Rolling up my sleeves. [tag John]
Sat Mar 25, 2017 13:23

Since Jack had started struggling with panic attacks over the summer, he had wondered whether or not joining the Quidditch team would be in his best interest, and their best interest. He wasn't certain when the attacks would begin, but he had decided he loved the sport too much. It would be torture not being able to play and watching everyone else do what he loved.

He'd been waiting patiently for the role of Assistant Captain after becoming Prefect. As it had been for many, many years, traditionally it would go to the next oldest Quidditch player. If there was a tie, then it was up to the captain to decide. As Jack didn't have any competition in his year, he was looking forward to his appointment.

However, the signup sheet was up before John had talked to him about anything, and he soon realised that he had been passed over for Louis. Not only was it completely unfair, but he didn't understand what John had against him. He felt himself go red as his blood boiled at the unfairness of it all. Jack took a few deep breaths in front of the noticeboard, trying to calm himself down. He'd never gotten so angry before so quickly, but he tried to reason with himself. John must've made a mistake, or if there was a problem between them - one that Jack did not know of - then he wanted to amend it fast.

Jack lingered in the common room until he saw his house-mate. He stood up quickly and called out his name to stop him. "Hey John, I had a question," he said, his heart pounding. "Did you purposely choose Louis over me for Assistant Captain?" He felt like his head was swimming in the face of this confrontation with someone he respected. He just needed to know: "Why?"
