Sirius just looked at Moony as she talked, trying to take it all in and not get too hit by just how much time had to have passed since he had last seen Moony. To him, it seemed that hardly any time had passed at all, time just seemed to move faster at school, but in front of him was the proof that clearly a lot of time had actually passed.
“I think you look good,” he said with a bright smile, really and genuinely thinking that Moony looked great; broken nose and all.
Unable to hold it in, Sirius diminished the remainder of the distance between them and hugged Moony. Even if it was easy for Sirius to lose track of time at school, he did have moments of missing Moony so terribly, still considering her to be one of his best friends in the entire world.
“And I missed you.”

Moony had to suppress the urge to recoil from the embrace, but found little discomfort in the feeling of Sirius' arms around him. Instead, it made his stomach flip, finding that the embrace had changed with Moony's sudden growth spurt; the last time they had seen each other, Sirius had easily draped himself across Moony's back. It took Moony out of it for a second, the weight of the embrace catching him off guard.
Somewhat hesitantly, Moony returned the embrace. Sirius sudden close proximity invoked several polar different emotions in Moony, still uncertain whether or not he wanted to prolong the embrace or cut it short. Together with Sirius' compliment, Moony felt like his cheeks were on fire.
"I missed you, too," he admitted, quick to let go of Sirius; he took half a step back, out of reach. It really was unfair how easily Sirius managed to fluster Moony, and even more so, how easily Moony melted back into their friendship. Restlessly, he shoved his hands into his pants pockets.
"How're you doing at home?" Moony asked because he cared about Sirius' well being, but equally so to disguise any lingering feelings of abandonment; he wanted Sirius to know he understood that Sirius was staying at school due to his parents, and not Moony himself. At least that was what Moony had told himself. "Is it bad being back?"

There was something undeniable different in their interaction that Sirius couldn’t quite pinpoint. Maybe it was just the fact that it had been so long, so many milestones had passed both of them by and it was difficult to stay the same.
However, Sirius refused to think too much of it, just wanting the time he did get to have with Moony to be the best possible.
He had had a lot to think about in the past couple of weeks, things that made his head spin and made him feel almost sick to his stomach. It was so much easier to just hang out and pretend that it was exactly like the old days.
“It’s terrible,” he said, the smile of his lips lessening as he thought about being in the manor. It was suffocating and if it hadn’t been for Moony, he didn’t even know what he would have done. Sometimes it seemed a lot easier to just run away and never come back.
“My mother hates my hair and keeps telling me every single time she sees me,” he said, running a hand over said hair, which was long and tied in a messy bun, strands of hair escaping from it and framing his face. “Both of them think that my grades suck and that I should stop playing lacrosse to focus on my studies. So you know, same old.”
Sirius really didn’t want to talk about his home life, but he also knew that Moony was the only one he trusted to understand. James did his best, but he didn’t have the same background with him as Moony had.
“Let’s not talk about them. What have you been up to?”

Sirius' little terrible knocked the air out of Moony's lungs. He felt awful on Sirius' behalf, sharing his disappointment in his parents. He had really hoped their behaviour would change when they only saw their son thrice in a year, but it seemed that the tension between them continued to grow even when apart, making Sirius' the target of months worth of unresolved irritation.
At the mention of Sirius' hair, Moony's eyes flickered, though he remained silent. While Moony had always taken an issue with his own hair, enough for him to recently cut it short, it was apparent to him that it didn't translate to Sirius' hair; Moony's heart flipped in his chest whenever Sirius ran a hand through it, often wanting to do so himself. Because of that, he didn't comment on it, even when Sirius was in clear need for encouragement.
"Nothing," he admitted plainly, seeing no point in pretending otherwise. Sirius' departure had left a big void in Moony's life. While he felt no real resentment towards Sirius for leaving, it would also be pointless pretending it had managed to make him more sociable with other peers. "Just been here, really."
Needing to move to ease the lull the topics had left over the interaction, Moony shifted, stepping around Sirius to the broken ladder.
"Haven't had anybody come out here to fix it," he said, wanting it to sound off handed when really it was a shy confession that he still honoured the promises he'd made with Sirius years ago. Moony climbed the ladder undeterred by it's, stepping onto the remaining nobs where the broken steps were bolted to the poles. "Still does the job, though."

