“It’s good to have a role model I suppose.” James caught McGongall stalking from the corner of his eye and shook the young boy’s hand far longer than a normal handshake typically lasted. He smirked when Sirius chimed in with a mouthful of pumpkin pastry, watching as the poor lad nearly did himself in with a chunk of bread. “You have confidence, Gryffin. I’ll give you that much,” said James with a light nudge to Sirius.
James’s attention immediately shifted to Lily, his hazel eyes staring into her emerald ones as he leaned in to meet her halfway over the table. “I am being nice. He’s even got both ears. Big improvement from two years ago don’t you think?”
He watched with growing amusement as Lily introduced herself to Gryffin, reaching over to grab a roll from the nearly empty bread basket. “Mm, yes, insanely jealous,” he grinned, taking a bite of the roll and swallowing. “But she’s probably right on that last bit, mate. If you need help with potions or charms she can help you there. Transfiguration or quidditch- that’s my specialty. That and secret passageways if you want to sleep in and still get to class on time. And Lily can help you find just about any book in the library. Maybe even one on, oh-I don’t know- vampires?”
