Lily entered "Lily, please sit down." Lily sat down. "Today, I want you to work on defending yourself without killing anyone, at least legally" Lily knew she should stand up. "First we will talk out what spells to use, then use emotion, then do them." Lily knew that Dumbledore must have thought this was important. She was going to be of age soon, and killing another person would probably not go down well with the ministry, even if in self defense.
"The best first move is disarming" Lily said. "Expelliramus"
"Now I'm wandless, so what do you do?'
"Something that will get you on the ground, Petrificus Totalus"
"Let's just pretend I'm now on the ground unable to move my arms and legs"
"If there were more people, I would have to disarm all of them, and then get them on the ground"
"Yes, very good"
They practiced doing it a few times to make that her instinct. "Next, I have to tell you something, I have not told Harry yet, and I do not wish to ruin your relationship, but I believe i have to ask, the rest of the lesson is between us, until I tell him, you will be in the lesson when I tell him though." Lily didnt understand why couldn't just tell her then. "On the prophecy, it says 'one cannot live while the other survives, this mean,"
"One of them has to kill the other" Lily finished for him
"Yes, and I know that you will want to help Harry as much as you can"
"Yes, er, Professor, not that I don't have faith in Harry, but do you think he can really defeat Voldemort? I'm just worried about him, death eaters have no problem to kill every one who stands in the way. Harry might not need me, but he does need love,"
"Oh, on the contrary, Lily, to Harry you are love. He needs you to win this. That's why you make sure you never get killed, you don't avoid getting killed just to live, you do it so you can save your friends, who I believe, are more to you then friends"
"My mom told me that I should die in love, die because I want to, not die in reluctance, and I agree"
"Yes, I do believe dying in love is important, love is more powerful than hate, Harry, has people who want to help him, and love him, Voldemort, only has people who hate Harry"
"Yes, sir, if I knew something, and I think I maybe should tell you, do you think I should?"
"I trust your judgement"
McGonagal ran in. "Professor Dumbledore, Draco Malfoy has just cruciatus cursed a first year, he also cursed Ms. Smith earlier today. What should I do?"
"Send him up, I will talk to him, Lily you can return to your dorm, this Saturday at eight, you and Harry will have a lesson."
Lily returned to the common room to find Kendra laying on the ground and Cormac McLaggen smirking
