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

Christmas wasn't the same without Harry, Hermione and Ron. Even though they weren't there, It wasn't terrible. I woke up at Remus's beside Fred, and we all exchanged gifts in the living room, and then we went to The Burrow to do the rest there.

It was very lovely, yes. But I felt... Sad. There was so many more people that should've been here. After all, I only spent three Christmases with the Potters (not Harry), none with my mother, and four with my father. One that I can really remember.

"Damn, you've barely spoken. You alright?" Eli asked and I nodded.

"Yeah, just thinking. Mostly about dad." I smiled. She sighed and put an arm around my shoulder.

"Wanna go out for a little while?" She asked so only I could hear.

"Please," I said and we left the house. As we apparated to Diagon Alley, I began to feel less sad and more like myself. I think being around so many people wasn't that great for me.

Diagon Alley was empty. There wasn't a soul here. After all, it was eight o'clock on Christmas Day.

"You gonna be okay?" She asked and I was about to answer when I heard a noise behind us.

"What the hell-"

"CRUCIO!" A spell flew and hit Eli.

"NO! REDUCTO!" I screamed and aimed the spell at the Death Eaters wand.

"You bitch!"

"EVERTE STATUM!" I yelled and he was thrown backwards and hit his head off the wall. "Eli, are you okay?" I asked frantically and helped her up.

"Yeah, I'm fine."

"Maximum extremus." I muttered to strengthen all of my spells.

"AVADA KEDAVRA!" A shot of green light flew past my head and I heard Eli scream, and my first thought was that it hit her. I looked back, and she was very much alive and I breathed a sigh of relief.

"STUPEFY! REDUCTO! LACARNUM INFLAMARE!" And all at once, the man was stunned, wounded badly and set on fire. My body filled with terror as I realized what I'd done, and I tried to tell myself he was a bad man.

"He's dead." Eli whispered after a few minutes.

"I know," I said, my voice wavering. And I was caught off guard and blasted backwards. I hit my head off the ground and swore tremendously. I stood up, and even though I was very dizzy, I could see our next attacker was a woman. "CONFRINGO!" I yelled as she was about to shoot another spell. 

"Wipe their memory, we need to go." I told her.

"Your bleeding!"

"Yeah we'll fix it later! Hurry!"

"Obliviate," we chorused and wiped the memory of the two people who were still alive.

"Oh god I killed him!" I panicked. I kept repeating that until Eli slapped me.

"You were scared, he deserved it. We need to get back." She said and we apparated. "Come on, I need to clean your head. It looks like you have damn rocks in it." She muttered and moved the hair around to see it better.

I followed her inside and she walked me to the bathroom and grabbed a wash cloth. "It'll hurt a little." She said and started to clean it with something.

"Ah! God dammit!" I winced.

"I'm so sorry," she apologized.

"No, no it's fine. Just please hurry," I muttered. She finished quickly and grabbed her wand.

"Vulnera sanetur." She said and I felt the cut mend. It felt weird, but better. "There. Now just, be careful." She sighed and washed the blood that was matting my hair.

"Whatever you say princess," I smiled and hugged her. "Thank you."

"Thank you. You practically saved my life." She said and I stared at her.

"You're my best friend, I would protect you no matter what." I told her.

"Aw, little Athena protecting her friends. So cute." She said and pinched my cheek. I furrowed my eyebrows and slapped her hand away.

"Can we just go to Fred's room. Or home. I just don't feel good." I said.

"No wonder, you lost a bit of blood there."

"That's nothing, you've been under the Cruciatus curse. That's hell and back, that is." I said and she rolled her eyes.

We walked down the stairs and the first person u saw was Tonks. "Where were you two?"

"Doesn't matter, were going home, alright?" She smiled and hugged me, and with a brisk kiss on the top of my head, she let me go.

"Love you," she said and I grinned.

"Love you too, Mrs. Lupin." I laughed and walked into the living room to tell the others where we were going. And with that, we apparated home.

"Nothing like some Christmas night Nirvana." I smiled and went through my CDs. "What album? Nevermind, In Utero, I have MTV Unplugged, and Best of the Best?"

"Nevermind, you numpty." She said and flicked my forehead.

"No need to be an arse." I said and put the CD in.

"Who, Me? Never!" She laughed and laid on my bed.

"That's my bed you toerag."

"Nice. It's quite comfortable."

"Comfortably numb." I said and laughed harder than I should have. "Get it? Pink Floyd?"

"Fuck off." She muttered and hummed along to the lyrics to In Bloom.

"Watch your tone with me, or I'll give you a whooping, young one."

"You are so weird." She muttered and I ran and jumped on her.

"Oh god, get off me you fatty." She groaned and I cuddled into her.

"Hey, that's rude. And I'm gonna stay because I love youuuuu," I smiled stupidly and played with her hair.

"Yeah, you're lucky I love you too."

"YES! SOMEONE LOVES ME!" I cheered and rolled off of her, but I apparently didn't plan it out well enough because I landed with a thump on the ground. I stood up and groaned while rubbing my butt. "That hurt." And I saw Eliana laughing at me.

"That, what the best thing I've seen all week." She laughed.

"Have I ever told you how much I hate you sometimes."

"I love you too, babe."

"Shove a cactus up your ass, you fucking prick." I pouted.

"Oh come on, I'm sorry." She said and opened her arms. I hugged her and he patted my head. "Now go to sleep, you big baby."

"Only if you stay with me."

"I promise, I'll be here when you wake up tomorrow." She smiled.
