Remus Lupin lay awake in his bed, the one he had been occupying whilst at Grimauld Pace. He could hear Sirius snoring in the bed furthest away and Tonks stirring in her sleep.

Probably having a nightmare, he thought.

But here he was counting the ceiling tiles but getting nowhere because every time Sirius snorted (which was every 2 minutes or so) he would lose count and have to start all over again.

Whoever said that counting sheep helps you get to sleep obviously had wool for brains!

And so it went on for another half hour until Remus finally drifted off to sleep out of sheer boredom.


"Wake up Moony! You're really lazy y'know!" Came the voice of the famous, convicted murderer Sirius Black.

"So would you if someone kept you awake until £am with their snoring!" Remus replied, sitting up then yawning.

He done a simple clothing charm and the grey shorts he had been wearing for bed changed into robes of his usual shabby appearance.

"I didn't know Tonks snored," Sirius said shrugging.

Remus stood up and walked over to the door. He opened it and left the room calling from the corridor, "She doesn't!"
