I settle myself in the stands to watch Aisling try out for the Ravenclaw team. I cannot spot my sister among the whirring of broomsticks scraping the sky. I have never tried out for the Griffindor Quidditch team before, should I do it? 

"Hey! Who's that?" someone yells from the field, pointing a finger at me. I shrink back and consider heading back to the castle and forgetting Quidditch.

"Maybe it's a spy! From Slytherin!" one of the boys exclaims, starting a stampede of kids running towards me. The way he used "it" to describe me was enough to get me scrambling away from the Ravenclaw team. I run to the other side of the field, wondering why Aisling did not speak up for me. Maybe she wasn't there. But that didn't make since, she loves Quidditch! I stopp running when I reach the Hufflepuff house's tryouts. They were all nice kids, and I doubt they would make fun of me. I notice a boy (could this be Jerrod, Cloudy?) sitting near me, when he sees me, he walks over until he is standing right behind me. When I whipped my head around, he sat down casually, eyening me. I opened my mouth to yell something, to whom, I didn't know. The boy clamps a hand on my shoulder at mouths:

"Act like nothing's wrong!" Now this was a real spy, probably Slytherin too. Everyone knew that Slytherin was evil, and suddenly, I was afraid as to what this boy would do.

"Just stay quiet would you?" I whisper angrly.

The other Slytherin kids would kill me if I let a Gryphindor girl get in the way of figuring out the team ideas.

"You're a spy?" she said in a tone of anger, but also fear.

I couldn't help but feel embarassed.  Why did everyone always expect the worst from me just because of my housemates? It makes it really hard to meet new friends.

"Look," my voice cracked, "I didn't WANT to spy on them, but Slytherins do anything to win, and I'm unfortunately one of them. My name is Jerod Arathor, third year keeper for Slytherin, pureblood. Who are you?" (directed towards Heidi)

I am quite satisfied with the way my tryout went. Our Captain didn't decide the teams right away like the others, but I'm fairly confident. <Brookieria's cherrie> bumps up to me. "Hey,  you want to talk?" "Sure," I say. "I just talked to the werewolf girl and she's real nice. You want to meet her?" "Sure," I repeat. Being in Ravenclaw, we all figured it out by the second day, which was the full moon. "Maybe the Shrieking Shack will come back into play?" I ask. "You know, how they used it when that Lupin dude was here?" "Maybe." "Hey, how are we going to get into the Gryffindor dormitories?" I say as we reach the Fat Lady. "And how do you know the enterance?" She smiles and pulls out her iPhone. "Siri, what is the current password to the Gryffindor common room?" "Godric's Sword," Siri replies in a low monotone. "Godric's Sword," I repeat to the portrait. "Correct," she murmurs sleepily.

We sneak through the deserted common room up to the girls dorms. Machine is sitting on her bed, looking out the window. "Hi!" I breath.

Heidi doesn't think she is brave enough to be in Griffindor. 


The spy looks less intimidating, in fact, he looks as scared as me. I realized that if I yelled, he would be caught. He leaned forward as the Hufflepuff captain said something about "strategies."

"I'll be quiet." I took a trembling breath; I was about to to take a daring step forward. "If... you help me to get on the Griffindor Quidditch team!" I was making a deal with a Slytherin. Thy spy hesitated, looking surprised, I held my breath. 


Remember guys, Dumbldor is not here, Snape is not here, and I doubt Professor McGonnagal is still here. We will have to make a new headmaster and new teachers.

I thought for a moment about how I could possibly get her on the Gryphindor quidditch team. Everyone in the Gryphindor house disliked me, but they would truly hate me if they realized Slytherin was spying on them.

"I'll get you on their team," I said as boldly as I could, "just take me to see the team captain. I will show him what you're made of."

Maybe I could challenge him into putting her on the team. Or perhaps Heidi has a hidden strength no one knows about...

I wasn't sure, but one thing I knew as I hurried off with her towards wherever their team captain was that I better get my story straight , fast...


( this is getting exciting :)

I forgot to say refer to "The spy" as Jerrod, and I forgot to say that I said my name.

Wait a sec. Isn't this role play taking shortly after Harry's adventures? So shouldn't Mcgonagall still be here?

I am the last person to try out for the seeker. I climb onto my broom and kick off the ground. I dodge a bluger and speed up above the goal posts. I  spot the snich by the goal post and dive, nearly hitting the ground. The snich escapes me as I spot my sister running towords the area where the Hufflepuffs are practicing, folllowed by a bunch of kids. I fly above the other players and scan for the snich. I see it by the benches and catch it in about ten minutes. All the players fly to the ground and the coach tells us that the results will be posted on the bulletin board this weekend. I grab my broom and run of in the direction that my sister ran in. I come upon the Hufflepuff Quidditch practice and my sister. She is sitting with a boy from Slytherin. Then I notice that they are whispering. This is not good. I sneak up behind them with my wand out but stop whan Heidi hisses, "If... you help me get on the Griffindor Quidditch team!" The Slythern looks surprised, about to say something but I hex him then grab my sister's arm and run towords the castle. We stop and I ask, "What were you doing with that Slytherin boy ?" "I wanted to try out for the Griffinidor team but I didn't want to ask the head of our house ( who is that?).  I am a little suprised but I don't show it and say, "I'll ask him/her for you, but are you sure?" Yes," Heidi says.

Jerrod nods silently and we both jump up. There is a bang behind me and a hex flies out of nowhere! It hits Jerrod in the back and he flies forward. I didn't have time to see if he was okay. The attacker grabs my arms and pulls me around. I think I hear a scream, possibly coming from my own mouth. Long black hair whips into my face and I realize that I am staring into the face of my sister, who looks very concerned.

"What were you doing with the Slytherin?" she hisses.

I spit something out about Quidditch and not asking the headmaster about trying out for the team. Suddenly, I feel really dumb. What was I thinking?

When we reach the castle Aisling lets go of me.

" I think it's okay," I assure her. "I think I can trust him. I can do this." Aisling looks surprised. I am so shy that she is always looking out for me. She is surprised. Her eyes answer "yes" and I run back to the Quidditch field.

"Ouch," I scowled. "Why don't we try to get to the team captain before someone turns me into a toad?" 

"Oh yes," Heidi nods, "let's try to find Captain Corin (random name choice)."

We hurried around the quidditch field, but found no members of the Gryphindor team.

"They must be in the common room." Heidi began to rush off. "Follow me."

I had never been in Gryphindor Tower, but I was pretty sure they wouldn't be giving me a warm welcome. Heidi didn't seem to consider that, and seemed rather excited about the whole quidditch extravaganza in itself.

As soon as we walked in, Heidi pointed out a stocky bo., "That is the captain."

Suddenly, a voice shot through the air like an arrow.

"How dare a Slytherin stride into our chambers?" Captain Corin yelled.

"Look," I smiled with the best warmth I could muster, "you know Heidi right? Well, she is an absolute quidditch goddess. You NEED to put her on your team. I'll even throw in free cookies, my Mom's recipe and everything."

Corin blinked angrily, "What position is the "flawless" at?"

Jerod turned to Heidi." ell him, which postition do you excel amazingly at?"
