The weekend had been hellish for Tonks. While she wasn't big as a house yet, she was getting uncomfortably large, and sleeping was already becoming an issue. Add in her impending conversation with Remus and the realisation that he had in fact not cheating on Sirius with her, or her with Sirius, and her mind was a mess.
She wanted to forgive him for it, but there had been so much anger behind breaking up that she had a difficult time swallowing it all so quickly. One mulligan, she thought, for kissing George. If he really did value her as a partner and being in the baby's life without the mess of separating--but even if he did say he wanted another go at it, how could she trust that he meant it?
He'd told her. He'd been up front and honest with her about it, and she had to take that into consideration. He could have lied or never mentioned it to her at all, and he hadn't. That meant something, too.
But what if she forgave him and the whole bloody thing happened all over again? What if this was just Remus's way of saying he wanted out, and he was too afraid to tell her now that he knew about the baby?
By the time Monday afternoon came, she was a wreck. She'd been able to hide it for the most part during her classes, and she'd catnapped during lunch, but her nerves were quickly getting the better of her as four o'clock approached. She had no idea how this conversation was going to go, but she did know that the baby's health and welfare came first. Until they had that figured out, there was nothing that was more important.
