Sirius knew Marlene hated to be watched. Still,he never bothered to leave her be while she was concentrated on doing something and even if he tried to keep some distance from her and focus on doing something else, his eyes would always find their way back to her, eventually.

It was one of those nights. He was leaning on the kitchen’s door frame with crossed arms while he watched her cooking dinner.
