….Seems like the sort of thing a Slytherin would do, though. ….Yeah, I’ll bet it is. But at least Benjy’s being nice and supportive and stuff, right?
……I…yeah I guess. Yeah he is. Benjy’s great. He’s been helpful but not too helpful, you know?
…..I dunno - seems like just the sort of thing that lot would pull, and their Captain’s the one in charge of ‘em so… Is it? Hmm…well he was Captain for a whole year, I’m sure it’s just habit. They’ll get used to you, I know it.
Well I mean just cause he’s their captain doesn’t mean he can control them off the pitch. It just doesn’t seem like the sort of thing uh…. a captain would do. Yeah, exactly. I’m sure you’re right. It’s just a bit odd having both the old captain and the new on the team is all.
Thanks, Grets. You’re the best. ….Maybe not. But doesn’t make it any less awful that they did it. Of course, Grets! …Merlin, I can imagine. Yeah? Good, I’m glad! I bet your team loves you.
Aww no you are. …..Yeah but it was Madam Hooch’s decision not theirs. I’m sure their captain didn’t have anything to do with it. Thanks, Daisy. I dunno… I hope so. It’s kinda weird having Benjy still on the team. Sometimes everyone still waits for him to say something. But they’ll get used to it….eventually.
Ha! Well yes, that too. I - really? You really think so? Wow - thanks, Grets. ‘Course I won’t tell. …That’s not fair, Grets. Sure you lost but those stupid snakes made you play a whole lot earlier than you were expecting to. And you only lost by - what was it, 10 points or something? Just ‘cause Doe got the snitch first. Really neither of our teams played very well, but it was the first match of the season and like I said your team wasn’t even supposed to be playing in it. Just ‘cause you lost doesn’t mean you’re not a great Captain. ‘Sides, I’m sure the next game will go a lot better.
Yeah I really do. You’re good, you just need more confidence when you’re on the pitch is all. I’m sure it’ll all work out. I….well I’m sure it wasn’t planned. Things happen…. Thanks, Daisy. Hopefully you’re right. Being captain is a whole lot more work then I expected. But it’s kinda fun too.
Ha! Yeah, I dunno what I was thinking — should have just shown up for your tryouts. You’d put a Gryffindor on your team, yeah? …Thanks, Grets. And you make a pretty great Captain, far as I can tell.
Ha! I was talking with the sorting hat but yes of course I’d have put you on my team. You’re better then Cade. Just keep that between us, yeah? …Really? But I lost my first game…..plus my first game was a disaster. I don’t know if I’m cut out for this….. This year was supposed to go a lot differently.
….Well that’s true. Ha! Thanks, Grets, you’re the best. I wish you could be my Captain.
That would be awesome! But nope you had to go for Gryffindor instead of Ravenclaw. Oh well. You look pretty good up their with your team, Daisy. Don’t let anyone, not even Potter, tell you different.
Ha! Well yes but those third years were really tall for their age so it’s not so bad. …Thanks, Grets. But it’s alright, really. I know I’m no replacement for Fabian but I’m doing the best I can and I’m still better than anyone else who tried out, so it’s alright.
…..Right. Well really Daisy, Fabian had been in that position for what six years? No one can compare to someone with that much experience. Don’t let them make you think you have to live up to him. Exactly! You are better then all the rest of ‘em and you’ll get even better.
Ha! You’re not a midget, Grets. ‘Sides, least it comes in handy, yeah? Oh….well I mean…he doesn’t really shout at me he just….shouts at me a lot. I mean the pitch is pretty big I don’t think I’d hear him if he wasn’t shouting all the time….
No but I am short. I mean I got mugged by third years on the train Daisy…..I’m short. Ha! Yeah it does. Oh…okay. Well still you’re doing really good. He should try encouraging you more. You’ll get it. No one’s that great their first year. Not even James Potter.
Merlin, yeah, you’re bloody fast. Yeah, it will. And then maybe James won’t shout at me so much if he sees us practicing together.
Thanks Daisy. It’s just cause I’m such a midget, as my brothers say. Oh Daisy….he shouldn’t shout at you at all. I hate when captains do that…. It doesn’t help anything.
