Ludo and HestiaWHAT:
Ludo gets some slap happy news.WHERE:
24 August 1977RATING:
An owl tapped at the window. It was way too early for post, but when Ludo tried to ignore it, the owl just started pecking at the window with annoying frequency.
Ludo rolled out of bed, threw the window open and let the messenger in. After a few moments and a drink from the water dish, the owl flew off, leaving behind a letter bearing the Hogwarts seal.
Too early to deal with OWL results. He tore open the envelope anyway and scanned the letter.
Wait a moment.Forget
the stupid OWL results.
Hestia was in the guestroom down the hall. They had come to his house a week ago to get in some Quidditch fun practice time and though they had agreed on a strict "no wake up before 10" rule, oh well, it was time to wake up now.
He threw the heavy oak guestroom door open and stood there in all his pyjama clad glory, letter in hand.
Yep. Still sleeping.
He bounded over to the bed in two big steps and began some enthusiastic Hestia shaking.
"Wake up! Guess what?" he said as soon as she stirred. He waved the letter at her. "I've been made Quidditch captain!"
