With Chapter 10 comes the first Quidditch scene I have ever written and I’m really excited to see if people like it!
“The game’s going on without interruption, now Macnair for Slytherin – oh, loses the Quaffle to Desford… but – ah! Foul! How dare you?”
It was only a tiny moment, but obviously Macnair had pulled Desford’s broom, thus making her loose the Quaffle.
“It was nothing!” Maia yelled, while the Ravenclaws protested harshly, but to no use. Madam Hooch hadn’t seen it.
“That was – ugh, but now Macnair’s got the Quaffle again, passes it to Bole – and it’s in, Slytherin’s scored a goal.”
I took a deep breath of relief.
“That would’ve never happened if Macnair hadn’t… and poor Helena, she’s rather nice, accomplished Quidditch player and – yeah, yeah, so, Clearwater’s got the Quaffle – but, ah, has to move away from a Bludger and the Quaffle she wanted to pass to Desford gets stopped by Talkalot and she’s on her way to the goal and – in! Now, that was obviously Hitchin’s fault, the ball wasn’t even thrown that well…”
The Slytherins screamed in protest. The Quaffle had been thrown well or it would’ve never had been in!
“The wind’s starting to be a real problem, see how Jenny Boot is drifting sideways all the time…”
In fact, the Ravenclaw seeker obviously tried to stay at one place, namely the middle of the field high up in the air, but she drifted to the side immensely – every other moment, she had to return to her former position.
“Of course, that doesn’t happen to Black, finally they used their money for something reasonable and bought him a Nimbus 1001 – and there goes a Bludger in his direction, from Thomas Corner.”
The new chapter will be up on Saturday, March 2 under the following link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8877285/1/On-the-Fence.
Have yourself a lovely day :)
