A/N: This is a one-shot fan fic. I got this idea from an email that I got the other day. It had these same sayings and I thought it would go with a one-shot story.

Nymphadora Tonks had a secret. A secret that she didn't want anyone to find out. Especially a certain person. But so much time has gone by since her cousin, Sirius, had died and she wanted to let her secret go.

She had to tell him how she felt. How much she loved him. How she thought about him all the time and how her knees would feel weak everytime she saw him.

But what would he say? How would he react? Would he feel the same way? She had to find out before she told him.

Tonks made her way downstairs to try to find him. She looked in the kitchen and he wasn't there. She looked in the sitting room and found him on the couch reading, as usual. Tonks walked up to him and sat down beside him. He didn't look up from his reading.

It's now or never, thought Tonks. She had to find out if he felt the same way she did. She cleared her throat.

"Remus?" she said.

"Hm?" He didn't take his eyes off the pages of his book.

"Do you like me?"

"No," he answered simply. She sat there stunned.

"Do you think I'm pretty?"

"No." He still didn't take his eyes off his book.

Tonks felt like she was going to burst out crying, but she continued.

"Am I in your heart?"


"Would you cry if I walked away?"

"No." He still didn't look up at her.

Tonks felt her heart shatter. How could he be so casual in telling her that he didn't like her?

"Ok," she whispered and got up. She started walking away when she felt a hand grab her arm. Tonks turned around and saw Remus. He had gotten up and was now inches from her face.

"I don't like you, I love you," he said. "You are not pretty, you are beautiful. You are not in my heart, you are my heart. I would not cry if you walked away, I would die."

Tonks stared into his sparkling eyes. Remus leaned forward and kissed her softly on the lips. When he pulled back, Tonks leaned in by his ear and whispered, "I love you."

A/N: I absolutely love Remus and Tonks together! I thought this would go well with them. Tell me what you think!
