Lily POV



I woke up and yawned. It felt odd that this would be the last time I slept in the girls dormitory. I turned and watched Loretta's chest rising and falling peacefully. I looked at everything in the girls dormitory I could lay my eyes on. I wanted to memorize it completely, like a picture I could look back on many years later. I walked into the bathroom and tried to memorize it while taking my shower.

*******************************************************************

I walked downstairs dressed and ready for breakfast a hour later (I take a while to get ready) and saw James talking to Sirius about something.

"...Your baby will probably be really famous Prongs, with your good looks everyone will want a piece of him." Sirius was saying.

"No, he'll be famous for killing Voldemort and saving all wizard kind." James said sarcastically.

I snorted. Yeah right, like THAT would ever happen. (A/N: lolz)

Sirius looked around at the sound of a snort. "Oh hey, what's up hot stuff?" he said once he spotted me, wiggiling his eyebrows.

James looked at him crossly. "Pay no attention to the annoying man next to me, so, hows it goin' Lily?" he said looking at me.

"Okay I guess, I was just going to go down for breakfast." I said casually.

"Cool. Hey, while we're on the topic of babies, what would you name yours?" asked James curiously, taking a drink from the glass of water he had in his hand.

"Harry." I said immediantly, I had always loved that name.

James choked on the water he was drinking and Sirius started to thump him on the back.

"What, I like that name!" I said defencivly.

"Lily, th-thats my middle name!" James spluttered.

"Oh...erm...well then....that's...um..." I said going red.

There was a long silence broken only when five minutes later Sirius said "Awkward." (A/N: If any of you have seen hoodwinked, Sirius sounded just like the pelican.)

James threw a pillow at him.

************************************************************

"Hey Lily!" James called as Loretta, Layla and I were walking out the portrait hole.

"Yeah?"

"Could I walk with you?"

"Sure." I said and we walked out together.

"Lily" he whispered in my ear as we were walking.

"Yes?" I breathed back.

"Did you tell them the secret about the prank?" he said fearfully.

"No, why did you think I would? I'm very thrustworthy!"

"Well, I know, but you're really close to your friends, and I know that you HATE me, so..." he looked sad when he said it.

I put a hand on his forarm.

"James, I don't hate you." I said, smiling and looking up at him.

"You don't?" He said hopefully.

"No!" I said. "I'm sorry you ever thought I did. I just used to...strongly dislike you."

"You mean you don't now?"

"No, now we can be considered friends." I reasuringly.

"Good." he chuckled. "See ya around Lily!" he said, giving my hand a gentle squeze and then walking over to where Sirius was sitting.

As I walked over to where Layla and Loretta sat I could still feel my hand burning from James' touch. I tried to convince myself that it was just because he squeezed it hard, but deep down I knew that wasn't true.

*************************************************************
James POV



"So, what do we have today Padfoot?" I asked.

"Hmm...lets see...Transfiguration, Potions, double Charms, Divination, and History of Magic." Sirius read off the list.

"Great, Divination. Professor Shinastra will be horrible, this is our last year at hogwarts remember? So somebody has to die by the end of the year."

"Ha ha...hey, wanna play a prank on the Slytherins (*cough* Snivellus *cough*) in Divination? I've got the perfect spell..."

********************************************************************

Lily POV



With double charms over I walked up to the Divination tower feeling weary. What if she picked me to die this year? I mean, it's not like I would believe that I was going to die, but always getting those teary eyes when ever the professor would look at me would be so embarassing...

When I climbed up the ladder Sirius and James were conversing in low voices and stopped aruptly when the professor entered the room.

"Today class we will be working on crystal ball gazing. please partner up and try your hardest to look into the beyond, and see with your inner eye..." she said

She then began to walk around the class asking people what they could see.

After awhile she reached James and Sirius.

"You, my dear boys, what do you see?"

"The reflection of a ugly old bat with giant speccticals and a mole on her nose." whispered James. (I was in th table next to him so I could hear him.)

