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

Dear Remus,

I hope everything's going good at home, and I'm sorry for getting so mad at you guys. I was just really upset. I miss you a lot, and as usual, Snape is a slimy git. I do hope you're feeling okay, you know, with your furry little problem and all. Oh, don't forget to tell dad (when you see him next) that is he's trying to make up for that many years of lost parenting, that's not how to do it.

Remember when I said I'd decided what I wanted to be? Yeah, well I think it's about time I told you. I want to be an Auror. I know it's an extremely big wish, but I think I can do it. I mean, I am my fathers daughter. I'm so damn stubborn that I won't stop until I've gotten it.

Well, I probably should go. Fred's been annoying me all day. Beauxbatons and Durmstrang students are supposed to be arriving today, so I want to spend as much time with him as possible before he catches sight of any girl who's part Veela. Then I'm sure I'd lose him.

Love you, and write back. If you don't I'll murder you when I get home. I really hope you're doing all right. Talk to you soon (hopefully).

Love, Athena

I sighed and finished re-reading the letter, before sealing it and tying it to Oli's leg. "You will deliver it, won't you?" I asked, hopefully. He hooted in some sort of agreement before flying off. This wouldn't have been the first time Remus hadn't gotten his letters.

I walked out, still feeling absolutely exhausted. That's really all I was lately. Absolutely exhausted. Ever since I had gotten back to Hogwarts, all I've wanted to do was sleep.

"Athena!" Lee called out, running up next to me. "What's up?"

"I'm going to sleep." I smiled. "Ah, sleep. I love it." I sighed.

"All you ever do is sleep." He whined. I shrugged, placing an arm around his shoulder. He was a bit taller than me, so I had to stretch to reach, but I did it anyway.

"Exactly," I say. "Now I have to go. I have no more classes, so I'll sleep until I can't anymore." I smiled.

"You're such a weirdo." He laughed.

"Yes, I am. Goodbye now." I said, waving.

"You can't be going to sleep again?!" Fred exclaimed as I began to walk up the stairs to the boys dormitories.

"I am, wake me up when I need to be waken." I told him.

"I'm coming up with you," he said, following me.

"You don't have to." I told him as he grabbed my hand.

"Well I know that," he said "I want to." I smiled as he lifted me into the bed and laid beside me. "Why are you always so tired?"

"I don't know, I think I might be getting sick or something." I shrugged.

"But you're always tired! It's been like two weeks, Athena." He pointed out. I shrugged.

"I guess I'm just tired." I told him, sinking back into the sheets.

Fred's POV

I made sure she was fully asleep before I stepped out of the bed. I was determined to find out why she was always sleeping. She was acting a lot different, and I want my Athena back.

I walked down the stairs and into the common room to see my you get brother and his two friends, along with Lee and George. I smiled and made my way over to them.

"D'you guys know what's wrong with Athena?" I asked.

"No, but there's something definitely wrong, though." Lee said.

"I know, she's always sleeping." George agreed.

"Maybe she's just tired?" Harry asked.

"One cannot sleep that much and still be tired, Harry." Hermione pointed out. "Are you guys sure she's eating enough? And when she does, what does she eat?" And then I got it. She wasn't eating properly. Whether it was on purpose or not, she wasn't eating enough.

"Bloody hell..." I said. "How could I have missed that?"

"We all missed it, mate. We just have to make sure she's eating." George told me, looking a little worried. We all looked worried, but George was showing it the most. Other than me, I guess. I sat between Ron and the arm of the couch and out my head in my hands.

"How did I miss something this huge?" I muttered.

"Fred, you should go get her. Durmstrang and Beauxbatons will be arriving soon. We have to go and greet them along with the rest of the school." Hermione told me softly, and I nodded, standing up.

I made my way back up to where my beautiful girlfriend was sleeping. I took a long long at her and I just noticed how frail she looked. She was small and skinny, and very pale. She was beginning to get dark circles under her eyes. Her cheeks were sunken in and she just looked worn out. I decided not to mention anything to her tonight.

"Athena," I said, waking over to her.

"Go away," she mumbled.

"Athena, you have to wake up. Durmstrang and Beauxbatons are going to he here soon. Dumbledore wants us all to be out to greet them." I told her.

She huffed, but dragged herself out of my bed anyway. "But I don't want to," she pouted.

"You have to," I told her, hugging her tightly.

"Meanie," she said, hugging me back.

"It isn't me making you get up, it's Dumblydore." I smiled.

"You didn't have to wake me up though," she whined.

"Then he would've been angry. Dumbledore angry isn't good." I informed her.

"But I'm tired." She sighed.

"We know... we know." I said.

"I don't know why though." She said, which made me think. If she really isn't starving herself on purpose, why is she so tired. Is she so forgetful that she forgot to eat? Or is there something more to the story? I looked at her and stopped for a moment.

"Kiss me." I said, softly. She smiled and pressed her lips to my own.

"I love you, Athena." I told her, meaning it entirely.

"I love you too, Fred." She said, and all I could hope was that she meant it entirely too.
