Hi everyone!!!!!! sorry I haven't been able to write my stories for a while but life has been a bit hectic over Christmas as you can imagine! Neway here is a new one! I hope you like it. Here's some background info.

This story is set after Hogwarts. Lily and co are living in London. Lily is a successful muggle psychiatrist, James, Sirius and Remus are aurors. There all still best friends. James and Lily are the closest however but there's no romance between them until things take an unexpected turn. James is engaged to Narcissa. So here is my story!!

Therapy not going well.

Chapter 1.

Who's dead?

"So the same time next week Mr Malfoy." Lily said as she smiled politely at Lucius Malfoy, a wizard who had been ordered to take muggle therapy by the Ministry of Magic as part of his anger management programme. Unfortunately Lily was his therapist and it wasn't that she disliked him, it was just his stubbornness to open up to a muggle.

"Yes, I suppose so." He smiled falsely and left. Lily smiled and looked at him leaving hopelessly. One day he'll broaden his horizons, she thought with a grin on her face.

She swivelled round on her chair and looked out of her 30th story window. The site of London from that height sent a chill down her spine. She had worked in the same office for six years and still the views amazed her. A knock at the door interrupted her and broke her gaze of the window.

"Come in." She swivelled around and noticed her personal assistant Jen, walk in.

"Yes Jen?" Lily asked with a smile.

"Lil, you have a call off a Mr Potter, do you want to take it?"

"I suppose I'd better had." Lily grinned.

"And also, some packages have arrived for you, shall I bring them up?" Jen asked.

"No, just leave them, I'll collect them in the morning. Jen you can leave early if you want."

"Are you sure Lil?" She asked

"Yes, It's nearly Christmas, I'm sure you have a lot to do, oh and your bonus is in the post." Lily said caringly.

"Thank you Lily, so much. Are you sure?" Jen asked again.

"Yes, now go before I change my mind." Lily laughed and picked up the phone.

"James?"

"Well you kept me waiting for a while." James Potter smooth but very sarcastic voice echoed down the phone.

"Is there anything in particular James?" Lily asked in her most formal voice, just to irritate James.

"Yes, Lily I need you to meet me tonight at Starbucks, something's happened." James said worriedly. Lily worried at the tone of voice James was using.

"James, what's happened?" Lily asked hurriedly.

"I'll tell you later. I'm at work I'd better go, just meet me." And he was gone.

Lily put down the receiver, picked it up again and dialled his number back.

"Hello."

"James, who's dead?" Lily asked uncertainly.

"Dead?" James laughed.

"Well you said something's happened and you never phone me at work unless it's something really important so come on what's happened?" Lily said panicky.

"No ones dead, you prat. I just need you to meet me. It's not that bad!" James laughed down the phone hysterically.

"Oh yes, haha. Let's all laugh at Lily's silliness. I was only assuming." She said sarcastically.

"Lil, for a therapist, you can be a bit...well..."

"Ok, ok I get it. Well I thought you had work to do so hadn't you better go? I'll meet you tonight at 8. Bye." She hung up the phone. Feeling slightly foolish she packed her stuff away, picked up her briefcase and left for home.
