Who: Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks What: After the stress of the day, an unexpected surprise. Where: Their flat in London. When: After the Order meeting. Rating: Low
All things considered, today had been one of the worst days of Tonks's life. Between the time she had been fired and the moment when she'd finally been allowed to Disapparate, she'd been fully aware that all it would take to kill her, Charlie, and the others, was a single flick of a wand. It wasn't her life she was worried about; it was her son's.
Once she was back in the flat, she'd spent the day getting in contact with Ministry members she knew weren't tainted by Death Eater influence. Nothing they hadn't already known had come to light, and out of sheer exhaustion, she'd laid down for a nap before the meeting.
That was when the cramps had started. She'd woken up to one, and after she was sure it wasn't going to happen, she'd went about getting dinner, only to feel another halfway through. And by the time she'd arrived at the meeting, she'd had another two.
She didn't say anything about it as the meeting commenced, and she did her best to ignore it. But by the time it was over and everyone was disbanding, she stepped toward Remus and said quietly, "Are you coming back to the flat?"
