The shouts of the Quidditch players practicing on their practice pitch in the middle of the Australian bushland had died down an hour ago. All that was left was the sound of animal calls outside of the protective magics surrounding the pitch. Unfortunately for Leanna Evans, the sun had only just set. It would be some time before it would cool off out there, and even then, it wouldn't cool off much. So she pounded back water constantly as she practiced her aim and strength, the pitch filled with only the sounds of her grunts and the crack of bat on Bludger.

For Leanna, the grind never stopped. When she wasn't practicing with the team, she was practicing on her own from sun up to sun down almost every day, except for the time she allotted to spend with her family. Even when the team was practicing, she was the first on the pitch by a long stretch and the last one to leave by an even longer stretch. If she wanted to make it to first string Beater, that was what she had to do. She could hear the voices of her coaches the last few years, telling her that she was extremely talented "for a Muggleborn." It made her grind her teeth in anger, but she kept her mouth shut and let her anger at their elitist words fuel her ambition to prove them wrong. She was better than, or at least on the same level then, most professional and pureblood Beaters in the league. But still, a handful of Purebloods and a few Half-bloods had been recruited into a first string position ahead of her now and it was beginning to wear her spirit down.

The only thing that had ever truly brought her happiness and distracted her from her problems was now the thing giving her the most trouble.

But Leanna was a hardass. She wasn't going to give up. It just wasn't in her DNA. She would make it to the first string position, or she would run herself into the ground trying.

Finally, Leanna landed on the ground and braced herself as the Bludger came whirling toward her. It hit her in the chest, knocking the wind out of her, but she grabbed hold and didn't let go. She wrestled with it for a few moments, then heaved it into the box and secured it. Leanna sat in the dirt for a few more minutes, catching her breath and chugging water. She stared up at the sky, filled with stars, and tried made out the constellations as she rested.

Leanna eventually hauled herself up and into the locked room. She stripped down to her training shorts and training bra, refilled her bottle with cold water, and went into the training room. She stopped in front of the mirror for a second and stared at herself. Her fiery red hair was dark with sweat and water and plastered against her pale skin, and her muscles rippled and flexed as she observed herself with a little admiration. For a second, she thought, Damn. I look kinda good. But then her eyes caught sight of the burn scar on her stomach and she quickly grabbed a shirt out of her duffel bag and hastily put it on. Sure, no one else was around, but she didn't like the reminder.

Today she would be working on her upper body. She decided to start with alternating sets of weighted pull ups and bent over rows as a warm up.

Scarlett was tired, She had been in with the trainer, recovering from an injury was never fun and even with the magic medical advances sometimes the muscles and the ligaments needed a little bit of extra work. The knee was better, but she was still pissed the team from Belgium had knocked her off the broom they way they had and not drawn a penalty. However she was alright with the rehab. Besides she and the Trainer new each other in school and he was always good to talk to. That and his kids liked to come over and fly on the various brooms she kept in her shed. After saying goodbye and promising to bring the kids by for Dinner on Sunday she headed back to the locker room. 

It was a good time to head out and back home for the night. She would have to come in a little early to get it wrapped, do a little pre work out stuff. Again she didn’t mind. She headed into the locker room convinced she was the last one in the complex she was surprised when she heard someone in the weight room. She poked her head in. ”Leanna.” She was sure she sounded surprised. ”You are going to burn yourself out.” She said as she stepped into the weight room.

Leanna heard the surprised voice at the door, but didn't let it break her concentration. She finished her set of pull ups, counting softly under her breath, then dropped to the floor and turned. "Van Acker." She said in a very professional voice by way of greeting as she detached the weight belt from around her waist. "That's the point. You have to burn out your muscles so that when they rebuild themselves, they grow back stronger. It's called biology." Leanna voice wasn't uninviting exactly, but it was dripping with sarcasm. 

Leanna picked up the ten pound dumbbell at her feet and bent over the bench and became pulling it straight up toward her shoulder. "Besides. If I don't I'll never make it to first string What are you still doing here anyway? Pot calling the kettle black much.?"

The tone took her by surprise but then again Scarlett had not really talked to the young woman much, and thus didn’t know much about her either. It was mildly off putting. ”Right.” he said, humorless with her reply as she looked around the weight room. The woman in question knew what she meant and so she was not going to waste her time explaining herself. She let out a small sigh as she looked at the weight room and then back to the young woman who then asked what she was doing. Though she didn’t know if she exactly wanted to share all that much with her. 

”PT with Charlie.” she indicated her knee. It always took those in PT a little longer to work through what they needed to do. That and Scar always liked to talk to the man. It was kind of nice her break up had been public and he had been in the process of a divorce and talking about how miserable that was, was nice. ”Well don’t work too hard then.” She said with a small polite smile.

A smirk tugged at the corner of Leanna's lips and she looked at the girl in mild amusement. "Look. Van Acker. I'm just teasing." She went back to focusing on her rows. "I know what you meant anyway, and I appreciate the fake sentiment and menial effort, but I'll be fine." She sighed and stood up again, straightening up. "And around here, most people seem to think that your muscles get bigger because the movements generate more magic in your body or some bullshit like that. It's like, broaden your goddamn perspectives. Being a pompous pureblood and knowing nothing except what's in your own little bubble."

Leanna eyed her knee for a moment then immediately met her eyes again. The last thing she needed was someone accusing her of being overtly gay in the locker room. "Oh. Well. Hope that went well then. Knee injuries can be a bitch." She liked Charlie well enough, he'd helped her through a few injuries, but didn't know him or her well enough to comment anymore on it.

Leanna started to put up the weights she'd been using and glanced over at her. "Look, don't leave just on my account. You're fairly new here, so you don't know me yet. That works in my favor. I only work my ass off because every one, including myself, gives me such a hard time. I'd like at least one person on this team to not give me a hard time. It'd be a nice change.

Scarlett’s sense of humor was out the window, even so she didn’t find the “tease” all that funny. Considering she then went to accuse the gesture as being fake, the young woman was not winning herself any good favor in the eyes of her teammate. Scar had been called many things, but she had never been accused of being fake. She didn’t find it particularly nice either. ”Right.” She repeated once more, finding the desire to say other things too tempting at the moment. She was outspoken enough, but she rarely liked to release her vitriol on those she was supposed to be working with. Reserve or not, they still wore the same uniform robes. She glanced at her and furrowed her brow at what she said. 

”Maybe if you didn’t act like such a twit you wouldn’t have people being so hard on you.” She pointed out, finding it challenging to keep holding her tongue. ”I appreciate sarcasm as much as the next person but you hide behind it.” She said with a small sigh. It was much nicer than she had thought it might be, but she was not in her typical playful mood. She liked to tease and she liked to push buttons but she was never outright rude about it. ”I can promise you I have never said anything for hell of it. So- check yourself once in a while.” Scar suggested, though in all honesty she had more to say about it she decided it was in her best not to. The last thing she needed was a legitimate complaint about her attitude. ”And I am only new to you. Not the team.” Scarlett had worked hard to get back on the Aussie team and she was not about to let someone with a chip on their shoulder derail her.
