Sirius Black sighed as he made some dinner. He went to the bedroom door and knocked.

"Lily, you hungry?" He asked. Lily had agreed to stay at Sirius' bachelor pad for a while. She knew he'd make sure she wasn't hurt more then she already was, he'd done too much already to help Lily and the feeling of gratitude that she had towards him was enormous. The door opened and Lily appeared.

"Thanks." She said as she left the room and headed to the dinner table with Sirius.

"You know you look awful." Sirius said with a slight smile. Lily smirked.

"Thanks." Lily said, "I don't know what I would have done without you." Lily said to him.

"It's fine. I'm just as angry as you are for what James has done to you." Sirius said. Lily nodded. Grateful didn't even begin to say how Lily felt. Sirius respected that Lily was James' and would, under no circumstances, make any move on her. He had looked after her in the hellish week since her wedding and had stopped both Cara and James from seeing Lily. Lily really didn't know how she was ever going to pay him back. They had both settled into the meal when there was a knock at the door.

"I'll get it." Sirius said getting up. Lily nodded and continued to eat silently. She had spent the week crying and she wasn't going to cry anymore, or she hoped not but knew she would. Sirius opened the door to see Cara in the doorway. Her brown hair tied up and she looked quite smart for a change.

"Is Lily in?" Cara asked.

"Stay away from her." Sirius said defensively.

"She sent me an owl." Cara said. Sirius looked at Cara.

"I know what your business is. Lily's told me everything you-" Lily put a hand on Sirius' arm.

"I asked her to come Sirius" Lily said. Sirius looked at Lily.

"You sure?"

"Yeah, come in Cara." Lily said. Cara gave Sirius a smug smile just as she followed Lily to the bedroom. Lily sat on the bed and Cara looked at Lily worriedly. She didn't know why but suddenly she felt very bad about what she'd done.

"You look awful." Cara said sympathetically. Lily nodded.

"Sirius keeps saying that." Lily said.

"What did you want to see me for?" Cara asked. Lily suddenly started crying.

"You were right." She cried, "All guys are scumbags. I thought James was different but he hasn't changed since the first day I met him." Lily said. Cara moved closer and pulled Lily into a tight motherly hug. "I should have listened to you. I am too young and I'm too naïve and-" Lily said, holding Cara like she was her mother, "You're the closest thing I have to family and-"

"Sh, Lily." Cara said trying to comfort her, Cara stroked Lily's hair, something she knew Lily found comforting. "It's alright, we'll go away and find somewhere nice to live ok. We have plenty of money now, and we will have plenty of money when you divorce James." Lily nodded. She had filed for divorce, with Sirius' help a few days ago and she had a meeting the next day.

"I know." Lily said calming down. "I don't know what I would have done without Sirius' help." Cara smiled comfortingly but it no way comforted Cara, her own heart was thawing because of the hurt she'd induced on her younger friend, companion, almost daughter, even. Lily started crying again and Cara just held her like a vulnerable child as Cara began to wonder if she should tell Lily the truth.

"So, we have settled on giving Lily four million of James' Ten million?" Lily's attorney asked James'

"Give her six." James said, he couldn't take his eyes off Lily. She was trying her hardest not to look at him. James felt so bad, he didn't want to do what he had done, something had just come over him when he'd had a drink that Cara had offered him. He had just felt different, why couldn't Lily see that? Why didn't she understand that James would have never done that on purpose but Lily must have known because she had asked him if he would ever cheat on her. James just wanted Lily back. It had only been a few weeks but James didn't know how to live without her. Nothing was the same, he needed her so badly.

"So it's settled." James' attorney said. Lily got up quickly and left the room and went into the hall to collect the money from James' vault. James got up after her and held her arm to stop her.

"Get off me James." Lily said.

"Please just talk to me." James said desperately. "I didn't mean to hurt you, I love you too much to do that." Lily looked at him, James could tell she'd cried a lot.

"Love? There's no such thing, There's no love, it's the trick of the brain, it's the combination of chemicals and hormones." Lily said. James looked at her.

"You know that's not true." James said, "I know you Lily."

"Do you? You really think you know me? Cara was right, I was too young to get married and to young to do anything like this." Lily said to James, looking at him straight in the eyes. "There is only one in anyone's life. Obviously you weren't mine." Lily said looking away and carrying on to the get the money. James leaned against the wall and slid to the floor with his face in his hands.

Hamon and Cara waited outside Gringotts for Lily come out with the money that they owed Hamon. Hamon looked quite distressed about the whole thing with Lily and James. Despite the fact they were obviously going to scam James he had thought that the two actually had a shot at being a happily married couple.

"You know, I think you're in a good business." Hamon said.

"What's that?" Cara asked sulkily.

"Scamming, if Lily and James can't even work it out then there's no hope for anyone else, you and Lily are in a good business there." Hamon said, "I thought James was going to be one of those men that never cheat on their wives."

"He is." Cara muttered. Hamon looked at him.

"What?" Hamon asked. Cara stood up from the bench.

"He is one of those men. He wouldn't get off with e at first, he just wanted to get the present and then return to Lily."

"What happened?" Hamon asked.

"I drugged him." Cara said quietly.

"You what?"

