1My name is Lily Evans. I go to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and I'm in my 7th year. I'm so excited because I got Head Girl! Its been my dream to be Head Girl ever since I found out there was one. I wonder who the Head Boy is? Well anyway, right now going into Kings Cross Station to leave for Hogwarts.
When I got through the barrier I turned around to say goodbye to my parents and Petunia, my sister.
"Bye, sweetie, I love you and have a good year!", my father said. He was always nice to me about going to Hogwarts but I could tell he was uncomfortable with the whole thing.
"Oh bye my dear, I love so much", my mother said as she hugged me goodbye, "We'll see you at Christmas. Remember to write".
"I will Mum", I answered.
Then I turned to Petunia.
"Bye freak. Home will be wonderful without you there to embarrass my friends", Petunia said.
"Well if that's what you think", then I thought I better not stoop to her level so I added, "I love you, see you at Christmas". Petunia just turned away from me.
I waved a final goodbye to my parents, and stepped onto the platform and wove my way through the mob of people. I put my luggage on the train and walked towards my friends compartment. Then, I saw a messy mop of black hair and a pair of hazel eyes staring right at me. Oh great, James Potter!
"Hello my love, how was your summer", James Potter said much to my annoyance.
"Go away Potter, I'm trying to get to my compartment thank you very much!", I yelled trying to keep my temper in check.
James Potter was standing right in front of me blocking my path to the compartment where my friends were waiting for me! That arrogant toe-rag of a boy never leaves me alone! Why me of all people, Ugh!
"Sorry Evans, have a nice train ride with your friends", Potter said politely.
What! Since when did Potter say something well normal and nice! He looked taller and more handsome with that messy black hair of his. Whoa! I did not just think that! Potter is conceited and he was awful towards Severus, not that Severus was any better towards me. Thinking about Severus always confuses me!
When I entered the compartment I saw my two best friends Alice Prewett and Marlene McKinnon. Alice was a fairly short girl only about 5' 2". She had jet black hair that fell to her shoulders and was the nicest personI had ever met. Marlene, on the other hand, was tall and lanky. She had long blond hair and was a amazing chaser on the Griffyndor qudditch team. While Alice was always sweet and positive, Marlene was very sarcastic, but still very nice.
"Why hello, Lily how was your summer?", Alice asked.
"Probably awful, with that terrible cow of a sister you have to live with", Marlene added.
"I didn't really talk to her, so it wasn't that bad.", I said. It really hurt me that my sister didn't care about me at all. In fact she even hated me just because I was a witch. Marlene always says its jealously, but she is awfully mean to me just for being jealous.
"Oh my gosh, Lily you got head girl!", Alice screamed.
"Wow! I knew you would! This is amazing! Did you know you get a dormitory to yourself? Well, its with the head boy, I suppose.", Marlene exclaimed all without taking a breath.
"Guys, guys calm down! I know its exciting but you don't have to yell.", I said. I still wanted to ask them who they thought the head boy was and I couldn't with going on and on like that. My friends are a little well, over excitable sometimes.
"So who do you guys think the head boy is?", I asked. Then I heard the compartment door slide open and I turned around.
"Well Evans you're looking at him", Potter said in a slightly smug voice.
What! No Potter cannot be head boy! He can't! Oh no this is going to ruin my whole seventh year. This can't be happening. Then I realized it was probably a joke. Remus is probably head boy and Potter just stole his badge! Oh he'll get in trouble for that!
"Potter I can't believe you would steal Remus's badge!", I yelled.
"No, Evans I really am head boy. Remus is still a prefect", Potter said happily., "Look, the badge says Potter on it, and we are partners for the rest of the year!"
I just sat there in shock. I tried to reassure myself. Maybe Potter won't be so bad. Maybe he's grown up? Yeah right, in my dreams. "Well we better get to the prefect meeting", I said in the most polite tone I could muster, which I had a feeling wasn't very polite.
"Right-o! The prefects are probably waiting for us", Potter said.
"Okay, let's go", I said. I turned around to say goodbye to my friends and then walked down the hall towards the prefect compartment with Potter.
"Congratulations, on getting head girl Evans", Potter said.
"Thank you, congratulations on getting head boy Potter", I said quietly. Normally it would have killed me to say that to Potter but he seemed nicer now and maybe more mature.
We talked about random things while we walked towards the compartment and I found that I enjoyed myself while talking to Potter and before I knew it we were at the prefect compartment.
"Are you ready?", Potter asked.
"As ready as I'll ever be", I said nervously. We had to talk to all of the prefects about their duties and upcoming meetings. Sounds easy, right? Well, the prefects (especially the Slytherins) were pretty judgmental.
We entered the compartment and talked to the prefects. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. When the meeting was over me and Potter waited for all of the prefects to leave and Potter turned towards me.
"So, Evans I'll see you at school", Potter said. For some reason, I got major butterflies when he said that. Since when do I get butterflies around Potter! Well he was pretty good-looking.
"Hello, earth to Evans", Potter said.
"Right, sorry see you at school", I said.
So when I went back to change into my school robes all I could think about was Potter's amazing hazel eyes, which started to get on mt nerves after awhile.
