The moonlight cut a wide swath across the room, spilling onto the bed and illuminating Bernard's pale features. Tonks was tired, but she'd rather just watch him for a bit as he slept. His red-gold lashes flickered against his cheeks as he dreamed, the faint scars standing in sharp relief in the bluish light. She reached out to gently twine her hand around his, letting her eyes finally drift shut.

"Don't go, Nymphadora. Please."

Tonks' eyes flew back open. She looked across the pillow at Bernard, and saw slitted blue eyes, unseeing, still dreaming. Biting her lip, she scooted closer, wrapping an arm around him and whispering in his ear.

"I'm here. I'm not leaving, Bernard."

Bernard relaxed, slightly, and gathered her close in his sleep.

She watched him worriedly for a few moments, and then kissed his jaw before resting her head against his chest.

As she drifted off to sleep, finally, Tonks wished that was always going to be true.
