Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Prologue: Unable to Smile

Lily Evans felt her leotard hug her curves. Her hands were placed in third position and her feet in fourth. She was standing there, prepared to turn and perform a hopefully triple pirouette in front of her audience. The smile of James Potter was on her mind. After all, it was because of him she was standing on this stage. She hated it, but that was the truth.. This is a different James/Lily story with quite a few twists. Hope you like it!
