The Marauders

This is the story of Harry's parents and how everything fell into place.


14. Pro and Con

Lily's POV

"Lily," Marlee began, "I just can't believe he did that! He just scooped you right up and know."

I laid on my bed while Marlee caught a quaffle repeatedly and paced back and forth. In the time between last class and dinner, we had 20 minutes to kill.

"Yes I very well know. I don't know if I can ever go near a broom stick again now." I sighed.

"Can't say I blame you, Evans." She remarked casually.

I shot straight up and looked at her.

"Really...Evans?" I asked disbelievingly.

"What? I'm trying it out. No good?" She shrugged.

"No good." I laid back down and closed my eyes.

"Why can't it be so simple? James obviously likes me, but so does Sam. Why can't I just pick one?" I balanced my hands back and forth like scales.

"Well," She plopped down onto my bed next to me and held the ball tight in her lap, "we could do a pro-cons chart."

"A what?" I asked sitting up again.

"A pro-cons chart. Here, let me show you." She grabbed a loose leaf of parchment, a quill, and a bottle of ink and drew a line down the center.

She scribbled James' name on the right side and Samuel's on the left.

"Okay, so what's something good about James?" She asked.

"He likes me." I added.

She wrote on his side, 'Pro: likes you'

"That's good, now what is good about Sam?"

"Very good looking." I smirked and she giggled, writing it on his side.

"Now a con about James."

"Rude sometimes."

"Okay, a con about Sam."

"I don't know him that well to give a con." I explained.

"Well, there you have it. You go with Sam." She smiled.

"What?" I asked.

"Because you can't think of a con." She smiled and jumped of the bed.

"You're right!" I exclaimed.

"Oh I know dear."
