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 Nineteen: Life in the Fast Lane

“Here’s one for you, Evans!” Sirius yelled throwing a package in front of me. It was wrapped in all red wrapping paper with the words ‘Happy Christmas’ written very neatly all over it in gold letters. It also had a gold ribbon wrapped all around it. It was probably the prettiest present I had ever received.

I sat crossed legged in front of all the presents next to Peter, Remus, James, and Sirius. Harriet and Frank sat side by side on the couch exchange their own presents. I watched smiling slightly as Harriet was showered with gifts from Frank.

By the time all the presents were pasted out I had a total of six presents. One from Mr. and Mrs. Potter, One from Petunia, One from mom, One from dad, and two from my Secret Santa. I was hoping to find out who it was, but unfortunately they had signed it ‘From your Secret Santa.’ Of course, I had done that to Remus too, but....I still wanted to know!!

“May the opening begin!” Remus yelled and we all began ripping into our presents. I hurried with mine so I could watch the others open theirs. We had all made a pact to open our Secret Santa’s last.

The first present I got was a blue hair brush from Petunia. I recognized as the one that gave me a black eye last summer. What a lovely gift. Oh look, her hair is still in it. I just hope my bottle of the same sticky glue that glued her butt to a chair was just as good.

The next present was a copy of Hogwarts: a History from my Dad. He must have picked it up last time we were shopping for school supplies. He was always so considerate. I hope he liked his golf balls I got him.

My mom had sent me twelve different novels. Most of them I had never heard of and was very anxious to read. One of them did have a great meaning. Anne of Green Gables. The same book she used to stay up reading to me all night when I was little. I honestly loved it.

The last present was from Frank and Harriet. I was completely eager to see what they had picked out for me. I gasped in shock at what it was. A beautiful gold necklace in the shape of a heart with the letter “L” written in cursive on it. It was breath taking. I knew I would wear it forever.

I grinned, “Thank you so much for the necklace.”

Harriet smiled back, “I’m glad you like it. Thank you so much for my book.”

“Yes,” Frank agreed, “Now, I’ll get to the bottom of how these muggle cars truly work. Thank you, dear.”

“Your welcome.” I said quietly looking down at my presents.

“Let’s open our Secret Santa’s!” Harriet grinned.

Once again everyone began ripping into presents. I opened the little packet first saving the prettiest for last. I smiled at the present in my hand. It was another book. Another one I had never heard of but it had a sticker on it that said ‘Best Seller’. I’m sure it’s bound to be good.

Finally, I reached my destination. The moment I had been waiting for. It was hard waiting those twenty minutes to get to this presents. Never mind the fact I got to open a bunch of good presents during that time.

I tore it slowly wanting to cherish the moment. I tore one corner at a time careful not to rip the paper too much. Finally, I got to it to reveal a........white box.

I frowned. And it was taped on all the ends. Was it really necessary to tape the box close? I mean if I wanted to get into the box earlier I wouldn’t have gone to all the trouble of ripping open the Christmas paper just to see the box taped and say ‘Oh Darn! It’s taped; I guess I can’t open it.’

Finally I broke all the tape and slide the top off, and sat it to my side. There were white sheets of paper covering the present. Apparently it was some type of outfit. I moved the paper, and gasped at what I saw. It was the black lace night gown!

I quickly covered it with the paper and box top then shoved it to the side. I looked around to see if anyone noticed. I thought I’d at least see Sirius snickering in the corner, James smirking, Remus smiling, or even Peter blushing. All I saw were them eagerly ripping into their presents. Not a one noticed. I sighed in relieve. At least I had narrowed down my choices as too who could have been my Secret Santa. After all, I’m sure it wasn’t Harriet or Frank.


“That was a wonderful meal, Harriet.” Frank said kissing his wife’s cheek, “I’ve never eaten so much in my life.” Everyone nodded in agreement.

“It was pretty nice, wasn’t it?” She clapped her hands together marveling over all the left-overs on the table. There was hardly any. “Now, Frank, wouldn’t it be fun to help me do the dishes?” She winked at him.

“OOO, and the kids can go downstairs so we with the water sprayer.” Frank grinned standing up to follow his wife the kitchen.

“Ugh!” James yelled after them, “Please, at least wait till we go to bed!” He sighed and shook his heads, “Parents...”

I smiled drawing small circles with my finger on the table clothe, “I think it’s sweet they are so in love.” I looked up after it was silent for a while. They were all staring at me. “What?”

Sirius shook his head grinning slightly, “Nothing, Evans, Nothing.” Was it something I said?

“No,” I insisted, “Tell me.”

He sighed, “You’re just such a girl.”

I blinked, “Gee, I’m sorry. I’ll try not to be.”

“Come on,” James said standing up from the table, “Let’s go into the basement before my parents’ voices drift in from the kitchen.


We spent the rest of the day listening to music, dancing, playing games, and just talking. It felt great. I was still sad to be away from my parents, but I could tell I was beginning to relax a lot more. Who knows....maybe when we return to Hogwarts I’ll be able to make full conversation with a person without witty/sarcastic remarks. Maybe.

“It’s late.” Sirius said looking at his muggle watch he had received from James for Christmas, “It’s not even Christmas anymore.”

James yawned, “I guess we should head to bed. We have to spend tomorrow getting stuff ready for the party.”

I frowned, “What party?”

“The Winter Bash James throws every year. I told you about it in class.” Sirius reminded while standing up and stretching. I had completely forgotten about the party. I would have to attend. I would have to talk to people I didn’t know, people I did know, and worse people who don’t know me but know someone who knows me. They would all find out I was spending the holidays here. Gossip was going to fly.

“You’re invited,” James said joining Sirius in his stretching, “Wear your red dress. It’s semi-formal.”