I stuffed my fist into my mouth to keep from laughing.

"What was that dear?"

"Uh, I see alot of fog."

"That fog is what is inside your mind, you should broaden it..." she said and then walked over to the next person which happened to be Snape.

"And what do you see my dear?"

James pointed his wand at Snape's crystal ball and muttered a spell.

"Well I haven't seen anything yet but- oh!" he said, he looked immensly proud of himself as he looked into the crystal ball.

"I see a dark shape...human like...wait...it's me!... and i'm shaking...what the?...i'm being throttled...by..."

He then turned red and closed his mouth.

"Yes?" Prompted professor Shinastra.

"A teddy bear." he mumbled.

The entire class burst out laughing, James and Sirius laughing the hardest.

"A teddy bear?" said professor Shinastra, her voice shaking. She was obviosly trying not to laugh.

Snape turned red and glared at her furiously.

Five minutes later the professor turned to the class gavely. Here we go.

"I am sorry to tell you this, but one of you will pass away this year, I have not seen who yet, but be weary, it could be any of you."

Her eyes then swept the class and I wouldn't be surprised if she was thinking 'eenie meenie minie moe' in her head.

Her sad eyes then fell on me and I gulped.

She opened her mouth and-

"Don't even think about it." growled a voice, it was James.

"Don't you even dare make the perdiction that was about to come out of your mouth. As long as I am alive, there is NO WAY that Lily could die. Now I suggest you stop making stupid proficies and start teaching us something useful." he said in a dangerously low and deadly voice.

I felt a giant rush of gratitude toward James. Or was it affection?

Professor Shinastra looked completely abashed and turned to someone else instead.

I was going to have to thank James after class.

************************************************************

"James! Hey! James! Wait up!" I called.

"Hey Lily. Whats up?"

"Erm...about what you said back there...thanks."

"You don't have to thank me." he put a hand on my cheek and stroked it with his thumb. "I was being truthful. There really is no way I would let anyone hurt you."

I hugged him.

"Thanks."  I said into his chest.

***************************************************************

"Bye you guys!" I said, hugging Lalya and Loretta seperately. It was time for me to move out of the girls dorm and into the heads dorm. I was glad I was still allowed to visit. "You can come and visit me anytime you want, and if you want me to i'll visit you guys here."

"Bye Lily, we'll se you tommorow, ok?" said Loretta, breaking away from me.

"Yeah. I'll show you guys the heads dorm tommorow." I said looking at them smiling. "Oh! Gotta go! After dinner I have to meet James and walk to the head dorm with him!"

**************************************************************

That night after dinner me and James walked to the heads dorm excitedly. When we got the the dorm I held my breath as he said the password. I gasped. It was wonderful.

There was a couch and two really comfortable looking sqaushy chairs by the roaring fire. on the side of the room was a small dining table with the enchanted menus I saw dumbledore use in our third year during the yule ball. All of the walls were marble, unlike the stone in the Griffindor common room. at the end of the room I saw two beautiful doorways marked 'Head Boy' and "Head Girl'. James likewise looked stunned.

"Wow..." I said weakly.

"This is amazing..." said James.

"Oh my gosh I can't wait to see our rooms!" I suddenly exclaimed.

Me and james took one look at each other, and then ran as fast as we could to our rooms.

As soon as I opened my door I gasped again.

It looked almost just like the girls dorms, except it also had marble walls, and instead of a bunch of four posters, a giant queen sized bed with lily patterned covers was there. I lay down on my queen sized bed and looked around, stunned. This must have been Dumbledore's doing. He would have known I would be girls-dorm-sick, and what else would explain the lily patterned covers?

I got under the covers and lay down, suddenly feeling sleepy. and as I smiled into my pillow and drifted off to sleep, I thought that becoming head girl had been worth it just for this.

A/N: Sorry if anything is spelled wrong, I don't have spell check! Hope you liked the new chapter!
