It took Lucas a while to make sense of what Sandhu was saying, but mostly because his brain had started wandering and he found himself frowning at his apparatus. So...... according to what she was saying, his was a systematic error, yeah? Because even though he was the one who had set it up - and he was human, that was for sure - it would affect all of his results? Because friction?????

This was hurting his head.

Realising that he was still...... standing there, he started disassembling his apparatus and, grabbing the pieces and his bag, moved them to the back of the room to dump them away. Not dump, but, well, dump. And he didn't want to be the last one standing in the middle of the room when the next part of the lesson started.

Which was lucky, given what the activity was.

Depositing the bean bags to the correct boxes on the other side of the room sounded easy enough and he hoped that his skinny frame would actually help him now. Did it matter that he wasn't very agile? No! Of course not! But if it didn't help him slide past the pendulum pillows as quickly as easily as possible, then, well...... what was the point?

He didn't know how long he'd stood there, thinking, but it was long enough to see other people already start jumping into the activity so, there was nothing for it. Grabbing an orange bean bag, Lucas held it right above his head and...... uh, stood there. Again. But he was doing something, this time! He took some deep breaths, mentally preparing himself for whatever was going to happen, and......

....... then he ran.

Did he have a plan? No. Did he want to scream? You bet!

In fact, he might've let out a tiny scream under his breath as he ran straight for the side where the orange box was. He was dodging this pendulum and dodging that pendulum and trying not to think about how much his arms wanted to rest right now. Maybe holding the bag above his head wasn't a good idea? Yeah, may-

OOF!

Maybe he should've been paying attention to his sides as well because, before he knew it, one of the pendulums came swooping in and knocked him straight off his feet. Did he know who pushed the pendulum (Archer)? No. All he knew was that he was now laying on the floor with an orange bean bag on his chest.

..........

"Ow?"
