Yeah, me neither...[SUM Chaser!]
Fri May 13, 2011 20:36

Patrick was a little peeved that his pass didn't get through, but Hector made up for it quickly. Pat zoomed over, trailing him, and then caught the pass that his teammates threw. He pulled to the right quickly, and dodged a stray bludger. Improvise, improvise, improvise! was what Pat's old high school coach had drilled them in. If one could be drilled in improvising. So instead of passing like he should and allowing another Chaser to get it to the hoops, Pat glanced at one of his teammates and raised his hand, palm facing them. That was his signal for one of their moves. They'd be making a double shot at this.

They had practiced this move of a "faux pass to kick" a bunch of times during their numerous practices. His teammate would fly towards the hoops and throw it, but instead throwing it at the hoops like the others expected, Gabriel or Hector would throw it towards Pat's broom, and he would give it a hard kick at the hoops. Perfect plan. Patrick loved to combine soccer and Quidditch.

After making sure his fellow Chaser got the message, Patrick zoomed faster towards the goals, chest almost touching the broomstick. He probably looked like a Quaffle-hog, but whatever. He was going to make this goal. He'd save his other move for later. He nodded at his teammate and flew towards them. He shoved the ball into their arms and flew past. He positioned himself near the hoops, near the opposing Keeper. His teammate had to understand. Otherwise, those practices had been for nothing.

Pat ran a hand through his black hair, the adrenaline beginning to pump through his body slowly in anticipation and in the thrill of flying. His mouth was open slightly, exposing white teeth, as he watched his teammate. They had to make this one. He grinned.

              She huffed in annoyance when the Edwards man intercepted Jian's hit. Turning to follow him, she returned his wink with an eye-roll, smiling despite herself. Yes, Quidditch was serious, but she... more
