6. 1st Day
Today is the day. All I have to do is swear in, sort of like a mayor. I'm so nervous, they say if you mess up at all they will make you Voiceless on the spot.
"Welcome. Are you nervous? Of course you are. Why wouldn't you be? All right let's do this and get back to work." The mayors says irritably.
"I give my honor and respect to the World of Philber. I promise that the Voiceless will be shown no mercy. I will protect the people of Philber with my life. I will only think to the benifit of Philber." I vow on my life.
This is so weird, I have spent my whole life picturing this day but this is not what I was expecting. I bet most people don't picture an angry chubby man. I mean that in the nicest way, I'm just not trying to be mean but I most certainly don't mean it to be nice.
We spent the whole day preparing for the Voiceless trip to see who is worthy. I had to have special training. It is a lot more complicated than anyone would expect. There is five gazillion rules. The trip is going to be four days long. We get to pick who we want so naturally I picked Cranda. I'm sure you are thinking that I'm going to give her special treatment but I can't I am doing my duty to my people.
"Hello deary, I heard you are going to be working with Cranda. I just want you to know that I am not pressuring you to give her special treatment. She was a nice girl but she couldn't understand the fact that dreams are not reality. Oh, I can only imagine how much you miss her. She probably misses youmore than she misses me. Oh don't cry. Everyone is grieving. It is said to be one of the worst out comes of the test ever. Of course not your results those were exeptional." Crandas' mother says to me on my way home.
"I miss her loads. I am not supposed to so I would appreciate it if you didn't tell anyone. I will tell her you miss her if you want me to," she nods to signal that I should tell Cranda her mother misses her, "If you want, because i know that without Cranda coming home with money for your family, I could split my payment and give you have," she starts to argue but I keep speaking, "I should get going if you ever need to talk you know where to find me." I walk away.
