A/N: ideas can't stay in my head for very long if I don't bring them to writing. And while I am working on two fics in progress I'm sorry but I can't help it I'm only a human being who enjoys writing. I'll make my best not to neglect any of them for too long.
Anyhow, this one is pure fun and laughter and somewhat fluff (you've gotta have fluff). I hope you'd like it.
A cookie to those that guess where the chapter's title comes from ;)
Unlike every love story or big epic romance we've heard, read or watch in TV or movies, this one was never a meant to be or star written. This one has happened by chance. No, do not confuse it with fate, it was chance. Yes, Pure unpredicted and most amusing chance.
Scorpius Malfoy, an average sixth year Slytherin, did not suspect that the morning of the last day of term before leaving for the Christmas holydays would be a day that'll change his life. Scorpius chewed the tip of his quill; the essay he was trying to write for the last hour wasn't progressing as he wished it would. It seemed that all knowledge about moonstone influence in sleeping draughts faded away from his mind.
"When are you going to give it a rest and join the rest of us in the common room for one last drink before the hols?" a tan hand covered the paragraph he was staring at for the last 10 minutes.
Scorpius narrowed his eyes. "I don't drink." He moved her hand away.
"Merlin, Scorp, lighten up!" she pulled out a chair and set next to him. "It's a miracle you're not glued to this chair otherwise I bet you'd never leave."
"Some people," Scorpius retorted, "Set goals for themselves-"
"Such as yourself." Cleo said in mock seriousness.
"Yes." Scorpius said. "And I'd thank you if you just leave me and let me finish so you can copy it as usual at the last moment."
"You know I wouldn't spend time with you if-"
"-we weren't related." Scorpius finished her words and she stuck out her tongue at him before storming off the library.
The next half hour was uneventful save for a couple loud talking students Madam Pince chased out screaming at them for disturbing the learning environment. He was just about to finish when another series of screams and howls was heard but from outside of the library this time followed by loud running sounds and laughter echoing inside the study hall. Scorpius barely managed to place the book he used for his essay back onto the shelf when suddenly he was pushed back and a hand covered his mouth.
"Shhhh." A soft voice said. Scorpius glanced down and saw the top of a mane of long wavy red hair and was met with a pair of big brown eyes looking up at him. "I'll let go of my hand just don't yell, okay?" Scorpius nodded.
The minute her hand was off Scorpius burst. "What did you do that for?" he demanded.
"Sorry," She said and ran her hand in her long hair. "A bunch of seventh years are after me." she moved a few book aside and peeked through the gap. "A prank gone sour." She restored the books to their place.
"Afraid they're after you?" Scorpius asked and walked back to table he was occupying. "What did you do?"
"Charmed balloons filled with curry to follow them around the hit them right before they enter their classes." She set opposite him.
"Is that all?" he asked dryly while the girl took out a sweet out of her robe pocket and popped it into her mouth.
"Nah," she offered him a sweet but Scorpius shook his head. "Anyways, I may or may not used an old version of said curry." She said. "Oh and my older brother was one of the boys I pranked."
"You used the curry they served last night?"
"The one they served on Saturday." She grinned.
"Lemon curry?!" Scorpius couldn't help himself and laughed. "I'm Scorpius by the way," he waved lamely as his laughter deflected.
"I know," the girl said. "I'm Lily, Potter that is."
"I see." Scorpius got up and started picking up his stuff and put them into his bag. "Well, I hope you're brother and his friends won't catch you or harm you or anything but I must leave."
Lily studied him for a moment. "Would you mind doing me a favor?"
"I'm afraid I'd be under attack once I'll leave here," she got up and handed Scorpius his ink bottle. "Is there a chance you'll walk me back to the Gryffindor tower?"
Scorpius shifted and laughed uncomfortably. "I-I don't think it's a very good idea." He closed his bag and put on his shoulder.
"I'm a Slytherin." He started to walk away but Lily caught up with him.
"Is that all?" Lily asked.
"It does put a stopper to most things doesn't it?"
"No." Lily shook her head and smiled. "It doesn't." she grabbed his hands and led the way out of the library and onto the Gryffindor tower.
He could feel the eyes and stares of passing students and a few of the school portraits as he and Lily walked up and through the corridors of Hogwarts. One fifth year even pointed out and whispered something to her friend; Lily answered her by giving her the two finger salute.
"I feel like a dog." Scorpius said. "Look," he stopped and yanked his hand from Lily's grip. "No one jumped on you or tried to pay you back and this is as far as I'm going-"
"Actually," Lily cut him off. "We're here." She pointed at the Fat Lady portrait not far away from them.
"Oh," Scorpius gave it a swift look. "Goodbye then, Lily." He nodded courtly at her and hoisted his beg once again on his shoulder and started walking away. A hand on his upper arm stopped him. He turned and there was Lily again smiling at him. "Yes?"
Before he knew it Lily's hands gripped him by the hair and her lips crashed against his in what can only be described as a fierce snog and while she pushed him onto the wall and roamed and ruffled his hair Scorpius fumbled with his hands and placed them awkwardly on her waist. This wasn't going as well as he thought his first kiss would go.
They broke away from the kiss gasping for air. Scorpius lips were red and swollen and his hair was a mess, Lily on the other looked just fine if not just a little more flushed than normal.
"Thanks," she said and got on the balls of her feet and kissed his cheek chastely. "Happy Christmas." And she walked away.
"Yeah," Scorpius sounded rather surprised as he touched his cheek. "You welcome."
A/N: whoohooo! So more to come not to worry but this only chapter where Lily is a fourth year and Scorpius is a sixth year.
