Behind the Masks

Lily Potter wasn't actually in love with James. In fact, she wanted Voldemort, and they were planning to run away together.


1. Death

"Darling, I know it's scary but the best thing we can do right now is to stay calm and stay hidden. We need to make sure that our little boy stays safe." James said to me.

I looked over at my little boy Harry, fast asleep in his cot. He always looked so adorable like this and it made my heart melt a little bit. It made what was about to happen a lot harder to handle. 

You see, I hated being married to James. I never one wanted to be married to him, but I had to keep up an appearance. No one could know the truth. No one could know that I was hopelessly in love with Mr Tom Marvolo Riddle.

Lily Potter!? In love with Voldemort!? Well that was something that people wouldn't expect. You're probably wondering how I even know him. Well, you all think that Severus Snape is in love with me. Unfortunately, that isn't true. We're the best of friends though, and it was him who introduced me to Tom.

From the moment we met, me and Tom hit it off. I knew from the very first moment our eyes met that Tom was the one person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. And tonight, we were going to make this dream a reality. Tonight was the night that James was going to die. 

I was impatiently waiting for the moment that Tom would barge through the door and perform that one deadly spell. I just wanted this day to be over with already.

And I didn't have to wait for long. Suddenly, I saw Tom burst through the door and point his wand at James. He muttered something under his breath, and all of a sudden James was bound with ropes.

"Long time no see, James Potter." Tom spat at him. "You thought you were safe! Now look, there's nothing you can do! You're about to meet your end...!"

James looked at me, puzzled. He was obviously wondering how I could remain calm in the presence of Tom Riddle. He was obviously wondering why I wasn't tied up also. And why I was making my way over to him, a big grin on my face. 

I bent down so I was face to face with him where he sat on the floor.

"You are such a fool James Potter." I laughed in his face. "And now you're meeting your end." 

"W...What are you talking about Lils?" James stuttered.

"I never loved you James. I've always wanted Tom."

I walked over to Tom, and started to kiss him passionately, all whilst James was watching

All of a sudden, Tom pulled away and pointed his wand at James. The ropes fell away from him and James tried to stand up and reach for his wand. However, with a yell of "Avada Kedavra!" and a flash of green light, James slumped on the floor - dead.

I stood back, while Tom made his way over to Harry, who was now crying uncontrollably in his cot. The same thing happened. The yell of the incantation, the flash of green light but this time nothing happened. Harry was still alive, but the building began to rumble, as the building started to fall down. 

Tom came running over to me and grabbed my hand.

"B...But Harry... Harry is still alive!" I said, grabbing my own wand and trying to head towards Harry. Tom held me back, and kissed my forehead. 

"Don't worry about Harry. He's only a baby. He can't do anything. But we need to get out of here. The Ministry will be here any second, and the building is starting to collapse. We need to keep you safe."

With that, we apparated as the building fell around us.
