In That Moment, We Were Infinite (Book 5)

Family stays together until the end. No matter how close the end is, you have to stay together. Now maybe I'm not the perfect person to say this, but to lose them before you even got a chance with them is tragic. Trust me, that I do know. But I swear, in our last moments, we were infinite. And I would never give that up. Not for anything.

Athena's POV

"And I swear that I'll love you forever, even if you drive me insane." Fred smiled.

"Wow, way to make me cry, you git." I said and wiped away my tears. "Well, I met you nine years ago last September, and it's a shock that you haven't killed me yet with your crazy antics," I laughed. "You and your brother were my two best friends, but there's always been something so different about you." I paused.

"And now I'm standing here, and I'm realizing what it was." I took a deep breath. "You've always been there for me. You know, with my dad and everything, and not once have you let me down. Don't worry, there's still time." I smiled.

"I'm joking. Really though, you've always pulled through and I'm utterly amazed." I furrowed my eyebrows and he gave my hand a squeeze, causing me to smile.

"I never knew exactly what I loved about you. Maybe it was your humor, or your smile, or your ginger hair. But now I know that my favourite thing about you is everything. Everything from your love for pranks, to the way you never like to leave me by myself. In the past nine years with you, I feel like I've saved more than I've lost." I smiled. "And that's all thanks to you."

"You know, sometimes I really wonder how you even stayed with me this long, but hey, to complain would be stupid. You've put up with tears, tantrums, and basically hell and back since you asked me to be your girlfriend, and you're still here, and you deserve an award for that."

"I love you. And not on a whim, either. I love you a lot more than I may show, and I'm sorry for that, because sometimes I can be a bitch. But you, Fred Weasley, are something else. And I love you more than words would be able to explain, ever. And to lose you would be like to lose a part of myself. And I don't think I would ever get that part back. Ever." I finished quietly. He was crying again, and I saw Remus and Tonks crying. And Eli as well.

"I love you so damn much," he whispered. I smiled and kissed him. I kissed him like it was the last time I ever would.

"I love you too, Mr. Weasley." I smiled.

"And I love you the most, Mrs. Black-Weasley." He laughed. I heard people clapping but all I could focus on was the man standing in front of me. The one I watched grow up along side me. The one I watched myself slowly fall in love with. And I felt a strong surge of affection towards him, because this is my husband, and there's something he doesn't yet know, that'll change us forever.

"You're my husband. What the fuck?" I laughed and I hugged his tightly.

"You're my wife. What the fuck?" He copied me.

"I'd have never thought you'd be the one I married when I first met you on that train nine years ago."

"I knew you'd be the one I married. I knew I would conquer your heart one way or another." He smiled and kissed my head.

"You knew, did you?"

"Obviously. I was like, madly in love with you when you hexed that Slytherin boy for calling me a Blood traitor in first year."

"I just have that charm, don't I?"

"Damn right. Hey, say we skip the dinner and reception and go straight home." He suggested and wiggled his eyebrows.

"You're such a weirdo." I laughed and he smiled.

"Your weirdo."

"I need to change."

"By the way, you look beautiful in that dress. You're beautiful even without the dress, but hell, Athena, are you trying to kill me?" He joked and I smiled.

"I'm going to change." I announced and turned to walk to the house. Everyone was up talking and Eli ran up to me.

"Where do you think you're going?"

"To change."

"No, no. You have to have your first dance and THEN you can change." She explained.


"Shut up and go talk to your god father." She ordered and I sighed.

"You're so mean to me."

"I love you! And congratulations!" She clapped and I walked over to Remus.

"Bloody hell, Athena. I've never been so proud of you." He laughed and hugged me.

"I love you so much, moony." I whispered. He held me tighter and I felt so grateful towards him. He raised me and cared for me like his own kid, and he never once left my side. "Where is Teddy? I need to see him!" I exclaimed after a moment. He laughed and pointed towards Tonks who was talking with her mother.

"I'm gonna go steal your baby, is that cool? Even if it isn't, I don't care. I love him." I said and he grinned as I left to go over to his wife. "Oh Tonksie," I smiled and hugged her from behind.

"Speaking of the devil," she turned around.

"I demand to see that adorable godson of mine." I smiled and puffed my chest out.

"He was reaching for you the whole time." She laughed and handed Teddy to me.

"Did someone miss me?" I asked and he laughed. "Oh, Merlin Tonks I love your child." I laughed and watched him as he played with my finger.

"He really loves you too." She smiled and I watched as the tuft of hair on the top of Teddy's head turned from blonde to the same colour of black as my own. "He does that a lot." She told me. "So, how does it feel?" She smiled.

"Weird, I mean, I never thought I would marry my best friend, and it just all feels so surreal." I laughed.

"I thought the whole thing was beautiful. You two truly love each other, and I think that's amazing. I hope you two are together a long time." She said and I thanked her. Nothing seemed to be able to go wrong.

Teddy stared at me and started to make weird faces, causing me to laugh. He was so adorable. And to think...

"Athena!" I snapped my head up to see Remus, looking frantic.

"What? What's wrong?" I asked.

"Harry. He's at Hogwarts. And Snape knows." He said and my heart dropped.

There was something I forgot to mention, wasn't there? The date. Fred and I got married on May 2nd, 1998.
