When Accidents Happen
Chapter 1- Of Accidents & Surprises
"Alright there, Potter?" Jenny Slotski, my Quidditch captain, asked me Sunday morning in the Gryffindor changing rooms.
I sighed. People had been asking me that since I woke up. First Ron, then Hermione, and then the whole Gryffindor table.
"Yes, I'm fine."
"Are you sure your fit to play? This is an important match Harry, you know that."
Today's match is to be Slytherin versus Gryffindor. Of course it's an important match. Not that I'm worried. I could catch the snitch before Malfoy blindfolded.
I fought to keep the frustration from my voice as I replied.
"Jenny, I said I'm fine. Would I be here if I wasn't?"
She eyed me doubtfully.
"I just want to make sure you're up to it."
"Sod off, Slotski. If he says he's fine, he's fine." Came Ron's voice from behind me. I turned around and gave him a thankful smile. I didn't need Jennifer on my back at the moment. Don't get me wrong, she's a good captain, but she worries too much for her own good.
"Okay Weasley. But don't you dare blame me if Potter passes out on the field." She snapped stalking off to get her broomstick."
Ron rolled his eyes "She's such a Drama Queen."
I laughed, " She's not that bad, Ron. She was just worried, that's all."
"No, really Harry she is that-
"Oh, Ronald!" called a singsong voice.
Ron let out a groan and turned to face a girl with long blonde hair and blue eyes. She was wearing a huge top hat reading Go Ronald. I watched Ron's face go from annoyed to horrified as he caught sight of the hat.
"Luna! What are you doing? How did you get in here? And how many times do I have to remind you not to call me Ronald?"
" But Ronald," Luna said pouting "I just wanted to wish you good luck"
Ron gave an exasperated sigh. "At least take off the hat okay?"
Luna looked at Ron her normally dreamy expression turning confused. "Why?"
"Why? Why? Luna, you just… argh Harry, tell her."
I gave Ron a look. He's not very good with girls, if you know what I mean. A girl talks to him these days and his mind just shut down. I suppose what I'm trying to say is that he just doesn't know how to handle them, unlike me. Hah, yah right.
"Luna, what Ron means is that… um… well that hat is to … big? Yah, that's right. That hat is much too big. The people behind you in the stands won't be able to see the game. Why don't you just leave it here as Ron's … um… good luck gift?"
Luna, who seemed satisfied with my totally brilliant plan, took the hat off and handed it to Ron.
" Good luck, Ronald," she said kissing his cheek softly "I know you'll do great"
She turned around and made her way through the Quidditch players towards the change room doors.
I raised an eyebrow at Ron who just blushed.
Malfoy just dived. I don't know whether to follow him or not. It's only been ten minutes into the game. He couldn't have found the snitch that fast could he?
I watched though as Malfoy flew back up to my height. I guess he didn't see it after all.
"Hey Potter!" he shouted to me with his sneer firmly in place. "Your winning streak ends here!"
Then he flew toward me full speed. I turned around and caught a glimpse of something gold. I flew in the direction I saw it go, Malfoy on my tail.
Then all of the sudden I heard a cry of pain from behind me and turned in time to see Malfoy slip of his broom. After a seconds hesitation I turned my broom in a dive to try and catch him. Unfortunately I wasn't fast enough, so me being the goody-goody that I am jumped off my own broom.
Okay now I was going fast enough. I caught up to Malfoy just before we hit the ground, me clutching him close to me as he screamed for his life. I maneuvered our bodies so I would land on the ground first with him on top of me. His stormy gray eyes were the last things I saw before my head hit the ground hard and I blacked out.
Heh heh. First chap.What did guys think? Review. I'd love your opinion.
