Rowan: Trained Senses prepares you for the expected danger. But what if the danger is unexpected?
The RedShield slowly gazes at all the younglings. Rowan stops. He moves his neck back and forth. He encourages the younglings to do the same. Left and right! He approaches his chin close to his chest. The younglings do the same.
Rowan answers Sabo’s question.
Rowan: You protect your head!
Master Sabo puts his hands elegantly to his back. The RedShield discreetly activates a commandon his vambrace.
The younglings drop! They fall and screams of fear are heard!
The glass-floor slide opens with a great speed!
The younglings land on an elastic fabric! They have fallen a small distance! The drop was a pleasant one! They landed on some sort of trampoline! The younglings had their chin close to their chest! They protected well their head!
Sabo: CIRCLES! You will FALL! That is undeniable! So, you better start being good at it!
Rowan: CLIMB! Climb up or you will spend the night there!
Dimia feels the adrenaline! The excitement of something new. She likes this training. She goes first to the hanging ropes. And climbs!
At the top, Master Sabo offers Dimia his hand. The RedShield wants to help her. Dimia grabs Sabo’s hand and the RedShield pulls her up. The other circles join the climb. There is no other way to get out of the pit!
Rowan: Come! Grab the ropes! The basic necessary force you need is to carry your own weight! Use your hands and feet!
The younglings grab and climb the ropes! They climb to the stone plates. They push themselves up. All the younglings succeeded the climb. The ropes aid them so it would not be hard!
The younglings stand on the stone plates. Inside the inner stone circle, there is no arena.There is only a hole! Some gaze at it with pride. Others with fear.
Rowan: Good. You learned a brief part of the second lesson. “Pick yourself up.” Any guesses what is the first lesson?
Rowan: LEARN TO FALL! This is the first lesson in Shield Training!
