Eugene’s life had taken a rather odd turn from it’s old trajectory, when an old, odd looking man appeared at the door of his and his cousin’s flat and had told Eugene about his magic, about the school he would attend and how he was in fact a wizard. Eugene hadn’t believed any of it, someone was playing a prank on him, someone he went to school with had an older brother who had the means and they probably all thought that this was exceedingly funny. However, the magic he had seen the man do and the odd things that had happened around him had to be magic. The boy had asked that during his break in normal school if he could go to check out these areas, he hadn’t expected to be brought to a little village in the countryside. He had been given a couple of hours to explore before he’d be taken to Brightstone and he was suddenly wondering if this magic thing was an awful idea. He’d not been outside of Auckland before and he felt like he couldn’t be further from it. How far from Auckland was he? Was he still on the North Island, would he finally see some sheep that everyone else always went on about. Was wandering the small streets, pleased he hadn’t argued about bringing his bike, there wasn’t much to explore and he didn’t want to get lost in the surrounding countryside but he had of course brought his guitar.


Eugene was looking in the windows...well that was being generous….he was peering into the them, watching the different objects move on their own. He was currently in front of the book store, spotting how all the pictures moved, it was staring at a gif but it was on a book and nothing was powering it. ”That’s sweet as,” he couldn’t help but say out loud, since to him it very much was. This magical world was weird and he missed the smell of auckland but this could be quite cool. He continued on down the street, with it not taking him too long to actually finish looking at all the shops and he couldn’t help but think it would be neat to bring his cousin back something from this street. He didn’t have any money, any of the magical currency and generally probably not enough for anything. But magical people had to like music too, he could play a few songs, maybe get some of the currency and find a postcard or keychain cheaply in one of the shops for his cousin. He found a spot near the harbour and took his guitar out, he placed the beanie hat he’d been wearing and placed it on the ground in front of him. Eugene quickly tuned the guitar and then just began playing, he didn’t know if magical people had any awareness about muggle music, but it wouldn’t matter, maybe they’d give a little more thinking he’d come up with it himself.

Even though Nolan was born and raised with magic all his life, the magical world had still slightly weirded him out. There were still things that he was so used to, that would make him feel a little anxious. He knew he was going to a magical here in New Zealand, he always thought that he would be attending to the one in Scotland as his parents did. But he guessed that this would be easier for him to travel to and such. He had known bits and pieces about the school, as his parents told him bits and pieces of their experiences at Hogwarts. Even though he wouldn't admit it, he was a little nervous to be away from his family, especially his younger siblings. He hadn't really been out of town before without his family, so it was a little different.

His parents had decided that they were going to take him out of town to the obsidian harbour, as they called it. He wasn't sure what this place was, or why they were taking him out for. He just knew that he was going to be bored easily, so he thought to bring his small ukulele with him, to keep him entertained. Nolan was thinking of taking his guitar, but he thought it was a bit too big to take with him everywhere around the harbour. He also knew that his sister, Molly was just gonna annoy him with questions, so he knew that he was going to have to bargain her with lollies like he always did whenever they were going to go out. Nolan was slowly trailing behind his family, his
uke in hand (which he painted himself), when he heard the tune of guitar-playing nearby. He turned and followed to where the tune of the music was coming from, ignoring if his parents were wondering where he was. Nolan saw that there was a boy about his age where he was playing his guitar, and noticed a beanie laying near him, probably for money? Nolan wasn't sure but he stood near, listening to the music, actually getting into the beat of it. He had decided to throw in a couple of galleons into the boy's beanies, even though he was going to use it for his sister's lollies later, he didn't really care right now, he was enjoying the tunes. "That was cool! What song were you playing?" Nolan asked the boy when the song he was playing was over, his strong Irish accent coming in.

Eugene had busked before, it was something he occasionally did on a Saturday when he had a moment to. His cousin wasn’t always about but when she was she tended to sit with him, he knew it wasn’t what she’d want to do on her Saturday but he appreciated the company. He wasn’t sure how common it was in this world, but it seemed to be quite good. Some people put in some of that weird looking money into his hat and he was sure he’d managed to get a good amount or at least enough to buy his cousin a little something. He was careful to give the people giving money little smiles as they did so, he couldn’t thank them without getting too distracted or interrupting his singing. But he spotted the boy about his age giving money and stuck around a little until the song ended he knew he’d probably be able to thank him. When he finished before he could really even say anything, the other boy spoke with an accent Eugene knew wasn’t Kiwi but didn’t know where it was from.


”Chur bro,” he said first, trying to remember the word that old wizard had used to refer to his cousin, ”It’s song by a non-magical person,” He noticed then that the boy had a little ukulele or maybe a uke, did he play too? ”Do you play?” he motioned to it. ”Do you wanna play with me?” he moment he said it he realise he might not know the song that the other boy would play, he didn’t know how much music crossed that line between the two worlds. ”You can just start playing and I can just join in?” He offered. He was good enough at guitar at this point that he could just jump in, and maybe this boy would play something he knew.

Nolan smiled a little when the boy had used a word that he was a little unfamiliar with. He had always heard his classmates say this, yet he was a little confused on how the word was used, but he wasn't really going to ask about it right now. Nolan nods when the boy explains that it was a song from a muggle. "I thought so, it sounded familiar," Nolan says with a small smile. He had remembered hearing the familiar tune from the car radio a couple of times. Nolan's parents always had the car radio on whenever they were driving, and that's probably why Nolan had a huge interest in music.

