The Best

I will upload a small and fluff story. Every day a new short chapter. Have fun.

Hair

“She has the best hair!” James claimed on their third day in Hogwarts. “It’s so bright and red! Like a signal fire!”
Peter looked relieved and Sirius nodded, while Remus mumbled an agreement. The four eleven year old boys were lost. Truly, horrible lost in the castle. They had been on the way to the next class, when a stair changed direction and then they were wandering around the corridors in hope to find anything or anyone that could lead the way. Peter had tears in his eyes and James felt nearly as frustrated.

But then, he had caught a glimpse of Lily Evans’ red hair around a corner. The boys did not know all of their classmates yet, but James recognized the fiery red hair from his fellow Gryffindor. He had poked Sirius in the ribs and whispered to him. All four of them ran to the corner where he had seen her, just in time to see her turn another corner. They followed her in this fashion until they reached the potions classroom, where James then announced his admiration for her hair. Her hair was not only bright and red, but shiny and wavy and looked very soft.

Later that day, he found out that trying to touch that hair with jam-sticky hands was considered pulling hair.

James was sure of it. Lily Evans had the best hair.

Re: The Best

Eyes

"She has the best eyes." James thought when he stared spellbound at her. She had her hands in her hips and glared up at him. He and Sirius had only played a small prank on Snivellus and she had stormed over to shout at them. They had just transformed the snake on his crest into a floppy worm, because really it was less embarrassing. They were practically doing him a favour.

Her eyes were very green and when she was angry they were dancing. The flush on her face made them stand out even more. Their corners were pulled up slightly like a cat. They were big and for some reason her eyelashes weren't red like her hair, but dark and long.

She stared at him, as if she expected him to say something. Had she asked him something?

"Eh what?" He wanted to answer her. He really wanted to. He just needed to know the question.

"Urrg." She groaned and rolled her eyes. Even while doing this they looked pretty.

She turned around to walk away from him and James felt he lost something when her eyes were no longer on him. She grabbed Snivillus' arm and pulled him with her.

"Hey Evans!" He shouted after her. She looked over her shoulder and her green eyes were on him again. He didn't know what to say now. She raised her eyebrows at him. He had to say something! "Don't you know that you will get bitten when you hang out with snakes?"

It looked like her green eyes caught fire, before she stormed away.

He would continue to do many stupid things to have her eyes back on him. But it was worth it.

James was sure of it. Lily Evans had the best eyes.

Re: The Best

Brain

"Well, of course Evans gets it. She has the best brain!" James shouted out loud in the middle of charms.

They were in the middle of a difficult lesson that left everybody clueless. Everyone, but Lily Evans. Professor Flitwick had clapped in delight when he saw her execute the charm perfectly. Everybody looked at her and James was in awe with her. He meant his words, but then everybody started to laugh and mock her and Lily turned red with humiliation. That wasn't what he wanted. Flitwick hushed everybody up again and praised Lily for her accomplishments. As he should. As anyone should.

Lily was top in her classes not only in charms, but potion and herbology as well and she was really good in everything else. She even was able to pay attention in history! And anybody who could manage that must have a huge brain, if you ask James, who had fallen asleep in every single history class until now. Even outside of class she was always very clever. She read mystery books all the time and she loved solving riddles. James even heard rumors that Lily would sometimes visit the Ravenclaw tower to study with a friend there. And you had to be really clever to get in there. He and Sirius once tried, but they didn't know that to say when they were asked a riddle and ran away again.

James was sure of it. Lily Evans had the best brain.



Thank you for the feedback.

Re: The Best

Smile

She had the best smiles. That was all he thought when he ran into a wall. It knocked him on his ass, but it couldn't disperse the grin that stretched his face. Today was a great day. It was the first game of the session and his first game on the team. They won! And he had scored FIVE goals!

And then Lily smiled at him and congratulated him. Her smile was the best. Her teeth scratched over her low lip, before her mouth stretched into a smile and showed off her a bit of her pearly white teeth. It made him feel like flying again and like scoring goals and like the warmth of a fireplace and like pillow fights with his friends and like hot coca from his mum, all wrapped together.

James didn't know what to say and stared at her for a moment. That was when he ran into the wall. Lily looked at him shocked and surprised.

"Are you ok?" She looked down at him with concern, but he only grinned back.

"Perfect! Never been better." He had a goofy grin on his face and it made her smile again. James Potter was a twelve year old in his second year at Hogwarts and he didn't understand what he felt.

But James would swear for years that no smile could ever be as great as Lily's. That opinion only changed when he first saw Harry's toothless smile. But until then

James was sure of it. Lily Evans had the best smile.

Re: The Best

Notes

Lily Evans had the best notes. James knew this, because she had lent them to Remus when he was 'sick.' It was unfair that Remus hoarded them and didn't share, so James nicked them from time to time. Everything was on the notes; not only what the professors said, but explanations from other sources and even the names and pages from books to read more in clear handwriting. It was nearly the end of their second year and soon they would have to take their exams. Remus should really share the best notes with the rest of them.

