(3) Lily read the note and thought. James was always bullying Snape, and she didn't approve of that. But James seemed so lovestruck and sweet towards her. "Maybe there's a possibility that James has feelings!"lily's friends laughed. Lily didn't respond. She had to make a choice. Then, Lily knew.

(8) "Oh, we were just..." Lilly started. "Uh, studying! Yeah! I have a potions test tomorrow and I needed Lilly to help me. I had a meeting planned with her earlier but it was cancelled because Quiditch was scheduled for the same time." (Minnie Mouse, Age 13 to 18, 1/11/2007 6:13:38 PM, Howdidithappen)

(9) McGonagall raised her eyebrows skeptically. "James, this is expected of you. But Lilly, I can hardly believe my most prized studet would stand there and lie right to my face." Lilly hung her head gultily. "To teach you both some respect you will each have two weeks of detentions with me." James smirked, now he was going to have even more time to spend with Lilly.

(10) That's exactly what happened. Through the hours that Lilly and James spent together cleaning the trophy room and helping the house elves they developed a special bond. One that no one, not even Snape could break. However, James's friends didn't like the idea of having a girl in their group. So James and Lilly were forced to keep their romance a secret. They lived out the rest of their school days hating each other by day, and meeting for romantic sessions at night. Eventually James could hide his love from the world any more and asked Lilly to be his wife. The wedding was grand, and they were blessed with a bautiful boy named Harry Potter...
