James frowned looking at Lilly why was she staring like that at him? why was she so pale? Was she shaking? He couldn't block out his concern for her as she started her song.

I don't want a lot for Christmas

There's just one thing I need

It seemed an odd way to start a song, and Lilly's voice didn't have it's usual husky sexy confident edge.

I don't care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

Not surprising Lilly doesn't seem that kind of spoiled girl…

I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true

All I want for Christmas is...

You

James Listened awestruck she was singing to him, and she was smiling. The song picked up and he was left in shock how was the happening. The only thing running through his head was wake up mate you're dreaming or it must be a Christmas miracle!

I don't want a lot for Christmas

There's just one thing I need

I don't care about the presents

Underneath the Christmas tree

I don't need to hang my stocking

There upon the fireplace

Santa Claus won't make me happy

With a toy on Christmas day

Her hips began to sway with the music and she sang to the crowd, she was announcing this. James's heart started beating faster her blinked furiously, was the vision in front of him really doing this?

I just want you for my own

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true

All I want for Christmas is you

You baby

She went back to staring at him grinning and singing her voice strong and confident again. He was feeling weak now oh Lilly prefect Lilly. Her arm out stretched some and people turned towards him. he didn't care his vision was glued to her.

I won't ask for much this Christmas

I don't even wish for snow

I'm just gonna keep on waiting

Underneath the mistletoe

People started whispering his name and calling out while she sang. Many of the younger years just danced obliviously. James felt slowly being pulled to her, but it was more like gentle prodding's from his friends.

I won't make a list and send it

To the North Pole for Saint Nick

I won't even stay awake to

Hear those magic reindeers click

'Cause I just want you here tonight

Holding on to me so tight

What more can I do

Baby all I want for Christmas is you

Ooh baby

James was becoming more and more convinced and her grin was contagiously passed on to him. He looked at her questioningly one last time and she grinned singing and nodded and pointed.

All the lights are shining

So brightly everywhere

And the sound of children's

Laughter fills the air

And everyone is singing

I hear those sleigh bells ringing

Santa won't you bring me the one I really need

Won't you please bring my baby to me...

James knew now that he was being pushed more forcefully and he started walking across the hall to her. Parting the crowd he had to be there for her for him. He dove through throngs of people screaming his excuses and pushing them apart and he worked up to a jog. Lilly started the final chorus looking at him as he made his way closer and closer to the stage.

Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas

This is all I'm asking for

I just want to see my baby

James hesitated a second before climbed onto the stage easily and heading to his grinning songstress.

Standing right outside my door

Oh I just want you for my own

She kept singing as he took her in his arms, it didn't matter she was singing to him. He felt an amazing burst of triumph as she pulled herself even closer. She finished her final chords quietly just for him, but her voice amplified still rang out anyways.

More than you could ever know

Make my wish come true

Baby all I want for Christmas is...

You

He kissed her passionately as he'd always wanted to do. To claim her as his and know she wanted to be claimed. There was nothing more satisfying then having her smile as they broke apart and grab him for another.

As he sobered up from his drunken state of bliss her realized they were in front of the entire school that was cheering? They were defiantly egging them on. The crowd roared approval and they laughed as people whooped hollered and many calls of "FINNALY!"

James and Lilly both shared a blush and laugh as they jokingly gave a bow and James took her off the stage to let Dumbledore close the night. Sirius and Remus were waiting happy clapping him on the back saying they told him he'd like his gift.

Lilly and James managed to find a quiet place in the doorway where they could talk.

" So all you want is me for Christmas?" he grinned taking her hand affectionately.

"Definitely, I'm so sorry James, I've been an idiot, I've only just realized how fortunate I was to have you," she whispered her green eyes sparkling.

" Wow, Evans giving an apology, to me of all people, well I accept. Now all we have left to do is figure out our kid's names," he said jokingly taking her back inside to the crowd of people going to their dorms.

" Well I don't know about you but I've always liked the name Harry…" Lilly grinned and lead James's befuddled face up the stairs.
