Two days later, Tonks was allowed to leave St. Mungos. Remus, who has insisted on staying with her the whole time, was quite thankful to leave behind the hard wooden chair on which he had been sleeping. They had so much stuff to bring back home, since their friends had surprised them by sending baby clothes and food, that they had to call a cab, once again. Thankfully, it was the same driver as the first time.
But it was when they got home that they had their best surprise. Their office room, in which they kept almost nothing apart from a small desk and a bookcase, had been transformed into a beautiful nursery, all pale and fluffy, filled with wonderful gifts.
When Tonks saw it, tears came to her eyes and she looked at Remus, who was holding their small son and looking at him adoringly. Tonks looked down at their daughter, who was in her own arms, and she kissed her softly on the top of her head.
"Welcome home," she whispered.
It didn't take us long to name the children or to find godparents. We asked Harry and Ginny, who accepted immediately to be the godparents of our small James Sirius, and Hermione and Ron gladly said yes to our request, making them godparents to our darling Lily Molly.
As for Arthur and Molly, we told them to consider themselves as our children's grandparents, as they really were parents to me, and of course from that day on, Molly has been mothering me more than ever, saying she is happy to have a second daughter.
And I'm really happy now… completely happy. I've learned a lot during those nine months of my life. I've learned that life is more important than anything else and that we all must do small sacrifices so that it can go on. And those sacrifices makes us stronger and better. I've also that love can be wonderful, but it can also be the most destructive and dangerous weapon against someone. I've learned to protect my heart, without fully closing it. But the most important thing I have learned is that… you can dream you life. But you must live your dream.
Tonks sighed happily as she put her pencil down and closed the little notebook in front of her. She turned around and smiled. Lily, her long blonde hair dancing as she was clapping her hands, was shrieking with laughter at the sight of her own twin brother who kept changing his nose, ears and hair, turning them into the most ridiculous shape he could imagine to amuse his sister.
Then, Tonks' heard a noise coming from the entrance of the house and got to her feet quickly, smiling from one ear to another as Remus walked through the door of the living room.
"Daddy!" shrieked Lily happily before she rushed to him and jumped in his arms.
"Hey princess," he said, kissing her on the top of her head as he was ruffling James' hair.
A few seconds after Remus arrived, Molly apparated with Ginny.
"Grandma!" said Lily.
"Aunt Ginny!" added James.
They both rushed to the two women and hugged them very tightly. Ginny winked at Tonks before taking James in her arms.
"So little man, do you want to hang out with me and grandma tonight?" she asked, her eyes shining.
Lily looked up at Ginny and tugged on her shirt.
"Can I come too?" she cried, her little face filled with sadness at the thought of being left behind.
Molly laughed and took the small worried girl in her arms.
"Of course you're coming too darling!" she said, tickling the small girl. "We wouldn't dream of leaving you behind!"
"Will I be allowed to hold the baby this time?" she asked hopefully.
"If auntie Hermione says yes, and if the baby isn't sleeping, then maybe you will," said Ginny, smiling.
"So off we go!" said Molly, smiling at Tonks as if she knew something the others didn't.
"Bye mummy!" shouted the twins in harmony.
Tonks blew kisses at her children, smiling, and then Ginny and Molly disapparated with the children.
Remus, who had witnessed the whole thing without saying a word, sat on the couch and looked at Tonks with a questioning look on his face.
"Why do I have the feeling this was all planned?" he asked.
Tonks sat beside him, a fake innocent look plastered on her face.
"Why, I don't know what you mean," she said cheerfully.
Remus stared at her for a minute and then sighed.
"Alright, never mind. How are you feeling today? Better?"
He looked at her worriedly. She had been feeling sick lately, keeping her from sleeping most of the time and giving her a very tired look. And yet now, she was looking at him, her eyes twinkling and shining.
"Much better Remus. I have to tell you something…"
Remus blinked and backed down a bit, doubtful.
"Did you buy those shoes? Cause I told you already Dora, seven pairs of shoes is more than enough for Lily."
"I didn't buy Lily more shoes," said Tonks, laughing.
"A new dress?"
"A new toy for James?"
"No, Remus, I…" she said, starting to feel slightly annoyed.
"A dog?" he said, interrupting her.
"What the… Remus!" she said, rolling her eyes as she started to laugh.
She punched his arm and stuck her tongue out at him.
"I can see you don't want to hear what I want to say," she said, getting up.
He grabbed her by the waist and pulled her back down, sitting her on his knees, kissing her as she laughed.
"Come on Dora, yes I want to know."
"Well… I went to the doctor today, for the twins' appointment, and while I was there, I asked to be examined, just to know why I was feeling sick."
Remus looked at her, trying to work out what she had just said, when it suddenly all became clear to him. A light appeared in his eyes and a small smile on his lips.
She turned to him, her eyes full of stars.
