    *Takes the Quaffle with glee!*

    Alice was falling to the ground at record breaking speed. Maud dived head-first after her as Katherine played alone up ahead, crying out to the referee, "That has to be a foul!"

    "It takes two to crash."

    "She's unconscious!"

    The fight continued while Maud managed to scoop Alice in her arms. There was blood seeping from Alice's forehead at a rapid rate. Silent chanting to herself, Maud healed the wound but it did not wake Alice.

    Kathleen scored with the Quaffle. "That was for her."

    The other members sneered at her, but her face was still calm and collected as always, absolutely infuriating Katherine.

    “How can you be so calm?” Katherine’s face seemed to be on fire with anger. “Alice may be seriously hurt, and you are so cool, as though nothing has happened!”

    “Alice would want us to win. Hand her to the mediwizards, and let’s go. Do you think she would want us to lose just because she is unconscious?” Kathleen looked around the team. Every face became serious. The girls nodded.

    Two minutes later, Alice was being taken to the emergency tent, and six Harpies flew back into the sky, determined to make their captain proud.

    *giggles* Actually, I didn't meant Alice to get hurt at all...

    Anyway...

    And proud she should be. The Harpies flew better than ever before, scored more often than they had in all their previous matches, kept their own goal hoops as clean as possible although – even if Angelina had been at more than her best – they couldn’t prevent the Eagles from scoring as well.

    Most importantly, however, was that both Emma and Kathleen felt the absence of the third Chaser.

    “Keep those Bludgers off our tails!” Emma shouted when one of the vicious balls raced past her, coming quite close.

    Maud called back, “We’ll do our best!” and followed the Bludgers’ wake.

    Ladies, we should try to find a good ending soon.

    But till then: Badgers, GO!

    Someone could have told me Alice getting hurt wasn't part of the plan! Anyway, moving on...

    Katherine could feel the sweat trickling down her cheek as she continued to bat away bludgers. The Eagle's used that the Harpies were now missing a Chaser to their advantage, now aiming at Lucy instead of Alice.

    Tossing herself from one side of the pitch to the other, Lucy was finding it hard to remove herself from the Bludgers' bombardment, all the while cursing herself that she let the snitch out of her sight.

    The worst part of it all was, Christof as confident as ever, bobbing his way up and down the pitch without a care in the world.

    Lucy was on the point of cussing her fate in the worst terms known to wizardfolk, when she met Emma’s gaze. At first, the Harpies’ Seeker could not make out the message her teammate was sending her, but suddenly the meaning rang in her head. Emma was her best friend and they often understood each other without words – it was a team joke that they used Legilimency. She was told to turn around and look in the opposite direction from her opponent. Lucy obeyed and slowly turned around.

    Almost at once, she saw a glint of gold.

    Sorry, Kathleen.


    And better still: Christof had not yet seen it.

    Leaning forward as much as possible, trying to be pressed flat onto her broom, Lucy urged it to accelerate. With rapid speed she dashed into the Snitch’s direction. But she felt like she moved in slow motion only. The glittering gold came nearer still though.

    Directly behind you, Lucy suddenly heard Emma’s voice in her head.

    “Thanks!” she shouted back. But Lucy didn’t turn around. She had only eyes for the Snitch.

    Taking a hand off the handle, she made to grab the Snitch when another Bludger came hurtling towards her.

    luinrina: No problem, we're doing fabulously anyway!

    Okay, let's do this!

    Managing to keep one eye on the snitch, Lucy's body swivelled to avoid the Bludger. However, all the Harpies screamed as she lost balance and fell off the broom, only surviving by her one hand that was clutching onto the broom.

    "Oh no you don't!" Lucy threw herself up, shakily steadying herself back onto her broom, hearing the odd sigh of relief.

    With the sudden rush, she pushed herself further, moving at such a speed that the wind was straining her eyes. But she did not care; as long as she could still see that speck of gold, she was happy.

    Everyone’s eyes followed the lithe form of the Harpies’ Seeker, shooting like a javelin high up in the air. Christof, who finally noticed something was afoot, was quickly gathering speed; he was, however, quite a bit behind his opponent. No one paid any attention to the hustle on the field.

    Alice was revived rather quickly and, despite the protests of the mediwizards, wrestled her way back onto the field. She knew full well that she could not fly yet; her head was spinning as it was. At least, she could be there, with her girls, her sisters, her team.

    Wonderful last sentence, Alice. Love it!

    Watching the youngest of her team members fly the fastest humanly possible, Alice felt overly joyous to know each and every one of the girls.

    “Come on, Lucy, you can do this. I know you can,” she spoke to herself. She had her fingers crossed so hard they started to hurt already.

    Lucy in the meantime took her hand off the handle, again, and made to grab the Snitch. And this time she caught the tiny glittering ball. The small wings fluttered within her tightly closed palm as she held her arm high for everyone to see the Harpies’ victory.
    And... the match is won! 100 words on the spot again.

    Now let's wrap it up. *passes Quaffle again*

    ****

    The hall was filled with an immaculate buzz. There were mostly women but a few men had decided that being a good sportsman involved attending.

    Lucy spent most of her time sitting down, the headache now sinking in from the rapid speed she had been travelling. This was very unlike some of her teammates, especially Katherine, had had just been chased back into the hall by the Eagles after some very crude boasting.

    "Told you we'd be fine," said Kathleen, taking the tankard of butterbeer and another swig.

    Katherine shook her head, trying to conceal the smile on her lips.
