Ben Pierce, Team Four
Flying Flamingos, Batman! (Arne)
Wed Feb 10, 2016 10:36

Ben clutched his broom in hand and bounced on his feet while he waited for his turn to go into the challenge maze. He wasn't anxious exactly; well, he was. He was anxious to get started, but not nervous or anything. It was probably entirely psychological due to his increasing anticipation for his own turn, but it seemed to him that it took Team Three forever to finish up so Team Four could be called. He was super thankful that his team wasn't the unlucky group numbered fifteen.

Finally, eventually, Team Four was up and Ben and Arne went through the portal into the Mirage Chamber. Mounting his broom as soon as they were through, Ben flew toward the prominently placed map they were supposed to transport for this first part.

He picked it up and as soon as he did, there was a shrieking racket and something covered with bright colors was flying right at him. Ben shrieked right back and took off flying in a random direction. The bird-creature-thing whatever it was chased after and Ben used every flying trick he knew to stay ahead of it and out of its clutches.

"Arne!" he yelled, "What is that?! Make it stop!" So far, he was managing to outfly it, but he wasn't sure what would happen if he jinked when he should have juked and it got close enough to make an attack. The sooner it was incapacitated, restrained, or somehow directed elsewhere, the happier Ben would be.

Spotting Arne out of the corner of his eye, Ben changed direction again to give the older student the best possible shot at the thing as he could manage while fleeing for his life. The map remained clutched tight but largely forgotten and now a bit crumpled between Ben's hand and the broomstick.

OOC: I have no specific creature in mind, so feel free to make it whatever you'd like Arne to go up against.
