DISCLAIMER – I am Not J.K. Rowling *or* Shania Twain, so therefore, I own nothing. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* “Lily take Harry and go! It’s him” James yelled, “Go! Run! I’ll hold him off!” She didn’t want to leave him to fight alone, but he was right, she had to get Harry out. She was halfway up the stairs when she heard a cold voice hiss, “Avada Kedavra”. She turned around to see her husband fall to the ground, dead. Blinded by tears, she sprinted the rest of the way to the nursery and slammed the door behind her. She grabbed Harry and held him to her chest thinking, ‘James is dead, oh God no, James is dead…’ when, with a loud “Bang!” the nursery door was blown off it’s hinges. When the smoke cleared she saw Voldemort standing in the doorway, his wand pointed at her. She desperately tried to shield Harry from him while crying, “Not Harry, not Harry, please not Harry!” “Stand aside, you silly girl…stand aside now…” “Not Harry, please no, take me, kill me instead…” She begged He just stood there and laughed harshly. “Not Harry! Please…have mercy…have mercy…” She sobbed as she did her best to hide her child from that monster. “Avada Kedavra” He said triumphantly ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In your arms I can still feel the way you want me when you hold me I can still hear the words you whispered when you told me I can stay right here forever in your arms ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Evans, will you go out with me?” A seventh year James Potter asked her “For the last time, no Potter!” was her response “Why Evans, why won’t you give me a chance?” “I thought we’d already been over this Potter,” She said impatiently, “As I said to you in 5th year, you are an arrogant bullying toerag” “Lily-” He said angrily, “I’ve changed since 5th year, and it seems like everyone’s noticed but you” before turning to walk away. The truth was she had noticed, and she liked the change. He was no longer the boy who hexed people for the fun of it, but a man, and a handsome one at that. She just didn’t know how to react to his drastic change, and she only had one question for him. “Why?” She asked “What?” He turned around to look at her, his look of anger replaced with one of confusion. “Why, why did you change?” she asked “For you” was the only response she got before he turned his back to her and walked away. Her heart softened for him at that moment, and she couldn’t believe it but she was actually falling for him. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ And there ain't no way-- I'm letting you go now And there ain't no way-- and there ain't no how I'll never see that day.... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Dance with me, Lily?” He asked her. She was at the Hogwarts Christmas Ball with her boyfriend, James, and he had just asked her to dance. “Sure-” The word had barely made it out of her mouth before he grabbed her had and started pulling her toward the dance floor. They started dancing to “Just the way you are” by Billy Joel (AN: Sorry Muggle song, I know, but it was popular then…) When the song ended, James pulled her closer and whispered, “I love you” in her ear. It sent chills down her spine and she knew, at that moment, that she loved him too. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 'Cause I'm keeping you forever and for always We will be together all of our days Wanna wake up every morning to your sweet face--always In your heart-- I can still hear a beat for every time you kiss me And when we're apart I know how much you miss me I can feel your love for me in your heart ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “I love you more than I’ve ever loved anything in my entire life and I want to spent forever with you-” he took a deep breath before finishing, “Lily Evans, will you marry me?” She sat there shocked for a moment before saying, “Yes James, of course I’ll marry you! I love you too.” And pulling him into a deep, passionate kiss. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ And there ain't no way-- I'm lettin' you go now and there ain't now way-- and there ain't no how I'll never see that day.... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “You were once a dream, then you became a desire, I prayed for you before I knew you, and now you are the woman I never thought existed, the woman who holds my heart in the palms of her hands. My love for you grew from the depths of my soul; instilled there by God's will, today I, James Harold Potter, take you, Lily Marie Evans, as my wife. I vow to honor you as God has commanded, through all of the blessings and trials in life, in both good and bad, in sickness and in health, in joy and in sorrow, as my best friend, my lover, my soul mate. I vow to uphold the integrity of the love that is of God the Father, His son Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and the Holy Spirit. To be a leader spiritually, mentally, and physically I give myself in whole to you as your husband, and as your best friend. I vow to listen you and to keep an open mind, sacrificing my pride to be your strength, your joy, and your breath. My heart sings of loves overflowing joy on this day, as we bind our souls together in Holy Matrimony, for all eternity under God's divine will. I love you Lily.” He said, while slipping the wedding ring on her finger. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ‘Cause I’m keeping you forever and for always We will be together all of our days, Wanna wake up every morning to your sweet face—always ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “James, I’m pregnant”, She said. He stared at her stunned for a moment before her statement actually sunk in. "I'm going to be a father?" he asked, looking like christmas had come early. She nodded. "I'm going to be a father!" he yelled happily, picking her up in a giant bear hug and twirling her around. He kissed her forehead and her stomach, grinning like an idiot. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In your eyes I can still see the look of the one who really loves me The one who wouldn't put anything else in the world above me I can still see love for me in your eyes ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Lily, please don’t be mad…” “How could I not be mad?! My Husband leaving to go fight Voldemort, the darkest wizard in history! James, you could be killed!” she yelled, “What about our baby, James? I don’t want him to grow up without a father! I don't wanna lose you.” “I’ll be fine”, He said “But James-” She started again, but he pressed a finger to her lips and said, “Lily, I have to do this, and the main reasons are you and our baby. I don’t want him to have to grow up in a world full of darkness, Lily, and you don’t either. I have to do this” he repeated a determined look in his eye. She knew he was right, but she still didn’t want him to go. James was a great Auror, but she, along with everyone else in the wizarding world, had heard of the terrible things Voldemort had done to those that opposed him. She just didn’t want James to have the same fate as them. “Ok” she said after much deliberation, “but be careful, and come back in one piece okay?” She tried to make the last part sound like a joke but deep down she knew she meant it. “I will” he said confidently, “And remember love, no matter what happens, I’ll always love you” She felt a single tear roll slowly down her cheek as he walked out the door. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ And there ain't no way— I'm lettin' you go now And there ain't no way-- and there ain't no how I'll never see that day.... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Congratulations, it’s a boy!” The nurse said while handing them their baby. “Look, Lily, he’s got your eyes!” James said happily. “Yeah, and your black hair!” she replied, “What do you think we should name him?” “I was thinking Harry, Harry James Potter” he started, “What do you think?” “I think that’s a great name” she said, truely happy with his choice. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ‘Cause I’m keeping you forever and for always We will be together all of our days, Wanna wake up every morning to your sweet face—always ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “He’s going to be a seeker, just like his dad” James said, amused, as they watched Harry staring intently at James’ snitch while it flew around the room. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I'm keeping you forever and for always ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The burst of green light hit her straight in the chest, and her lifeless body crumpled to the floor. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A/N- I just wanted to say thanks to all my reviewers!
