"What the hell is that?"

Remus looked at the creature in his arms, then back to Sirius. "It's a kitten."

"A kitten?"

"Mmhmm. I rescued him." He stroked it and it purred, raising its head toward him as cats do.

"What is its name?"

"His name is Shakespeare," he answered. He gave his friend a reproachful look, as though he was afraid of offending the tiny kit.

Sirius glanced at the cat with a smirk. "You are the only person I know who would name a kitten after a dead Muggle playwright."

"I'm honestly surprised you know that," answered Remus.
