HOLY CRAP! HOLY CRAP! HOLY CRAP!

There were not enough words in the English language to describe how Frankie was feeling right now about this duel. His emotions were all over the place. He was ecstatic that he was going head-to-head against Queen Bee Cambridge, determined more than ever to show her what he was made of and that he was totally future Auror material. The excitement and determination, however, was matched with nervousness and despair. There was no way he could beat an Auror in a duel, and he knew that Alexa couldn't be bribed to take it easy on him.

Everything was going to be alright, though. Right now, as he was walking to the centre of the platform, the prefect was feeling fairly confident in himself. Prior to the duel, he had been reading up on some new duelling material and practising his nonverbal spells. He was ready for this. Or, rather, as ready as he possibly could be.

Normally the blond would have given his opponent a smirk, a sure sign that he was going to do whatever it took to come out the victor. The smirk wasn't plastered on his face this time, though. In fact, his face was expressionless, his blue eyes staring right into the pair across from him. His mouth didn't open to iterate the usual smack talk. All Frankie did was bow, turn on his heel, and get in position on the other side.

Without hesitation or warning, the sixth year made was quick to point his wand at Alexa and flick right at her chest. "Rictusempra!" An silver light fired out, and the boy was already waving his hand around for the next set of incantations were already popping in his mind.

"Ventus!" Frankie shouted, not batting an eye as a white flash erupted and flew toward Alexa's general direction. A few seconds after, ropes followed due to a nonverbal Incarcerous. To be honest, he didn't feel guilty at all for casting multiple spells in such a short amount of time. Alexa was used to that sort of thing, right? Right.

His wand remained pointed at her, his grip tightening around the handle. He let out a silent breath. Would there be enough time to produce a shield or was he going to have to duck for cover? Whatever was coming his way, he was ready for it.

Oh Merlin, a duel. Not YATI training, not skill qualification training, not an actual mission but a duel. Lex hadn't had one of those in ages. When was the last time she cast a spell without the intention for it to cause sever damage? It was all very nostaglic, in fact it brought her back to her own duels here. Back then, she'd spent more time on offensive magic than defensive and her shields were of the questionable variety--but that couldn't take you far in the real world and she'd had to address it.

Now she had to address the issue of her arsenal. What would be okay for casting? Lex took in the expressionless face of the Gryffindor. She remembered when he'd just gotten there. She'd had to take him and all his little year mates to their Common Room on the night of the opening feast. He'd always been a spunky little thing, making this stoic Frankie a little odd but she'd go with it.

The Auror bowed (haha when's the last time she bowed before hitting someone??) then spun on her heels and counted out the necessary steps.

On an average day, Lex exercised constant vigilance. Having done the demo, her guard wasn't lowered in the slightest. It was for that reason that she didn't immediately try casting. Frankie was a Gryffindor. There was a high chance he'd hit before he thought to shield and in truth, so would she a few years ago but right now? "Protego Maxima!" The invisible shield from earlier returned only seconds before the first spell exploded against its surface.

She watched the spells go up in brilliant light one by one--the last, admittedly took her by surprise as she hadn't heard him cast it but an explosion was an explosion so she wouldn't complain. The moment his spells stopped, she lowered the nearly impenetrable shield. "Avis!!" Followed by a quick, "Oppugno!" She watched the flock of conjured birds make a beeline for the boy, squawking and making the most raucous fuss they could as they descended.

With his hands possibly tied, Lex wasted no time in continuing her assault. "Deprimo!" Nothing to fracture him, but he'd feel a great weight if he didn't get out of there.

Well, he expected his first two spells to not do anything to Alexa. She was an Auror and probably saw those ones coming a mile away. Frankie, however, was a little disappointed that her shield blocked his nonverbal spell. His face might have dipped into a small frown when he saw the rope disintegrate following the exploding lights of his prior incantations.

The moment he heard the bird-conjuring charm, the Gryffindor knew exactly what was going to happen next. He had casted the spell combination loads of times, and there was no way he was going to let a bunch of birds attack him. "Protego!" Up went his invisible shield, and the birds flew right into it with a POP! each. Puffs of feathers could be seen gradually falling to the floor.

He heard her say another incantation, though he didn't quite make out what she had said. As a green light approached him, the blond thought he could sidestep the spell in time. But, as he was about to take a stride to the left, the spell hit him and the immediate feeling of heaviness overcame him. Merlin. Was this how that one buff dude from Greek mythology felt all the time?

Teeth clenched together, Frankie tried powering through the spell until it's effects passed. Surely he had enough energy and strength to do so. However, as the pressure increased with each second, his knees gave out of him. It was at that moment he made a shield-like movement with his wand before he ended up his face planted on the floor.

