Romance

Seventh Year

Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter, This belongs to JK Rowling! Everything, except what I have clearly made up is hers! This goes for the whole story.


I, Lily Evans, was sitting on the Hogwarts Express, in a compartment with my two best friends in the whole world, Evangeline Benoit and Catalina De Luca.

Evangeline or Eva is part Veela. She has Veela blonde hair and hazel eyes. She is fair skinned and though she had lived in England since she was five years old, every once in a while she had a slight French accent. Eva is the girly girl in our trio.

Catalina—or Lina—is Italian. She has lightly tanned skin and almond shaped dark chocolate eyes and brown hair that came to her shoulders. When she gets angry she starts shouting in Italian...mostly to Sirius Black.

Eva and I sat on one side of the compartment while Lina was stretched out across the opposite seat. It is our seventh and final year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and I am Head Girl. I kind of already knew I was going to get it. I was a Prefect, got good grades and only received a detention once. Actually I, Eva and Lina all got that detention. It wasn't our fault of course. No, it was The Marauders—as they called themselves—fault. And guess what, their ring leader, James Potter, got Head Boy. I almost passed out when I heard that. How could Dumbledore appoint James with Head Boy? He breaks all the rules, and I've lost count on how many detentions he's gotten. Speaking of James Potter…

"Helllllooooo Ladies, looking fine today." A 6'2, hazel eyed boy with black hair that is always messy, greeted as he stepped into our compartment.

"Hey James, how was your summer?" Lina asked. I shot her a glare. She knows I can't stand him.

"Brilliant! Wasn't it Padfoot?" James asked his best friend and partner in crime, dark brown hair and black eyes, who is 6ft, Sirius Black.

"You got that right Prongs. Hi gorgeous women had an excellent summer I hope." He replied.

"Well, we took a trip to Italy. Again." Lina told him.

"Catalina, baby. Italy is the country of love." Sirius said sitting down beside her lifting her legs on his lap. She quickly pulled them off and sat up straight, blushing a bit. Everyone knows she's crazy about Sirius—except Sirius who has a crush on her.

"That's France you idiot. And where's Remus?" Eva asked. Her and Remus have been dating since fifth year and are still crazy about each other.

"He's coming, Eva. He was just helping Wormtail with his luggage." James said.

"So what's Italy famous for then? Besides gorgeous women." Sirius asked winking at Catalina.

"Probably pasta or tomato sauce also pizza." A light short brown haired, 6'1, light brown eyed Remus said walking up behind James. "Hey everyone good summer?" He asked and walked over and sat beside Eva pulling her up on his lap.

"So James congratulations on getting Head Boy." I said as he sat beside Sirius.

"Why thank you Lily. Wow the year hasn't even started yet and your already giving' me complements. I think this is going to be a very pleasant year."

"I could stop if you want." I said smirking and leaned back against the wall.

"No, that's not what I meant at all. Maybe this year you'll actually go out with me."

"In your dreams, Potter." I told him for like the one thousandth time.

"Good thing I'm a firm believer in dreams lilykins." He said with a smirk. I knew better then to inform him to stop calling me 'lilykins' so I just pretended I didn't hear him and turn towards the rest of the group.

"So do you know whose Quidditch Captain yet?" Catalina asked. Eva and Remus were having their own private conversation so they were oblivious to everyone else.

"Yeah, guess who." Sirius said.

"James?" Lina asked.

"Nope." James said. Shocker I would of thought that he would be Captain.

"Remus?" I asked.

Sirius shook his head.

"That idiot who plays keeper?" Catalina asked.

"Peter?"

"He doesn't even play Quidditch and its Brad Campring who plays keeper." Sirius said.

"Well just tell us were never going to guess it." I said.

"It's, drum roll please." Sirius said, and James pretended he was playing the drums. "The famous Sirius Black."

"It would be infamous." Said Eva.

"You're joking." I stated. How did he get Captain over James?

"No I'm serious. And I mean the other serious not my name."

"Thanks for clarifying." I replied rolling my eyes.

"That's awesome Sirius. I'm so happy for you." Lina exclaimed after she digested the news. And hugged him awkwardly, both of them blushing afterwards. James and I just rolled our eyes.

"Well at least someone's happy." Sirius said glaring at me.

"I'm happy. I'm just surprised." I told him.

"Why who did you think would get it?" James asked.

"Um no one." I said, knowing it would totally go to his head if I told him that I thought he would get it.

"Come on tell me."

"Fine, I thought you would get it." I admitted to James. Then surprised looks covered James, Sirius and Lina's faces. "What?"

