James walked cautiously up the lane towards a big house. The shadow of the house loomed over the road. He looked around and saw a rat scurry to a tree to the left, a black dog digging in the dirt, and a silvery wisp to his right. His friends were all around him. He got to the front door where he knocked. He saw the door open and felt someone grab him. He was thrown in a chair and bound by his hands.

“Hello Mr. Potter.” A hiss came from the shadows. James's eyes adjusted to the darkness in the house but he could only see the slight outline of a man.

“I presume I am talking to Lord Voldemort?” James asked not letting the fear in his heart affect the strength of his voice.

“Yes you are.” Voldemort sneered. Now tell me what I want to know!”

“Let me see Lily first… then... I will tell you.” James said his fear rising. Voldemort’s outline was joined by another. A quiet whisper reached James ears. The outline of the second man disappeared for a minute. When he returned he had a smaller more fragile figure. The second man threw the third figure on the ground and left the room.

“You bastard! Now what the hell do you want?” The figure fired out. James heard that voice and it made his heart soar. He knew that voice anywhere.

“Lily?” James saw the figure move and he guessed it was to turn and face him.

“James? Is that you?” Lily began to move towards him but he was yanked out of his chair and thrown against the wall as a fire in the room was lit. James looked in the direction of Lily and gasped. Her red hair was matted in clumps. She had a black eye and long deep cuts along her neck and forehead. Her lip was swollen and her nose had dried blood around it indicating that she had been hit and a bloody nose had occurred. She wore the long sleeved black shirt and blue jeans that he had seen her in three weeks ago. He imagined that the bruises underneath her cloths were just as bad since her knuckles were bruised and cut.

“Now Mr. Potter tell me what I want to know and you and Miss Evans can leave.” James was about to speak again when he heard an almost silent squeak and felt the bonds on his hands fall away.

“NOW!!!” James yelled throwing himself to the ground and shielding lily. He heard spells being cast as he and Lily crawled to the door. They made it outside as Sirius, Remus, and Peter flew out of the door.

“Nice to see you again, Lily flower. Now let’s go!” Sirius yelled as they all ran down the road, dodging spells. They got a long way away to where they could apperate. James picked Lily, who was too weak to apperate, and apperated but not before he was hit with a spell in the back.

They were greeted a Hogsmede and all of them were taken to the hospital wing. James and Lily aren’t sure how thought because they both were unconscious.

~Later~

James awoke to sunlight shining in his eyes. He blinked as all came into focus. He was lying in the hospital room. Around him were people. As he focused better and saw Sirius, Remus, and Peter asleep on the right side of his bed in chairs. It was then he realized that some one had a hold of his left hand. He looked over and saw a red headed beauty asleep, her hand in his and her head on the edge of the bed.

“Lily.” He spoke quietly but loud enough to stir her. She looked at him and saw his eyes were open.

“Oh James…” She stood up, leaned over the bed and kissed him gently. “I’ll get Madam Pomfrey.” She turned to leave but James pulled her back and she set beside him. “What? Is something wrong?” James shook his head.

“Lily will you hand me my coat?” she did and as he dug in his pocket he spoke.

“Lily… remember back that day at Hogsmede? When I wanted to ask you something but before I could the death eaters attacked?” Lily nodded. “Well you know what I wanted to ask you?” Lily shook her head.

“I’d get down on my knee right now but I might not get up so...” James pulled the small black velvet box. He opened it and inside was a silver banded ring with a small diamond on top. “Lily Evans… will you marry me?” Lily looked at him and tears came to her eyes.

“Yes I will marry you.” She said as he slipped the ring on her finger. Sirius jumped up out of the chair.

“I knew it!!! 5 minutes!!!! Ha ha ha. Pay up Moony. You too Wormtail!!” James and Lily looked confused as Remus explained it to them.

“Sirius made a bet that five minutes after you woke up you would purpose to her and Wormtail and I said you wouldn’t. So Sirius gets his money.” They watched as Sirius jumped from bed to bed in joy. On his second round James, Remus and Peter yelled.

“SIRIUS!! DON”T BREAK YOUR …” They were cut off as yet again Sirius fell, off the bed, on his face.

“Nose.” Remus muttered as Madam Pomfrey yelled

“MR. BLACK!!!!”





In a year James and Lily were married. In a few months Lily found out she was pregnant with a baby boy. James and Lily never forgot what Dumbledore came to tell them right before Harry was born.

“James…Lily… A prophecy has been foretold… A prophecy about your son. “

The one with the power to vanquish the Dark lord approaches
Born to those who have thrice defied him born as the seventh month dies.
The Dark Lord will mark him as his equal but he will have power the dark lord knows not,
And either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives. 
A/n: It's finally done. Reveiw and tell me how I did. Thansk for reading.
