As Nova and Hermione walked back to the compartment, Hermione stopped right between the rooms so no one could see them . When Nova turned to look at her, he saw that she had that look on her face like she wanted to ask him something but wasn't sure if she should .

"Ummm . . . " Hermione tried to say, but kept looking like around in different place aside from his face . As she tried to walk off, Nova blocked her path .

"Hermione is there something you would like to ask me? You may never get another chance to do so . " Nova looked at her and tried not to laugh as she kept trying to walk around him . Hearing him say this she stopped and took a deep breathe .

"Nova can you let me see your eyes . I want to see what is under the glasses since it seems you are trying to hide something . " Hermione looked at him .

Nova had a look of surprise on his face, and then started to laugh, "Is that what your all nervous about, here I thought you were about to pour out your undying love to me . Hahaha!"

Hermione then stomped her foot and said, "No way I am being serious here . I want to see them . "

"No . You can't, the level of danger that it would pose is too strong . The effect it would have on your soul would be tremendous . Just looking at it for a few seconds could literally cause permanent damage to your mind and soul . Only a person with a ridiculously strong soul or one that is beyond damaged would be able to look at my eyes . "

"Well I have a strong soul and spirit . I can handle it . " Hermione protested .

"No you don't . "

"How do you know? Can you see my soul?"

"Nope . Nice chat though . We finally arrived . Good job at helping kill some time . " Nova quickly ended the conversation and went into the compartment and sat down, leaving Hermione to steam and fume at his response and with a stamp of her foot walked in and sat down . On the opposite side of Nova refusing to even say another word to him .

While they waited for the train to come to a complete stop, Nova looked out the window in deep thought . He had been in this realm for almost a month and a half and he still was unable to sense his wife's soul apart from the fragment that had been in the wand artifact . The other thing that bothered him was what Hermione had said how he could see her soul . And in truth he wasn't able to see hers, nor anyone else in this world, which disturbed him greatly . The only bit of soul he could see were the fragments inside of the wands . There was something about this world that was blocking part of his ability, the only thing he could attest to it was the seal that he commanded the Sanctuary to put on the world or his wife soul had some effect on these humans in this realm that he didn't know of . Or some other reason he couldn't think of .

"E- excuse me . " Nova felt a tug on his sleeve . He looked over and saw that it was the boy who lost his toad .

'What was his name again . . . . Oh that's right Neville . ' Nova thought to himself .


Neville responded, "We stopped and people are getting off the train, and your companion left, so . . . I, um . . . " Neville started having trouble talking to Nova and was freezing up and trembling .

Nova quickly realized the issue was that he had subconsciously release his presence into the surroundings as he was lost in thought .

"Thank you for letting me know . " Nova hid his power back into himself, stood up and walked out of the train, leaving a stunned Neville to stumble out of the compartment behind him .

(Poor Neville)

When Nova got off the train, he heard a lot of people talking and moving around and then a lamp came bobbing over the heads of the students, and heard a voice: "Firs' years! Firs' years over here!" When Nova walked over he saw the giant man with a mess of hair over his face and fur pelts as what seemed to be his clothes . Nova almost immediately knew this man was part giant as to how much given his small size . He didn't know . Nova then saw Harry and Ron talking with the man and went over toward that way .

"C'mon, follow me -- any more firs' years? Mind yer step, now! Firs' years follow me!" The group of first years, then followed the man down a small path and with some tripping and stumbling, they rounded a corner . Then the narrow path had opened suddenly onto the edge of a great black take . Perched atop a high mountain on the other side, its windows sparkling in the starry sky, was a vast castle with many turrets and towers .

"No more'n four to a boat!" the man called, pointing to a fleet of little boats sitting in the water by the shore . Harry and Ron were followed into their boat by Hermione and when Nova saw this he followed in with them . "Everyone in?" shouted Hagrid, who had a boat to himself . "Right then -- FORWARD!"

As the boats moved forward, Nova looked deep into the lake and saw that it was teeming with life . He projected his mind into the water and saw some squid like creatures hiding in the grass and some mermaids living in villages . He also saw a giant squid but other than that there wasn't anything too impressive . As they got closer to the castle, Nova brought his mind back to his body and stared in amazement at the castle . Now what Nova saw was the spells and magic that was laced throughout the entire building . All types of natural formations were engraved into the brick . Nova a first thought if might be the work of a master craftsman but upon closer inspection, he realized that the castle itself was a living artifact . As he looked he could tell that it was still young and that it was still developing its sentience . If he had to guess, Nova would say that the castle artifact was only a few hundred years old coming to life after absorbing the magical energy, making it only a building with the mind of a baby .

"Heads down!" was heard as the first boats reached the cliff; they all bent their heads and the little boats carried them through a curtain of ivy that hid a wide opening in the cliff face . They were carried along a dark tunnel, which seemed to be taking them right underneath the castle, until they reached a kind of underground harbor, where they clambered out onto rocks and pebbles .

"Oy, you there! Is this your toad?" said the man, who was checking the boats as people climbed out of them .

"Trevor!" cried Neville blissfully, holding out his hands . Then they clambered up a passageway in the rock after Hagrid's lamp, coming out at last onto smooth, damp grass right in the shadow of the castle .

They walked up a flight of stone steps and crowded around the huge, oak front door . "Everyone here? You there, still got yer toad?" Hagrid raised a gigantic fist and knocked three times on the castle door .
