Remus was barely blinking. He wasn't really even breathing. All his focus was on mending the straight line down Sirius' arm to stop the bleeding. But it was more than just stitching skin. He'd cut deep, which meant there was internal damage that had to be mended. He'd given himself some pretty deep gashes before and mended them, so he had some confidence, but it was still difficult. If he messed up on himself, that was one thing, but to mess up on Sirius would devastate him.
They might still need to get him up to see Pomfrey after this, but at least he wouldn't bleed out on the way.
When he reached the end of the first cut, it looked as though he'd managed to do it properly, but he was still a nervous wreck. And he still had to do the same for the other one. At least Peter had seemed to pull himself together. It might be temporary, but it was something.
He looked at Peter again, and set Sirius' mended arm down on his leg. "I need this." He loosened and pulled off the other boy's tie, then tied it tight around Sirius' other arm as he'd done with the first. "Okay, just hold this one up the same way you did before. You can do this, Pete." Remus needed him to be strong right now. They both had to be, for Sirius. He pointed his wand at the second cut, and began to mend it as well.
