily refused. but since he was an Unspeakable. James frowned. are you sure you're feeling all right?" he said." she said with a smile and wrapper her arms around his neck. he wasn't allowed to discuss his job. . "Hello." James said as he came back downstairs." she said with a slightly croaking voice.

"Umm…that's nice. for the first time in her life wanted to get pregnant as soon as possible. we are working on a charm to determine the sex of a baby when he or she is still in the womb. She hated the thought of living like this and a baby would give some meaning to her life. not to mention a pregnant woman. "One of the researchers is pregnant and she was annoyed that she couldn't know the sex of the baby so she turned to us and we're working on it. complaining loudly about not knowing what the sex of the baby is. James smiled "So what else did you do today?" he asked. remembering the six-months-pregnant Melissa Carps. So is that how their life was going to look. from now on? James going to work. who came up with the idea?" asked James. not to mention something she and James could talk about." James nodded and they continued to eat in silence. "Well. and coming back without the option to tell her what he did today? Living on the stories of her work and otherwise sitting in silence? Lily." said Lily with a smile." said Lily. to tell you the truth that was all."It was nice. . it's not simple to create charms that affect the human body.

"Ice cream." commented James as they returned the plates in the sink. breathless was lying underneath him. kissing her neck. burst out laughing too." said James and Lily burst out laughing. Lily started screaming in laughter and James. "I don't know…I've just not been feeling well lately. James stole a kiss from her and Lily sighed into his mouth." James frowned "You really should go see a healer about it . "What do you need that you don't have?" she asked." Lily lifted her eyebrow. Lily's laugh was infectious and he was delighted to break the ice between them. "What is it?" he murmured. James stop tickling Lily and Lily. James made a face. "We hardly have any groceries in here." she said and pinched his cheek. Lily sighed again. making Lily giggle even harder."We should go to Diagon Alley. "You sound like a little boy. "Think it's funny do you?" he asked and started tickling her. unable to resist it. "What? I want ice-cream!" Lily giggled.

but just the thought of going to a healer was embarrassing. "You have to go see a healer. it was true. a cramp hit her so hard she couldn't walk or talk for half hour. "Maybe I will. "With a little luck it's just a cold and you'll be fine in a few days. "No Lily. while she was working. One time. what if it's something bad?" Lily pursed her lips and looked aside. sometimes bad enough she could barely stand them. you're feeling under weather for days." Lily sighed. Mungo's scared her. he was making sense of course." she whispered." "But James-" "No Lily. now.Lily." she said noncommittally." he said and kissed her again. . I don't want you sick. "Lily?" "James. She had never gone to the Hospital Wing at Hogwarts and the thought of going to St. she was feeling under weather for days and lately she had cramps in her stomach. I've never been to a healer before." said James sternly and Lily turned to look at him in surprise.

" said James when they stopped laughing. fine. . "100 sure?" said James weakly." "What!" James and Lily sat. James burst out laughing. Lily was suddenly anxious "Now? B-But James…isn't it too late?" she squeaked. Eventually Lily cracked and started giggling herself. James lifted his eyebrows and Lily sighed "Fine. open-mouthed at the healer's office." the healer said in amusement. The healer had a small smile on her face. indicating that they were not the first to react that way. I am sure Mrs Potter. "Stop laughing at me! It's not funny!" James only laughed harder.James had a hard time concealing his laugher "You've never been to a healer before? Lily smacked his arm and covered her eyes with her arm "No. Lily was the first to recover from the shock "Are you sure?" "Yes." she mumbled. why should she be afraid of healers? "Let's go now. It was ridiculous. I'll go and get dressed.

a smile started to spread on James's face. A real. he just stared at her in amazement. He was going to be a Daddy."Mr Potter. The healer." James and Lily returned to Godric's Hollow in a sort of daze. He hugged her tightly and a small sound of joy emerged from her throat. live baby. He looked at Lily and saw that she had a small smile gracing her lips. Slowly. obviously pleased there are no more questions. wrote a subscription for Lily. "Mummy. it'll help. Almost at the same time. No more than once a day though. they sat on the sofa in shock. take this potion. "If you have morning sickness. . Lily felt as if her heart would burst from joy any moment and hugged James. They were going to have a baby. James didn't answer." he whispered in her ear. are you questioning my abilities as a healer?" said the healer with an arched eyebrow. Lily turned her head and kissed him fully on the lips.

