Okay let’s get one thing strait. James Potter is a bit out there. And when I say a bit what I really mean is he is certifiably insane. I guess being the son of the famous Harry Potter could do that to a guy or maybe his mum enjoyed dropping him on his head when he was a kid was what made him a complete and utter mental case. For instance the first day at Hogwarts, also the day I met James, we where in charms class with a bunch of Slimy Slytherin’s when our teacher passed out a questionnaire. It had all the usual questions like ’what’s your favorite color’ and ’what’s you’re best memory.’ One of the questions was “What do you want to do when you grow up.” Like a normal person I put that I wanted to play quiddich for the Holy Head Harpies. James put down, and I kid you not, that he wanted to ‘conquer the world with and Army of flying monkeys.’ To say our charms professor was not amused would be a bit of an understatement. Either way though that was the day I began my odd and come what dangerous friendship with the eldest Potter son.
Back in sixth year we where all sitting in DADA with the Ravenclaws.
I was sitting in class waiting for the teacher to arrive and talking to my best friend James. Actually I was trying to convince him that locking his cousin Rose in a closet with Scorpius Malfoy was his worst idea to date. Which is saying something since he’s had some pretty awful ideas.
“James you are horrible! They would kill one another.” I scolded him wondering how much worse of a lunatic prankster he would be if I wasn’t his friend.
“Either that or they would shag already.” sniggered James. “Think about it you don’t hate someone that much unless you really want to shag their brains out.
“That’s disgusting.” but it sounded reasonable in Rose’s first year she confined in me that she thought he was cute. Though shortly after she began to hate him.
James’s retort was cut off by Professor Andrews walking into the class room. As he begins his lecture James starts pretending to fall asleep earning a few giggles from Amy Jordan the Ravenclaw slag ever time she laughs he winks at her. With a roll of my eyes I turn back to the lecture in time to here Andrews ask what Avada Kedavra is used for.
"IT DOES DEATH!" James yells with a huge smile plastered on his face.
Oh. My. God.
Freddie James’s cousin/other best friend, roars in laughter from the other side of the class room as well as several other students Even I am amused.
Yeah that one earned him a week scrubbing the kitchen floors.
Okay so there now you see how insane my friend is. I guess it’s a good thing because life never gets boring around him. EVER. James is literally always up to something or another. I was sitting in the common room reading a muggle book and enjoying the peace and quite that I so rarely get when James came down the stares and surprised the hell out of me. Why do you ask would I be surprised by him coming down the stairs? Because my charming old friend was wearing one thing and one thing only. A pair of socks. Yes he had just come down to the common room completely naked.
“Are you completely bonkers?” I yelled at him my face I could feel was getting hotter by the second and for some odd reason I could take my eyes off of him.
My yelling drew everyone’s attention and several people gasp one first year even fainted.
“Oi! Not even a little bit Brain! I’m completely sane.” He grinned from ear to ear.
“Yeah! Brianna why would you think we are insane?” Freddie asked and he was in the same state as James.
“Because your bloody naked? Did you forget to put your clothes on this morning?” I snapped at them.
“No love it’s naked Thursday.”
“It’s Tuesday.” I said shortly.
“Ah what is a name? Would a rose not smell so sweet if it had another one?” James asked misquoting Shakespeare horridly.
“JAMES SIRUS POTTER what the bloody hell is wrong with you?” uh oh that was Lily and even though she’s three years younger than her older brother she’s honestly a bit scary when she’s mad.
“Oi! What about Freddie.”
“JAMES SIRUS POTTER AND FRED BILLIUS WEASLEY PUT SOME DAMN CLOTHES ON NOW!” Lily yelled at the top of her lungs she looked an awful lot like her mother when she was angry and was apparently every bit as good at the bat boogey her mother.
“Or what little Red?” asked Fred smirking.
Yeah he probably shouldn’t have done that. With a flick of her wand the two boys where being attacked by bat bogeys and since they didn’t have any clothes on it was hitting them in places no boy ever wants to be hit. Needless to day James ran up the stairs with Freddie in tow.
I don’t think ‘Naked Thursdays’ will be a regular occurrence.
