James climbed out of the black carriage helping a shaking Lily out in front of carriage, followed by Sirius, helping her out from behind. Lily shook them off, looping her arm with Minne's they walked inside. Sirius looked irrited at Lily, "Why is she just shoving us off, I'm going to go get her." James grabbed the back of Sirius's slippery nylon robes, "Dude, she needs her best friend right now."
Lily layed her head against Minnie's satin robe covered shoulder, Minnie patted her auburn hair. Lily pulled her head away from Minnie's shoulder, "I'm acting like such a priss, dammit, I hate Tom Riddle, I am such a fuc-"
"Lily, don't cuss, everyone hates Tom, you have every right to be scared of him."
"No, it's not ok," Lily stormed back to Remus, taking his arm and pulling him aside.
"Lily, whats up?" Remus said, slightly taken aback by Lily coming to him instead of James or Sirius.
"Am I a priss, I mean really."
"Lily, chill, James wouldn't date a priss, you know that, I know that, and Tom knows that, you and James got something stronger than Tom. But you have have every reason to be afriad of him, he has tried to-erm-rape you how many times? And no doubt he was trying to in that carriage, he definaly would have if you and James hadn't performed that spell. You had better just stay out of his way, he offiasly isn't afriad of Dumbledore," Remus said gently, laying his large hands on Lily's small shoulders. She shook him off, no one was helping.
Peter scurred between legs, sniffing around, a few third years screamed as the rat ran by. Smelling a farmilar leg he climbed up the long muscular leg, jumping on the cotten robe hem and onto the slopeing shoulder of Tom Riddle.
"Good, Peter what took you so long?" Tom said taking Peter in his hand.
Lily sat down at the long Gryfinndor table. Golden plates and goblets lined the table. The three other tables around her, the long teacher's table at the top of the Great Hall. Looking up the encanted ceiling, she could see a purpleish black blanket-like sky, covered with sparkling dimond stars. James sat down on one side of her, "Baby, are you ok?" Lily smiled, "I'm hungry, I wonder whats for dinner."
"Sweetie, are you ok?" James asked again.
"I want some pie," Lily said happily, after thinking of she wanted to eat.
"Lily, are you ok?" James asked, grabbing Lily shoulders and makeing her face him.
"Do you think they'll have cherry pie?" Lily asked, bluntly ignoring the question.
"Baby, please tell me," James pleaded.
"You want to know the truth James? Well, every little scuffle I get in you run to the resuce, save me. No one thinks I can stick up for myself. But, I can James. I love you, but I want someone who will love me, not just feel like he has to be there so that Tom won't have me to himself. Well, James, that's not what I want," Lily broke down.
"Lily I'm so sorry," James said hugging her.
Lily nodded crying and kissed James' neck.
