You're all just in denial.

The instant before his broom made contact with the Quaffle, Jian saw a flash of robes from the corner of his eye, but it was too late for him to slow down enough to keep from hitting the ball towards the hoops. ‘Okay, so they’re fast enough to keep up.’ For now. He guessed that the opposing Chaser would intercept his hit and didn’t bother to stick around to watch, instead completing his turn and speeding off down the other end of the pitch. People were predictable. The instant the ball was in their possession, they’d take it down to the Boardhound hoops, he was certain of it.

His guess proved correct and he urged his broom up higher, watching from above as the three Sapienti chasers tossed the ball back and forth. He sunk down a bit closer to them as they drew nearer to the hoops, closely watching the way Errant was handling the Quaffle. A move of the arms, a twist of the shoulders - ‘There!’ He pushed the nose of his broom almost straight down just as Errant turned, guiding with only his knees as he dived between the two Chasers to grab the Quaffle. Continuing with his dive, he pulled out of it about six feet off the ground, throwing his weight sideways and rolling over and over until he became what looked like a corkscrew blur of blue robes and black hair. It was a move designed to confuse anyone watching; when he inevitably threw the Quaffle, they would have no idea where he was aiming for. That is, no one would know, except for his own Chasers. He spun his broom often enough during practises that something would be seriously wrong if they couldn’t figure it out.

Eyes trained on the hoops stretching up on the other end of the pitch, his vision narrowed until that was all he could see, three hoops, spinning around and around to his eyes as his broom rolled. One of his own Chasers briefly cut across his line of sight, and praying that they had been paying attention, he raised both hands and shoved the Quaffle out to the side, his turning momentum swiftly carrying it upwards directly in front of where his Chaser should be.
