'A Promise'

You look at me
Curious what I'm made of
Sugar or steam
And what kind of man I love
What I believe
What I know and what I crave
All my pet peeves
Where I've shed and when I stain
Do you know

She hated it when he looked at her like that. Like she was a prize to be won. Like she was a trophy. She wasn't. She was a person. She needed love, she wanted love. She wanted HIM to love HER.


Cause I'm not here to be around
And be that girl that you forget about
Cause all I want is just to be a song
That you can feel longer than just right now
So come on baby let me be the girl
That you can count on to rock your world
And then you'll see there's so much than curves
And then you'll see that you and me belong

Every time he asked her out, she wanted to say yes. She wanted a million kisses, of true love. She wanted her fairy tale, not meaning less 'I love you.' A knight in shining armor.

Do you know my vice
And how to get under my skin
Just what I like
And where I want you to begin
Do you know my middle name
And where I'm sensitive the most
That each night I pray
And do you think I fit that mold
Do you know

What did that arrogant James Potter know about her anyway? That she had 'stunning green eyes?' That she had 'firey red hair?' Did he know that she never had a boyfriend? That she felt alone? That she was a 'freak' for her sister? No. All he knew was that she was another 'trophy' to tag on his arm while the next day he'd go 'win' another, while she was broken. While immersed in thoughts as such she didn't even notice where she was walking till she bumped into something muscular. Potter.

"Look Pott-" She started, "I'm sorry Lily." He smiled a dimpled grin. "I was coming to look for you, I wanted to give you something." Lily was left speachless. He bent forward, infact so close, his forehead rested on hers. She took in a large, but sutble, breath..he smelled amazing...like...like wood, the air, and rain. "I was wondering, for this lovely rose, would you acompany me to Hogsmade? We can go to your favorite resturant." She grabbed the rose, moved a step back so that he fell a bit before catching his balance and smiling. "No thanks...I think i'll stay here" Walking off, she wondered who told him what her favorite flower was and her favorite resturant also.

Cause I'm not here to be around
And be that girl that you forget about
Cause all I want is just to be a song
That you can feel longer than just right now
So come on baby let me be the girl
That you can count on to rock your world
And then you'll see there's so much than curves
And then you'll see that you and me belong

Dreaming of what could have been, or might be, she walked in to a silent dormatory. she plopped down onto her bed and hurt her butt with a rather unpleasnt thud. She looked down and saw a package. She stood up, went over the to the window where the sun was setting, grabbing a book along the way, and setteled herself to open it. While she was unwrapping it, a small picie of pale rose paper fell out.

Roses are red (as your blush) Violets are blue It's never a joke, I turely love you.

PS: Open the box. Please?

James Potter

Inside the box, 17 candles and purple Lily petals, with Honeydukes chocolate and an…Emerald Ring.

Cause I'm not here to be around
And be that girl that you forget about
Cause all I want is just to be a song
That you can feel longer than just right now
So come on baby, let me be the girl
That you can count on to rock your world
And then you'll see there's so much than curves
And then you'll see that you and me belong
You and me belong
You and me belong

And so she made her way toward a very luckly James Potter for a promise. A promise that he won't leave her. And he didn't. He didn't till his last breath.
