I am excited. I am going to Hogsmeade tomorrow. With Lily Evans. Oooh the excitement!! Even though we have been dating for 3 months now, I still get excited to go to Hogsmeade with her. After waiting for 6 years, every Hogsmeade visit is exciting with her.
It was just after dinner and I was lying on my bed in the Heads Dorms.
Sirius, Remus and Peter are here too. Oooh, they're talking...I should probably listen to them.
"Oh my god Peter..stop with the cheese!" Remus said exasperatedly. Sirius let out a bark of laugter. I tuned them out. They were too boring.
Anyway...back to Lily. I love Lily. She's the bestest person in the world. She has gorgeous emerald eyes, and long red hair that comes down to her mid-back. I sighed happily. Sirius kicked me. I looked up at him angrily.
"Thinking about Lilykins?" he asks teasingly.
I might hit him. With a frying pan. I could conjure one up right now...hmm...where's my wand? Oh, it's on the dresser. It's too far. Oh well. Next time. I'm just going to look at him evilly. He laughed. I guess my evil looks aren't good enough.
"Lets go guys. Prongs is no fun when he's in Lily - mode." he said. Oh ha ha...very funny Sirius. Note the sarcasm. Remus and Peter laughed and followed Sirius out. I shrugged. What-eva! I settled down and fell asleep.
Ah. Hogsmeade weekend. There's nothing better. Especially since I was with my girlfriend, Lily Evans. Yeah, that's right. Be jealous! There was a slight wind in the weather, but other than that, it was perfect.
We were walking past the Three Broomsticks when it's door opened and
almost hit Lily. We turned around to see who did it when Lily let out a squeal and hugged the guy who almost knocked her flying.
"Mark! What are you doing here? You go to Drumstrang!" she asked, letting go of him.
I looked at him. He was the same height as me with dark brown hair and brown eyes, wearing jeans, a black shirt and a black coat. My eyes narrowed, he looked suspicious, But I just couldn't place my finger on why.
Probably because he hugged Lily a voice in the back of my head said. You always were the jealous type it added.
Shut up, I thought.
"I graduated last year. I'm with my girlfriend, Lucy" he said making room for a pretty girl with long blonde hair and blue eyes.
"Hi" Lily said to the girl, Lucy. "This is my boyfriend, James Potter" Lily introduced me with a smile. I grinned.
"Hey" Mark nodded. "You're that really good Quidditch player right?" My suspiciousness melted away. I smiled (in what I thought was a modest way) and didn't say anything. "Didn't Lily used to hate you?"...and it was back. My smile faded, and Lily spoke up.
"Well, James changed." she said, and I swelled with pride. I'd done it just for her too. I wrapped an arm around her waist, and felt awkward as I didn't really know this guy, and him and Lily were talking like best friends.
Lily and Mark talked for a while and before I knew it, they were saying their goodbyes.
"Make sure you owl this time ok?" Lily pressed.
"Yeah, I will. I promise" he reassured.
Lily smiled. "Bye then Mark, Lucy." she said.
"Bye" I added quickly.
"Bye guys" they said simultaneously.
Later on, Lily and I were on the way back to the castle in one of the horseless
carriages. "So...that Mark guy seemed nice." I said absently, stretching out on my side of the carriage.
"Yeah, he is" she replied, zipping up her coat.
"How do you know him?" I asked.
"Oh, we met back one summer when we both were on vacation." she answered, putting her feet up on the seat next to me. I nodded. "Yeah, we used to go out at one point" she added.
Okay, okay, I know I said they'd get longer...but it was kind of hard. I did try with this one though. Did you like it though? I didn't know what to do with this chapter, so I was kind of just flowing with it. Leave a review please! Wow, I'm shocked. Everytime I sign in, there's another review. Ahh I get so happy when I see them. You know...I could update a lot faster if I got a lot of reviews. *wink, wink*. Anyway, sorry, but I tried letting it stay 12+ but it didn't validate until I changed it to 15+ because I wrote bastard.
Well what are you waiting for?? The box down there is just calling you. Reader...write in me....click on me and write in me...
