Chapter Seven: One Week

Helena woke up seven days later, a ray of sunshine dancing across her face. She inhaled deeply, the scent of roses and jasmine filling her lungs. Wait... Roses? Jasmine? Helena opened her eyes and saw with shock that her bed and the ground around it was covered in flower petals, their sweet perfume mingling with the air. Helena jumped out of bed and saw that the petals made a trail toward the door and down the stairs.

Helena followed the trail cautiously, going down one step at a time. She peeked around the door and saw that most of the house was gathered around the table that Helena usually occupied with some of her quidditch players when they did homework before practices. She walked toward it, eyeing the smiles and grins from her housemates. She pushed her way through the crowd and gasped when she saw an envelope floating just above her head.

Helena grabbed it cautiously, and opened it daintily, smiling as she saw Remus' handwriting throughout the parchment she was holding. She smiled as she read the letter, loving how romantic Remus was.

My life is brilliant.

My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the train.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'm so in love with you.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Fucking high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'm so in love with you.

You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I am so in love with you.

Helena, I wrote that for you. Since we have been together all I think of is you. And all that I want to do is be with you. I hope that you've enjoyed these past seven days as much as I have. Happy one week, Love. -Remus

P.S. I hope you liked the flowers. I might have went a little over board.

Helena smiled as she finished the letter, and rushed up the stairs to change. When she was done she nearly flew down to the Great Hall, searching for her boyfriend the entire way there. When she entered, she saw her fiery haired friend talking softly to a young man with brown hair. Helena silently creeped behind him, and pressed her finger to her lips when Lily looked up at her. Lily smiled as Helena cupped her hands over Remus' eyes. Remus grinned, smelling his girlfriend's lavender lotion.

He smiled as Helena kissed him below the ear, but nearly jumped out of his skin when he heard Sirius whisper in his ear, "You're so cute!"

Remus jumped up and turned to see a laughing Helena and a hysterical Sirius. He pouted a little, knowing that was Helena's weakness. She stopped laughing and went up to her boyfriend, kissing the tip of his nose before hugging him. He brought his lips down to her and placed a tender kiss on her forehead, before she reached up and brought their lips together. He smiled as he heard his friends and fellow Gryffindors make kissy noises and gagging sounds, but he just continued to kiss his girl.

Helena pulled away and kissed Remus' cheek, "The letter was amazing Remus. And I did love the flowers."

Helena knew that the fact that he chose roses and jasmine wasn't a coincidence. She had told him how her mother died, but left out the part about becoming a werewolf. She just told him it was a wolf with rabies that had gotten her mother. Helena knew that she couldn't lie to him, at least, not a lot. She was comfortable telling him things. He actually listened to what she said instead of insisting that all they do was kiss. And shag. But they hadn't gotten there yet.

Remus smiled and pecked her cheek, "I wrote that before we even got together. The song I mean." he whispered in her ear, sending chills down her back.

She smiled and kissed her boyfriend's temple before sitting down and helping herself to some food. He sat down next to her and ate as well, their hands twined together. After a long breakfast and even longer classes Helena and Remus sat together by the lake; Helena on Remus' lap as they watched the sun set.

Helena rested her head on his shoulder, sighing as the colors washed over the horizon. Remus smiled and pulled her closer, kissing the top of her head. They sat there for a while just staring at the sky until the sun was completely set and the sickle moon was half way into the dark twilight. Helena looked over and kissed Remus lightly on the lips. But was pulled back soon after she pulled away.

They deepened the kiss and smiled afterwards, their foreheads together as they breathed in and out slowly. Helena smiled as a small package floated toward her and Remus. He looked at her with a raised brow but she just shrugged. The package fell on her lap and Remus grabbed it and opened it to find...

"Five pounds of Honeydukes chocolate!" he practically screamed.

"Thought I would help you stock up since the next Hogsmede trip is in two months." Helena responded before Remus pulled her back to him and captured her lips.

Helena smiled and then grinned as her boyfriend tore open the package and snapped a chunk of the creamy goodness off and bit into it. He had such a cute dreamy look on his face that Helena couldn't surpress her giggles. He was so weird... but in an adorable, gorgeous, god-like way. Remus looked up and blushed, before he gave Helena another kiss, but it was softer and more controlled now that he had his chocolate in his hand.

Helena smiled and sighed as she rested her head on his shoulder and cuddled closer to him. Remus wrapped his arms around his girlfriend and smiled thinking of how lucky he was to have her. And then thinking of when he would have to break up with her and possibly never be this close to her again. Damn his "situation". When he's finally happy he realizes that it won't last forever.

Meanwhile Helena was thinking along those same lines. How could she feel so much for this one man, and only have been with him for a week? Even when she hooks up with guys and has an amazing shag for only one night she's never felt like this. It scared her. And she loved it. Helena kissed Remus' neck several times earning her a groan that she knew only too well. She was turning him on.

She grinned and kept going, only to be stopped by Remus. She looked at him questioningly, but he just blushed and kissed her forehead.

"Lets wait." he said, brushing a peice of hair away from her eyes.

Helena smiled and nodded, "I don't like shagging in the forest anyway. Sticks get in my hair." She laughed at Remus' shocked face, "I'm kidding Love! Just kidding!"

Remus' face relaxed and he smiled back bashfully, "I love you Helena." he whispered.

Helena looked up at Remus shocked and then smiled too, "I love you too Remus. I love you so much."

They sat by the lake until it was twenty minutes until curfew. They slowly walked back to their dormitories, hands twined together and identical smiles on their faces. They shared a kiss by Helena's common room before they seperated, waiting for the sunrise and the next time they would be in each others arms.

A/N: the song written in this chapter is "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt. I don't own the song and I didn't write it. I did tweek it a little so it would make sense though. Sorry James. This is really fluffy. At least for me. It kind of bothers me, but I suppose some people like fluff, so here it is. Hope you like.
