7 (who?)
"You like him?" He was hurt, but that was to be expected. Of course he was hurt. That didn't mean he had any right to be.

"James Potter is not the man he once was," I said calmly, clutching the book I was reading so hard the top of the open page ripped a little at the top.

"I can't believe this, Lily!" he seethed, grabbing his dark curtain hair for support and stomping around.

Some part of me wondered why he cared what I did. I mean sure, he was picked on by James years ago, but he also thought I was scum – a mudblood. Why would he give a flying hoot what a mudblood was doing? Why would he barge into that library with looks so scary they could kill – causing many to jump back – and lecture me on my relationship, when he lost me as a friend years ago?

And yet… I wanted to talk to him, get his approval, get him to pop his grudges like a bubble and stop interfering with theses… sick arts.

But he'd never listen to someone like me. Why should the fact I used to be his best friend change that?

Severus made a movement as if to strike the pile of books that lay on the table I was sitting at, but seemed to think different of it. The sleeve of his white button up snagged up a bit in the middle of the action to reveal something dark and intertwined on his arm.

I gasped and hissed, "Severus!"

He continued as if I hadn't said anything. "After all the things he's doing to me – what he used to do to us! He's a bully, Lily! Remember that? He made us weak, and you're rewarding the monster by dating him, don't you know that?"

I looked down at my book and tried to read the words through watery eyes. He was a death eater, I just knew it. Even when I'd warned him it would kill me – that it would kill him – and that it was just wrong!

Without thinking, I stood up. "Severus, no one ever said the one who is picked on is the weakest – in fact, it's the opposite. The bully is weak, and you were strong because you survived it – and James was strong because he grew out of his weaknesses, he just needed a little guidance! You may not understand my decision to be with James, but I will never like the decision you've made," I said through a hitching breath.

Severus's shoulders slumped. "How many times do I have to say I am sorry?"

"Clearly not sorry enough to heave my warnings and not do what you've done."

He pinched the bridge of his nose as if he had a migraine. "The death eaters are the only family I have left! They are there for me!"

"Yeah? Well, tell me about it when they leave you in the middle of the war to die."

And without realizing that thirty people were watching in that library – including the bloody librarian – or that my face was probably red and puffy, I left without another word. James would be waiting for me.

Second one today, bitches ~~~

Hem. Sorry 'bout that.

Severus does very hit-able things sometimes, doesn't he?
