Headmaster Brockert
Fifth and Sixth years
Wed Jun 27, 2018 01:52

Most of the time things were pretty routine at Sonora. Occasionally, there was some annoying bit of trouble, this year being an illness going around. Fortunately, Mortimer's tendency to be generally unsociable had prevented him from exposure. And as a added bonus, the Quarantine had meant no grating social events to attend. So basically this had been the best holiday season that Mortimer could recall in ages.

Another switch was that Mortimer was actually hoping that a Pecari would for Head Boy and one he wasn't even related to at that. Normally, he felt they were irresponsible types who weren't good for anything but the merest frivolities of life regarding sports and parties. Things he quite frankly had no use for himself. And he generally regarded them as having no business being in such an important position-including his own son Eustace- even if it was generally based on a popularity contest. Well, there was a reason there'd been less than ten of them who'd granted the title within the last twenty or so years.

This year, well, Ben Pierce was the best of a bad lot. From what Mortimer had gathered in the meeting regarding the matter, there was absolutely no good reason for Kyte-and he'd thought some of his grandchildren had ridiculous names and they, at least, were spelled properly-Collindale to be even considered and he'd sooner hand over the position to the blind girl's service dog before than Mr. Collindale. At least the dog was good for something.

Which left the matter between Mr. Pierce and Mr. Umland, and certainly, while the latter was more qualified for the position than Mr. Collindale, Mortimer couldn't say that he wanted him to get it any more than he'd wanted to give it to the elder Mr. Umland after the incident.

As to the girls, he had no real preference. Only not the one in Pecari.

Once the fifth and sixth years were assembled, Mortimer rose and began to speak. "I trust that you all know why you are here today, to pick who will be the next Head Boy and Head Girl of Sonora next year. " With that the ballots were dispensed.
