I arrived at 7:45, as the sheet said. There were already about thirty people clustered around a bulletin board to see which testing room they would be in. My mom and I found my name, on the Auditorium list. So, we said goodbye and I walked toward the auditorium, hoping it wouldn’t be far so that I would get lost. The man at the door checked my passport and admission ticket, and then I went in and sat down. I pulled my pencils, calculator, and eraser out of my bag and organized them on the desk. It was getting close to 8 AM, and more people were sitting down.
Once upon a time, when men were still young on the earth, the Fairies were dominant.
Fairies were ruled by Lords, and occasionally a Lady or two. But Fairy Lordship did not pass from father to son, as with lordship of Men. Their system was far safer in nature, not to mention more mysterious.
