What Could Have Been

Chapter 1

Chapter One: Plans.

It was just before exams in their 7th year. Everyone was madly studying. One group of students were sitting in the sun on the hill above the lake under a huge elder tree. Textbooks were strewn everywhere with quills and rolls of parchment in between. In a break between studying, the group began talking about life after school. It was fast approaching. Before they knew it they were going to be graduates and looking for employment.

"What's everyone's plans for after school?" A tall, black-haired, bespectacled boy asked. The boy across from him answered first."Some kind of Ministry job. Maybe as an Auror." The boy had short brown hair and a round face. "Also married to the girl of my dreams and starting a family." He looked lovingly at the girl sitting next to him. She had dark spiky hair and mischievous eyes."Who says I want a family? Or you Frankie?" she giggled. Frankie rolled his eyes.

"What about you Arthur?" the dark-haired boy asked. A red-headed boy looked thoughtful for a moment."I'm not sure. Maybe something in the Muggle world. All I know is I hope Molly will be with me." Arthur said with a grin.

"And a couple of children." Molly added with a smile.

"Your turn Moony." the dark haired boy said. Moony smiled.

"I want to be a teacher. Charms maybe, or Defence Against the Dark Arts." The boy to Moony's left snorted."You haven't had enough of school after seven years? I know I have. Don't have any clue what I'm going to do but all I know is me, Prongs and Moony are going to be best friends forever."

"That's no way to live Sirius," the red-head sitting next to him said. "You should have some idea of what you want to do." Sirius shrugged.

"Kinda want to open an auto mechanic shop. But I'm no good at organising that kind of thing."

"Maybe you and I could do it together Padfoot." the black haired boy said excitedly. "It would be awesome. We could work together everyday."

"See?" said Sirius. "I knew Prongs would come with something."Everyone laughed.

"What about you Lily?" Molly asked.

"Well," Lily said tentatively. "I've always wanted to open my own cafe. In London. For muggles and wizards alike. With a special menu and spells so that the muggles don't notice anything they shouldn't see."

"If you need a chef I could help you." said the spiky haired girl."Oh Alice that would be brilliant." Lily said, her green eyes shining."I could help as a waitress, if you want." Molly said timidly. Lily nodded enthusiastically.

"Definitely. My two best friends helping me run the cafe of my dreams."

They heard a bell ring and scrambled to collect their things and get to class. Prongs smiled to himself, glad that all of his friends had good plans for after school. He vowed to himself he was going to do whatever he could to bring Lily's dream to life.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

emmaneal74: I loved this booked. Would definitely buy it when published and read it again. The story flowed in such a way I just couldn't put it down. I was never confused about the characters or their roles in the story which can happen sometimes with so many lead. I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to r...

Katy Rayne: i really enjoyed this book. i have to say i didn't know what to expect, but with every chapter that came something crucial to keep you reading happened. I was disappointed with the ending if this is for another book i will defiantly carry on reading the next book.

Atractivo Sumit: The story is an amazing blend of what we call natural, plain romance along with subtle emotions and interesting twists. The plot is so beautifully interwoven.

JONANNA: As an avid reader it is not often I say that about a book. The plot is what was different and the twists where unexpected. This book is defiantly a page turner and enjoyable read. I can't wait to reread this novel after a little editing to finish off the shine on this wonderful novel.

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger. It was really good plot, really liked how you stuck to the topic and you had a new title for every chapter making me guess what's going to happen. Ma...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

diabolka: This book is a fascinating twist on mythology, fantasy and romance genre. The author has done a fantastic job combining Greek mythology with a modern day twist, tying in a plot that offers twists and turns that are both expected and unexpected.
