Chapter 8


Sorry for being away .

I had to take care of midterms

which were SOOO much fun . T^T


After leaving Ollivander's, Nova look at the supply list to make sure that he had everything on the list and after leaving Diagon Alley looked to see if the Grangers were still around . Upon seeing that they had already left much like he had asked them to, Nova hailed a cab and started to head back .

When arriving at the Granger's house, after getting off the cab, Nova grabbed his stuff and paid the driver . Seeing he taxi leave, Nova just shook his head, he couldnt believe how slow it was driving in the human vehicles . As he walked into the door, Ian and Rose greeted him and offered him a plate of cookies and tea since they were sitting down in the living room . Taking up their offer Nova sat down and looked over and saw Hermione sitting in a chair reading one of the books she just bought . When Nova looked at it, he saw that the cover read, Hogwarts: A History . With the way she looked while reading it, Nova could tell it would be her favorite in the future .

Looking up to see Nova in the room, Hermione said, Proffessor McGonagall left a note for you . " She then handed a envelop to Nova . When he opened the letter, out came a ticket and small note which read, " Enclosed you will find your ticket for the train at platform 9 ¾ . The train leaves promptly at 11:00 on September 1st . "

Nova nodded his head . He then sat down on the other side of Hermione and started to read his new books . After a few hours, Nova had covered a few of the basic books, the one he found most interesting was the book about potions and he different herbs and fungi .

He eventually got tired of it and went into he kitchen to help the Grangers prepare he food for dinner . Though he didn't really need to eat, the concept of eating food was new to him but he found it an enjoyable experience . After eating Nova went up to the room he was staying in and stretched out his wings after making sure the door was locked . When Nova looked at his wings, he saw that they were healing nicely an estimated they would take a few more days or a week at most . After folding them back up, he went to sleep .

And like that the days slowly passed . Many days Nova took out a few of the books to read and often time was joined by Hermione to both read the same book . Often times Nova saw Hermione trying to practice in secret a few of the spells that was in the Book of Spells: Grade 1 . What Nova found when he watched her practice was the she was very gifted in making the spells, but he could see that she was nervous and didn't want to be a burden when she got to the school .

On August 31st, they packed up all their supplies and got ready for the next day . While Nova, stored the majoriy of the supplies in side his ring, he still kept the trunk out with some of the clothes inside of it . Hermione on the other hand kept packing and repacking, making sure that she had everything after second guessing herself multiple times . After finally making her stop and taking the trunk from her did Hermione relax .

When they woke up the next day, they loaded the stuff in the car and headed to London . When they got to Kings Cross, the Grangers and Nova unloaded out of the car and headed inside . When they got inside and looked for the Platforms, the found 9 and 10 but the Grangers had never heard of a ¾ platform . When Nova looked at the platforms, he saw that there was a gate on the pillar between 9 and 10 .

"Hermione it's over here . " Nova told her and pointed to the wall .

"How do you . . . " As she was about to ask, Hermione and Nova saw a family of 3 walk into the pillar and vanish . Before she can say anymore, the clock on the wall chimed 10 o'clock . So they said their good byes and pushed the carts to the wall and went through it .

What greeted them on the other side, was a bright red locomotive with train cars connected . As they navigated through the groups of people, the two started to load the luggage on the train and then they sat down in a empty car . As they waited for the next hour waiting for the train the leave the station . Nova sat in the corner of the window and looked out the window . As he looked, he saw more and more people piled, and gradually the train started to fill up with the new and old students ready to start the new term . Seeing all the people fill in slowly started to make Nova tired and after a little while later slowly fell asleep for a small nap .

While Nova slept a few more people came into the train . And after awhile he felt a tapping on his shoulder and heard from down the aisle, "Anything off the trolley?" being called by some elderly person . Nova then looked over at Hermione, who was still pulling his sleeve .

"Nova they are bringing a food cart, do you want anything?" she asked him . He looked over at the cart and did not see anything really worth eating and just looked at Hermione and told her, "No, did you want anything?"

Hermione just shook her head, Nova understood why her parents were dentist after all . After a few minutes, a boy, Neville, who was a little round and pudgy, suddenly got up and saw that his pet toad was missing . Nova didn't see any toad with his eyes in the cart but to help humor the boy and Hermione, he helped them out .

Neville suddenly stood up and ran out he door and started going down the aisle and started asking people if they had seen a toad . Nova just looked at Hermione as she looked at him, Nova could see what she wanted to ask .

"Ok we can go out, but let's make sure not to disturb others . " Nova nodded to her and saw that she had already changed into her uniform . Thinking that it was also a good idea pulled his robes out of his ring and threw the robes over his head and followed Hermione out of the car . As they walked through the train, with Hermione asking if anyone had seen a toad . After a while, they came upon a certain cart, seeing that Hermione ha stopped and was going in the area and sat down saying, "Are you doing magic?"

When Nova looked into the compartment, he saw two boys sitting down across from each other . One of the boys was red haired and freckled with a wand in his hand pointing at a rat . The other was skinny with glass and had black hair .

