I told Lily Evans that I loved her. What was I possibly thinking? I knew that she'd react that way, and just when things were getting better between us. It took me six years for her to say we were friends, and when she finally did, I blew it! I am the stupidest man alive.
I was sitting on stone steps near the Great Hall, being the pathetic individual that I am, regretting the three little words I had said to Lily. Three small words changed my whole day. It's incredible the impact those words made.
I saw Snivellus lying sprawled out, still unconscious. Lily must have gotten him good, either that or he is an incredible wimp. Not quite sure which, could be both. Well, the evil git looked in no condition to walk himself to Madam Pomfrey's so being the nice guy that I am, I levitated him there. Even a slimy prat like him deserved to be given medical treatment after a punch like that.
When I got to the Hospital Wing, Madam Pomfrey rushed over to him and gave me a stern look.
"Were you beating him up again James Potter?" Madam Pomfrey asked me.
"No, I found him like this near the Whomping Willow," I lied. I had to think of something.
"The poor dear, lucky he didn't shed any blood," she said.
She loved me and would believe anything I told her. After all, I did attain a lot of injuries during my days at Hogwarts. I left the Hospital Wing and walked off, dazed and not sure where I was going, when I heard a giggle protrude from a broom closet nearby. Sirius was definitely on the prowl.
Sure enough, a blonde sixth year Hufflepuff I recognized exited and walked towards her Common Room. I waited for my friend to leave the closet and when he did, I cast him a concerned look.
"What? We were playing hopscotch I swear," he said, acting defensive. I knew otherwise.
"It's not that. It's Lily," I said, feeling sadness just as her name was spat from my tongue.
"What'd you do now you dumb prat?" he asked, all too familiar with my Lily-behavior, as he liked to call it.
"I told her I loved her," I said sadly. He was walking and suddenly came to a halt. He looked at me with surprise.
"The L-BOMB? You dropped the L-BOMB on Lily Evans?" Sirius asked.
"It's not that big of a deal Padfoot," I lied. I knew it was. No Marauder had ever fallen in love, at least not until now.
"Never have you dropped the L-Bomb! I thought Lily Evans was a phase man," Sirius said.
"A pretty long phase Sirius. Plus, there's a first for everything," I said optimistically.
"Well, I gotta get to the Common Room. See you tomorrow," he said. I waved and started walking towards the Heads Room. I could still hear him mumbling 'The L-Bomb, what was he thinking?' I chuckled to myself. Of course I could rely on Sirius to make a huge deal over it.
I walked into the deserted Head Room. Lily had gone to the Gryffindor Common Room after all. I jumped in the shower and thought of my friends. I was lucky to have friends who would do anything for me, probably die for me. I knew they would never let me down.
A/N: This is just a short chapter. Up next: Lily's POV. A little more intresting than this one.
