’Concentrate… concentrate!!’ That was what Fleur had to keep repeating to herself as she stared ahead, brows furrowed and hands gripping tightly on the wooden material. She could feel the tenseness of her muscles as she glared in frustration. Fleur knew for a fact that her feet were off the ground, but just barely. And she also knew she hadn’t gotten any higher than yesterday. Or the day before that. And so on so forth.
