7. Failing

I push my way through the crowd and jog back to my room, tears prickling the back of my eyes.  I’ll have to pack fast, then sneak out before they can take me back.  I can go to-

“Alexa!” I turn and see Tanzy running towards me. Seeing him brings a fresh wave of anger over me, and I explode.

“How could you do this to me!? You knew I wasn't ready and you knew that if I failed I would be sent back to the castle! How could you condemn me to such a fate!?” I bang my fist against a wall, screaming in anger. “How could you!?”

“Alexa, what are you talking about?” I glare at him, why did he have to make things harder?

“I failed, Tanzy, and now I’m being sent home.” His confusion breaks into a smile, the troll actually smiles. He lowers himself to his knees so that he is level with me.

“Alexa, you didn't fail. You ‘killed’ the man who attacked you! That was the whole point of this test. It’s one thing to attack one of your sparring mates, but it's a whole other thing to kill someone.  Some kids didn't 'kill' their attacker, so they are the ones who failed. But you did. Alexa, you killed him. I knew there was a hidden talent in you.” I stare at him in shock, sure the old werewolf is playing some sick joke on me. 

"You're lying." 

The corners of his eyes crinkle. "No, I'm not."

My heart starts to pick up its rhythm. “You mean...I passed? I’m really not going back?” He smiles at my shocked expression.

“No, you’re staying right here.” The anger drains from me as I wrap my arms around his neck, squeezing with all of my strength. I hear a choked laugh, and feel his hands pry me from him.  “Now go enjoy the feast. Tomorrow is a big day.” He gives me one more smile, before shooing me in the direction of the training room.

I'm staying.