"Fi -- Fin -- Finite!"

Relief. No longer feeling the weight of the world on his shoulders, he quickly jumped back up on his own two feet. He eyed the dirty blonde, quite certain she enjoyed watching that, before he made his next set of moves.

"Serpensortia!" Frankie shouted, a black serpent conjuring from the tip of his wand. As it slithered toward Alexa, hissing angrily and bearing its fangs, the prefect knew that wouldn't distract her for very long. So he next casted a silent Langlock and followed that up with "Levicorpus!"

It was just as she'd suspected; so taken by the birds, he miscalculated the speed and direction of the actual attack. Child's play in truth but the Professor had made them to understand that everyone was to leave the dueling arena in one piece. Doable, very doable.

Lex watched the boy fall to his knees--and yes, she'd be lying if she said it didn't amuse her but unfortunately, the amusement was of the small variety. The young woman quite missed the sound bones made when the full force of the spell took form. Frankie merely had the added weight and he handled it well enough. She nodded once as the boy freed himself the burden but that was all she did. Her wand was at the ready but she would wait on him before casting--not because she was taking it easy but because it was always important to know what your opponent was about before you dived head first.

Hazel eyes locked on the snake for a moment shortly after its appearance; angry little bugger wasn't he? However, he was not her target. Lex was certain she knew what would be coming next--a spell of course. The question was simply which one?

She didn't concern herself with the snake slipping ever closer. Until it was in decent proximity to do damage it was a non-factor. The glance down, however had her missing the raise of Frankie's wand and though she didn't see it coming, the young woman felt the hit and the subsequent movement of her tongue to the roof of her mouth.

He got one on her and she would let him have another; she knew she would the moment she heard him cast it. With the snake now set to lunge, the Auror allowed the Levicorpus to take her out of its striking range and into the air. The snake snapped at her but being this far from the ground, it received very little of her attention.

Lex cast a silent 'Fumos' but the true cover came with the silent disillusionment spell that she used to properly cloak her. Now it was time to make the Prefect dance. Alexa removed the langlock but kept the levicorpus as it provided a nice vantage point from which to do this:

"Bombarda!" Cast in the direction she'd last seen him, but just in cast, she sent another explosion just a little further ahead and a "Confringo!" in the opposite direction. The dark smoke came to life with brilliant colour as the explosions went off. He would have to take action and when he did, she would find him.

He was a little confused when the Auror didn't bother to deal with the snake. Was it not really that much of a threat? With careful eyes, he watched the snake lunge for Alexa ... and she just let herself be hoisted into the air by her ankle to avoid the attack. He wanted to be disappointed that she had used his spell to help her out, but he was too impressed to feel that way. That was wicked! He was definitely going to remember that sick maneuver.

Even though she was hanging upside-down, Frankie was not about to let his guard down. He was expecting her to do something. What that was, he did not know. But what he did know was that he needed to up his game before she decided to stop playing with her food and demolish him.

Smoke then blocked his view of her hanging body. He didn't bother casting any spells just yet. He had a feeling in his gut that Alexa had more up her sleeve and that he'd be a fool to start wandering around in the smoke. This was definitely not like duelling Dante, Maggie, Zeke, Henric, or Hugo. Not having any cues to what was about to happen put him on edge. But all he could do was stand there and wait before making any sudden movements.

The first explosion occurred not too far from his foot, which caused Frankie to jump back as the snake he conjured moments ago quickly slithered away to find refuge. As another explosion sounded just ahead of him, the boy moved again. Then there was a third explosion, which he somehow managed to duck. The boy's heart was pounding, his adrenaline sky-rocketing.

Not even bothering to get rid of the smoke, he decided to use this to his advantage as Alexa surely was. The blond verbally casted the feather-light and supersensory charms on himself, making his footsteps harder to hear and improving his hearing and eyesight.

Frankie then took a few steps forward, carefully listening and looking for the Auror. He paused for a moment to cast a silent Gemino, creating a double of himself, before moving again. The double was moving in the direction he last saw the woman, whereas he was now veering a little to the right.

He hoped that Alexa ran into his double before his actual self. Faux Frankie could take one for the team by soaking in all the damage while the real him waited for the right moment to release the incantations that were begging to escape his lips.

Ah, so those were his next spells of choice, she would let him have them. The Auror could have just as easily cast the same on herself but she didn't see the problem in letting him have some advantage or another. So no, Lex remained silent and let the boy get extra-sensory aid.

