Little piece I thought of last night, at about Midnight whilst I was waiting for Pottermore.

Disclaimer: I don't anything, unfortunately.

Oh and at the end if you liked it, or didn't, please write a little review :)


She stopped.

The polite thing for her to do would be to hear him out, but in the case of James Potter maybe she had listened one time too many.

She started moving again, why should she waste her time on him when she needed to pack, after all the train leaves tomorrow?

"Lily! Wait!"

He sprinted down the corridor and stood in front of the door, blocking the way into the Gryffindor common room.

"What do you want Potter?" Lily asked coolly.


"Well spit it out. You've never had a problem with words before!"

"It's difficult."

"More difficult than the time you stood up in front of the whole school and explicitly announced, very loudly, that one day I shall bear your children?"

"As a matter of fact, yes."

Lily raised her eyebrows. Was James finally deflating his enormous ego?

"I just wanted to tell you that... well before you go home tomorrow that..."


"I love you."

She sighed. Perhaps not. How many times had she heard these words leave his mouth? Each time it was more ridiculous and extravagant than last. However, he had never done it with just those two in on the conversation. Where were his faithful marauders?

"I've loved you ever since you first turned me down in our third year, when I asked you to Hogsmeade during transfiguration."

Lily tried to do quick maths in her head. It had been...

"Three years, 8 months, 1 week, 3 days, 4 hours and," He checked his watch "17 minutes."

"That's a long time," she murmured.

"Yeah, it is. Ever since then I've known that all I ever wanted was to hold you, kiss you, protect you, love you, marry you, and mostly defiantly have children with you; Beautiful, sexy Potter children."

Lily scoffed.

"I'm sorry, that was big headed of me..."

"Yeah, it was."

"But if you want, I'll stop being big headed, I'll change. I'll become anything you want me to, as long as you'll love me in return. I will change for you for Lily. All you have to do is say yes."

He stared into her brilliant green eyes whilst she searched his deep almond eyes for any hint of deceit. Her salient features hid her emotion well while his glasses projected his expression to the world.

Nobody had ever changed for her before. Not even Severus, in spite of the fact that she begged him not to go with his precious death eaters. James would never leave her for a cause so horrid, she was sure of this.

But Severus was always so understanding and somewhat caring, could James be like that? Could James be everything she needed? But then again, could she find a way to bring Sev back to the light? Find a way to make him see sense?

"Maybe..." she thought.

Before she came to a definite conclusion in her head, a simple two letter word had left her lips.

And deep down she knew she wouldn't ever regret it.
