Severus stood beside the Quidditch pitch, waiting for the Herbology class to finish. The sun was beginning to set, and the wind had developed a bite as the warmth from the day faded. He was looking for one Gryffindor in particular, and his gaze kept darting back to the greenhouse, watching for a flash of red hair. He'd been outside every one of her classes today, but somehow when he saw her the nerve failed him and he walked away, head down, hoping nobody had seen him. As the cold began to seep beneath the school cloak, he grimaced, and swore silently at Regulus in his head, warming himself on the many ways he could make the younger boy suffer. There would be no need to go through all of this if Black hadn't meddled.


She didn't expect that, she only assumed he would go and stand in the corner loathing the whole event. Opening her mouth to speak, she was cut off by him retracting the offer. Slumping down a bit she leaned over him raising her brow. "That was a tad rude not letting me answer."
"Probably" he agreed, voice muffled through the hand on his face. Moving it down so he could see, he suddenly realised she was leaning over him. He blinked up at her, surprised, and tried to work out if she was genuinely annoyed he'd even asked in the first place, but her face was in shadow.
"Would you have said yes?" he asked, less afraid to hear the rejection now it wasn't quite so direct.
Thinking about it a moment, she leaned back. "More than likely." She said breifly before continuing pulling at at strand of misplaced hair. "I'd rather go with you than someone who'd try something."
Severus nodded automatically, before his eyes widened in surprise and he sat up, looking at her. He was about to ask again when the second half of her little speech registered, and he scowled at her. "How do you know I wouldn't try something" he demanded, a touch offended.
"You would have by now." She said simply, laughing just a bit. "Considering how many times you've been alone with me. I truly doubt you would do something in front of the whole school."
It was hard to argue with that logic. So, Snape didn't try. Instead he nodded morosely in agreement, wondering why he'd never tried anything, and why Lily had felt it necessary to stomp all over his manhood.

"Want to go with me, then, since your virtue will be safe and sound?" he asked again, expecting a different answer this time, but not entirely sure it was the one he wanted. She was never going to see him like... that. He wasn't exactly sure what 'that' was, but he was fairly certain it was where he wanted to be. And where he was never going to get.
"Of course." She said smiling, leaning back on her forearms. Laughing after moment, she looked over towards him. "It's so much easier when you don't have ask someone you fancy. And you don't have to worry about getting me angry when you sneak of with Regulus."
Severus couldn't be certain, but he was fairly sure a small piece of him died when she said that. Apparently there were two ways he could take it - either Lily was a closet sadist, or she had absolutely.no.idea. He was leaning towards the latter.

"You'll have to distract his date then" he joked feebly, and even attempted a smile.
"That shouldn't be too hard." Lily smiled and laughed. "I mean, how difficult would it be to strike up a conversation with the girl?" Then again if they found interest in Regulus, she wasn't too sure, though Lily could be quite personable.