"James! Give them back!" Remus always sounded a bit panicked when he noticed the notes Lily gave him were missing. He wasn't nearly as worried about his own notes, but his own notes weren't the best notes. Lily's were.

He snatched them back and looked through them to check that they were alright.

Sirius was laughing his ass off because of them. "Remy-boy, why do you even care so much about the notes? We all know you have them memorized."

Remus got very quiet and looked down on his notes, Lily's notes. Then he whispered. "She knows, about, you know, me." Sirius stopped laughing and sat up in his armchair for once. James' eyes turned big. They had only found out about Remus' 'problem' this year.

"How?" James asked back.

Remus shrugged. "She said because she's muggleborn." That didn't make any sense to James. "She said that muggle doesn't know a lot about magic, but they know about ghosts, unicorns, dragons, vampires and werewolves…" At the last word Remus voice got even quieter than before.

"And she didn't have a problem with it?" James asked in awe.

"She said when she found out, she ran to McGonagall and had a long talk with her and in the end decided to give me her notes each month." Remus was beaming with happiness when he told them that. The same way he had when they told him, that they would stay his friends.

"That's pretty nice of her." Sirius said. Sirius had never paid her any mind, but now he looked thoughtful.

Remus nodded. "She said that 'we pariahs of the magical world should stick together'. Like being muggleborn is the same as being like me, but she just shrugged and said that 'there are some bigot people that didn't want us here. So we should stick up for each other.'"

"Wow." Lily Evans was really something else. James wasn't sure what she was, but it was good. It was all very confusing. All this made James feel confusing things. He was kind of proud of her, and grateful that she made Remus so happy. But there was some strange feeling as well, when he watched how careful Remus put her notes away, it made him want to steal them again.

James was sure of one thing. Lily Evans had the best notes.

Re: The Best

Hand

She had the best hands. They were small, but it was fine because that meant that he could hold them in his. Her hands were soft as well. James had shaken many hands before, but none was as soft as Lily's. How did he know that? Because he was holding her hand right now. Kind of…

It was a prank. He glued his hand to her hand with Superduper Stickystuck glue that he and Sirius got from Zonko last weekend, and no matter how much she pulled and shouted, she couldn't get away from him. James couldn't remember why he thought this would be a good idea. Sirius had suggested gluing her to Snivellus, but he didn't like that idea.

Now, he had been glued to her hand for the last half hour. Lily had shouted at him and tried to go to Madam Pomfrey, but James was stronger and heavier and would drag her around instead. They finally found a compromise that they would look for a solution themselves in the library. She glared at him the whole way and shook with anger when Madam Pince gave them a pointy look at their joined hands.

"The Library is for studying and reading. Nothing else." She reminded them in her whispered voice.

"Of course Madam Pince." Her fingernails dug into his hand for a moment. James gave a small painful noise for him and Lily looked over to him in surprise and immediately stopped. She didn't say anything more and just pulled him towards the household spell books.

James let her because really there can't be many people in their class that know more about the library than Lily, a part of Remus and maybe all of Ravenclaw, he added after walking past at least four Ravenclaws for every student from another house.

In front of the bookshelf Lily pulled out books, which wasn't so easy with only one hand as her growl in his direction reminded him, opened them, read through the index and either pushed them back into their place or gave them to James to carry. He was already carrying five and Lily placed another one on top. The books started to get heavy. Not that he would tell that to Lily or anything.

Finally she dragged him over to one of the tables and ordered him to put the books down. He got a glare from her and a table of Ravenclaws when he did it too loudly. He only had one hand either. They read through the different books, well mostly Lily, he got bored after one and a half chapters of all stuck and unstuck charms. He looked down at their joined hands. His thumb was moving just a tiny little bit over her hand. She really had very soft skin and it looked so pale next to his. It was a strange feeling to hold her hand. Yes, it was a bit annoying to only have one hand to do stuff, but it made his skin tickle where they touched and the tingle was running up his arm and down to his tummy. Where it felt like somebody let lots of bumblebees loose. It felt a little bit like how it felt before his first game, only less sick.

Finally Lily got all excited and pulled her other hand, and his with it, closer. "Here listen. When something is stuck to skin special care is needed. A useful spell for those cases is Separatum Circumspectus. The wand most run around the stuck object and then flipped to the side along the incantation."

"Sounds great." James meant it, because slowly he needed to go to the toilet. Something he hadn't really thought about while planning this prank. She grinned at him, before she seemed to remember that he got them in this situation and scowled at him.

He let Lily do the charm, because she was the best in charms. When the wand wandered over his skin it tickled some more and finally their hands came unstuck from each other. His hand felt very empty and the tingle all over his body disappeared. He didn't want it to disappear. He wanted to hold her hand again.

Because,

James was sure of it. Lily Evans had the best hands.