Seeing Moony climb up to the hunting post with what remained of the ladder made Sirius smile in a way that took him back to when they were smaller. There was something about this place that always made Sirius feel carefree and happy and he knew that a lot of it had to do with Moony.
It was easy to just be happy and carefree around Moony, because he knew that she would never judge him for anything. She really was his only solace in this godforsaken place and he knew that if it hadn’t been for her, he would have to do something drastic.
“Still does the job yeah,” he said with a crooked grin, as he climbed the ladder as well. It took some manoeuvring but he managed to do it as well, though not with the same ease as Moony seemed to have with it.
Once he managed to get up in the post, he was overwhelmed by a sense of comfort and home. It felt weird to feel at home in an old, abandoned hunting post, but he knew that the post would always feel like a safer place to him than the manor ever would.
He moved to the edge of the post, sitting down with his legs dangling over the edge and feeling at ease.
“I love this place.”

There was something deeply comforting about hearing Sirius speak in present tense. Moony knew with certainty that he had been the only one visiting the hunting post for the last several months, and yet he felt no real sense of entitlement to it; it was still, just as much Sirius' as it was his.
It took him a few moments to finally join Sirius, seating himself by his side. Resting his heel onto the lip of the platform, Moony pulled his knee to his chest. It helped distinguish the space between them, Moony having a greater area of contact with himself than with the few inches of his hip that brushed against Sirius.
"I do, too," he finally replied, the pause being so big it made it come out meeker. Resting his chin onto his knee, Sirius was only a shape at the corner of Moony's field of vision, "It's good to have you back here."

As they were sitting next to each other and got to just take in the woods, no sense of urgency overwhelming either of them, Sirius realised just how much of his experience of being home was tied directly to being together with Moony.
He knew, deep within his heart, that he never would have lasted at home for as long as he had, had it not been for the fact that he had the hunting post and Moony to escape to. It was something he was eternally grateful for and something he knew that he would never be able to express properly just how much it meant to him.
“I am glad to be back here,” he said, weight on the here, as in the hunting post only.

The gentle pacing of the conversation was comforting to Moony. They both seemed to have so much to say it barely even came out; and perhaps that was for the better. There was peace in the silence that fell between them, for Moony understood precisely what Sirius' meant.
Shifting far enough for him to rest his cheek onto his knee, Moony turned to look at Sirius, a smile barely there on his lips. As many changes as Moony saw in his own reflection, he saw in Sirius' profile; he felt certain he could spend hours looking at his friend, trying to track the passing 4 months on the way he had grown into his features just a bit more. "I know."
He considered sharing that his last four months had felt suffocating, his real life becoming increasingly harder and harder to return to. It wasn't the first time Moony had just sat at the hunting post with the sole aim to stop existing. Moony, however, liked it better with Sirius around, finding that he didn't mind existing if Sirius was the only one to witness it.

For a moment, Sirius just allowed the silence of the woods to creep into the hunting post, enjoying the moment of quiet, something that he rarely got at school. He liked just existing around Moony, liking how she seemed to be the only one who truly understood him. Moony never expected much from him and that was a huge part of why Sirius enjoyed her company so much, liking to just get to exist without having to think about what he was doing.
“Have you ever kissed someone, Moony?” Sirius asked suddenly, realising just how many things had passed the by in the months that Sirius had been back at school. He still thought of how it had felt to be kissed by James and how it had triggered something in him that he felt a need to talk about, but he had no idea how to start that conversation.

A question had quite possibly never caught Moony this ill prepared, nothing about their interaction having alluded to the fact that this was the conversation Sirius intended to string up. Immediately feeling his face flush, Moony shifted, eyes leaving Sirius. Instead, he moved far enough for his cheek to brush against the side of his knee, face mostly obscured to Sirius' view. His eyes were deadbolted onto his own shoe, a ringing to his ears.
"Why do you ask?" he countered, his immediate instinct being defensive, though his voice was choked up with embarrassment.
Even while looking away, every ounce of his attention remained on Sirius. Desperately needing to regain his footing, Moony scratched at the nettle stings around his bare ankle, a shot of pain going up his leg. For a brief moment, it was perfect. Then reality once again seeped into his peripheral vision.
Moony really didn't have a clue what the right answer was, going into the conversation blind. He was willing to lie and said that he had, if he thought that was the answer Sirius was hoping for, though he doubted his friend would believe him. Even though there had been many changes over the course of the last few months, Moony doubted Sirius would believe he had managed to make another friend, let alone meet anyone else he'd want to kiss.
When he spoke there was a shyness to his voice, reluctant to speak on it. "I haven't."
