Lily couldn’t believe it. Her husband had finally lost it. She stared in shock as the car left without her. She couldn’t say a word. Jasmine, however, looked torn between shouting at the car – now driving on the road – and laughing into hysterics.


“Uh, James?” Remus asked. “Aren’t you forgetting something?”

“Huh? What d’ya…” James quickly looked around the car and realized for the first time that Lily wasn’t in it. “AAH!”

At the same time, two “WHOA!”’s came from the backseat as James completed the sharpest U-turn in the history of the wheel. If Remus and Sirius had not had enough sense to stay as far to the right as possible, the car – whose wheels lifted a little off the ground – would have toppled over onto its side thanks to James’s wonderful maneuvering.


Jasmine had located the Potter’s owl and had just finished sending a quick letter to St. Mungo’s explaining the…situation…when the car pulled back into the driveway at an alarmingly fast speed as it screeched to a halt leaving black tire marks behind it.

Everyone watched in shocked amazement as James bolted out of the car towards Lily and attempted to carry her to the car. Under her weight, however, he ended up staggering awkwardly, but he did make it.

Jasmine had just managed to grab the suitcase and dive into the back of the car with Remus and Sirius as James placed himself in the car and backed out again.

Unfortunately for the driver of a car coming towards the driveway, James did not look both ways.

As James shot out into the street, the other driver turned so quickly that the only reason his car didn’t spin out of control was a large bush. The bush, however, had angled the car in such a way that the road leading to the hospital was impassable by anything wider than a bike.

James, noticing this, screamed “WHOA!” and went to hit the brakes but got the gas instead. Remus, acting more on impulse than instinct, leaned forward and grabbed the emergency brake. The cars ended up stopped with about five inches between them.


The muggle driver got out of his car and came over to yell at James for his stupid driving. He was only slightly taken aback when he noticed a pregnant woman in the front seat.

James was attempting to help Lily as her contractions got closer together, but Sirius, Jasmine, and Remus had told him to go and calmly talk with the muggle about the cars while they helped her. He didn’t want to, but he was told the Healers were on their way, and the look Jasmine gave him suggested his life depended on it.

The muggle was very taken aback, and embarrassed, however, when James stepped out of the car, still not wearing any pants. All he could do was stutter. James looked at the man quizzically until Jasmine nudged and whispered something to Sirius, who then opened Lily’s suitcase and found a shirt and pair of pants for James ‘just in case’.

Leaning out of the window with a mischievous grin on his face, Sirius said, “Hey, buddy, try these on,” as he tossed the pants to James.

James caught them with a “Huh?” and looked down. For the first time all morning, he realized he wasn’t wearing pants. “Heh, heh, heh.” James hastily pulled on the pants as his face began to turn red.
