((Set in the hospital wing after the Hufflepuff Vs Ilvermorny match))

Linden's shoes pounded the stone steps of the castle as he made his way up to the hospital wing. he knew that he should be celebrating with the team, or with HIS Lucas making sure he was okay, which he had done for a little while until he was sure Lucas Fletcher was alright, he didn't just kiss and run. the outcome that seemed almost impossible at the start of the year, Hufflepuff the overall quidditch champions. and Hufflepuff winning the match without the snitch having been caught.
needless to say, lin was on a high of adrenaline and the emotional rollercoaster that had been the match. and he wanted to talk to the Ilvermormy chaser before the rest of his team finished in the changing rooms and before they had to depart back to the US and he wasn't sure how long they would have. but they surely wouldn't go back if they were still needing the hospital's attention. if the nurse was to question him about bursting into the hospital wing he would say something about his upset tummy though it had well and truly cleared up.
He slowed down outside the hospital doors and waited a second taking a couple of deep breaths giving his heart a moment to slow down after he had run up from the pitch. he probably should take a leaf out of all of his other family members' books and run more. he opened the door and walked in he could see the chaser easily and made his way over to the foot of his bed. "G'day. it's Lucas isn't it?" he said not sure how else to start the conversation or really what he was here to say.

Lucas was in a lot of pain, and was struggling to relax in the bed. He wasn't sure how to relax without Einar with him, or not knowing how the game was going. Maybe Adam had been right about him. But Adam had made him captain, so he had so have some faith in the two of them, didn't he? He was lost in his own worries, in his aches and pains, when an unfamiliar voice broke into his reverie. He opened his eyes, turning his head to see the keeper. "That's me," he replied with a small smile and a dry tone. He sat up, trying not to wince. "But you know that already, mr. Keeper," Lucas chuckled dryly, repositioning to rest against the head set. "That was a nice tactic, caught me off guard. I'm not sure how you knew my name," He folded his hands in his lap, studying the boy.

The boy in the bed didnโ€™t exactly look comfortable. I fact he looked quite the opposite. Even he winced as the boy shifted clearly he had a lot of bruises or maybe a few breaks. He smiled slightly when the boy said that he already knew his name. I didnโ€™t, at least not until you asked me how I knew your name. I thought I had better check I was right first. Iโ€™m linden by the way.. He said as the boy shifted again leaving against the headboard.
as the boy said that it was a nice tactic he had used he shook his head no it wasnโ€™t. As far as tactics go it was pretty dirty. The whole match wasnโ€™t very clean he said. He thought for a moment do you know what happened after you left yet? he asked. He would have wanted to know the outcome of the match if it was him in the hospital bed.

Lucas' brow furrowed. "Wait... then why did you say it? That's a hell of a guess," he wondered if maybe the boy was a seer. That didn't seem overly likely, but he wasn't ready to just write it off. He snorted, smiling as the boy said the game wasn't clean. "And I'd always heard Slytherin was the house to look out for. I never thought the soft cuddly Hufflepuff kids would try to murder us," He teased Linden with a playful wink. Lucas looked around, pretending to think. "Hm... let me think. Is it safe to think that Huffley-puffs murdered enough of us that we were disqualified?" He gave the other boy a coy smile.

Linden was caught between wanting to tell this Lucas why he had called out to him (or not him) and playing along with the idea that he was the worlds best guesser. he smirked "how did you know I was calling to you?" he asked. not really answering the question but leading him in the right direction.
When the boy said that he thought Slytherin had the reputation of being harsh not the hufflepuffs. he smiled. to be honest he hadn't seen Connor ever play that hard. and tilly was really improving but he wasn't going to admit that. "they have the reputation, sure. but it is always the unexpected ones that you need to watch out for." he said.
at Lucas's explanation, linden chuckled. "I wouldn't say disqualified I think it was officially a forfeit. but your team put up a fight, they managed to take out Lucas, our seeker" he said not helping a small smile creep to the corner of his lips at the thought of him, he hoped that he was okay and wondered if he would be up here soon for a check over. he didn't admit that one of the hits on Lucas had come from Tilly, no that the point of mentioning Lucas had been to compliment the ilvermorny beaters but to bring his name up.

Lucas raised a brow at Linden's answer that wasn't really an answer. He let it slide, laughing at the boys statement about the underdogs. "We'll be more prepared for you next year. We'll actually find an alternate seeker," he laughed, giving Linden a playful smile. His eyes widened as Linden finally told him the name of the Hufflepuff seeker. There was a brief moment of silence before Lucas burst out laughing, which in turn had him wheezing for breath. He clutched at his ribs, falling back impossibly deeper against the headboard of the bed. "Oh, ow, ahaha, ow," he wiped at the tears now streaming down his face, unsure if he was crying from pain or from delight. "You're- you're really- ahah, you're really serious," Lucas wheezed, looking back to Linden.

linden raised his eyebrows as the boy said that they would be prepared for next year "you seem confident that we will both be in the finals again next year" he said teasing slightly. it wasn't that linden wasn't confident in the teams ability. he had meant what he had whispered to lucas on the pitch he was still the best seeker that he knew. but there were so many uncertanties. just because someone was the best didn't mean that someone else wouldn't get lucky.
the Hufflepuff hadn't really known what the other goys reaction would be to hearing that there had been another lucas on the pitch but breast big belly laughs were not it. it was infectious and linden started to giggle before full on laughing too. getting them both stern looks from the nurse. though maybe that was more annoyance that he was making her patient laugh and causing more pain. he caught lucas' question between laughs. and took a moment to catch enough breaths to reply "Of course I am not serious" he said. "one of the blows was a misfire... from one of our beaters" he said still laughing.

