Exam (5)

So that's Liam… I guess he's not like anything I was expecting, I guess it's because I was more used to him in the later phases of the novel, where he's more mature, but now he looks like a naive church boy.

I could see in the distance, although it was not very clear, it was good to see him for the first time, a character that I accompanied for so long. He was someone who helped me countless times, when my world was not so cool, his world was filled with adventures.

I saw his struggle, battles, victories and defeats, as well his end, and I came here to change this end.

My attention drifted from Liam to another girl who approached the edge. She had light blue hair and blue eyes, and she walked towards the edge in a playful posture, reflecting her demeanor as she reached the other side.

Unlike all the others who used their magic to pass through the abyss, this girl simply walked the rope as if she was doing a magic trick, she raised her arms on the height of her shoulder, and started to cross the abyss.

But I could tell that it was all an act of her, she was having fun, she feigned almost falling countless times, and in all of them she would simply swing on the rope, do some acrobatics and then return to her original position.

And she was doing all that laughing, like she's having the time of her life. She finished crossing the abyss upside down, using her hands to finish the few meters of the rope.

"Emily Lancaster, passed!"

She's Emily Lancaster, one of the other girls accompanying Liam, but of all of them she was the one I liked the most, she's definitely my favorite character.

Most of the female characters in this novel have complex backgrounds with many goals and complexities that add depth to their character. Most of the female characters, those who are at least in Liam's circle are well developed, but Emily is not.

And I'm not saying she's a bad character, it's not that, and it is not that she doesn't have enough screen time, or anything like that, it's just that a character like her doesn't need it.

She doesn't have all the tons of drama that the other characters possess, which although makes her less developed, due to the lack of goals or drama.

But I think that's what makes her my favorite character, her lack of drama and goals make her 'free', free from the plot itself, seeing on screen made me laugh a bit and forget for some time that this novel was a whole drama and tragedy all the time.

She added a light tone to the story. But I guess the thing I most like about her is her personality, she's someone simply free, free from many things, free of many things that I wished to be.

She's my favorite character as well as the character which I most envy in my entire life.

The rest of the exam went smoothly, many other participants tried, many failed, but some others managed to reach the other side, all of them which I didn't recognize, so I assumed they were not characters.

Although they may be, I'm really bad with description, faces and things like that, so I may forget some faces and characters. Damn, I wished I could tell my past self to pay more attention to the character's appearance and all that.

As I was thinking about the character's appearance I remembered, another person walked towards the edge to take the exam. A girl.

Light brown hair and blue eyes, she was very beautiful, and in the same moment I laid my eyes on her I recognized her. But it was not exactly me, but Iske who did it.

The girl summoned a spirit which resembled an eagle but it was totally in flames, it was quite an interesting sight. And the spirit helped her go to the other side.

Reaching the other side the voice announced, "Julie Rose, passed!"

She's Julie huh, another one of the girls surrounding Liam, although she's the most distant one, she's a cool character. I liked her goal and the way she achieved it, that's what I used to think before, but since I'm now Iske, things have changed, I can't let her complete her goal, if she does, I'll end up dead.

Brushing off those thoughts I decided it was time for me to move as well, I walked through the remaining participants and as I walked towards the edge, the attention followed me.

Reaching the edge of the cliff I grabbed a tiny rock off the ground and marked it with my magic, then I released my mana and threw it with all my strength towards the other side.

And after I saw it that passed through the abyss and reached the other cliff, I used my magic.

"Exchange"

I switched places and appeared on the other side of the cliff.

Reaching there the voice announced, "Iske Grace, passed!"

Everyone who was at that side turned their attention to me, the announcement of my name made people start whispering around me. Everyone was looking at me.

But some continued looking at me, and didn't even bother to hide their gazes. Lucas, Ella, were one of them. They are not exactly looking at me, but at Iske Grace, as children from noble families they recognized Iske.

But they didn't take any action, they simply looked at me for another couple of seconds, with confusion in their eyes. And after that everyone stopped paying attention to me.

Well, not everyone.

"Iske Grace!" I heard a female voice say as she approached me.

Turning to my side I saw Julie coming towards me, with bloodlust and hatred in her eyes.

Julie Rose, a very important character in the novel, a very good character, which one of the best arcs in the story, she's distant and helps Liam occasionally, but she's much more focused on her goal. And it's her goal that makes her so interesting for a reader.

Her goal is simply, she wants to kill the man who killed her older brother. And who doesn't like a revenge story right?

She grabbed me by the collar and said with a threatening tone, "What are you doing here?"

The man who killed her brother was no other than Iske Grace, four years ago, and in the novel, Julie is the one who killed Iske.
