Proud To Be - Sirius Black's Daughter

Being the daughter of one of the most well known criminals was never a good factor in my life. I never had a father to look up to, to cherish and to love. Just some old photographs and an occasional childhood memory from Remus. But the day I met him, though I had already known he was innocent, that was the day I saw him for what he truly was. And I could honestly say that I was proud to be a Black.

Athena's POV

"That... Wasn't that hard." I said, walking out of my last exam, which happened to be Defence Against the Dark Arts. Fred ran up to me, smiling.

"How'd you do?"

"Good, I think." I'm said, kissing him on the cheek. "You?" I asked.

"Okay. I don't think I failed," he told me. I laughed.

"That's good, I'm glad. I can't believe this year is almost over, though. It's seems as though it just started." I sighed and leaned into his side willingly, letting him support my weight.

"You just don't want to leave your super amazing and gorgeous boyfriend, that's all." He shrugged and I rolled my eyes.

"Sure, sure."

"Athena!" George called from behind me, running up to us. "What in the bloody hell are you doing?" He asked.

"I'm walking back to the common room with Fred... why?"

"He's not Fred, I am!" He exclaimed. I laughed under my breath, barely noticeable and decided to play along. After all, I knew for sure I was with the right twin.

"Oh my... I'm so sorry! I didn't mean... Please forgive me!" I exclaim, breaking down into fake sobs. I took a quick look at George, who looked completely dumbfounded and frankly, a little scared.

"Uh... Athena?" He asked, but I continued with my fake act. "Athena?" He asked again. I didn't answer. "We were only joking, I'm George!" He exclaims, finally.

I smirk and wipe my fake tears, composing myself easily. "I know. But don't think you can ever prank me, I know everything. Especially who my boyfriend is." I said, pointing at him. He looked astounded that I could fake cry so convincingly, but I just walked back to the common room without them.


"Shut up." I muttered. Fred continues making weird noises. "Fred, seriously. I'm trying to read." I sigh.

"Why are you even reading? I mean, the OWLs are over, you don't need to study." He said.

"I'm not studying. It's called reading for leisure, try it sometime." I rolled my eyes.

"Do something other than read. Pleaseeee," he begs. I groan and close my book and set it down.

"What would you like to do, Fred?"

"I dunno," he shrugs.

"You know what I haven't checked in a while?" I asked him. He nodded his head as to ask me 'what'. "The map." I said, reaching over my boyfriend and over to where I usually kept the Marauders Map. "I solemnly swear I'm up to no good." I said.

The map slowly began to reveal Hogwarts and exactly where everyone that was on its property's whereabouts. I saw dad roaming around the Forbidden Forest. That's nothing new. I saw Remus in his office and Snape in his. Dumbledore wasn't anywhere to be seen, though. I frowned as I saw Harry, Hermione and Ron moving towards Hagrid's hut, remembering today was Buckbeak's execution.

I looked up and stared at Fred for a moment. He was staring off into space with the most adorable look on his face. His lips were slightly parted and the corners were turned up into a smile. I couldn't help but to lean over and kiss him. He was just too perfect. But the downfall of that, is when I start kissing Fred, he hates to part with me. So when we finally broke apart, minutes later, I took a look at the map and saw something I never thought I'd see.

"PETER!" I screamed, pointing to the map that showed Peter Pettigrew in Hagrid's hut with the other three. I crawled and tripped over Fred, in attempt to get out of the bed. "Remus needs to see this!" I spluttered, running as fast as I could to where my godfather sat in his office.

I nearly broke down the door, but other than that I made it there without any other incident, and I checked to see if Peter was still there. And he was.

"Athena! What is the matter?" He asked, astounded.

"Map... Look. Now," I panted, giving him the piece of parchment so he could see himself.

"Where am I supposed-" I cut him off by pointing at the now moving dot that read the name of his backstabbing old friend.

"My god... Athena. I need to go. And before you ask, no you cannot come. If Snape comes, tell him I'll be back later. Or anyone, really. Act like nothing is wrong and I promise I'll be back." He said in a rush, jumping out of his seat.

"You promise you'll be back?" I asked. He nodded. "Be safe. I love you." I say, pulling him into a hug. "And since I can't come, tell dad I love him too." I told him, smiling. He nodded, then ran out, me following not far behind. But of course, then, I didn't realize I had forgotten the Marauders Map, which was still showing everything happening in Hogwarts. And when I went back to get it, it was already gone.

I frantically searched around in hopes that it had just fallen on the ground, but no such luck. It was gone. Somebody must have took it, and now I have no idea where it went. I jogged back to the Gryffindor tower with the fact I was stupid enough to lose the map weighing on my mind.

I walked up to the boys dormitories and collapses on Fred's bed next to him. "What happened?" He asked questioningly.

"Nothing happened." I shrugged, trying to avoid talking about it.

"You know you can't lie to me, Athena." He said, grabbing my hand.

I sighed and began to descend into the story of what happened with Remus and ended with me losing the Marauders Map. "You know Remus may have came back for it, you didn't necessarily lose it." Fred pointed out.

"Probably not. He seemed to know exactly where they were going to go. I can't believe I was stupid enough to leave it there." I groaned.

"Hey, stop it. It's the person who took it's fault. Not yours." He told me and I shrugged, not really believing him.

"You're not going to sleep tonight, are you?" He asked me. I shook my head.

"How could I? I need to be ready if anyone needs me. Plus, tonight there's a high chance someone might." I said slowly.

"I know, love, but-"

"Fred, I might lose what I have left of my family tonight, and that cannot happen. I would do anything in my will to make sure it doesn't. So if you please..." I sighed.

"Right... Sorry. But I'm going to sleep." He said, pulling me closer to him.

"You do just that, Fred." I said softly, running a hand through his hair.

"And Athena,"


"Everything will be okay, I promise you."
