As Tia moves behind Verk and shoves him toward the ball, the high pitched humming becomes louder and the ball's shuddering and shaking becomes more pronounced.  All stand transfixed as clouds of steam begin to emanate from the ball's seams.  Just as someone yells, "Hit the deck!" (which everyone obediently does and promptly buries their heads in their arms) the ball explodes and, after the smoke and debris clear away, all raise their heads in awe to look upon....

Verkolak, rising from the ground. His face is blackened from the explosion and smoke is billowing off of his robes. Everyone notices that his eyebrows now seem to be missing and the expression on his face is not pleasant.

TIA! Just exactly how many termite drones did you use in that one?!

*stands up, brushing bits of soccer ball off

her robe and looking disgusted* Termites? I'll have you know I never make the same mistake twice. Besides, you don't get explosions like that out

of termites unless you mix them with starfish extract and I don't own any more starfish extract thank you very much!

*stalks over to the

middle of the explosion area and starts examining the ground* And you can stop glaring at me like a dazed dementor, Verkolak! I'm telling you I didn't

blow it up!

"You mean he

used to be alive???" Mad asks.  Looking thoughtful, she adds, "I wonder what made him such an old crank.  Maybe he had a girlfriend like

Tia."  She chuckles to herself.

 :-[  "Hm... well..."

stuttered Mad, trying to ignore Tia, "since we don't have a ball anymore, maybe we should all go get our brooms?"

"I've got a better idea," said

Cho lazily.  "Couldn't we just go back and get our wands and do a summoning charm and summon our brooms?  That'd be soooo much

easier."

She sat down on the grass and watched as Tia continued to examine the bits of ball that were left on the ground.


/>"Tia, what are you looking for?  Some secret potion that you put on the ball to make it blow up?  Or is this your idea of a fun jigsaw

puzzle?"

*smiles innocently at Cho* Would you

believe I was running a study on the consequences of mixing magic and muggle artifacts? Would you believe it wasn't supposed to blow up?

/>
Ah well. *gives the dirt a final kick and turns away, still ignoring the blackened Verkolak*

*pulls her wand out of her sleeve and makes

a few passes. Her broomstick pops into existence a hundred feet away and shoots straight toward her at about ninety miles an hour, despite the fact that

it looks like it was used for a game of tug-o-war with a pit-bull*

Slow down, darn you! Stop! *the broom screeches to a halt and drops

unceremoniously to the floor. She kicks it a couple times and it slowly rises into the air again* Piece of junk. I don't know why I keep it.  


/>*hops on to the broom and sits side-saddle, hovering* Well, it's better than the ground, anyway.

So, now that we've confirmed that we're a

bunch of close-minded magic-users with no taste for land-bound games, does someone know how to play anything besides Quidditch?

Uh... I think I heard of a muggle

game once. My parents used to watch it all the time, but I never got into it. It was called basebat or batball... or something... basically they throw a ball

at you, and you hit it with a stick, and then you run around the bases... or something... I don't know. Anyone up for chess?

The blackened Verkolak,

who has spent the last few minutes struggling to not let loose with any of the Dark Arts, finally calms down enough to walk off the field, possibly to rejoin

the hunt for the cow in the Slytherin's common room. Smoke still rises from his head, it is difficult to tell if it's from the explosion or his

temper.

That's baseball Shelly. It's fun to

watch, but hard to play. If we really want to try a Muggle sport, how about something a little easier? Kickball is like baseball, sort of, but you kick it,

instead of using a bat. Or we could try to use the Beater clubs and give baseball a try.

"We could play keep-away from

Verk on broomsticks," sniggered Cho, watching the steam hover over his head.

"What's all this

about kicking???  Don't Muggles play any games where they use their hands??"  Mad sighs.  She is feeling an odd sort of impairment for never

having lived around Muggles, and her competitive side doesn't like it.

Muggles do play fascinating games with thier hands...it's called 'politics'. *rolls eyes* Don't worry, Mad, you're not missing anything by not associating with muggles.

Ah....or so I've heard. I wouldn't stoop that low myself. Um.

uhm, if it means anything weve

conjured up another soccer ball. And this one has spell on it that returns all trap spells to their caster.
