Lily Evans was standing on platform 9 ¾ waiting for her best friends Alice Stevens, Andromeda (Andie) Black, and Ted Tonks. Suddenly James Potter strode past her. Lily’s heart lept, she had loved the raven haired bespectacled boy for seven years. There was one problem; James dated one girl directly after another. He had one girlfriend one day and another the next. Lily refused to be treated this way. Her heart sank when James did not stop to talk to her.

James kept on walking ignoring Lily. His friend Sirius Black was next to him. “Hey mate, Lily was back there....” “So I am going to give up liking her. She refuses to date me then so be it.” Sirius stared at James “Can you do that? Just stop liking Lily? You love her.” James looked at Sirius. “But she hates me. “ Sirius smiled at his best mate “No I don’t think she dose some how.”

By now they had made it to the train. “Ok I have to go meet the prefects I will see you later.” James gave his stuff to Sirius and headed to the prefects compartment. Lily was sitting in the compartment and looked up from her book. “Hi James how was your summer?” James ignored her. It killed him to do this but she only liked him as a friend. He could not answer her. He would only get rejection for anything he said. So he stayed silent and waited for the prefects.

Lily returned to her book crying silently. It was because of James she wanted to come back to school every year. It was because of him she had learned to love her self. It was him that had always encouraged her dreams. He had once told her that she could do anything she wanted and that it did not matter that she was not wizard born. He was dearer to her then her friends. She did care about her friends but James was different. He had always been able to get her to smile, to laugh; he was he angel from God. He had helped her anytime she needed it. Only when she had her heat broken by others did she go to her friends first. It was because of him she had so much faith in herself. He made most of her dreams come true. Only one was yet to be fulfilled: Dating him.

(For all those times you stood by me
For all the truth that you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For all the wrong that you made right
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
I'll be forever thankful baby
You're the one who held me up
Never let me fall
You're the one who saw me through it all)

(You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me )

James looked up as the prefects walked into the compartment. He gave them the assignments then dismissed them. He then left never glancing at Lily. If he had he would have seen her tear stained face. Lily on the other hand was devastated. He had not even glance at her the whole time he was there. He must have given up on her. She was now sobbing quietly. She stood up and found her friends’ compartment to find all of them asleep. Lily curled up in the window seat next to Alice.

She looked out of the window still crying. About half an hour later she found herself being turned around. Alice was braiding Lily’s hair as Andie was doing Alice’s and Ted still slept. Lily however was still crying about James. Lily had only realized how lucky she had been, she had a boy who had loved her unconditionally. How stupid she had been. James had loved her and she had turned him down time after time. No wonder he had given up on her.

*One week later*

Lily woke up. It was her 18th birthday. She noticed a pile of gifts from her friends and opened them. Alice had gotten her a pure white kitten, Lily named her Snow. Andie and Ted had done a bit of astronomy research and found that there was a constellation (A/n not a real constellation just in the story) that looked like a flower they had registered it in Lily’s name. Her parents had gotten her a car (A/n Yes she learned to drive even though she is a witch. Driving can be useful. ) Her sister Petunia had convinced her husband Vernon to build Lily a house. So she had given it to her. (A/n don’t look shocked people. Petunia in my vision was living on her own at eighteen. So she thought Lily should do the same.) James for once had gotten her nothing as far as she could tell.

Lily went down to the head common room. James was sitting on a couch. He glanced up at Lily and stood up handing Lily a box and hugging her. “Happy birthday, Lily” he whispered in her ear. This was the first thing he had said to her in a week. Lily hugged him back and James pulled away. He looked down at her as if he was trying to read her mind.

“James, why have you ignored me this week?” Lily asked quietly. “Well, I...I tried to forget about you but I realized yesterday that that is impossible.” He was holding Lily’s hand by now. Lily seriously felt like she could fly.

(You gave me wings and made me fly
You touched my hand I could touch the sky
I lost my faith, you gave it back to me
You said no star was out of reach
You stood by me and I stood tall
I had your love I had it all
I'm grateful for each day you gave me
Maybe I don't know that much
But I know this much is true
I was blessed because I was loved by you)

(You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me)

Lily smiled up at James. “I have loved you for seven years James.” He was shocked to say the least “You....WHAT?!?!?!” Lily giggled quietly “It’s true.” “Then why turn me down for six years?” “Simple: the way you date is appalling in my opinion.” She took his other hand at this point. “I don’t see how but I have always loved you. Maybe it is all you have done for me.”

(You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You've been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you)

(You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
You were my eyes when I couldn't see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn't reach
You gave me faith 'coz you believed
I'm everything I am
Because you loved me

I'm everything I am
Because you loved me)

James smiled down at Lily. “So what else did you get for your special day Lily?” “A kitten, a constellation, a car, and a house.” James was still smiling. “Oh and your um box.” James laughed. “Oh and I do have one more thing for you Lily.” Lily smiled “Whats that?” James bent closer to Lily “This” and he did what he had wanted to do for seven years and kissed Lily.
