Wings. Part 6

Rose sat in her room and thought about the day. Even if her talk with Sebastian was all a charade she did love him. She had done the closest thing to lying that wasn’t actually lying, she hadn’t mentioned it. In a strange way it was lucky that she and Amber weren’t friends because she wouldn’t have a moment to spare. She cried real tears and didn’t open her eyes again until Medaday at 5:30. She slowly made her way through day after day. Learning to be a Mage was extremely boring. All he did as make her repeat the fire ball spell until it was perfect, then Ice Blow, then wind rush, it was boring. Unfortunately it was due to “Inner conflict” Max had described how if you have a inner conflict it makes your magic weaker. She had noticed that even though he knew quite a lot about magic he never used any. He also was quieter then he had been before Sebastian, he only spoke to inform her. She had be in Helio for 6 weeks when he told they had a test, that day, right then. Max lead her to a large room she had never been before. “Stand on that white line.” Rakmend said from his balcony. She stood on the line and everyone around her moved away. “You were all chosen for this group because you all started around the same time and none of you have any particular powers that would put you in the lead.” Rakmend announced. “You will run five miles top 3 will be written down as a possible warrior… GO!” In a instant everyone was wearing white track suits and we were on a track, the same track that rose practiced on 9 out of 10 days. It took Rose 19 minutes to run the five miles, she was #1. No one really noticed or cared. At the end of the race they were all suddenly back in the large room and they were told to once more stand on the white line. “Now is wresting  you will each be given a partner who is close to your height and weight… Go!” Then everyone was wearing same track suit and they were standing in front of there opponent. Rose was partnered with a sad looking girl with twig arms and stick legs. “I might be skinny but I’ll beat the stuffing out of a monster like you!” She yelled angrily. Rose lifted both fists, faked a punch and swiped her foot under the girl’s legs. The girl laid flat of her back. “How long does my partner need to be on the ground for me to win?” Rose asked loudly. Some laughed. “They must admit defat.” Rose turned to the girl and said, “say uncle.” The girl laughed a pained laugh, “never.” She said. “Then get up.” Rose said. The girl slowly go to her feet and Rose punched her in the face, “get up or say uncle.” The girl got up quicker this time. Rose let her get in a punch, then returned it with 2. One to the stomach one to the nose. The girl now looked pretty beat up, she was missing a few teeth and her nose was broken she likely also had a few cracked ribs, her wings were now wrapped around her in a defensive possession. “Um… I think my opponent has blacked out.” Rose shouted. Two angels with black wings ran over and grabbed her and carried her to the infirmary. “Rose and Wither are now to be pared up with each other, Wither will you please walk over to the glowing ring.” Rose looked down and saw there was a large, now glowing ring around her, around 7 meters in diameter. A teenage boy around 15 -16 year old with large muscles and a smiling face. Rose’s heart dropped, she didn’t want to fight this boy… he looked too much her brother. “Hi my name is Luther Wither.” She smiled a soft smile then something occurred to her, she was still here because she beat someone else, so he must have beat some else. Perfect! they both thought Luther because he considered girl weak and emotional people, Rose because she had a plan. Rose smiled shyly and lied, “Hi I’m Lily.” Don’t show your emotions Rose thought. Heh it’s now my catch line. Luther stuck out his hand and Rose took it, they shook hands. Luther didn’t let go. He flipped her over his shoulder and she lay on the floor unmoving. “Too easy.” Luther said proudly continuing louder, “Hey my opponent…

Meanwhile- Rakmend, Max, Sebastian.

It was a marble room like all the rest. There were two chairs, on occupied by Rakmend the other by Sebastian. Max was standing behind Rakmend. They were looking at a large glass screen showing all the different battles but they only watched Rose’s. “I thought you said she was well trained!” Rakmend yelled at Max. “She just flipped by her second opponent! They watched and listened to Luther say “Hey my opponent is dow…” Then Rose swiped her leg under his feet and was flat on his back. Rose was not one to be violent but she hated him. She sat on him and punched him till he passed out then she stood up and to the side so the medics could take care of him. “That is what I want to see.” said Rakmend. Sebastian looked shell shocked, then he said, “Is she going to become a teacher like Max?” “No she will be my personal guard, with Max.” They watched as Rose beat person after person, some she only hurt them enough to send them on there way, others she beat the stuffing out of. At the end without announcing the winner, Rose, they went to the big room. They went through Core work out, sword fights, Swimming, attack drills. Finally they where transported somewhere other than the big room. Every one was wearing their robes once more. “Okay all now is the most important part of all your lives, The warriors will now be decided.”
