詹莉-迷情剂与福灵剂

W•Ravenclaw•Y

       “莉莉,醒醒。”玛丽掀开莉莉四柱床的床帐,让杖尖的光亮流入红色天鹅绒的海洋。

       “什么?”莉莉睡眼惺忪地揉了揉眼睛,“几点了?”

       “凌晨两点。”玛丽兴奋地回答道,“我们出发吧。” 

“去哪里?”莉莉想着,直到她想起了昨晚的谈话。

上节课,斯拉格霍恩教授给提高班的学生看了四种魔药——吐真剂、复方汤剂、福灵剂和迷情剂。斯拉格霍恩把一小瓶福灵剂奖励给了最好的活地狱汤剂熬制者,不幸的是,那人不是莉莉。西弗勒斯,不,现在要称之为斯内普了,配制了最好的药剂,颜色苍白得不自然,几乎是清澈的。他到底是怎么做到的?莉莉想,我搅动药水了那么多次,手腕都疼了,可它还是只达到了粉红色。“哦,算了吧。”她自言自语道,“我才不在乎斯内普做了什么。”

但重点是,玛丽想要一点爱情魔药。下课后,她兴奋地小声对莉莉说:“我们为什么不自己熬制一点迷情剂呢?”

“什么? !”你知道爱情魔药不能创造真爱,对吧?它可能会带来可怕的后果!”看到玛丽伤心的表情,莉莉急忙补充道:“再说,谁能拒绝我们迷人的玛丽呢?”

“噢,谢谢你。但是莉莉,我只是想把它当做香水。”

“什么,香水?”莉莉对玛丽的回答感到震惊极了,一时间竟不知如何是好。

“是啊,香水。”玛丽证实道:“教授说迷情剂的气味是最吸引你的东西,那如果我用它做香水呢。大家不会都喜欢吗?”

“呃……你确定这是个好主意?”

“得了吧,我又不会把它给任何人。同时,你也可以在这个过程中提高药剂技能。”玛丽恳求着,怂恿莉莉试试。

“那好吧,我试着给你熬制一点。”莉莉想了想,终于同意。

“太好了!莉莉你是最棒的!”

“但是记住,绝对不能用它做别的用途。”莉莉正色,补充道。

“是长官!”

然而,总是有什么地方出了问题。药水看上去还好——珍珠母的光泽,螺旋状的蒸汽——但闻起来不对劲。莉莉闻到了羊皮纸、墨水、阳光、百合花的味道——都不错,直到她发现了一种不太对劲的味道——一种青草、泥土和汗水的混合体,就像魁地奇球员在激烈比赛后身上的气味。但是她几乎不认识魁地奇球员。她唯一熟悉的只有波特,“我绝对不喜欢他。”莉莉斩钉截铁地说。所以最后,尽管玛丽没有发现药剂有任何问题,她们还是决定从地牢里偷一些出来。“我一点要看看出了什么问题。”莉莉坚定地说。

于是,她们三更半夜起来,正在违反校规的路上。

“嗨,莉莉!你还在听吗?”玛丽问,把她拉回现实。

“没事,我只是有点没睡醒罢了。”莉莉回答道,并恰巧打了个哈欠。

“好的,那我们走吧。”

姑娘们在彼此身上施了完美的幻身咒,开始四处游荡。在差点儿踩到洛丽丝夫人的尾巴,又在一间空教室里碰到了皮皮鬼后,她们终于来到了魔药教室。

“快,”玛丽说,“我感觉附近有人。”

“好吧,不要慌。现在没有人看得见我们。”莉莉安慰道。

突然玛丽悄声说:“等等,你带了瓶子吗?怎么办,我完全忘记了。”

“不用怕,我搞定了。”莉莉说着,从稀薄的空气中变出一个烧瓶,把坩埚里的神秘液体灌了进去。她把小瓶子藏在手掌里,正要和玛丽一起走出房间。但这时突然出现了一个人。

莉莉浑身紧绷了起来。她小心地把玛丽拉到一边,警惕地打量着新来的人。长长的黑发,瘦削而肌肉发达,看起来很熟悉,但莉莉在昏暗的灯光下认不出他来。但后来他开口了,马上就水落石出。他说:“尖头叉子,警报解除。”莉莉立刻就想离开了——原来是小天狼星布莱克。“这说明,那个波特肯定就在附近。”她想着。

