A rarely told story is the one of Sapphi & Nova. After dating Niko Kovac and before getting back together with Tyler Martone, Nova had a lovely relationship with Miss Sapphi Barrigan. The two of them were together for four months before Sapphi– a traveler who had just happened to run into Nova during her time in Chicago– left for greater places. Her only explanation was a note that apologized and said ‘I love you’.
