In the 5th Harry Potter book, you get to see a past clip in which James was
using his magic to hang Snape upside down in the air. Lily, not liking
James at all in this time, comes storming in to Snape's rescue. Sadly,
this clip is cut short by Snape pulling Harry away. I am writing this
story about what Lily does after walking away that day. Enjoy!

The Trouble With James
"Oh that James Potter. Who does he think he is to torture the innocent all
because he is bored." Lily Evans had just walked away from an awful
confrontation with James but it didn't seem to bother her in the least.
After all, what did she care if he did something to get himself expelled.
"Lily!" Monica, her best friend, came running towards her. "What was all
that about? You should know by now that confronting James gets you no
where. In fact, I am starting to think that your angry outbursts make him
like you more!"
Lily sighed, knowing that her best friend was right. "He asked me out again
Monica. Why does he even bother? He knows I despise him with all my
Monica shrugged and locked her arm around her best friend. "Oh, it doesn't
matter. Let's grab our brooms and run down to the pitch real quick before
dinner. It's been awhile since we've flown."
Together they lifted their hands and shouted, "Accio Broom!" Two brooms
shot from the Entrance Hall doors and right into their hands. The two
girls jogged down to the pitch, the confrontation with James slipping right
from Lily's mind.
The day was gorgeous. Sunny without a cloud in the sky. Although it was
very warm, there was a continuous breeze flowing over the trees. Lily and
Monica both mounted their brooms and began circling the pitch, picking up
speed. Neither of them flew very often and it took a few laps to rekindle
Lily was just getting ready to try a roll when she heard Monica let out a
little cry. "Lily! Someone's bewitching my broom!" Lily turned to see
Monica's broom swinging back and forth so violently that Monica was
struggling to stay on. Lily looked around for help and then noticed some
familiar faces below her. There stood James Potter and Sirius Black, both
with wands raised towards Monica.
As Lily landed, she could feel her face turning red with anger. "James and
Sirius, you stop it right now! You could hurt her!" Sirius smiled in a
sick sort of way paying no attention to her. James, on the other hand,
pulled his wand down and walked towards her. "I'll tell Sirius too bring
her down safely when you agree to go out with me."
Lily's anger grew so deep that what she did next, she would regret later.
Quicker than James could open his mouth, Lily had pulled out her wand and
stunned him. The curse was lifted from Monica's broom in a second because
Sirius lost concentration and turned to Lily. The two of them stood there
for what seemed like an hour, wands pointed.
"Lily, it's not worth it. Let's go." Monica had landed safely on the ground
and was now trying to pull Lily away. Sirius was definitely not ready to
let it go. He found his moment and yelled, "Stupefy!" The stun jinx caught
Lily right in the chest and knocked her flat on her back. Sirius smirked.
"Now, we don't want her waking up too soon now do we? Stupefy!" The jinx,
once again, hit her right in the chest causing her body to convulse.
Monica let out a scream so loud that people came running towards the pitch.
Sirius lifted James, who was now starting to come around, and drug him off
Professor McGonagall, who had been enjoying a quiet rest under a nearby
tree, was the first to reach the girls. "Miss. Garner! Why did you scream?"
Professor McGonagall didn't have to wait for an answer because at that
moment she noticed Lily. "Oh dear. We must get her to the Hospital Wing
right away. She doesn't look too good. Who did this dear?" But Monica
couldn't answer her. She had suddenly became very lightheaded. She slipped
