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!

Chapter Fifteen: The Road Not Taken.

I looked up at the entrance to the Slytherins Common room. Grinning, I remembered how it looked covered in shaving cream that was tented to the Gryffindors Colours. For a brief moment James entered my mind. A VERY brief moment.

It was 8:30 pm, and I had no clue what I was doing there. I just hated being told I can’t do something. I need to learn to control that, or I’m going to give truth to that saying about firey red heads.

I really don’t even want to be here. I know! I’ll just tell Sirius I went. He doesn’t have to know that I didn’t. I nodded to myself. Yeah, that’s a great idea. I turned to leave and rammed right into someone’s broad chest.

”Evans!” It was Duncan, “Decided to show did you?” I gave him a weak smile not wanting him to get the best of me. I glanced behind me to see about four other guys that I didn’t know.

”Great Come on in. The party is just about to start.” He mumbled the password and the door flew open.

”Actually, I was just......”

He cut me off, “Leaving? So soon.” The group of boys formed a line across the hallways making it impossible to get by. Ah, I guess that’s a hint they want me to stay.

”I.....um I guess I ....can uh stay.” I stuttered. He had a creepy look on his face that made chills run down my spine.

“Great! Let’s go in.” He lightly shoved me forward and I took the hint to walk in. This wasn’t the first time I had been in the Slytherins’s common room. I was sent to get Professor Tuttle for Madame Portly many of times, and I had to wait on him in here. I walked in to find the whole room empty except one person sitting in a chair facing the opposite direction.

Duncan motioned for me to walk forward and sit on the couch. I did just that, noticing it was Lucius Malfoy in the chair. My eyes widened, but I tried to hide my surprise. I don’t believe it went over very while.

”Miss. Evans, so nice of you to join us tonight.” Lucius Malfoy spoke to me for the first time ever. He was rather formal.

Instead of responding I examined him. He was considered to be one of the hottest guys in Hogwarts, but I think Sirius and James had him beat by a long shot. Hell, Duncan was a lot better looking than Lucius, but I guess that’s just my opinion. His white blonde hair just didn’t cut it for me.

”Aren’t you going to say anything?” Lucius asked bring me out of my trance.

I bit my bottom lip, “I...uh...I don’t think this party is such a great idea...I was under the impression parties were banned from Hogwarts.”

Lucius took a drink of whatever was in his silver and green cup, “They are, and if you’re so against this party then why did you come?”

I glared at the boy, who I believe was one year older than me, but I wasn’t for sure, “I’m not really sure, Mr. Malfoy, but I’ll just be leaving now.” I stood up but two of the boys blocked the entrance. I looked around for another exit, but I knew there wasn’t going to be one.

I bit my bottom lip harder as I realized the trouble I had gotten myself into. There was no way out. I had no clue what they had in mind, or how long they were going to make me stay here. Let’s just pray it wasn’t over an hour. Hell, let’s pray it isn’t over five seconds!

“Miss Evans, do you know why you have been brought here?” Lucius Malfoy asked inspecting his finger nails.

”No...I don’t.” My voice came out a lot higher and shakier than I had hoped. If gossip traveled so fast at Hogwarts, why wasn’t any one here to help me?!

Lucius smirked, “I didn’t think so. Boys, if you’ll be so kind to get Miss. Evans a drink of.....um...Fire whiskey?”

“No, I don’t drink.”

His smirk grew, “You do now.”

i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!

I don’t know how much time went by, but I could feel the fire whiskey taking over my brain, and I must say it was not a very comforting feeling. I don’t know what the whole hype is about getting drunk off your arse, but let me tell you...it was no picnic for me. I was, now, sitting in the floor. Don’t ask me how I got there. I was just in the floor with Duncan to my right. He was also in the floor.

”More Drink, Miss Evans?” Lucius asked signaling for one of the guys to refill my cup before I could answer.

I closed my eyes as the room spun around me, “I think I’m drunk.” I laid my head back against the green couch. The room began to spin faster.

”You, my lady, are more than drunk. You’re wasted.” Duncan’s breath went all over my face. He was too close for comfort. So I did what all drunken girls do. I giggled. I couldn’t stop giggling. Pretty soon I was lying on the ground holding my side trying to keep it from hurting.

Lucius stood over me, “I think it’s time, boys. You may leave.” For the first time I noticed Severus walking by.

“Hey,” I yelled loudly, “When did you get here, Severus?” Instead of answering me, he gave me a disgusted look before walking on by. Ugh, that was rude.

“Severus! Seeeeeeeveruuuus! Snapey Snape Snape.” I broke out in my giggles.

I tried to sit up but I just got even dizzier and ended up right back where I started from. I felt Lucius grab my hand a pull me up roughly. He pushed me back onto the couch.

“Dirty Mudblood.” He mumbled whipping his hand off on his coat, “Wait till I...”

”Malfoy....Lucius Malfoy?” He looked up to see the owner of the voice. I tried to look back, but my head just came slamming down on the couch, “Ouch....”

”Sirius!” I giggled as he came around the couch, “Boy, are you a sight for sore eyes. Do you know how ugly he gets after the fourth drink?” I pointed towards Lucius with my thumb.

Sirius Black grinned down at me, “You’re drunk.”

I nodded, “I think the term used was ‘wasted’.”

”Black,” Lucius spoke bitterly, “How did you get in here?”

”I’m Sirius Black. Nothing is impossible when you’re me.” He beamed proudly.

”Except potions.” I giggled madly at my lame joke earning a glare from both boys.

”Say Lucius, you weren’t about to do anything illegal or wrong here were you?” Sirius asked.

