4. Quidditch Match
Today was the first Quidditch match of the year. Gryffindor vs Slytherin. From what I'd heard Angelina Johnson and Fred were ill but still playing, Oliver Wood had broken four toes and six fingers so we had very little a chance of winning.
By halfway through the match it was Slytherin 80 and Gryffindor 20. Not very good at all. It was really bad to lose the first match because if you won that on you would get 450 points for the Quidditch and house cup and you got all of the points from the match.
I went into a bit of a daydream as the snitch was still nowhere to be seen when suddenly I heard a voice yell "Harry get out the way!" It was Fred chasing a Bludger that was coming full pelt at me. I ducked at the last second and then I saw the same Bludger speeding back at me. Someone went past me holding the Quaffel and got hit in the arm with the Bludger. They fell off of their broom and to the ground. The rouge Bludger kept coming after me and I had to focus on that and look out for the snitch. As I flew past the Gryffindor stand I heard a quick 'Look it's over there!" Whoever managed to see the snitch that quickly must have amazing eyesight. I bolted after it flying as fast as the broom would go. It was so close and then suddenly I was shoved aside by Malfoy, the new Slytherin seeker. He'd obiviously seen me going after it and then went for it himself. Now we were both pushing eachother and reaching out to grab the snitch. The Bludger came at me and hit Malfoy instead. He was behind me now so I had a better chance of catching it. The Bludger came and hit me in the arm. I ignored it and kept reaching out for the snitch. It was so close to my hand and then it darted upwards. I grabbed it and then the Bludger came at me and knocked me off my broom. I fell to the ground and my broom came with me. With my non-aching arm I held the snitch up. 'Gryffindor wins!" I heard somebody shout. Yes we've won! I thought. That's great.
I opened my eyes and I was in the Hospital Wing. I looked around and saw Malfoy and Angelina in beds, Malfoy was surrounded in Slytherins and Madam Pomfrey was trying to shoo them away from him and Angelina was with the rest of the team. "Harry!" A voice said and Ron and Hermione came running into the room with Neville, Dean and Seamus. "Harry are you ok?" Hermione said, "After the match Lockhart tried to mend your arm but he only made your arm do this." She picked up my arm and the wrist flopped straight down again. I stared at it for a bit and then said"That's horrible." "I know and the worst part is you have to drink Skel-Grow." Neville said. "Skel-Grow? What's Skel-Grow?" I asked. "It's a potion that makes bones grow back. It's disgusting." He replied. That night Dobby appeared at the foot of my bed and explained that he made the Bludger go wild. He also said that there was a terrible plot at Hogwarts. Something that had happened before.
