I don’t consider myself athletic. Yes I go to the gym, workout, do yoga and such. I have an athletic body, but I’m not really athletic in the organized sports type thing. I can kick the shit out of people. I can probably out run people, but that’s boxing and mma aren’t exactly team sports, neither is most of track and field.
The Venatori don’t really do the sports. They do allow boys to play on local wrestling teams. Sometimes even play football. For the gifted they also do swimming, and track and field and some of the other out their single type sports. Rarely does anyone inside the Venatori actually play a sport. Short of maybe golf – ya know all those rich types.
And thus I’m not a fan of sports in general. I can play basketball, but I suck at it. I’ve never actually tried any other sports. Just like video games I’m not really good at the things most other boys my age were. Playing for a Venatori meant running around the AU building. We had game rooms, and gyms, dodge ball and ya know kid stuff, but the organized teams not really.
And I was never a team player so I stayed in my room, or the fishbowl outside Dae’lin’s office most of my free time studying and playing with literal fire until the fishbowl was needed. Jace dragged me out to play. Which is why I played basketball.
