Alone Time

A fluffy SB/RL fan fic for Sirius_Girl.

Aries Sirius and Cancer Remus after a full moon.

Sirius and Remus arn't mine they are the work of JK Rowling.

Remus settles into his corner of the couch.  The corner closest to the fire, he sighs as the warmth starts to settle into him.  He pulls a blanket over him and picks up his book.  It's hours before Sirius will be back and Remus is thankful for the peace and quiet.  He's still sore from his transformation two nights ago, (the winter months are always the worst) and he isn't prepared to handle Sirius bouncing around the way he does.  He knows Sirius is unaware of how much energy it takes just to be in the same room with him.  Energy Remus doesn't have just now.  Remus sighs, knowing how hurt his lover would be if he ever found out how draining Remus can find this relationship.   His mother had always said love could be exhausting, now Remus wonders if she had ever loved someone quite as exhausting as Sirius Black.  Behind him the door slams. 

"Remus?" Sirius calls, "Peter says you aren't feeling well," Sirius takes a seat at the end of the sofa looking his lover up and down, "I've come home to care for you."

"There's nothing to take care of Sirius," Remus sighs, "I'm just a bit stiff," instantly he regrets his choice of words.

"Is that it then?" Sirius asks, arching his eyebrow and cocking his head.

"Not like that Sirius," Remus says with a smile.

"If it's not like that then you must be under the weather!"

"I'm fine," Sirius is silent and Remus opens his book again and reads a few words before Sirius starts to rustle about, "Can I read?" he asks careful to keep his tone neutral.

"Of course you can, you do all the time."

"I meant now."

"But I came all the way home to be with you."

"Don't pout.  And I didn't ask you to come home did I?"

"But Remus - you obviously don't feel well.  I can take care of you.  I can make you feel better."

"I feel fine."

"You're angry with me," Now Sirius really is pouting, lower lip practically quivering. 

"I am not," Remus says gently, "I just want to rest for a bit."

"But you aren't angry with me?"

"No."


"If I let you read, can I stay here?"

"If you let me read," Remus opens his book again and gets one more sentence along before Sirius starts rubbing his feet. Remus sighs - again, "Sirius…"

"I'm not saying anything!" Sirius defends himself.

"You aren't, but you aren't letting me read either!"   

"How about a back rub?"

"No."

"I can draw you a bath?"

"No…"

"Can I-"

"What ever it is, NO!  Can't you just let me be?"  Remus stands, gathers his blanket around him and skulks off to the bedroom, slamming the door behind him.  After a second he regrets his actions.  Sirius' hands are warmer than the fire, and a bath really would be nice… he stands and opens the door.  Sirius, still sitting on the sofa, turns to Remus hopefully.  Remus smiles and opens the door all the way holding his hand out to Sirius.  Sirius practically bounds to Remus' side with a huge grin on his face; "A back rub would be nice," Remus says allowing himself to rest against his lover.

"I'll be gentle," Sirius whispers guiding his exhausted lover to the bed.