“我们走吧。”她只张嘴不出声地说,但玛丽把她拉了回来。她的意图很明确,“让我们看看他们在做什么。”于是姑娘们留了下来,看着掠夺者们一个接一个地出现。

“我告诉过你没什么。”小天狼星对詹姆说:“可能只是一只老鼠。”

“没有,大脚板,我肯定有人在附近。”詹姆有点不安地回答道。

“不管他们是谁,他们还没露面呢。”莱姆斯·卢平对他们说:“去拿你们想要的东西吧。”

小矮星彼得不知道在什么上绊了一下,差点撞翻了一排药水。“你真的可以用上点福灵剂,虫尾巴。”小天狼星开着玩笑说,“还是你想要一点迷惑剂解药?”

“好了,我拿到魔药了。现在,我们走吧。”詹姆说,手里攥着一瓶金色的液体。

掠夺者就这样又一个接一个地消失了,留下女孩们震惊在原地。

“他们是怎么消失的?他们又拿走了什么?”玛丽低声问道。 

“我不知道,不过我们最好现在就离开这里。”莉莉小声回答。

第二天,事情变得更奇怪了。莉莉闻到了他们从地下教室里取出的爱情药剂的味道,但又闻到了魁地奇的味道。“这到底是怎么回事?”莉莉一边检查那瓶迷情剂,一边把它和她自己熬制的那瓶比较,喃喃地说:“它们完全一模一样!”

那天莉莉什么都不能集中精力。她从一个教室走到另一个教室,去上她所有的课,但老师说的什么都没听懂,好像在发呆。而且,她还不停地偷看魁地奇球场,有几次甚至还看了看波特!

“她一定出了什么问题,”玛丽想,“我怎么才能让她恢复正常呢?”突然,她有了一个好主意。

当莉莉又半梦半醒地准备去到图书馆时,玛丽及时拦住了她:“我们今天去魁地奇球场吧。”

“什么?”莉莉问,但还是有点困惑和冷漠,没有她应该有的震惊,“可是作业……”

“论文可以等一等。”玛丽打断了她的话:“但你今天肯定不太舒服。也许魁地奇球场里清新的空气和阳光会有帮助。而且,我们也许能找出你暗恋的对象。”

“闭嘴,玛丽!我对谁都没有好感。”莉莉大为尴尬。

“不信?那我们就去看看。”玛丽高兴地说,一边拉着莉莉朝魁地奇球场跑去。

当他们终于到达魁地奇球场时,两人都累得满头大汗。他们在体育场找了个座位,看着草地在风中荡漾。“谢谢你,玛丽。我觉得我现在感觉好多了。”莉莉刚要开口说话,格兰芬多魁地奇队的队员就进来了。

“你好,莉莉!”看到莉莉坐在长凳上,詹姆笑得合不拢嘴。“你是来看我飞得多好的,对吧?”

“闭嘴,波特!”莉莉立刻反驳道,她的轻松时刻完全被他的出现给毁了,“玛丽,我们走。”

“等一下,让我喘口气。”玛丽低声请求着。

于是,女孩们就坐在体育场里,观看格兰芬多队的训练。所有的成员都是很棒的球员,但詹姆似乎飞得特别好。嗯,好这个词不太准确。这位魁地奇队长像鹰一样在风中飞翔,优雅、轻盈,但完全处在控制中,就好像扫帚是他身体的一部分,对他的思想做出反应。

“哇!”詹姆投进了一记不可能的射门,玛丽倒抽了一口冷气。“他有点厉害。”

“不可能,他只是运气好罢了。”莉莉冷漠地回应到,但内心也有些佩服。

“没有人能这么幸运。”玛丽说,詹姆又进了一个球,“他可得喝上点液体运气才能飞成这样。”

“哦,对了,液体运气!”莉莉惊叹道,突然有了一个主意,“玛丽,你真聪明!”

“什么?”玛丽问,对突如其来的恭维完全感到困惑,“你是什么意思?”

“我是说,波特一定是从地下教室里偷了福灵剂。这就是他飞得那么好的原因。”莉莉兴奋地说:“训练结束后我再审问他。”

“但他为什么要这么做呢?”玛丽问:“今天只是平常的一天。他为什么要喝福灵剂呢?”

