Fabulous banner made by ChizzaLazty! Thanks!

James didn't look too jokey at the moment. He said gently, "Why dont you like me Lily?" This was the first time he hadn't called me 'sweet' or 'angel'. I thought about it and said truthfully, "Its weird, you know? No one has ever really liked me this much before. Its surprising, I guess. I'm a little afraid really." I shocked myself and James by this confession. Over 8,000 reads! OMG I love you all!

Chapter 6: A day at the lake

A/N: Hey, I’ve updated finally! Yay! Hopefully this chapter is a connection to the story unlike Chapter 5. Last chapter was random, I know, but all well. Review please, or I can’t improve. Cheers!

Disclaimer: Yeah, I don’t own anything ya da ya da ya da.

After the party, I was so buggered that I slept all day.
I woke with a start and glanced at the clock. 3.00pm. Great.
“Jas? Are you in here?”
I heard a low grunting from the bed across from mine.

I heard someone open the door slowly, which was annoying as all hell ‘cause it creaks loudly.
‘Ugh. Go away!’ I thought sleepily. ‘It’s probably Sally or someone.’ I heard whispers and laughter. Then, it sounded like two people started walking toward my bed. ‘Who is that?’ I wondered dimly. Meh.

Suddenly, a shrill, high-pitched noise echoed through my head. I shrieked and jerked at the loud noise and flipped off the bed, banging my head painfully on the ground. Then I heard a, ‘Oh shit,’ and scampering out of the room. I picked myself up. “JAMES!” I screamed as I skidded out of the room after the boys.

I dashed down to the common room and saw James and Sirius hiding behind the couch, pale as the Fat Friar. I flicked the sofa away with the end of my wand, glad that I had grabbed it before I sprinted after the guys. They didn’t move. Well, Sirius did. He grabbed the shiny whistle and ran off.

I stared at James thinking, ‘I love this guy? Puh-lease.’ He stared right back, half fighting a grin off his face. “Do I have something on my face?” he said after the silence. I stared at him a little longer before I began to walk away. “Obviously not then,” I heard him mutter.

James got up, “Lily, wait up. I’m sorry okay?” I didn’t even turn around. He grabbed my arm, stopping me in my tracks. “Nick off James,” I snarled, trying to rip my arm away. He held on though and spun me around to face him squarely. “Lily, I’m sorry. It was a dumb joke that wasn’t funny.”

He gave me the Puppy Eyes. How could I of resisted? He gave me a hug and added, "Let’s go for a walk.” And led me out of the Portrait Hole. I noticed that everyone was staring us. ‘It’s probably ‘cause we never hang out,” I thought, still slightly annoyed at James. It wasn’t too bad. That is, until I realized I was still in my Pooh Bear pajamas. Were they out to get me or something?

“Did you even notice that I was in pajamas?” I cried after I had changed into my army pants and red and white polka-dot shirt. “No,” James said simply. Who can argue with that?

We continued our walk, but just before we exited through the doors, Lucius Malfoy and Snape stopped in front of us.

“A Mudblood and a pure blood. How sweet,” Malfoy sneered in that annoying voice of his. Snape sniggered. Well, personally I wouldn’t call it sniggering. More like snorting like a monkey really.

“Bugger off Lucius, who rattled your cage?” someone shouted indignantly from behind. It was Jas and Remus! I guess they wanted a walk too. “Oh Jasmine Louise, why can’t you be normal like the rest of us Malfoys and realize that they’re filth?” Malfoy drawled. Jasmine Louise was Jas’s full name. And by God, she hated it. Also, she was related to the Malfoys. Like second cousins or something. I dunno.
Jas let out a snort of disgust and retorted, "Sorry Lucius Charles, I can’t shove my head that far up my arse.”

Someone else let out a bark of laughter. Now it was Sirius and Sally!

We unite!

The four of them stepped down and stood beside James and I.

“So, Lucius Charles? If I were you I would nick off right now,” Sirius added. “Yeah, and wipe that look off your face, you fag,” James chimed in. That ‘look’ that James had commented on was one of fury. Pure fury.

“They’re dirt! We will always walk on filthy Mudbloods!” Malfoy spat onto the ground and began to stalk away.“Come back here!” We all shouted at once and pulled out our wands.

