Once upon a time, the idea of being so exposed and powerful with a Gryffindor would have been ludicrous, but now, it didn't even occur to him until Remus' arms were around him. "Jamie is not objectionable. In fact, I can seem to deal with the new generation better than I can deal with the older one," he said, but his voice had a far away sound, because his mind was still on the way they were sitting. "I trust you." He knew how ridiculous it sounded considering that they slept together, but that was different, that was sex, and even taking Remus into consideration while building a house seemed minor compared to this. "I don't worry about you being a threat, which is- Part of me is always careful, even with friends, but with you, I stopped being careful."
He smiled, not because of the smart arse remark, but because of his newfound realization. "Sure you can, and you can go without the potion, you can go without a real job, you can do a lot of things, but just because you have been able to survive, it doesn't mean that you have to do it again."
Regulus nodded. "We should. I miss the time when I could walk around in a robe and no one would care, but I suppose that I can make a sacrifice to be in London."
