The Skipped Twelve

December, 31, 1993

This December saw the celebration of the annual aging ceremonies, including the important Ceremony of Twelve. On a cheerful day in the month of December, it was the day for the ceremony of twelve. One eleven named Jonas, was skipped and all other elevens were given their assignments. At the end the Announcer announced that Jonas has been chosen as the new receiver.

The Chief Elder said Jonas "has shown all of the qualities that a Receiver must have including intelligence...integrity...courage...[and] wisdom." If Jonas does not show these quality´s, he is most likely to be released or assigned another assignment. It seemed as if he was scared and nervous. Everyone cheered for Jonas as he was picked for an honorable assignment.
