Better late than never!

For Louis, Quidditch was one of the few uncomplicated parts of his life. It was a release from worries and cares, a stress-free game where nothing else mattered, at least whilst he was in the air. Flying had always been an escape for him, and now he felt like he needed it more than ever.

Tensions were definitely running high in Louis’s life. His parents didn’t know the full details of his summer escapade, but they were aware that he’d abandoned the other society teenagers, and that was enough for Laurent Valois to be seriously angry. The summers at the dunes were an opportunity to create links which could lead to life-changing betrothals and alliances. Louis was meant to be eyeing up well-connected girls to marry, not running off and doing Merlin-knows-what. This had meant the end of the summer had been a tense one, with serious threats being thrown around, and far too many arguments for Louis’s mother’s peace of mind. The number of migraines she’d had would have worried anyone who hadn’t sussed out, at the age of four, that they were more a method of guilting Louis into behaving rather than a serious medical problem.

Coming back to Sonora was meant to be fun, but only a few hours after his return, the bombshell had been dropped. Professor Pye had reassured him that there had been no mistake and, whilst Louis felt quite proud of himself of gaining the badge, he still felt awful, knowing that it was a position Emmy had set her heart on since first year.

And now, finally, his refuge of Quidditch had been breached. Sure, it wasn’t the same as the last two conflicts – no one was threatening to remove him from Sonora, and Jack wasn’t his very best friend. Nevertheless, Jack was a good friend, and he felt guilty at the idea of getting the position when, really, it shouldn’t be his yet. There was no reason for Jack to be passed over. John had vaguely thrown out the idea of talking to Jack about it, which Louis was determined to do.

With that in mind, he didn’t even consider adding his potential new position to the sign-up sheet.

Louis Valois, 5th Year, Beater (or Chaser)

He wasn’t sure why he bothered to put chaser on there, as it was unlikely he’d return to his old position. He didn’t really mind which one he played, though, and it was probably a good idea to remind John that he was flexible.
