I just want to start out by saying I hate the new tumblr update. It’s so annoying to do these indents. But anyway, this is for you, anon! Love, love, love this prompt!
James sighed, kicking off his shoes as he walked into the Heads’ private Common Room. He was muddy and soaked in sweat and rain water. The cool October air didn’t stop him from sweating like a pig. He’d just finished a rough Quidditch practice with his team, wanting to make sure they beat Slytherin during their upcoming match. Now James wanted nothing more than to get a hot shower, and maybe spend the rest of the night in front of the fire in the quiet Common Room.
He noticed Lily’s bedroom door was shut, so he made his way up the stairs to their shared bathroom, removing his shirt and pants along the way. He left his boxers on in case she were to come out. He threw his dirty clothes into his bedroom before walking to the bathroom. He ran a hand through his hair out of habit, thinking over what plays they would use during Saturday’s game as he opened the door to the bathroom.
There was a scream, and a wet washcloth thrown at James, who stood in shock. After getting a glance at the wet—and very naked—redhead, James quickly threw a hand over his eyes. “Fuck, Lily, I’m sorry! I didn’t know you were in here! I didn’t see anything, I swear!” James swore, backing out of the bathroom.
“Merlin, James! You scared the pants off of me!” Lily said. The shower was still running, but James could hear her getting out. She wrapped a towel around herself and continued. “You can look now, I’m decent."
James peaked over his hand, wishing he hadn’t. Sirius’ mum naked. James thought quickly, hoping to Merlin Lily didn’t see what was going on in his pants. “So you were wearing pants in the shower?” James asked, running a hand though his hair nervously.
"Huh?” Lily asked, raising an eyebrow at him. She rung her hair out in the shower that was still running in the background.
“You said, ‘Merlin, James! You scared the pants off of me!’” James smirked, doing his best to imitate Lily’s voice.
“Oh shut up,” Lily laughed. “I don’t sound like that!"
"You do,” James said matter-of-factly.
“What are you doing in here? Trying to see me naked?” Lily asked, raising an eyebrow. “It’s not like you didn’t hear the shower running. And the awful singing."
"You were singing?” James grinned. “Can’t believe I missed it. Will you sing again for me?"
"No!” Lily laughed. “I know you heard it. I thought you’d be at Quidditch longer, so I was enjoying a nice shower until I was interrupted.”
"I really didn’t hear you, I was thinking about Quidditch plays,” James said, blushing slightly. He was talking about Quidditch to Lily Evans, who was naked right in front of him. He tried his best to restrain the boner that was threatening to ruin his life.
“Ah, that usually does it.” Lily laughed. “Looks like you’re in need of a shower more than I am. But I was using it first…"
"You can finish. Just let me know when you’re done,” James said, turning to go out of the bathroom.
“Or…” Lily started. James turned back around to see Lily now facing the shower. She dropped her towel and stepped in. “We could save water. Shower together, you know?"
James gulped. Whatever restraint he had on his cock was completely gone now. “I— um… Are you sure, Lily?”
"Would I be standing naked in the shower if I wasn’t sure?” Lily asked, turning to smirk at James. She stepped under the water and leaned her head back. “Come on, you’re filthy."
James practically threw his glasses on the counter and stepped out of his boxers. He walked towards the shower, trying to remain calm.
As he stepped in, Lily smirked at him. “Happy to see me?” she asked, looking down at his cock.
"Well, Evans, it’s not everyday that the girl of your dreams asks you to shower with her,” James said, blushing quite a bit. He bit his lip, trying to just look into her eyes.
“You can look,” Lily smirked. “I’ve already gotten a good look at you."
James let out a breath he didn’t know he was holding as he let his eyes wander down Lily’s body. He took it all in: her hair matted down from the water, her twinkling green eyes, her round and firm breasts that looked like they were just the right size for his hands to hold, down her stomach and across a patch of red pubic hair that was shaped in a triangle pointing down, and down her smooth and creamy legs. “Beautiful,” he whispered, his eyes darting back to hers.
Now it was her turn to blush. She cleared her throat and grabbed James’ shampoo bottle. “C’mere,” she said pulling him under the water with her. She reached up on her tiptoes and began to gently massage his shampoo in his hair.
James could’ve sworn he was dreaming. Lily’s fingers massaged his scalp, and he thought he could die at that very moment and be completely content with the way his life turned out. “You’re something else, Lily,” James chuckled.
"Is that a bad thing?” Lily smirked, rinsing the shampoo and mud out of his hair.
“Not at all,” James said, gently pressing her against the shower wall. “You’re perfect…Er, I was wondering…” he blushed slightly and looked into her eyes. “Since you have me in the shower? Would you fancy being my girlfriend? Or at least a date with me?"
Lily grinned, wrapping her arms around his neck. “Well, I was hoping you’d ask. I’d love to. To both.” she said, leaning up and pressing her lips to his.
James grinned, kissing her back happily. “And you know, I wouldn’t mind all of my showers to end up like this…”
"We’ll see, Potter,” Lily smirked, kissing his cheek. “You know there’s also the Prefect’s bath that could be a great place to get clean together…Or a little bit dirty…"
