Interesting notion

"And then the witch turned to the crup puppy and said, ‘Wait a minute, dogs can’t talk!’ Anyway, that’s how I ended up spending all day in St. Mungo’s with a alcoholic, middle aged wizard and his three armed sister." The group of people standing around Lily Evan’s erupted into  laughter and she smirked, running a hand through her long red hair. "Alright, alright, disperse. I need to find Marlene." She pushed her way through the crowd and walked over to the desk that her blonde haired friend was already seated at.

"That’s the fourth time you’ve told that story today." Marlene noted while taking her text book out of her bag. "And for some reason, it gets more interesting the more I hear it. I don’t remember the tree fairies being there." Lily rolled her eyes and dropped down onto her stool with a huff.

"So I’m embellishing. It gets boring telling the same story over and over." Marlene laughed and nudged Lily with her shoulder.

"Oi, ten o’clock." Marlene nodded her head toward the door just as James Potter and the rest of the Marauders were walking in. James was already going over his notes and Sirius had his arm slung over the bespectacled boy’s shoulders, mocking him while he made sure not to let him trip or run into anything.

When James finally took his seat, which was directly in front of Lily (and not accidentally,) Lily lent forward and tapped him on the shoulder. “Alright, Potter?” She asked coquettishly, looking at him through her lashes.  She heard James sigh and bit her lip to stop from laughing.
