A/N: Fanning the Flames is a companion piece to the Remus and Tonks romance Promise of a Spring Moon and the counterpart to the poem Playing with Fire.


-

Remus

gathered the

scattered embers

of my heart

and

held them

in his hand,

cupping gently.

-

The softest

of breaths

sent warmth

through dormant coals,

tempting

flame

to spark.

-

Tender kisses

re-ignited passion,

stimulating

the wild

spark

to catch fire.

-

Bright

flames leapt

from

mouth to mouth,

dancing

across skin

like fiery fingers.

-

Encouraged,

fire grew,

gathering

love and desire

to fuel

the blaze

-

Consumed

in refining

fire,

my heart was

reborn,

a Phoenix

from ashes.

-

With joy

unimagined

and tears of

healing,

I gave

everything

to Remus

in love.
