Never Hatred Always Love
Chapter 5: The Ball
After the girls ran up into their rooms to get changed, the boys went into theirs.
“Sirius, how can you get your hair to stay down like that?” James asked his best guy friend.
“I don’t know, maybe my hair is just cool!” Sirius told him.
“Some best friend you are!” James smirked.
“Well I thought Lily was your best friend!” Sirius smiled.
“Well you’re my best guy-friend she’s my best girl-friend!” James told him.
“Well soon she will be your actual girlfriend!” Sirius said.
“I hope so!”
“I can tell she has a major crush on you, probably as big of a crush as you have on her!” Sirius said putting on his dress robe over his shirt and boxers.
“Really?” James asked, still combing his hair.
Meanwhile in the girls room:
“Lily you look so beautiful!” Jewel told her best friend.
“Thank you, you look beautiful too!” Lily said.
And they were not just saying that to be nice. Jewels robe fit her perfectly and her blonde hair was up in plates on top of her head. Lily and her had bought little hair jewels and she had those in her hair too.
Lily had on light pink eye shadow that perfectly matched her robe, that flowed nicely along Lily’s small body. Her hair was down, and she had straightened it, then made prefect ringlets that went all the way down to her lower back.
“James is going to faint when he sees you Lils!” Jewel laughed.
“So will Sirius, when he sees you!” Lily said clutching her stomach, she was laughing so hard.
The girls walked down the stairs to meet their awed dates.
Lily walked up to James and closed his mouth.
He blushed slightly then held out his arm and said, “shall we?”
“Of course.” Lily took his arm and they walked down to the great hall together.
The great hall was decorated magnificently. The long tables were gone and in there place was a bunch of small tables big enough for eight people.
Lily and James and Sirius and Jewel sat down with Peter and Melissa and Remus and his date.
“Hello, I believe that we don’t know your name yet!” Sirius said to the pretty Ravenclaw.
“Hi, my name is Rita,” the girl said, “and you are?”
“Hi, I’m Lily, this is James, Sirius, Jewel, Peter, Melissa, and you already know Remus!” Lily said shaking the girl’s hand.
“It’s a pleasure; can I have a picture of all of you guys?”
“Sure why not!” James said.
“Ok, smile!” Rita said once they all posed.
She took the picture.
Everyone ate their dinner, as they were finishing up music started playing.
“Want to dance?” James asked Lily.
“Sure, I’d love to!”
The first few songs were fast and Lily and James laughed as he spun her around, they were dancing like they were in the 70’s!
Then a slow song came on.
James put his arms around her waist and she put her arms around his neck and leaned her head on his shoulder.
“I’m having fun with you tonight James, thanks!” Lily whispered in his ear.
“I’m having fun to Lils, thank you!” James whispered back.
At the end of the song James pulled Lily aside.
“Want to go on a walk?” He asked.
“Sure, I’d love to!” Lily said.
James took her hand and led her outside so they could walk around the lake.
They talked about school and summers and fun times.
James stopped and stared into the lake.
“What is it James?” Lily asked.
“Lily I have something I’ve been meaning to tell you.” James said taking both of her hands in his.
“What is it?”
“Lily, I’m..I’m...In love with you!” He said after taking a deep breath.
“I think I’m in love with you too, James.” Lily said.
“So uh, will you go out with me?” James asked, blushing, he was glad it was dark so she couldn’t see how red he was.
She stood on her tippie toes and kissed him passionately.
“Is that a yes?” James asked.
“Well let me think about that!” Lily laughed, “Um, I guess so!”
James picked her up and started tickling her.
“Put me down, haha” Lily said laughing.
James laid her down by a tree and sat next to her.
“I’m glad I have finally got the courage to ask you out!” James said.
“Me too James!” Lily said resting her head on his shoulder.
“We are going to be the cutest couple in all of the school!” James laughed.
