What If? Part 18 (Scorpius Malfoy and Lily Potter)

Hello, this is a semi-filler chapter and in the next one or two chapters people are going to be very happy! As always comment/rate! Note: The chapter attatched to this is about what story I should start writing after I finish 'What If?'

Chapter 1

We All Know Who's More Stubborn

It was time to head back. Aleksander stood with Lily, before she left. "So is something the matter, between you and Scorpius?" he asked.

"No, why would you think that?" she asked.

"Well when he came this summer you two looked really close. Now it seems like you can't stand each other,"/Was it really that bad, he would notice it?/ Lily thought. "I like you Lily but I don't want to come in between you and your friend."

"Things have been a little...stressed but it's not because of you," she said. He wrapped her in a nice hug before leaving. She walked back to school and eventually caught up with Ronnie when they reached the courtyard and headed back to their dorms before dinner.

"So are you and Aleksander, you know?" Ronnie asked.

"I don't know," Lily said.

"You need to talk to Scorpius. Both him and Hannah looked like they'd rather be listenting to Professor Binns talking about troll wars," Ronnie said. Lily thought she'd say a snide remark, but she knew she was right.

Scorpius was working on an essay for Divination when there was a knock at the door. He ignored it. If it was anyone that lived in their they would barge right in. Another knock. "Score, do you want to get it?" Warren asked.

"No, I'm busy," he answered. Another knock.

"One of you guys has to get it," answered their nerdy roommate Greg. He was busy with an extra credit project for potions that was stinking the room up.

"They'll go away soon," Christian said, him and Warren were involved in a very lazy game of wizard's chess. The person kept on knocking. "That's it!" Warren shouted, he used a quick spell to open the door.

They weren't expecting the person who was there. They expected the second year girl that had a crush on Christian or the annoying third asking for help in herbolgy. It was Lily. "Can I talk to Scorpius?" she asked.

"Since when do you knock?" Warren asked. She rolled her eyes.

"I'm kind of busy Lils and I don't want to hear about your fail of a potions essay," he said dryly scribbling something down on parchement.

"I'm doing a lot better in potions, but that's not the point!" she said. The roommates were all looking at her. "Don't you have something better to do?"

"Yes we do. We're all quite busy, so if you'll leave," Scorpius said not bothering to look up.

"Then I'll stand here all night. We all know who's more stubborn," she said sitting cross legged in the door way. Five minutes passed and she pulled a book and began reading. The boys had ignored by now, after going to school with her for nearly four years you get used to Lily's antics. Another ten minutes, then fifteen.

"What are you doing here?" she looked up and saw Loki.

"Oh, me and Scorpius had a misunderstanding so I'm trying to solve it in a calm, rational and mature manner," she said with a fake smile.

"As long as you have a good reason," he muttered stepping over the girl who casually turned a page. She continued sitting there until nearly an hour had passed. It was still two hours until they would kick her out.

"Potter, what are you doing?" It was a prefect in his sixth or seventh year.

"Reading, what does it look like?" she answered innocently, batting eyelashes. He walked over and knelt down.


"Well I've tried other doorways and this one is just sooo much more comfortable. The one in my dorm is just so stiff and the doorway in Charms is too soft, but this one is just right," she said. The brawny teen looked at her. She was hard to get mad it looking and sounding like that, besides she wasn't breaking any rules.

"Make sure to clear out before lights out," he said getting up shaking his head muttering, "the fourth years are mental". She laughed to herself and the boys looked at her.

"Lils your insane," Christian told her.

"Why thank you," she said looking at Scorpius. "I'll play winner," she said gesturing to the game of Wizard's Chess that was going on. "Fine," Warren said. Scorpius couldn't believe they were encourging her. Soon Christian and Warren finished. Warren won and moved the bored over to the doorway.

"I'll play winner," Loki said chuckling clearly amused. Lily and Warren had an interesting game, but in the end Lily won quickly. Loki came and sat by her. "Who wants to play winner this time, Score?"

"I don't want to play wizard's chess," he snapped.

"You don't have to be mean," Lily said as they started. By now they had attracted the attention of other Slytherin boys. A group of older ones gathered at the end of the hall. They walked over and watched the two of them play for a while.

"What are you doing?" one of them asked. She rolled her eyes.

"What's it like? We're making a polyjuice potion obviously," she answered sarcastically.

"We mean why are you playing chess in the doorway?" another asked.

"Because the Headmistress gets mad if we play in the Great Hall's doorway and the Common Room is sooo unorginal," she answered. The older students exchanged looks. "Do you want to play winner?" they shook their heads and walked away. This time muttering 'Potter's finally lost it' and 'isn't she named after Looney Lovegood?'

They played for a while until Scorpius inturrupted them. "Your not going to leave are you?" he asked.

"I just wanted to talk to you," she answered. Loki looked at her, "We'll call it a tie okay?" she nodded and waited for Scorpius to put his stuff away. The two went down into the common room and stood in one of the corners, so people couldn't hear them.

"I'm sorry," Lily said.

"What?" he asked.

"Don't make me say it again, Score," he stood there. "I'm sorry for avoiding you and I'm sorry for my brother punching you; even though that was in the first year and I'm sorry for Fred giving a concussion." it all spilled out. He looked into her eyes and could see it was genuine.

"It's fine, Lily,"

"No it's not. I'm tired of being confused," she said.

"Your friendships enough," he said touching her cheek. She smiled her dazzling smile, but in his head two words echoed loudly. 'For Now'.

Things weren't right still between them but it was better. "Lily that owls at the window again!" Imogene shouted. She walked over and got the parchement from it. In the past weeks the owl had become almost as familiar as Mad-Eye, it was Aleksanders owl. She didn't want to read it, but she did.

Dear, Lily
I miss you, it's quite boring at Durmstrang; cold too. I can't write long, we have an exam in potions, but this is the first free moment I've had and am going to have free for a while. I hope to get a pass for the upcoming game between Slytherin and Gryffindor. I'll get to see you in action. I have to go.
See you soon (hopefully)

She sighed, what was the matter with Aleksander? Nothing that's what. She looked at the picture of the three of them and resisted the urge to crumple it up, but didn't. Scorpius had said there friendship was enough, but lately it seemed a lie.
