Chapter 3

A/N: Howdy Owdy Odie Oo! I hope you liked the previous chapter.

Yes, my friends, this is the final chapter! I can tell just how upset you are!


Harry jaw could have hit the floor

"What happens next?!?!" he demanded. Ginny placed her lips against his to shut him up. She broke it off, and Harry was so surprised he couldn't speak. Ginny winked at Sirius and Remus, who exchanged glances before continuing.

"All this was happening while Sirius was snogging Cassie." "We were not snogging, but you and Vanessa were!" "Yes you were. Come on, let's tell the story."


James was running as fast as he could to the hospital wing. The door flew open magically in front of him, and he ran in, Lily still unconscious in his arms.

Madam Pomfrey had been talking to Dumbledore when she saw James, carrying Lily, come bursting in, both of them soaking wet. Dumbledore and Pomfrey rushed over. "What happened?" asked Pomfrey. James laid Lily on the bed while explaining in a panic. "Lily was standing on a rock next to the lake. I called to her, and she started walking. She slipped, hit her head on the rock, and fell in the lake. I dove in after her, and brought her here. She was unconscious when I got to her." James eyes were wide in panic as Pomfrey checked her pulse, tucked her in, and started to prepare medicine. Dumbledore put a comforting hand on his shoulder. "Calm down, my dear boy, Poppy is taking care of her." James relaxed slightly, but Dumbledore was also worried. Lily hadn't woken yet.

"Head injury- possible trauma- broken arm- slow pulse- sprained ankle." Poppy said. "We can't move her. We have to wait until she wakes up to treat her. It may be anywhere from a day to a year. We can only wait. Mr. Potter, perhaps you should go back to your dorm." James shook his head, and sat down in a chair next to her bed. "I'm staying here." he said firmly, taking her hand in his. Poppy nodded, promised to come back soon, and walked to her office to look up medication. Dumbledore walked out, probably to inform the teachers of what happened.

James just sat there, looking at Lily. She just fell into a lake! She'd be all right.

"A freezing lake that she fell into after cracking her head open on a rock." said a nasty little voice in the back of his brain. James kissed Lily's hand. "Come on, Lil. You have to wake up." he thought, brushing a strand of hair away from her face. "At least its Christmas vacation." he thought, giving a weak chuckle.


Lily vaguely remembered falling into a lake. She felt someone kiss her hand. She was very comfortable. She heard a voice, "Come on, Lil. You have to wake up." The voice seemed to come from inside her head. "Wake up? It's so nice right now..."


Sirius, Remus, and Peter walked quickly towards the hospital wing. Dumbledore had met them on their way to the lake and told them what happened. Opening the door, Remus motioned for them to be quiet.

Stepping inside, the three friends saw Lily. She was unconscious, her red hair spread out on her pillow. James sat in a chair next to her. His arms were folded on the side of the bed, Lily's hand in his. He was asleep, a troubled look on is face. Exchanging looks, the three walked over to their friends. They pulled up chairs, and sat silently, hoping that Lily would wake.


"Deep." commented Ron. Hermione slapped him upside the head. "What I do?" he asked. Harry was running a hand up and down Ginny's side. "Well, when does she wake up?" asked Ginny. Sirius winked. "How do you know that she is ever going to wake up?" he asked mysteriously. Ginny rolled her eyes. "Because I'm sitting in the lap of their child." she said icily. Harry grinned. "Can't deny that." Exchanging furtive glances, Remus and Sirius picked up the story line again.


James woke up with a start. He saw the others, and smiled. "She isn't awake?" he whispered, caressing her cheek. Remus shook his head. James leaned over her slightly. The others looked away, pretending not to notice this. "Lil, please wake up soon. I need you here." He hesitated, before leaning down and kissing her. The others exchanged amused looks. James broke it off, and sat back down.

Lily was shifting back and forth. Her eyes fluttered open, and she gave an exhausted smile at James. Remus, Sirius, and Peter immediately went to get Madam Pomfrey.

"Oh, James." whispered Lily. James had a few tears in his eyes. "You're alright." he whispered back. "Lily, I love you." She smiled, and touched his cheek. "I love you to, James." she whispered. He smiled, and gently kissed her again.

And the rest is history.


Hermione and Ginny both had tears in their eyes. "His kiss woke her up! It's just like a fairytale." Hermione said, Ginny nodding vigorously in agreement. "Thanks for telling us that." agreed Ron.

"Thanks." said Harry. He leaned his head on Ginny's shoulder, looking happy.

"Would you like to hear the 'Harry is a Halloween baby!' story?" asked Remus mysteriously. Ginny grinned, and leaned forward. "I'd like to hear that." Harry went red.

"Well," began Remus, "when we found out Lily was pregnant, we decided to have a bet..."
