“Nobody… ignore that I said that. I am just so mad at Severus I could scream!!!” I yelled.
“Well sweetheart you are screaming so you have that accomplished, but your dear best friends would love to know who helped you on the train”. Monique said slyly. I had 3 pairs of eyes starring me down.
“Nobody” I said. How the hell am I going to get out of this??!!! I really need to learn to keep my mouth shut.
“It must be Kisses at Midnight!!” Monique shouts.
“Why would you say that?” I said.
“Because you always tell us everything so this is one person because you don’t want us to connect the dots DUH” Monique shouted back.
Oh shit… I’m not ready for this. I bolt out of the room down to the common room.
I am hanging out in the common room and all of a sudden I hear a noise that sounds like a thousand horses running down the stairs. When I look to see what the commotion in I spy Lily running extremely fast away from her best friends. I am curious as to what is going on. I stand up.
“Prongs what’s up buddy?” Sirius asks
“Nothing I am gonna go lay down I have a headache”. I say and go get my invisibility cloak and the map. I have no idea what I am going to do, but my curiosity is killing me. I put the cloak on and look I find Lily on the map and her friends aren’t far behind. I rush out of the common room and look for her again. If I go through a few passageways so I can get to her faster. I am running as fast as I can. I fear something is wrong with her. I catch up to her when her friends are around the corner. Jump out cover her mouth and put the cloak on over us. She is shaking, but I hold her still and whisper “You owe me a kiss after this”.
She relaxes and her friends rush by.
‘Oh shit oh shit oh shit how the hell do I get out of this. What do I do??’ I run as fast as my legs will carry me and I have no clue what to do. I am not ready to spill about James because I have no idea how I feel about him. I know I like him. He has been my knight in shining armor, but is that the only reason? I just don’t want to talk and realize that’s all. I am still running and I hear the 3 of them in close pursuit. What do I do? What do I do? All of a sudden someone grabs me, covers my mouth, and throws a cloak over me. Now I AM PANICKING!!!
“You owe me a kiss after this” is whispered in my ear. Holy crap its James. I calm down as I watch my friends pass. He pulls me into an empty classroom.
“Care to share why in the world you are running from your friends?” he says with an eyebrow up. God he is cute.
“Umm I kinda almost spilled about us…” I look at my feet.
He steps closer and lifts my chin. I can smell his sweet breathe on my lips as he says, “Would that be such a bad thing?”
“Umm for now yes, but maybe soon I will say otherwise”. He then kisses me sweetly on the lips and my knees melt from under me.
“I can wait,” he says smiling, “but just curious why would it be so bad for them to know?”
He is making my head cloudy I can’t think. He is so close and holding me so tight. I never want to move. Why am I denying myself this again? Oh yea I don’t trust him yet… right.
“I am not ready for that just yet because I am not exactly used to not hating you yet” I giggle.
He smiles and replies, “I understand that, but think the sooner they know the easier this will be”. He kisses me again with indescribable passion. My knees melt and my head gets foggy. He pulls away and all I could think was wow…
“Wait how didn’t my girls see me??”
“Oh… umm promise to keep my secret?”
“This is an invisibility cloak”
He looked at me and said “Lets head back.”
On our way Professor Dumbledore finds us and says “I have great news the Head rooms are ready for you to move into. Your stuff is already there. Let me show you the way”
James is standing next to me smiling. I wonder what’s on his mind.
Wow she kissed me back. I kissed her and she kissed me back AGAIN. I wonder how far we can take this. Professor Dumbledore is leading us to our own room. Just her and I. I cannot believe this. I hope this goes farther. I am definitely ok with the secret if we have our own room.
He is smiling. Wow he has a great smile. Dumbledore shows us the entrance to our room. It is behind a tapestry that is honestly nothing special. Behind this there is a painting with one male and one female. As we approach them they look surprisingly familiar and at once I realize it’s US. Weird.
“Ok you too your current password is Firewhisky. If you are having people in your shared room make sure the other is aware. Finally, please do not tell anyone your password. That is between you two and your portrait”. Right then the James’ half of the picture winked and us and my counterpart shook her head laughing. The portrait swung open to reveal our new beautiful room.
“I hope you enjoy it” Dumbledore left as he allowed us to explore our new rooms by ourselves.
I walk in and I am stunned. It looks just like Gryffindor common room. I figured it would be a standard room. Maybe that is why it took a few days to let us have it. It was being customized. I am lost in my own thoughts when I feel arms around me. He stands behind me, but pulls me in close. I can once again feel every muscle and I love it.
He whispers; “Welcome home” and I smile. That has a nice ring to it.
However, I am not ready for that just yet I decide. I pull away and say, “I am going to check out my room”. I dart off to the right.
I sit down on my bed. I don’t know what to think. I used to hate Potter. Now I don’t? I wish my heart and head would stop fighting. I pause for a moment and look around the room. WOW. It is customized to me. It has my favorite colors everywhere, pink, black and white. The wallpaper is black and white roses from the ceiling to the floor. My bedspread matches this except every flower has traces of pink. The floor is a beautiful wood and in the corner I see a ballet bar. If I move the bed it’s a full studio!!! My desk is beautiful and there is a sign in the shelving. It reads “Request any book and you shall receive” I test this out with a book I read my first year here and there it is. It is my dream desk. I am in love with this room. It is perfect for me. I think this Head Girl gig is going to work out.
“Lily, hey Lily are you in here?” James says.
“I am in my room”
“I know can I come in?”
I think about it and say “Yea sure”.
He walks in and sits next to me on my bed. “Wow your room is so cool!!! Mine has Gryffindor and Quidditch stuff all over. I love these customized rooms.”
“Me too” I reply. I do love it, but I have also never been so nervous. What is going on with me...
“Do you want to stay here, go in our common room or Gryffindor common room?” James asks.
“I think I need to dance” I said.
He looks confused and asks “Are you alright Lily?” He starts walking toward me again. All I can think of if he gets any closer I WON’T BE!!!
“Yes of course,” I say, “I just need to clear my head.”
He leaves and I get my room ready.