Her plan was simple enough from here. Frankie wouldn't still be standing there after that round of explosions and the fact he bothered to soften the sound of his footsteps told her he actively had plans to walk through the smoke. Tsk tsk. Lex reached for the rubber band on her arm, using it to tie up her hair so it wouldn't hang down and reveal her location. Couldn't just have the boy walk into invisible hair, surely it would have tipped him off.

Now it was a matter of waiting.

Footsteps, the careless sort in a clouded room. She heard them getting closer.

Sure enough, a figure began to emerge through the smoke. All the walking had led Frankie right into her...sorta. Alexa looked down at the boy, set to relieve herself of the levicorpus at just the right moment but then...something wasn't right. Where was his wand? The young woman squinted from her spot in the air but the closer he got was the more evident it was that the boy...did not have his most useful weapon on him. A surrender perhaps...? That simply wouldn't do.

Once the boy was under head, Lex reached her wand down to whack him as hard as she dared in the head. Things became even stranger as the boy...just kept walking....? Did he...er...not feel that? To be sure, the Auror whacked him again but not even a flinch. That was enough for her and she had a fair idea of where this was going and what this 'Frankie' was; a magicless clone. In truth, it was the first she'd seen anyone gemino themselves and she found herself questioning the dynamics but based on general knowledge of the spell, she was pretty sure she knew where this was going. It explained the lack of a wand, as those couldn't be magically duplicated but it didn't explain why she could still hear his footsteps--unless the feather light was cast before the duplication...because magic didn't get transferred that way. This was a classic example of a loose end that should have been tied up. Always cast on the clone after, always.

Alexa ended the levicorpus at last but not before casting a feather light charm on herself to prevent the loud thud. The landing went smooth enough, before she grabbed the thing by its robe, pulling it against her. One arm wrapped from shoulder to shoulder and her chest to its back, she raised her wand to it's neck.

Lex nudged the thing forward. This was her bait now. It was the only sound in the arena. Come out, come out wherever you are, Frankie.

With his super senses, Frankie was able to hear his double's footsteps clear as day. He realized then that he probably should have casted the feather-light charm after producing his clone, though at least he'd know where it was at all times. Wherever the Faux Frankie was, he was sure Alexa wasn't too far behind. Surely the double was enough to throw her off, even if it was for a brief moment.

Speaking of the double, he could hear it approaching him. Even though the smoke was still present, the charm that had been casted make it fairly easy for him to see. Some smoke patches were thicker than others, but that didn't bother him terribly much. What bothered him was that Alexa was being ridiculously quiet. To be honest, he liked it better when she was setting off explosions all over the place.

The Gryffindor didn't remain still, however. Instead he sidestepped the slowly approaching footsteps of his duplicate and began circling around it. He was still quite convinced that Alexa was near as it make no sense for that double to be walking around still. Unless, of course, the Auror was using that as bait or a shield -- after all, he was a lot bigger than her.

And then he saw her, or at least a part of her for she was strategically hiding behind Faux Frankie. The wand didn't go unnoticed, seeing that it was raised to his double's neck. Without hesitation, for it was only a matter of time before the real him was found, he casted a nonverbal Homing Spell and Expelliarmus.

Would that work? Frankie really didn't know, which was why he continued moving. With each flick of his wand, purple firecrackers and green and red sparks shot out of his wand and ended up in random directions. The first soared to the far left, then directly behind him, up toward the ceiling, straight ahead, and lastly the far right.

As the smoke lit up in colours once again, he added on to the light going off in the arena. White for a simple Banishing Charm (aimed at his double so it couldn't be used as a human shield), orange for a Scorching Spell, and gold for the Pimple Jinx.

Your move, Alexa.

THERE he was. It hadn't taken him very long to find her at all, which worked well for her. Waiting had never been her thing. Lex watched him get closer, watched him circle the clone. Were it not for the thinning of the smoke in some areas, his lack of footsteps might have kept him hidden but Alexa did spot him and she didn't let him out of her gaze for as much as she could help it. The young woman might have cast at him then and there but she was decidedly curious about what else he had up his sleeve and how he planned to best her next.

As it turned out, he was trying to disarm her. Lex could have deflected it but....what was the fun in that? Nah, Lex let it slip into the great unknown of smoke.

She didn't move an inch as the fire crackers went off--not even to retrieve her wand, all she DID do was cling to the clone and wait for it to die down. Poor thing took the one that flew straight forward dead on. It hardly had any uses after that. In fact, she would guess that it couldn't take another successful hit with the way it was already starting to disintegrate so, Lex let it go....wherever Frankie banished it to.

