Hikari was pleased to leave the annoying prick of a boy. Walking into the simulation room, she stood in the center and waited for it to come to life. She inhaled slowly and remembered what she was told. ‘One day, you’ll get to take the exams, just know the simulations look, smell, and feel real. For all intensive purposes, believe it to be real. Everything can hurt you in there.’ The voice faded out of her mind. She would make her sister proud; this was the day she had been waiting for. Hearing the teacher’s voice above, she glanced up seeing the timer and closed her eyes for a brief moment. “Gotta make this count”
Her eyes opened seeing the timer change from one to zero. Game time. Pushing off her toes, she relived the conversations, remembering everything she clung on to. She raced through the trees making sure to keep her senses up. The wildlife was almost too realistic sounding. Rounding a tree, she almost didn’t react quickly enough as a bolt of lightning shot down from the sky and hit the ground. Stumbling back, she regained her balance. “Magic” she muttered to herself. Mrs. Onyssa had to be close now. Leaping up she grabbed onto a tree branch, hoisted herself on the limb, and glanced around hoping to see her. The forest was thick, much too thick to see. She felt herself having issues breathing, the humidity was denser than she expected, she would have to slow her breathing.
Within a moment, a whizzing sound caught the tree ablaze causing Hikari to quickly leap to another. Her eyes scanning the area before noticing a slightly out of place color and quickly jumping down. Quickly rushing at the area she finally came eye to eye with her teacher who tried to welcome her with another lightning bolt. She was fast, quickly moving out of the way, using a nearby tree as advantage, and gaining momentum as she threw her fist forward causing the armor around her wrists to enclose her fist. Connecting with the teachers staff, she moved her other hand under it and kicked her in the stomach forcing to disarm her. Throwing the staff back against the burning tree, she took no time at all, as she tackled the teacher down with her fist but an inch from her fact.
“Rank C” Mrs. Onyssa said simply “You may stop this simulation now. “saying that to the boy she knew that was watching.
Slowly she moved off the teacher and helped her up before walking over to get her staff and giving it back. With a short bow, she walked out of the simulation and shot a glare at the guy. “Your turn maggot”
