RP: Remus and Sirius
Who: Remus Lupin and Sirius Black
When: Early Morning - Monday, 19 April, 2038
Where: Gryffindor Common Room
What: Remus is done with being avoided.
When he stopped to think about it, Remus knew the reason Sirius was avoiding him. The club was a public space and, Remus had to admit, he had been more concerned about taking care of Regulus and mitigating the situation than paying attention to who was actually watching them. But, the timing fit. There wasn't any other reason for his friend to suddenly start avoiding him after that night, or the morning after when Sirius had come back to the tower and Remus could smell the lingering scent of sex and alcohol and Duke.
Although, that in itself concerned Remus because he knew how Sirius got when he was upset, how little he paid attention to how much he drank, how easy it would have been for someone to take advantage of that state of affairs.
But, regardless, Remus had begun to see things more clearly after seeing Regulus the day before.
He still thought Sirius was deluding himself about his own feelings. But, even if he hadn't convinced himself he was in love with Remus, he was Remus' best friend and Regulus' brother. He deserved to hear about their new state of affairs directly from Remus before word got around the castle. Even without students, the ghosts and portraits ensured that gossip spread like wildfire here.
So, Remus got up even earlier than his usual pre-dawn waking and made his way to the common room. He wasn't sure if Sirius had come back to the tower the night before, but whether he had or hadn't, he'd have to pass by Remus on his way through, in or out. When Sirius did finally appear, Remus stayed sitting in the chair near the fireplace, but spoke up to draw his friend's attention.
"Morning, Pads. Can we talk?"
