.Yet another spur-of-the-moment story, but this one will have multiple chapters. Each chapter is a little clip from each year in Hogwarts. Enjoy, and remember: reviews are loved!
James Potter was never good with rejection. No matter how many times Lily Evans would turn him down, he never gave up. After all, he figured, he was James Potter. The entire Hogwarts female population was willing to throw themselves at him. Therefore, he endlessly pursued her throughout their 7 years at Hogwarts.
James Potter, Sirius Black, Peter Pettigrew and Remus Lupin were taking a stroll around the lake during their free time after classes. It was their first week at Hogwarts, and the boys were busily discussing their plans to wreck havoc on unsuspecting teachers.
"We should steal Binns's lesson plans. I've always wanted to see him show some emotion." James said thoughtfully. Sirius nodded eagerly. "Wonder what he'd do if he wasn't able to read off parchment for his class." Mused Remus.
Peter opened his mouth to speak, but was cut off when he ran into James, who had stopped suddenly. Sirius gave him a curious look. "What's up, mate?" James pointed wordlessly to a tree a few hundred feet away from them. "Nice…tree?" Sirius said slowly. James whacked him upside the head. "Not the tree, you dolt! Look under the tree!"
Lying underneath the tree was a group of girls in their year. All Gryffindors, one was blonde, the other brunette, one raven-haired, and a girl with bright red hair. James was staring openly at the redhead. Sirius caught on. "Ah. I see. Pretty girls." James nodded. Remus gave him a little push, and the four boys started towards the chatting Gryffindors.
The first one to notice their presence was the brunette. She nudged the redhead, who looked up at them. James thought he felt his heart stop. She had a face covered in freckles, and her eyes were like shining emeralds. "Can we help you?" She asked pleasantly. All of the boys turned towards James. He opened his mouth to speak, but no noise came out. He tried again. "I-I-Hamanah."
The blonde dissolved into a fit of badly concealed laughter as Sirius began to slam his head against the tree. The redhead, who was obviously trying to keep a straight face, stood up and stuck out her hand. "Lily Evans." She said, again in her pleasant tone. James swallowed and shook her hand. For some reason, her touch made his hand tingle. "James Potter." The two simply stared at each other for a few seconds before the blonde girl spoke up. "Care to introduce yourselves, or are we going to stand in silence all day?"
Sirius grinned and stuck out a hand for her to shake. "Sirius Black." She smiled. "Leila Phillipa. Glad to see that at least one of you is capable of speaking English." James blushed, but was saved from humiliation by Remus. "Remus Lupin." He said, grinning at the girls. The brunette introduced herself as Alice Edwards, and the raven-haired girl said her name was Emmeline Vance. "Any reason you came over here?" Lily asked, eyeing James. "Oh, James said you were pre-"James cut Peter off, blushing furiously. "I just figured, since we're all Gryffindors, we might as well get to know each other." The girls nodded. "Hey, we'd better get going." Alice said, standing up. "We've got homework to finish up before the library closes." The other girls also stood and said good-bye to the boys before starting off towards the castle. When they were out of earshot, Sirius turned to James, grinning. James scowled. "Not a word, Sirius." Sirius simply shook his head and started off, still grinning. "You're lucky they weren't the giggly type, James." James rolled his eyes and followed Sirius. However, his mind was on a certain red-haired girl and how her touch had made him feel as if his hand was on fire.
