Chemistry

I am supposed to create a "possible" mechanism for the reaction
2A + B --> 2C
when the rate law is Rate=k[A][B]^2.

This mechanism can include any letters (but must obviously include As, Bs, and Cs). Preferably it should be 3 or more steps including at one slow (or rate determining) step, at least one fast step, and at least one fast forward & reverse step.

I have puzzled with it for awhile and cannot find any that work...help?
