The Dawn of Shadows Chapter 2

I stood up, and brushed the dust off of my clothes. No one paid attention to me, they were watching the current Breton getting tested. I cursed at my misfortune. I probably did not even deserve the name Stormwind anymore. I would be erased from the memories of my family due to my failure... A Faceless figure in a cruel world.
Where I would fail, others would succeed. Andore stood across from the mage, ready to cast the spell. When the stun spell rushed at him, his ward did not falter. When he was in contact with the spell, he absorbed its magicka, and directed a stun spell of his own at the old mage. The mage was easily able to counter the attack, of course, and all was silent for a few moments.
He walked over to Andore, who began to shiver in fear. As the mage loomed over him, he fell to his knees. “I’m sorry,” he pleaded “I-” He was cut off mid-sentence by the mage.
“Apologize?! For showing your extraordinary talent with magic?” He exclaimed, taking Andore’s hand and raising it to the sky.
“This boy is fit to be a Master Wizard!”
All of the Bretons cheered.
I felt no pride for my brother. Jealousy coursed through me. Why was he able to succeed where I failed? Why had the Aedra gifted him, but not me?
I could not bear to show my face to the other Breton children, so I kept to the shadows to remain unseen. I had always been good at that.
The city of Daggerfall was a vast place, but I knew my way around it well enough. I knew there was no point in returning home. I had been cast out of House Stormwind for good.
I walked the streets, taking notice of the different people littering them. Merchants shouted at people as they came by.
“Are you an alchemist in need of exotic ingredients? From Nirnroot to Daedra hearts, I sell anything you need from all over Tamriel!”
I peered at the merchant’s wares, before turning away in disgust. I continued to wander, before coming across an Orcish trader with all manners of weapons spread out on a display table. Interested, I came closer. An exotic-looking dagger lay among various swords, maces, axes, and bows.
“How much is that dagger?” I asked, knowing I had no money.
“Eh. 15 coins, Orchalcum weapons can only be forged by very skilled smiths.” he replied with a shrug.
“I think I’ll pass,” I said. There was only one way to get that dagger, I thought. And it might not be legal.

While the Dragon and the Eagle block the path to the Throne, they shall flee when the Lion roars!

I liked the build up you done to the test and the subsequent failiure in passing it. It's shocking and bewildering to be unable to pass something important, then afterwards be callously disregarded in favor of fellow peers. It allows for good character development; with some sort of realization that inspires or a brooding grudge that infests. Bitterness and envy is something many could relate to, and it's fantastic for story telling!

Looking forward to the next chapter!

Thanks! So far, I've written 5 chapters which will be posted every other day. The 6th chapter I'm currently working on, and I'm planning for 10 chapters, with the final chapter being released closer to the release date of ESO.
