Little Moments

Summary: Lily Evans was never paid heed to be the Marauders. Why should this year be any different? But there is one difference in this year; the six years are assigned to be a job shadow for two months. Lily Evans is assigned to be a Medi-witch. James falls off his broom and has to spend a few weeks in the hospital wing. Rated R for language and sex. R/R!!!

A/n: My first Lily/James story. I hope it turns out the way I want it to. I have so many ideas for it that I didn’t know which one to do. Finally I decided to explain out how Lily and James got together, of course, and why Peter Pettigrew suddenly held a grudge against the two. Just what did drive him to do what he did? I hope to explain that in this story! So sit back and Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I own nothing…….

Chapter Nine: Mates, Dates, and Moaning Myrtle

“And you will clean every bathroom, on every floor, once a month for six months. You two will learn that vandalizing the school’s property is not tolerated at Hogwarts.” With the last of yet another speech said, Professor McGonagall walked out the girl’s prefect bathroom.

She left me alone with James Potter. The boy who had not even looked at me since I had embarrassed him front of all the six years. I glanced at the buckets of water. I pulled a rag from the bottom of one and began to scrub the floor.

”Evans. What. Are. You. Doing?” I turned to look at James who was talking and staring at me like I was an idiot.

”What does it look like I’m doing? I’m cleaning the bathroom!” I roared continuing my work.

“Accio.” The rag flew from my hands and into James’s. That’s when realization hit me. Mrs. McGonagall didn’t say we couldn’t use magic!! Ugh, what was I thinking!

”Good God, woman! You’re a witch! Use magic!!” James smirked dropping the rag back into the bucket. I swear I’m not this dense all the time. It’s just something about being around James.....or anybody for that matter.

”I know” James’s smirk moved into a grin. I glared at him, “Aren’t you supposed to be mad at me?” Why isn’t he yelling or ignoring me? Why doesn’t he do something to get back at me?

”You think I’m mad about that trick?” Duh.


James gave me the ‘what?-are-you-stupid-or-something?’ look. “If anything, that trick did not make me mad, it made me respect you. I never thought you’d do something like that. I’m very impressed.”

The corners of my mouth twitched upwards. Aw, he respects me...not that I care. “Yeah...but Peter said you couldn’t handle the laughs and left.”

James frowned, “Ugh, I told that idiot I was leaving because I didn’t have my project done! Besides....not that many people were laughing, Evans.”

”All of the boys, and your ex-girlfriends.”

James smirked, “I have no ex-girlfriends. Just a bunch of girlfriends.”

I raised an eye at him. He’s such a brat. He has such a big head. And he’s so full of himself. And so snotty. And he’s really cute.......I mean.....He’s cute to girls like Mary....not to me.

“What?” He asked with a smug smile, “I can’t help it if girls are all over me.”

I rolled my eyes. What a pig. “You’re pathetic.” He shrugged and started mumbling spells to clean the bathroom.

It took us about an hour and half to clean every bathroom except one in Hogwarts. The last one left was none other than Moaning Myrtle’s own private bathroom. When I say private, I mean she scares anyone who comes near it.

”Here we go.” I mumbled opening the door and walking in with James on my tail. He looked around at the neat never been used bathroom.

”Remind me why we are cleaning a bathroom that has never been used?” James asked dropping the buckets of unused water next to me.

“Because it is part of this school, and we were assigned to clean every bathroom in Hogwarts.”

”Does Filch have a private bathroom?” James smirked.

I blinked, “Except that one.” Those are two thoughts that should NEVER ever be put together. Filch....and a Shower. Filch in the shower....EW. Really, I doubt he would even know how to use one.

I turned around and was immediately face to face with Moaning Myrtle. She had her normal pig tails and an icy glare.

”Why are you in my bathroom?” She asked in her baby sounding voice.

”Um...Hi Myrtle.” I said trying to be as friendly as possible. I heard she was very easily disturbed. The slightest thing would send her flying into her stall, splashing water everywhere. And there was no need for her to make a mess for us to clean.

“Who are you?” She glared at James.

”I’m James Potter.”

”A boy....This is a girl’s bathroom. You aren’t supposed to be here.”

”Myrtle, we’ve been assigned to clean it.” I said gently pulling out my wand.

James rolled his eyes, “Come on, Lily. Let’s just hurry up so we can get away from this Geek-faced ghost.” My eyes widened. How could he say something like that? Ghost have feelings too.

Myrtle’s face held a mixture of sadness and hatred, “You’re just like all the other boys. Always teasing and making fun of me. You always pick on the quiet girl with pig tails and glasses!” She squealed loudly, and flew as fast as just could into her stall. When she hit, water flew everywhere.

I sighed, “How could you say such mean things? She didn’t do anything to you.”

He shrugged and began to clean up the mess made by Moaning Myrtle. I started to help while letting my mind wander.

Tonight was my date with Peter. I cringed at the thought. I was almost regretting saying yes. If I really liked him....shouldn’t I be excited to go? After a long period of silences, James’s voice startled me, “How old are you, Evans?”

”Huh?” I asked even though I had heard him the first time. I had a bad habit of doing that.

