3 Regretable Decisions

When a grand bussiness opportunity arouse for Lily Evans, she jumped at the chance to head the Auror Head Quaters in America, something she'd alway wanted, but maybe thats not the whole story, maybe the reason she left had more to do with a certain raven haired boy that broke her heart and less to do with her job. When her best friend gets sick though, she rushes back to England, to be there for her friends and to confront James Potter once and for all.
