If you thought that was offensive, don't watch this.

"You have no idea."

Chris cringed on his broom. There was a brief flash of pain that seemed to travel from the middle of his back to his chest, as if an arrow had struck through him unnoticed, and continued to slide in and out. That was how he would tell it anyway. The truth was more akin to a very painful jelly fish sting piercing his lower back but that wasn't nearly as dramatic. Chris winced in pain as he turned around from his target and followed the loud voice that had spoken. He saw a familiar looking blond dropping lower and farther away. "Edwards." He hissed. The boy was going to die. Chris shook off the effects of the hex and sped after the Fireball chaser. Half of him was imagining his body falling off his broom and landing in a bloody puddle staining the snow, while the other was thinking, 'Let's get him on the team.' What a worthy burst of cheating, but the boy had to learn not to mess with his betters.


As always, Chris was attune to the sound of the bludgers. He tore his eyes off of Edwards flanking Errant and desperate Javier whom he still couldn't trust to protect himself nor his goals. He saw just in time - "Kerrie!" He made a sharp 180 and sped through the air in a blinding moment of both worry and rage. He knew, even as he did it, that this was going to be a mistake that would cost the team. "Kerrie!"

He sped up to her, blocking her way to Hippogriff goals, and stared wide eyed at the blood soaking her robes. He swore loudly and looked at her from behind his glasses, his dark eyes, almost black, hard. "Tergeo" The blood dried up, and try as he might he couldn't remember the spell to remove her pain. Not for a gash like this. Not when every fiber in his being was consumed by a fire no amount of winter snow could quench. "Go get the quaffle!" He said, and dropped suddenly in height to clear her way.

He knew he should go after the chasers, at least Edwards or Errant who was performing well (and irritatingly so - why weren't his chasers being effective?) Chris instead opted for the nearest chaser. With no bludger in sight, Chris snuck up to Chapman from behind. Only the merest hint of discipline made him disregard her head. 'Besides, she's gonna hurt the way Kerrie did.'

He flew directly beside her and turned to look at her. "You hit like a girl. Here's how a man does it!" He brought his beater's bat with a whack into her own side, and grinned, spinning his broom in a downward spiral to avoid any backlash she might've given. The bat had felt so good into her side, sinking into flesh and jamming against bone.

'Now back to Kerrie.' He began to scout the skies for his foolish-unable-to-appreciate-her-place love of his life.

  • ..did you really have to get that offensive?Kerrie Lang, Fri Nov 26 17:57
    Despite Edwards' almost pathetically awesome pass to her, he was now playing much better and was steadily gaining on their goalhoops. But Kerrie wasn't one easily outraced. She sped after him,... more

        And sure enough, there Chris was as always, in front of her the moment her thoughts turned to him. Staring into his eyes behind those dark glasses, she smiled at him in gratitude, her own grey eyes... more
