*Hey guys! If you read the prequel to this, welcome back! If this is your first time reading my sort-of series, then welcome! Don't feel you have to read 'Dancing Queen' to understand what's going on. I'm sure you'll pick it up easy enough.

Disclaimer: Yeah, unfortunately her royal highness owns all this. Isn't she just the best?


Lily Evans drowsily walked up the steps to the front door of her house. The sun was slowly setting behind her, making her hair glow vibrantly. She sighed as she reached into her pocket, pulled out her keys and unlocked the door. She pushed it open and smiled weakly as she crossed the threshold, the feeling of relief that she was home flooded over her.

"James? Are you home?" she called, closing the door behind her. She listened for an answer as she hung her jacket on the peg next to the door, but there was none. She sighed walked over to the large red armchair by the fire and flopped down into it. Lily sighed as she kicked her shoes off, rested them on the footstool with a grunt and closed her eyes.

She was exhausted for her day at work. They Ministry was in disarray lately over recent attacks from Voldemort, and her department along with many others that you wouldn't normally think would be needed, were heavily involved in trying to sort it out.

Lily was working in the Department of Muggle and Wizard Cross-relations. Basically, it was her job to keep peace between the two worlds if any upset were to occur. She therefore, worked very closely with the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts Department.

Although Lily had only been there a few months, she was already very good at what she did. Her heritage of being a Muggle-born definitely came in handy more than once a day.

"Hey Eve." Lily said, petting her owl that had just landed on her knee. She hooted with pleasure as Lily's long fingers delicately stroked the owl's chest. The owl nipped Lily's finger affectionately, before flying back over to her perch, next to James's owl Jasper.

Lily looked around her living room. It was slowly becoming increasingly dark, and everything was beginning to throw shadows up the walls. She reluctantly got up, switched on a few lamps and walked into the kitchen. She flicked on the light, walked over to the fridge and opened it. She bent down and thought for a moment, before pulling out a bottle of Butterbeer.

Lily went back into the living room and was about to turn the TV on, when the front door swung open and James walked in, carrying some sort of parcel.

"I'm home!" he called, having not spotted Lily standing meters away from him. She chuckled, put her bottle down and threw herself onto him, wrapping her legs around him. He stumbled, but thankfully did not topple over.

"Oh, hello." He said, slightly startled. Lily chuckled and ran a hand through his hair.

"Hello yourself." She said. James chuckled as she bent down and kissed him. "Have a good day?" she asked, getting off him. James snorted and placed his keys in the bowl next to the door.

"Yeah, well generally speaking it was. But come on, I bought Fish'n'chips." He said, holding up the package. Lily let out a sigh of relief and dragged him into the kitchen.

"Oh thank god. I'm so tired." She said, letting her eyes close. James chuckled and kissed the side of her head.

"Yeah, I thought you might be. How's everything going?" he asked, getting plates from the cupboard. Lily sighed and sat down at the small table in the kitchen. They hardly ever used the large dining room except for when they entertained.

"Well, Arthur Weasley came in today and we worked on that upset in Essex. The woman who complained said her muggle neighbor was discriminating against her. Says her neighbor would abuse her verbally over the fence.' Lily rubbed her eyes. 'Honestly, if the man was so horrible, I don't know why she even told him." She said. James chuckled, handed her a plate and began unfolding their dinner.

"Why was Arthur there then?" he asked.

"She jinxed his washing machine. It floods everywhere, and when he opened it and leant in to try and fix it...well, you can guess what happened." She said. James snorted and began helping himself to chips.

"Your only 18, and already you're running yourself ragged." He said. Lily smiled at him.

"Me, nah. I'm fine. What about you, did you have a good day at training?" she asked, standing up to get a Butterbeer for James. He snorted and shook his head.

"Never a dull day at that place. I think today was a record for mishaps." He said. At Lily's questioning look, he continued. "Well, Moody was strongly engrossed with his 'Constant Vigilance' speech, when Kingsley Shackelbolt came in. Sirius was so enthralled with Moody's talk that he got so shocked, he cursed Goodson next to him and singed his eyebrows off." He said, chuckling. Lily looked surprised for a second, before she too started giggling.

"Was Moody pissed?" she asked. James snorted and broke off a piece off fish.

