Sirius felt a little bit guilty for this. What he was planning was, essentially, a surprise attack. And Remus was probably going to flail like crazy, but. They needed to talk. And Remus had been making it really really difficult to get the chance to talk to him alone.

He knew Remus had been sneaking up to the dorms after everyone else had fallen asleep. So, to make sure he didn't, he'd chugged about three mugs' worth of coffee before he'd headed up, so he wouldn't accidentally drift off. He lay on his mattress, feigning sleep with his face down in the pillow, but his brain was so wired he knew he wasn't going to sleep anytime soon. The insomnia was going to suck, but it would be worth it.

He wondered when Remus would finally come up to bed.

Remus laughed against Sirius's shoulder. "While endearing, Sirius, the flowers really would be more trouble than they're worth, attracting attention and anyway, like I've been saying, I really am not a girl. And honestly...after all of this avoiding you, I don't think I could stand to wait another three days to talk to you." He blushed, glad that his face was hidden from Sirius as he continued. "I... I missed you, Pads," he said, softly.

"'More trouble than they're worth' is exactly how I operate, Moony. And flowers are nice regardless of gender," he teased. Resting his face against the back of Remus' neck, hugging the other boy a little tighter, he added, "I missed you, too. No more avoiding me because you don't want to tell me stuff, please? I missed being able to see you and talk to you and kid around with you."

Remus sighed. "I'm sorry, Sirius. I... I was scared. Scared of what you'd think if you found out. I mean, I promised you and James that I wouldn't go after either of you, that there was nothing to worry about there, and then... Then I couldn't keep that promise. You... You can't fault me for not being able to anticipate your reaction being like this, can you? I mean. It's not really all that normal, for people to respond the way you did to finding this sort of thing out, Pads. Not that I'm complaining, but..."

"It's okay. I mean, I get why you did it," Sirius said, resting his chin on Remus' shoulder for the moment. "But. Even if I didn't realize I liked you back, I still wouldn't have wanted you to be avoiding me. I really wouldn't have been mad, I would have just wanted you to be talking to me again."

Remus felt himself growing really pretty tired, sitting there, so comfortable and relaxed after weeks of being on edge even in his sleep. "'m sorry," he said again, mumbling. "Didn't think I could talk to you without you finding out. You figured it out anyway, even without me talking to you, so. Just... Didn't know how you'd handle it, s'all. Never could've expected this..."

Sirius chuckled a tiny bit. "I can't blame you, I didn't really expect it, either," he said. Not letting go, he said, "If you're ready to fall asleep, it's okay if you want to go back to bed, Moony. I did kind of crash on your bedtime there."

Remus knew that he should probably be getting to bed, but he couldn't find it within himself to move from where he was. He had Sirius, Sirius was warm and comfortable to lean on, and that's really all that mattered to him in that moment. "'m not tired," Remus lied, doing nothing to move anywhere whatsoever.

Sirius smiled and said, "Well, how about I lie back and you can stay right here with me, and then at least if you really do fall asleep, you're on an actual bed? Because I don't think you want to trust me to carry you back to your bed if you fall asleep on me." As he said it, he moved to lie back down on his mattress, still hugging Remus' back with one arm.

Remus registered that they were moving, but he still went with replying to Sirius even after they were already lying down. "Yeah. I... I guess that could work. As long as you don't mind that I'm here. S'not like we haven't slept in the same bed before, anyway." They just...hadn't slept in the same bed before quite like this, with Remus wrapped up in Sirius's arms and without a care in the world, almost.

He shifted a tiny bit so that he lay on his side, facing Remus, arm still around him in a warm embrace. "I don't mind. Now get some sleep, so you won't be exhausted tomorrow and think that this was all some weird dream," he said, shutting his eyes and settling his head on his pillow.

Remus was already shifting, tucking himself against Sirius for the warmth he was offering, his eyes haven fallen shut a while ago. Still, there was one thing left to worry about... "What do we say if James notices that I'm sleeping here tomorrow morning?" he asked, quietly.

"Tell him I confronted you about avoiding me and we made up and you passed out on my mattress right after," Sirius said, rubbing Remus' back absentmindedly, enjoying having Remus curled up next to him. "It's pretty much the truth, anyway."

Remus, for all that he kept his distance from his friends, really rather enjoyed physical contact from people. Maybe it had something to do with the wolf inside of him. So to be able to curl up with someone that he liked, and for Sirius to be rubbing his back like that, Remus was possibly the most content he'd been in quite a long time. So content that he wasn't going to even question whatever holes in their logic there might have been. He nodded, shifting to put a hand on Sirius's side to hold him close to himself. "Be careful you don't make me feel too comfortable here, Pads," he mumbled, half asleep. "I just might end up having to sneak over here more often."

"And that would just be a tragedy, having you be warm and cozy next to me all the time," Sirius teased, shifting so that he lay a tiny bit closer to Remus. "Now get some sleep, Moony."

Remus really wasn't kidding when he implied that he could get used to falling asleep next to Sirius if he weren't too careful. Not that he'd mind that, of course. Or that Sirius seemed to mind. Might not be too bad an idea really. He'd think about it more later, when he was more awake. He tucked his head against Sirius's chest, curling close to him. "Mmm," he said in response. "G'night, Sirius..."

Sirius curled his arm so that he stroked Remus' hair lightly under his fingers. "G'night, Remus," he said, letting his eyes slip close, leaning his head back against his pillow as he started to drift off.
