    "Hi, Bertram!" Rose waved happily. Unfortunately, when she did that, she lost her balance on the broom and promptly fell off. Hugo looked like he was about to laugh until he caught his mother's stern eye.

    "Ron, I told you this wasn't a good idea!" Hermione huffed, running over to help up Rose.

    "She's fine, Hermione. Hello, Luna! Hi, Bertram! I've got a broom for you here, Bertram, if you'd like to try it out," Ron said invitingly.

    "I'd love to!" Bertram said, as Hugo's face lit up with excitement.

    "Could you teach us to play Quidditch, Dad?" he asked.
    100 words.

    You're doing great, team! Woot!!

    "Yes, Daddy, please?" urged Rose.

    "Yes, I'll teach you how to play Quidditch! But, first, why don't we show Bertram how to mount and start flying?"


    For the next twenty minutes, they showed Bertram how to mount, and get in the air. Everyone fell off a few times, but it was all in good fun. By the time it was possible for them to stay in the air for a half-decent length of time, Hermione had brought out one of the old Quaffles.

    "Hermione, the Quaffle please!" yelled Ron, from about fifteen feet in the air.
    I had to take that down from 109 and I wasn't even finished That was 98 words.

    Hermione tossed the Quaffle and Ron snatched it neatly from the air. Then he turned to face the children.

    “Right, we need to lay down the rules before we start,” he said. “It’s all against all, so you’re playing for yourself. You need to get the Quaffle, fly down the orchard and get it through that hoop.” He pointed at a rickety looking wooden ring at the far end of the orchard.

    “But no elbows!” Hermione interjected. “And no Wonky Faints either. I don’t want anyone getting hurt!” Her gaze swivelled to her son, who was smirking behind his hand.
    Dead on 100! *flexes fingers*

    "I'll count to three, throw the quaffle in the air, and then it's all for all!" Ron centered himself among them. "One ... Two ... THREE!"

    Bertram urged his broom forward as the Quaffle hit him in the face, Hugo shot straight into a tree, and Rose fell off the side of her broom to the ground below.

    "ROSE! Are you all right?" Hermione cried. "I knew this was a bad idea, I just knew it!"

    "She's all right, Hermione," Luna said reassuringly. "She only dropped five feet or so- that's not even far enough to break her Snidelly Bone!"
    WC: 98.

    Sorry it took me so long. I saw that Alex went last night, but didn't have time to write a decent entry, so I waited until tonight.

    Bertram helped Rose onto her broom. "Hold on tight and don't lean to the side. You can do it," he said kindly.

    Rose smiled tremulously as she hovered by his side. He got the Quaffle, tossing it to her. Surprised, she managed to hold onto it and the broom.

    "Go!" Bertram urged. Imitating her father, she flattened a bit towards her broom, making it go a mite faster towards the hoop. She started to wobble, then threw the ball at the hoop.

    Hugo swooped out of nowhere and caught it.

    "Hey!" yelled Rose loudly, "That's not fair! Daaad!"
    98 words! Go Ravenclaw! *high-five team all around* *throws Chocolate Frogs*

    *catches chocolate frog and eats. YUM!*

    Ron flew over to his daughter. "Yes it is, Rosie. It looks like Hugo wants to play Keeper. Is that right, son?"

    "Keeper? What's that?" the young boy asked.

    "The person who tries to stop the Quaffle from going in the hoops. Each team has one," replied Luna from the ground.

    "Yeah, I'll play Keeper and stop all the goals!" Hugo boasted to Rose.

    "But Dad!" Rose whined, looking at her father. "That makes it harder!"

    "Well, Rose, isn't it the point of all games for them to be hard? If they were too easy, would they be fun?"
    98 words. It's the last day, guys! Woot-Woot! let's go team!


    And Andi, I was posting when I got that message!

    Rose pouted and steadied herself on the Firebolt, still glaring at her brother.

    "You can do it, Bertram!" Luna called supportingly. "Remember what I said about Loser's Lurgy!"

    Bertram nodded and squared off; Ron threw the Quaffle high in the air. Bertram sped forward, overtaking Rose easily and snatching the ball from the air. He hurtled toward the hoop, gaining speed; Hugo's eyes widened as Bertram threw the Quaffle as hard as he could-

    "SCORE!" Ron shouted appreciatively. "Hugo, you're supposed to block the goal post!"

    Hugo blushed, and Rose laughed scathingly. Bertram grinned, retrieving the Quaffle.

    "They won't be so lucky next time!" Hugo blustered, going to guard the hoop once more.

    Bertram smiled at Rose. "Think we can take him?" he asked. She nodded confidently, saying, "Let's go!"

    Bertram gently tossed her the Quaffle. She snatched it neatly, flying towards Hugo. She sped up and Hugo's smirk vanished.

    "I forgot how to stop!" she wailed, and Hugo zoomed away from the goal.

    "Just kidding!" she laughed, dropping the Quaffle through the hoop.

    "Score! Ten points to Rose!" Ron chortled.

    "Hugo has definitely picked up some of your Keeper abilities, Ron," Luna remarked, beaming.
    Whew! 98 words! Go, team! Go, team! Go, go, go, team! WOOT!

    *Did someone say laffy taffy? Save me some!*

    "Of course he has," boasted Ron.

    Hermione laughed. "I think he has, Ron, yes! But watch them up there, they might fall!"

    "They're doing great, Hermione, calm down!" he assured his wife, before turning his back and flying over to fetch the Quaffle.

    Bertram and Rose faced each other whilst Hugo hovered uncertainly in front of the goal posts.

    Ron flew below Bertram and Rose and threw up the Quaffle. They both flew towards it; Hermione closed her eyes.

    Bertram got to the Quaffle first and turned, throwing Rose off. He sped towards the net, thinking he had lost her.
    Exactly 100. Woot-Woot! Quickly, guys, post so we can shoot, score and WIN this Quidditch Match!

    Hugo gritted his teeth and determinedly blocked the hoop as Bertram approached.

    "C'mon, Hugo! Show him what you're made of!" Ron yelled urgently.

    "You can do it, Bertram!" Luna called.

    "Be careful, boys!" Hermione shouted above both of them.

    Hugo held his breath, his eyes fixed on the Quaffle under Bertram's arm. Bertram flattened his broom, picking up speed; he reared back to throw the Quaffle-

    "Ha!" Rose flew up from beneath him and snatched the ball clean from his hand.

    "WATCH OUT!" Hugo yelled, but Bertram looked up a second too late- and everything went black.
    94 words. We can close this out! Bring it home, 'Claws!
