It was time.
His opponent immediately took off, charging toward him. Michael didn’t budge. Instead he counted, one, two, three, and then spurred Black onward. Thrusting his body forward, he leaned a little to the left and lifted his lance into place. As his opponent neared, he leaned back and then, at the last possible moment, he thrust his body forward again. The man didn’t even have time to react before Michael was crashing into him.