"Nothing. Nothing at all." James said, smiling. I knew it would go to his head.

Just then Peter came in. "Sorry, I'm late I had to do something first." Squeaked a small brown haired boy that was the fourth of the Marauders.

"That's fine Peter. Have a seat." I greeted him and moved over a bit.

"Uh no thanks. I'm going to go and find the trolley." He said and scurried away.

We all exchanged glances. That was weird.

At Hogwarts

"Welcome everyone to a new year at Hogwarts. Just a few announcements before we begin eating." Headmaster Dumbledore greeted everyone. "The new Defence against the Dark Arts teacher is Professor Abler. Now our caretaker Mr. Filch has asked me to tell the first year students and to remind the older students that the Forbidden Forest is off limits to everyone and that his office is out of limits, and any damage to it will result in a serious consequence." He looked especially at James, and Sirius. Both of which laughed a bit at the last part. This is why Head Boy was not the right choice for James. He'll get away with everything because it's not as if he'll rat himself out. And I'm not a snitch so unless a teacher or Filch catches him and Sirius they can pull any prank they want.

Seconds after Dumbledore finished food filled the tables and we all began to dig in and talk on what the new year will be like. Also gossip on anything we heard over the summer or since we got to Hogwarts.

"So did you hear about all the people that just became Death Eaters over the summer?" Eva asked.

"Well there's bound to be lots. Everyone's practically seventeen. Who are they?" Lina asked.

"Well the ones I know for sure are Bellatrix Black, Lucius Malfoy, Avery, Crabbe, Goyle, and Rodolphus Lestrange." She told us quietly.

"How do you know?" Remus asked.

"Well, I am a pureblood, and we have lots of relatives that are probably distantly related to these people. Also I eavesdrop on my parents conversations." She told him.

"Regulus will probably join soon to. Once he's old enough." Sirius told us angrily eyeing his brother who sat at the Slytherin table.

"It must be hard to have a family that supports you-know-who." Lina said.

"Well, you get used to it. Besides I live with James now. So it's like I have a new family." Sirius told her smiling.

Soon the feast was over and James and I had to tell the Prefects the new password and go see Dumbledore.

"James."

"What."

"We have to tell the prefects the passwords and go see Dumbledore." I reminded him.

"Oh yeah. You tell Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff and I'll tell Gryffindor, and Slytherin." He said and walked off.

After telling the prefects the new passwords. James and I went to Dumbledore's office.

"How do we get in?" I asked standing in front of the Statue.

"What's your favourite candy?" James asked.

"Liquorice Wand." I told him and the statue began to move. "How did you…how did it know…"

"It's not my first time here, Lily. And the password is always some candy." He told me, climbing up the stairs.

"Headmaster Dumbledore" I called.

"Yes." He answered descending down a staircase behind his desk. "You two need to know the password to get into the Head Boy and Girl dorm."

"Yes sir. And is it true that we get our own common room?" James asked.

"Yes, but I advise you not to throw too many parties." Dumbledore told him. "Now the password is audacious it is another word for brave. And since you both are in Gryffindor I think it is an excellent choice for a password."

"Yes it is." I replied and James and I walked to our dorm.

"Password." The portrait asked.

"Audacious" James and I said at the same time.

The common room was magnificent. When you walked in it's on your left and the dorm rooms are on your right. The back wall in the common room has a fireplace in front of it is a coffee table with two couches on either side of it. The colours are the same as in the Gryffindor common room. James ran in and immediately flopped down on the couch.

"Alright with you if I take a quick nap?" He asked.

"You're already tired? We haven't done anything yet."

He looked at me smirking. "What do you want to do then?" He asked suggestively.

I rolled my eyes is that all he thinks about, honestly. "You know what I meant. We just got to school and you already need a nap."

"I got to keep my energy up. It very tiring being me you know."

"Oh really. How so?"

"Well, I need to look awesome at every moment. And be awake for Quidditch, or Sirius might kick me off the team. I also have to keep flirting with you and keep coming up with new comebacks when you start to get feisty."

"Here's a thing you can cross off your list. Stop flirting with me, their no that's one less thing you have to sleep for." I told him and started to walk to my dorm.

"You know you like it." He called.

"Do not." I turned around.

"Yes you do and one of these days you're going to crack. You will go out with me Lily Evans, just you wait."

I simply rolled my eyes and turned around to walk in my dorm. I lay down on my bed thinking of the things James said. Do I really like his flirting? No I don't. And he just wants to go out with me to prove that he can get every girl in the school, besides the ones Sirius gets. That why I would never go out with James. He'll only dump me after he gets tired of me, like all those other girls. And I will not be one of them.