it was an amazing feeling. "I think we need to start building a nursery. it had a small bulge that caused James's heart to flutter. staring at her stomach. He opened his eyes and looked around the room. Lily is four months pregnant James woke up groggily and immediately felt that Lily wasn't in bed with him. . He opened the bathroom's door silently and gasped. His breath was caught in his throat. Lily was standing in front of a full-length mirror with only her bra and knickers on. He let his hand travel to her stomach and put it on the swell."Daddy. Lily wasn't there." Lily said." she said happily and kissed him again. "You look amazing. James let his eyes travel to her stomach before they widened in amazement. He swallowed a lump in his throat. Lily's stomach was no longer flat. he could see that even without his glasses. He put on his glasses and got up from bed." he said and engulfed her in a tight hug. He looked up to her face and saw her watching him with the same amazement he felt.

"Do you want to buy some stuff today?" he asked. "I can take the day off." he said. searching for shops that sell furniture and baby stuff. "Charlie! Come back here this instant!" a shrill voice yelled behind them. A plump pregnant redhead woman stumbled her way through the crowd to get to James and Lily. An eight years old boy was walking next to his mother and clinging to the ham of her shirt. "I will." the woman said and took the hand of the boy. James nodded eagerly. "Can you do that? Please do!" she begged. A little redhead boy ran past them and grabbed James's leg as he his from his mother. James and Lily walked hand in hand through Diagon Alley.looking into James's eyes. "I am so sorry. and we'll go to Diagon Alley and buy some baby stuff. James laughed. An hour later. quite excited himself. ." "Oh!" said Lily happily.

"Would you like to come for some tea sometime?" Lily offered. my husband. staring at the retreating back of Molly Weasley. Mrs Weasley smiled "Ah. we have some shopping to do. right?" she asked. "Well." she said. "Sure. yes." Lily did a quick math in her head and understood that the person Molly Weasley was carrying in her stomach was none other than Ron." said Lily."It's alright.

. "You know. James was shaking from suppressed laughter. painted in baby blue. Mrs Weasley was interested in Lily's pregnancy. Shorter too. she and Lily had become good friends over the past months and especially after Ron was born. one of her fears was the actual birth: it is supposed to be extremely painful." James rubbed Lily's arm and Lily calmed somehow. "I'm afraid so. But it's worth in the end. It was so odd to see Ron sucking out of a bottle. Molly smiled in sympathy.Lily smiled and led him to Greengrass's shop for Magical Furniture." she said to Lily "The first birth is always the hardest. I always delivered the babies myself. But it gets better in time. "Is it very painful?" she asked in a small voice.

Lily nodded. by the way. Squeals and screams of joy were heard from the living room "Thanks for bringing Sirius here. shaking her head vigorously "Neither is willing to get married.

"What. what is it?" Molly's kind voice said. James groaned. . He ran his way up the stairs to where Lily was sitting on the bed. James nodded and pulled his face out of the fireplace."James!" Lily called her husband from their bedroom. He ran to the bathroom and took some clean towels. Lily?" he yelled. put some clean towels under her buttocks ok?" she said. "Lily's in labour!" he gasped. "Molly! Molly!" he said hurriedly and went to the fireplace. "The Borrow!" he called in panic. "My water broke!" Lily called in panic as pain rippled down her stomach. "Call Molly!" she said. gritting her teeth. Lily could be a pain in the ass when she wanted something. Molly scrambled on her feet and called Arthur. grabbing her abdomen in pain. "James dear.

He opened the door to see Molly stroking Lily's hair. he was going to be a dad. Lily gritted her teeth. can you be a sweetheart and bring her a cup of ice water?" James nodded and scrambled out of the room. however. "It hurts like hell. James." he told Lily. he really didn't want to see a baby poking out of his wife.

Molly asked. dear."You need you to lift your hips. a pop sounded and Molly bustled into the bedroom. .

" she said and James felt his fingers numbing. James was not assured." she mouthed to him. The contraction was over and Lily was panting. "Obtorpesco. James Potter!" she growled. She squeezed James's hands and James now understood why Molly put a numbing charm on them. "They all say that. but as another contraction hit. "Push. "Go and sit behind her. "No. "It'll be over before you know it. out of sheer panic. pushed. "You need to push Lily dear. she's starting to push.Molly took James's hands and took out her wand." Lily shook her head. And Lily.