“我可不明白波特是怎么想的。”莉莉不屑地说。

训练结束后,詹姆冲向莉莉,“你看我飞得多好?他问道,像个乞求赞赏的孩子。

“不算太坏,我想。”莉莉冷冷地回答:“你一定做了什么不该做的事,才会那么幸运。”

但是当詹姆听到第一句话时,把它当成了赞美,欣喜若狂,完全错过了莉莉后来说的话:“那么你愿意和我约会吗?明天可是霍格莫德周末。”

“不……”莉莉刚要拒绝,那股魁地奇球员的气味就又出现了。这使她头脑糊涂,莫名其妙地紧张起来,让她作出一种不同于原意的回答。

“好吧,波特,”她听到自己在说,“我九点在公共休息室见你。”

“什么? !”詹姆问道,似乎不敢相信自己的耳朵,“你……你同意了?”

“是的,波特。除非你想收回那个提议?”莉莉回答说,努力保持冷静,但实际上她内心对她刚刚说的话比谁都惊讶。

“好诶!”詹姆高兴地上蹿下跳,挥舞着手臂,就像一个三岁的孩子收到了生日礼物一样。“她答应了,她答应了!”

“傻瓜。”莉莉喃喃地说,没有意识到自己的嘴唇上也挂着一丝微笑。

“我知道你喜欢上谁了!”玛丽大声说:“可我不知道是那个波特。”

“不,我不喜欢他。”莉莉尴尬地反驳道:“都是因为那个愚蠢的福灵剂。”

但真的是吗?莉莉寻找理由支持自己,但没有成功。真正的答案是否定的。自从他不再那么爱炫耀,莉莉就情不自禁地被他吸引住了。他的微笑,他的笑话,甚至他尴尬时耳朵发红的样子,莉莉都觉得很可爱。在斯内普事件之后,她开始意识到自己可能真的比想象中更喜欢波特,甚至一点一点地爱上了他。而这些天,每次他约莉莉出去,她都有一小部分想同意——你为什么不给他一次机会呢?她心里总是说。她知道这样才公平,但她一直抗拒——不,他是个十足的白痴,我绝对不喜欢他。这一次,伴随着福灵剂和爱情魔药的味道,她终于面对了自己。

但在那一天剩下的时间里,她不停地问自己:“我是自己答应他的,还是仅仅因为福灵剂的影响?”“如果我是被福灵剂影响着同意的,那还意味着我真的喜欢波特吗?”这些问题在莉莉的脑海里盘旋。最后,她忐忑不安地睡着了。

终于到了第二天。她起得很早,穿上平常的衣服。“我不想小题大做,以免让波特太自负。她告诉玛丽,但把头发梳得更仔细了一点,还化了一点淡妆。

“哇,莉莉,你真漂亮!”玛丽看见她时大声说:“你要把波特逼疯了。”

“闭嘴!”莉莉说,脸红了。

于是她出去匆匆吃了一顿早饭,在公共休息室遇见了詹姆。“他看起来确实更成熟了。”莉莉自言自语道。

的确。詹姆穿着一双新运动鞋,刚梳过的头发,新洗过的校袍,让他仿佛成熟了许多。他紧张地朝莉莉笑了笑,“准备好了吗?”

“当然。”她回答的,于詹姆一起迈出肖像洞口,开始了魔法世界中又一个美好的日子。

他们在霍格莫德玩得很开心,在巫师街的街道上闲逛。他们来到三把扫帚酒吧,一边喝着美味的黄油啤酒,一边聊天。他们在蜂蜜公爵尽情的享受,尽可能多地吃巧克力。最后,他们去了佐科,用魔法物品互相开着玩笑。莉莉已经很久没有这么开心了,也许自从她发现自己是个女巫以后就没有了。“这都是因为他服的福灵剂,”莉莉提醒自己,“今天的一切都是基于一种魔药,都是虚假的,不要过于享受了。等药效过去,我再审问他。”

最后,在他们分手之前,詹姆把莉莉拉到一边,“一件小礼物。他对她说,脸上带着紧张的微笑。

莉莉好奇地打开了礼品盒。里面坐着她从没见过的最可爱的泰迪熊,它手里拿着一个心形的小瓶子,里面装着满满一瓶金色的液体——福灵剂!

“什么!你没有喝福灵剂?”莉莉惊讶地问。

“没有,当然没有,这可是给你的。”詹姆回答说:“等一下,你怎么知道我手里有福灵剂?”

“没关系。”莉莉急忙说:“这么说你一整天什么也没喝喽?”

“没有。嗯,也许除了三把扫帚里那瓶美味的黄油啤酒。”詹姆笑着回答道:“怎么了?”

