Lean On Me - Sequel to Proud To Be

In Athena Black's sixth year, she faces so much more things since previous years. With her father an escaped convict of Azkaban, and her godfather a werewolf, it brings much more trouble than you'd think. So when things start to get rough, her long time best friend and boyfriend, Fred Weasley, is more than willing to be there, so she can lean on him if in need.

Athena's POV

I stepped into the Great Hall the next morning, not really ready to face the day and everyone here. But I knew I had to eventually, and I'd rather sooner than later. I sat down at my usual seat beside Fred and he looked over to me. I felt terrible because he was going through the same thing I was, yet I was acting like a stuck up bitch.

"Morning," he smiled and wrapped an arm around my shoulder.

"Good morning," I replied, leaning into his side and resting my head on his shoulder.

"Sleep well?" I shrugged.

"I guess. What about you?"

"Not to bad. It would've been better if you had've been with me." He smiled.

"Sure," I teased, giving him a small, tired smile. I looked up to the table that sat all of my professors. McGonagall looked at me and smiled a look of sympathy. I couldn't have wanted to dig myself a hole and disappear more than I did now.

"So everyone knows, now?" I asked hotly.

"Well, sort of-"

"Why? Is it everyone's business to know what happens in our life?" I asked, standing up.

"Athena, sit down." He says quietly. "People are staring."

"Let them. Do not tell me to sit down." I warned.

"Please," he pleaded.

"How does everyone know, Fred?"

"News is easily spread at Hogwarts, Athena," he said.

"Well for people to know you must've told someone," I said. "And I don't know about you, but I'd rather not have everyone know what the fuck is happening in my life. This isn't a fucking gossip magazine," I spat and turned on my heel, leaving the Great Hall before I even got the chance to eat anything.


I laid in my bed, tears still running down my face. It had been close to two hours since I left Fred probably confused and upset in the Great Hall. Why do I mess everything up?

"Athena?" I heard a voice speak up from the door. I looked up quickly, relived to see the face of Angelina.


"Uh, Fred's in the common room. I think he wants to talk to you..." She said. swaying back and fourth on her feet.

"Oh. Alright, thank you." I gave her a small smile and stepped out of my bed, straightening myself out. If he wants to talk to me, there's two possible outcomes, I made everything worse, and he wants to break up with me, or I haven't really messed up and he just wants to work this out. Yeah. I'm totally betting on the first one.

I walked down the stairs and I saw Fred standing there, waiting for me, I'm guessing.

"I'm sorry," We spoke at the same time, causing us both to Grin.

"What are you sorry for? It was my fault." I said, moving closer and hugging him.

"No, it was mine. I should've known you wouldn't have wanted everyone to know. At least not yet," He told me.

"I shouldn't have gotten so upset. I'm really sorry." I said.

"We were both wrong, so lets leave it there, shall we?" He smiled.

"We shall," I smiled and kissed him.


"Come to bed,"


"Athena, please?" Fred begged.

"I need to finish this," I said, Trying to finish the homework we were given. The teachers tried not to let me do it, but I wasn't having any of it. Sure, a terrible thing happened to us, but terrible things happen all the time. I didn't want to be treated any differently. I was surprised, Even Snape wasn't as terrible as usual.

"I would've taken the no homework route," Fred admits and i roll my eyes.

"We all know that."

"I just want to cuddle you," He pouted and I flicked him on the nose.

"Give me twenty minutes."

"But I don't want to wait twenty minutes!" He exclaimed.

"Too bad, Weasley." I said, not even thinking about letting him win.

"You're so mean to me." He said, and crossed his arms over his chest childishly.

"The more you talk top me the longer it'll take me to get this finished, and the longer you have to wait for your cuddle time." I informed him in a desperate attempt to shut him up. His eyes widened and he looked at me, doing that stupid thing that made it look as if you zipped your mouth shut and then locked it, throwing away the key. I smiled, triumphantly and began to finish up the last bit that was left. Twenty minutes later, just as I promised, I was finished and I let him lead me up to his dormitory.

"Fred, I told you, I'm not, I repeat not, sleeping naked with four other guys in here. Especially one being your twin brother!" I yelled at him while he laughed.

"You're just no fun, are you?"

"Fuck you! I'm leaving if you keep making fun of me," I pouted and he immediately changed demeanor.

"I'm sorry! Please don't leave, I'm lonely." he said sadly and I kissed him.

"You don't have to be lonely if you'd just learn to be nicer," I said.

"But it's so hard!" He whined, and I couldn't help myself. I laughed. "What's so- oh. You dirty minded weirdo," He laughed along with me.

"I-I'm sorry, but that was great." I said through giggles.

"Oh my god, I love you so much." He said.

"That's great! Because guess what?"


"I love you too! Like, A lot!" I exclaimed, kissing him.

"Oh, That's just wonderful." He smiled and kissed me again, and again, and again.

I loved this. It seemed like we were finally getting back on track and becoming a real couple again. Now I know we can go through things and still work our way through it. And I'm extremely glad for that, because damn, I am in love with this boy. I don't want us to get ruined by anything. Nothing seemed as though it could stand in our way at the moment and that's how I liked it, because I wanted many more years with the boy I was insanely in love, no, am in love with.
