I've been waiting for this

It had been a long summer. One in which he’d found he was growing for the first time in what seemed like a long time. It was also one that found him more uncomfortable being at home, but mainly because it seemed his parents were more uncomfortable with him being there. Or maybe he’d just imagined it.

So he’d found himself more and more working out in some fashion. His brother was surprisingly helpful in this. It seemed like his brother could see Parker’s weaknesses, and instead of exploiting them like he’d done before, he would help Parker improve. It felt weird to have that. He couldn’t remember what it felt like to have an older brother really, but he appreciated the help.

Still, he was always in his head, and part of that was because he couldn’t fly.

He assumed at least that he couldn’t fly. So when he saw the Quidditch signups on the wall he raced towards them. He was momentarily halted by the new coaches name. It seemed to him every year he’d been there something new was happening with Quidditch. Still, he could feel the need to get out and do something more than he’d literally ever felt before.

Had the quill hovering over the parchment for a while.
He could get the first three parts. His name, his year, and the fact that he was a Pecari. It was more a question of what position he wanted to play.
He remembered being reserve beater last year. He felt he’d been good in practice, though rarely played. Still it seemed to him that he wanted be a chaser. There was something exhilarating about it.
Then again, he’d not been able to practice on a broom all summer so he knew he’d not be as good as some of the other students. Still, maybe he could be?

He stood back looking at the other people who’d signed up. This was hopefully going to be a good year. He turned around to try to find Cleo and congratulate her.
