Tori really didn’t mind going to the training center and fly a few laps around the pitch. It’s a very slow day for her whenever they are not in training and there’s not a lot of things to do at home. He mom would make her take care of Camryn but the little girl is already a toddler so her energy level is way higher than what Tori is willing to match. Sometimes, all she wants to do during her days off is to sleep the whole day. But not that day. She‘s thinking she might have gotten some sweets in her fan mail. Astrid is already scolding them about not taking it easy. Maybe they have become workaholics and the captain should be thankful for that because they are dedicated to their craft! "We are taking it easy! I’m just grabbing my mail and then I’m out," she said with a grin. As for Alaric, she raised an eyebrow. "Too obvious, huh?" He’s teasing her for sure. "I am not the one gets the loudest cheer everytime we are introduced," she pointed out. It’s fine with her. It makes sense that he’s got more vocal fans who are mostly females. Tori continued scooping her mails into her bag, making sure not to crumple any of them, especially those that were delicately folded into fancy shapes that she didn’t know could be folded into paper. She heard the unmistakable sound of tape being ripped off and she saw Alaric was taking it off a huge box. Inside was a teddy bear. "Aww… That’s cute!" But then, he offered it to her. "Oh no, that’s yours! I already have a lot at home." If she receives more stuffed toys, she won’t have any space left on her bed. Good thing Camryn is at that time in her life when she likes everything that her older sister has so she grabs all of the gifted stuffed toys from her room and brings them back to her room to play with. Then Alaric asked if they reply to their fanmails. "Sometimes," she admitted. "I have this old school typewriter at home and whenever I read a letter that really touched me, I write them back. It's the least I could do to thank them, you know?"

Astrid has been flying for as long as she can remember. She only stopped when she went to America and stayed all over the place. North, South, Central America, and then back to the South. She’s really been all over the place and she stayed in muggle areas so there’s no way that she could have ridden a broom and not get burned on a stake the next day. But in hindsight, she wonders what that would do to her with her ability to manipulate fire… It’s a thought, but thinking back, Sebastian was badly hurt from the explosion in the ruins and he still got scars from it while she didn’t have any scratches on her. Should she just light a candle and out her hand over the flames just to see if she would burn? Her mind wandered again while opening her package. "Okay, that wouldn’t hurt, but please, take it easy. I am serious." With Astrid’s height and built, it could be hard to take her seriously as the captain but her teammates know how she is and they all respect her. And she is eternally grateful for that. Alaric is trying to open up one of his packages noisily. Her, on the other hand, opened up the box of treats and saw a letter on top of the snacks. "Hey, I got a snackbox from Scotland!" She looked over at Alaric and Tori and the guy was offering her the stuffed toy and her declining it. She could relate to Tori with that. She gets a lot of stuffed toys too and sometimes, she gives them to her brother and cousins. She looked at the snacks inside the box and she’s glad that there are several of each kind in it. She could share some with her teammates and then bring the rest back to the apartment so Sebastian could also try them out. They like trying new things together. "Hey guys, you want to try these out?" She grabbed one of the smaller boxes in the package and showed it to them. It’s Tunnock’s Tea Cakes, according to the packaging. They look interesting. The conversation went to the letters they receive and Astrid nodded her head after hearing what Tori’s been doing. "I do too, but mostly only thank you cards. A typewriter is a great way to not get carpal tunnel from writing." She might look into getting one of those too.

Tori told them she was just here to grab her mails and packages and then she’s leaving. She even teased him that between the two of them, he gets the loudest cheer when introduced. “Nah, I beg to differ. It’s the entire team.” Bats is a famous team, not just because of their standing, but because of what happened at the Bats stadium before and to some of their team members. Both him and Tori suffered a lot after that blast, it’s something people don’t just forget easily. Not when it’s all over the news for a time. When people see him, even now, they still have that pity look in them when regarding him. Alaric can’t blame their reaction, what happened to him is horrible, though he didn’t need anyone’s pity. It’s all in the past now. He nodded at Astrid, “Don’t worry, I’ll just stay for an hour or so. I’m just waiting for Carina’s practice to end so I can ask her to eat dinner later.” Everyone’s aware of his setup with Carina at home and for a time the team teased him about it but for him, there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a mutual decision and both benefited from it, in terms of companionship on a daily basis. Of course they don’t need to know the brewing tension within him with that kind of setup with his best friend. Tori declined his offer, saying she’s got enough teddy bears at home while Astrid exclaimed about getting a snack box from Scotland. When Astrid offered them the food, Alaric looked at it suspiciously, “Are you sure it’s safe? What if they have sprayed with love potion?” He was just teasing but there’s truth in it too. Both girls confirmed that they do reply to their fan mails. As for him, he scratched his head, “I don’t…in my defence, I don’t know what to tell them, it's not because I don’t want to reply. He opened one fan mail this time and shared it with them, his eyes showing amusement in them while reading it silently. “See? And this is why I don’t want to reply… Dear Alaric…Will you marry me? I mean seriously, how can you even react to this?” Though he’s flattered, he can’t help feeling embarrassed with that.

