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

It's been a week, and all the students from the other schools have started to get used to things around here. I had been extremely different lately and I had no idea why. George wants me to go see Madame Pomfrey, but I couldn't see why. It doesn't seem like anything is extremely wrong.

"Go, now." George ordered. "I'll even go with you." He offered.

"If you don't give it up I will throw up on you." I spat, trying to finish my potions essay.

"Please Athena. I just want to know that you're okay." He said quietly.

"Oh fine." I said, placing my quill down and let him lead me to the hospital wing. "This is really stupid. There's nothing wrong." I tried to convince him, and myself.


"So, how much have you been eating lately?" She finally asked, after checking me over multiple times, doing different things.

"Well... not a lot. But enough."

"Barely enough," George muttered.

"Well, I dare say you should pick up your eating habits, Miss Black." She told me, sternly.

"Yeah, yeah, I know."

"Yes, especially since you're not nearly eating enough for two people." Madame Pomfrey told me.

"Excuse me, I thought you said-" I was cut off.

"Two people? Why yes, you're pregnant, Athena." She smiles warmly and I swear my heart almost burst through my chest. "Three months. A little over. You can tell people, you're past the first Trimester." She added.

"T-thank you," I said, reaching out a shaking hand to grab George's shoulder.

"Let's go," he said quietly, helping me up.

"George," I said once we got out of the hospital wing. "What am I going to do?!" I started to panic. I felt tears in my eyes and I could barely breathe. "How will Fred take it? Remus, dad?!" I exclaimed, wanting to break down right on the spot.

"Athena, please calm down. It's alright. You'll be alright. Fred is going to stay, he takes responsibility for anything that he's done, I know him. That'll be fine. Remus and your dad love you, and they'll support you. Please calm down." He said, exasperated.

"I can't believe I was stupid enough-"

"This is NOT all of your fault, Athena. It's Fred's, too. You guys did this together, so you should stick together. But you need to tell him now." He said.


"Now." He said sternly. "If you want, I'll write the letters to your dad and Remus." He added. I nodded, grateful to have him.

"You're right... You're right... I just... Have to tell him. Thank you." I said, uttering the password and tumbled into the common room.

"Athena?" Harry said, but I ignored him and walked straight towards the redhead that I was scared I was going to lose.

"Fred, we need to talk." He looked at me, genuinely scared. "I'm not breaking up with you," I rushed out. "But we still need to talk." We walked over to a corner that wasn't occupied and nobody was near, and I broke down in his arms.

"Woah, woah, Athena, what is the matter?" He asked, holding me.

"I-it's all my fault." I cried.

"What is?" He asked, trying to get an answer.

"I-I'm pregnant." I sobbed into his chest. He froze, and for a moment, I thought we were over.

"Athena," he said gently. "That's amazing." He smiled, picking me up. "When did you find out?"

"T-today," I said, starting to calm down. "George made me go to the hospital wing and that's when I found out. I'm a little over three months." I smiled slightly. He laughed a laugh that couldn't have sounded more joyful if he tried.

"That's amazing!" He said, kissing me. I smiled and grabbed his cheeks, holding his face there for a moment. "You thought I'd be upset?" He asked once we broke apart.

"Well... Sort of."

"It was partially my fault, you know. It takes two to make a baby." He pointed out.

"I know... I was just worried as always." I sighed.

"I know," he said, running his hand through my hair. "We should probably tell the worried whatever he is to you," he pointed to Harry and I smiled.

"If you want to," I shrugged.

"Why not?" He shrugged. I nodded and he put me down on the ground. I walked over to Harry, Ron and Hermione with a smile too big for my own good.

"What just..."

"Happened? Well, today I found something out that changed my life as we know it." I said dramatically.

"What would that be?" Hermione asked.

"I'm pregnant." I smiled. Harry stared at me, dumbfounded. Ron looked lost for a moment, grossed out the next, then excited. And Hermione looked amazed. She looked so happy and I think hers was by far the best reaction.

"You're having a baby?" She said in awe. I nodded, grinning. "That's so amazing!" She squealed.

"Fred, a dad? That's gonna be brilliant." Ron laughed at his older brothers annoyed face.

"Thanks, little bro." He rolled his eyes.

"You're still a kid, though." Harry said.

"I know. It was an accident, but there's nothing we can do about it now. It happened, and we just have to work through it." I smiled.

"Right. I'm happy for you two." He said, hugging me.

"Wait! How's mom gonna take it!?" Ron laughed once more.

"We'll deal with that when we get to it. We're dealing with Remus and Dad first." I told them.

"Wow, you're gonna have a werewolf, a dog and mom on you now, Fred. You've really done it this time." Ron joked.

"Oh shut up." He rolled his eyes.

"Letters are sent." George said, walking up behind us. "You told them?" He asked and I nodded. "Good."

"Would you care to join me on a walk around the grounds?" Fred asked me, holding out his hand.

"Oh I would absolutely love to, Fred Weasley!" I said, kissing him and taking his hand in my own.

"That's wonderful! Let's go!" He said, lacing our fingers together.

Right now, I honestly couldn't have been happier with my life.
