This song is 'On the Wings of Love' by Jeffrey Osborne. It's a very cute one-shot and I'd really appreciate it if you gave it a shot. Plus, btw this is my SECOND James/Lily one-shot on the archive. Hope you enjoy and leave a review! *winks*


On the Wings of Love


I.
I love the way you smile

Just smile for me and let the day begin
You are the sunshine that lights my heat within


"Sirius!" I whispered anxiously, "is she staring at me?"

Sirius looked over across the table and shook his head. "Mate, I seriously is beginning to think that you should just give up on. Prongs, this girl is not worth going crazy over. C'mon! Go out with Eliza Frather! She's a beauty! You should definatly consider her."

I sighed at this, Sirius always said this. Though, he often used a different name. "No," I finally stated, "I will not give up on MY flower."

My flower, well who I called mine, was Lily Evans. She had beautiful emerald green eyes, and long red hair that made her look very, very beautiful. I was head over heels in love with her, perhaps not love, but I did like her...a lot, and I was very determined to get her to be mine, the only problem was that she didn't even want anything to do with me. I think she thinks that I come off to confident when I ask her to be my date...I don't understand why though.

Sirius shrugs, "suit yourself Prongs. You don't mind if I go for Eliza do you? Susan isn't working out for me."

I nod, "go for it."

I'm not taking my eyes off of Lily though, I watch her laugh at something that Alice said and see her smile. I adore her smile, and I only wish that she would just smile at me. That would give me something to be happy about for the rest of the day. I wish that she would just glance over at me, and give me a smile like she does with the rest. Of course, I know that that will never happen. I know that that smile that she gives to everyone well never be set over by me.

II. She's like an angel fallen from grace

I'm sure that you're an angel in disguise
Come take my hand and together we will rise


Lily is like a angel. She walks around the corridors gracefully and doesn't care who she passes. She doesn't even care if it is a Slytherin that she passes. She just enjoys being herself, she just enjoys being alive and I'm certain that she is a angel from above. I am certain that she is my angel in disguise. My gaurdian angel.

I follow her, hoping that she doesn't realize that I'm following her...or stalking her, whatever you would like to call it. When she stops at the lake for a long while, I take my time to finally approach her. I don't want to ruin her day. I just want to talk to her. I take a deep breath before speaking.

"Hello," I say reluctantly. Lily jumps at the sound of my voice and turns around quickly. At first, she looks relief to see me, but then that relief turns to annoyance.

"Potter," she spats, "what do you want?"

"Nothing," I say a little TO quickly, "I'm just enjoying the beautiful...snow. Yes! That's it I'm out here to enjoy the snow!"

Lily snorts, "as if Potter. Tell me what you're really here to do."

"Alright you caught me," I say defensively, I pick up some snow and slowly make it into a snowball and throws it at her. She doesn't have time to react since the snow has already hit her face and she furiously wipes the snow off her face.

"What do you think you are doing?!" She shrieks, she picks up some snow and throws it at me and I chuckle and dodge it.

"This means war Lil's."

"DON'T call me Lil's, and for calling me that, you're right, this DOES mean war."

III. She throws like a champion

On the wings of love
Up and above the clouds
The only way to fly
Is on the wings of love
On the wings of love
Only the two of us
Together flying high
Flying high
Upon the wings of love


When she said war, I never really thought that it would end up being a war. She has a good arm, I discover. She can throw really, really, hard and this surprises me. Though, I'm pretty good too, but Lily is more determined then I am. She throws like a champion.

She twirls and spins as she throws, and it makes me want to laugh out loud. I throw my hands up in defeat.

"You win," I state, "how about we go inside and get some hot chocolate?"

"What makes you think I will go inside with you?" Lily asks stubburnly.

"Because you're shivering from the cold," I pointed out. Which is true, she is shaking as though she is freezing. "C'mon Lily, I promise that I won't ask you out, or try anything. PLEASE!!!"

Lily giggles, woah did she just giggle? That was certainly a surprise! "P- James, of course I will come inside. Just please do not even TRY to ask me out or I will personally slam you against the wall and punch you in the face. Oh, and I will reconsider calling you by your first name as well."

