It didnít particularly matter how much you prepared the weeks before, all those hours of trying to get yourself ready and the weeks of preparing to get back into perfect shape for it couldnít stave off any amount of the soreness that your first game of the season always brought upon you. It hadnít been a particularly rough game either, the Ravenclaw seeker hadnít been all that physical at all but accidents still happened. Heíd seen the snitch just in front of him but he had also seen Emily loose her balance and get hit by a bludger so heíd diverted to catch her just as the game was ended. He didnít regret it of course, his team was more important then winning a game when there would be plenty more opportunities ahead of them. Unfortunately having to catch her meant he had thrown his shoulder out and every muscle from his waist, through his back and down his arm was complaining.
At the end of the day he still hadnít felt any better so heíd decided to skip his usual study time to find his way up here and finally make use of these bathtubs. Collecting his swim trunks and a towel from his room he headed down the halls until he was met with the portal to the prefects washrooms, uttering the password he stepped through and then into the change room. Stripping from his school robes he slipped his trunks on and then walked to the back of the room and turned on the taps for the furthest tub, letting the bubbles and hot water fill it he sat down on the edge of it first just to let his legs dangle in it before lifting himself (awkwardly) up and over the edge to sit down on the bench seat inside of it.
Sinking down the seat he let himself slouch in order to let his head rest on the lip of the bathtub and to submerge his shoulders in the hot water, it was of course a absolute great feeling to soak up the heat but he still felt somewhat terrible for not being able to catch the snitch. He had almost gotten it a few minutes earlier and if it hadnít been for those two beams.. He would of won it right then.
