A young pink-haired witch bounded up the walk to a small house in the suburbs. Getting closer to the house she noticed a body passed out in a shrub. "What the-?" the witch said to herself as she walked over to inspect the body.

It was a man lying in the shrubs. He was passed out cold. He looked to be around the same age as the witch's cousin, whom she was going to visit. He had a scar-torn face and sandy brown hair. His clothing was worn and tattered. Despite all of this the witch couldn't help but to think that there was something sophisticated about his looks…something…handsome.

Deciding it was best to let her cousin inspect the man, she lifted him up (he was very light) and carried him to the door. She knocked twice and the door opened. A sun-tanned man with long, straight dark hair and a warm smile greeted her, "Tonks, wha- who is that!?"

"I dunno, Sirius. I found him in your hedge," she replied.

"Bring him in. Lemme see him." Sirius instructed.

Doing as she was told, Tonks carried the man into Sirius's house and gently layed him on the couch. "Moony," Sirius whispered, looking at the man. "What?" Tonks questioned. "Moony- er- Remus Lupin. He's a friend of mine from Hogwarts." "Oh."

30 Minutes Later

Remus Lupin opened his eyes and squinted as they adjusted to the light. He looked around, trying to figure out where he was when a familiar voice called out, "Oi, Moony!" "Padfoot?" Remus called, looking for his friend. Sirius appeared, leaning over the back of the couch Remus lay on.

"What do you think you're doing sleeping in my yard?"

"Excuse me?"

"Tonks had to carry you in-"


"My cousin…Speaking of whom."

Remus turned to see a young witch with bubblegum pink hair entered the room carring a cup of tea. The witch continued toward Sirius when her foot hitched on something causing her to fall and the tea to fly through the air. Sirius waved his wand and the tea landed safely on a table, Tonks however landed with a THUD! on top of Remus. Both of them blushed as they looked at each other, inches apart.

"Moony, I'd like you to meet my cousin, Nymphadora Tonks. Tonks, I'd like you to meet one of my best mates, Remus Lupin," Sirius said in a laughing tone.

"Nice to meet you, Remus," Tonks said as she attempted to climb off of Remus only to fall back onto him.

"Likewise, Nymphadora," Remus laughed as he tried, to no avail, to help her up.

"Don't call me that," she growled.

"Why not? I think it's a beautiful name, suits you very well," Remus grinned.

Tonks blushed so hard that her hair turned red.

"So you're a metamorphmagus? How intriguing," Remus chuckled.

"…Yeah…well…" Tonks mumbled as she stood up, blushing redder than she had ever before.

"Alright," Sirius broke in to the awkwardness, "who's ready to eat?"
