    For some reason Kerry was feeling a lot of anxiety. This wasn't nearly as dangerous as flying, but the way Madam Chai made it sound, screw up and you'd go to the hospital. Just like those assholes at the other school--

    Almost as soon as he was on the runway the dummy--the jiang shi--began walking towards him. He set up, getting the wand ready, but he wasn't waiting for it to get close: Kerry cut loss on the dummy when it was only a few paces from where it had started.

    With a powerful thrust of his wand, he forcefully intoned, "Locomotor mortis!"

    He saw the jiang shi look like it caught its toe on the rug or something. Oh, damn. It was still coming, and Kerry wasn't going to wait for it to get any closer.

    He sighted it in, wand at his side, then after it was no more than 4 steps beyond where it had tripped, Kerry let the jiang shi have it.

    "Locomotor mortis!"

    There was a loud Snap! and the jiang shi lurched a step to the right. It stopped for a moment, then began shuffling towards him like a zombie--

    It lost its kneecap! He could see the bulge in the black pants where the kneecap was only hanging in place due to the gel. At least it's not screaming and it's gonna take its time getting to me, he thought.

    With three more attacks, Kerry decided to set up slowly this time. The dummy was about a third of the way down his end of the runway, but the screwed up leg was slowing it down a lot. Let him have it, Kerry thought.

    He attacked, mumbling "No mercy!" before yelling, "Locomotor mortis!"

    Another tiny stumble, though for a moment Kerry thought Zombie Boi was goin' over the side of the runway. But, no: it kept shuffling towards him, likely in search of wizard brains.

    Kerry almost started laughing, but since Madam Chai was staring hard he decided to hold it in. Instead he did a shuffle step forward, thrust out his wand and yelled, "Locomotor mortis!"

    The jiang shi stumbled so hard Kerry thought it was going over. It didn't, but it did come to an almost complete stop, as if it was getting its bearings.

    This is a free attack! he thought, remembering Madam Chai saying if they almost went down you could launch another and not have it count against you. So two more--

    Kerry jumped on it right away, whipping the wand down and forward like he meant it. "Locomotor mortis!"

    And again with the lurch and it almost falling--but, no. Damn it! This is like that lock! But Kerry didn't lose it. If he lost it he was going to screw up, and if this was the real thing, he'd get bead fast like that.

    Sighting the jiang shi up Kerry took his time, and when it started to move again, he let his attack fly. "Locomotor mortis," he said, this time more like a statement than a war cry.

    This time there wasn't a stumble; the jiang shi went down this time, its legs bound together like they had been glued. Yes!!! Kerry did a bit of a victory jig on the runway; it was really more like he bobbed up and down a few times, but it felt good.

    Doubly so since Kerry had never been in a fight. Confrontations, yes: but where fists where thrown, never. Kerry would just cut someone up with smart-ass comments and be on his way. This is more than a confrontation; this was, literally, throwing down.

    And one day I'm gonna have to do it against someone here.

    After a minute the jiang shi got to it's damaged feet and once more stumbled his way. "Screw this," Kerry said aloud. "Here comes the pain! Locomotor mortis!"

    Watching the Cernunnos boy come so close twice she was satisfied to see him score on his last two attacks, the final one actually twisting the ruined leg enough to make the jiang shi tumble off the runway.

    Ramona waited for the boy to finish his little dance of victory before pronouncing the final tally. "Your test is complete with two successes: 5 points for Cernunnos." She gave the boy a sideways start. "And Kerry: we will work on your technique in time. You are very inconsistant."