”I asked your age, Evans. You do know it?”

”Of course I know it, and I’ll be 17 the 26th.”

He was grinning, “I’m older than you.”

I frowned, “Really? When is your birthday?”

”October 14th.”

”You’re barely older than me.”

”Still counts.”

I rolled my eyes, “Fine. James you’re older. Why didn’t you tell anyone it was your birthday?”

James shrugged, “No big deal. I plan on having a bunch of them.”

“You won’t if you keep insulting Myrtle. I’ve heard about girls who just go crazy from people picking on them. Finally they can’t take it, and kill the last person who insulted them.” I had heard of a bunch of people doing that. Especially in the States. They bring guns to school and just start shooting people. Makes me shiver at the thought.

“And where did you hear that? One of those books you are always reading? Or did you day dream it and got it confused with reality?” I glared at the boy. I hate being made fun of for daydreaming. I can’t help if I have a big imagination.....right? I removed the last of the water ignoring James’s last few statements.

“We can go now.” I mumbled.

“What’s the rush?” He moved closer to me. This was coming from the boy who had just insulted Myrtle so we could hurry up and finish.

”I-I have to get ready.” I backed away as he advanced forward.

He grinned, “What? Do you have a hot date or something?” Well...I wouldn’t exactly call it hot....

”As a matter of a fact. I do have a date.” James’s eyes widened and he immediately stopped walking.

”Who with?”

”Didn’t Peter tell you?” Don’t best friends share every piece of information? I think they do...

James snorted, “Wormtail? You’re going on a date with him?!”

”If you mean Peter, then yes...We are going to have dinner in the Astronomy Tower.” He didn’t have to say it like I was going out with a Slytherin or something.

James’s eye widened, “The Astronomy Tower? Lily Evans is going to the Astronomy Tower. I would have never thought it.”

I frowned in confusion, “What? Thought what?” We were just going to have supper and look at some stars. Maybe I could finish my homework.

”Lily, Lily, Lily.” James put his hand on the wall behind me. I hadn’t even realized we had been walking again until my back hit the cold wall. He was awfully close. I swallowed hard, “W-What?”

”Don’t you know what the Astronomy Tower is used for?” I could feel his breath on my face making me lean into the wall as much as possible.

“I’m beginning to guess it isn’t homework....”

James grinned, “The Astronomy Tower is where couples go to...” He stopped and I could see a trace of a blush on his cheeks. He must have realized how close we were for he backed up a bit. My heart slowed down.

I looked to James waiting for him to finish his sentence. “Merlin, Lily! The Astronomy Tower is where couples go when they want engage in a hot snogging session.” My cheeks must have turned at least ten shades of red. I could see my reflection in the bathroom mirror.

”I-I’m sure that’s not what Peter mind.” God, I hope not. When I agreed on a date, I didn’t think kissing would be involved. To be honest, getting kissed by a boy hasn’t been on my to-do-list in forever. Or...never...really....considering I’ve never been kiss.

“Sure, Evans. Just don’t come crying to me when you have a mouth full of Wormtail’s tail.” He stormed from the room. I frowned. He seemed kind of mad. Was it something I said?


“I’m really glad you came tonight, Lily.” I smiled nervously at Peter as he tried to touch my elbow. I walked ahead of him so his hand missed.

”Let’s go. I’m starving.” We were walking up to the Astronomy Tower. Peter held a basket of food he had some how gotten from the house-elves. I reached the door and noticed a sign on it.

Warning: Do not enter.

”I guess we can’t go in...” I mumbled trying to sound disappointed. Now I could finish my charms homework. I really haven’t been giving my all to that class.

I watched as Peter walked past me and took off the sign. “I put it up earlier so no one else would be in here.” Peter answered my silent question. I nodded slowly and walked through the door he had opened for me.

Peter immediately began setting up our supper. “Pumpkin Juice?” He asked handing me a purple glass full of juice.

”Thanks.” I mumbled tasting the chilled juice. I had always loved Pumpkin Juice. Even before I found out I was a witch, I loved Pumpkin pie, juice, anything. I like to think it was a sign. Eh...Maybe it wasn’t.

I sat down next to Peter. He stopped what he was doing and looked at me. I really wish he wouldn’t do that. It’s such a weird feeling. Nothing like when James looks at me. Not that I get a feeling when James looks at me, but if I did, I’m sure it would be different.

“I really like you Lily Evans.” He said in a low whisper. I winced on the inside, not wanting to be rude.

“I...uh...I like you to Peter.” I frowned feeling like a liar. Even If I didn’t have a crush on the boy...He was still nice. “Let’s eat now.” For some reason, I was suddenly wishing this night would end.

A/n: Hm...I really think this author’s note should have been in the last chapter, but I didn’t want to give the story away. Please don’t hate or think Lily is gross for going on a Date with Peter. He was the first guy to show real interest in her! Of course, she said yes. Just Please, Go with me on this. I promise you this will all work out in the end. And as for the characters being out of character....yeah they kind of are, but I think I said that in an earlier note...this is more original than anything else. Thanks for the reviews guys! ^_^ Keep reading.

And A special thanks to those who HAVEN’T given up on this story
