Darla Applerose
I'll Join You in Your Anger
Wed Oct 6, 2010 15:18

Darla was angry. No, beyond angry. Furious. Her fears had been matched; she'd been put to the bench again. It was one thing to be captain of the team and not playing, but reserve Seeker?! Might as well throw her broom away and sit her on the sidelines! Merlin!

She'd show them. Show Alex, the coach she had been serving since her bloody first year here. Honestly! She hated this. Hated having a stupid, useless position, a stupid useless coach, on a team with a couple of stupid people. Merlin, she was so upset. What was she going to do? What was she going to tell her brother? Her friends? Oh yeah, I failed to make Seeker again. Failed. The word just burned through her mind. She'd failed. Again.

Darla entered the pitch to see it already occupied. There was someone she recognised who had tried out for Keeper, and Lucy. Dear Lucy, who'd been named captain. She deserved it, but good Merlin. It would've been a happy ending if she'd been the Seeker.

Darla, in no mood to talk and bloody well seeing red, stomped over to the shed, ripped the door open, snatched a practise Snitch, and shut the door again.

She turned to look at the other two. "Don't mind me," she said, then closed her eyes and took a very deep breath. "Congratulations on making Captain, Lucy. Lord knows you deserved it." She tried a smile, but it turned bitter, let go of the Snitch, and hopped onto her broom. Merlin.

    Lucy was on Cloud Nine. After seeing the Quidditch team roster, she couldn't help but do nothing but grin. She had made the team, and moreover, she'd been selected as Captain this year! The sheer joy ... more

        Calix looked at the new girl with undisguised disgust on his face. The obvious sympathy in her voice, the apology in her expression... did she think he was weak? That he'd need coddling? Oh, how he... more

          That was it. She nodded to Darla when she thanked her on being Captain, before watching her friend take to the skies. She was obviously upset and angry, so Lucy decided that it was best not to bother ... more
          • Good luck Lucy. Darla Applerose, Thu Oct 7 16:44
            Darla was flying, and she watched the spectacle going on below. Lucy looked quite angry, and the other bloke was laughing. Darla rolled her eyes. Another Nealson.. Oh goodness, what a team they had.... more

              In some ways, Calix preferred muggle methods. There was something much more liberating in engaging in hand to hand combat. The pounding of flesh upon flesh, nails scraping skin, fists grazing jaws,... more

                The anger that had built up inside her, had now spilled over into her speech. Of course, Calix thought that she was a poor choice in Captain and Beater - there was no point squabbling over it.... more

                  Darla was impressed when Lucy just walked away. She would have backed her up if needed if the wizard had wanted to fight. She knew if anyone had challenged her , she would've hexed them immediately.... more
