Eliza Doe

Hello, Eliza Doe
The time has come.

You are going from a Junior Puppeteer to a full Puppeteer. You will be going through the initiation, and finding a long term spouse. This is not optional. If you decide not to come, then you will be hunted and executed.

Trust me, I don't think you want to do that.

You are to report to the Scotland campus. For the location, please consult your parents. It is where they completed their initiation, and I don't think they would forget it.

You have 5 days to get there.

Go.

~ C. H., Head Puppet Master"


Eliza chewed on her lip as she read through the letter again. Her father had told her about the whole initiation and marriage stuff that she would have to go through and frankly it didn't bother her too much. She was more interested in the tests they would have to do. What kind of things would they ask from her? She had asked her father but he said every year was different so there was no point in guessing. Eliza let a small smile slide across her lips. She was excited. She placed the letter down on the breakfast table and sipped at her orange juice. She would have to pack right away. She didn't want to have to wait any longer than she really had to. It would be interesting to meet other people like her. The only other puppeteer she knew was her father and he was hardly interesting. Just as she was thinking this her father walked into the kitchen and sat down in one of the vacant chairs at the table.
'Morning.'
'Morning dad.'
Her father noticed the red wax seal of the letter almost as soon as he had sat down.
'Your offer letter?'
'Yeah, it says I have five days to get to the Scotland campus.'
Her dad smiled at her and she could see he was proud that she'd been offered her invitation. Eliza guessed that was because she was his only child and so his only blood line. She smiled back.
'Can we go today?'
'Sure.' Her dad stood up and walked towards the hall. 'We'll go as soon as you're packed.'

Eliza rushed upstairs and pulled her clothes out of her wardrobe and threw them onto her bed. After a couple of seconds of debating she decided she needed all of them and at least five pairs of shoes and she stuffed them all into her suitcase. Half an hour later she was in the car with her dad starting her journey to Scotland.
