Just because she had gotten Head Girl didn't mean for a second that Chaslyn could slow down and relax. She couldn't remember the last time she'd done such a thing actually. Possibly it was so long ago that she'd been too little to do much but eat, sleep, cry and go to the bathroom. Two of those things were rather luxuries at this point, one she wasn't supposed to do but couldn't stop at times, and the final of which, well, she was certainly allowed to make time for because the alternative was unacceptable. Not to mention embarrassing and gross. Still, she felt guilty if she took too long and always brought something with her to study just in case.

Mother's reaction to her getting Head Girl was as she expected-practically non-existent. That was how it had been when she'd gotten prefect as well. Congratulations from all her other relatives and nothing from Mother but a letter reminding her of the importance of doing well on CATS,to practice her activities, and that she should be starting a club. This time was a letter reminding her the importance of RATS, to practice her activities and that she needed to be starting a club.

Sometimes, she wished Mother would just say that she was proud of her and that she loved her, but it never came. Only when Mother was trying to paint Amity as a failure, a disappointment and a bad daughter did she ever seem to mention Chaslyn's accomplishments with anything like pride. She was only praised by Mother when it was at her sister's expense. It had been that way their whole lives. She felt awful about it, but she had to settle for that. That and not being yelled at.

So obviously, not signing up for library duties this year was not an option. She had to do it and she had to be Head Monitor. In fact it was more important to be Head Monitor this year than it had been last year because if the position was revoked, it would mean that Chaslyn had not done a good job, and Mother would be furious. She didn't even like it when Mother was furious with Father or Amity or Phillip or Aunt Alice, she certainly didn't like when Mother was furious with her .

She placed her name on the list for the last time.

Chaslyn Brockert, seventh year, Monitor
