Family Reunion

Chapter Three: RSVP

Sirius Black and Remus Lupin

Remus was pacing around the bedroom, and Sirius was getting annoyed. The werewolf kept muttering things along the line of,

"I really shouldn't have sent the letter" and "what if he hates us?" Sirius rolled his eyes. The boy most likely wouldn't hate him (Who would hate Sirius Black? It was just ludicrous!) or his lover. He stood up, and moved to wrap his arms around the nervous man. He kissed his neck, and then whispered sweet nothing's in his ear until he calmed down. He then looked at the clock. He had sent the owl to Teddy containing the address the day before. It would arrive at his godson's house in two days. He had been very specific with the owl, and he hoped he had understood. Just when Remus had calmed down enough to sit down and sip on tea, there was a knock on the door, cause the sandy haired man to drop the cup he held. Sirius sighed, rubbing his temples, and looked at him.

"I will be answering the door. You will be cleaning up the spilled tea. It's okay Remmy. Calm down." he said, walking towards the door to their loft. He answered it, and saw the muggle mailman with a letter. Remus had made the special request to have their muggle mail personally delivered, and now Sirius knew why. His boyfriend had been planning this. The man handed the letter to him, smiled, and stood there. He obviously wanted a tip, but Sirius had no muggle money on him. So he shook the man's hand and closed the door. He looked at the letter, and then realized that he could not let Remus get his hands on it until his knew what it said. It was obviously from Billy Black. Sirius slipped into Remus' library/study thing and opened it. He realized his own hands were shaking as he started to read.

Dear Remus Lupin and Sirius Black,

I am sorry to bother you, but I just wanted to inform you that Jacob does intend on coming to visit you. I want to thank you for letting me be a father to this wonderful boy for sixteen years. He is truly a remarkable boy, and I truly do love him. Please be kind to him. He should be arriving in about three or four days. He will be bringing company that are... not usual. However, my wife informed me that you are not exactly the usual yourself. I hope you welcome him, as well as those accompanying him (for they are truly wonderful people) into your hearts. If you do, you will not regret it.

Thank you again, for sixteen wonderful years,

Billy Black

After decided it wouldn't send Remus into a panic attack, he allowed the other man to read it. He then confessed what was on his mind.

"Do you feel guilty? I mean, about taking Jacob away from Billy. He really does care for him." he say softly, knowing he probably just opened up a whole other topic of worry for he boyfriend. But he needed reassurance. He needed to know that he was not the only one who thought that it would be a good thing.

"I don't know. I think... it's better he know." Remus said softly, pulling him to the couch with him. Sirius sighed, and relaxed into the other man's arms.

"You're right. I don't know why I'm freaking out. He decided to come. I guess I'm just turning into you." Sirius said, smiling. Remus rolled his eyes, and relaxed.

"Are you ready to be a dad?" Remus asked.

"I've been ready Moony." Sirius said. With that he stood up, picked up the other man in his arms, and carried him to their bedroom. He closed to door behind them, so they wouldn't be disturbed for the rest of the night.
