Summary: Lily Evans was never paid heed to be the Marauders. Why should this year be any different? But there is one difference in this year; the six years are assigned to be a job shadow for two months. Lily Evans is assigned to be a Medi-witch. James falls off his broom and has to spend a few weeks in the hospital wing. Rated R for language and sex. R/R!
A/n: My first Lily/James story. I hope it turns out the way I want it to. I have so many ideas for it that I didn't know which one to do. Finally I decided to explain out how Lily and James got together, of course, and why Peter Pettigrew suddenly held a grudge against the two. Just what did drive him to do what he did? I hope to explain that in this story! So sit back and enjoy!

Chapter twenty-six: Sometimes the End is the Beginning
Peter Pettigrew walked down a gloomy dark hallway trying to ignore his feelings. He was hurt. He was more than hurt. He was angry. He could just feel his blood steaming with inside of him. How could that happen to him? This was his chance not James's! He had the girl. She was beautiful and was so close to being his girlfriend. Well...sort of.
Peter stumbled down the hallway not taking time to notice the pictures glaring at him for being up so late and ruining their peaceful sleep. How could he sleep in the same room with his supposed best friend after he stole the girl of his dreams?
Some might say he was over reacting. Bloody hell, he even thought it a few times himself. Then he reminded himself that this was supposed to be his chance! He spent his past years at Hogwarts following the Marauders everywhere they went, agreeing to everything they said, and doing just about anything James asked him to do. And what do they do? They throw it all away.
Before Peter knew it he had stumbled down into the darkest location he could think of at Hogwarts. The dungeons. He expected it to be empty, but to his surprise a light was lit in the potions room. Curiosity got the best of him, and he slowly made his way to the light like a bug being drawn to a bug zapper.
The door was cracked just enough so he could see who was in there. It was the Slytherins. Not just any Slytherins but Lucius Malfoy's gain. His curiosity was pleased so he stepped away from the door. Unfortunately, Severus Snape opened the door just as he was turning to leave.
"Well, Well, Well. It seems a lost little Marauder has stumbled into our area." Snape said in a monotone voice.
"I'm not lost." Peter mumbled quietly. His voice was sore from not talking very much and came out hoarse
Snape gave him a look that seemed to be amused, "Then you came here on purpose. Looking for a little excitement outside your boring Gryffindor morons."
"There not boring-" Peter was cut off by the voice of Duncan Belzberg, Lucius Malfoy's right hand man.
"Shut the fucking door, Severus-" He stopped short when he saw Peter Pettigrew, "If it isn't Potter's little poppet. Out a little late, aren't we?"
Peter glared at the mention of James's name. Suddenly tonight's events came flooding back into his memory, "I'm not Potter's poppet."
"OO, someone's a little sour at his master, no? Don't worry; we welcome anyone who is willing to curse the name of Potter in our group." Duncan Belzberg was one annoying guy, but right now Peter was enjoying his company.
The thought of getting back at James was just entering his mind, and it was a good thought. Peter frowned and pushed the thoughts from his head. No, James had always been his friend...until tonight.
"Come on. You're not scared, are you? We're only drinking fire whiskey in there." Duncan had a way to taunt people. He often considered it a gift.
Peter held his head high feeling his Gryffindor Bravery kick in. He walked into the noise room hushing it within seconds. Now that was a gift. Lucius Malfoy stood up from his chair and walked over to the Peter. He towered Peter by a good three inches. The only sound in the room was Duncan shutting the door.
"Malfoy." "What brings you to our neck of the forest?" A small smirk played on Lucius's lips as if he already knew the answer.
Peter frowned, "I was just walking."
"I need to time to think."
"To think or be depressed?"
"I don't think that's any of your bloody business."
"You don't have to be in here. Right, fellows? They'll show you the way out." He heard the sound of a fist hitting a hand.
"Fine. I was thinking about betrayal." There words flew back and forth at an un-human rate. Neither flinched nor paused. The rest of the room was silent. After a few seconds, Lucius raised an eyebrow, "Betrayal?" He chuckled, "Someone betrayed you, Pettigrew?"
"I think so."
"You think? Well, what'd you do about it?"
A different voice drifted in from the back, "Nothing?" It was Duncan, "Gryffindor definitely don't know how to handle betrayal the way Slytherins do. Some bravery. If you were in Slytherin you would have had revenge already."
Peter shook his head, "Revenge isn't for me. I could never do that to my friends."
Lucius looked surprised, "Friends? Are you telling me Potter, Black, and Lupin betrayed you?"
Peter looked at his feet and shifted slightly. He didn't know if he should really be discussing this with the Slytherins. After all, one wrong word and his whole reputation would go down the drain. "It was more of James than the rest."
Lucius sneered, "And you did nothing? You aren't even worth of being in the Slytherin presents."
"Want us to kick him out, Lucius?" Duncan pounded his fist in his hand.
