This morning I got woken up by Lily and Teddy both jumping on the bed.
“Today’s the day! You’re getting married!” She said.
I smiled instantly. Merlin, today was the day.. I’ve been waiting for this moment since Sirius proposed in 7th year. Teddy jumped in my arms and I hugged him tightly.
“Have you slept well love?” I asked Teddy, remembering how cuddled up we fell asleep.
He nodded with a big smile on face. I kissed both of his cheeks and placed his messy curls.
“Maybe you should go wake up Padda love, we don’t want him to show up at the wedding in pyjama’s!” I said, hugging Teddy once again.
“Okay! Kissie!” Teddy said, making a kissy face.
I gave him a quick kiss and he ran to the door with Lily following him. I colapsed on my bed and smiled to myself. I was nervous but so excited to marry Sirius. I started getting ready and Lily came back with her dress on. She looked breathtakingly beautiful.
“Wow Lily.. You look amazing!” I said, hugging her again.
“Thank you Remus.. Do you mind if I get ready here? I don’t want you to be alone.” She said, her smile still present.
“It’s okay, I actually need help with my hair.. they’re a bit messy and I can’t style them properly.. Can you help me?” I asked.
She placed my curls so they would stay on place all day long. I felt a bit fancy with all those hair products in my curls!
As I was putting on my suit, I heared a knock on the door. Mum and Dad.
“Oh Honey look at you!” Mum said with tears in her eyes.
“Mum please you’re going to make me cry!” I said, hugging her small figure.
“I’m so proud of you my son.” Dad said, joining the hug.
“I love you both..” I whispered.
Teddy then came rushing in with a piece of paper in his small hand.
“Padda is awake!” He yelled, handing me the paper.
“Thank you Teddy. Do you want to go get ready with grandpa?” I asked.
“Okay!” He smiled, taking dad’s hand.
I unfolded the piece of paper and instantly recognized Sirius’ neat handwritting.
“I can’t wait to marry you my love… See you down the aisle.. Sirius xox”
I smiled and hugged the paper to my heart. Sirius was maybe a badboy heartbraker but sometimes he was just as romantic. I folded the paper and placed it into my suit pocket so it could be with me all day long. I couldn’t wait to put it in my memory box at home. I started working on my bow tie but Sirius usualy helps me with it. Mum noticed my strugle and helped me tie it beautifuly and whispered in my ear.
“You know, I always knew you two would end up together. The way you talked about him and the way he looked at you.. it was written in the sky.” She said.
“I love him so much mum.” I smiled.
“Oh honey I know you do. I’m so glad you found someone perfect for you. You found the right man.” She smiled.
She then left to go get her hair done with Lily. I was alone in my room, ready as I’ll ever be. I stared at my reflexion. One of my old scars could be seen on my neck but I didn’t think about it because I knew Sirius loves them. I took out my vows and read them again. Was it too cheesy? I hope not.. Suddently I heared a soft knock in the door. I instanlty recognized the voice.
“Moons?” Sirius asked.
“Pads? Don’t come in here you’ll break the tradition!” I said, running to the door.
“I won’t love.. I won’t.. I just wanted to hear your voice that’s all..” He said.
I leaned my back against the wooden door and closed my eyes, imagining Sirius’ face in my head.
“I’m nervous Pads..” I said.
“It’s just me love.. don’t be nervous..” he said.
“I just want to hold your hand.. It would calm me.” I said.
The door cracked open and his hand peaked in. I took it and squeezed it.
“I can’t wait to see you..” he said.
After a few minutes, James entered and told me it was time. The room we had reserved was actually a rooftop from which we could see the Eiffel tower. It was beautiful. The flowers made it even prettier. Lily was holding her flowers, ready to walk the aisle with Teddy’s hand in hers.
“You can do this Remus.” She smirked.
I took a deep breath and the music started. My heart started pounding. Lily took Teddy’s hand and walked down the aisle to the music. My mum was the one walking me down the aisle. I felt safe with her by my side. She wrapped her arm around mine and smiled. That was it. It was our moment. Sirius’ and I.
I walked down the aisle and the moment I saw Sirius, I felt all my worries go away. He was so handsome. Merlin I was lucky. His black hair neatly placed, his flushed cheeks and his shaky hands. Suddently I just wanted to run and jump in his arms. He was biting his lip and tears were running down his cheeks. James had a big smile on his face and also had his hand on Sirius’ shoulder. Sirius’ eyes never left mine. He wipped his tears away and smiled. When I arrived at the altar, I gave my mum a kiss and Sirius took both of my hands. I looked into his grey eyes and he mouthed me something while the priest talked.
“We gather here to unite these two lovers in marriage..” The priest said.
