Ok final chapter. I know I updated real quick, so yay me :)
Remus reached the library, only to find that it was closed. It was night time, so obviously it would be closed. He'd just needed an excuse to get out of the dormitory. He could hear footsteps nearby. Remus's heart rate picked up rapidly. What if it was Sirius? He braced himself... It was only Snape.
"What're you doing out of your dorm so late, Lupin?" sneered Snape.
"Oh, y'know. Just walking," Remus replied. Snape smirked.
"I'll call Filch," he threathened.
"Don't! Wait, why are you out of your dorm?"
"None of your business," Snape said. "FILCH! THERE'S A STUDENT OUT OF BED! OUTSIDE THE LIBRARY! QUICK!" With that, he ran away towards the dungeons to his common room. Remus could hear running from the corridor to his left. He had to go back now. He quickly rushed towards the stairs up to Gryffindor Tower. He desperately didn't want to go in, but he knew he had to.
"Password?" asked the Fat Lady.
"Blast-ended skrewts," said Remus quickly. As the portrait opened, he could see the dim light of the common room ahead of him. He hurried in, as the portrait closed behind him. The common room was almost empty. There were only two people sitting in there; Peter and James. Remus gulped, as they rose to their feet.
"Hey, Moony. Had fun in the library?" asked Peter. Remus nodded quickly.
"Are you sure it wasn't closed?" asked James.
"Oh. Yeah, it was," said Remus.
"Then why did you go there?" asked Peter.
"Were you trying to run away from Sirius?" laughed James. Remus could feel himself turning pink again.
"Um...Maybe," he answered.
"Why?" asked Peter, laughing.
"Well, I don't know! It's kind of embarrassing!" shouted Remus. "I don't know what to say to him now."
"Aww, he's not going to kill you Moony," said James.
"How do you know that?"
"Well, you know he's a big softie really."
"Maybe..." said Remus, unconvinced.
"You can't help it if you like him," said Peter. "Couldn't you just try not to like him?"
"Well, I uh-I love him," said Remus, looking at his shoes, which had suddenly become interesting.
"Really?" asked James. "I don't think you do..."
"Well I do, Ok?"
"Ok. But how long have you loved him?"
"Um, well I started liking him about three years ago. In the last year and a half, I've realised I love him."
"Aww," squeaked Peter.
"Why didn't you tell us?" asked James, gesturing to himself and Peter.
"I didn't know how you'd react. Sorry," said Remus quietly.
"Aww, don't worry about it mate," said James, smiling. "Anyway, I think you should go upstairs to talk to Padfoot now."
"Because, as I said...I don't know what to say to him!"
"Just let him talk then," said Peter. "You guys have to be able to talk to each other. You are best friends..."
"Mm, I guess," groaned Remus, walking up the stairs to his dorm. He reached the door, and hesitantly opened it slowly. He could see Sirius playing with his sneak-o-scope he got for christmas. Remus walked straight towards his bed, not making eye contact with Sirius.
"Hi," said Sirius.
"Oh, hi," said Remus, sitting on his bed and looking out the window.
"Yep," lied Remus. He definately wasn't okay. He was completely nervous and completely embarrassed.
"So...I just thought I'd tell you," said Sirius. "You have a great taste," he grinned. Remus laughed.
"Oh, well yeah, I know," said Remus, smiling.
"So, you think I'm hot then?"
"Yes," said Remus, embarrassed.
"Aww Moony, thanks," said Sirius. Remus could hear Sirius nearing his bed. His heart rate picked up again. "Are you embarrassed?"
"Uh, YES!" said Remus, feeling his cheeks growing hotter. Then he felt something he didn't expect. Two warm arms wrapped around his waist and Sirius's head rested on his shoulder.
"Don't be," whispered Sirius. Remus relaxed. He could feel the amazing tingling on his skin; the tingling he felt whenever Sirius touched him.
"Sirius?" asked Remus.
"What are you doing?"
"Jumping off a cliff. What does it look like I'm doing? I'm hugging you," said Sirius rubbing his head against Remus's.
"Oh," said Remus, unable to think of anything else to say. Sirius pulled away and turned so he was facing Remus.
"What's wrong?" asked Sirius, looking into Remus's sad eyes.
"Nothing," lied Remus.
"Yes, there is, Moony. I can always tell when you lie..."
"There's nothing wrong," Remus lied again.
"Please tell me," said Sirius with his puppy-dog face.
"Ok," said Remus, giving in to the charm.
"I just wish you liked me back," said Remus, trying hard not to cry. Sirius grinned.
"Oh, your wish is my command," said Sirius cheerily, clicking his fingers. "I do like you back, Moony."
"I do," he said, smiling. "I've liked you for a while now."
"How long?" asked Remus, finding it hard to believe.
"I'd say about 8 or 9 months now," said Sirius.
"Really?" asked Remus, not caring that his voice had raised a few octaves.
"Yep," Sirius said happily. "And I've always wanted to try this," he said, arms reaching out to wrap around Remus. He pulled him closer, so their chests were touching. When their lips met, Remus realised that despite being in a school for magic, this moment was the most magical moment he'd ever had.
N'aww :) I love Remmie/Sirius :)
Please review, thanks.
Thinking of writing a sequel, if you want one, just ask:)
