    The Secret of Castle Hill

    Chapter Seventeen ~

    Proffessor Finn led us into a small room, with one table and three chairs.
    We took our places, and Finn pulled another chair seemingly out of nowhere.
    "Well, what's this all about?" I asked.
    "First," He said, "I would like to congradgulate you."
    "For what?" Frenn asked.
    "You are the first group to ever emerge on their first try with little to no injuries." He glanced at my arm as he said this. "And you finished the course faster than any other student that has ever trained here at Castle Hill."
    Frenn and I exchanged glances.
    "But... what exactly was the purpose of sending us in there?" I asked. "I mean, look at all the people who were injured! They could have died in there!"
    Finn sighed. "It's a risk we have to take. If you aren't prepared for battle, there's no coming out of it. And if you know what a battle is like, then you'll do better."
    "What I don't understand," Frenn began, "is why you need us. I mean, if you have all these robo-monsters, can't you make them do the fighting for you?"
    "The thing is," Finn explained, "the monsters can't be used in a real battle. I'm guessing that Logas already informed you that the monsters are electronic, and we use them to train you as well as watch you, correct?"
    We nodded.
    "Well, we've programmed them to attack any alien person that enters the course. We don't actually send them after a particular student."
    "So you don't really control the monsters?"
    "No. We can shut them off if need be, but we can't make them do anything. Another reason is that our computers have to be very close to the monsters to make them work. If we sent them into battle, we'd have to have soilders with the special devices that keep the monsters going. The thing is, if we did that the monsters would end up killing the soilders and probally destroy the device as well."
    "So a battle would be lost before it was begun." Finn concluded. "Does that answer your question?"
    Frenn nodded.
    "Proffessor, what was the blue orb?" I asked.
    "Hardly anyone asks about the orb." Finn said. "We use the orb to test you, as well as learn more about your personality, strenghts, and weaknesses."
    He paused before saying, "When you touched the blue orb, you witnessed something that you feared greatly. For example, you saw your family dying."
    I shivered in rememberance.
    "You were the first to touch the orb, and without a moment's pause, so I can guess you jump into things without thinking them over carefully."
    I shrugged, then nodded slowly.
    "And I was a bit foolhardy, picking it up after I saw what happened to Alora." Frenn added.
    Finn smiled. "Yes, I suppose you could say that."
    "And the green orb." I butted in. "How were we supposed to know there was a key inside? How were we supposed to know there was a room there at all?"
    "Usually, the doors are open and if you enter the white door, the monsters ambush you. As for the key, the words on the orb explain. 'Find the key, break free'. You have to break the ball to get to the key, and find the key to get out."
    I nodded. "I guess that makes since."
    "Most things don't make sense. But I'm afraid you will have to leave. I must speak with Dinara, Lazer, and Zel, if she is ready to walk. I'll send for someone to show you to your dormitories. Good day." With that, Finn left the room.
    Shrugging, Logas, Frenn, and I followed him out.
