Summary: Have you ever wondered how you would react if your grandchildren suddenly appeared out of thin air. When you were 16 years old? No, I didn't think so. I never did either, so I was not prepared for when it did happen.
Disclaimer: I do not own any of the characters or locations described. I wish I did.
My first try at a proper story. Hope you like it. Please Review. Oh and this entire story will be in Lily's POV. Unless it says otherwise.
Chapter 1: The Arrival.
I was furious. Every bloody day I had to endure Potter's antics and now I had to put up with the rest of his mates. Even Remus was in on it and he's supposed to be the responsible one. I stalked through the corridors not bothering to be polite to the people I was pushing past. They would pay for this. They would pay big.
All the corridors had been covered in fluoro pink posters. Each said in giant letters: "LILY AND JAMES 4EVER". Only the marauders would come up with this. I arrived at the portrait hole and practically growled the password at the fat lady. She gave me a half sympathetic, half annoyed look before allowing me inside. The anger inside me raged as I saw the four idiots sitting by the fire.
"POTTER!", I screamed. I would show no mercy.
He glanced up from his wizard chess game with Sirius and immediately a huge grin spread across his face.
"Hey Lily, what can I do for you?", he asked in what he clearly thought was a winning voice. It only made me angrier. My scowl deepened and my hands curled into fists.
"What the hell were you thinking when you put up those stupid posters? Do you have a death wish? I can't believe that you are so stupid and shallow and arrogant and selfish and such an ASS!", I screeched at him. His expression did not change. Sirius stood up and slung an arm over my shoulders.
"You see Lily, we decided that seeing as you couldn't figure it out for yourself, we would let the rest of the school know and then they could convince you. Even Moony thought it would work.", he explained in a voice that you use with a two year old.
"Get OFF me Black! And figure what out exactly?", I asked crossing my arms impatiently. James and Sirius exchanged exasperated looks before Sirius answered.
"That you're in love with James, of course."
That did it. I let out a scream of rage and whipped out my wand but at that moment a loud bang echoed around the room and three children appeared out of thin air. They all tumbled to the ground in a heap and remained motionless.
Everyone gasped. They looked so young. Barely even Hogwarts age. There were three, two boys and one girl. The boys both had black hair and looked fairly similar but the girl had fiery red hair that reminded me of the famous Weasley hair. Maybe she could be a relative. The boys looked so much like James though. I glanced nervously at the others. Nobody was sure what to do.
"Umm, should we move them onto the sofas maybe?", James suggested.
"Yeah, I guess", Remus replied slowly.
We moved each unconscious child to the sofas by the fire and debated on whether to wake them up or not.
"I still think we should go to Dumbledore right now", I repeated.
"Lily, let's just let them regain consciousness first", Remus told me.
The little girl moaned at that point. Everyone snapped their eyes to her. She frowned slightly and muttered something about killing James. Everyone looked confusedly at James who was frowning.
Slowly, the girls eyelids fluttered open and she blinked blearily up at us. Her expression immediately became alarmed. After a quick glance at the other two boys she frowned at James.
Then she spoke in a small, bewildered voice, "Dad, what did you do to your eyes?"
This question sent everyone spinning. Did she just call James "dad"? And why was she questioning his eye colour? They were the same brown they always were.
"Umm, kid, I think you've got the wrong guy. I'm only 16 and I'm not your dad.", James said in an unsure voice.
This made her frown. She examined the boys again and then examined us. She looked at Remus, Peter and Sirius with a curious expression and when she looked at James her frown returned. Then as she examined me, her brown eyes widened and a gasp escaped her lips.
"What? What's wrong?", I asked frantically. She just continued to stare into my face.
James looked just as worried as I was. Maybe he wasn't such a jerk after all.
Desperate to get the girl talking, I asked the only thing I could think of.
"What's your name?"
"Lily", she breathed. Another gasp escaped everyone. Her name was Lily, too? This was just too weird.
"Really? My name is Lily as well", I said cheerfully.
"I know. You're Lily Evans aren't you? And your James Potter", she said softly pointing to us as she spoke our names. We both nodded in response. Suddenly she was shaking the boys awake.
The boys were soon stirring and one of them woke first. His eyes opened to reveal the same shade as the girl's. Maybe all three were related then. He seemed to be the older of the trio and was staring warily at James. The last finally woke when the older boy jabbed him in the ribs with an elbow. His eyes opened, only to reveal my own staring back at me. He had my eyes.
There was only silence. I couldn't understand it. The only thing that made sense now was why Lily had stared at my face. She had recognised the eyes of the boy. Remus was the first to recover. He shook his head quickly then put on a friendly face.
"I'm sorry, I don't mean to sound rude but, who are you?", he asked calmly.
The oldest responded cautiously, eyeing each of us warily before speaking.
"I'm James Potter, this is my younger brother Albus and this is my little sister Lily".
Lily was still staring at me curiously. I gave her a small smile, it was all I was capable of at the moment. She returned it then said softly "You're my grandmother".
