Maybe you will always be
Just a little out of reach (X)
James just shook his head and sighed, while Sirius let out a small chuckle. “I’m afraid my dear friend Prongs’ days of picking on ickle firsties are over, Lily.” He placed a hand over his heart and wiped an imaginary tear from his eye before he continued. “In case you haven’t noticed, he’s been made Head Boy.” He pointed to the gleaming badge on the front of James’ robes that she had not seen until now. Instantly, her face fell. So Marlene hadn’t been kidding. Potter had really been made Head Boy and now she was going to have to work with him for an entire year. The thought alone made her wrinkle her nose in displeasure.
“Well, don’t look too excited,” James scoffed.
Lily shot him a glare. “Why in Merlin’s name would I be excited about it, Potter?”
“Because, Evans, it’s not everyday that you get to be partnered up with the most dashing man that Gryffindor has ever seen.”
Sirius made a noise of protest. “I’d like to challenge that statement!”
“Quiet, Padfoot. It’s not arguable,” James replied, before turning his attention back to Lily, who was staring at him with a look of disgust. Sirius folded his arms across his chest and Lily swore he might have been pouting.
“Oh, please. I could name a million other Gryffindor boys that are way ahead of you on that list.”
“But I’m at least on your list, right?” James asked with a cocky smile. If she wasn’t so intent on not screwing up her first day as acting Head Girl, she would have hexed him right then and there.
