The Testing

By Joelle Charbonneau

Immortals - Fall Out Boy (Lyrics)

Summary:

Malencia Vale gets chosen for The Testing along with three other friends from Five Lakes Colony. The Testing chooses whether you will go to Tosu City University and study to become a United Commonwealth Leader. Thomas and Cia become very close during the process of The Testing. Their alliance helps them through the difficult, and sometimes deadly, days and weeks of The Testing.

Conflict: Man vs. Self

Cia has to make many different decisions in the phase of The Testing and some wrong choices lead to horrible, or deadly, consequences. Also, Cia has trouble trusting other people during The Testing, and she has to choose whether she can trust herself while making difficult decisions.

"I take deep breaths. I force my legs to move. All the while I am wondering, If this room is from my father's subconscious is real, what else is? If my answers today don't make the grade...." ~ Cia's thoughts.
