Cian was waiting for the team to show up at the quidditch pitch. Sure he could have used the training pitch for the practice but he wanted everyone to take part in the practice and since the training pitch doesn't have goal hoops it'd be hard for the keeper to practice. Instead of just immediately jumping into a practice, Cian wanted to have a quick meeting beforehand.
She tried to make sure she was the first to show up wanting to make the best impression. Seeing no one else save for the captain her smile got a little bit wider.

He'd run all the way from the common room nonstop. He made his final charge down to the quidditch pitch stopping once he was in front of both Cian and Kaisa. "Did I... miss it? ...Am I ...late?" He looked absolutely terrified they'd tell him yes and he was cut from the team.
He strode into the room, clapping a hand on the first year's shoulder before speaking as he sat down. "Don't worry, Cian wouldn't do that. Trust me, he's a lot better than any other captains we've had so far."
As Selena found her place Cian took a deep breath before beginning to speak. "Well, hello everyone and welcome to this year's Hufflepuff Quidditch Team." Cian said with a smile on his face. "I just wanted to have a... pep talk if you will before the practice and before our first match. Hufflepuff has been holding on to the Quidditch Cup for two years now, and I'd like to make it a third. I was captain both years and I know that teamwork makes the road to victory a lot easier, but you can't do that without knowing your teammates. So I figured maybe we could all introduce ourselves or something? It might be a stupid idea but hey, it's worked that past two years." Cian said with a nervous laugh, "Anyways, I'm Cian and I'll be the team's captain and one of the chasers for this year. I'm in my sixth year here at Hogwarts and I was born Brighton, England. I think that's it for now, you'll learn more about me as we grow as a team. Now um, who else would like to go?..."
OOC: I honestly don't know what this is rip me trying to hold a successful meeting.
He quietly spoke up. "I'm Blair, fifth year. This is my second year at Hogwarts, transferred from Ilvermorny at the end of my third year, and I was born in Hawaii, USA, on a military base. Uh, last year I was in the three broomsticks hostage attack, and got pretty badly messed up, so I might have to sit out or take it easy on occasion. And that's all from me, you'll learn more throughout the year."
- "She always had that about her; that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world." Message Me
Selena appeared to be next in line for the list of introductions, her brown eyes falling on Blair as he finished up before she offered a shy smile and directed her attention toward the ground. "My name is Selena Argyropoulos and I'm a fourth year. I was born and raised in Greece. I'm playing seeker this year and I was also in the attacks at the Three Broomsticks. I have a prosthetic left hand now because of it," she said and gently softly, not bothering to let any sort of emotion consume her. "It's been modified to help me when it comes to catching a snitch in case I do need to use it. I'm also the leader of the Potions Club here at Hogwarts." She fell silent to allow another person to go.

"Hi! I'm Vaugh Pryor. I'm a first year and I'm from the Shetland Islands. I've never actually been that far from home before I came here. A lot of the stuff you all do here everyday is new for me and it's sort of scary. But it's also been a whole lot of fun too." He realized he was rambling and quickly shut himself.
