La, la, lalala, la , la
The moon spread its silver light over the Valley of Blood...
La, la, lala, la
And the people cowered in fear as the demon swept its foul stench over the land
La , la, lalala, la, la
And as its hideous minions snatched the new-born babies from their mothers' breasts
Lalalalala, la , laa
A hero rose up among the mortals, to conquer the Supreme King...
"Pah!" said Rosä as she slammed the heavy book shut, "what a load of crap"
"Rosä!" called her mother "shouldn't you be leaving?"
Rosä looked at the clock in alarm. It was 8:52 school started in 8 minutes!
"I'M LEAVING!" she yelled as she flew down the stairs ad shoved her shoes on. As the
ran down the road she remebered that in no less than 1 hour, she would be taking the
Tempus Exam of Summoning Spirits (TESS). if she passed this exam, she would
automatically gain entry into the Royal academy, and then, the Army. That was her
dream, to take revenge on those people, the Cücheleons, who killed her
grand-parents, and her best friend, Cherrie, whom they had tortured and burned before
Tears sprang as she remebered how Cherrie had pleaded with the Cücheleons,
how she had begged them to take her life and spare Rosä. And then, when the time had
come, she had sung Tempus Vernum until she had breathed her last. The Cücheleons had
allowed her to take her ashes with her when they threw her into the desert and left
her to starve. She had been found by the Army, who had reunited her with her mother.
She stopped at the crossed golden staffs that marked the entrance to the school,
fingered the golden urn that held Cherries ashes, that hung on a velvet choker around
her neck, wiped her eyes, and stepped through.
