Author Note: The song lyrics are so bad they can be only mine!!!

“Dum dum de dum dum!”

We all were sitting in the garden humming to the tune of a popular song from the new album of Roaring Roaches called ‘Love Party’.

“That was the moment…” sang Sirius

“The one moment…” continued James.

“When I realized how much …”

“Very much!” I piped in, holding up the rolled up Daily Prophet as the mike and bringing it closer to James and Sirius who were taking turns in singing the guy parts. Lily just watched us as she did not listen to wizard music as she grew up with muggles.

“I was in love with…” sand Sirius.


“You…” Sirius finished, taking the ‘paper mike’ away from me and throwing his head backwards to sing the last few lines.

“Save the last dance for me
Forever let it be
That you are the only one…
Baby I love you,
But I dint have a clue,
Till the moment I looked into your eyes
The one moment made a difference…
The one moment changed my life…
The one moment made me realize
That I Love You!”

He sang grinning around at everybody. James and I joined in the chorus.

“That was the moment
The one moment
When I realized how much
I was in love with

Lily finished off the song by drumming against the school text book. We all clapped. The next song started but we were too tired to do that again. It was like the moment was gone. It would be fun only if it happened unplanned like this one did. It all started out with James humming and Sirius joining in and it became like a full-fledged mock-performance. Lily laughed along with the rest of us.

“How come you never listen to this stuff Evans?”

“Cos I grow up with muggles Potter!” she said, rolling over and lying on the grass on her tummy and looking up at James with her head cocked to one side, her rich red wavy longish hair flowing to one side elegantly.

Did I mention that Lily is one of the most beautiful girls in our year? This probably explains why James was just staring at her. Not many people can recognize that look on his face and people think he is listening intently… but I know that he was staring at Lily. I don’t blame him. And from the look on Sirius’ face it was clear that Sirius had noticed too. Sirius caught my eye and gave me a small smile. He and I simultaneously hit James on the back of his head like we always do when we catch him staring at her.

“Ow! What did you guys do that for?” he asked dumbly.

“Do you want me to answer that?” asked Sirius laughing.

“I don’t think Lily does!” I said smirking at Lily. Lily blushed, embarrassed.


“What?” I asked innocently.

“Forget it! You are so going to pay!”

“Let me see, you always say this when I tease you with James and somehow I get away with it!” I replied as Sirius laughed harder, leaning against me to support himself. His laughter was infectious and I started laughing for no reason at all. It caught on and Lily and James started laughing too.

“Lily… Lily you look pretty when you laugh!” said James looking at her. Lily blushed again. She usually does this when James makes her feel uncomfortable by saying things like that. I don’t blame her. It would be weird if a really good friend has a crush on you and acts on it. Weird and embarrassing. Like now. I hit James on his head. Yea I do that a lot. It doesn’t hurt. Not much anyway. I don’t know. Anyway, before I ramble off to my different ways of hitting which I am most likely to do…

“Thanks… I guess…” she said awkwardly.

“Do you have to do that James?” whined Sirius who was still lying against me but not laughing anymore.

“Ask Juliet to stop hitting me!”

“I won't!” said Lily smirking. That was the best thing about her. She never made you feel uncomfortable around her. She was always light-hearted about stuff. Just like me. Only I am light hearted all the time and there are some times when Lily gets serious. Like exams and studies. And I get the time to be serious and think when I am not talking. And when I am not talking outside, I talk to you guys! So basically the time is nil. And it is a great thing that Lily is a listener. Or else I wouldn’t survive. I just realized that Sirius was not as light as he thought he was.

“Sirius!” I said trying to push him away.

“What?” he asked irritated, not budging.

“You are heavy!”

“So?” he said raising an eyebrow. His hair fell into his eyes, not hiding the mischievous glint in them.

“Get off!” Sirius wouldn’t budge. “James!” I whined turning to my brother for help.

“Get up Sirius!” said James in a bored voice.

“But I am comfortable and settled big bro!”

“To do what?” I demanded, my palm hurting against the grass as I strained to hold the two of us up, “James!”

“Sirius!” said James uninterested. This happens all the time. Sirius annoys me and I turn to James for help and James, a really sweet big bro, yea we are 2 minutes apart, helps me out. Sometimes he takes Sirius’ side but I am just glad he took mine now. It was a hot summer day and I was too bothered to bother about Sirius crushing me to death. Did that make sense?

“All right!” said Sirius getting up with a groan, a grouchy look on his face. He opened his mouth to say something.

“Don’t even bother!” said James sensing that Sirius was about to say something stupid.

We all laughed. This is pretty much about what we do together. Hang out, joke, laugh and have fun.
