Ch. 4: I hate when you ask me out

Summary: “My mom said that when I’m 45 I can start dating. Will you out with me then?” An 11-year-old James Potter asked me.

My cheeks reddened before I said, “No”


“Because you look weird…”

Ten things I Hate
James Potter

1. I hate that you bully Snape
2. I hate that you get away with anything
3. I hate when you ask me out

“Don’t. Even. Start” I said glaring at the prick who had opened his mouth.

He smiled and said, “I was just going to say continue…”


“Now, from the beginning” I said

I began eating looking around the big and beautiful great hall when someone tapped me on the shoulder. I looked up to see a bespectacled boy in front of me smiling.

“Hi,” He said

“Hi,” I replied awkwardly

“I’m James Potter”

“Lily Evans”

“My mom said that when I’m 45 I can start dating. Will you out with me then?” He asked

My cheeks reddened as I heard chorus of ‘Awe’s and ‘how cute’ before I said, “No”

He looked confused as he asked, “Why?”

“Because you look weird…”

“I did not look weird,” Potter protested as I finish the memory where he first asked me out

“Yes, you did, trust me”

What is that in your eye? Oh, I guess it was just a twinkle”

“What’s that on your face? Oh, wait, that is your face.”

“You’re eyes are as startlingly green, grass...”


“It sounded better in my head”

“I’m sure it did,” I said before I rolled my eyes and left

“If I could hold a star every time you made me smile I would have the entire night sky in the palm of my hand.” He called after me desperately

“I hope the stars explode and you die.” I said as I continue to walk away

“If I could rewrite the alphabet, I would put U and me together.” Potter said cheekily as I finished the memory

I blinked and stared at him as I said, “Me isn’t a letter Potter.”

“I! I meant me…I mean I!”

“I’m sure you did...”

“Ok, how about… If I could rearrange the alphabet, I'd put you between F and CK”

Oh really, because if I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put F and U

"Where have you been all my life?"

"Hiding from the hell did you find me?"

"I know how to please a woman."

"Then please leave me alone."

“You see my friend over there?” he points to Sirius, who grins and waves “He wants to know if you think I’m cute.”

“How much did you pay Sirius to wave?” I said tiredly as I shifted my books to my left side

“Ten galleons... but that’s not the point.” He said quickly as I turned around

“Yes, it is”

"You must be going to hell, because it is a sin to look that good.”

“You must be going to hell, because it is a sin to look that ugly”

“You remember Crayola Crayons? My favorite color always used to be sapphire green, and I just realized... it’s because that’s the color your eyes are.”

“...You have got to be kidding me...” I groaned as I held my head in my hands


“Sapphires are blue!”

“...I knew that...”

“Remus pushed me down the stairs...”

“I have to thank Remus for that later”

“I saw a rose this morning. I thought it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen... that is, until I saw you.”

“I saw a door knob this morning. I thought it was smarter than you, and now I see that I was right.”

“Were you arrested earlier? Because it has to be illegal to look that good.”

“Were you arrested earlier? Because it has to be illegal to look that bad.”

“If you stood in front of a mirror and held up 11 roses, you would see 12 of the most beautiful things in the world.”

“If you stood in front of a mirror, it would break.”


“Did it hurt when you fell from heaven, because I see an angel standing in front of me.”

“Did it hurt when your mother dropped you on your head, because I see some major inflammation”

“Is there something in your eye? Oh, it's just a sparkle.”

“Is there something on your neck? Oh it’s just your big head.”

“Are you tired? Because you've been running through my mind all day.”

“Does your head hurt? Cause it’s been overexerting itself trying to be human.”

“Evans! That was almost a compliment!”

“Guess I’m losing my touch.”

“The shortest word for me is I, the sweetest word for me is LOVE, but the only word for me is YOU.”

“Love is also the longest word you know, isn’t it?”

“Roses are red, violets are blue, you are sweet, and I love you.” He continued ignoring my comment

“Tomatoes are red, ashes are black, go to hell, and never come back”

"Hey Evans, did it hurt falling from the sky? Because you look like an angel!”

“Hey Potter, I know what will probably hurt... my knee in your balls” I smirked as he widened his eyes.

"If I could see you naked, I'd die happy”

"Yeah, but if I saw you naked, I'd probably die laughing".”

“Excuse me, do you have your phone number, I seem to have lost mine.”

“Of course, it’s 305- get-lost”

“Dang, where’s a pen when you need it”

“And the one I love the most” I said

“Did it hurt?”

“What, when I fell from heaven?”

“Oh my God, you really did fall from heaven???”

“...You amaze me sometimes...”

“Is that a good thing?”

“I’ll let you interpret that anyway you like.”


“I still don’t get that,” Potter said scratching his head
