a/n-this is basically a continuation of His Best Man and His Bride. I've been meaning to post this for a while, so I've decided to relieve some of the stress from finals week by posting this. Like the other two stories, there will most likely be five chapters in this one, too. I hope you like it.
Disclaimer-I don't own anything Harry Potter related blah blah blah...
His Best Friend and Her Groom
Lily Evans and Sirius Black are my two favorite people in life. Lily because, well…she's Lily. And as for Sirius…actually, I'm not quite sure why I'm even friends with him. To tell you the truth, he can be a tad annoying most of the time.
Anyway, I've known Lily since Hogwarts, and Sirius even longer. I really don't know what my life would be like if I had never met either of them.
"So, remind me again why he thinks his great 'plan' is going to work this time." Remus said wearily as he and Sirius followed James back to the common room after dinner. "It hasn't worked for the past two months, why does he think it's going to work now?"
Sirius shrugged. "He just does."
Remus just shook his head sadly as James gave the fat lady the password. Once it was open, James quickly clambered through the portrait hole with Remus and Sirius not far behind.
"Ah-ha!" James said as he scanned the common room.
"This isn't going to end well." Remus muttered from behind him.
"What isn't?" Sirius asked.
"That." Remus said, nodding at their friend, who was now approaching none other than Lily Evans, who was peacefully sitting on the couch reading a book. That wasn't going to last very long.
"Hello, my dear Lilyflower." James said, stopping in front of her.
The peaceful expression was gone from her face when she looked up at him.
"What do you want, Potter?" She snapped.
Her unfriendly demeanor did not deter James, however.
"How would you like to go out with me some time?" He asked, combing his hand through his already messy hair.
"How about no." Lily replied shutting her book, standing up, and walking away to the girl's dormitories.
James just stared at the place Lily had been sitting in, an expression of pure disbelief on his face.
"She…She said no."
"I didn't realize you were serious in your belief that she would actually say yes this time." Remus said, coming up behind him.
"It's not funny." James insisted, now acting a bit grumpy.
"Oh, get over it. She's just one girl." Sirius responded. "Besides, there's always tomorrow."
The first six years of my life at Hogwarts was full of many, many tomorrows. In that time, I asked Lily Evans out again and again. And again and again her response was always no. And eventually, a few well-chosen curses and jinxes were thrown in, just to mix things up a bit.
But eventually, my tomorrow came. One day, I asked Lily out and she didn't say no. In fact, she said yes. And kept saying yes. Again and again.
That's how I got here today…you know, at my wedding, because Lily decided to say yes to another one of my questions.
