Much as he would have liked to spend the entire day with Regulus by his side, Remus needed to sleep and his lover needed to see to those tasks that inevitably followed such an endeavour as curing half a dozen people from an unknown poison. Remus supposed he would even want to look in on Snape, as well, now that they were all recovering nicely and there was no urgency restraining his time.
Much to Remus' chagrin, he also needed some time to sleep. Being petrified didn't actually provide the same sort of rest and relaxation needed to allow his body to heal -- indeed, that had been the point, freezing his body's function. Without the fever burning through his system, his sleep was much more restful and when he woke later in the day, he could tell the difference in his body's progress, where the fever had simply meant his sleep was as troubled as his waking hours. He could also tell the potion was working because his senses were beginning to regain their usual sharpness. His mind still felt a little sluggish with inactivity, but he was able to sort the input out more easily than he had been at the height of the poisoning.
Which was how he recognized his latest visitor before even opening his eyes.
"Some day, Pads, you three are going to get sick of sitting by a hospital bed and watching me sleep," he teased, golden brown eyes opening to seek out the stormy grey he knew would be there. "Although, if you're still here after more than a decade, maybe not. I promise I don't feel as much like Hell as I likely look."
