Graduation was two days away, and Lily and James were lying on the Head common room’s sofa, in front of the fire, James had his arm draped over Lily’s shoulders, and Lily had her head rested on his chest.

Lily had been thinking, and realized she didn’t have a clue as to what she would do once out of Hogwarts.

“James what are you gonna go when we leave.” Lily asked.

“Erm stay at home for a while, then I guess I assumed I would move in with you, you know get a little house.” James said uncertainly, hoping Lily was thinking along the same lines, and wouldn’t run off.

Instead Lily smiled at James.

“I guess that sounds good.” Lily said, James smiled and kissed the top of her head, and to be completely honest he had something a little different planned.

Lily was dressed up in her best school robes, as Head Girl she had to give a speech and she was really scared. James was trying to sort out his hair, while Lily applied enough make-up to make sure she looked great, but without giving the wrong impression, she had charmed her hair into a half ponytail, with her hair curly, but with a straight side fringe. She looked quite good, she slipped on her little black ballet styled shoes. And smile at her reflection.

She met James outside waiting in the common room, she beamed at Lily.

“You look fantastic.” He checked his watch. “We have an hour before the whole things starts. Mum and dad will be here soon. Do you wanna go up to Gryffindor common room and collect the others?” James asked once he had placed a kiss on Lily’s cheek.

“Yeah that sounds like a good idea.” Lily said smiling at James, she laced her fingers with his and left towards the Gryffindor common room, on her way she met many of her friends, bid farewell with promises to catch up and send owls.

When they reached the Gryffindor common room they found it was a flurry of Sirius, Remus, peter, Morgan, Katie and Alice running around trying to ensure they looked good, Alice and Remus more then the other, as they were prefects and had to be on stage a bit more then the other, bar Lily and James of course.

When, after another fifteen minutes of yelling, they were finally ready together they made their way down to the entrance hall. Inside everyone was being told where to sit. Head Girl and boy were to sit right up front , prefects next to them, then behind them it was Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and then Hufflepuff.

“Potter! Evans!” McGonagall called. “Are you ready for your speeches?” She asked, and sent a rare smile when the heads nodded.

And then too soon they found them selves seated.

Dumbledore took his place at the centre stage.

“Welcome, everyone. It is time again for us to bid farewell to our seventh years. And may I say, I do believe this to be one of the most fantastic year groups.” Dumbledore said smiling proudly at the seventh years. “I have watched you grow from small children, to the magnificent adults you are. And In times of danger I saw you come together and protect one another, I watched as in times of happiness when you shared it with everyone. If there is anything that I am glad. It is that I had the chance to get to know you all so well.” Dumbledore said, applause broke out, many teachers were crying, and it shocked most that McGonagall was crying the most.

“Our Head Students have been asked to make a speech. So Lily Evans and James potter, if you please.” Dumbledore said then stepped back and sat down allowing Lily and James to stand up front.

“Well what do I say? I’m a muggleborn, I had no idea that any of this was real. Then I was thrown into this world. I made new, great friends, I learned so many things, I gained strength, and I found things I never believed I could at such an age.” Lily said she smiled at James. “I couldn’t have made this journey without the help of everyone that I was surrounded by. I mean ok up until fifth year I had one friend, who still to this day I hold close to my heart.” Lily smiled at Severus, who actually cracked a small smile back. “But then with the help of a certain group, of lets admit it, idiots I made lots of news friends, and found someone I want to spend the rest of my life with. And it’s all down to this school, and although I’m sad to be leaving, in reality there will always be a space in my heart for this place, and the teachers.”

Lily kissed James on the cheek as another round of applause broke out.

“Let’s get the first thing over with, no one believed that it would be me standing here did they?” James laughed as did the crowd. “I was part of the marauders, notorious pranksters, I got daily detentions, the top prefect, Miss Evans here, hated me. But here I am. I often joked that Dumbledore, forgive me, was high when he appointed me Head Boy, but to be honest I have never enjoyed something as much as this, and yes Sirius I am including Quidditch. But it was stressful, we had ups and downs. But again here I am. I have the most loyal friends I guy could ask for, and I found someone I love.” James grabbed Lily’s hand and smiled at her. “But it is all down to the teachers at this school. Without their guidance and trust I would probably still be the immature boy I was a few years ago. So thank you.” James finished.

They were excused, and went back to sit down, the prefects were call up, and each congratulated, then they sat back down, and Dumbledore stood before everyone again.

“As I call your name please collect your certificate.” He said and then called off names, the student would go to their head of house, collect the scroll with a shake of the hand, then shake Dumbledore’s hand. Only with it was Sirius’ turn he hugged both McGonagall and Dumbledore, as did James and Lily.

All the students were then called to the stage for a photo for what lily was told the school year book, which the teachers had made for the students.

Then everyone was turned out of the great hall so they could set up the great hall for a meal.

The four house tables had been gotten rid off and instead there was a table which went around the outside of the hall, and in the centre was a dance floor. Lily and James were sitting with Bridget, Harold, Sirius, Remus, Peter, Morgan, Katie, Alice, and their family.

Everyone was laughing. The music started.

“May the Heads please take the first dance.” Dumbledore requested, and as the two Heads reached the dance floor their school uniform transformed into gorgeous dress robes, James was wearing a black set of robe, Lily was wearing a stunning black dress, with a low back, and a slit up the side.

Lily laughed at this, as James reached for her and drew her close, Lily rested her head in the crook of his neck and closed her eyes as she swayed with James. Missing completely the wink James sent Dumbledore.

Halfway through the dance James pulled back slightly and looked down at Lily.

“I love you.” He whispered.

“I love you too.” Lily said smiled at him softly.

The James got down on one knee and looked up at Lily taking a small black box, he opened it revealing a white gold ring, with an emerald, and a diamond either side.

“Lily Evans, will you marry me?”
