Chapter one: I Could Be Your Girlfriend
Disclaimer: I (sadly) do not own anything to this story. The wonderful Harry Potter Universe belongs to the spectacular J.K Rowling. Not to mention the lyrics to “Girlfriend” belong to Avril Lavigne.
James sat in the warm, Gryffindor common room, trying to fight the drowsiness that was overcoming him. “Never again,” he thought to himself referring to the pile of homework he had to finish by tomorrow.
“Told you so…” Remus had said earlier with a huge grin plastered on his face, “This is what you get for playing Quidditch all day long and not…what were your words exactly? Oh wait I remember: ‘Not giving a damn about your homework.”
“Shut up.” James retorted dryly, “If you’re my friend you would help me. I’m endanger of failing here!”
“I am your friend, Prongs, and I will always be there for you…just not tonight because it’s the first day we haven’t had homework.” Remus said.
“You think you’re so funny.” James snapped.
“Um...actually yes, yes I do.” Remus snickered and went upstairs.
That conversation was four hours ago, and James still wasn’t close to finishing.
‘Hey, Hey, You, You
I don’t like your girlfriend.
No way, No way,
I think you need a new one.
Hey, Hey, You, You
I could be your girlfriend.’
“James, you’re still up…what a pleasant surprise.”
“What the-“ James started to mutter, turning around, his eyes landing on Miss Lily Evans.
But that wasn’t the best part.
Miss Lily Evans was only in…her undergarments?
“Bloody hell…” James whispered, a grin spreading across his face.
“So...I woke up because I had this extraordinary dream, want to hear about it?” Lily grinned walking over to sit on the couch beside James.
James opened his mouth to speak but no words could escape his lips.
How was that Lily Evans, EVANS, was talking to him, Potter? The calculations didn’t add up. She hated him. He loved her.
Lily giggled, “of course you do. So I dreamt that you broke up with your skanky girlfriend, Trisha, and dated me.”
James nodded, not able to comprehend this at all.
This was unreal.
“You know I really don’t like her. She’s a fake. You deserve better.” Lily said slowly, scooting closer to James.
‘I know that you like me.
No way, No way
You know it's not a secret
Hey, Hey, You, You
I want to be your girlfriend.’
“Like…who?” James said, scooting away from Lily.
This was preposterous. Lily Evans couldn’t like James Potter. Why just yesterday she cursed him out in front of everyone.
“I think you know.” Lily winked.
‘You're so fine
I want you to be mine
You're so delicious
I think about you all the time
You're so addictive
Don't you know?
What I can do
To make you feel alright’
James nodded, “Yeah, I know. But Padfoot and I don’t really go that way. We tend to go after girls you know? Although…the two of us would make a hot couple.” James said sarcastically.
“Um...excuse me?” Lily said, taken aback, “I was talking about me, idiot”
James laughed, “But you hate me, remember?”
“No silly James, that’s called playing hard to get. I think about you all the time. Sometimes…I draw snitches and put your initials in them.” Lily blushed.
“Umm…I don’t know what to say.” James said truthfully. Well this is odd.
“You could say you want to be my boyfriend,” Lily said.
“But I have a girlfriend already…” James answered offhandedly looking at any but Lily. Half clothed Lily. Half Naked Lily.
I think you know
I'm damn precious.
And hell yeah!
I'm the mother fucking princess.
I can tell you like me too,
And you know I'm right.’
“So I’m not good enough for you?” Lily asked pouting.
“No, you’re great.” James rushed out.
Lily grinned, “Well then, you don’t like my personality?”
“No, it’s good too.” James laughed.
“So you know I’m right, right?” Lily asked.
‘She's like so whatever,
You can do so much better.
I think we should get together now,
And that's what everyone's talking about.’
“That you should break up with your girlfriend and go out with me silly boy.” Lily replied.
“But she didn’t do anything.” James responded automatically.
“Except date every other guy in the school while with you.” Lily stated.
“Sh-she didn-didn’t.” James stuttered.
“Umm…sorry babe, but she kind of did. She still is making her rounds.” Lily answered, “Everyone knows, no one would consider you a whore if you hooked up with me.”
‘I can see the way,
I see the way you look at me.
And even when you look away,
I know you think of me.
I know you talk about me all the time.
Again and again’
James still didn’t look convinced.
“I see the way you look at me, you know, I’m not oblivious. I look at you sometimes too.” Lily said softly moving ever closer. “I know you constantly talk about me too, Remus tells me.”
“This is true, but why the sudden change of heart, Evans? Is this some big prank?” James asked.
“I told you, I was playing hard to get, but now it’s disappointing. I want to be easy to get.” Lily grinned.
‘So come over here…
And tell me what I wanna hear.
Better, yet, make your girlfriend disappear!
I don't wanna hear you say her name ever again.’
“If Trisha walked in right now, oh man this would be awkward.” James laughed.
James was sitting in quite the predicament. Lily Evans, with her undergarments only mind you, was sitting next to a taken James Potter.
“Can you just shut up about her already?” Lily complained, “I bet she thinks the same things as she’s making out with other guys every night.”
‘In a second you'll be wrapped around my finger.
'Cause I can, cause I can do it better.
There's no other, so when's it gonna sink in?
She's so stupid, what the hell were you thinking?’
“But I can’t help it. You’re like…not clothed, and I’m like…”
But James never got to finished because Miss feisty Evans pressed her lips upon his.
She quickly ended it however much to James' disappointment.
“My bad…I forgot…you obviously don’t want me.” Lily said icily and got up.
James, who thought he was going through cardiac arrest after what just happen exclaimed, “Wait…screw Trisha. You’re right. She’s like…so whatever. You’re amazing!”
Lily blushed, “You mean…not screw Trisha right?”
“Who’s Trisha?” James asked standing up and walking over to Lily, leaning in to kiss her-
“JAMES, BLOODY HELL!!” Sirius shouted.
James shook his head, “What the-Where’s- What? Why are-Where the- How?”
“Anytime now,” Sirius snapped.
“What are you talking about?” James asked, looking at Sirius seeing his hands were around his shoulders, “BLOODY HELL? WHAT HAPPENED?” James said withdrawing them.
“Umm…I don’t know. I came downstairs because it’s umm…morning and you like were talking to yourself or something and…yeah...” Sirius replied.
“You…mean…I was sleeping?” James said looking downcast.
“I sure hope you were.” Sirius snorted.
“So…Me and Evans weren’t about to engaged in snogging?”
“No, you were probably dreaming. Evans would never make out with you, and judging on your girlfriend’s face, who’s standing behind, neither would she. Oh, and for the record, neither would I.” Sirius said walking away.
James gulped, slowly turned around, “Hey Trisha.”
A/N: So call me crazy, but i just got this random idea as I was listening to the song. And then the rest sort of "flowed" out. So what did you think?
