Neville L.

In the wee morning hours of the day, Neville was up and fully awake, praying to the Altar of Ra like a monk in meditation. Concentrated and fully comitted to his prayers, the only part of his that moved was his lips that were reciting the words of the prayers in the magical language.

Out of nowhere, a ring or fire erupted into the air above the altar. Neville was quickly distracted and looked up at the ring, which had filled itself with an image of a group of red robed wizards.

"'Tis this Neville Longbottom, the only Pyromancer in England?" asked one of the wizards, who appeared to be pyromancers themselves.

"Yes, I am Neville Longbottom," Neville replied. A little confused about how communications could be done this way, Neville just went with the flow.

"Brother Neville, we are the leaders of the Pyromancy magic, from Heliopolis. We must gather our kind together for an important meeting regarding our religeon."

"Important meeting? How can I get there? I cannot leave my place, for I will be hunted down sacrificed to the Dark Lord."

"Do not worry, come to Istanbul, a major city run by the Ministry and they are fighting against the Dark Lord. Only Istanbul and vatican City are the safest places for you to travel to in Europe, so you must be very careful elsewhere. But we will have the meeting in Istanbul, in the Topkapi Palace, we will provide you a portkey that transfers you from wherever you are to us."

All of a sudden, a flash of golden light emitted out and formed the shape of a golden skeleton key. This was the portkey, all he had to do was touch it and he was off, but he felt that he needed to talk with the others about it first.

"Thank you, but give me time, my priorities lie with my friends at the moment, I will talk with them before I arrive, if I arrive. Give me time, I ask of you."

"That is alright. We realie that you must help your friends and we respect that. Take all the time you need, but remember that the meeting is on going, arrive whenever you wish."

"Thank you very much" And with that, the fire ring disappeared, with the key lying on the floor. As long as he didn't touch it, he would remain here. But he needed someone to go with him, he still didn't feel safe going alone, but he needs to talk with the others before anything happens.

Ginny walked toward Neville’s room. Just a few minutes ago when she had been checking up on Draco and Luna the temperature had increased quite a bit. It had been two minutes ago and she already couldn’t stand it!

“Neville!” she banged on the door to his room, “Neville open up!”
"Yes Ginny? You need something?" Neville asked.

"Come in" Neville offered, into the temple area of the room.
Ginny stepped in cautiously.

“Thanks..I can’t stay long,” she said looking around the decorated room.

“I just-" she looked back at him, realizing the temperature had suddenly gone back to normal. “It was, really hot a few seconds ago…” she trailed not quite sure what to say now.
"Oh, that," Neville remembered. "You won't believe what happened. Other pyromancers can talk to me through fire! That is why it became so hot, the fire. Well, they want me to visit them in Istanbul soon for some meeting or whatnot, I need to discuss it with everyone. I think Blaise and Harry would want to accompany me."
Ginny stared at Neville for a moment, not quite comprehending what he was saying.

“wow, Istanbul?” she said a bit confused, “what do they want you there for? And yes, I doubt they would want you go by yourself…”
"Some meeting about pyromancers. It looks very interesting. Besides, they say Istanbul is the safest place to visit, in my situation, net to Vatican City."
“Really?” Ginny asked, interested, “it’s safe there? It’s nice to know there are still some safe places to go to,” there was an odd pause.

“You know, I don’t think I’ve really talked to you since I got here,” Ginny noted, “you never did tell me, how have you been?”
"Well...I've been...having a lot of mixed feelings and some issues. Slowly things are getting a bit better. My mind has been all messed up and now that the Serpent Hole is getting cleaner, so is my mind"
“That’s good,” she said smiling at Neville, “I have to say I was a little worried about you for a while there…” she trailed off slightly, suddenly frowning. “You know, I know this sounds silly but I think remember seeing you, or at least I think so, sometime ago. I don’t exactly remember but there’s just something in the back of my head telling me I saw you not too long ago…I must sound crazy,” she smiled a little bit with a slightly nervous laugh.
"Oh really?" Neville said. "I have the same feeling. Were you ever in Egypt a while back?"
Ginny froze for only a moment.

“Yes, I was in Egypt a while back. So maybe I did-" Ginny was interrupted by a strange sort of sound coming from the other side of the door.

“What is that?” Ginny asked shocked, as she heard the sounds of clawing on the door.
"Wait...I can hear it too, what's going on?"
Ginny frowned, walking over slowly and opened the door hesitantly.
All of a sudden, a brightly coloured peacock strutted into the room. As it did so, the feathers changed from blue and green to a bright red, it was a phoenix sent by Ra to guard the place.

"Sir Neville, we detect aura from a dark mark around here," the phoenix said, speaking in a language different from any other in the world.

"Really? Well, you can take care of it then," Neville said, giving permission for the traps and such to be prepared. All of a sudden, the phoenix turned its head and eyed Ginny for a long while.

Jumping into the air, the phoenix started squaking and cawing while flapping in the air around Ginny.

"Stop!" Neville cried out. The phoenix landed, still eyeing Ginny suspiciously, and then calmed down. Neville looked at Ginny, slightly terrified, then he thought. He realied what was going on, and he realized why he saw Ginny in Egypt. But will be attack one of his best friends?

"My command is that nobody attacks or harms my friend, Ginny. Do whatever else, but I want her unharmed."
Ginny who had stumbled back onto a wall was trembling as the bird backed away from her.

“What’s going on Neville? What’s the bloody bird doing!?” Suddenly Ginny realized why.

‘oh gods…’ she thought.
