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

Twelve years and a lot has changed. Twelve years and I'm still not over what happened May 2nd, 1998. Twelve years, and my daughter was eleven years old, and about to get on the Hogwarts Express.

"Are you sure you're alright, mum?" Venus asked, her red hair bouncing as she walked beside me.

"I'm fine, love."

"I wouldn't say that." Eli said, and grabbed my hand. She had a hold of our other daughter, Rhea's hand. "But you're doing great." She leaned over and kissed me.

I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. Four years ago, once George reassured me that Fred would've wanted me to move on, I wasn't sure. But Eliana was one person who never gave up on me. She was always there and she would never, ever leave me. And I realized I loved her. About a year after we got together, we adopted the little three year old names Rhea and just last year, we got married.

To our surprise, within the next two years, she started doing magical things, and we all knew she was a witch, as well. "Nervous is all. Even though I had the best time there, and the school was in good hands, I can't help but think." I whispered.

"I know, love. I know."

"Teddy!" Venus exclaimed as she ran up to the pink haired boy next to the all too familiar Andromeda Tonks.

"Morning, you four." She smiled at us and I hugged her. "How've you been?"

"Good, good. Yourself?" I asked.

"Great," she smiled.

"Come here and give your godmother a hug." I smiled and Teddy ran to hug me tightly. Andromeda and I took turns. She got him one year, and I got him the next. We obviously saw him other times, and he stayed the night a few times at the others house, but it was a good idea. I liked it.

He often stayed with Harry and Ginny, as well. "Mom," I heard Rhea ask. I looked at Eli, thinking she was talking to her, but Rhea was staring at me.

"Yes, sweetheart?" I asked and she looked around.

"When will I get to go and meet Professor Neville and Professor McGonagall?" She asked. I smiled and picked her up.

"In a few years, baby, but don't worry. They'll fly by." I said and  she smiled. She was a beautiful little girl, but you could tell she was adopted. She had dark brown eyes and a medium brown hair colour. Her face was more rounded where I, along with Eli (hence the whole pure-blood thing) both had a thinner, pointed face.

"Really?" She asked.

"Really," I whispered and kissed her head. She smiled and hugged me and I've never felt more proud in my life. These are my two kids. My babies. I've raised them with the help of my family, and they'll turn out just as brave and wonderful as the rest of their family. I'm sure of it.

"Come on, the train leaves in a few minutes." I said and the bunch of us walked over to the train. Rhea jumped out of my arms and gave her sister and Teddy a hug.

"You'll have to tell me stories when you get back." She said to the pair of them. I smiled and looked at Eli, who was watching the two like myself.

"Of course we will." Her sister smiled. The two of them got along so well, it was nearly unbelievable. "Mum, mummy." She looked at us and we laughed.

"Yes, Venus?"

"I love you guys." She said and hugged me tightly. She did the same to Eli and then Andromeda. Teddy took his turn for hugs and I couldn't believe that they were already going to Hogwarts for their first year.

I bent down and looked at the two of them and whispered. "You guys will have to keep on the legacy of Fred and George Weasley, and The Marauders. Can you do that for me?" I asked, and they nodded enthusiastically. "I love you guys. Stay safe, and tell me if you get into any trouble. The kind I don't want you to get in." I said and they laughed, but nodded again. "Write to us all the time. I hope you guys have just as much fun as we did." I said and kissed each of their heads.

They both got on the train and waved as it took off. I could only remember back when I got on the same one with Fred and George and all the others. I looked down at Rhea and she was smiling, which caused Eli and I to smile as well. Eli looked at me and kissed me softly and I felt accomplished, but scared at the same time. I had a wonderful time at Hogwarts, and I know they will, too.

As we walked out of Kings Cross Station, I smiled and looked up at the sky. Even though I was finally able to move on and start a family, I would never forget what happened all those years ago. Never. So, every year, on May 2nd, which is the anniversary of The Battle Of Hogwarts, and also the day Fred and I got married, I went to visit all the people I lost during the dark times. Lily, James, Remus, Tonks, and Fred and gave then an update on how everything and everyone was doing. Even though they couldn't hear me, I did it anyway. It made me feel as though they were still here with me.

Hand in hand with Eli and my youngest daughter, we walked back to the house we shared. I sat back on the bed Eli and I shared and pulled something out that I hadn't looked at in years.

My photo album. The one Remus gave me.

But now, there was so many new pictures that I've grown to love just as much as the old ones. New ones that made my heart beat faster and my stomach get all weird just like the ones taken such a long time ago. I found the picture of Fred, George and I and I smiled. Even if it was a sad smile, it was a smile, nonetheless.

I thought back to everything we went through and I thought of how thankful and lucky I was. I smiled and ran my fingers over the picture and my heart broke. "I love you, Fred Weasley. And I hope you always know that."
