"The moon loves you, but you don't love her back."
Lupin looked up in surprise. The voice was unfamiliar, and even in the dim light the face was, too.
Her gaze was somehow both distant and intent, and disconcerted he returned to his parchment.
"It's a gift, you know," she continued. "Like a kiss."
He gathered his materials and got up from the table. As he turned to leave, she caught hold of his hand -- gentle, but firm. She bounced lightly into his chair and kissed him.
He half-expected to taste blood but found she tasted oddly like faraway sky.
