March passes in a whirlwind and we are about to approach the most dangerous birthday yet. It is Sirius Black’s birthday. Not only does he plan to party all night long (Thank goodness it is on a Friday), but it is also April 1st and every year he tricks the Marauders into a crazy plan. James and I are currently studying in our room and I remember what date is about to arrive...
“James what is Sirius planning this year?” I ask worriedly.
“Honestly sweetheart he learned his lesson with your birthday. He just wants to throw an insane party in the tower. It shouldn’t be that big of a deal thank goodness.”
“Why not in the room of requirement?”
“Probably because he doesn’t want the party to end by curfew.”
“Oh lord” I reply.
“Yea. By the way make sure you check your clothing, shoes, everything before you touch it on his birthday.”
“Sirius pulls at least one prank on each person he considers a friend every year. He is very creative and sometimes will set up the prank with you standing in the room and you have no idea.”
“Oh lord. You tell me this with his birthday beginning only hours away!!”
“Lily sweetie at least I warned you”
“Ugh!” I throw my hands up in frustration. I walk into my room and quickly look around and see nothing yet. I crawl into bed to go to sleep. A few hours later…
“What’s going on?” I yell and look in front of me. There is a firework display that is making an absurd amount of noise that reads, “IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! To get this to stop you must come and wish me Happy Birthday in Gryffindor Common Room”.
I am going to kill him in Gryffindor common room more like it. I walk out of my room and see James.
“Oh no did he get you too?” he said.
“Yep. Let’s go visit the moron. You might want to hold my hand to restrain me from killing your best friend on his birthday”
“Got it” he grabs my hand and we walk to the tower.
We walk in and everyone is standing around a gleeful Sirius singing Happy Birthday. James and I join in at the end.
“Babe can you please turn that thing off I am so tired” Monique whined.
“Happy Birthday to me” he smiled. We could hear the noise had stopped.
“Night” James and I mumble as we leave. We get back to the tower and we head straight to bed. This is going to be a very long day…
I woke up at a proper hour now. I get a shower and I step out. I look into the mirror.
“AHHHHHH WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?!”
James runs in and stops at the door.
“Oh Lils I am so sorry”
I look back in the mirror to my Acid Green hair and I begin to get infuriated.
“James go kill Sirius for me please”
“Umm,” he hears a tapping on the window and Pixie flies in. The note read LILY DON’T USE YOUR SHAMPOO! SIRIUS TURNED OUR HAIR GREEN!!! Us
“Apparently, he got all the girls with this one”.
“Oh yea I feel so much better now” I snap back.
“Sorry Lils” he left the room and I hear, “COME ON MAN!”
I run in and see an empty closet.
“He took everything, but my underwear”
“Ok I feel a bit better now”
“Thanks dear” he said with sarcasm dripping from his lips.
I get dressed and put my hair in a ponytail. James waited for me in his boxers. Man did he look good... Focus Lily.
“Off to breakfast?” I say.
“Yea, if I don’t I will never get my clothes back and you would never get your hair back.”
We walk down to the Great Hall and hear sniggering. Girls are starring which I hate. Sirius is standing at the entrance with James clothes.
“You are an idiot birthday boy” James said while getting dressed. Sirius smiled back proudly.
“Sirius, please can you put my hair back?” I begged.
“Sure my favorite flower” I rolled my eyes as he said a few quick enchantments.
“Done” he said. I ran to the bathroom. I was back to normal for now.
I stomp over to the table, “Black if you pull one more prank on me I will do my Head Girl job properly and cancel your party before it begins.”
“You wouldn’t?!!!” he shrieked.
“Test me Black. I dare you.” I respond as menacingly as possible.
“Ok I swear I won’t” he said looking frightened.
The rest of the day went by quickly with only a few small pranks. None were to me of course. It came close to 8 which is when the party would begin. The boys went and got all the butterbeer and firewhiskey you could imagine from Hogsmeade. The girls and I went down to the kitchens and talked to the house elves. They were thrilled to help and brought us all the food we could possibly carry. We brought it back to the tower and the party began. By the time it was 10 o’clock more than half the room was struggling to walk and talk. James and I didn’t have much to drink in case something happened. By the time it was midnight Sirius was passed out on a couch. This resulted in the party ending and nothing bad happening thank goodness. The boys brought Sirius up to bed and the girls cleaned the common room. The things you do for your friends. Finally around 1 in the morning James and I were walking back to our dorm. We kiss and part for the night. I clean up the common room and I get to our box. I begin to read all of the letters again. I tear up a little, he really does love me. I walk back to my room and search in the bottom of my trunk. I find the two things I was looking for one was a preventative pregnancy potion and the other my lingerie. I put on my lingerie that I saved for when I knew I was ready to give myself to another. It is an emerald babydoll outfit. I freshen up my makeup and put a brush through my hair. James is changing into sweatpants and no shirt. I walk up behind him and hug him from behind.
“Hello Gorgeous” he responds and turns to kiss me, “Lily you look amazing.”
“Glad you like it” I say as I push him back onto the bed. We began to snog as we never have before. We clung to the other as if we didn’t have another day. James’ lips left mine and he began to suck on the sensitive part of my neck. He untied the front of the babydoll outfit and it fell off me with ease. He began to kiss lower on my body and I ran my fingers through his hair and all over his back. He begins to kiss my breasts in a way that sent small fireworks going through my brain. I pull him back up to my lips so I can pull his pants off of him. He always looks so perfect when lying next to me like this. He then kisses down my body again and removes my knickers with his teeth. We began to kiss again and I tell him to sit against the back of the bed. We snog as I begin to move my hips on top of him that makes him moan against my kisses and all of a sudden he pulls back…
“Lily what are you trying to do exactly?”
“Make love to you” I reply shyly, “Don’t you want to?” I say as I look into his eyes.
“Lily, are you sure? I know you were nervous before…” he trails off.
“James, I know I will never love someone as much as I love you. Unless you decide otherwise I am spending the rest of my life with you. I have taken the potion and I want you right now. Are you going to deny me that?” I reply cheekily. He immediately captured my lips and began to snog me as he never had before. His hands were running themselves all over my body and soon we became one. It was an experience I could never describe I just knew at the end we were meant for one another. I now am lying cuddled up next to him and we are looking into each other’s eyes. I smile and a small tear escapes my eye.
“Oh no Lily did I hurt you? Were you not ready?” he says in a panic.
I smile and reply, “No, no James hunny. I am crying a little because I have never been so happy in my entire life. I love you James Potter.”
“Oh Lily,” he holds me close, “I love you more than you will ever realize.”
With that we fell asleep in each other’s arms. Life could not be more perfect.