"Whatever. We all know the truth. Right, Astrid?" Tori called in the cavalry. When it comes to the team introductions, the men really gets the louder cheers mostly because they are men. The male fans are fans, and the female fans are fans. She always teases Alec whenever they are hanging out and they get recognized. He’s really famous with the ladies, and she knows exactly what they are thinking. The team in general gets a lot of cheers from their fans, but you just know who’s the most famous out of them all and Tori is very far from being the most cheered for. Alaric, on the other hand? A lot of loud yells and shrieks from female fans. Alaric is in denial about his fame with the ladies and she’s quite sure that the reason is the lady he’s meeting for dinner, according to himself. "Speaking of Carina. Are you two like, dating?" She can’t help but asking. Curiosity’s been eating her up since the first time that she saw them hanging out. In their profession, if you are seen with someone outside of the pitch, rumors will start circulating and it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the team and management knows about it. All they know is that the two are friends. Astrid, on the other hand, told them about a snackbox from Scotland and offered to share it with them. She looked over and saw what they are. "That looks yummy!" She’s about to come to their captain to try the snacks out when Alaric asked about the safety of those snacks. "Have you received food that are spiked with a love potion?" Of course, Tori had thought of the possibility but are people really that stupid and desperate? "I’m sure the staff had screened all these before leaving them here for us to take whenever we can." She remembers one of the few encounters she had with their interns and they told her that one of their tasks is to go through the mail and make sure that there’s nothing remotely dangerous in them before they get to the players. She’s also sure that Alaric’s just joking, but he could be right too. Love potion is something that’s not exactly fatal, but it is still dangerous. Alaric revealed that he hasn’t replied to any of his fan mail and for some reason, this did not surprise her at all, though his reasoning behind it is valid. She didn’t know what to say at first either. Her teammate picked a random letter to read as if to make a point and the contents of it made her laugh out loud.  "Don’t tell me that’s the first proposal you’ve had! I am under the impression that you receive at least three proposals a day." As for how to respond to the letters, Tori had devised a way to turn them down softly but still make sure that she gives them something. "How would you react to that if they do it in person?" she wondered out loud. She is genuinely interested with his answer.

While the other two are arguing about who’s more famous, Astrid kept on sorting out her mail. There are a lot of postcards and cards in the pile from what looked like all over the UK. It’s crazy to think that she has fans from all over Britain. She wasn’t planning on joining the bickering but Tori made it impossible not to. "I’m with Tori on this one." Astrid grinned. It’s true though. The boys get more cheers than the girls because of the fangirls. They could scream louder. She knows exactly what Tori is talking about. "You do know that girls love a buy they could ‘fix’, right?" And they are all under the impression that pro-quidditch players ‘need fixing’ or something like that because they are pro-players. And yes, they mean the other meaning of the word ‘player’. Which brought them to the inevitable next part. Luckily, Tori played the devil’s advocate and asked the question in everybody’s mind. "I wanna hear the answer to that question too." Astrid stopped what she was doing and gave her full attention to Alaric. "Whatever you say will stay in this room. We promise," she didn’t need to ask Tori is she’s willing to keep the secret too because they all respect each other’s businesses but they need to know the truth.

