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

"Ms. Black, you may follow me." The sickly sweet voice of Dolores Umbridge rang through my ears as I sat in the Auror Office of The Ministry Of Magic.

"How can I help you, Dolores?" I asked with a straight face and not an imperfection in my posture.

"The young wizards Harry James Potter, Hermione Jean Granger, and Ronald Bilius Weasley have gone missing as of the end of July. We have sources that have lead us to believe you may know where they are?"

"No ma'am, I have no clue where the three are right now." I said with complete work etiquette for my work superiors, even though I have a deep hatred for the woman in front of me.

"I think you're lying," she smiled.

"I think you're being a little stupid if you think that, then." I spat and turned on my heel, and walked straight back into my office. I sat at my desk and began furiously writing things down that needed to be done to get my mind off her. I sat there for a while and thought about my family. About dad and Remus, Fred and Eli. I thought about Harry, Ron and Hermione and about where they may be right now. I would've thought for a lot longer until I heard a bang outside my door.

I stood up and stepped outside to see what was wrong and I saw Kingsley looking confused in the corridor much like myself. That's when I saw the posters. The posters of Undesirable No. 1, 2, and 3.

"Son of a bitch,"

"Remusssssss!" I sang as I stepped in the door of my childhood home.

"What do you want this time?" He asked from the living room. I walked in to see him reading a book.

"Oh, well fuck you too then." I said and gave him the finger.

"Language!"

"Dicks!" I called back and walked into the kitchen. I looked through the cupboards and decided I would have a owl of cereal for dinner.

"You haver some real problems," my godfather said from behind me.

"Like father like daughter," I smiled without thinking of what I was saying. My smile dropped and my heart felt heavy. I don't know what made me say it, but when I did I couldn't breathe. Maybe it was because I felt like calling Remus my dad would've upset my real dad, or if it just felt totally wrong, but I felt like I couldn't move. "I'm sorry," I whispered and looked last his head and straight at the wall.

I grabbed I to the counter for support because if elf like I would fall over. "Athena,"

"Wait," I held a hand up and slowly composed myself. I started to get over the strangeness of it all and shook my head. I looked at him and blinked. "You've been just like a dad to me my whole life, and even though I love my real dad more than anything, I think you'd deserve the title more than he does. You've been there since I was a baby. You were there for everything important to me, and you took care of me much better than actual parents would take care or their children sometimes. You were definitely not a very fortunate and wealthy person, but I got mostly everything I asked for. That's so fucking amazing of you. I can never every repay you for what you've done for me my whole life, and I love you so damn much, so no, it's actually not as weird as you think it would be for you to call you dad. It isn't weird at all, especially to have two fathers."

When I looked at Remus he was nearly crying. "I'm so, so proud to call you my dad." I whispered and hugged him tightly. He kissed the top of my head and I smiled.

"I love you," he told me and I looked up at him.

"I love you too."

"You remind me so, so much of your mother." He whispered and I smiled.

"Tell me about her. Please." I said and he only smiled.

"Your mom was such a nice girl. She always helped everyone she could, and never said a bad thing about anyway. She was a Ravenclaw, and nobody had anything bad to say about her, either."

"Wait, mum was a Ravenclaw?"

"The brightest of them all," he smiled. "Your mom was friends with Severus until she hear about what he called Lily, and she refused to talk to him. She and Sirius, your dad, always had a special relationship since the first day they met. He was always trying to impress her, and she was always trying to look her best in front of him. Which I don't see why, she was already stunning. And you are an exact replica of her. Except for your smile. You've got your fathers smile. And personality, Merlin save us all," he smiled and I smacked his arm.

"You're rude,"

"She was a model student, just like Lily. The two were best friends, actually. Her, Marlene, Alice and Lily. Everyone thought Sirius and Marlene were going to get together, but James and I knew that what they had wasn't going to be ignored. And the next thing we knew, your parents were going to every Hogsmeade trip together, spending every minute together, and kissing when we weren't looking."

"That sounds so cliché,"

"It was," he said and his face twisted into a look of disgust.

"Wait," I paused and stared at him.

"What?" He asked, skeptically.

"You loved my dad. Not in the friend way either. You were in love with him," I said softly. He stared at me and I saw his eyes sadden. "It's okay." I said and placed my hand on his arm gently.

"I never said anything because I knew how in love they were. It was hard to watch him be happy with someone else, but I was okay as long as he was," he said and furrowed his eyebrows. "I was always the weird werewolf kid with the scars that nobody really liked, I just learned to live with it," he shook his head and I slapped him.

I literally slapped him. I was so angry at him for saying that. "Listen here," I said "you are fucking perfect. Do you think any of your friends cared that you were a werewolf? No! They still fucking loved you. I still love you. Everyone does, Remus. You need to stop with that, because it doesn't matter to us," I said softly and ran my fingers over the mark I left on his cheek. "I... Uh, I'm sorry."

He dismissed it with the shake of his head. "I loved your dad so much," he paused. "I wanted him to love me like I loved him. Like I love him, but it never happened, and in still not over it, because he's gone and I can't tell him now." He whispered and a tear fell down his cheek. I wiped it away and hugged him tightly.

"Remus, he was a fool not to notice. I think that you deserved that after everything you went through. But guess what? You have Tonks, now, and she's one of the best things that's happened to you."

"And I have you."

"You do,"

"But, I do need to confess something to you. And I think you would understand, of all people."

"What would that be?" I asked.

"I've made a grave mistake in marrying Tonks," and just like that, my smile turned to glare.
