clovenbuttercup: (Padfoot)

Title: The Sticking Place
Warnings: None
Character(s): Sirius Black, Remus Lupin
Pairing(s): Sirius Black/Remus Lupin
Rating: T
Notes: Set, I think, somewhere in the MWPP well before the tragedy at Godric’s Hollow. The quote at the beginning, and thus the title, is from Shakespeare's Macbeth.
Summary: In the end, saying the words is easier than you thought.

But screw up your courage to the sticking place,
And we’ll not fail.

It's easy enough, in the end. You’re in bed together (a comparatively recent development) and you’re holding Moony tight in your arms with your face buried in his hair, and it just comes out, as you concede defeat at last in the argument you’ve been having with yourself for some time now about whether you should just tell him.

‘I love you, you know.’

It’s almost a whisper, you say it so quietly, and because of this Moony almost misses it completely.

It takes a while for him to react, as if he’s digesting the information, and you’re not sure why that shocks you (Moony can’t not know how you feel about him, you’re certain of it), but it does. You’re just opening your mouth to take the words back when his arms tighten around you.

‘I know.’
