19. If you never try, you'll never know

​James' p.o.v.:

Once we were in Mcgonagall's office, she spoke."I'm getting used to the... mischief of mister Potter and mister Black. But even you, mister Lupin?" Remus looked at his feet when she said that; I couldn't help but smirk. "I really can't see what's so funny about this, mister Potter. You're in the third year. Do you boys even realise that?" She asked and sighed. "Anyway, you are lucky you're having exams, so I won't give you detention until the holidays are over. But all of you will get one month of detention. I'm afraid I also have to take 40 points from Gryffindor" Remus sighed when we heard that. "But professor..." He still tried but McGonagall cut him off. "No buts, mister Lupin. I expected more of your behavior. "But professor, 40 points?" Sirius said before Mcgonagall could cut him off. "Yes, mister Black. 40 points. That is 10 points each. Now, off you go. I bet you still have some studying to do." Mcgonagall said so we went to the Library. "Why didn't you say something? Normally you always complain when you get detention." Remus asked me. "And did it ever work? No, besides, that gives me time to think of an other prank." "Who do you want to mess with? Not Cooper again, right?" asked Peter. "No, I think he learned his lesson. It's been a long time since we had a lovely conversation with Snevilly, don't you think?" I said; Remus shook his head and Sirius smirked. "And I thought you were trying to be in Lily's good books?" replied Remus. "Not really, maybe a little bit, but it's starting to be boring."

"So you admit it?" smirked Peter. "It didn't really work out, did it?" I said; even though I shoudn't have. They all bursted out in laughter. "C'mon, guys. What's so funny about it?" I asked and Sirius layed his arm around my shoulder. "You know, Prongs. There's only one way to find out." I looked at him weirdly. "What? What are you talking about?" They all had that look on their face like they're up to something, but what? "Ask her on a date, ofcourse!" replied Remus. Now it was my turn to laugh. "No way! She knows I... you know... that I like her. And I don't think she likes me." I almost whispered. "And how on earth would you know? You're always challenging her! For once, be nice to her, and she might say yes." I shook my head. "You guys have lost your mind." "Prongs is scared, Prongs is scared." They sang in choir. "You know I can't ask her on a date! She'll just laugh at me. Or even worse..." I said and Sirius rolled his eyes. "Look, I know it's scary. That's how girls are. Well, how being in love is. Girls in general are actually quite nice. And don't tell Amanda I said this, but I have to admit Lily is hot." "To the point, Padfoot." said Remus. "The point is, Prongs, just go for it. If you never try, you'll never know." "Whatever. Anyway, I might should study DADA." I changed the subject. Remus looked at me. "You should know everything about werewolves by now..." "I'm not sure, that's going to be a though one." I laughed and my fiends laughed with me. Then Lily and her friends passed us. Ofcourse Padfoot, Moony and Wormtail were staring at me. Guess I have no choice... I ran after her. "Lily!" She stopped and turned around. The same cold look on her face as always. "Yes, Potter?" "Hey... Uhm... I was wondering if you might could go out on a date with me?" I asked very slow. "Really Potter? Are you asking me on a date?" She said loud and I noticed people surrounded us one by one. "Maybe..." "And when was the last time you bullied Severus?" Lily asked and I rolled my eyes. "A couple of months ago, I guess." "You'll see." Lily said. Why does she have to make this so complicated? "When?" I asked but she walked away. So did everyone else who was watching us; whispering. Sirius layed his arm around my shoulder again. "Not bad, Prongs. She might even say yes."
