Let's get this started.

Angela was quite excited for this match. She had heard good things about the Fireballs, particularly the men of the team, and being stuck in an arranged marriage with a hopelessly boring Ministry worker nearly ten years her senior who did not know the meaning of fun, she was, as usual, looking forward to see if the rumours did these men any justice. Or, alternatively, if the men did the rumours any justice. And, hey, after half a year under Jian's leadership, the freshman was looking forward to taking her drastically improved skills onto the pitch. After placing a quick charm on her hair so that her multitude of thin blonde braids would remain in place, she took her broom in hand and followed her team-mates, quickening her pace to walk alongside Jian. ďArenít you excited?Ē she beamed up at him, hazel eyes shining brightly from behind her glasses. ďBecause Iím excited. Itís going to be fun! Donít you think itíll be fun?Ē

As they came up onto the pitch, she was pleased to note that the rumours most definitely held true. An Edwards, a Spanish guy, and two other blokes she hadn't heard much about but weren't exactly hard on the eyes. The girls she paid little attention to; the Seeker wasnít any of her concern (and how could someone trained as a Seeker effectively captain a team of non-Seekers, anyways?), she didn't believe that a female Beater, and a tiny one at that, could even provide a minor threat to them (though as a five-foot-two female Chaser, maybe she should be a bit less opinionated on that), and the Keeper really couldnít be judged at this point (she knew sheíd have to keep her eye on her throughout their game to get an idea of where her skills were at). But all in all a good team, Angie decided happily. Yes, this game would be fun.

Though she kicked off as quickly as she could, the black-haired man got to the Quaffle first. She followed him an at angle slightly behind in, darting across to intercept his pass and immediately whirling around to take the ball to the other end of the pitch. She hoped Jian would keep to the plan and stay overhead.

Angie peeled off to the right and turned directly towards the right goal hoop, drawing back the Quaffle while she approached it as though to attempt a score. However, as her arm came forward, she suddenly changed direction and chucked the Quaffle up towards Jian instead. The blonde then continued her circle, eyes briefly skimming over that Spanish guy again before her attention returned to her Asian friend.
