Remus took the stairs two at a time up to Nymphadora's flat, unrepentant in his excitement to be paired with her on the mission that would take them to the Continent to assist Hagrid. Perhaps their task would take them long enough that they'd need to secure overnight accommodations. Perhaps he'd get to see just what she looked like when she woke in the morning. Perhaps…

Her hair would fade from the cheerful color she'd chosen that day to the soft brown that is her natural color. I'd be lucky enough to wake early and see her face in the warm pre-dawn light-we'd shared a bed because the summer holiday season made accommodations scarce. I'd toss the heavy quilt aside, allowing the silhouette of her naked body to be seen under the white sheet. My hand would ghost over the velvety skin of her abdomen, my fingers would trace light patterns around her belly button before trailing lower...

He shook his head to clear it of the sort of lascivious image that flashed through his mind more often of late. His hands on her skin, his lips on her body, her hands… Sweet Merlin, he needed to get ahold of his thoughts before he knocked on her door. Thoughts like these had lead him recently to more cold showers than he could remember since adolescence. It certainly wouldn't do to excuse himself to the lavatory to compose himself as soon as she welcomed him inside. Unless she accompanied him…

Bollocks! Focus, old man.

The smile that had rapidly broken across his face when Nmphadora had opened the door faded as quickly as his lingering arousal at the sight of Severus sitting quite comfortably in one of the armchairs. The jealousy he'd tried to temper since overhearing Sirius point out how Nymphadora had been naked in front of Severus during their mission to Malfoy Manor reared its possessive head. Even if she was under a Disllusionment Charm at the time, the thought was still unsettling. Severus seemed to sense exactly what he was feeling and smirked, keeping his eyes locked on Remus' as he rose and maneuvered through Nymphadora's messy flat.

"Lupin."

Remus always strived to keep a level head where Severus Snape was concerned. Some days were infinitely harder than others.


A/N: EEk—I nearly forgot to post this before joining a couple of girlfriends for a rare night out of the house! Here it is, as promised...a Wednesday update. It occurred to me that you all might have thought that "Friends to Lovers" was being updated today and I am so sorry to say it isn't! Stay tuned for that next week. It also occurs to me that I've been terrible about answering reviews lately. I will fix that as soon as I get this guest blog spot for NaNo finished. Enjoy!