"Shut up." Lucius hissed at Duncan, "I've decided this lost little lamb...or should I say skunk... needs our help." Peter saw him wink at the guy next to him, "Besides, we need a little fun. Duncan, pour more fire whiskey and let's celebrate."
Peter looked at the cup Duncan had handed him in an unsure manner. He shouldn't be down here. These were his enemies. But then again it was fire whiskey, and he could use the chance to get smashed. Without another thought, he turned the cup up and downed the whole drink.
He coughed and gagged as Lucius patted him on the back, "Welcome to the Slytherins style of partying."
After an hour of drinking, Peter was drunk. Not as drunk as he wanted to be. He could still remember everything that happened that night, but there was no more fire whiskey to whisk away his problems. Peter stood up and headed to the door with the rest of the boys.
"Next week!" Duncan called out in a drunken voice, "Next Saturday while everyone else is at Hogsmeade we meet back here for another round of drinks, and maybe some business."
"You're coming, right Pettigrew?" Lucius's voice came out cold, cruel, and as if he hadn't been drinking at all.
Peter nodded his head, "I'll be there."
"I always knew James fancied you." Sirius wrapped an arm around my shoulder.
I pushed it off and grinned at him, "You did not! You didn't even know my name until the first of this year."
Sirius gasped, "But of course I did. It's Lily Evans."
I glared at him, "Well, you know it now."
"I knew it then."
"You did not!"
"Yes, I did."
"No, because you forgot it in Potions three months ago."
"No, I never did that."
"Ugh, yes you did!"
James rolled his eyes, "Will you two ever stop arguing?" He grinned and began to rub my shoulders. He was sitting on the couch and I was in the floor next to Sirius. I immediately tensed up at the touch of his hands. This was going to take a lot of getting used to, that's for sure.
After Peter had fled from the Astronomy Tower, me and James had re-talked everything over. We decided we both fancied each other. Of course, I still had no clue where that left our relationship. And Peter! We hadn't even seen or heard from him since he found out.
Suddenly the common room door flew open and in waltzed a highly intoxicated Peter Pettigrew. Speak of the devil. He grinned goofily and tripped five times on his walk to a near by chair. He barely even made it to sit down.
Sirius snorted, "Someone's a little drunk." Peter nodded his eyes half closed.
"Where'd you get the whiskey?" James asked not a trace of humor in his voice. James wasn't one to mess around with drinking. He wasn't into that kind of stuff.
James waited for answer, but didn't receive one since Peter had pasted out cold in the arm chair. I yawned and laid my head against the back of the couch...well...what I thought to be the back of the couch. It was actually James's legs. "Go to bed." Remus mumbled smiling, "After we figure out what to do with Peter, I'm going."
Suddenly James was on his feet and grabbing my hand pulling me up too, "That's a great idea! Don't try to make too much noise coming in boys." James grinned pulling me up towards there room.
Sirius groaned, "And you don't make too much noise coming."
I blushed deeply feeling the knot in my stomach grow tight with every step. I tried to move my thoughts to other things. Like why the boy's staircase wasn't turning to a slide like the girls does when a boy gets on it. Do they trust us more? Well, I know one thing. I'd trust a ton of guys in Gryffindor not to go up the girl's staircase before I'd trust Mary Heur-wood to not go up the boy's. Before I knew it we were outside the door only James wasn't opening it.
He turned around and faced me, "We don't have to do anything..."
I smiled slightly. He was a true gentleman. After all those years of hating him, loathing him, and having him hating me, I was standing outside his bedroom door trying to decided if I really wanted to give him my...well my virginity. And he was the one saying we DON'T have too. This world really is crazy.
I glanced down at our hands laced together. It had been less than five hours since we decided we liked each other. Only five and I was ready. What the hell is wrong with me? I grinned happily knowing exactly what it was. I had been swept off my feet and didn't even see it coming.
I nodded my head slowly bring my eyes back up to meet James's, "Yes."
His eyes widened, and he was clearly surprised. He coughed and shifted from foot to foot, "Lily, I don't want this to be a one-night stand. We can't go back to hating each other after this. I couldn't." He coughed again, and his voice sounded low and scratchy, "What I'm trying to say is. We shouldn't do this if you're going to wake up in the morning regretting it. I understand if you want to go back to your room or just sleep in my bed."
I continued grinning. I didn't want to just sleep. I just realized that I like, I love, Yo gusta, J'aime, this boy. Well, I think its love. It could be puppy love, but I adore the way he looks at me. I crave his attention.
The only thing that seemed to bother anyone is this was happening so fast. It kind of came out of know where, but for some odd reason...it didn't bother me as much as it should.
"Let's do it." I whispered reaching around him to open the door.
He grinned grabbing my hand, "This is going to be special. I promise."
We walked in and I sat down on the first available bed. James, who was taking his shoes off, began laughing, "I don't think Sirius would like it very much if we used that bed."
I blushed realizing I didn't even know if that was his bed or not. "Which one?" He pointed to the top bunk on the right side of the room.
