Oh Merlin. Oh God. Oh poo!

I cannot believe I just said that! I really can’t believe I just said that. I really, really can’t believe I just said that!

Maybe if I close my eyes and wish really hard, time will turn back and I will not tell the entire world that I dream about Remus Lupin. Remus Lupin in my kitchen. Remus Lupin in my bedroom!

Okay, here I go. Right, eyes are shut. I really, really, really wish that I did not just tell Remus Lupin that I dream about him being in my bedroom.

Okay… 1, 2, and 3! Eyes open.

I hate you Merlin.

It didn’t work! I can still hear, and now see, James and Sirius rolling around on the ground laughing. I really do hope they wet their pants. Then maybe I will be the one laughing at them!

Har har har! No, wait. They haven’t wet themselves; therefore it is not appropriate to laugh. Damn.

Oh God. Oh Goddy God, God. Remus is looking at me! Look away! I demand you turn away right now! Hmm. He hasn’t looked away. Maybe he needs to brush up on his mind reading skills? Wait what? Shut up brain!

Is my face as red as his? It certainly feels like it!

That’s it. I need to get out of here! Possibly to find a nice rock that I can hide under for the rest of eternity.

Hmm, that sounds quite nice actually. Wait, that means I have to dig a hole under said rock first in order for me to fit. That sound like a lot of work… Maybe the girls toilets will do for now until I gather the upper body strength…

“I…err… go pee now” Oh Merlin. Will the embarrassment never stop?!

Apparently not. Just as I got up so I could run from the compartment and never return, the train gave a jolt and I smacked my head into the door. Bloody brilliant.

“Are you alright?” I heard Remus ask me. I can’t look at him. If I do, I think I might die. It is possible to die of embarrassment I tell you!

“Oh Shaylee! You’re bleeding!” Lily cried out in surprising kindness. Maybe she wants something of mine? Wait, I’m bleeding?! Oh it’s just a nose bleed. I seem to get those when Remus Lupin and jolting trains are involved.

“Come on let’s go to the bathroom and get you cleaned up,” Lily said, again using her kind voice while gently moving me out of the compartment. Right, she defiantly wants something. 

                                                                      * * *

Well this is extremely awkward, not to mention weird. Lily and I are walking down the hall on our way to the loos so she can stop my bleeding nose and neither of us has said anything.

Well I’m not going to say anything until she does! I’m taking a vow of silence. That is, until Evans says something to me, therefore meaning she has spoken first, which means I win! Ahahahaha! Wait, what?

“Oh look, it’s raining.” I really would be a crap monk.

Lily Evans just smiled at me! I think the world is coming to an end! Any minute now there will be a gigantic boom and the world will cease to exist!

Okay so maybe it’s not the end of the world but its bloody weird!

Why did she smile at me anyway? All I said is it’s raining. Was it a, ‘Aha! It is indeed raining, thank you for pointing that out Shaylee. Now prepare for your doom!’ type of smile or just a, ‘Oh would you look at that, it is raining. Now prepare for your doom! ’

I’m not sure if I like either one.

“Okay. Sit on that sink there and I’ll be able to fix you right up!” Lily said somewhat cheerfully.

I’m not sure if I should trust her. I mean, what if she doesn’t really plan on fixing my nose at all and is really planning on murdering me and stuffing me down the toilet?

I hesitate while taking a quick glance at the closest toilet. It looks awfully small…

“I’m not going to do anything bad!” Lily said laughing, having noticed my hesitation.

Against my better judgment, I do end up jumping onto the sink and resist the urge to swing my legs like a little kid.

“This won’t hurt at all okay?” Lily said in a reassuring voice before, without even waiting for me to answer, rapping me on the nose with the end of her wand.

“OWW!!!” I exclaimed, before realising that it hadn’t actually hurt at all and the bleeding had stopped.

Lily seemed to know this because all she did was smile and say, “Oh it didn’t actually hurt!”

Well she is quite right but I would like to rap her on her nose and see how much she likes it!

“Here,” Lily said offering me a piece of wet paper towel. Okay so maybe I won’t hit her on the nose since she’s been so nice and all… But the question is why is she being so nice?

“Why are you being so nice?” I asked before I could stop myself.

Lily looked kind of shocked at first before grinning sheepishly. Hmm. How do sheep grin exactly? Oh Merlin, shut up!

“Look Shaylee. I know I haven’t been the nicest person too you,” Lily begun before I interrupted her with my raised eyebrows. “Okay, I haven’t been a nice person too you at all and for that I’m really sorry!”

I was very nearly quite speechless. Was Lily Evans apologising to me for being a mean person? This can’t be right.

“Err… well are you going to say anything?” Lily asked with a worried look on her face.

“Oh sorry. I, umm, forgive you?” I said, having realised I was just standing there looking at Lily with my mouth open. “I’m sorry too.”

Lily looked at my quizzically. “For you know, pushing you into James that day…” I mumbled.

Lily just laughed. “Look it’s okay. I can’t believe I held a grudge against you for that long all because of a silly little thing like that. Friends?” she said offering her hand for me to shake.

I smiled for the first time ever at Lily and took her hand before saying, “Friends!” 

A/N: I’m sorry it’s really short! It’s just it felt like the right time to finish the chapter. Also I’m sorry that this chapter didn’t have much of Remus or the others in it.This chapter was needed! I think.

Thank you for those of you that have reviewed! I love, love, love you! I could love, love, love you too if you reviewed! You know you want to. If not, thanks for reading anyway! (:
