Better Late than Never
Wed Oct 12, 2016 16:53

It was no secret that Quidditch teams were always looking for players. Despite Teppenpaw having a reserve player last year, Lena wasn’t aware of any teams having had back up players. Lena thought she vaguely remembered Clark worrying about making a full roster this year. Two Aladren players had graduated the year before, so they would definitely be short two this year if no first years signed up. Knowing how important Quidditch was to Clark she decided with ease to sign up for the Aladren team this year.

She planned to sign up in her third year, but then she had gone through a particularly rough bout of anxiety and school related stress and put it off. When she had a firmer grasp of her schoolwork again, she had talked herself out of it, thinking Olivier would probably not approve. When they had gotten into whatever funk they were in, she had taken up archery with Aiden- and even that he had not approved of. But Clark would approve. Clark would probably be happy and making Clark happy would in turn make her happy.

Plus she loved flying. It was freeing in a way that staring up at the sky got close to but never quite matched it. She hadn’t been much of a Quidditch player, but she was good at flying. She flew like she walked- maybe better than as she was actually quite a languid walker.

Taking out a quill she signed her name

Lena Westley, Seventh Year,

She hesitated. She would prefer being Keeper but she wasn’t sure if that’s what was needed. She didn’t want to be a chaser. That was a little too fast paced for her. She could deal with being a beater, but. . . Keeper just seemed better in every aspect. She sighed, adding any. She’d have fun regardless, and Clark and she would be on a team together. That was more than enough.
