My computer broke down the last time I wrote this, so here we go again! Hello everyone :D Its the final chapter in this series of 'notes'! I am dedicating this one to my older sister Felicity, thank you very much for the ideas you've given me while writing this story and thank you for telling me my writing is atrocious:P Anyway! I hope you all like this final chapter, it's been great fun writing this 'story' and Im so pleased with the response I got :D Im also really happy I took some of the reviewers'advice and kept going with it instead of leaving it at a oneshot, thanks very much you guys :D And to the reviewer who suggested Care of Magical Creatures and Divination (I think thats what was suggested) I really wanted to do chapters on those, but I as I began to write Notes In Defense I suddenly knew how to end it :D But thanks again for all your suggestions!
Yours Truly :D
P.S Peter mysteriously got left out of this chapter, oh what a shame... ;)
B- Ben Smith, all will be explained!
I hope you enjoy it :D
Notes in Defense
L- Holy shit.
T- Shit, shit, shit.
L- What am I going to do? I have to go speak with him at eight and that's precisely in…eleven hours!
N- Kill yourself.
T- How did we get caught? How the hell did we get caught?
L- That damn cloak is useless! How James gets away with it, I don't know.
N- What are you going to tell him?
L- That it was the guy's that wrote it and that they had been messing around.
T- That's not bad actually; do you think he'd fall for it?
L- And why not?
N- Because he'll have done a charm to see who wrote what. He is a Charms Professor after all.
L- Damn, I hadn't thought of that.
T- Just tell him the truth, that we're in love with him and gladly accept being his three wives.
N- Or lie and tell him we were just joking.
L- I think I'll go with Nicole on this one.
N- Good choice.
L- Ok, so I'll just say…Nicole, help me out here.
N- Let's act this out. I'll be Professor Smith and you are… you.
N- Would you care to explain this note Miss Evans?
L- Well, we were finished with our class assignment and had nothing to do when we simply started joking with each other and my friend asked what your first name was. It basically escalated from there to guessing your name. So you see professor, it was all one big glorious joke. I love you.
T- Leave out the 'I love you' and you'll be fine! I wonder why he only asked you to go to his office though…
N- Probably so that it wouldn't be three against one.
T- Probably. That or he wants to confess his undying love fo-…
N- Earth to Tasha!
L- What is she staring at?
N- Who kno…
L- God, what is everyone staring at?!
T- Turn your head.
L- I still don't see any…fuck!
J- What's that git doing here?
S- Well, right now, he's checking out your girlfriend.
J- Is this you joking?
S- Nope, this is me being serious Sirius.
J- Remus, what's he asking Professor Thomas about?
R- He wants to talk to one of the students about something or other.
J- I'm going to kill that fucking bastard.
S- I might just be imagining things, James.
J- The fact he's signaling for Lily to leave with him really does beg to differ. Escupolosis.
S- Why did you just slip a piece of paper in Lily's pocket when she walked by? I don't think a piece of paper is going to help you mate.
J- It's charmed to record what they're saying. And since we have the original piece of paper it was torn from, we get to see what it's writing down and what they are both saying.
S- …I am slightly confused.
R- We are basically spying on Professor Smith and Lily.
S- Oh good.
J- Look! They're starting to speak.
L- Professor Smith, if this is about the note, which I am certain it is, and my failed attempt at getting it back, then I apologize once again. I just hope that your opinion of me hasn't lessened any, like I think it already has.
B- Because you have feelings for me?
L- Professor Smith, that entire note was a joke that unfortunately seemed to get out of hand.
B- Miss Evans…Lily. Please answer my question.
L- Well of course I do sir; you're a professor that I admire. I feel respect for you and I think you are a very intelligent wizard.
B- Lily, you are the brightest young woman in your year, but right now I fear you are not listening to what I am telling you.
L- Professor, I don't understand what you mean.
B- Lily, I am calling you by your first name, am I not?
L- Well, yes…so?
B- I think it is only fair if you call me by mine.
J- I bet you'd like that you fucking git.
R- James, calm down. Let's just see what happens.
