As usual please review, means a lot
Lily ran the brush through her hair, detangling the knots, which had formed, from all the tossing and turning that night, but it did not, however, detangle the knots in her stomach.
She had a problem. Lily had agreed to go to Hogsmead with both James Potter and Jordan Lloyd.
Deciding she would deal with the situation when it arose, she went to her wardrobe to choose something to wear. Seeing as the weather was good, she chose her denim skirt and white top, which had lots of tiny blue swallows on it.
She did up the buckles on her brown sandals and put on some eye makeup, grabbed her bag, then dashed out of her room and into the head’s common room, bumping straight into James Potter.
“You ready to go yet?” he enquired, ruffling his already messy hair.
“Um, can we meet there? Because I’ve got to run to the Gryffindor common room to help Kelsie with something.” Lily lied, looking down at her feet.
“…yeh, if that’s what you want” he replied, looking a little crestfallen.
“Thanks” She said, rushing out of the common room and down the corridor.
Just as she reached the portrait of the fat lady, the very boy she was looking for came up behind her and placed his hands over her eyes.
“Guess who?” The deep voice breathed in her ear.
“I have no clue!” Lily replied innocently.
Jordan removed his hands and draped an arm around her shoulders.
“Shall we be off?” he asked, leading Lily towards Hogsmead.
* * *
The Hogshead was crowded. Lily was sat next to Jordan whose arm was now around her waist. Jordan had decided that he wanted to show her off to his friends and so, Lily was sat in amongst a group of at least 10 boys, and it wasn’t the most comfortable situation she had ever been in. The boys were sharing stories from parties they had attended and their drunk antics.
Just when Lily thought she couldn’t take anymore, James Potter walked in the door. Her situation had just gone from bad to worse.
“Hey. Hey, Potter! Come join us!” one of Jordan’s friends shouted.
James strolled over, only to find Lily sat with Jordan. He managed to hide whatever emotion he felt, because his facial features portrayed nothing.
“Are you going to join us?” Jordan asked, stroking Lily’s side; which was his way of silently marking his territory.
James Re-evaluated the scene in front of him “no thanks, I was meant to be meeting someone, but they haven’t showed yet, so I should probably go and find her”
“Suit yourself. Who is this girl anyway?” Jordan shrugged, taking a swig of his butter beer.
“Oh, no one you know well.” James muttered before leaving the three broomsticks, and Lily could tell from his clenched fists that he was angry.
“Hey, you boys wouldn’t mind if I came back in a little bit, would you? I’ve got to go ask James something.” Lily asked, fluttering her eyelashes.
“That’s fine, let me walk you to the door” Jordan offered, slipping his hand around hers.
He opened the door for her, then pulled her into a hug.
“We’ll be here all day, so take your time… but I’ll miss you” he added, leaning in, to kiss her.
Lily panicked and turned her face away, so that he only kissed the top of her head.
“See you later” Lily shouted, walking off into the high street.
She had barely gone 3 steps, when she realised that James was stood at the edge of the path, which led to the shrieking shack, watching her.
“James!” She called, walking in his direction, but he had turned around and started along the path which lay in front of him.
Lily began to run after him, drawing many strange looks from the people around her.
After chasing him for 5 minutes she finally caught up to him. James was sat on the dusty ground, his back against a tree. His knees were pulled close to his chest, and he looked like a little boy.
“James…” Lily began, her voice cracking.
“No, it’s fine Lily, it’s not like we’re going out so why don’t you run along back to your boyfriend and leave me alone.” James interrupted, getting up and placing both his hands on Lily’s shoulders, in an attempt to push her, gently, away.
Anger suddenly began to boil her blood. Now he was being unfair! He had no right to get moody and upset, just because she was sat with another boy!
“I’m sorry James but you don’t need to get so upset! It’s not a big deal” Lily argued, not budging.
James’ eyes widened in shock. “Lily! I’m in love with you! How can I not get upset when I see you sat with another boy, who I know doesn’t know you like I do and doesn’t deserve you! He doesn’t know that you constantly worry that you’re not working hard enough, and that you wish things were better between you and your sister. He doesn’t realise that you’re the most beautiful girl in the world, and that your birthday is the 30th of January…” James shouted, his glasses flashing.
Listening to her heart, rather than her head, Lily cupped James’ face with her hands, and on tiptoes, kissed him briefly on the mouth.
Shocked James pulled away and touched his lips with the tips of his fingers. He looked at the girl in front of him. Currently stood with her arms still slightly outstretched and a confused look on her face, and he was determined to make her, his.
Taking a couple of strides forward, he wrapped his arms around her, then pressed his forehead against hers. For a moment James just looked into her eyes, but then he captured Lily’s lips with his own.
A little further down the path stood Kelsie and Sirius, mouths agape with shock. They had just come back from the shrieking shack, because Sirius wanted to scare Kelsie enough, so that she would hold onto him and rely on him to keep her safe.
“Are you crying?!” Sirius exclaimed, looking down at Kelsie, who’s eyes had filled with tears and a wide smile spread across her face.
“Maybe, but isn’t that one of the most beautiful things? I just know they’ll be together till the end.” She replied squeezing his hand.
Sirius nodded in agreement and looked down at his best friend, whose arms were encircling the red headed girl he was kissing. And all he could think was how he wanted that with Kelsie.
He turned the girl in front of him around, and lifted her chin so she was looking into her eyes. Then he kissed her.