With that shield gone, there was absolutely no reason for her to stick around. That would have just been asking for it. Alexa hit the ground immediately and from there she rolled. The upside to having someone cast at you in rapid succession, was the difficulty some had changing the direction of their spells on a dime to follow a moving target.

From her new spot on the floor, Alexa looked up at the boy--or rather his silhouette that became all the more apparent after the bright light show just now. "You've taken my wand. How will I defend myself?" She asked offhandedly. "I'll need to find something else." There seemed no real urgency in her speech. As it turned out, her own wand hadn't fallen that far. She could sorta make it out just a little ways off--but that's not what held her attention. With a subtle gesture of her hand, Lex non-verbally threw an accio at the wand he was holding. On a larger scale, wandless magic was a little iffy for her but these took hardly any effort by now.

Had he not been extremely excited at the fact that he had just unarmed her, Frankie would have been rather suspicious as to why Alexa wasn't giving him everything she had. The duplicate was in her hands now, and surely she knew exactly where he was by now. She could easily take him down before he could even mumble the word. Thoughts like these didn't come to mind, however. HE JUST DISARMED A FREAKING AUROR.

A grin was plastered on his face at such a feat. His eyes watched the wand slip out of her hand and fly into the air. The blond didn't see where it landed though. The smoke was gradually beginning to thicken up, a sign that his supersensory charm was starting to run its course. He did hear it land though, so at least he had that to go off of.

He creeped forward slowly as his double was hit with a red spark and then stopped once it had been banished to the other side of the room, bits of it disintegrating. Now that Alexa's shield was gone, he pointed his wand squarely at her chest. He was about to cast another spell at her while she was just standing there doing nothing. But then she started rolling around, which made the boy quietly groan.

With each roll she made, Frankie followed her, shifting his body and moving a few steps forward. He was itching to cast again, but he wasn't terribly confident that he'd be able to cast at her in the smoke if she decided to roll around again. Maybe he'd get lucky if...

She was speaking. The words made him want to grin again, but there was something about the way she was saying them that didn't seem right to him. There was no urgency in her voice. Did she LET him disarm her just moments ago? Not. Cool. Alexa.

Eyes narrowed when she mentioned that she needed to find something else. What was she talking about? There was nothing else. Her wand was Merlin knows where, and he had his in his own hand. Shrugging off her comment, he began the wand movement for the Muffliato Charm. The incantation went unsaid as he was quickly distracted at the strange tugging his wand was doing. It wanted to get away from him, which only meant that she was trying to take his wand from him. "Oh hell no!" More words were muttered under his breath as he tried gripping onto his wand tighter, the pull of the wand taking him forward.

Gradually the wand began to slip out of his hand. As the last of it was released, Frankie lunged his hand toward it without paying attention to where he was going. He was determined to not let Alexa get a hold of his wand. It was that determination that led him to tripping over her and trying to catch his balance before landing on the floor wandless.

Immediately Frankie looked up, knowing that it wouldn't be long before Alexa started shooting spells at him. Luckily there was something within his reach for him to grab without having to get up: it was Alexa's wand. Without any hesitation he snatched the wand and, ignoring how wrong it felt in comparison to his own, he shouted, "Confundo!"

At first, she thought the wand might have been putting up resistance, but then it began all too clear the boy had no intention of letting the wand go. That....was not her concern, his wand was and she wouldn't let up. It moved closer--as did the boy--and her hand extended in anticipation. What she didn't expect was for Frankie to come tripping right over her, bringing him down to her level.

Ohai bud, welcome to the ground.

And look, he'd collected her wand for her, for the limited good it would do. Her wand was fiercely loyal to her as she was sure his was. It's flexibility left it unfavourable in many ways. Frankie's might have been the same. Consequently, his was slipped into her holster. She'd be wanting her own. No telling what cheap shot his might pull. The Auror wouldn't take that chance. Could have been Dogwood for all she knew and that sort didn't bend kindly to others.

"Protego!" Her shield spells were fairly new on her wandless magic practice agenda, consequently, she still couldn't non-verbally cast them. Something to work on.........eventually.

He'd only cast once though, and it was nothing tremendously shield shattering; the young woman had seen her wand cast a stronger confundo. She would have to move quickly. Alexa reached over and grabbed his feet, like she would if she was trying to pull herself up but really she'd cast a silent colloshoo on them. As if she were ready to climb onto him, Lex moved closer, silently adaero-ing bits of him to the floor as she went along.

Quick as that, the Auror got to her feet, casting an Expelliarmus at him, followed by "Stupefy!", a silent 'Aguamenti' which she followed with a "Glacius Duo!". Interchanging between verbals and nonverbals.

