AURELIA BEZUIDENHOUT tried to succeed where AMI PROCOPPIO had failed, however CHARLES MOORE was able to barely move out of the way, allowing room for REID KOVACS to swoop in on his broom and give the bludger a THWACK that sent it flying into ERI WINDSTONE’s midsection, knocking the air of of her.
The quaffle thrown by PHAEDRA does not make it to ANDY, who is not close enough to attempt to catch the quaffle. COLETTE tries to intercept the quaffle, but bounces it off of her fingertips instead, accidentally sending it directly into the waiting arms of BENJAMIN ADDINGTON who now has possession over the quaffle. WINIFREY GOLDING gets a bit bored and scans for the snitch, but finds nothing. FROST CIRA flies around aimlessly.
Eri Windstone: -60 damage. Has the breath knocked out of her. (health 340)
Ami Procoppio: -60 damage. Is now close to the ground (140)
Benjamin Addington: Possession of quaffle
These people were kind of pathetic. Okay, so they were really pathetic. Flying around and trying to accomplish something he couldn’t even fathom. That one girl had hit a bludger, failed at doing anything and ended up with a bludger directly hitting her chest. He was no expert, but that had to hurt. His eyes darted over to the gryff boy. He was supposed to commentate, wasn’t he? Or was he waiting for Kaegen to whisper to him. Well, if that was the case, he should probably start…
“A STRONG START BY TEAM 1. ERI WINDSTONE HEADS OUT TO MID FIELD TO AIMLESSLY DRIFT! Wait is she looking for… oh. Right. Seeker. WHILE LOOKING FOR TH-”
He was cut off by action, ami hitting the bludger.
“AMI FROM TEAM 1 LOOKING GOOD AS SHE HITS…. Ooooohh BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME, THAT WAS KIND OF WEAK. YEAH, SEE? PHAEDRA FROM TEAM 2 IS GOING TO DODGE THAT NO PROBLEM.”
The announcer’s prediction came true. He was mostly making it up as he went along, with occasional nudgings from Kaegen.
“PARCEL MOVING FAST! Woah, what kind of a broom- isn’t that dangerous? AND HE HITS! HE HITS IT BACK AT AMI! MAYBE NOT THE STRONGEST HIT BUT IT’S...”
He stopped his tirade as the solid SMACK of a bludger hitting the skin on the girls chest rang out, louder than he had been expecting. His expression of morbid horror only intensified as Ami began to spiral down, heading for a rough landing on the rocks. He wasn’t even sure if she could survive that.
“Oh no… AMI! AMI BRAKE! GO UP! DO SOMETHING!”
He wasn’t sure if the girl had heard him or not, but the broom pulled off last second. He was about to continue talking about the girl, but Kaegen had smacked him on the back of the head, pointing the young gryffindor to the other happenings he had been missing out on.
“Wait, where’s the bludge- AURELIA OF TEAM 1 HIT THE BLUDGER AT CHARLES OF TEAM 2! Oh, lord don’t hit. That last time I could feel it...”
His fears turned out to not be grounded, as charles moved up, shifting places with reid, who gave the bludger a solid whack with his bat.
“HE BLOCKED IT! HE BLOCKED IT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN! IT’S HEADING TOWARDS UPPER MID FIELD! Wait, there’s someone there! Oh, right how could I…? IT’S GOING TO HIT ERI!”
His chaotic story telling proved accurate, the ball hitting Eri in the stomach. Hard.
“Ow, what the heck this game is brutal. Wait where’s the quaffle? Wait how did… what? BENJAMIN OF TEAM 1 GOT THE QUAFFLE! TEAM ONE MAY HAVE BEATERS THAT DON’T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A BAT AND A WHISK, BUT THEY HAVE SOME GOOD CHASERS! MAYBE STICK WITH EGG BEATING, YOU TWO!”
