A little too ambitious

Every year, Eden surprised herself a little with her excitement for the new Quidditch season. This year was particularly surprising as she beelined to the sign up. It was weird that it was in the Cascade Hall and not Teppenpaw, but that was quickly clarified by the fact that Sonora was only compiling one team this year. The blonde swallowed. She wanted her spot.

When her House had combined with another, she’d kept it because she had a winning record. She still had one, boasting more victories than defeats in her short career in the skies. Eden was good. Somehow. She still didn’t know how she was such a natural at it. But it was fun - admittedly, it was most fun because she was usually winning - and it honored her father who, despite having died the summer before her first year, still somehow sent her a new broom each other and a note, implying that he knew what had happened in the latest matches. She still had no idea how he was doing it; the broomstick delivery could’ve been preplanned, but how his letters knew so much was simply beyond her. But honestly, Eden had decided that she didn’t care how. Her father was still with her somehow, and it made her feel safe.

She raised her eager quill to the sign up, pleased to see she was the first name on the list.

Eden Manger,
Teppenpaw,
Fourth year


The fourteen year old added a check under Seeker, then paused, considering. She added a check under

Captain.

If it was up for claims, she might as well try. And sure, she was young, but she won games. The new coach might not necessarily know that, but, well.. It couldn’t hurt to try, right?
