A/N sorry this is getting a little boring, but trust me, Eliana has a huge part in the story. Thank you for reading this, even though it's really bad-

Athena's POV

Eli and I had gotten to know each other a but over breakfast, which consisted of her eating and me watching her. Fred and George sat a little ways away from us, but Lee sat right next to me, and tried flirting with my new friend.

"I'm sorry, but I'm not even straight." She laughed and I looked at Lee's shocked face and I giggled.

"Nice try, buddy. Maybe next time." I shrugged.

"Well, at least I tried. When are you coming to sit with us again."

"I dunno, I'm probably not." I said, looking at Fred.

"Oh don't let that git bother you." He said, and added quietly. "He was an idiot to break up with you," I shrugged.

"It happened, so what's the difference? You should probably get back to your lover." I pointed at George and he laughed.

"Oh yeah, we're totally in love."

"Oh I know." I grinned and he shook his head.

"Well, I'll see you in class." He smiles and I nodded.

"Will do, you arse." I said as he walked away.

"That was?"

"Lee Jordan." I smiled. "He's one of my best friends."

"And the other two?"

"Fred and George Weasley. George is my other best friend, Fred is my Ex." I said quietly. She looked at me sadly and I shrugged. "It's whatever. You're really not straight? Or was that just something go fend the men off?"

"Nope, I'm really a lesbian. Probably another reason most of my family hates me." She shrugged.

"Well, you're welcome in my family any time. My godfather is really accepting no matter what, so you'd be fine." I told her.

"That's means a lot. We should probably go get our things now," she said. I nodded and stood up and we started to walk side by side out of The Great Hall. And if I didn't look like enough of an idiot, I tripped and landed on my face while I was walking past the twins and Lee. "Oh my god are you okay?" Eli panicked and helped me up. "Your nose!"

I couldn't really feel it, but when I touched it and I knew it was broken. "God dammit, just go, I'll go see Madame Pomfrey. I'm fine." I said, wiping my nose with the back of my hand. I saw it was smeared with the dark crimson colour of blood.

"Nonsense, let me fix it." She said and pulled out her wand.

"No, it's fine. I wouldn't mind getting out of Potions with Snape anyway." I waved her off and held the back of my hand to my excessively bleeding nose.

"Are you sure?" She asked and I nodded.

"I'll be fine, just go. I'm sure someone will show you the way if I'm not back." I said and looked over to the table where my two best friends and the boy I'm in love with say. They were all looking at me with wide eyes, and I assume I had a very misshapen nose and blood all over my hand.

I scrambled out of The Great Hall, already embarrassed enough and straight to the hospital wing. I didn't really trust anyone to fix broken bones after what happened with Harry and Professor Lockhart.

I scrambled in and Madame Pomfrey looked at me and sighed. "Why is it always you paying me a visit on the first day?"

"Trust me, I really don't try and get myself hurt," I sighed and she beckoned me to sit down.

"What did you do this time?" She asked, moving my hands away from my face. "Oh my,"

"I tripped," I admitted. She sighed and shook her head.

"Easily fixes, but do he more careful." She smiles and pulled out her wand, mending my bone easily.

"It will feel odd for a while, but it's no longer broken." She told me and I nodded.

"Thank you,"

"Anytime, dear. Now you better get to class. It started five minutes ago." She said.

"Can't I stay here a little longer?" I pleaded.

"Potions?" I nodded. "Oh fine, but only for a little while." She gave in easily. She knew I hated potions, so it was never a hard task to get her to let me stay.

A half an hour later she came out and told me to return to class. After pointless begging, I finally have in and left, bidding a goodbye and another thank you.

I slowly walked down to the dungeons after I got my things from my dormitories. I walked I to the classroom and heads turned to look at me. "About time, Black." Snape said, not looking up from whatever he was doing. I assumed someone told him where I was.

"Awe, did you miss me this summer, Snape?" He looked up at me, and despite how much he hated me, I couldn't swore a hint of a smile his behind his eyes. But of course, he wouldn't let himself.

"Sit down," he said and I shrugged, sitting next to Eli and putting my feet up on the desk. He sighed and shook his head, not bothering to say anything, knowing I wouldn't listen anyway.

"What took you so long? Are you alright?" She asked quietly. I nodded and gave a small smile.

"Madame Pomfrey knows I don't like Potions class very much." I said and she rolled her eyes.

"Do you do that a lot?" She asked, grinning.

"All of the time."

"The least you could do is pay attention, Black." Snape drawled, stopping whatever he was talking about.

"Sorry, professor! I just thought you knew that I just got here and already find this lesson sickeningly boring. So I really hope I'm not disturbing you, but if I am I'll just go." I said, pointing to the door.

Snape stared for a moment, blinked and then opened his mouth, and I expected to get told off, but the only thing he said was "keep your voices down."
