Rating: MatureChapter Reviews: 5

Background:   Font color:  

“Well, breakfast was… interesting,” Sirius said sniggering.


I'm staring out into the night,
Trying to hide the pain.


“Oh yes! It was just peachy!” Lily exclaimed in a bright sarcastic voice.


“Do you still want to see Snape and Pettigrew?” Sirius asked.


“Umm… no. I saw what happened to Snape back in the Great Hall. I trust you to just tell me about Peter,” Lily replied.


I'm going to the place where love
And feeling good don't ever cost a thing.
And the pain you feel's a different kind of pain.


“Ok,” Sirius agreed shrugging.


As they began to walk back to the RR, Lily suddenly realized something. “Sirius?”




“When you showed me the memory of Remus. It turned out that someone had let Death Eaters in. But that didn’t happen in my world. So… why would that happen now?” Lily turned to Sirius. Her eyes were narrowed and were starring at him accusingly.


Well I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,


“I-I,” Sirius closed his eyes and let out a breath. “I let my cousin, Bellatrix in. Her husband and brother-in-law came with. It was Lucious and my idea,” he admitted softly.


“How-how-how could you do that?” Lily asked taking a step away from Sirius.


“I was 14! I was stupid! I-I regret it every day.”


“Yet you still hang out with the people that caused two kids death? Sirius, I know you! And-and HOW?!?!?!”


And where your love has always been enough for me.
I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.


“That is a question I am curious about, Miss. Evans,” a voice chimed in.


“Professor Dumbledore,” both students whispered in shock.


The man in question nodded in recognition. “Normally, I would be expelling and calling Aurors on you, Mr. Black. However, as the victims are already dead, I feel it is better to figure out what is going on between the two of you. And please, don’t try to lie. Two days ago you couldn’t stand each other, and now you’re suddenly best friends? I don’t normally get involved with student’s relations, but when something like this happens… care to tell me what has happened?”


I don't regret this life I chose for me.
But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.


“Could we, talk in your office, Professor?” Lily asked hesitantly.


“Yes,” Dumbledore agreed.


With that, the three went up to his office.  Dumbledore sat in the comfy chair behind his desk while Lily and Sirius stood frozen at the door.


Well I'm going home.
The miles are getting longer, it seems,
The closer I get to you.


“You may sit,” Dumbledore said, sounding slightly amused. Slowly, the two students walked to the seats. “Now, does one of you want to tell me what happened?”  


“Not really,” Sirius admitted with a laugh.


“Miss. Evans?”


I've not always been the best man or friend for you.
But your love, it makes true.


“This isn’t how the world’s supposed to be,” Lily whispered, starring at her hands in her lap.


“What do you mean?” Dumbledore asked curiously.


“I-I made a wish. And the wish was that this boy wouldn’t be born. Now, he doesn’t exist and everything’s wrong!”


And I don't know why.
You always seem to give me another try.


“Wrong? Wrong how?” Dumbledore asked.


“Where I’m from, me and Severus weren’t friends. Well… we WERE but in fifth year we had a fight that ended our friendship. And then Remus,” Lily closed her eyes and a tear rolled down her cheek. “He never died. And he didn’t die because Sirius was never a Slytherin. Speaking of Sirius, he wasn’t how he is here. He’s a Gryffindor who’s pretty much my brother. And Peter... well, I don’t know what he’s like here. I do know that he was best friends with Sirius, Remus, and him.”


So I'm going home,
Back to the place where I belong,
And where your love has always been enough for me.


“Pettigrew, in this world, is bullied by everyone. He has a few friends though, but all of them are bullied,” Sirius explained.


“Bullied by you?” Lily snapped.


Sirius hesitated.


“That’s what I thought,” Lily replied coldly.


“Who is this boy you wished to disappear, Miss. Evans?” Dumbledore asked urgently.


“James Harold Potter,” Lily said softly.


I'm not running from.
No, I think you got me all wrong.
I don't regret this life I chose for me.


Dumbledore slowly nodded. “That makes since. Harold and Julia Potter were supposed to have a baby on March 27th. However, a she had a miscarriage a month before the due date. No healer ever found out why.”


“But why did his birth affect everything?” Lily asked nervously.


“The Potter’s go to all of the pureblood balls, so, in theory, James and Sirius would have met. This could have caused Sirius to change views. And if Sirius changed views, he never would have been in Slytherin. If he was never in Slytherin, he wouldn’t have had the idea of letting Death Eaters into my school. If Death Eaters hadn’t been in the school, Amelia Bones and Remus Lupin would both be alive. Somehow, James would have befriended Peter and he would have real friends to stand up for him. One life, changes everything Miss. Evans. I hope you realize this,” Dumbledore said gravely.


But these places and these faces are getting old,
So I'm going home.
I'm going home.


“I do!” Lily choked out. “And I want to fix it! How do I fix this?”


Dumbledore’s eyes twinkled at the girl. “Tell the truth,” he said simply.


“What?” Lily asked confused.


“You wished that Mr. Potter would never exist. The only way, I believe, everything will go back to normal is to tell the truth,” Dumbledore explained.


Be careful what you wish for,
'Cause you just might get it all.


“I think I get it,” Lily said softly.


“Before you go, take this.” Sirius reached inside his pocket and pulled out a gold medallion on a chain. He walked to her chair and put it on her lap.


“What, what is it?” Lily asked, her eyebrows knitting together.


“My lucky medallion,” Sirius replied with a smile.


You just might get it all,
And then some you don't want.


“Thank you,” Lily whispered, before putting it in her pocket.


“And…” Sirius hesitated. “If it means anything, I am so sorry.”


Lily smiled before standing up so they were in front of each other. Suddenly, she threw her arms around him. “It means everything,” she replied while hugging him tight.


“Thank you sir,” she said, smiling at Dumbledore.


“Of course Miss. Evans,” he replied with a smile of his own.


Closing her eyes, Lily couldn’t help but feel she was like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. The only difference, she didn’t have the shoes. “I love James Potter,” she whispered. And then everything went black.


Be careful what you wish for,
'Cause you just might get it all.
You just might get it all, yeah.



A/N I hope you all liked it! I am SOOOOOO sorry I haven’t updated in forever! Right now I seem to be on an update high, lol. I updated one story twice, and now this! All in a matter of days, lol.
