Spirit Club consisted of a few things which Arne thought was a bit silly but there were a few aspects of it which he could appreciate the first being the parties they threw and the second being the short skirts which the girls now sported when they came to support the Quidditch teams. Yes, Arne could definitely get behind those, especially because the Spirit Club was full of really cute girls. Sure, he felt a little weird thinking some of the younger ones like Ayla Tremaine or Kit Reid (who was on the Aladren team and therefore didn’t have a Spirit Club uniform) were cute, but Farrah Welsh was only two years younger than him and the Head Boy and his girlfriend were two years apart so it was probably fine. Jake Manger seemed like a stand-up guy, after all, if not a bit too Tepp-ish.

It was a pity Farrah was an Aladren, he thought to himself as he watched the Spirit Club get ready for the match. Arne would have liked to see the second year in Crotalus-red. He shook his head, if he thought too much about the girls cheering them on then how was he supposed to focus on having a really good game? He swung his bat a couple times, testing his arm strength and the weight of the bat like how he did before every math at Sonora but also during pick-up baseball games in Turner’s Point.

Like usual, however, thoughts of the girls on the sideline began to disappear once the game began and Arne thought only of protecting the Chasers from Bludgers. When Alistair had opted to switch from Chaser to Seeker, he had left a team of unexperienced Chasers which Arne wasn’t sure if he agreed with. Alistair was a decent Seeker—he had caught the Snitch to bring them into the finals, after all. But there was something that bothered Arne about the way in which the establish Chaser put his desires to shine in front of the team’s cohesiveness. It was true that the possibility of either of the new Chasers being a great Seeker were low, but all the Seekers aside from Alistair were seventh years. Which meant that the next year they would all be turning over and Arne personally thought that strategically it made more sense for Alistair to stay a Chaser to fully and properly train and support the two other Chasers instead of being a sixth year Seeker competing against first year Seekers the next year.

Whatever it was, though, Alistair did not seem like the sort of captain who would take criticism—another things which deeply irritated Arne, and so he stayed silent and didn’t say anything. Arne knew he was a good Beater who worked hard. He had worked hard to help Sébastien Évreux improve his skill sets—annoyed that Alistair who had never played Beater before felt the need to also chip in on Arne’s position—Alistair was the Quidditch captain, not the coach, but he bit his tongue nonetheless. He didn’t like Alistair much but he wasn’t an idiot. He had seen how Alistair had taken Daniel Fintoc around with him to matches the previous year—something Captains usually did with their Assistant Captains and Arne wasn’t about to let Alistair do something that no one had done before and demote him in order to let the younger yesman take over the team. If that happened, he’d probably quit—Crotalus Quidditch would have lost all integrity if that were to happen.

He put all his frustrations into the Bludger that was coming his way and in doing to hit it with a loud SMACK! towards the Aladren Chasers away from Daniel Fintoc. Even if he didn’t want Daniel as his Captain, the younger boy was still his teammate and it wasn’t like he had meant to wrong Arne. Besides, it was Arne’s job to protect all the Chasers and if he didn’t do that well he couldn’t reasonably expect any Captain to be appreciative.
