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 Twenty-Two:Cruel Intentions

James was wrong. James was very very wrong. So was Sirius. Can’t forget Sirius being wrong. There was no way in hell me and Maggie could ever been friends. She was worse than Mary! At least I could tolerate Mary and even talk to her some times, but with Maggie I couldn’t even think of a good come back. She was sweet and nice to me around all the boys, but the minute their backs were turn she was shoving insults in my face.

“Lily, dear, don’t just stand there get ready! I won’t have my friends know I’ve been living with a bum.” She said while putting on her favorite red lip stick.

I growled, “I am ready.”

“Oh, my.” She giggled a little, “Well, I guess that’s the best dress you could come up with.” I didn’t bother pointing out that James picked it out for me. Why should I?

She sprayed half a gallon of perfume on her neck and then some more on her way too short black dress, “I’m going on downstairs to help James greet the guest. Take your time coming down. Maybe if you wait long enough people won’t even see you slip into the crowd.” I watched the girl leave shooting daggers at her with my eyes.

I looked myself in the full length mirror. The red dress did look a little plain, but I still liked it. I bit my lip as I pulled my hair out of a clip and let it hang down on my shoulders. I guess this was as good as it was going to get.

There was a knock at the door. “Come in.” I yelled still looking the mirror.

“Lily?” Peter’s small voice reached my ears.

“Yeah?” I asked looking away from my reflection.

“I was, uh, I was wondering if you’ you’d give me the honor of escorting you down the stairs to the party.” Peter shift from foot to foot. I bit my bottom lip. If I said yes, I’d be leading him on like Remus claims I do. If I say no, I have to walk down there alone seeing James and Maggie standing together. Not that I care if they are together.

I had been trying to avoid Peter ever since Christmas Eve. He hadn’t said anything about the kiss...maybe he forgot. Yeah, Lily, and I’m sure James has forgotten too.

“Sure, Peter, I’d love you to escort me.”

He gave me a small smile. I got that eerie feeling again, but brushed it off. “Let’s go.” I said wrapping my arm between his.


Harriet and Frank were working tonight. Apparently they trust the boys to leave them alone with their house full of teenagers. My parents would have killed me for even suggesting the idea, but as I said before, I don’t think this is going to be a normal teenager party.

As me and Peter reached the last step of the basement, I was starting to feel a lot more confident. The basement was decorated the same way as it was the other day, and still looked beautiful. We had done a great job.

There were tons of people I had never seen before, and they were all in their finest clothes. One would think this was an adult business party, not some teenage get together. Of course, the music is a lot better than it would be at an adult party.

I immediately noticed Peter leading me over to the others. All the boys, including Peter, were dressed in tuxes, and looked very sharp. All the girls had on different dresses except for a few who wore dressy suites. I pulled my arm away from Peter.

“Hey mates.” Peter said as we reached the rest of them. They all turned from their conversation to look at us. James caught my eye, but I looked away. He doesn’t deserve my attention.

Sirius whistled, “Lily Evans, you look absolutely charming. Doesn’t she, James?” Sirius raised his eye brows up and down.

“Yeah,” James said quietly, “Very lovely.” I resisted the urge to gloat in Maggie’s face.

“James, darling, I feel like dancing.” She said her stupid pouty voice that made my stomach feel like gagging. What was even more sickening is James fell right into her little trap. Stupid Prat.

“Oh,” He said setting down his glass of punch, “Would you like to, uh, dance?”

Maggie placed her hand in his, “I’d love to. Thanks for asking.” They walked off.

“So, Evans, what do you think of the party?”

I smiled, “It’s nice. A bunch of people I don’t know...”

“Lily!” A loud voice shrieked behind me.

I winced and turned around knowing exactly who the voice belonged to. Mary Huer-wood.

I put on a fake smile, “Hi, Mary.” She was already drunk.

“Hello, darling. Have you seen Sirius?” I looked over at him and he just grinned.

Mary caught sight of him, “There you are! I want another drink, Sirius, and no one will get me one.”

Sirius chuckled, “I think you’ve already had enough.”

Mary pouted, “Oh Siri, you’re just like the rest of them.” She wondered off leaving me trying not to laugh.

“The party has barely even started and she is already drunk!”

Sirius nodded, “This party is never complete with out Mary getting drunk before it even starts.”

