This, I think, is the last chapter (I had to get to this part). I will be writing an epilogue type thing soon (probably tonight). Sorry if this seems a bit rushed. Words in CAPS are supposed to be italics, but the HTML isn't working. None of it except the plot belongs to me.


When Sirius exited the dormitory, he started running as fast as he could.

"Why in the name of Merlin did I do THAT?" He asked himself as he ran full speed through the halls.

He thought he heard people saying his name as he ran, but he didn't want to take the time to stop.

"Might as well go drown myself in the lake," he muttered breathlessly.

He pelted past students and teachers alike until he came to an abrupt halt.


He had ran straight into Snape. After they picked themselves up, the Slytherin glared at the Gryffindor.

"What are you DOING, Black?"

"Going for a run," Sirius said calmly.

"You're more hopeless than your family gives you credit for," said Snape. He sniffed and walked away.

"Thanks!" Sirius called in a falsely cheery voice. He continued on, but this time at a much slower pace.

When he reached the lake, he gazed out over it. Then he realized he had no coat, and would have to go back inside for one.

"Oh, damnit!"


Back in the dormitories, Remus had gotten up of the bed. He slowly walked downstairs, and found James sitting on a couch.

"Why did Sirius just come sprinting past here?" James asked.

Remus sat down heavily on the couch.


The werewolf had his fingers pressed to his lips, and a glazed look of surprise covered his face.

"Remus! Remus John Lupin, are you there?"

Remus shook his head, clearing it.

"What? Uh, yeah. Here. Right."

"What HAPPENED up there? First Sirius comes running down those stairs like there's a banshee after him, and now you're all dazed and confused."

Remus was silent again.

"Well, if you won't tell me I'll go find him."

Remus nodded absently. James got up and walked out the door. When he reached the entrance hall, Sirius was just coming into the building.

"Sirius! Just the man I've been looking for! I need you to answer me something."

"What?" Sirius asked suspiciously.

"What happened between you and Remus in the dormitory?"

"Oh. Um. That. I was a bloody idiot."

"Well what did you DO?"

"He wanted to know who I like, and I didn't want to tell him, so he asked for a hint, so I said I'd give him one and- and-"

"And what?" James prompted.


"Yes you! What did you do?"

"I... I KISSED him, James! On the lips!" Sirius said, then clapped his hands over his mouth and looked around to make sure no one save he and James had heard.

"Ooh, so THAT'S why he's like that....."

"Can you please go and get my cloak?"

"Nope," James replied, a malicious grin appearing on his face. "You have to go up there and get it yourself, meaning that you have to walk past Remus."

"You're a sadistic bastard, James."

"Thanks. Now, go get your cloak. I dare you to."

Sirius walked slowly towards the stairway, muttering under his breath. James waited a moment, and then followed him up.

Sirius stopped when he reached the portrait. He squared his shoulders, sighed, and said, "Pumpkin Pasty."

The portrait swung open. Sirius climbed through, and James soon followed him.

Remus was still sitting on the couch when they entered. He saw Sirius from the corner of his eye, and stood up. Then he walked over to Sirius wordlessly


"Y-yes, Remus?"

"Did you mean that up in the dormitory?"


He was cut off as Remus attached his lips to the other's.

"Awww, ain't that sweet?"

Sirius, without breaking the kiss, gave James a rude hand signal.

When they finally came apart, Remus said, "Sirius?"

"What? Are you going to tell me that this has all been a sham and that you actually love Snivvelus Snape?"

"No you dolt, I was going to say I love you!"

"Oh good!"

When the 'I love you' was said, there were a few whistles heard, and some people started clapping.

"Oh, sod off," Sirius said to the entire common room, who was by now gathered to watch them.

James spotted Lily and ran over to her.

"No," she said firmly when she saw him.


"I said no!"

"-that was such a lovely display-"

"James, I'm warning you!"

"That I think it should be reenacted!"


The redhead glared at him.

"I told you, no!"

"But Lils!"

"My name is Lily."

James sighed.

"It was worth a try," he said.

On the other side of the common room, Sirius had his arms wrapped around Remus. He shook his head when he saw what James was doing, and then looked down at Remus.

"Remus, you know what?" he said.


"James is an idiot."


"And you know what you are?"

"What am I?"

Sirius leaned down to kiss Remus. Just before their lips met, he said, "You are so damned beautiful."
