Remus let out an almost hopeless groan, but halfway through it his voice cracked into a laugh. "You don't have to remind me," he countered, his voice finally sounding pitiful in a way that could only be theatrical. The worse pain had passed, and Remus was now only left with a numbing prickling of his skin.
With a soft exhale, he finally loosened his grip around Sirius, straightening his posture as he did. It would be a le to say , that Siriusø touch hadnøt had a crucial effect on the tension in his back; this became audible as he, now standing upright, took a deep breath so relieved it almost sounded like the first one in ages. Stepping slightly at a distance that permitted him to move his arms freely - though not wishing to do anything that disturbed Sirius' arm around his wast - Remus ran both hands across his scalp.
Remus' hair was growing longer, but with the tight curl of his hair, he knew it barely permitted him to run his hands through it; instead, he wanted to rub away the last remaining tension in his neck. "One day they're going to dig up my bones and be marveled at how a 20 year old could have the joints of a 200 year old."

Sirius snorted at that, unable to not see the humour in the situation. Sure, it was absolutely awful, but Remus at least seemed to be able to see a little bit of humour in the situation himself, otherwise it would be horribly tragic and not just regular tragic. He kept Remus pulled close to him, enjoying their embrace, even if there was something tragically sad about it. They should not be this troubled at 20, they really shouldn't, but there was a war to be fought and there was nothing they could do about it, other than fight it.
"They won't dig up your 20-year old bones, because you are not going to die at 20," he said in a serious voice, not wanting to Remus to even think like that. Sure, it seemed very bleak right now, but he wouldn't allow them to accept defeat. "You are going to live a long life after we win this war."

Remus enjoyed hearing Sirius laugh; probably more than he enjoyed his almost motherly reassurance. It was tempting to challenge it out loud; that even if they won the war, it wouldn't guarantee ether of them a long life, especially not taking Remus' lycanthropy into consideration. He, however, never allowed himself to say any of that out loud.
With a sigh, Remus' hands found Sirius' shoulders, letting his thumbs press against Sirius' collarbones; His eyes trailed his own hands as he put enough pressure onto them that he could feel the curve of the bone even over the fabric.
"One day," he started again. Even just speaking those two words brought a crooked grin onto his face. "They're going to dig up my bones and be marveled at how a 90 year old could have the joints of a 900 year old."

Sirius grinned at that, liking the tone of that a lot better. They had to believe that they could survive this, otherwise they really didn't stand a chance. It all seemed very bleak right in that instant, but Sirius fully believed that they would be able to make it. He leaned in to place a soft kiss to Remus' cheek, feeling slightly better about how Remus was handling the situation. It was even harder when the full moon was close and Sirius knew that, but he still wanted to make sure that they stayed positive in this.
"That's the spirit," he said with a crooked grin, not minding Remus' hands on his shoulders, feeling pretty good about their embrace in general. Sure, it as mostly to try and make Remus comfortable, but it also helped to comfort himself. He could lose any of his friends at any second, so it helped him to keep them close and just feel that they were there. "I am not going to allow you to die before me."

Even after years of close friendship rooted in a lot of physically displayed affection, Remus' heart still fluttered when Sirius' lips graced his cheek instead of his temple. The distance between the two could hardly be more than an inch or two, yet that distance had a significant difference on the hairs on Remus' neck. He, however, also knew better than to put any further thought into that.
Instead, Remus just hummed out a laugh, his eyes still following the progress of his hands as they continued to back and forth trace the contours of Sirius' chest. "So you get to joke about dying but not me?"
Remus' eyes moved upwards, finally meeting Sirius' eye with the slightest trace of a smile on his lips. "How does that work, exactly?"

Sirius grinned at him, not feeling sorry about being a little juvenile. They had to focus on the positive things after all, so even if Sirius would still joke about dying, he wouldn't allow Remus to; mostly because he knew that Remus meant it a lot more than he ever would. Even the idea of losing Remus was too much for him to bear, so he didn't want to hear anything about it.
"Because I make the rules and that's why I also get to break them," he said with a crooked grin, trying not to think too much of Remus' hands on his chest. They were good friends after all, so it wasn't too unusual for them to be very touchy and entangled like this; however, the idea of either of them dying was making Sirius realise a lot of thing and he was scared what they might mean. All he knew was that he loved Remus and that he wasn't ready to lose him. "That is how that works."

Remus scoffed at that, audibly not very satisfied by that interpretation. As he did, his hands changed motions, gently loosening his grip around Sirius' shoulders, and instead folded out the creased he had created with the flats of his palms.
"How fortunate," he just commented without any desire to go further into it. No matter how much Remus objected against the precautions Sirius took regarding Remus' mental health, he also knew that they stemmed from a genuine place. It was, however, not fun not being allowed to be part of the joke.
Remus was, however, abruptly torn out of that trail of thought.
There was no mistaking the silver hare leaping over the bush. Remus caught a glimpse of it over Sirius' shoulder, moments before it ducked and crossed a flower bed, moving towards the patio door. Despite how much Remus wished it to be a snowshoe hare, he immediately recognized it as Marlene McKinnons comparatively discrete patronus.
"We've got to go," Remus said breathlessly, feeling like he had just received a punch to the gut. Inelegantly, Remus freed himself from Sirius' embrace, moving towards the garden door to let the patrons in.
