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

No. No, no, no. He isn't dead. Nope. I saw George and he was crying, but he froze when he saw me. I couldn't move, I couldn't breathe, I couldn't cry, and I couldn't scream. I collapsed to my knees beside him and I took his face in my hands.

It was still warm. He must he joking. He can't be dead. Nope, I won't believe. "Please please please wake up," I repeated it louder and louder until I started to sob. "You have to wake up! You have to! You're gonna be a dad! You have to wake up!" I sobbed and George's picked me up.

"Athena, he's not waking up. He can't," he whispered and I felt like my heart and head were going to explode.

"George, he isn't dead. I know he isn't. He can't be. He's very much alive." I told him and I  hiccuped between the words.

"Shh, honey, shh. He isn't going to wake up." He said softly. I cried into his chest and I couldn't handle it anymore.

"Let me go please. Please let me go." I begged. He reluctantly let me lean down and take his hand. "Freddie, what've you gotten yourself into?" I whispered and squeezed his hand. "You just got everything together, what are we ever going to do without you?" I cried. "You know, you're gonna be a dad. You would've been the best damn dad in the world, too." I said shakily. I leaned down and kissed him softly but it was too hard. He wasn't kissing back and it didn't feel right. "I love you so much."

I eventually had to let him go because I was too sad to stay. George looked at me sadly, as if he knew something I didn't. "What? What's wrong?" I asked frantically.

"You should probably see this," he said softly.

"Tell me what the hell is going on!" He took my hand and lead me to somewhere else. I didn't want to leave Fred, but it must've been important so I followed him. "Please, Georgie, tell me." I said and he turned to face me.

"I'm still here, okay? Eli is still here, don't forget that." He said and I stared at him. He stepped aside and I felt my world collapse on top of me.

"Remus? Tonks? Not you too." I said and I felt the tears start to fall again. I sat down next to my dead godfather and I cried. I cried and cried harder than I ever had before. Everything was going so good, and then it fell apart again. I held on to his hand and I tried to control myself but I just sobbed harder. "You were supposed to always be there for me, you arse!" I cried and I tried to catch my breath. "You have a son! And you were starting to get your life together! How could you just leave us like that?" I asked him, but obviously, there was no answer.

"I still need you. I may be of age, but I'm no damn adult. I still need you here to help me make the right choices, Remus. I need you!" I cried harder. I felt a hand on my back and I looked up to see Professor McGonagall staring at me, sadly.

"Athena, you best get off the floor and you need to calm down. That isn't good for the baby." She extended her hand and helped me up.

"Right." I said and made an attempt at composing myself. She sighed and hugged me.

"I know, it's hard. It'll get better."  She told me.

"It seemed like everything was finally coming together. And then... Boom." I said and she smiled slightly.

"I know."


It was beginning to turn light outside and I walked out behind Neville and Ginny to see the damage that was done. In the distance I saw people walking. Walking towards the castle. When they came closer, I saw it was being led my Voldemort himself. And then there was Hagrid, carrying someone.

"Neville, who's that Hagrid's carrying?" Ginny asked. I looked back and saw everyone was starting to gather. I walked over beside George and he held my hand tightly.

"HARRY POTTER IS DEAD!" Dread filled my body and I nearly fell to my knees.

"NO!" Ginny yelled but Arthur held her back.

"Stupid girl! Harry potter is dead!" He laughed. I hugged George and buried my face in his chest. Not him, too. Neville started to talk but I couldn't bear to listen. My heart was hurting more and more at every word that came from his mouth. 

I looked up and saw Neville holding the Sorting hat. It all happened too fast for me to comprehend. Neville pulled the sword of Gryffindor from the hat and Harry fell from Hagrid's arms. Very much alive. I nearly jumped for joy, but I realized this may not end well, either. I ran back into the Great Hall and saw Eli standing, dumbfounded.

"Jesus! What're you doing?" I asked.

"I... Don't know." She said and looked at Remus and Tonks.

"There's no time, come on." I told her and pulled her away from all of the commotion.

"Are you okay?"

"Never better." I said and she hugged me.

"I'm so sorry."

"Don't worry, but we can't just stand here." I told her.

"Why not?"

"Because people are fighting, and I'd be damned to sit back and watch." I muttered and she hugged me one last time.

"Don't get hurt." She whispered and I kissed her head.

"You too," I said and we went our separate ways.

The second part of the battle seemed to end as quickly as it started. Most of the Death Eaters were terrified and apparated. Harry found a way to keep Voldemort distracted, and Neville cut the head off the snake.

It was too hard to believe that The Dark Lord was dead, but it was true. After everything I lost, not even me, but what everyone had lost in this war, it's finally over. And everything will be okay.