Lucas chuckled, resettling in bed and trying to ignore his new aches. "Confidence is the way to win," He replied flippantly. He laughed again and shook his head. "Well when you're bloodthirsty, everyone bleeds," He replied with a wink. "But that does make me curious, though. What brought you up here? I doubt I'm your favorite Lucas," He smiled at Linden.

Linden chuckled quietly to himself as other Lucas said that confidence was the way to win. he had been confident in his teammates' ability all season and here they were somehow the overall champions even if he hadn't been confident on the team for a while winning the matches.
"I suppose so." he said when the other boy said that if you are bloodthirsty everyone bleeds. he wasn't in fact he had been the opposite of bloodthirsty on the pitch. the chasers and seeker had just been trying to get the team points. he thought about Lucas, he had looked like such a mess when he had seen him. he wanted to make him better. he didn't like seeing anything in pain, he never had even as a toddler he had tried to save injured birds or rodents. "you are cute, I will give you that. but you are not my.. teams Lucas he said hoping that he wouldn't notice the half-beat between the words my and teams. "you asked me how i knew your name. and i couldn't leave you hanging on an answer for a year" he said.

Lucas chuckled, shaking his head. "Right. Not your teams Lucas," he winked playfully. He knew the kid must have the hots for the other Lucas. "What can I say, being a Lucas automatically makes you cute," he joked lightly. He winced as he shifted in bed. "Hey, I know I'm not your Lucas, but can I ask a favor?" He tried to give Linden his best puppy eyes, shifting his head so some of his golden hair fell into his eyes in a way he hoped was cute.

linden nodded as this lucas repeated that he was not his team's lucas emphasising the word team making it clear that he had not missed the pause. "Yes, not my Team's lucas he repeated as confidently as he could. "I'm not even going to reply to that" he said rolling his eyes as lucas said that maybe being called lucas makes you cute. "You are not MY Lucas. because Lucas is old enough to belong to himself as I am sure you are too." he said his ar,s crossed and one eyebrow raised in what was unmistakably a willow expression. but he had asked in a way that had crashed through his guard and had him thinking of his lucas. "It would depend on what type of favor you are looking for" he asked though his mind had spun off into a direction he didn't want it to be found in

Lucas chuckled and shook his head. "Mhmm," He replied airily, smiling as Linden spoke again. He gave the boy his best pout. Lucas liked to think he'd at least flustered Linden a little bit. He sighed a bit dramatically. "It's just- you are a hufflepuff, yeah?" Lucas sat up a bit, his expression turning more serious. "Look, I'm going to share a bit too much. I come from a really crappy family. I've gone no contact from most of them. My aunt is the same- she and I kind of bonded together. Long story short, she had to give up her son as a baby. He was lucky, he went to live with his dad."

Lucas turned a bit to face the other boy. "My whole point is, my aunt is going to meet her son for the first time later in the year, and I know he goes to school here, but I can't talk to him. I know it's just him and his dad, and I'm worried." Lucas turned his best pout to Linden. "I just- you're nice enough to come up here and check on me. I would just feel a hell of a lot better if I knew at least someone was here looking out for the kid. He doesn't have any siblings, he's by himself. School was tough for me for a long time, is there any way you could just- I don't know, keep an eye on the kid?" Lucas pleaded gently, worry clear in his eyes.

linden was starting to wonder if his crush on Lucas was as subtle as he had thought. this Lucas seemed to have it figured out and he had only known him a few hours. sure he had kissed him but it was only on the cheek and in the nurse's area and the Lucas sitting in front of him had even been there then. he was thinking of how he could be more subtle, make it clear that he was happy just to be friends when the boy interrupted his thought to ask him something
although his bright yellow robes and the fact that he had been playing for the Hufflepuff team were a bit of a give away he nodded when the boy asked if he was in Hufflepuff. "Yeah, that's my house" he said.
as the boy started to talk he was a bu surprised by the change in topic.
he listened and almost unconsciously he took a step towards him. talking with Casper seemed to be rubbing off on him because he put his arm around his shoulder and gave him a bit of a squeeze before letting go just like he would have done his roommate. he knew most people were not as into hugs as his roommate but it felt like he needed it. when he had finished explaining his situation and the situation of his cousin and aunt he shrugged almost nonchalantly 'Okay. Who's my new little brother?" he asked then realising something added "or Big brother?"