”Of course not,” Lucius faked surprise, “We were just having a few drinks and a good laugh. Weren’t we, Miss Evans?”

Suddenly I didn’t really feel like talking so I just shook my head ‘no’.

“Well, Miss Evans,” Sirius mocked, “If you’ll be so kind and accompany me to the Gryffindor Tower.” He grabbed my hand and pulled me too my feet.

”I would love to, Mr. Black.” He wrapped my arm around his neck so I wouldn’t fall over and started out the door.

”Whoa, Sirius.” I put a hand on his shoulder, “Not so fast. I’m getting dizzy.”

”Sorry.” He mumbled slowing his pace.

”I’ll get you back, Black!” I heard Lucius yell with an unmistakable anger in his voice.

i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!

”What are we going to do with her?” A voice asked.

”We could put her in her bed.” Another voice suggested.

”And leave her alone for Christmas break?” The first voice asked, “What if a teacher finds her?”

”We could always stick her somewhere under the invisibility cloak.” The second voice amused.

“Stop arguing,” A new voice entered, “We’ll take her back to my house. She can spend Christmas there.”

I turned my head to face Sirius, Remus, and James. I turned it a little more to see Peter sitting next to me. I wrinkled my nose and sat up. Whoa, not the best idea. I groaned earning everyone’s attention.

”She awakes! The fair maiden awakes!” Sirius said as if we were in a Shakespeare play.

I held my head, “I’m still drunk.”

”That’s expected from someone who has drank as much fire-whiskey as you have.” James mumbled moving over to help me to my feet.

”Where are we going?” I asked as he pulled me to the door.

”To my house.” He signaled for everyone to follow.

”No.” I tried to pull away, but I stumbled backwards. Luckily, James had fast reflexes and caught me. “I can’t go with out my stuff. I must get my stuff. Please remove your hands.”

”Sirius and Peter will get your stuff.” James said pulling me closer to the door.

”We will?” Sirius asked from behind us.

”We will.” Peter, eager to please, pulled Sirius by his shirt towards the stairs to the girl’s dorms.

”Don’t touch me.” I heard a slap. I assumed it was Sirius slapping Peter’s hand away.

”Let’s go.” Remus grabbed my other arm and they pulled me out the door.

As the door was closing I heard Sirius yell, “How the hell are we supposed to get up these stairs?”

i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!


We walked down a few flights of stairs slowly so I wouldn’t get too dizzy. I, of course, was the only one talking. I’m always the one who has to do everything.

”Do you want to hear my favorite Poem?” I asked James making him flinch from the alcohol on my breath.

”Not right now.” He said through clenched teeth.
“TWO ROADS DIVERGED IN A YELLOW WOOD, AND SORRY I COULD NOT TRAVEL BOTH-....” I yelled loudly.

”Oh, brother.” Remus mumbled tightening his grip on my arm.

“AND BE ONE TRAVELER, LONG I STOOD. AND LOOKD DOWN ONE AS FAR AS I COULD.”

”Will you keep it down?!” James hissed in my ear, “You’ll wake up the whole school and we’ll never get out of here.”

I pouted, “You’re always so angry at me, James. Why are you angry?”

He sighed, “I’m not angry.”

”I never mean to do anything. I’m a poor little girl minding my own business and suddenly everyone is mad at me. Why are you angry at me, James?”

”I’m not angry with you, Lily. You’re just drunk.” The stopped in front of a small picture of the Womping Willow Tree. Remus mumbled something and the picture frame opened revealing a dark passageway.

”Are we going in there? There might be spiders in there. I don’t want to feel like things are clawing on me all night. At this rate I will never get any sleep.” I used James’s and Remus’s shoulders to lift myself into the air and jump over the entrance. I giggled like a mad woman until I almost slipped. Thank-God for those reflexes James has.

“Do you want to hear my favorite poem?” I asked as the door closed behind us.

i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!i!

Peter and Sirius finally joined us just outside Hogsmeade. I have no clue how we got there. I just know we are there, and I’m about to pass out.

”Call the Knight-bus. Will you Sirius?” James asked shifting me as to where I could lean against his strong frame. I smiled, still drunken, and laid my head on his shoulder.

Sirius held out his wand and with in seconds a double-decker- bus appeared right in front of us. The door opened and a rather young looking man stepped out.

” ’ello James, Sirius, Remus, Pete.” The man said.

”Hello, Stan.” James mumbled pulling me up to keep me from falling to the ground.

”Well, whatcha got ‘here? A girlfriend?”

”Just a friend.” James mumbled. Everyone said there hello’s to Stan and boarded the bus. James with great difficulty considering he was dragging me with him. Once inside I immediately noticed a large chandelier completely out of place.

”Will ya want a bed for the misses?” Stan, not waiting for an answer, led us all upstairs to a small bed with chairs around it.

“This is great. Thanks, Stan.” James said pushing me down on the bed. I groaned and rolled over.

”If ya need anything else. I’ll be back!” With that said Stan exited the room. I groaned again, “I don’t feel so well.”

“Wait to you see how you’ll feel in the morning... You’ll be throwing -Ouch.” James elbowed Sirius to get him to shut up.

I groaned even louder as the bus started up.

”Hang on.” I heard someone say, but didn’t hear them. The bus took off like a speeding bullet making my stomach do flip flops.

”Oh this isn’t good.” I mumbled before my head fell to the side of my bed and all my days food came tumbling out.

A/n: Thanks so much for the reviews. Sorry it took so long to post this chapter! I’ve been sick for about a week and then Hurricane Dennis came and we had to go to my Nana’s house and I was sick up there for a while. It was one big mess. R/R!
