The Dark Mark 1655

hakkais_shadowJan. 1st, 2005 01:02 pm

Remus blushed faintly, at first uncomfortable being pulled down onto the larger man's lap. This was something he was very much not used to, the scents of love...and arousal....filling his sensitive nostrils. In wolf form he never would have allowed such submission, for he was Alpha...and yet, in human form this felt right, the way it *should* be. The deepening of the pirate captain's voice sent shivers down the golden-eyed man's spine and he leaned against Severus even more closely, seeking the warmth of the other man's body.

"I have never been this happy, Sev...." Remus whispered, voice somewhat muffled as he spoke against the black-haired man's chest. "Even at Hogwarts' as a youth I felt something was missing, some part of me not complete. That missing part has been filled by you....and by Harry....It does not matter what you are or what your past contains, for it is exactly that: the past. All that I ask is that you do not kill others for me again. I can see that it hurts you, even if you will not admit it. I don't want to ever cause you that kind of pain....." The werewolf's slender frame melted against Severus', that new, cloying scent that the pirate had smelled slowly but surely growing stronger.

Severus sighed in contentment, his arms subconciously tightening round the lithe body of the brown-haired man he was holding. Unlike the harsh pirate captain, Remus needed so little to be happy, which made Severus more determined than ever to make sure that Remus would have the world at his feet, no matter who the captain had to kill, or what ships he would have to plunder. Remus would never have to want for anything again, nor would he ever again know the pain of the suffering he had been through. Drawing Remus over to the bed now, Severus sat down and gently pulled Remus down onto his lap. He again gave the werewolf a soft kiss on the lips, his arms encircling the slight man and bringing him close.

'I don't think I will ever get enough of having you next to me, Remus,' he said quietly as he inhaled the scents of the man. Severus was startled when he was able to pick up a whole new range of scents from Remus, including one that made his own body respond in not such a subtle way. 'You smell so different now,' he said, his silky voice deepening from the emotions he was feeling. 'Before there was always fear, sadness, even anger ... but not now ...' he said and looked Remus into the eyes.

'Tell me, Remus, I must know this ... I have sailed all over the world, taken ship after ship, killed man after man to find you so that I could make you mine ... so that I could care for you ... love you ... the way you were meant to be. Even though I have seen in that Mirror that we belong together, that destiny led me to you ... tell me this is all real? That my love for you is not in vain?' he asked with a hitch of unsuriety in his voice. 'Tell me that I have brought you happiness, Remus, despite who and what I am?'

Remus had arrived on the ship and retired to the Captain's cabin, the day's events fatiguing the werewolf, emotionally instead of physically. Reuniting with Sirius, returning to Hogwarts'......and especially the Mirror, which gave him a glimpse into a future that was possible....a future in which Severus Snape played an integral part. It was still a frightening, uneasy thought, having someone love him in such a way.....And yet exciting as well, a dream come true. Severus wasn't the hard, cold man he'd first believed him to be, but someone like himself, someone who hid his true self beneath the many complex layers he presented to the rest of the world. However, the love and desire in the black-haired captain's eyes was more than evident....and it was directed at him, meant for him alone....

Clad in a plain white linen shirt and brown trousers, barefoot, his sandy hair escaping the careful queue that he'd secured it in, the golden-eyed man stared out the window at the setting sun, the red orb casting brilliant colours onto the rippling water. It was so beautiful, so peaceful here....As strong arms slipped around his narrow waist, Remus was pulled from his self-imposed trance, the Captain's cologne tickling his heightened sense of smell. "It's just the reflection of the setting sun, Sev.....it makes everything beautiful." He had never called the other man by the nickname before, at least not aloud. However, he realized he had been calling the other man this in his thoughts for weeks now and it felt good to say it out loud. Remy felt his knees weaken a little, a soft sigh escape his lips as the Captain kissed him. This kiss felt different and yet so very right, like it was supposed to be this way. "I do not need anything...." he murmured as the kiss ended, then added in the softest, shyest whisper, "just you here with me....if you don't mind."

Severus was nearly bursting inside at the smile on Remus' face. In that one moment of time the staid, stoical pirate felt more at peace with his life than he had ever felt. If before this he had doubted for one moment that he his quest to find and capture the werewolf had been in vain, those doubts erased in the small, simple smile. For the first time in his life he felt love - not that he didn't love Remus already, he did - but now he felt a love that went beyond anything he could reason. It was love in it's purest form; a love that he would spent a lifetime holding onto and cherishing, and proving to the slight man in front of him.

The look in Remus' eyes spoke volumes, and it stirred not just his body, but his mind and soul. Much as right now he wanted to sweep Remus into his arms and carry him back to their cabin and make love to Remus until they couldn't move anymore, there was still too much to do yet. With only a few days until the next moon he had to brew more of his special elixer, let alone it would take a good day and half to get to the small island off the coast of East Africa that he wanted to get to. He had another reason for going to the island besides the change, but right now wasn't the time for that.

