Last Chapter

Then at the same time they both blurted out "I'm Sorry"

"What are you sorry for?" asked Lily

"Plenty, what are you sorry for you didn't do anything?"

What are you sorry for?

"You're bleeding," said Lily

"What?" asked James confused that was the last thing he was expecting to hear, weren't they supposed to have a long talk about their relationship and their baby and the future and stuff.

"Your face, what happened?" she said sitting up and touched his face where there was a cut.

"Oh uh…"

"You went to see Peter," it wasn't a question, it was just a statement.



"He's down at booking with Sirius, with a one way ticket to Azkaban"

"Well, I guess I better get that cleaned up in case it gets infected," said Lily getting up and going into the bathroom.

She came back in with a first aid kit, and started to clean the cut on James' face.

"So…" he said.


"You didn't tell me what you were sorry for"

"Isn't it obvious?"

"No, if anything I should be apologizing to you, I brought Peter into your life. If it wasn't for me, none of this would have happened to you. I should have fought the curse off, I shouldn't have given in, I deserve everything I get"

"No you have done nothing wrong. This is all my fault I just assumed you were cheating on me of your own free will, I should have trusted you, I should have known…"

"No I should have fought harder"

"How could you? No' one can fight that off"

"I could have tried"

"James look at me, this wasn't your fault how could you have known. I knew, you saw the memory I could have told you then but I didn't. I kept all this from you and I'm sorry"

"You're pregnant, you've been going through so much"

"Being pregnant isn't an excuse I should have come and talked to you about it"

"Lily, I don't care well of course I do care, but I just want you to be happy," said James.

"Will you stop? I've been a complete bitch to you. You never did anything wrong and I… I didn't even come to you about the baby…"

"The baby… what about the baby?"

"You saw what happened, I shouldn't have survived that, I still don't know what the hell that was," said Lily.

"Stop, none of this is your fault"

"I could've done more. I've caused us both unnecessary hurt and pain. I hated myself so much for loving you, because I wanted to put you out of my mind but…" said Lily who was now breaking down.

"Don't, stop it please," said James hugging Lily

"I'm sorry it's just… I spent so long preparing myself… and the all the time you were who I thought you were all the time, but now I've ruined everything"

"No, stop it, you're getting yourself into a state over nothing," said James pulling away and looking Lily straight in the eye, "We'll go to the healer this afternoon and find out what happened the night you were attacked"

"Okay, but what about everything else?" asked Lily, looking to James to make everything better.

"Everything will be fine, I promise"

"What about…"

"And if you want me to, I'll go down to the Ministry right now and do everything I can to stop the divorce going through, if you want me to that is,"

"No," said Lily shaking her head.

'She's still not going to come back, she really doesn't want me anymore' thought James heartbroken.

Seeing the look on his face, Lily realized what he was thinking.

"It's not why you think. Its… there's no divorce to stop going through," she said.

"What are you talking about? I signed the papers…"

"But I didn't"

"What of course you did, you signed weeks ago"

"No I didn't, my priority then was just to get you to sign, but then when you did sign, I didn't want you to and I couldn't sign…"

"But you said…"

"I know, I didn't want you to know how much I still loved you, to the point where I couldn't even sign a few papers"

"You still love me?"

Lily threw her arms around James' neck and hugged, "Yes, I never stopped, I was just hoping it would go away"

James wrapped his arms around Lily, who was crying again.

"Shhh it's alright, you don't have to cry,"

"I'm sorry I can't even control it, I'm just crying all the time,"

"It's alright, I've told you stop apologizing you nothing to be sorry for," said James pulling away and gently wiping Lily's tears away with his thumb, "I love you, you know that. I've barely survived these past few weeks without you…"

James was cut off by Lily pressing her lips to his.

"I want to be your wife again if you'll let me, and…"

"Let you I was about to get on my knees and beg you to come back… again"

"Are you sure? I'd understand if you… after all I've…"

"I have been dying for you to come back ever since you left, and I told you you've done nothing wrong," said James pulling Lily back into his arms, "I love you so much, I swear I'll never give you a reason to leave again"

"I won't ever, I won't ever give you a reason to doubt how much I love you," said Lily clinging onto him.

"We'll be better this time, I promise just you, me and our baby," said James pulling Lily as close to him as he could, never wanting to let go of her.
