Ember looked at the five members standing in front of her, looking eager and interested. She had chosen them for various reasons, and she hoped they had been the right ones – some because they were known for great engagement in clubs, others because they had spoken up at their first meeting. One of them, Jane or Jay, had even read a poem – a pretty good poem, she thought, Ember had been one of those who clapped hardest.private to Ember Jones, Thea Knott, Jane Victoria, Morgan Stratton, Muriel Carroll, Stella Rose
They were standing in the room where this first meeting had taken place, but now, instead of bursting with members, it was empty apart from them. With a quick movement of her hand she signaled the others to take a seat. “Hello”, she said, her voice sounding croaky and high-pitched. She swallowed, then spoke on, the sound luckily back to normal. “All of you are here because I have sent you an owl. I understand that it might have left you confused, but we will come to the details later. What you do know is that we are preparing an introduction for new members now. This will be especially hard for you as you haven’t had this procedure yourselves, due to the circumstance that you belong to the first members, but…” She paused dramatically for effect, then had to smile at this. Was she putting on too much? Nevertheless, Ember kept talking. “But I’m sure you’ll manage really good.”
From somewhere on the ground next to her, she produced a small black bag. Little glitter particles were glued on it, making it seem like the night sky; it was her favourite one and she was determined to use it for this special occasion. “As soon as we have planned everything, you’ll need to instruct the seven new members who have joined this week. Every one of us, including me, will have to pick a slip of paper with a name on it out of this bag. That’ll be the student you’re “responsible” for.” She drew speech marks into the air with her fingers. “The plan is that those seven students will be the next ones to pass on the tradition we’re starting, so make sure you tell them everything they need - everything I will tell you in the next step!” Her eyes were twinkling as she said this, a grin slowly spreading over her face. “Here you go.” She passed the satchel to the student next to her.
In the first part of this thread, everyone will RP about arriving at the meeting and picking a slip. Please post a number between one and seven instead of the name you pulled; after your post, I’ll notify you about which student this number stands for. You can then edit the name into your RP and maybe describe your feelings about this member. Thanks!
Don't you dare mess with me!
