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

"Her and I... I've ruined her life. She'll never be looked at as equal for being married to... Me." He said and I stared at him.

"Do you realize what you've just said? About the woman you love? About your wife? About your pregnant wife?!" I yelled and he looked at me, dumbstruck. "Yeah, she's pregnant because of you, and you have the audacity to say you've made a mistake marrying her? That's disgusting," I scowled.

"She's pregnant?" He spluttered and I glared at him.

"She is,"

"I've damned two lives," he muttered and shook his head.

"Do not make me slap you again," I said and he didn't even look at me. "You're pathetic," I shook my head and he stood up.

"Do not call me pathetic," he growled, and that was the first time I've ever seen Remus Lupin angry.

"What's wrong with telling the truth," I pushed him back.

"Is that really how you're going to talk to me? Even after you just got finished saying how grateful you were?"

"That was before I realized what you really were," I said, with angry tears burning in the corner of my eyes. "You've been a great parent to me, so fuck off and do the same for your actual kid,"

"As far as I'm concerned, you are my kid." He said and I stared at him.

"Well guess what, I'm not. I'm not even fucking related to you! I was a damn foster kid to you! With a dead mom and an imprisoned dad! Why would you be such a damn good 'parent' to me, and be ashamed of yourself for making your own. This is your chance, Remus! You've always said you would've loved a kid of your own! Why would you fuck it up before you even got the chance? I was practice, now do it for real," I stormed out of the kitchen, leaving Remus there to think about what he said.

I walked out of the house and apparated to Grimmauld place. I just wanted to be close to dad once more. I know I shouldn't be here, but I don't care. I entered the house and the protection charm Mad-eye casted a while ago scared the shit out of me, as always. The only thing new, was the three seventeen year-olds that stood startled in the kitchen.

"Oh hey guys," I waved. "You know, I'd really advise you to be careful. The ministry is searching everywhere for you, and if you get caught, you're dying," I pointed to Harry "and you two are going to Azkaban." I finished and the three stared at me with their mouths agape.

"Well hello to you too," Ron muttered.

"What's wrong? You look upset?"

"Ah, family troubles." I shrugged.

"Fred?" Ron asked.

"Remus." And they looked surprised.

"You two never fight,"

"Yeah, until he decided to act like an arse," I smiled. "Listen, I just want to go upstairs for a little while, would you mind?" I asked.

"This is practically your house, Athena." Harry pointed out.

"It's your house, Harry."

"And you're welcome anytime." He smiled.

"Well, thank you." I nodded and turned to walk to my fathers bedroom. I laid down on the bed for a moment and just say still and quiet. Dad laid in this bed a little more than two years ago. Maybe if I laid here long enough I could see him again. It's stupid, I'm aware, but I wanted anything. I didn't even get to say goodbye. I didn't reply to his last letter. I'm a terrible person.

"I really miss you dad," I said to fill the void of silence I'm the room. "I really wish I could talk to you again, and I know this is pointless talking to your old bedroom, buts it's something, even if I feel a little crazy." I paused. "I love you," I said quietly. "Remus is a dad. For real this time. Tonks and him got married, and she's pregnant. He's being an arse, though."

I paused again as if there would be a reply, but as always, silence remained. "And I need you," I whispered and a tear rolled down my cheek. "Why the fuck did you have to leave me? I still need you! I need you to walk me down the isle, I need you to be there when I face my first kid, I need you, but you're not here." I finished.

"Fred and I have all the wedding planned, and we have the date, but I'm not allowed to say it yet." I smiled through the salty tears falling down my face. "Eli still hasn't found a girlfriend, and I'm trying my best to help her out with that." I sighed. "Umbridge still hates me. She's trying her very best to get me fired, but Kingsley won't even think of it. He says it's because I'm amazing at what I'm doing, but I think it's because he knows me well," I laughed, but it turned to a sob.

"I have a question," I whispered and ran my hands over the sheets in the bed. "Two, actually. One, I'm laying in your bed right now and how many damn people did you sleep with in here because that's gross man," I grimaced and tried to push that thought from my mind. "And two. Does it hurt? To die? I've always thought if it as easy and painless, but that isn't necessarily true. Was it painless for you? Because I hope it was. I hope you weren't in any pain at all." I stopped to breathe and calm myself down. "So tell me, what was it like to die, dad? What did you think when you realized you were going to 'sleep', but you'd never wake up again?"

"Anyway, this is making me cry too hard, and Fred is probably wondering where I am. I love you, and I really wish you were here right now. I hope you know I constantly think about how much I miss you, and I can't wait to see you again."