Kissing Remus on the forehead he took his hand. 'It is not the fur I am worried about, though the fleas I think we can do with out eh?' he grinned.

'Well I for one can't wait to see you all back again,' Kay smiled and gave Harry a hug. 'It'll be fun to catch you up on your magic, Remus, not to mention you all better be here in time for my son's birth. After all, it wouldn't look good if his Godfathers' weren't here right?' she grinned and then poked Sirius in the ribs.

'Kay, honestly!' he muttered, rubbing at the spot where she poked him then turned to look at Remus and Severus. 'Err, yeah, she's got a point there mates,' Sirius nodded then stepped over to Remus and put his hand on Remus' shoulder. 'I'll owl you some things I think you can use to catch up all right? You've missed a lot, but I remember you were always pretty smart in school, so you shouldn't have a problem with it. It'll be basic stuff too, so even Snape shouldn't have problems with it.'

'Thanks for you're vote of confidence, Black,' Severus said dryly.

'Now, now you two, you promised to be civil,' Kay intervened and poked Sirius again. 'Now go on, all of you, you've got a ship to catch,' she smiled and gave Harry, Severus, and Remus a hug.

'We'll see you soon Uncle Sirius and Aunt Kayleigh! I'll write!' Harry said waving as Severus started to led them all back to the Dark Mark.

As they walked the short trip back to the pier Severus couldn't believe how well things had gone. Even though it meant being beholden to Black, he could live with that since he knew it would make Harry and Remus happy. When they got on board he dropped Remus back at their cabin, Harry ran off to do his duties, and he barked out some quick orders to set sail to the island. When he was sure that everything was taken care of and they were finally on their way he returned to the master cabin, anxious now to get back to Remus.

When he walked in and saw Remus standing at the window, the setting sun highlighting the werewolf's hair like a halo, his breath caught in his throat. A surge of possessiveness came over him and walking over to Remus he pulled the slender man into his arms, brushing back a lock of straying hair behind his ear. 'You have no idea how beautiful you are, Remus.I would kill the Gods themselves if they tried to take you from me,' he said in a hitched breath, his fingers gently trailing down Remus' cheek.

Then he leant in and kissed Remus on the lips, his kiss filled with the same possessiveness and passion that was in his heart, yet he didn't want to rush things either. Pulling back he looked down at his lover, though he was still unwilling to let him go yet. 'I will have to start brewing your potion after nightfall so I will be occupied for a while. Is there anything I can do for you in until then though?'

Remus felt tears beginning to form in his eyes and brushed them away, not wanting the others to see. It was everything he'd ever wanted, ever dreamed of...all in this room right now. Friends...and family, and no one was afraid of him. The child in his arms wanted him, Severus wanted him.... "I'd like it very much if you would call me that, Harry..." Remus answered softly, the pleasure evident in his voice. "And I will try to teach you what I know about magic, although I know it is woefully inadequate. We might have to come back here fairly often so Sirius can refresh me on what I missed after I had to leave the school." He looked up to meet Sirius' grey eyes. "If that would be alright with the two of you, that is...."

Remus then turned to Severus, giving the other man a smile meant for him alone, shy but yet bearing the glimmer of a promise. "I think we should be going, though, shouldn't we? It may take awhile to get to this place you are talking about....and it would not be good to have me on board in furry form. I probably shed terribly." It was the first time Remus had ever joked about being a werewolf, a definite change from the melancholy nature he usually bore....and a sign of the gradual changes to come.

Severus sighed deeply, grateful to have this wonderful man as a part of his life. 'Thank you,' he said softly, 'for understanding me. I am not a man that such words like ... love ... come easily to, and with you, Remus, that word is not even enough to express what I feel for you.'

Looking deep into Remus' golden eyes he smiled hesitantly. 'I know that what I am and how I survive will not be easy for you. I am a pirate, bloodshed and pain is my nature, but it is I who have been in pain all these years, because I have felt so inadequate. I want my son to care for me, I just am not very good at knowing how to do that,' he sighed. 'Teach me to not be afraid to love, Remus. I will give you the world, you have earned it.'

He then turned to Sirius and Kayleigh. 'I think it is time for us to take our leave. We have a world waiting for us.'

'Of course,' Kayleigh smiled. Sirius and Kayleigh took Severus and Remus by the arms then apparated back to their flat.

'You're back!' Harry said happily and ran up to everyone. 'I was getting worried, you took forever!'

'Yup, we're safe and sound, Harry-boy,' Sirius chuckled and ruffled Harry's hair. 'Got everything together then? Time you and you're Pa went home.'

'Awww, so soon?' Harry pouted and turned to Severus. 'Can't we stay a little longer?'

'We will be back again, Harry, I promise you that, but we do have to go. The full moon will be in a week from now, and I have a spot in mind that I want to be at before that time,' Severus said.

'We will come back though? You mean it? Promise, Fa-err Captain Snape?' Harry said hopefully.

