The rest of the week went by in a blur for the Marauders. Peter was placed in another dormitory for his own protection against the still furious James and Sirius, while Remus was more quiet and tired looking than usual.
The whole week Remus was pointed at and whispered about, people barely went in a ten-foot radius of him in the hallways and most of the students stopped talking to him.
However bad, the last couple of weeks went for the marauders they were finally happy. It was the last day of Hogwarts and although they were sad to be leaving, this day marked a new time in their lives. A day to start over and to move on from all the drama at school, the people they hated and from the childish antics they used to play, (well maybe not that one, but you get the point.)
The graduation ceremony went fairly well, and almost every graduating witch and wizards' family was there. The marauders graduated with a bang, literally.
At the end of the graduation ceremony, when every one was getting up to leave and celebrate, Sirius ran up to the stage to get everyone's attention. "Lady's and gentlemen, I now will give you the marauders' last prank of the year!"
With a huge bang, a cloud of smoke engulfed the whole crowd of people, when the smoke finally drifted away, all of the Slytherins' robes had been turned an obnoxiously bright pink color. Every one in the crowd laughed, well that is besides the angry Slytherins and their parents. Even the Professors let out a small laugh, that is, besides the head of Slytherin and Professor McGonagall, whose lips were pulled back into a thin line on her face, but if you looked in her eyes, you could tell she was trying to keep the smile off of her face.
After the prank, Sirius ran off of the stage and got lost in the crowd before any Slytherin could pounce on him.
"Oh, Mum, Dad!" Lily called out to her parents after Sirius' prank.
"Hey, honey, congratulations!" Lily's mom called out.
"Thanks." Lily said, when she got up to her parents.
"We are so proud of you." Her dad said as she pulled Lily into a hug.
"Thanks, Dad. Oh, I want you guys to meet someone." Lily said as she grabbed James, from out of the crowd and took his hand.
"James this is my mum, and dad, Mum, Dad, this is James, my boyfriend."
"It's very nice to meet you, Mr. and Mrs. Evans." James said shyly.
"It's nice to meet you too, James, we have heard much about you." Lily's mom said while winking at Lily.
Lily blushed slightly as James gave her a curious look.
"Where is Petunia?" Lily asked hoping that her sister was just upset when she sent her that letter a few weeks ago and that Petunia really did want to see her and talk to her again. Although, by the sad look that came from her mother's face, Lily knew that Petunia had been serous when she sent Lily the letter. Lily would probably never see or talk to her sister again.
"I'm sorry, Lily, she didn't come." Was all her father said.
"Oh, well that's alright." Lily replied while looking at the ground. She could feel James give her hand a little squeeze, so she looked up and smiled at him. "Well, we are going to take the train home for the last time, I'll apparate home. See you guys there." Lily said, as she let go of James hand and gave her parents both a quick peck on the cheek.
Lily took James hand and walked away from her parents, "You know that day you found me crying in the astronomy tower…" And the truth finally came out about why Lily was so upset.
At the end of her explanation, James knew he could say nothing at the moment to make Lily feel better, so he wrapped his arms around her and gave her a tight hug. Lily smiled and wrapped her arms around James, they both looked at each other and before they knew it, they were kissing each other lovingly in front of the whole crowd. James started rub his tongue against Lily's lip to ask for entrance, but before Lily could accept. Remus interrupted, "Get a room!" Which broke the two apart immediately.
Remus, Lily and James walked to the train together, not knowing where Sirius had gone.
"He must be in on the train already. Probably in our usual seats." Remus stated as he opened the door to their seats.
Remus just stood there with his mouth open as Lily and James peeked over his shoulders to see what was going on. Sirius was sitting in his usual seat, but on top of him was a black haired witch. She straddled him as she kissed his jaw line and neck. James had never heard noises like the ones Sirius was making before, and usually Sirius was the one in charge. Well, that's what Sirius always told James. This girl looked as if she had Sirius wrapped around her finger.
When Sirius started to move his hands up the witch's shirt and toward her breast, the three friends watching screamed, "No!"
The black haired witch pulled away and looked at the three friends starring into the compartment. Sirius turned his head to face his friends with a smirk on his face, "James, Remus, Lily, this is Catherine, Catherine, meet James, Remus and Lily,"
"Uh, nice to meet you." Catherine said as she got off Sirius and took a seat next to him.
"Nice to meet you too." James finally said as he took a seat across from Sirius, Remus and Lily followed.
At the end of the train ride home, Remus, James, Sirius, Lily and Catherine got off the train and stood around in a small group at the train station.
"I'll see you guys soon." James said to Remus before the group went their own separate ways.
"Yeah, defiantly. Oh and Sirius don't be lazy, pick up a quill and write to us sometimes!" Remus said jokingly.
"I'm offended, I wrote to you two times last summer! That's a new record for me, besides I see you guys practically every day!" Sirius said in mock outrage.
"See you guys soon," James said, not wanting to take part in the fake argument. He grabbed Lily's hand and walked away. Sirius let out a whistle behind them, "Oh want to say goodbye to the lady, in private I see!" He yelled after them. James just rolled his eyes and kept walking.
"You'll write, won't you?" Said Lily as the two rounded to corner away from their friends.
"Of course and I plan on spending a lot of time with you this summer, that is of course if you want to." James replied.
Lily just gave him an exasperated look and out of nowhere, grabbed his face and kissed him. James immediately started kissing Lily back and soon Lily was pushed flat against one of the pillars in the train station, their bodies pushed together as close as possible.
Lily pulled away slightly, "My parents are expecting me home soon, let's finish this…"
"Tomorrow." James finished for her.
"Tomorrow." Lily said.
James gave Lily a quick kiss goodbye and the two of the apparated to their homes.
