"#$&%!"

All eyes turned toward the hallway. Nymphadora Tonks was laying on the ground next to the fallen umbrella stand.

As she sat up and realized what happened, her face and hair turned bright red. She stumbled to her feet, and ran out the door, once again tripping on the umbrella stand.

From the corner of the room, Remus Lupin began to laugh. Soon, everyone else, even Molly, was in hysterics.

Sensing he should do something, Remus, still smiling, walked down the hallway and out the door.

A very red-haired Tonks looked up from her spot on the stairs as she heard the door open.

"Go away," she frowned, still blushing. Remus sat down next to her.

"It was a slip of the tongue. No harm done." said Remus, trying to comfort her. "Not to my dignity." Tonks said with a smile as her hair started to return to it's normal bubblegum pink.

Remus laughed and stood up. He held out his hand. "Coming in?"

Tonks smiled and took his hand, going back inside to face the laughter of her friends.