“没什么,我只是以为你一定是喝了福灵剂,否则我就不会……”莉莉突然发现她的想法有点苛刻,及时制止了自己,“这些年你真的进步了很多,詹姆。”

“当然了,女士。我愿意为你做任何事。还有那个福灵剂……”他的耳朵突然红了,嘴里嘟囔着什么“最幸运的人”,莉莉没听见。

“那么,你当时在说什么?”多年以后,当看到哈利和那只泰迪熊玩的时候,波特夫人问她的丈夫。

“我是说,我不需要更多的运气了。我已经是世界上最幸运的人了,”詹姆嘴角挂着甜蜜的微笑回答道,“仅仅因为我遇见了你。”

Jily- Amortentia and Felix Felicis

       “Wake up,Lily.”Mary lifted the curtains around Lily’s four-poster,letting the light from the tip of her wand seep through the velvet red.

       “What?”Lily yawned and opened her eyes sleepily,“What time is it?”

       “2 o’clock in the morning.”Mary answered excitedly,“Let’s go.”

       “Go where?”Lily wondered,until she remembered the conversation last night.

       Professor Slughorn showed the N.E.W.T. students four kinds of potion-Veritaserum,Polyjuice Potion,Felix Felicis and Amortentia during the previous class. Slughorn awarded a tiny bottle of Felix to the best Draught of Living-Death brewer,which,unfortunately,wasn’t Lily. Severus,no,he’s Snape now,made the best potion,the color unnaturally pale,almost clear. How on earth did he do that? Lily thought,I’ve stirred the potion so many times that my wrist was aching,but still it only reached the level of pink. “Oh,forget it.”she murmured to herself,“I don’t care what Snape has done.”

But the point is,Mary wanted to get a bit of the love potion. She whispered to Lily excitedly after class,“Why don’t we brew a bit of Amortentia?”

“What?! You know that love potions can’t create real love,don’t you? There can be horrible consequences!”seeing the hurt look on Mary’s face,Lily added hastily,“Besides,who can possibly refuse our charming Mary?”

“Oh,that’s sweet. But Lily,I just want to get some perfume.”

“What,perfume?”Lily was shocked by Mary’s respond.

“Yeah,perfume.”Mary confirmed,“Isn’t it said that Amortentia produces the smell that attract you the most? Then what if I use it as perfume. Won’t everybody love it?”

“Err…you sure this is a good idea?”

“C’mon,it’s not like I will give it to anyone. Also,you can improve your potion skill during the process.”Mary pleaded,egging Lily to try.

“Alright then,let’s try to brew you some.”Lily finally agreed.

“Yeah! You’re the best,Lily!”

“But remember,no enchanting anyone to fall in love with you.”

“Yes,ma’am!”

However,something had to go wrong. The potion looked alright-mother-of-pearl sheen,spiral steam-but it didn’t smell right. Lily smelled parchment,ink,sunshine,lily flower-all great,until she discovered a smell that isn’t quite pleasant at all-a combination of grass and mud and sweat,like what the Quidditch players may smell like after a hard match. But she hardly knew any Quidditch player very well. The only one she was familiar with was that Potter,“I’m definitely not attracted to him.”she argued. So in the end,even though Mary found nothing wrong with the potion,they decided to smuggle some from the dungeon,“I’ve got to find out what’s wrong with it.”Lily said determinedly.

So here they were,awake at the dead of the night,on the way to break some school rules.

“Hey,Lily! Are you still with me?”Mary asked,pulling her back to reality.

“Yeah,I’m alright. Just a bit tired.”

“Alright then,let’s go.”

With a well-placed Disillusionment Charm on themselves,the girls set off to wander. After nearly stepping on Mrs. Norris’s tail and meeting Peeves in an empty classroom,they finally reached the dungeon.

“Quick,”Mary said,“I think someone is near.”

“Alright,don’t panic. We’ve got camouflage now.”Lily reassured her.

Mary suddenly whispered,“Wait,have you brought a bottle or something? I’ve completely forgotten about those.”

“Nah,I’ve got it covered.”Lily said as she produced a flask out of thin air,filling it with the mysterious liquid in the cauldron. She hid the tiny tube in her palm,and was just about to walk out of the room with Mary when somebody appeared out of nowhere.