Nolan looked down at his ukelele, or his uke as he liked to call it, as ukelele was too long to say in his opinion. "Oh yeah, I do. I also play a few other instruments as well," Nolan says with a small smile, his strong Irish accent lingering in. Nolan had learnt how to play a few different instruments as he was younger. His father had taught him most of them, like the guitar and the piano. "Uh, sure. I'm still a little rough though" Nolan says with a small shrug, as he positioned his uke to its side, so he was ready to play. The ukelele was one of the recent instruments that Nolan had decided to learn. Nolan nods when the boy suggests that he starts off. He thinks of a song that he had heard from the car radio until he had thought of one. Nolan starts to play a familiar tune, hoping that the boy was familiar with it.

Eugene gave a wider smile when this boy said he was familiar with it. Perhaps this boy was like him, entirely new to the magical world. Or perhaps just familiar with the muggle world, perhaps the music was better in the muggle world..perhaps he had a magical family and that was why he sounded like he did and not like any of Eugene's Auckland friends. ”Awesome,” he said to him, a clear cheerfulness on Eugene’s thick accent. When he mentioned he could play more than just the ukelele, ”Yeah? Sweet as!” Eugene said, he was quite eager to get to playing again, so would mention later perhaps that he too could play more than just guitar. He just didn’t want to boast too much in front of this kid, that wouldn’t be good of him. Eugene took a moment to just re-tune the guitar, he'd leave the beanie out in case others wanted to give more of the weird money.


”No worries bro, we’re just jamming out,” Eugene was sure this boy was good enough even if a little rusty, why would someone carry around an instrument if they couldn’t play it. Case and point his own guitar. Eugene was pleased that the tune that the boy began playing was one he knew, it was a song on the radio currently, so something Eugene could easily slot into with his guitar. He didn’t know it by heart so where he wasn’t sure just invented a little, keeping in time with the boy and keeping the harmony as best he could. However, instantly Eugene was smiling wider, if everyone in the magic world was like this boy, and it was as fun as this, all his concerns about being lonely or bored would be gone.

Nolan smiles widely when the boy starts to play along with him. He hadn't really played with anyone before. The only people he had played instruments with were with his brother and father. So this was a slightly different experience for Nolan, though he quite enjoyed it. Nolan was so into the music, he was feeling it, and started to move his body with the beat and strum of the music. He was so into it that he didn't realise that they were almost near to the last few notes of the song, which made him a little sad, as he enjoyed it so much. After he does his last strum on his ukelele, he lets out a relieved sigh.

"That was awesome!" Nolan exclaims with a chuckle. He had noticed that there were a few people around them listening around. But he wasn't sure if they had thrown any galleons and what not in as Nolan did to the boy previously. However, Nolan did enjoy that little session there. He had friends that weren't into music, so this had been a cool thing to do. Nolan wondered if this magical school he was going to next year allowed them to bring their instruments, he couldn't do anything without him bringing his instruments. He then turned back to the boy. "I'm sorry mate, I didn't catch your name. What's your name?" Nolan asked the boy, his usual Irish accent lingering around in his sentence. Nolan barely knew anyone, so he was glad that he had met someone from his small trip, then be walking behind his family. Which he didn't know where they were. But they could wait later, right now he was having fun.

Eugene liked playing with this boy, he was really good, where he thought he wasn’t that good at it or where he might be rusty and while he had played with others before, he hadn’t expected to play with someone in the magic world. It hadn’t been how he’d expected his first venture into the magic world to be. Eugene finished the song as the other boy did and smiled gleefully at the boy and nodded. He raised his hand as high five so they could high five to the way they had just played so well. ”Yea bro,” he agreed warmly. It would be so cool to be able to jam with him while at school if he too was going to this magical school Eugene had really only just learned about. Eugene didn’t know how much music would be at this school and he knew he’d at least have one person who could be interested in with him. He shook his head at the apology and then held his hand out to the boy, ”Eugene,” He replied, ”What’s your name?” he asked with a little interested tone. ”Do you wanna share the dough, you’ve definitely earned some of it,” he wouldn’t mind sharing the money, even returning the boy’s money to him for playing with him. Eugene could use half of it and get something for his cousin, even if it was super small.

Nolan smiles as the boy puts his hand up to show he wanted to do a high five and Nolan decided to high five him. He thought that they did really good, and the boy played the guitar really well. Nolan wondered if the boy was going to Hogwarts, the magical school his parents had kept mentioning about as he grew up. Maybe if the boy was going to the same school as him, they could jam out with music or something.

He smiles when he finds out that the boy's name is Eugene. "Nice to meet ya. I'm Nolan" Nolan says with a small smile, as he puts his hand out for a small handshake. Nolan thought about it for a little bit when Eugene had asked him if he wanted to share the money. He felt bad if he took half of it, as he was only there for a little bit of the time. "Nah, you can keep it," Nolan says with a small shake of his head and a smile. He felt that Eugene had deserved it more than he did. Again, he did enjoy playing with the boy. "How long have you played the guitar for? You're good!"
