A/N: I know I'm starting too many fics that I haven't finished, but I was thinking of 'Confessions Part 2' by Usher and wondered whether I would be able to pass off a suitable story with it. So, all I can say is please try to read it, if you feel inclined to, and when you're done please drop a review.
These are my confessions
Just when I thought I said all I could say
My chick on the side said she got one on the way
Lily Evans looked up. She was now working at the Ministry of Magic as a secretary. And the last person she expected to see was James Potter, one of her old class mates. They had dated in the last year of Hogwarts, but Lily had decided to break it up before things got too deep.
But when she went to work, she noticed him in one of the offices, and her heart surged with an unfamiliar emotion. She started to stack invoices and stuff on her desk in the hopes that he wouldn't notice her, but it was a vain hope, because he did notice her. With her red hair, it wasn't that difficult to notice her. He stood up, and walked out of the office, sparing her an inquisitive glance, to which she just nodded her head in answer to his unspoken question.
He looked at her and motioned to his office, and Lily stood up, knocking things to the floor. She received some stares, but it was nothing she couldn't handle. She followed James, and closed the door behind her back.
"So, you're working at the Ministry now?" James asked as soon as the door closed. Lily couldn't think of anything to say to this, so she just nodded. James ran his fingers through his hair in a distracted way, as if he didn't know what to think.
"Well, I'm not going to be in very long so I'm going to make this very brief. Are you going to be a secretary very long?"
Lily shrugged her shoulders, not sure when she was going to get a promotion.
"Okay, well, I have some things I need to do, so I'll talk to you later, kay, Lils?"
Lily shrugged again, feeling as though she were going to cry over something in James' voice. She turned around and headed toward the door. The last thing she heard was, "I'm going to pick you up about seven, Michelle, okay?"
When Lily walked into her apartment later that evening, her best friend Alice was standing in the front room, waiting for Frank Longbottom, her boyfriend from Hogwarts.
Alice stopped smiling as she noticed the dejected look on Lily's face. "What happened, Lils? You look depressed."
"Why did I ever break it up with him?" Lily wailed, sitting on a chair and letting her shoulders slump.
"Yeah, why did I have to break up with him?" Lily said with despair in her voice. Alice knelt down in front of her.
Lily looked at her, and Alice had to smile. "You broke up with him, because you didn't want to be like all the rest of the girls James did," she answered, her blue eyes smiling.
"Yeah, well, that still doesn't make it any easier," Lily retorted, sniffing gently.
At that moment, the door bell rang and Alice stood. "There's Frank," she said excitedly. Lily laughed.
"Go answer the door, then, silly," she chastised gently.
Alice shook her head exasperatedly but answered the door. "Hi, Alice," came the unmistakable voice of Frank Longbottom.
Lily stood up and vanished from the room.
These are my confessions
Man I'm thrown and I don't know what to do
I guess I gotta give part 2 of my confessions
James walked into the apartment he shared with Sirius, feeling exhausted but not exactly sure why. He had been hoping to talk to Lily before he went on his date with Michelle. But she vanished before he could. Well, at least he could send her an owl, asking if he could see her after work.
"Prongs, old buddy, you're home. Wait, what's wrong? You look as though you'd just seen one of those white sheet things," Sirius commented from his spot in the kitchen.
"Nice of you to notice," James muttered. He walked into the bathroom and started shaving, trying not to nick himself in the process. Sirius walked in, making James look at him sharply. "What do you want?" he asked irritably.
"Just wanted to say hi to my best friend. What's gotten into you, Prongs?"
James shrugged. "Why do you think that something's gotten into me?"
"You're just acting very odd today. What has gotten into you?"
"Nothing. It's nothing," James said under his breath, and turned back to the mirror.
Sirius shrugged and walked out. James sighed, but then he started sharply. He'd just cut himself.
When he stopped by Michelle's house two hours later, he couldn't stop thinking about a certain redhead he hadn't seen in two years, ever since she broke up with him.
His thoughts were interrupted when Michelle walked out. She was a pretty girl, with shoulder length hazel brown hair, and dark green eyes, not as bright though as Lily's.
