The Secret of Castle Hill, by L&K
Chapter Twenty-Two ~
Tizania led us to yet another wooden door, and, again, shoved us inside.
We were in a large and spacious room, with a huge circular table in the middle. There were about fifteen computers, each with a chair beside it.
Ms. Prim, our escort, walked over. "Please take a seat." She said in her usual stiff voice.
I sat down, Dinara and Logas taking places on either side of me. A few minutes later, another group of students arrived.
The computer flared on.
"Just answer the questions." Ms. Prim ordered.
I looked at the first question.
"Please state your full name."
I shrugged. Easy.
I typed- "Alora Ragorn Swynneth."
The screen flashed again, and I read the next question:
"What is your favorite color?"
I exchanged glances with Dinara. She shrugged.
"From what city did you come?"
"Day of bith?"
I paused, then typed in- "A bow, and a knife."
"Which weapon are you best with?"
I answered, "bow."
Another question- "Have you passed any of the three trials? If so, which one(s)?"
I responded, "Yes, Shadow Trial."
"Were you injured?"
"Yes, on my arm."
"What do you like to wear?"
A strange question. "T-shirt and jeans?" I typed in, not sure what else to put.
"What is your favorite animal?"
Another strange question. I glanced at Ms. Prim.
"Cats, owls, horses."
I stared at the question. Friends? I glanced at Ms. Prim again. She was standing, arms crossed, watching us.
I stared at the question. I turned to Dinara.
She's a friend. I'll type her name in.
So I typed- "Dinara."
Frowning, I also typed in "Logas," and then "Frenn."
I shrugged, the added "Jalock" and "Lily" to the list.
Slowly, I decided to add a few more people.
"Tizania." She's been pretty nice, right?
"Jennica." Not that I know her that well, but the more friends the better, right?
"Brunce." "Fflewnya." "Zel." "Lazer." "Ylo."
I sighed, staring at my answer. Then I hit the enter button.
"That is all. Thank you." The computer flickered off.
I glanced at Dinara and Logas. They were done too.
A few minutes later, Ms. Prim said, "Please stand. You are finished for today."
"Some quiz." A boy muttrered, heading out the door.
"What was the point of that?" Dinara asked me, as we filed out of the room. "I mean, favorite animal?"
"It was pretty strange." I agreed.
We were silent for a while.
"Now what?" Lazer said, joining us.
"I don't know. Mabye we go back to the dormitory?" I offered.
"Or the lunch room?" Dinara suggested.
We decided on the dormitory, since none of us were hungry. Lazer opened the wooden door, and we headed inside.
The dormitory was empty, except for a few people. Frenn and Logas were in the corner. He must have beat us back.
Also there was Jennica, who was typing on a computer.
"Strange place, this Castle Hill." Dinara said.
"I heard it used to be a school." Frenn piped up, overhearing her comment.
"A school?" She echoed.
"Yah, a school." Frenn replied.
"What happened to all the kids that were studying here then? Where did they go?"
"I dunno. Mabye they became warriors. Like us."
I stared at my feet, Frenn's words echoing in my mind.
I seems strange, but I have to admitt he is right.
I'm a different person now.
