Starting off on a bang (Quaffle@Sapienti goals)

70.75.187.156

Quidditch was Jian’s life and honour and pride, all wound up into one small red ball. Though he enjoyed it as a game, that wasn’t what he played it for. He played it to win. Personally, he had succeeded in that last year, yet as a whole he had failed, as his team had narrowly missed the prestige of winning first. But this was now his third season as Captain, this was the season he had drilled both himself and his team harder than ever, and this season, things would be different. He was certain of it.

Ever aware of his surroundings, the Chinese man hardly flinched as Angela suddenly jumped up beside him.“Don’t get too excited,” he said, ignoring her looking up at him in favour of studying their opponents. He successfully managed to keep the irritated tone out of his voice at her own overly cheerful one. “Focus is key. Not fun.” DiCaprio, one of the Sapienti chasers, looked his way, and Jian met his eyes briefly, a look that could best be described as bored on his face. Of course, it was just a facade. He could already feel the adrenaline mounting inside him, the quiet desperation of wanting to get up in the air and feel that red ball between his hands again.

Jian mounted his broom, toes tense against the ground as he waited for the signal to kick off. This would be his last year at Williamsburg. ‘Gotta go out with a bang.’ Watching the ref like a hawk, he took off from the ground the instant the whistle blew, ignoring DiCaprio's possession of the Quaffle and instead heading straight for the Sapienti hoops. Despite her newbie status, he had moderately high confidence in Angela's ability to intercept passes and steal the ball. She would get a hold of the Quaffle soon, and she’d bring it right to the front. Angela was a silly girl sometimes - or most of the time, really - but after listening to her range of ideas and suggestions, he had to admit that she had a good mind for strategy. Probably the only reason he had agreed to go along with this play in the first place.

Watching her turning below him, he kept pace with her as they closed in on the hoops. He saw her begin to reach up and slammed to a halt, shoulder-length black hair whipping around his face as he twisted his broom around in a tight U-turn. Thwack! The reinforced tail of his broom met the Quaffle mid-air and sent it speeding straight at the far left hoop, the exact opposite hoop that Angela had feigned her aim towards. It was time to get this game started, and what better way to do that than attempt a goal in the first minute of the ref's whistle? Speed was, after all, one of Jian's strengths. 'Let's see just how fast these kids can move.'