Malfoy turned around to face us and jumped back. We were so close that our wands were basically up his nose! “Oh, you’ve got you itsy bitsy sticks pointed at me!” he mocked with his hands up.

He attempted to walk off again but we all shouted different curses and hexes at him and Snape.

There was a giant purple explosion and we waved the smoke away, coughing.

Surprisingly, they had turned into slimy tortoises! We all laughed as we watched Malfoy turn his long, scaly neck towards us. What was funny was that it took so long! The six of us walked off, still chortling heartily.

We reached the lake and sat down on the warm banks, with the sun splashing us with its rays.

‘I feel like a swim,’ I thought spontaneously. I swear that it must have shown on my face or something ‘cause then James cried, “Lets go splash around in the water Lily!” And with that, he ripped off his socks and shoes, and then mine. Then he promptly picked me up and slung me over his shoulder like a rag doll.

I screamed and hit his back with the palms of my hands but it was no good.
Sirius quickly followed suit and Sally shrieked with joy. Sirius smacked her bum and winked at James.

Jasmine and Remus sat there awkwardly until Jas sighed and grabbed his hand. “Don’t be so boring Remmy!” she said, “Its not like we’ll get in trouble!” Remmy? Where had that come from? They spend too much time together.

James began to wade into the water, with me still over his shoulder. He dropped to his knees so my hands and feet dangled in the water and he cried, “Oh thy God, is thy Lily worthy of going into Thee Holy Water? May her skin be refreshed with the water of the spirits.” Then he lowered me into the water. I laughed, but quickly stopped when the water began surging through my mouth. I have no idea what could have been in there.

I waved my arms in the air and he grabbed them, pulling me up onto my knees beside him.
“Peace?” he said innocently. I scratched my chin before shouting, “Never!” and tackling him into the water. He held onto my though, and I fell onto his chest.
“Well hello there,” he grinned. His grin turned into a soft smile and I returned it. I looked down at his lips…

“BOO!” shouted Sirius, spraying us with water. I screamed so loudly that James had to clap his hands over his ears. “Shit Padfoot! Do you mind?” he cried angrily to Sirius who just laughed and linked his arm around Sally’s waist.
‘That’s another moment gone with no kiss,’ I thought miserably. I sighed and looked over at Jas, who was snogging Remus or ‘Remmy’ as she calls him. She just can’t keep her hands off him. Honestly.

Someone slid their hands over my eyes. I hate this game.
“Hi James.”

James pulled his hands away and when I turned to look at him, he dodged away and this game continued, spinning around and around in circles. I heard him laugh and it made me giggle is well. Then he grabbed my shoulders and I finally got to look around at him. His eyes were twinkling at me in their gorgeous way. I smiled. Then I flung my arms around him and we fell into the water.

Under the water, I opened my eyes and saw him giving me the thumbs up. Then he raised his wand and gave himself the Bubble Head Charm. I did the same. We swam off into the deeper area, where James mouthed, “I love you.”
He entwined his hands in mine and we floated there, staring at each other. It was quite romantic.

Well, until Sirius and Sally swam past, goggling at us, with their eyes open really wide, like dinnerplates. It was so hilarious, that I let out a giggle. Their Bubble Head Charms looked like giant fish bowls.

After we had dried ourselves off, it was about 8.00pm. The stars shone brightly above us. At the doors, Sirius, Sally, Remus and Jasmine walked inside, ready to have dinner. I began to follow, but when I looked around, I saw James standing still, staring moodily and thoughtfully at the grass. “James? You coming?” I asked curiously.

“Come on, let’s go for a walk. By ourselves this time. I... I need to talk to you.” He said. I could smell the delicious scents of dinner, but I turned away from the tasty food and jogged after James, calling, “Where are we going?” Instead of answering, he began to run, sprinting across the grassy field.
I dashed after him.

“James! Please tell me where we’re going, it’s dinner and I’m hungry!”
He just waved his hand to follow me and we kept running. James slowed to a jog so I could catch up to him and once I had, I hung off his arm, panting heavily. Then I looked around.

“James, where are we?”

A/N: Dun dun dun. Where are they?
I hope you liked it and please review! Also, I was thinking of writing POV's. For a new type of style, you know. Tell me what you think if it changed to POV. Thanks!
