"Hey freak, get up. Mum and dad are waiting downstairs."
Lily woke up to a normal greeting from her older sister, Petunia. Unfortunately Christmas didn't change anything between them.
'Let's get this over with' Lily thought to herself. She hated coming home, her parents didn't understand her and her sister was always as rude as could be. Lily couldn't wait until she got to go back to Hogwarts.
"Come on, freak!" Petunia called from downstairs. Lily sighed, getting up from her bed and trudging downstairs to where her "family" waited.
"It's about time, Lily dear. We've been waiting for a good ten minutes. Your father and I have work to get to." Lily's mother stated, sending a very well noticed glare toward her.
"Sorry," Lily mumbled, sitting in the one armchair that was left.
"Speak up, dear." Her father said. "It's not good to mumble."
"Sorry, father," Lily answered, speaking up a bit before pulling her legs up to her body. She hugged them close to her, laying her chin on her knees.
"Sit up, Lilian. Slouching is bad for your posture," Lily's mother said, sending her daughter another look.
"That's not my name," Lily responded, sending her mother a look.
"Well it might as well be. I still can't believe we let your grandparents name you Lily. Such an improper name, unlike Lilian."
"You know what, I'm done. I can't take it anymore. You three don't seem to want me here as much as I don't want to be here. I'm packing my stuff and I'm leaving." Lily said, standing up for herself.
"Leaving?" Her mother laughed, placing a hand up to her heart. "That's very funny, darling. You don't have anywhere to go."
"But I do. I have a lovely boyfriend who would gladly take me in, or I have some great friends who definitely wouldn't mind either. And even if I didn't have someplace to go anywhere would be better than here."
And with that Lily ran upstairs, threw on a pair of jeans and one of James' shirts she had stolen, and packed her luggage and Hogwarts things. She dragged them downstairs and out the door, walking away from the house she grew up in to who knows where.
. . .
sooooo lily's family is not that great. hopefully wherever she ends up will be a lot better than there (: oh and yes, james & lily are still engaged. lily only called james her boyfriend because her parents don't know that she's engaged yet and because she doesn't really want them to know that she's engaged.529Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7Xf0vtXUwAns 18.104.22.168da2
