I was waiting all my life to know you
All about you
And now I'm staring in your eyes ocean blue,
I'm all about you
And in our minds it comes so easily
But there's a feeling coming over me
I wanna show you but there's no way we can really be free
Everybody's watching
Wouldn't it be good if we could be together

I waltzed through the Forbidden Forest, spinning in circles of pure joy, on the surprisingly chilly June evening. The sun had been tucked away under the mountains about three hours ago. It was June 14, in fact. And why was I so giddy?

James had asked me to marry him. And I said yes.

I skipped over the bracken that was growing along the bottoms of the trees. I smiled to myself, thinking about how there would be a little Potter running around in these woods in at least 12 years. I sighed, content.

I saw a magnificent stag running past me. It stopped for a second, looked at me, and shook itself. Then it continued running.

Hmm..., I thought. I'm an registered Animagus. Maybe I should transform, so the Centaurs don't kill me.

I quickly morphed into the beautiful doe that I would sometimes run through the forest as.

Take me away
Take me far away from here
I will run with you
Don't be afraid
Navigate and I will steer into the sun
We will Run

The second after I transformed, I saw the stag come prancing back, this time with a black dog and a rat. He looked at me, confused. I shook my head.

Silly stag.

I trotted in between them, huffing a little as they all stared after me.

I was five feet away when I heard the voices.

"She was right here, Sirius! I swear, on my mother fucking uncle's bride to be, she was standing right where the doe had just been standing!"

I turned to see James, Sirius, and Peter al standing where the stag, dog, and rat had been standing.

Wait a minute... their illegal Animagi! Oh, SO not good!

I pranced back to them, tilting my head to the side. They didn't even notice my reappearance. I decided to surprise them. I changed back into my human form.

"When were you going to tell me that you were illegal Animagi, boys?" They jumped at the sound of my voice.

"Lily! Where did you come from?!" James asked startled. I rolled my eyes.

"You're not the only animals at school, you know."

I try to remember when I was just a child
In my roo-oom
And my imagination used to run wild
But I never kne-ew
That nothing's ever as it seems to be
When a dream collides with the reality
It should be easy when two people love eachother truly
Everybody's talking
Wouldn't it be good if they would understand us

"Huh?" The three boys had looks of confusion on their faces.

"Oi vey!" I breathed, smacking my forehead. I then proceeded to turn back into the doe. Realization dawned on James' and Peter's faces. Sirius just jumped ten feet. I turned back.

"THat makes so much sense now," James said. He was smiling. "By the way, your ring leaves a white band around your ankle. It's quite attractive." I blushed deeply. He started tickling me. We fell over.

"James!" I said, attempting to breathe. "S-s-stop! I c-c-can't-t-t b-breathe!" He stopped immediately. After I had caught my breath, he planted a kiss on my forehead. We gazed into each other's eyes. His hazels were filled with such love. I put my hand on his cheek.

"Ahem!" We looked up at Sirius, who was tapping his watch. James sighed, looking resigned. He looked away for a second.

"Go help Remus," I said. They looked at me, stunned.

Take me away
Take me far away from here
I will run with you
Don't be afraid
Navigate and I will steer into the sun
We will Run

"I've known since first year, when Snivelly-" James laughed at the use of the name "- suddenly became obsessed with you guys. I don't know why, but he was just... frequently talking about lycanthropy, and all this bullshit."

"Well, you can join us, if you want," Peter offered. James gave a livid at Peter.

"Never say those words aga- Lily, what do you think you're doing?!" But it was too late. I had already morphed into my doe form. James sighed.

"Lily, change back, now." I shook my head. He took a step towards me. And I bolted. I ran deeper and deeper into the woods. I loved the feeling of wind on my face. I eventually got thirsty. I found a lake to stop and take a drink at. The stag came and stopped beside me. I looked into his gorgeous, hazel eyes. I nuzzled up against him. We kept nuzzling each other. Until we heard growling behind us. We turned to see a gigantic werewolf standing ten feet above our heads.

We will run
Whoa, oh
We will run
Oh, yeah....
Wouldn't it be good if they would understand us
Wouldn't it be good if we could be together
Take me away

Remus... I thought. I started to slowly back away while James started to slowly approach him. He turned his head toward me and motioned for me to leave. I obliged. I backed off into the forest and then bolted as soon as I was out of sight. I ran through the woods, looking for the exit. I ran into centaurs, who didn't recognize me as a human, thankfully. As soon as they were gone, I ran forward. I finally reached the edge of the forest. I changed back into a human and ran until I was in the Heads' Dorms. I plopped down on the couch and called for our personal house elf, Poppy. She was a pregnant elf who would give birth soon.

When Poppy appeared in the room, she was screaming in pain.

"Poppy! The baby is coming! Lie down!" Poppy did exactly as she was told. And within fifteen minutes, I was holding a tiny, male house elf. I had performed the birth flawlessly. I handed the baby over to Poppy.

"Dobby," she said, her breath coming in short gasps. Then, handing the baby back to me, she died, right before my eyes.

Take me away
Take me far away from here
I will run with you
Don't be afraid
Navigate and I will steer to the sun
We will Run
I will run
I will run with you wherever you go
Don't be afraid
Lets run away and I will steer into the sun
We will run

An hour later, James came strolling in. He saw me sitting in the rocking chair for the first time. He walked over to me and saw that I had a bundle in my arms and tears in my eyes.

"Poppy died after giving birth to Dobby." I said, handing James the tiny infant. He looked at it, and looked at me. And then he kissed me on the forehead again.

I conjured up a crib, James placed Dobby in there, and we wound up falling asleep in each others arms on the couch.
