Lily and James had been patrolling for two hours, they didn't have long left and were taking a route that would end up and the heads common room. Since James had become head boy, he and Lily had, had to spend more time together, and resulting in them becoming friends. James obviously wanted them to be more but Lily shown no signs of wanting that, so not wanting to ruin their friendship he hadn't asked her out all year.
I wonder what's gotten into James this year, he hasn't asked me out once, not that I mind, I mean it was kinda annoying being asked out all the time. Of course you mind, everything you thought about him isn't actually true, he's sweet, caring, funny, drop-dead gorgeous, great body Lily laughed as she remembered the time she had walked in on James changing by accident.
James looked at her, "What are you laughing at?" he asked.
She began to blush, "Nothing" she replied. James nodded and they both walked again in silence absorbed in their own thoughts.
God I love her laugh, it just brightens up the whole room. I'm glad we became friends, but I want more, but of course what would she ever see in me, bet she's only my friend cause I'm head boy. Bet she thinks I'm boring as well because I'm not even making conversation, well then make it!
"So, erm… What's your favourite food?" asked James, Lily looked at him, surprised by the random question.
"Er…chocolate" she laughed, "What's yours?"
"Everything" he replied, flashing her, his smile that made most girls weak at the knees, "What's your favourite flower?"
"Lily's obviously, not just because they're my name but I also think they're beautiful"
"Me too" he muttered.
"What did you say?" she asked.
"Oh nothing" he said, avoiding her eyes. They continued on with their patrols, until finally they reached the head common room. They said the password ("Mandrake") and stepped in. Lily gasped at the sight in front of her. The whole common room was filled with Lilies.
"You said they were your favourite flower" he whispered in her ear sending shivers up her spine.
"How?" she asked in awe.
"I'm a marauder she remember" she giggled, and turned to face him.
"Thank you", he waved it away, "No really, no ones ever done something like this for me before".
He smiled at her causing her heart to flutter, she looked around the room and picked up one of the lilies and smelt it. "James come here" she said as he made his way over.
When he approached her she put her arms around his neck and pulled his lips to hers, he pulled her closer by her waist and kissed her back. His hands roamed up her back, as hers fiddled in his hair. When they pulled away they looked at each other and smiled, she kissed him gently on the lips before whispering, "Goodnight", then she retreated to her room.
When he was sure she was in her room, James started to dance like a mania, silently screaming until he realised he was tired and went off to bed to dream of a certain red head not knowing that she was dreaming of him.
