Remus could see that Peter was barely hanging on to hold himself together. That didn't bode well for what Sirius was doing in the dungeon. He was already starting to move when Peter stammered out that Sirius had hurt himself.
He took the stairs two and a time, letting Peter show him which room their best mate was apparently in. They had to get him medical attention. Remus was good at Healing, having done plenty on himself over the years, but if the damage was too extensive he might need aid.
His mind was racing faster than his feet, until he saw Sirius on the floor. Everything stopped. His whole world collapsed in on himself and his heart, just barely beginning to mend from the damage of before, shattered all over again.
And then, Logical-Level-Headed-Remus took over. He had to save Sirius. "Pete, help me. Help me," he said, and dragged the smaller boy over to where Sirius had collapsed. He knelt and immediately turned Sirius over, propping him up into a sitting position. Remus pulled off his own Gryffindor tie and wrapped it tightly around Sirius' upper arm to put pressure on the artery there, and help stop the bleeding. "Hold his arm up above his heart, Peter," he directed, trying to keep Peter together by giving him something to do.
Remus moved to face Sirius then, and lightly pat both sides of his face. "Sirius," he called out. "Padfoot, wake up. It's Remus -- It's Moony," he said. "Open your eyes. Look at me. I'm going to help you, but I need you to open your eyes."
