Angela Oakes {Chaser}
Doing not so well, myself
Wed May 18, 2011 21:33

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 didn't want the other team to figure out that her ability to Chase was maybe just a bit more seriously damaged by that Bludger than she had let on. Besides, her back hurt. She was ignoring it while she flew, but she would seriously need a massage or something after this game was over with.

She had hung back by the side of the Sapienti hoops while the Chasers followed each other in a mob across the pitch. This hanging-back seemed to pay off now, as she had the opprotunity to circle over and catch the Quaffle in her left hand as the black-haired Chaser threw it towards one of his team mates. Well, she didn't really catch it in her hand, it was more like letting it slam into her ribs and then holding it there with her left arm. But hey, an intercept was an intercept, right?

Forcing herself to fly a bit faster and wincing at the strain in her back as she leaned forward over her broom, she came up a bit closer to one of her own Chasers and threw the ball towards them with her left hand. It was a clumsy throw and she knew it. She was pathetically weak in her left hand; she had strong doubts that her fellow Chaser would even be able to receive the pass before it either fell too low to be caught or was stolen away again.

Well, I got it away from the Fireballs for a bit, she reassured herself glumly. Even if she was never able to get the Quaffle into the hands of the more capable Chasers of her team, she figured that she could at least make herself a major obstacle to their opposition as they tried to pass the ball back and forth.

    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
