I started pacing around the room, wondering where James could be. I looked at the clock. It's half past eight, I thought. Where is he?!
About an hour later, James came tumbling in. His lip was cut up and he had a black eye. I screamed at his appearance.
"Lily..." He murmured in a painful voice. "I think I broke a rib." He started to collapse. I caught him, although he was about a good 50 pounds heavier than me.
"James!" I shrieked. "What happened?!"
"Death Eaters... attacked... the Ministry," He said, gasping in pain as I laid him down on the bed. "We... got most of... the bastards... but Voldemort and... his main cronies... got away."
"Oh, James," I whispered, laying down next to him. "I'll heal you, but then you have to go to sleep." I said it reluctantly, becuase I had a secret to tell him. But, I pulled out my wand and started healing his body silently. Then, I kissed his forehead and got him a potion from the cabinet in the bathroom. "Drink this," I told him, my voice sweet yet strict. He did as he was told. "That is for the rib."
After about 10 minutes, James was out cold. I went into the bathroom again and looked at the little cup that was sitting on the counter. I looked into it - it should've been ready by now - and gasped. It can't be, I thought. I walked out of the room in a haze. The next thing I knew, I was sitting in the kitchen, crying.
I walked down the hall, my hands curled into fists to stop them from shaking. I was scared - I didn't know how he would react if I told him.
It had been about twelve hours since James had come home. I had brought him food and water, but he was asleep at the time.
I hesitated at the door, biting the knuckle of my right knuckle. I heard James move in bed. There was a crack in the door. I looked through it. James was sitting up in bed, reading a book. I took a deep, shaky breath, grabbed the door handle, and entered the room.
James looked up as I entered the room with an arm wrapped around my midsection. "Hey Flower," He said absently as I closed the door and wrapped my other arm around my midsection.
"James,'" I said, my voice rough from crying. He looked up, concerned. "Can I talk to you?"
"Lily," he said, creating room for me beside him. "Of course you can talk to me! I'm your husband, after all!" I crawled into bed next to him and snuggled in next to him.
"So," he said, once I was settled in. "What do you want to talk about?"
I inhaled slowly, preparing for a very nerve wracking moment. "James." I said timidly. "What would you do if I told you that you were to become a father?" He looked at me, confused. "I'd love you and the child more and more everyday. Why do you want to know, Lils?"
I took another deep breath and looked into James' gorgeous, hazel eyes. "James," I said. You're going to be a daddy."
He took a deep breath, turned his head slightly, and stared off into space. "Oh, fuck," he whispered. Tears welled up in my eyes. I tried to fight them, but I failed. They leaked over the sides. A sob escaped my lips. He turned back toward me, alarmed, and his expression softened as soon as he saw me. He wrapped his arms around me.
"James," I said softly, crying into his shoulder. "I'm scared!"
He stroked my messy hair, murmuring things like, "It's going to be ok," and "Shhh... don't cry, Love."
"Do you hate me?" I asked. He looked at me with eyes that said 'you're joking, right?'
"Lily Marie Evans Potter! I feel a lot of things towards you, and absolutely none of them have anything to do with hatred and me being upset with you! You are my life now, and there's nothing you can do about it! So you'll just have to deal with me for the rest of your life! Well, both of your lives," James said. I gave a wet giggle, and proceeded to snog his brains out.
"I love you, Mrs. Potter," James said and leaned forward to kiss my forehead.
"And I love you, Mr. Potter," I said. About five minutes later, James and I fell asleep - James' were arms around me, my hands were on my stomach.
