Is there a gift return area?

Soft one way, spikey the other. Parker fingered the feather again in his pocket.

Last game Parker hadn’t played particular well. He hadn’t been terrible, but he had not been at his best, and he was determined to play better this game. The first game they had won, he had the piece of the Juniper tree in his pocket. The second game he had nothing. He decided, since he was going to be flying around, maybe the feather was the best to have in his pocket this time.

He checked his broom having it lift on and off the ground and walked out. Parker hadn’t thought about what this game might mean for the older students, but as he saw the other captain start to tear up. He realized that this was probably a big deal for all of them, and thought that Sammy had done a lot for him, like made him a Chaser, and thus giving him an even bigger reason to do better this game.

Parker had had rules he was to follow the first game, but had thrown them out and had done well. Last game he had been too comfortable maybe, or had been thinking too much about the weird time spent at home. Either way, he hadn’t been fully there, but this time his adrenaline was going.
This was it. This was the game to end the season.

He pushed off only to find an elbow into the side of his face and someone or something hitting the back side of the broom. Not wanting to turn around to look at what it was Parker shook his broom a bit to see if it would shake things away. As he looked around for the Quaffle, Parker assumed he probably looked like some kind of weird bird.

A sharp crack caused Parker to turn his head as he saw the Bludger sail past him towards one of the players.
“Good,” Parker thought for a second, one less thing to worry about.

He saw Ingrid get close and steal the ball away.

“A turn over! Great Start!” Parker thought just as he heard the sharp crack again, he turned around to see the Bludger flying at him. Trying to turn away from it Parker instead turned himself so he was staring head long into it. This wasn’t going to be good. Thinking of anyway to dampen the effects Parker opened his arms as if to hug the Bludger.

Mere milliseconds before impact right into his chest, the thought, “Ouch” reverberated through Parker's head. Shaking loose more than a few cobwebs, though not enough.

It wasn’t so much the pain of metal slamming into his body that hurt so much, though that was definitely “a thing”, it was more the feeling that he was letting people down.

Parker felt his body slumped down on his broom. He was trying to catch the wind that had been knocked out of him and think of a way to make his body sit back up straight. At least his arms weren’t hurt. He just couldn’t move them.

“At least I didn’t fall off my broom,” Parker thought as he slowly felt himself leaning towards the left and down, taking his broom with him.

“Oh…” was all he could think, as he tried to get back up into sitting position.
