Title: Maybe (cont)
Characters Used: Lily Evans, with a very very faint hint of Severus (the friend)
A/N: Backtrack to Christmas morning
“Ho! Ho! Ho!” Lily said with a wink as her parents came out into the sitting room. She immediately grabbed a gift and began to sort them out according to the receiver.
“Lily, what has gotten into you? I’ve never seen you so excited about Christmas,” her dad commented as Lily shoved a present into his arms.
“There’s a lot to do today, Dad. I have to open presents, then visit a friend, and then we have to get ready for the party tonight.”
Her mom chuckled. “Dear, slow down. We have plenty of time.”
But Lily kept sorting gifts.
Character Used: Fred Weasley (sr)
A/N: This moment occurs at the Burrow in December of 1996
Fred returned to the house with a bag of carrots in one hand and a squirming, kicking garden gnome clutched in the other hand.
"This sodder bit me while I was pulling carrots, and now he's going to pay us back. He'll have to be the treetop ornament for the entire holiday, and spread Christmas cheer to make up for his evil deed. I think I'll dress him like Father Christmas and charm him to say 'Ho! Ho! Ho!' every ten minutes."
"No, here's something even better," George chortled. "We'll turn him into an angel. That should sweeten his nature."
The SDC was Neville Longbottom.
