Hey soo.... this is my 2nd story...yeah it`s kinda small....sorry it IS the prologue!
Amazing Chapter image by Draco_Luva @ Tda and HPFF! Thanks again!
“But Lily, my flower!!”
“I said no, Potter!”
“Whyyyyyyyyy?!?!” Potter whines.
I try to hum inside my head and walk away…using all the energy and will power that I consist of -trying not to turn right back around and hex him into the next century.
Oh wait. I haven’t introduced myself yet. Hi! I’m Lillian Elizabeth Evans! (Lily for short) I’m 17 years old and Head Girl at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I know what you’re thinking…”She’s a WITCH?!?” Yes. I am a witch, but not the evil cackling witch who sits at home all day cutting up humans. I’m the kind that goes to school, hangs out with friends, messes with boys and actually has a life! See! Nothing to be scared of! My sister wouldn’t think so…she calls me a freak.Oh yes,that’s supposed to intimidate me soooo much! Did you know I hate Potter?
How could anyone not know that I hate Potter, I mean, with him screaming every second of the day “Oh Lily…go out with me?” Puke. Puke. Honestly he is SO ANNOYING! Sending me flowers, always saving seats for me (of COURSE I don’t take them...he probably has some kind of charms put on them...) and stalking me.
…the first two were kind of okay, huh? Well I don’t care! He’s still Potter…we’re destined to be enemies!!
Anyways I can’t just stand here introducing myself and (apparently) Potter …I have to get to Defense Against the Dark Arts!
I walk into the class and have a seat beside my best friend, Alice Collin (A/N: he he…sorry I HAD to do that!!!!) I go to minding my own business when I hear a loud irritated cough from Mr.Callman, the current DADA teacher.
There's an awkward silence while Potter smirks at me from his seat.
How the bloody hell did he get here before me?!?! He was SUPPOSED to be behind me. I have no time to think of why Potter was early because Mr.Callman just interrupted my thoughts…again!
“Ms.Evans, would you care to explain why you are late?”
Oh yes, professor! Mr. Potter here kept me from class begging me to date him and I say that with him being here before me, supporting the fact that I might be lying. NO!
“Sorry, professor…I got a little held up at Care of Magical Creatures” Well I have to say something! And anyways…I know Hagrid will write a note for me if I ask him to.
“Hmm” he replies, not looking fully satisfied with that answer “very well, 5 points from Gryffindor.”
I easily take the punishment (not something I would usually do) and continue with class. It’s all going great until I find out what we’re learning … The Patronus charm. Eek. Eek.
The first people in class to get their Patronus’ are the Marauders. Black is a dog, Remus (yes Remus, not Lupin since we’re friends...You don’t call friends by their last names!) is a wolf. Potter is a Deer *snigger* I think it might have been a stag but deer suits his personality better …and oh yeah…Pettigrew…he’s a rat! Yes, a rat! Alice is next; her charm took the shape of a toad. Odd, huh?
My turn. “Expecto patronum” I say while thinking up the happiest memory I have (me, my parents and Tuney eating ice-cream on the hottest summer day…attempting to lick the ice-cream before it melts completely…failing miserably)
Suddenly a beautiful silvery Doe bursts through the tip of my wand and meets up with Potters’ De-I mean Stag in the middle of the room. The beautiful animals circle each other and then rise up in the air before forming a perfect silvery heart. I know what this means… Soul Mates. Me and Potter. Soul Mates. Potter and me. Soul Mates!!! …magic can be wrong…right?
I run out of the room leaving everyone in a shocked state, especially Potter.
I run as fast as I can all the way to the head common rooms, I haven’t met the Head boy yet. Apparently he got ill while coming to Hogwarts and didn’t make it to the train. He was supposed to be here today. I run to the portrait of The Great Sir and mumble the password “Applesauce”.
I run to the couch and sit down, tears pouring down my face. I can’t believe it.
“We can’t be soul mates … we’re destined to be enemies…we just can’t be!” I say to no one in particular.
“But we are…I’ve been trying to tell you for the past 6 years. Do you believe me now?” A familiar voice speaks up behind me. I don’t need to turn around to know who that is.
“Potter…how did you get in here?” I ask. Oh no! The answer dawns upon me before he had a chance to explain. He’s Head Boy. WHAT THE BLOODY HELL IS WRONG WITH DUMBLE-FLIPPIN-DORE! Potter was gone for 4 days. He came back today...Oh no…no no no no no!
“I’m Head Boy, Lily”
He takes advantage of my stuttering and kisses me.
What the…who KISSES someone when they stutter! You’re supposed to wave your hand in front of their face saying ‘go on’ or you say something to prompt them forward. NOT KISS THEM, DAMN IT!
I push him back with all of the force I have and punch him straight in the jaw,staggering backwards at the touch…I take a couple of steps back and..
