So I wasn’t planning on updating so soon, but the queue said only 1 day, so I decided to go ahead and write this. This is a pretty big chapter for Lily. She is really figuring out things she never knew. Anyway, Molly is in this chapter a LOT. I love Molly, and this is what I think she was like then. She wasn’t originally in the story, but I came up with the idea, and immediately added her in. So anyway, enjoy chapter 3! I will add these as fast a I can, but I do have school and lots of other things so on a regular basis expect one about once every 8 days or so. REVIEW!

                                           Seven Minutes in Heaven

                                         

                                          Chapter 3

                                        Every Word

 

 

Molly ran out after her. “Lily wait!” she called after her. “Come back!” she caught up with her. Molly knew why Lily had chosen to tell her. She was a very understanding person. But even Molly couldn’t handle this one. Lily was being incredible stubborn. Molly had been watching Lily. She knew the look in Lily’s eye when James pulled a prank on her. It wasn’t hate, or loathing. It was love, and admiration. Lily had been in love with James since the first time she had laid eyes on him. But she didn’t know that then. Sweet, immature, first year Lily had thought that feeling was hate, and she went along with it. And now, the Lily of seventh year was too stubborn to see what was right in front of her. Lily didn’t know why she turned down every guy that asked her out, but Molly did; it was because Lily loved another.

 

            But apparently Lily had finally figured it out. She had been forced to see what was right in front of her. And she had faced the truth. And it had killed her.

 

            Lily ran through the Head Common Room past the Marauders, Arthur, Frank, Sarah, and Maria and to the door that led to the passageway to the Gryffindor Common Room. Molly ran after her, shooting an apologetic smile to James, who looked about ready to crush someone because Lily crying was #4 on his Lily Look List, his least favorite. Molly followed Lily through the door. Once they were safely inside, Lily collapsed, sobbing. Molly sat down next to her and just put her arms around Lily.

 

“James- I never thought- I always thought” she hiccupped “I always thought that the feeling I felt around him was – was hate.” (hiccup) “I never knew it was” (another hiccup) was love.” Tears flowed down her cheeks. “This whole time, I was in love with him.”

 

“You need to tell him,” Molly said.

 

“I know. But what do I say? ‘Sorry James, it turns out I never hated you, I always loved you, I was just to stupid to know it?’”

 

“Yes. And if James is really the right guy for you, he will understand!”

 

Lily leaned back on the wall, not really crying anymore. “And what about you?” she asked smugly.

 

“What about me?” Molly asked, absentmindedly.

 

“Are you going to tell Arthur that you love him?”

 

“WHAT?” Molly shrieked.

 

“I know you like him, don’t lie to me!” Lily said, rolling around laughing.

 

“No-stop Lily” Molly stuttered.

 

“Oh come on Molly,” Lily said.

 

“Okay! I will say it! I love Arthur Weasley! There, are you happy?”

 

“Uh, YEAH?” Lily said sarcastically.

 

“So what do you want me to do about it?”

 

“Tell him!”

 

“Okay, lets make a little deal. I will tell Arthur that I like him, when you tell James you like him.”

 

“Fine!”

 

“Fine!”

 

“Wait what?” Lily said. “I can’t tell James!”

 

More gently, Molly said “Yes you can. Just tell him. If he loves you like I think he does, he will understand.”

 

“I’ll do it,” Lily said. “I’ll tell James that I love him.”

 

And, a few feet away, James quietly shut the door, having heard every word.
