"I tend to get lucky," Remus said, offhandedly, as left the apartment. He expected Sirius to follow suit, and didn't turn to check before he started going down the first flight of stairs. "Must be karma, making up for all the suffering I do at work."
The addition was spoken with a hint of a crooked grin, making it hard to read if the initial phrasing had been intended as being provocative or if it was just blind innocence. His gaze didn't linger on Sirius enough for there to be any sort of confirmation of either.

Sirius couldn't help but grin at the comment, knowing that he was probably being very juvenile, but he simply refused to believe that Remus didn't know what he was saying. Sure, he did seem to be a lot more innocent than both Sirius and James, but there was simply no way he was that innocent.
"If it gets down to it, I can always make sure that you get lucky," Sirius said with a wink, assuming that Remus would tell him that he was too bold. He knew that he was pretty flirty and most people close to him didn't really mind that, but it was always a lot more difficult when he had to meet someone new. Luckily, Remus didn't seem to mind.

Remus snorted out a genuine, surprised laugh at Sirius' response. Sure, Remus had said the comment as a joke, but how insistingly and, almost more amazingly, how consistently Sirius would turn them around and return them as something which, rationally, should fluster Remus. Sirius was, however, so out of Remus' league he had no issue seeing right through the jokes.
"That's very charitable of you, Sirius," Remus grinned, the laugh still very audible in his voice. He had turned, and started walking down the last flight of stairs, glancing at Sirius over his shoulder with a crooked smile. "You private school kids are so polite."

"That is the first thing we learn in private school, we should always try to help the less fortunate," Sirius said with a crooked grin, hoping that Remus would know that it was fully a joke and nothing but that. He knew that Remus didn't have a lot of money and that that wasn't always fun to have pointed out, but he just hoped that they would be at a point by now, where they would be able to joke about such things.
"That is why rich people host so many charities."

Remus involuntarily grinned at that; Sirius' comment was unnecessarily harsh, and given any other context, Remus would not have hesitated in distancing himself from that conversation - yet, he found himself biting his bottom lip in an attempt to quench his smile.
"You're such a piece of ****," he responded, his voice airy but strained, in an obvious attempt to not let it show truly how much Remus was humored by the comment. It was only after having finished the insult Remus finally dared to meet Sirius' eye, afraid he wouldn't be able to keep a straight face if he attempted to deliver it facing Sirius.
"Charities are ego boosts and you know this," he added, a smile tugging at the corner of his mouth, before finally turning to open the front door and exiting the building.

"Oh yeah, I definitely know this," Sirius said with a crooked grin. He had attended several while growing up and he always knew that those people didn't give a damn about the charities they were supporting, it was all just for them to look a lot better than they were actually acting and he had never quite been able to stomach it. It had just further made it clear to him that he didn't fit in with his own family and had been another factor in his decision to move away.
"I have been to plenty and I hated them all," he said with a shrug, as he exited the building with Remus, having almost forgotten what they were actually on their way to do.

"So we can't even blame your inflated ego on your charities, huh?" Remus challenged, as he matched his pace to Sirius', allowing them to walk aside of each other for the first time.
The laugh still lingered in his voice, taking much of the edge off of his words, as he glanced sideways to meet the other's eye. A hint of a smile was stil adorning Remus' lips. "I would have guessed that's where that started."

Sirius grinned at that, not minding being the butt of a joke, as long as Remus was the one telling it. He was used to having to make a fool of himself, mostly because he was still very keen to prove that he was nothing like his family. It was difficult to completely leave behind the life he lead before, but he felt like he was getting really close and that was honestly all he could hope to do.
"I think being the oldest born into an upper class family did that to me. I was ruined from birth," he added with a crooked grin.

Remus just hummed at that, feeling like that could make sense, too. Remus had had little to no experience with upper class kids up until college, and even now it was hard to separate expectations from reality; while Remus could tell Sirius was raised differently than he was, he also didn't find Sirius to be that bad company.
"How horrible," Remus settled for, his voice flat but not unfriendly; it was, after all, hard to pity a child growing up with and to money.
The comparatively harsher comment was followed by a quick sideways glance, with a barely a hint of a smile, all intended to soften up his words, while not further engaging in the exchange.
With a nod to Sirius' right, a relieved smile finally flashed Remus' teeth. The dismantled bed frame was still resting against the same wall, Remus had passed on his way back from work. "It's still there."

"So you did get lucky today," Sirius said with a crooked grin, not minding the relatively harsh tone Remus keep using for him. He figured that Remus would be able to make it clear to him, if he actually meant any of the things he was saying; or at least if he meant them quite that harshly. Otherwise, Sirius probably wouldn't have agreed to help him out.
"So, how do we do this the best way?" He asked, wanting to know how Remus had been thinking that they went about this. It probably wasn't going to be that difficult, but they had to communicate properly, otherwise they could end up ruining the bedframe.

The involuntary twitch in the corner of Remus' mouth effectively illustrated the fact that he had, in part, forgotten they had had that entire exchange. Being faced with his own, joking phrasing of the situation almost managed to crack him up.
"You sound surprised," Remus challenged, as nonchalantly as the peaking smile would allow him to. He was, after all, pretty sure he had told Sirius that that tended to happen. By the time Remus finally looked away, a grin had appeared onto his lips.
"Do you think you can carry the two sidepieces at once?" Remus shifted his position, moving closer to the wooden pieces leaning against the wall. He stepped over one of the long sidepieces, tipping the headboard to see the back side of it. "Worst case scenario we have to take a couple of trips, but I don't think anybody's gonna run off with half a bed."

"I am a strong boy, I can handle most things," Sirius said with a crooked grin, as he grabbed the two pieces Remus was referring to. It was probably going to be somewhat of a struggle, but Sirius was used to handling heavier things, so he figured that it should be doable. He just wanted to help Remus as much as humanly possible. It was just a small thing he could do for Remus and he liked feeling useful.
"Can you handle the rest? I want to help as much as I can."
