Broken Strings

Who was playing that day? And why can't Eleanor forget the tune?


7. Chorus

“My name is Daniel Thomson. I am your Vice Student Body President. Please take a seat whilst I introduce the rest of the body.” The boy continued as he finished reading what she assumed to be her file. She nodded and took the seat that Daniel had offered her. Everything was so surreal she was beginning to think that she had fallen asleep in the back of the car. “Hello again.” She looked up from staring at her feet and saw the short girl standing in front of her again. “Oh, hello!” she greeted back, watching as 3 other students and Daniel re-entered.

“Well Miss Bryce, this is our Secretary Fiona Diamond” Daniel began, indicating a very beautiful girl who had her long ash blonde hair flowing down her back like a veil. Eleanor shook the girl’s hand and smiled politely.

“This is our Treasurer Vincent Frost” Daniel proceeded as a boy the same height as him but with messy, darker brown hair jumped forward and shook Eleanor’s hand warmly. “Call me Frosty!” he said merrily before noticing Daniel’s look of disapproval and stepping back with a smirk. 

“Our Historian Justin Mcgreggor” at this point the short girl stepped forward and shook Eleanor’s hand, avoiding eye contact. “Justin?” Eleanor re-affirmed, causing her addressee to turn a deep scarlet. “Yes. Justin. I’m a guy okay!?” he said firmly, his temper evidently verging on the edge before turning quickly and standing between Vincent and Daniel (an unfortunate move that simply made him look even more feminine).

“And finally, our Social Chairsperson, Harriet Spires.” Daniel muttered, noticeably turning slightly pink as Harriet stepped past him and gave Eleanor a warm smile. “Allo Eleanor, please call me ‘Atty” she announced with a thick French accent. Eleanor smiled back and nodded obediently. “Our President is unfortunately how do you say... Unavailable” Harriet continued, taking Eleanor by the hand and covering her with a wave of perfume, “So I will take you to your maison, and get you your uniform oui?” she announced, leading a bewildered Eleanor out of the room and out of the building.