Lily’s shoulder tensed. She carefully pulled Mary aside with her,and regarded the newcomer closely. Long black hair,lean and muscular,something seemed familiar,but Lily can’t really recognize him in the dim light.

But then he talked,and everything was clear. He said,“Prongs,all cleared.”And immediately Lily wanted to get away-it was Sirius Black. Which meant that Potter was nearby.

“Let’s go.”she mouthed,but Mary pulled her back. Her intention was clear,“Let’s see what they’re up to.”So the girls stayed,watching the Marauders appearing one by one.

“I told you it was nothing.”Sirius said to James,“Probably just a mouse.”

“No,Padfoot,I knew somebody was near.”James said a bit anxiously.

“Whoever they are,they haven’t bothered to show themselves yet.”Remus Lupin told them,“Just go and get what you want.”

Peter Pettigrew stumbled forward,nearly knocking over a row of potion materials. “You can really do with some Felix,Wormtail.”Sirius joked,“Or would you need some Befuddlement Draught antidote?”

“Alright then,I’ve got the potion. Now,let’s go.”James said,clutching a vial of golden liquid in his hand.

So the Marauders disappeared,leaving the girls shocked.

“How did they disappear? And what have they taken?”Mary whispered.

“I don’t know,but we’d better get out of here now.”Lily whispered back.

The next day,things became even odder. Lily smelled the love potion they took from the dungeon,but got the Quidditch smell again. “What the heck is going on?”Lily murmured while examining the flask of Amortentia,comparing it to the bottle she has brewed herself,“They are exactly the same!”

Lily couldn’t focus on anything that day. She wandered from classroom to classroom,going to all her lessons,but not taking in anything the teacher said,as if in a trance. What’s more,she kept stealing nervous glances at the Quidditch field,and for a few times,even at Potter!

“Something must be wrong with her,”Mary thought,“How can I get her back to normal?”Suddenly,she had a great idea.

When Lily wandered to the library,Mary stopped her just in time,“Let’s go to the Quidditch field today.”

“What?”Lily asked,but still a bit confused and distant,not as shocked as she should be,“But the homework…”

“The essays can wait.”Mary cut her off,“But you’re definitely not well today. Maybe the clean air and sunshine in the Quidditch field can help. Besides,we might be able to figure out your secret crush.”

“Shut up,Mary! I don’t have a crush on anyone.”Lily argued embarrassedly.

“Well,let’s go and find out.”Mary said happily as she sprinted towards the Quidditch field,dragging Lily along.

When they finally reached the Quidditch field,both of they were tired and sweaty. They picked a seat in the stadium,watching the grass rippling in the wind. “Thank you,Mary. I do think I’m feeling better now.”Lily was just beginning to talk when the Gryffindor Quidditch team came in.

“Hello,Lily!”James smiled ear-to-ear when he saw Lily sitting on a bench,“You came to see how well I play,didn’t you?”

“Shut up,Potter!”Lily snapped back,her relaxing moment completely ruined by his appearance,“Mary,let’s go.”

“Wait a second,let me catch my breath.”Mary muttered.

So the girls sat in the stadium,and watched the Gryffindor team train. All the members were great flyers,but James seemed to fly especially well. Well,well wasn’t exactly the word. The Quidditch captain flew like an eagle in the wind,graceful,light,yet completely in control,as if the broom is a part of his body,responding to his thought.

“Wow!”Mary gasped as James made an impossible shot,“He has skill.”

“Nah,he’s just lucky.”Lily responded,but also quite impressed in the inside.

“Nobody can be this lucky.”Mary said when James scored another goal,“He would have to drink liquid luck to do this.”

“Oh right,liquid luck!”Lily exclaimed,suddenly struck by an idea,“Mary,you’re so clever!”

“What?”Mary asked,completely mystified by the sudden compliment,“What do you mean?”

“I mean Potter must have taken Felix Felicis from the dungeon. That why he can play so well.”Lily said excitedly,“I’ll interrogate him after the training session.”

“But why would he do that?”Mary asked,“Today is just an ordinary day. Why would he drink Felix?”

“I definitely don’t understand how Potter thinks.”Lily snapped.

After the training ended,James rushed towards Lily,“You see how well I fly?”he asked,like a kid pleading for an approval.

“Not too bad,I suppose.”Lily answered coldly,“You must have done something forbidden to be that lucky.”

But James was over the moon when he heard the first sentence,taken it as a compliment,and completely missed what Lily said afterwards,“Then will you go out with me? There’s a Hogsmeade weekend tomorrow.”