"Sunshine, daisies, butter mellows, turn this stupid, fat rat yellow . " When Nova heard this he looked back at the red haired boy and watched as he waved his wand and nothing happened . As Nova look analyzed the boy, he saw that he had the same amount of magic in him as most of the other children, well maybe a little less, and the nothing seemed to happen with the wand when chanting, upon closer look Nova saw that the wand was old, and damaged from continuous use and no proper maintenance .

While lost in thought, he sensed that Hermione had demonstrated how to use magic and couldn't help but chuckle when he saw how she seemed relieved that it had worked .

"By the way my name is Hermione Granger and he is Nova . And you are?" Hermione introduced herself and Nova .

"I'm Ronald Weasley . "

"Harry Potter"

The two boys introduced themselves . Hermione seemed quite excited .

"Are you really?" Hermione said . "I know all about you, of course -- I got a few extra books . for background reading, and you're in Modern Magical History and The Rise and Fall of the Dark Arts and Great Wizarding Events of the Twentieth Century .

"Am I?" said Harry, feeling dazed .

"Goodness, didn't you know, I'd have found out everything I could if it was me," said Hermione . "Do either of you know what house you'll be in? I've been asking around, and I hope I'm in Gryffindor, it sounds by far the best; I hear Dumbledore himself was in it, but I suppose Ravenclaw wouldn't be too bad . . . . Anyway, we'd better go and look for Neville's toad . You two had better change, you know, I expect we'll be there soon . "

"Hermione lets sit down and stay awhile . " Nova told her .

"But . . . " she tried saying .

Nova looked at her softly, "Look I know you want to help the boy with the toad, but since he knows it's on the train it is likely to turn up at the school like everyone else on board . Know come sit down next to me and relax . "

Looking a little uncertain, Hermione looked at Nova once more and then sighed and sat down once more .

He then turned to Harry and asked, "Would you like to see the books that Hermione was talking about?"

Harry looked at Nova and Hermione and after a few seconds of thinking, "Said it can't hurt . But wouldn't you have to go back to your luggage"

"Nova I didn't bring my books with me as carry on . " Hermione whispered to him .

"No worries I have them with me . " And with a wave of his hand, the books Hermione spoke of early appeared in his hand . When everyone saw this they were shocked .

"Nova how did you do this" Hermione said . As she was the one who was with Nova the longest but didn't know he could do this .

" Magic" Nova replied to Hermione with a flash of a smile . She immediately turned pink and looked away while mumbling something under her breathe . Nova then turned to Harry and passed the books to him .

"Here turn the pages to 195 and 206, and you will see the articles pertaining to you . Though you are famous people don't really know how you defeated this Dark Lord as a baby . It is mentioned a few time as you can see . "

As Nova talked, Harry started to read what the books said about him and Ron, as he liked to be called, went and moved next to him so he could read it as well .

"So do you know how you defeated the dark wizard?" Hermione asked . Harry just shook his head and said, "No I just remember seeing a lot of green light . "

Nova looked at Harry again, this time looking at his magic capacity, and was amazed, Harry seemed to have over double the amount of magic that a child his age should have . As he was about to look away something else caught his eye, " I don't think you were the one to defeat the wizard Harry . "

"What do you mean . Of course he did . " Ron immediately said .

"Calm down and listen to what I am say . Not that I doubt your friend but I don't believe a baby could have done it . From what I am seeing, a person cast a very powerful protection spell on you, Harry . And from what I am guessing is it must have been your mother . "

"Um, Nova, what do you mean my mother cast the spell? I was told my mother was killed before . " Harry tried to explain but was cut off .

"Hold on a minute, Harry . " Ron said, "What do you mean: From what you can see?"

"Nova can you please tell us" Hermione asked . She seemed confused and wanted to know what Nova was talking about .

"I have the ability to see magic . " Nova said .

"Is that why your wear the sunglasses Nova? You told us . . . " Hermione started talking, but stopped because she seemed to be confused . Nova realized that it might be the effects of his divine speech he had used on her and her family .

"Hermione, all I ever told you was that I have sensitive eyes and that the glasses helped . " Nova patiently explained . "That and the fact that my eyes seem to do something to people when I look at them is another reason why I keep them on . "

Turning back to Harry, "So know that you know my ability let me explain more . Right now, there is a image or projection of a woman with red hair wrapping her arms around you in a protective, loving way . Which is why I assume it is your mother . "

When Harry heard this, he seemed a little shocked and seemed to get a little upset . Ron was just looking in amazement to what Nova had said .

Before either one of them could finish processing a voice traveled through the compartment, "We will be arriving in the next 10 minutes . All students are advised to put on their uniform as soon as possible . Thank you . "

"Well you two need to get changed quickly . Hermione lets go back to our compartment . " Nova stood up and stored he books back in his ring while grabbing Hermione's hand leaving the two boys to scramble to put on the robes .


Ok couple of things to address:

I am trying for at least two chapters a day .

Some have told me MC needs a last name . Any suggestions? Please give request within the next few hours . Smith is an option, but I feel it is too common and generic . So be creative .

Also small spoiler, Nova is going to have #*%^*& number of &^%& following him . He is also going to forge a ^&%$*$* in order to have #@#$^% be his @$@!$%%^# .

Hope you enjoyed the spoiler .