I gapped at it, "How are...Won't we... What if we fall?"
He grinned, "I won't let you fall, Evans."
Satisfied with the answer, I took my shoes off and climbed into the top bunk, and James followed behind me. As soon as we were settled with my back pressed against the wall and James lying in front of me, he closed the curtain and cast a silencing spell around us. The minute he turned back to face me, my lips landed on his. James was surprised, but quickly caught up by pushing my mouth open wider.
Within seconds his tongue was pushing against mine making me drift away from the world. His hands moved slowly to the hem of my shirt. He was going slowly on purpose as if teasing me. My breath hitched as he kissed down my neck. He sucked slightly on my collar bone as his hands caressed my stomach. His fingers drew small circles around my belly button making it just about impossible for me to breath.
Finally his hands grabbed both sides of my shirt and lifted it over my head. James pecked my lips slightly before going down to kiss even lower along my chest. Suddenly my bra was in his way as well so he removed. For the first time in my life I was standing completely bare-chested in front of a guy and not blushing about it. In fact I felt rather comfortable.
Wanting to know if he'd feel the same I grabbed the hem of his shirt and pulled upward. I struggled as I tried to get it off, but James helped and it soon joined my shirt. While I was admiring James's chest his hand slowly came up cupped my left breast making me gasp. Within the next second his mouth closed down over it bring an even heavenlier feeling to my body. This was it. As far as had ever been, and this time no one was going to interrupt us. A knot twisted in my stomach. I knew no one was going to stop us now.
James soon became bored with my breast. His hands moved slowly to jeans undoing the button. He pushed them down and off my feet before letting his hands run all over my legs. I shivered as his hands reached the top. Acting on human instincts I pulled his mouth to mine to devourer it in a kiss. My hands moved to his pants wanting him to be at the same level at me. I undid them and the met the same fate mine had.
James pulled me closer and rolled his hips into mine making a heavenly friction. I gasped immediately wanting more. Surprising myself and James I removed his boxers before he removed my knickers. He grinned at me, and I mentally groaned knowing he would say something smart like 'Feisty for a virgin'. But if he was he must be going to later since he just removed my knickers instead.
"I love you, Lily." James whispered in my ear hovering just above me.
I swallowed hard, "I love you too." With that said he came down slowly filling me full. I whimpered. Tears threatened my eyes, but I wouldn't allow myself to cry in a time like this. No matter how much pain. The pain was soon gone and pleasure rode through my body. I met James's eyes.
As if reading my mind, he began to move up and down in at a slow pace. As the pace quickened so did our breaths. I moaned loudly letting James know he was doing things perfect. I felt myself explode and tumbled downward. It took a few more up-downs for James to follow, but soon he was mumbling my name as pleasure took over the both of us.
The next morning at breakfast I felt truly wonderful. I smiled and waved at everyone in the hallways. James was holding my hand and we were about to enter The Great Hall. Soon everyone would know that I no longer hated James, and he no longer loathed me. There couldn't have been a person in the world happier than I was. As we approached the table we noticed Peter was sitting alone in our normal spot with his head bowed down. He had a hangover. No doubt about it.
"Hey Pete." James mumbled making him look up. He caught sight of us holding hands, but it didn't faze him. His face remained motionless. "Hey." He grumbled before taking a long sip of pumpkin juice.
"Where are Sirius and Remus?" James asked sitting down and signaling for me to do the same.
"They aren't down yet. Apparently I was so much of a hassle they didn't get much sleep last night." It wasn't hard to detect the bitterness in his voice.
"Well, that's good, because we wanted to talk to you." James mumbled looking at me. I nodded smiling.
"Peter, I'm sorry." He looked at me for the first time, but still showed no emotion what so ever. So I continued, "I'm sorry for leading you on. I really think you're a great friend, but I just don't think of you as more than that. I hope you can forgive me for being such a tease."
Peter's lips turned up slightly, but something was still different. Maybe it was just his hangover. "I forgive you, Lily. Beside, I'm sure you and James are going to be happy together."
"Yeah, We are- " James was cut off by the sound of Sirius Black's voice.
"There are my two favorite love birds!" Sirius plopped down in the seat next to mine as Remus took the one next to Peter. "So, how was last night?" I blushed and looked away. I can't believe he wants to talk about this now. With all these people around!
"Great!" James answered loudly earning a slap in the stomach from me. He grinned, "Don't be shy. Tell them how you love me."
I grinned at his cuteness, "I love him."
Sirius smiled, "Perfect! Now we can celebrate! Saturday at Hogsmeade. James'll by drinks. Who's in?"
"I'm in." I grinned as James pouted about having to buy.
"I'm there." Remus joined in.
Sirius turned to Peter, "You coming, Wormtail?"
Peter looked up slowly from his plate wearing a creepy looking smile, "I'm afraid I can't. I have... other engagements."
A/n: So! What do you think! Good? Bad? I for
