New Receiver Of Memory Named Jonas

In December, the ceremonies begin! New Children get their names and become Ones. The Chief Elder goes through every ceremony celebrating each age. But most importantly the Ceremony of Twelve. The Chief Elder calls the Elevens, soon to be Twelves, to get their Assignment. Number 18 is called up and gets her assignment. After she is done the Chief Elder skipped Number 19 moving on to Number 20. At the end of the ceremony the Chief Elder apologizes for her mistake. She calls Jonas up and says “Jonas has not been assigned, Jonas has been selected.” The Chief Elder said Jonas has been selected to be The Receiver of Memory.
