Req's shielding spell dissipated as soon as the knock-back jinx had made contact, the faded blue light receding away gradually. He considered sending out another spell, to catch Kane in the wake of his spell rebounding. But his sense of honor, and the fact that his Protego had essentially done just that, kept him from doing so; all for the better when he knew that Kane was about to take the impact of his own jinx.
Instead, Requiem took off at a light sprint across the Quidditch pitch towards where Kane was; battling across the pitch with the potential for hitting fliers in the crossfire wasn’t a risk worth taking under recreational circumstances, so it would be for the better if they had less people between them. As he ran, he spotted a broom not far off of his path of travel. It was an old Comet model, one owned by the school and at that, one that had probably seen better days.
“Accio broomstick!” he shouted as he ran. The broomstick lifted off the ground, and flew towards him. With a well-placed jump, Requiem mounted the broomstick, avoiding the Stupefy spell that Kane had sent along the ground by a relatively narrow gap. A second after mounting, he sped the broom forward. Half way across the pitch, he had reached a speed at which the broom would maintain enough speed to carry it across the pitch without him pushing it faster. At that point, he gave a very slight angle downward, and dismounted.
“Wingardium Leviosa,” he said, casting a light levitation spell on himself to break his fall against the ground. He landed comfortably, if not softly, and watched the broomstick fly in Kane’s direction. He didn’t intend for it to hit, but for it to serve as a distraction. Crouched on the ground after his fall, he gave a motion with a wand, and shouted, “Stupefy!” returning the favor, as the saying went, to his opponent.