 

Astrid understood the skepticism coming from her teammates. " They all looked sealed…" Astrid opened the box that the cakes were in and they are all individually wrapped so it didn’t look like it was tampered with. She wasn’t very worried about them but Alaric’s statement made her a little bit more wary about eating them. Tori has a point though. "Should we have the interns or staff test them out first to see if they are poisoned or laced with anything?" She’s only kidding, of course! She’s not going to risk anyone’s life just so she could have some sweets—even though they really look good and yummy. Eitherway, she grabbed one for each of them and throw them towards Alaric and Tori, who are now talking about how to respond to marriage proposals in letter and in public. Astrid chuckled because she did have her own share of fans asking her all sorts of inappropriate questions like marriage proposals. It’s during those times that she pulls the “I’m taken” card from her deck. Sebastian would definitely mind, but she’s not the only one with admirers in the relationship! "You know, it would be helpful being in a relationship when it comes to answering those kind of questions." She peeled the silver wrapping off the tea cake in her hand and took a bite from it. It is good!

Alaric can’t help rolling his eyes at the two who were ganging up on him regarding fame. “Think all you want ladies, you very well know our team is famous.” Regardless of who’s more famous among their team members, it doesn’t matter to him. He could tell, it’s no big deal with them too, they don’t let fame get to their heads. One thing he likes about their group is that they’re all passionate about quidditch. They’re here to play and enjoy the game. Winning is just an added bonus, same thing with popularity attached to it. They have a strong line up, despite the other team’s manager offering him a better salary package, he declined because he loves Bats to bits. Money isn’t that important to him, being Kragen’s only son, there’s a huge amount waiting for him. He can even leave his current job and just stay at home and he would  still be able to support himself using that money. He’s not planning to use it unless absolutely necessary. Right now, the salary he’s getting from his job is more than enough for him. Growing up, his parents already knew how independent he was. Tori’s question was unexpected which Astrid seconded. “Seriously? That’s what you all think of Carina and I?” He closed the big box, gathered the rest and piled them on top of each other. “We’re childhood best friends. That’s it. I offered to let her live in my apartment since she’s mostly just moving from one hotel to another.” He’s got plenty of space for one more person in his apartment. Astrid promised whatever he’ll tell them will only be between the three of them, “Yeah right, and the next thing I know, Alec and Sebastian are already aware of it by end of the day.” Oblivious that his ears turned beet red while answering that question. Let’s just hope the two didn’t notice anything ‘odd’ from his actions. “And before asking me that question Tori, why don’t you answer the same for you and Alec, huh?” He smirked at her. As for her second question about love potions, he shrugged, “I don’t know how to answer that because I never tasted anything from the gifts I’m receiving. I usually let my handler deal with them, give them to homeless and street children. Those who need it more than me. I mean come on, you expect me to eat that much?” In case they haven’t noticed, they’re receiving a lot of gifts on a daily basis. “I keep the letters, though.” Screened or not, Alaric simply had no time eating those sweets. Too much for him. The two continued to tease him about the message he received. He glanced at Tori first, “Not really the first time, but every time, I don’t know how to react to it so I just ignore it. It’s one of the few reasons why I’m not fond of reading fan mails.” and then at Astrid, “And just what do you mean by that?” He had a good guess what this talk was leading to so before he could put himself into trouble with the two ladies, Alaric dumped all his stuff in one big box and headed out of the mail room. “I better start my training so I can go home early. I’ll just grab my box later. See yah both soon!”

 

End it ladies, thanks!

Tori couldn’t help but giggle at Alaric’s reaction. He can deny it all he wants, but they all know that she and Astrid are right. The boys are more famous than the girls. "Whatever makes you sleep well at night," she added. Yes, their team is famous especially after that whole ordeal that caused a lot of trouble for the team and everyone in the Quidditch community. It was a time that they will never forget but will not talk about anytime in the near future. As bad as it was, she can’t deny the fact that it did have an impact to their fame right now. She guess negative publicity is still publicity. Then the personal question began, but Alaric shut it down immediately. She shot him an incredulous look, but let it go for now. "You didn’t answer my question, but whatever you say, Alaric. Whatever you say." She gave Astrid a look too, but with the direction the conversation was going, she would rather stay silent before it goes somewhere she would regret. Tori is in full support of what Astrid said about things staying in the mail room. She is kind of hurt that Alaric would assume that she tells Alec everything. That can’t be farther from the truth! She tells him most things, but not everything. Some things are better left unsaid and this is not her secret to tell, if there’s any. Which according to Alaric, there isn’t. She could tell that he’s holding back vital information aside from Carina and him being “roomies” because his ears turned red. And then, she was thrown the reverse card. She kind of knew that was coming. It’s probably the age old question within the team now. "We’re childhood bestfriends. That’s it." She threw the words right back at Alaric with a grin. At this point, she’s got used to avoiding questions about her and Alec because there’s nothing else to it. They’re best friends and that’s that. Nothing more, nothing less. And she’ leaving it at that. When the conversation went from questionable friendships to love potions, she nodded her head. She didn’t know that Alaric doesn’t eat anything that was given to them. It did make sense for him to donate them, but she trusts their staff to not let anything harmful through to them. Tori started packing up her stuff into a box too just like Alaric. "Now you are making me feel like shit for eating all these stuff when I could have given them to those who needed it more." But Astrid suggested something that sounded unacceptable if she wasn’t kidding. "That’s evil, but it makes me wonder how they screen these for that."  She probably should ask their staff one of these days. Alaric has some things to say, or not say about marriage proposals. Astrid, on the other hand, had a lot to say. "Yes, Astrid. What do you mean by that?" Of the whole team, only Astrid is the one in a long term relationship that they know of and her boyfriend is so dreamy. Of course, she never voiced that out, but anyone with a working sense of sight could see that. It looks like Alaric is done with the whole talk because he gathered all his stuff and said his goodbyes. By him not saying much, he is saying a lot. Tori let it go for now and made sure that she got everything she will be bringing home with her in the box. She turned to Astrid and said while watching Alaric’s retreating back: "Well, now we know how to make Alaric exit a room faster than he can say Quidditch." She stood up from where she was sitting and picked up her box of gifts and letters. "Let’s go?" she asked her captain.

