Complete To The World I Close My Eyes To See (Jan 3 2018)

Recommended Posts


It’d been almost a week since he last saw the charismatic redhead, though it wasn’t like Clyde had been counting the days, because he hadn’t. He was perfectly busy with his new quidditch regimen, and it was only now that he’d finally found time to take his new friend out for a spin around the neighborhood. He totally hadn’t been looking forward to this, cause she was just someone who went to the same school as him and knocked into him and apparently strung him on his toes the last time they’d met in the games room. 

Nah, he could do better without her teasing. 
Yeah right.

He had scribbled a note and owled her a few nights ago to ask if she was free today. Her reply came back quickly enough and that’s how they ended up on a strange power pole next to the local bakery shop, which, quite frankly, was just a cover-up as a platform to muggle eyes. They really didn’t wanna see people attempt what they would be doing in a few minutes. It was both ridiculous and exhilarating at the same time, and if you hadn’t tried Bush Telegraph, you haven’t been to Australia.

Well it’s time to break her in and show her how it’s done. 

Oh yeah, he could remember the skepticism when he had first heard of this type of transportation, believing whole-heartedly that failed attempts were more often than not and the person falling stupidly from the sky would have broken their thick skull with a resounding ‘splat’ on the pavement. Yeah, didn’t fancy that for himself.

But here he was, three years later, wired coat hanger in hand with the other gripping the power pole as he readied himself for impact and initiation of a new bush telegrapher. Absofuckinglutely brilliant! 

“Now just do what I do and zip down the power cable with your coat hanger. You shout out ‘Majorca Building’ about halfway through and hopefully we’ll see each other on the other side!” grinning cheekily, the beater hooked his coat hanger to the cable, purposefully standing backwards to face the redhead that was looking at him like he’d grown another head. Yeah, he had that effect on people sometimes.

With an excited whoop, the kangaroo kicked off from his standing point and zipped down the cable backwards, feeling the wind whipping past his back as he gained momentum. “Majorca Building!” and with a shout, he was zapped into the cable and on his way o their destination.

Hopefully zipping down backwards didn’t mean he would be reassembled backwards as well.

Cass had been having a pretty relaxed and easy time since running into her past Hogwarts schoolmate, and now Tallygarunga schoolmate. She had got the feel for the school area, and the town nearby, and had managed to make a trip into Melbourne with her aunt, but that was about it. And now Clyde had got in contact with her, asked her to grab a wire coat hanger and meet him at some place so that they could climb a power pole.

There was amusement written on her features as she eyed the young man, rather than disbelief. If he knew the number of things she'd heard of from her aunt, then he'd realise she had been prepared for some strange things. Though, admittedly, she was a little concerned when it looked like he was about to launch himself off, wondering if a coat hanger was enough to hold her own light weight, let alone his larger frame.

"Majorca Building, right," Cass nodded with a smirk, before lifting a brow as he turned to watch her, apparently with the intent to slide backwards. "Showing off?" She asked cheekily before he could leave, and then he zipped off and she canted her head as he vanished into the power line.

Welp, if Clyde could do it, then Cassandra certainly wasn't going to shy away. The young woman would even go backwards, without a fear in the world for the potential results of this travel.

Hell, if anything it looked like fun.

And so, holding the coat hanger, Cass launched herself off to zip backwards along the line as she called out clearly the name of the place she was supposed to head to, before feeling herself shift dramatically as she traveled the infamous 'Bush Telegraph' to wherever this place was that she was headed to.

The sun was shining and the birds were singing…and the world just somehow seemed...wider, for a lack of better word. How had he never noticed this before?

The Bourke teen had done his homework when he first came to Australia, having been told about the decidedly strange and exhilarating terrifying way of travel by Uncle Gawain before he ran off to try it out for himself. Clyde really was quite lucky, seeing as he’d never had a technical issue with this particular means of magical transportation, and thank Merlin his trusty coat hanger had never given up on him mid flight and literally left him to crash and fall on his face. That would have been a sticky end indeed.

It had seemed like a good idea to show off to the redhead and try out something he had been thinking about lately, though apparently, the biggest issue wasn’t the reassembling of every molecule in his body, like he had originally thought. No, it was the landing part that sucked. Clearly, the brilliant boy had neglected to factor in the momentum of his arrival, and had fallen flat on his ass quite literally on impact. Very smooth indeed.

So, that’s how the former lion came to be sprawled out on the ground, staring stupidly up at the clear blue sky while he blinked back the confusion of his latest crash. And to think, the beater was usually so sure of himself when it came to kissing the ground on the quidditch pitch. 

Clyde was suddenly pulled out of his daze day-dreaming by something dropping on top of him, literally knocking the wind out of him. When his mind had begun to function properly, he realized that it was actually someone that had fallen out of thin air instead of the bulldozer he had been thinking. The tell-tale fire-hydrant red locks in his face was a dead-giveaway as to who was currently using him as a fall-cushion. Lovely.

“You know, if you’d wanted to be the one on top, you could have just said so. I’m ok with being swept off my feet…again.” teasing the redhead sprawled out on him as he chuckled at the memory of her crashing into him a long time ago. 

This was turning out to be a great start of the day.

It was definitely a strange sensation, but also a very fun one that made her buzz with energy as Cassandra found herself arriving on the other end, whooping with glee as she dropped backward, seemingly uncaring for where she might end up landing. It wasn't as though the young woman hadn't taken a lot of falls in her life already, and she knew how to land without breaking something. Luckily for her though, she had cushioning for her fall... if one could call the pile of muscle and limbs cushioning.

"Woo! That was fun!" Cass laughed after having landed with an audible 'oof'. She laid where she was on her back for a few moments, until the person beneath her saw fit to try and tease, causing her to laugh again as she rolled off to the side, landing on her front on the ground beside him.

"Puh-lease, you were probably hoping that I would chicken out and go forwards so that I would hand in a compromising position on you," Cassandra gasped as she brought a hand to her lips, fluttering her eyelashes as strands of red fell across her features still, causing the green-gold of her eyes to stand out even more.

"Terrible..." The young woman tutted with a shake of her head, and then pushed herself upward in order to stand, "So what's the plan? Aside from trying to gain any opportunity to cop a feel?"
