Don't We Belong Together?
They're both popular. They're both good-looking. They're both smart and rich. So why does girl hate boy? Don't they belong together? This is the life of James Potter and Lily Evans. R and R please!
Chapter 1—Two Opposite Lives
Lily Evans sighed as she sat on her favorite squishy couch in the sunroom of her overly large home. She heard a light knock and sat up slowly, to see the butler at the door.
"Can I get you anything, Miss Lily?" He asked. Lily made a face. Sometimes she wished she had a normal life, but she should be used to it after 16 years.
"No thanks. Well actually, have you seen my cell phone?" Lily was of course a muggle-born that attended Hogwarts, so her parents still believed in her using muggle materials.
"I saw it last on the table by the pool, miss." He replied. Lily nodded a thank you and set off to the beautiful outside of her home. There was a stone pathway leading to the large, sparkly blue pool. Lily spotted her silver flip phone on the table and dialed her best friend,
Katie's, number. Katie was a half-blood witch. Her father was a wizard that attended Hogwarts as a teenager but her mother was muggle, so they still used muggle items in their home. Lily spoke as soon as Katie answered.
"Do you want to go into London? Diagon Alley maybe?" She asked.
"Oh sure! I miss everyone from school." Katie answered. Lily laughed, knowing Katie
was thinking of someone in particular.
"Everyone? I'm thinking you're missing someone. Preferably Sirius." Lily accused Katie, who laughed also.
"Maybe…" Katie said slowly.
"Okay," Lily was still laughing slightly, "I'll have the limo swing by in 20 minutes." She hung up and went to her bright, sunny room to brush her beautiful, perfectly straight reddish-brown hair, and apply make-up. She changed into her favorite jeans, tight ones that flared at the bottom. She wanted to look nice in case she ran into people from school.
Katie came running out of her huge house, her also perfectly straight hair, though blonde, flying behind her. She was wearing a very short tan, black, and red plaid skirt, with a matching shirt. Katie played Chaser on the Gryffindor quidditch team, so she had thin, toned legs. She and Lily were very pretty, causing lots of attention from the guys.
James Potter, Sirius Black and Remus Lupin, roamed the cobble stone streets of Diagon Alley. They were each licking ice cream from the shop and just fooling around laughing. They stopped into the Quidditch shop and James instantly fell in love with the new broom, Shooting Star 07. After staring at it for too long and reading all about it, he couldn't use self control and instantly spent about 30 Galleons on it. Just as they were walking out, Sirius froze.
"What?" James and Remus both asked him. They followed his gaze and saw Katie Connors, one of the Hogwarts hotties (as the guys secretly called them), wearing a short skirt and laughing sweetly with her best friend, Lily Evans. Remus heard them both suck in their breath. James was incredibly crazy for Lily but she hated him. As for Sirius and Katie, he could tell they both adored each other, but did nothing about it.
Lily and Katie both felt eyes on their backs and turned around to see James Potter and Sirius Black staring at them. Lily groaned loudly but Katie giggled happily. She took Lily's hand and had to use great effort to drag her over to the guys.
"Hey!" She smiled at Sirius.
"Hey." He grinned back.
"Lily! Hi!" James said eagerly. Lily just looked at him until Katie nudged her, rather hard too.
"Hi." She said rudely.
"Er, so what brings you two here?" Remus interrupted the cold silence all around Lily.
"We got bored." Katie simply answered. She noticed James staring at Lily's green eyes, while Lily tapped her foot.
"Bored? In the houses you live in? There's enough to do in a whole lifetime!" Remus explained. Lily finally spoke.
"Well, the pool gets boring if you go in everyday and that's like, the only fun thing to do at the house."
"Well, since Katie plays quidditch, we have a mini quidditch field in my back yard, so you both could come over sometime! Sirius moved in with my family and Remus is there a lot, so you can hang out with all of us." James said hopefully.
"How do you have a quidditch field?" Katie asked.
"It's an all-wizard community, so we're allowed." James answered.
"Well, Katie can go. I don't like playing Quidditch. And stop staring at me, Potter!" Lily stated. James turned to face Sirius.
"So, do you want to walk around together?" Sirius asked.
"Sure!" Katie said, she loved hanging out with Sirius and the guys, but remembered Lily didn't, for she kicked Katie's foot. Katie shrugged helplessly and Lily groaned and rolled her eyes. They set off for Florish and Blotts and Lily escaped away to find a book. Her once cheerful mood was disappearing since she saw Potter. He asked her out about 201 times last year (Lily counted) and still kept asking. What does he see in me? Lily wondered to herself. I've been such a jerk to him, and he still 'likes' me. It was true, Lily snapped at him, called him names, shouted, hit, and done everything possible to get him away during the last 6 years at Hogwarts. Of course, he still didn't give up. He's got perseverance, yet uses it annoyingly. He doesn't know when to stop, or---
"Lily?" Katie came up behind her, disrupting her thoughts about Potter. "Are you okay?"
"Uh, yeah, why?" Lily responded.
"You've been frowning at that shelf for 10 minutes." Katie told her, which made Lily feel stupid. She just walked away and began looking at the books, but soon saw a shadow over her.
"Hey." A deep, male voice said.
"Ugh! Potter! Leave me ALONE!" She said, incredibly loudly, turning around. However, the guy behind her, looking rather amused now, was not Potter. It was someone she'd never met before, but he was incredibly good looking, with long dark hair falling into his eyes, similar to Sirius's, but in a way, different. He was tall and muscular. Lily felt her heart race.
"Oh, I'm sorry. It's just this guy, and—." She started but he held up his hand and chuckled slightly.
"Don't worry, it's fine." He held out his hand. "I'm Jason."
She shook his hand. "I'm Lily." She smiled at him. "Do you go to Hogwarts?"
"I will this year, my parents had actually home-schooled me, until the Ministry banned it. I'll be in 7th year, I'm turned eighteen in September." He answered.
"I'm a seventh year there too. Though I won't be eighteen for a while." She told him.
James watched around the corner of a shelf as he saw Lily meet this new guy. She was smiling and giggling a lot. His heart sank to his knees. He knew Lily wasn't going to go out with him anytime soon, but her going out with someone else would kill him. They just met, she's just being nice, He tried to unsuccessfully calm himself.
"What's up, Prongs?" Sirius came up behind him. When he got no answer, he followed James's gaze to Lily laughing with some unknown guy. "Aw, Prongs, you knew this could happen." Sirius said.
James slowly nodded and in a depressing voice answered, "Yeah. Yeah, I knew. Let's go."
They lied to Katie that the three guys had to be back home at a certain time, so they could get James away before breaking point. Even though Lily wasn't his girlfriend, or even friend for that matter, it still hurt him, seeing the one he loved, seem to love someone else.
hey! Hope you liked it! Please review, I'll put up chapter 2 after some reviews!