I nodded slowly, “Ok.” I stood up too, “Let’s go to bed.”

Remus nodded standing up, “This was a great Christmas.” He smiled, “Happy Christmas!” He yelled one more time knowing he wouldn’t get to say it again till next year.

I smiled, “Happy Christmas.” We all started to walk towards the stairs.

“Lily,” Peter said quietly. Everyone stopped and looked at him. He coughed nervously, “ need to talk to you for a second.”

I shrugged and sat back down, “ok.” The rest of the boys also shrugged and sat down.

Peter coughed again, “I, um...I mean alone.”

“Oh.” I said realizing this was going to be more than ‘Did you have a good Christmas?’

Unfortunately Sirius realized it too, “Stay away from the mistletoe!” He yelled as me and Peter walked out a back door on the side of the basement.

I wrapped my arms around my chest, “Phew, it’s incredibly chilly.”

He blew hot air in his hands, “Yeah...It is.” I noticed he was looking all around. Everywhere except at me. It was the way he always looked when talking to me alone.

“Wasn’t there something you had to ask me?” I urged him on. The sooner he said it. The sooner we could go to bed.

“Yeah...I uh....Gee, Lily, I’m sorry I was so forward with you before. I just...I’ve never had a girl go on a date with me.”

I resisted the urge to frown, “That’s ok, Peter. I guess I’m sorry I yelled at you.”

He grinned and finally looked me in the eye, “You’re the best, Lily.” He then leaned in a pecked me on the lips so quick I barely noticed it happened. “Happy Christmas!” He yelled running back inside.

This time I openly frowned. Was that really my first kiss?


I hummed Jingle Bells happily while looking over my Christmas Presents. I was wearing the necklace, and the books were scattered all over the bed. The hair brush had been discarded somewhere and I intended to leave it there. Finally, I stared blankly at the box that held the black lace nightmare. Ok, it’s not really a nightmare. It was very nice if you were into that kind of thing. Luckily for me, no one would ever see me in it. I didn’t intend on wearing it ever again. Well, not after tonight! I tore open the box and pulled it out. It still looked the same only for some reason...more tempting.

I eagerly put it on. It fit exactly the same as it had in the store only this time I had a mirror to look at myself in. I poked my stomach to see if it would go in. It didn’t. I pushed my boobs up to see if they would look bigger. They didn’t. Before I could let go, the door opened and James walked in.

“Lily, Do you want- Whoa.” He froze in place for a few minutes before using his foot to kick the door completely closed.

I quickly dropped my hands, but realized my mistake. He could see almost everything through the lace. I crossed my arms over my chest. Where was that stupid wrap?

He grinned, “I see you liked your Christmas present.”

I blushed, “Y-You, uh, you got this for me?”

He nodded, “Yes, I do believe I did.”

“Why?” I asked frowning.

This time he blushed, “Well, uh....It looked good on you.” He looked back at me and let his eyes drop low and come back up, “Still Does.”

I gapped at him. I must have looked like a gold fish. I didn’t know whether to slap him and be mad or to smile and kiss his cheek. I settled for blushing and looking away. Suddenly I felt a finger run down my arm. I shivered and glanced up noticing James was standing awfully close.

“You know where else it would look good?” He asked in a low husky voice. His breath caressed my ear. I swallowed hard and shook my head ‘no’. “On the floor.”

I closed my eyes as his loose lips smashed against my tight ones, but they didn’t move away quickly like Peter’s. They continued to move against mine making me relax and move back against them. Before I knew it his tongue was moving against my bottom lip making me gasp and open my mouth wider. He took that as a chance to move in.

I heard a soft moan knowing it had come from me as his tongue worked magic. This was a completely new feeling and it was truly heaven. ‘Romance novels didn’t do it justice.’ I thought as he slowly led me to sit on the bed not taking his lips away from mine. He pushed harder into my mouth making me lean back until my back was against the pillow.

He moved away breaking the kiss, but still allowing our noses to touch. I was gasping for air and he was barely breathing hard. I wonder how many times he has done this. No, I’m not going to think about other girls with him. I’m going to enjoy my turn.

This time we both met in the middle to start another kiss. It moved much fast since his tongue was in my mouth from the start. Before I knew it he was kissing a hot trail down my chin to reach my neck. I moaned lightly again as his nibbled, kissed, and sucked at my neck. It delivered a rather new feeling all over my body. Awaking places I had never known could feel so great.

His hands were moving as fast as his mouth. They tugged eagerly at the sleeves of my night-dress trying their hardest to get it down. When he had the thin strap pulled down as far as it could go on its own I pulled my arm up and through it. We did the same with the other allowing my night gown to drop down below my chest.

“Lily.” James mumbled kissing even lower.

“James.” I said back half teasing/half serious. He broke away from my skin and lifted my arms above my head. I gasped as he licked from the bottom of my underarm down to the tip of my breast.

Suddenly the door opened and we jumped a part quickly. “Whoa!” Sirius practically yelled covering his eyes with his hands. This time James and I were both gasping for breath. “Now must not be a...I guess I’ll....Maybe I should....I’ll be back later.” Sirius stumbled over his words before retreating from the room.

James let out a deep breath and ran his fingers through his messy hair, “I...uh...I’m guessing the mood is completely killed.” I had pulled the night-gown up high around my chest and clenched it so tight I was sure my knuckles were white. I barely gained up enough strength to nod my head in agreement.

He stood up and gave me a semi-smile, “Well, then, I’m off to take a cold shower.”

The minute he left the room I buried my head in my pillow and screamed as loud as I could.

A/n: Finally!!! The moment we’ve all been waiting for arrived. What’d ya think? I thought it flowed pretty nicely. I hope you guys did. Please be sure and review to tell me.

Thanks for all of the reviews!!!!!!
