Minnie had managed to avoid anyone in her slow journey to the hospital wing, the weight of what had happened only adding to the pain of the bludgers. She was just trying to keep it together until she was able to sit down, until she could draw a curtain around her and let herself break down. Minnie hadn't exactly been doing great, she'd been working all hours, practicing the rest of the hours, her sleep had diminished with all the extra work she was putting in and everything else but her studies and quidditch had fallen away. So much had been riding on this game, she had so deeply felt the need to prove herself, so deeply wanted to show that she could manage everything, but all it had shown was that she couldn't. She couldn't win one game. She just so often got take out, was unable to catch the snitch in enough time and it rested with her team, and though she had some faith, deeply in her heart if they won without her, then what was left for her their either. Her passion and drive for quidditch, the fact she'd kept doing it after her parents had insisted on not, and the fact now she knew her doing and taking on more in quidditch had played into her not getting prefect, was it at all worth it? Was this pain worth it?
Minnie touched the golden snitch necklace as she walked into the hospital wing, thinking of Leda who had been to encouraging to her and given it to her. It had not brought her the same luck it had for Leda in her games. Minnie didn't bother announcing herself she just made her way to a bed. She sat down on the edge, slowly, with little pain filled moans pulled off some of the outer quidditch gear. She placed them down beside her as tears began bubbling over, the peace and quiet of this room, the distant noises of quidditch both felt oppressive like a massive weight sitting right on her bruises. She was glad she'd broken up with Noel, no matter how nice it would be to have a friend in this moment, she wouldn't be able to face her failure if it resulted in his house's victory. But god, it would be nice to have a friend in this moment. She let out a little sob as more tears streamed more steadily down her face, she covered her face with her hands and just cried, letting it, all for the first time since her hogwarts letter, out.
