I hope you enjoy my new story, I'm trying to make it way different from my "The Battle for Lily" Story. I hope you enjoy! ~May
I sat down on the Hogwarts express awaiting my boyfriend. We had met over the summer in Diagon Alley, he was in my year at Hogwarts but I couldn't remember him. I had given up trying to remember who he was and just gone a couple dates with him. After that it turned serious and we had begun dating, much to the delight of my parents and the disgust of my sister who had to now go and find herself a boyfriend. His name being Vernon Dursley, I hated her boyfriend, but in turn she hated mine. Halden Rosschester was a handsome boy, gorgeous dirty blond hair and beautiful blue eyes. I was glad that I had agreed to go out with him, though I had forgotten about one complication. This complication tended to go by the name of James Potter.
James had followed me around for six years, asking me out on every corner and pulling a prank on Severus and I on every turn. Until my fifth year, Severus and I had done everything together, but now I wasn't friends with him and James had taken to just pulling pranks on me alone. I had not appreciated this one bit and I had given James countless detentions by dragging him and his friends to Professor McGonagall's office. That office had become a sort of second home for them I would guess.
"Evans, this year is the year. Will you go out with me?" Potter's voice broke into my reverie as he and his friends entered my compartment.
"No." I told him shoving him away from the seat I was saving for my boyfriend.
"Why can't I sit there?" He asked me looking confused; I had never shoved him off the seat before.
"I'm saving it for someone." I told him and his friends grinned, they thought I was meaning one of my girl friends, like Alice of Marlene.
"Hey Lily!" Alice squealed storming into the compartment with Frank it tow, it was getting quite crowded. Marlene went to sit by me but I shook my head repeating the message. The only available seat for Marlene was next to Sirius; she didn't look to pleased, but sat by him nonetheless.
"Lily, there you are! I was looking all over for you!" Halden's voice came from the door and I gestured him inside.
"Halden!" I squealed. "I couldn't find you on the platform so I saved you a spot in a compartment with me."
"Glad to know you care." Halden gave me a smile and I returned his smile with a kiss.
The whole compartment was staring at us, James with a more raged expression on his face. Remus looked slightly surprised, Peter looked scared, Sirius looked amused, Alice had adorned a shocked look, Frank was looking very confused, and Marlene was giggling.
"Oh right, I forgot to introduce you guys. Everyone this is my boyfriend," I relished that word right into James' face, "Halden Rosschester. Halden, these are my friends Alice Fortescue, Frank Longbottom, Marlene McKinnon, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. Then the other two are the annoying companions Sirius Black and James Potter."
"Nice to meet you." Halden told the group and they replied with a hello in his direction, except James who glowered. Sirius was laughing his head off in the corner.
"How did you two meet exactly?" Alice asked us and I looked at him.
"He bumped into me in Diagon Alley over the summer." I told them.
"No I believe it was you who bumped into me." Halden teased me.
"No it was definitely you who bumped into me spilling my things all over the ground." I replied smiling.
"I don't think so Lily, you bumped into me and all your things fell to the ground."
"I believe I have you beat on this one Halden, you bent down to help me pick up my things saying sorry because it was your fault. Then you asked me out." I poked him in the chest; we were inches away from each other.
"I'll let you have it this time." He grinned before pressing his lips to mine. I settled back in my seat, and then glanced down at my watch.
"Ah crud!" I said standing up quickly. As I ran out of the compartment I called to my friends, "Be back later guys!"
All this Lily and Halden stuff was enough to make my stomach turn. I was ready to be sick, it was disgusting.
"Ah crud!" Lily was looking at her watch with a scared expression on her face, she jumped up running out. She barely caught a good-bye to us, "Be back later guys!"
"What was that all about?" I asked looking around the compartment.
"Head Girl stuff." Halden replied laying back in his seat.
"James shouldn't you be going to?" Remus asked me and I looked at him.
"Why?" I questioned giving him a quelling look, Remus tapped his head and then pointed at me. Then I realized it, I'm Head Boy, I am such a spazzy dolt. "Right."
I rushed down the hall after Lily, I forgot about leading the prefects meeting. I reached the compartment we were to meet in and Lily was staring out the window, the look on her face told me what she was thinking of the Head Boy right now. I slid the door open, she didn't turn to see who it was, probably not even realizing I was Head Boy.
"Nice of you to show up on time." Lily told me before turning to give her partner a nasty look. "What are you doing here?"
"I'm Head Boy." I told her pointing at my badge.
"You can't be, tell me you stole that from Remus or somebody." Lily stood up looking shocked and a little scared.
"No I didn't, here is the letter to prove it." I held out a piece of parchment to Lily who took it and scanned through the letter.
"Dang it!" Lily whispered and I grinned at her, this was going to be a fun year.
"Where's he going?" I asked the compartment that was now staring at me like I was a caged animal in Eyelops or the Magical Menagerie.
"James is Head Boy this year, honestly I thought Remus would've gotten the Head Boy letter, but James did." Sirius explained and I nodded, there's no harm then. I still couldn't figure out why he had sat glaring at me, I had never done anything to him.
"Just hope he doesn't torture poor Lily." Alice muttered and my head snapped around to look at her.
"What do you mean by that?" I asked her and she looked sheepishly around at us.
"Well, James has basically been in love with her since the first year. He's spent the last 6 years asking her out and torturing her best friend Severus Snape," a few people in the compartment cringed at his name, "then she comes to her seventh year, the last year he has to get her to fall in love with him, and she has a boyfriend. You can see why he'd hate you for no reason, no matter how happy you make Lily he's always going to harbor some hateful feelings towards you because you were able to get Lily and he wasn't."
"Oh." Was all I said and Remus gave me a sympathetic look. The pitter patter of the train wheels on the iron work rails outside was the only sound that we heard for a while before a fuming Lily came back to the compartment with an apologizing James Potter behind her.
"I just don't see why you had to do that!" Lily shouted at him and James flinched away.
"He was made prefect Lily, he was going to get chummy with you. Or try." James argued back.
"It doesn't matter if he's a prefect; he's not even my friend anymore. It's not your job to try and protect me either." Lily slumped down into the seat next to me with a mad expression on her face.
"James what happened?" Remus asked trying to see if there was a way to solve the problem.
"He attacked Sev!" Lily yelled as James sat down in his seat.
"James, not again!" Remus sighed giving his best friend a look.
"He was trying to get chummy with Lily." James defended.
"He was not; he just asked if he could talk to me for a moment. You had no idea what he was going to say!" Lily screamed at him.
"He was probably going to attack you; he's a minion of Voldemort Lily." James told her softly.
"You don't know that. Sev will always be more of a friend than you anyway." Lily said.
"Whatever, just because you and Halden-" James mumbled.
"Oh don't you go starting on Halden and I!" Lily sat up straighter glaring at him.
"It's okay Lily." I whispered in her ear kissing her on the cheek. Lily turned and smiled at me before sitting back and laying her head on my shoulder.