 

End it please! Thank you!

Astrid found the conversation between her and her teammates hilarious. Tori keeps on teasing Alaric about being famous with the ladies and he keeps on insisting that the team itself is famous. That is true, but then again, in a group, there is always someone who is more famous than the others. It sucks to think about, but it’s the truth no matter what Alaric wants to believe. Tori seems to know and accept that as well. Alaric became a little too defensive when questioned about Carina and then the question was asked back to Tori who literally said the same exact line that Alaric said. She has no idea if there’s any other meaning to it just like how she could tell that Alaric’s has. She’s not going to meddle in her team’s love life, or lack thereof. As long as they do well on the pitch and do their job whenever they are needed to, they can fool around with whoever they want. Of all people, she knows the feeling of falling in love with one’s bestfriend because she’s literally dating her bestfriend. She’s one of the lucky ones.

 

Astrid tuned the two out while they continue bickering until she was called out again because of what she said. "Just that it’s easier to turn down marriage proposals when people know you are already in a serious relationship." Though it does have it downside because they are both public figures in two entirely different field. She wouldn’t have it any other way though. She likes her life with Sebastian right now. Alaric started gathering his stuff in a box and Tori followed. The former said that he’s doing some training before going home and the latter commented on what could make the former go away fast. This made the redhead chuckle.  "Don’t push it," she told Tori. Alaric might be a cool guy, but everyone has their limits and she would hate to have some tension within the team because of comments. Astrid put her stuff in her box as well and stood up. "Yeah. Let’s go," she said and walked out of the mail room with Tori. She still needs to get some groceries for the apartment.

Katie has been enjoying the Spring so far, getting a job makes one feel lighter and fairer. She was hoping the games would arrive soon and she could feel the winds rushing through while hitting her bat again. It has just been awhile since graduation and she had already decided on the team she would join. Some familiar faces and some weren’t but she was happy to meet new people. She felt the rush of adrenaline when she came to the Bats quidditch stadium, not really sure whether there was a match or not but she was bound to attend stadiums as much as possible. The food stand was always tempting and pulling her to check out what they have. She was also planning to head in the stadium later but right now….food first!

karolina had just finished meeting up with a friend who played for the ballycastle bats when she decided to stop by the food stands on her way out.  though she was petite and fit, karolina always had quite the appetite - especially since becoming a professional quidditch player.  her training schedule was far more grueling than anything she had ever experienced playing at beauxbatons and she had to make a conscious effort to focus on her nutrition.  though she was still one of the younger players in the league, karolina was finding that more and more people were beginning to recognize her on the street and so she put on her ball cap and sunglasses to try and blend in a bit more.  it was sunny outside so it wasn't as though she stood out like a sore thumb.  as she approached the cart, she noticed a younger woman standing there contemplating food as well.  taking her spot in line, karolina examined the menu for a moment before looking down at her cell phone.  it was quite the muggle contraption to have but it made communicating with people much easier and the calendar function helped her keep her training, match, and appearances schedules straight.  she truly would be lost without it.
