Chapter 8: Nothing Happened
Back to Lily’s point of view.
I woke up feeling well rested, surprisingly and very warm. Last night felt like a dream, yelling at Severus, dancing with James... kissing James. I opened my eyes slowly and then shut them rapidly again. Okay so it wasn’t a dream. I had in fact gone to sleep in James Potter’s bed... With James Potter.
I opened my eyes again; James was still sleeping peacefully snoring very softly. He still had his glasses on, but they were now sitting crookedly on his nose. I almost giggled, he looked exhausted and yet so peaceful. God I must look a mess, I don’t even want to know what I look like; hair tangled and drool on my face I suspect.
I craned my neck to look at James’s watch. 8:40am I had twenty minutes to get down to the great hall to start the clean up. Just one problem, James had his arms wrapped tightly around me. I tried to carefully wiggle my way out of James’s arms without waking him. I almost thought I’d made it when...
“What do you think you’re up to flower?” He yawned sitting up and adjusting his glasses.
“We’ve got 20 minutes to get down to the great hall”
“That leaves 15 minutes for a good morning snog” He replied suggestively.
“James you are hopeless!” I laughed punching him in the arm and capturing his lips.
Now that I’d had it I’d never get sick of the feeling of his lips on mine. He pulled me in close to him and deepened the kiss. I question myself on every time I turned him down, turned these kisses down.
“James seriously, I’d love to stay here all day but...”
“Well that can be arranged...” He replied cheekily trying to pull me back into the kiss.
“James! We have to! We’re the heads!” I laughed swatting him away. He groaned.
“Five more minutes?” He asked hopefully.
“No... Maybe later if you’re lucky. I’m going to go get dressed. See you in the great hall in 10” And I left him lying there by himself in disbelief
I sprinted for my room and changed quickly. I would never live down the shame if I showed up late, not after last night.
“Morning Lily flower... how’d your night go?” Sirius asked as soon as I arrived at the hall.
“Fine thank you...” I said sheepishly.
“Just fine? Wow... with those muscles he works on you’d think he’d be better” Sirius replied, I blushed, I knew he was doing it to get to me and it was working.
“It wasn’t like that!” I hissed. He chuckled. “Who else is here?”
“Umm... that would be just us...” Remus piped up guiltily, Peter not far behind.
“What do you mean? There were at least 10 volunteers!” I cried at him.
“That was before Sirius decided to throw a party in the room of requirement after the ball.” Remus replied.
“You did WHAT!”I rounded on Sirius.
“Hey it was a good night! We didn’t want it to end, so we kept on going...”
“And we’ve now gone from us and 10 volunteers to us!” I growled.
“We’ll manage...” James said coming up behind me. “There are five of us. A couple of charms and a little help and we’ll be fine”
“Help from where?” I grumbled.
“Oh Twink!” James called sweetly.
“Yes Master James?” The elf appeared with a crack.
“Could you lend us a hand cleaning up by any chance?”
“Certainly Sir!” The elf squeaked and snapped his fingers.
The entire hall began to right it’s self all of its own accord. Within minutes it was spotless and ready for breakfast to be served it two hours time.
“You were going to do that all along weren’t you?” I asked.
“Maybe...” He chuckled.
“And you let me get out of bed?!”
“Out of bed!? You said it wasn’t like that!” Sirius yelled gleefully. I turned bright crimson.
“It wasn’t!” James said backing me up.
“Did you sleep in her bed?” Remus asked.
“No” he replied defiantely.
“Did she sleep in yours?” Sirius did the suggestive eye wiggle. James coughed.
“That’s a yes” Remus stated.
“But nothing happened”
“Nothing Moony, I promise!” James replied holding his hands up in surrender.
“Good because you hurt her and I kick your ass” He chuckled. I smiled
“Thanks Remus” I said giving him a hug. “Well now what do we do that we’ve got two hours to kill?”
The boys all looked at each other and nodded in agreement.
Merlin have mercy...
