Chapter 1—I'm Already There

Lily grinned at her older brother, Jacob Evans, as he put the roof down on their Mustang convertible. Jacob was a wizard, graduated from Hogwarts two years ago, but still loved to drive. (a/n—I know Lily doesn't have any magical siblings, at least I think so anyway, but for the story purposes I needed him) Lily and Jacob were incredibly close and loved each other so much. They cruised down the street of their neighborhood and eventually pulling into the driveway. Jacob, ahead of Lily, swung open the door. Petunia, fed up of magic, moved into her boyfriend's house last year. Jacob starting humming and Lily smiled again and started to sing their favorite song.

"I'm already there..." She started.

"Take a look around..." Jacob joined in.

"I'm the sunshine in your hair, I'm the shadow on the ground, I'm the whisper in the wind, I'm your imaginary friend..." They continued together. They sounded really good together. Lily laughed as the song ended.

"I got to do my essay for Charms. I'm falling behind." Lily turned to face him. Jacob faked looking shocked.

"My sister? The Great Lily Evans is falling behind? Never!" Lily playfully rolled her eyes. Jacob gave her a kiss on the top of her head and she trudged up the stairs into her bedroom. She slowly got out her books as the phone rang.

"I'll get it!" Jacob yelled from downstairs. A few minutes later she heard him running up and he came into her doorway.

"Want to go out for dinner? Mum and Dad are staying at someone's house." He filled her in.

"Sure." Lily smiled at her big brother, he was the best. Jacob patted the doorway and walked across the hall to his own room. Lily turned back to her essay to get it over with. She turned on her radio and immedietly a song came on that reminded her of her boyfriend, Danny. Or ex-boyfriend now, he broke up with her a few weeks ago. Jacob was the one to help her through it. Tears began to flood her eyes, she thought she loved Danny, he was great, but it wasn't meant to be.

"Hey, what's wrong, Little One?" Jacob asked softly, using his nickname for Lily.

"This is the song I first danced to with Danny." She told him. He sat next to her and rubbed her back.

"Don't cry, you're too good for him, anyway." Jacob comforted.

"I love you, I don't know what I'd do without you." Lily looked into her brother's eyes.

"I love you too, and don't worry. I'm not going anywhere." He planted a kiss on her forehead and led her out to go get dinner.


Lily stepped out of the dressing room, wearing tight, low-rise jeans and a tank top. Jacob had taken her shopping for fun. He nodded his approval.

"No guy is getting anywhere near you, missy." He smirked. Lily rolled her eyes at him. She stepped back in the room and changing, coming out in a short denim mini-skirt, white top and denim jacket. She twirled around and Jacob clapped. Lily giggled as she stepped back inside to get on her regular clothes.

"What do you want?" Jacob asked her.

"Huh?" Lily asked, confused.

"The clothes, do you want all of them?" He repeated.

"Yeah but I'll buy them." Lily looked into his blue eyes, so unlike hers.

"Hey, little one, it's my treat for you." He grinned at her.

"Are you sure?" Lily asked again. Jacob nodded and got out of wallet, full of muggle and wizard money. After they left the muggle mall, Jacob asked her when she was going to Diagon Alley.

"I haven't been there in ages!" He said. She laughed.

"I usually go the last week of summer." She looked up at him. "Feel free to come, my friends love you." She added.

"And, I'll need to keep the guys off you." Lily playfully shoved him after he said that. "I'm only joking." He lightly shoved her back.

"You're the best." Lily grinned for what felt like the millionth time and Jacob returned it.

"So are you."


"Lily! Shelley's here!" Jacob called. Lily bounded down the stairs to see one of her best friends, whom she hadn't seen in a long time.

"Shelley!" She cried, giving her a hug.

"Hey Lily, Jacob" She added, nodding to Jacob.

"C'mon, let's go upstairs!" Lily said excitedly, she wanted to talk to Shelley so bad. They ran up the stairs and into Lily's room.

"So, how're you holding up about everything with Danny?" Shelley asked. Lily shrugged.

"Alright. Well, better than I was, anyway." She added as an afterthought.

"Oh, I'm so sorry, Lily." Shelley said, giving her a hug. Jacob came in with a tray full of sodas and popcorn.

"Yay! Thanks Jacob." Lily told him.

"No problem, little one, as long as you let me have some!" He said, grabbed a handful of popcorn before walking out. The girls laughed as he went to his room.

"Your brother is so awesome, you're lucky." Shelley told her.

"Yeah, I love Jacob." Lily said, looking in the direction of his room.

"We're hanging out tomorrow, since it's his last day. His Auror training starts the day after." Lily told her friend.

"I bet you're gonna miss him."



After finishing up their ice cream, Jacob and Lily walked back to the car. It was time to head home, after a super day together, doing all this fun stuff. Jacob turned the radio on and a song came on they both knew. They started singing happily, and laughing while doing so. Lily laughed as Jacob purposely messed up the lyrics, making it sound funny. Suddenly Lily saw bright head lights.

"Jacob! Look out!" She yelled. Jacob saw and tried to steer out of the way. They both screamed and felt the car get hit, but that was the last thing they saw.