The song ended and I noticed James and Maggie making there way back over to us. James was all smiles, “Evans, wanna dance? Heaven knows you could use the practice.”

I grinned as I noticed Maggie pouting, “I’d love to.” I can’t believe I just agreed to that. I hate dancing. I’m bad at it! Plus, I don’t know how to act around James.

“But, James-love, you escorted me down the stairs.” She pouted while holding on to his arm. She wasn’t going to let go just yet.

James removed her hands, “One dance won’t hurt, right Lily? Besides, you can dance with Sirius.”

Maggie frowned for a second, but soon smiled, “That’s alright. You go ahead. I’ll get you two some punch.”

“That a girl.” James smiled before leading me out to the dance floor.


The dance went surprisingly well. I didn’t step on James’s foot but one time. He was proud of that. Well, if he wasn’t I sure was. I held his hand tightly as he led me through the crowd and back to the others. I had no clue where Peter disappeared off to, but I’m kind of glad he disappeared.

We found Maggie holding two large cups of punch in her hands waiting on us. She immediately handed me one and sat the other down. “James, dance with me again. Sirius left me alone.”

James smiled, “Sure.” I took a sip of the drink and nearly spat it back out.

Maggie laughed, “Too bitter? Trust a boy to make the punch all wrong.” They left me alone again. This time I sat on the empty couch and watched everyone dance. The basement suddenly felt a lot smaller and stuffier. I sipped on my punch trying to cool off a bit. I licked my lips suddenly loving the taste of this punch. It tasted rather familiar. I downed the whole thing and reached for James’s cup. He wouldn’t miss it too much.

Soon enough the entire cup was gone. I frowned staring at it. I needed more. I stood up quickly getting dizzy fast. “Whoa...” I mumbled holding on to the arm rest for support. I walked quickly, trying to keep from falling, to the punch bowl. I drank another cup full but it didn’t have the satisfying taste that I longed for. I walked, slowly this time, back to the couch. Sirius was sitting there alone. I sat down next to him.

“Hey, Evans. Having fun?”

I turned to look at him slowly and smiled, “Do you want to hear my favorite poem?”

He looked at me with widened eyes. “Oh, no!” He groaned, “Not again. Evans, Please tell me you aren’t drunk.”

I tried to laugh but it turned into a hiccup, “I’m not drunk.”

He groaned, “Great.” I stood up on the couch.

“TWO ROADS DIVERGED IN A YELLOW WOOD, AND SORRY I COULD NOT TRAVEL BOTH...” I yelled causing everyone around me to stare at me.

“Evans,” Sirius said quickly pulling me down.

“Phewwwww!” I giggled as I landed on my backside.

“Evans, you’ve gotta keep quiet, ok? You’ll regret it later if you don’t.”

I smiled and nodded, “Ok.”

Sirius sighed, “Ok.” The minute he let go of my arm I was back to standing up, “AND BE ONE TRAVELER, LONG I STOOD. AND LOOKD DOWN ONE AS FAR AS I COULD.”

“Lily!” Sirius hissed pulling me down, “Come on, Evans. Don’t yell. Don’t talk. Don’t giggle.” I began to giggle anyways.

“Lily, stop...LOOK! LOOK!” He said pointing behind me, “There’s James. You like James. Sit here quietly and smile pretty for James.” I turned around quickly just in time to see Maggie lean over and kiss James square on the lips. James didn’t pull away.

I swallowed hard. Tears forming in my eyes. Even though I was drunk I could still comprehend that I had been used. I turned back to Sirius and the dam in my eyes broke. “He USED me!” I yelled placing my face in my hands, “I’m just a girl for him to kiss whenever he feels like it. Well, I have news for that stupid idiot....I didn’t even like his kisses!” My sobs were so loud people had stopped dancing to stare at me. “The stupid Bastard! I’m going home!” I yelled turning and leaving the room.

“Evans!” I heard Sirius yell behind me, but I just kept going.

A/n: I am a lazy bum. There’s no doubting it. I’m completely lazy. I don’t know how many times I sat down to respond to all of yall’s reviews, and just couldn’t. Plus I had homework after homework after homework, and this chapter is too short. It’s all piling up on me. Anyways, I ended up just thanking everyone. I promise the next responses will be a lot longer and more one on one. Thanks for all of the reviews. The next chapter will be posted as soon as I write it.
