Quidditch Practise!
Tue May 3, 2011 11:42

"Alright, you bunch of slackers, get your unworthy arses over here!" Elly laughed as she called the rest of the team over, prepared to duck anything that was thrown her way in response. She'd waited almost a whole week after classes resumed to give everyone the opportunity to get back into the swing of things before calling their first Quidditch practise after midterm. "Okay, so most of us had a nice break, now we really need to get back into training. Our first game is in just a few weeks, and we need to be on top."

The usual practise balls lay in their cases to one side, but Elly had already retrieved the red leather Quaffle and was now holding it out in front of her. "Anyone ever played hot potato?" she asked rhetorically as she raised her wand and cast a charm on the Quaffle. "We're going to start with a warm up," she said to her team. "If you hold the Quaffle for more than five seconds it will start to vibrate," she said, and as if on cue the red ball began to shake in her hands, "which makes it tricky to hold on to." She passed the ball along to the nearest player, and as she ceased contact it went still again. "We're going to work on concentration. So everyone up in the air, and fly in something resembling a circle. When you catch the ball you have to shout out the name of a country. The longer you take, the more the Quaffle will try to get away. Everyone got it?" Signalling for the Quaffle to be passed back to her, Elly caught the ball and then mounted her broomstick. "Off we go!"

Pushing off from the ground, Elly joined the rest of her teammates in taking to the air. The Quaffle under her arm began to shake, so the redhead wasted no time in passing it to her nearest teammate.