L- Professor, why did you call me out of class?
B- Because I won't be free for our appointment tonight since a meeting has come up, so I wished to speak with you now. Shall we find somewhere a little more private than this, or would you like people to listen to what we are saying about that note of yours?
S- They're not speaking anymore, something must be happening.
R- He must be taking her to his office.
S- This might be a total mix up, James.
J- Really? Has a professor ever come up to you and said 'Hey there, call me by my first name as I lead you to an empty classroom?'
R- Calm down mate, Lily's a smart girl, and she continued to call him Professor Smith anyway.
J- What if he tries to do something to her, though?
S- Then we'll storm round to that office of his and murder him, to put it lightly.
N- Are you alright guys? All of you are looking furious and I think Professor Thomas is getting a bit uncomfortable.
S- We've been reading what's going on between Lily and that git out there.
N- What do you mean?
S- James charmed a piece of paper and put it in Lily's pocket and we can read what they're saying here.
N- That doesn't explain why you're all looking like you want to perform one of the Unforgivables, though.
J- Here. Read it.
R- James, calm down. Nothing is actually going on out there. I doubt Professor Smith is going to give up his career for a girl who is too smart to fall for what he's up to.
N- Oh my holy God.
T- What is he thinking?! That is completely irresponsible.
N- We were just joking in that note, well…mostly. But for it to actually happen like this?
S- What would you do if you were in her position?
N- I'd tell him I had a boyfriend and that he could go to hell.
S- Glad to hear it. No Ben Juniors then?
N- Nope, they'll just have to be Sirius Juniors.
R- They're starting to talk again…
L- Professor Smith, I don't understand what is going on, but I assure you that that note was nothing more than a joke shared between me and my friends.
B- Lily, are you really so blind? Have I not showed you precisely how I feel about you? Do you even know what effect you have on me in class? It takes all my self-restraint not to run a hand through your hair or to pull you into my arms.
L- Professor, I have a boyfriend and I… I love him.
B- And I have a career! I am putting my future at risk even telling you this Lily, but ever since I got here I haven't been able to take my eyes off you. Everyday I have to force myself not to watch your every move with the intense passion I feel for you.
L- Professor Smith, you don't seem to understand what I've just told you. I have a boyfriend. I'm in love with him and he means the world to me. I'm not going to lose the one guy I truly care about to have an inappropriate fling with my Charms Professor. In fact, I wouldn't lose him for anything.
B- But Lily, don't you get it? I'm in love with you! I'd leave my job for you!
L- I don't think he even knows how much he means to me. I've had boyfriends before, but none like him. None I truly, truly care about. None that make me feel like I'm more than just a clever brain and a pretty face. I've always had feelings for him, you know. I just kept refusing him when he asked me out because I was worried he'd break my heart.
B- Lily, what are you talking about?
L- Professor Smith, Ben, I am talking about James Harry Potter. The boy I will never stop loving. And right now? I am going back to class and I am going to look straight into his eyes and tell him I love him.
L- Goodbye Professor Smith.
B- But-But Lily!
R- Where is James going?
T- He's going to find Lily I presume.
R- Tasha, promise me that you'll never run off with some good-looking professor.
T- 'Laughs.' I promise, Remus.
S- It's only been…what? A week? But I hope you know, if Professor Smith starts hitting on you and you both elope to Sweden or wherever, that you'll be the first girl I'd ever cried over.
N- 'Laughs' You really are something Sirius, but yes. I love you too.
T- Look! Writings coming up on the page!
L- James, what are you doing here?
J- You mean everything to me Lily, I never want to let you go. I want to grow old with you, have kids with you and be with you forever. I know I sound like a right sap, but I'm so in love with you Lily.
L- God I love you…
"Where has Mr. Potter run off to? And what are you kids all reading? Bring it up this instance and- Mr. Black! I can not believe you just set that note on fire! Detention…all of you!
R/R Please :P :D I hope it was alright for you all, I have an idea for a sequel which I am working on, but I don't know whether it will work. But thanks for reading everyone :) xxxNoemiexxx
