Promise you won't let go.

Be the Girl by Aslyn

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 James Potter know about her anyway? That she had 'Stunning Green Eyes?' That she had 'Flaming Red Hair?' Did he know that she never had a boyfriend? That she felt alone? No. All he knew was that she was another 'Trophy.' She was immersed in her thoughts, and before she knew it- she bumped into James Potter.

"Hello Lily Marie-"

She didn't know that he knew her middle name. She hadn't told people.

"-Evans.Would you like to go to Hogsmade tonight?" He offered her a Purple Lily. She didn't know that he knew her favorite flower and color either.

"No- but thanks for the Lily." She walked away.

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

As she walked up to her Dormitory, she found a note on her bed.

" 'Roses are red. Violets are blue. It's not a joke. I really do love you.'

PS: Open the box. Please?

James Potter"

Inside the box, 17 candles and Purple Lily Petals, with Honeydukes Chocolate and- [gasp a…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 she went to go get a promise from James Potter. A promise that he won't leave her. And he didn't. He didn't till his last breath.
