Assistant Captain Gabriel (a.k.a. "Sir")
Hot Potato, Hot Potato, Hot Potato - Hot!
Thu May 5, 2011 00:24

Everyday that passed and got closer to the game, Gabriel grew just a little more and more in excitement. Jian Wong was an excellent chaser, and this was a chance for him to prove his own talent against him. He had been training hard, obsessively, finding with surprise how much time he had at his disposal now that he was going out on dates with only one girl. Also how much more money he had. Striding onto the pitch, Gabriel had his game face on; a wide, beaming, excitable one. He saw the rest of his team filing onto the pitch and hurried towards them, pushing his red head band up from his neck and onto his temple to keep the dark curls above his eyes, his broom floating behind him, and adjusted the blue shorts and thin white t-shirt that he had put on backwards in his haste to leave.

"Buenos días!" He greeted Liana, walking with her as they gathered around Elly. His happiness was so great, his utter contentment had increased after midterm, and he was becoming one of those sickening people that demanded the rest of the world be happy (and believed that it was) only because they themselves were happy. He was aware of this, and yet couldn't stop it. He wanted a world of rainbows, something to signify how great life was going for him: a new access to wealth; his family was in contact with one another; Quidditch; Arlette; good friends with Elly, Liana, and Isabella; a job lined up after graduation; and he was still as good looking as ever.

He listened to Elly talk before laughing at what their apparent practice was going to be and swinging onto his Elm wood broom, kicking off and rising into the air. Elly passed to him and he caught it easily, turning around to settle himself in the air. "España!" He grinned as he shouted the first country that came to mind. The Quaffle had barely trembled in his grasp when he tossed it in a long arch towards another teammate, continuing on the game.

                  Having the whole team back together was really exhilerating, particularly with their game not far off on the horizon. However, reuniting everyone back after the midterm break seemed to feel slightly... more
