AUTHORS NOTE: Hey witches, wizards and warlocks! Sorry for all the previous gaps between updates, I’m trying to be better I promise. Haven’t had many James’s points of view in this story so I thought I’d start this one off with James. So remember don’t forget to review.
“Since when!!?” Padfoot yelled after knocking me to the floor. Hitting my head might I add.
“Since now you prat. Get off me you great lump.” I replied chuckling and shoving him off me to rub my sore head.
“And you didn’t even think to tell us? Your best mates? Your brothers? And I am not a prat or a lump!” He scowled. Remus, Lily and I just laughed.... Lily... Now my Lily, not just Evans anymore. At last after so long, finally perseverance had paid off. I was now the boyfriend of the girl of my dreams. I looked up at her and smiled. She smiled back and let out a small yawn.
“I wasn’t about to tell you in the middle of the best kiss of my life was I pads? You know I love you guys but it looks like someone’s tired and needs to get to bed. In fact all of us do if we so much as have a chance of getting this mess cleaned up by breakfast tomorrow.” I said glancing around the empty room.
There was glitter, streamers and cups everywhere. Not to mention scuff marks, the dinner tables and all the musical equipment and disco ball. This place was going to need a serious cleaning crew and a few hours of hard labour.
“Prongs is right we all need some rest... speaking of where’s Pete? Did he leave already?” Asked Remus, looking around for our little friend. It was true Pete was nowhere in sight. In fact I hadn’t seen Peter for a while.
“He’s either back at the dorm snoring his butt off or he got lucky and is off in a broom cupboard or the closest available abandoned classroom.” Sirius sniggered.
“Peter? Get lucky? Not to sound horrible or anything but well... since when has a girl ever been interested in him?” Lily blushed.
“He’s had this thing for a girl called Judy in our runes class for ages. Poor bloke nearly fainted when she said she’d see him at the ball. I saw him talking to her earlier. She’s not exactly a looker but she’s pretty decent. ” Remus replied smiling.
“Well good on him. I’m tired and my feet are bloody killing me. I’m off back to the dorm, you coming James?” Lily asked holing her shoes in her hand, looking at me. I felt my face heat up.
“Sure just let me grab my shoes...” I ran back and picked up my shoes. Then I left the hall hand in hand with Lily.
I soon felt my hand become sweaty wrapped around her small one. Great brilliant time to get a case of the nerves Prongs. I led us in through our portrait into our shared common room. No sooner had it closed behind us I felt Lily’s lips touch mine.
At first we kissed soft and slow. I let my hands run through her red hair. She soon sped up the tempo of our kiss and I felt her hands move down across my chest and around my back. I let my own hand wander down her side and back up again, leaving one hand still in her hair. My heart was beating at a million miles an hour but I didn’t care; this feeling right here was the best feeling in the world. I stepped backward, blindly trying to lead us to the couch. My ankles hit the base of the couch and we went sent backward onto it. Still never breaking our kiss. We kissed for a while longer and I felt her delicate hands working on my shirt buttons. I broke off our kiss.
“What do you think you’re doing Evans?” I whispered huskily, wiggling my eyebrows.
“What does it look like I’m doing?” She giggled. “Is it okay if I go take this off before we continue?” She asked gesturing to her dress. I nodded and she clambered off me and headed for the staircase to her room.
I lay there letting my heart pound in my chest. Letting my mind roll over all the possibilities of what could happen next. I loved Lils; there was no doubt about that. But did I want us to take things slow or fast? I didn’t really know. Part of me was saying that going slow was a good thing, the other that we’d waited long enough. I let out a deep sigh and tried to let my breathing go back to normal. I heard the light patter of her feet coming back down the stairs so I sat up.
She was dressed in her pj’s. Fuzzy flannel bottoms with tassels and a plain white t-shirt. Her hair cascaded over her shoulders. She was so beautiful I felt my heart leap up into my mouth. She came and sat beside me and looked at her lap.
“James? Can I say something?” she said quietly. I gulped and nodded yes.
“I...I love you.” She said, almost inaudible.
“I love you too flower” I replied instantly smiling.
“So what happens from here?” She asked.
“Whatever you want to happen. We go as fast or as slow as you want us to, our relationship is at your pace. I’ve waited years for this moment, and I hope we have many more. I never wanna loose you Lils.” I cupped her face in my hand.
“I know that I wanna go to your room and spend the night there... but I’m not ready for... ‘It’ yet. Is that okay?”
“Of course it is.” I kissed her nose and smiled. “Are your feet still sore?” She nodded so I scooped her up in my arms.
“James what on earth are you doing?”
“Carrying you, so your precious feet don’t hurt.” I carried her up my staircase and into my room. I placed her down on the bed and straightened myself up.
“I’m just going to the bathroom.” I slipped into the little ensuite and splashed water over my face and looked in the mirror. Yup this was definitely happening alright. I stripped off down to just my pants and walked out into the bedroom. Lily was now seated in the middle of my bed her knees hugged tightly into her chest.
“Are you okay?” I asked concerned.
“I’m fine. Just surprised with myself. I’m never this forward with relationships. It took me 3 weeks just to kiss the last boy I dated.”
“You don’t have to do this if you don’t want to...” I began.
“No I want to do this.”
“Okay... Err... do you mind I only have pj bottoms. I usually sleep shirtless...” I blushed, feeling the heat flowing through my body again.
“Turn around then” I said.
“Why?” She asked.
“Because I need to change into my Pj’s” I shuffled my feet on the spot. She laughed at me.
“James Potter are you afraid of letting me see you in your underwear?”
She giggled and shut her eyes while I changed quickly. I crawled up onto my bed and got beneath the covers. She got in and snuggled up against me. Her bare arms felt warm against my skin. I watched as she rested her head on my chest and closed her eyes. Her breathing became a slow rhythm in minutes and I knew she’d drifted off to sleep.
“Good night my flower” I whispered, kissing her hair before I too closed my eyes and went to sleep...
