Although a family reunion could have perhaps waited until Apollo was graduated, Athena found she had too much time on her hands. And what better way to spend it than with her brothers, because of course she was dragging useless, mopey Ares along with her. If she didn't have practice, he also didn't have practice,. so he had no excuse to not join the meeting she was setting up. Except the part where he was being a brat and not cooperating, but Athena could deal with that. They might not be the closest siblings ever, but she knew enough to have some leverage over him if she needed it. It was the first thing she did when she met someone she knew would have a spot in her life outside of just passing. Security, if you will. It was definitely one of her less redeeming qualities, but she wasn't trying to impress anyone.
Instead she was dragging her older brother with her into the Hog's Head to meet their younger brother. This wasn't going to be a disaster at all. She could have picked somewhere else to meet up, but all of the other shops in Hogsmeade were more popular and she didn't feel like dealing with people and Apollo was still limited on where he was allowed to go during the school year. Maybe she should have actually waited. It was too late now though.
Shoving Ares towards a chair, Athena took one on the other side of the table, facing the door. She could tell having his back to the door made her brother uncomfortable, but he could deal with it today and trust her to watch his back while they waited for Apollo,

Apollo was apparently going to be meeting his siblings at the Hog’s Head. He said apparently as he was pretty sure if he didn’t show up, Athena would march into the castle and drag him out by his ankles regardless of what he was doing. She might not if he had Quidditch practice or something, but otherwise he couldn’t see her allowing for any other excuse. Thus, he figured he might as well humor his siblings and go get lunch with them. Besides, with him at school, it had been a while since the three of them had gotten together. Though, he’d soon see them all the time as he graduated in just a few months and he was kind of figuring it was likely he’d end up on the same Quidditch team as them. He supposed he could always be rejected and go somewhere else, but well he suspected he would end up with them. Then they’d spend all the time together and probably start hitting one another with bludgers out of annoyance. Maybe he should plan to move out immediately once he graduated. That way he didn’t have to deal with his siblings twenty-four seven. Though, how positive was he that he could deal with his place being set on fire in the middle of the night?
Anyway, he’d worry about that later, as for now he walked into the inn and immediately spotted his sister. He assumed that was the back of his brother’s head as well, so he made his way over. He briefly pondered trying to scare Ares, but he didn’t want punched in the nose so he would refrain. Also, he was pretty sure Athena would tell him that Apollo was here before he got a chance to startle his brother. He wandered over and plopped into a seat next to Athena. Maybe his siblings wouldn’t notice how tired he looked, it was doubtful, but he could hope at least that they wouldn’t comment on it. Though, if they did, he could always use the excuse of schoolwork instead of telling them he just wasn’t really sleeping. Though, it would probably become obvious as soon as he was back home in the summer. “So, what have you two been up to? Run into each other on brooms lately?” he asked with a slight smirk at his siblings.
