AN: I was thinking that I was going to make this as a sequel to “Inside my Daughter’s Bathroom” but I got a much better idea. Let me know what you think. Pretty please leave me a review. Also I’ll try to make the other chapters longer than this. Oh and before I forget this is my first Lily/James story. Tell me how I am at it.
My name is Edward Evans. About thirty years ago I married my wife Kendra, and we have two daughters, Petunia and Lily. They don’t get along, and Petunia seemed to have gotten it into her head that Lily has always been my and her mother’s favorite. That caused her to rebel and run off with a man that I can’t stand. Dursley. Some day he’s going to get it. Someday. However right now I have more important things to worry about.
When I say more important things, I mean the other daughter to worry about. When Lily was eleven years old we received a letter telling us that she was a witch. Kendra and I were never more proud. If memory serves Petunia just scoffed and went back to her toast. That was I think the beginning of my eldest daughter’s rebellion. That was probably due to the fact that her mother and I started to focus on Lily a lot more than we did her. Now that I think about it that was probably the reason the Petunia always hated her younger sister after that. She was jealous of the red head.
Like I said before though, Petunia isn’t the main concern right now though. When Lily came home from her first year we listened to her scream about this boy named Potter. Apparently he had bothered her to no end throughout the entire year. She couldn’t stand him. These speeches continued until her fourth year. That summer she came home and told her mother and I that this Potter had asked her out five times. Each time she turned him down. Her mother just smiled and told her that the boy must like her a lot. Lily made a face to those words, so I chose not to respond to that.
These constant ask outs and turn downs kept up until Lily’s seventh year. Then she finally caved. In the letters she sent she talked about how, as she now called him, James had matured so much. She told us that he was sweeping her off her feet. He was apparently being quite the gentleman. They were dating. When Kendra saw the look on my face after Lily’s letters had delivered this news, she just smiled and told me that they were just childhood sweethearts. We were probably never going to have to meet this boy. They would most likely break up before or at Graduation.
Unfortunately though we couldn’t make it to Lily’s Graduation because of Petunia. She was moving out and there was a major fight between her and her mother. Poor Kendra couldn’t even get out of bed, let alone make a journey across the country. Lily was very understanding though. When I told her that, she just smiled and said not to worry about it because we could just meet James later. I was too concerned with my wife to notice that they were still together, and that if she was planning on introducing us to him that would mean they weren’t showing any signs of breaking up anytime soon.
Once she got home though I didn’t hear a word from Lily unless it was about James Potter. Her mother could instantly tell that she was desperately in love with the boy. When I asked her what she was planning on doing with the rest of her life, Lily said that she had an interview with someone in the Departments of Magical Games and Sports. However that wasn’t what her mother was concerned with. They would sit around and talk about her boyfriend. I didn’t have the guts to tell Kendra that she wasn’t helping things, so the two of them sat by the fire and gossiped away most of the summer.
That wasn’t the worst of it though. Earlier this week Lily came back from her interview and told her that she got the job at the Ministry. I couldn’t have been more proud. Then she told us that she started next week. However that wasn’t the only news that she brought back. Her mother and I were also informed that she had bumped into Potter, or James I guess, as she was leaving, and he was there for his auror training. The two of them had a quick conversation. She told us that he was wondering if he could come over for dinner anytime soon. Lily told us that he was really eager to meet us. This time I picked up the signal.
Before I could protest though Lily and Kendra had decided that James was going to be coming over for dinner, at what was then next week, but is right now five minutes. At the moment I am standing in the living room, tapping my fine shoes on the wood floor, and checking my watch every thirty seconds. Kendra is in the kitchen working on the best dinner she’s made since we celebrated out 25th wedding anniversary. Tonight Kendra’s menu consists of roast beef, mashed potatoes, and peas. That is all to be accompanied by appetizers of soup, bread, and salad.
I could hear the click of Lily’s heels on the steps. I turned around to see my youngest baby doll coming down the steps from her room. She looked unusually lovely. Her curly red hair was bouncing off her black dress and her strangely green eyes seemed even more vivid than usual. Once she’d reached the bottom of the steps she looked at me as I checked my watch one last time. Looking back up at her she smiled at me. It was one of her pleading “Please be nice to him Daddy” looks. I just nodded and smiled back. However before either of us could say anything the doorbell rang. Lily went towards the door, and Kendra came out of the kitchen. I looked at my watch. 7:30 on the dot. The boy was right on time.
