Tari lit the candle from one already burning, a small blush mantling her cheeks. Oliver watched her steady hands, wondering why she wasn't shaking.

She has accepted her fate... Oliver thought and helped himself to a piece of apple.

"Come to Hogwarts Celena!" Oliver said after he swallowed his bite.

He watched her face fill with pain, "I cant Oliver!"

He got off the couch and knelt beside her and looked in to her eyes.

"You can Celena! You told me you could! If you were careful" Oliver started and noticed she made move to open her mouth so he continued. "Your scared of what people would think not of what would happen."

"Wouldn't you be Oliver?" she whispered harshly. "Im mostly scared of burning, of dying but how would they treat me? A witch forced to live in the muggle world, home schooled."

"They don't need to know, the only house that would be bothered, would probably be Slytherin. Gryffindor, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff will accept you always. I have only known you a couple of days but I know your no Slytherin. Go for one semester! One month! You will regret it for the rest of the time you live!" Oliver backed away and looked at his watch. It read 2:00 am; he scowled and looked down at the silent Celena.

"Tari, you are a Gryffindor to the core. We are brave; you are our midnight Lioness. Please come?" Oliver finished wondering why she was driving him so much.

"Oliver..."She whispered voicelessly. Oliver nodded and went towards the stairs.

"I have to go, thanks for the snack and drink." Oliver said and opened the door going upstairs.

He went and put on his shoes and went outside.

"You tried boy, and I thank you for that. But who are you?" a male voice piped up outside. Oliver looked around his wand in his hand, wondering who was out.


Tarien scooped up her cat and cuddled up on the couch.

"So Lunar? Whatcha think? Should I go?" she asked her cat as Chaos jumped up and lay at her feet.

She sat pondering for a long while.... She booted up her computer there was no way she could sleep now.

"Sorry sir but who are you?" Oliver asked politely as a man came out with Tari's hair color.

"Im Celena's father, Johnathan Baxton." He held out his hand for Oliver to shake.

"Wood sir, Oliver Wood." Oliver took the hand as the man sat down and pointed to the bench beside him.

"You must be the man Albus spoke to us about," Mr. Baxton said quietly to Oliver. "I don't want to keep you long, for you already is very late. I thank you for trying to get her to go to Hogwarts, Oliver I truly do. We all have tried for she talked of going ever since she could talk. But something has happened and she shut her self off from her dreams. She only ever talks to her friends she met at XP camp, Shayla and Kim but Kim died today and I don't know what she will do. Oliver just be her friend that's all she needs."

"I plan to do that sir," Oliver replied and got up to get going.
"And Oliver?" Mr. Baxton called out.

"Yes?" He turned around to face him.

"Her email is if you want to talk to her." Mr. Baxton went inside.

"No worries sir, I will." Oliver muttered and left.


Celena booted up her MSN and frowned slightly. Shayla wasn't on, she almost always was.

Tari smiled. Star Gazer was a girl from camp, named Sam and Cassiopeia's Princess was a girl named Kel who Tari met at the camp as well. She opened a conversation box between the three of them. And began to type.