"It's a Muggle thing, I gave him what the Muggles call the Date rape drug, it makes people easy to handle and by giving it to him he would cheat on Lily so we could get the money." Cara said.

"You-" Hamon was speechless.

"I know." Cara said sinking into the bench, "I shouldn't have done it."

"I knew you were evil and cold hearted but how could you do this to someone like Lily, despite everything she is the sweetest girl I've met and she was so happy with James."

"What was I supposed to do!" Cara said standing up and looking at Hamon, "You wanted the money and we didn't have enough. It was the only way to get the money!"

"I don't want it anymore. The money's dirty, it has evil bitch written all over it."

"Well I'm not taking it." Cara said.

"I'm not going to take it." Hamon said. Cara crossed her arms.

"Fine I'll have it." Cara said. Hamon looked at her coldly.

"You are-"

"Here's your money." Lily said handing the bag to Hamon.

"I don't want it." Hamon said. "Good luck with psycho bitch here." Hamon turned around and disappeared into the crowd.

"What was that about?" Lily asked.

"It doesn't matter, lets go." Cara said.

Lily and Cara had decided to travel by car. They had apparated to their south London home and were going to drive up north. Lily sat sulkily in the passenger seat of the convertible. She couldn't stop thinking of James. She wanted him so badly but Cara was right, he was just another man who cheated when something better came along, of course Lily never thought that something better would be Cara. She let a tear drop down her cheek just to have it blown away by the wind around the speeding car. Cara looked over to her and sighed.

"You ok?" Cara asked.

"What do you think?" Lily asked. She wiped an eye with her palm. "You were right, I shouldn't have gone against you." Cara bit her lip. She had to tell Lily.

"You know, you can go your own way now that we have enough money"

"I'm going to stay with you." Lily said fairly depressed, "I'll just get hurt again."

"Lily, I have something to tell you." Lily looked at Cara. "About James."


"Promise you won't kill me?" Cara asked.

"What is it Cara?" Lily asked dangerously.

"We're travelling at a very high speed, if you try and hurt me we could both crash and possibly die."

"TELL ME CARA!" Lily screamed at her.

"I drugged James." Cara said.

"WHAT!" Lily screamed.

"I gave him the date rape drug so that we could get his-" She didn't managed to finished the sentence as Lily reached across and tried to strangle Cara. "High speeds Lily, high speed." She said. Lily let go of Cara and started hitting the dashboard screaming.

"I know, I'm a bad friend I shouldn't have done it." Cara said as Lily began to hit her head against the dashboard.

"Pull over on the hard shoulder." Lily ordered Cara. Cara nodded and stopped on the hard shoulder of the motorway. Lily got out and started kicking at the grass bank.

"I can't believe you!" Lily said, "Why did you do it? Is that why Hamon didn't take the money?" Cara got out of the car as well.

"I don't know."

"I love him, you know that!" Lily said.

"I'm really sorry Lily." Cara said, "No, Sorry doesn't even begin to describe how bad I feel about it." Lily looked at Cara before disapparating.

James walked sulkily with Remus and Sirius. He was grateful that Sirius was talking to him again.

"The club belongs to Lily now, I've taken all my things out of there." James said.

"No, there's just a few more odd things left that we've put in a box for you." Sirius said.

"Yeah, then you can go." Remus said. James nodded and pushed the door open. He stopped when he saw a more then beautiful woman sitting at the bar with a drink. She was mixing it with a straw and watching the ice swirl around in the drink.

"Lily?" James asked. Lily turned around and looked at him and gave him a slight smile. She stood up and walked slowly over to him. She had some papers in her hand that James recognised as their divorce papers. She tore them in half then tore the halves in half before throwing them on the floor.

"What-" Lily silenced him by putting a soft finger against his lips.

"Talk later." She whispered as she leaned up and kissed him. James felt his insides explode with her kiss. Remus and Sirius looked at each other and smiled as James wrapped his arms around Lily's body and pulled her closer, their kiss deepening.

* * * *

"IT'S A BOY, IT'S A BOY!" Sirius ran around the club shouting at the top of his lungs. The club was very busy tonight and James and Lily nowhere in sight, in fact Lily had just given birth upstairs to a baby boy.

"IT'S A BOY!" Sirius said going to the new female bartender.

"What's he called?" She asked excitedly.

"Harry." Sirius said. The bartender grinned and Sirius pulled her into a kiss, something he'd wanted to do for a while. Upstairs, two new parents were smiling at each other as they watched their new born son settle in his mother's arm and begin to sleep.

"I'm proud of you Lily" James whispered as he kissed the corner of her mouth.

"I love you James." She said with a smile. James grinned and put his arm around Lily's shoulders and let her lay her head on his own shoulders and get her much needed sleep.


A/N:- I felt really mean withholding this chapterand seeing as a lot of you seemed to be totally not getting the point of this I posted it. Remember it's based on the movie so James was not going to be doing that willingly. I hope this chapter cleared a bit up but what's happened to Cara? I have no idea and personally, I don't want to know. The bit in the middle with the bank bit is, I am proud to say, very true to the movie, though I didn't quite catch what drug Sigourney Weaver used.

Thank you for all your reviews and support, I love you all and I'm really happy that you like this story. I've got more reviews on then on Thanks so much.
