Clark returned to the starting point of his pattern and began it again for the second time just as Sammy cracked her bat on the bludger and shot it back his way again. John was there this time, though, and Clark continued on, trusting his teammate and looking around for the snitch, his first real chance to do that much this game. Jamie was a good distance away, far enough that he was hoping that the snitch would show up quickly now while Jamie was too far off to even try to overtake him, not to mention distracted by John's second return shot.

He moved through his pattern, flying quickly, forgetting that he wanted to take it slow at first, but at this point, he just wanted to cover more ground and search more area during this probably short window while he didn't have a shadow marking him too closely and the nearest bludger was still busy passing between Sammy and John.

Unfortunately, there was no early flicker of gold to be seen, and as John positioned himself a little farther away, Clark felt it necessary to slow down his pace. His guardian and friend was still positioned to protect him from Sammy yet, but if the Pecari Pierce decided to come at him from where the Chasers were, he'd need to provide most of his own initial defense. It was too hard to watch for both snitches and bludgers at the breakneck pace he'd just been using, and he couldn't risk overlooking the winged golden ball during a moment of defensive distraction.

However, he'd now nearly gained point B on his pattern map and he was back on his primary Seeking plan, the Quaffle hadn't gotten near Lena yet, and so all was shaping up very nicely for Aladren's chances this game.

    The deflection of his Bludger was unwelcome, but not altogether unexpected. What was unexpected was the glimpse of Meeks’ expression John caught as he flew after it again. He had only seen it for a... more

        Bad news: she was gonna have to back down first from the little game of pseudo-catch she played with John. Jamie needed to mark Clark, which meant sending Bludgers at the Aladren Seeker’s face was no ... more

          Jamie was expecting the bludger to be sent hurtling down into the Chaser game (though, as they were dominating with the Quaffle right now, perhaps it was better that it didn’t - this fact, however,... more

            Clark looked back at the sound of the bat meeting bludger, but it was just Sammy again, and John would take care of that one. Clark kept going. After another few seconds, he glanced back again to see ... more

              For a moment, John thought Sammy was, indeed, going to send the Bludger back to him, something he found a little disappointing. The one thing he respected about her House was, after all, that they... more
