Peter just did what Remus had been wanting to do. He wanted to take Sirius by the shoulders and shake him, tell him to stop all this and just lay still and everything would be all right. They were all there for him, they all loved him, and they weren't going to give up on him. It didn't matter what he did or what happened; they were the Marauders, they were never going to give up on each other no matter what. They loved each other, they were each other's strongest pillars of support. Nothing would change that.
But once again, Remus internalized his feelings and just let Peter help Sirius back down onto the bed. "Sirius, you're safe here. You didn't kill Lily. And we're going to get you the help you need to make things right." He moved closer, so that he could place both hands on Sirius' cheeks. "Look at me, Padfoot," he said, as soothingly as he could. "Trust me. Please? Trust me. We'll make it right. But you've got to stop trying to hurt yourself. For me, for all of us. Please, just rest here. I'll stay with you. Just stay here."
