Whoa indeed
Sat Jul 30, 2016 06:03

"You missed it?" Jamie asked, with open mouthed incredulity. Although he quickly got over it, as Ben's next question was just the opportunity he'd been waiting for...

"So, I was marking Jake pretty closely - it doesn't matter how good you are if you're at one end of the pitch and the Snitch shows up by your rival's head, your done" he explained, lest Ben should think he'd been sticking by Teppenpaw's Seeker through lack of confidence. "But then I saw it. Glinting down about midway between us and the Chasers. But I couldn't look directly at it - gives the game away if you snap your head round suddenly. It's pretty tough to learn that kind of control because that's such a natural instinct. But I moved round, like I was stretching out a crick in my neck, just having a little, casual look around to get my eyes on it properly, make sure I was right. I was. But I still didn't want to give the game away to Jake, so I kept left, diving well at angle but watching it all the time out of the corner of my eye. I've worked a lot on my timing over the years," Jamie added, enjoying the rapt attention he imagined he had from someone as young and impressionable as Ben, "So I knew just the right second to turn, so sharply I nearly got whiplash, and snatch it right out of the air," he grinned.

"And now we get to play the final. Excitied?"