“N…”just as Lily began to refuse,that smell caught her breath,that Quidditch player smell again. It clouded her mind,made her nervous with no apparent reason,and let her say an answer different from all the others.

“Alright then,Potter,”she found herself saying,“I’ll meet you in the common room at 9.”

“What?!”James asked,as if he couldn’t believe his ears,“You…you will?”

“Yes,Potter. Unless you want to take back that offer?”Lily replied,trying to keep her cool,but actually also quite surprised in the inside by what she has just said.

“Yeah!!!”James ran back joyfully,waving his arms like a three-year-old who has got his birthday gift,“She said yes,she said yes!”

“What a fool.”Lily murmured,not realizing that she now,too,had a faint smile on her lips.

“I know you had a crush on somebody!”Mary exclaimed,“But I didn’t know that it is Potter.”

“No,I don’t like him.”Lily snapped back embarrassedly,“It’s all because that stupid Felix.”

Or is it? Lily searched herself for reasons to agree,but failed. The true answer would be no. Ever since he became not so much a showoff,Lily can’t really help to be attracted to him. His smile,his jokes,even the way his ears redden when embarrassed,Lily found them cute. After the incident with Snape,she started to realize that she might really be more attached to Potter than she thought,falling for him bit by bit. And these days,every time he asked Lily out,a tiny part of her wanted to agree-why don’t you give him a chance? That part of her would always say. She knew that was only fair,but she kept resisting-no,he’s a complete moron,I definitely don’t like him. And this time,along with Felix,and the smell of the love potion,the temptation was too strong,that she finally faced herself.

But during the rest of the day,she kept questioning herself,“Did I agree to him intentionally,or is it just because the effect of Felix?”“If I was pushed by Felix,does it still means I truly like Potter?”With these questions circling in her mind,Lily drifted off into an uneasy sleep.

Finally,the next day came. She got up early,dressed herself in her usual clothes,“I don’t want to make a fuss and boost Potter’s ego.”she told Mary,but combed her hair a bit more carefully,and used a tiny bit make-up.

“Wow,Lily,you’re beautiful!”Mary exclaimed when she saw her,“You are going to drive Potter crazy.”

“Shut up!”Lily said,her cheeks reddened.

So she went out to have a quick breakfast,and met James in the common room. “He does seem more matured.”Lily noted to herself.

Indeed,he did. James wore a new pair of sneakers,his hair newly combed and school robes freshly laundered. He smiled nervously at Lily,“You ready?”

“Yes,”she answered,and was then lead out of the portrait hole by James,lead into the wonderful day of the Magical World.

They had a great time in Hogsmeade,wandering through the streets of the wizarding street. They went to Three Broomsticks,drinking the wonderful Butterbeer and chatting. They enjoyed themselves in Honeydukes,eating as much chocolate as they can. Finally,they went to Zonko’s,pulling jokes on each other with the magic items. Lily hasn’t felt this happy for a long time,maybe not ever since she found out that she’s a witch Hogwarts. “It’s all because the Felix he has taken,”Lily reminded herself,“Everything today is based on a potion. I will interrogate him after it wears off.”

Finally,before they part,James pulled Lily aside,“A little gift.”he told her with a nervous smile on his face.

Curiously,Lily opened the gift box. Inside sat the cutest teddy bear she has ever seen,and in its hands,was…a heart-shaped vial of Felix Felicis!

“What! You haven’t take the Felix?”Lily asked,shocked and surprised.

“No,of course not.”James answered,“Wait a second,how do you know that I’ve got Felix?”

“Never mind.”Lily said hastily,“So you haven’t drunk anything for the whole day?”

“No. Well,maybe except that wonderful Butterbeer in Three Broomsticks.”James responded,“What’s wrong?”

“Nothing,I just thought you must have taken Felix,or else I wouldn’t…”Lily suddenly found her thought a bit harsh and caught herself just in time,“You really have improved a lot these years,James.”

“Of course,my lady. I’ll do anything for you. And about the Felix…”his ears suddenly reddened as he mumbled something about “luckiest man”that Lily didn’t catch.

“So,what were you saying at that time?”Years later,when watching Harry playing with the teddy bear,Mrs. Potter asked her husband.

“I was saying,that I don’t need any more luck. I’m already the luckiest man on Earth,”James answered with a sweet smile on his lips,“just because I’ve met you.”
