The next week past with not much excitement. The group of girls mostly avoided the boys, who made no move to try to come near them. Sirius would creep up to Lily after class, and then before she even noticed he was there, he ran back off to the others. Her friends were always around her like flies on honey. Time seemed to tick by slowly and the students of Hogwarts were lazing around the school as though it was the peak of summer. Lily was having trouble sleeping, tossing and turning at night, often waking screaming from nightmares she refused to talk about; the Gryffindor girls were a mess.

The past few mornings, Lily had been waking up and rushing to the bathroom. She clamed that she maybe just had the flu, but was nervous and jumpy; as was, she refused to go to the Nurses wing. After one week of this morning procedure, her friends got fed up.

“Lily, will you please go see Madam Promfy?” Angle begged.


“Why not?” Sarah asked.

“Are you scared of doctors?”  Isabella suggested.

“No! That’s not it!” Lily croaked.

“Then what is it?” Katie mumbled.

Lily looked away. “It’s probably nothing. Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I have to go to the bathroom.” The girls nodded.

Lily ran out of the common room, with nothing more than a tank-top and a pair of booty shorts on. Her feet banged against the cold hard marble of the corridor but she didn’t seem to notice. She turned the corner sharply and ran into something hard; she fell to the ground with a soft thump.

“Oh my God Lily, are you ok?” A rough male’s voice rang through her ears. “I’m so sorry, I didn’t see you there!”

A hand came down in front of her face. She knew she was supposed to take it, but she couldn’t bring herself to move. The world spun around her and she willed herself not to be sick. The boy moved down next to her and took her head in her face, tipping it upwards. “Lily?” This was too much. All the sounds and colours whirled and bended in her eyes, her throat burned and her ears rang. She leaned over to the side and was sick on the floor.



Lily woke several hours later to a room she didn’t recognize right away. She was tucked in tight with soft blankets; white sheets shielded her view from the outside world. She heard a woman’s rushed voice and then, a moment later, a loud sigh from behind the curtains on her right side. She was stiff from lying still for so long and struggled against the blankets iron grip. Suddenly, the blankets gave and she was sent rolling to the floor.


“Lily!” The curtains flew apart with a loud clanging noise and a young boy dropped to her side. “Lily, are you OK?”

“Oh?” She looked up to see you had spoken. “Sirius! Umm yeah I’m fine.” She flushed pink with embarrassment.

“What in the world is going on?” Madam Promfy came around the corner and saw the two sitting on the floor; her bottom lip stuck out in disapproval. Lily’s blush darkened.

“She fell out of bed.” Sirius explained.

“Did she just wake up?”

“I believe so.”

Madame Promfy took the few steps over to them and Sirius got up and moved out of the way. She picked Lily up like she was a feather pillow and laid her back in the bed.

“I’m sorry.” Lily mumbled. 

“Don’t worry about it daring.” She turned to Sirius. “Do you mind stepping outside for a few minutes?”

He looked anxiously at Lily then nodded.  “Of course.” A moment later, Lily heard the door open then shut a few seconds after. She knew he was just outside the door.

“Um dear there’s something you should know.” Madam Promfy started. Lily snapped her head towards her, unaware that she had been staring after him.

“Yes?” She questioned. 

She opened her mouth then paused. Her face tensed as she thought about what she was about to say. She opened and shut her mouth a couple more times; her eyes curiously worried. Lily had never seen her so stressed. She took Lily’s hand in hers and took a death breath. She opened her mouth once more, this time to speak.

“Well…er, you’re pregnant.”