Why am I thinking of Lily? James asked himself. Again his thoughts were interrupted by Michelle, who was wearing a tight shirt that showed off her toned stomach to advantage. It was a type of shirt that Lily would never have chosen herself.
But he opened his door and got out, then walked around his car to open hers. She smiled at him, and got in. James walked back around to his side, where he climbed in and shut the door behind himself. "So, where do you want to go, Michelle?" he asked as he pulled out.
"How about we go dancing in one of the clubs I heard about?"
"Sure. Where is it?"
Michelle gave him directions, and then he was climbing out and opening her door.
As they walked into the club, they could hear strains of a song that James had never heard before, but obviously Michelle had. She was dancing when they walked through the door, making James wonder…
I feel you creeping,
I can see it from my shadow
Wanna jump up in my comborghini Gallardo
Maybe go to my place and just kick it like Taebo
And possibly bend you over look back and watch me
Smack that all on the floor
Smack that give me some more
Smack that till you get sore
Smack that – ooh oooh
James was shocked at the song, and the way that Michelle was dancing to it. She'd tried to get him onto the floor but he'd refused, wanting to wait till a certain song came on.
As he sat there, he saw the one person that he had not expected to see wearing tight clothes: Lily Evans. She was on the floor dancing as dirty as Michelle at the moment.
When the song was over, James tuned back in and realized that Michelle was talking to Lily as though she knew her. Lily was smiling and answering back as best she could before another song came on.
Now everyone report to the dance floor
To the dance floor, to the dance floor
Now everyone report to the dance floor
Alright Stop!...Pajama time
Lily started dancing again and she was as dirty as before, shaking her hips and raising her hands in the air. James sat back, refusing to dance with Michelle. She just shrugged and went back to the dance floor.
Now I'm gonna make you dance
It's your chance
Yeah boy shake that ass
Oops I mean girl girl girl girl
Girl you know you're my world
Alright now lose it
Just lose it
Oh baby, baby
Now James was really shocked and shook his head in dismay, finally blocking out the song completely.
When that song was over, both Lily and Michelle walked over to the table James was sitting at, talking animatedly.
But when Lily saw who was sitting there, she shied away and headed back to the dance floor, where another song was playing. James got up for this one, pulling Michelle along with him.
8 o'clock, Monday night and I'm waitin'
To finally talk to a girl a little cooler than me.
Her name is Nona, she's a rocker with a nose ring,
She wears a two way, but I'm not quite sure what that means.
And when she walks,
All the wind blows and the angels sing.
She doesn't notice me!
James remembered this song because that was sort of the way he'd felt for close to seven years. He'd been chasing Lily for over six years when she finally went out with him. But then she broke up with him, using some excuse about not studying the way she should have been. It had broken James's heart to think of the look she'd given him. It looked as though she never had wanted to break up with him.
Cause she is watchin' wrestling
Creamin' over tough guys
Listenin' to rap metal
Turntables in her eyes
It's like a bad movie
She is lookin' through me
If you were me, then you'd be
Screamin' "Someone shoot me!"
As I fail miserably,
Tryin' to get the girl all the bad guys want.
She's the girl all the bad guys want!
James was still dancing but he was slowing himself down with a sudden thought. Is Lily still wary of me?
He looked toward the place she was dancing. He shook his head, and walked back toward the table he'd been sitting at. Michelle looked at him in exasperation but then she turned back toward the sound system and danced as dirty as before. Only James didn't notice.
If I'm gonna tell it then I gotta tell it all
Damn near cried when I got that phone call
I'm so throwed and I don't know what to do
But to give you part 2 of my confessions
A/N: okay, this is where I'm going to tell every body that I have no experience with clubs, so those of you who do have experience, please tell me if I had it correct. And I don't take credit for the music; they just worked out perfectly for the story. The first song is "Smack That" by Akon and Eminem, the second song is "Just lose It" by Eminem, and the third song is "Girl All the Bad Guys Want" by a band I can't remember at the moment. But please review! I live and breathe hearing from my readers!
