Rhiya waited semi-patiently as Raja pulled off a successful Wingardium Leviosa. “Nice job.” They only had to do this, what, another 30-40 times? She looked ahead eyebrows in dismay at how far they still had to go. Why did the Pitch have to be so large? She hopped on after Raja his eyebrows are gone, stopping at the next obstacle.

“Yeah, I’ll handle this one.”

She wiped away the sweat on her forehead with the back of her palm. It had been relatively cool when they got to the Pitch, but the sun was really baking the ground now. He only has like, half an eyebrow. Considering that the entire Pitch set up was underground, the third-year couldn’t understand why the weather had to be terrible. If she were in charge, she’d make sure every day was beautiful, with clear skies, a warm sun, and cool breeze. She’d heard that Professor Boot was responsible for some of the weird weather on the Pitch – and she was pretty sure he wasn’t officially in charge of the spells – so surely the administration could do something about him. He was so old, he was probably due for retirement soon anyway.

Rhiya handed the disc over to Raja, pretending to analyze the obstacle so she could avoid looking at his face. All she had to do was pull a box over the red patch so she and Raja could hop across.

It wouldn’t be smart to try it immediately – she needed to warm up first. “Let’s go.” Rhiya leapt over to the next patch of green and used Wingardium Leviosa again to tackle the next obstacle. When is he going to notice his eyebrows. Without pause, she went on ahead, only stopping at the next red patch to catch her breath. At least they were making good progress finally.

“All right. Do you want to give this next one a shot, or should I keep going?”

    “Oh no, you fell?” Raja was far less concerned about the red-turned disc and more about the fact that she’d fallen over. “No worries about having to double back. You okay?” Rhiya didn’t seem hurt,... more
