Fantasy Drabble #323 "The Rhythm Of The Heat"

It will boil.

If I concentrate hard enough, if my mind is clear and orderly, if I maintain my focus: I can visualize each individual atom, find the tempo, speed it to make them dance faster. It isn't even that difficult, once you know the trick. It will boil.

It's the last test. I've failed it twice: nerves. I can do it in the study-room, late at night when no one is watching, but in the crowded examination theater…

If I don't make it happen today, Teacher will demonstrate it one last time, with the blood still in my veins.
