Hyana Kamiya [SUM Keeper]
Finally, getting a moment to do something!

76.3.120.238

Quidditch was probably the only thing that Hyana felt good about when it came to Sapienti. Sure, she was in a Healing program, and she was getting good grades, and she was becoming a little stronger as a person. Even so…Hyana ignored the invitation to a top notch Healing program as she got ready for that day’s game. She couldn’t be distracted now.

So many times, probably because of Hector, Hyana felt useless at practice. It was getting better since Elly was captain, but she still had moments when she felt like the team didn’t need her. The chasers could defend the hoops all on their own. Hector certainly didn’t believe she could do it. Gabriel and Patrick were nicer, though, and Hyana appreciated their presence on the team. They were a good team, and they could win today.

Hyana couldn’t stop the small bit of nervousness from filling her stomach.

The Japanese girl forced down a breakfast and sped to the Pitch. In her mind, she was late, but she was probably earlier than Elly. Hyana hated being late to anything, especially not big events like this. They were facing a really good team; how could she not take this seriously?

A speech, handshake, and blow of the whistle later, Hyana was up in the air and waiting to protect their goals from attempts at scoring. She wanted to watch everything going on, cheer for her team, but her focus was on that red ball being passed around. And boy, was it being passed around! Her first opportunity arose to save the Quaffle and prove her worth to the team, but Hector (typical) stole that chance from her.

Fine. Do that. But I can take care of myself, Hector!

Her second chance to seriously play arose, but then Patrick took that from her, too! He smiled back at her and Hyana managed a small one back, even though her insides were bubbling with a mix of frustration, hurt, and anger. Did no one think she could do this? She’d been playing Keeper for years! There was a reason she made it on the team.

She watched her team’s chasers now, only because they had the Quaffle in their possession. Hyana could hardly believe how good the other Keeper was. They blocked the shots, like, how many times? She tightened her grip on her broom and grinned when they finally scored. Of course, logic stated that once someone scored, it would be coming to the other side of the Pitch. Her side.

Thank you, logic. She steeled herself and watched the Quaffle carefully. This time, they were going to let her save the Quaffle. They had no choice; Hyana didn’t know if she could stand it otherwise.

Hyana refused to budge from the center hoop. The chaser with the Quaffle was trying to make eye contact with her own brown eyes, but Hyana didn’t pay attention. Once, that would have intimidated her to no end, but she was stronger. Braver. She could do this.

Third time’s the charm! The Quaffle was heading towards the center hoop (by not paying attention to the player, she managed to ignore the feint to the right), but the spin it gained was suggesting otherwise. Hyana sped to the left hoop and caught the Quaffle. It was going fast enough to hit her stomach and make her release a bit of air in quiet surprise, but she grinned all the same. She spotted one of her team’s chasers and threw the Quaffle to them, tossing it up and using the tail of her broom for decent momentum. The faster it was going, the harder it would be to intercept, right? See that you guys? I can do this, too.

          Patrick had narrowly dodged the Boardhound Chaser's kick, but a little nick in the head wasn't too bad. He could deal with that. After making his goal and not allowing the cheering to go to his head, ... more

            Angela knew she was being entirely unhelpful right now. Her optimism that her arm would somehow fix itself in time to score a goal was rapidly fading, though she was keeping a good face on. She... more

                    Emilie was growing a little bored as she watched the match. Sure she wasn't the biggest fan of the Quaffle coming her way, but it could at least come near and then be stolen again. Like that hadn't... more

                      Jian always evaluated his team's performance constantly throughout their games. Even when he was a kid, even when he hadn't been the Captain, he had still always done it. It was habit to watch them... more
