When Hazel Met Grey

Rating: M (For swearing and lemons)
Summary: It had been 14 years since she laid eyes on her husband. Now they were in the same room, avoiding each other. Until she dared to look up. Her hazel eyes were met by his grey eyes.
A/N: SEQUEL! Set 14 years after the death of James and Lily. So begins just before the Order of the Phoenix.
"No, Remus! I'm not coming back." She was being stubborn but for all the right reasons.
Remus groaned as he followed her through the house. "May! He didn't do it. Peter set him up. Peter was the real secret keeper."
May scoffed as she placed clean clothes in Cecilia's bedroom. "No, he wasn't. Sirius was. He told me."
He groaned in frustration again. "No! He wasn't! He lied to you to keep you safe."
She pushed past him. "I'm not going back. I'm not uprooting my life and Cecilia's life just because you say he is innocent."
"Fuck's sake, May!" He was getting more and more annoyed with her. "Listen to me." He grabbed her arms and forced her to stay still. "He did not betray James and Lily. Peter is alive. I saw him. Please believe me."
"Get out!" She shrugged his grip off. "I don't want to hear this any more!" She pushed past him and walked down the stairs. She stopped halfway down the stairs. "You better not have told him about Cecilia. I'll never speak to you again if you have."
"May! I have not said anything to him. He's hiding at my place for the moment. He's moving to another secret house soon." Remus walked down the stairs, passing her. "You need to come back. Dumbledore is restoring the Order of the Phoenix. He wants you back."
She laughed and followed him, walking into the kitchen. "I'm not coming back. I am never going back to that country. I know me and my daughter are safe here."
"May. You've heard the rumours. He is back. Not Sirius. You-Know-Who." He stood in the kitchen doorway. May stopped and turned to face him. "Come home, please. You can come back when Cee finishes school for Christmas and the summer."
She smiled when he said 'Cee'. It was his pet name for Cecilia. Only he was allowed to call her that. "Fine." She picked up the kettle and filled it with water. "I'll come back next week. I need to speak to my boss in work first." Placing the kettle back in its place, letting it boil. "Where do you want me to meet you?"
"Diagon Alley? At the Leaky Cauldron?" Putting coffee into one cup and a tea bag into the other cup.
"Sounds good to me." She smiled as she added the sugar and milk into the cups. "Where are you staying?" Hoping she could stay with him.
"Ummmm..." He stirred his coffee. "I'm going to be staying with Sirius. He'll probably let you come and stay too."
She scoffed and threw her tea bag in the bin. "Fuck no."
"Mum!" Cecilia had just come into the kitchen with her washing. "You tell me off for swearing."
May laughed. "It's because you got the bad habit off me."
She laughed as she threw her washing in the washing room. "Hi Dad." She kissed Remus' cheek. "You need a shave."
"I like my stubble." Running his hand over his chin.
"Mum does too." Cecilia grinned at her mother, who just rolled her eyes. "So, we're moving to England?"
May groaned. "You heard?"
She sat next to Remus and reached for an apple, which sat in the fruit bowl. "Yes. You two are not very quiet when it comes to arguing."
Remus laughed. "Your mother. Not me." Sipping his coffee and winking at May.
"You're staying for school." May told her daughter.
"I am not! I hate it there! You and Dad can tutor me. Please Mum. I don't want to be in one country and you in another country." She pleaded with her mother, her hand tight around her uneaten apple. "Please Mum. You're always complaining about your job. Quit your job and we can go back to England."
"You've never been." May laughed and sipped her tea.
Cecilia groaned. "Please Mum. I want to go!"
May bit her lower lip. "Fine." She gave a heavy sigh. "Not yet though. I need to find somewhere for us to live and I will find you a private tutor as well as Remus."
The young girl grinned and kissed Remus on the cheek, rushed around the table and kissed her mother on the cheek. "Thank you, Mum." She kissed May's cheek once more before rushing out of the kitchen, and pounding up the stairs.
"I best get writing to the school." May sighed as she raised her wand and summoned parchment, ink and a quill. "Will you be all right to tutor her for a few years? I may come back here if neither of us can cope in England." She spoke to Remus as she wrote the letter.
"Of course I can." Remus smiled and drank the rest of his coffee. "So, I'll tell Dumbledore that you will be coming back."
She sighed heavily and nodded. "Yes. I will come back. Do not mention Cecilia to him. Not yet."
"Are you going to tell Sirius?" He asked curiously.
"No." She shook her head. "Not unless he asks." She smiled and stood up. "Right, I've got things to do. Can you owl this for me?"
He took the letter and nodded. "Sure."
May walked around to him, bent down and kissed his cheek. "Thank you." He turned his head and looked up at her. She bent down and kissed him gently on the lips. She gave him a small smile before leaving the kitchen.
Remus watched her leave with a small smile on his face. Could they be getting back together? He hoped so. He did love her very much.
A/N: There we are guys. The prologue to my sequel. There will be a mini triangle. Not for long though. :)
