RP: James & Lily Who: James & Lily Potter When: June 2nd, evening Where: Gryffindor Common Room What: A surprise Warnings tba
Time seemed to move differently when one wasn't constantly worried about someone trying to kill them and their family. Lily contented herself with making sure the Greenhouses were fulfilling their purpose, supplying both Marlene and Severus, as well as producing the more special plant ingredients for the perfumes that Parvati was interested in making. And James seemed to be keeping busy with his friends and job as well, which meant they only really got to see one another for meals and after work.
Like most married couples with children old enough to fend for themselves, they were making the most of the time they had alone, not not trying to see if a bigger family might be in their future. It had been about six weeks since the conversation they had about Sirius' suggestion for them, and while Lily wasn't really expecting anything yet, she had been feeling a little under the weather and sought out Marlene's expertise. Of course, in typical James Potter fashion, he just had to excel at everything, including family planning, apparently.
After swearing Marlene to secrecy, Lily made arrangements with the house elves to pack her up a romantic picnic, deciding that would be a great setting for telling James. Her excitement was hard to contain as she waited for him to get out of work so she could break the news to him. For quite possibly the first time in her life, Lily was adamant with Sirius that he was to make himself scarce until either she or James sent him a message. She had no idea if he suspected anything, but regardless, once James knew, she was certain he'd tell Remus and Sirius all about it.
Practically vibrating out of her skin with anticipation, Lily arranged a pillow nest of sorts, setting up the food for them. James was due back any second, and she wanted things to be as close to perfect as possible. Hearing the unmistakable sounds of someone coming through the portrait, she quickly sat down and tried to appear casual while she waited for him to notice her and everything she'd set up.
