Little Lily Luna Potter

What happens when Lily is attacked by a werewolf? Scorpius and Lily romance later in the story.


4. Quidditch

The rest of the week passed by smoothly. Today was Saturday and there were Slytherin Quidditch team tryouts for the seekers and the beaters were today, I decided that I would go and try out for Seeker, my dad had always told me that I was a very good seeker, maybe even as good as him at my age. I had checked when the school Quidditch matches were on and none of them were even near a full moon! I might have to miss out on practice a couple of times… but other then that I was completely free!

I was really excited when I walked down to the tryouts, I had had to borrow a school broomstick, but it was all about the skill not how fast I went, right? I just needed to see the snitch before anyone else did and then the seeker place was mine.

When I got to the pitch I noticed that I was the only first year, most of the people who were going to try out were second years and up and mostly boys. I walked to the centre of the pitch where everyone else was; I stood at the edge of the crowd and waited for the tryouts to start.

"Alright!" An angry looking sixth year boy yelled, trying to get some silence.

"Seeker tryouts first, seekers trying out get on your brooms!" he yelled.

Nervously, I mounted my broom and kicked off the ground; about seven other boys from variations of years flew up into the air too.

"When I release the snitch and blow my whistle, it will be your job to find the snitch, who ever finds the snitch t first, is the new seeker." The sixth year captain said and released the snitch, a few seconds later, he released blew his whistle, I started to circle around the pitch, looking for a bit of gold after about a minute, I saw it, I chased after it and no one even noticed me! Maybe they just weren't paying any attention to the first year girl, I sped up a little on my broom and outstretched my arm to catch the snitch, It was so close, just a little further, I grasped it in my hand and caught it, I held it tightly and flew back to the ground, no one seemed to notice me catching it, they all were still looking.

"Potter! What are you doing, get back in the air!" The sixth year said angrily, he obviously thought it was too early to have caught the snitch yet.

I walked over to him, still clutching the snitch. "I-I found the snitch." I said and held out the snitch to him.

His eyes widened as he looked for the snitch, he almost looked… happy. "Well… Well done." He muttered and then beckoned for the other people up in the air to come back down. "We have found ourselves a new seeker!" He declared once all of the people had come down from on their broomsticks. "A new first year seeker." He said, laughing a little and pointing towards me. I blushed lightly and looked at the ground, but I couldn't wipe the smirk off of my face. The people who had been trying out for seeker cursed and walked off of the pitch.

The sixth year turned to me "That was pretty impressive, Potter." He said, smirking at me. "I'm Sam, Sam Flint. My father was a Quidditch captain too; his name was Marcus Flint, played against your father too. Anyway, we practise every Tuesday and Thursday at five o'clock, sometimes on Saturday and Sunday as well when we're coming closer to the game…" Sam paused for a second, just looking at me. "You will need to get a new broomstick and I'll sort out for you to get a Quidditch uniform, alright?"

I nodded my head "Yeah."

"Alright, see you on Tuesday, Potter." Sam said and turned away from me.

I almost skipped back up to the castle, I was so happy.

I walked into the Great hall and went straight to the great hall; Albus, Rose and James were sitting together. "Guys! Guess what?" I asked, grinning brightly.

"What?" Rose asked, smiling back at me.

"I'm on the Slytherin Quidditch team! As a seeker!" I said, grinning but nervously looking at Albus, he was the Gryffindor seeker and then too James, he was one of the Gryffindor beaters.

"That's great Lil's. It will be fun playing against you." Albus said, smiling back at me, he must have noticed my nervous look to him.

James smiled "That's great Lily. Dad will have a field day with this, his son the Gryffindor seeker and his daughter the Slytherin seeker." James said, laughing a little.

Rose laughed too and she stood up to give me a hug. I hugged her back "This is great, I'm so happy for you!" She said.

I grinned "Thanks Rose, I can't wait to tell my parents."

"Looks like you won't have to wait that long, Lil's." Albus said.

I stepped away from Rose "What?" I asked him.

Albus simply nodded his head towards the teachers table, my dad was up there, grinning at us and talking to Professor Longbottom. "Why didn't you tell me?" I asked and ran up to the teachers table; my dad stopped talking to Neville and walked over to me, grinning. "Dad!" I said, grinning back at him.

Harry walked closer to me and gave me a tight hug, even picking me up off of the floor a little. "It's great to see you Lil's." he said and let me down.

"Why didn't you tell me you were here yet?" I shook my head. "Guess what, Dad!" I said.

"What?" he asked.

"I'm on the Slytherin Quidditch team! I just went to the try outs! I caught the snitch before anyone else, can you believe it? I'm a seeker!" I said happily, grinning widely.

Harry looked a little shocked for a second and then his grin came back "Another seeker in the family! Well done Lily. Your mum is going to be so proud." Harry said, and then Draco came up behind him.

"Well, I thought I'd congratulate you on becoming Seeker, Lily." Draco said.

Harry glared at Draco for a second, but Draco didn't seem to notice, Harry was just annoyed that Draco had stopped him from talking to his daughter.

"Oh, Thanks sir." I said, smiling slightly.

Draco nodded his head and walked off again. Harry looked relieved.

"He must be the worst teacher…" Harry said to me, smirking.

"Well, not that bad…" Lily said and laughed a little at Harry's smirk fading from his face.

"Lily, the full moon is in two days." Harry whispered to me, now in a more serious tone.

"You don't actually think I've forgotten, do you?" I asked, I had been feeling terrible lately and was looking very pale, but that hadn't stopped me from wanting to try out for the Quidditch team.

"Yes, well… I have the Wolfsbane potion and you need to take it tonight and then tomorrow morning, alright? You can come to my office at five o'clock tomorrow and you will be able to change there." Harry said and handed me a small vile of wolfsbane potion.

"Thanks." I muttered. I just didn't like talking about the full moon and transforming into a werewolf. "See you later Dad. Oh! And you need to get me a new broomstick!" I said, giving him a half-smile,

"I'll order the best one they have." Harry said, smiling back at me.
