Harry woke up with a throbbing headache. What, why…? Oh fuck.
Looking around he recognized the blurry details as his room at Severus's house. Closing his eyes as the headache worsened, he smiled when he heard a familiar chuckle, then felt cool hands helping him up, and a vial pressed against his lips. "Drink, love. Sev's special hangover recipe. Works wonderfully."
Drinking it, Harry felt his limbs regain their functionality, and he opened his eyes to look into his lover's smiling grey ones. "I told you he likes you better."
Draco smirked, "Of course he does. I am his godson." He said swatting Harry's arm lightly. "Scooch."
Harry moved, smiling. Draco settled in next to Harry, laying his head against the dark-haired man's shoulder, pressing a light kiss to his bare shoulder. Harry smiled contently, wrapping his arms around the blonde's waist.
"Ah. The two of them need to find someone. I'd suggest that they date each other if I didn't already know how ridiculous the idea was."
Draco grinned against Harry shoulder and moved to stradde Harry's lap pressing his lips against the other man's lips lightly. "Hmm….maybe we should set them up with dates?" Harry moaned as Draco moved his lips along his jaw.
"Let's discuss it later love. Right now I'm liking what you're—oh god—doing too much"
Neither of them thought much about their godfathers much after that.
Severus left two vials of hangover potion in Draco's room right where he knew Draco would know to look for them. Then he stepped through the Floo to Remus's house. Looking around, he found the sandy haired man lying, naked and shivering on the floor. Summoning a blanket, he gently wrapped the man up and picked him up. Stepping back through the Floo, he set Remus down onto the bed that had recently become Remus'. In the past six months, after Severus had accidentally found Remus bleeding and naked on the floor at Remus' flat, Severus had taken up the responsibility of taking care of the man the day after. He knew why he wanted to. He didn't want to admit it, but he knew exactly why. He liked the man. In a romantic way. For Merlin knew what reason, but he did. And he wasn't going to analyze that anymore than necessary.
Gently tucking the man into bed, Severus sat down into the armchair near the bed, waiting for Remus wake.
Severus looked up swiftly. "Lupin. Welcome back into the world of humanity. How do you feel?"
"Amazingly, not terrible. What did you do?"
"I've been toying with your Wolfsbane again. How was the transformation?"
"Wonderful. It didn't hurt at all. I almost forgot that I'd transformed."
"We shall use this particular formula then. I'm going to go and investigate breakfast and our godsons. I assume you are well enough to dress?" Severus asked, rising.
Lupin smiled, "Of course Severus. Thank you again."
Severus waved his hand, as if trying to bat away the gratitude. Rolling his eyes, the man left the room, softly shutting the door behind him.
Damn the man. He just had to be so fucking nice. Couldn't he just stop it already? Everytime Remus thought he couldn't get any worse it seemed that Severus would go and do something completely ridiculous and cause Remus to fall even harder. What in hell was he going to do? This was so pointless. Severus would never even consider…Sighing, Remus got up. Might as well take a shower and get dressed. Food sounded good.
Harry and Draco woke up, their limbs tangled comfortably.
"mhmm, I think breakfast's ready." Muttered Draco .
"Time to get up."
"Me too." Smiling, Draco and Harry got up. Dressing in the pajamas they had left at Severus's, they entered the dining room to find Remus looking bemusedly at the Potions Master.
"Severus, I can hardly eat this much."
"Lupin. Start now. I assume you'll be done before lunch."
"Boys. I see you're awake." Waving his hand at the dishes, "Do eat. I assume after all that activity you're going to need sustenance." Severus raised a suggestive eyebrow at the two.
Both blushed deeply and avoided making eye contact with the two men. Remus and Severus looked at them in amusement and returned to eating.
