Parker Fitzgerald
Time to fly
Thu Feb 8, 2018 21:18

Parker had now eaten a bit and he felt a bit more of himself. As he walked back into the Pecari Commons he was thinking about what to do this year. Since it appeared there would be no Gardening Club this year, and since his adventure buddy was gone, he knew he would have to get rid of his energy somehow, and so Quidditch was going to have to be it.

After getting physically beaten last year in the last game, Parker had decided he would try to get a bit stronger this year. Taking a hit was something he knew he'd have to get better at if he was going to play. When he had asked his mother what he could do, she had first made him promise to go to the Hospital wing to get a check up. Once he had promised her 100 times that he would, and say that he would send her the results, she told him foods to eat and some simple exercises that work for "us non-magical people". His mom had started saying that a lot since last Christmas break.

Parker wasn't sure if he would be all that different physically from his other family members, but he also didn't know he wouldn't be. Either way he had taken to running a bit and doing push ups. Not many, but he was now up to 10 in one go. His dad had suggested something called a burpee, but Parker had done 10 of them once, and he hated them so hadn't done them since.

Walking into the Pecari Commons after walking around the gardens and throwing a token into the wishing well, Parker saw the sign up sheet and ran over to it. Ingrid had a lot more skill with the magic writing he could see. He was particularly impressed by the warthog picture, he kind of wanted the picture on the wall of his room.

Parker both laughed and winced at the mention of bruises. He knew he was going to get some more if he played chaser, but this year, the time he would have spent at garden club, he'd probably spend trying to get better at taking a ball to the gut.

Parker Fitzgerald, 2nd Year, Bruised One and Chaser

He smiled as he finished signing up. At least one thing would remain the same this year.

      The Welcome Feast was so long and Mikey was so full from it that he was ready to pass out. There were only two people in his year, him and another guy, which was depressing. But at least he would... more
