*Starting a beginning
That arm, the strong and comforting arm that I had loved so long ago. Whenever he’d hug me or hold me I felt secure because I knew nothing would ever harm me. I thought that arm would always be there for me, holding me up when I needed it and keeping me strong. Yet when I woke up in St. Mungo’s, the arm and its owner were no where to be seen. James Potter had come back into my life for a small moment, and then vanished again. Potter hadn’t changed at all. His hair looked still uncontrollably messy. His eyes were still that marvelous shade of chocolatey brown, and his smile was just as dreamy as it had always been.
My heart throbbed and ached. It was like a missing piece of it had been returned for just a second and then ripped it away. Obviously he still didn’t care about me though. Cause he was no where in sight, he hadn’t even stuck around to see if I was alright. Though there was someone sitting on the edge of my bed who I was even more surprised to see. At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me then as things came more into focus I realized he really was there.
“Good Afternoon Miss Evans” he said
“Hello Professor Dumbledore, how have you been?” I hadn’t seen this man since one of the worst days of my life.
“Considering the circumstances I’m fine. It’s been quite awhile Miss Evans, too long.”
“I agree professor”
“Well firstly I would like to congratulate you.”
“Are you aware that you stunned 4 death eaters?”
“Did I?” I asked surprised “I thought I only got one or two.”
“Please call me Lily, Professor.”
“Lily, you have an extraordinary talent, and I’d like to offer you a job…”
I listened while Dumbledore explained about something he called “The order of the Phoenix”. He said it was an underground organization, separate from the ministry. Very “hush, hush”. It was dedicated to fighting against He-Who-must-not-be-named. He told me that they’ve already helped put several death eaters in Azkaban. He said me that it didn’t pay much and that would be dangerous, but seriously anything had to better than what I was living with now didn’t it? Much to his delight I accepted his offer; he’d send a member to start my training in a week or so. In the mean time I should turn in my 2 weeks notice at Three Broomsticks. I grinned at the thought of that.
Few days after I’d turned in my notice, the cute and adorably handsome Aaron Gablin showed up on my door step. He had been in Ravenclaw and a year ahead of me at school. He’d been quidditch captain of the Ravenclaw team and a pretty good beater too. James had hated him, I on the other hand had, had a slight crush on him in my earlier years. I embarrassedly looked down at what I was wearing. I had on a pair of sweat pants and a sweat shirt with the tower of Pisa on it. In my hand I held a candy bar, and I was pretty sure my hair hadn’t been brushed yet.
“Hello?” I stuttered
“Are you Lily Evans?” he asked
“Dumbledore sent me, I assuming you know why?”
“Of course, come on in.”
Aaron introduced himself and began explaining what we’d be doing. He told me he’d come over about an hour every day for the next week and we’d brush up on some of my defensive skills and charms.
Over that time Aaron and I became closer than I’d ever expected. He was the first guy I’d actually taken serious interest in, in the past 2 years. Even better, he seemed to have a thing for me too and after the last 4 nights we found ourselves having dinner together. He was a great guy, and incredibly sweet. His mind was smart, his hands were soft and strong, his eyes were blazing blue and his kiss was warm and comforting.
After our 7th session he gave me a portkey to Hogwarts and told me that I had to be at a meeting tomorrow at 10am. He kissed me goodnight and apperated out of my apartment.