Weak was the only word he could use to describe the Confundus Charm he had casted. Alexa's wand did not like him in the slightest, and Frankie didn't like it either. It didn't feel right, it didn't have the same warm sensation his own wand gave him. Speaking of his wand, the blond watched her slip his right into her holster. That was probably a smart move. He was willing to bet that his wand would like her just as much as hers liked him.

But did that mean his spell would hit her? There was a glimmer of hope, but it quickly disappeared the moment it bounced of a shield. Alexa could do some wandless magic? Well, she certainly had that advantage over him. He was only just beginning to be comfortable with nonverbals, of which he was certain he wouldn't be able to do with whatever kind of wand the Auror had.

Suddenly she was all over him. A look combining frustration and puzzlement was on his face as he tried kicking her off, not caring the slightest at this point if his foot gave her a good kick to the face. Only his feet couldn't move now, and it didn't take long for him to discover that certain parts of his body weren't moving as well.

No. This was not how he was going to go. He was not going to allow Alexa Cambridge to beat him that easily.

As the Auror got to her feet, he uttered "Finite" as quick as he possibly could. He did so three times, red light coming out of Alexa's wand each time, for he was sure that her wand wasn't going to succumb to his command without him forcing it. But he managed to free himself as the wand suddenly flew out of his hand, soaring into the air and landing somewhere feet behind him. Frankie didn't care about the wand anymore. It was useless to him. And he had to save his own skin. Immediately.

He rolled and rolled and rolled. The prefect heard the spell that Alexa had casted, and he was tempted to yell for Hirsch, for him to intervene because the Auror clearly had crossed the line. A Stunning Spell! Those weren't allowed in the Duelling Club, or at least it wasn't the last time he checked. It would have been nice to know if that spell was fair game. He would have loved using it. Not that it mattered now that he was without a wand.

All the rolling he was doing was starting to make him nauseous, but it at least helped him avoid being knocked unconscious. The Gryffindor, however, was unable to dodge the others. As he pulled himself up on his own two feet, he was dowsed in water and then cold air instantly hit him. His dripping robes froze up, icicles taking shape. The colour of his cheeks turned pale and then began turning a light shade of blue. Frankie found that he could move, but it was very minimal as the intense cold prevented him from making any quick and drastic movements.

He gave Alexa one last look before closing his eyes, his teeth chattering and his body shivering like crazy. This was it. This was the end. Goodbye, world.

Aaaaaaaaand there went her wand.

Lex smirked, proud at what might have been the finest instance of protest she'd seen in the longest while. Even more, the boy was now wandless and rolling. While he did so, Lex kept her focus on him, moving her aim as he did until finally he'd stopped.

The Auror watched Frankie rise to his feet. She was all set to cast again but then.....he was hardly moving....

Alexa cleared the smoke around them, decidedly in need of a better look and that was when she saw the blue cheeks and the way the boy was turning into something of a human popsicle--that and the closed eyes. Was this it then? Surrender? He was unarmed and now almost completely immobile. She supposed it was bound to happen.

The Auror undid her disillusionment charm, then walked over to collect her wand. She'd missed him. It felt like forever ago that she'd last cast with him. "Incarcerous." Just as a precaution, nothing personal.

Once tied, she undid the freezing charm...just 'cause...you know...it looked kinda uncomfy and all that.

An easy grin slipped onto her face. "You weren't half bad, Paton."

Did Frankie realise that these Auror duels were partly for his benefit? Because it wouldn't be great for Frankie to go into Auror training without some experience on what it was like to duel like an Auror. Here's hoping that by dueling against one, he was able to pick up tips that a non-Auror like Hirsch couldn't give him.

And the boy didn't let the man down.

A proud smirk was in place on the man's face as he watched the duel take place. Spells were shot here and there and he was proud to see that the Gryffindor was making use of his surroundings and not backing down in the process. He was also glad that Miss Cambridge was putting the boy through his paces because a challenge was what he needed. Nothing too life threatening but a challenge nonetheless.

It was a pity that the smoke had made it very hard for him to see some of the duelling action. It was also a pity that it had to end the way it did.

There was no use for the magical shield. Not now, anyways. Rushing forwards and towards Frankie, Hirsch cast a heating charm on the Gryffindor to help with the unfreezing process. "Excellent! That was remarkable!" He was proud, to say the least. "Thank you for your time, Miss Cambridge. I really appreciate you coming in today." And he did want to hear her verdict.

"Well done, Frankie," he said, patting the boy on the shoulder, "I hope that helped you, given your chosen career choice." Who knew, maybe he could be shadowing Miss Cambridge one day.