Severus looked at Remus for a moment then took Harry by the hand. 'Yes ... son ... I promise,' he smiled and also took Remus' hand in his. 'I think England will be a regular stop from now on, and you may see you're Uncle and Aunt whenever you want. And from now on you can call me ... Father ...'

Harry stared at Severus in shock. 'You ... you mean that? I really can do all that?'

Severus smiled and nodded. 'I mean that.'

'Is he coming with us too?' Harry said looking at Remus.

'Yes, he will be staying with us,' Severus asked. 'Remus is very special to me, as I know he is to you as well. Think of him as,' he said and turned to look at Remus, 'as a second father even. Would you like that, Harry?'

'Oh boy, yes I would!' Harry said and went over to give Remus a giant hug. 'This day just can't get better! I've got new presents, a new Auntie, and Father's happy too!' he said and turned towards Remus. 'You'll get to show me all those neat magic things now right? And I can show you Egypt and Greece and everywhere. We'll have loads of fun!' he said and turned towards Sirius.

'You see, Uncle Siruis, you said one day I'd be really happy again, and now I am! I wished for a family again after Mama died, and I got one again, I really really did! We're going to have grand fun, Da, you'll see,' he said turning towards Remus. 'Oh ... umm ... is it all right ... I mean... since you and Father are together now ... well ... can I call you Da now?'

Remus shook his head. "I do not need to be treated as a prince, Severus, just as a man. I do not know which is worse: being treated like the werewolf that I am or like the slave that I had become. For no matter what they say, indentured servitude is simply a pretty way of saying slavery." He closed his eyes and shuddered. "I would rather die than face that again. I know there are kind muggles out there, but I met very few of them in my years in that world." Remus looked at Sirius, golden eyes meeting grey, then caught the glance of his wife. Finally he turned to the man who held him so carefully. "I would never try to change you, Severus...I know how futile it is to change yourself into something you are not. However, I know that you are more than you think you are. Looking at Harry proves this to me. Your son is a wonderful, brilliant boy and he loves you more than you realize. Just love him back....and perhaps show him a little more of the love that I know you feel for him. That's all Harry really wants....and all that I ask for myself as well."

Severus understood what Remus was saying, all too well for that matter. It was time to admit to his lover, and his new allies, a truth that he had kept buried for quite some time. Holding Remus' hand tightly he sighed. 'I am no stranger to pain and suffering, you know that,' he said quietly, looking Remus in the eyes. 'My father beat me daily. He would say it was to strengthen me, to teach me, to make me tolerant for the life I would one day lead.'

'It was for that reason that when Harry was born I would leave him and Lily for so long. I was afraid, so afraid, that I too would do the same to my son,' he said then looked at Sirius. 'I knew that you would do what I could not ... take care of Lily and our son far better than I could. I could not blame Lily for taking you to her bed, in fact, I told her to.'

Sirius was stunned by those words. 'You ... you wanted us to be together? Are you joking, Snape?'

'I do not joke, Black,' Severus said with a distainful sniff. 'At first, I almost hoped Harry was your son and not mine. It would have relieved me of the burdens I was afraid to bear.'

'But he is your son, Severus,' Kayleigh said softly. 'And I think you've done a fine job raising him since Lily's death.'

Severus shook his head and sighed heavily. 'I wish I was, but I am not. I am no role model, Kayleigh, not for him, nor for any child. Harry is lonely. He misses his mother, and I cannot give him all that he needs, but what I cannot give him I know you can, Remus,' he said and turned to look at Remus once more.

'I am a killer, a thief, a hated man. To change me would be difficult, and I warn you now, Remus, should you come with me you will have to adapt to my way of life. But I want you to know, in fact I swear to you on my own life, that I will do everything and anything in my power, to treat you like a prince. And I think having a child with you would be wonderful,' he said softly and kissed Remus' hand.

'I do not think you could hurt a child of ours any more than you would me. You did not hurt me on Cat Island, you gave me your mark, something more valuable than all the treasures I own, and thanks to my brew you will never hurt anyone. In fact, the only thing you could ever do to hurt me, Remus Lupin, would be to not want me anymore ... and I will pray that day shall never come ...'

Remus relaxed in the captain's embrace, feeling the eyes of the other three upon him...and yet he didn't feel uncomfortable at all. "I would be honored to be a godparent," he murmured in his characteristic soft voice. "I do not know if I would be any good at it, as I have not had the pleasure of being around many children, nor do I feel my advice is the best to give any young wizard-to-be, but I would like to try." The second part of Severus' question made the golden-eyed werewolf flush, burying his head against the taller man's shoulder. "As to having children myself...it is something I've always dreamed of but didn't think was possible." He trembled faintly, for even though his return to the world of magic had been smooth so far, Remus bore many emotional scars that would take quite some time to heal. He bared his soul to these three, who he trusted more than anyone else. "I'm afraid.....I'm afraid I'll hurt my children...."
