James wasn't able to take it any longer. He decided he needed to talk to someone, before he went mad. So, gathering his cloak, he hurried out of his room. Just before he descended down stairs, he caught a glimpse of Alice Edwards, along with Marlene MiKinnon, outside of Lily's door. Must be some girls night, he thought to himself, then quickly made an exit.
Down the hall, he quickly made his way to the Gryffindor tower, and up to the seventh years dormitory. Just as he started to burst in without much thought, he paused, and reconsidered. He knocked on the door, and decided he would wait a full three seconds before coming inside.