“You look beautiful.” Sirius mouthed, not caring about the wedding that was going on.
I smiled and blushed.
“I love you” I mouthed back.
To be honest, I wasn’t really listening to the priest either. He was saying some nonsence! I couldn’t stop looking at Sirius. His eyes were still a bit glossy but he looked so handsome. I got woken up from my dreamland when I heared the priest say some important words.
“It is now time for you both to read your vows.” He said, nodding so I could go first.
“Hum.. okay. My dear Sirius, I can’t even put to words how much you mean to me. Believe me, I would write it in the sky, carve it on mountains and scream it on rooftops. Since the day I met you, I had this feeling in my stomach. The feeling that makes you happy. After all these years of me loving you, the feeling is still there. I want it to be there until my heart beats his last beat because I know that my heart will always beat for you. Yesterday you asked me if I thought we were meant to happen.. I would say it’s more than that. We were made for eachother. I love you so much Sirius. I will always love you, to the moon and back…” I said, looking up from my shaking hands holding the paper.
Sirius was crying and smiling at the same time. I wanted to kiss him. To hug him. He wipped his tears away and took his paper out of his pocket, his hands shaking.
“Well, it’ll be hard to top that.. okay..When I was younger.. Before I went to Hogwarts .. I always thought I would hate my life. I thought I would have to live with a pureblood wife.. I didn’t want this life.. But when I saw you Remus, I knew anything was possible. I knew i could be loved and more important, i knew I could be with someone I love. I was always taught that love wasn’t real. That you couldn’t fall in love. But when I saw you I found it hard to believe. Imagining my life without you is painful. You are my whole world Remus. We’ve been through so much.. I love you.. to the moon and back…” he said, tears running down his cheeks.
I was also crying. Merlin I loved him so much. I extended my hand to wipe his tears away which made our family and friends laugh. The priest smiled and continued talking.
“Remus John Lupin, do you take Sirius Orion Black to be your husband? Do you promise to be faithful to him in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and to honor him all the days of your life?” He asked.
I smiled and looked into Sirius’ eyes.
“Sirius Orion Black, do you take Remus John Lupin to be your husband? Do you promise to be faithful to him in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and to honor him all the days of your life?” He repeated.
“I do” Sirius said, looking into my eyes.
“ I can now pronounce you.. Husband and Husband!” The priest laughed. “You may now kiss.”
Sirius layed his hands on my cheeks and crashed his lips on mine. It was the best kissed we ever shared. Our family and friends were all cheering. Teddy ran to us and Sirius picked him up so we could have a family hug.
We spent the night with our friends and family. It was amazing. Everyone was so happy for us. We danced a lot! It was the best night of our lives. James even made a speach using only words with no a’s which was pretty funny to listen to. It was perfect.
When it was getting really late, everyone came back to the hotel. Teddy was asleep in his car seat and it was adorable. James and Lily were going to babysit him for our first night as husbands. James had told us that they would take care of him and we could have fun.
“C'mon we all know you’re going to have some fun.. Soooo we got you two a royal suite!!” James said, smirking.
“Are you insane!!” I said.
“Nope! You two go have fun.” He smirked, giving us the royal suite key.
Sirius and I walked to the room and it was beautiful! The bed was giant! Sirius and I laughed because we always joke about how we can both sleep in a single bed, cuddled up. Just like our Hogwarts times.
“Okay, my dear husband, now we get you out of this suit.” Sirius laughed.
We both undressed slowly. Sirius kissed every inch of my body while my hands touched every inch of his. His broad shoulders were full of marks. So was my neck and collarbone. Our hands tangled in eachothers hair. It was slow and pleasurable. We kissed and kissed and kissed.. It was perfect. Being alone with Sirius made me happy. Plus, he kept calling me “husband” and I couldn’t stop smiling. Once we collapsed on the bed, panting and sweating, Sirius laughed.
“Oh my god..” Sirius said.
“We just had sex for the first time as husbands!” He said.
I just started laughing.
“Merlin you’re so funny!” I giggled.
“C'mere.. I want to cuddle you.” He said, wrapping his arms around me.
“Your vows were beautiful..” i said.
“You think so? Yours made me cry!” He chuckled.
“I love you.” I said, kissing him.
“I love you too baby.”
“Wanna get some sleep?” I asked.
“Yeah.. I’m exhausted.. Goodnight my Husband.” He said, kissing my forehead and then my lips.
“Goodnight my husband.. It’s weird to finally say it.” I chuckled.
“It is. But i can get use to it. It suits you well.” He smiled.
“I love you Sirius.” I said.
“I love you too.”
We fell asleep cuddled into one another. His hands on my bare back and mine on his bare chest. We were united. We were finally married.
