Even after the class left, Hermione was unable to stand.
"Hermione are you alright?" Kristine asked.
"Yeah, I'm doing alright," Hermione said. "Just a little shaken that's all,"
"You must have been. You flew up at least 20 meters high," Kristine said.
"Yeah, I don't know how my broom went out of control. I'm sure that I-"
"Hermione don't think about it anymore. It was an accident. Everyone has one of those. I'm sure that there were plenty before you who accidentally went out of control before,"
"You're right. Thanks Chris for both saving and comforting me," Hermione said.
"Hey what are friends for?" Argus asked.
However even thought she said that Chris was correct, Hermione truly wasn't convinced. Even after she was alright even to stand up, she still kept on thinking about the accident.
However, she soon forgot about it as they had to go to their next class.
During lunch, Chris was eating with Hermione and Kristine and talking about their Transfiguration homework until Professor Flitwick came up to Chris.
"Hello there Professor Flitwick," Chris greeted.
"Hello there Mr. Evergreen. Can you please come to my office for a bit?" He asked in a serious tone.
"Sir, am I in trouble?" Chris asked.
"No, Mr. Evergreen, I just wish to have a little chat with you," Professor Flitwick said.
"Alright then," As Chris had no choice, he said goodbye to Hermione and Kristine before following Professor Flitwick.
Professor Flitwick led Chris inside his class and closed the doors.
"Sir, I don't think I did anything wrong to grant a private conversation," Chris said.
"Like I said, Mr. Evergreen, you are not in trouble. I was outside for a bit and happened to see you catch Miss. Granger when she fell. Firstly, I would like to award you 10 points for your bravery,"
"Thank you Professor," Chris said.
"Anyways, beyond that, let's get to the point shall we? So Mr. Evergreen, what do you think about Quidditch?" Professor Flitwick asked.
Chris knew where this was going.
"I think it's quite interesting Professor," Chris said.
"Well, then I'm happy to inform you that I would like you to play as the Seeker for the Ravenclaw team," Professor Flitwick said.
"Sir, I'm but a first year and first years are not allowed to have brooms," Chris said.
"I can get past that rule. As long as the entire team isn't made up of first years it'll be a piece of cake," Professor Flitwick said.
"Well then I would love to be part of the Quidditch team," Chris said.
"Excellent. I'll take you to our captain right now. Follow me," Professor Flitwick said as he left the room. He went inside a classroom that Chris was unfamiliar with and he quickly took out a boy that looked around 16.
"Chris, I would like for you to meet Brian Milton. He's the captain of the Ravenclaw Quidditch team and also the Chaser. Mr. Milton, this is Chris Evergreen, a first year student that I wanted you to train to become Seeker within 2 weeks,"
"Professor, this... I don't know if a first year can do it," Brian said.
"Don't worry about it. As long as you can give him some basic training, he'll be up and running in no time since he caught a girl dropping 20 meters high from her broom,"
"Sir, a dropping girl and a Snitch are completely different. It'd be much easier to catch the girl as the girl is much bigger than the Snitch,"
"Oh, I wouldn't know about that. While size and speed would be different, I think that Mr. Evergreen's skills are there. Who knows he might be the next Andre Egwu*,"
(Andre Egwu is the Ravenclaw Keeper that went to Hogwarts with Charlie Weasley in 1984. He was considered the best Quidditch player in his time at Hogwarts by some while he thinks that Charlie was better. However, he was still extremely talented at Quidditch.)
"Alright Professor, I'll train him for the game in November," Brian said.
"Alright then. Welcome to the team Mr. Evergreen. You can go back to class now, Mr. Milton. I don't want you to miss more of your class time," Professor Flitwick said.
"Alright Professor. Well then Evergreen, I'll see you tomorrow for practice," Brian said.
"Yes, Captain," Chris said.
Professor Flitwick dismissed Chris and he went back to the Dining Hall where Hermione and Kristine were waiting for him.
"So what happened? Did you get in trouble? If you did, I'll talk to Professor Flitwick that you only flew fast to save me. He'll surely forgive you," Hermione said worriedly.
"Yeah, it's not fair that you have to get in trouble," Kristine said.
"I thought I would get in trouble too, but Professor Flitwick didn't chastise me," He then moved in to whisper to Hermione and Kristine so that nobody could hear him. "He invited me to the Ravenclaw Quidditch team and he awarded me 10 points,"
Hermione and Kristine both looked at him shocked. It was only a couple of months since they knew of the Wizarding World, but they learned a lot along the way. They knew that Chris was the youngest person to be in the House Quidditch team since a 100 years although he'll have to share that achievement with Harry later.
"Wow congratulations Chris!" Hermione exclaimed.
"Yeah we're going to be number 1 this year," Kristine said.
"Guys quiet down a little," Chris said as he noticed that people were staring at them.
"Oh right sorry," Hermione said.
"So what are we going to do to celebrate?" Kristine asked.
"Well, it's only getting into the team. We'll celebrate when we win the Quidditch Cup," Chris said. "When that happens, during vacation, I'm going to ask my father to take us all somewhere nice,"
"Alright then," Kristine said. "We're depending on you to win the House Cup for our vacation,"
"Yeah, I want to visit a lot of places," Hermione said.
