Chapter 6

"That was bloody brilliant Lily!" Ron said with smirk.

"Yeah, never knew that you could punch like that!" Said Harry.

Lily blushed and looked down at her plate.

It was the day after Lily had punched Malfoy, and Harry and Ron were still talking about Lily's "brilliant" punch, at the breakfast table.

"She was lucky she didn't get into any trouble." Said Hermione quietly, but couldn't help but smile.

"Where did you learn that stuff Lily?" asked Harry, tipping his head in interest.

Lily smiled.

"My mom made me go into a self defense class when I was twelve, so I would be able to protect myself if the time ever came…"

"Which wasn't yesterday." Said Jake, looking at Lily sternfully.

Lily blushed.

Jake had been giving Lily somewhat of a cold shoulder since the night before.

Lily sighed.

"Jake, come on, can you please stop giving me the silent treatment. I've learned my lesson I swear."

Lily said holding up her hand, which had a small bandage wrapped around her wrist, she had strained it slightly from punching Malfoy.

Jake sighed and turned to Lily with a smile.

"I guess I can." He said grinning his thousand-watt smile.

Lily squealed and gave Jake a big hug.

Though they had not been not talking for long Lily had missed her best friend and was glad he was talking to her again. (A.N—K, did that make any sense lol not been not talking for long? I mean seriously…)

"So did you guys get Question ten for History of Magic?" asked Jake, at the end of the weekend before Christmas break.

Everyone but Hermione shook their heads.

Everyone turned to Hermione with puppy dog eyes.

Hermione rolled her eyes and turned away.

"No way! Not this time! The eyes are not going to work!"

"Please Hermione!"

They all said in unison.

Hermione rolled her eyes again and sighed.

"Alright, but only because it's Christmas Vacation tomorrow and you finished all the other homework mostly by yourselves.

They all cheered and quickly copied down the answer, changing it here and then so Professor Binns wouldn't notice.

That Christmas Lily and Jake had invited Harry, Ron and Hermione to come stay with their families in Canada.

So far everything had gone smoothly and they were just arriving at the airport when Ron began to look confused and slightly worried.

"Umm, guys." He said quietly looked up at the sky, where you could see a few airplanes taking up.

"What are those?" he asked pointing at one of the airplanes.

Lily, Jake, Hermione and Harry smirked.

"That an airplane Ron." Replied Lily. "That how we're getting to Canada."

"Oh" replied Ron, with a gulp but followed the rest of the group into the airport.


"Wow! That brilliant!"

Everyone laughed.

They had just arrived in Canada and were laughing as Ron went on and on about how 'brilliant' the plane trip had been.

They had quickly retrieved their luggage and had only began looking for Lily's family when from the other end of the hall they heard-.


Lily eyes went wide as she was suddenly tackled.

Harry, Ron and Hermione looked at Jake in shock and confusion but before Jake could answer they two bodies that had tackled Lily, jumped up and saw-.

"JAKE!" and so continued the tackling.

"Mark! Mickey! Get off of Jake!"

Lily's little twin brothers groaned and slowly got off of Jake.

Lily smiled and let out a little squeal.


Lily rushed over and gave her father a hug.

"How was school?"

Lily beamed.

"Oh yeah! I almost forgot!"

Lily turned away from her father and began to introduce everyone.

"Daddy, this is Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, friends of mine and Jake's from school."

John smiled.

"Ah yes. Lily has told me all about you! Will you all be staying for Christmas?"

Jake turned to John.

"Only Hermione, Harry and Ron are staying at my place."

John nodded and clapped his hands together.

"Well then, now that you all have your things we should get going, Rose and Jake's parents must be wondering what's taking us so long."

Everyone nodded and followed John out of the airport.

It was only an hour later when they arrived at the Taylor's house.

Jake, Ron and Harry, said goodbye and headed down the street to Jake's house promising to meet up with the girls later.

Lily then led Hermione up to her room where the extra bed had already been pulled out and made ready for Hermione.

"You have a lovely house Lily." Said Hermione as she began to unpack her things.

Lily smiled.


It was not soon after they had arrived that they were called down for dinner and Hermione was introduced to Rose.

"It's a pleasure to meet you Mrs. Taylor." Said Hermione with a smile as she sat down at the table between Lily and Rose.

Rose smiled.

"The pleasure is all mine Hermione, Lily had told us so much about you and the boys in her letters."

Hermione smiled.

After dinner Jake invited Lily and Hermione to his place to watch a movie marathon with him, Harry and Ron.

Of course the boys just had to choose Horror movies to watch, but the girls agreed to come anyways.

They then realized that they movies would go on longer than after midnight and decided to bring their sleeping bags and stay the night as long as Lily and Jake's parents had no objections (which they didn't).

"Have you ever watched horror movie before Hermione?" Asked Lily as they walked down to Jakes with their arms full with a sleeping bag and a pillow (they had already changed into PJ's, though they did have warm clothes on because it was quiet cold, no snow though)

Hermione nodded.

"I have watched a few but never really liked them." Said Hermione turning a light shade of pink.

Lily laughed.

"Me neither."

They both laugh and entered the house that would soon spell their DOOM!

(A.N—LOL sorry I couldn't help myself)


Lily and Hermione let out a shriek and covered their eyes.

They boys laughed.

"That was so not funny!" Lily and Hermione said in unison.

Harry, Ron and Jake just smirked.

They had just finished watching the ending of Jeepers Creepers 2 and the boys had scared Lily and Hermione when they had gone to go get a drink.

"But it was SO funny!" said Harry laughing along with Jake and Ron.

Lily and Hermione just glared and walked back to the living room where they were watching the movies.

"That's it! Now we get to pick a movie." Said Lily.

Hermione nodded.

"I have the perfect one!"


"Toe Pick!"

Lily and Hermione burst out with laughter.

Jake, Ron and Harry glared at the girls.

"That was not funny." Ron said.

"Yes it was! I love The Cutting Edge it is the best movie ever!" said Hermione.

Lily nodded in agreement.

The boys just shook their heads.

Lily and Hermione had finally gotten sick of all the horror movies and while the boys were in the kitchen looking for more food, the girls chose a movie that just happened to be one of their favorites.

Harry let out a yawn.

"I think it's time for some shut eye." He said.

Everyone nodded in agreement, and they all got into their sleeping bags.

With a quiet goodnight, they all went to sleep almost immediately.

(A.N—Alright! There is FINALLY chapter 6! I was going to make it a little longer but I thought I would post it now cause whoever has stuck around to read this deserve it! RR!)
