Sirius turned his face away from Hermione, to prevent her from seeing the pain she had caused him. James and Lily's happy faces, kissing and holding hands flitted through his mind unbidden, followed by visions of Harry and Ginny in much the same way.

"Sirius?" Hermione's gentle voice called from just to his left. "Oh, Sirius."

Soft, warm fingers lightly brushed his cheek. Furrowing his brow, Sirius leaned into the hand softly caressing his stubble. He hesitantly opened his eyes and found her pretty face hovering close. Without giving time for his insecurities to surface, he turned towards her. Sirius ran one hand over her blushing cheek and into her messy hair. He leaned in and touched his forehead to hers, noses brushing against each other. He nuzzled her slowly, loving the feel of her soft skin, while bringing his free hand up to cup her other cheek.

A hand crept up to rest against his chest. The hand still on his face was tracing his jaw line. Soft lips pressed to his and he heard and felt her sigh at the contact. She kissed him sweetly, never fully opening her mouth to him. When her lips released his, he felt her breathe, "Sirius," into his neck.

"Hermione, I-" Sirius began. But her lips were once again on his. After a few moments, he broke the contact. "Wait, it doesn't have to-I mean, we don't have to-"

"You don't want to?"

"No, of course I do! I've wanted to for ages," he ranted, arms shooting into the air. "You've no idea how long-"

"Breakfast," she said, effectively cutting him off.

"I'm sorry?"

"Breakfast. You've been trying to catch my attention since that first day you showed up for breakfast."

"I-" he paused. "You knew?"

"No. But it all makes sense now, doesn't it?" She stepped close to him again so their shirts were touching. "Since you've been so honest, I suppose I should as well." He noticed a definite red tinge to her round cheeks. "I've had a bit of a crush on you for quite some time."

His eyebrows rose until they were barely peeking out from behind his hair. He watched her, stunned, as she turned her face down towards their feet. Swallowing past the lump in his throat, Sirius slipped a finger beneath her chin. Her confession and shyness had re-instilled him with some of the confidence he had been lacking. "You're so beautiful." He kissed her nose after she snorted at his comment. "You are. From your lovely brown eyes, this gorgeous untamable hair, all the way down to those amazing legs." Brown eyes met grey and he smiled. "But, it's more than that. You're so…witty, and intelligent, and you have the sweetest kisses."

"How can so much charm be packed into one man?" she asked, sealing his lips with hers.

He grinned into the kiss and pulled her body flush against his. The kiss deepened and her tongue pursued his. Little hands worked on the many buttons of his robes and shirt underneath. When the last one finally popped open, she ran her hands over his sparsely haired chest and pushed his clothes off of his shoulders. Her lips caressed his chest and down to his abdomen, driving him wild with desire. When her hands reached for his belt, he grabbed her hands and pulled her to her feet.

He touched his lips softly to each palm before lifting them above her head. He raked his hands down her arms and torso, brushing against the sides of her full breasts. Reaching her waist, he gripped the edge of her shirt and raised it slowly up and over her head. He took a moment to let his gaze wander over her curvaceous body before lowering his head to her neck. He sucked and nibbled on ever sensitive spot on her throat he could find, meanwhile, his hands were behind her back working on the clasp to her bra. Without interrupting the flow of his lips upon her exposed flesh, he slipped the supportive garment down her arms.

Using hands, as well as mouth, he lavished her breasts and belly with attention. Sirius glanced up to see Hermione's head tilted back, mouth open. He moved his hands to her skirt and started working it down her legs, followed closely by her little blue silk knickers. When she stood bare before him, he scooped her up and carried her carefully to his bed, where he laid her down. Again, he kissed and licked his way down her body.

"Please," she sobbed, her hips urging him on. He teased her for several more minutes before finally giving her what she pleaded for. "Fuck!" she moaned in a strangled voice. When she, at last, ceased trembling, Sirius crawled up her body and buried his nose in her hair. "That was…" she trailed off.

"Yes? You were saying?"

"Mmm…" She rolled him off of her and reached for his belt, this time, he didn't stop her. He put his hands underneath his head and closed his eyes as he felt her unbuckle his belt and open his trousers. He lifted his hips to help her remove them. "You don't wear pants?"

"Nope." He watched her with barely cracked eyelids. She licked her lips and her face disappeared from his view, as she moved to plant a kiss in the center of his chest. He left his eyes fall shut again. It was rare that any of the women he had been with had taken the time to worship his body as Hermione was doing. Her lips coasted over his body, occasionally her tongue would flicker out. Her heavy breasts drug across him, making him a little light-headed with need. He was helpless to prevent the moans and pants that escaped him.

"Stop!" A very amused Hermione moved up to straddle his body. "Incredible," he moaned into her mouth.

They kissed unhurriedly and let hands roam each others bodies for a few minutes. It wasn't long before they both moaned at their connection and froze for a moment to enjoy the feeling. Sirius watched as her head fell back, hips still rocking, and she let out a low keen. Her low moan grew into gasping wails, her fingernails biting into his forearms. The pain in his arms coupled with the pleasure was too much and Sirius came with a loud grunt. Together, their movements slowed to a stop and Hermione collapsed onto his chest.

"You've no idea how long I've wanted to do that," she said, snuggling into him.

Sirius smoothed her hair back and smiled, completely satisfied. "The day before I joined you for breakfast," he guessed.

"Longer," she whispered, eyes drifting shut.

The End.
