"Hello, everyone. I'm Professor Lich. Firstly, welcome to Hogwarts! I hope you all are as excited as I am for First Year Flying Lessons this year. I will be teaching you how to ride a broom and different things about quidditch. Just want to let everyone know that it's okay if you don't get everything first try, and that's what practice is for. I'm glad to be teaching every single one of you and don't be afraid to ask any questions."
Oak set and enchanted a few things in the field before students arrived. He enchanted the brooms to make sure they only flew at a maximum of twenty feet high and eight miles per hour, since they would be practicing flying that day. He also made sure they would lower if a student loses balance and will stop if a student tells it so. He also created a course, four layouts for each house, full of magic rings. When the students get to that point, each ring they flew through would give a point towards their house. But they had to practice some before getting to that. "Welcome class," he says when students start to file in. "Today will be quite exciting as you can see at the field. But first, everyone should practice flying first. Get on your broom and try to imagine yourself in the air when keeping your feet up. Once you feel comfortable enough with that, you can start flying some. Every thirty feet you fly forward without falling or losing balance gains you ten points for your house. After a bit of this, I'll explain the course. Don't be afraid to ask for help!"

Finally. EQ thought with a sigh of relief. They were finally getting to do some flying today, and on top of that, he could earn house points for Ravenclaw. Of course, Lena and Cass would be getting points for their houses too, but that's what makes it fun: a good, old-fashioned Schmidt-off. Flashing his cousin and sister a look of excitement, he mounted his broom and took off.
Given that last time she'd barely gotten off the ground without wobbling and losing her balance... this didn't seem like it would be easy. She mounted her broom and raised just barely into the air, so that her feet could still touch the ground if she needed them too. This balancing on the broom thing was difficult, still.
