4. Outside These Prison Walls

Remus smiled sadly at the wizard and whispered: "Yeah Siri, it's me." 

Sirius Black slowly pushed himself to his feet and walked over to the cell bars where Remus stood while his Auror guard stood behind them to allow some privacy. The werewolf bit his lip when he saw ribs profoundly sticking out from the visible skin that was peeking through the dirty and tattered prisoner robes. Remus grabbed the skeletal hand that slipped through the bars and felt Moony howl happily inside him at the contact with his mate after so long.

The haggard wizard whispered "What are you doing here Rem? Is it about Alli?"

Remus realized what Sirius was doing and he answered "I came to talk to you about some things. Not in a bad way, there is nothing wrong with our little one."

Sirius smiled and then looked into the wolf's amber eyes before saying "Tell me about her." 

Remus smiled brightly and told Sirius about his little girl that Remus was all too happy to brag about to her father, who she would hopefully get to meet soon. He finished off by saying "She is such a beautiful little girl Siri. She has your eyes." 

Sirius blinked tears away as he whispered hoarsely "She has my eyes?" 

Remus nodded and answered "She does. She has your silver eyes and they are absolutely darling along with her white-silvery hair."

Sirius bit his lip before asking "Does she know about me?" 

Remus squeezed his bony hand before he answered "Of course Siri. I told her all about you when she was old enough to understand what I was telling her. She knows that she has a father who loves her even if he can't be with her." 

Sirius smiled sadly as a tear slid down his cheek causing Remus' heart to throb as he saw his mate's pain. Remus smiled sadly and whispered "I wish you could have been there Siri. She is so sweet and bright, she is going to be such a kind hearted girl. She started muggle kindergarten today." 

Sirius smiled at that and asked, "She did?" 

Remus nodded and answered "Yeah, she did. I thought it would be safer for her if she grew up in the muggle world and I decided that she should have a somewhat normal childhood and some friends before being shoved into the wizarding world and enrolled her in the elementary school."

Sirius smiled at him and said, "You will have to tell me all about her first day next time you visit."

Remus answered "Of course. I wouldn't dare hold that information from you." 

Sirius smiled at him before asking "What about Prongslet?"

Remus frowned and answered "Dumbledore sent him to Lily's Sister. I have tried sending owls with letters and gifts but I never got an answer of any kind. I have fought the Ministry on everything but it seems that Dumbledore is using his pull to keep me from getting guardianship of our pup." 

Sirius glared at that and asked, "Why would he want Petunia to raise him so badly?"

Remus answered, "My guess...the same reason that he let you get thrown in here without a trial. He wants Harry for something."

Sirius growled "Never will he be allowed near our pup if I get out of here."

Remus answered solemnly "I know Siri, this is why I brought Alastor for help. He is going to help me and Amelia get you out of here."  

The older Auror stepped forward and said "We will get you out of here and back to your family as soon as possible Black. I just need your help finding any evidence, witnesses, or even someone who has memories of that night...after we get yours of course." 

So the werewolf and the Auror spent the rest of their visit getting memories from Sirius of that night, notes on where to find some evidence, and he even revealed to Moody the fact that Peter, James, and him were illegal animagi. 

Before they left Remus said "I will find a way to get our pup back before you come home. I will be back as soon as I can but I have to get going to pick up our cub from school." 

Sirius smiled sadly at that and answered "I know you will Moony. Take care of our cub for me and give her a kiss from her other daddy."

Remus felt a lump form in his throat as he said "I will. I promise." 

Sirius smiled at him and gave his hand a squeeze and whispered "Stay safe Rem. I will see you soon." 

Remus pulled the wizard as close to the bars as possible before kissing him emotionally not caring if anyone saw them or even that Sirius' mentor and their friend was standing behind them. He whispered back "I will. Keep your head up Siri, and don't give in. I will be back as soon as I can. I love you, Sirius Orion Black." 

Sirius grinned brightly at that before wiping a tear from his cheek and answering "I love you too Remus John Lupin." 

Remus glanced at him one more time before reluctantly pulling away from the wizard and stepping away from the cell where the Auror said his own goodbye to one of his favorite Aurors and Trainees. Then the two left with a mission on their mind and heavy hearts.
