Rosä stepped into the dark examination room. Her footsteps echoed eerily around the
room. Lit up in the centre of the room, was a simple chalked circle. She stepped into
it, and a booming voice rang through the room, reverberating against the walls and
hidden windows, "BEGIN!". She spread her hands, closed her eyes, and took a deep
"Mu ne so ra go to me sa LEI!" and once again, the ball of fire grew in her hands and
showered sparks."To za ve na so ra SEI!" and the fire spirit evolved into the
human-like figure. She moved her hands, and the out of the spirit's hands grew whips,
and he swirled them around the chalked circle. It lit up the dark and revealed the
examiners sitting on a high bench, their eyes wide in amazement.
With one last florish, the fire spirit vanished in a shower of silver sparks that
turned to blossoms and floated to the floor. The examiners took last-minute notes,
until finally, one of them rose and said "Rosä Talloy, trainee spellcaster, you have
been accepted into the Royal Academy. Your certificate and Magic staff will be given
to you by the ajudicator at the front desk. Congratulations!"
"T-thank-you, sir," she said breathlessly. She bowed and turned to go.
"Ah, one last thing, Rosä" and the examiner waved his staff and a gold badge
materialised in her hands. "This shows you have been awarded a scholarship into The
Royal Academy. If anyone question your status, show them this badge."
"Y-yes, thank-you, sir"
"quite alright my dear"
Bowing again, she hurried out of the room. As she stepped into the classroom, she
squinted against the glaring light. Walking over to the adjudicator's desk, she
fastened her badge to her black top. The adjudicator glanced over his gold-rimmed
spectacles. "Rosä talloy again? "
"Y-yes sir, I've come to collect my staff and certificate."
"Ah...passed the exam did w-," he gasped as his eyes fell on the gold badge on her
chest. "V-very well... Here" and he handed the staff to her.
"The certificate will be with you in a few days time"
"T-thank-you very much sir"
Bowing, she turned away, and looked at the golden rod that was clenched in her fist.
Finally, she was on her way to becoming a Charm/Spirit-caster!
