This could've gone better.

Post by Jonathan Finch-Fletchley on Wed Apr 19, 2017 9:24 pm

For someone who tried to make it a point that that he wouldn't play Quidditch, he spent a lot of time near or at the quidditch stadium.

He couldn't help it, he liked being able to be near it because he felt like it was the one thing that still connected him and Nathan, y'know, before he became a werewolf. He really wished he could have watched Nathan play or practice.

But before he was turned. He had to make that clear.

As if it wasn't already.

Jonathan felt bad for thinking like that. But it wasn't something he could change. Well, maybe. But he definitely didn't seem like he was in a rush to change it, no matter how much he missed Nathan's old self. He'd gone out of his way to avoid his brother since that night over six years ago, so he didn't really know much about Nathan anymore. He often wondered what the older Finch-Fletchley was like now. He wondered if Nathan was still the same person he was before being turned, or if the change had made his personality into another one.

He was scared to find out.

He didn't want to find out that Nathan was completely different. That he wasn't the loving person he used to be. That was why he didn't get near him, even now. You'd think six years was enough to let wounds heal, both mental and physical, but it wasn't for the young Hufflepuff. At the very least, he figured, he had the quidditch stadium that his brother had once played on to keep him company right now.

Nicole didn't often find her way down to the pitch, but she rather liked watching teams practice, she decided. Particularly when the Hufflepuff house team was running patterns. They were impressive, and she even had become friends with a couple of them. Somehow, that background noise helped her focus.

She had not expected to see Jonathan there, though. Perhaps they never came at the same time -- that is, until now. So although she was a bit nervous to do it, Nicole made her way across the bleachers to sit a couple feet away from him. Casual, she told herself, but not unfriendly. Good.

"Hi," she greeted gently, hoping not to surprise him. Then again, he'd probably seen her coming. "I didn't know you liked sitting out here." Was that odd to say? What if he hadn't even noticed her? After all, she looked a little young for her age, yet, and was a bit strange. But, then again, many people thought he was a bit strange as well, didn't they?

It seemed everyone ended up surprising him in some way.

Maybe he should work on not being so oblivious to his surroundings.

Jonathan clearly hadn't been expecting anyone to else to be there, aside from probably the players who he hoped wouldn't notice him. It was evident in his reaction to Nicole's greeting. He'd been startled, as always, and looked at the second year with widened eyes.

He looked like a deer in headlights.

Merlin, he was hopeless.

A few seconds later, he remembered Nicole was there and snapped out of it, shaking his head. "Um, yeah. I come to watch the team practice, sometimes." He told her. "I just.. like to try to make sure they don't see me." He added as an afterthought.

Nicole's cheeks lit up when he jumped, as she couldn't help but feel guilty for it. As far as she was concerned, being odd was actually something of a good thing. But it maybe didn't work so well if both people were odd. Awkward, really. Or maybe he was just shy and she was the weird one.

Then again, his response was a little strange.

"Oh," she said, uncertain. It kind of sounded like he wanted to be left alone. But then again, she wasn't brilliant at social cues. So she stayed anyway, hoping she was just misunderstanding him.

"Um.. Why would it be bad if they saw you? Surely it would be alright since they're our housemates. At least they're not Slytherins or something. I heard their team has been fighting lately."

Jonathan bit his lip.

Sure, it would be fine if he was literally just there to watch. And he was, but there was also an ulterior motive to his being there. That was to see if there could really be any way that he could be on the team. He felt his quidditch skills were lacking, how couldn't he when he never actually played? And he definitely didn't think he was worthy enough of playing on the team.

"Not when they want you on the team." Jonathan responded, looking out at the pitch. The members of the team ran trial after trail and after watching them for a bit, Jonathan felt like he could almost see Nathan there.

He wasn't sure he wanted that, though.

"They seems to think that.. I might be good at quidditch. Like my.. brother." His eyes flickered from his hands to Nicole and back as he spoke. He felt strange, telling her this, not that he knew any other feeling but feeling strange.
