For Better or For Worse

Prologue

It was a glorious Sunday morning, the sun was out shining boldly, while the birds on a nearby tree were chirping a merry tune. It was the kind of day a normal person would spend in bed, rolling around, having a sleep in. So naturally, no one was outside to witness the strange sight, of an owl flying on broad daylight, and if anyone did happen to be outside, they wouldn't have been close enough to see the peculiar sight of a letter tied to the Snow White owl's leg.

Under a cluster of trees, in a overgrown garden sat a red haired girl. Her almond shaped eyes glazed over in thought as she stared off into space. Sitting on her lap, was a large, to big to carry book. Though they didn't know it, the occupants of 36 Spinners End's lives were about to change drastically. Though for the better or worse, is still theirs to determine.

"Lily! Don't tell me your reading that stupid old book again?" Came a snotty voice, from a tall lanky, swallow skinned girl.

"Go away if you don't have anything nice to say Tuny. Just because you don't like 'Romeo & Juliet,' doesn't mean someone else can't love it!" exclaimed Lily patronisingly.

Petunia let out an audible 'HUMPH' as she stomped her foot in agitation. "Yeah well, Mom wants you A.S.A.P!" She called over her shoulders. Lily let out a small sigh as she rose from her comfortable perch.

"You called mom?" asked Lily as she walked into the lounge. "Yes, we'll dear, the most oddest thing happened."

"Hmm?"

"A Snow White owl just flew in through the window, and landed on the table, then if that wasn't odd enough, it stuck out one of its legs. And guess what was tied up to its leg?" When she received no response from her younger daughter, she continued, "Tied onto is leg, was a envelope of all things!"

"What!? Exclaimed Lily, disappointed she had missed such an odd sight.

"And that's not all." Continued Mrs Evans. "It's addressed to a Ms Lily Evans, and it's even got where you live, or shall I say where your bedroom is." Lily gasped as she leaped over a chair, and snatched the said envelope, that was lying innocently on the table top. Sure enough it was addressed to-

Ms Lily Evans. Second room down36 Spinners End.

"WELL, OPEN IT!" Cried her mother exasperatedly. After a small moment of hesitation, she turned the envelope over. The envelope was thick and heavy, made of yellowish parchment and the address, was written in emerald-ink. There was no stamp. Turning the envelope over, her hands trembling, lily saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an egalitarian, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H.'** Lily slit the seal open cleanly, pulling out a similar yellowish parchment, that looked rather expensive. Unfolding it slowly, in emerald writing was written: HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY

Headmaster: Albus Dumbledore(Order of Merlin, First Class, Grand Sorc, Chf. Warlock, SupremeMugwump, Internatiola Confed. of Wizards)

Dear Ms Evans,

We are pleased to inform you that you have a place at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please find enclosed a a list of all the necessary books and equipment. Term begins on 1 September. We await your owl by no later than 31 July.

Yours sincerely,

Minerva McGonagall Deputy Headmistress.

"Oh sweet Merlin! EDWARD COME HERE QUICK, OUR DAUGHTERS A WITCH LOVE!" exclaimed a ecstatic Mrs Evans.

"We will be arriving at Hogsmead shortly, so please get changed into your cloaks," stated a Ravenclaw prefect as he stuck his head into the compartment in which a emerald eyed Lily sat.

After saying tearful goodbyes and getting into a heated argument with Petunia Evans, Lily had finally stepped aboard the scarlet express. She couldn't believe this was actually happening. The train came to a screechy stop, brought Lily back from her thoughts, and she took her first step onto Hogsmead station.

'Firs'-years! Firs-years, over here!' Called a rather gigantic looking man with a scraggly attire. 'Hop in ter the boats. No more'n four to a boat." He called into the night sky. "You'll get your firs' view of the castle shortly" Soon enough the first years came face to face with the magister sight of the ostentatious*** castle. 'Wow's and amazed gasps were echoed around the lake. Now Lily was in a boat with two mischievous boys, who decided that jumping to the front of the small boat, wold give them a better sight of the castle that would be their home for the next 7 years. Unfortunately, Lily, who was perched right at the back of the boat, sky rocketed into the air, landing with a ear splitting splash into the inviting lake and having to be fished out by the giant squid.


"Really Evans, you would look so much better with green hair! It would match your pickle green eyes perfectly." Called James Potter as the first years were led into their common room.

"Yeah! Nice one James," cried the other boy who was responsible for Lily's recent dip in the black lake. "Can't you afford a mirror? I suppose that would explain why you guys looked like a dog chewed you hair up, Potter, Black." spat Lily venomously.

"Oh sweetheart! We don't need one! We already know how GORRrgeous we are!" chortled Sirius Black, causing a few people to snicker, a deadly glare from Lily however shut them up pretty quick.

"Seriously Potter! Maybe I should set you on a date with a comb, maybe then you'll learn what it is and how to use it. It will do us all a favour. " she called as she walked into her designated dorm with 3 other girls.

The next morning, the castle was awoken by an ear splitting scream

"Ahhh!" Everyone in all the corners of the castle, students, staff and ghost alike, were rudely awoken from their peaceful slumber by the loud feminine scream.

"OH MOTHER OF MERLIN!' Lily shrieked in horror as she gazed into her reflection. Her beautiful red locks weren't red anymore. They were green. "There's only one person I know who would do this!" She yelled at her reflection as she stormed down the stairs.

Everyone else in the dorms had stumbled out asking their neighbours what was happening. Among them were two first years boys, trying yet failing miserably at putting on a straight face.

Everyone's head snapped up as a feminine voices screamed, "James Potter, Sirius Black!" As the young girl came into full view. The students tried to stifle their laughter as they were met with a furious poking previously red head.

"GETITORFFF GET IT OFF NOW OR I SWEAR TO MERLIN!"

"Well aren't you a li'le young to swear there dear Evans?" quipped James Potter in a deadly serious tone, however his eyes gave away his amusement.

"I'LL GET YOU AND I'LL GET YOU GOOD, YOU HEAR THAT POTTER!" Lily yelled "This is war!" she hissed, her almond shaped eyes narrowing dangerously. She whirled around and stormed up the stairs, the sound of laughter following in behind her. "We'll look on the bright side, at least I'm in Gryffindor." She muttered to no one in particular.
