Author's Note: Hi, everyone! :) This is a quick little side project, which I'm writing for MioneWazlib's "30 Words or Less" Challenge (which, for those of you looking for a major writing challenge, is one the hardest, yet one of the most enjoyable, challenges I've EVER participated in). Heehee.
Basically, I'm given 100 prompts, and I have to write a little story for each prompt, in thirty words or less. It took me a few attempts to get the ball rolling, but once I got started, I just couldn't stop. Remus/Tonks are beautiful together! Anyway, I've got the whole story (ten chapters of ten prompts each) written out already, so updates will be daily! Hope you all like this!

I. Reality Check
There were moments when Remus wondered whether it was all his imagination.
Then, Dora would snap her fingers impatiently, and Remus would sigh in relief.
It was real.
II. Absolutely Alone
He would never forget the day he met her.
It was the same day he stopped spending every single minute of his life absolutely alone.
III. Prince Charming
Prince Charming. Nymphadora didn't believe such a thing could possibly exist.
That was, until she met Remus.
They were both virgins. Neither had a clue what they were doing.
But they supposed they'd done it correctly, because two weeks later, she was pregnant.
V. Good Question
"Dora, how are we going to raise a child?" he croaked one morning, a frenzied glint flickering in his eyes.
She gazed at him. "Good question."
VI. Can you Hear Me?
Sometimes, when he couldn't sleep, he would simply rest his hand on his wife's bulging stomach.
"Can you hear me?" he whispered one night. The baby kicked.
VII. I'm Telling
They jerked apart, both blushing furiously.
The smirk on Ginny's face made their breaths catch in their throats.
"Oh, I'm telling."
VIII. Out of Control
That evening, Remus's anger spiraled out of control.
That evening, he left her.
IX. I Love You
"But, I love you, Remus," she pleaded, gripping his arm tightly.
Oh, how he wished he didn't feel the same way.
It wasn't her love for him that shocked Remus so.
No, it was her willingness to love him that never ceased to catch him off guard.
