Portals, Cake, and LemonsIt was all about timing, which was hard to do when your being thrown through the air at near amazing speeds. Ayano wasn't sure how she did it the first go around, but she did, she though, as she sat back and reflected on her life up till then. Her childhood was unremarkable, having lived in an orphanage until she was adopted by some people who worked at Aperture. They saw the ability to adapt in her, as quick a learner as she was. They moved her into a motel-like room, teaching her at the same time that they tested her.
Then GLaDOS happened. Well, Caroline and GLaDOS happened. The people at Aperture were forced to transfer Caroline into the GLaDOS project early, due to Cave Johnson dying from moon dust poisoning. There were mishaps along the way. GLaDOS still held Caroline's resentment for Aperture, seeing as they practically killed her. Ayano was amused by it all. At those times that GLaDOS tried to take revenge, Ayano was usually in a test chamber, and thusly given some freedom. The

Since Round 1 had technically started already, she could attack that furry beast in the shower that was her opponent. She upended the can onto the floor, spilling all of the gas around her (but not on her). Once that was done, she threw the can into a corner and took out a box of matches that she had found around the circus. Fire being her natural element, it wouldn't be too surprising when she lit the match and let it fall to the floor. She took a satisfying breath in and let it out, the flames growing but not touching her.
Unaffected much by the heat, Lyson smiled and closed her eyes. She rose her hands and the fire followed them, raising away from the floor. she licked one hand and a small fire zoomed off, away from the showers.
