Encounters

The humanity had changed ever since the "Demons" had invaded the world. Humanity was once at a verge of extinction, but after the success of merging process, which allowed us to manipulate the same phenomenon as them, humanity had created a boundary between the safe areas and the dangerous areas. Only thirty percent are the safe areas, humans had begun to produce individuals to act as a combatant against them using the newly found asset, the magic. This is the story of Evan Walker, a desperate student at a magic academy, who will be experiencing encounters.

3. The Entrance Exam

"Encounters

The Entrance Exam

"Attention the new coming students, you are to be reported to the auditorium for the entrance exam. I repeat. New coming students are to be reported to the auditorium for the entrance exam."

Shortly after the announcement had echoed throughout the hallways, the young child began to exit from their respective rooms to the hallway that had lead them to the auditorium. The smiles and the grin of excitement could be seen from their faces, wondering how amazing it would be to be using a magic. Evan walked toward the auditorium without speaking to another children. 

What had awaited these wondering children were the thousands of diamond-like fragments of crystals floating in the stage at the middle of the auditorium. The black background had caused it to resemble that of a star.

"Every one of you children are just like this tiny crystals," Edgar Roberts, the principle, held one of the fragment up to the audience(children)'s direction. He then continued.

"What is MAGES program to you?" He asked the question toward the children, and with enthusiastic tone, children raised their hands in competition to answer their question.

"To fight against these monsters!"

"To save the world!"

"To make the world better!"

All of their answers were childlike, as expected, but the principle continued.

"All of us have different reason to be in this program, but we have one thing in common: We are trained in here to fight against those monsters that have been invading us for years. Your relatives, your friends, and your neighbors are always in danger because of them. No one in this generation lives without fear. I need you children to promise me that after receiving this crystal, you will devote your determination and effort to protect what you have."

This statement was meant to be at the understanding of an eight year old children, but the message seemed to be rather universal to anyone who was living in this time of the world. The principle left the stage with grand waves of applause and Simon Simpson, the assistant director of MAGES project, hurriedly leaped to the top of the stage. He placed his exquisite leather suitcase on the ground and prepared to make a speech to the audience.

"Hmm Hmm..." He started out with a cough.

"I am Simon Simpson, the assistant director, and I will be managing your synchronizing process."

Evan felt unknown intimidation from this person. It wasn't that his expression or fierce or his posture was intimidating, but it was the meaning behind his words and the unknown origin about them that had been worrying him or no reason.

"Mmmmmmm..." Evan narrowed his eye in suspicion