"You could say that. He told Sirius to stay back. I reckon he's still there." He said. Lily chuckled.

James and Sirius were both in Auror training. Their instructor happened to be Alastor Moody, and although he was very harsh and strict, he was still very good.

"Poor guy. He's been a bit out of it lately." She said. James nodded and ate another chip.

"Hmm. He seems a bit distant lately. I've tried asking him what's wrong, but he wont tell me." He said. Lily looked concerned.

"He won't tell you?" she asked. James nodded.

"Yeah. He just keeps telling me not to worry and to stay focused on the wedding." He said. At this, Lily smiled.

"Speaking of which...' she started. James snorted.

"Oh boy. Here we go." He said. Lily hit him playfully in the arm.

"As I was saying, I've planned to go into London soon and look around for dresses. Mum said she would take me around." She said. James smiled and nodded. "When are you taking the others around to look at suits?" she asked.

"Soon." James said smiling. Lily rolled her eyes.

"Can you be a bit more specific?" she asked. James chuckled, stood up and kissed her cheek.

"Nope." He said. Lily sighed and watched him put his plate in the sink. "Oh look, I don't know. We have to work around training and Peter's job and the full moon." He said, leaning against the bench. Lily nodded.

"Ok. Well let me know when you've got an idea." She said, turning in her seat to look at him. James nodded and watched her fondly from across the counter. Lily stood up and smiled.

"What?" she asked, walking over to him. James smiled and took her hand as she stood opposite him.

"I just get all fuzzy inside when you talk about wedding plans." He said in a child-like tone. Lily snorted and kissed his hand.

"You should see your mother when I get talking about it. I think she's even more excited than I am." She said. James chuckled and kissed Lily across the bench.

"Come on. I'm too tired to sleep now. Lets go see a movie." He said. Lily snorted.

"Too tired to sleep. Yeah, that makes sense." She said. James chuckled, jumped up onto the bench, slid over it and landed in front of Lily.

"Come on. Anything you want to see." He said. Lily thought for a second, before her face lit up.

"Lets go see Dracula!" she said, pulling on the front of his shirt. James chuckled.

"Dracula? You'd think you've had enough of vampires with all the work we did on them in Defense Against the Dark Arts." He said. Lily rolled her eyes.

"Alright, fine. What do YOU want to see?" she asked, poking him in the chest. James smirked.

"More American Graffiti." He said. Lily laughed and shook her head.

"You know, I really regret showing you that movie." She said. James laughed and shrugged. A while back, Lily had shown James the movie 'American Graffiti', thinking he would enjoy it. She apparently had been quiet right about this, as he had announced it to be his favorite movie of all time.

"But, if you want to watch people's blood getting sucked out as opposed to teenage mischief and mayhem, you are quite welcome to." He said. Lily considered his hopeful face for a moment, before sighing in defeat.

"Alright." She said, throwing her arms up in defeat. "We'll go see your bloody movie." She said smirking. James laughed and ran upstairs to get his wallet. Lily chuckled and walked back into the entrance hall to retrieve her coat and keys. She didn't bother with her purse, as she knew James was most likely going to pay. And for once, she didn't mind that he was willing to do so.

"Alright, lets go." He said, running enthusiastically back down the stairs, through the kitchen area and into the entrance hall. Lily laughed, kissed him and the pair disapparated moments later.


Three hours later, James was carrying a sleeping Lily up the stairs to their bedroom. She had fallen asleep halfway through the movie and had stayed awake long enough to apparate back to Godric's Hollow.

James pushed the door to their bedroom open and laid her down on the bed. As James took her shoes and jacket off, she stirred slightly and her eyes fluttered open.

"Mmm, James?" she muttered. James sat down beside her.

"Shh. Just go back to sleep. You're home." He said, stroking her hair. Lily muttered something incoherent and rolled over onto her stomach. James chuckled silently and rubbed her back to relax her for a few minutes.

Once her breathing steadied, signalizing that she had once again drifted off, James got up, walked over to the window and sat in the armchair next to it.

He sat a watched her for a few moments. Streams of moonlight were filtering through the curtains, making lines on her body and brining out her hair once more. James took his own shoes off and relaxed into the chair.

He drifted off to sleep minutes later.
