“In a time of great need, your world will coalesce and peace
Or that’s what the Bible said. Calm down, we’re not talking
about the Christian Bible. This bible, the holy writ of modern day romance, is standard
curriculum. And no, it’s not the Kama Sutra. Though you do remember reading
that, an assignment you’d subtly picked up on from your Soulmate Ed teacher.
Right, nothings making sense, but that’s okay.
“Y/N, what’re the quantum specifications of the rocket
launch?” Ms Beamis asks, or, you suppose she did, you really aren’t listening
and you’re definitely sure that the question doesn’t make sense. “Y/N?”
“Like nine.” You mumble, your voice going high and turning
the words into a question that has her lips pursing.
“Like nine. That’s your answer?” She bites out and you duck
a little, nodding, your entire body going hot with a blush. “I don’t have to
tell you you’re wrong, do I?”
“No, Ms.” You mumble, sighing forlornly as she shakes her
head and looks pointedly away from you.
You wondered if now was your time of great struggle. You’d
sure like a smart soulmate because school isn’t making sense anymore.
“Class dismissed!” Ms Beamis announces from the front and
talk starts up, chatting and gabbing all around you, filling your ears.
“Emily totally went down on Greg at Mels kegger.”
“She’s dating Nathan, isn’t she?”
“Exactly, she’s totally crazy. But I totally get it.”
“Emily is totally
a bad girlfriend.” You mutter to yourself as you slip through the door and
silence reigns through the hallway and class behind you.
“What’d Emily do?” Someone whispers to their friend, her
eyes staring at something behind you. Biting your lip, since you aren’t part of
the conversation, you push through the crowds and out onto the lawn.
“Something feels wrong, Momma.” You cringe, scratching the
upper middle of your back doggedly. You just can’t reach it, no matter how you
stretch and twist. Your breath hisses in and out hurriedly, but your Mom doesn’t
move. Her eyes trace your figure worriedly, but she doesn’t touch you, and your
heart beats faster at her lack of reaction. “I- I can’t- Mom.”
“It’s okay, sweetheart.” She promises, chewing the inside of
her cheek and you blink at her, waiting for more, but her lips stay sealed.
“Mom, please.” You plead, unsure what you want from her but
it’s definitely not her getting up and leaving the room. A furious grunt
escapes you at her escape, and you twist again, trying to reach the spot on
your back, a frustrated sob escaping you.
Stalking for the door, you pound up the stairs and into your
room, throwing yourself face down on the bed and whining when the new angle
doesn’t yield better results.
“F*ck.” You whisper to your blankets, trying not to choke as
unfounded panic claws its way up your throat. “Oh, God.”
A scream burns in your chest and you dive for your pillow,
throwing yourself face first into the soft cover as the scream tears from your

But Remus’s life is more complicated than Sirius knows.
Sirius disengaged himself from Remus and took out the ring of library keys he always carried when he did his rounds, searching for the one labeled “periodicals”. Remus stepped behind him, wrapping his arms around his middle and kissing the back of his neck. Sirius shivered again.
Finding the right key at last, he jammed it into the lock, turning until it clicked.
“If anyone wants in here, they’ll just have to find someone else with a key.”
“How long before anyone misses you?” Remus asked.
His hands began to wander up Sirius’s abdomen, and Sirius grabbed them, turning to kiss him again quickly, before Remus’s explorations could reach his bound chest.
“Dunno,” he murmured against Remus’s lips. “Maybe an hour.”