Wait, does this means that she's going to befriend me? Inside I'm jumping with joy, on the outside I'm shocked.

"You mean...you're giving me a chance?" I asked.

"Yes," she saids with a sigh, "I'm taking Remus's advice."

Remus! I had forgotten that I had, er begged him to ask Lily to give me a chance. And Merlin she was actually considering to be my friend! This was a first.

"Thanks Lily."

IV.
Sweetness, shows the beauty of a beautiful lady

You look at me and I begin to melt
Just like the snow when a ray of sun is felt
I'm crazy bout ya baby can't you see
I'd be delighted if you could come with me


We walk torwards the kitchens and I could tell that Lily was beginning to feel warm once again since she was no longer shivering.

"So what are you going to have Lily?" I ask curiously.

"I think some Hot Chocolate. Sweetness is something that I can't turn down." We both laugh as we finally reach the Kitchens where we are confronted by two house elfs immediatly.

"James Potter! And Lily Evans too! What would you two like? Anything you ask for Seru can get for you!" said Seru quickly.

"Oh Seru, I will have some Hot Chocolate. What about you James?" asked Lily, staring at me with a smile.

"I'll have the same," I say.

"Seru will be here with Lily's and James hot chocolate as soon as Seru can be here!" exclaims Seru before walking off quickly to the other side of the castle. We were in silence for a very long time before I finally break it.

"So, Lily...I have a question." She looks up at me sharply and I laugh. "Not THAT queston but I was wondering, why is it that you seem to float whenever you walk?"

"I float?" Lily asks confused.

"Well, you walk gracefully," I pointed out.

Lily shrugs, "I don't really know. I've never really thought that I floated before. Perhaps it's because I'm always having a good day or something like that. But I have a question for you James, why is it that whenever you ask me out, you always seem to feel so confident that I am going to say yes?"

This was a very unexpected question.

"I suppose you could say that I'm more hopeful then confident," I admit, "it's just. Lily's you're so beautiful. You're like a rose that I'm never going to be able to touch and it pains me to realize that perhaps I may never even have a chance with you. I guess that you befriending me was as close as I can get to a chance with you...but a guy can dream can't he?"

"Yes he can," says Lily softly.

V And now I'm sure that you have wings hidden and that you really are my angel in disguise

On the wings of love
Up and above the clouds
The only way to fly
Is on the wings of love
On the wings of love
Only the two of us
Together flying high
Together flying high


And now, five years later I sit here with my wife, Lily Evans-Potter. She beams at me with a huge smile on her face and I shake that memory away from my mind.

"James, what are you thinking about?" Lily asks me softly and curiously.

"Oh nothing."

"James! I can tell when you're thinking! Don't think that I don't!" exclaims Lily crossing her arms across her chest.

I laugh, "fine. I'm just thinking about the day that you befriended me. I remember it as though it was yesterday, it feels like yesterday but I know that it's been many, many years since that happened Lily. Well, five years to be exact! But I still is extremely happy that you actually gave me a chance. I've been blessed ever since then."

"And I'm glad."

We are just about to kiss when Sirius, Remus and Peter apparates in and Lily and I groan.

"Oops, did we just but into something?" Sirius asks innocently.

I snorted, "yeh thank?"

"Hmm," replied Sirius.

"Sorry Prongs," appologized Remus. Peter, Remus and Sirius all sits on the chair and grins over at Lily.

"And how's the little wife doing?" asks Sirius.

"Just fine," replies Lily rolling her eyes.

"Prongs, I still can't believe that you were able to pull off getting Lily five years ago," admits Peter.

I laugh, "you know what Peter? Niether can I."

The End


Just a cute little dribble that I came up with one night. I hope you like it. I absolutely love this song and it's sang wonderfully. It's a love song classic! So what do you think? Do you think it was worth wasting a hour of MY time to write? If so, leave a comment to let me know how I did. I would really appreciate it. Thank you so, so much! Must be off, it's pretty late.

Have a good day everyone! =) Don't be shy, c'mon in and review!
-Lily Evans
