The matriarch – part 17
They have chosen me! Trusted me, expect me to lead and take care of them.
I will grow up to the task.
I have a lot of plans; make leadership more even-handed, closer to the community, I want to create the possibility of frequent participation of the whole colony in directing us all. Think of sharing the task with a number of responsible persons in a way. And most of all, my dream: making sure that no one is forced to leave, except for security reasons. Work to be done.
I was installed immediately, didn’t even have the time to get used to the idea. Carol dropped by to congratulate me. I am too busy to leave and also I’m not allowed to just wander about alone anymore. Luckily it won’t take long before Manny will be old enough to come and see me.
